Not An Ounce of Peace: Notes  
Part Five

Contains spoilers for the fic.

Not An Ounce of Peace, first and foremost, has been a labor of love. I started off writing one fic and the result here is something completely different. For the first 5, 000 words and month or so, I was writing a fic where Sam and Dean were cursed to fall in love. Then, I watched the February episodes of Supernatural and realised that that wasn't my Big Bang at all. I forged ahead and suddenly I was writing a story about the apocalypse, not a relationship.

This wouldn't have been written as well as it was (and it would definitely have more spelling errors) if it weren't for my awesome betas, somnolentblue and gblvr. They were both impossibly awesome and helpful, especially when I was in my first editing stages.

Things of note, that could probably be construed as spoilers for the story: all Bible quotes are from the Douay-Rheims translation. My concept of God and Lucifer is pulled from the Book of Job. The apocalyptic happenings come primarily from the Book of Daniel, though I do draw on other books of the prophets. The final seal is from the Book of Revelation.

I'm also going to thank wendy, thehighwaywoman, and audrarose for organising the whole spn_j2_bigbang. Everyone at omgspnbigbang was amazingly supportive, even when I was going crazy because my story took a U-turn. And, of course, thanks to deanbottoms for letting me know that I would be able to finish this and being my cheerleaders.

thandie was a great artist to work with for this, especially as I've never worked with an artist before now. If you haven't already checked out her amazing work, she made a great fanmix soundtrack for Not An Ounce of Peace in addition to illustrating it. Check them out here.

You already know I love this story so much, and it's been fun 'working' with you :)

Your stuff is awesome. I absolutely adore the mix you made. It's more perfect than anything I could have done.

I'm so sorry I ended up doing a lot less than what I had hoped for, but I'm grateful and happy you appreciated what I did! You rock. ♥
