Acknowledgements: I was brave (and lucky) this year and managed to claim the inestimable [ profile] quickreaver for my artist, which was all kinds of fantastic. She is the master of haunting, beautiful images, and I had more ideas than I knew what to do with when it came to the piece that she submitted for claims this year. She was also very patient with me and my ludicrously long outline, even when I managed to make us miss our original posting day, and has created several gorgeous pieces to complement the story. Make sure you drop by her Art Post and leave her some love!

Many thanks to [ profile] dugindeep for helping me coordinate my many weird ideas into a single (hopefully) cohesive story, and for volunteering as a beta when I was losing my mind trying to balance RL, migraines and impending deadlines. I can always count on you, hon! You're awesome. :) Any remaining errors are my own.

Thanks to our lovely mods who keep us running smoothly, year after year.

And finally, thank you to everyone who gives this story a try. I sincerely hope you enjoy it!
Title: The Truth Spinner: A Beginner's Guide to Goth Wizardry
Author: [ profile] cleflink
Artist: [ profile] stormbrite
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Warning: PG
Word count: 4710
A/N: Written for the inaugural round of [ profile] j2_reversebang. A million kudos to the lovely [ profile] stormbrite for her gorgeous art and her incredible patience with me as RL conspired to make me late for pretty much everything about this challenge. I dearly wish that I'd had more time to work on this story, because it was such a fun premise to work with. Go to her Art Post and leave some much-deserved love! Also available on AO3.

Summary: Even for New York, a wizard duel between a giant goth and a graffiti-slinging hobo is beyond weird. Maybe if Jensen's lucky, he's hallucinating the entire thing.

"This is insane," he said, mostly because it seemed like someone should. )
Fic title: Kaleidoscope
Author name: [ profile] cleflink
Artist name: [ profile] pennydrdful
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 31,140
Warnings: Explicit sex, children being raised in a safe but loveless environment
A/N: Written for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang's 2016 round. Sequel to Learn to Glow for Other's Good and Hearts Have Colours which I highly recommend reading first.

Summary: This isn't a story about why Jensen, one of the most powerful empaths in the world, fell in love with a Normal person like Jared. Instead, it's a story about his life before Jared arrived, and after.

So perhaps it really is a story about why he fell in love, after all.

'Learn to Glow' Verse Master List

Acknowledgements: Thank you first and foremost to [ profile] pennydrdful for picking my prompt and making some absolutely beautiful art to go with it. She did an absolutely masterful job of conveying some very nebulous ideas in gorgeous detail, and was super cool about me being the pickiest person ever to pick. :P Her art really strikes into the heart of what this story is all about, and I couldn't be happier. Make sure you check out her Art Post and leave some much-deserved love! Note that one of the images in the Art Post could be considered slightly spoilery.

This story has been in the works for literal years, so many thanks to anyone who commented on the other stories in the series or expressed an interest in a continuation. I hope that the ultimate result is somewhat worth the wait!

Thanks to the Hand Holding ladies for joining in the misery of draft deadlines and encouraging me through their own determination to get this stuff finished on time, dammit. Thanks also to Mum for brainstorming traumatic childhood memories with me and Laura for a speedy last-minute beta. Any inability to use the English language that still remains is totally my bad. Kudos always to [ profile] dugindeep for being awesome.

And finally, hooray for [ profile] wendy for always doing such an amazing job hosting this challenge!
Title: I Go to the Sea
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 4700
Warnings: Dark-ish; dub-con kissing; body horror; internalized, period-typical homophobia
A/N: This story was written last September for [ profile] petite_madame, who had a shitty 2015. As she is a lovely and talented lady who deserves all the good things in the world, a bunch of us got together to create stuff to brighten her day and let her know how much we appreciate her. Almost at the same time as I originally posted this story, I also got a more-than-full time job and totally forgot that I never reposted. So here it is, slightly revamped from the original. Also available on AO3.

PM has a fondness for dark, slightly gory stuff, which you probably all know isn't exactly my forte. :P I did my best though, and this is what I came up with.

Inspired by two of PM's stunning pieces of artwork: this one, and also a little bit this one.

Summary: All Jensen had ever wanted was a chance to sail the circle seas. And if marrying Danneel and letting her protect his heartstone every time he left port was the only way to do that, then so be it.

You must never go to sea unless you have someone special on land to protect your heartstone for you )
Title: Out of Time
Author: [ profile] cleflink
Artist: [ profile] 2blueshoes
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Length: 9500
Warnings: historical violence
A/N: Written for the 2015 round of [ profile] spn_reversebang. Most of the information about fencing comes from my brief foray as a member of the fencing team at my university, so I apologize if any of it is not as precise as it could be.
A million thanks to [ profile] 2blueshoes for being amazingly talented and wonderfully tolerant of me when RL decided to go balls up on me. Thank you for working with me, hon! :) I can only hope that this story does a little bit of justice to her beautiful art, which you should all go look at and admire at her Art Post forthwith. Thanks also and always to our lovely mods who always do a masterful job. You make this challenge so much fun to participate in!

Summary: It wasn't like Jensen planned to find a door to the past on his college campus; things like that just sort of happen at college.

He hadn't got more than a few paces when a guy dressed in leggings, a long, brass-buttoned coat, and carrying a sword rounded the corner towards him. )
Title: Silberwald
Fandom: CWRPS AU
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 7730
Warnings: Minor character death, a little bit of gore
A/N: Written for [ profile] locifan who asked for a fairy tale with a Halloween twist for [ profile] spn_j2_xmas. I'm, uh, not really sure how well that worked out, but here it is anyway. This story is based on The Twelve Dancing Princesses, with a little bit of Tam Lin thrown in for good measure. Thanks for waiting so patiently, [ profile] locifan! I hope you enjoy!
Also available on AO3.

Summary: A modern fairy tale in which Jensen isn't a princess, but he still likes dancing, Jared is definitely not a knight in shining armour, and the homeless guy across the street is surprisingly knowledgeable about sinister goings-on.

Personally, Jared thought that this Jensen was kind of old to be having his parents keeping tabs on how often he went clubbing, but it wasn't his job to question his clients' neuroses )

Fic title: Judgment in Reverse
Author name: [ profile] cleflink
Artist name: [ profile] ldyghst
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: R
Word count: 30,900
Warnings: Coup-related violence, minor character deaths
A/N: Written for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang's 2015 round. The title is a reference to the Judgment Tarot Card.

Summary: In a world governed by order and logic, Jensen is a square peg in a round hole: the only person whose government-mandated prophecies are never right. When he receives a prophecy that he can't fake, however; he finds himself caught up in something that's much bigger than he realized. Something that threatens to rewrite everything he thinks he knows about the world. Something that threatens to topple the very foundations of his society.

Something that just might be magic.

Master Art Post

Acknowledgements: Thank you first and foremost to [ profile] ldyghst, who chose my crazy little story for this challenge and made some absolutely lovely art for it. Despite the terrible first draft she read, [ profile] ldyghst was able to create a very distinct and stylish feel for her art that complements this story more than I ever could have hoped for. She was also hella patient with me when things weren't finished on time, which I very much appreciate. Please head over to her Art Post and let her know how fabulous her art is!

[ profile] dugindeep always deserves love, booze and chocolates from me when it comes to her awesomeness at brainstorming and sprinting. This year, I have to give her especial thanks for stepping in as a much-needed zero-hour beta. Don't know what I'd do without you, hon! (Fail miserably, most likely). Any inability to use the English language that still remains is totally my bad.

And finally, hooray for [ profile] wendy for hosting this challenge year after year! You're awesome!

I hope you all enjoy this story!
