Some bookmarks from this year’s reading.

  • kroki_refur: Proved by Your Conviction 1/1:

    Sam Winchester walks out of Martin Wyatt’s classroom one day late in 1997 and never walks back in again.

    That’s not true, though – not the whole truth. Sam does come back, twelve years later. Things haven’t changed – the kids are still wearing ridiculous clothes, still chewing gum and groaning at homework and getting through as best they can, and Martin is still grading papers in the same classroom, still flying high on the good days and reminding himself why he wanted this job in the first place on the bad. Things haven’t changed, but Sam has.

  • iseult_variante: Fic – the gods might offer gifts (American Gods/Supernatural):

    Title: the gods might offer gifts
    Fandoms: American Gods and Supernatural
    Rating/Pairings: Gen, none
    Summary: Dean remembers the week that Sammy came down with the croup, remembers Czernobog and the Zorya.

    In the old places, in the old times, when they were turned away from the hearth, heroes could seek the temples and shrines and sacred places, and sometimes the gods would come to them. For service or caprice, the gods might offer gifts – magical arms or animal-tongues, prophecy or enchanted shields. But in a land where the gods are made selfish by their own waning, what gifts can heroes hope for on the hard road?

  • thirstyrobot: [SPN] Fic: I’ll Buy You Tall Tall Trees and All the Waters In the Seas:

    Title: I'll Buy You Tall Tall Trees and All the Waters In the Seas
    Rating: PG for language and kissing and some very tame sexual references
    Words: ~5500
    Pairing/Characters: Emmanuel!Castiel/Daphne, Dean/Castiel
    Warnings: If you hate Daphne and her very existence, you probably will not enjoy this. Also, in case you didn't get it the first two times, 7×17 SPOILERS!
    Summary: He doesn't feel chosen or gifted, and he doesn't remember.
    Notes: Basically my brain's version of 7×17, the super-extended but not-as-porny-as-I-hoped edition.

  • bardicvoice: Questions to ask at conventions …:

    Okay: the purpose of this post is simply to collect questions for Supernatural folk that I would love to hear answered. Some of these were mine, some I snagged from others. If you're going to a con, want to ask a non-stupid, non-repetitive question, and can't think of one, feel free to snag and ask one of these! The only thing I would ask is, if you do, please come back and let me know the answer. :)

    I'm leaving this as a sticky post, so I'll add to it over time and cross out ones that have been answered.

  • Aaron Bass: Schrödinger’s Gay:

    Through Aaron Bass, Supernatural does something that is quite rare in television or film.  Aaron is a character with ambiguous sexual orientation and, without turning him into a joke or requiring clarification of his sexuality; he is presented as a complicated human character who rises to be a hero.  Additionally, through his character, heteronormative assumptions are subverted, mocked and rendered irrelevant.

    [I really, really dislike the use of “gay” to mean “gay person”, and of course ambiguous characters are not the same thing as unambiguous queer representation, but I think this is an interesting essay and there is value in having some characters whose sexuality is not easily defined. -L]

  • lettered: The Chuck Writes Story: An Unathorized Fandom Biography:


    I’m about to link this on bad_penny.

    Remember chuck_writes? Wank All Star that lord_kripke and the other Super Gnats took down with a wrecking ball? That chuck_writes?

    Turns out that chuck_writes was actually a sock for Carver Edlund (which was actually a pseud for his real name, Chuck Shurley. No wonder he used a pseud). You read that right. chuck_writes is THE Carver Edlund—author of Supernatural books, beloved by the masses, worshipped by lord_kripke and the SPN Super Nats—that Carver Edlund.

    Break out the popcorn.gif; here we go:

    [OH MY GOD this is great; also a total mindfuck. What is reality, and how can I restore my grip on it, pls? -L]
