It was nice to have something fun to art for - so cheers to kcscribbler for the adorable de-aging fic written for zelda_addict in the spn_bigpretzel Spring Fic Exchange! (And for the reminder that we were posting today!)
Story link coming very soon.

The art is slightly spoilery for an incident in the fic, so be warned. I should probably warn for flashing images and arachnophobes beware too...

So, I wrote a poem for spnapo.


  1. (April Fools’ Day) “I don’t like poetry. Put up or shut up.” -Meg (demon 2.0), “Reading is Fundamental.”


I don’t like poetry, Meg says.

A poem, she says, has too many tangents.
It twists words looking for rhymes,
Tries too hard to be—plangent.
Like church bells.

Poetry reminds her of clamouring priests
in churches full of hate for her kind.
Women, witches, a hate-feast
Of bitter fools.

Cas says, in the beginning was the Word
Yeah, and they said the Word was God, she scoffs
So put up or shut up

Laughable lovers write poems, Meg points out.
She can’t afford to believe in love,
It’s not what Hell’s about.
Unlike Castiel.

I wield words as weapons, Meg says.

There’s a kind of poetry in that, Cas thinks.

Title: Sam I Am
Author: amberdreams
Artist: quickreaver
Words: ~12k
Rating: NC17
Warnings: mental illness, hallucinations, a dash of incest, angst
Characters: Sam/Dean, Castiel, Meg, OCs
Summary: An alternative to the Born Again Identity. Here Castiel doesn’t immediately think of the idea of transferring Sam’s madness onto himself. As a result, Sam's brain is still fried. He escapes from the Westville asylum wing by himself, steals a car and drives until he runs out of road in Idaho. In the parking lot of a motel in a small town, Sam finds a kind of peace for a while.

Acknowledgements: All the thanks and love to my betas, ameliacareful and firesign10, they made this fic so much better! Many thanks also to the sammybigbang mods for creating and wrangling this challenge. You are awesome, chaps!
The art is by quickreaver so you know it's going to rock, right? Well, what are you waiting for - go and check out the ART MASTERPOST HERE.

My second spn_j2_bigbang art post is for a pretty epic fic by winchesterpooja - The Song of the Ravens. I don't use the word epic lightly - pooja's taken on creating an AU after episode 3.15, and an alternate of season 4, with the added twist of the boys being separated. To retell a whole season in a completely new way was no mean task, and I'm looking forward to reading the whole fic uninterrupted as we've both been working up to the wire on this one!

song of ravens banner final
Summary: With barely two weeks remaining for Dean to go to Hell, Sam isn't coping, and Dean is hell-bent on making it all seem like small consequence. After all this, a mysterious string of deaths, and a subsequent case in Texas was all they needed to hammer in the final nail in the coffin. Interfering with this case proves detrimental to Sam and Dean, as they're left looking for each other in ways that they never expected, against odds that they can't even begin to imagine.
Will they find each other in time, or will the circumstances of their separation become an advantage to other evil forces?

The rest of the art:
Lots of art under the cut! )

balder12 won one of my offerings in the fanworksauction auction for sylsdarkplace - and by the way it is not too late to donate even though the auction is now over. So balder asked for some art to accompany this rather beautiful story, and I was happy to oblige. Everyone is Trying to Get to the Bar has some wonderfully descriptive passages, with amazing imagery about Castiel's true form, and the nature of Heaven once you get outside of the human regions, and I thought I'd give one particular scene a go.


Initially I liked what I'd done, but now I'm not sure I'm happy with any of it! So I've stopped fiddling and will let you judge. And read the story, if you haven't already!

I've added Cole, Abaddon and Rowena. Cain and Crowley next!

Today I decided I need a poster to get signed by everyone at Asylum 14, so I've started on an idea based round a t shirt design I did (to cheat a bit and save some time!)

War amongst the rebels

***********
SPN100 Drabble Challenge: word count 100
Challenge word:  mad
Warnings: None
Summary: Castiel is carrying more than souls inside him, there are darker things contributing to his God delusion.

***********

Red mist descends. Everything is red – crimson, carmine, alizarin – blood. Who’d have thought madness would look as beautiful as this; like a hundred glowing sunsets across the sedimentary layers of the Grand Canyon.

Ironic, really, when its origins lie in the molten tar-blackness of the thousands of leviathans that squirm inside him.

Red clears to crystal blue. Finally Castiel can see the destruction he’s wrought – dark shadowed wings burnt into grass no longer fresh and green.

He waits for the horror that never comes; then after a moment, he smiles.

God looks on his creation and it is good.

***********

 This next one is part of a set of six, all by different writers - you can read the set on fanfic.net.


Donut Fear
***********

SPN100 Drabble Challenge: word count 100
Challenge word:  mad
Warnings:
Summary: Sheriffs Mills and Hanscomb join the Winchesters, Castiel and Crowley on a haunted train.

***********

The train whistle screeches as they enter a tunnel.

Donna’s not scared. Nope. She can cope with a simple ghost hunt, you betcha. It’s no worse than dealing with Joe Wiggins when he gets drunk on a Saturday night.

She follows Jody’s lead, searching the carriage for anything this ghost might be attached to. She doesn’t know what happened to the Winchesters, but the tense set of Jody’s shoulders speaks volumes.

Guess they shouldn’t have made the ghost mad. She’d been close to shoving Dean’s over-protective ass off the train herself, mind.

Not until after he’d shared his donuts though.

Reveals are up over at spn_bigpretzel and crowleysxmas so now I can post this here - my fic for theymp
Title: Charlie is my Darling
Author: amberdreams
Recipient: theymp
Characters/pairings: Sam, Dean, Castiel, Charlie, Dorothy
Words: ~2100
Warnings: A few F bombs
Summary: For the Ymp’s prompt - Someone in the bunker unwittingly develops the ability to enter and control the dreams of others - but it takes a while for them to realise that this isn't just a really weird dream of their own. Ok, so technically Charlie isn’t actually in the Bunker any more, but close enough, huh?

Apropos of nothing, I present to you a brace of drabbles.

Merry… Kiss Cas?
***********
E/O Drabble Challenge: word count 100
Challenge word: star
Warnings: Lots of implied and actual kissing
Summary: Christmas in the bunker – nobody’s dead or particularly demonic but Castiel is puzzled. Why does everyone want to kiss him?

***********
Accepting the Winchesters’ invitation to a Christmas party should not have been this hazardous, Castiel thought. He dodged Charlie’s flailing arms, only to smack into Kevin. Who promptly climbed Cas like a tree to plant a huge, rather sloppy kiss on Castiel’s cheek.

‘Lemme, ‘s my turn!” Charlie tugged at Kevin who slid down on top of her to form a giggling heap on the floor.

In the background Crowley was belting out Star of Wonder with Sam, demonstrating an excruciating lack of harmony.

Cas tried to make his getaway, only to walk into Dean’s arms.

“Mistletoe crown, Cas? Really?”

***********

Chuck’s Legacy
***********
E/O Drabble Challenge: word count 100
Challenge word: star
Warnings:
Summary: Sheriffs Hanscom and Mills get snowed in. Luckily Jody has brought something good to read.

***********
“Snow’s gotta be three feet deep. There’s no way we’re going anywhere until the ploughs arrive in the morning.”

Jody helped Donna bank the fire nice and hot before pulling a couple of paperbacks out of her bag.

The two sheriffs sat in companionable silence, broken only by the rustle of pages turning, until Jody gave a great guffaw.

“Oh man, ‘like staring into the sun’, Dean, really?”

“Gonna read Tall Tales next. Mine’s a bit sad, they’re just drinking beer and staring at the stars.”

“Yeah, those boys. Killing you with laughter one minute, killing your heart the next.”

Ok I didn't have a completely wasted day cleaning the house, because I managed to do this daft little pic for sigrundora to get signed when she galivants off to the States next week, the lucky duck.

I wrote this double drabble for a valentine gifting because I suck at reading rules properly! LOL
So I thought I may as well post it anyway.

I hate tumblr - I get lost there for hours but then again, I find things like this...which is just fabulous.
Here's the link to anobviousaside's tumblr but make sure you view it full size (right clicking and view image did it for me) because it is beautiful and you need to see the detail.
cas by anobviousaside

And speaking of beautiful - here's one of my JIB 4 photo ops with me photoshopped out of it. It's not the greatest photoshopping effort but the best I could manage. Ok I know, I've effectively turned it into a Destiel/Cockles picture but I couldn't resist.
