Two of my fave boyss
Me myself and I
It's all about me
I was trying out a tutorial I found in a photoshop magazine, and figured I'd make it with Jensen, instead of with the picture on the CD.

Think it came out pretty well :-)

Hug a Spike
Title: You Let Me Stand
Author: hunters_retreat
Artist: liliaeth
Genre: RPS
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 30K+
Warnings: Physical and emotional abuse, neglect, mentions of past attempted rape, dub-con due to a beta’s heat cycle.

Summary: Three years ago Jensen Ackles had been a feral beta, caged and dangerous to anyone around him. Three years ago the council sent Jared Padalecki and his team into the Two Forks pack to find out the truth about the claims of beta abuse and neglect. What Jared found was a vicious fight to take the pack away from the Alpha and mated to the feral Pack Beta.
Jensen was sent away to heal but Jared stayed behind to clean out the pack and see if it was worth saving. After three years though, Jensen is ready to go home and confront his past. Jared is hesitant but after their reunion at a Beta Right’s conference, he agrees. It isn’t a smooth journey though and not everyone is happy to have Jared as the Alpha of the Two Rivers Pack. When outside forces try to tear their fragile pack apart, will they be strong enough to stand together? Or will Jared and Jensen fall apart, and take the Two Forks Pack with them?

Notes: this was an awesome fic to make art for, hoping it works half as well as the fic it was made for :-)

9 hugs for Spike or Hug a Spike
Fic title: Fragments
Author name: shadowsong26
Artist name: liliaeth
Genre: Gen (with background het pairing)
Rating: R
Word count: 51,025
Warnings: Character death, discussion of possession and its aftermath, murder and torture and abuse, one character makes a suicidal gesture at one point.
Summary: In an attempt to talk Sam out of seeking Lucifer’s help with the Darkness, Dean tracks down the next best thing on Earth--Nick. As it turns out, he’s closer than they think, and the trace of Grace left in him when he was dispossessed may be vital to defeating the Darkness. Unfortunately, Sam and Dean are not the only ones chasing Archangel fragments, and at least one other person on the trail seems willing to kill Nick to get what they need...

Notes: so glad that I was able to work for art on this amazing fic. It was especially nice to work with a character other than my usual ones for a change*g*

What is it with this week?

Roxan, a cousin of mine (daughter of my mom's youngest brother), died this morning.
Cause of death still to be determined.


Fuck

Pretty sure she wasn't even thirty years old.

My brother and his girlfriend just had their first baby. The poor dear was born almost three months early.

The newest member of the family will be called Jasmien, and weighed only a little over a kilo. But she's under good care so hopefully she'll be fine.

I'll describe 10 pairings that I like in one sentence or less, and you try to guess which pairing I'm talking about. Some are canon, but not all are. All pairings are two people, unless marked "OT3". :) At least one pairing is an RPF pairing, but I'm not telling which one(s). ;)

1. Her obsession with him started out of a sense of guilt, it turned into love where he supported her until he found out the truth. Now they've both been violated by the monster that destroyed her.


2. She's a survivor, an abandoned child, who is finally finding what she's meant to be, he was a child soldier forced into a destiny he never asked for. They found companionship in one another. (Finn/Rey, Star Wars)


3. She's the last survivor of a world long gone, he's the best friend of her last remaining relative, they are one another's strenght when they need it most


4. They were childhood friends, brothers in arms, until one of them was taken and turned into a weapon, it was only their love for one another that brought him back. (Bucky/Steve, Captain America, mcu)


5. They are both sons of neglectful fathers, given far more responsibility that any person should have to carry at too young an age, now they find strenght in one another to keep going


6. One is a kid who had to grow up way too fast, take on far too much responsibility and become a leader when no one, himself included thought he was ready for it, the other is a dark broody anti-hero with a tragic past who finds redemption and inspiration in a young hero's desire to be more than a monster.


7. A Broken young man who didn't dare to truly live until after he died, found love with a religious fanatic who finds a new purpose when he denies his cult leader's demands (Kieren/Simon, In the Flesh)


8. One is a leader who's closed herself off from all the pain and suffereing she's been through, he's the saracastic monster who finds himself inspired by her to be a man. (Buffy/Spike, BTVS)


9. One is a dark broody hero, the other is an ancient who manages to see the world into a new light, both find new ways to see the world through one another


10. She is a demon, he's an angel, both are forced to work together towards the same goal for different reasons. (Mazikeen/Amenadiel,Lucifer)


Hoping these are somewhat clear, though not too obvious.

Edited to make the genders on 10 a bit clearer

Author:Hunters Retreat
Artist: liliaeth
Title: Choices
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17 for violence and overall themes.
Word Count: 25K+
Warning: Slavery, mentions of past rape, past non-con/dub-con, torture,
Summary: Jensen Ackles was a man on the run. Sure, his name was revered by the Sentient Android Rights Movement, but he was just another face in a sea of J-N_S56s. He had won his freedom in a court of law, but his previous Mistress and Master cared little for the law. Jensen had been on the run for almost ten years and he'd stayed free because he was smart and kept to himself.

When Jensen met Jared, he tossed him out the door as soon as he could. Jared wasn't pushed away so easily though. Jared came back but unfortunately, so did Jensen's former mistress. On the run with Jared at his side, Jensen struggles with his emotions, and the fear that his programming might be taking over. Jared is far more tempting than anything Jensen has ever faced. How can he keep them both safe when he's fighting with himself while on the run from the people who want to put him back in a gilded cage?

11 hugs for Spike or Hug a Spike
I've been home for the past month, and my doctor just gave me an additional two weeks that I have to stay at home.

I had a fall with my bike in the beginning of january, and ended up with a crack in my shoulder joint.

Work hasn't been annoying about my sick leave, but my direct boss seemed a bit annoyed that I had to give another extension :-(
I know it's not that she begrudges it, she was just annoyed because there's three of us with sick leave, and she doesn't have enough people to do replacements, so I still feel bad about it. It's just that right now, I can't even fully raise my arm over my head, so there's no way I'm going to be able to start working again, hoping that I'll be back in order once this latest extension is over.

Help wanted, I’m looking for a alpha reader/cheerleader to help me finish my teen wolf big bang. I’m a bit behind, though it should still be doable.

Fic’s main pairing is scisaac, intended main characters will be Scott, Isaac, Derek and Deucalion; Boyd and Erica, Allison and her dad, and of course Melisa will play a large part as well, as does most of the Teen Wolf cast. It’s basically a superhero story.

Any help in talking through the plot and helping to keep me on track would be immensely appreciated. I’ve got about two weeks before I need to get my rough draft sent in. (since I’ve been known to write 10k in less than a week that shouldn’t be a problem, if I can keep focused)
