starrylizard: Headshot of Ruby from Demons smiling (NT - Reading (Dean))
( Jun. 14th, 2014 01:57 pm)
As I'm just landing back in to Supernatural fandom, I'm re-reading fave fics as I rewatch the show. I figure I'll be reccing a few here to pass on my "old" fandom faves, while I find me some new ones.

Just re-read the stellar The Lee by [livejournal.com profile] pdragon76
Author Summary: Wherever you go, there you are.
(mostly PG-13, Het — Sam/OFC, Dean, Bobby, Ellen, post WIAWSNB S2)

This fic, people! This fic! If you like Dean!whump, protective!Sam, stubborn-mule!Dean, Sam!visions, amazingly real original characters, Case!fic to blow your mind and keep you guessing, and a fic that slots into canon (between episodes people!) like it was meant to be there, like your brain is all OMG we've made it to that scene now... THEN READ IT! It's 10 chapters and an epilogue of awesome writing that belongs in a book store making money!
Vid rec: Bite Hard by [livejournal.com profile] jesuit24
Fandom: Chuck
Just adorable! I love how the vid ramps up along with the music and captures the general style of the show. :)

Fic rec: Ghosts, spies and campfire lies by [livejournal.com profile] caffienekitty
Fandoms: Chuck/Supernatural
All the voices are pitch perfect, it's funny and not quite what I expected and a lot more. If you've ever wondered what would happen if these worlds collided, read this. You won't be disappointed. It's also a nice long read. :)

Fic rec: Under Darkening Skies by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat
Fandoms: Buffy/Supernatual
Brilliant characterisation for both fandoms. A cool plot, with silly one-liners, conspiracies, shady government types and too many Slayerettes even for Dean to handle. And I love that there's some Willow/Dean action - a pairing I'd certainly never seen considered before and that works nicely here. Here's hoping for a sequel. :)

We Mortals Be by [livejournal.com profile] debbil66
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG 13 (language, violence)
Warnings: Spoilers through 5X3; written entirely before 5X4
Genre: gen, h/c
Summary: Angry fairies cast Sam and Dean into a deadly forest where they come face to face with what it really means to be brothers.


This is the best fic I have read in ages. Seriously! It's adorable and touching and it really examines the brothers relationship in the past and the present and addresses the issues in a way that I wish this season could. And the Sam h/c makes me wanna hug him and just... yeah. If you read one fic this season, you have to read this.

Excerpt: It’s too tempting. Sam can’t help himself from scooting a little closer to this fifteen-year-old kid who loves him for who he was and doesn’t know yet to hate him for who he’s going to become.

Between the Lines of Fear and Blame by [livejournal.com profile] faye_dartmouth (Gen)

Summary: In the hunt for Lucifer, Sam is hurt and Dean has to embark on a quest to find his brother in more ways than one.

It's THE most amazing Sam character study ever written. It takes in all the major events in his life, showing how they shaped him, drove him to his decisions for better or worse... and you see it all through Dean's eyes and dawning understanding. It's wonderful writing. Ever so insightful!

Starting From The End Of Times by [livejournal.com profile] anniehow
RATING: R gen, pre-slash Dean/Castiel
SPOILERS: For the Season 4 finale, and not beyond
CHARACTERS: Sam, Dean, Bobby, Castiel, Zacharia
SUMMARY: Post 4.22. What might have happened after the "to be continued" whiteout. With extra helpings of h/c.

You should all go read this. It's finished, but being posted over a few days. The first of five parts is up now. It's got bunches of h/c, Castiel being awesome and a woobie, Zachariah being a douchebag (you can hear him speaking) and there is a plotty plot. You'll love it, I promise.

It does also have an unrequited (except in a dream-type context sort of thing) Dean/Castiel overtone going on. *points at rating* Just to be warning people who don't read any slash. But the actual plot is gen, there's just that strong overtone in there at times.

Not Store Bought by [livejournal.com profile] pheebs1 (Gen, 2376 words)
Author summary: Castiel is buying the Winchesters an Xmas present. This is not part of the mission.
The summary pretty much says it all. If you want to feel warm and fuzzy, go read. :)


Run by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes (gen, PG, 500 words)
This is a brotherly moment, but it's got such a lovely descriptive style that it sucks you right in and just made me smile. Ah boys!


Unexpected company by [livejournal.com profile] dotfic (Gen, PG-13, preseries, 7200 words)
Author Summary: The one where John has wings, Sam is a toddler, Dean is seven, and Bobby is in way over his head.
This one has perfect characterisation for Bobby and John. A joy to read and nice to see a wing!fic where John's the one with the wing problem.


How about you walk a mile ... by [livejournal.com profile] tahirire (PG -13, 1,101 words, Gen, Sam, Uriel, Dean cameo, Spoilers: For 4.10.)
This is just awesome! I don't want to give the story away, but Sam vs Uriel... Creepy, yet satisfying as well. I kind of found myself thinking: I hope it happens.


I Like the Girls with the Boom by [livejournal.com profile] innie_darling (R, Dean/OFC, pre-series)
There's not a lot of R in here. Just for the record. This OFC is just so real and the story had me smiling like a loon. So sweet. Het fics are often so hit or miss in this fandom... but this one is a definite hit. Love it! :)

In this theatre by [livejournal.com profile] ultraviolet9a (SPN, Gen, PG-13, Castiel POV) - I liked the idea of Castiel exploring humanity, trying to understand it. It's very thought-provoking and nicely written.

Figurative Hell and Literal high Water by Tipper (SGA, Gen, H/C) - Rodney’s desperate to save his team, and Keller’s just trying to keep up, on a planet where hurricanes can last for days. Another Tipper adventure! I do love the build-up of the friendship and respect between Keller and McKay. Very nicely done, kept me on a cliff-hanger and had me feeling warm and fuzzy by the end. A nice long read and well worth it.

Do Winchesters Dream Of Electric Impalas? by [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic (SPN, AU, gen) - Dean was made to be a Big Brother. Brilliant AU! If you get the title reference to Philip K. Dick, then you'll know where this AU is coming from. If not, read it and just enjoy. I certainly did. :)

Angels Above While You Sleep by [livejournal.com profile] smilla02 (SPN, Gen, PG13) - Mary never forgets. This coda to 4.3 is just really touching in a sad way, with lovely imagery.

Singular and Plural by [livejournal.com profile] night_spear1287 (Gen, PG13) - There have been a lot of Mystery-spot codas and I haven't read them all by a long shot, but so far this one of the few I actually like. Why? Because Sam doesn't break down in tears and cry in an emo fashion and Dean doesn't force him to talk about it. In short, it feels more like the way I see the brothers' relationship in the show. I particularly like the little detail that brings you back to the title.

I haven't been reading as much lately and, when I have, I've been branching out of my usual zone a little, so it's been harder to find the good stuff. That said, I have two recs:

Lifelines by [livejournal.com profile] jinxed_wood (PG, for language and Armageddon, Characters:Martha Jones, Derek Reese, crossover: Doctor Who/Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Gen)
Summary: Martha needs to spread the message... and, in order to do that, she needs to stay alive (set during the year-that-wasn't).

This fic just blew me away. I love both shows and both characters and I'm just amazed at the way the author keeps them both so in character, right down to their speech patterns and the description is wonderful. I could just see the whole fic in my mind's eye!! She's also managed to merge the two ideas wonderfully and give Martha even more reasons to have made the descision she did. It's just a fabulously plotted, wonderfully executed fic!! One of the best I've read this year!! :D

Amidst the Wars of Elements by [livejournal.com profile] destina (PG, Supernatural)

I'm gonna warn right off the bat that this one is technically (PG) Sam/Dean, but I read it (I think off a rec) and to me the whole story is gen until about a paragraph from the end where there is a kiss (that I totally pretended never happened). It's worth ignoring it (if you're a non-wincest person like me), because the fic is actually very clever and it's entirely gen until the very strange kissing at the end.

Having said that (and hoping the author won't mind me saying that), the plot and description is genius. I love the idea. I love the way I was completely hooked in. It's a look at one way Sam might try to save Dean from hell and it's one that would never happen in the show, so I enjoyed it all the more. That's what fanfiction is all about.
