* If you have watched and loved the music video to "Genghis Khan," then you NEED to read this coda, Just like in the pulp magazines by [archiveofourown.org profile] adreadfulidea. If you haven't watched and loved the music video, HERE IT IS AND YOU SHOULD WATCH IT NOW. (I think I've seen it about eight times now.)

* [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling is running again! This may be my absolute favorite exchange I have ever done - as the mods say, it's a "rapid-fire, double-blind, anonymous exchange challenge, in which you have a brief set of prompts, a week to work, and a lower AND upper limit on the size of your work." It is so fun.

* There've been so many hockey developments this week that I don't know where to start. Olli contract signing (<3333333)! Justin Schultz acquisition! Scuderi traded to LA because he "didn't fit in with Chicago's plans" (LOL)! We got Geno back and beat the Jets, and we called Murray up from WBS, and just, lots of hockey things.

* Rare Bears draft due on Tuesday (eep!). Sid/Geno Exchange running again, due to open signups in ~a month.

Nabbed from many people.

1. Your 3 fanworks with the most AO3 comment threads: Make Yourself at Home (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno, bowerbird AU), my new most popular fic ever. Three Christmases with Miss Honey (Matilda, Matilda + Miss Hockey), a moderate hit for YT one year that I thought might be my most popular fic until the end of time. Switch Hitter (Hockey RPF, girl!Sid/Geno, D/s AU).

2. Your 3 fanworks with the most kudos: Base Notes (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno, a/b/o) – my first hockey fic! Make Yourself at Home, again. And finally And in Health (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno). This fandom has spoiled me for kudos, basically.

3. Your oldest fanwork: A Right Sorry Couple of Vamps (BtVS/Ats, Spike+Darla), written for the Fall Fandom Free-for-All back in 2008.

4. Your latest fanwork: three's a crowd (SPN, Tamara+Sam), a weird, atmospheric little futurefic for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas.

5. Fanwork you are proudest of: ONE fanwork?? How about I just pick one that comes to mind: worn for sleeping (SPN, Jess/Sam), which is moody and creepy and has a twist and says stuff about canon, all in 1100 words. Still super pleased with how that one turned out.

6. Your longest fanwork: Still Seraph (BtVS, Spike+ensemble, mpreg), a 67k fic I finished in 2009. Have never even come close since. But I've got a WIP that might bump up close to it if I can ever finish. /o\

7. Your 3 fanworks with the most bookmarks: Base Notes, Make Yourself at Home, Switch Hitter. Hockey fandom does it again.

8. Your top 3 crossover works: I have no idea how we're measuring this. I write very few crossovers anyway, but here are three I'm fond of: This is the World We Made (BtVS/Dollhouse, Dawn+Topher), the first fic I've managed to write that really gets at how I feel about how freaking badass Dawn Summers would grow up to be. The Very Small Girl and the Monster (BtVS/Firefly, River+Spike), far-future fic for BtVS in which River meets someone who can finally explain who she is. Lift (Firefly/Matilda, River+Matilda), another River-centric crossover that gets a lot of mileage out of her dreams. Probably the crackiest crossover I've ever attempted, in terms of canons crossed.

9. Your favorite characters to portray: I'm going to assume this means "favorite characters to write, in which case Dawn Summers, Illyria, Jo Harvelle, Genevieve Cortese, Geno.

Title: three's a crowd
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Tamara, Sam
Words / Rating: 1200 words / PG-13 for language

A/N: For [livejournal.com profile] de_nugis. I did not even begin to do justice to your prompts, but I did enjoy getting to write Tamara again. I hope you find something in this fic to enjoy and that you have very happy holidays. <3

I JUST remembered that the title I had in mind for it all along was "The Man Who Plead His Belly" inspired by this bit of English law. I still think that was a fantastic title - too bad it will never have a finished fic to go with it.

Ages ago, I wrote 8k of an S3 AU fic where Sam determines that, for reasons, the way to keep Dean out of hell (for a little while, anyway) is to get him pregnant. I had a lot of fun with the worldbuilding of it, which was motivated by (if not apparently related to) some of what [livejournal.com profile] big_pink did in her magnum opus Red (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU HAVE NEVER READ). I also got a huge kick out of my OC.

I got bogged down by figuring out Plot, though, forever my nemesis. The fic has been mouldering long enough that I can admit I will never finish it, so I'm setting it free, and here it is, for anyone who's curious.

Why do one recs post in a day when you can do two? I mean, obviously. It's been three years since I made an SPN recs post (and a year since [livejournal.com profile] rocksalt_recs closed, *sob*) so obviously some of these of have been sitting around for a quite a while! Which means they are... well-aged, right? Right?

10 recs under the cut )

You can sort all (?) the SPN characters that have appeared in at least two episodes here.

Some of these were super hard decisions (Jo vs Ellen? Jo vs Amelia???), but it shook out into something I'm pretty happy with, in about three tiers: top third are the characters I love, middle third are characters I have no or conflicting feelings towards, bottom third are characters that make me say "ugh", plus all the S9-S10 characters I haven't seen.

LIST )

On the whole, I definitely favored earlier over later, other things being more or less equal. The two things I learned during sorting is that I have a whole lot more antipathy towards Ben Braeden than I would have guessed - me kicking against the convenient cute kid thing, presumably - and a whole lot more appreciation for Gwen Campbell. Clearly this means I should write some Gwen Campbell fic? :D

Also, Dean's place on the list is Dean circa S8 (when I stopped). If I could compartmentalize him and just think about Dean S1-7 or so, he'd have placed very differently.

Now I'm come over all nostalgic. *sniff*

YAY, I did this exchange last year and am super excited to do it again. I hope you are also excited! I tried to include both fluffy/sexy prompts and horror prompts for each character/fandom I requested. However, they’re just ideas, so if you have something else you’d like to write or draw related to my requested characters, feel free! I've also included lists of stuff I like in general, to help inspire you.

I have fewer horror prompts than sexy/fluffy prompts, but that's just because I had a harder time thinking of prompts. Please be assured I would be delighted by horror fic or art! Below I’ve included some general types of horror I like, though, so maybe that will help inspire you.

So not only have I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas, but I don't seem to be deleting the signup, either. So I guess I'm doing that, and therefore you should also. Signups end tomorrow evening!

Also if you're into kink, [livejournal.com profile] spn_masquerade is open for another round.

Has there been any good fic for [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen that both a) features ladies and b) doesn't involve any canon after S8? Because if there are, I would like to read them.

Also, anybody have any SPNJ2BB recs? I haven't looked there at ALL yet. /o\

General things I like: psychological horror, existential horror, weird plants, creepy ruins, creepy weird landscapes, body horror, amnesia. Kink negotiation, body appreciation, touching and teasing, xeno kink, women in charge, watersports, enemas, stuffing/belly kink (those last three are my kink trifecta; feel free to consider any of them as prompts for any of these fandoms!). A/B/O, tentacles, wingfic, steampunk vibes, mpreg.

General things I don’t like / DNW: sexual violence or threats thereof; gore for the sake of gore; death of the POV character; trauma to eyes, hands, or teeth. Larger person physically dominating smaller one, comeplay, non-con, D/s-type punishment. Infidelity, first-person POV, crossovers (exceptions noted).

Title: Ride 'Em, Cowboy
Fandom:: Supernatural
Characters: Meg, Sam
Rating / Words: 650 words / R for blood and general nastiness
Contents / Warnings: violence, blood, death of children, possession, self-harm, noncon arousal, sexist slurs
Spoilers: through S2 Born Under a Bad Sign
Summary: This is no well-broke ride; this pony tries to take the bit every damn time, and it’s a tight rein Meg keeps.

A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver as part of a prompt subversion challenge for [livejournal.com profile] spnspiration. My prompt was any variation of Sam and Meg - "Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars,". However, I think this might be a subversion only in the sense that no one is going to understand how it relates to the prompt at all. :\ I swear I had this whole thing about Sam doing the thing he does here and how it related to love, but then the horse metaphor took over. :P Can we pretend I was subverting a prompt for pony play?

DARK. Mind the warnings! Can also be read at AO3.

Give a prompt. Get a prompt. Subvert a prompt. Curious?


Oh hey, another SPN fic exchange thingy! A little bit like Spring Fling in that it has a prompt, a character, and a 500 word minimum, but a much longer lead time and also you are supposed to twist the prompt while sticking to the letter of it, which sounds like lots of fun. :D (Even though I'm not sure my prompt is really great for twistiness. Oh well. Hopefully rust and linen will charge someone's imagination anyway.)

Okay, when I say bunches I mean mostly hockey, but there's a few other things, too, which I put first.

* [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling is open for signups! This is quite possibly my favorite fannish event of any kind, just because of how it's structured - low min AND a max word count, prompts but you don't know your recip, tight deadline, anon posting. If you're into SPN at all, definitely consider giving this a try. It's way fun.

* You know that 3 Sentence Ficathon I linked to a while back? It has 3500 comments now and is still going. It's like people are pining for the prompt memes of yore. Or something.

* On the paucity of data available in women's sports (shocking, I know)

* Marc-Andre Fleury, ruiner of things

* My Geno/Flower feelings, let me show you them. Also did you know that they roomed together for the latter half of the 2011-2012 season? Did you? HMMM. :D

* The Pens did a Casino night for charity. Apparently Flower kept tossing cards on the ground if he didn't like them, and meanwhile Geno gave good face, as usual. I have about 25 posts in my Tumblr likes; IDK how I'm supposed to choose which ones to reblog.

* This article by Pascal Dupuis about his two blood clots in a year is really a gut-wrenching read.

* This failure to score a goal is like how Charlie Chaplin would fail to score a goal.

* Have a bunch of hockey microfic. Only a tweet long each. There's a bunch that are awfully fun.

FYI, [personal profile] eosrose recently made a podfic of my fic True Believers, a little short scene of Meg and Ruby meeting in S4. If you're in the mood for an SPN podfic of something short and ladycentric, maybe give it a listen! Eosrose does a nice job. (She podficced a Jared/Gen story of mine a while back, too.)

* It turns out "Take Me to Church" sounds nothing like "Get Me to the Church on Time."

* Yesterday found myself in weird position of being resident expert on classic rock as found in SPN, despite knowing basically nothing about classic rock generally. In the process, though, I found myself remembering just how much of what I loved about early SPN was the aesthetic: music, cinematography, etc. I wonder whether, if the show still sounded and LOOKED that good, I might still be watching.

And say what you like about ships or family dynamics or whatever, I think that the aesthetic was a lot of what the early fandom was responding to, too, even though they expressed it in terms like "sexual tension" and "codependence" and "h/c."

Dang it, now I want an SPN rewatch. At least of S1.

* Geno is skating again, will be going on the Canada trip, and may well be playing again as early as Wednesday! Which means chances of him playing against Canucks on Saturday are VERY HIGH! :D!!!

* (In case you missed it: I am going to visit [personal profile] flamebyrd and see the Pens play the Canucks. I am a little excited about this. Tiny bit.)

* Speaking of Geno, this gif is giving me life:
!! )

* My hockey stream the other day had multiple completely unironic ads for a farmers' dating site. I kept waiting for the joke, and it never came.
