stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
[personal profile] stripytights
I'd been looking forward to this fest for some time, and although it didn't go quite as I'd hoped in terms of my own fic (which, because flogging a dead horse is excellent exercise you can read here), I always appreciate getting to read new fic by other people - the best bit of being in a large fandom!

So here are a few recs (for fic because I'm pretty terrible with art recs - there was a lot of lovely art though!)

- Your Children Will Come at You with Knives by [ profile] steeplechasers- the most visually striking piece of the challenge for me, there was a fantastic sense of terrible inevitability and a beautifully muffled depiction of manipulated emotions and fear. Definitely recommend.

- Juxtaposition by [ profile] moonyj4m - super tender take on a slow growing closer through shared beds and shared closeness. Really well paced and the slide from (mostly) platonic bedsharing into their relationship was perfect.

- Heaven Sure Ain't Like It Is In The Brochure by [ profile] righteousbros - wonderful use of canon in particular Dark Side of the Moon, a perfect fixing of all the untied ends. Very sweet and warming. I'll take a slice of that with a cup of tea please.

- The Treadmill by [ profile] amber1960 As well as fix-its, I adore fics that fixes things without that being the central core of the story - in this one there's a (intriguing) plot, there's Sam time and then this wonderful resolution that ties it up neatly and ends on a hopeful note. Lovely.

- Five Times the Winchesters Pretended They Didn’t, and One Time That Didn’t Work by [ profile] runedgirl - there may be a theme to these recs (with the exception of the first one!) and this is no different - there's a slow build relationship that I can only describe as pretty - the descriptions, the emotions and then the ending that unites all the different threads into an understated but real happiness.

Thank you for the rec! I'd second steeplechasers and runedgirl. Now I need to read some more minibangs, as I'm so behind with that...
