Title: Pharmakon
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6300
Warnings: Mentions of drug use; suicidal thoughts.
Summary: Sometimes, it’s hard to tell the poison from the antidote. Or, Dean and Amara's relationship from 9x11 through to the end of Season 11.
Author's Notes: Written for the wonderful frozen_delight, for the 2016 round of spn_summergen. I couldn’t settle on just one prompt, so this fic combines #4 (We often see Dean popping pills on screen - what are they? Where did he get them from? Why does he take them? Just something about Dean and medication, please.) and #6 (Something which explores the connection between Dean and Amara more deeply.) I just hope it does them some kind of justice.
Many thanks to viviansface and caranfindel for all their beta help. :)

Every time I try to reply to something, it either times out or gives me a weird error message. Most vexing! :-/

frozen_delight started this for Fanfic Writers Appreciation Day... which was yesterday, but let's pretend it's still yesterday, okay? ;)

1. an old fic (posted at least three years ago)
2. a new fic (posted within the last six months)
3. a fic you wish had gotten more attention (less than 50 kudos on AO3 or less than 30 comments on LJ)
4. a genfic
5. a fic focused on a female character
6. a fic which made you see a character in a new light
7. a fic which made you ship something
8. a fic which inspired you to write
9. a fic with a particularly memorable line
10. ??? (Excited to see what categories you come up with!)

My answers.Collapse )

I know I'm a little behind the curve with this, but just in case anyone out there hasn't seen it. :)
Phew! I've been living with this fic for what feels like forever, and it's kind of a relief to finally have it done and posted. It's probably the darkest thing I've written in fandom, and definitely the thing I feel most unsure about (though I feel a lot less horrible about it than I did, thanks to frozen_delight's sterling beta work and sensible words. *hugs*)

If you're going to read it, please do read the warnings/notes! Sam doesn't behave very sensibly or very well in this fic, and I know that sort of thing isn't everybody's cup of tea. Just... be aware, I guess. XD Anyway, here is The Thing, with wonderful, wonderful art by amberdreams. Even if you don't fancy reading the story, I heartily encourage you to go and check it out, because it's beautiful. ♥

Title: Via Negationis
Author name: anactoria
Artist name: amberdreams
Genre: SPN, slash, canon-divergent AU
Pairing: Sam/Lucifer
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 60,000
Warnings: [Spoiler]Major character death, very dubious consent, vague allusions to Cage torture and non-con, canon-typical violence, choking, manipulation, angst, unhealthy attitudes to just about everything.
Summary: AU from partway through 11.14. Lucifer's dead. Sam knows that. He was there; he saw it happen. But now Amara's gone and the Devil is on his doorstep, bedraggled, mortal, and apparently willing to throw himself on the mercy of the Winchesters.
There has to be more to this than meets the eye. Sam can't help feeling that he's playing right into Lucifer's hands, whether he runs and hides or expresses his long-suppressed anger. As events unfold around them, though, he starts to wonder if either of them is really in control of this thing...

Read it on AO3. | Check out the art!

First of all, thank you so much for creating for me, and I hope you've found something to inspire you among my prompts! Please feel free to combine, interpret, or play with them as much as you like. :) I think I included a mixture of Sam & Dean and minor character prompts, and I'd be equally thrilled with either.

I love all four of the regulars, and don't want to read character bashing. (Crowley can be an antagonist or general pain in the arse, of course, but I'd rather not read a fic where it comes across that the author's attitude is 'Ugh, why are you still on the show?') That doesn't mean they can't be their complicated canon selves, and make mistakes and bad decisions and be racked with guilt over them, of course. ;)

Likes: In case the above didn't make it obvious, I love angst, happy ending or not. I also love casefics, especially with unusual monsters or backstories, hurt!Dean (comfort or no comfort), folklore and fairytales, found family, slice of life type things, canon divergences, and science fiction or fantasy AUs. For art, I like both comic book/manga and more realistic styles, and anything that plays with light in pretty ways. Pretty much any character not on the DNW list would be a welcome addition, and there are things I like about all seasons of the show, so any canon era is fine by me. :)

Dislikes: I'm not keen on mundane (i.e. coffee shop, high school, etc.) AUs, or anything with a heavy focus on pregnancy, babies, or small children, including de-ageing and fic that's all about Sam and Dean as kids. Photomanips that involve the actors' faces being photoshopped onto other bodies squick me hugely. I'm not a fan of Becky, Gordon, or the Campbells; I love Lucifer in his quietly-creepy S5 incarnation, but strongly dislike the later versions; and if you're going to include John, Mary, or Chuck, please don't make them parents of the year.

Thanks again for writing/arting for me, and I hope this helps -- and more importantly, I hope you have fun!

Word count: 1400
Summary: Canon-divergent part-way though 5.13. Prompt: They both want the same thing: Sam taken apart, cancelled, for the sake of averting the apocalypse. When Sam approaches Anna to see if she can really do what she says she can, there's a real connection. But they both know what has to be done.

Title: The Furies Are at Home in the Mirror
Author: anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean, Sam, Cas
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/contains: None
Word count: 9300
Summary: Takes place shortly after 10.18 “Book of the Damned.” Dean finds an old mirror in the bunker, and makes a rookie mistake. He doesn’t like what he sees from the other side.
