Summary: Jensen's life is falling apart; with his formerly booming business going bankrupt, he's losing his girlfriend, his money and his direction. To add insult to injury, he finds himself doing community service as a janitor in a mental hospital after having racked up one too many speeding tickets. But between scrubbing toilets and sweeping floors, Jensen saves the life of a young patient named Jared and is shocked when he follows him home. Weirdly, Jared seems insistent about wanting to stay with Jensen despite them being strangers, making every further discussion futile. Running out of time and too compassionate to leave Jared all alone, Jensen makes a momentous decision: instead of escorting the shy young man back to the hospital like he probably should, he lets him tag along to his brother’s wedding, and together they embark on a journey through the summer-hot, golden South that will shake both their lives to the very foundations.

What a great story this was to work with! It inspired all sorts of ideas for art, though I'm afraid I had to give up on one of them because it was too difficult to execute.

A big thanks to my author, who fully participated in the development in the art, which I greatly appreciated. I also received some excellent guidance and suggestions from [livejournal.com profile] sophiap, who is graciously beta'ing all the art I've been working on this summer.  And last, but not least, a big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wendy for running this show once again.

Fic title: My Only Sin is I Can't Win
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] matchboximpala
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Rating: G
Summary: On January 1st following their 22nd birthday, everyone on the planet switches bodies with their One for twenty-four hours. You learn about your One from their friends and their family, and then after you switch back you live happily ever after. At least, that's what the movies say. But Jensen swaps into the body of an 18-year-old kid, and outside of those weird art-house movies no one really talks about what happens when your One is younger than you, or how much work everything is.

Notes: I hope this story is eventually completed and posted, because what I read of it was terrific. Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] wendy for managing this amazing challenge for another year. A big thank you must go out to [livejournal.com profile] sophiap who beta'd this art, as well as four other projects. Her input was invaluable. Thanks so much, lady!

How lucky am I? I was able to snap up one of my top three choices of prompts in the first round of [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang claims and another one in the second! As usual I am afraid I won't be able to do them justice, but I have IDEAS!

Story by [livejournal.com profile] dimpled_sammy
Summary: Dr. Jensen Ackles is a renowned neuro-psychologist and pioneer surgeon in the field known as Mind Mapping, a procedure that involves entering a coma patient's mindscape and sifting through their memories and trauma to help the patient wake up from the coma. It’s a complex procedure that requires strict rules and no lingering remnants of the visit. But while working with his current patient—Jared Padalecki, male, 24, attempted suicide--Jensen discovers he’s in too deep. He’s formed a dangerous emotional attachment to Jared that could have devastating consequences. He finds himself in the difficult situation of risking his own mind and sense of self by losing himself in Jared. But the more memories he visits, and the more he gets to know Jared, the more Jensen realizes how important it is that he save Jared’s life, whether it costs Jensen his identity or not.

I look forward to working with you both!

Hey all! Just wanted to poke LJ at large. There still are about 50 fics to be claimed at [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. And I'm not joking when I say some of the best writers in fandom are unclaimed, as well as some newbies who are going to become your new favorites.

Please, PLEASE help me spread the word that claims are still going on. And if you've been hesitating, now is the time. Go claim something! The power of Jensen Ackles compels you!


-----------------
You need to join the community to see the posts and claim.
matchboximpala_dw: (Gag reel 5 car)
I have my alarm set for 6:15 am tomorrow so I can get up and make coffee before I sit in front of my computer waiting for the claim post to open.
I have been on FB chat for a long time tonight talking to a friend who gave me some news that has freaked me out a bit and I am having trouble concentrating, which is making it difficult for me to get through these story summaries.
On top of everything, I have acknowledged to myself that the timing of this challenge couldn't be worse. I am out of town between May 18-29 and I still have to finish my art for [livejournal.com profile] spn_meanttobe and the [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang before I go. Plus two projects at work I MUST complete before I leave. I am thinking I should not claim at this point and maybe instead be a pinch-hitter artist. But that makes me very sad, because I already have seen so many stories I'd love to work with.

I have no idea what I am going to do.

ETA: Before going to bed I turned off my alarm and after I had my coffee I got online to check the status of the claims. Four of my top nine were still available! I decided that was a sign, so I put in a claim. There was one (JJ-17) that I REALLY REALLY wanted, and I have such great ideas for, but there is no way I could accomplish what I would want to do within the time frame, so I had to give that a pass.

Anyway, I got the first of the three choices I put in and now I am going to have to buckle down and get to work.

ETA: And now I have signed up for another one. Because I am a crazy person.

Title: Not Broken, Just Bent
Author: costsofregret
Artist: matchboximpala
Genre: Romance/Angst, Non-AU Futurefic
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Warnings: Minor Character Death, Infidelity
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 30,400k

Summary: Seven years after Supernatural ends, Jared is living a life far away from Hollywood and the memories of his past. As a Texas high school teacher he thinks his daily life is protected from the heartache that colored the ending of the show, but a chance encounter with a man and his dying brother brings back the ghosts of those years.

--------------

I really enjoyed the story and it inspired many different ideas for the art, but as I am just starting out with photoshop I thought I'd attempt something modest.
