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!

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.
Title: Blood in the Water
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brightly_lit
Rating: PG
Word Count: 300
Genre: gen, angst, alcoholism, 10.7 episode tag
Character: Dean
Warnings: heavy angst, alcoholism
Summary: Drunk Dean starts thinking about things he usually tries not to.

This is an early Christmas present for [livejournal.com profile] a_starfish, who made me this incredibly beautiful art for "In the Garden of Eden." (If you haven't already seen it, go look at it now now now!!)

I loved this sea-themed art of hers from the first moment I saw it, the whole metaphor of it, as well as the amazing scope of such a massive conceptual piece, so I wanted to write a fic to go with it. Hope you like it, dearie!


Dean's heartbreaking description of the end he imagines for himself to Cole in 10.7 helped this fic go where it did, as well, so I suppose it's also something of a 10.7 episode tag ...

CHECK IT OUT--[livejournal.com profile] sylvia_locust podficced my soulless!Sam humor duo of fics, "Donut Run" and "Donuts on the Run." Here's the podfic--with art, too!!! SO COOL--I've never been podficced before (although I just for the first time recorded one myself), and podficcing is just the coolest thing. Yay for reading out loud and hearing each other instead of just reading each other!

Anyway, she did a great job--check it out! :-D
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:

I promised the person who guessed all the code names for bands in this fic a congratulatory drabble (more like a ficlet, as it turned out), and this is it! [livejournal.com profile] zelda_addict, you rock! I deviated slightly from your prompt, hope that's all right.

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!

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."

A couple nights ago, I rewatched 8.03 (to see Jensen’s dad!). Though it aired third, it was filmed first (so Jensen, who directed, would have time to prepare)--it is fun to see J2’s hiatus tans, so unlike their usual Vancouver pallor. ;-)

S8 doesn’t get talked about much anymore. The consensus (which I agree with) seems to be that as a season it was a mess, with very many subpar episodes, at least compared to the level of quality SPN sustained during the previous 7 seasons. Indeed, 8.03, on second viewing, is virtually nothing but exposition. While infinitely superior to Buckner/Ross-Leming’s most infamous episode, “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits” (although an argument could be made their racist truck episode takes the top spot), it’s also lame and boring, especially on second viewing, when you already have some idea what’s going to happen. However, I want to give credit to Bucker/Ross-Leming for always having had a knack for writing the relationship between Sam and Dean quite well, and again, that was the high point of this ep.

Given that it was the first episode of the season that was shot, they’re delving into the issues between Sam and Dean that S8 intended to explore for the first time, and in retrospect, they seemed crystal clear--and, in light of everything that’s happened on the show since, quite interesting and potentially illuminating, especially in terms of Sam and Dean’s current issues. The setup is simple: fresh outta Purgatory, Dean’s love for the job is renewed; he’s invigorated, since the ‘purity’ of always knowing what to do there (i.e., kill everything in sight) was something he liked. Sam liked what he did during that year, too: living a normal life. Their two desires could not be less compatible. More than once, Dean gustily declares his pleasure at being back where he’s happiest: in his baby, his brother at his side, hunting monsters. Sam, always more circumspect by nature than Dean, doesn’t say as plainly what he’s feeling, but it’s written all over his face: this is not where he wants to be. This thing that Dean wants is palpably, in every aspect, NOT what Sam wants.
