Freedom hangs like heaven; gen, Sam & Dean, pg-13, ~1700 words
I want the show to end like this. Exactly like this. Seriously. This expresses everything I wish for for the boys. ♥

So sometimes you have a fic that's one of your most favorite, is your favorite by that author, and you think that it'll always be your favorite. Then something someday comes along. It hooks you, addicts you, gets under your skin, makes you completely and utterly fall in love with it. And then it ends. And you realize, that favorite has slipped to number two, and something else has taken its place.

Believer, by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux, Sam/Dean, R, 23,828 words.

I just. I just. Man, I just love this. I just left three comment boxes worth of gushing.

Yeah, I'm a weirdo. But it deserved it, she deserved it. :|♥

All Fired Up, This Soul by [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte, Sam/Dean (brief Sam/OFC and Dean/OMC), R, 13,450 words
From her summary: Slowly but surely, Sam gets his soul back. I have been wanting to rec this for DAYS, since I betaed part 1, and now I finally can \o/ So good, in so many ways. I really am in ♥ with this story--and Show so should have gone like this.

CASUAL INTIMACY IS MY FAVORITE THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD THE END. I'm just sayin'. Gorgeous, gorgeous fic. Also, I leave stupidly incoherent comments at times.

Re: WoW. Got down Atramedes and Chimaeron tonight/last night/whatever, go us. The second was notable for the fact that it was the first time our group attempted it, and took just four tries to get the kill.

Dear winter: Stop making me itch, ffs.

Also, I'm sort of pondering ideas for a soulless!Sam fanmix, which probably says I'm a horrible person. Also also, I'm so gd tired, why am I still even up, I don't know.

Oh my god, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zuben_eschamali for pointing me at a streaming vid link, so I could at least catch the last 2/3 of the later timezone broadcast while I had the full ep file downloading.

Anyway. 6.09 )

I think I've found my favorite thing ever. At least for the moment.
The Greatest of These by [livejournal.com profile] wanttobeatree, from the recent How the Winchesters Got Their Groove Back comment-fic meme, PG (gen), spoilers up to 6.07, 2300 words
Seriously took my breath away. Read it, commented, had to go back and read again. I can feel this fic in my heart, and I want to cry (truly, I'm so close to it) it's so beautiful and bittersweet and perfect. I really wish I could write like this.

I need to quit making multiple posts a day. Is becoming a bad habit. :| But this deserves another post ♥

Did a prompt at this meme, which I'm sure many have seen on their flist already:

The next time the boys see Bobby, he gives them a ~suspicious~ package he received addressed to Dean but with no sender listed. Inside, lo and behold, it's the amulet--which Dean isn't exactly thrilled to see. But when it ends up near to Sam, freaky things start to happen. :D Wincest and/or hugs definitely welcome.

http://wanttobeatree.livejournal.com/943667.html?thread=8142899#t8142899 - "A piece of my soul" (Sam/Dean)

Later I decided it was kind of a lame prompt and figured no one was going to do anything about it, but [livejournal.com profile] akintay filled it and I am SO HAPPY. ♥ Truly--it turned out to be so sweet and hopeful and heartwarming. She really made something so wonderful out of that prompt. (Thank you again, hon ♥)

And if anyone hasn't read the rest of the comment fic there, OMFG DO IT, NOW. So, so, *so* many wonderful (and occasionally cracky :p ) fills. It's the most I've handflailed at a comment fic meme in a long time.
whitereflection: (sam devil inside)
So, reading a little meta, and it just makes me wonder. At this point, is Sam'n'Dean fixable? (Or Sam/Dean, if you're one for that). I mean, honestly fixable? Like can they come back from where they're at now, or even if it is fixed, will it be Sam & Dean instead of Sam&Dean?

I saw so many points where there seemed to be really big cracks between them in s5, but I never felt like if things were fixed that they couldn't be Sam&Dean again. But seeing things in s6, I wonder. Has it gone too far? And that's just based off the supposition that things would start to be fixed right away--what if this is something that continues to be dragged out, perhaps even the entire season? (No spoilers there, just supposing/theorizing) If this continues on, especially if it continues as a story arc the entire season, does that influence the possibility of a return to Sam'n'Dean as the time of this brokenness is prolonged?

I guess I just wonder, reading a tiny bit of what other people are hypothesizing, if Sam can be 'fixed', and if so, if the damage that has been done to their relationship, to trust and to real true love (familial or otherwise), can be healed, or if the fix will be the classic too little, too late.

Pardon the repeated posting today. I'm actually kind of anxious about tonight's episode and nervous about where they're taking things, so I'm kinda just babbling in hopes that I quit dwelling on it. Because I am lame and spend hours (or more than >_> ) worrying about fictional characters in a TV show. Yeah.

And I'm glad I'm so into J2 fandom, because honestly that's close to all I've been reading fic-wise of late. There just seems to be...less Sam/Dean out there lately and a hell of a lot less gen Sam'n'Dean h/c fic. And what h/c fic there is is so often Dean-centric. It's like either people don't like Sam so they don't focus on him or if they're still supporting him are so unsettled by the way things are right now it's affecting their ability to write him/write about him.

The yay is that we got heroic 10m Putricide in WoW last night. It really is a cool thing, and the result of a lot of work. Only two more achievements left for the 10man drakes (heroic Sindrigosa and the Waited A Long Time For This one).

Really, really down today. A moodswing from being up/manic/productive last week, I guess. And I'm worried about one of my cats--Missy (aka cat 3 of 4), the maine coon. What we thought was a mat of fur is an about third inch growth on her skin, and I'm going to have to get her to the vet. Don't know if it's something that's infected/inflamed, or if it's a tumor of some sort.

But also, fandom is just...making me sad right now. I thought it was bad enough to see/hear about such hate for my favorite character, but to know how people are being to each other now...it's just really disheartening. I do not understand the meanness, the hurtfulness, even the swearing at each other. I just don't comprehend it. Aren't we in this for a common love of this show and it's characters? Even if you don't like all of the characters or parts of the show, don't people know how to be respectful and considerate of others, to know that something you say horrible things about might be something that someone else likes or even loves?

I guess for me...well, I'll put it simply. I like Sam Winchester. I like Jared Padalecki. I like fanworks, whether they be gen or slash or even RPF/RPS. I like Supernatural--and I will, I am pretty damned sure, continue to like it. But most of all, most importantly, I like you. There's a reason I friended you all, and there's a reason I keep you as friends and hope you keep me as well. I greatly appreciate that I can share in your lives in these small ways, and share in this common love of the show Supernatural, its characters, and cast/crew.

Please, just be excellent to each other?

Anyway. Stuff I have to do first, but what I want to do is find feel-good, uplifting, hopeful fic and just hide and wallow. Though I also kind of want to see if I have a DVD of Bill & Ted, and watch it and try to get rid of this stupid urge to cry I've had since waking up. I'm too old to be like this--I'm 37 not 17.

Title: There and Back Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] whitereflection (Di)
Rating: PG-13 (Gen)
Word Count: 8138
Summary: It's a long road home, but for Sam, there's only one destination that matters.
A/N: Written for the Summer Of Sam Love Celebration 2010, for the episode 5.22/Swan Song. Set post-5.22, but will obviously be AU soon, and there are no spoilers for season 6. Thanks to the [livejournal.com profile] summer_sam_love community for letting me participate in such an incredible project. ♥ Thanks most of all to [livejournal.com profile] akintay for betaing, and to all my friends list for putting up with me. The title is borrowed from J.R.R. Tolkien, and the name J. Alfred Prufrock is borrowed from T.S. Eliot. One section was inspired by an image shared by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux. Cut text is from the song "It's An Ugly Life" by Electric President.

Title: FUCK YEAH CHICK FLICK MOMENTS: Power Ballads For Missing Your Brother While He's In Hell (A Dean/Sam Fanmix)
Subject: Dean Winchester
Pairing: Dean/Sam
Disclaimer: Supernatural and Dean and Sam Winchester are property of E. Kripke and the CW. All music included is property of the listed artists/bands and their labels.
Notes: For the recent [livejournal.com profile] spnland fanmix challenge. I still suck at graphics, but had fun doing this anyway.

For Dean. Call it what you will--hard rock, classic rock, cock rock, hair band heavy metal--most every band who played that sort of music had their ballads. Because even if you claim to have no chick flick moments, you know love and loss, you grieve, and you cry. This is the music to play during those times--when you're remembering your brother and missing him so damned much; when it hurts so fucking bad you wish he hadn't made you promise to live; when you're still loving him just as strongly, just as forever, as when he was still here.

Was looking up Dylan Thomas poetry on YouTube to hear readings, and I stumbled on this old Supernatural video:

Text from Dylan Thomas' "And Death Shall Have No Dominion" and scenes from early Supernatural, to the music of Sigur Ros' Untitled 3 (Samskeyti). God, just...I cried through it. Just...what a combination. Would have cried harder if I weren't trying to hold it in since the usual him's on the other side of the room.

This is the sort of thing that makes me wish I lived near a fellow fan who I could get a hug from, who wouldn't be all WTF that things about fictional characters gut me so.

I haven't answered comments since the 20th. I'm sorry. I suck.

[livejournal.com profile] motherlessguns A Winchester poetry community, for both poems that remind us of Sam and Dean and for fanpoetry about them. THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME AWESOME THING EVER. I've wanted this sort of comm for so long \o/

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] verbranden linked me to this image (warning? for mostly unclothed dude):
I forget which soccer player she said it was, but oh my gooooood hello. Holy hell, he's pretty. And wow, muscle definition. o____o I just. Yeah. I still have it open in a tab.

a light to lead you home, Sam/Dean, R, approx. 6900 words
So, so incredibly good. Casefile, plus absolutely awesome voices for Dean and Sam, and perfect writing of the way they interact with each other. I'm stupid on words today, so I'm failing on elucidating what all I love about this, so I guess I'll just leave it at saying it's just damned perfect. Even if it makes me ache.

Also there is [livejournal.com profile] summer_sam_love. And this http://community.livejournal.com/summer_sam_love/45611.html is the project for 2010--a fanwork tag for each episode of the series, celebrating Sam. I uh. I claimed 5.22 Swan Song :x I'm alternating on panicking and being incredibly damned eager and excited to try this.
