Fic: on LJ | on AO3
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zubeneschamali
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: Thrust into leadership when his commanding officer is killed in battle, Jensen must offer the Akkadians' surrender to Corona, the rival planet his family used to rule. To make matters worse, his new Commander in Chief orders him to work with her son, someone he knew in a much simpler time. But the mission is critical: protecting the people of Akkad and Corona alike from an imminent sunstorm that threatens to finish what the war started.

Jared was raised to resent the Akkadians, having experienced their unfair rule for all of his life. It's been a long, hard struggle, but at last the Coronans are victorious. But as Jared learns more about what actually happened during the war, seeing with his own eyes what was done, he starts to question their victory. As he and Commander Ackles prepare for the deadly solar flares, Jared learns that the conflict he was proud to win was more complicated than he thought—and that for some people, the war isn't over yet.

My ramblings: Look, just go read this fic. Do you see where it's set? Do you see who it's by? Yeah, you don't need me to tell you to read this but I am anyway, because there's nothing even a little bit close to enough art here. *hangs head in shame* *shakes computer screen* SO MUCH WONDERFUL IMAGERY AND ... this is all I have to offer.

FOR NOW.

Thanks a million zillion, Z, for your patience and for indulging me. /o\ And, of course, there can never be enough thanks given to [livejournal.com profile] wendy for running this challenge year after year.

Fic: Music to Fuck To
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thep0rnfairy
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: Nothing in life is permanent, especially love. Jensen Ackles knows this all too well, and makes it a point to never get too attached. When he finds himself back in Chicago after a long deployment, things heat up between him and and an old flame- and nothing scares him as much as his feelings for Jared Padalecki.

Twice before he’d fucked up, walked away from the only man he’d ever wanted without an explanation. So when fate gives him an unexpected third chance, Jensen vows to do it right this time around.

When the lines between what they were and what Jensen hoped they could be become dangerously blurred, everything falls apart and Jensen is left exactly where he always feared he’d end up: Broken, left behind to pick up the pieces and figure out a future without Jared.

Spanning 10 years, two continents, three cities and several musical genres, Music To Fuck To is a cento of song lyrics, memories and hope.

My ramblings: *runs around in circles* YAAAAAY, IT'S HERE! The fic is here! It's spectacularrr! There was so much in it that I reeeally wanted to art, but unfortunately life threw probably every obstacle ever at me this BB season (THE NERVE) and I didn't get nearly enough done. My author was so understanding and fabulous about all of it, though, that I have trouble believing she's a real person that exists and not some magnificent thing I imagined. Thank you, J, for being so patient and enthusiastic and all-around fun. I hope we have a chance to work together again, and that next time I won't be the worst flake in the world. <333! Also, so many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wendy for running this crazy wonderful challenge, giving us the extensions we needed, and not firing me like I probably deserved. XP

Fic: Multitudinous Echoes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] walking_tornado
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: eventual implied Jared/Jensen (mentions of Jared/Adrianne, Jared/other, Jensen/other, Kim Rhodes/Jim Beaver)
Summary: Space AU. Cargo ship captain Jensen Ackles' two week crap job transporting colonists off-planet should have opened the doors for lucrative government contracts. Farmer Jared Padalecki should have married and started a family. Jared and Jensen's destinies intersect when Jensen rips apart Jared's life, separating him from his fiancée and removing Jared's people from their land. To win Jared over, Jensen recklessly promises to find Jared's lost fiancée. Jensen, Kim, and Felicia struggle to keep the colonists alive, and Jensen tries to ignore his growing interest in Jared as they search for Adrianne.

My ramblings: Ahhh, I think I took my BB neurosis to new heights this year. RL ate up my time, and I didn't get to do all the art I had planned for WT's amazing story (like, you know, actual scenes) which is TRAGIC. Because not only is the story awesome, WT herself is so awesome that I want to give her presents all year round. SHE WROTE J2 SHOWERING IN ZERO G FOR ME AND I FAAAILED SO HARD. THERE IS NO PUNISHMENT PUNISHING ENOUGH.

Long story a little less long: She put so much work into this thing and I'm over here being all unworthy and terrible. Don't let my terrible-ness fool you, tho, the fic is FANTASTIC and deserving of SO MUCH MORE. Read it, read it, read it, go now!

Story: Life, Underwater
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wastetheyears
My ramblings: J2 swimmers! It's the BEST thing. This fic had my emotions all over the place, and that was only the rough draft. The final product should be nothing short of epic, so everyone definitely make sure to check it out.

I feel like I always say this, but in this case, it's extra, extra true: I wish I could've done sooo much more for this amazing, wonderful story of amazingness. Unfortunately, RL just wasn't having any of it. Extra special thanks to wastetheyears for being so understanding and patient when things got tough. I hope I get to work with you again, and maybe make it up to you. <3

Story: Into the Light of the Dark Black Night
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dugindeep
My ramblings: Okay, so this fic, with all it's imagery that caters to everything I love ever? SPECTACULAR. Obviously! There was sooooo much I wanted to do, but unfortunately, I'm slow, and I didn't get to finish all 12 billion things that inspired me (seriously, there is a lot of visual amazingness packed into this fic). I didn't even come close. But I had a blast working with dugindeep, who was enthusiastic and fun to chat with and endlessly patient with me, and on this story, which is spectacular. I said that already. But it is. It's spectacularrr. So go read it!
