for kradambigbang - art for Diptych by Samanthahirr (Kradam/NC17)  


Fic title & link: Diptych [or here at AO3]
Author: samanthahirr
Artist: katekat1010
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 42,000~
Summary:

Adam Lambert may not have stolen the Matheron Diptych, but he's about to sell it on the black market for a nice profit. He's not going to let an FBI investigation get in his way...if he can just shake the agent who's shadowing his every move.

Special Agent Kris Allen has been watching Adam for weeks. But is Kris planning to arrest the glamorous art fence and retrieve the diptych? Or does he want more from Adam than just stolen merchandise?

When Kris saves Adam’s life, the line blurs between Fed and criminal. But while Kris melts at Adam's touch, someone far more dangerous is searching for the diptych…

Oh my HEART!
I can't believe you made so much INCREDIBLE art for my fic! When you claimed my prompt, I told you it felt like Christmas, but this is three Christmases and two birthdays rolled up in one! You've spoiled me, Honey, and I can't imagine any other art with this fic. You really made some of the scenes come alive, and I know the readers will be amazed by EVERYTHING you produced. (And they don't even know how obscenely busy you've been, what with the whole MOVING TO JAPAN FOR AN INTENSIVE LANGUAGE PROGRAM last month! How did you DO THIS?!)

And damn, seeing all those chapter headers all grouped together makes me love them even MORE. They're so graceful and lovely and PERFECT for the story! I've already gushed at you via e-mail about the individual pieces, and will surely continue to do so for months. You're the BEST and my FAVORITE and I will shout your name from the Heavens!

Re: Oh my HEART!
THANK YOU! FOR WRITING SUCH AN AWESOME STORY THAT IT LITERALLY PICKED MY BRAIN UP BY THE STEM AND SHOOK IT until all this stuff came out. And thank you too for being so delighted every time I threw stuff at you, and for seeing things in the images that I was going for - you know how you told me about the progression? THAT IS EXACTLY EXACTLY EXACTLY what I was trying to do with it, and it made me so fucking happy that you *got* it that it just made me want to try harder and make more pretties to do everything justice. I almost peed my pants getting to see everything together at one time, too, because honestly? BEST COMPLIMENT EVER is knowing that you wanted to put it into and around the text. I feel spoiled too, by this fic and our relationship lady. I dunno if I'll ever be able to top this because i have no idea if another fic is ever going to come along and be as wonderfully challenging and awesome as this one is! Thank YOU for writing it!!! And for all of the love -s eriously, that is what makes doing this stuff worthwhile, is knowing I could make you even slightly as happy as getting to read your fic (and other fic in the past, and don't think i don't still have Covington out there on my fantasy to do list) has made me.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ right back atcha BB!!

thanks so much bb! though i can't take much credit for the dividers since they're just adaptations of actual artists (Monet, Degas, Van Gogh)

OH MY GOD, YOU'RE BRILLIANT!

I mean, what did we do to deserve this fantastic fic and this downright amazing art?! I'm not kidding, I haven't been able to stop staring since I opened this post 10 minutes ago.

And you made a Brad panel! And that makes you a goddess, OK? :P

So excuse me while I stare once again *________*

Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing feedback! I know we get so used to seeing the same images all the time of the boys, and there are reasons why (they do look great in them) but I'm glad you felt like I brought something new to them too (it was so what i was going for!). you totally made my day!
Catalmcatalm on July 23rd, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC)

Thank you so much bb! It was definitely a labor of love, but worth it with this fic as the inspiration!

I have no idea what this is but your work is fabulous. Every single time you outdo yourself. These are stunning.

Thanks so much lady!! And it's American Idol RPS fandom (which may not actually give you clues, lol) But Samanthahirr's fic pinged something in the back of my head and all of this just poured out. I'm so glad you like!!
