Title: Revelation
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4,200
Characters: Sam, Dean, Mary, Lucifer, original hunter characters
Genre: gen, hurt/comfort, intense angst, some humor, heroism, badassery, family feels, the consequences of growing up without a mother, hunter gathering
Summary: It's a good thing Mary hasn't asked her sons much about what they've been up to while she was dead, because they'd just as soon she didn't know about most of it, especially Sam. Maybe she wouldn't want anything to do with him anymore, if she knew. Unfortunately, it's no longer his choice.

"Sam really didn't want their mom to know Sam had been some kind of freak who had visions and was the devil's chosen vessel, that they'd both spent a great deal of time in hell .... Looking back, there was very little to go on the list of 'things you want to tell your long-lost mother about.'"

Spoilers through 12.6.


I LOVE S12. I've often felt inspired to write fic, watching this season, but never so much as watching 12.6, which included or hinted at things I've always wanted to see in canon: mainly, for Sam and Dean to finally get some of their due from other hunters for all their amazing accomplishments, and for Mary to get to know about them too, so this fic is putting all of that that I wanted to see into a story, plus more. I hope you like!

I really liked the first episode of this season, like everyone else. <3 I guess Dabb knows how we Sam girls like to see Sam. ;-> And I LOOOOVE the way Sam, for the first time ever (except at the beginning of S8, which I kind of consider 12.1 a fix-it for), believes he's really alone in this world, no Dean. He fights so hard, and he's so strong, but he's only one man, swooooon. I keep feeling like there's fic somewhere in there, but I haven't been able to find it yet. (Ideas? Volunteers to write it? ;->) MAY THIS SHOW LIVE ON FOREVER. I mean it.

This is a slightly early Christmas gift for [livejournal.com profile] kalliel. She really dug my first podfic, so it seemed like the perfect gift to give to podfic one of her fics.

This is an amazing fic, absolutely beautiful and indescribable, about Sam and Dean watching Carhenge go up as kids and revisiting it later. Here's my mini Reader's Note: I've actually been to Carhenge! While we were there, a class that was studying Stonehenge was there on a field trip because it was the closest they could get to Stonehenge. I'd always thought Carhenge was kind of a big joke, but seeing how remarkable it is, and listening to their teacher compare it to Stonehenge with such gravitas and respect, I realized it's a strange but amazing achievement.

Finally, I cannot more strongly recommend that you go read [livejournal.com profile] kalliel's author's notes for this fic, possibly before you actually read/listen to the fic; it gives real-world context for all the fic's events that makes it that much more intense.

I hope y'all enjoy! Especially you, [livejournal.com profile] kalliel! You were one of my first friends here, and your generous spirit is such a big part of making fandom what it is.
This was a review that kinda turned into a meta, but no longer than my usual reviews ...

Fic: Boxes

Title: Boxes

My first podfic! [livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda asked me to podfic one of her fics, and, well, even though this one involved singing (! -- only a little, though), I picked it because it hits me so deep. I had to pause now and then throughout recording to weep softly--seriously. I edited those parts out, but you can probably still tell. :-}

Here are the headers, and here's the link. Download it while the downloadin's good:

Title: A Marine Aubade
Author: [livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda
Performer: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG-13, for angst and disturbing concepts (it's gen)

Length: 22 minutes
Summary: Sam might be lost to the ocean forever. And Dean might have to let him be.

Title: Faithfully
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Recipient and Artist: [livejournal.com profile] mamapranayama
Fandoms: SPN/Psych crossover
Rating: PG for a teeny bit of language
Genre: gen, humor, resolution fic, case!fic (kinda), brother feels
Characters: Dean, Sam, Shawn, Gus, Lassiter, mention of Cain's bees
Word Count: ~3,400
Summary: Sam and Dean follow a lead on a possible werewolf case in Santa Barbara, where no one seems to be who they say they are at the local police department, especially that Shawn Spencer guy claiming to be a psychic ....

Written for the 3rd annual Spring Fic Exchange over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel. With fantastic art from [livejournal.com profile] mamapranayama!

Notes:

- Feel free to read even if you aren't familiar with Psych; I don't think it'll infringe on your enjoyment of the fic.

- Setting: late S9 for SPN (so I could have a little fun with Lassiter/Cain), early S2 for Psych (because that's all I've seen of Psych so far!).

- Setting a SPN fic in the latter half of S9 inevitably brings up Sam and Dean's relationship issues--I couldn't avoid addressing them, but a lighthearted fic also gave me an opportunity to handle them in a way that left me feeling happy--hopefully it'll do the same for you!
