I should so be doing my reading for class tomorrow, but maybe posting this'll help get Supernatural
out of my head for a bit. I finished Season 1 over the weekend and am desperately craving Season 2... But I probably won't get to watch any until next week, given how behind I am on schoolwork.
Supernatural fandom is intimidatingly enormous, and at a first glance seems a bit fractured, perhaps because there are two very strict lines that some people don't cross but others embrace with abandon -- Wincest yes/no, RPS yes/no. Beyond that, the centrality of Sam and Dean and their quite distinct personalities results in many writers more inclined towards one POV or the other, or one top/bottom preference or the other.
I have only grazed the thinnest surface of the vast amount of Supernatural fic out there, and I'm sure I'll be making many more rec lists of it in the future, of all different types. But for now, six very different fics -- 1 gen crossover, 1 implied-slash crossover, 1 het crossover, 1 fluffy rps slash, 1 gen-to-slash genderswap, and 1 pure dark slash. (It was five originally, but I just stumbled upon Red
and I just couldn't resist throwing it in.)Days Like This
. SPN/Angel. PG-13 for language, gen. Featuring Angel and Dean Winchester, with cameo rescue by Spike and Sam. Found via astolat
's rec list
, a wonderful, if woefully short in the face of my voracious appetite for fic, resource. Ridiculously delightful.What Kind of Day Has It Been
. SPN/SN. R for Dan/Casey kissing and implied Wincest. Because who can resist Dean and Sam being called into the Sports Night offices to look at Casey's floating chair? Banter and silliness of the highest degree.Red
. SPN/Good Omens. NC-17, War/Dean. A clever premise turned into an exceedingly hot het PWP.Good Idea
. R, Jensen/Jared. totally completely fabulously sweetly wonderfully hilariously adorable.Man, I Feel Like a Woman, Parts 1 and 2
and Bloodstones and Kisses, Parts 1 and 2
. R, gen Sam and Dean, progressing just barely to Wincest. "Man, I Feel Like a Woman" could be read as pure gen, but "Bloodstones and Kisses" has a definite slashiness and is a bit darker to boot. Genderswap, funny and awesome, moving towards kickass and hot.Under Hill
/Shalott. Not officially rated, but I'd say NC-17 for fairly explicit (and extremely hot) Wincest. Dean/Sam, amnesia. Amnesia may be a cliche, but Shalott's take on it is brilliant -- clever, hot, angsty, and dark like a kick in the gut.
