Wow, I can't believe it's finally done! This challenge has been a lot of fun. Much love and thanks is owed to the mods over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang  for putting it together.

And the best thing to come out of this portion is, of course, the BRILLIANT AMAZING AWESOMETASTIC STORY OF AWESOMENESS: The Catch. If you don't read this, your life will be incomplete, I promise you.

But that's not really even the best thing. The BEST best thing was getting to work with/know [livejournal.com profile] moragmacpherson, who went above and beyond to not only to create a fic I loved, but to help me out with other aspects of the challenge she had no reason to concern herself with. She is a wonderfully talented and generous person upon whom I heap piles and piles of adoration for putting up with my ADD. I couldn't make enough art for her, seriously. I only wish I'd been able to contribute more.

Did I mention that I FREAKIN' ♥ THIS FIC?

*ahem* So, yeah. Art.

And where would I be without other people doing half the work for me? Absolutely nowhere, I tell you. Resources and credit can be found here.

Chica - anything I did was just trying to do your stuff justice. The prompt told a helluva story. And you're seriously making me blush.

I'm really going to bed now, but just wanted to remind you: collaboration = this project. Would never have happened without you and neither JJ nor I can stop gushing about your art - and she actually knows stuff about art, so you should trust her.

You did it so much justice and then some, and I'm NOT GONNA STOP SAYING THAT! S'what you get for having brilliant ideas and writing them down where I can see.

*returns the blush* Thank you, and tell JJ the same for me!

*waves* This is JJ in her LJ incarnation. Just dropping by to say how much I am in awe and love of your incredible art (and jealous--I want Photoshop! I can't even get rid of a silly dot in iPhoto--see icon). And the Flaming Klein Bottle of Despair makes me giggle every time I see it. I've had a ball working with [livejournal.com profile] moragmacpherson on this, and you're the one who started that ball rolling.

I have not the words to thank you enough. Together, art and fic, this is a work of great beauty, and one I will treasure for a long time to come. (Actually, let's just go with forever--it's true.)

Would you like squee over the art details here or by email? I warn you that it'll be rather long.

Oh, my goodness! You're just trying to make my face burst right into flames! Thank you for the lovely compliments! And also for helping MM with the story. You guys had some brilliant insights into things and it was an honor just being on the edges of that.

FYI: I don't have Photoshop (though I do call it that often just because people recognize the name more). I have the GIMP, which is completely free and has most of the same tools. No need for jealousy; go download it! ;D

I remember ogling your prompt during claims! I love, love, love the colours and the composition and the texture of the original piece.

Everything here is kind of startlingly beautiful and atmospheric.

*blushes* Thank you so much! That's very kind of you to say.

That is one burning hot prompt: great use of colour. It's very daring to bring the contrast down to just orange and almost black, but it works perfectly.

I can't quite figure out what I see in the divider, *squints* will the story make sense of that? (Or are my old eyes simply failing me?;)

I love the style of the additional banners and cover; those collages are very well done and I like the texture.

You made a great set of artwork, the author is surely thrilled she picked you:)

The divider is actually supposed to be a Klein bottle. I don't think the story references it specifically; it's more of a hell-metaphor.

Thank you! That's awesome of you to say!

Ah, thanks for explaining that, I would have never known. I appreciate the link, I think I have accidentily learned something: fascinating science:)

You're very welcome. I didn't know what is was at first either, so we both learned things. :D

I couldn't have been luckier in my artist draw than I was. And then she kept making *more*.
