But first, 2 quick thoughts-

1. Christine Baranski as fem!Cain in genderswapped!SPN Y/Y?  WANT.  My other S8/S9 gender swaps include:
-Tricia Helfer as Gadreel (originally I was going to make her Bartholomew, but he didn’t last long enough to deserve Helfer)
-Martha Plimpton as Metatron
-Alan Tudyk as Abaddon
-Eric Stoltz as Naomi

2. I actually really miss Bobby.  I never thought I’d say that, but at least he wouldn’t be afraid to give Dean the kick in the ass he deserves.

Theory! With spoilers, of course )

My mid-April to mid-May, a summary:

+ April 19-20, AKA Easter weekend, I went to Awesome Con in DC.  It was, indeed, fairly awesome.  You might be familiar with some of the folks I met:

Photos! )


+ Last weekend April 24-25, my family went to Williamsburg (about 2.5 hours from where I live) to go to Busch Gardens (an amusement park) and stay at the Great Wolf Lodge (a fancy-schmancy hotel w/an in-door water park) to celebrate my sister's impending graduation from William & Mary.  We took her BFF with us, and for the most part it was a good, fun weekend, but my sister's asshole boyfriend was there for most of it, and he was hungover most of the day at the park (because he is the kind of person who gets shit-faced the night before his girlfriend's family comes into town for an extremely expensive outing), which I suspect is the reason we had to spend two hours at lunch/in the arcade instead of going on more roller coasters, and he made my sister cry that night at the bar where she'd wanted the BFF and me to meet her college friends (it was such a long day, omg, I had to wake up at 5:45 AM to leave, and I didn't get to go to bed until 1:45 AM), and basically I loathe him and if my sister marries him, which is a distinct possibility, I don't know how I'll ever be able to look her in the face again, and I certainly would have a hard time being her maid of honor, but that's probably a moot point because she would choose the BFF over me as MoH anyway, because when she was crying and we both went to her she asked me to please go sit down but took the BFF into the bathroom, and I dragged myself to a loud, raucous bar when I was literally falling asleep on my feet for her sake because it was her celebration weekend, but I didn't spend a minute of it with her because she was either with the boyfriend or the BFF, and can you tell I'm bitter?

Fortunately, little brother and I are used to hanging out on our own and had an AWEOME time on the water slides the next morning when sister ditched us again to nurse BFF's hangover.


+ This weekend (actually, 1 hour from now when registration opens) is the SPN con.  It goes through Sunday.  On Monday I am bussing to NYC to hang out with an flistie for the afternoon.


+ Next weekend is my sister's actual graduation and because my dumbass parents didn't bother to check their calendar before letting my brother audition for the middle school play, which is the same weekend, I am staying home to chauffeur him around and act in loco parentis.  I am more peeved about my parents just deciding I would miss graduation than about missing the graduation itself (my sister skipped mine, so it was always assumed I would skips hers, too, either out of spite or lack of interest), but I'm still disappointed to not see her graduate because believe me, it has been a long and uncertain journey.

But my aunt is coming to help with our dog because I don't do dogs, so that makes up for it- my aunt is my BFF and I did not get to see her in NY at Easter with my parents and brother, so I am thrilled that we'll have a weekend to ourselves without my mom around to get jealous.  And even though I'll be chauffeur, at least I'll get to sleep, which I will really, really need after three weekends in a row of go-go-go.

And then the weekend after that I will be free of commitments, except for a potential movie night with CasTEAel boy, who wanted to see me last weekend or this one and was thankfully understanding when I explained that I literally had no time.

All of this is combined with work being really busy, too (I worked at home until 11:30 PM on Monday, ugh), and so all in all I am very, very tired.  So tired and busy that I've barely been on Tumblr in two weeks (not having wi-fi at Awesome Con broke the habit, as did becoming obsessed with 2048), which is bizarre for me (in some ways it's been a relief because the current events stuff I saw usually made me miserable, but I also miss seeing friends who are only on Tumblr now; I want to see them, but at the moment the thought of going on Tumblr just seems so tiring and like a waste of time; I'm afraid of being sucked in again and not being able to claw my way out).

Not being able to sleep in/recharge on the weekend has really taken a toll, but fortunately I planned ahead and took today off so I could prep for the con (which really just means exercising for the first time in days, watching TV, and driving to/checking out the hotel), and I have next Tuesday off, too, to recover.

The exhaustion has made me less excited about the SPN con than I expected to be.  The show has also contributed to that, of course.  I hate this season.  I hate what the show's become.  I hate most of the characters.  I hate the idea of people at the con fangirling all over it like it's the best thing since sliced bread when really it's a cesspool of misogyny and self-loathing and sociopathy.  I hate that the little pro-lady part of fandom I was in is greatly diminished since last year (albeit for understandable reasons); I had originally taken Monday and Tuesday off so I could do write-ups of panels, but now I don't see any point to that, as I don't think anyone would actually care.

It's just really sad to think that I was more excited for the con last July when I bought the tickets than I am now, the day before.

I just found out on Tumblr about the third (four?  fifth?  third for shows I care about, but I heard a few other ladies were fridged this week) major character death this week, and I am reeling.

I don't even know how to do a read-more cut for this because obviously just saying what shows they are is a spoiler.  If you're on Tumblr chances are you'll have heard about all three of these, so I'm not going to name names, just, spoilers for several popular TV shows beneath the cut!

Read more... )

Now I'm even more nervous about the TWD finale, which is this coming Sunday, and I was already anxious because my favorite said the stupidest thing last night.

TWD spoilers )

It's not even May.  Why is killing off major characters during non-sweeps week becoming the new normal?  It's not fair.

In conclusion: Except for when John Ritter and Dax died, my life was much less stressful when the only TV I watched was Star Trek and ABC Family/Disney Channel shows.

And also, I might go off the deep end this coming Sunday.

Title: Too Late, Too Little
Summary: Dean wants more than Bela’s friendship, but he can’t ask for that, not on February 15th.  6,000 words.
Characters/Ships: Bela Talbot, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Castiel, pre-Bela/Dean, offscreen Megstiel
Rating: PG-13
A/N: This fic takes place in my post-series Bela/Dean, Gen/Sam AU that includes Morning Routine, Man of Steel, and Rain Day, but it’s the first chronologically.  This AU assumes that Bela came back as a demon and the boys cured her.  This particular fic is half schmoop, half angst, and 100% domestic.
Also on AO3.

Title: Quickened
Summary: Jo’s pregnant.  Now comes the tricky part.  2,800 words.
Pairing: Dean/Jo/Castiel
Setting: Post-Apocalypse?  Doesn’t really matter, it’s an AU happy future!
Rating: R
Warnings: a wee bit of mpreg, tentacle-ish sex, CRACK & SCHMOOP
A/N: I offered a drabble to anyone who found my [livejournal.com profile] spnkink_meme fill, and [livejournal.com profile] snickfic said she was in the mood for Dean/Jo/Castiel.  I wrote a bit more than a drabble of course because who am I.

I would just like to note that this could have been called “A Well Conceived Plan” or “Second Time’s The Charm,” but I RESTRAINED MYSELF.

I got an anon message on Tumblr tonight asking me if I could recommend Bela/Dean fics.  Apparently I have posted enough Bela/Dean fic and/or ranted enough about them in tags that complete strangers (presumably) want my opinion?  I dunno, but it gave me warm, fuzzy feelings.  Which I needed when I realized that I could only think of FOUR fics to recommend.  FOUR.  Now granted, I don't check the AO3 tag religiously, but I do check the "Bela Talbot" Tumblr tag religiously.  *wibbles*  It is so strange to have gone from reading/writing a juggernaut ship like Spuffy to a teensy-tiny, not-even-remotely-canon ship like Bela/Dean.  There is so little out there, relatively speaking, and when I do find fic that's well written, the characterization is sometimes untenable, like Bela enjoying non-con b/c Dean is a Special Snowflake, which is disgusting to begin with but then you add in her backstory, and WHAT THE FUCK, WRITER.  *shudders*  I guess coming from Spuffy of all fandoms I should be used to problematic, non-con-related characterization (UNDERSTATEMENT), but Spuffy fandom was so much bigger that it was easier to ~cleanse the palate, so to speak.

Anyway, in case anyone here would like to see the fic recs I'm putting on Tumblr:

1. set out running (but i take my time) by [livejournal.com profile] electrumqueen.  It's a post-S5 fic in which demon!Bela has escaped from Hell and re-connected with a very broken Dean, and it's beautiful and poetic and extremely bittersweet.

2. had it coming by [livejournal.com profile] snickfic. This is a delicious, sexy drabble, and afterward you will mope despondently that it is only a drabble.

3. Opposition Research by victoria_p (musesfool).  This is a missing scene from "Red Sky At Morning" that explains how Bela nicked the hand of glory from Dean.  It's hot, it's in-character, and it's so plausible that it makes me gnash my teeth at the writers for not giving us a similar scene in canon (because seriously, if not during sex, how in the world did she get that hand out of his breast pocket).

4. unmistakably hers by sablize on AO3.  This is probably my very favorite Bela/Dean fic, partly because when I first read it, the characterization and scenario were so close to my daydreams that I felt like someone had read my mind and it had been written especially for me.  Bela is mysteriously resurrected and calls Dean for help, and he drops everything to go to her.  The reasons behind their sudden affinity aren't explicitly stated, but there are enough hints to draw conclusions, and the result is nervousness and tenderness in equal, perfect measure; this fic is just so very lovely.

Title: On the Treetop
Summary: Dean’s pregnant.  He needs his baby mama like he needs a hole in the head.  And Sam won’t stop treating him like an invalid made of glass.  His contract’s not up for two more months, but this already feels like Hell.  AU S3, pre-Dean/Bela.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,300
Warning: Mpreg!!!
AO3: Also available here
A/N: This fic takes place in the same AU as Waiting Game and Silent Night, but it is the first chronologically, so it’s definitely not necessary to read anything else first!

This fic is dedicated to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] snickfic.  I don’t even remember how long I have been promising her mpreg, but I am finally delivering!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] upupa_epops, who ran an Unfinished Business Fic Meme in July that inspired me to get back into this fic (which I started last February), to [livejournal.com profile] lynzie914, [livejournal.com profile] kwritten, [livejournal.com profile] snickfic, and [livejournal.com profile] upupa_epops for encouraging me to continue during said meme, and finally to [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni for organizing the awesome comm [livejournal.com profile] letsgetitdone, the deadline for which was what finally made me, after ten months, get it done

Title: Rain Day
Summary: Some early mornings are worth waking up for.
Pairing: Sam Winchester/Genevieve Cortese
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,400
A/N: Because I have a hard time shipping Sam with anyone who doesn’t look like Genevieve Cortese, I like to pretend that the comatose girl whose body Ruby used had a twin sister.  Sam sees said twin, assumes she’s Ruby, tries to kill her, gets knifed for the trouble, and then falls for her, because he’s a little messed up like that, poor boy.  This snapshot takes places in the same Bela/Dean post-canon AU as “Morning Routine” and “Man of Steel” (but it’s not necessary to read those first) and was inspired by this post from Tumblr:

note to self don’t think about your otp curled up together in bed, legs and arms all tangled together between blankets to fight off the cold and listening to the sound of rain and each other’s breathing, faces buried in tangles of hair or against the other’s chest/neck and pressing little kisses against their cheek or their shoulder or their neck and mumbling about how lucky they are to have the other because you will get feelings and then cry

I come bearing Halloween treat fic for [livejournal.com profile] sagetan!  I wanted to write you a Gen drabble and failed miserably!  And by failed, I mean I wrote almost 7,000 words instead.  So while it is dedicated to you, please feel no obligation to read it because it is very, very long.

Title: Explaining to Dragons
Summary: Everyone knows that dragons are terrifying, but Prince Jared would still rather live with one than marry Prince Jensen.  He just has to convince the dragon that he'd make a better companion than meal.  Unfortunately, the very teensy, very nosy woman already in its cave doesn't seem to want to help his case.
Fandom: SPN RPF.  Specifically, Jared Padalecki, Genevieve (Cortese) Padalecki, and off-screen Jensen Ackles.  While one of my personal life goals is to make one of my siblings famous enough that I am someday a secondary character in someone’s RPF AU, I don’t know whether J2’s siblings feel the same, so rather than use their names, canonical characters also appear in this fic (and I killed one of them.  Sorry).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,900
Warning: Jared is an omega who has felt like a freak his entire life because of the pervasive intersex phobia in this world.  If institutionalized phobia of that nature triggers you, please be warned.
A/N: Title is an homage to Patricia C. Wrede’s The Enchanted Forest Chronicles.  I haven’t read the series in over a decade so any similarities besides the basic premise of royalty-runs-away-to-dragon-to-escape-marriage are completely coincidental.


There was no sign of the dragon at the top of the dragon's cliff. )

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.).

Over two months ago, I fell in love with a potential a/b/o verse, and I started scribbling down sentences whenever I could (literally, I was writing in a notebook at red lights during my commute).  It was only ever supposed to be a lark, a short, “Things I Am Not Actually Writing” post.  It turned into 5,500 words.  It is still something that I Am Not Actually Writing, although I do hope to dabble in the verse again at some point.  Maybe even try my hand at a/b/o sex.  *wibbles*  But for the moment it’s good to finally be done with it because that leaves me with just two short fics to write on my plate (and one thing that’s just for fun), and then I’ll possibly be done with fandom for a while.  Not because I want to be done with fandom, but I have to focus on studying.  Seems like the time for it, too, since it’s hard to feel creatively inspired when canon is prohibitively depressing.

So here’s the A/B/O Thing I’m Not Actually Writing, starring Gen and other familiar faces.  No spoilers past "Jus in Bello."  :D
* * *

­­When the other woman burst into the bathroom and Gen smelled alpha, she smiled, because unlike popular rag-mags, Gen did not believe that every other alfemale was out to steal her (hypothetical) omega, and in fact, she was pretty sure that ladies who were considered freaks of nature in large swathes of the country should look out for each other.

Gen Teensybang Fic Masterpost
Title: Silent Night
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gryfndor_godess
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] sagetan
Fandom: SPN
Pairings: Ruby & Bela, Ruby/Sam, Ruby/Lilith, Bela/Dean, Ruby & Dean
Word count: 9,300
Rating: R
Genre: AU-S3/S4
Contents: Warnings for references to past mpreg (this fic takes place in S4, but in S3 Dean was pregnant with Bela’s baby) and references to Bela’s abusive childhood.
Summary: Babysitting Dean and Bela’s brat after they went to Hell was so never in Ruby’s plan, but with them out of the pit now, efforts to free Lucifer are finally back on track, if a few months behind schedule.  There are still occasional blips, though, like the boys deciding to batten down the hatches on little Mary Winchester’s half-birthday.  Fortunately, while Sam and Dean wallow in their paranoia that history’s going to repeat itself, Ruby and Bela have each other, not to mention lots of wine.

A/N: This fic takes place in an AU in which Dean became pregnant with Bela’s baby in S3.  They traded the Colt for an extension on Dean’s contract so that he could live until the baby was born in August; he was rescued by the angels at the end of October, so the S4 arc timeline is pushed back by a month.  “Silent Night” is a companion piece to “Waiting Game,” which takes place while Dean and Bela are still in Hell and Mary is in Sam and Ruby’s care; however, it’s not necessary to read “Waiting Game” first.

A/N 2: This fic is split into two posts only because it's too long to fit into one; there's no break between the "chapters."  Second post is here.

Thank you to the mods of [livejournal.com profile] genteensybang for running the show and inspiring so much Gen/Ruby creativity.
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] smells_corrupt, my wonderful beta partner-in-crime!  ♥
And thank you to my artist partner-in-crime [livejournal.com profile] sagetan, who drew the most beautiful Ruby, Bela, and Sam a girl could hope for.  Go see for yourself and shower her with adoration.

Title: And On The Seventh Day, The New Queen Rose
Rating: R (warnings beneath spoiler cut)
Summary: It’s been a good week.  On Tuesday, Cas came home.  Wednesday, they killed Crowley.  Thursday, they trapped Naomi in Heaven.  Friday, Kevin finally answered their calls, and tonight, Dean celebrated at the local bar and christened the Batcave with a cute little brunette.  Yeah, things are finally looking up.
Word Count: 3,800
Warning:The sex is consensual while it’s happening, but it is definitely of the dub-con variety, and afterward, one of the participants feels violated and like he violated someone else.  There are also non-explicit references to past torture.

Ugh, today has been one of those days where I haven't accomplished anything.  I woke up at 6:25 (on a SATURDAY) because I had to use the bathroom, and once I got back in bed I realized there was a horrible many-legged bug on my ceiling (as I'm in a loft bed, this is much more disturbing than you might otherwise think because t's only about three feet away from my face).  After steeling myself to smash it dead, I was too wound up to go back to sleep, and so I lounged around for a while and then got up to run (6 miles!) before breakfast.  Other than that, I have been woefully lazy and unable to do anything, mostly because I'm so tired that all I want to do is sleep.  I have tried to write, but porny fic is still being stupid, so then I considered working on mpreg fic, only to realize that there were actually many AU details that needed to be figured out first.  They may not all be precisely relevant to the fic, but I am OCD and anal-retentive, so even if the reader does not need to know things like "in this AU, do Dean'n'Sam'n'Bela know that Lilith holds Dean's contract in March," I need to know them.

And making up AU details means having to make up head!canon details first because unsurprisingly, S3's timeline/world-building is awful (GDI writers' strike, you ruined everything) and there's not actually a lot to work with.  Like, exactly when did Bela give Crowley the Colt?  There were three months between "Dream A Little Dream of Me" and "Time Is On My Side."  That's a lot of time to account for.  If she gave Crowley the Colt, when did she talk to Lilith and learn about Dean's deal?  Did she know about it before she stole the Colt (I am choosing to assume she did not)?

So I've spent far too long going through transcripts of S3 episodes, I've still probably missed details, and I succeeded in making myself very mopey about (a) Bela and (b) Dean going to Hell.  Blah.

I hate those days when you're so tired that all you want to do is wait for night to roll back around so you can try to sleep again. Such wasted potential.  Like Bela Talbot.  So here's a meme:

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni: Post the first lines of the last 21 fics your wrote.
Adding from [livejournal.com profile] snickfic: Post the ending lines, too.

I'm not including my [livejournal.com profile] genteensybang fic since it's un-posted, but I am including the first lines of my two current WIP (SPN S8 and a/b/o) because I'm inconsistent that way.  And if the first line is dialogue, I'm including as many sentences as the person speaks in the opening rather than cutting them off at literally one sentence.

First Lines )

Last Lines )

And it had Sam this time, too!  \O/  But the boys were fighting.  /O\  But it also had Gen!  \O/

Basically, Gen was the party-hardy, airhead baby of a rich family, a la the Ewings in 8x14, and the boys were freaking out that she looked like Ruby.  I don't know how Dean ended up at the club where she was, if he was trying to find Gen or if he and Sam were fighting, but Gen snuck up on him and flirted with him and then MADE OUT WITH HIM (like, SERIOUS FRENCHING, YOU GUYS), and for a few seconds Dean was totally into it, and then he realized what he was doing and yanked back.

And then the "camera" panned to Sam, in ultimate bitch-face, and it turned out he'd BEEN THERE THE WHOLE TIME and saw the make-out, and THEN MY HEART BROKE.

And then we saw Gen swaggering out of the club, and a DEMON flew out of her, and then real!Gen was confused for a tick but then shook it off and bounced off to have more fun, smiling and looking utterly adorable.

I love trying to figure out where my dreams came from, and I think I can thank [livejournal.com profile] smells_corrupt for the Sam/Ruby + Gen feels I had yesterday.  I also skimmed a short Dean/Ruby fic yesterday, not because I ship them as anything but snarky in-laws but because I was curious as to how that worked, so I guess that's where them MAKING OUT came from.  And then I think Gen was inserted into the Ewings scenario because I've been idly daydreaming about how I could write a crossover with Kris Furillo as manager of the barn.

TWO SPN DREAMS IN ONE WEEK, HOW LUCKY AM I.  And hey, there was Dean!kissage in this one!  Not with me, BUT IT'S A STEP CLOSER.  :P

And I got Sam like I wanted and Gen as bonus!  I seriously could have done without Sam being so upset, though, and Dean betraying him.  On the bright and shallow side, Dean/Gen making out was extremely hot.  And Dean's shocked face as he jerked away was priceless.

More, please?  :D
gryfndor_godess: (Bela Talbot)
YOU GUYS, [livejournal.com profile] smells_corrupt IS WRITING SUPERNATURAL FIC NOW.

AND IT'S SAM/"French Mistake"!GEN WITH SAM/RUBY UNDERCURRENTS.  Or else it's SAM/RUBY WITH SAM/GEN NICENESS.

Either way, it's AWESOME.

Like Ruby.

Y'all should read.

And encourage her to write more.
