Big Bang Art Post #2 - A Haven In A Heartless World [Sam/Dean]

[j2 - hug]
For my second big bang I chose xela_fic's spectacular story, 'A Haven In A Heartless World'. It was the first summary to really grab my attention and after reading it fully I'm even more in love with it, and after reading you will definitely understand why!

Title: A Haven In A Heartless World
Summary: [Alternate season 1] A lot can happen in four years. People grow and change and life goes on. Sam sees Dean for the first time in four years at his graduation from Stanford. This sets of a chain of events that make them acknowledge past mistakes, present desires, and future plans. They both have secrets—some big, some small; some tiny and fragile and the biggest secret of them all—not to mention a wealth of history between them. But family is the only haven in a heartless world, and no one knows this better than the Winchesters.

A HUGE thank you, along with a gigantic platter of cookies, goes to xela_fic for putting up with me and my procrastinating ways. You have been truly wonderful throughout this whole thing and I couldn't have asked for a more understanding, patient author. You deserve a billionty gold stars. ♥

Also LOTS of love and thank yous to my personal cheerleaders/handholders/soundboards, xtinethepirate & quarterwhore! ♥

And of course, a big thank you to the wonderful mods who put so much work into running spn_j2_bigbang each and every year! ♥

FIRST! You are totally fantastic and I cannot wait to see the final cut of the vid! The rough cut makes me grin so hard, I think I may crack a tooth grinning at the final!

aaaaw hush, we had this conversation :-P You did incredible art! The way you really read into the chapters and dissected them made everything so much better! It accentuates the chapters so well, I couldn't have asked for someone who got the story more than you!

The final vid is AMAZING. Ridiculously perfect. You should jump over to the announcement post--people have been praising that trailer, and some of them are reading the story just because of it! Take your accolades, woman! You totes deserve them!! :D http://community.livejournal.com/spn_j2_bigbang/96721.html

I just read the story this morning and then watched the trailer and wow, it brings back the heartwrenching feel of the fic so well. The art is lovely, too, especially the one with the baby. That scruffy look is so Dean.
16th-Jul-2009 05:04 am (UTC)
Yay! That is certainly what I was aiming for when creating the trailer, so mission accomplished ^-^ And oh, yeah, Scruffy!Dean with a baby is too adorable for words. Pretty much just Dean with any child is though really.

What a lovely series of chapter banners, just beautiful. But the art that I find absolutely haunting is your title banner. The Impala, the open road and the soft sepia tones along with that lovely choice of font. Just wonderful work. Thanks for sharing!
