stripytights: (Dean and Sam)
If it feels like you've seen this post before, you have. I couldn't get the html of the original to format properly so I scrapped it. I'd blame lj but it's all me. Have backdated but who knows if that'll work either.

we were lovers in the great collapse. This is my springfling fic! I wrote for[ profile] viviansface's lovely song prompt 'The Great Collapse - The Zolas.' Originally I wrote most of a rock-band AU with J2 being arrested for public indecencies committed on stage. Then at the very last minute this idea hit me, I scrapped the other and went for it. I'm actually really happy with this one (and yes, that may be the only time you ever hear me say that about anything I write).

Reposted under the cut, now punctuated semi-correctly and with corrections made, because I like keeping everything on my journal.

Title: we were lovers in the great collapse

Fandom: Supernatural RPF

Pairing: Jared/Jensen

Rating: M

Content notes: switching

A/N: Thanks bro-stevesky for literally Ameri-picking this as I wrote it like a gently shining star. She's the reason Jensen isn't lying on a pavement, and also why there is no flocked/fucked pun.

Summary: Jensen doesn’t know what happened. He barely knows where he is. He just knows he wants it to work with Jared again.

I was going to save my recs for after reveal, but I don't want to wait that long to rec the fic I received. So part two of Spring Fling recs now that I've read most of my way through (not all the way but if I waited for that I would never ever rec anything). Bonus stick-figure art created in Paint for anyone who guesses what I wrote. Here's a clue. It's poorly punctuated.

Star Rec: All That Is Gone this is my gift and it is Sam/Cas and absolutely beautiful. It does a great job picking apart some of Sam's emotions about possession and being overridden. There's something especially chilling about the concept and the ending. Thoroughly recommend.

- Air and Earth - J2, you feel the pain of unrequited love and the sense of freedom generated by the ending is amazing. I want more, but the ending in itself is enough.
- Still Waters - Jess/Jo, femslash and banter and a really really cute fic.
- Confidential - J2, ART, I love the coloring of this and Jared's expression and the great sense of a whole story.
- All the Lonely People - Gadreel gen. Thoughtful and interesting. Made me reconsider the character.

In other news, enforced idleness from being sick as a dog makes me productive. I wrote a J2 rowing AU for salt_burn_porn (it turns out, researching after the fact, that American college rowing seems to be a bit different than college rowing here so apologies for the clearly non-American-ness of this) and my own take on soulless Dean for smpc which I know must have been written before a lot but I've never read one so it seemed like fun.

In other other news. You know what's a really poor idea? Blindly grabbing for a bottle of shampoo in the shower. I'm usually about this shade. Now I am. Turns out that products not belonging to me that claim to eliminate brassy tones and make your hair naturally lighter might actually work. I've been wearing a slouchy knit hat this whole weekend and looking like a tool.

Leaving this one unlocked, because recs. I've been reading my way slowly from the beginning using them like miniature incentives to actually do job apps. I haven't read nearly everything that I want to read so take this as my initial sample.

Our Last Summer - Jared/Jensen/Gen. ART. I want to roll around in this hayfield, because not only are the bodies and the way they touch so tender and beautiful, but the background is lovely as well and really evocative.
Coronation Day - Kali/Abaddon. ART. Cutest art eva. I love their poses and how Abaddon reminds me of the blond one from The Princess and the Frog, while Kali makes the most fantastic genie. Really fun and rather wicked.
Three Things - Sam/Kevin. This is great Kevin headspace, nothing shy and retiring about his inner life, just fierce and very very tough. The bits inside his head were convincing and made me happy at the ending.
Turntable - Jared/Jensen Hot, fun and action-packed, what more could you want? Jensen is suitably taken-aback at Jared's transformation and it all leads to a very satisfying place.
Starving - Sam/Dean. I really like the mood of this piece. It's contemplative, the time-gaps work as a way of indicating how Sam drops in and out,
Ardere - Sam/Jess ART. This has a great sense of mood, and really gives a story and so many possibilities. I especially love the colouring.

A Song of Ink and Fire - Sam/Dean ART.  This is probably my favourite thing of the exchange so far. Inked beautiful boys, and the closer you look, the more the tattoos will tear up your heart. From the DNR on Sam's chest, the Dean on his fingers and the Virgin Mary on Dean's back, it's visually stunning.
