Saturday - Blast from the Past  

Donut Run
brightly_lit | PG-13 | gen
Summary. Soulless Sam wants donuts, and he's going to get them, whatever it takes.
There was so much comedic potential with Soulless Sam and this story just goes with it. Sam's thoughts are priceless as he doesn't let anything or anyone stand in the way of his quest.

Case Study 24-71X
pheebs1 | PG-13 | gen
A psychologist presents his insane patient Dean Winchester to his students. Kind of AU, I guess. Spoilers for the series up to and including Nightshifter.
I love fics like this, and this one doesnt dissapoint.  Set during Season 2 (and written around then too) the end had a nice reveal I didnt see coming.


janedavitt | R | Sam/Dean | implied incest/slash
The hiss of the shower filled the untidy, cluttered room and Sam listened to it carefully, his hands locked together in his lap, shaking slightly, picturing what was happening.
This was the first Wincest fic ever written, posted within hours of the pilot airing. Come and take a trip through memory lane and down the rabbit hole to where wincest first began...

Can't Just Walk Away
joyfulgirl41 | NC17 | Sam/Dean |
There are car problems and hilarity ensues.
This fic has humor, S1 boys and a nice little twist and the end, and was also the fic that used the term Wincest for the very first time in its fic descriptions!

Third Law
ash_carpenter | PG-13 | Set immediately after 8x11: LARP and the Real Girl.
Tentatively back on the right path, they know they need to tread carefully and take things slow. But. There's that whole Winchester thing.
The author’s notes say crushing angst, and there’s that, but it’s also beautiful in its inevitability, at least for the observers like us.

A history of violence
lyryk | PG-13 | Sam/Dean
 Sometimes the problem, Sam thinks, is that there are no rulebooks about how to be your brother’s ex.
Season 8 and Sam and Dean are so woven together with so much history. It's painful and a little hopeful at the same time. Beatifully written.


Punches and Pastries
keep_waking_up | NC-17 | J2 | Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics, Fluff, Knotting, Topping from the Bottom, Wooing
Okay, so maybe Jensen shouldn't have beaten up the two Alphas harassing him. But did the big idiot Alpha from the bakery really have to call the police?
A sweet, funny story in which Jensen definitely isn't your typical Omega, but that's okay, because Jared isn't your typical Alpha either.

Screw You, We're From Texas
makeit_takeit | NC-17 | J2 | Warnings for religious themes, minor drug use, bad language
Everyone knows the story - Jensen had plans to enroll at Texas Tech and become a Physical Therapist, Jared was heading for the University of Texas to become an Engineer. Instead, they both got against-all-odds breaks in Hollywood and ended up on a totally different path. This is the story of what could have happened if fate twisted differently, if they never got those big Hollywood breaks, and instead ended up living the lives they grew up expecting to lead.
Jared has always been more secure in his sexuality, but Jensen’s religious upbringing leaves him completely unprepared to deal with having feelings for another man. This is a gorgeous story about friendship and love, as well as an enchanting love letter to the state of Texas.

Mistakes We Knew We Were Making
[AO3 account] Fatebegins | NC-17 | Jared/Jensen | Mpreg (light references), AU, kidfic,
At sixteen Jared had to make the hardest decision of his life, he gave up his baby for adoption. Now years later Jared has the opportunity to be in his son's life-as a nanny. Desperate to have a connection with the child he always wanted, Jared takes the job but what he doesn't count on is falling for his son's gorgeous father, Jensen Ackles.
This story does a lovely job of showing a young Jared with flaws and creating the right amount of angst to keep the story interesting and compelling up to the very last sentence. Jared's relationships with minor characters including his son are touching and well rounded. The boy in this story is written right for his age and is charming and realistic. A bittersweet tale that will keep you rooting for a happy ending.

[AO3 account] DarkEmeralds | Mature | J2 | Warnings for Infidelity, minor character death, death from old age. RPF names have been altered to fit the setting.
The calling card said Tristan Jarrett, Viscount Penrith. Beneath that, in a lazy scrawl, was the addendum Mr Acklebury, be so good as to wait on me tomorrow, number 10, Half Moon Street. Yours, &c., Penrith. Mr Acklebury was not sure how he felt about being thus summarily commanded to paint his lordship's portrait.
This is a beautifully crafted modern take on the regency romance, a slow-burning story of forbidden love that is by turns heart wrenching and breathtaking. At 200k+, it’s easy to lose yourself in the world the author has created.

Everybody's got their own definition of just their kind - Break Loose Ranch Verse
technosage | NC-17 | J2 |
Jared's a dude ranch owner-operator, Jensen was on Supernatural but it washed out in a year, so he's singin' back-up for Chris and finding his way. Chad drags Jared to Kane concert. the music's not bad, better than he thought, but he finds something he likes much better.
Fantastic story that turned into a verse! Check out the other installments here at their fic journal

The Ultimate Gay Test or Whether Or Not To Lick Jensen Ackles
felisblanco | PG-13 | J2 | Jared/Mayhem is briefly mentioned.
It's not as if Jared's gay. He thinks. It's just that Jensen's so goddamn pretty.
Quite possibly the most entertaining characterization of Jared that I have ever read. This and the sequel are hot and hilarious.

It's All Fun and Games Until When Someone Gets Fucked In the Ass (or Five Ways Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki Never Fucked)
ephemerall | NC-17 | J2 |
The title says it ALL.
I have a weakness of "Five Things" fics, and this one is a special kind of awesome. Hot and urgent and OMG YES PLEASE. Run, don't walk to this fic!


Fire and Feathers
[AO3 account] Teumessian | E | Wingfic, first time, S5, bottom!Cas
After Castiel saves Dean from a close call on a hunt, certain repressed feelings are brought to light and limits are reached.
If you think Dean should have followed through on his promise to Cas not to let him die a virgin, this fic is for you. Mind the notes, which may be either enticements or warnings, depending on your preferences.

Anything Worth Dying For
[AO3 account] waldorph | E | Castiel/Dean Winchester,
It's the apocalypse, and this is the Book of Chuck.
A great post-S4 fic that does a great job of building on the whole concept of the Gospel According to Chuck and the various factions that we caught glimpses of up to the end of S4. Excellent world-developing and character-examination throughout as well.

The Cabin
[AO3 account] Bookkbaby | E | Castiel/Dean Winchester, wing!kink, post S7 AU
For an angel, the building of a Nest is sacred. Dean doesn't understand.
While it’s got a bit of angst, this is overall a feel-good fic with an interesting take on the culture of the angels.

[AO3 account] mkhunterz | E | Post-S8 AU, Castiel/Dean Winchester, graphic depictions of violence, suicide attempts, alcohol abuse/addiction, bottom!Dean
When Cas wakes up in the forest, human, he doesn’t know where to turn. Powerless, he is thrust into a world full of darkness and danger and thousands of fallen angels out for his blood. Struggling with his new emotions and having now only his own human strength and cunning to protect him, Cas finds himself pitted against human, monster and angel alike in his struggle to cross the world and find his way back home, to a family that may have already forsaken him. Lost and alone, battling against insurmountable odds, Castiel may finally learn the true meaning of ‘Fallen.'
While this fic has its dark moments (mind the warnings), it gives a satisfying resolution to the falling of the angels and all that ensues as Castiel finds his way around the world newly human. It’s particularly interesting to note some of the parallels to what has been unfolding in S9. Charlie playing matchmaker rounds it out nicely and gives some balance to the boys’ angst.

What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie?
[AO3 account] Annie D (scaramouche) | T | Castiel/Dean Winchester, fluff/schmoop, curse-related body transformation, body grossness, the eating of raw seafood, tentacles. (But no tentacle sex.)
Dean watched an anime porn about this once, but real life turns out to be way less interesting.
Or, the one where Dean gets turned into an octopus.
This is both absolutely hilarious and oddly insightful. Definitely a keeper for when canon leaves you in dire need of a pick-me-up fic. Do have tissues handy, but they’ll be laughing/happy tears.

One and only
[AO3 account] Signe_chan | T | Fic | Castiel/Dean Winchester, Kevin Tran/Sam Winchester, soul bonding
Dean knows, really, that someday they'll probably have to shut the gate to heaven. Angels, man. What can you do? But for now things are sweet. He has a home, Sam's safe, and Cas, well, he's Cas. And if the reason Dean's putting off slamming the door on their feathered neighbors is that he doesn't want to lose Cas when it took so long for them to finally get their shit together, well, Cas is going to leave him one day anyway when he finally works out what a loser Dean is. So if Dean can put off closing the gates until he'd get all the good times he can, that's not such a bad thing, right?
So when hostile angels decide to cause a mess, the Winchesters realize they need to close the gates of heaven once and for all, but they're going to lose Cas too unless Dean can prove himself worthy.
A bit of an AU end to S8 that looks at what might have happened if Metatron hadn’t shown up during Clip Show and the Demon Trials had worked without killing Sam. This fic gives Dean his own set of trials to complete, and as tough as they are objectively for anyone, they tug at every single one of his specific insecurities as he tries to prove himself to be something he believes he isn’t: worthy. The Sam/Kevin side pairing and the set of challenges they face offer a sharp contrast to the Dean/Cas angst, casting their struggles, particularly Dean’s, into sharp relief.

All That Is And Used To Be
[AO3 account] Misachan | E | fic | Destiel, Wing!Fic
Dean never even knew anyone was living in the old estate outside of town until its mysterious occupant contracts his shop for a very specific job: a custom piano bench with grooves cut into the back. He finds Castiel and his terms to be eccentric with a capital E but the money is too good to turn down and anyway, Dean can't help indulging his curiosity about the guy and his secretive, isolated life.
There are secrets that will not stay hidden and stories that refuse to be forgotten. Especially when they happen to involve Dean Winchester and the angel Castiel.
Even if you’re not into AUs, I suggest giving this one a try. This fic is an intriguing journey through Dean’s curious eyes to find out just what it is about this strange man, with a slow build and a startling twist.

Supernatural: Redemption Road
The Redemption Team | NC-17 | fic and art | Destiel; SPN Post-S6 alternative reality; NC-17 (overall); word count varies by episode – please check the episode list for details.
With Castiel having set himself up as the new God, drunk on power and volatile as a nuclear reactor, Dean, Sam, and Bobby find themselves on the run from the jealous, capricious monster wearing the face of their friend. Desperate for protection and wary of his brother’s mental state since Castiel unlocked Sam's memories of Hell, Dean knows Castiel must be defused before he can wreak further havoc in Heaven or on Earth. Although Bobby advocates for destroying Castiel by whatever means necessary, Dean is convinced the Cas he once knew still remains, buried somewhere beneath the mass of poisonous souls and calling out for help. Determined to save the angel who once rescued him from Hell and redefined his purpose in life, Dean himself must resist the allure of the false deity vying for his obedience, and come to terms with the knowledge, long-suppressed, that his feelings for Castiel run much deeper than brotherhood. It is this bond, and the dubious distinction of the Righteous Man, that will ultimately grant Dean access to where Castiel’s grace languishes in Purgatory. However, what Dean brings back with him is broken, angry, and only half-angel, certainly not the Castiel he remembers—and nor is it the only thing that returns to Earth with them…
If S7 left you a bit underwhelmed and you’ve been wanting a re-do, particularly if you’d like it with some exploration of themes and plot devices that seemed to just get dropped, not to mention a substantial helping of Destiel, then this is the virtual series for you. With 24 episodes plus “DVD extras” and a “director’s cut epilogue,” this will keep you reading for quite awhile.


There’s Chaos Theory in My Blood
[AO3 account] Catchclaw | T | Misha-Cas crossover. French Mistake!verse.
Nobody believes me when I tell this story. That's why I don't tell it at cons.
The first thing Castiel ever said to me was: "Hello, Dmitri."
A lovely bit of pre-S4 introspection a la Misha that does an excellent job showcasing the shift in voice between him and Castiel.

Blame it on the Rain
runedgirl | NC-17 | Jared/Jensen/Danneel
Reccer's summary: Threesome in the rain.
This is PWP but the relationship notes shine through and the believable connection makes it that much hotter.

The Official Supernatural Drinking Game (Hardcore Edition)
The name say's it all, but lets let the vidder give you the rundown.."Okay, normally when you play a TV drinking game, you have to watch an ENTIRE episode looking for scenes to drink to.
But we Supernatural fans are tougher than that, right?
So we're going to play the whole game in under five minutes.
Sam and Dean are going to play too! So step right up, grab a glass (and maybe a bucket) and let the drinking begin!
(Disclaimer: I only came up with the concept- I bear no responsibility for hangovers, projectile vomiting or damaged livers.)
And yes, I finally gave in and did a sequel. But please, DO NOT PLAY BOTH AT THE SAME TIME! I don't want to kill the fandom..."
So if you've never heard of this vid before (and by the way, where were you?) go and check out the Supernatural drinking game Video and its sequel! With 626,673 views, you know its a classic!

Oh man, so many golden oldies here I'd forgotten about. Just going to the Plastic!Winchesters page was enough to get me smiling, Sam with his crazy hair and giant smile is my favourite. I need to set aside some time to read through them again.

So happy to have Crack Impala back!
