[sticky post]Spring Fic Exchange-Come on Authors, It's Time to Tempt Those Artists
Animated Big Pretzel

banner by dizzojay
We've got a very talented group of artists in the mix here at spn_bigpretzel -- and it's time to tempt them into illustrating your fic! All you have to do is cut-and-paste the block below, and pimp your story to the crowd by posting a synopis and snippet! You don't need to have a completed story at this point, but the more you have to give an artist once you have been claimed, the more they will have to work with to make you flabulous art work for your story!



Artists ... If you see something you like, go ahead and claim it in the comments! Our goal is to match an artist with every story, so if a story has already been claimed, please choose another one. We'd like to see each story have at least one illustration -- a banner, a scene illustration, perhaps a set of icons or small illos that can be used to separate scenes or chapters. Once the mods have okayed your claim, go ahead and contact the author so the two of you can work together on a finished product.

You can participate as both an author and an artist, and you can do artwork for your own story.

If we have a small number of artists, we will have a second round of claims and if interested, you can claim more than one story.

THE GRASS IS GREENER

Rating: K+
Genre: Humour
Characters: Gadreel, mentions of Sam and Dean
Spoilers/Warnings: None, unless you're unfamiliar with events in season 9
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: don't own them

Sometimes the grass looks greener on the ether side even when you're an angel!

Gadreel was seriously questioning his decision.  It’s just that … Sam never stopped.  He was exhausting.  He was always indexing the Letters’ library, or researching a hunt or furthering his knowledge about something.
When he wasn’t doing that, it was Sudoku or Crosswords, or logic problems.  He even had a Rubiks Cube for Heaven’s sake.  The guy had a brain that wouldn’t quit.
He glanced enviously  across at Dean, snoozing on the couch, clutching an empty beer bottle, with a well-thumbed copy of Busty Asian Beauties rolled up beside him.
It looked like he picked the wrong Winchester to possess.

Metatron was not what Gadreel expected in a self-proclaimed ultimate ruler. Oh, he had grand plans, but most of their time seemed to be spent not doing much of anything.

He found the jigsaw puzzle in an old cabinet in Metatron’s “office.” It wasn’t as challenging for him as it might be for humans; he immediately knew where all the pieces went, it was just a matter of putting them in their proper places. There was satisfaction, though, in the end, when it was all one, beautiful whole.

“That’s the back.” Metatron observed the large, tan rectangle.

“I know.”

Calling all artists! We still have several authors/fics that need art for their stories. There are still 14 stories that can be claimed.

I have been a very bad mod because RL has gotten in the way, and I should've gotten to this sooner.

Please go here to check out the stories/snippets and see if your are interested in claiming any.

Thanks!

Jody glowered at the icy lake and shivered.

“Explain to me how I let you talk me into this again?”

Donna just grinned her usual cheery smile. “It’s all in good fun and for a good cause.” She playfully smacked Jody’s arm. “Besides, I promised you the best pancakes you ever tasted afterwards!”

“They’d better be some really amazing pancakes,” she mumbled under her breath.

Suddenly, Donna threw off her warm coat and ran into the water with a squeal of “Oh gosh!” officially starting her department's Polar Plunge for charity.

When Jody followed, her reaction was less G-rated.

I'm setting a hideously bad modly example and posting a day late, but Asylum 14 was a wonderfully brain frazzling experience over the weekend, and I wouldn't have been capable of writing my own name, never mind a drabble!!

So, possibly it's still late Sunday night somewhere in the world ...

HOME HELP

Rating: K+
Genre: Humour
Character: Castiel
Spoilers/Warnings: None
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: Don't own him

Castiel’s determined to make himself useful while he’s staying with the Winchesters. Doesn’t mean he has to enjoy it though!

xxxxx

Castiel was an Angel of the Lord; an ageless, celestial being of omnipotent power and luminescent magnificence.
So why, then, was he stuck here at the bunker doing the Winchesters’ laundry while they were out on the road, swanning around saving people and hunting things?
Methodically rooting through the laundry basket, he folded up a pile of freshly dried smalls, trying to match up odd socks and untangle a knot of threadbare boxers, sighing with relief as he reached the bottom of the pile.
But he had no idea how that pair of pink satin panties got in there.

CHARACTERS: Hannah
GENRE: Gen

WARNINGS: Um…Hannah’s got a big ol’ crush on Cas? Y'know, if that bothers you.
SPOILERS: Technically up to Season 9.
WORDS: 100

Hannah took inventory of the small kitchen of her group’s base. She didn’t need to eat, but she found human food produced pleasant sensations--especially chocolate. Castiel himself had mentioned he occasionally indulged his vessel’s love for hamburger.

Besides that, cooking provided her an outlet during rare moments of downtime, distracting her from worrying too much about Metatron.

She was also learning many things, like the fact that salad dressings should never be used on fruit salad, despite the similar names.

Her next project was meatloaf, and if it turned out all right, maybe she would bring some to Castiel...

TITLE: Clean Up Your Own Mess

WARNINGS: Implied prior naughtiness.
SPOILERS: Nope. Unless you don’t know who Balthazar is…
WORDS: 100

Balthazar frowned at the destroyed room around him. Empty liquor bottles and clothing littered every surface, and no sane creature was apt to go within ten feet of the bed without proper motivation.

Speaking of, he was seriously regretting offending his usual housekeeper by making inappropriate advances.

In theory, all he needed to do was mojo it all away, but he was technically still a fugitive from Heaven, and really shouldn’t draw attention.

“It can’t be that bad,” he reassured himself as he gingerly picked up a stray pair of panties. “Humans clean up after themselves all the time, right?”

Title Never Forget
Character|Pair: Sam
Summary: Sam finds a birthday surprise.
Disclaimer: I make no claims of ownership or profits.


Sam missed Dean more than he thought possible. After an afternoon of moping he agreed to have a few birthday drinks with his friends.

It wasn't long before the drinks caught up to him and he found himself drunkenly staggering to his room.

Sam smiled when he saw the box wrapped in the daily comic section from the paper sitting on his bed. He just knew who it was from.

He laughed when he saw the note scrawled across the top in magic marker, 'Happy Birthday! Get a better window lock'.

He knew Dean wouldn't forget him or his birthday.

Every year, Dean whispered the same words to his sleeping brother.

“Happy Birthday, Sammy; I’m sorry mom’s not here and dad’s busy. I love you.”

When Sam was three he woke up, grabbed Dean’s face with his chubby hands, and lisped “luff you too, De,”

When Sam was eight he heard Dean, but pretended not to; Dean was so uncool.

When Sam was thirteen he opened his eyes, startled Dean and grinned at his blush.

At eighteen, Sam grabbed Dean and pulled him down onto the bed.“I love you too, you big girl,” Sam teased; “now, gimme my present!”

WORDS: 100

When Dean asked Sam where he wanted to go for his birthday dinner, Sam said he didn’t care. He was used to weeding the healthiest items out of a greasy menu, so he was surprised when Dean pulled up in front of a chain famous for their extensive salad bar.

“Seriously?” he asked. Dean nodded with a little smirk.

Sam suspected something was up, he just wasn’t sure what.

“Are we celebrating anything tonight?” their chipper server asked, and Dean gleefully announced it was Sam’s birthday.

His custom salad was totally worth the off-key birthday song from the waitstaff.

Okay, this week has been insanely busy for me, but despite that, I couldn't let it pass without marking Sam's birthday in some small way.  And small is the word; it's so teeny-weeny, it doesn't even qualify as a drabble.  So here is my tribute to Sam's birthday -  brought to you through the medium of nursery rhymes!

Sam has decided for once to cut loose on his birthday.  This may not be such a good idea ...

xxxxx

Sammy had a little lamb

With thick mint sauce and fries

Three pints of beer, a row of shots and a plate of apple pies

He also had the chips and dips

And a latte – large – to go

And when Dean helped Sam home to bed, Sam’s face was white as snow.

Better late than never, I guess.

Penny for your thoughts
By Just Ruth

The lost scribe of Heaven saw the bright glint on the sidewalk and stooped for it. A small copper coin gleamed in his palm.

“See a penny, pick it up; all the day you’ll have good luck,” said the sweet brown child. Her little sundress was faded and worn.

“Maria!” called an older woman; she was pushing a stroller and looked weary.

Metatron thought of a preacher who once told a story about a widow and copper coins.

“Luck should be shared,” he smiled benevolently as he gave the child the coin. He turned it to gold and vanished as he heard the mother gasp in shock.

Later, as he sat the cell where the ungrateful angels had thrown him, he decided he should have kept the penny.

Metatron giggled to himself and Cas rolled his eyes in exasperation. He had never wanted to kill anyone as much as he wanted to kill this smug, odious, self-satisfied little creep.

“Stop it,” Cas growled menacingly.

“I can’t! I just remembered something about the dynamic duo,” Metatron chuckled.

Cas tried to resist the urge to ask, but he couldn’t. “What?”

“Everything they do ends up badly; they never seem to catch a break.” The little creep expounded. “And I know why. People think it’s just a saying, but breaking a mirror brings bad luck. Hunting Bloody Mary, they broke forty-seven!”
