FIC

Title: Key, Soul and Prisoner

Fandom/Genre: Supernatural
Pairing(s)/Characters: Gen with Sam, Dean and Gadreel
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5,100
Warnings: Some language
Summary: Slipping through a portal into another world, using a drug some random guy handed him in the back of a dance club, with only a bone knife between him and death, wasn’t the craziest thing Sam had done lately. Hell, it hardly even cracked the top ten…

ART

Title: Temple of Twain
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair / MistressKat
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural,
Pairing(s)/Characters: Sam and Dean
Rating: G
Warnings: none for the art, unless you cound Sammy angst and my dubious acrylics skills
Description (one used for the claiming): Sam sits on the foreground, looking like he has reached the end of his rope. Behind him are mysterious ruins of an old temple, and in the distant doorway we can see Dean. There are also two circular symbols, white one surrounding Sam and dark one surrounding Dean, indicating balance and symmetry.

Artist notes: This was my first time taking part in [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. My reasons were twofold: 1) work is so busy that I have little energy for writing, but art is a different kind of activity and actually quite relaxing, 2) I haven't done anything in SPN fandom for a while. I was delighted to have both of my art pieces claimed pretty quickly AND so very delighted with what my authors came up with. It's been a real pleasure working with [livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda who has produced an awesome story with magic and brotherly love and most satisfying solution to the Gadreel storyline as well. And a very inspirational monster that made me dig out my water colours! For the digital art, please see here for texture and photo attributions.



The banner in full size



This is the original art. I went for some mysterious ruins and angsting Sam, hoping it would be sufficiently tempting and sufficiently broad for potential authors.



[livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda created an awesome monster. Behold the goblin Satan :D "He became a sort of tree-creature, covered in thorns, over ten feet tall. [...] bark-skinned monster [with] fingers like wooden daggers"

This is a great post, and it's lovely to hear more of your thoughts and process on the RBB, too! It was so great to work with you.

I don't think I ever mentioned how much I think you captured The Wizard's sarcastic expression, even... it looks like he's filling Dean's ear here, just as he does in the fic. And I fell in love with your prompt-image all over again. :-D Beautiful, angsty Sam. <3 <3

I'm a wordy person so even in my art posts I end up rambling about stuff :) And hah yay for wizard's slightly smug expression working with the story! I'd like to say it was on purpose but... It's been a while since I've done anything with my water colours so it was pretty fun and therapeutic.

Thanks again for creating such an awesome case fic story for it, much more satisfying ending to the Gadreel storyline than the show gave us!

Oh, I've posted art on AO3 now so I think you can link to that my selecting the 'inspired by' option: http://archiveofourown.org/works/9777008

Oooo, angsty Sam and mysteries!! And the goblin Satan is suitably creepy.

As a sidenote, after reading the description "--fingers like wooden daggers", replying to your post via click a link that says "take my hand" made me pause for a moment. I'm hoping there will be no goblin Satans to drag me somewhere for commenting. *checks under the table* ;D

Angsty Sam and mysterious ruins seemed like a winning combination :D

The description of goblin Satan is from the fic. And ahahahaha yeah, I can see how that might make you check under the table and behind the sofa... But don't worry, the Winchesters pretty much took care of goblin Satan so you should be safe :D

Really great artwork! I love the tree creature and pensive Sam:) The blend of ruins and symbolism works very well.

Thank you so much. The tree monster was fun to draw and paint. And yay for my random combination of symbolism and ruins working! Be sure to read the story :)

Thanks hun. I'm glad I did the watercolour too. I need to buy more paper though. It was good to paint for a change. I'm sure you'll like the story!

Well yes, for the first bit but then the art you created after...See RBB confuses my brain when people add extras!!

Welcome to the ReverseBang! I love your mixed media artwork, that promptpiece is such a cool composition and I like how you translated it to a neutral banner. The somewhat broken letters fit very nicely with how you brushed the colours.

Heehee, the tree-creature, that's an awesome creation \o/

Thank you very much! It's certainly been a very positive experience for my first time :)

And thank you for your lovely, detailed comments! Really great to hear you liked the textures, fonts etc and of course my attempt at water colours :) Making the tree creature was such fun, the fic was very inspirational in that regard!

Ooh, these are great! Love the mysterious atmosphere of the ruins and the colours of the sky/background. Goblin Satan looks like a very cool monster, and I'm looking forward to reading the fic! ♥

Apologies for the later reply! Thank you very much for your lovely comments here. I'm glad the colours work and Goblin Satan tickled your interest. Hope you've managed to read the fic!
