Links from last summer.
- ficwriter1966: Chicago:
"Please," he says. "You're a nurse? Are you a nurse?"
It's in his eyes: he wants her to be a nurse as badly as most kids want free tickets to Six Flags. She wants to deny it, wants to send him back into the house – but she can't. A nurse is what she is, not just what she does. And he's a kid. Scared and desperate. That's in his eyes, in the pinched look around his mouth. "Yeah," she says. "I am."
"My brother's really sick."

Pairings: Dean/Castiel & Chuck/Becky
Warnings: Crackishness; about the usual amount of blasphemy
Spoilers: Through 5×09

Notes/Prompt(s): I tried to incorporate all of your prompts, although perhaps not in the expected way… In writing this story I owe many thanks to my betas, and deep apologies to Italo Calvino.

- nilchance: FIC: Gimme Shelter (1/1):
Summary: AU. Gen. If Mike Gunther had called Child Protective Services.
[Bobby & Missouri pov. This is… horrific. The next two recs are a continuation. -L]
- nilchance: FIC: Paint It Black (1/1):
Summary: AU. Gen. Continuation of Gimme Shelter.
The house creaked softly, a familiar song. Missouri felt her fingers tighten on the rim of her mug as she heard Sam come down the hall, his bare feet nearly silent on the carpet. In a few years, he'd walk with the same predator's grace as his father. Blood told, even if she didn't like its stories.
- nilchance: FIC: Rain Fall Down:
[Continues from "Paint It Black". This AU is nicely hypnotic but it feels unfinished. -L]
There was no sign of Dean in the yard, none at all, and it'd been three days. The kid had to be hungry, cold at night, maybe scared, but he hadn't come when Bobby left food and blankets on the back porch. Too much like John already; 12 and the kid was lined with barbed wire.

Fandom: Supernatural RPS
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki; Jensen Ackles/Tom Welling

Gen, word count 39,686
