free fall

spn_summergen Masterlist 2017

My recs for this season are very incomplete--I had time to rec stuff at the very beginning, and that cave fic at the very end, but missed the entire middle--but I read/beheld every single fic and piece of art, and each was well worth the investment. <33333333 Thank you summergen-er,s for being a consistent highlight of my life!

This year actually marks spn_summergen's ELEVENTH anniversary as a challenge, and my eighth time participating. As the only challenge I've ever participated in every year I've bene in fandom, it's near and dear to my heart.

I'd also like to thank all our lovely commenters, which are so much the lifeblood of fandom and fanwork exchange--especially madebyme_x and finchandsparrow, who are freaking superstar respondents of the highest order. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3!

At long last, the big reveal! Thanks so very much to all our wonderful participants, who gave fandom the most delightful works to fill up our lazy *cough* summer days. We hope everyone found something to love, and will join us again next year! ;) On behalf of your mods dugindeep, kalliel and quickreaver, have a great rest-of-your-summer, and here is the Masterlist:

[Art/Fic] Higher - circus AU Ruby

This one was fun. <3 My favorite parts about drawing this were Ruby's right arm (not sure why)and her hair. And the SW tattoo. But Ruby's hair! I thought it was going to be terrible because it looked so bad for so long, but I thought it came out really well. I loved putting all the different colors in, and also the highlights.

My least favorite part about drawing this was the silks, because I thought my fingers were going to fall off, my god.

Ruby's facial features were traced from this photograph, because I definitely did not draw her so nice freehand. I wish I knew what my recipient thought of their gift!

Oh, and as an FYI, I think she looks best at her original resolution, so please click the pic for the full-size version~ Thanks!

Title: Higher
Character: circus artist Ruby
Rating: SFW (mildly suggestive attire)
Media: digital art/prose poetry
Warnings: N/A
Summary: she dreams her vessel fearless. an artist, big top, high in the sky (no belly to the earth, not this time) she dreams her vessel powerful--a girl, five feet, heavy with muscle--a coma, why?--how?--she dreams wild things, wilder and wilder as the summer goes on because she is so


Notes: The AU where Ruby chooses Sam over Lucifer--and her vessel, in its past life, was a circus artist. For polleekin!
