I’m a U.S. Goddamn Marshal, Tim, and I always get my fucking man.Collapse )

author: someotherstorm
fandom: Justified
pairing: Dickie Bennett (Dickie Bennett/Dewey Crowe, Dickie Bennett/Raylan Givens one-sided, unrequited)
content: contains non-graphic reference to non-major character rape, dubious consent

The forced cool air feels strange on his bare fingers. They flex and move in nervous twitches, wanting somewhere to hide.Collapse )

Storm
title: the whirlwind in the thorn tree
author: norgbelulah
artist: someotherstorm
fandom: justified
pairing: raylan/boyd/ava
medium: photoshop, sneaky use of instagram >>

artist notes: this is for the undeadbigbang, for norgbelulah's awesome story! you should read it because it's a great, character-driven story and it's told through the POV of Loretta McCready, who is pitch-perfect. i absolutely love the relationship between Loretta and Raylan, which remains completely true to canon in this AU.

the story is awesomely character-driven, and i wanted to do art that somehow conveyed the relationship between the various characters and their geography, which is something that struck me as particularly significant as i read the story, and therefore it's the "background" of the art. i also picked up an emphasis on "memories" and tried to do something with that idea, hence the "snapshots" theme.

the title is from johnny cash's when the man comes around, and the tree is the main focal point because of the idea of branches and roots -- and the tree branches are bare because, obvs, death and zombies -- but with the promise of new growth, too, as the story ends on a hopeful note.

like i said, i overthink things all the time but this is what you do when you have an art history degree you never use ;)


shhh storm stop babbling and post the art alreadyCollapse )

check out the fic, because it's awesome and just possibly i got a little sniffly >> also who doesn't need more Raylan angsting in their life? :D

title: you'll never leave harlan (alive)
author: ghostrunner7
fandom: justified
pairing: raylan/boyd
artist: someotherstorm
medium: photoshop

notes: i love this fic a lot, it's brilliant and you should read it. it's grim and stark and just lovely, and so i wanted to make art that conveyed the same sort of atmosphere. i based it on a line from the story:

Raylan absorbs that for a minute, as they roll past a highway sign that announces Cumberland to be thirty miles ahead and a spray-painted billboard that proclaims ‘HELL
IS REAL.’


i wanted to do something with roads/traveling, because Raylan and Boyd have a great history, involving a lot of twists and turns and miles. the main image is actually KY State Highway 119, which runs from Harlan to Cumberland. the font is the same used on US Highway road signs, called "Highway Gothic." i would apologize for my fondness for the blood splatter effect but hey, it's a zombie story. also i think it's cool :|

art things this way!Collapse )

Wishlist 2012, Prompt Post

What is the Wishlist?

The Wishlist is a multi-fandom Christmas fanfiction fest. It is something that started very small and simple three years ago. The premise was simply to write twenty-four ficlets in response to twenty-four prompts, posted between 1 Dec and 24 Dec. Fandom gifts, if you will. Since then it's grown and changed a bit.

The community and the rules in detail can be found here.

I have signed up to be a writer and an artist, and if you want to give me a prompt, please leave a comment on this entry.

Rules

- I accept the first 6 and 6 prompts I am given, regardless of who you are or if I know you. I'm doing 6 prompts for fic, and 6 for art.

- You give me characters/pairing, a fandom and a prompt.

- If you want art, please give me a story, scene or fandom you would like me to create art for. Please provide a link. the art mediums i am offering are a fanmix with graphics, or graphics just in general. i also love doing photography/graphic combinations so feel free to request that for a story or a particular line of fic and i'll see what i can do. i can't draw to save my life, so illustrating specific scenes may possibly lead to me interpreting it in a strange way and presenting unto you something with an instagram filter and a script font. just sayin'.

- my only fandom currently is Justified.

- If I find your prompt in any way offensive, I will disregard it, too. Fair warning. i don't find things offensive :D

- Your prompts should somewhat match what I usually write/draw. It can be a quote, an idea, a specific situation, but the more you give me, the more I have to work with. Throwing Character X/Character Y, whatever at me is going to get you whatever.

- If you don't have an lj account, leave an anonymous comment, but make sure to sign it with a name (possibly your TtH name, if you're coming from that end.) i copied this prompt post verbatim and i don't know what TtH is >>

- I answer the prompts in the order I like best* and post them here and/or in the wishlist_fic community, one a day, starting 1 Dec 2012.

*or the order i get things done, which is up to my usual magpie-like attention span.

Again, I need fandom, characters or pairings, prompt, and your name, or, for an art prompt fandom, a scene or story, and your name.


:D? :D?

title: i got echoes in my head
author: someotherstorm
fandom: justified (vaguely future-ish)
pairing: raylan/boyd
rating: MA
content advisory: off-screen (off-story?) violence, biting
word count: 1400
summary: Raylan thinks he comes here for things he needs, not things he wants. He never wants to admit they’re the same thing.

AN: written for norgbelulah, because she's a darling and should have nice things, so hopefully this is a nice thing! <333 title/cut tag from Dwight Yokam's a thousand miles from nowhere.

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere, time don't matter to me.Collapse )

title: there’s a devil waiting outside your door
author: someotherstorm
fandom: justified (set in season 3, late-ish, after the events of 3X04, “The Devil You Know” )
pairing: raylan/boyd
rating: MA
content advisory: gunplay (with a loaded gun), whipping
word count: ~7000
summary: Boyd shows up at Raylan's apartment, seeking absolution in Raylan's anger.

AN: thanks so much to norgbelulah for reading this over for me, and for the cheerleading and the help when i stumbled into a canon error and had to do a bit of re-working! any errors are most certainly my own <3 song title from loverman by Nick Cave.

Raylan tells himself it’s his duty to the law to see what Boyd Crowder may confess, but he’s not entirely sure that’s the obligation that has him stepping aside and letting Boyd into his apartment.Collapse )
