#FBF anyone? Time for some pre-series Sam/Dean recs! Angst, protective big brothers, pining little brothers, and people looking twice at siblings who are far too close for their own good. Love it! <3 (also? I think I've found some of my new favourite writers right here).

The Time Traveler's Brother by amypond45 (Sam/Dean, NC-17)
Dean's life is turned upside down the night his mother dies. But that's also the night a mysterious grown-up version of Dean's brother first appears in his life. While Dean grows up, "Old Sam" is often there, especially when Dean's father isn't. As Dean learns what the future holds, he begins to question everything his father has taught him about who he is and what he is supposed to become. Can Dean find a way to save his little brother from his own future?

Flagstaff by Linden (pre-slash Sam/Dean, M)
John tracked Sam down in Flagstaff, four days after he got home to find him gone.

Muscle Memory of the Heart by Colette_Capricious (Sam/Dean, M)
It’s in him like his eye color, trained into him like his reflexes, his aim. It’s muscle memory of the heart loving Sam, talking care of Sam, and it will be the last part of him to go.

Tape by FrancesHouseman (Sam/Dean, M)
Dean has a new tactic for getting his own way...

...and then there are pranks...

...so obviously Sam has to secretly record Dean having sex, which is in no way creepy and weird, until it totally is.

Multitude of Sins by Linden (pre-slash Sam/Dean, M)
Every now and again, Jim Murphy would look up from his altar and find the Winchester boys at the back of his church.

This week’s episode of Supernatural left me thinking of all the great fic in which the Impala plays a key role over the year.  From PWP to sheer fluff, here are four great stories to read with Impala galore!

I Could Tell You Why by nutkin (Sam/Dean, 4.7k, NC-17) The fallout right after Scarecrow.
The author calls this ‘Sheer, unadulterated porn in the back seat of the Impala’ and I pretty much agree with that.

American Myth by candle_beck (Sam/Dean, 14k, R) As long as you have a car, you are free, and other lies my country taught me.
This fic is all about the Impala being stolen and the boys trying to get it back.  Candle_beck was one of the first authors I ever read upon entering fandom and this story is one of my favorites of zers.  It completely brings you back to the early seasons Sam-and-Dean, and the climax of the story always reminds me why I love those two together.

Vegas by astolat (Sam/Dean, 2.9k, NC-17) It started when Bobby sent them an email: Got a line on a used V-12, good shape. $20,000 cash. You got a week to get it if you can.
The vast majority of this fic is set in Vegas as the boys try to get the money to buy the part for the Impala from Bobby.  Sam is suitably long suffering when dealing with Dean’s hijinks, and the end result is hot. Astolat was another of my first fandom authors and, like candle-beck, all zer fics deserve a read.

The Road to Come by latentfunction/keysmash (Sam/Dean, R, 8.7) Working together again is easy enough. Living together is the hard part.
Like “Baby,” this fic is comprised of moments in the Impala.  It’s very slice of life, post Sam getting out of the cage.  Alternately poignant and heartwarming, this is a great fic for a rainy day.

In tribute to World Mental Health Day (that our wonderful cast and crew supported yesterday), have a few of my favorite J2 fics dealing with various struggles -- and successes.

A Million Points Of Light by maddys_slash
A million points of light are ascending toward the sky. I'll always see you

Gunpoint by felisblanco
Jensen got his childhood stolen away from him when he was ten years old. Along with his memory, his voice and every emotion that wasn’t fear, hatred or anger. Question is, can Jared help him get any of it back? And more importantly, does Jensen really want him to?

Hold the Whipped Cream by dimpled_sammy
International Best Selling Author Jensen Ackles is all kinds of specific with the details of his life. He likes privacy, writing, and coffee; black, no sugar, hold the cream. He’s become a fixture at the local coffee shop, writing from his table every day for the past two years. His vices include routine, neatness, and structure. Jensen doesn’t do messes. Then there is Jared, recent post-grad basket case, who’s been coming in every day for caffeine he doesn’t need and bringing the increasing disaster in his life with him. Jared is a mess in all the ways Jensen is not and so Jensen offers to help Jared in the only way he knows how: by buying Jared a cup of coffee.

In a Mirror Distorted and Indistinct by felisblanco
They keep calling him beautiful. Pretty. “Come on. Look this way. Give us a smile, Jensen.” He smiles and blinks against the flashes, fighting the urge to lower his eyes, to hide the blush burning under layers of makeup. Sweat runs down his back, his hands tremble.

He’s not pretty, not beautiful. He’s small and weak and pathetic and one day they’re all gonna figure it out. One day…

In From the Cold by ladyjanelly
One thing about working in a free clinic, Jared thinks, is that work is never boring. You never know what'll come in from the cold on a night like this.

My New Life is Waiting by neros_violin
Jared and his daughter Hannah are used to depending only on each other. Their life at the cabin on the lake isn’t exciting, but it’s safe. Until the night Hannah goes outside, drawn by the soft sounds of a guitar. While Jared is drawn to the music, the guitar player is too close for comfort.

But something in the music inexorably attracts Jared and his little girl, and they finally reach out to their new neighbor. Jensen seems like the perfect guy, and he is the perfect guy. But like Jared, he has secrets to keep and reasons not to trust. Can they move beyond their pasts to make a life together, beyond the isolated shores of the lake?

See: Life by silentpoetry1
At the orders of his psychiatrist, Jensen is forced to leave the city and move in with his aunt in a remote and laid back country town. Out amongst the endless horizons and suffocating world, his Bipolar Disorder, questionable love of psychedelics, broken past, and his strange fear of and infatuation with them seems out of place. He is out of place. But all this may change when he meets a boy named Jared with startling jackal eyes, the type of person he never looked for, but perhaps he always needed. Jensen just needs to get out of his wrecked head first.

Trip-Hop Verse by minchout
This is the story of two people who find each other and try to make it work. Featuring Bipolar!Jensen and Artist!Jared.

underneath the weight of it all by _mournthewicked
Jared stopped trying to fit all the broken pieces of himself back together a long time ago. But then he meets Jensen, and he thinks it might be time to try again.

I know my week passed as of yesterday. Last week was a crazy week for me I left my job that I had been at for 12 years, and starting a new one next week. So my theme for this week is new beginnings with new co-workers. Hope this is okay wendy :)

But We'll Always Have Our Vending Machines by cherie_morte http://infatuated-ink.livejournal.com/44999.html

AU: Jensen is the new math teacher at Stimson High. On his first day, he meets Jared Padalecki, an English teacher with a killer smile and a little too much time on his hands. Jared is pretty much perfect except for one thing: Jensen has no idea if they’re flirting or just friends.

(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To by
nyxocity http://nyxocity.livejournal.com/126785.html?style=mine

Jensen thinks maybe going to a party and getting drunk with his new co-workers seems like a bad idea. Especially when one of them is Jared--Jensen's gorgeous new co-worker that he's got it bad for. Somehow, it ends up turning out to be the best idea ever.

Whiskey River, You're All I've Got
by akintay http://akintay.livejournal.com/128662.html

Jensen's life revolves around The Whiskey Sour, the bar he inherited from his grandfather nine years ago. But with too few customers and not nearly enough profit, things are taking a turn for the worse. And then Jared Padalecki walks into Jensen's life and changes everything.

The Dallas Deception
by aynslee http://aynslee.livejournal.com/22724.html

Jared’s job as a legal assistant in a large Dallas law firm is fairly routine, until he finds himself working for attorney Jensen Ackles
28 September 2015 @ 01:08 am
A lot of my rec themes are inspired by what I recently read, and this is another one. Because even if the world goes to hell, you want the boys to be on the right side. :-)
(And then, as usual, my memory totally failed to come up with more than what's below, so if you have some recs for a nice resistance/revolution/rebellion, do share.)

Water Is Moving Underground (Jeff/Jared) by lazy_daze
A strange incident has extinguished most of mankind and left the survivors with special abilities that most are still struggling to fully understand. When Jeff meets Jared, he immediately has a premonition that Jared is important. They just both don't know why.

Palladium (Jensen/Jared) zubeneschamali
Earth gets invaded by the Sl'kH, an alien race, and within a year, the leader of the resistance, Jensen Ackles gets captured. A few years later, Jared hopes to help rescue Jensen and get him back to his former self.

The Texas Resistance (Jeff/Jensen/Jared) by pigeongirl99
Jeff, Jensen and Jared each play their own role in fighting for the freedom of Texas. And in the end they have each other.

The language of waves and radiation (Jensen/Jared) by moveablehistory
Field report #00325-DB: Investigating Jensen and Jared's involvement in the distribution of classified information following the avian influenza pandemic.
[Note: I was contemplating whether I should include this story, since the author's journal has been deleted, and the original website for the story doesn't work 100% anymore. But the masterpost is still there, and you can read the story if you jump through some small hoops. Just fyi.]
20 September 2015 @ 11:52 am
Rowena is another Supernatural character who was planned for a short arc, but who has become a part of our ensemble because of the incredible charismatic performance by Ruth Connell. And this has also seen her appear in some great fics and some especially hot ones with Sam! Let me know of any other recs you have!

Cypress and Larkspur by sconesandtextingandmurder
When Sam and Rowena go after Crowley together, Rowena shows Sam another side of herself.

Enough is Enough by firesign10
Hot hate sex between Sam and Rowena.

We had an agreement, Giant
From the spn_summergen challenege, artist not yet revealed but this painting of Rowena was too delicious not to include!

How Dark Dynasty Should've Ended by tikistitch
A wonderful crackfic that fixes that horrid Dark Dynasty ending!

The Witch and the Nerd by wuya626
Charlie and Rowena take some time out from decoding!
13 September 2015 @ 06:23 pm
Ten years ago TODAY, the pilot aired on television...which makes the fact that the ELEVENTH season premieres in about a month UNREAL. Remember when everyone was worried about a season two? I have SO MUCH EMOTION thinking back on my past decade with this show (and how different my life would be without it--all thanks to fandom).

In honor of this anniversary, and my never-ending nostalgia, today's fic recs are VINTAGE. As in--the MOST vintage the fandom has to offer. Everything listed here was posted in SEPTEMBER, 2005. This is where fandom began! Sit back, enjoy, and think about where you were ten years ago today. :)

(I also noticed that my anniversary posting recs here is October, 2006, so I'm not far behind the show! :D)

Anger Management by xkatjafx (PG-13, Dean/Sam)
See title.

Ghosts and Demons by estrella30 (PG, Dean/Sam)
Sam was pretty sure he would have tanked the interview anyway.

Just A Dream by gravi_girl123 (NC-17, Dean/Sam)
In which Sam dreams, remembers, and contemplates Dean.

Reunion by janedavitt (R, Dean/Sam)
The hiss of the shower filled the untidy, cluttered room and Sam listened to it carefully, his hands locked together in his lap, shaking slightly, picturing what was happening.
The first Wincest ever recorded?!?!

NOW I WANT TO GO AND READ ALLLLL of the fic written at the very beginning--when none of us quite knew what this show would become!
31 August 2015 @ 10:48 pm
There's been a resurgence of amazing sci-fi fics from the community, and with all this excitement from NASA's new photos of Pluto, the stars are definitely feeling a little bit more within reach. Time for another space-themed rec! Complete with space science, intergalactic intrigue, alien-monster fighting and boys falling for each other in zero-gravity environments.

1) Chasing Darkness by ashtraythief (J2, NC-17)
Discharged from the military after the war and unable to find a regular job, Jensen and Dani end up on JD’s mining planet Wora. It’s one of the most hostile environments in the Old Galaxy, but the pay is astronomical. The job sounds easy enough: protect the miners. While battling the demons of his past, Jensen meets Jared, a beautiful, sought after companion, who is isolated by his own secrets. Jared had come to Wora, dragged by Chad, with the need to make some serious money. It doesn’t take Jensen long to figure out Jared’s secret and he has to decide how much he’s willing to risk to protect him.

2) Fuck Me to the Moon by thursdaysisters (J2, NC-17, A/B/O)
Alpha!Jared has a noble new mission in the name of science : impregnating Astronaut!Jensen in space.

3) All Poachers Will Be Shot On Site by dragonspell (JDM/JA, NC-17)
Jeff's sick to death of visiting aliens and other captains trying to make off with his chief engineer.

4) Changing Phases by hybridshade (J2, NC-17)
The world is already decades deep into the New Space Era and inter-galaxial travel is no longer the next frontier. But when otherworldly aggressors prove to be too much of a threat, the Earth has no choice but to close itself off, raising an invisible wall between it and the universe at large.

Jared and Jensen are products of their time, affected as much by what's below the stratosphere as what's above, and they both fight in their own ways to make their mark within the Earth's military forces. However, as they soon come to learn, the greatest threats of all might not necessarily be the ones from up there in the sky.

5) The Laws of Refraction by tebtosca (J2, past JDM/JA, NC-17)
Following the assassination of their rival fathers, Princes Jared and Jensen are forced into marriage to stop full-out intergalactic war. Yet, things don't go quite as planned when the space pirate ex-boyfriend of one of the bridegrooms decides to stage an impromptu "rescue" mission that sets off a series of events that have consequences far beyond a single wedding ceremony. After all, no one said space diplomacy was easy.

6) Into the Black by ephermeralk (J2, NC-17, dragon!traits)
After 18 years aboard a spaceship that he calls home, Jared’s sure of three things: candy should be hoarded, breathing takes effort, and the love of his life Jensen Ackles doesn’t like him. These simple facts of life don’t seem to change, even after Jared finds out he’s Jensen’s mate.

7) To the Stars and Back by cleflink (J2, NC-17)
90% of the human race thinks the Solar System is an alien free zone. They're all wrong, but luckily there are people around who make sure that what they don't known can't hurt them. Jensen was one of these people until his job got axed, but he and his Earth boyfriend, Jared, are about to have the chance to change that. Question is, how will a relationship based primarily on clever banter and really hot sex fare when they're dealing with a conspiracy that threatens the safety of the entire world?

8) Too Pretty For This Universe by ashtraythief (J2, NC-17, warnings: rape/noncon)
It all starts on a little prison planet at the ass of the universe: Jensen is pretty and Jared can’t resist. So when Jensen has to spend a night in the stocks, Jared decides to watch over him and finally get his hands on that beautiful ass.

(And though it was recced in this comm previously, I need to mention Keepsake by indysaur (J2, R) because gosh. Gosh. It's a Wall-E AU that hits straight to the heart).

Because my first big Supernatural kink was the fact that I was shipping Wincest to begin with and my second was the boys being kinda, sorta, maybe evil, I give you my boys-as-the-antichrist-or-a-demon recs!

A Threefold Path to Redemption by rei_c - (Sam/many people but endgame Dean, 117k, NC-17) Sam finds a way to keep Dean from going to hell: he'll go in his brother's place. He knows it's going to be bad and that he'll emerge changed. He never knew how much.
Major warnings on this for dub-con (see author's more specific notes on this in her masterpost), gore, and graphic torture.  That said, even I-the-squeamish couldn't metaphorically put this down.  Rei-c always writes amazingly complex and beautiful fics, and this story (and the verse that follows it) are among my all time favorites.

Let Your Sins Be Strong by xzombiexkittenx - (Sam/Dean, estimated to be 20k, NC-17) The world’s a mess and Sam just needs to rule it. Dean’s not quite so on board with this plan.
Normally the first fic I rec to anyone who mentions Boy King/Antichrist!Sam.  Split into "Then" and "Now" sections, the story does a beautiful job of showing both Sam and Dean's sides, and making you really see the limitations of your narrator.  Besides, it's funny, sexy, and at times emotional, with possibly the best introduction of Lucifer I've ever read in SPN fic.

To The End by sometimesophie - (Sam/Dean, 23k, NC-17) The world is ending, Sam has turned, and Dean stops running.
I love this fic's use of the psychic children, as well as the way we are kept guessing along with Dean as to what's going on with Sam.  When all is finally revealed, it's immensely satisfying and really emphasizes the strength of the boys' bond.  Warnings for dub-con on this one.

Fortress by glasslogic - (Sam/Dean, 94k, NC-17) Seven years ago Dean Winchester paid his due to the Crossroads Demon and fell into Hell. Grief almost killed Sam, a demon blood addiction came closer, but he rid himself of demonic attachments and spent years building himself a prison where no demon can set foot, determined to take himself out of the apocalyptic game that had crushed his family. But each year on Earth is an eternity in Hell, and now Dean is back. Angry, powerful, and demonic; he has a plan to wreck vengeance on those who destroyed his life. A plan that will shake the foundations of the Pit and send shock-waves into Heaven. Dragging a reluctant Sam in his wake, will Dean manage to pull it off before the combined legions of Hell get their act together enough to stop him?
Demon!Dean!  Also an interesting take on what might have happened had Sam figured out Ruby's plan.  Like my previous rec, this fic keeps you guessing for quite a while about what Dean's doing and what his motivations are, making it (and its sequels) a fun read for me.  Warnings again on dub-con, of something close to the fuck-or-die variety.

The Dragon That Speaks Like a Lamb by randomfandom93 - (Sam/Dean, 9.5k, R) Hell got it wrong. Sam's not the Antichrist after all... Dean is. Or course, Sam's more than willing to play the part and front for his brother.
I just love the CONCEPT of this fic and the author did a great job with it.  There's a bit at the end that cracks me up every time and I find myself returning to this fic a lot just because it is so unique.

hell is fine this time of year by jukeboxhound - (Sam/Dean, 6k, R) Demon!Dean talks Sam into the role of Boy King.
The opening four paragraphs of this fully create the author's wonderful version of demon!Dean and just suck you right in.  From complaining about how fake tv blood spatter looks to talking Sam into becoming the King of Hell, this Dean is such a treat to read.
