stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
This is my favourite thing of today (crack fanmix for The Iliad) find the tracklist here. My favourites are Book 18: The Shield of Achilles — Build A Bear Workshop theme and Book 8: The Tide of Battle Turns — This Aint A Scene. Also the fight between Ajax and Hector being set to the Confrontation from Les Mis.

Ages ago, pliny wrote me Sam Winchester poetry in response to an ask meme where you had to reveal what you'd learnt from osmosis about something you've never seen it. I rarely remember to log onto Tumblr so here it is. Pliny is awesome at poetry and suspiciously spot on about Sam. How can you not love something that's funny and sad at exactly the same time.

I put my Sam h/c prompt fill up on AO3 here: under the waters still and deep and also my spmc entry: Don't Shoot the Sacred Symbol

Sam & Dean Minibang post-date tomorrow. I feel nervous though not for any particular reason.

This is going to sound really stupid and I have been on lj for far far too long to only ask this now but how do I format a fic post entry so it returns to lj's default when you click instead of retaining journal formatting. I'm pretty sure I've seen it done - possibly using =light at the end of the URL.

OhSam is running a commentfic meme at the moment for the express purpose of whumping Sam. I'm not very good at whumping anybody but I very occasionally like trying to, so I wrote a piece about Sam drowning that's a little more hurt than comfort. Who am I kidding, it's all hurt, I'm sorry. It's also gen and can be found here

Insmallpackages is running again this year. I was a complete fail last year but I'm cautiously resigning up so fingers crossed. My favourite low-pressure mini-exchange.

Posting date for my Sam/Dean Minibang grows closer. I am mildly excited, mostly because for the first time ever, yes ever, I've finished well before the actual date.

I've seen this from several people on my flist but the last one was [ profile] de_nugis so I'm counting it a snag from her. Ten Things to Love

1. I finished an essay and handed it in at least half an hour before the closing time. Looks like this finishing early lark is catching (well, early for me anyway).

2. My AllSaints t-shirt arrived in the post and it is as nice as it looked online.

3. I had steak for dinner tonight.

4. I get to meet a friend I've never met before in a couple of weeks time.

5. My flatmate invited me swimming. I didn't go because I couldn't find my costume but it's the thought that counts.

6. [ profile] salt_burn_porn is running and it's as awesome as usual

7. My fake stocks rose.

8. My room is tidy and my bed is made with fresh linen that smells amazing (this may have been the procrastination before the above essay got started).

9. I left my trainers in my parent's house so I have a legitimate excuse not to go to the gym.

10. I have red peppers stuffed with cream cheese. Delicious.

I will never ever make it as a stockbroker. Playing on the stock market with virtual money gives me the shakes, the thought of actually chucking millions of pounds around terrifies me.

I am also not signing up for [ profile] spn_reversebang even though I really want to and there's a gorgeous art prompt that is calling me. Must stay strong. I am however signed up for [ profile] salt_burn_porn and excited about it.

Fic rec: I strongly recommend this DCBB fic Enfleurage by [ profile] saltandbyrne. D/C generally isn't my jam but this is Sam/Dean/Castiel and it's beautiful. It's not only beautiful and an interesting Cas POV, but it has a great cast of supporting characters (Meg, Bela, Jo in particular) and a marvellous sensuousness to the description of the perfumes and all the other things that Cas can smell. Well worth the read.

Yuletide is here! There are so many good letters (check out the letters post here) and it's a very fun exchange.

Thanks[ profile] tebtosca and [ profile] riyku for running [ profile] spn_masquerade - I've had a great time reading through it all. Unfortunately I happened to be away on holiday for the majority of the meme time so I only managed one fill - The Terminal Point of Addiction (Sam/Dean) for a prompt that could have been written for me to grab (thanks OP!) and still only just finished it in time. There were some glorious prompts that I wish I'd gotten to though.

One thing I keep meaning to do (and forgetting) is to rec more often. Recently I haven't been reading much because there's too much going on, but I've been slowwwly working my way through [ profile] spn_masquerade. Hopefully at some point I'll be able to start making my way through the Big Bang fics, which really is a surfeit of amazing.

Initial recs can be found under the cut. I've mostly linked to people's journals if they've claimed them.

Title: The Terminal Point of Addiction

Fandom: Supernatural

Pairing: Sam/Dean

Rating: NC-17

Length: 10,000 words

A/N: Written for this awesome prompt at spn_masquerade. Title nicked (as usual) from Auden. Set in early seasons.

Summary: It freaks the fuck out of Dean but there’s no going back from what he’s realized. It’s something he can’t fix - it’s an obsession.

Title: Missing Piece of the Puzzle
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Chapter 7/7
Pairing: Jared/Jensen/Gen and all combinations.
Word count: 8212
Content notes: dubcon, mpreg, dystopia, sort of slave fic
A/N: With a huge massive thanks to plinytheyounger for her enthusiasm and her beta of this chapter - any mistakes that remain are entirely my own.

Additional warnings for this chapter: strong issues around bodily autonomy concepts, pregnancy, dehumanization,

Previous Chapters found here:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Summary: In a world where women can no longer have children, genetically engineered Omegas fill this function- if you can pay the price (and live with the consequences.) Jared and Gen are happily married, and buying Omega Jensen Ackles for the birth of their child seems like the perfect solution. The only downside is that Omegas can't survive the birth of a child- and that by design they degenerate after a certain age. Not that Omegas know this.

As the chapter is over 8000 words, I've decided it's simpler for once to update just on AO3. The new chapter can be found here. Feedback either on AO3 or on this entry is very much appreciated, especially as this is the final chapter

hurt/comfort bingo is a go. I'm heavier on the hurt than I am on the comfort, not so big on the breaking though. Much more fond of characters who endure or laugh it all off. I'm using my prompt me icon because there's at least 10 squares where I'm looking at it and thinking I have no idea what on earth I can write.

Pick a person/ship for a square and I'll see what I can do. Feel free to customise it - example: Sam, allergies (fish and hummus) or a longer thought. Any source I've consumed. Only 'no' squares are prostitution and abuse.

Obvious disclaimer: It's possible I may not write them. I can guarantee it won't be because of the prompt, but because bingos are really hard to complete.

This is a really weird one for me. My main experience of fandom has been either in the tiniest of tiny fandoms where I'm the only person writing and I literally do not expect anyone to click let alone comment (every book fandom ever), or when I'm in a big fandom to write a tiny pairing or gen (see LOTR and Arwen/Eowyn).

Suddenly I have Sam/Dean! Jared/Jensen! What is this madness?! Luckily, I still have a real yen for rarepairs, gen and rare characters - only 11 of my 26 SPN fics are Sam/Dean.

In the end though, I picked The Full Ride Experience NC-17 because you don't get more minor than a fic which is the only one in the pairing tag. It's Ruby/Tyson Brady with background Sam/Brady and Sam/Ruby.

The concept is simple - Ruby wants to know everything about Sam, every scrap of information she can use to manipulate him and Brady has things he can tell her. They work it out through sex. It's probably the most graphic het sex I've written (apart from maybe the Gen/Jared one with the fucking machine) but it (to me) succeeds in what it set out to do with the characters - the sex is never the point, it's an instruction manual in how to manipulate Sam Winchester through it. It also helped me work out a few Ruby thoughts - specifically regarding the change in vessels and the ostensible change in personality. Also, as I've bored everyone with a number of times, my only piece of unchangeable SPN headcanon is a college fling between Sam and Brady so I liked bouncing off that.

The real joy of SPN and associated RPF is that for the first time since Alexander the Great RPF (a surprisingly big fandom), I'm shipping a juggernaut. Two huge pairings even, and I get all the rest of the fic to read as well because I like everything.

I picked In the Midwinter Cold LJ, AO3, Dean/Sam, PG-13, 8.5K

I chose this one because it exists in an odd place for me. At the time I wrote this (December 2012) I'd been in the fandom proper for two/three months, and I'd read hardly any Sam/Dean fic at all. So in a sense it's what you get when someone's completely unaware of everything else written - which is a very freeing feeling. It was also the first thing I wrote for D/S with a semblance of a plot - there's a monster, a climax, everything! It contains some of my favourite tropes (as well, I hope, as some of my recipient's favourites) including huddling for warmth, intimacy, first kisses, time-disturbance, and plenty of brother time. It's low key and nothing special, but it was fun to write and an entrance into a different type of fic for me (please note the lack of sex! shocking!)
stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
In a sense everything I write is for myself, I wouldn't write it otherwise  - who has time for that? Then I really thought about it and realised that I totally have a story that is so self-indulgent and ridiculously, embarrassingly, clearly for myself, that I should pick it and weep over my bad taste.

Trial by Fire, Sam/Dean/Cas and all combos thereof, rated Hard R

This is my favourite fic that I've written, for exactly the self indulgence that I mentioned up above. In short, it's a season 8 divergent fic where, after Sam begins the trials, it riffs off the idea that he's being changed on a molecular level and separated from the rest of humanity as a precursor to the necessary act of closing hell. In this fic, it takes the form of Sam not being able to touch anybody without burning their skin, including through clothes. The only person exempt from this is Cas, who can touch Sam if he exerts the effort to. So touch deprivation, isolation, finding ways to bridge the gap all come into play. Writing a sex scene without penetration, and where two of the participants (Sam and Dean) can't touch each other, and for more than one reason was a challenge, and balancing the emotions between all three of them was even more difficult. At no point did I want Cas to be a proxy - he's not the conduit between them, he's a disrupting force. Also wooo chance to write Sassy! With bonus difficult emotions that neither of them can articulate. My jam, all of it is my jam.

With my other recs this meme I've been upfront with the bad bits to them, but I'm not going to bother listing the things that are wrong with this one (though there are plenty!) but I give a fair heads up that I couldn't find a beta for it and that my issues with commas are pretty awful, though I think I've caught the worst of them by now.

Title: The Daily Grind
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 3172
Content notes: handjob, blowjob
A/N: Written for the J2/Wincest JIBCON meme for [ profile] homo_pink's excellent prompt. I'm to blame for every single pun in this. I hate myself enough for everyone.

Summary: Jensen's a grumpy barista. Jared's the protestor who uses his coffee-shop to create his banners. Glitter flies.

The story I picked (and as a change it's neither SPN nor SPN RPF!) is a loaded weapon (ready and waiting) rated Explicit, which is Hercules Hansen/Stacker Pentecost from Pacific Rim and written for acaramelmacchiato/bro-stoevsky

Sadly Hot Dads (official ship name right there) never really took off (I do not know why - look at this screencap and boggle also) but it seized my brain and made me wonder what a relationship would look like between two people who verbally barely interact but whose presence, ease with each other and the way they anticipate one another came across so well. It was a joy to write for bro, not least because it forced me to be significantly more subtle than I usually am. I ended up dialing back every single extreme and working on creating a mood of extreme tiredness. It ended up infecting the whole story and creating a slowness to their actions, a damped down enjoyment of their time together, a parallel to the fact that they're aging but not decaying. I liked the chance to get the other side of Chuck's damage as well - writing jerks (and their reasons) but not excusing them is always fun.

If I was writing it all over again, there's things that I would fix - I'd like to add a little more about where they know each other from first in particular, but as a snapshot of a relationship between people at a time of crisis, who play their cards close to their chest but who know each other from the bone up, I think it works. And the recipient liked it, which really I am the happiest about.
stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
Day 1: Something Old

For Day 2: something new, I was torn between A Skewed Reflection (Sam has sex with a soulless Dean) and What Goes on Tour (Jensen joins Jared's band, they have sex - there may be a theme in my writing here.) In the end I picked What Goes on Tour because it feels like a story other people didn't like at all in the main.

I'm not entirely sure why but possibly the huge amount of amazing Band AUs already out there doesn't help. Since this is the self promotion meme though, I'll talk about what I did like about it. It's not as overtly meant to be funny as say Masturbation Science Theatre 3000 but it's my sort of humour and in the main the band and their activities are based in real life. I've never been a musician (got asked to leave my violin lessons for not being able to move past 'hot cross buns') but for someone who doesn't really enjoy much music, I've dated a number of musicians and been to a lot of live gigs. So, the backdrop was something I knew about, it was a chance to include Danneel and Gen, and man, I just really love wall-sex, public blowjobs, and fucking through clothes. I do wish I'd brought the setting (early 2000s) more clearly to life and that's definitely something it lacked for me.

The Seven Days )
stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
This pre-dates any of my SPN activity in the last couple of years and was my toe-dip into the fandom at around about season 5 in 2009. I never posted it and it languished in a folder because I stopped writing altogether.

As early season 5 fic the story drips with angst naturally, but then the show was dripping with angst as well, so tonally it's not a complete disconnect. I like that I can spot themes in it which remain relevant to what I write now - disconnects between sexuality and attraction, the question of how far is too far to push something in the name of love. It's Sam trying to recreate trust between them via a blowjob, complicated by alcohol and by the fact that neither of them are attracted to each other. As a story it's fatally flawed, but concept-wise I love it.

Serpent Around Your Heart, Sam/Dean, NC-17, 1500 words
