A couple of fics that I've enjoyed tremendously. Two stories in which Dean was trying to find his way home, Dean the protector in one, the other the protected.

Other Worlds Than These by [ profile] mollyamory. Sam/Dean, adult, 15,500 words.
Summary : Dean is lost in a barren desert landscape, his past and his identity stripped from him in the transition between worlds. Guided by a deep internal pull toward a man he only sees in his dreams, Dean crosses the desert alone, on foot, until he finds a strange boy named Sam living in the ruins of an ancient city...

Adult!Dean meets young!Sam!! If you loved that special moment Dean had when he met young Sam in Dark Side Of The Moon, you're going to love this. With whiffs of the Gunslinger and the boy Jake from Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, this is a magnificent story that'll pull you in, in and in.

The Land Of Unlikeness by [ profile] aesc. Dean/Castiel, PG-13/R, 11,176 words.
Summary : Once his brain stops turning circles in his skull, he tries to take stock. His gun is gone, and so is Ruby's knife. His body's a cacophony of aches and pains, small, stinging cuts where the sand has worked in. Give him twelve hours and he'll be a walking bruise and muscles that won't work right. Narrowing his eyes, Dean chances a look down the slope and figures, give him twenty-four and he'll be dead.

And oh, what can I say about this lovely, lovely story except I love the love Cas had for Dean, one in which he was ready to give up everything to save the person he was given charge of.

You know how LJ has been wonky quite a lot lately? It was during one of those times, I was adding to my ( ever-growing ) To Read List fics, I clicked "save" and what do you know, LJ truncated almost half of my list. And the ones Frank ate were my J2s and Sam/Deans leaving my SPN gens, LotR, Downton Abbey and Dean/Cas fics intact. Lol was Frank trying to tell me something?

Speaking of Downton Abbey, here's a couple of fics that I've read recently, and enjoyed :
Precipice by [ profile] schubertiana, a 2000+ words of Thomas/William UST and an insight into what made Thomas Thomas ( PG ).
Bandaging by [ profile] ariadnes_string, 1.8K, PG13Thomas/Edward in which Thomas made bandaging an art, and a sensual one at that!.

And I read this absolutely adorable and cute Dean/Cas, The Owl and the Pussycat by [ profile] lupinus67, PG. Not sure where and how the owl came into the story, it was probably, metaphorically, Cas, but anyways, Dean was turned into a kitten and he was the epitome of cute but - he hated Cas. And Chuck said Cas needed to be taught a lesson, and Sam tried to cope. A total howl!

Dean, it turns out, is disgustingly adorable as a cat. Not that Sam would ever say as much to Dean in human or cat form, but it’s true. The crux of it is Dean’s not just a cat: he’s a kitten. Sam’s not sure how (Dean is over thirty), but when he got turned from man to feline, he became a kitten.

An adorable strawberry blonde tabby kitten with bright green eyes, a short tail, and a chubby middle. And bowed back legs. Sam will take it to his grave, but the bowlegged waddle of a chubby kitten is probably the cutest thing he has ever seen.

ETA : More Owl and the Pussycat here.

Losing Your Appeal by [ profile] pavonine. J2 AU, R, 9000 words.
Summary : What happens to a dream deferred? A road trip, a kidney thief, a little too much glamour, and the realization that being brave isn't easy.

I have so much love for this charming, quirky little story. Jared and Jensen in an established relationship, so in tune with each other and so secure in their relationship that they can casually exchange insults and bodily injuries - real insults, real injuries! There really is no specific storyline here, it's just them being them, written in such a way that it fills me with much happiness.

The Men Who Stare at Croats by [ profile] twoskeletons, supernatural. Zachariah, Michael. Gen. 1400 words.
Summary Set between 5x03 and 5x04. How the zombie apocalypse was born.

A rib-cracking hilarious look at how the events in The End came about. It had me laughing and laughing from start to finish. That Micheal was a devious angel indeed!

And lastly, a totally delightful, 679 words of Dean/Cas PG-15 which immediately had me going back to watch Free To Be You And Me.

Off The Menu by [ profile] cupidsbow. Now wouldn't you like to know what the title is all about? *g*
layne67: (j2 looks over shoulder)
Four J2 fics that I've read, and thoroughly enjoyed, over the last couple of weeks, three of them from last year's [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge. I'm still working my way through them and the only reason that I'm so late ( this year's Big Bangs are already around the corner! ) is that I"m not familiar with the authors hence the delay. But oh my, these are all so good, the Big Bangs plus the non-BB one written just recently. Atmospheric, engaging writings, lyrical and dream-like, they all made me smile and laugh and cry and weep.

Thespis by [ profile] nicslash. J2 AU, NC-17, 36,414 words.
Summary : Jared is a makeup artist and is hired for a new movie based in Vancouver. Jensen plays the part of a hardcore, punk-rock star, but he has a real-life attitude problem. Unfortunately, Jared can’t figure out why and still finds Jensen attractive. They have to work alone together; long hours and long days, in small quarters of the makeup trailer. During that time, Jared discovers the actor’s secret and wants nothing more than to break away the protective mask Jensen hides behind.

Here Burns A Candle Out by [ profile] erufic. J2 AU, R, 24,600 words.
Summary : WWI steampunk AU. Aeronaut and part-time spy Jensen Ackles has every intention of leaving the spy service after his last job in Europe during the Great War ends poorly. Instead, he finds himself sent to a resort outside the city to recuperate, where he meets Jared, an eccentric ghost hunter who is determined to unlock the secrets of a nearby haunted house. Unfortunately for Jensen, things at the resort aren't quite what they seem, and when matters take a sinister turn, Jensen discovers just how impossible it is for anyone to truly ever leave the world of espionage.

On the long and weary road by [ profile] pigeongirl99. Jensen-centric with Jensen/Jared, Jensen/Kane, Jensen/Jeff, rating 18.
Summary : Set between circa 1919 - 1924. Takes place in Texas, Arkansas, New Orleans, New York, and Chicago. It's the jazz era, and Jensen is traveling the road from place to place, discovering the music of the era as he travels.

Olive Tree Bay by [ profile] arabia764. J2 CWRPS, NC-17, 16,325 words.
Summary : They met on the set of Supernatural, everyone knows that. This is the story of the rest of their lives.

On another note, I'm absolutely dreading this. The End Of All Ends. Someone hold my hand, please.
layne67: (spn castiel)
I'm about three-quarter way through the first season of 24, waiting and wondering when Misha was going to make his appearance, when he finally, finally did. I must have burst an eardrum or two, I squeed so loud! He was not listed in the guest list so I totally didn't expect it when he appeared in the end scene, all long-haired and badassed. And nekkid!Misha! I prefer his Castiel/Jimmy look to Alexis but still cute! And too, too adorable to be an assasin. I kept expecting him to zap Jack lol.

And speaking of Castiel, I've been dipping into the Castiel fandom ( yup, it feels a bit like a whole new fandom since, except for a few familiar names here and there, the good people there are total strangers ) and have been enjoying the fics written by new writers ( new to me that is ).

Three fics that I've enjoyed ( two gens, one Sam/Dean sans Castiel ):

In God's Country by [ profile] lassiterfics. Gen, PG13. What Mary said.
Read it because it's beautiful and amazing and breath-taking and perfect. I like to think that *is* how it was - the story of Dean and his guardian angel.

Redux by [ profile] baylorsr. Gen, PG. SPN/ Criminal Minds crossover. Agent Hotchner has been wanting to meet the Winchester family for a long time.
This fic is disturbing ( in a good way! ). Hotchner's conversation with Sam and what he eventually made Sam do made me want to hit the back button several times. And his matter-of-fact analysis of the Winchesters' sent chills up my spine because it sounded like everything did happen exactly like he said. And the ending - totally mind-blowing.

And lastly. That’s not a cross look, it’s a sign of life by [ profile] de_nugis. Sam/Dean NC17, 2250 words. A perfect antidote to Redux because it's ridiculously adorable and funny and hot and boys being snarky with each other, just the way I love them. A feel good fic!
layne67: (spn i've got you)
Four similarly-titled fics, which kind of tickled me a little, but then, what title could be more appropriate for the boys but that? They're all awesome, and to quote EFW, they're all about Dean in pain, Dean in agony, Dean in pain and agony in his boxers, and Protective Introspective Sam. ::GLEE::


1. He Ain't Heavy by [ profile] pdragon76. Gen, rating M ( for general potty mouthedness ), 6500 words.
Summary : A bronchial Dean stumbles across a job that brings up more between the boys than your average lugey.
Just read this one last night, and I'm totally floored by the author's sheer brilliance with words. With reference to what happened in Duluth when Sam shot Dean, this is them on a case that's eerily similar to what happened to them when Sam wasn't himself. Guilt-ridden!Sam and snarky! ( and hurty of course ) Dean at their best.

2. He Ain't Heavy, He's My Idiot Brother by [ profile] felisblanco. Gen, PG13, 1846 words.
Summary : Dean gets roofied. Sam saves him.
Absolutely hilarious, this will make you laugh from start to finish. A must-read, if you hadn't already!

3. He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother by [ profile] elohvee. Sam/Dean, R, 1701 words.
Summary : Sam gets Dean out of hell and takes care of a broken!Dean.
Angst with a capital A.

4. He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother by EFW. What the author said above *points*

And of course, this post won't be complete with *this* vid clip. How I miss those SamandDean precious, precious moments together. Will we ever get to see them like that again?
