s_c and I have a longstanding tradition of making up songs to the tune of other songs. Vegas might not have been much fun for us, but I DID come up with this ode to spaghetti, to the tune of "Sound of Silence." (This is not in fact my first ode to spaghetti, nor, I'm sure, will it be my last.)

Hello pasta my old friend
I've come to chow on you again
with the noodles softly glistening
and the meat gently sizzling.
And the sweet of the pasta is a counterpoint to the beef
and basil leaf ...
Amid the sounds of slurping.
Ohhhkay, I got an ad at the top of the page for an "Asian beauties" site! Wonder what on EARTH made them think that would have anything to do with my all-SPN all-the-time journal?
This looked like too much fun to resist ...

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Friday I ruled Canada as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). In May I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). Last Wednesday I turned [livejournal.com profile] cleflink in for eating carbs (3 points). In April I signed my organ donor card (28 points). In February [livejournal.com profile] jagfanlj and I donated clothes to the needy (11 points).

Overall, I've been nice (761 points). For Christmas I deserve a red Radio-Flyer wagon!

Sincerely,

Cribbed from everyone.
Title: 'Man's Best Friend' Benefits Do Not Include a Retirement Plan
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG for mild language, innuendo, brief mention of sexual kinks, disgusting dog behavior
Genre: gen, spoof, humor, crack
Characters: Dean, Sam, Portia, James, LeChat/'The Cat'
Word Count: 1,700
Summary: This is a fix-it fic/spoof of the execrable "Man's Best Friend with Benefits," because I just couldn't let the episode stand as it was. Hopefully it'll ease the pain of watching that episode. Funnies! Get your funnies here.

"Do you always go around with a duffle full of shackles and chains, Dean??” Sam asked, stunned. "Because that hardly seems practical. Wouldn’t handcuffs have sufficed? They’d be a lot more space-efficient, that’s for sure ...”

Fic: Shards

Title: Shards
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Crossover: Supernatural/Princess Tutu
Rating: PG for a teeny bit of iffy language
Genre: um ... literary crack!fic? Your guess is as good as mine. Also, teen!chesters, evil!sam, soulless!sam, angst, light romance, high school/boarding school, mystery, hurt/comfort, fairy tale, gen
Characters: Castiel/Princess Tutu-Duck, Sam/Mytho, Dean/Fakir, Ruby/Rue, Bobby/Mr. Cat, Gabriel/Pikae, Balthazar/Liliae, God-Chuck/Drosselmeyer
Word Count: ~10,600
Summary: Sam has lost his soul, and it's up to the angel Castiel to collect the shards and return them to him without letting anyone know what Cas really is ... but Sam's girlfriend Rueby and his brother Dean stand in Cas's way ....

A fairy-tale-esque retelling of how Sam's shattered soul/mind got put back together, based on the plot of Princess Tutu.

Notes:
There is absolutely nothing normal about this fic (just like there's nothing normal about Princess Tutu), but hey, death to normalcy!

And if a show named Princess Tutu sounds lame to you, give it a chance! It is actually awesome. Needless to say, since I am probably just about the only fan of both shows on the planet, readers will be people who like one of these shows who will give this fic a chance.

Princess Tutu and Supernatural are two of my favorite shows ever in the history of the world. Once I started noticing the similarities between the two shows in terms of plot, theme, and character, I couldn't resist writing this rather psychedelic fic. (Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda for helping me flesh out which characters and plotlines corresponded on each show.) Nonetheless, the differences have prevented me from having to include many, if any, spoilers for either show. Because both shows are so wonderful and similar, I have to recommend each to fans of the other, if Supernatural fans can tolerate ballet and Tutu fans can tolerate horror, weaponry, and lots and lots of dick jokes.

There's no particularly deep reason why Cas is a girl here. Castiel in angel form is genderless, and Princess Tutu/Duck is a girl, so it just made sense. It ended up working well for the story; plus, it's hilarious casting Gabriel and Balthazar as petty teenage girls. ;-)

Wanna try Supernatural? It's not hard to find. Maybe someone will even be kind enough to leave a link in the comments ....


Once upon a time ... )
Title: He Gripped Him Tight Down There
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG-13 for language, innuendo
Characters: Sam, Dean, Cas
Pairings: Um ... all, and none.
Genre: Humor, crack, spoof
Warnings: Subtle but racy innuendo, so ... just like the show.
Word Count: 1,200
Disclaimer: Not mine, and if they were, look what I would do to them!

Summary: My first time through the series, I didn't see all the Destiel and other subtext; I just thought Cas and Dean had a baffling, highly dysfunctional friendship. But once I started seeing all that subtext, I CAN'T STOP SEEING IT. I've grown convinced the writers ship these characters at least as hard as the fans do. Some moments are particularly outrageous. So this story is my only-slightly-less-subtle-than-the-show spoof of all that stuff in the series. The title refers to Cas having gripped Dean tight down in hell, of course. ;-) Enjoy!
