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!

Trying to talk about David Bowie is one of those things where there's so much to say, I'll probably end up saying nothing at all. Or so I imagined, but here I keep making posts. Here's a fun one, a short video of Ricky Gervais talking about being pen pals with Bowie:



Well, and hey, if we're talking about Bowie writing wonderful letters, then I should include this, as well.

I am so so SO excited to announce [livejournal.com profile] tricycleman's very first fic and art challenge!

Only a 500 word minimum, and a welcoming, low-pressure place to be--if you're unsure about writing original stuff, anything goes (including thinly veiled SPN fic, if you prefer)--just be yourself and bring whatever you have to bring to it! We'd love to have you join and be a part of it! <3

Title: Chimera
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
World: Tricycle Man
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,200
Genre: gen, slice of life
Summary: Orphaned at 12, Lisa nonetheless has every reason to believe the apocalypse was only an improvement in her life.

Chimera:

1 an imaginary monster compounded of incongruous parts
2 an illusion or fabrication of the mind; especially: an unrealizable dream




Lisa dragged her wagon toward market beside the Chanel Channel, so called because somebody had somehow programmed it to give off perpetual scent. Fortunately, it smelled a lot better than Chanel, more like flowers ... which was nice, because you hardly smelled flowers anymore, since the apocalypse.

Her wagon held only a few hand-knit sweaters and some sheep’s milk, but she knew the sweaters would fetch a high enough price that the wagon would be full on her way home. Clothes, like food, were one of the things that you couldn’t create out of rubble or dirt. Well, you could, but your body couldn’t process the food, and the clothes didn’t breathe or bend right, like a sheet of plastic with armholes. So her sweaters were always one of the hottest-selling commodities at the market.

It sucked, being orphaned at twelve, not knowing how you would make your way in this strange, decimated world, but it could have sucked a lot worse, and at least she wasn’t the only one. Everyone was orphaned, in a way--bereft of family, friends, the homes they knew. All they could do was help each other through it and try to figure out what the hell happened.

Fic: Idiots

Rating: PG
Genre: gen, outsider pov, casefic, some humor, slice of Winchester life

Title: Inescapable
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: R for somewhat violent sex, bondage, dom/sub, language, violence, death
Genre: het, outsider pov, emotional h/c, comfort sex, angst
Pairing: Sam/OFC
Characters: Sam, Dean, OFC
Word Count: ~9,800
Spoilers: Takes place in the early second half of S8, after Sam has started the trials but before he's become to weak to fight effectively.
Summary: The tall guy she was supposed to lure to a hotel room and roofy seemed so sweet and innocent, such an easy mark, but he turns out to be something else entirely once she finds herself instead roofied and tied up in his bed--someone dangerous and inescapable ...


Despite the warnings, what you really need to look out for with this story is the emotional intensity--hopefully, it will make you cry (in a good way, of course). But the sex never gets too graphic or disturbing. It was a hard story to write, and it's a hard story to tag, because it doesn't fit into any of the usual categories.

"Seeing herself next to Sam, his goodness against her badness, her weakness ... maybe she wouldn’t ever be good like him, but she could be better. She could try."


He seemed like a nice boy, and such an easy play. )

Gorgeous masterlist banner by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal!

The vast majority of my fic is gen, but I have a few entries in other categories: a novel-length Dean/Cas series, a het fic, and a few SPN crossover fics. I don't write anything more graphic than R, and virtually all my gen fics are PG or PG-13. I hope you find something you will enjoy! I've grouped my gen fics in such a way that it will hopefully be easier to find something you'd like to read ....
