So [livejournal.com profile] dither_river is quite possibly my favouritest person in the whole universe right now! Yessir. I have NO visual art skills to speak of, so I don't usually bother with that sort of thing (trust me, you're all grateful for this decision).

SHE MADE ME A BANNER FOR "Take Me Home." Remember that ridiculously long fic in which I turned Sam into a dog and then made him re-enact "Lassie Come-Home?" That one? Yes.

CHECK IT OUT!

Title: Take Me Home
Summary: The Trickster decides to have some fun with Sam. Wackiness ensues, with a healthy helping of whump, because it's me and I can't leave the boys intact.
Spoilers: All aired episodes up to 5.10
Word Count: 2,054 for this chapter
Disclaimer: Luckily for them, I own nothing. Otherwise they'd be in for a world of hurt.
Warning: Utter crack. Language that is definitely not workplace-appropriate.
Neurotic Authorial Disclaimer: No beta, written in such a hurry I'm amazed my fingers managed to connect with the keyboard.
Neurotic Authorial Disclaimer #2:I take NO responsibility for this, because it's cracktastic and weird and I can't believe it came out of of my brain. If you are scarred for life after reading it, it's NOT my fault!
Neurotic Authorial Disclaimer #3: It's basically "Lassie Come-Home," Winchester-style. I dunno. STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!

Part 29

Additional A/N: This is it, folks, the very last chapter! It's been a heck of a ride, and you have all been absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much to everyone who commented and acted as cheerleaders for me. I couldn't have done it without you. :)

I am a little sad that this story is over, actually. It's been my constant companion for over a month now. I think I'll be writing a couple of little one-offs to tie up the stories of some of the original characters, since several people have requested that. So, uh, watch this space for further developments on that score.

Thanks again to everyone for making this a really memorable journey!

Further To Additional A/N: For those who are interested in the musical aspect of things, I had two songs in particular that I listened to while I was writing this. The first one, not surprisingly, is John Denver's “Take Me Home, Country Roads” (which gave me the title for the story). The other one is The Proclaimer's “I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles).” Mostly because of the chorus, which goes:

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles
To fall down at your door!


I thought it was pretty apt.

So it turned out that I was really, really unhappy with the last chapter before the epilogue of "Take Me Home." Not only that, but I was made of math fail once again, and there were only 28 chapters.

I ended up scrapping Chapter 28 anyway, and then the re-write turned into two chapters. Gah.

So after that triumphant last post in which I declared the story finished, I feel kind of stupid in declaring victory once again, but this time it's true, I swear! Not only that, but the epilogue will get posted tomorrow, so there's no chance of going back now.

Eesh.

I am Posty McPostsalot today, it seems.

This is the first of the two chapters with which I've been having trouble. If there are broken sentences and paragraphs that don't make sense, that's why. Feel free to let me know if stuff is broken: I've gutted and re-written these bits so often that I can't see straight anymore. :P

Also, there is shameless, shameless schmoop in this part. SHAMELESS. I regret nothing.

An extra-long chapter this time. This is where Gabriel decided to take up residence in my brain and not go away until I let him talk for a while. Don't ask me why, I have no idea. The worst part? I kind of like him now, after spending four and a half perfectly lovely years disliking him intensely in all his guises. *sigh*

Woah. The screaming I got about the last chapter! Holy heck, guys! :D

Don't worry. Unlike Kripke, I fix what I break. ;)

Anyway, this chapter is a new POV. This is the moment in the story when Castiel decided he was taking up residence in my brain and wouldn't leave until I paid attention to him. *shrug* I dunno, it made sense at the time.
