Title: Junkdrive
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
World: [livejournal.com profile] tricycleman
Rating: PG
Characters: Dieter, Angel Man, Sarah
Genre and Warnings: gen, depression, self-destructive tendencies, self-modification (mental modification), horrific concepts
Word Count: ~1,400
Summary: Dieter has never considered himself fully functional, never not been depressed or anxious, never been happy. He's never been how he wants to be, felt how he wants to feel. Fortunately, in New Detroit, there just might be a way to fix that.

This story references events in this (quite short) story, even if it's not a direct sequel.

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that I am INCREDIBLY FREAKIN' EXCITED ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE. It started yesterday and runs through next week--check out the awesome stories (and soon, art!, not to mention the glorious photos [livejournal.com profile] blackrabbit42 took and posted to promote the challenge) over at [livejournal.com profile] tricycleman!

Obviously the brain stem and the cerebrum were right out. So were the hippocampus and everything that had “thalamus” in it. It all came down to the amygdala. Of course.

The amygdala took up a shocking amount of the code of the human brain, for being such a small physical presence within it. Worse, much of it was either the beginning or end of some if/then statement, which originated or terminated in some other part of the brain.

On the plus side, from a programmer’s point of view, the vast majority of it was meaningless, lines of code floating there with no evident purpose, like descriptors or notes to oneself a programmer might leave so he didn’t lose his place or so he remembered what a particular bit of code was for, or the beginning of a process that went nowhere and wasn’t worth hunting down and deleting, because it didn’t adversely impact the way the program ran. In other words, useless.

Title: The Winchester Way
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG
Genre: gen, angst, mindfuck, retcon, psychological torture, hurt!everyone, conceptual horror
Characters: Sam, Samifer
Word Count: 1,200
Summary: Sam was willing to do anything to get Dean out of Purgatory--anything at all ... Dean just never knew it.

"Third: act disappointed to learn your brother was alive. Oh, the look on Dean’s face ... Lucifer savored it still. When he played it right, he was able to draw it out of him any old day, knowing the pain of that was still as fresh for Dean as it was the very first time."

Title: Kintsugi
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG-13
Genre: gen, intense angst, h/c, emotional h/c, brother feels
Characters: Dean, Sam, OC
Word Count: 4,600
Warnings: language, horrific concepts, mentions of child abuse and torture
Summary: Dean needs a new protective sigil tattoo, and he visits the tattoo artist other hunters recommend--the only person in the area who's precise enough for the work. Getting two words in a row out of the guy is hard labor, but undeniably worth it in the end.

Kintsugi is a Japanese method of mending broken pottery with gold, where the pot is considered more beautiful for having been broken.

Title: Rumpelstiltskin
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG, not even any language
Genre: gen, wee!chesters, angst, h/c, 4.03 episode tag, fairy tale, metafic
Characters: John, Dean, Sam, Azazel
Word Count: 2,600
Summary: Sometimes, life is like a fairy tale, at least for the Winchesters--not the happy cartoon movie versions, but the grim original ones, where happy endings are all too rare.

This is a gift for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas exchange for [livejournal.com profile] sophiap.

He’s sweet. Kind. Even after the war, after everything, he still believes in happily ever after. )
Title: Boundless Love
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG-13 for language, a corpse, and disturbing situations/concepts
Genre: gen, deathfic, angst, horror, hurt!Dean
Characters: Dean, Sam's body
Word Count: 1,000
Warnings: character death, spoilers through 9.01
Summary: Sam didn't say yes to Ezekiel, and a broken Dean struggles to come to terms with it. THIS IS NOT A FEEL-GOOD FIC.

"Dean wrestled Sam’s body out to the Impala, where he carefully buckled him into his seat and tilted his head so it looked like any other time his brother had sat beside him in the Impala."
