I got up and don't have to write a poem and that's... shockingly sad.

Poetry has been with me pretty much always, but I never tried a full-throttle 30/30 before. And yeah, this month comes with the expectation that everything will be unpolished, and some things will suck. Still, I didn't expect to feel so exposed.

And yet.

Every time I was this close to giving up, one of you came through with motivation, inspiration, kind words, surprise 'likes'... Thank you. I doubt you've imagined how much that's meant to me.

I will forget people if I try to list everything. However, these fine friends offered up prompts, and for that I am grateful. [personal profile] frozen_delight , saintedsam, nisaki-chan, [personal profile] madebyme_x , and caffeinechesters: You all deserve better; thank you for being good sports. My apologies to [personal profile] jay128 and [personal profile] crowroad for failing your prompts. (Note to self: you suck at songfic.) And speaking of my girl crow, big ups to you and [personal profile] z_publicizes . Y'all make me feel way less ridiculous.

work product )

Thanks again fam. Y'all really showed up for me and you didn't have to. Laying up treasures in Heaven, that. ♥

Hey friends. This is me swimming up out of a Benadryl coma, cause I wanted to thank you for all the wonderful birthday messages, posts, gifs, gifts, and all around love. I'll get back around to the inbox when I'm a little more lucid, but for now, please know I sure do appreciate you. (And, yeah, fighting a virus is un-fun, but it's a good excuse to huddle up and be massively lazy. I win either way. Heehee.)
I spent a good chunk of yesterday rolling around in the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas. Here's some Wincest you may have missed. ;)

Turning the Tables

Sam turns the tables on his brother, who turns them right back.

A Family Affair
[livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight | ~3k | PG-13

still here I carry my old delicious burdens
[livejournal.com profile] all_the_damned | ~3.5k | NC-17
There’s a road through hell. Or maybe it’s topside. Dean can’t tell the difference sometimes.

A Very Supernatural Christmas Carol
[livejournal.com profile] wetsammy | 8k | PG-13
Sam and Dean return to the Bunker together to iron things out after Gadreel is expelled. Sam wants to celebrate Christmas to help bridge the distance, but Dean only has eyes for hunting Abaddon. After Sam storms out, Dean is visited by four ghosts from his past. Of course, it all goes wrong before it goes right.

aka the one in which Dean is Scrooge, Sam is not Tiny Tim, and Bobby is not impressed by the Bunker

[livejournal.com profile] runedgirl | ~5k | NC-17
For the prompt: F*ck or die, anywhere, anyhow. They knew the risk when they went after the thing. (prostitution)

[livejournal.com profile] themegalosaurus | ~1k | PG-13
Just a morning in a diner

Spring Will Come Again
[livejournal.com profile] buticankarriyou | ~2.5k | PG-13
After Cold Oak, the Winchester’s take a break and enjoy Dean’s last year. (temporary canon compliant character death)

Voices wake us, and we drown

Something’s following. (dubious consent of the fuck-or-die variety)

The Problem of Other Minds
[livejournal.com profile] rivkat | ~9k | NC-17
Being persuasive is a terrible superpower. (panty kink; mention of mind control but none consciously involved with sex)

Art presents!

Oh, you bet I'm dragging this out. Since I'm not even done with my gift fics, I'm just pretending it's still totally Christmas.

I think [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal gave me the glorious banner you see above for my birthday? Last Christmas? Either way I can't find where I ever properly thanked you, so... *hugs and squishes*

And from [livejournal.com profile] saintsammy (a.k.a saintedsam), domestic!Dean in the dead guy robe. (Click for the full image on her Tumblr.)

Botha you:

Ah who cares. Join me around the tree and share in some late holiday blessings.

Caution for Wincest and smut... What blog you been reading? ;)

Presents for me, 2016

The Frost Killing Hour by gaialux (aka [livejournal.com profile] jalu2)
From [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas, achy-sweet and hottttt! Samulet fix-it plus power games... *dead*

Promises to Break, Promises to Keep by Nisaki (aka [livejournal.com profile] swan_song21)
Acutally this is but one of a dozen spectacular Wincestmas gifts from nisaki-chan. Fic and art, okay? Santa was sooo good to me. :D See the whole collection here!

*pause while grandma wanders off topic.* Some cosmological wrinkle gave me the privilege of writing for swan_song21 in spn-j2-xmas. Yup. And then she spoiled me rotten on Tumblr for 12 Days. (And you sat on that secret for weeks!) I can't even fathom the odds, still grinning about it.


Luke & John by [livejournal.com profile] crowroad3
Here's some gen! ^_^ Y'all got to keep your eye on this one. She gonna conjure somethin one-a these days. Here, Mary gets a Christmas visit(ation). Shivers and sobs, but look. It's crowroad3.

Kill the Lights by [livejournal.com profile] kalliel
Mostly gen (hints of Destiel and Megstiel). I think this originated in [livejournal.com profile] spn_bunker. Blessed indulgence of laughable's Meg-is-alive headcanon.

All the love and gratitude! Humbled by your talent and generosity. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] sillie82, [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams and I were talking about memes and art and stuff, as we do, and we cooked up this opportunity for folks to to shine a little light on our fandom's artists: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?

Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.

First, I want to start by blanket reccing the three geniuses who came up with this! Y'all rock. ^_^ Second, I know eff-all about art. Hope I haven't bungled this.

1.) traditional - pencil, I think? saintedsam's "I Talk to God but the Sky is Empty" (Sam's faith is one of those threads that keeps me awake at night. The heart here!)

2.) digital - "The Hope" by licieoic; breathtaking digital oil painting of Dean

3.) Mixed Media (again, I think) - "i never escaped the fire" by coltsandquills

4.) alternative media (I don't know what this means. Here's a pretty.) Amara by soluscheese

5.) photomanip/graphics - MiRta's take on Sam Winchester, which, ngh. (NSFW? Suggestive, anyway)

6.) h/c - littleskrib's "Don't be Scared of the Dark, Little Brother" Is this h/c? I have a fuzzy grasp on that concept. Gorgeous, either way. (Oh wait! Here's a good one for sure! "Sam's Patch Up Job" by zinfer)

7.) horror - This is about as horrific as I get, being a shmoopy Wincest devotee. ~_^ "The Family Business" by alien-doodles (Sadly the artist seems to have deleted the original post.)

8.) shmoop - Sastiel-ish doodle from clervescent

9.) nsfw - noaryr's "Pure Morning" This kind of, casual intimacy defines Wincest for me. Also, the colors.

10.) WILD CARD! - This Wincest manip. The artist, brothersdestiny, has deactivated their tumblr, but bless em for leaving us this:

All this stuff is from my Tumblr. Follow me and I'll hit you back, if I haven't already.


Oh, and the prompts be all fluffy and feelgood over there so far... *cracks kuckles*
Ok Wincest Big Bang and also Oh Sam and the discussion on spn_writing and I'm just...
Five delights )

I admit I can't handle most of the ohsam stuff, because I'm a sissy about blood, which of course is the theme. But the ones I managed to read (through the cracks between my fingers) have been SWEET! And I have sooooo much wincest to gobble up. Heeeeee.

What y'all reading?

Big ups to [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight for inventing this!

1. an old fic (posted at least three years ago)
2. a new fic (posted within the last six months)
3. a fic you wish had gotten more attention (less than 50 kudos on AO3 or less than 30 comments on LJ)
4. a genfic
5. a fic focused on a female character
6. a fic which made you see a character in a new light
7. a fic which made you ship something
8. a fic which inspired you to write
9. a fic with a particularly memorable line
10. ??? (Excited to see what categories you come up with!)

My recs )

(Confession: I mostly recycled recs from my Tumblr. Wonder if I should do these roundups, monthly, maybe?)

Last year for SPN Reverse Bang I got to work with the super-talented [livejournal.com profile] saintsammy. And ever since then she has been this incredible cheerleader, reblogger, and generally fabulous human. As if I weren't spoiled enough, she made this art for me last week. (Yeah ok I won a contest but still. SPOILED!)

Click the thumbnail to go to her Tumblr.

(Aforementioned RBB fic and art here.)

Spread the love! ♥

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes.

It was a busy one (Tuesdays are my loooong workday this semster) but nice, and today I'm being lazy and catching up with people.

I feel kind of bad about disappearing for what -- six weeks thereabouts? It's a terrible habit, rude in this social media world. If it's any comfort I do this shit on Facebook and Twitter too. (Crap I don't think I've tweeted in like a year. Haha.)

Tell me what's up with you. :D

A fic for me! *swoons*

And it's so good, too. This is me, being spoiled completely rotten.

Mile marker 48... )

If y'all aren't following the [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel Holiday Drabble Challenge, you're missing out. I've been sitting here with a big old face-hurting grin all week!

Come on over. I'll bring the eggnog. And the whiskey. Because screw eggnog. ;)

The endlessly awesome [livejournal.com profile] crowroad3 wrote me a mini-fic!

Sam & Dean and the Empty

This is me, being spoiled rotten. :D


Such sweet responses to yesterday's confession of dumbassery and clumsiness. Especially since I expect comments like:

"Good going, Grace."


"Did you bruise your brain?"

or (actual quote from former roommate)

"Quit lying. It was a sex swing injury." (Hmph. I wish.)

Apparently my RL friends are horrible people. Which of course is why I love them.

The kindness here is overwhelming. Which of course is why I love you.

Thanks, y'all.

(PS It's really not too bad. An inconvenience, annoyance at worst.)

From [livejournal.com profile] fandom4syria:

As many of you have likely seen on various newspapers and news stations around the world, millions of people from Syria have been displaced by the fighting going on in the country. Some have fled to the surrounding Middle Eastern nations, but as those neighbors have been maxed out many more have continued onward to Europe and elsewhere in search of a safe place to live. Many have traveled with very little if anything in the way of day to day needs and the various agencies are struggling to provide anything more than just the bare essentials for so many people. [livejournal.com profile] alycat made a post on her journal highlighting the difficulties the refugees are facing and asking for help going above and beyond to take care of them. [livejournal.com profile] lady_simoriah has amplified that call by running this charity community.

The auction will run until Thursday, October 22, 2015 @ 11:59pm Central Daylight Time (CDT) unless demand requires it to be open longer. List of organizations to donate to is on the auction site.


Laughable adds: Here's my offer if you want to check it out.

(And if you're broke like me, I hope you'll put up an offer of your own.)

I can never get enough of these. Big ups to [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal for getting this going.


full meme | my thread

Ye gods I am behind the times!

I've just posted a new fanfic offer on the fanworks auction for [livejournal.com profile] merakieross. You know, only a week and a half after the auction started. *averts eyes*

Why am I so late? I cloistered myself off the Internet so I could wrap up my previous auction fic. The lovely [livejournal.com profile] herminekurotowa bid on a fic from me to benefit [livejournal.com profile] sylsdarkplace. You can still contribute here even though that auction has closed.

What has come to be known in my head as the Dread Pirate Fic is now FINISHED. Well. Not finished. It is drafted. And now I'm going to leave it alone for a while, so I can give it a decent edit. In the meantime, here's a little taste...

Check it out... )
