Winchester Paper Trail #3: Found on a Sleep Cheep Beside Table  
The Winchester Paper Trail returns! hiyacunien present "Found on a Sleep Cheep Bedside Table," brought to you by the craziness that was both of our Decembers.

I have to bow and scrape at cunien's feet more than usual because she definitely did the heavy lifting on this one. Me, I was like, "Scraps of paper! Clues! Easy!" and typed away, leaving her to do all the hard stuff :-)

As usual, words by me, art and layout by cunien. This one's actually a companion piece to my story Inventory, which I posted last month.

OMG, you guys totally rock! I just love this stuff, it's so original and different, makes me laugh every freakin' time. Love the parking violation notice and Sam's note to Dean!

When you've slept it/her off, I'll come pick you up. Check-out's at 3:00. Move your ass.

Sleep "it" off?! ROTFLMAO!!! Priceless!

Lol! Wow, that wasn't what I meant, I swear! In my brain, Sam wasn't sure whether Dean was sleeping off a busy night with a lot of beer and chasers, or a busy night with the waitress... Your way is so much dirtier, and I'm sort of ashamed I didn't think of it!

So glad you like our shared madness! Thanks for the note!

And I forgot to mention that the visual part of it is fabulous! Very nice work, ladies! :-)

'And I forgot to mention that the visual part of it is fabulous!'

Why thankyou, ma'am! Mainly I know we're both just glad we're not the only ones that find this sort of thing amusing. Not that it'd stop us, even if we were. :)

Oh my god. I actually saw this first through email, but had to tell you in public how brilliant it is. I love that they have a card from a Sanskrit expert and they've made an APPOINTMENT with him. And all the girls' phone numbers--but most of all, I love Sam's note to Dean. It's possible that the first time I read it, I was sitting in a semi-public place, and I squealed so loudly I got some looks. "Call when you've slept it/her off AND I'LL COME PICK YOU UP." They're so cute and almost domestic! And wow, how brilliant is Mima for making this look so beautiful.

You two are awesome. Never stop.
hiyacynth: SPN: Dean + Impala = OTPhiyacynth on January 12th, 2007 04:59 am (UTC)
Our fingers are all firmly crossed that we will never stop. It's too much fun!

Isn't Mima amazing? It frightens me, really. When we came up with the idea and I started picking out the various components and trying to picture them, individually and together, and I couldn't quite do it. And then she showed me this, and it was like she'd had the key to the part of my brain where it was stored, and I knew it was THIS all along.

Sigh. Braintwins are love.

hee :)
you two are way too talented. Sam's note is definitely the best.

:-) Thank you! I fear for the AWESOME we would unleash on the world if we were ever able to arrange to be in the same place at the same time.

Thanks! cunien never ceases to amaze me.

Ha! Yeap, that's the sort of effluvia our boys would leave behind. The condom and the parking ticket are two of my favorite touches, along w/ Sam's note, of course. ;-)

Their post-its look like the post-its on my desk!

The maids who clean up after them must always be so confused.

I kinda love the parking ticket myself :-)
Alcibiades: goodnight mother goodnightyjudaes on January 11th, 2007 11:04 pm (UTC)
this is so awesome and adorable; as a bunch of other people have said, i love all the little touches and how everything's sort of strewn about. and...eeee, i love that they're staying in Erie. my dad is from Northeastern Ohio - Conneaut, which is about 30 minutes from Erie, and i always found that whole area a little bit creepy because it's so dead now that the docks and shipping business have become less important. anyway, excuse my rambling, this is great.
hiyacynth: SPN: Dean: Hamlethiyacynth on January 12th, 2007 05:08 am (UTC)
Hee, I chose Erie because I have an author (I work for an educational publisher) who teaches there, and I was feeling nice about her that week. Plus, cool name and lots of old abandoned industrial stuff, as you said.

Glad you were amused!

This is so fantastic. Fictional ephemera is probably my biggest art kink, and you guys ROCK IT. Have I told you that before? Because you do. With the wrinkles and the arrows and the lipstick and the post-its and the citations and the death certificates and I'm FLAILING HERE.

Thankyou! So glad you like. Yeah, we love this sort of stuff too. I think it says a lot about the...ahem...'inquiring minds' of the fandom that we are all happy to spend a good deal of time pouring over parking tickets and death certificates. lol. I know that hiyacynth has a ball coming up with all the ideas and I certainly get a peculiar amount of enjoyment out of putting in said wrinkles and lipstick kisses and post-its. :D

Thanks! We certainly hope we'll be able to keep it up. So much fun, honestly.

*is in shock*
How could someone give the IMPALA a parking violation?
This series is AWESOME!!!
*goes to read more*
hiyacynth: SPN: Impala = sexhiyacynth on February 13th, 2009 02:47 pm (UTC)
Hee! So much fun to see you laughing at these--makes me revisit them myself.

Some people are so sadly lacking in awesome they can't even detect the aura of awesome permanently surrounding the Impala, and therefore insist on giving it parking tickets. It's pathetic :-)

Thanks for reading and commenting!
