Hang on, angel by lily-fox Hang on, angel by lily-fox
Guys: this has NOTHING to do with the Supernatural tearjerker fic "Twist & Shout". I drew this before it was put out. I've never read it. Apparently you shouldn't either, unless you want to jam an oily switchblade into your gut and twist and sh-- OH, I JUST GOT IT.

Dean’s takin’ Cas on an escapade! Don’t even ask me about the bike. A mechanic would be like, What the fuck is even going on down there. I don’t know beans about that stuff, I just did my best.

I did this with like a 50’s college AU in mind, hence Castiel’s dorky All-Stars and Dean’s really boss cuffed jeans. They’re going down to the Union Hall to dance to some Little Richard! Or, I don't know, go make out in a cornfield or something.

Dean is a total pleasure to draw. He's a pleasure to behold, so. Myeah.

That ain't my affair. I'll never understand why people write shit that fucking depressing. What's the point? If I want to feel that bad, I'll just got snort some hot mustard.

I realize this isn't related to Twist and Shout...but it came up when I searched "Supernatural Twist and Shout," so I'm suspecting you put that in the tags...

It's not sad. It's kind of like an adventure romance. I've tried to kind of instil what the fans of spn love like action, fighting, chase scenes and good solid storylines and characters :)

At first glance I thought this was fan art for Twist and Shout and my eyes instantly welled up with tears, while a sound of love/sorrow/feels/asdfghjkl; came out of my mouth. It hit me right in the feels. This is an amazing picture though, im filled with happy tears

Can I ask you an honest question? Why would anyone want to read something like that? Why would you want to feel that bad? It's actually starting to tick me off that everyone sees this drawing and thinks "Twist & Shout". I resent that like the happiest, dancingest Beatles song ever played is now associated forever with this story that makes everyone want to carve their own hearts out.

None of this is judging people who like the story or anything like that, I just... I don't get it, man.

I'm late to the party and kind of random but whatever. It's actually a pretty good fic but above all that tragedy is not anything new to the fandom. Historically tragedies were seen as having a cathartic effect on "cleaning up" society. In the same way, you can view tragedies' effects on a personal level as "cleaning up" your insides. You cry and want to carve your heart out like you say but since it's not happening to you, you end up feeling lighter. They dig you all the way down, but when you realize on subconscious level that it's not happening to you, you end up feeling better for it. Furthermore, when a story ends up touching you on such a level, making you empathize so much with a character it's easy to be blinded by the experience offered to you and seek it out more. I'm not sure I'm making sense heh especially since this drawing of yours is so light hearted.

One time, years ago, I went through this gray period, where I just wasn't feeling much of anything. I didn't want to draw or write or laugh or any of that stuff, and it was sort of awful. Then my husband took me to see Letters From Iwo Jima in the theater, and it was like... A kick-start. I cried so hard I thought I was going to be sick and I had to leave and sit in the lobby for a while. I wouldn't go back and do it again, but I was glad it happened because it made me really feel again, even if it was grief. So I can understand how some people need that.

I think it's person to person, too. I avoid sad stories at all costs because I feel for the characters, and if they're grieving and I can't help them (because they're FICTIONAL), the hurt is even worse. I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way. I'm sure I'm not.

Nope you're definitely not. Like you said, tragedies are not for everyone but that's why there are comedies. If you're looking for the same cathartic effect, a hearty laugh is as good as a teary cry.

Okay, I've heard a lot about that fic, and I plan to stay away from it like it was contagious. Sounds like the saddest shit on the planet. Why's there always gotta be that one fic in every fandom that makes you want to throw yourself off a bridge? Fuck that noise, man.

But I'm glad you like this. :D Something to ice the wound after reading that, maybe.

I seriously resent stories/movies like that. Ain't no reason for that shit. Who the hell needs fanfic so sad that it hangs around your shoulders like a fucking lead apron for days and days? Shit is unacceptable, I'm just saying. But then, I have this grotesque fear of sadness, so. Maybe there are some people who like feeling that way.

Aww, well! C: Ha ha, fancy meeting you in the SPN fandom, huh?

This is too sweet. I'm sure they'll be on their way to get a malted soon enough. Is it weird that I'm totally in love with Dean's boots here?

This is getting me really excited about SPN stuffs! My honey is planning a Destiel fan-comic soon. :'>

Heh, Dean's gonna show off his boyfriend around town. And thanks! The boots I stole from an actual photo of a dude from the 50's on a bike.

And I LITERALLY FLAILED when I read that. A Destiel fan comic??!? Oh god, I'm salivating...

YES! She's had to put it off because of SDCC and PAX, but she's going to be able to work on it pretty soon. We'll probably sell it on Etsy or StorEnvy!

This is really nice, and Cas was instantly recognizable... but it took me a minute to realize the other was Dean. I don't think his features match up with Jensen's as you drew them here, as much as your Cas drawings match up to Misha's face. Just an observation, again this is really nice. I'd love to see more Dean drawings from you. : )

lily-fox Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
Dude, I thought it was WAY way in the opposite direction, like my Dean was pretty on, but my Cas was way off! :D I guess that just shows how skewed things can look to different people? But it makes me super happy that Cas was recognizable, because I worried about that. My first drawing of somebody is usually off. I need more practice. :)

This is embarrassing but before I saw the full image (ie when I just saw the thumbnail in my alert box) I thought it was Glee fanart, and that Cas was Kurt and Dean was probably Blaine.

Upon fullview it was obvious this was SPN fanart, and I recognized Cas right away. But yeah, Dean just looks a little off- although I can definitely see the features of his you were 'recognizing' as you drew this, and the drawing is altogether great.

I definitely hope you share your practice! ; D
