Fic: I Don't Care If I Never Get Back
Author: [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: When a stranger barges into Jensen’s apartment and insists he must take Jensen to a major league baseball game, Jensen’s first, second, and third impulses are to kick the guy out on his ass. But if he can just get past that third, Jensen may find he can make it home.

A magical baseball love story, based on the 1989 movie A Field of Dreams.

My ramblings: I LOVED WORKING ON THIS SO MUCH. Maybe too much, since I went through 3 different versions of cover concepts before finally being like OKAY. And then I ran out of time to do anything else. /o\ Though I'm not big on sports of any kind, Field of Dreams was one of my dad's favorite movies and I have such nostalgia over it--I'm sure plenty of ppl are right there with me. Add working with Dei to the mix, with her delightfully delicious writing, and I think I kinda tripped all over myself in my excitement. She knocked this fic so far out of the park, y'all! GO SEE.

In closing, I leave you with the unavoidable "if you read it, they will come" line. Because I'm too weak to resist. :D



ETA: ACK! Flaky, terrible me forgot to credit the pre-made vectors I edited to save time. Corn and peanuts from freepik.com.

I was so looking forward to you working with Dei, I knew you'd do something lovely, and you have! The muted earthy colours are so pretty, and so are the boys. I think my faves are the alternative banner and the corn growing from the End. Fabulous work!

I did indeed - and I'm loving your RBB early-bird too - are you going to do another piece?

Lol, can you tell certain things have taken over my life? XD I am planning to do a second piece, hopefully a little less predictable--we'll see if I can pull it off. <333

ha ha sometimes art really does imitate life, huh? I'm hoping to get a second piece done too - so many ideas, so many touch choices, so little time...! Hope you do manage another, I'm greedy like that.

Well, it's either that or I just suck at having ideas.

It's really no fair that you get to see all the stuff. I wanna see yours! *stomps feet* XP

ha ha well, no doubt you'll spot me when we post the previews... Strangely, one of my ideas was Jensen playing guitar - but I think it would spark totally different ideas than yours though. If I do that one, I really don't know which one to go for next.

Wow, there is absolutely nothing NOT to love here! I love the simplicity of each element. I love the poses you have for the boys. I love the palette you chose. I love your freaking FONT! Simply SPECTACULAR!

*hyperventilates a little bit* 😂 Ahhh, THANK YOU! I went back and forth on their poses so much, and I might be slightly obsessed with fonts, so it's especially cool to know those worked for you. :DDD!

I haven't had a chance to read the story yet, but I had to comment on the art right away. I think this is just beautiful. The composition of the banner, the colors, and the gorgeous depictions of the boys are all wonderful. I loved the attention to detail you put into the rest of the work as well.

Haha, the links were just me trying to make up for not having more art XP, but I also kinda love decorative stuff like that. Very happy you like it, thank you!

Beautiful, beautiful art! Having just come from devouring the fic, the art is just such a perfect match - what a wonderful collab this is!!! I love all your earthy tones and colours, and the posing of the cover piece, and bat and glove. Just perfect!!! Thank you so much for sharing this art set with us all. Take care :)

Oh you amazing, amazing girl!! It's my pleasure to tell you again (and again!! AND AGAIN!!!) how perfect this art is and how happy it makes me. If only you could have heard my shriek of delight when I opened up the email with the banner image in it. Or perhaps you did hear it all the way from here... IT WAS JUST THAT LOUD!! :D

The two of them lying together so comfortably, Jensen's hands so carefully cupping Jared's arms, Jared's hand so tender against Jensen's neck. It's just exactly how they are. And the greens and blues and tans are all perfectly evocative of the feel of the story: earthy and homey and magical. ♥__♥

And as if that weren't enough you made me all the cute little dividers and buttons and ICONS OMG YAY! I still haven't sat down to code everything in, but I'm saving that for a moment today when I really need a pick-me-up, because just looking at your art is the best mood enhancer in the world.

Thank you for choosing to partner with me again and for being so kind about all my flakiness. I feel so very grateful and lucky, because you are such a treasure. *massive Padalecki-sized hugs*

NO, YOU. <3

Ahhh, I'm so sorry I'm eons late replying to this but I hope you know your approval means the world! I already gushed all over the fic and its amazingness a thousand times, I know, but thank you for giving me something so inspiring to work from. I'm still having trouble expressing how much I love it. It makes me all floopy and … and HEART-WARMED. I am warm in my heart! Knowing the art lives up to that for you is just <33333 :DDDDD \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/!!!!!

Also: haha, you are talking to the queen of flakes over here. See the lateness of this comment. XD *hugs you to pieces*

Just finished reading the story and seeing your amazing artwork through it made it even more special.
Love the colouring and the skill it took to make it piece. The story banner is amazing by the way, really captures the story and draws you into it.
Thanks for sharing.
*hugs*

Oh, YOU. You have truly outdone yourself. This art set fits the story so perfectly. It just captures the baseball-y Americana feel of the fic, even the color palette suggest that All-American roadtrip across dust roads and cornfields. And then the main peace is so beautiful, I love the intimacy and comfort in their effortless touches, I can just imagine them spending days and days out there tangled together like that on their field after the story ends.

I'm the latest late to ever late, but oh my goodness, please don't think your comment isn't precious to me, because it isss! Ahhh, Americana is the best compliment because that's exactly it! The fic really overwhelmed me with that kind of nostalgia. May they be tangled together til the end of time.

Thank you, thank you, sunshine! I'm utterly overjoyed to know you like it! <333!

Golly gee, this is so precious, look at them! Your soft tones and colours just add more adorableness, what a beautiful drawing. The lettering is spot on too, and then you made chapterheaders and dividers in the same style; be still my graphic design loving heart. <3<3
A perfect artset. *sighs happily*

Look at me, I'm late again! XD Eee, thank you! I definitely get that matchy-match artset impulse from graphic design, so it's really cool to know you dig that! Also, I have a little bit of a font obsession so anytime someone comments on that I get all excited and hand-flappy. <3

*sighs happily right back at you*

Thank you, lovely! I'm so pleased you dig it! (And here's hoping you'll feel the same about what I'm working on next. *wink wink, nudge nudge*) <3
