SPN Masterlist: FIC

Welcome! The longer fics are cross-posted at my AO3 account so you can download them there for e-readers. Note me with questions, requests, and bugs. Enjoy!

Newest to Oldest:

Characters: Sam and Dean
Wordcount: 2,592
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Season 10, serious injury, swearing, worshiping the porcelain god
Summary: Missing scene. Dean's a day into being human again ... so far so good. Now, Sam can melt.
Author's Notes: This started as an insmallpackages fill that got a little bigger than its box. Request: "SPN ficlet featuring hurt!Sam or sick!Sam. A bittersweet feel would be awesome. Gen please." I tried!
Very special thanks to my legion of betas who saved my bacon at the last minute! No better folks, this is truth: balder12cassiopeia7riyku and nwspaprtaxis.

SLUG, or The Day Wyatt Hatfield Gave Up Hunting, Probably
Characters: Original Male Character, Sam Winchester
Wordcount: 2,293
Rating: R
Warnings: post-Season 10 by a few years, language, a little gore.
Author's Notes: A mini case!fic for the lovely safiyabat, for tumblr's Bitter Sam Girl Club Secret Santa Exchange! The fic, however, is surprisingly un-bitter, I promise. Sam is, per safiya's request: BAMF-y, psychic, smart, and--get this--rides a motorcycle. All the good things there could ever be! Oh, jeeze, I almost forgot: thank you amberdreams, for the speedy beta! *smooooch!*
Summary: When Wyatt Hatfield called Hunter Central for support, he didn't expect who showed up. THE Sam Winchester. And things just got weirder from there.

This Could Be the Saddest Dusk
Characters: Castiel, Sam
Wordcount: 1,053
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: obtuse spoilers for 10.9, [spoilers for the fic]major character death, suicide.
Author's Notes: Okay, so I was less than bouncy about Tuesday's SPN episode, for a host of reasons that I've already splattered all over everyone's journals. Regardless--or maybe in spite of it all--I was really moved by the drabbles HERE and HERE amberdreams produced in response to the ep. Please read them first! They're quick, and my ficlet will make much more sense afterwards.

Anywho, I found myself needing to wallow in the most abject melodrama and self-satisfying angst that I ever angsted. I NEEEEEDED THIS. Forgive me.

'The Worst is Not Knowing'
Characters: Sam
Wordcount: 311
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers for 10.1, language.
Summary: Do 300 words need a summary? The summary would be longer than the fic! (Timestamp for 10.1, a peek into Sam's state of mind.)

'Hard Way Home'
recipient: fannishliss
word-count: ~5,000
characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, a smidge of Castiel, and a couple of cameos ;)
genre: Gen(cest)
warnings: Season Nine, major character death (a necessary evil!), suicidal ideation, angst a'plenty
story/art summary: Divergent from 9.10: Sam, Dean and Castiel drive off together after expelling Gadreel. Everything comes back to haunt them. The Trials are not forgotten, Dean hates his life, the tiny town of Widow Jones Hollow has a few unexpected visitors, and they all live happily ever after. No, I swear, they do. (With bonus, almost SFW art at the end; no peeking!)

'Sam, As He Sleeps'
Characters: Sam and Ruby
Wordcount: ~600
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: none, really
Summary: Just what it says on the tin: Ruby, watching Sam sleep. Not creepy at all. (A 2013 insmallpackages fill)

'And She Was'
Characters: Sam and Dean
Wordcount: ~3,200
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: language, boobs, genderswap
Summary: Nothing is certain but change. The angels are falling, Dean has the King of Hell in his trunk and a pissed-off prophet to placate, but Sam isn't even close to right. When it rains, it bloody well pours.
Notes: The one where Sam has cause to hate witches as much as Dean does. Or maybe not.
Notes: Written for an anonymous Triple Play prompt at ohsam: "1. Author's choice 2. Dean 3. Genderswap.... specifically, Sam grows bewbs and they hurt." Set sometime early in Show. Season One or Two, likely. Not that important. No beta; all mistakes and absurdity are mine mine mine. Title from The Talking Heads.

'Half the Man'
Characters: Sam 'n Dean, a pinch of Kevin and Missouri
Wordcount: ~5,200
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: four-letter words, much blood, spoilers for Season Eight
Summary: Nothing is certain but change. The angels are falling, Dean has the King of Hell in his trunk and a pissed-off prophet to placate, but Sam isn't even close to right. When it rains, it bloody well pours.
Notes: Written for ladykorana's prompt at ohsam: “What if the trials really did purge Sam of demon blood? But what if the demon blood was giving him huge advantages in health growing up (height, immune system boost, etc.)? Now without it, even recovered from the Trials, his immune system is just not what it used to be, and he catches every little cold and flu going around. And maybe takes longer to recover from injuries as well." I only got through half the prompt, but it works. I think. Maybe. Much love to my team of generous betas: nwspaprtaxis, amberdreams, monicawoe, and to honeylocusttree for her patient brainstorming. It truly does take a village.

'Southern Crossed'
Characters: Charlie Bradbury and Krissy Chambers
Wordcount: ~3,000
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: the odd swear word and spoilers for Season Eight
Summary: Written for purplehrdwonder's prompt at spn_summergen: “Krissy and Charlie, the Winchesters' hunting proteges, run into each other on a job and compare notes about Sam and Dean. Oh, and maybe hunt a monster while they're at it.” I didn’t write much of a hunt, but rather a lead-in to strange times. Set in arguably the most haunted city in the US: Savannah, GA.

'Impala's Run'
Co-written with: monicawoe
Artist: adrenalineshots
Wordcount: ~22.5K
Genre: Gen, SciFi AU
Characters: Dean, Sam, Jo and Ellen Harvelle, Crowley, Jess Moore, Cassie Robinson, Gabriel
Rating: PG-13 (language, a little blood)
Summary: Sam and Dean Singer (aka Winchester) aren’t your average young Kansas farmers. Their home is very, very far from Kansas, in fact. Many light-years worth of ‘far’. The boys may look human, but certain talents set them apart: Dean speaks the language of machines, and Sam can heal through manipulating energy. Hidden on Earth by their father, their agricultural lifestyle gets rocked when warring alien races discover where they’ve landed, and Sam and Dean are forced to make the run of their lives. Written for spn_j2_bigbang 2013.
Beta: tesserae_

Characters: primarily Sam and Dean, a touch of Cas and a guest co-star
Wordcount: ~4,250
Rating: R
Warnings: the odd swear word, a little violence, a little blood. Deviates from canon a fair amount.
Summary: Sam is a desperate man, and does a few things that might piss off the Big Guy Upstairs. But there are reasons -- no better reason than family.
Notes: Hugs and puppies to monicawoe and geckoholic for Enochian coaching, plot salvaging and emotional UMPH. You're gorgeous, ladies. Without you both, this would've been poo. (Might still be poo, I suppose!) Any mistakes remaining occurred at my own ineptitude. Characters and universe borrowed from Kripke and company. Concrit ALWAYS welcomed!

(Crossposted at A03 for downloadable excellence:

'O Brother Where Art Thou?'
Characters: Benny, Dean, Sam
Wordcount: 2,707
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: the odd swear word, a little alcohol withdrawal, a little blood (hey, where there's a vampire, there's blood)
Summary: Based on roque_clasique's prompt at hoodie_time: "Benny helps Dean through his involuntary detox in Purgatory. But he starts drinking again once he's topside, and Benny finds out and sneaks past Sam to talk to him and is really sympathetic and all like, brother, I have a (blood) drinking problem too, so I understand, let's help each other out, and Sam realizes that Benny is actually a pretty good friend after all."
Notes: I dunno, roque baby, the fic turned out kinda subtle. (Gawd, not boring, I hope!) Maybe it'll fit a little of the bill? It takes place in Season Eight, between 8.14 and 8.18. Or thereabouts. And it deviates from canon. And it's un-beta'd. And concrit is always welcomed. And GO.

'Ashes Inside'
Characters: primarily Sam and Dean, a touch of Cas and a guest co-star
Wordcount: ~3,500
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: the odd swear word, melodrama, and spoilers for Season Eight (specifically 8x07)
Summary: Based ladykorana's prompt at ohsam: "When they picked Sam to be the one to use the demon bomb, no one considered the effect it might have on the traces of demon blood still in Sam's body. At first, Sam just thinks he's getting sick like he usually does around this time of year, but it eventually becomes apparent that something more is seriously wrong. Dean calls Cas for help."
Notes: Kudos and endless gratitude go out to monicawoe and tesserae_ for once again whipping my prose into shape. They are my magic feathers. Any mistakes remaining occurred after they touched the fic. Characters and universe borrowed from Kripke and company. Concrit ALWAYS welcomed!

Characters: Sam, Dean, Castiel
Wordcount: ~1,500
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Light cussing and a potentially terminal illness
Summary: The boys have settled in Sioux Falls for a less-than-glorious reason: cancer. And they get a holiday visitor.
Notes: This is a coda to Wishbone, and I highly recommend you read it before 'Good-byes' or the experiences just won't be as deliciously sappy! As per usual, hugs and kisses go out to monicawoe for alpha-reading and keeping my Dean-voice in line, and to tesserae_ for once again, being the most brilliant editor and beta-reader a writer could want. She sees the patterns and symbolism behind what is mostly intuition for me. She makes my ramble actually mean something. Any remaining mistakes are purely my own. Mine mine mine. And all concrit welcomed!

'Lessons in Making Your Own Fun'
Author: quickreaver
Recipient: eggnogged
Characters: Sam,Dean, two OCs
Wordcount: ~4,300
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: A little cussin', one very brief spoiler for Season One
Prompt: "camping fic! pre-series or not, case-fic or not. Campfires and sleeping bags!" So giftee is getting a Season One mini-case!fic, set at a campground. Outsider POV, boys being bad-ass, bring on the s'mores!
Notes: Written for the 2012 spn_j2_xmas Secret Santa exchange. Extra-special appreciation goes out to monicawoe for alpha-reading this sucker, and to tesserae_ for being the most brilliant editor and beta-reader a writer could want. Ladies, you make me pretty.

Wordcount: 3,469
Genre: Gen, curtain!fic, h/c, outsider POV
Characters: Dean, Sam, Jody Mills, a surprise guest!
Rating: PG-13 (Language)
Spoilers: Season Seven-light
Warnings: terminal illness
Summary: Very loosely based on the radiant kettle_o_fish's prompt over at ohsam: "Curtain!fic. Gen or wincest. Sam's hell trauma returns-- not as incapacitating as it was, but still bad enough to make hunting a near impossibility. Dean just can't move like he used to, slowed by drink and age. They retire and spend a few years leading blissfully boring lives in some unmemorable town, then Sam gets sick. Really sick. The kind of sick that you don't get better from."

'In the Blood Red Dust'
Wordcount: 25k
Genre: Gen, time travel
Characters: Dean, Sam, OCs
Rating: R (Language, gore, violence)
Spoilers: Season Seven
Summary: The Leviathan are rapidly infesting the world; life is getting grim for hunter and civilian alike. Out of the seeming blue, the brothers Winchester are whisked from the frying pan and into a fire, circa 1873. Dean is dumped into Mongrel, Nevada—a near–lawless mining town—where he discovers a bigger threat than protecting one’s share of the silver. Sam finds himself in the desert, no horse in sight, named or otherwise. The boys must reunite, deal with a woman known as the White Witch, address Mongrel’s pesky werewolf situation, and decide if they want to return to a doomed future, crawling with Big Mouths. Written for spn_gen_bigbang 2012.

Wordcount: 2,198
Genre: Gen, h/c
Characters: Dean, Sam
Rating: PG-13 (Language, mild gore)
Spoilers: Season Seven
Summary: Based on a prompt over at the latest ohsam comment fic meme from the vivacious downjune: "Post 7.17, Sam had his head shaved in the hospital and he mourns the loss of all that hair after."

'Two Wolves'
Wordcount: 9,375
Genre: Gen (het off-screen)
Characters: Dean, Sam, Bobby, OCs
Rating: R (Language)
Spoilers: mild Seasons Six and Seven
Summary: This was my spn_summergen offering for my darling partner-in-crime monicawoe. Prompt: "Did Sam, once re-souled, find any new scars and wonder where they came from?" Yes, yes he did. And curiosity can, indeed, kill the cat.

'Prayer Bundles'
Wordcount: 2,100-ish
Genre: Gen, curtain!fic, h/c
Characters: Dean, Sam, OCs
Rating: PG (Language, pet death)
Spoilers: Season Seven-light
Summary: Based on a prompt over at the latest ohsam comment fic meme from the wonderful de_nugis: "Gencest or Sam/Dean, future curtain!fic. This isn't triggery, but it mentions death of pets, which I know some find distressing, so be warned. Basically, I want Sam and Dean settled, damaged but living a life, and I want Sam to suffer a completely normal loss: the (ordinary, not supernatural, non-violent) death of a loved pet. And it affects Sam a lot more than you might expect, maybe because there have been so many other losses that he never really had time to process. Dean is awesome and comforting in his own prickly, Dean way; some of the isolation from each other they've undergone in earlier, larger losses gets healed." Not sure it hit all the bases, but it is what it is!
Notes: This takes place after my curtain!fic-ish story "Good Things", but it's not necessary to read it to get "Prayer Bundles." All you need to know is they've tentatively settled at Moon Gulch, Idaho because Dean busted up his knee. He works at a diner, Sam works at a Christmas tree farm and is still seeing Satan. They're sorta dating the Whitecrow twins, June and April. Enjoy!

'Burdens, Doublefold'
Co-written with monicawoe
Wordcount: ~70K
Genre: Gen, Light Het
Characters: Dean, Sam, John Winchester, Brady, Jo and Ellen Harvelle, Ash, Alastair, Meg, the Psychic Kids and OC's.
Rating: R (Language, gore, character death and off-screen sex)
Spoilers: Goes off the reservation from Stanford, Season One.
Summary: What if Dean left Sam at Stanford after the fire, hoping it would keep his little brother safe and make things better? Somehow, 'better' never seems to be in the Winchester Family cards. Sam gets tangled up with his ex-roommate Brady, tracking psychics, but dealing with demons is never honest business. Dean carries on until his father is put in grave danger. He is left on his own to deal, stumbling into Harvelle's Roadhouse for help, where Dean gets just a little more than he bargained for. Eventually, the brothers’ paths twist and turn their way back to each other, but the results could mean the End of Days. Written for spn_j2_bigbang 2012.
Beta: tesserae_ and Kimbot.

'War is Never Cheap, Dear'
Wordcount: 3,127
Genre: Gen, AU from Season One
Characters: Dean, Sam, demon!Jess, winged OC
Rating: R (Language, gore)
Spoilers: nope!
Summary: Jessica Moore was always part of the plan, but she never thought Lucifer held all the candy. Her money's actually on the Boy King. Everybody loves a longshot, right? Written for the 2012 AntiXmas Gift Exchange at sammessiah.

'Blind Luck'
Wordcount: 3,551
Genre: Gen, h/c-ish
Characters: Dean, Sam
Rating: PG-13 (Language)
Spoilers: nope!
Summary: Based on beckal00by's prompt at the ohsam comment fic challenge: "Sam is slowly going blind and it's not from something supernatural which means Dean can't fix it and oh crap!"

Wordcount: 3,739
Genre: Gen, h/c
Characters: Dean, Sam, OCs
Rating: PG (Language)
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 7
Summary: Based on roque_clasique's prompt at the ohsam comment fic challenge. After a grave head injury, Sam has never looked less like himself. The guy he sees in the mirror? That's not him. And for a kid who's trying his darnedest just to hold it together enough to believe in the rest of the world, it's pretty rough not to recognize even yourself...

'Good Things'
Wordcount: 9,000-ish
Genre: Gen, curtain!fic, teensy bit of schmoop, h/c and case-fic
Characters: Dean, Sam, OCs
Rating: PG (Language)
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 7
Summary: SecretSanta fic gift for gretazreta. A blown-out knee grounds the Winchester boys in Moon Gulch, Idaho. They get a dog. They discover what a Wishpoosh is. And maybe, just maybe, they become 'people'...

'Rabbits Scream'
Wordcount: 5,321
Genre: Gen, angst
Characters: Bobby, Dean, Sam, Hallucifer
Rating: PG-13 (Blood, language, Graphic animal deaths)
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 7
Summary: Sam is still seeing the Devil, but he's dealing. Dealing in ways he could never predict. A simple morning jog takes a wrong turn that just may put him in the right place after all. (This is a sort-of sequel to 'As Many Times As It Took.')

'As Many Times As It Took '
Wordcount: 3,363
Genre: Gen, angst
Characters: Bobby, Dean, Sam, Hallucifer
Rating: PG (little blood 'n cussin')
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 7
Summary: based on a prompt from vail_kagami for ratherastory's kick-ass 7:03 comment meme HERE. Sam's coping mechanisms, though effective, are far from ideal. Pulled from one side, pushed by the other, he needs to find a way towards sanity...

'Better Off Dead'
Artist: becc_j
Wordcount: 40,000-ish
Genre: Gen, case-fic
Characters: Bobby, Dean, OCs
Rating: R (Light gore, language, mild drug use, minor char. deaths)
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 2
Summary: As much as Sam loathes the idea of returning to California, the boys get a call from Bobby, requesting they make a beeline to San Francisco; a hunter has gone missing. A hunter Dean knew quite well. Intimately, one might say.

The Winchesters discover there are witches, and then there are witches. Some claim to walk the White Path, but do they? Or is this just cover for infernal machinations?

Between a neo-hippie commune and the exotic temptations of Chinatown’s dark secrets, the Winchesters must untangle a spider’s web of magical allegiances, missing women, and eventually…a missing brother.

'A Dog's Life'
Wordcount: 3,578
Genre: Gen, light angst and humor
Characters: the Braedens and Matt, Dean, Sam
Rating: PG (some 4-letter words but that's it)
Spoilers: spoilers for Season 6
Summary: based on a prompt from just_ruth: "After Dean leaves, Ben Braeden brings home a stray dog that may not be what he seems. (All Dogs Go to Heaven)." Fun summer reading: a little angst, a little cute, a little wet dog and unrepentant use of The Summer BBQ!

'Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town'
Wordcount: roughly 2,000
Genre: Het, schmoopy
Characters: always-a-girl!Castiel/Dean
Rating: PG (some 4-letter words but that's it)
Spoilers: very early in the angel/Winchester relationship but I really don't think I'm spoiling a darned anything.
Summary: Written for spnspringfling, a gift for redbells. Dean is left to his own devices when Sam has a rare date. Cas needs a shoulder to cry on. And nothing hurts.

'We Good'
Wordcount: 100
Genre: Gen, drabble
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: G
Spoilers: slight Season 6, blink and you miss it
Summary: Was this peace?

Wordcount: 2840
Genre: Gen, mild horror
Characters: Sam, Lucifer, Michael, Adam
Rating: PG-13, verging on R
Spoilers: takes place just after Season 5, so...yes?
Summary: Inspired by rainylemons's prompt over at ohsam for the comm's one-year anniversary! The prompt is a tad long but here's the gist: Hell-bound Mike and Lucy fight over/with/at Sam, but sometimes get so caught up in their own family feuding, they neglect him. This never lasts long, however, and Lucifer always returns to shower Sam with his own special effed-up brand of 'compassion'. (entire prompt found here: )
