mangacat201: (Devil's eyesight)
Fic title: BRIGHT LIGHTS AND WHISKEY KISSES
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] wetsammy aka wetsammywinchester
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] mangacat201
Genre: J2 RPF
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki
Rating: PG (Art only); NC-17 (story)
Word count:24,443
Warnings: Violence
Summary: When alcohol is outlawed during Prohibition, speakeasies crop up all over New York City and people can't get enough of drinking, dancing and live music. Jared's editor at the newspaper assigns the naive young reporter to write reviews of the popular but illegal nightclubs, but he has no idea what he's in for. Meeting Jensen, a bootlegger with a secret, only complicates the situation even more as Jared learns that underneath all the glitter and fun of the speakeasies lies the stink and violence of organized crime.

Artist's Note: Wow, what a wonderful ride. Because despite this being actually the fifth(!) BigBang I've participated in as an artist, I'm still unsure every time whether I've got the chops to do it, or whether my vision to illustrate a story will be enough to do it justice, especially since the time from claiming to drafts always seems so short. However, this time around time was literally not an issue because in reading the summary I already plenty of ideas spring fully formed into my head and could hardly have had more fun in researching the bases for 20s fashion and putting these manips together inspired by the visceral and iconic storytelling in the writing. I have literally no idea how I managed to put together so many pieces this year and it was my utter pleasure to learn new techniques to make my ideas come alive on the screen. This is also the first time I've tried animated art, a fantastic crossover between my vidding passion and photo manipulation I've been branching out into. I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] wetsammy a lot for providing me with the perfect inspiration through her story, of course [livejournal.com profile] wendy for her tireless work every year in making the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge a forum for so many talented people to come together and create fabulous things (I swear, one of these years I'll actually submit a story again) and my friends and cheerleaders like silkylustre who gave me feedback on the drafts and made them better. Anyway, for those of you still reading, please enjoy the art and go read the story, it IS fabulous!

So, I feel this joyous (and largely completely unaccidentally overlooked) occasion is as good a time as any to give you a run down of things going on in my life, fannish or otherwise.

So, I got a JOB. For those who haven't heard the news yet, that was a long time in coming and while it is not exactly my dream job in all regards, it's the first one I hold that pays all my bills, all onRamble on... )

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH, I'm so excited, I wasn't sure I was even going to claim this year, but there was this one summary that just snagged my attention. So I couldn't help it.

Anyway, author of SPNGen N° 4, please PM me as soon as you see this, I need to go to work right away *g* (I hope you're post-stalking the claims as every good author should, ehehehee), please don't be shy!

Word Count: 61.5k
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: inaccurate depictions/descriptions of addiction and recovery/mental health issues/medical intervention/the IT industry/Texas, self harm, blood, unsafe driving practices, M/M sex, mentions of past parental death, unhappy childhood, messed up family dynamics/relationships, little itty bit of homophobia.

Vid-Rating/Warnings: PG-13, allusions to alcohol abuse and related behaviour

Summary: Jensen is trying to start a new life and not complicate it with a past he isn't ready to share with potential girlfriend, Genevieve. But when she introduces him to her troubled brother, Jared, things get complicated fast and the men end up with a secret of their own. But there's another secret, one which neither of them holds, one that will not just break their lives apart emotionally but could have bloody, fatal consequences. If Jensen can pick his way through the minefield of lies and half truths, he and Jared might finally have a chance at happiness – Sometimes you have to save someone else, before you can save yourself.


A/N: Big Bang's are not only challenges because authors and artists agree to set themselves big tasks, they're also always a bit of a gamble for both sides in the rush to describe the stories and claim the summaries and not really knowing what you'll get once the frenzy is done. And this year, I've certainly been paired with the most wonderful, supportive author in [livejournal.com profile] alexisjane whose story I read with pleasure for the great cast of characters, sudden twists and gorgeous visual scenes. Still, at the beginning I found myself really struggling with figuring out how I could and would like to illustrate the story with my medium of choice, which led to a period of denialist procrastination. But in the end, I was not going to let my author down and back away from a challenge and with her encouragement and enthusiasm, suddenly it all came together and I was able to create a vid that I'm really happy with because it gives you glimpses of the story and the central character dynamics with a teasing edge that will hopefully make you want to read it. So, thank you, [livejournal.com profile] alexisjane for your unending patience and squee, it was great working with you, thank you, mods for the incredible amount of effort you put into running this challenge so smoothly and thank you readers/viewers for coming back every year to share this time with us!

Now, he’s torn between wanting to regain everything he gave up and striving towards the holiness he gave it up for.


SPOILER WARNING: The video as an art piece for this story is less of a teaser and more of a companion piece, therefore be advised that it contains extensive spoilers for the story as a whole. Don't say I didn't warn you, but now go enjoy!

A/N: Sooooo, can't believe this is already the second time that I'm participating in BigBang season as an artist. This year, again I didn't make the writer's deadline, but was lucky enough to find one story that spoke to me and that I thought I could make a vid for and I'm once again very pleased with the result. My dear author [livejournal.com profile] syngates_guitar was a fantastic sport, patient, supportive, squeeing, very excited and a pleasure to work with. I'm really glad that I could provide a great companion piece for her story, that was so rich in imagery and references to the show that I didn't have trouble at all putting this together. I really love participating in this challenge and I hope we can be around for many years to come.

oh and did I mention that I'm doing BigBang...?

mangacat201: (big bang11)

Alright guys of my fantastic flist,

like I told you in my last post, I had to give up my bigbang for exam reasons, which is why I couldn't make the deadline, so I've decided to make a Catbang instead. The way this works is pretty easy: I'm going to post the header to my story here - it's not quite finished but I plan to make that happen soon - so any of you fabulous artists on my flist (or people who have artist friends they want to point in my direction, because they might be interested) who would like to take up the story and make some art for it are welcome to comment on this post.

Comments are screened and in case of more than one person applying for the job, I will put all your names in a random generator to pick out who gets the call, I think that's fair.
I'll give you guys time till Saturday evening
to throw your names in the mix and whoever is selected will receive a note immediately (and the draft as far as I have it if you give me an email in the comments too). As for the time frame, I'd like to post in June but before the actual big bang posting starts, however, since we're not in a real challenge, time is relative *g*.

So, here is that header than:



Title: Roll the Dice

Author: Mangacat(201)
Pairing/Characters: J2
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16.3/~20k

Disclaimer: I neither own them because slavery is officially outlawed, nor am I writing a biography here folks, this is all fabricated.

Warnings: language, gore, grave injury, combat scenario, PTSD

 

Summary: When Pvt. Jared Padalecki gets gravely injured in combat, he receives highly advanced and experimental treatment that barely saves his life. He comes out of it changed, struggling with a shitload emotional baggage and the expectations of the people invested in his future in more ways than one. His biggest challenge however is facing the man who saved his life and made him what he is now.


Btw... yes, I've passed all my exams and I'm DONE now! It's a parade! *lol*

OK, guys, we have a WINNER. [livejournal.com profile] bflyw is going to bang with me this summer. Let's rock and roll!

Hey guys,
just feeling the need to share a few words with my awesome flist. Tomorrow I'll have my third oral exam that will at the same time be my last final. Apart from my thesis that's gotta be finished till Aug 1st, it's the last thing that's thethering me to university. After that I'll be done. Strange, strange feeling, but I'm telling you guys, i'm also ready for it to be the frick over. *g* Wish me luck.

Due to the exams coinciding with the Deadline like they did, I couldn't make Big Bang happen this year and it's a real shame too since I'm stuck at 16.3k or so. But I have a contingency plan that y'all are going to be hearing about tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Preparations and contacts for Georgia are well under way and I can't wait to go and see the USA for the first time (I hope that I'll have the opportunity to travel a bit, but I'll have to see about that concerning my job duties.)

Anyway, I hope you all are save, sound, and rocking the socks.

Besides that I'll have to go cat nap and dream up what I wanna do with that cat in the mandwich between two big, strong, incredibly beautiful men that my horoscope says I'm going to meet in May. *lol* I'm open for posing ideas, photo ops want to be well planned after all.

So, that's about it. Like I said, wish me luck and have a big ass fucking great time for the rest of the week.
Cat
