It's just easier not to post, and people get busy, but I figure since I still check in on the flist daily I should maybe contribute some words as well.

My flist has certainly gotten quieter. I remember when I could not keep up! Primarily that was the SPN fandom - my S&H friends were never that loud on LJ. S&H for me was a yahoo groups thing, though the [livejournal.com profile] starsky_hutch LJ comm helped me migrate here.

I also remember the frustration of trying to download ALL THOSE SPN stories, and clicking what occasionally amounted to a ridiculous number of entries and continued entries to get at a whole verse. Do you know I used to copy/paste stories in MS word and save them as docs? I bet more than a few of us did. I mean, I have tons of stories still on my computer in doc format. So much work! I tried to keep up, which was impossible really.

Before LJ, I was immersed in S&H stories, and by God I PRINTED those out. Still have a bookshelf full of the printouts, and then another shelf of the printed zines (including my own two) in my bedroom.

Unrelated, but: SPN's Jeremy Carver is such a disappointing shower runner for me. I was afraid of him after I couldn't for the life of me keep interest in the last show he ran (Being Human), though I loved the original British version (first three seasons, anyway). Sucks because of gems like SPN Christmas ep and the like. He still can write some killer episodes on occasion (I loved S8 ender ep). So anyway, when I get an episode I really enjoy as opposed to it being merely watchable, it makes me happy. I enjoyed, so much, the Sam POV we got last episodes in "Book of the Damned" and "The Werther Project." I like how Sam and Dean have been really together and in the lovely, unhealthily codependent relationship I know and love.

Oh, story rec: The Outlaw Torn by LaughableLament. Old school first-time with plenty of UST until it's, well, resolved:) Expertly written in my opinion, classic in all the best ways of good Wincest fiction. Killer Dean voice, Sammy the irrestible tease and always, always, the clever, irritating little brother.

Another thing: I looked forward with great anticipation to the premiere of Orphan Black, a thing that was handily trashed when my phobia regarding eyes/eye damage sent me into a panicked fit. Made me pretty sick and upset that day. I try to avoid seeing that stuff, but that shit don't come with warnings.

Whew, plenty of rambling! I guess I posted then, yeah?

Very pleased to have finished my [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema story - I saw one of the movies prompted and couldn't resist, which is a thing made of awesomeness, because I can resist a lot lately (not necessarily a good thing - it's primarily because I feel unwell). The Hunger was one of my favorite movies in the 80s and I'm happy someone thought of prompting it.

AND I busted my SPN RPS cherry - I'm never all that interested in writing RPF though I read it. Honestly I only wrote the Js because Sam and Dean Winchester didn't fit in my version of the story, but I'm kind of pleased about it anyway.

I have a bit where Jensen wears a leather harness and I'm a little nervous that I referenced it wrong, or something about how I utilized it in the story is wrong somehow- I'm not really up on leather clothing and bondage and/or S&M gear. As a matter of fact I'm ignorant (as you can probably tell by how I described it!), but it felt right to put it in this scene.

In conclusion: happy I finished it, and looking forward to posting, which begins the last week of October. I finished with plenty of time, go me! (Except it COULD be me procrasting for tiresomely unknown and stubborn reasons with finishing like, 2,000-4,000 words in the final chapter of my first book of my original fiction story, in which case, not so go! me). But whatever.

PS: I have a neurologist that has prescribed in-home injections of Solu-Medrol - anybody have experience with it? A nurse is coming next week. I need something, but this shit makes me a little scared. I mean, it could really help - and I can take prednisone okay. and I have inhalers, so I'm not unfamiliar with stimulants. I guess I'll read whatever they sent me (just got the med delivery today) and see, but still. Anything resembling ephedrine is very very bad for me - makes me flip out, which makes me worry if other stimulants might do the same.

If you like dark and you like well-written, this is for you:) It's short, AU, gen. For all that it's a supernatural situation, the emotions are very human. I  think it's well crafted and was completely caught up in this short story. The end particularly resonated wiith me.

from the author, [livejournal.com profile] duckondebut:

AU after 1.18: Something Wicked. References events that’ve happened s2 through s5.

Summary: Sam and Dean are immortal now. Yeah. It’s that simple, and that complicated.

Warnings: Vague general series spoilers, some swearing. AND GUYS. This is very dark. Torture, violence, references to suicide and suicidal tendencies are contained within.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

I have been into some weird little shows, many rather obscure. SPN might be the only truly large fandom I've participated in - a different experience altogether, and with so many talented writers at first I found it intimidating to post stories. Pretty much from the start, I've seen Sam and Dean as my OTP.

Something for a large fandom/pairing/character, then, is this SPN story, Sam/Dean:

Diamond Dogs is a short, kind of stylized piece, hopefully with some strongly evoked visuals. Prompt was "werewolfism - one turns and takes the other down."

The Other End

The Other End (What’s Left of You That I Don’t Have)
story by [livejournal.com profile] kassidy62
(Wincest/R-rated, 11,500 words)

Summary: AU wherein Ruby doesn't betray Sam and the Apocalypse is averted. It begins after Sam escapes the panic room in "When the Levee Breaks" during Season Four, picking up immediately after the fight between Sam and Dean at the hotel.
Warnings: non-con (not between Sam and Dean), gore, violence, unfortunate use of healing cock
AN: A couple of scenes mirror dialogue from canon. Sam has slight kinetic abilities.
My first time doing spn_illuminated.
It was wonderful to meet and talk to Vail about the story, and I’m very happy I got to write a piece with her lovely work in mind.

part 2

my bones

Jun. 2nd, 2011 11:18 pm

My bones feel all exposed. I bet that doesn't make sense. Like you can see my insides. I need to burrow or something. I need armor. And I hate my neighbors.

Also, I started reading A Monster By Any Other Name (which I and others just call Freak Camp) and I'm horrified and enthralled and sort of ... grieving.  I sucked down most of the first part today. It's long. Nothing I love better than a good, long story. It's not an easy read. It's powerful. Terrible, unimaginable things happen to one of the Winchesters. I love how both the guys are written so far. The love!

I don't understand how things will ever be fixed.

Part 2 just started going up and I'm grieving already, reading THE FIRST CHAPTER. But then my bones are exposed, so go figure.

I feel a tiny bit like when I read the end of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by [livejournal.com profile] black_regalia & [livejournal.com profile] calicokat, though the ending for this one will not be the same as for that epic (trying not to spoil anything here, but the authors of Freak Camp have already told us that in general terms.)  It's just tearing me up. That IS a compliment. I am in awe of the authors, Brose and Lavinia.

[livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k, I got your email, thanks:) You are chugging along.

C, love you. As you know. But it never hurts.

Because I couldn't help myself. There's more than a few good ones over there - I'm liking these two in particular, but you can only go for one prompt (until later on)  - but don't they look good (in a terrible way)?

98- Gen or Sam/Dean. Pre-series. John with Munchausen by Proxy. Or perhaps an AU where Mary lives and John dies, and Mary suffers the condition. Sam is around six when the abuse begins. As he grows older, the psychological damage begins to take it's toll on Sam (If the child lives to be old enough to comprehend what's happening, the psychological damage can be significant. The child may come to feel that he or she will only be loved when ill and may, therefore, help the parent try to deceive doctors, using self-abuse to avoid being abandoned).

Dean's point-of-view would be great, as he becomes suspicious and then discovers what's been going on, or alternating points-of-view - but I'm not picky. However the writer chooses to do this is fine. Prompt is here.

99- Gen or Sam/Dean - pre-series or set when John appears on the show in season one. John suffers from Capgras Delusions, where he thinks that Sam has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor. Because this is the land of supernatural creatures, maybe he thinks Sam's possessed, or a shape shifter or doppelganger. Dean's not sure what to believe - on one hand, he knows Sam, and Sam hasn't done anything out of the ordinary. On the other hand, John knows more than Dean. . . right? Prompt is here.


anyway, I'm hoping to claim this one (I asked for it) - slash. Highlight to see: Sam can't feel anything, but he'll still do anything for his brother. And all Dean wants is to make Sam feel, even if it's pain. Messed-upedness. Rough sex and Dean-hurting-Samness.A scene with an emotional (crying?) Dean running his hands through an exhausted, fucked-out Sam's hair while he's on top of him and screaming at Sam to feel something would be great. Sam loves his brother and wants to feel something and make Dean feel better, but he just can't.
kassidy62: (brothers don't lie by crazypandabear)
Bolt From the Blue by [livejournal.com profile] spoons1899 - a storm is coming. Late season 4 angst, gen.
Dean's unease and fear and sorrow all beautifully done, from the very air inside the Impala feeling different and safe compared to outside where Sam is:
"The air crackles like flames and Sam is still standing in the road like this is all for his benefit and he’s going to drink it in and throw it back out, like a lightning rod, inviting power and death."
kassidy62: (Default)

Warnings, notes, etc:
I labeled it gen, though there's one tiny reference to a het, er, incident.
I had no intention of writing this tonight - I was reading a story online and it said something about how Sam would be the end of Dean, right? And somehow that made me think about how the show is flirting with a less than happy ending for Sam, and also how precarious I think his mental state should be after seeing Dean torn apart in front of him. Which gave me this story idea - to allude to how crazy Sam could be, given how everyone he loves (and/or sleeps with) dies, never mind his other troubles, like, oh, having powers and demonic blood, etc. so on so forth.
I don't claim he's in character here, but I try and utilize what the show's given us to present him in the way that I do.

This is not at ALL a happy story. I have a hard time bringing myself to announce specifics in warnings, so if you're sensitive, assume the worst and please don't read. One specific I can manage: there's some violent, grisly stuff here.
Having said all this, I do hope you enjoy it - it literally came out of the blue, and I don't know for sure if I like the style or not. Not much sure of anything at the moment:)

This came from last week's prompt at spnflashfic - the word count got away from me (though I kinda feel like I could have made it, oh, twice as long), but they're pretty lenient that way. 

Wincest, Sam/Dean, NC-17
Wordcount: 1,650
Prompt: The Impala
For Cassandra – thanks for naming it, Smoopy
