A rec! Because I actually read another story! I think this makes...three in just under a month? That's kind of a record for me, lately.


Y'all need to go read [livejournal.com profile] runedgirl's The Only Thing That's Real.(That link goes to the Master Post.) It's Sam/Dean, post-6x22, and a pretty chilling look at what life for Sam could be, now the wall's come down.

But it's also chock full of brothers who love each other, and who will do anything for each other. They're so messed up, but it doesn't matter because they have each other, and the way Lynsey writes them and that love, it's palpable. Think 3-D fiction, seriously. Along with the love and the snuggling/cuddling/caring, there's some seriously hot sexin', and just--guh. This story feels not unlike a soft, warm blanket you could wrap yourself up in. It's just gorgeous.

Because I ignored the need to sleep, to stay up and read this, and OMG, so worth it!

Put Your Arms Around Me Like A Ring Around The Sun by [livejournal.com profile] topaz119 (The link goes to AO3 at the moment.)

It's Sam/Dean, and Sam/Dean/OFC (nominally) and it's gorgeous and wonderful and breathtaking. There's a case, and a fantastic original character, and hot sex...but even more than the sex is the incredible bond between the Winchesters. So go, read, and then be sure to leave feedback for the author :)

Oh, my God. If you do nothing else this weekend at ALL, go read Eyes On the Prize, by [livejournal.com profile] killabeez. It's Sam/Dean, set post-6x22, and it's absolute perfection.
mickeym: (spn_lust need and passion)
To The Bone, by [livejournal.com profile] road_rhythm. It's Sam/Dean, NC-17.

Author's warnings: Masochism; consensual but conflicted sexual situations; gore; electrical play.
Set: During S6, post-06x12

Summary: Half his instincts are crying out against this. He doesn't want to hurt Sam. He's not supposed to hurt him. The other half are twisting up his insides in a sick mess of lust, because what he's doing is making Sam beg in all the right ways, and that—that he does want.

This is a rarity in fanfiction (as far as I'm aware; if I'm wrong, feel free to direct me to the evidence!) - a story that focuses on masochism without bringing other aspects of BDSM into play. It's also an incredible look at the complex relationship between Sam and Dean.

I'm still feeling pretty speechless, to be honest. This story blew me away on so many levels. If you read it -- and I hope you will -- be prepared to be left gaping. It's just that fantastic.

Insights, by [livejournal.com profile] mimblexwimble.

It's gen, and it's a/u, and the author has put Dean on the autism spectrum.

As I said in my comment, I went to read this very warily, because I'm always concerned about how autistic disorders are going to be portrayed, and as anyone who reads my journal knows, it's a personal thing.

This story felt intensely personal, because one of the things Dean is wanting/grappling with, is something Matthew has grappled with and wanted, in the past. Not so much now, but it was a huge issue when he was younger, and even thinking about it now makes my chest ache.

Go read the story. It's a short piece, less than 1000 words. But those words pack one hell of a punch, particularly the last couple of lines.
mickeym: (spn_j2 fake but not)
I very seldom do these, but this story deserves to be recced all over the damn place:

As This Sunset Turns to Morning, by [livejournal.com profile] _mournthewicked. It's a high-school a/u, and it is an absolutely stunning piece of storytelling. It has angst and schmoop, and romance, and it's a long, long read (86K!!) with a lot of character development, and wonderful secondary characters. It'll break your heart in places, and then mend it back together again.

Author's summary: Jensen spends his life hiding who he is from the family that would never accept him if they knew. When he’s uprooted in the middle of his senior year and suddenly becomes the new kid, his carefully placed mask begins to slip. Especially when he meets Jared – a loud, outspoken spectacle of a boy that fights for everything Jensen was taught to stand against. Jared has no problem going after what he wants, and now it’s just a matter of Jensen letting himself do the same.

Go read it, you'll be glad you did :)

As y'all probably know, I've been sick all week, and it's sucked out loud. I asked if anyone would write me some schmoopy, porny Sam/Dean, and [livejournal.com profile] seventhpage was an absolute sweetheart and delivered this wonderful bit of fic for me:

Like A Stream That Meets A Boulder. It's Sam/Dean, NC-17, and it's just gorgeous. Slow, quiet, sleepy and sexy, and so full of love it'll take your breath away.

It's not always like this, not always soft and steady and quiet, but sometimes it is. Sometimes things are just like this, sometimes everything just narrows down to the two of them in a world of their own, rocking against each other in the quiet.

Go read it, and then tell her how much you enjoyed it.
mickeym: (spn_awkward reunion)
Y'all who know me know I'm a die-hard Sam/Dean gal. But oh, man, you need to go read In Nomine Patris, by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter.

It's Dean/Bobby--but before you go 'ohmyGOD, can't go there!', hear me out.

It is utterly fantastic. Dean is so incredibly fucked up, and Bobby is wonderful, just wonderful, wanting to help him. To fix him, and all the Winchesters.


"Maybe you're right but it'll have to wait for tonight. Your dad wants you out the back, wants to see you shooting while the light's still good."

There's no tone of dire warning in Bobby's voice, this isn't news that should make Dean's shoulders slump like that. He tries to catch a better look at Dean's face as Dean turns away.

"Hey, don't look like that about it! He's not planning on using you as target practice."

He wants a smile from Dean and it says something that he has to try, Dean's one of the easiest-going kids he knows. He gets a weak imitation of a smile and it's like he's taken a swig from the flask of holy water instead of the whiskey one. So he reaches out and lays a hand on Dean's shoulder. He almost expects Dean to jerk away and he's relieved when he doesn't.

"What's the problem, Dean?"

He feels a flutter go through Dean's body and he's struck by just how fragile the boy suddenly seems. All that training, the weapons practice and the long years of taking care of himself before he even hit double-figures, and Dean's still just a short kid with a pout right now.

"I screwed up yesterday," says Dean. "Dad said I wasn't trying but I was. I just… I wasn't quick enough and… so Dad says I have to keep practicing until he can be sure it won't happen again. He's still mad at me. 'Cos I screwed up."

One of these days Bobby's policy of non-interference is gonna get trampled on in his rush to knock John's head against the wall a few times. Sam, young as he is, shows enough sense not to take it to heart when he doesn't match up to John's crazy standards. Dean though… Bobby worries about Dean.

"You can only do your best, Dean. Your dad knows that. That's all he's asking for."

Dean looks up at him and there's a second, just a second as his eyes fix on Bobby, wide and shining, that Bobby feels a prickle of disquiet. And then Dean's mouth settles in a reluctant, wary smile and that's enough to make Bobby rest a little easier.

Now, go read, and be sure to leave feedback for the author. She deserves LOTS of kudos for this.

Stopped At The Crossroads - by [livejournal.com profile] dark_reaction. It's a/u, and it's raw and hopeful and so incredibly good that I'm still sitting here, wanting to cry just to get it out of my system.

The author's summary: There are no demons, only night terrors. There are no funerals, only family in-fighting. What would Sam and Dean be like in a world without demons?

Sometimes when Sam is upset he gets grim, silent, and jittery. Dean finds the old air mattresses that they took on Boy Scout trips and takes the crappy black Styrofoam loveseat in their room and makes a fort out of it. His Speed Racer sheets partition them off from the rest of the world. They lie inside and watch the light from the window make patterns on the sheets, no younger brothers are allowed.

Mom lets them leave the fort up these days, even though she really wants to tell them to take it down. They crawl in, careful not to knock anything that would send the whole thing tumbling to the floor, and listen to the radio. Dean’s knuckles brush Sam’s and he smiles.

This is just an absolutely gorgeous story. Go read it, and be sure to tell the author that you liked it.
mickeym: (spn_it's supernatural!)
Okay. It's been a long time since I did anything like a LIST of recs. In fact, I'm not sure if I've actually recced any SPN fic. *ponders* In any case! This is a list (one of many, probably *g*) of stories I've read recently that I really enjoyed (the recs) and a few I haven't, but I'm linking to based on the strength of the author's other works. I want to have a list handy to work off of, y'know? And there is so.much.awesome fiction in this fandom, it's a little overwhelming at times.

If I haven't actually read the story yet, it'll be marked with an ( * ).

[livejournal.com profile] visionshadows, I've given you some of these, but a lot of them are ones you haven't seen yet. [livejournal.com profile] poetdiva28, you can just start anywhere *g*

Off the Script, by [livejournal.com profile] jasmasson. RPS a/u, J2, NC17. Jensen's a seasoned veteran in the porn industry, and he doesn't like the star. You'll need a cigarette after reading this one!

Maybe This - by [livejournal.com profile] nu_breed and [livejournal.com profile] enoughoflove. RPS a/u, J2, NC17. Jared's a high-price whore; Jensen's a hollywood star on his way up. I loved this so much, even when I wanted to bash their heads together. *g*

Faint Stars and Bright Satelitte Skies - by [livejournal.com profile] marishna. RPS a/u, J2, NC17. Small-town Texas meets big-time Hollywood. I've re-read this one a bunch of times, and it just gets better every time. The character interactions and development are fantastic.

Last Stop: Chicagoland by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa. RPS, future!fic, J2, NC17. Supernatural's over, but what about family, careers and their relationship? This is a wonderful look at the imperfections and little things that make up a relationship.

Times Two - by [livejournal.com profile] gilascave and [livejournal.com profile] wolfling. Sam/Dean (mildly a/u), NC17 (first in a series) Sam is given a chance to do things differently, and he wants Dean's heart's desire. I am so in love with this story that I would marry it and have its babies, if I could. Be sure to read ALL the stories in the series, because they're all equally fabulous.

Ink - by [livejournal.com profile] makesmewannadie. Sam/Dean, NC17 (tattooing) Sam discovers a kink, kind of by accident, and then it takes over. This story is so hot your eyebrows will end up singed *g*

Everyone Experiments in College - by [livejournal.com profile] indysaur. RPS a/u, J2, NC17. College!a/u. Is there anything better? Lots of great dialogue, banter, misunderstandings and sex *g* The story is complete; just keep clicking on 'next' at the end of each chapter.

On Midsummer Nights I Dream of Winchesters - by [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c. Sam/Dean, Adult. A haunted theatre, a mischievous spirit, and Shakespeare. It's very cleverly done, and the non-Shakespeare banter and dialogue is fantastic.

Green-Eyed Monster - by [livejournal.com profile] agt_spooky. RPS, J2, NC17. Jensen is used to wanting what he can't have, but the thought that someone else might have it is more than he can stand.

We Were Twenty - by [livejournal.com profile] elohvee. Sam/Dean (future!fic, a/uish) NC17 (character death). Don't let the character death scare you away. This story broke me in the best way possible. What if Sam couldn't hunt any more? Can the boys do normal? The author has some fantastic OCs that will steal your heart.

Spark - by [livejournal.com profile] pandoraiam. Sam/Dean (SPN a/u), NC17. Dean's a firefighter in Chicago. He meets a strange young man during a fire rescue, and is instantly intrigued and bothered. A really cool 'what if' scenario, and one that could've easily happened, if CPS had ever gotten involved. I have so much love for this story.

The Truth About Heaven - by [livejournal.com profile] destina. RPS, J2, NC17. Supernatural is winding down...so what happens next? Destina writes fabulous character-driven stories that pull you in and make you feel like you're part of the story, and this one is no exception.

To Write In Ancient Dreams - by [livejournal.com profile] albydarned. Sam/Dean, NC17. An ancient curse threatens earth, unless Sam and Dean can figure out what they have to do to stop it. This has one of my most favorite fannish elements: sex magic. The plot is great, and the sex is scorching :)

Far Side of the Sea - by [livejournal.com profile] ellipsisblack. Sam/Dean (a/uish, future!fic), NC17. A 12th-century Scottish village appears on the Carolina shores, and then disappears again, with Dean inside it. I'm still all *flail!* over this story. It's chock full of details and layers. The voices are fantastic, and Elle's done fantastic things with Celtic mythology. It'll make you ache, and laugh, and cry, and wriggle, and the ending will definitely catch you off-guard.

When I Look At You (I've Got A Second Chance) - by [livejournal.com profile] sinoftheday. RPS a/u, J2, NC17. JT really doesn't want to go to soccer camp, but once he meets Jensen, he decides it's not so bad. It's wonderful and sweet and hot and just so fantastic.

Rubber Ducky (You're the One) - by [livejournal.com profile] impertinence. Sam/Dean, Adult. Crackfic, according to the author, but it was absolutely fabulous. Dean's a rubber duck, and then he's not, and then he is. There is incredible dialogue, and you'll laugh out loud reading it.

Exact Change - by [livejournal.com profile] dontyouwaitup. Sam/Dean, NC17. Post 'Heart', and Sam and Dean are trying to figure things out. The author works in a great case, and a lot of bonding, and gah. There's no chance that I can do justice to this story with a summary. Just go read it; this story will break you in the best way possible.

The Promise - by [livejournal.com profile] gillianinoz. Sam/Dean, (a/uish), NC17. Sam and Dean are kidnapped. They make a promise to each other, not to leave the other alone. (Contains underage, consensual sex.) This story makes me ache, because so many children DO get kidnapped, and it's not impossible to imagine this happening to them.

And really, everything on Gillian's website is good. Go read all her SPN fic :) Gillian's Supernatural Stories

The 1300 Days In Between by [livejournal.com profile] stele3. Dean/OMC, Dean/OFC ETA:I've read this one, now, and ohmyGOD. It will rip your heart out and shred it up and then slowly start reassembling it. The 1300 days between when Sam leaves for college and when Dean goes to get him, and I cried three different times while reading it -- AT WORK. Jesus. Go read this. It's fantastic.

Honey Flower, Apple and Lime - by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay. RPS a/u, J2, NC17*

Beds That Have No Answer - by [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama. RPS, J2*

Monogatari - by [livejournal.com profile] winterlive. RPS a/u, J2, NC17*

Five Districts, Five Drugs - by [livejournal.com profile] rei_c. Sam/Dean (a/u), NC17*

Hunger of Old Mouths - by [livejournal.com profile] plutogirl10. Sam/Dean, NC17*

Swear By All Flowers - by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain. Sam/Dean, NC17*

History of Penance - by [livejournal.com profile] cyndrarae. Sam/Dean, NC17 (mild bdsm, spanking)*

Seek - by [livejournal.com profile] indysaur. RPS, J2, PG13*

The Language of Waves and Radiation - by [livejournal.com profile] moveablehistory. RPS a/u, J2, NC17*

And wow. It took me almost two hours to find, code and summarize these. Whoa. Hope you enjoy, and be sure to give the authors feedback! :)
