First, a rec.

I spent the early morning reading [livejournal.com profile] dotfic's The Syntax of Things, which I totally missed back in June, and its sequel A Better Fate than Wisdom. It picks up where season four left off and takes it to completely right places. It's Castiel/Dean, and makes it work with Jimmy, with dreams, with the distrust and complete openness that exists between them. At the same time, she manages to do more than justice to relationship between Sam and Dean at the core of everything.

Next, I started watching Dogma this evening. Good lord, I love that movie, and I would be such a happy fangirl if someone could find a way to crossover the two.

Third. I think I have mild acid reflux. This is new and unpleasant and might explain (along with the crazy schedule) why I've been losing weight recently? Not a lot, but disproportionate to the volume I've been eating.

OMg, I just got the bestest birthday present:

For They Are Yet But Ear-Kissing Arguments

In which Dean wakes up with the vestiges of a Puck's curse and Dei manages to make donkey ears the hottest thing since wings. :)

Go. Read. Now.
krisomniac: (spn walking)
HALOOO from VACATIONLAND!

1. Just about done with S3 of SGA, and I have a couple thinky thoughts. Spoilers? )

2. Go read [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing's new installment to her Supernatural FBI-verse To Catch a Thief. It's awesomecakes.

3. I think I'm gonna go visit some friends in PA for the night, so meanwhile:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
krisomniac: (spn sampuppy)
OMg, maybe it's the exams talking, but I am still giggling after several rounds of the awesomely brilliant story/game by [livejournal.com profile] gray_light and [livejournal.com profile] dea_liberty.

The Supernatural Choose Your Own Mary Sue Adventures: Sue You

Go. Play. Enjoy.

I am back to studying Ophtho.
krisomniac: (spn sam)
If you haven't yet, go check out Sleepwalking in the Land of Magnets and Memories, the [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen piece written for ME!

After that most amazing and promising of titles, the story is perfect in its follow-through. Set post AHBL2, it tackles some of the toughest issues brought at the end of the season with clarity and carefully constructed setting and a perspective I hadn't even considered yet. Brilliant.

It's a lovely story of our boys coping the only way they know how, by throwing punches and hunting things, and trying to explain without actually saying a word.

It's love, in a nutshell. Go read. (and THANK YOU! to whomever wrote it! MUAH)
krisomniac: (spn samkiss)
Guys, the good just keeps on rolling in.

[livejournal.com profile] amchara wrote me happy schmoopy BIRTHDAY FIC! Push. It's boys wratling and discussing Very Serious Business the way all serious business should be discussed-- with one of them in a headlock.

“I don’t get you,” he says. “Didn’t you ever want anything other than this life? Something other than Dad’s crusade?”

And maybe Sam’s imagining it, but he thinks he sees a flicker of hesitation in Dean’s eyes but his voice is steady enough when he answers, “There isn’t anything else.”


Great stuff. Go check it out. Push.

~ and THEN

[livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing went and wrote MORE birthday fic! Tales of the Wild Country. It's the story of Sam and Dean, doing what needs to be done, sun-freckled and on HORSES! I kid you not.

There were plenty of jobs to go around. Swarms of evil creatures roamed the country, more than Sam or Dean had ever imagined possible.

They were in a different world now.


Brilliant premise, and I'm not going to give it away by saying more. Go read. Tales of the Wild Country.

~

Read more... )It made me very happy.

I also made yummy banana cake with cream cheese frosting for a work cookout Saturday night. Comment for the recipie.
krisomniac: (frolic)
Guys, you RULE! Thank you all for the birthday wishes and Dei for the pressies, [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit for this beautiful bag, and in the long-standing tradition of making me swoon with awesome birthday stories (see: Fires of Bone and The Only People for Me are the Mad Ones) [livejournal.com profile] ignipes has done it again.

The Edge of the Known World, a sequel to Cartography in Empty Spaces -- my favorite 'verse going.

Besides having the coolest, cleverest title, it's everything you ever wanted in the story, Sam doing his best to take care of his big brother when neither is quite sure what Dean even needs, the Impala, lost memories, parking tickets, barbed wire, and the ring. I still don't have words. Just read it. And enjoy.

other birthday ramblings )

Hope all your weekends are going well! I'm off to bake a cake and watch the Belmont. Post time is about 6:00 EST.
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
If you haven't seen it, and like me, you wonder about the people the Winchesters meet on their winding road.

[livejournal.com profile] amchara has filled that void. At least for Kat, the tough-as-nails shotgun-wielding, blonde from Asylum. It's long and plotty with surprise guest stars you'll love as much as I do.

With Eyes Wide Open

Check it out!

Skiving off

I got out of lab at 2:30 today (what a treat) and decided that, since I will be spending the entirety of the next two days-- fourteen hours each-- at school/work/hosting lectures/lecturers, I would skip my evening EVERYTHING, and putz around the house.
'Cause I was born a ramblin' woman. also cut for dr. who discussion )

If you haven't signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen GO NOW.

[livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen

It's a fic exchange with some fantacular (is SO a word) prompt ideas. Also, the mods have given you free reign to explain what you do and don't want from it-- from people who hate green, leafy vegetable!fic to those who only want to write biblical crossovers. Seriously. I have no idea how they're going to match people up, but I'm fairly sure it's going to be a grand time.

so if you've never written for Supernatural before (yes, I am looking at YOU), are a seasoned veteran (that would be you), or know the show inside and out but rarely write (you know who i'm talking about now)-- GET TO IT!

It's gonna be a long summer waiting for S3. (Don't burst my bubble. There WILL be an s3.)

Fill it with [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen

And finally, today's wisdom from my surgery prof:

"Surgery is like making love; both require adequate exposure and gentle tissue handling."

hee!
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
So just when I have to buckle down, get jiggy with it, not count my chickens, y'all post COOL STUFF!

Stop, already. :D

[livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit drew this Awesome picture from my prompt for Flying Marauders. :)

[livejournal.com profile] musesfool started a (not-so) anonymous love meme. Go love on people!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] ignipes is having a rec-a-thon over at her journal for any author/artist/person in the Supernatural fandom who you think doesn't get the respect or visibility they deserve.

Go forth and rec.
krisomniac: (spn s/d facepaw)
Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing You make this fandom such cracked out fun. Seriously, kid, you're one in a million.

Also, The Black Donnellys premiere and new Heroes are on tonight, Lyra's birthday. Coincidence? I think not. I think it rather one more bit of proof that she's part of a secret universal conspiracy to spread the bro-loving. :D

~

Now for the rec: If you haven't read [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing's story Emeralds and Poppies, you haven't lived. And I say this with the authority of one who has. Several times.

It's a Supernatural, Jo-centric, Wizard of Oz crossover with Wincesty overtones, and to call it crack would both be utterly true and the greatest understatement since my grandmother called chocolate 'okay'.

Like all good crackfic, it's inspired by the gods of mischief and keeps you laughing the whole way through. But it's true to the characters and a brilliant look at Jo post-Born Under a Bad Sign (spoilers through that episode).

I can't recommend this story enough. The way the dream is not-a-dream and the two stories are woven together is mind-boggling in it's brilliance. I also, thanks to her, have discovered a little kink for only-not-really-heartless!Dean made out of tin.

Read it NOW!
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
Dean. Genderswap. American Gods. Werewolf. California. Perhaps the most smoldering story I've read in quite a very long time.

A Change in the Water by [livejournal.com profile] sanyin

Don't let the genderswap scare you off (though for this fandom, I would be extremely surprised if it did).

It's long and plotty with the writerly craft of the best pwp. You feel for John and hate him just a little. Dean makes one hell of a girl. And Sam? What's there to say about Sam but that he makes your heart melt just a little inside.

Go. Read it. Now.

I think I'm gonna go read it again.
krisomniac: (spn brothers)
1.
First off, if you haven't yet, get your bum over to her journal and read [livejournal.com profile] ignipes' stunning story for [livejournal.com profile] spn_vday: A Thousand Miles from Nowhere

It's a series of poignant and touching vignettes that flawlessly show the ways that Sam and Dean love each other. They love each other by jumping in front of the monster, by following when it's easier to stay, by brawling and hitting and sleeping in, by noticing the things that no one else does.

Weeks turn into months, months into years, and before long he stops counting the miles, but Sam never stops counting the things he learns about Dean.

Go. Read it. Now.

2.
I am in love with the codas that came out of Born Under a Bad Sign and plan to put together a master list for my own reading pleasure (and anyone else's whose interested). If you've read or written one, link it here! YaY!

They finally closed the university, thanks to the snow. I stayed home to shovel the drive. Picspam )

Brrr... Having trouble building a fire.

Thank you so much for the virtual chocolates, [livejournal.com profile] obeetaybee. I've been chowing all day.

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] thistlerose!!

I hope you have have a lovely day. You keep me in touch with the world and always keep my flist interesting. Wishing the best new year on you and your kitties. :)

In other news: If you haven't checked them out yet,

[livejournal.com profile] amchara put together a fantastic Supernatural Gen Anthology. Not only is it a collection of killer stories appropriate for all ages, but pay special attention to the cover art and illustration. They're just perfect.

[livejournal.com profile] drvsilla wrote awesome Supernatural prompt fic with Sam and Dean and Giant Trees in California. It's soft and artistic and made me all kinds of happy. (Sam/Dean, R)

~

Thank you for all the car advice yesterday. Got it checked out-- busted wheel bearing to be fixed tomorrow.

In the meanwhile, I'm going to pretend that I didn't have the Top Chef marathon going for the entire day.
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
If you're here and if you have any passing interest in two boys called Sam and Dean, you'll likely have already seen this. But on the off chance you have not, let me take a moment to rec the latest heartbreaking and magical story by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes.

Cartography in Empty Spaces

Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_christmas, it's the story of the two-year anniversary of Dean's death on Christmas Eve. Told from Sam's point of view, the emotions are as raw and barren as the wintry Nebraskan landscape she evokes so well. Told in three parts, something very unexpected happens, and Sam's left to deal with the consequences of Dean's amnesiac return.

Uttery different from the bos we see in canon, they're also pricelessly familiar.

Go. Read it. Now.
krisomniac: (Default)
Boo ElJay for not sending me any comment notifications.

YAY for the best Procrastination in the history of EVER (and it says something about my current state of sanity that I'm so highly amused by random words/sentences/paragraphs... I just keep pressing the button to see what the monkeys say!
krisomniac: (spn s/d wide eyes)
(And who else loves the fic in prolific?)


Two recs, one author. If you haven't yet, and even if you have, and you need to kill the hours before tonight's Oh my GOD, it's gonna be scary good episode, Go read:

Dust on my Shoes, nothing but Teardrops and The Kids are Alright by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes

Totally different feel and story and look into the Supernatural verse. I can't even decide which I like better; angsty boys taking care of each other, or Ellen--the most ass kicking woman this side of the Pacific.

Just read them. Now.
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
Back from the big apple with apples, and recs, and some very exciting news.

---

First, if you haven't already, go prompt some crossover fic for [livejournal.com profile] omniocular's October challenge.

It's more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

---

Second, if you were gone for the weekend, or abducted by aliens, or had your head shoved into a barrel full of monkeys and managed to miss it, [livejournal.com profile] ignipes wrote some DAMN STEAMY skinnydipping Winchester not-so-genfic.

Like Water

It's silly and funny and hot, cool and starlit, muddy and slimy and splashy and wonderful... like only a lake in the Adirondacks after a long day swamp-monster fighting can be.

And just because I can't help but quote one of my favorite... passages:

Sam rolled his eyes toward the starlit sky and sent his voice well into the falsetto range when he answered: "'Oh, Dean, thank you so much for saving our lives! How can we ever repay you? We've never been saved from a swamp monster from somebody so strong and manly as you!'" Sam's voice dropped, and in a fake lisping alto he went on, "'That's right, old buddy, old pal, why don't you let Susie and I take you back to our hotel room and make it worth your while. Me and the wife, we're a little adventurous, if you know what I mean. Can you teach me how to--'"

Dean decided he had better interrupt before Sam really got going. "Yeah, so? They were grateful. Big deal."

He couldn't deny that Marvin and Susie had been very grateful. More grateful than he'd thought any married couple could be, to be honest, but hey, they met all kinds in this job. It wasn't like Sam would've been any happier if he'd shut them down by saying, "Hey, guys, thanks for the offer, but I'm fucking my little brother here and I seriously doubt you can suck cock better than he can. How's that for adventurous?"


Like Water, read it and enjoy.

---

In totally unrelated news: Apparently Time Warner of Central New York has heard the masses. We are getting the CW network--not for a few more weeks, but at this point, I'm just overjoyed we get ANYTHING.

Y'all enjoy the premiere without me. I'll just wait 'til Thursday to spoil myself but good, oogle the stills, and pretend I saw it. :D
krisomniac: (spn eyes)
Just wanted to drop in to point out this story to anyone who hasn't read it yet.

Qanat by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes

The title refers to "a water management system used to provide a reliable supply of water to human settlements or for irrigation in hot, arid and semi-arid climates. The technology is known to have developed in ancient Persia, and then spread to other cultures, especially along the Silk Road as far east as China as well as by Arabic cultures as far west as Morocco and Spain." The story is so much more.

Yeah, she did it again. It's everything a Supernatural story should be; frightening and endearing, painful and cathartic.

It's a coda to Skin that touches on so many of the little things that happened in that episode; Dean's loss of his identity, Sam's intuition, a history of hunting in the sewers. Speaking of sewers, she does terrifying and gross like no one else in the fandom. And the scenes with Dean as a kid? are so spot on without being sappy or idealized that they just break your heart.
krisomniac: (spn dean chews pen)
First, the rec:

If you haven't read The Intolerable Acts by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes (PG-13, gen). Stop reading right now and go do that.

It's fast and frightening, creepy and sweet--enough to make you laugh and cry and be afraid of the dark. It's Sammy, twelve and naked and handcuffed. It's Dean saving the day and scaring the hell out of me. It foreshadows what's to come and fills in a little bit of the past.

Just go. Read it.

Second, I got my DVDs today!! Whoot!

The gag reel is ten minutes of heaven. And that's all I have to say.

Of course that's not all I have to say. Who're you kidding? Cut for spoilers from the Museum of TV and radio panel discussion. )
