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!

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 ...

SUMMERGEN IS HAPPENING, and I get to mod! *evil cackle* Only two days left to fill out the form--signups close Friday evening. Summergen is glorious--all gen fic, all summer long, only 1,000 word minimum, some of the greatest writers in fandom participating, anonymous until the end, working from a prompt set we do our best to cater to your preferences--it's so fun!! You can participate, or you can just join/follow the comm and read all the wonderful stories that come out of it.

Any o' yous guys out there who have been thinking about trying an exchange, or who write gen fic, I highly recommend this exchange. Lo all those months ago when I first dipped a toe into reading fic, the fic rec page I found had a ton of fics from summergen, which was my first glimmer of a desire to become a part of fandom, so truly, I have summergen to thank for bringing me to you and all this fandom wonder.

Here, a beautiful pic for you to whet your appetite for Sam and Dean in the summertime ...


clickety-click on the pretty pic!
Title: Backgammon

Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] zelda_addict
Rating: G
Genre: gen, humor, brother time
Characters: Dean, Sam
Word Count: 290
Summary: Dean finds some games in a room in the bunker and convinces Sam to play them with him.

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!
