SPN Big Bang 2010!  
SO. biancathecookie wrote a fabulous story. And in her summary, there was J2 smack dab in the Chuck!verse. How could I possibly resist?

Please Hold (Our Technicians Will Be Right With You) by biancathecookie
Genre: AU RPS
Pairing: J2, Sophia Bush/Tom Welling
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~22,150
Warnings/Spoilers: AU based on the TV show Chuck, so random spoilers for season 1.
Summary: Jared was twenty-five and living with his sister and her live-in boyfriend; his best friend from elementary school, Chad, lived down the street and he's working at a Buy More. Barring drugs or hookers, Jared's pretty sure this is what rock bottom looks like. Then, his ex-BFF sent him an encrypted file and now he has a computer in his brain, bad guys chasing him, friends returning from the dead, and oh yeah- a super sexy CIA handler he can't get out of his head.

(Photoshop crashed hard as I was creating 1280x1024 wallpaper, but if that size would work better for anyone, just drop me a line in the comments!)




And then I was all, "Do you have a soundtrack? Shall I make a CD cover?" And she was all "!!!" (Seriously, I just want to smish her).
And then this happened:

Thank you to the lovely mods, without whose crazy energy and love there would not be this fantastic challenge to keep us entertained through the lonely summer months.

I had so much fun working on ideas to illustrate biancathecookie's story, and I hope y'all have just as much fun as I did reading it. Today's the first day of the posting schedule for the next 3 months or so, be sure to check it out!

This is very well done. Every choice you made goes so well with the tone of the story. Love the label style font. Where did you find that?
vorpal pen: art is hard (by raelala)vorpal_pen on June 9th, 2010 02:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! That font is 'Impact Label' and 'Impact Label Reversed' by mtension, and you can find it here at dafont.com. I was also reccomended 'FF Dynamoe' if you're looking for similar fonts, but 'Impact Label' has the advantage of being free. :D

EEE!
These are so so good! <3 And I want to read the story even more now that I've seen this. I love the first one especially, but the Cd Covers are great too! Really good work! ^__^

I really like the wallpapers you made and the effect of the images taking a part/being a part of Chuck!Jared. I dig your soundtrack art as well and the soundtrack! Which I shall be snagging and listening to while reading! Thank you! :)

Thank you! biancathecookie did a great job creating the soundtrack, it was so much fun to listen to as I was creating the cover! I've pretty much had it on repeat for the past four days.

Oooh, I've always loved the look of the Chuck credits and I love what you did with it - especially the fanmix back cover.
vorpal pen: MDMN_jazz hands!vorpal_pen on June 9th, 2010 03:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I think the back cover is my favorite, too. It was really fun playing around with all the elements, I didn't even notice how much time flew by! I somehow managed to not save it in layers as a .psd file, and I'm still super bummed about that.

Wooow, Awesome.

Jared' solo image, is genial.

It's... simply great!

This is great. I really like the idea of the second wallpaper. But my fav has to be the soundtrack cover and back. Good job!

Thank you!
odysseaia: {spn} fangirlsodysseaia on June 8th, 2010 04:53 pm (UTC)
This is such a brilliant idea. Very creative and wonderfully done. My personal favorite is the picture where little pictures break out of Jared, leaving him with little picture-shaped holes. I can't even being to imagine how much work that must have been. Simply beautiful! :)
vorpal pen: So Excited! (by raelala)vorpal_pen on June 9th, 2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks muchly! It was definitely one of those projects where I settled in at the computer after getting home from school and/or work at 10-11pm, and the next thing I'd realize is the sun was coming up. Oops!

Oh wow, this is all really really good! :D

I especially love the main banner. Everything is so well put together and the soundtrack is amazing ♥

Thank you! biancathecookie's soundtrack is super fantastic, much like her fic! :)
