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.
[SPN]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.
. 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
