I've raided my saved fics for some stories from two of my favorite movie retelling communities for this weeks edition of Blast from the Past. These fics come from j2_everafter and reel_spn so if you have never been there, go check them out. Both of these Communities are no longer active, but hold some awesome stories.

Gen

A New Horizon
rememberbefore | PG-13 | Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester.
Summary. AU - The story of two boys and the family business.
I love this take on how the Winchesters fill the roles of the MacManus brothers.

The Real Labyrinth
rinkle | Rating | Dean, Sam, characters from Labyrinth
Summary.When Sam is taken by The Goblin King, Dean must enter the Labyrinth to save him. With six hours to find him, nothing is as it seems. Set after end of season 2.
Do you love Labyrinth as much as I do? then check this story out!.


Sam/Dean

Burn this city down to show you the light
lyra_wing | R | Sam/Dean
Summary.The thing about trouble was that it always found you when you weren't looking for it. Sam knew plenty of guys who chased after trouble every day – went out of their way to find it and to cause it. But the worst trouble always came when you just wanted to go unnoticed, when you just wanted to get the hell home and live to face another day.
If you ever wanted to read a fic with the boys set in 'The Outsiders' book/movie, this fic is for you.

Supernatural, Double Feature (The Winchester Horror Picture Show)
author | Rating | Sam/Dean, Sam/Frank, Dean/Frank, Sam/Columbia
Summary. A Supernatural remake/remix of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. “This is a record of how these boys were laid astray. How they’re still screwing to this day.”
Who doesnt like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and with Bobby as the narrator, this fic is awesome. Be sure to check out the awesome (and funny) art too, you can find it here

However You Like It
author | NC-17 | Sam/Dean. Special guest star Marilyn Monroe. Oh, and Chad.
Summary.Sam and Dean go undercover in dresses. They appear to like it more than they thought they would.
LOL a fun story, and the visuals of the boys in dresses are awesome. you have to read it!


J2
The World, It Was the Old World Yet
poor_choices | PG-13 | Jared/Jensen.
Summary.Jared Padalecki saved the world yesterday, and today, there are no parades or songs of praise or parties. But there's Jensen.
Coda to the book A Wrinkle in Time, its full of adorable geeky Jared, and jock Jensen after they have saved the world and dealing with going back to school after. A cute fic

Keepsake
indysaur | R | Jared/Jensen.
Summary.Jared is oriented to solve problems. He is solution-oriented.

He is not prone to damage. If an accident does occur, he has a healing protocol: a stream of glowing nanocytes that leave a patch, shiny and new. Very similar to a scar. Jared has three. One on his elbow. Another on his brow. One long one across his side. He rubs them, sometimes, when he's idle.
This is gorgeous, go read!

Nightmare before Christmas
queenklu | NC-17 | Jared/Jensen.
Summary.The first thought Jensen ever had in his entire existence was Jesus Christ, babies are so lucky they don’t remember their first thoughts. His second thought was, At least this guy doesn’t look as bad as all that, and he rounded the whole experience off with, What the hell kind of creep looms over people while they’re coming into existence anyway?
Funny quirky fic that fits so well with the movie its inspired by, with added art by nocturniquette1 that can be found here

Paved With Hearts
cjmarlowe | PG-13 | Jared/Jensen (also Jared/Brock)
Summary.Jared Padalecki has been shuffled from home to home for most of his life until one summer he's left with the black sheep of the family, his unsocial Uncle Jeff, up in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia. He unexpectedly finds a home and a family there, but when the summer's over he's torn away from it and placed with a family in the city; in return for having a good school to attend to finish his senior year, he's asked to befriend their shut-in son, a young man named Jensen who hasn't had an easy time of it either.
Based on the Disney version of Heidi, and set in British Columbia and Vancouver this is my kind of 'Heidi' LOL and there's a timestamp as well!

Destiel

Freefall
[AO3 account] lastknownwriter | Explicit | fic | Dean/Cas, AU
The most exciting kindergarten teacher Dean Winchester's life ever gets is when he plays mechanic in his uncle Bobby's shop on the weekends. That is until a birthday party goes tequila-nova and he trips into a one-night stand with an incredibly hot firefighter named Castiel. Dean's life gets a lot more exciting after that.
This series is an excellent blend of angst, hotness, and sweetness.


Het and other slash

"It's a Real Funky Town", Or Snapshots from Santa Carla
merrycontrary | PG-13 | Sam, Dean, Bobby, John, Edgar, Alan, Starla, David, etc.; Dean/Starla, Dean/David
Summary."I swear, man, you gotta update your cassette tape collection."

The best present Sam Winchester ever got was the used Walkman his Dad gave him for his fourteenth birthday. A Discman would have been better, but anything that could block out his family's wretched taste in music on a cross-country trek was all right with Sam. It was even worth putting up with the nicked Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls tapes Dean kept leaving in Sam's backpack. Sam actually made it all the way from Ohio to California only interacting with his father and brother during the brief periods between placing their orders and their food being delivered. It was heaven.
I've always loved the Lost Boys and this story had a neat little twist to it. A fun read.


Vids/Art/Misc

Hunters, Inc
mashimero | G | Sam Dean
Summary. It's not what comes out of the closet that children should be afraid of...
the picture really tells the story so well, and is recognizable from the first. The details are awesome too!

A Spaceman in King Arthur’s Court
cassiopeia7 | PG-13 | Sam/Dean au
Summary.Dr. Dean Winchester is a scientist who accidentally travels back to sixth-century England where he meets Sam, the innocent damsel-in-distress who catches his eye, and Sir Lucifer, the traitorous Round Table knight who wants nothing more than to possess fair Sam.
Created for the 1st round of super_disney, 18 pieces of art for this prompt really tells the story. Based on the movie Unidentified Flying Oddball (which is based on Mark Twain's 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.' its well worth the time to check it out.

Here Kitty, Kitty
dephigravity | G | Jared/Jensen
Summary. created for a commission, Kitty Jensen and Puppy Jared
These are so cute. The look on kitty Jensen's face as Puppy Jared teases him, its just so adorable

The Little Merdude
vicious_sock | PG-13 | Dean/Cas.
Summary.Once upon a time, in a place far beneath the sea, there existed a kingdom of the merfolks called Winchestia. Winchestia was ruled by the stern but fair King John and the beautiful and badass Queen Mary. King John and Queen Mary had two sons, Dean and Sam. Sam was the fourteen-year-old floppy haired younger brother who was apple of John and Mary’s eye. He was pretty cool, you know, for a little brother.
Cute art and story, I particularly loved Sam telling on Dean for using a 'bad word'

Untitled
[tumblr.com profile] drownedintea | Unrated by author (G) | Dean/Cas
Dean & Cas on bikes, kissing.
The artist says this was based on a dream, so the AU that leads to this sweet scene is left to the viewer’s imagination, which makes it all the more enjoyable.


Night Time/Day Time
[tumblr.com profile] hollyoakhill | Unrated by artist (G) | Gabriel & wee!Castiel animation
When angels play peek-a-boo, it’s a tad different.
The expressions on wee!Castiel’s face as Gabriel goes from hidden to visible are just adorable, as is Gabe’s completely in-character twist on the game.


Untitled
[tumblr.com profile] midget-banana | Unrated by artist (Mature/ NSFW) | Dean/Cas, end!verse
End!verse Dean and Castiel in a rough and intimate moment.
Despite or perhaps because of the relative lack of nudity, this picture captures the rawness and conflicted relationship seen in 5x04 “The End.”


Untitled
[tumblr.com profile] hellhoundsprey | Unrated by artist (G) | Weechesters
John’s friends had donated a few children’s books to the tiny family - but John was too busy and Dean couldn’t read yet. So he’d take the books and make up his own stories for baby Sam, according to the pictures.
There’s a bit more to the caption-ficlet, and both the picture and caption-ficlet are just adorable. However, Dean’s scrapes and bruises in the picture and John being “too busy” in the caption are sharp reminders of exactly why they need these moments of adorableness.


Hannah Puts Stars to the Sky Every Night
[tumblr.com profile] abaddonshark| Unrated by artist (G) | part of the palette challenge.
The angel Hannah, sprinkling stars into the sky.
This artist took a very interesting tack with this challenge, using transparency to lighten areas that needed to be outside the palette range. Whether you see it as innovation or cheating, the end result is very effective.


Cockles Kissing (Tumblr)/Cockles Kissing (DeviantArt)
[tumblr.com profile] irensupernatural/IrenSupernatural | Unrated by artist (G) | Misha/Jensen
Misha and Jensen share a stubbly kiss.
Gorgeous digital manipulation with the feel of a charcoal drawing.


a nice way to spend my saturday

Sketch of Dean Winchester.
The gorgeous textures in this picture make it seem like you could reach into your screen and touch him.

The Fight
[tumblr.com profile] timeladyofletters | Teen | Dean/Reader, can be read as slash or het
The bunker was quiet, apart from your heavy breathing and your heart hammering in your chest. Suddenly you heard the very faint sound of footsteps approaching from one of the hallways, headed towards you. Then a voice broke the silence.
This fic is amazing. The hook at the beginning is terrifying. The suspense of the reveal is wonderful. The fact that the author carefully left the gender of the reader open to the reader’s interpretation is very cool, and it's done so well that unless you’re scouring for clues, you won’t realize they aren’t there.

“Dean….did you service Oberon, King of the Faeries?”
[AO3 account] Secretlyademigodinthetardis | Explicit | Dean/Castiel/Oberon, dubcon
“Dean….did you service Oberon, King of the Faeries?”
And just with that simple sentence, everything Dean had been forced to forget hit him full force. His eyes widened with fear that Sam knew before he remembered himself, and his jaw clenched, hoping his bewildered expression was enough to convince Sam that no, he hadn’t. He said nothing in response, and turned back with a false, overly jovial smile. “Marian, say faeries are real….”
A very hot take on where that missing time of Dean’s went.

Summer Hues
[AO3 account] needsmoreyellow | Teen | 9x23 alternative ending/fix-it, temporary character death
9x23 AU. Dean is definitely dead, definitely not a demon, and Cas re-enacts the Chamber of Secrets without meaning to.
Castiel’s grief is piercing. Dean’s near-immediate shift into geekery is endearing. The two of them finally really opening their eyes is priceless.
 
 
19 August 2014 @ 05:58 pm
Negotiation
[AO3 account] emwebb17 | Mature | Misha/Jensen
Misha leaves Supernatural to do another show and clicks with the cast. Jensen sees how well Misha fits in with his new cast mates gets a little jealous and realizes exactly how much he misses him. He wants him back on Supernatural, and he's not willing to negotiate.
Reccer's notes: The extent to which Danneel and Vicki ship it really sells this.

In The Dark, In The Pain, On The Run
[AO3 account] geckoholic | Explicit | No Archive Warnings Apply; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD; Mental Health Issues; Self-Harm
After Sam's wall breaks, Dean decides they need some time out of the life. They rent a rundown house in a small town, and during the renovations, everything changes between them. Sam/Dean curtain!fic, veers off canon mid S6.
This story lets you spend some quality time with Dean’s halting attempts to take care of Sam, and Sam’s attempts back.

The Partisan
[AO3 account] nigeltde | Explicit | Graphic Depictions of Violence.
AU after 9x10 (Road Trip). Sam returns to the bunker and Dean before he's ready; still, he tries to keep it professional. He fails.
Beautiful writing, deep in Sam’s twisty and aching heart.

But Blood Is Thicker
runedgirl | NC17 | minor Dean/OFC and Dean/OMC; violence, S9 story that’s AU after mid Season 9
Desperate to escape his own self hatred, Dean takes on the mark of Cain and teams up with Crowley to go after Abbadon. Predictably, Crowley has his own agenda, manipulating Dean into succumbing completely to the lure of violence and power that the mark offers. Crowley seems to have won, but Sam has one last desperate idea to save his brother.
For those of us desperate to heal the wounds of S9, this is a satisfying way to bring the brothers back together.

Sorry for dropping off the radar, I was called up to pinch hit for a bigbang fic ( I had two weeks) and all my free time somehow disappeared. Here are some recs from some fellow reccer's and I promise we'll be back on track for Blast from the Past next week!!!

Gen

Mirrors
purple_carpets | PG | No author provided warnings; mention of violence.
A curse causes people to see Dean as Dean sees himself. Ellen is awesome about it.
From a hoodie-time prompt. Chock full of “oh, Dean.”

Sam/Dean

The Colts and the Haunting of the Port Hadley Lighthouse
[AO3 account] Halfhardtorock | Explicit | No Archive Warnings Apply; Temporary Amnesia; Episode: s04e17 It's a Terrible Life; Internalized Homophobia; Homophobic Language
“We need. We need fake names.” Sam said.

“What, like. Secret identities?”

“Like aliases. No one’s going to believe Smith and Wesson. I can’t even believe that I didn’t think of that either.” Sam ran a palm through his hair.

“How ‘bout, The Colts? We can pretend to be brothers. You know. Uh, like your dream,” Dean said.

“The Colts?” Sam said, skeptically. “The Colts: Ghost Hunters?”
Recently restored to the web, this is a great Smith & Wesson story where the amnesia lasts a bit longer.

J2

Club Tropicana

the_milky_way | R | fic | Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jared has been looking for a special someone for ten years. When Sandy gets him a job at the exclusive holiday resort Jared had spent three summers with this special someone he hopes to find him again. What he finds surprises him and maybe even exceeds all the hopes he ever had.

Destiel

At the End of All Things
[AO3 account] WinterSky101 | Teen | fic | Dean/Cas, warning: character death
Dean Winchester was once a young man. He isn't any more.
There’s sadness to this fic, but it is also sweet to see how the relationship between Dean and Castiel has evolved.

Learning Curve
[AO3 account] misha_anon | Mature | fic | Dean/Cas
When Dean finally finds the courage to kiss Castiel, he doesn't get quite the response he'd hoped for. Fortunately for them both, Cas is an eager student once he gets a taste of the pleasures of the flesh.
Curious!Virginal!Cas with somewhat-frustrated-but-still-excellent-teacher!Dean makes for one very hot combination.

It's a Cold and It's a Broken Hallelujah…
Author: freakgeeknation, Artist: milkbleed | R | fic with art | Dean/Cas, endverse
"Dean, I'm not an angel anymore." "What?" "Yeah, I went mortal." Told through flashbacks, flashforwards, and flashsideways, here's the backstory you didn't see of how Castiel became the Castiel you saw in "The End." And how the Dean you saw wasn't everything he appeared to be.
Somehow, this nonlinear fic manages not to be completely angst-ridden and bleak, though it certainly has moments that are. This glimpse into the paths that brought 2014!Dean and Cas to where 2009!Dean met them is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes chilling, and sometimes hopeful, but always insightful.

Candy Glass
[AO3 account] tikistitch | T | French Mistake AU.
JP, JA and Misha are sitting around the set bickering about nothing important when they are suddenly sucked into the Supernatural universe. Like for reals and stuff.
We’ve seen the results in canon of Sam and Dean finding themselves in our world. This author has some very cool ideas about what impact it could have on both universes if the tables were turned.





Het and other slash

Free As The Rent We Don't Pay
[AO3 account] MajorEnglishEsquire | Teen | fic | Kali/Gabriel, post-Hammer of the Gods
Nobody tells Kali what she is capable of.
Kali’s inner conflict and final decision ring very true to what we saw of her in HotG. Her feelings for Loki/Gabriel defy all logic and reason, and the result is glorious.

My Guardian Angel
[AO3 account] EddiPoo | Teen | fic | Castiel/Reader, warning: attempted rape
You have a bad encounter with several men in a dark alleyway. And there is no escape. Until an angel in a trench coat comes to your rescue.
What seems at first to be a classic/cliché rescue!fic turns out to be more complex with new monsters and mythology. The gradual/low key Castiel/Reader relationship adds a layer of immediacy and interest to this fic.

No Apologies
[AO3 account] dragonflybeach | Teen | fic | Sam/Jody
Getting your soul back after more than a year means you have a lot of things to make right. Or at least try to, anyway.
This fic has the perfect mix of contrite newly-resouled Sam and not-having-your-bs Jody.

Grooming an Ex-Angel
[AO3 account] benedictcumberlongpond | Explicit | fic | Sam/Cas
Sam takes Castiel clothes shopping after he's fallen, Cas makes some unorthodox clothing decisions that lead to some unorthodox situations.
Hot and sweet with bonus flustered!Dean.

Five Times Dean Winchester Slept with a Guy and One Time He Didn't
[AO3 account] slidingkinsey | Explicit | fic | Dean/OMC, Stanford-era
Dean is hunting on his own for the first time and this shit just keeps happening. And by "this shit", he means sex with men, but everything's much easier if he thinks of it as "this shit".
This fic does a great job of looking at Dean’s insecurities through the lens of these six encounters, five of which are also pretty darn hot.

Any Port
[AO3 account] Anythingtoasted | Explicit | fic | Dean/Aaron
“What’s this?” Dean holds up the offending piece of paper and Aaron almost snatches it right back. Big dumb closeted weirdo.
Awkward Dean is awkward, and the way Aaron handles him is downright sweet.

Vids/Art/Misc

Trueform Anna
[tumblr.com profile] 22to22 | Unrated by author (G) | art |
“I think ophanim are more suited for leading other angels than for combat, what with being two intersecting wheels covered in eyes. It struck me that the least-human looking angel might long for the experience of humanity the most.”
Just stunning colors and interpretation. As the artist’s caption/note says, a lot of thought went into developing this picture, and it shows.
