A couple of delightful fics which I've thoroughly enjoyed. Completely different from each other, like, well, ponies and movie stars, but both equally satisfying and happy-making.

Gone With The Wendigo by [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple. SPN, gen, crossover with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, PG-13, 26000 words.

Summary: Sam and Dean go into the New Hampshire wilderness to investigate a new case: whole groups of hikers are getting trapped in freak blizzards and then encased in solid ice. When a blizzard hits them on the trail, they take shelter in a nearby cave for the night, only to awake to find themselves transformed into brightly colored ponies and trapped in a whole new world where zebras speak in rhyme, ponies run apple orchards, good times and positive thinking are encouraged, and friendship? Friendship is magic.

This is crack, but if you've read the author's epic Dimensions and Veticals, you'd know that [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple's cracks are not just cracks. They're cracks with substance and they make you feel and think just as much as they make you laugh. You don't need any prior knowledge of MLP to get this story. I didn't. Knew of MLP I mean. So go on, do read this. You know you want to!

Moonshine Lullaby by [livejournal.com profile] akadougal and [livejournal.com profile] tiptoe39. SPN AU, Dean/Cas, NC17, 38788 words.

Summary: Dean Winchester sweeps up after the stars in 1920s Hollywood. He and the actors on the set are worlds apart -- and that includes his brother, the famous Samuel C. Winchester. But when an accident brings Dean face to face with a matinee idol going by the name of Jimmy Novak, he's caught up in a love story right out of a movie script... until his estranged brother comes back into the picture, bringing drama of his own.

Set in the golden era of Hollywood, this swept me off my feet, totally and completely. Written with parallels to canon cleverly and seamlessly woven into the story - I was enthralled right from the very first paragraph. And it felt like I was holding my breath the entire time I was reading it - for fear of missing a word or a thought - I know, totally silly, but it felt like it, that was how immersed I was in the story. A keeper, this story, one which I'm going to read over and over again.
