On the first day of Christmas, there's an Abaddon ficlet involving pears for [livejournal.com profile] cassiopeia7. Underneath the cut for mentions of gore, torture and Abaddon being a dick.

December meme? Oh you mean that December meme? I joke, I've mostly kept up with doing the entries so I'll start posting tomorrow. Before that though, it's recs time.

I posted some previous minibang recs here and I have two more!

Behold, A Pale Horse - [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte. This is a love story right at its core, beautiful, dark and riddled with hopeless sadness and yet at the end of it all, that intense sense of love and inevitability that always traces Sam and Dean's footsteps. I don't think I've read anything quite like it in a long time (do heed the warnings). I wholeheartedly recommend reading it.

Edges - [livejournal.com profile] glovered. This is also heart-touching but in a completely different way. Sam's stretched thin and fading connection with his brother, the slipperiness of the understanding between them, the sadness of Brady in the background and that crushing knowledge of what waits for them all - the title is perfect, because even when there's light in the story there's the future waiting. It was a fantastic mix between the two.

Other fic

see - [livejournal.com profile] steeplechasers. True forms. Clever true forms combined with crystal sharp description, and a sense of loss and loneliness in how Dean feels towards Castiel's true form and the changes it goes through. Love it.

You'll No Longer Burn - songlin. I can count on one hand the number of times I've read genderswapped Dean and liked it, and this is one of those times and possibly the only het fic veresion. There's something unapologetically harsh about this conception of Dean and how their family dynamic would be even more messed up that really worked for me, although the story is mostly sex.

To the Devil his Due by [livejournal.com profile] monicawoe Wonderfully disturbing Endverse, with all the touches of survival and hope at the beginning, fading into a deeper darker Lucifer and the Sam he's taking back.

What I Wouldn't Do - dollylux Gen/Danneel femslash. With a wonderful sense of place - an absolutely loving portrait of a neighbourhood and a mood, and a great sense of physicality between them, something that seems to go missing in a lot of femslash. I really liked this a lot.

Art

Art for [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte's SDMB by quickreaver, found here. It's stunning, the colouring used in particular, but also the posing of Sam at the end, like some marble statue carved perfectly, and the one of him with blood running down his lip that's giving me strong Art Deco vibes in the construction of Sam's hair, and yeah pretty much all of them. I rarely rec art because I lack art vocab to describe it but these are all perfect.

"...so darkness I became." - [livejournal.com profile] cassiopeia7. Okay, I am always going to be a sucker for Pieta style SPN art, and this is no exception, and then to follow it up with Demon eyed Sam crying was perfect, a real sense of story across the two images ( a story I would love to read) and the look on Sam's face in each is heartbreaking. Plus bonus Bela, which I am always appreciative of - especially one again with a story behind her and a magnificently creepy hand. I do love a piece of art with a palpable sense of narrative to it.

Vid rec

Crazy - by justmep. Demon Dean, the song works perfectly in conjunction with the voiceover clips, and yeah, I did love some Demon Dean and this was just really good. I've watched it about ten times now I think.

I'm going to get started on my December meme tonight but I can't resist posting early with a rec for my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas gift because it's awesome. Take a ton of my favourite things (post-apocalyptic/Sam'n'Dean/alternate ends/stoic warriors) and put them into a giant blender and you basically have my gift. It's hopeful and has a great show feel to it and I recommend it absolutely. Thank you so much [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams for really starting the holiday season off with a bang, you're terrific.

Title: Second Verse, Same as the First
Author: amberdreams
Characters: Sam Winchester, Lucifer, Dean Winchester, Risa, Chuck, Cas
Word count: ~5800
Rating: Gen R
Warnings: Character deaths and resurrections as per canon. Kind of.
Summary: The End AU. In this version, there is no trip to the future for Past!Dean. Sam said yes, Dean said no, and though Dean found the Colt, his attempt to kill Lucifer with it failed. So now Dean is going to try Plan B, and lead a small team to face Lucifer again. The story is told from Risa’s point of view.

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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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.

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 [livejournal.com 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. [livejournal.com 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.

Thanks[livejournal.com profile] tebtosca and [livejournal.com profile] riyku for running [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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.

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.

Everyone should go here and prompt/fill for Sam's birthday meme.

I filled a gen prompt about Sam gazing at herons called 'the sun upon the lake is low'. The title is nicked from Wordsworth Sir Walter Scott. I found the prompt particularly inspirational given the quantity of herons who live around these parts.

 I highly recommend the art fill for the same prompt by [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver which you can find here

Summary: When Dean temporarily has his soul removed by a witch, Sam knows what he feels like and what makes him tick. Too bad, Dean knows exactly the same thing about him

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.

Day 7
In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

Ficlet about Ruby, demons and meat suits. Warning for some gore. )

Day 8
In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

I think I'm gonna skip this one. Maybe during summer when I'm livelier. I find it an emotionally draining exercise to put myself out there.

Day 9
In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving.

I wrote some gen Artemis fic as a leap off from 'Remember the Titans', the original idea of which was snickfic's.

Anyhow the fic itself can be found here: The Longer Hunt

I'm off to visit my brother for a week and while I'm sure I'll be writing, I'm unlikely to be around on lj. This leads nicely into trying to clear my plate a little before I go. Chapter Five of Missing Piece of the Puzzle is underway, and I'm doing a kinkmeme fill which started off as sexy horrible jerks and then took a sharp left turn into crack.

I am still behind on Supernatural so I'm considering acquiring them tonight to watch one on the plane and the other on the train ride down. Then I can drown my sorrows when I reach the other end and pray that my brother has abandoned his idea of a quick day trip to France.
