Title: And If I Show You My Dark Side (Will You Still Hold Me Tonight)
Summary: Dean will never let Sam go, and Sam knows it. This changes nothing, but it changes everything.
Characters: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 2,982
Warnings: Consensual sibling incest. Spoilers up to the last aired episode of S9. Also, major trigger warnings: Major character death. Explicit depiction of suicide. Not the same character, either. Basically everybody dies. Sorry.
Neurotic Author’s Note #1: Well, on the plus side, I wrote something? I haven’t had much time or energy or inclination to write these days. Financial worries tend to kill the muse for me, and on top of that everything’s been busy and exhausting. Sorry.
Neurotic Author’s Note #2: On the not-so-plus side, I am really sorry for this story. No, really, I am sorry. Current canon is making me sad, and when I am sad I sometimes write really fucking depressing fic. Sorry. Also, this is not beta'd at all.
Neurotic Author’s Note #3: The title is taken from Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut from their album The Wall.




Dean is waiting in the motel room when Sam gets back. )

Title: You Can't Break Away--And You Never Want To
Summary: Firefly crossover/fusion-type thing. Dean accompanies his brother to visit Sam's old friend Inara, with whom he underwent his Companion training.
Characters: Dean, Sam, Inara, Mal, Kaylee.
Rating: PG-13
wordcount: 1,332
Warnings: Unrequited (so far) Dean/Sam. Implied Dean/Kaylee, if you tilt your head the right way.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: So [livejournal.com profile] kinkthattwinked gave me a prompt that sort of got away with me at my last post on the topic. Oops? I actually had this plot bunny living at the back of my head, and someday it will become a real story. For the moment, this is just me playing with the characters and seeing if I can do it. I've never written Firefly, after all.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: This is unbeta'd, just written in a hurry and tossed out there in order to see what happens.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: The title is actually a quote from the episode "Heart of Gold," from Firefly.




I still don't think this is a good idea, Sammy. )

Title: I See My Light Come Shining (From the West to the East)
Summary: With the Trials at an end, Dean thought that Sam would be fine and that they'd be able to turn the page on it all. As it turns out, he was wrong... Written for [livejournal.com profile] cleflink for [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Show-levels of gore. Spoilers to the end of Season 8.
Neurotic Author's Note # 1: Oh my goodness, dear [personal profile] cleflink, I tried so hard not to have unrelenting angst in this, and, um… I'm not sure I entirely succeeded. I blame Season 8, and the show in general, because unrelenting angst seems to be a Thing™ lately. I hope you like it anyway! It was a really gratifying story to write, even if it was hard.
Neurotic Author's Note # 2: I would also like to thank the lovely betas who stepped up to rescue me from myself at the last minute: [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama, [livejournal.com profile] harrigan and [livejournal.com profile] moviegeek03. You are all marvelous and if I were there in person I would shower you with kisses! <3
Neurotic Author's Note # 3: The title is taken from Bob Dylan's song I Shall Be Released. It felt appropriate. :)
Neurotic Author's Note # 4: Yes, I know, I'm posting this really late after reveals. I am so swamped with RL that I've been neglecting all things fandom. Sorry!

Title: Shiny, Happy
Summary: Sam is still covered in glitter after getting beaten up by clowns, and Dean really loves his new slinky. Written for [livejournal.com profile] framedhim's prompt of slinky and perfectly paired at [livejournal.com profile] salt_burn_porn.
Characters: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 1,902
Warnings: None, unless the Sam/Dean pairing didn't give away the fact that this does, in fact, consist of consensual sibling incest.
Neurotic Author's Note # 1: Man, I almost didn't make it. I haven't properly written fic in forever, and this weekend was a doozy. But here, have porn! And glitter. And no beta at all.
Neurotic Author's Note # 2: Life is crazy these days, which is why no fic. I'm hoping that April will prove less crazy. Stay tuned!

Characters: Dean, Sam, Perry, Castiel
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 4,726
Warnings: None! How awesome is that?
Disclaimer: The usual 'not mine, no profit,' etc.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: This was written as a present for the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] de_nugis, as a general thank you for being an awesome person. Darling [livejournal.com profile] de_nugis, you are spectacular in all ways, and I hope that 2013 treats you ever so much better than this year!
Neurotic Author's Note #2: I owe many thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] yasminke who helped me brainstorm this little story on Twitter, because my writing brain has been broken for so long that it has trouble coming up with things all on its own.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: After the last instalment of Fusion, I decided it was time I give the boys a good day again. The point of the 'verse, unlike Show, is not unrelenting misery. ;)
Neurotic Author's Note #4: Many thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] glovered et al, who organized this event. You guys are the best!

Title: Sometimes, All I Need
Summary: Fusion 'verse. After wandering out into the cold during Dean's office Christmas party, Sam gets sick.
Characters: Castiel, Sam, Dean
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 4,349
Warnings: Swearing, the usual
Disclaimer: Do I still need one of these? I think by now we all know I own diddly squat.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] shangrilada wrote me a story, and I recklessly promised her a Fusion story in return, focusing on the days between Bless Us, Every One and Among Your Friends and Kindred when Sam had pneumonia. Naturally, because this is a Fusion story, it became a story sort of about Cas in which Sam happens to be sick. And, of course, in the end, it still turned out to be a story about Sam and Dean. I don't even know.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: God, how long has it been since I wrote any Fusion? It feels like years. I have so many ideas, but it feels like my writing brain has shriveled up and died. So, yeah. I'm kind of sorry for how it doesn't flow as well as a lot of my earlier writing. I'm working on that.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Title is taken from "The Air That I Breathe," which was originally by the Hollies, I believe, but the version I know best is the one by K. D. Lang. Because, yeah, doesn't that one lyric totally describe the boys? I think it does. <3

ratherastory: (Crash & Burn)
Title: For the Holidays
Summary: Written for the ongoing [livejournal.com profile] ohsam comment-fic meme, for [livejournal.com profile] tarotgal's prompt, which was: Sam's first winter break at Stanford is filled with all the emotions. He's relieved to have done well at his first semester of classes. He's missing his brother and, well, maybe his dad a little, though he wouldn't admit it. And spending weeks pulling all-nighters for exam studying and completing projects has caused him to crash and finally come down with a nasty cold. Miserable, lonely, & sick, Sam wonders about where he's going to go when he gets kicked out of the dorms during the mandatory holiday break.
Characters: Sam, Jess (pre-relationship)
Wordcount: 6,773
Rating: G
Warnings: None.
Spoilers: Blink-and-you'll-miss-it S5 spoiler
Neurotic Author's Note #1: Wow, it has been a long time since I wrote some decent Sam-whump, hasn't it? I feel rusty. I feel like this story probably shows how rusty I am. But at least I'm writing, right? Right.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: So, um, [livejournal.com profile] tarotgal, I hope this is okay. There's a lot less actual head cold and it's closer to Sam/Jess than gen or slash, and… yeah, it's kind of your prompt and kind of not. Whoops. /o\
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Comment-fic, so it's unbeta'd. Read at your own peril.

Title: Do You Still Feel Me? (The Altered Senses Remix)
Summary: After a lifetime of sharing absolutely everything with his brother, right down to his last thought, Dean's world goes silent. Written for [livejournal.com profile] kamikazeremix, based on [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans' the senses might alter the way that you feel. Originally posted here.
Characters: Sam/Dean
Rating: R
Warnings: consensual sibling incest, mentions of (non-explicit) underage consensual sex (Sam is 16), show-levels of violence, canonical character death.
Spoilers: to the end of S2
Neurotic Author's Note: A big thank you to the mods for heroically throwing themselves on the grenade for the good of all fandom and running this challenge! [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans, I adored your story and the premise, and I tried very, very hard to do it justice. I'm not sure if I succeeded, but it was a pleasure and a privilege to be given your fic to work with. I did take your author's notes at their word, and made the Sam/Dean more explicit than in your story, so I hope that's okay. I also incorporated a few direct quotes, which you will likely recognize.

Title: Only the Next Moment
Summary: Time stamp to my previous fic, Of Old Time, Which Was Before Us. Sam takes care of Dean when he's sick.
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 1,511
Disclaimer: There must be SOME legal loophole that allows me to keep the boys tied up in my basement, I just know it! I haven't found it yet, alas.
Warnings: None. Just your basic h/c.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: If you haven't read the previous story, all you need to know is that Sam has permanent damage to his median temporal lobe. He has no memories of anything that happened in the series, and is unable to form new memories. The stories are all set post-S7, but Dean never went to Purgatory.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: This is unlikely to become a 'verse. Don't get your hopes up. :)
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Uh, actually, this was originally meant for [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time's current curtain-fic mini-challenge, and it was a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] jackien1968. It turned out to be a fic that was a bit more about Sam with a lot of bonus sick!Dean, so I'm posting it now and I'll post the other Dean-centric stuff to the comm next week as planned. Yes, I'm writing again. I'm excited!

Title: If I Die Before I Wake…
Prompt: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen, for [livejournal.com profile] faithburke's prompt Sam always knew he had a mother right next to him. He never realized she was dead. This story… isn't quite that, but I hope it comes close enough.
Characters: Sam, Dean, John, Mary
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Canonical Character Death. Major Character Death.
Neurotic Author's Note: I would like to thank the indefatigable [livejournal.com profile] rainylemons, without whom this fic would not be possible. She held my hand the entire way and didn't let me freak out when I started over what felt like a million times. I'd like to thank her and [livejournal.com profile] yasminke for betaing the crap out of this thing, and turning it into a much better story in the process. I of course tweaked it after they were done, so all remaining mistakes are mine.

Title: The Burning Bridge
Summary: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. Season 6 AU. With no end in sight on their quest to restore Sam's soul or to figure out just what Crowley is up to in his search for Purgatory, Sam and Dean break off in order to investigate a string of mysterious deaths in which the victims exhibited all the signs of radiation poisoning with no apparent cause before their deaths. The case takes a darker turn, however, when soon after they begin investigating Sam begins to exhibit the same symptoms as the victims. Suddenly Dean finds himself facing the disturbing dilemma of whether it might not be easier to let go of this empty-shell version of his brother and simply let the illness take its course...
Artist: The brilliant and awesomely talented [livejournal.com profile] tripoli
Link to Art: http://tripoli.livejournal.com/492758.html
Characters: Dean, Sam, Cas, Bobby, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 21,403
Disclaimer: All recognizable belongs to the CW.
Warnings: Levels of violence commensurate with the show.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: There are several people to thank for this! First off, my fantastically talented artist, [livejournal.com profile] tripoli, who illustrated this story in such an imaginative way. I am in awe, because she touched on all the important notes of the story in incredibly creative ways that would never even have occurred to me. There's also [livejournal.com profile] rainylemons, who not only beta'd the crap out of this story, but did the usual hand-holding she always does when I wailed unendingly to her about my writing, and once again served as my own personal medical encyclopedia without ever once complaining or balking. I love you, darling! Any mistakes concerning the subject matter found herein should of course be attributed to my lack of understanding, and any remaining grammar/spelling/syntactical mishaps are also all mine. And last but not least, [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] thehighwaywoman for the herculean task of running the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: So this fic has gone through about a million permutations before it ended up here. A long, long time ago, there were conversations with a few people, [livejournal.com profile] de_nugis included, about a story about Sam with radiation poisoning. I kept meaning to write it, and even signed up for a prompt by poor [livejournal.com profile] shangrilada in order to try to get this done, but it never happened. Instead, I started writing it for the [livejournal.com profile] hc_bigbang, but when that challenge didn't work out, I gave myself one last push in order to get it done for the main Big Bang, and here it is!
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Okay, confession time. This story is actually a shameless fix-it attempt on my part. No, seriously, this is the story in which I attempt to fix ALL the things about S6, and a couple of earlier things too. Yeah, I got nothing. On a purely storytelling front, this was a surprisingly difficult story to write, mostly because Soulless!Sam was and continues to be a bit of a mystery to me. That being said, I am quite pleased with how it turned out, in the end. I hope you'll all enjoy it!

Vidder's Notes:

Sam may have been saved from his ultimate destiny, but he wasn't saved from suffering.

Sam's speech at the end of House of the Holy has always been one of my favourites. Looking back it's sad to think just how much he lost and suffered.





Okay, I know I just recc'd this at [livejournal.com profile] ohsam, but really, I couldn't resist! It's too good a vid not to include everywhere, and it made me cry about two seconds after getting out of bed, so.

Go here to leave feedback for the vidder!

Neurotic Author's Note #1: So somewhere last night I got bitten hard by this random plot bunny. I decided to sleep on it since I have other things I needed to be writing, but it refused to let go, so I wrote it in order to get back to those other things. Here it is.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: Title is taken from Ecclesiastes 1:9. Nothing like a little Old Testament to make this really feel like Supernatural, am I right? :P
