Gosh it's been ages since I've gotten to use that kind of subject line! :D

After literally months of waiting, I finally got to post my fic for the SPN Rare Pair Big Bang today!

Title: Wait For It
Ship: Dean Winchester/Bela Talbot
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Off-screen attempted suicide; non-explicit references to canonical rape/sexual abuse re: Bela’s backstory; assumes Bela was the First Seal, so non-explicit references to Dean torturing her
Setting: Post-series AU
Summary: Dean never claimed that curing Bela Talbot was a well-thought-out plan, but falling for her afterward definitely wasn’t part of it. Or, five times Dean and Bela don’t say “I love you” (and one time they do).
On Ao3

This fic takes place in my Bela/Dean + Sam/Gen AU but is the first chronologically. I already said this on my flaily I-finished-my-draft post a few months ago, but this story has been in my head for literally YEARS, so it was such an amazing feeling to finally actually write it down. *happy sigh*

Even if you have zero interest in the fic, maybe consider checking out my partner's art cause it's shiny? :)

This is a tiny 1,200 ficlet- tbh more like a vignette or a timestamp than an actual ficlet with a narrative of its own- that I wrote during NaNo this year.  I can't post the WIP snippets I really want to because in theory they're part of my RPBB (which I doubt I'll actually complete in time, also tbh), but this is an id-dy, entirely self-indulgent Sam + Bela scene in my Bela/Dean post-series AU (that I've posted several fics from).  It takes place anywhere between 6 months to a year after Bela and Dean officially start dating.

"Sam? Can I talk to you for a minute?" )

A NSFW headcanon meme is going around Tumblr, and it instantly made me think of Bela and Dean, and since I definitely have opinions, I figured why the hell not do it.  It was a very fun break from noveling.

I got two awesome fics for Trick or Treat!

First is a very sweet Anya & Cordelia fic set in the afterlife immediately post-Chosen.  It's alternately poignant, snarky, and funny, and despite the fact that they're, yanno, dead, I found it ultimately uplifting.  I'm so far removed from BtVS fandom at this point that I didn't really expect a fill in that fandom, let alone that anyone would take me up on this rarepair friendship, so it was a very neat surprise.  Even if you don't participate in BtVS fandom anymore, I'd recommend taking a look.

I also got this AWESOME Bela & Meg fic set in a post 8x17 AU (SOMEBODY WROTE ME BELA FIC, AND SHE WASN'T EVEN IN THE TAG SET, AND IT ALSO STARS MY SECOND FAVORITE SPN LADY, HOW LUCKY AM I).  Crowley's dead, and it's called "The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship," so that probably tells you all you need to know.  :)  Fantastic characterization for both ladies, especially Meg, lots of great lines, hints of Megstiel, and did I mention that Crowley's dead?  I LOVE it!  I have a pretty good guess who wrote it for me and am looking forward to finding out for sure tomorrow.  :D

I am definitely pleased as punch, tickled pink, and very grateful that both of my treats were about female friendships (or the beginnings thereof).  \O/

[ profile] lynzie914 asked for my favorite Bela scene(s)/episode, and I was only too happy to oblige.  Beware: Here there be flailing.

Meta I posted on Tumblr last night that was inspired by this gifset, or Why S10 Is The Perfect Time To Bring Back Bela Talbot:

Everyone is thoroughly spoiled already about Dean right? )

Thinking of all the delicious narrative potential here and how it's going to be wasted makes me want to cry.

ETA: I just got the following message on Tumblr:
          Hi, could you maybe tag your anti John Winchester posts (like the one about Bela in the Bela talbot tag) with something, like anti john? thanks.

And just, wow.  I understand not tagging character hate, and I even understand tagging "anti-characters" if it's a major part of a post, but tagging "anti" in regards to a solitary reference to abusive behavior that is canonical?  Just, wow.

All I can say is, I just reblogged some really excellent meta on "Bad Boys" about how the bruises on Dean's arms were probably made by John, and I tagged it "John Winchester" because it's fucking meta, and meta = / = hate, and if you think I'm going to go out of my way to protect the poor woobie feelings of apologists who identify as "pro john" (as this person's blog says), you are sadly mistaken.

/End rant, which I did here because I'm not going to respond to this person, 30% because I believe in taking the high ground and 70% because I am actually too appalled to even begin to know how to respond.

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

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.

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 [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] snickfic.  I don’t even remember how long I have been promising her mpreg, but I am finally delivering!

Thank you to [ 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 [ profile] lynzie914, [ profile] kwritten, [ profile] snickfic, and [ profile] upupa_epops for encouraging me to continue during said meme, and finally to [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni for organizing the awesome comm [ profile] letsgetitdone, the deadline for which was what finally made me, after ten months, get it done

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: [ profile] gryfndor_godess
Artist: [ 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 [ profile] genteensybang for running the show and inspiring so much Gen/Ruby creativity.
Thank you to [ profile] smells_corrupt, my wonderful beta partner-in-crime!  ♥
And thank you to my artist partner-in-crime [ 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.

Title: Man of Steel
Rating: PG-13
Summary: It’s Halloween, and Dean’s feeling very domestic about it.  Sam can’t relate.  6,000 words.

A/N: This is a Sam + Dean/Bela fic, with every variation thereof- Sam & Dean, Dean/Bela, Bela & Sam.  It takes place in a post-canon future (but no spoilers past S4) in which Bela was rescued from Hell and she and Dean are a couple.  The boys still hunt, and she still steals, but they’re also all gradually putting down roots at her home in NY.  Takes place in the same future as this fic, though you don't have to read that one to read this.  Also, warning for vague spoilers for the end of The Dark Knight Rises.

D:B set shot

Look at these two beautiful human beings.

There are two things I often think when I see Dean and Bela in "Red Sky at Morning":
1) They should always wear formalwear.
2) Wouldn't their children be gorgeous? 

I mean, really, look at them.  Their children would be gorgeous.

So naturally, I had to cast them.

Title: Morning Routine
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Far-off future Dean/Bela + Sam domestic fluff.  1,200 words.
A/N: Takes place in a post-canon future in which Bela was rescued from Hell and she and Dean are a couple.  The boys still hunt, and she still makes Ocean look like an amateur, but when they have downtime they regroup at her house.
