I mean I was planning on reccing it when I got to a hundred words in, but there's an Importance of Being Earnest reference being made, and I cracked.
It's like, space noir, only funnier. And with J2. So go, read. Now.
Jared/Jensen high-school aged AU,
Rated and warnings: R, for mentions of abuse, bad language and mild description of a panic attack.
Disclaimer: Anyone you recognise is not mine, they never were.
A/N: Written for expectative over at the spnspringfling challenge, with the prompt: leave tonight or live and die this way. This is not my first J2 ever to be written. It is, however, the first J2 to be completed and posted anywhere. This calls for celebration I think.
( Starting from Zero )
For mangacat201 and spn_reversebang
Warnings: Slight horror themes, some bad language.
Summary: Lucifer has risen, along with the horsemen. But a year and a half later, the final battle still hasn’t come to fruition and the demons have disappeared completely. Sam and Dean are leading a compound and not talking about the abilities they both possess, but when Castiel goes missing, it’s time for them to get back on the road, back to their life and back into the war.
You can check out Cat's amazing trailer here :)
( The Time is Near. )
( Author's notes. )
Sam, Dean, various OC's.
Disclaimer: Anything recognisable is not mine in the least.
A/N: A whole hell of a lot of months ago, paxlux asked for fic based on a picture. So I wrote it. Title from Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
Summary: Nobody’s sure how it started, can’t quite recall whether or not there was a man with a glint in his eye and a gas can in his hands, but it’s not long after that the motel closes down, the owner packs his bags and moves away, and this stretch of highway is avoided. Even less time after that the local council approves the development of a bypass, and now you only drive down that stretch of old highway if you haven’t heard the stories. So listen up.
( a little walk to the edge of town )
Sam, Dean, OFC, Wee!chester.
Disclaimer: Anything recognisable does not belong to me.
A/N: To celebrate my birthday, I'm posting fic. Enjoy.
Summary: December Jones sits on the front porch, chalk in one hand and paper doll in the other. Inside, the television blares midday self-help programs but no one listens. Chalk dust kisses the wood and blankets her fingers, pale pink, blue, yellow and white. It’s wedged under her nails and she doesn’t think it’ll ever come out. Across the road, the house come alive, breathes light and bright and a boy waves at her from the passenger door of a big black car.
( January Sun. )
Comments are always appreciated :)
I come bearing a recommendation.
This story was written ages ago for the apocabigbang and has been sitting in my "need to read" folder for just as long. I finally got around to it tonight and all I can say is WOW.
Beautiful and somewhat grotesque (it is the apocalypse) and vivid, the reveals are all just astounding and it's incredible how tabaqui weaved the season 4 (and 5) mytharcs into this new world. It feels so real, so natural, like this is exactly how it should happen from here on out and the events unfold so fluidly it feels like the reading time just passes you by. It's mostly gen, for those that do not read slash, but there is a bed sharing moment and later a small kiss moment between Sam and Dean that is more brotherly than anything else.
Comes to Dust - Tabaqui.
There isn't a masterpost, so the link takes you to the first of three parts.
Very Bad Language.
Set during S3
A/N: Inspired by the line "get some sleep Sammy" and the song I'll stand by you. I'm still not sure how it happened since this really has nothing to do with the song at all. The song came on, this popped into my head and I had to get my friend to pull the car over so I could get my notebook out of the back.
Disclaimer: Anything recognisable is very evidently NOT mine to own.
Summary: I’m going to do everything I can to keep you safe. And that includes getting ancient letters magically scripted into your ass.
( The Impala Chronicles: Or, Why Dean's An Awesome Brother And Got Those Damn Runes Tattooed On Sam In The First Place. )
Dean centric with OMC, Dean/Sam (implied)
Warnings: Slash themes, serial killer tendencies.
Notes: For spn_30snapshots, prompt blood. A kind of prequel to What You Do Best.
Summary: See, Dean likes girls and guns- so taking a knife to a guy is a little out of his element. But, he'll do it anyway, 'cause he's gotta teach Sam a lesson after all.
( Stop it, Now )
Warnings: Mentions of murder, suicide and paedophilia, implied abortion.
A/N: Written for the Notebook In Hand competition for the prompt Ten. Was meant to be between 200 and 2000 words (not exceeding), but I didn't make the deadline (so didn't submit), and kind of luckily, because I went over the limit.
A/N2: Inspired by The Keeper by Sarah Langan and Franz Kafka's writing, in particular The Metamorphosis. This is without a doubt the most horrid and creepy thing I've ever written.
Summary: The whisper echoes inside her mind. Never let the secrets go. It's the most important thing she'll ever learn.
( Ten Little Children. )
Sam and Dean, gen, preseries (teenage).
1000 words (exactly)
Disclaimer: Not mine, just playing in an existing sandpit.
Summary: Not every day's an adventure. Sometimes, it's just them in the front yard waiting for the storm to roll in.
( Southern Summer Rain. )
Wow. Thank God Christmas is over. :)
So the first thing that needs to happen is that more people should visit, and use thenicestthings because it's made of happiness and love.
Next, I have a bunch of recs. These are all from my favourites folder (which continuously needs to be re-evaluated and edited every few months because of the sheer amount of awesome fiction floating around) and consistently survive the favourites re-evaluations. So basically, they're good.
Some of these are sitting in the links bar of my journal, but I'm going to mention them again anyway.
Dangling on a string. Gen, R. By legoline. It's been two years since Dean and Sam disappeared. When Ellen, Jo and Bobby find the brothers they're beaten, broken and perhaps, beyond hope.
Dark and angsty, this 9000+ fic was the very first Supernatural fic I ever saved.
Same Time Next Year. Gen, Pg-13. By apreludetoanend. Pilot AU. Some things never change. When Dad goes missing, Dean comes for Sam.
A heartbreaking twist at the end.
A Bleak Understanding in Reverse. Sam/Dean, NC-17. By lustmordred. It was hard to imagine that life without monsters could still kill them...
Oh. My. God. I cry every time I read this.
What the Dormouse Said. Gen, Adult. By bellatemple. Pre-series. Dean's sky is falling.
Dean inadvertently goes on a bit of a bad drug trip. With (mostly) amusing results.
Can't (But I Can). Gen, PG. By neppie. Just because you can’t hear, doesn’t mean you can’t. Sam has always been deaf and Dean has always been a little stupid.
Gorgeous and emotional, Neppie's deaf!Sam series (there's currently three, and I'm hoping for a million more) is just beautiful.
Powerful Men. Harry/Minister of Magic (implied Draco), R. By frayach. The Battle of Hogwarts was lost, but after ten years of tyranny and terror, Harry Potter has finally defeated Voldemort. Slowly, those who suffered the most under Voldemort’s reign emerge from their enslavement. New friendships are kindled, laughter shared, and secrets spoken, and all the while a bell tolls. The final message from one man to another, whose deepest secret only now does he understand.
One of the most amazing HP fics I've ever read, the voice and tone and general idea of it ended up inspiring (albeit several years later) my own fic.
OFC, Sam/Dean (Mild though).
Warnings for bad language, slash themes and psychosis. And character death, but not major.
Disclaimer: Not mine, cept for the girl.
A/N: Title from Val McDermid's The Torment of Others, which is part of the Tony Hill Series of books in which The Mermaids Singing is the first. And yes, that's where I picked my prompt from. Title essentially from this: And then you'll be back out there, doing what you've discovered you do best. Kiling women.
A/N 2: I'm still not entirely happy with it.
A/N 3: I'm terribly terrible with author's notes. But I wanted to mention that originally, this one came after two other stories that I suppose, were going to be a serial killer 'verse kind of thing. But this one, despite my posting plans, is the only one that's even remotely ready to be posted, and I was kind of sick of hanging on to it while waiting for the other two to be done. So it's coming out first.
Summary: Dean likes the girls- a lot. Sam just likes watching Dean have his fun.
( What You Do Best. )
Gen AU/ R.
Warnings for temporary character death and foul language.
Disclaimer: only the original character is mine. wishful thinking does not create ownership.
Author’s notes: Finally finished after what I think has been a year. An interruption to “flow” triggered a severe writer’s block on the character, and I hope it doesn’t show through because there was a time there that the voice was very much dissociated from the original. I began writing it just after episode 4.10 aired, thus the mention of deceased characters as if they were still around- and character’s alliances. I didn’t feel it would work if I eliminated characters because of their canon demise, and similarly with location differences in regards to the final seal. So it’s very much AU.
A/N 2: The title is from Revelations- the 144,000 people were servants of God from the twelve tribes of Israel, and were protected from the destruction of the earth by a seal marked on their foreheads.
A/N 3: Regarding grammar and spelling. The blatant misuse of correct spelling and grammar in some places is necessary for the character's voice, but if something really isn't right beyond that please let me know.
Summary: Where was I? Ah right, we're all going batshit crazy in the same house 'cause we lived through the end of days. An Outsider’s point of view on the apocalypse, the Winchesters, and how one night of death can make all the difference in surviving.
For snapshot challenge: Prompt: myth
Pre-series and Pilot.
Notes: This was going to be a highly dramatic piece of work detailing the enigma that is the Winchester boys, you know- how they’re the stuff of legends that myths are formed from. Instead, the Jess voice waltzed in and made herself at home. This came out. I like it though. So enjoy. Set pre-series and Pilot. Also, I have no idea which animal’s DNA is the polar opposite of human, but turtles seem a pretty good bet.
She met him second semester in a class she signed up for in order to get easy extra credit. American Folklore.
Jessica Moore on Sam Winchester, with a side serving on all his little secrets- including Dean.
( Being Jessica )
prompt 11 on my table.
11. I believe Icarus was not failing as he fell/ But just coming to the end of his triumph.
R, 203 words, Post season 4 and slightly blasphemous.
( Redemption is just another ten letter word. )
I always get such an adrenaline rush when I finish a fiction. :D
Rating: PG-13; Gen.
Characters: Dean, John, and a bit of Sam (with a side mention of Jess and an OMC and OFC)
Warnings: mention of character death. spoilers only if you haven't seen up to 2.01.
A/N: Mostly pre-series. One of those "five things person 'A' knew about..." kind of thing. I guess you could say the whole title is Five things John never realised Dean knew. Anyway.
Disclaimer: I'm such a good girl, but Santa as never brought me them to claim as my own.
Summary: Dean knows his father. As well as he knows Sam. John never knew that.
