Fiction: the talk

What can I say? The end of “Sharp Teeth” left a bad taste in my mouth. I’d like to think that this is how things might have gone the next morning if the boys weren’t so emotionally constipated and inarticulate these days.

“I don’t get it …” Sam stopped and drummed his fingers on his denim-clad knee. He didn’t need to look across the Impala to know he had Dean’s attention. He could feel his brother’s eyes on him.

“What?” Dean asked. (more…)


Fic Rec: Who Says Brother

I really like this one. Sammy uses his big-ass brain, and there’s not enough of that on the show these days.

Fic Rec: Bittersweet and Lavender

Bittersweet and Lavender

Author: sowell
Rating: G
Wordcount: ~1,700
Warnings: None
Author’s Notes: In flower terms, Bittersweet = truth, Lavender = constancy.
Summary: For the prompt “ANYTHING AT ALL in which an outsider targets a post-hell or post-purgatory Dean as recently returned from active duty military.” I’m not sure if this is what you had in mind, but I hope you like it anyway! Takes place between 8.09 “Citizen Fang” and 8.10 “Torn and Frayed.”


Fic Rec: Through No Fault of His Own

Through No Fault of His Own

Author: ficwriter1966
Recipient: robinasnyder
Rating: PG
Length: 1494 words
Warnings: Spoilers for 8.23
Author’s Notes: For this prompt: Depowered Lucifer or Gabriel, or really any angel (not Cas) depowered and having to deal with that heartache. I don’t think a heartbroken Gabriel occurs to many of us, but I loved the idea, and happily, my muse cooperated!
Summary: The morning after The Great Fall, Gabriel (who’s once again in his own private Witness Protection Program) ponders what his life has become, and what lies ahead.


Fic Rec: Swerve

Because Carver didn’t give us satisfying answers to what really happened to Sam when Dean and Castiel disappeared with Dick Roman, there’s lots of speculation. This an interesting little crossover with Criminal Minds, and who doesn’t love seeing a Winchester get interrogated.

Title: Swerve
Recipient: allhailaugustus
Rating: PG
Warnings: brief mention of suicide ideation
Author’s Notes: Crossover with Criminal Minds

Summary:
swerve (swûrv): to cause to turn aside or deviate: an abrupt change of direction.
During the year Dean’s in Purgatory, Sam ends up back in FBI custody.
