So here’s that deancas au I started that I can’t seem to get past introductions for the people who did want to read it. Dean is the city bus driver and Cas is a passenger. Before anyone says that’s too cheesy that’s actually kind of how my parents met so shhh.

Okay…. I love it

"I adore the way fan fiction writers engage with and critique source texts, by manipulating them and breaking their rules. Some of it is straight-up homage, but a lot of [fan fiction] is really aggressive towards the source text. One tends to think of it as written by total fanboys and fangirls as a kind of worshipful act, but a lot of times you’ll read these stories and it’ll be like ‘What if Star Trek had an openly gay character on the bridge?’ And of course the point is that they don’t, and they wouldn’t, because they don’t have the balls, or they are beholden to their advertisers, or whatever. There’s a powerful critique, almost punk-like anger, being expressed there—which I find fascinating and interesting and cool."

Lev Grossman (via theadventuresofcargline)

This is very true - I’ve seen innumerable fanfics of people saying, “I could do this better than they did.”

And quite frequently, they do.

So instead of getting more crappy, unsatisfying sleep, I decided to reread Crossroads State and managed to COMPLETELY FORGET ABOUT THE ENDING until I was like a paragraph away and OH MAN I WAS SO HAPPY I WAS LAUGHING!


I know a lot of people on my dashboard are always looking for more Dean-in-panties fic, so lemme rec We Both Kinda Liked It. I haven’t re-read it since my first read-through of it a month ago or so, but it’s terrific.

So I started reading The Request but I had to stop for a while because it described the angels in Heaven as basically humans with big wings.

Castiel has no vessel so why is he cleaning the floors all night like a human when he could just BAMF things clean, if heaven has the same general properties and rules as earth, which in verse it doesn’t really even.

Like I don’t get it angels are multidimensional wavelengths of light why are they being written as people in an army barracks with huge wings who can fly?


when you think about it fanfiction is actually amazing

there are thousands of brilliantly written novel-length stories kids wrote from their own brains about characters and shows/books/movies they love all twined into the internet and other kids read these 50k+ stories in their own time and invest themselves in it

nobody’s being paid to write it and nobody’s being told to read it, people do it because they legitimately enjoy it

that is just kind of amazing

"Dean is very much a cowboy,” Castiel tells the Impala. “And I am the spaceman.”
Human time dictates it is five-twenty-seven in the morning. To Castiel it feels like any other time.
“I’m not sure what that says of me. That I identify on an emotional level with a film meant for small children about the misadventures of toys,” Cas pauses, “but I do.”
He sighs, leaning back, closing his eyes. He mentally goes over each part of the car.
“I’m falling with style,” Castiel nods. “I am merely a toy.”
The Impala’s soul feels warm.
“You are Andy,” he tells the car. “You might think you would be the remote control car. But your name is branded on us. We are always yours. You are home.”
A pause.
Castiel grins. “And Sam is the flamboyant dinosaur."

Fic rec!

Planet Sherlock series

Sherlock has language moods in which he just starts speaking in a foreign language. John can inexplicably understand him without speaking the languages because he speaks Sherlock.

There are two fics, one in which Sherlock has a French phase and one in which it’s Italian. There are very helpful scroll-over translations.


A probably really bad Sherlock fanfic.
