Summary: After a hunt, Sam and Dean are found by a puppy. Dean never thought such a tiny furball could ruin his plans.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] pez_gurl gave me the prompt: Sam/Dean, puppy. SS Deanbottoms helped with cheerleading and a key plot point. This is the puppy in question. The fic takes place either in an alternate, cheerful season four or an amazing cheerful season five.

The dog followed him, darting between his legs and stepping all over his boots. )

Title: Bloody Knuckles
Author: [livejournal.com profile] chasingtides

Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don't own the characters of Supernatural and no copyright infringement is intended.
Prompt: 1294. Supernatural, Sam and Dean (or Sam/Dean), The only thing in common between succubi and crossroads demons was the fact that they would appear as something you would be willing to swap spit with Sam and Dean deal with the fact that Sam's crossroads demon and Dean's succubus appeared as men rather than supermodels.
Summary: Sam never figured a bar fight in Nowheresville, Tennessee would lead to learning so much about his brother - or the hunting community.
Warnings: References to underage sex, homophobic violence and language
Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest. Special thanks to my betas, [livejournal.com profile] tahu and [livejournal.com profile] katbcoll. I had been wanting to write this ever since the siren episode and this fest gave me the push to actually do it. I hope I've done the prompt justice.

Title: Lix Tetrax
Rating: R (violence)
Summary: Everyone knows that Bobby Singer killed his wife, stabbed her in the chest. Everyone thought he was a nice man, taught up at the university, but just goes to show, you never really know a person.
Notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] samidha for the cheerleading and coaching and to [livejournal.com profile] kelios for being a great beta. I started this ages ago, after having a brief conversation with [livejournal.com profile] delphinapterus in September, so, in a way, this fic is for her.

It was all a dream come true, really. There had been days - weeks, even - where he’d thought that he’d live and die trying to wring a PhD out of Northwestern’s cold, dead hands, but here they were. Sioux Falls hadn’t originally been their dream, with the average January temperature of 15 degrees and being a couple hundred miles from family, but they’d turned it into one, together. )
So I re-watched Heaven and Hell tonight. (Oh, and my father thinks that Anna is a weak, poorly written, whiny milksop. My mother likes Castiel.)

Hey, Castiel, can you get more passive? Seriously. Even when Alistair is attacking you or Uriel is being a jackass, Castiel is immensely passive.

Actually, Castiel and Sam act pretty similarly in this episode. Until Dean is threatened, neither of them do anything. Uriel and Dean act similarly - they are both verbally violent and take physical action.

What does it mean, other than my amusement at watching Uriel call Dean a monkey and Dean call Uriel junkless? (I do like it when Dean calls Uriel junkless.) I'm not entirely sure.

Sam is, by the presence of his demon blood and his faith, in a gray area. He believes that there are better things in this world (see Houses of the Holy, 2.13). He wants the angels to be the angels of his faith (see It's The Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester, 4.07). The angels, however, don't seem to be terribly pleased with Sam, despite the fact that he actually believes in them. He didn't need to see them or their wings - he knew that they were real, needed them to be real, in a way that was never true for Dean. And yet, he is the so-called Boy King - the poisoned human with the demonic powers. He is torn between using his powers for good and following the apparent will of God. What about the people who will die, he asks himself in 4.07, what about the people he can save?

Castiel, too, is in a strange place. He is angel who loves his Father and his Father's creations (4.07). However, unlike Uriel, his violent and shoot-first-ask-later counterpart, has his doubts. He wants to save, to love, to let live. He is a soldier, but he, as best he can, cares. When he and Uriel encounter Anna in Heaven and Hell (4.10), he tells he that he is sorry. She tells him he is not. In 4.07, he appears to have doubts.

Neither Sam nor Castiel take action in the same way Dean and Uriel do in 4.10. In the first scene, in the encounter in the shack, Dean and Uriel go at it like angry cats, but both Sam and Castiel hang back. Castiel turns away from Uriel and looks down. When Uriel attacks Ruby, Sam - whom we know know was in some kind of sexual relationship with her - hangs back, while Dean goes after Uriel. Dean and Uriel fight physically. Sam turns to Castiel and begs him to stop. Castiel pulls his sleepy-time fingers and removes Sam from the situation in a most nonviolent way.

Again, at the end of the episode, when the angels, demons, and Winchesters meet in the barn, both Sam and Castiel hang back. They don't fight. They are passive. Dean and Uriel both attack and fight like the soldiers that they are.

I am not sure what this means. But I do think that the parallels (Uriel:Dean, Castiel:Sam) are interesting. I think Castiel's character is evolving. I don't think he's as simple as Anna made angels out to be - he is very clearly thinking differently from Uriel in this episode. I don't think he's falling, but he and Uriel are behaving very differently and possibly toward different ends.
Title: An Extremely Circuitous Courtship
Rating: PG
Genre: RPS (Jensen/Jared)
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] samidha
Summary: Jensen has a mancrush, Jared is a Terminator robot, and neither of them have plans for New Year's Eve.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] uschickens for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas with the prompt: A pretend-to-be-dating story, either Sam/Dean or Jared/Jensen. You said you liked happy endings and humor. I did my best with snappy dialogue. I might steal some of your prompts for future fics. I hope this is to your liking!

When he first moved in, Jensen thought that Jared might have been taking pills, but he changed theories; now he just thought that Jared wasn’t fully human. Those Terminator robots didn’t need to sleep, did they? )
Title: Always Burn to Be
Author: [livejournal.com profile] chasingtides
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] samidha
Rating: R
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Summary: He was too tired; too exhausted from chasing black, oily eels out of the innocent, human dead; too burned out from holding back; too wasted from saving people to even think before he moved, before he grabbed Dean, before he wrapped his long, sinewy length around Dean's bright sun to keep him safe forever, safe from demons who tortured and soiled and angels who blessed and burned.
Notes: Written for[livejournal.com profile] keefaq in [livejournal.com profile] spn_giftxchnge. Her request was: Sam/Dean, first time, any rating, I like competent Latin chanting smart boys. I've had the help of more people than I can count, but particularly I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] samidha, for dealing with my shenanigans, and [livejournal.com profile] spn_support for being impromptu betas and psychic incest advisers.

It burned like he was standing just too close to an open flame in the dead of winter. )
Title: This Godforsaken Wilderness
Rating: PG (gen)
Summary: AU. Thirteen years ago, the Winchesters moved to Massachusetts and fit in almost seamlessly. Then, in 2002, Sam Winchester's life begins to spiral out of control after the inexplicable death of his brother's roommate.
Word Count: 21, 003
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] extraonions who bought it on [livejournal.com profile] livelongnmarry. It has been a labor of love and I hope she enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. My betas, [livejournal.com profile] just_ruth and [livejournal.com profile] samidha, were two of the most patient people I've ever had helping me with my work. Many thanks. May thanks go as well to [livejournal.com profile] una__sola and [livejournal.com profile] samidha for getting me to get on it after this had been sitting on my hard drive for two months gathering dust. Lastly, this fic, set in my home region, though not my home town, holds a special place in my heart and I hope readers can sit back with a cup of tea (or coffee) and enjoy it.
