fic: as this sunset turns to morning (notes & art)  
the author’s notes.

There are a whole lot of things I want to say about this fic, but I’ll restrain myself. This was, without a doubt, the most challenging thing I have ever written. I spent week after week trying to put myself in Jensen’s headspace and that just wasn’t a pleasant place to be for the most part.

I learned a lot while writing this story. I really took a step back and looked at my writing style, and this story gave me room to grow. There were times when I cried over this story and times I wanted to give up and times I was so damn proud of myself I could barely stand it. This story is a long time coming, and I really hope you enjoy it.

There are lots of people that helped to whip this story into shape, and they know who they are. I am more grateful than words can express. ♥

the art; credit where credit is due.

When it comes to art, I am incredibly spoiled. starweather has claimed the position as my designated artist, and trust me, I couldn’t be happier. I just have to put a few teasers here so I have them on my journal, but please go check out her post to see all the amazing art she created for my little world and tell her how wonderful she is. ♥

I'm entirely astounded by how marvelous and epic and beautiful this fic was. I stumbled across it completely by accident, and I couldn't be any happier that I did. The writing and the construction of the story was marvelous, and kept me hooked way past my bedtime. :D Thank you for sharing something so excellent with the rest of us!

I've spent the past week reading this in little bits, partly because I wanted to savor it, and partly because I've just been too busy to sit down and read the whole thing in one go. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and I love the voices you gave to Jensen and Jared. It made me laugh, made me ache, made me go "awww" and made me want to cheet. Thank you for this.

LOVE THIS (AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR OTHER FICS) SO FREAKING MUCH! I don't know how many times I've read all of these, but I never get tired of 'em and absolutely SQUEE whenever you post a new fic.

You are, without a doubt, one of my top 5 fave authors. :D

Thank you.

This was an amazing story. All around, I rarely get teary eyed while reading and the moment with Sherri and Jensen making cupcakes. And the part when Jensen leaves his house. Amazing. I loved this fic so much.

Okay first off I want to say I never read a fan ficition twice. *shrugs* its never because I don't like it its just how I am... its like I've been in that space and I'm done.
Well I can officially say that because of your amazingly poignant, heart meltingly touching story I have just finished my second go through.
I just really don't how to put into words how deeply this story moves me but I loose myself in it finding myself unable to stop reading until finished.
Jensen's pain makes me ache but Jared's easy joy makes everything better.
So in short, this is amazing, undeniably amazing and damn near perfect. Hell screw that it is perfect.

Starweather's art post has been deleted. Is it posted anywhere else?

I was going to check out starweather's account for the art, and it's been purged and deleted. Do you happen to have the art so we can see it? The teaser above just isn't enough, you know? Oops...I see I mentioned it above. You never answered, so I guess asking again is moot. :-(

I've read this fic before, but it's a fandom classic, and I come back to it over and over. Just wanted you to know how much I love it.
