Started this one and got maybe half a scene in before I stopped. The prose here is hard to read - a combination of run-on sentences and not enough punctuation, I think? But in the "still learning how to write" way, not the "wannabe literary genius" way.

Summary: Sixteen year old Adam Milligan-Winchester wasn't expecting to get the hots for the new priest at his church but Father Michael ends up being too much for Adam to ignore. Having a crush on your priest certainly makes life a bit difficult. Falling in love is even worse.

Will this be the doom Adam expects it to be? Will the bond even take? And, for the love of the gods, will anybody ever tell him why it's so vital that he begin submitting to the bond practically before he even shakes off the dust from travel?

word count - 22,190

Summary: There's a legend in Salem, of three sisters accused and hung for the crime of witchcraft, but not before they had killed several of the local children and placed another under a terrible curse. It is said that on Hallowe'en night, when the moon is full, the witches will rise again when a virgin lights the Black Flame Candle.

A little over three hundred years later, Sam Winchester is passing through town trying out his newly awarded independence on what he suspects will be a simple salt-and-burn; why can’t things ever go like he plans?

art by [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver


word count - 13,000

summary: sequel to The Devil’s in the Details

When Sam opened Lucifer’s Cage, the only thing he found inside was Lucifer’s grace – his grace. With the return of his grace, Sam remembered his past – his war against the Host, his Fall, and his plans to bring about the End.
The thing is…he doesn’t want the Apocalypse anymore. He likes things the way they are, and tries everything to keep his identity a secret- especially from Dean. Of course, the four Horsemen, Hell and Heaven have other ideas.

(Anonymous) 2012-08-29 06:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Fluffy but fun. The characterization is a bit crack - you'd expect a lot more emotional fallout from Sam's "Crap, I'm actually Lucifer" realization, both for him alone and between him and Dean. However, the plotting worked for me, and the author pulled in a lot of fun plot elements.

Also, the art's neat. Quickreaver's Death is really excellent.

Summary: When it comes to things they aren’t meant to feel, Anna and Castiel are on the same path, they’re just traveling at different times.

(Anonymous) 2012-09-22 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
So, this has a lot of Anna/Castiel-type interaction in it, but it's not shippy Anna/Castiel.





Basically, Anna and Castiel help motivate each other to rebel against heaven, but up to the part that I read (about the first half), they were motivating each other independently, without actually, like, having a relationship. I got the idea that they were warming up to actual relationship-type activities, like possibly sex? But I didn't get that far.

In general, I didn't quite buy this characterization of Anna. She felt... too soft? I don't know. Heaven is an awfully hard backdrop to try to write backstory in, but this backstory of how Anna feel didn't work for me.

Also, for a fic written for a big bang specifically focused on het, it felt like there were a lot more Dean/Cas feelings (at least from Cas's side) than Anna/Cas feelings, which I found unsatisfying.

And then I skipped to the end, and apparently Michael kills Anna (during 5.13?) at Castiel's request, because she's bitter and "not herself" anymore. DDD:

Conclusion: I'm not really sure what I want in an Anna/Cas epic, but this wasn't it.

How many more of these are there? We don't usually start individual threads for exchange fics. They usually get grouped together.

That said, this was nice enough. I like the idea of Amy visiting Sam at Stanford and the two of them needing to talk to someone who knows they don't come from normal backgrounds, but the sex seemed kind of pastede on to me.

word count - 26,480

Summary: Gabriel gets one last message from God at the Elysian Fields Hotel: "Go back and make it right." It's not until Lucifer turns his sword back on him that he realizes exactly what God meant, and he's not able to get away before the blow strikes. But go back he does--landing in a hospital ER where Dean lies dying, and Gabriel's just a few steps away from death himself. The only way he knows to follow Dad's order is to stop John's deal, even if it kills him. Naturally, Zachariah has a Plan B... but fortunately for the Winchesters, so does Gabriel. And Dean's not afraid to turn Trickster himself if it means saving Sam's life.

FD thread for last year's fic - http://spnanonhaven.livejournal.com/14687.html?thread=80122463&style=mine#t80122463 - poor story, looks like nobody liked it.
