Recs! Haven't had any for a while.



Wherefore the Elephant Toaster?, by [ profile] lassiterfics
Characters: Sam, Dean, Castiel
Rating: H for fruit bowl, warning: dadaism
Teaser: "Wattle thesis!" Dean snaps. "Jersey cake my fallopian, the chimney boobie fruit--" He cuts himself off, glaring straight ahead, and Sam watches his jaw clench and unclench.
Notes: Just... hilarious.

The Girlfriend Experience, by [ profile] rageprufrock
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: NC17
Teaser: "Well if human penises weren't so unruly, we wouldn't have to!" Cas yells back, red cheeked and belligerent. "I was so distracted by its tumescence earlier today I could barely function!"
Notes: Heee. Funny and hot.

Another extra for Right Where We Belong, my [ profile] au_bigbang fic! Back when I did the [ profile] kink_bigbang, I made an author's mix for it, so I thought I'd do something like that again. This time, instead of snippets, since you got snippets when I did the promo, I'm going to explain a bit about why I chose the songs. Thanks, [personal profile] feywood, for the help putting it together. ♥

There are spoilers for the fic in my commentary.

You can download the mix here, or listen to it on Spotify here.

You can read the fic here!

Tomorrow, I'll be posting my [ profile] au_bigbang fic. In honour of that, considering it involves a character who can't speak, I'm going to rec some of my favourite Supernatural fics involving some kind of disability. My [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic will also involve blindness, so this will remain topical.

If you know of any other good ones -- any pairing or none! -- let me know. I'm suffering from a lack of gen, considering both my Big Bangs are gen.

Unsaid, by [as yet unknown author]
Relevance: Dean is deaf, Castiel is mute.
Characters/Pairing: Dean, Castiel, Sam, assorted cast (Dean/Castiel
They make a good pair, the deaf boy and the mute angel.
At least, that’s what Dean figures the people in charge of the orphanage thought when they stuck them in the same room. Not that anyone knows Cas is an angel. Not like anyone would believe that.

Notes: This is a sweet AU. Not as totally AU as I thought, actually, but quite. There's no magical healing at all, just dealing with it.

My Eyes Are An Ocean, by [ profile] entangled_now
Relevance: Dean is blind.
Characters/Pairing: Dean, Castiel, Sam, Bobby (Dean/Castiel)
Rating: NC17
Dean can't tell what time it is, or if it's daylight, he can't tell if it's cloudy, or raining, or hell even if the curtains are open.
But he does know one thing.
The world smells like breakfast.
Which is a pretty good start.

Notes: This fic deals with the fact that there's magic and angels and a hope of healing by making it a trade. It doesn't come easy. It reminds me of the gods' interventions in the Fionavar Tapestry, somehow -- earned, not a gift. I don't like the sequel as much because, for me, it takes away some of that. But this is gorgeous. Love, and sacrifice, and hope.

Unsuffer Me, by [as yet unknown author]
Relevance: Dean is deaf, scarred, and apparently mute.
Characters/Pairing: Dean, Sam, Bobby, Castiel (Dean/Castiel)
Rating: NC17
After the end of the world I just wanted to rest and chill out, not to re-build my life from scratch around the fact that I can’t hear shit and that I look like the fucking phantom of the Opera.
Notes: This was written especially for me, and it's so awesome. It covers a long healing process, both of Dean's own body and his relationships to other people. There's magic, an acknowledgement of the potential for that kind of healing, but it's thwarted and things don't quite work out the ideal way. Which is the way life works.

You can now read my fic here!

It's nearly time for posting to start on [ profile] au_bigbang. I have been waiting impatiently to make this post since the end of March. Consider this a heads up: there is going to be a ton of awesome fic over at [ profile] au_bigbang, very soon.

In particular, there's going to be my fic, "Right Where We Belong", on the 10th. Summary: When John dies, Dean ends up at the roadhouse and is brought up by Ellen as Jo's big brother. Growing up there is no protection, though -- not when the apocalypse is about to start.

It includes: woobie!Dean, badass!Ellen, bratty!Jo, clueless!Castiel and misguided!Sam! There is angst! There is violence! Dean is mute and scarred and did I mention woobie? And the world is saved by hugging!

I am not even joking.

As I was writing this fic, for some reason, I started to think about a drinking game for it. By way of promo for the fic, I am going to post the rules for that drinking game right now.

Right Where We Belong, or The One In Which Hugs Saved The World: A Drinking Game

It's like this. Take a drink:

Rules under the cut, with teasers! )

Alternatively, grab a bottle of your chosen beverage, click on the cut tag, and start drinking. Keep drinking. No, really, keep on drinking. Don't stop. And -- no, get another bottle. Really! Keep drinking!

Disclaimer: If you drink water each time, you are going to be needing the toilet a lot. If you drink alcohol, well. I'll allow you to hold off on leaving me feedback until after you've had your stomach pumped. I do not accept responsibility for anything that happens to you if you actually attempt to put these rules into practice, they are a joke.

You can now read the fic here!

Not a lot I want to rec now -- all fic, all Supernatural.

Through Dooms of Love, by [ profile] ladytelemachus
Characters: Dean, Castiel, Claire (Dean/Castiel)
Rating: PG
Teaser: It’s the car she recognises first, when she comes out of her Civil War seminar with a stack of books clutched against her ribs. It’s still sleek and black and devilish, and she remembers the waxy feel of the seats and the tremble of the engine from a night years ago. It stops her in her tracks and taps insistently at the brave face she’s been keeping together for twelve years.
Notes: Now I want more fic with Claire...

Calling Dibs, Fulcrum, and Not Normal (So What Else Is New?), by [ profile] scaramouche
Pairing: Sam/Dean/Castiel
Rating: NC17
Teaser: A part of Dean will never get over the fact that Sam got to have Cas first. After all, Dean’s the one who found Cas – who was found by Cas – first. Dean has Cas’ first smile, first drink, first drop of freely-offered blood, so in the selfish part of Dean’s heart that isn’t content with the fact that Cas turned his back on all of Heaven for him, he wishes it was he who gave Cas his first orgasm.

Boys Like They're Girls, Girls Like They're Boys, by [ profile] ciaan
Pairing: Sam/Jess
Rating: NC17
Teaser: "Better get started then, or I might think you're all talk."
Notes: Sam, Jess, and pegging. I read most of the Sam/Jess that comes my way, and it's good to see something like this, too.

Another recs post! I've been doing this as I go along, and I'm posting this on only-just-Friday-morning because I'm on holiday and travelling today. Anyway, I even have a meta section this time! Enjoy.

Fic: Sherlock Holmes, SPN )


Meta: Sherlock Holmes )

(This was originally posted to [ profile] au_bigbang_vent, but it can go here too.)

In my AU Big Bang fic, a character (Dean, for those who know SPN) is mute from a very young age. I thought I'd have it be psychological, but further into the fic I'm just not sure. Possibly a combination of that and damage to his throat, given that I've described him as injured in other ways.

Anyway, the point is, I'm having difficulty writing conversations between him and the other characters. He's using sign language, but from what research I did quite a while ago into ASL, it wouldn't necessarily 'sound' like spoken discourse if translated literally. So far in the fic I've been having him 'speak' basically normally, with the difference between his sign language and the other characters' speech shown like this:

'Everything is going to be alright,' he signed, determinedly, and then jumped up.
"Where are you going, honey?"
Her smile was weary, this time. "That might help a little."

I don't want to ignore that it just isn't that convenient, but I don't want to make it too difficult to follow as a story -- and the amount of research to have him say only things that can be expressed in sign language in those terms is impossible, given my other commitments. The way I'm thinking of it is that I'm 'translating' his sign language for the reader to make it clear what he's saying.

I'm also starting to be horribly afraid that I'm just going to mess up and offend someone.

Any thoughts? My only thought so far has been to continue the way I'm doing it, and to put a note explaining that and apologising for the lack of realism.

I'm a little stalled on my Crossover Big Bang. I've done some editing and some minor adding of words, but I have a bunch of scenes I'm vaguely planning to write and nothing's coming of them. I think I'm going to give it a couple of days and then look at the plan with fresh(er) eyes, and edit it as needed -- and in the meantime, read over what I've got and streamline it or add to it where necessary.

In the meantime, and since there's a check-in on the second of February, I'm working on the AU Big Bang. I only have a handful of paragraphs so far, the opening stuff, because I'm quite sleepy this evening.

Have a tiny, tiny snippet.

On Sunday, it'll be time to post my [ profile] kink_bigbang. For right now, I have a bit of a teaser. My artist made a minimix, and so did I, so it's my minimix that I'm providing now -- and, in a couple of days, I'll be able to link to it on this post. This comes complete with teasers from the fic.
