What's the concept ?

During the year 2011, I will post one drawing a month (alongside other arts, this won't be my only project) all inspired by a fan fiction. (To cut a long story short, it is going to be one month, one drawing, one calendar wallpaper). It's a way to pay tribute to all the authors and stories I enjoyed in the past few years.

What about the fic ?

Here is everything you need to know about this absolutely heart-breaking fic by Miss lustmordred . Prepare your handkerchief, you're gonna need it...

Title: A Bleak Understanding in Reverse PART 1 - PART 2
Author: lustmordred 
Genre: Spn
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Warnings/Spoilers: Incest, language, character death
Word Count: Lustmordred didn't precise but my PDF is about 30 pages (Verdana - 12pt)

Summary: It was hard to imagine that life without monsters could still kill them...

This fic is for...

People who aren't allergic to death fic, who love drama, and tears.

This fic is definitely not for...(SPOILER, highlight if you want to know)

Those who expect Castiel to appear in the middle of the fic to save Sam at the last minute and to see Sam and Dean living happily ever afters and choosing together a sofa or a lamp at Ikea. Don't wait for a crossroad demon either...

What about your drawing ?

In A Bleak Understanding in Reverse, Sam is dying from a brain tumor (it's not a spoiler, we learn it at the second page of the story). I wanted to show he was leaving this world a little bit more every day, hence his silhouette disintegrating in Dean's arms. 

Tools of the trade ?

Photoshop CS + Painter Essential 3

Was it the first version?


Not really, the first sketch was definitely darker and much more morbid. It included skulls, drugs, brambles, and some quotes from the fic. Finally, I dropped. It's depressing enough to have a dying Sam as a wallpaper, no need to add skulls and blood stains.  In addition, there were too many details: it's a wallpaper, I needed to leave some blank spaces so that the users can see their icons.



Reference photos : Sam - Dean

Next wallpaper ?

At the end of March if I can. I am currently living in Tokyo and I am leaving for good at the end of March to go back to Paris, my hometown. I hope I will have the time to draw the wallpaper and to find an Internet connection to post it.

Other wallpapers available?

January (The Doors Of Time - Felisblanco), February (Small Small World - Dragonspell)


Hope you liked the calendar!

Ach. This is heartbreaking. That doesn't mean I won't put it on my desktop. ;-) It's so beautiful. But it makes me feel...like crying.
petite_madamepetite_madame on March 1st, 2011 02:37 pm (UTC)
I agree, this fic isn't what can be called a "fun fic" but unlike a big part of this fandom, I am not allergic to death fic ^^;;
Thanks a lot for the great comment An ♥

Don't tell me about it!! I am packing, packing, packing and packing again -____- It's boring as hell...

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my (very sad) art ;)
I will try to draw something funnier next month ^^

Thanks for the wallpaper. I think I've read this fic. The spoiler you gave makes it sound like something I've read. I don't like reading death fic because I hate to cry, but I may have to read this one again. Lovely art, as usual, hon. Be safe on your move.
petite_madamepetite_madame on March 1st, 2011 02:41 pm (UTC)
I come from a fandom where the main actor died in almost all his movies (Sean Bean) so a death!fic for us isn't something that makes us really cry. It's like "Sean is dead, it must be Tuesday" XD
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art Kady ♥

I loved this fic, it was indeed heartbreaking and beautiful and your finished calendar picture brought tears to my eyes too - it captures that poignancy and sense of impending loss. I really like your sketched version though that is less moving and more nightmarish. I had a go at a wallpaper myself after reading the story but wasn't very happy with it - yours is so much better!! :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on March 1st, 2011 02:43 pm (UTC)
The sketch version had a little bit too many elements for a wallpaper. I had to leave some space for the calendar itself and for the user's icons :/ It it was just a usual fan art I would have gone for something with more details and darker.
The fic is really amazing, I understand why so liked it so much.
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

I haven't read the fic and I'm not sure if I will. Along the Road to Anywhere made me cry like a baby and there's no real character death. It's so much easier to make me cry with words than with pictures.

Your art is incredible though. When you look at Sam's face you can directly see what's happening.

If you are allergic to death!fics, just don't because you are really gonna cry ^^;; I come from a fandom where the main actor died in almost all his movies (Sean Bean) so a death!fic for us isn't something that makes us really cry. It's like "Sean is dead, it must be Tuesday" XD

Ah, "Along the Road to Anywhere"! I didn't have the time to read it yet but the drawings by Ordinaryinks were just fantastic! I must be an horrible person but I have nothing against sad fics and death!fics in particular ^^;;

Thanks a lot for the comment about my wallpaper ^^

I CAN'T SEE IT! :'(
Am I the only one having problems with the MU link? I downloaded the folder but its empty. :'(

Ok while I'm not into Wincest, your art is always incredible and so was that fic. Beautiful, haunting, it made me wanna bawl my eyes out.

I hope I can see th pic soon. :P

YOU ARE A GENIUS.

I just saw the wallpaper.
it was downloading when I posted my previous comment.
I'm crying.
I just can't-I won't read the fic, and no art has ever hit me so hard, but this...God, one look at Sam's face and I can't stop the tears.

also, in mind "Out from under" by Joanna Pacitti is playing in loop, I don't even know why.

http://www.4shared.com/audio/oN2uXzrB/Joanna_-_Out_From_Under.html here it is, in case you want to listen to it.

God, I can't even breathe right now.
petite_madamepetite_madame on March 1st, 2011 02:51 pm (UTC)
I really tried to draw Sam sick and on the verge of death, that's why this art is a little bit hard to bear for a lot of people. I understand why you won't read the fic. I come from a fandom where the main actor died in almost all his movies (Sean Bean) so a death!fic for us isn't something that makes us really cry. It's like "Sean is dead, it must be Tuesday" XD
I didn't know the song you sent me the link to! Thanks a lot :)

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥
Glad you liked it even if it was very sad :/

Oh WOW!! Beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time...is there any emotion you can't bring to a page? I love this, one of your best works *nods* Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us. *hugs*
petite_madamepetite_madame on March 1st, 2011 02:52 pm (UTC)

A sloppy kiss. I suck at drawing kisses (unfortunately). It drives me mad all the time :/

This is so heartbreakingly beautiful, I can't wait to use it as my desktop!
You really captured the atmosphere of the story!

The story was really difficult to put into a picture :/ I had a hard time choosing the right moment in the fic ^^;;

Oh god, the art alone is enough to bring tears to my eyes...I'm not even sure I dare to read the fic but...so gorgeous!
