My story was about one of my fave couples, Clint and Natasha of the MCU. 'Betting on You', by Cassandra S Fisher, can be found HERE, and the couplesbigbang LJ community - if you want to join in next round - can be found HERE
I was really taken with the 'betting' part of the title, so I knew right away I wanted to play with the gambling concept. I do wish I'd found a more complete picture of the gun though, to symbolise Russian roulette; not only as a way of not only illustrating the gambling metaphor, but also the stakes Clint and Natasha are playing for - not only their love, but their lives.
I wanted to do a contrast of either a black and white background with colour pictures to stand out boldly, or the other way around. I couldn't make out my mind, so I did both!
