Because all the cool kids have them. Fanfic only here; anything original is friendslocked.

I make no claims to owning any of the characters used in my fanfic. I am making no money from writing these stories. (Or any other ones--chance would be a fine thing!)

Title: 'Til Morning
Author: anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas(ish), Sam.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers through 10.05.
Summary: It’s the look in the kid’s eyes. The one who’s gotten up like Cas, with the munchkin-sized trenchcoat and the ridiculous painted-on stubble and the fluffy white wings from a kid’s Halloween costume. Dean leaves Marie and rounds the corner of the stage, and there she is. Standing with her face upturned to the light and singing like—well, yeah, like an angel. If you shut your eyes and just listened you could probably forget about the wobbly sets and the costumes that don’t fit and the fucking robot and all the rest of it.
Dean’s got a scarecrow to kill and no time for any of that crap, so he tears his eyes away and makes himself forget about it. But it comes back to him, later. The look in her eyes.

Author's Notes: Thanks to amberdreams for the beta! ♥

So, I know quite a lot of my flist is doing spn_reversebang this year. Which is awesome! There was so much great art and there's going to be so much great fic. :D

Unfortunately, the posting date my artist and I have been assigned (Jan 5th) is both my SO's 30th birthday and the first day of term in my job, so the chances of my being available to do anything but run around like a headless chicken are slim to none.

So. Uh. Would anybody be willing to swap? I think pretty much any other day would be fine, and my artist is fine with any posting day too.

About this time last year, I was just getting into SPN in a fannish kind of way -- completely by accident! -- and was feeling pretty unsure about the prospect of dipping my toes into the fandom. Because everything I'd ever heard about it was WANK! SHIPWARS! HORROR! and I'm so incredibly conflict-avoidant that I'd pretty much resigned myself to maybe posting the odd fic to crickets and hiding in the corner and not talking to anyone.

Well, I think you can guess how that went. ;) Because yes, sure, wankshipwarshorror, all of those things exist. But around these parts, at least, they're massively outweighed by the sheer creativity and thoughtfulness of people in the fandom. I was feeling pretty down in the dumps about my DCBB fic last week, because my assigned artist had vanished without contacting me. But then not only did alexisjane step in and produce some fabulous banners/headers/dividers (which you can see on the fic), but now kalliel and amberdreams have made art of their own. Which is also awesome! Go look at it!

This is me being ridiculously happy about fandom. And in that spirit... tell me what's making you happy at the moment? Fandom things! Non-fandom things! All the things! Happy post. :D

Title: Clean Air
Author: anactoria
Artist: Unfortunately it looks as though the original artist has had to drop out, but I was lucky enough to have the incredibly talented alexisjane offer to step in. Thank you so much! ♥
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural; Dystopian AU
Pairing(s): Dean/Cas, Sam/Jess, minor Dean/Lisa, past Cas/Balthazar
Rating: E
Word Count: 121,000
Warnings: Canon-similar levels of character death.
Summary: Centuries after the surface of the earth was devastated by an unknown disaster, the remnants of humanity live in a series of vast underground silos, each unaware of the existence of the others.
For the inhabitants of Silo 34, the silo is the world, and the only world they know. Questions about the outside world are forbidden, and asking them is what got Dean Winchester's parents killed. He isn't even sure himself that they weren't crazy.
That all changes when he hears a voice on the radio -- a voice from another world.
Notes: Written for the deancasbigbang challenge 2014. Thanks so much to frozen_delight, beenghosting, and brightly_lit for all of your beta help -- you're all awesome. ♥ ♥ ♥

Read it on: Just AO3 at the moment, but if anyone really wants to read it on LJ, let me know!

I'm loving this idea. XD (And struggling to keep focused on my BB instead of running off to write 10.1 fic, argh.)

beer mat

Is the thing in the picture above...

...a beer mat?
...a beer coaster?
...just a plain coaster?
...something else I will tell you in comments?

It's for important fic-related reasons, obviously. XD
