I can't tell what the manip is supposed to be. There's Dean looking like Jensen, a beautiful blonde woman, a man wearing a hoodie partially obscuring his face, and fireworks and red things. I don't get it. I don't get the composition, or the colors or the characters or anything about it.

The artist also says they have not read the fic, and it seems they have no intention of reading it. I find that odd.

The fic has a fun concept. It starts with a familiar scene of Dean and Sam waking up in a hotel room, but something is off, Dean is feeling like crap, and suddenly some OFC is there. Dean responds to her with a mixture of familiarity and admiration and love, and yet the close 3rd person pov describes her as if she were a stranger.

I think that was a good idea for the hook, and I also enjoyed the way hunters_retreat plays with narration throughout the fic, showing the OFC to be all kinds of suspicious but telling the reader she is the awesomest ever to awesome, in a mantra like way.

Unfortunately, the fic suffers for not having had a grammar and structure editor cast a second eye on it. There are badly conjugated verbs, jarring tense changes, awkward sentences and awkward flow. The set-up is okay, but the plot develops too slowly, and the ending is rather abrupt.

The end result is a fic which doesn't mine even a tenth of the emotional potential in concept. It could have been emo porn of the highest order, but it's bland instead.

Hey, Jessica Biel! At least, I think it's Jessica Biel?

I'm kinda mesmerized by that busy reddish blob in the middle of the manip.

What is it? Why is there? What does it represent?

It's the brightest part of the whole banner, the eye is drawn to it, so what does it mean?

Sam's or Dean's?

Is that why Sam's leaving Dean, as implied by the fic's summary?

Sam pulls away because Dean's hemorrhoid problem is getting really bad (partly a result of Dean's long hours in a sitting position , greasy diet, and his fondness of frequent buttsex). Obviously Dean knows why, but he's too proud to visit a proctologist. It's so tragic, true love divided by the varicosities of the veins. ;_;

I'm not sure why it's red, but it's obviously "the space between" as the giant words say.

The artists have no control over what direction the authors choose, but I thought this would be used this for RPS, not Sam/Dean.

Not true. The artist's suggested pairing in the claims post reads "Dean/OFC; open to Dean/Sam angst and or threesome."

Manip is kind of weird, but then, manips aren't my thing.
