A/n: THE FIFTH AND FINAL ART FOR [community profile] wipbigbang !! WOOO!! I loved the concept of this one immediately, and was very curious how it could possibly work with Steve as the Beast. From the snippets I saw, Aenaria does a really excellent job of giving the story a twist and making it wonderfully original - I can't wait to read the full thing. :D

I'll admit I was a bit daunted at first, trying to figure out how to do art for the lovely snippets I got, but I had to try and create something that fit the intrigue and magic of the story. The imagery of the quiet scene where Sam (the falcon!) talks to the beast about magic breaking down stuck with me so I did my best to somehow art it. :)

Fic Title: illa vincit, que si vincit
Fic Summary: Once upon a time, there was a witch in a castle who stole a frozen Captain for her collection.

Once upon a time, an intern got lost in the woods and offered to trade herself to the castle for her friend’s life and freedom.

Once upon a time in the castle, the intern and the Captain meet and, as the magic begins to decay and the relationship grows, they learn more about the true nature of the castle, what it means to be human, and what really makes a home.

An MCU take on Beauty and the Beast, inspired by Angela Carter, the B&B Broadway musical, and so many other tales swirled together.

who could ever learn to love a beast )
A/n: We're onto art set number 4 of 5 for [community profile] wipbigbang! :D This is actually the first fic I grabbed to art - like, gasoed and GRABBED, my friends. The second I saw it was a SPN/Teen Wolf crossover, I got really excited, and the summary sucked me in instantly. Stiles and Jody are related? YES. Stiles gets sent away from supernatural happenings only to definitely get mixed up in more supernatural happenings? DOUBLE YES. And guys, if the snippets and first couple chapters I read are anything to go by, this fic is fantastic - the voices are so on point, and [personal profile] twisted_slinky does a brilliant job of bringing two shows well-suited for each other, in a great, great way. I can't wait to read the rest - you need to go read it too, right now.

Fic Title: Nothing Ever Happens in Sioux Falls
Fic Summary: After realizing the extent of his son's involvement with the murders and strange occurrences that have plagued Beacon Hills over the past year, Sheriff Stilinski decides his son should spend the summer with his aunt in South Dakota, one Sheriff Jody Mills. Which means Stiles has to leave his friends and the supernatural behind for what promises to be a completely vanilla, not to mention emotionally tense, trip to nothing-happens-here Sioux Falls. When Stiles gets wind of how his late uncle passed though, he can't resist the chance to investigate, which leads him to a grumpy old salvage yard owner and a butt-load of trouble.

you can dance if you want to )
A/n: Here's art batch #3 for wipbigbang. I HAD to have this one when I saw that the Avengers go camping - I've actually always, always wanted to write one of those myself, but never gotten around to it. The idea was too excellent to let slip by. XD The snippets I got did not disappoint, and then the lovely Thassalia offered for me to read the fic ahead of publishing and I fell madly in love. Guys, the fic is brilliant and pitch perfect. GO READ IT. I'm not generally a Bruce/Natasha fan, unless they're written exceptionally well, but Thassalia does it - there's chemistry and amazing characterization and shows how they actually could work really nicely together (with plenty of delicious UST and angst, natch).

I absolutely had to try my hand at recreating them all sitting around the campfire singing songs, as it was my favorite snippet, then one of my fav scenes in the whole fic.

Thank you, Thassalia, for being a great Bang partner and writing such a brilliant fic. :D I'm so, so glad I got to do art for it! :D

Fic Title: Up In The Air, Junior Birdman
Fic Summary: The Avengers go camping. It's better than building a tower out of office furniture.

A/n: My second art entry for [community profile] wipbigbang! The summary of this fab fic by [personal profile] afteriwake snagged my attention and I had to scoop it up for arting. :D Legit I had SO much fun doing the title art - 'shopping magic into Sherlock and Moriarty's hands, then creating the glow of it on their hands and clothes might've been my fav thing in any Bang art I did this summer. XD I don't even know why, I just was literally giggling with glee over it as I painted and layered and made the glow happen.

I worried about pulling off the awesome visual of the floating, magic/energy filled room when Sherlock loses himself in his violining, but it was such a beautiful moment, I had to try, going with something more visually colorful to represent more of the feel of the moment than what actually physically was "shown", if that makes sense.

Huge thanks to [personal profile] afteriwake for being a lovely, lovely Bang partner! <3

Fic Title: Never Will I Forget The Deep Shadows, Never WIll I Waste The Moon's Light
Fic Summary: The Holmes brothers come from a long line of powerful magic practitioners, but they are forced to keep their skills a secret. When Molly accidentally finds out about Sherlock’s powers and doesn’t turn away from him he slowly realizes that this pleases him, but soon enough he gets careless and is put in a position he would rather not be in, especially when others find out that she knows and attempt to use her as a pawn in their own games and machinations.

it calls me and no one knows )
A/n: Here comes my first (of five!?!! I know, I know) art posts for the [community profile] wipbigbang 2017!! I found a most excellent partner in [personal profile] wildcard_47 who was excellent to collaborate with and helped me immensely with cap hunting and suggestions to make the art better. <3 I haven't done art for Mad Men before, so it was nice to dip my toe in a little. Plus, I got to figure out how to recolor a black and white photo, which was an interesting challenge. XD

Fic Title: an island in your arms
Fic Summary: Tried to run, tried to hide - break on through to the other side. // New York, 1967. Two friends fall out, fall to pieces, and somewhere in between, they fall in love. A Mad Men season 5 AU.

A/n: I've been a bit of a lurker on the [profile] spn_j2_bigbang Supernatural/Big Bang for a couple years now. I'm not much of a slash or RPF shipper myself, but the people there often turn out some really great works, and I've wanted to play in the sandbox too! ;D Last year I missed art claims, so I made sure to be more on top of it this year so I could scoop something gen to art, and I'm SO happy with the fic I got!!

It's FAB, you guys. The angst is delicious, the feels are high, and the story unexpected. I thoroughly enjoyed working with firesign10 to do this art, and come up with something appropriately haunting for her fic. :)

Fic Title: A Step Beyond Logic
Fic Summary: Starting when Gadreel kills Kevin, Dean suffers a series of personal losses that devastate him. He continues to hunt, but goes down a path of moral ambiguity, self-searching, and analysis that lead him to take drastic action. Working with Rowena, Dean confronts God (Chuck) and seeks to reshape the world on a scale that even the Winchesters have never attempted before.

in your dreams you'll hear me calling )
Hey you!!

First off, I want to say that I am so excited that you are creating for me!! :D Second: I am a huge rambler - but you already know that from my messy, lengthy prompts XD - so this letter is about to be extra long. BUT please know that optional details are optional. I love genfic so I'm pretty much guaranteed to love what you do. Take them prompts and go wherever the muse blows you - combine, mix and match, get inspired and go sideways with it, whatever, it's all good. :D

Lastly before I get super rambling: THANK YOU, you are super rad for doing this challenge, whether it be fic or art or vid or whatever else. <3

(My speak below is mostly aimed at an author, but whatever applies to art, applies to art as well. :D)

higher and higher baby )
Hey, it's here just slightly before a full year - that's good, right? XD

tried my best and went right back to sleep )

Updates!

With the recent sketchy LJ updates, I've now backed up this entire journal on my dreamwidth (which previously I had literally only so I could comment on some friend's things, haha!) and just wanted to let you all know that, plus a bunch of random updates.

LJ vs DW

First off: as of this moment, I'm not planning to stop posting to LJ entirely, though I of course want to be where the people are, and I know most people are leaving LJ (understandably). So for now, I'll be mirroring my journal entires between LJ and DW (my entries are few and far between for the most part anyways, haha, although I likely will be signing up as an artist for Marvel and WIP Bang again so there'll be a flurry of entries when that happens) and may eventually make the full transfer to DW.

I will not be deleting this journal unless somewhere in the future it becomes totally necessary. If you are also on DW, please add me! I'd love to stay pals over there as well. :) I'm here: https://red-b-rackham.dreamwidth.org

Now onto more fun stuff...

all my friends are heathens take it slow )

I've been posting about this on my tumblr but for anyone not on tumblr, I thought I would post here as well.

There's a project going on right now, that is an auction of fanworks/fan labor with proceeds going to charity, called "Fandom Trumps Hate". I thought it was a super cool thing and decided to put my name in the hat for it. I have no clue if anyone is at al interested in "bidding" on me for my stuff (there are so many people participating!), but I thought I might as well put myself out there in the name of several good causes. :) Even if you're not interested in bidding on me, I very much encourage you to go take a look at the other people participating and see if you can find something for you (here).

I personally will be offering fic, as well as beta services. I'll put all my information below, with relevant links. I'm really excited to do a fic (hopefully) so check out my offerings and hit me up. :) Hobey ho!

let's go )
A/n: And here's my third and final art for this year's marvel_bang! This one is all about Tony and Natasha, working through trust issues and chemistry and sticky situations over the years, starting in Iron Man 2 and branching out AU-ishly from there (it's alternatiely summarized as "Five times Tony Stark did not sleep with Natasha Romanoff, and one time he did). I jumped at the chance to do art for this week, since Tony/Nat has been a guilty pleasure fic of mine forever. They just have a lot of potential and chemistry and I'm always up for seeing fic that explores that. :D

This art is rated PG-13 for some attempted sexy manips.

Fic Title: The Only Truth That Sticks
Fic Summary: It took years for Natasha to understand Tony on a personal level, and in that time their relationship has ended up as many of Natasha’s do: they are colleagues who can work together professionally, but don’t even pretend to trust each other. She sets her sights on repairing their relationship, but with Tony Stark, nothing is ever going to be easy. (Or: Five times Tony Stark did not sleep with Natasha Romanoff, and one time he did.)

IT'S FINALLY HERRREEEEEEE

So, I had this fic idea like... after The Avengers came out. And I started and stopped it for years after - loved the idea but couldn't wrestle it, so I shelved it. Loved it again, but shortly after starting it, it was too overwhelming, so it was shelved. Loved, too much research or probelms or couldn't sort it and untangle it, etc, shelved it. Over and over forever. Then finally, I committed myself to finishing it (anyone who knows me, I have this thing about finishing projects like this that I start, lol), I fought with it a bunch more - lots of brainstorming with pals, various beta help, lots of me whining and complaining and trying to decide if this whole thing was even worth it. And then the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang came around and I thought "OKAY. ONCE AND FOR ALL."

That's the background story. XD Now, we're here, a day after my official posting day on the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, and guess what? IT'S. HERE. Or rather, Part 1 (of 3) is here, BUT STILL. I can't describe how good it feels to FINALLY be getting this story out in the world, omw.



assemble )
A/n: For my second art excursion in the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, I did art for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] paleogymnast (who awesomely arted for a whole bunch of people this Bang, as well as writing a fic!). The story is about Natasha and Laura on the run, protecting the Barton kids, in the wake of the Sokovia Accords and Clint getting stashed in The Raft. Luckily, Linda Cardinelli has been in a few recent things, so it was easier to find some decent pictures of her than I thought it was going to be. ;D

Fic Title: 10,000 Miles to Home
Fic Summary: The Sokovia Accords didn’t stop with the Avengers. The goal of the accords was to ensure the registration of every enhanced individual everywhere in the world, regardless of age, occupation, or country of origin, and using a very flexible definition of enhanced. So when Steve Rogers broke the Avengers out of the Raft, Secretary Ross and UN forces sought to strike back at their families… only it didn’t quite go as planned. This is the story of Laura Barton and Natasha Romanoff on the run with Lila, Cooper, and Nathaniel Barton, and moving towards reunification. Ross really should have known not to mess with Black Widow. He really should have known not to go after Laura Barton.

hello from the other side )

A/n: My first art for my first [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! This fic is a lot of fun with copious mutual pining, asSteve and Darcy have to live together as a fake couple so Steve can keep Darcy safe from some very bad guys. I'm happy I got to do art for this, as Steve/Darcy has always been a cute ship I enjoy, and [livejournal.com profile] dizzy_redhead wrote them so great. :D I ended up combining three different Chris Evans-es to get shaved-head!Steve in boxers, because I just loved that image in the story so much, I had to try and art it. :D #redpretendsshecandomanips

Fic Title: see right through my walls
Fic Summary: In the wake of a kidnapping, Darcy goes into hiding with Steve along to keep her safe, witness-protection style. But pretending to be a couple doesn't leave them much room to avoid their mutual attraction, which only grows stronger the more time they spend together.

Dear fabulous author,

Hey and welcome to getting matched with me! I'm a rambler and I tried to keep it short but um. Ya. First off, I wanted to emphasis that optional details are optional, so please feel free to do your thang and don't feel pressured whatsoever by my rambling thoughts. These are merely ideas, and you are awesome. :)

now i gotta cut loose / footloose / kick off your sunday shoes )

So, taking a break from packing (long story) to do a post up, seeing as how I have now finished all 11 seasons of Cheers! I started it, what, how many years ago? Stopped, started again, stopped for ages, started again... Anyways, this summer, I picked it back up and polished off seasons 9-11 (possibly season 8 as well... I can't remember now, haha).

20 min shows are always super easy to binge, but also, this show is a great brain cleanser if I watched something too intense close to bed and it was a great background show while working on wedding stuff for my friend this summer. Also great background for packing - I pretty much did season 11 entirely in the past week during packing. XD

As in previous Cheers related entries, I just have some random thoughts and ramblings. Warning: this got long.

where everybody knows your name )

For: [livejournal.com profile] shannon_kind

A/n: My third and final set of art for [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang is probably my favorite, to be honest - I love how the title card turned out! Shan was a great collaborator and I worked to make her vision come true. :D I have yet to read the full fic due to some RL stress, but I am really looking forward to it, because I absolutely loved the snippets I received.

I've been intrigued by the idea of female!Dean fics for a whil but just never ventured into reading one before. Based on the fab snippets for Shan's fic, hers will be my first. I had a lot of fun turning Eliza Dushku into fem!Dean. :D (Altho it turned out to be shockingly difficult to find good caps of Sam in a suit with a gun???)

Fic Title: Key Harbor
Fic Summary: Dean and Sam investigate a small coastal town where strange blue lights are causing amnesia. Even worse, people are remembering things that have never happened! Sam watches his brother approach the marina door, only to have a hunter he’s never met step through the other side. Meanwhile, Dean finds himself face to face with a Sam who doesn’t recognize him. Working with new partners, how will the Winchesters solve the case and get Dean back home?

For: [livejournal.com profile] celeste9

A/n: And now, the second fic I did for heroinebigbang! This is a super cute fic about Rey finding her way amongst the rebels, complete with Finn and Poe broship, and a heart to heart with Leia. I wanted to create something bright and warm for the title screen, and I HAD to do something with that quote about being like Leia. Hope you like, darling! <3

Fic Title: learn to love the skies i'm under
Fic Summary: Rey finds her place within the Resistance.

how can it be i still believe )
For: [livejournal.com profile] guineamania

A/n: For this first fic I did for [livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang, I wanted to create something moody and oppressive for this story, since it takes place in a world where Malcolm Merlyn is reigning with Team Overwatch and Team Arrow working to fight back. The one scene I wanted to try and create was Sara meeting up with Oliver in the Glades instead of "Overwatch" meeting "The Arrow", with his quote about noting she's a soldier/fighter and not a hacker. But after much photoshopping failures (and lack of caps), I just could NOT get a decent looking masked white-clad Sara Lance. XD So instead, I worked on another title piece, this one even more dark and oppressive and dramatic than the first. :) Hope you like!!

Fic Title: Overwatch
Fic Summary: Oliver Queen returns to a Starling City ruled by an oppressive overlord, Malcolm Merlyn. Team Arrow is fighting in the shadows with a mysterious accomplice while Oliver is Malcolm's right hand. When our team need a little extra help, secret identities are revealed and Team Overwatch need to step up and save the day.

A/n: Here's the next fic I did art for, for [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang. :D Jupiter Ascending is kind of a mess but I really enjoyed it (and its potential) and jumped at the chance to do some JA fic art. VR is a fab human who I loved working with! :D I'm very much looking forward to reading the whole fic. \o/ I wanted to do more pieces for the great snippets that VR sent, but alas, caps were elusive (and I can't draw worth crap, lol). As it was, I had a *heck* of a time trying to do shirtless!Caine who looked dirty and gross and scraggly blonde. XD #redpretendsshecandomanips

Fic Title: The Wind Between
Fic Summary: What if Caine and Jupiter met a different way?
