Story title: Terraform

Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jensen works for the Terraformation Department, monitoring a planet almost ready for settlement. Jared is a bartender new to the station, who decides to make Jensen his own personal project. Will he succeed, or is Jared hiding a more sinister purpose? And with Jensen's own secrets to hide, will it ultimately matter?
Art Notes: I have a thing for sci-fi stories. Terraform satisfied my sci-fi love in so many ways. I love the universe [livejournal.com profile] zortified created, and her characterization for Jared and Jensen is wonderfully unique and layered. I loved the complexity of this story, and how smoothly put together it is. And I also just love, how very much of a love story it is too. I highly recommend checking it out!

As for the art I had a great time doing this one. It was probably the most challenging, being set so far in the future, so I spent a lot of time searching for the right clothes, and the right background. In the end, I am just super pleased with how the art turned out. I was captivated by the haunting loneliness of that first scene with Jensen, and I just wanted to capture all of those feelings as best I could.

Story title: In Harm's Way
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] gatorgrrrl
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Dr. Jared Padalecki just wants to live a quiet life. There's only one problem: He's caught the attention of CIA Officer Jensen Ackles (a.k.a. Tom Delaney), who has discovered that Jared is the perfect man for the job. What is the job? Infiltrating the inner circle of Alain Laurent, terrorist banker extraordinaire, who's been in Jensen's sights for months, but always just out of reach. But as Jensen draws Jared into his web of deception, they both discover that in the game of espionage, all is not what it seems and that sometimes, being someone else can help you discover who you really are.

Art Notes: I cannot say enough good things about how spectacular this story is. It's long, incredibly well developed, has fantastic scene setting and real, dimensional side characters, and best of all it's SPIES. This universe just drew me in immediately, and I knew i have to make something really big for the art. This is such a big story, and I love it to death. I can only hope that my art does it some justice.

Story title: Caught Inside
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] topaz119
Pairing: Steve/Jensen/Chris, Jared/Jeff (some interim Jensen/Jeff and Steve/Chris)
Summary: Steve's been gone for a year now, but every time they talk, he tells Jensen he'd love it on Maui, that there's always room for him. Jensen takes him up on the offer, finally, but there's a strange guy in the house and playing the odd-man-out isn't exactly what Jensen had in mind. There's not much left for him in LA, though, so he lets Steve talk him into staying for a while and finds himself stuck between what he wants and what he has.

Art Notes: This story is SO GOOD you guys. Surfer AU! In Maui no less! With Jeff and Sandy and Daneel and Jared and everyone being so awesome well drawn that there is no way my art could ever do it justice. I gave it a shot though, so here goes. With all of the pictures, click to embiggen!
