You Best Believe I'm Yours
wincechesters | PG-13 | Siobhan/Kristen, mentions of Dean/Cas, Spoilers through 10x05
Kristen's mom would probably kill her for wasting energy on something like the school musical when she should be working on bringing her grades up and applying for colleges, but she just had to audition when she found out they were performing Supernatural for the musical this year. When she gets the part of Castiel, a character she identifies with more strongly than any other, she's never been happieruntil she discovers that the actor playing Dean Winchester is none other than Siobhan, the girl shes had a crush on for two years.
We saw these two together in canon but only glimpses. This fic explores how they got together in the first place. Part of the spnfemminibang.

holyhael | PG-13 | Claire Novak/Hael, part of the spnfemminibang
She doesnt hear the womans footsteps, but the next thing Hael knows, the curtain is pulled back by a tall woman in patterned scrubs. Her eyes - burning, familiar - transfix Hael, and she knows.
Youre not a nurse, Hael says.
The woman sort of smirks. And youre not a human. Not really.
An interesting alternate take on what has become of Claire since S4 and how both she and Hael find the beginnings of healing together.

In a Fix
afattribble | NC-17| This fic is rated NC-17 for explicit sexual content and moderate violence that I consider on par with the show.
Dean Smith is a 'fixer' for hire. He has kept his real name a secret from the hunter community for years in order to protect a younger brother that doesn't even know he exists. Unfortunately, that lasts until he's blackmailed into taking a job with the Moore family, who give him a week in their estate to break up their daughter's engagement to some no-name law student.
It was impossible to stop reading this. A fabulous AU Sam and Dean reunion fic. Great writing and excellent characterizations.

Sex Tape
ash_carpenter | NC17| Sam/Dean
Summary. Sam and Dean make a sex tape! They're not as good at it as Dean seems to think.
The anti-kink series is a fandom classic, and this installment has the same delicious mix of hysterically funny and ridiculously hot that only Sam and Dean could pull off.

The Princess and the Memory Foam
blackrabbit42 | R| Sam/Dean
Summary. She has one job... to give Dean a good night's sleep. But when she learns that the sweet embrace of her memory foam isn't enough, the Mattress has a few other tricks up her sleeve.
The author manages to create a memorable character out of a mattress, who then provides a unique and heartwarming perspective on her owners, Sam and Dean.

Sun in My Mouth
cydsa | NC-17 | Warnings: Language, sibling incest, demons, angels, magic, sexual situations, Bottom!Dean
Summary: Three years after Sam loses his brother to Hell, he discovers that Dean has been sent topside. Sam has made some compromises to find Dean. Just how far he’s gone, just how much he’s done, well, Dean is probably going to be pissed. Once Sam gets Dean back, he isn’t planning on losing him again. No matter what he has to do. Never again.
A beautiful representation of the boys' relationship and an amazing and original alternative resolution to the Mark of Cain problem. A really great read.

Art for Mind, Body, Soul
sammycolt24 | R | warnings for chair!sex with some naughty bits showing
Line drawing illustration for a/b/o fic. Jared/Jensen
These line drawings are so sensual, it seems like you could reach out and slide your hand under the curve of Jared's back, or trace your fingers down his upturned throat.

Art for Life Is....
alexisjane | G |
Line drawing illustration and animated banner for Jensen/Jared/Misha.
The artist conveyed so much feeling into the objects she chose to illustrate, and the animation will knock your heart for a loop. Also.. Hand. Drawn. Text.

Art for Astantine
necrora | PG | boy kissing and nude (?) aliens.
Digital art, Sci-fi
The art itself is beautiful, but I love, love love the alien design sheets.

Art for The Song of the Ravens
amberdreams | PG | boy kissing
Digital pencil sketches for destiel story. Celtic themes.
This is the kind of artist every author hopes for. Not only is her work imaginative and stunning, but there's so much of it!

Art for Between Darkness and Light
chomaisky | G | Dark themes
Digital drawing for sam/dean horror story based on The Crow .
It's amazing how many shivers this artist produced with so few colors. You look at this art and you have no doubt what the story will be like in mood and tone.

Art for The Debts You'll Never Pay
dun | G | Anatomically correct depiction of human heart
Traditional drawing and digitally colored illustrations for castiel/claire story.
Even if this pairing is not your cup of tea, please check out the art. The drawings are imaginative and powerful, just an incredible amount of talent here. This is the second big bang entry by this artist, please take a moment to scroll through her journal and see the first as well. Both are just amazing!

Art for Deja Vu
riverofwind | G | Flashing image
Digital drawing and animated gif for sci-fi story loosely based on Total Recall.
I love the polished animation style of this artist. The gif is fantastic... if you look at it, you can see that the changes from one frame to the next are actually quite minimal, but the coloring and tone are in stark contrast. Also- Sam with a gatling gun and thigh holster? Who can resist?

Compiler's note- my apologies to all these lovely artists... your art is so amazing, and I lacked the words tonight to adequately describe your works in my summaries. To everyone else- please just click and see for yourselves. The talent in this fandom is staggering.

Playing House
dimeloria | NC17| Sam/Dean
Summary. To Sam, this is the kinkiest thing they have ever done. Hands down.
This is a beautiful, emotional story that plays out in real time, as Sam tries to fulfill Dean’s desire for something that would be kinky only to the Winchester’s.

New Toy
selecasharp | NC-17 | Straight-up porn, nipple play
Summary: Sam and Dean are still learning each other.
I'm more interested in plot than PWP, but I will read anything written by selecasharp, even "straight-up porn." If this doesn't bring a flush to your skin, I don't know what will. Whew!

[AO3 account] dreamlittleyo | Teen and Up | No warnings.
Summary: In which Sam and Dean share a quieter future.
I am always amazed by writers who can evoke so many feelings with so few words. This is a lovely vignette that represents a future I hope Dean and Sam can have.

What is and What Shall Always Be
stir_of_echoes | Not Rated (I'd say R)| No warnings.
Written for this prompt: Sam and Dean are watching tv late after a hunt one night on the motel couch. In the middle of the night one of them wakes up to realize that they've fallen asleep and curled up together. Also, boners.
A sexy story that for me epitomizes the sexual tension we imagine between the boys. Very well written, with a lovely ending.

Measure My Life in Coffee Cups
kcscribbler | PG-13| Vague spoilers for entire series, and specifically Season 10 (more specifically Soul Survivor).
Summary: Ten chronological snapshots, measured by ten significant cups of coffee in Sam Winchester's life.
Reccer's notes: A really beautifully crafted story illustrating key moments in their history that illuminate their deep brotherly bond. With the bonus of some really hilarious lines.

Adventures in Deansitting
zelda_addict | PG for a little language | Author's warnings: "Um... Up to present but vague? Seriously, Im not sure exactly where this would fall continuity-wise, but definitely at least Season 9 or 10 for references. I dont think I give away anything devastating, though."
Summary: After an accident involving a witch and some transformation potions, Dean is in need of constant supervision (but what else is new), Sam has to get a little more in touch with his feminine side, and both brothers are in over their heads.
Reccer's notes: Who can resist baby!Dean fic? This is clever, funny, and brings something fresh to the transformation trope.

Full painting of Jared as a Viking.
The palette really defines the mood of this painting so well, and the light and shadow are subtle enough not to be distracting, but really add depth. Also... Jared in a man-bun.

Take These Off

It's hot and humid, and Sam's this close to being naked. Dean needs him to take the final step.Digital drawing.
The more I look at this pic, the more details I see. Very nicely captures an expectant snapshot of the scene.

J2 2048
smalltroven | PG? For knee fondling? | Warning- you will become an addict.
Like the game 2048, only instead of combining number tiles, you combine J2 gifs.
I've never recc'd anything like this before. I've never SEEN anything like this before. I am completely addicted to puzzle games like 2048, and this just took my addiction and amplified it by j2-thousand times. Their dumb-ass faces in the second tile are cracking me up to no end.

Art for Soundproof Box
ar_richardson | Art= PG for slight gore, fic = NC17 | Slight gore (blood)

This is a new artist for me, and I love how the artist pulled together different techniques for the finished piece. Will definitely be following ar_richardson from now on.

Real Slow
deirdre_c | NC-17 | No warnings.
Summary: The stripteasing on stage at conventions is a joke, until Jensen gets drunk and sends a private video to Jared. Then its not so funny anymore.
Reccer's notes: This an interesting mix of RPF and AU, which will be acceptable, I think, to those readers who aren't fond of RPF. Though how anyone could resist this story is beyond me. The author manages to deliver humor, angst, schmoop, and really hot sex -- all under 11K words. An amazing story and one that I know I'll be reading again.

urtain!art: Castiel loves his practical, comfortable pajamas almost as much as he loves Sam. Small Sam/Cas ficlet also.
Beautiful use of light and shadow conveys a peaceful moment.

Tracking Aeroplanes
graphicinmotion (AKA Loki or secretlytodream) | PG for Show level violence | Spoilers through 10.23
Summary from author's notes: "So, at first I just wanted to make a general season finale video but somewhere along the way it turned into some kind of promo video for Jared's "Always keep fighting" campaign haha
Seriously though, together they're stronger than apart, no man is an island, so whatever you're going through that seems too hard or impossible to bear, just share it with somebody and ask for help."
Watching this made me realize why season 10 felt so much like earlier seasons that we all know and love; a return to what is at the core of the show.

Shut up Dean, It's Good for You
cassiopeia7 | G |
Long-suffering Sam presenting rabbit-friendly takeout to a skeptical bunny!Dean.
I have to admit, I'm partial to all versions of bunny!Dean, but to me, it's Sam's face that really makes this piece. His body looks so relaxed... it tickles me that Dean had to be be a bunny for Sam to be able to experience that.

Sleepy Sammy
sammycolt24 | PG | Partial sleeping nudity.
Dean thinks Sam is just so cute when he's sleeping, but Sam is too out of it to believe him..
The texture in this drawing gives it a very palpable feel. You could almost reach in and run your fingers through Sam's hair, or feel the fever burning off his skin.

Ain't no Saint

Black and white digital painting, Dean with prop from 10.23.
Perfectly captures the spirit of Dean in 10.23.

Flawless photomanip of J2 having fun at the Tough Mudder.
The joy that the real pics have brought fandom over the past week? Totally captured in this piece, just with a little extra J2-ness thrown in there for extra joy.

Happy Together
ash48 | G|
Summary (from the vidder, because she said it so well!) Every now and then a song comes along that just screams J2. When I saw this song mentioned in reference to the Js I just knew I had to make a vid to it. But I wanted to do something a little different than just a J2 vid so thought about combining Sam and Dean with Jared and Jensen. I wanted to show how their off screen chemistry and camaraderie feeds into the on screen chemistry between Sam and Dean. So the idea of "happy together" is the matching of Jared and Jensen to Sam and Dean. And it's not only great seeing the Js happy in each others company, but also seeing those glimpse of when the brothers are happy being together. Even though their relationship is fraught with drama (and all the angst!), I believe that there is a sense of happiness and peace when they are truly working well and just being together.
What the vidder has done here with the combination of convention clips and Supernatural clips is so fun. The parallels she noticed and included will make you smile and shake your head at the boys at the same time.

Maybe I Can Be Saved
tripperfunster | G |
Stained glass window depicting a scene in which Sam gets the quest he always hoped for.
I love pieces that use different media, so this stained glass window was a beautiful surprise. You can see by looking at it, and by scrolling through the artist's journal that this was a labor of love that spanned several months. It really pays off, as it's exquisitely executed. The earnest look on Sam's face just slays me.

Keeping Company

Jared is a photographer of the rich, wanna-be-famous, and privileged of New York. Jensen seems to date a lot of them. A not-what-you-were-expecting kinda escort fic.

After her death, Sarah Blake finds herself drifting. She's not alone in that.
Reccer's notes: A hauntingly sad and beautifully written look at what might have been.

Frater Lupinus
[AO3 account] cleflink | Teen and Up | No Archive Warnings Apply.
Sam's older brother is, and always has been, a wolf. It doesn't make much sense to Sam, but it's still an undeniable fact of life. Or, at least it is until Dean gets caught in the wrong spell and Sam ends up with a human-shaped brother who's surprisingly unhappy with the situation.
Sam's always known that Dean would take a secret to the grave if he thought it was in Sam's best interests. He wasn't expecting a secret like this.
Reccer's notes: Great brother-focused story, with classic Winchester family dynamics and an ending that is satisfying but also leaves you wanting more.

"Not I," said the Cat
[AO3 account] bellatemple | G | No Warnings
It blew in on a cool breeze and a flutter of dead leaves. They never stood a chance.

dimeliora | Unrated | Warnings or other notes.
Dean wakes up to wage a war he's not equipped to fight.Set, technically, about five minutes before the end of the season nine finale. No spoilers for season ten.
Dean’s journey is amazing and cathartic, at least for us!

you are my little kite
[AO3 account] tekuates | General Audiences | No Archive Warnings Apply/Pre-Canon/Pining.
He stares at himself in the mirror. Dean used to be able to see himself, but now he just sees pieces; his crooked nose, his eyes, his mouth, twisted up. He can’t make the parts resolve into the whole. Not anymore.
Lovely subtle touches make this story, set just pre-series, throb with Dean’s own loss.

The New York Story
[AO3 account] frozen_delight | Mature | Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
To Sam it was always The New York Story.
Angsty goodness with great backstory (both about John and about the history of Sam/Dean) and a continuation of Dean’s pigheaded insistence on self-sacrifice.

Out of the Woods[AO3 account] selecasharp | Mature | No Archive Warnings Apply
Summary: After Flint, the boys decide to go on one of their regular hunts in rural Ohio. But there's something else out there in the woods, stalking Dean, and for Sam, saving him means facing down the complicated mess of emotions sitting between them.
Very enjoyable monsters (well, for the reader anyway) and lovely longing and mutual confessions.
