Dean

Happy Birthday Jensen

We are here to celebrate the sunny side of Supernatural, and how much sunnier does it get than celebrating the birthday of one of it's two gorgeous stars?

Would we all adore Dean so much if it wasn't for Jensen bringing him to life so magically?

So, to show my appreciation, here's a little collage I threw together to mark Jensen's special day - I hope the sun shines for you Jensen :)

Rec: Here Comes the Sun Video

While "researching" another project, I came across this video. It is billed as "I'm on a road trip with my brother", and you can't have a road trip without a car, and this video shows that-about 95% of has great scenes of Baby!

ETA: Apparently, this one was made by one of our own, el1ie and I didn't even know it until she said something! So way to go el1ie!

Welcome to the Spring 2012 Fic Exchange!

It's a brand-new month, and what better way to get it going than with our very first fic exchange!

So that we can keep the time frame relatively short, let's aim for shorter fic this time -- a minimum of 1,000 words, maximum of 5,000 words (unless your muse really goes wild and you're sure you can finish within the allotted time).  The finish line/posting date will be Sam's birthday, May 2.

We'd like everyone to end up working with a prompt they really like, so rather than the mods matching everyone up, we're going to let the participants pop back in and claim a fellow writer as their "exchange buddy."  Then, midway through the process, we'll ask each writer to post a short blurb about their story so that the artists who'd like to participate can stake a claim.  (Since these will be short fics, we'll ask the artist to contribute a small banner or a single illo, perhaps an icon -- unless, again, their muses go wild!)  From that point, writer and artist can work together to produce a finished little gem to share with the comm.

Added to clarify:  When you come back to claim a "buddy," you'll be claiming the person, along with all of their prompts.  That person -- along with all of their prompts -- then gets crossed off the "available" list.
