This story was written for the spn_j2_bigbang on livejournal.

We have no recollection of what we intended to write when we began this story, but I’m sure it wasn’t this. Still, we think it came out fine, given that we know nothing about Interpol, or industrial espionage, and don’t personaly know any assassins or jewel thieves.

To our amazing beta, [personal profile] framedhim who put so much work into this fic and who knows grammar like whoa, seriously, you rock. So hard. You flagged up so many glaring errors, and we will be forever grateful that you put up with the process so graciously. So much love to you!

And then, of course, there’s our wonderful artist, [personal profile] thruterryseyes, who picked us when we’d given up even hoping, and who did us proud with so much stunning art that we are still dazed. Please, go look at her journal. I’m not kidding! You will find it HERE.

And last but not least, Wendy. Year after year she has endured the headaches and frustrations of putting up with us flaky authors, and hasn’t run away screaming yet. (Not that we think you’re old, Wendy, just seasoned!) Thank you so much for being a most wonderful organizer, and providing us with so much wonderful long fic every year. Our hats are off to you.

Summary: A cruise should be a relaxing vacation away from the worries of the everyday world, but with an international assassin running wild, not to mention a master jewel thief, relaxing is the last word Jared Padalecki would use to describe his voyage. Fortunately there's a really hot lounge singer on board to help take his mind off things.

candygramme: (Jensen It's okay)
Sorry to take so long to post. I am here at last, hopefully in time. It's 8pm here in rain-washed Vancouver.

I picked up [livejournal.com profile] just_ruth's prompts, and decided to see what I could do with her desire for b. Apple pie, ice cream and a poltergeist. Together with the deliciously multitalented [livejournal.com profile] dizzojay, we set out to produce a multimedia delight for her delectation.

That sounds so good, doesn't it. All praise to [livejournal.com profile] dizzojay, who wasn't even slightly phased by the cracky nature of my offering and who produced an adorable piece of art for it, so here is:

Fic title: Born to Dance
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] candygramme and [livejournal.com profile] spoonlessone
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] eprimacol
Genre: rps, slash, au
Pairing: Jensen/Jared plus a cast of thousands
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 41,378
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] framedhim and [livejournal.com profile] aire_blair
Summary: Once there were two young men. One was from a wealthy family, while the other had to struggle to survive. One lived in isolation and didn't know the first thing about finding friends, while the other fought to keep himself and his family alive. Both were incredibly talented. Both were born to dance, but only one of them could win the title and break free from their confining lives.
Notes: Every year for the longest time now, Wendy has patiently organized the J2 Big Bang challenge, and it's been our favorite challenge ever. It's forced us to write, when we're both incredibly lazy. It's introduced us to the most amazing artists, and ensured that we have high quality stories to read all through the summer. It must be a logistical nightmare to round up all the talent and make sure that everything runs smoothly. All praise to Wendy for her efforts. Long may she continue!
We hadn't known of [livejournal.com profile] eprimacol's artwork before she chose our story to illustrate, and it was with mounting excitement we watched as she produced panel after panel of the most gorgeous art. We are so grateful she chose us. Please go look at her work. She not only produced great beauty, she encapsulated the boys' characters in each of her panels. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] eprimacol
Our two beta readers, [livejournal.com profile] framedhim and [livejournal.com profile] aire_blair, were both superbly generous with their time and gave us the most incredible help in every way imaginable. This story would have been a mess of inconsistencies and run-on sentences without their help. We owe them bigtime. [livejournal.com profile] candygramme offers her firstborn to whichever one of you would like him. He does eat a lot though. [livejournal.com profile] spoonlessone is happy to offer her firstborn as well, but she's not sure what you'd want him for. If not, you'll have to make do with our undying gratitude.

Big birthday thank you to [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator and [livejournal.com profile] aqualegia for the pretty presents.

The family pulled out all the stops to provide a sumptuous Indian repast, and gave me a beautiful wheelbarrow. A work colleague gave me a stormtrooper for my desk, and as a friend said, I'll now be able to conquer the galaxy one garden at a time.

I am totally broke, and one cat is recovering at great expense from lung worm. The other has just come down with cat flu, despite having had the shots. *growls*

Big bang is going well, I think, although there's a fair bit still to do. I am partway through the last chapter of Hurricane, and that will be wonderful to finish, since it was a WIP for years.

I have other WIPs to finish, but that one will be a really good start.

Master List | Part 5
candygramme: (Christmas3)
< a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXwHHtS5ZJ4">Not a Job, by Elbow
This is a song from Dean to Sam. "You don't have to go chat with Lucifer. Sleep it off." Why doesn't that boy ever listen? Elbow is a British band that got together in 1990. They are still going, I'm pretty sure.

< a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REg8NhIjKgY">Dice, by Finlay Quaye
This would be Sam's response to Dean after getting him back from the dead. Yes I am schmoopy, and this is such a loving song. Finlay Quaye is British once again, and I believe that this song was released in 2004.

< a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLXCFDAoOD8">Tower of Strength, by The Mission UK
They are everything to each other, and that's what this song is all about. The Mission UK were formed in the mid 80s, after the Sisters of Mercy folded.

< a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEq8DBxm0J4">How Soon is Now?, by The Smiths
Dean and his lamentable lack of self esteem is perfectly expressed by this song. The Smiths have been around since 1982, and specialized in songs that weren't always comfortable.

< a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTFVMMCwsss">Lunatic Fringe, by Red Rider
I always think of Jus in Bello when I hear this song, and would love a vid set to this, with all the demons boiling up over the horizon to do battle at the police depot. Red Rider was a Canadian band, and I have to admit the music video for Lunatic Fringe is just a little hokey, but when the song gets going with its driving beat, I could see the brothers Winchester driving away in the Impala with it playing on stereo. I guess it just missed the 70s, as it was released in around 1980, but I'd love to hear it featured on the show.

ETA: Sorry about the apparent formatting issues. The links still work, so I'll leave it for another day.
candygramme: (Christmas3)
I still love the originals, but these covers... I love covers, so it was really hard to choose. I may do another set in a day or two, just because I love them so much. However, I distilled down the first batch, and here they are.

Somebody I Used to Know, by Darren Criss & Matt Bomer. The original, by Gotye
The two men here, Darren Criss and Matt Bomer, sing like angels. Love the song, and there are a half a dozen covers of it I could have chosen, but this is the winner!

Needles and Pins, by Smokie in 1977. The original, by the Searchers in 1963.
It's hard to top the Searchers version, but I was ready for the Smokie version when it came out, over 20 years later.

From Me to You, by Walk Off The Earth in 2012. The original was by the Beatles back in 1962.
I grew up with the Beatles, but this was the first intro I had to Walk Off The Earth. I saw this in an ad on TV and had to google to find them. It was worth it.

I Dream of Wires, by Robert Palmer. Here's the original, by Gary Numan from 1977.
I love the worlds that Gary Numan built in his songs. He is the synth player on Robert Palmer`s version, so it isn`t quite without direction from the creator.

Madness, by Street Corner Symphony. This is the original ,by Madness in 2012.
I love A Capella music. Street Corner Symphony is A Capella at its best.

Finally, because I couldn't decide on just 5, here's a bonus.

I'm Gonna Be Strong, by Cyndi Lauper. The original is from the 60s , by Gene Pitney
Cyndi has an extraordinary voice. End. Of. Story.
candygramme: (Christmas3)
1: What the Hell I Got, by Michel Pagliaro
Some 1975 Canadiana for you. I wasn't around when this came out, but I love it anyway!

2: To Cut a Long Story Short, by Spandau Ballet
This one came out in 1980, and I still love it. The 80s was an awesome time for music.

3: Istanbul, by They Might be Giants
I'm pretty sure this came out in the 80s, and it's so silly, but somehow catchy. Don't blame me if you end up with an earworm from it!

4: This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us, by Sparks
TBH, I'm not quite sure why I like this song so much. I just do. Ron and Russell Mael released this in 1974, and completely blew me away. Weird song, but awesome.

5: One way Ticket, by Precious Wilson and Eruption
She's gorgeous, and the song is as catchy as hell. This came out in the late 70s, if I recall. I still love it.
