Fic Master Post Part One Part Two Part Three Part Four Part Five
The True Story of the New World has been more than a year in the making. Some folks might recognize the basis of this fic as coming from a prompt I claimed and never filled on whenthewarsover ("38. The apocalypse is over. Sam writes it all down, and the result tops the New York Times bestseller list for an entire year. Dean loves that Sam's found something to do with his life, but doesn't know how he fits in. And then he reads Sam's controversial second novel." to be precise). These prompts were written pre-season five and I had plotted this out and written about half of it summer 2009.
I rewrote most of it. There were chunks that season five destroyed (like the Roadhouse being run by Jo, her husband, and their two adorable children) and parts that just didn't make sense. And it worked. I had great support from my flist, omgspnbigbang, and, of course, the amazing spn_j2_bigbang mods, wendy and thehighwaywoman.
I also need to give wendy and thehighwaywoman extra special thanks for letting me change my posting date when my personal life exploded in late May. It made all the difference in the world and I appreciated it.
Of course, campowensfic was amazing, both to talk to about my fic and as an artist. I love the work and I hope you do, too.
Thank you so much for reading.
