Thank You

Thank you to all the wonderful writers, artists, betas, and readers who celebrated Ruby 2.0/Gen with us these past three years. We have had an amazing time modding this comm for the last two, but due to RL busyness and moving into other fandoms, we will not be able to organize a fourth round this spring. If anyone would like to take over as mod, please PM or email us at genteensybang[at]yahoo[dot]com.

If you're still looking for an excuse to write Ruby 2.0 or Gen, we also wanted to point you toward Rare Pair Big Bang on Tumblr. We are not involved in this Bang, so we can't speak to it, but hopefully it will be fun and a big success. Writer sign-ups close tomorrow, November 29th, but artist sign-ups are open until Claims are complete (starting January 16th).

Lastly, we wanted to leave you with this adorable picture of the Padalecki family's 2015 Halloween costumes, in case anyone hadn't seen it yet. Gen makes for an awesome Astrid, no?

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this community! We couldn't have hoped for more creative and inspired fics and art!

Title: Beautiful Neighborhood
Author: amberdreams
Artist: chomaisky
Pairing : Genevieve & Jared
Rating: R
Genre: RPF AU romance
Word Count: c9800
Warnings: There be no porn here, folks.

Summary: Set in Dark Angel verse.
Genevieve moves to an apartment in Seattle to take her dream job with KIPH TV. Her neighbours seem okay if a little weird. The one who interests her the most is Jared, but after several conversations via the dumb waiter shaft, Gen still hasn’t met him face to face.
Jared is a transgenic with too much tiger in his mix.  He firmly believes he’s a freak, no matter what his flatmate and fellow transgenic Jensen tells him. But then Gen moves into the apartment above theirs, and starts chipping away at his defenses. After a few days, Jared decides to ask Jensen to pretend to be him, so he can woo Genevieve by proxy. It is, of course, a stupid idea. 

A/N: Thank you to dollarformyname for a sterling beta, making sure my DA verse was shipshape as well as sorting out my SPAG errors and general senselessness.

How To Post (Teensily)

Only a few days left until April 27th! Who's excited?

Here are the posting guidelines (same as in previous rounds) so you can share your fantastic fic and amazing art with the comm:

How to Post (Teensily)

Step 1: Talk to your partner!

It doesn't matter who makes the post to the comm, but one of you must, and when you post to the comm, the links to fic and art must be live. If the mods can't click through to the fic and art, they won't accept the submission. This means that author and artist must both post their works to their personal journals/sites/AO3, etc. before someone submits the comm post to the mods. Coordination is probably required.

Step 2: Use the posting template! Remember to make the art posted to the comm no larger than 400x400.

Step 3: Submit your post!

You may post whenever it's your posting day in some part of the world. Mods will approve posts, so there might be a delay between submission and approval.

If you cannot make your posting date (see the schedule here) or run into trouble on your posting dates, please let the mods know as soon as possible! We can't help you if we don't know there's a problem. If you have any additional questions, PM the mods or email genteensybang [AT] yahoo [DOT] com.

Step 4: Kick back and relax!

Read some teensy fic! View some teensy art! Crosspost your own at will! Feel good about yourself! YOU DID IT.
