Bigbang 2009 - Each day's a gift  
Second Bigbang post. I have to tell I'm more pleased with this than I was with the previous Bigbang, however the lack of time is showing. I apologize from the author.

I had some fun with this and you can check other approaches and what I ended up with.
Enjoy the story and the accompanying illustrations!


Title: Each Day's a Gift
Author: soledadseraph
Artist: nyaubaby
Rating: Story: NC-17 but the art:PG-13
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: January 1998; two lives become irreversibly tangled together when rookie cop Jared Padalecki gets caught up in his first big case; seventeen year old misper, Jensen Ackles. Young and naice, he's not prepared for the emotional impact of Jensen's plight and he finds himself getting sucked into a world he never knew existed; a world of pain and friendship and broken trust.

Eleven years later, youth and innocence long since left behind, the one thing Jared can't forget is Jensen. That inability is the one thing that's going to turn both their lives upside down.

- Graphic flower from google (coloring and little additions by me)
- Textures mostly from elli
- Thank you for mkitty3 for a very early beta on the manip. As I used differently I didn't edit it out.

Thank you for everyone who thought I can actually finish this year's bigbang. I know I'm such a lazy person but starting a job, being on a business trip and working more than I expected results with a pretty hectic time schedule. I feel happy that I finally finished :)

Thank you once more!!

Thank you for your patience ;)

oh my god!!!!!!!!

This is GREAT!!! I am so happy you to do that work for a fic by soledadseraph...

The banner is amazing, with that colour texture (and the vintage one!) but wow!!!!! the alternate banners are INCREDIBLE... I don´t know which I love the most... the Missing Report is really a good idea... the wallpaper so wonderful... and the icons... I LOVE THE THIRD!!!!!!!

And finally... the manip... *dies*

*looks again the manip*

*dies*
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on August 13th, 2009 12:08 pm (UTC)
OH GOD! your comment, dude!

I wasn't fully satisfied with the alternate banners I created first, so I just wanted to go with something else. Although I do think the alternate ones might be fitting to the fic's mood better.

Anyhow, thank you SO much!!! your comment is so sweet :)

Yeah manips... are good, lol.

Oh wow. This art is BEAUTIFUL, babygirl! :D

I looooooooove the manip. It looks so realistic. The use of textures in the wallpaper is also gorgeous. And the missing persons report is lovely also - the pic you used was great.

Fantastic, darling! I'm so proud of you. <3333333333333333
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on August 13th, 2009 12:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks Janice! I think it looks better than my previous one. I'm happy that I could pull it off on time and I even got the chance to post it even though I'm in Beijing :)

LOVE YOU!!!! :D

Oh beautiful! I love how you combined the textures and everything! The case file was a wonderful addition too! Great job!
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on August 13th, 2009 12:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I really wanted to do the file as I thought it would look great. Also I wanted to show Jensen how Jared's seen him the first time :D
Gwyn: JA: PRIESTLYgwyntastic on August 12th, 2009 06:28 pm (UTC)

I wanted to do at least one manip for this year bigbang, so there it goes ;) I'm happy you like it!
Ninasiberian_angel on August 12th, 2009 07:30 pm (UTC)
Holy, that art is nothing short of AMAZING!
I'll mem' the story and read it when I have more time, but the summary sounds absolutely intriguing!

Unbelievable how perfect your manips are ♥

It's worth living for comments like this ;)
chemm80: j2 smoochchemm80 on August 13th, 2009 04:40 pm (UTC)
Wow, beautiful! I'm especially impressed with the J2 manip, because I usually find those awful to the point I cringe, finding them almost painful to look at, but this one...works. *nods*
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on August 20th, 2009 01:59 pm (UTC)
Oh gosh, I know what you mean. Hence I'm trying to be subtle and not showing too much. I think those animations that doesn't show full frontal and obscene is always better than the ones that leaves nothing to the imagination.


:) Thanks.
evil cliffhanger girlalienat on August 13th, 2009 05:31 pm (UTC)
Wow. Your art blew me away. I already snatched the wallpaper for my desktop. Hope you don't mind.
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on August 20th, 2009 02:00 pm (UTC)
oh not at all :)

I'm happy you like it! Thanks :D
eruminator: Jensen flowereruminator on August 13th, 2009 09:20 pm (UTC)
Everything is so lovely! I particularly loved the alternate banners, Jensen's photograph and icon number 5.

Also, about Jensen's photograph... totally gorgeous how you added those subtle textures to make it look like real paper-- and if I'm seeing it right, fingerprints. LARGE fingerprints, as if a tall man who was proportionate in EVERY way fingered the photograph often. Also, the photo you chose was so high-school yearbook/photography class! I love it!

Also also? Jensen's so pretty. Just because it can't be said enough.
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on August 20th, 2009 02:05 pm (UTC)
Oh cool. I think the alternate banners are working with the fic, but I just wanted something different. Still I'm glad you like it.

oh, lol. The fingerprint wasn't intentional. If you see then I'm more than happy :)

And Jensen is GORGEOUS!!! :D
Me: Leon/Claire (right here)slash_solace on August 16th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
These match the story perfect. You did a really good job of fitting these with the idea of the story. Not saying the other artists did crap work but every author should be so lucky to get you.
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on August 20th, 2009 02:06 pm (UTC)
Oh thank you so much :)

Don't make me blush more than I am blushing right now ;)
Although I do think this was my last Bigbang.
