These last couple of weeks I have been very distracted by this annoying thing called real life, that’s why I am so behind with my reviews for the S6 finale. I am still working on them, so I thought that in the meantime I'd post a couple of icons that have been lying around on my computer. A while ago I started an icon collection about casual touches between the brothers. You know, touches that are meant to be comforting, reassuring or supportive, playful touches, touches with the simple intent to guide or direct - touches that (mostly) happen outside the context of Sam or Dean being injured. Often these touches are too fleeting to be caught in a screencap, that’s why I didn’t get far with my collection, but here is what I have gathered so far. :)
I know I have been MIA these last few weeks and some of you may wonder if they will ever get to read my episode reviews for Two Minutes To Midnight and Swan Song or if they will ever get to see the result of their fanart requests – or any new fanart from me for that matter. Now, here’s the thing: After the S5 finale I really needed a break from the intense focus on Supernatural and so I threw myself into non-fandom related activities for a while. Then, just when I was ready to resume writing/arting about SPN, I was unexectedly offered a new job, and I decided to take it, mainly for financial reasons. As some of you know, I have been working part-time these last couple of years, which obviously left me plenty of time to pursue my fandom activities and spend days on long-winded episode reviews or wallpapers.
My new job, however, is a full-time employment and at the moment I am not only overwhelmed by the amount of new content I have to learn, but also by the immense changes in my personal time management. So, that’s why there has been so little activity at my journal lately. I hope that I will get into a routine at my new job fast enough to at least finish my outstanding reviews and some art during the hiatus, but most importantly I hope that I will be able to keep up my reviews when S6 starts to air. At the moment I am not sure I will manage that though – at least not in that much detail. Only time will tell, I guess.
Just before all hell broke loose in my life, I managed to finish one wallpaper, so I thought I at least post that one as a consolation. :)

Folks, I am so sorry the fulfilment of the art requests is going so slow, but I had a serious art block these last couple of weeks. I feel incredibly guilty that you all have to wait so long for your wallpapers. But hey, at least the unfinished requests force me to open Photoshop and try to get something done, instead of just wallowing in self-pity. Anyway, two days back I finally had a good, and most importantly a viable, idea for naisica’s request, so here it is. Enjoy!

I am surprised to hear me say this, but I actually miss the show. Can we have new episodes, please? Also, I have the odd urge to do a S3 marathon, which doesn’t happen all that often, so I guess I’ll take the opportunity to do just that this weekend! Anyway, at least the hiatus leaves me time for art, so I finished another request, this time for uglybusiness.
Six down, only five to go. Thank you all for your patience!

I have to apologise for the delay with the art requests, but review writing took up a considerable part of my time these last couple of weeks. Add to that computer troubles and RL projects and you get the picture. I hope I manage to finish all requests before this hiatus is over though. *crosses fingers*
So, today I drop off the gifts for marilyne_22 and joans23. :)
