Made for Round 10 of [profile] redheads20in20 Enjoy!


Nice girls, they're pathetic. Here's to evil skanks. )

Ever since his first appearance at the end of "Lazarus Rising", Castiel, the Angel of Thursday, is a favorite character of mine. His awkwardness when it comes to humans (and interaction with them) often serves as a means for funny moments (which is enhanced by the way Misha Collins plays these scenes), just as his bluntness. Over the years (and seasons), he learned to develop his own, free, will (thanks to Dean and Sam), and rebel against his own brethren. And even though he made some questionable decisions since then, he's still a (mostly) powerful ally for the Winchester brothers (who's hopefully not at the end of his road, considering the Season 12 finale). This batch was made for Round 2 of [community profile] spn20in20. Enjoy!

I found a liquor store. And I drank it. )

Once in a while, I like to snatch myself a real challenge when it comes to iconing. Not that usual rounds at my various icon communities aren't challenges in their own right, but sometimes, it needs a bit more. Like sorting various characters from Supernatural into the four houses of Hogwarts. Sounds easy? Yeah, well, maybe on a first glance. But add in the fact that I didn't know squat about these houses before this challenge, and that there are way too many characters in the Supernatural universe to fill only five slots, and you'll see my side ;). I'll add some of the other house members in text form only below the icons, which were made for the current round over at [profile] monthlyinspo. Enjoy!

Benny Lafitte is, in more than one meaning, the exception to the rule. First of all, he's fighting alongside/protecting Dean (and later on Cas, though he and the angel don't really get along in the beginning) in Purgatory despite being a vampire. Second, once he's topside again (thanks to Dean playing taxi driver for his soul), he's really trying to hide himself in plain sight and having a "normal" life (which is, funny enough, kind of a continuation to Ty Olsson's first SPN appearance). And last but not least, he's been on my extended favorite character list way before I ever saw a single episode of Season 8, thanks to some wonderful AU fanfictions out there where he's the supportive, loyal brother outside the Winchester family to Dean. This batch was made for Round 21 of [profile] spn20_20. Enjoy!

The loyal Vampire... )

One of my favorite things, in general, when it comes to DVDs are the gag reels. It's always a lot of fun to see (a) what kind of shenanigans are happening behind the scenes, and (b) that actors are just human beings that mess up scenes, no matter how many times they are repeating it XD So, what to expect when a show is called "Supernatural"? Out-of-this-world loads of fun, of course! ;) Even back in Season 1, our boys were already Comedy Gold, though Jared was definitely the bigger clown between the takes (Jensen just had to warm up to that all!). This batch was made for Round 1 at [community profile] spn20in20 over at DW. Enjoy!

I wonder how they get anything done at all... )

To be honest, when I started watching "Supernatural" all those years ago, Sam wasn't my favorite at all, not even my second. For the life of me, I can't give any reasons for that, except that it was just that. It should take until seeing "The End" for the first time (in English) to make me see Sam as more than Dean's little brother. The way he portrays Lucifer in this one is just stunning and was, to me, the first real glimpse of Jared's acting chops. And since then, I not only got to see more layers of Sam (and even his bad side, which is its own kind of awesome), I also kind of fell in love with Jared's open real life persona. He's not afraid to talk about the downs he's been experiencing, and that's a brave step for everyone, even more for an actor. Now, I can't imagine Sam without Dean (or vice versa) the way I can't imagine Jared being at an event without Jensen. This set was made for the current round over at [profile] thecw_20n20. Enjoy!

One of the things I love the most about Supernatural, ever since I got the first season on DVD, are the gag reels. Jensen and Jared are Comedy Gold, with the rest of the cast not far behind. Thanks to "Shaving People Punting Things" on YouTube/Vimeo we're getting some bloopers from season 12, and god, these two men still know how to have fun on the set.

Fun on the set... )

You know the old adage that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Well, if that's true, some TV folks probably felt that way after the airing of "Changing Channels", which is, hands down, still the funniest SPN episode so far. We, the fans, know from the gag reels that both Jensen and Jared have a huge talent for comedy, but seeing it here on display, watching them navigate their way through TV land, is a sure-fire way to make your belly ache - from laughter. And still, in the final stretch of the episode, the show reminds us of what's looming on the horizon - both in Gabriel's words and the muted colors. This batch was made for Round 20 over at [livejournal.com profile] spn20_20. Enjoy!

Comedy Gold Ahead!! )

Round 3 over at [livejournal.com profile] thecw_20n20 was kind of a free round. We still had to choose a CW show and if we wanted to icon the guys or the gals of our claim, but other than that, we could icon to our heart's desire. I tried to include a variety, but there have been definitely way too much guys on this show so far XD And I just can't avoid our handsome Winchester brothers, can I? Enjoy!!

Now that Phase 9 of [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards is over, I thought it would be nice to show you all the various artworks I've done for the challenges. A phase runs approximately 3 months and is filled with tons of fun! (you'll never believe how much creativity is hidden in yourself!) Warning: IMAGE-HEAVY!!

Sigtags

You need these little beauties whenever you post a response to a challenge. It's helping the mods to keep tracks of your participations (and in case you post to the wrong team thread). See them as kind of a business card, telling everyone which team you're on.

Sigtags Galore... )


Icons

Iconing around the fandoms... )


Graphic Mix

Fanart, Icons, Sigtags... )


Special - Joker Challenge

For this challenge, issued by our awesome mod kitty, we had to spread our wings (so to speak). There were games (like doing a labyrinth, finding words, do a quiz, a puzzle, or coloring a page), we had to post screencaps, do icons, sigtags, and last but not least, one big graphic - with all artworks somehow linked to the landcomm's general theme of card games.

A bunch of handsome guys... )


Team Battles

Next to the regular challenges, that are open to all members of all teams, each team can issue a so-called "battle" in order to get more points (most likely to happen among the first two teams). Usually, these battles are themed, but what you do with that theme, it's solely up to you.

Battlegrounds this way... )


Fanfiction

As a writer at heart, I can't resist writing challenges ;) So, next to the graphic challenges, I also wrote several stories for this phase:

Writer's Digest... )




If you have any questions about a challenge, how [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards works, or about any of the artworks above, just drop me a PM or a comment ;)

Round 22 over at [livejournal.com profile] character_draw was a theme-free round, meaning we could icon our claim to our own's heart's desire. I chose Dean Winchester, but boy, this handsome devil doesn't go easy on you, especially if you have to narrow a slew of 100+ "perfect" pics down to 10. There were definitely some rock salt, an exorcism (or two) and some holy water in order XD Enjoy!

We all have them - favorites. Be it a favorite character, couple, scene, or anything else. And in all the years of watching TV, you might get a nice (and long) list of these favorites. I went over mine and pulled the best of the best for this batch, made for the current round over at [livejournal.com profile] tvcharacter20. Enjoy!

My personal best of TV... )

According to this (unfortunately) German article, "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" will get some visits from four former "Supernatural" actors in its upcoming Season 2 (midseason on CBS).


ETA: here's an English one too


So, before you click the link, give me some guesses!
Of all the SPN episodes I've seen so far, "The End" still has a special place in my heart. From Jensen's stellar acting as both Dean versions and the sensational set decoration, from Jared's stunning appearance after almost being absent the whole episode to the bleak future we're presented with - it's still one of my favorites. This batch was made for [livejournal.com profile] episodes20in20. Enjoy!

Next to a leather jacket, there's nothing else that brings out the best in almost every man than a tuxedo. Here's a batch of 20 attractive guys, being even more hot and attractive in every designer's best wardrobe, made for the current round over at [livejournal.com profile] gents20in20. Enjoy!

From his very first appearance in "Tall Tales" on, the Trickster was an interesting character, since you never knew what was going to happen whenever he was around. One of the (way too) few episodes with him brought us serious heartache, covered in bittersweet chocolate, over and over again ("Mystery Spot"), another took both the Winchester brothers and the audience on a wild roller coaster ride through a candy-colored TV land before ending in dull colors - and the reveal of the Trickster's true identity ("Changing Channels"). This batch was made for Round 19 over at [livejournal.com profile] spn20_20. Enjoy!

Beware of the Trickster... )

Of all the wonderful female characters we have met in the show so far, Ellen was, in my opinion, the closest to a mother figure both Winchester boys could get. She was fierce, could stand her ground, didn't take any crap from the boys, and most of all, she saw that Sam and Dean couldn't be held responsible for the actions of their father. And her end, alongside her daughter Jo, is still the saddest scene in SPN history for me. This batch was made for Round 18 of [livejournal.com profile] spn20_20. Enjoy!
