Posting early so my author can get the link. I will add the fic details and links as soon and they are available!



Title: Born of Mortal Flesh
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural
Pairing(s)/Characters: Benny/Dean
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 27,745
Warnings: None
Summary: Canon-divergent AU, (very) loosely inspired by the Ballad of Tam Lin. While on a hunt with John, Dean discovers a mysterious mirror in a witch's attic, and finds himself transported to the world of Faerie. On the other side, he meets somebody who's been stuck there much longer than him. Somebody who makes him reconsider everything he's been taught about trusting monsters, and a few things about himself that he’s been denying. But Benny's a favourite pet of the King of Fairyland, and their budding relationship seems doomed. Years later, Dean finds himself back on the other side of the mirror—and a second chance to save Benny may just be a chance to save the world.

Title: The Raven Path
Artist: kat_lair / MistressKat
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural
Pairing(s)/Characters: Benny and Dean
Rating: PG
Warnings: none for the art, unless you count bloody Dean with a weapon
Description (one used for the claiming): On the foreground are Benny and Dean. Benny looks grim and determined, and there's a crow sitting on his shoulder. Dean is faded out and battled bloodied, holding a self-made weapon. Behind them a portal of fire reveals a forest path. The background is grey and dirtied, offering a hint of a run-down building with its empty windows.

Artist notes: This was my first time taking part in 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. Especially as they both went for the fairy theme...  [livejournal.com profile] anactoria has weaved a wonderful story of fairy tale and canon, I'm so excited that my little art inspired it! For the digital art, please see here for texture and photo attributions.

This is the original piece. I went with Dean and Benny because [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 really likes the pairing and has been whining at me to write something for a while and I have failed to do that. At least this way, I thought, she'd be within a chance of getting that story somehow... And boy howdy! Ready to fight Dean in all his bloody purgatory glory, Benny glowering, and obligatory mysterious raven. And a portal... Yeah, I rammed a lot of stuff in there :D

I really wanted to do some water colours for this fic as well but work got silly busy so I ran out of time :( But here are some quick icons!

Yay! I could gaze at these all day long. There's something really magical about the lighting effects you've used in them, so maybe it's not surprising that you inspired two fairy stories. ;) Thank you again for creating them -- and for being a delight to work with. ♥

Thank you so much! I'm so pleased the lighting and rest of it was inspirational. And thank you for your lovely story. I only had time to skim the finished version but I can see you added things here and there (ugh... I really want to draw swimming scene now!) so I'm going to read it all properly as soon as I get all this marking finished (so, this weekend hopefully!). Can't wait!

p.s. posted art on AO3 now: http://archiveofourown.org/works/10037438

Almost makes me wish I was in the fandom!

Oh you should read the fic though! It's a wonderful faerie tale and I don't think the canon references would through you too much. Human hunter and a vampire meet in the Faerie Kingdom!

Oooh thank you! Well raven is almost obligatory accessory for mystical portals :D The story is so wonderful, I'm beyond thrilled to get 27k of utter awesomeness to go with the art!

Oh this is great! Love Dean and Benny, love the portal and especially the texturing behind it, and I love the raven. It IS funny, as anactoria pointed out, that both of your authors wrote faerie stories! :-D

Clearly my art has some faerie vibe to it :D Thank you for your comments, especially noting all the little details. You should definitely read the story too, it's just lovely.

Very shiny!! Purgatory!Dean always looks so good, and the mysterious raven is damn cool. :D

Thank you! Purgatory!Dean was a sure bet for a gritty, bloody, desperate version of him :D And obviously a mysterious raven was needed ;)

Ooh, good promptpiece, many intriguing elements. I love how bright and clean the characters and the portal pop out of the background, great eyeline too; I keep going back and forth between Dean and Benny's look.

Thank you so much! Delight to hear you commenting on all the details. I rammed a lot of stuff into this 0ne, hoping something would catch and bless my writer for managing to incorporated it all.

Very pretty! :) I never got far enough to know who Benny is, but he seems popular in fic?

I love the background in the title banner. It's gorgeous.
