I'm partial to short, action-filled vids with catchy songs. This one meets all of those criteria in spades:

Ki-ki-kiss me! by ILoveThesePeople - (Dean/Castiel)

Art

4 Times Sam Walked in on Dean and Cas Having Sex and 1 Time He Didn't by [livejournal.com profile] daggomus_prime  - (Dean/Castiel) This is a short comic strip that is both brilliantly drawn and hilarious. It's also quite NSFW. 

Worship by [livejournal.com profile] lolryne  - (Dean/Castiel) Just all-around gorgeous - and quite sweet.

Fic

Bone by [livejournal.com profile] apokteino  - (Dean/Castiel) Not for the squeamish or those wishing for a sweet, fluffy read, this is DARK stuff. Torture and psychological devastation. Such a skillfully written, incredibly powerful piece, though. Incisive and uncompromising - a definite must-read. 

Summary: When Dean (raised from hell by some unknown force) and Sam stop the last seal from breaking, heaven decides to bring its own apocalypse. Late in the war, an angel with dark hair and striking blue eyes is captured, and Dean – Dean is his interrogator.

The Future as B-Movie / Bring Out Your Dead by [livejournal.com profile] twoskeletons  and [livejournal.com profile] unoshot  - (Gen) Another dark piece that is bold and bleak and possessed of a sort of frantic desperation that is incredibly compelling; another powerful read.

Summary: In the middle of the zombie apocalypse, the vampires multiply and zero in on Cas. / This future isn't much better than that other one. / Surviving the Monsterpocalypse 101 / Worst road trip ever.

Supernatural

Oh, the angst. The sweet, sweet angst. With bonus h/c and an epic post-apocalyptic storyline? What could be better? A PODFIC of such a story - that could be better! With great delight, I am pleased to rec ....

Thursday's Child by [livejournal.com profile] strangeandcharm , read by [livejournal.com profile] alchemynerd - 12+ hours of hurty goodness! Yes, you read that right - 12+ hours! The story is Dean/Castiel, an AU in which Dean managed to kill Lucifer when he was in Sam's body. I've actually read the story twice before - so enjoyable!  [livejournal.com profile] alchemynerd 's voice is very pleasant. The recording is clear, as is the reader's diction, and her pacing is careful without being plodding. 

The Eagle

I actually hadn't heard of The Eagle before my dear [livejournal.com profile] ariadnes_string  posted a lovely little piece of slashy h/c - The Place You Are - some time ago (highly recommended!), but as soon as I saw that it was - 1. historical, 2. Roman, and 3. filled with fine looking men, I was ALL OVER IT. [livejournal.com profile] jaxie12  has done several excellent podfics in this fandom (here). And also, one of my favorite readers produced this enjoyable piece:

Suffer, Spasm, Strain by [livejournal.com profile] onelittlesleep , read by dodificus. dodificus has a lovely accent and unhurried pacing. She doesn't do near enough podfics, I'm afraid! This particular story is so compelling and unusual - and it clocks in at only around 15 minutes.

A couple of weeks ago my lovely flisty [livejournal.com profile] juice817 posted about the publication of her novel Winner Takes All, a well written, steamy, completely delicious m/m fic.  Since reading that I've been looking for original m/m to enjoy and let me tell you, it's not easy to find.  I finally decided just to delve into the countless pages worth of J2 AU fic that's out there, since in my mind it's pretty much original fic with Jared and Jensen playing the roles of original characters ... sort of like they are playing movie roles.  Anyhow, I just read the following and it's just incredible.

Ashes of the Moon by [livejournal.com profile] corbyinoz   Rating: NC17; Word count: 42,000.  One of last year's Big Bangs, this story is vivid and heartbreaking and all around gripping.  Well written and just the right length, you will truly feel like you've been on a journey after you've read it.  The contradictions that is Africa - beautiful and tragic - shine through.  This is a dark story with the silver lining of love and sacrifice to make it an all around satisfying read.
Author's summary: Jared Padalecki, an inexperienced and uncertain young man, is sent to Kibilisa, Africa, to work for his church. Less than a month later the country is torn apart by civil war. Alone in charge of a group of children, he despairs of surviving – until he meets a mysterious man named Jensen Ackles who seems to know the country and the language. Their journey together will bring them terror, pain, horror and the deepest grief; but also friendship, self-sacrifice, love and redemption.
twasadark: (SPN - Castiel looking up)
So it's been a while since I did a fic rec post.  This one includes lots of Dean/Castiel goodies, since that's mainly what I'm reading lately.  It's also what I'm writing (Castiel with a big hairy beard, of all things!).  Anyhow, hope you likee!

Dark Night of the Soul
by maboheme; Rating: R; ~900 words; Summary: In the dark, it's the two of them learning what it is to feel like men.  A lovely, poignant piece.

Last Angel on Earth by starkraves; Unrated; Warning: Non-Con; The End AU. Very dark Dean, skillfully told with a killer last line.

A Rain of Feathers by Lacey McBain; Rating: NC-17; Words: ~7800; Summary: Sex pollen Angel!Porn with a plot. No, seriously.  Awesome sex pollen - funny and sweet and a bit hot as well.

What Would an Angel Say?  (The Devil Wants to Know) by Nataliadarimini; Rating: NC-17; Summary:  "That look on your face just now," Castiel whispers,  "It was like the ecstasy of the martyrs.  It was breath-taking." Beautiful piece. Castiel tries to comprehend Dean ... and does it through sex.

the hunter's prayer by ethia; Rating: R; Words: 2.429; Summary: Maybe prayer is just a matter of perspective.  Lyrical, well written piece on prayer.

leave me alone... vidded by anaapenas; Rating: PG; Very funny crack vid!

Sweet Flame by edenbound; Rating: R; Summary: Dean wants so much to be able to see him. For the Porn Battle! Short but positively incendiary!!

Feast of All Saints by oselle; Rating: NC-17; Words: 30,000; Summary: It's 2015 and the world's gone to hell in the Croatoan apocalypse. Separated from their group of virus survivors, Dean and his erstwhile guardian angel find themselves stranded in Appalachia. A sequel to The Shame Of It All and Once, could be considered the third part of a trilogy with those stories (but this one can probably stand alone). Those other two stories were in the PG range, so please take note of the rating and pairings for this one.  Dark, gritty and rich description and characterization make the journey of Dean to Cas believable.

Not On My Watch
by baka-writes. Rating: NC-17 for swears and porn like whoa; Summary: Missing scene from 5x03. Dean and Castiel get wasted after the brothel doesn't work out the way Dean had planned. Smoking hot porn. First time.

The Misery of This Age by altyronsmaker; Rating: NC-17; Words: 3,355; Summary: Castiel forces a comfort on Dean. Hot and intense, angry sex turned tender. Beautifully written.
twasadark: (SPN - Castiel - Up Close)
I'm rather bored and on home rest due to doctor's orders, so I figured I would do something of worth to someone, lol.  Hope you enjoy these.  Feel free to rec me similar fics as well - especially the h/c and Dean/Castiel ... I know there are many more great Dean/Castiel's than I've been finding ...

From the
Sick!Dean h/c comment meme

Qui Non Somnus (Those Who Do Not Sleep)
by [livejournal.com profile] authoressnebula
Prompt: Gen or Sam/Dean. Dean is hit with a curse that keeps him from sleeping and he starts to suffer the symptoms of severe sleep-deprivation, ie: heightened emotions, hallucinations, confusion. But especially heightened emotions! If you make him cry, I'll marry you.

Sam is steadfast and comforting as Dean declines into near insanity.  Made me go "awwwwww!"

Barrel of Laughs
by [livejournal.com profile] zatnikatel
Prompt: Sam, Dean, gen. Since waking up in his coffin and having to claw out of his own grave Dean has suffered from claustrophobia. He gets trapped in an enclosed space during a hunt and has a panic attack. Luckily Sam is there to soothe and comfort.

Crackling narrative and a feeling of increasing terror until, of course, our boy Dean is saved at last.

The Dangers of Trigonometry
by [livejournal.com profile] sinnerforhire
Prompt: Teen!Dean and chronic migraines.

Descriptively written and totally satisfying.


Het

Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters, And The Story Of A Lonely Girl by [livejournal.com profile] justxusxtwo
Pairing: Dean/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Summary: PWP, mostly, with only a dash of plot. Or, a porny oneshot, maybe? Something like that.

The OFC felt real to me and the sex was hot!

Dean/Castiel

Chrome by [livejournal.com profile] seraphwings
Pairing: Dean/Castiel... Impala?
Rating: PG-13
Prompt(s): Dean/Impala, Dean/Castiel. Dean and the Impala wind up getting possessed and/or cursed, turn all homicidal and super creepy, and Sam and Castiel have to save them (yes, them - the car, too!). Take a look at Christine for some inspiration. Castiel should make sure to take special attention to the car because he knows how much Dean cares for her. </b> (I tried XD)
Summary This isn't any sort of possession he can recognize. There is no demonic force he can sense, no ghost slipped into Dean's skin. The only sense of a soul at all is just Dean's, quiet and muffled beneath an odd, cold gloss.

A wonderfully unique and beautifully written piece.

Our Bleeding Hearts by [livejournal.com profile] thevinegarworks
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: R...? For sexuality and taking creative liberties with scripture.
Summary: In the midst of a war between Heaven and Hell, it's the quiet moments that mean the most.

A lovely, lyrical, and evocative piece.





twasadark: (SPN - Impala b/w/gray)
These two stories deserve a post all their own under the heading OMG THESE FICS ARE THE BEST THINGS EVER!

Clangs by [profile] vee_fic (Gen, R) Summary:  It was just a stupid accident. It doesn't have to be any more complicated than that. Smoking!Dean, homeless and mental. Sam the psychology grad student. They both try to help one another and it's just so painfully, wonderfully well done. I read this one a long time ago and forgot to bookmark it, but it stayed with me and really stands out amongst the millions (okay, slight exaggeration) of stories I've read in the meantime.  It's not an easy, happy read.  But it's an awesome one.

Lazarus Came Forth
by [livejournal.com profile] oselle (Gen, R) Summary: Dean returns from hell and finds himself alive and alone in the stark landscape of an America that has gone terribly wrong. Adrift in hostile territory and pursued by hell's bounty hunters, he sets out on a desperate hunt to find Sam. Apocafic and AU for everything after Season 3. Huge kudos to [livejournal.com profile] catsbycat who recc'd this to me as a possible podfic.  I'm recording it now, all 70K words of it.  It's that good.  If you like Hurt!Dean, taut writing, excellent characterization, and atmosphere up the wazoo (I'm so poetic) then don't miss this one.  I'm rather surprised it hasn't been recced from here to eternity.  It totally deserves to be.
twasadark: (DA - Alec - oh)
More recs, anyone?  Dark Angel, this time. I'll add them to my Max/Alec master post and my Everything-But-Max/Alec master post too when I get around to it.

Vid

I don't want to be just an other echo by aruna7 - Poignant Alec-centric vid.

Fic 

Max/Alec - explicit

Stirred by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool (Max/Alec; adult) Summary: In which Alec puts his money where his mouth is. So to speak. Yum. Max and Alec get dirty and then they get clean while getting dirty again.

Max/Alec - non-explicit


lie down beneath this bowl of stars by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool (Max/Alec, PG) Summary: Alec's timing sucks. Sweet story of a beginning between Max and Alec.

Always Alright by [livejournal.com profile] hunters_retreat (Max/Alec, unrated) Summary: Alec thinks about his life because it's better than thinking about the position he's currently in. Although this fic could use some beta love, it's overall well-written, and a nice take on heat fic. 

Constellations, Confrontations, and a Confession and its sequel, Proven,  by Aranel du Lac (Max/Alec, Teen) Lovely interplay between Max and Alec.

Slash

...Because You're Unforgiven Too
by [livejournal.com profile] abendstern1601 (Ben/Alec, NC-17), set after the wonderful gen fic Under Wicked Sky  Tender and loving and HOT. YUMMY.

A Pretty Good Fit
by [livejournal.com profile] hunters_retreat (Alec/Logan, R) Summary:  Alec and Logan make a bet and in the end, all the pieces come together. Surprisingly sweet and tender.

Until Next Time... by [livejournal.com profile] domina_malfoy  (Alec/Ames, PG-13) Summary: “I made the choice to help you. It would only be fair for you to help me in return.”  Oooh. Clever little bit!

Mistletoe Kiss by [livejournal.com profile] ladyyueh (Alec/Logan, PG-13) Prompt: #17: Logan kisses Alec under the mistletoe as a joke and find himself affected more deeply than he'd intended. Sweet kissing fic.

Incinerate by [livejournal.com profile] amory_vain  (Alec/Ames, unrated) Non-con, masturbation. Sort of a follow-up to Created in Image. Short, dark, delicious little bit of evil Ames and helplessly turned on Alec.

Gen

Work in Progress by [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde (Gen, PG) Summary: A life threatening incident allows Joshua to see Alec's true colors. Written to my prompt: "A little Hurt!Alec drabble that includes Joshua." This is obviously longer than a drabble… Sweet hurt/comfort fic.

Got Your Back by J.B. Burge (Gen, Teen) Alec and Cindy friendship. Sweet and well written.

Dirty Job by [livejournal.com profile] diurnal_lee  (Gen, Teen) Summary: Logan catches Alec doing something unexpected. Short, sweet, and clever. Awww, Alec!!

Other

Rage Against the Dying of the Light by[livejournal.com profile] lyl_devil  (Alec/OC [implied], PG-15) Prompt: Dark Angel – Alec, heat . Summary: Alec’s having a really bad week, and he’s cursing Manticore‘s geneticists down to his very last base pair. Alec is molested and he doesn't like it. Interesting concept that's well-executed.

Reccers note
My reccing criteria is basically this: if I liked it, I rec it. I'm a bit more lenient with my Dark Angel recs than I am with my Supernatural ones, for the simple reason that Supernatural has such a glut of talented writers.  Dark Angel, unfortunately, seems to have the opposite problem!  That's why I'm making these reccing posts, to gather all my faves in one place and hopefully help others to enjoy them as well. 

If you see your favorite story/stories missing, it could be because it doesn't contain Alec (I'm very monogamous), I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, or I don't know about it.  So please feel free to rec them to me.  I'll give them a shot, although it may take me forever and a day.  I bookmark my TBR (to be read) fics for when I'm in the mood.  If your favorite fic never does appear it could mean that it just didn't strike my fancy (which is very subjective, I admit) or I didn't think it was well written (this, too, is subjective, I suppose). 

PS - please rec me Dark Angel vids and fanmixes, too!

I know everyone is still sad about the news of Kim Manners' untimely death, but perhaps some good fic reading will distract you from the suck that is real life sometimes.  Rest in peace, Kim. 

Supernatural Slash & Het

Beasts and Outlaws by [livejournal.com profile] calamitycrow  (NC-17, Dean/OMC, Sam/Sarah) Approx 80,000 of an epic AU that will make you say: Holy shit!  Characters so well-rounded that they continue to live in your mind and amazing descriptions. Read this one for the setting as much as the plot; it's set in the Southwest, and as someone who's spent a good part of her life in both the rural and urban Southwest, it's definitely got the culture, myths, mood, and landscape down pat. An amazing read that needs to be recced from here to eternity.  Summary: Back in 2001, two brothers made their choices. Now Dean's in a relationship and Sam's a respected hunter who has his father's love and approval. Of course, nothing's that easy when you are a Winchester....

Falling Through by Corona (NC-17, Sam/Dean) Great shifting, surrealistic style that's compellingly, skillfully executed. I love how stark Dean is with need. And the ending is great. Summary: Like his world is wrong in some way, for not having a Sam.

I love the bones of you by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter (PG-13, Dean/Castiel plus some hints of Sam/Ruby) I love how this starts out as dark and explicit, but turns into something different.  Summary: Dean has been missing for three days.

Cold as Ice by [livejournal.com profile] extraonions (NC-17, Dean/Ellen) The details and character interactions make the story. And the sex? HOT. Summary: They say a measure of truth can be found at the bottom of every bottle.  Ellen Harvelle isn't sure about that, but she is sure about one thing.  Sam Winchester is very much like his daddy; growing more like John every day.  But Dean?  Dean reminds her of Bill.

Crossovers - Slash & Gen

Supernatural/Sons of Anarchy

Body Work by [livejournal.com profile] chemm80 (NC-17, Dean/Jax).  Hot crossover action with a nice build and great payoff.  Summary: “Jax is tattooed with a replica of his patch, so big it covers his whole back. A skeletal grim reaper holding a sickle and some sort of crystal ball takes up the center, with “Sons of Anarchy, California” in semicircles at top and bottom. Dean’s never seen anything like it.”

Supernatural/Angel

Shades of a human soul
by [livejournal.com profile] katsa_db_lover  (NC-17, Dean/Lindsey) Good God but this is HOT. Excellently written! Summary: Dean and Lindsey find something unexpected in each other.

Supernatural/Dark Angel

Folgers Crystals by [livejournal.com profile] zannes (PG, Gen) A cute, clever story. Summary: Two transgenics and two Winchesters meet up in a bar...


Fanmix

Heaven's Not Enough (aka "Salvation and Corruption") by [livejournal.com profile] kitsu84 (Dean/Castiel). LOVE this mix, which includes some instrumentals and some vocals and is all over kick ass. The graphics are beautiful, too.

A Damned Good Reason by [livejournal.com profile] shopfront  (Max/Alec, PG) - Summary: People keep reading things into Max taking regular coffee breaks with Alec.

Gen

by Rachel Wilder (Gen, unrated) - A sweet Christmas fic.

Bill of Service by Sonya (Gen, unrated) - Loved the dynamics between Max and Alec in this gen story.

A Long Time Running by northlight (Gen, unrated) - Nice, well written little piece about family. Focuses on Max and Alec. Of course!

Passing Time by sullensiren  (Gen, unrated) - Alec reflects on life in this well written story. Very entertaining.

Slash


And The Street Below (showered in broken glass) by [livejournal.com profile] shopfront  (Alec/Logan, PG-13) Summary: When people get locked in, they go a little stir crazy. A complicated, well written piece.

Untitled Drabble by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter  (Alec/Logan, unrated) DAMN. Angry and needy and YUM. Coda to Fuhgeddaboutit.

Blame it on the Scotch, or How Logan Cale Learned to Stop Worrying and Just Go For It by Lucy Gillam (Alec/Logan, unrated) Tightly plotted and well written piece. Love that Alec could rub off on Logan a little. Pun intended.

Max/Alec


The Cure by [livejournal.com profile] lusmeitli (Max/Alec, PG-13) Summary: This is another take on 'the cure' situation, but with an additional twist. Funny and sweet - drunk!Alec FTW!

Nightly by [livejournal.com profile] lusmeitli (Max/Alec, PG-13) Summary: We learn a little about what Max is doing (and thinking whilst doing it) when she thinks no one's looking. Sweet, loving, and tender.

Untitled by [livejournal.com profile] _plastiqueink (Max/Alec, unrated) Very short, very good. So bittersweet.

Mixed Signals by [livejournal.com profile] dazedizzy (Max/Alec, PG-13) Summary: Alec finds out some very interesting things from Logan about Max. Yum!

Gen

Flower Child by amandak (Gen, unrated) - Cute story about out-of-control Alec. Features Joshua and Max.

One Sherrif at the Time
by amandak (Gen, unrated) - Solid action fic featuring Alec.

Wake Up Call by [livejournal.com profile] elishavah (Gen, unrated) Alec, Max, OC - about friendship and trust. Very enjoyable.

Glitch by [livejournal.com profile] minkmix (Gen, PG) Summary: Despite the lengths which he painstakingly took to explain the details, a girl would think the gist of his master plan would be crystal by the time he was through. That never seemed to be the case. Sweet story with a vulnerable Alec and a helpful Cindy.

Check by [livejournal.com profile] minkmix (Gen, PG) Summary: An evening in at the Cale residence. Cute and rather quirky, I like how it demonstrates the differences between X-5's and Ordinaries so perfectly.

Slash

Young by [livejournal.com profile] downfall35 (Alec/Logan, PG) Drabble fic that is sweet and romantic. Kissing fic.

Created in Image by [livejournal.com profile] amory_vain  (Ames White/Alec, sort of. Implied past Alec/Others; unrated but includes references to torture, sexual tension).  Intriguing!

Dark Angel Prompt table fics by [livejournal.com profile] amory_vain  (Alec/Logan, unrated) All short and related to one another, well written and deliciously angsty. There are 10 up so far. Maybe if we leave lots of comments she'll write more of these soon?

Supernatural/Dark Angel Crossover

Mortal Wounds by [livejournal.com profile] splashpink (Sam/Alec, R) Summary: Sometimes loving Alec hurts worse than losing Dean. A quick peek at a larger picture. This story could use a beta, but is still vivid and compelling.

Dirty Job by [livejournal.com profile] diurnal_lee  (Gen, Teen) Summary: Logan catches Alec doing something unexpected. Short, sweet, and clever. Awww, Alec!!

Under Wicked Sky by [livejournal.com profile] abendstern1601 (Gen, Somewhere between PG13 and NC17 I think, not that there is anything really explicit) Summary: Ben's been praying for the same thing for the last ten years. This night, the Lady will answer his prayers. Great gen Ben and Alec fic with loads of Hurt!Alec. Four parts of YUM.

Big Love by CarrieICL (Gen, unrated) Awww! Sweet story about Joshua's love for his friends. Has a hint or two of M/A in here as well.

Manticore Moments by xrho (Gen, PG-13) Alec has seizures; Max and OC help.

Sifting by Northlight (Gen, PG-13) Very short - features Mia and Alec. A chilling, well written piece. Coda to Fuhgeddaboutit.

Blind Side
by Northlight (Gen, PG-13) Short, but well written and compelling story. Gen. 

Down There I Made My Name
by [livejournal.com profile] delphinapterus (Mature; Warnings: implied prostitution, dub-con, drug use, murder; implied past Alec/OMC) Short, compelling Alec character study.

Flying by CarrieICL (Gen?, unrated) Intense and touching. Max is traumatized and Alec tries to make everything better.

Sound is Deep In the Dark
by [livejournal.com profile] bloodnfire - Gen; Mature - Written for the jam_pony_fic mini ficathon for the prompt: A mission gone wrong leaves Alec wounded and Max has to face the possibility of losing him.  Wonderful piece - harsh and vivid.

Flower Child by amandak (Gen, unrated) - Cute story about out-of-control Alec. Features Joshua and Max.

...Because You're Unforgiven Too by [livejournal.com profile] abendstern1601 (Ben/Alec, NC-17), set after the wonderful gen fic Under Wicked Sky  Tender and loving and HOT. YUMMY.

A Pretty Good Fit

Mistletoe Kiss by [livejournal.com profile] ladyyueh (Alec/Logan, PG-13) Prompt: #17: Logan kisses Alec under the mistletoe as a joke and find himself affected more deeply than he'd intended. Sweet kissing fic.

Incinerate by [livejournal.com profile] amory_vain  (Alec/Ames, unrated) Non-con, masturbation. Sort of a follow-up to Created in Image. Short, dark, delicious little bit of evil Ames and helplessly turned on Alec.

Chimera by [livejournal.com profile] jaguarcaine . Ames/Alec; (not rated, but definitely NC-17 material) The pairing totally threw me - I DESPISE Ames. He's no boy scout in this story, but it works. This piece is completely amazing--it's well-written, humorous, angsty, passionate, full of desperate sex, babies, and love. 16 parts. Includes gratuitous Hurt!Alec. Bitchy!Max has a minor role.

All the King's Horses and All the King's Men by [livejournal.com profile] alyse (Alec/Logan; R) Alec/Logan isn't something that I thought I'd enjoy, but once again my prejudices have been overridden by excellent writing. [livejournal.com profile] alyse takes her time with description, detail and nuance, making the climax (pun intended) perfectly satisfying. The h/c is tender and touching without being overwrought. Hurt!Alec. Summary: Logan had grown used to the quiet in the evenings, but that was before he took a sharp left into Surrealsville, population two. Nice long read (17,000 words)

And in the Winter's Bitter Chill by [livejournal.com profile] alyse (Alec/Logan, mostly gen; PG-13) Summary: Winter's come early this year. Logan tries not to read too much into that. Sort of an Alec character study, including the piano, from Logan's surprisingly non-annoying/wimpy POV.

The One With The Alleyfucking by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay (Logan/Alec, R) Summary: Set immediately after the pool game in 'Borrowed Time'. Max left in a cloud of angst; Logan and Alec, presumably, did not. Enter PWP! GUH! Totally hot, and a little bittersweet. More than just a PWP.

A Perfect Mirror by [livejournal.com profile] backinblack (Ben/Alec, NC-17) Clever, funny, and hot. Love the pairing, and the Alec-voice. Short, but very enjoyable.

Standing The Heat by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay (NC-17; Alec/Logan). Summary: He notices when Max disappears for a couple of days and comes back looking hollow-eyed and haunted, of course he does, but he never figured it'd happen to him. Incredibly hot and just beautifully, perfectly written. Alec is desperate and Logan can't resist.

Happy Hour by [livejournal.com profile] minkmix (NC-17 - Edge of Consent; OMC/Alec) Summary: Alec is overheated in an upscale bathroom with some guy down his pants. There's a new drug on the market that can put an X5 into heat... Hot and intense. Alec gets slipped a sex mickie.

Young by  [livejournal.com profile] downfall35 (Alec/Logan, PG) Drabble fic that is sweet and romantic. Kissing fic.

Created in Image by [livejournal.com profile] amory_vain   (Ames White/Alec, sort of. Implied past Alec/Others; unrated but includes references to torture, sexual tension).  Intriguing!

Rage Against the Dying of the Light by[livejournal.com profile] lyl_devil  (Alec/OC [implied], PG-15) Prompt: Dark Angel – Alec, heat . Summary: Alec’s having a really bad week, and he’s cursing Manticore‘s geneticists down to his very last base pair. Alec is molested and he doesn't like it. Interesting concept that's well-executed.

Summer by Death's Daughter (PG) Cute! Short fic in which Normal lusts over Alec.

I Never Thought This Would Happen to Me
by [livejournal.com profile] mrsevilpigeon - Het (Max/Normal); R - Written for the jam_pony_fic mini ficathon.  The prompt was Normal gets too close to Max in heat.  Short and funny! Love Normal!

And Then There Was One by [livejournal.com profile] mickeym (NC-17, Logan/Alec/Max) Short, hot, bittersweet. Threesome that's about more than just sex. Although the sex is pretty damn impressive. :-)

Triangulation by [livejournal.com profile] ciaan  (NC-17, Max/Alec/Logan).  SCORCHING HOT, GUHLICIOUS threesome. Summary: Max and Logan can't touch each other, so Alec steps in. 4,400 words.

And lastly, what kind of self-promoter would I be if I didn't pimp my own fics? As of this posting I only have 7 DA fics (gen, het and slash - I'm equal opportunity!) but more are a comin'. You can read them all here.


Dark Angel/Supernatural Crossover


Gen

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Rachel Wilder (Gen, unrated) - A sweet Christmas fic.

Bill of Service by Sonya (Gen, unrated) - Loved the dynamics between Max and Alec in this gen story.

A Long Time Running by northlight (Gen, unrated) - Nice, well written little piece about family. Focuses on Max and Alec. Of course!

Passing Time by sullensiren  (Gen, unrated) - Alec reflects on life in this well written story. Very entertaining.

Fox 'Verse by [livejournal.com profile] lori_leaf Author's Note: The time lines have been adjusted slightly. It is 2007, but Dean is 19, Sam is 15 and John's still around. The Manticore escapees ran away two years ago when they were eight. X5-494 (Alec) is now 10 years old. Sweet, endearing 'verse focusing on the interaction between all four Winchesters. Good for a smile.

Full of Grace by [livejournal.com profile] almostinstinct (R) Summary: Plotbunny I got after seeing Pollo Loco. Dark Angel crossover. Future-fic for SPN, implied character death. Short but vivid and compelling. Ben carves a bar code on Dean's neck ...

Tom Sawyer Verse (PG-13) by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjanelly Ben and Sam have a father/son relationship. Quiet and intense story.

Shadow by [livejournal.com profile] nilchance (Rating: All ages) A/N: Mostly a brain-spill. Alec, Sam and Dean. Alec isn't the only one who watches.
The differences between Alec and Dean; killer last line.

Begotten by [livejournal.com profile] nilchance (PG-13 for language) Summary: Alec gets lost, and then found. Sequel: Gingerbread (Adult) Summary: Alec gets in over his head. Complications is third in the series - Alec is wounded by a harpy and Sam and Dean care for him.

What Comes Around Verse
by [livejournal.com profile] spastic_visions (Gen; PG-13) A series of five stories. Loved how bittersweet it felt, how Sam misses Dean so damn much. how Alec had his own issues, and they made him into a different character from what we saw on DA, a logical evolution. Loved how seamlessly the DA and SPN worlds blended together. And I loved that this was gen. I've read my share of Sam/Alec slash and although I like that, too, this was refreshingly different.

With a Bang 'Verse
by [livejournal.com profile] minkmix (Gen; PG-R) Starts with the 15 chapter story "With a Bang," and continues with "Aftershocks" (16 chapters), Minor Tremor (8 chapters), Not a Whimper (10 chapters), Ripple Effect (12 chapters), and Incandesence (? chapters). I was a bit intimated by the sheer length of this verse, which kept me from reading it for a while. It shouldn't have, because the chapters are short, and the story is delightfully addictive. Sam is Alec's dad, and Dean is the ornery uncle. I love the entire tone of this series. Alec is cheerfully oblivious, and he fits in perfectly as the youngest Winchester. Sam is more serious and remote than we see him in canon, and Dean is wonderfully gruff. The series has a sort of happy-go-lucky feel to it, combined with generous portions of my true love, hurt/comfort. A definite must-read.

Mortal Wounds by [livejournal.com profile] splashpink (Sam/Alec, R) Summary: Sometimes loving Alec hurts worse than losing Dean. A quick peek at a larger picture. This story could use a beta, but is still vivid and compelling.


Slash

And The Street Below (showered in broken glass) by [livejournal.com profile] shopfront  (Alec/Logan, PG-13) Summary: When people get locked in, they go a little stir crazy. A complicated, well written piece.

Untitled Drabble by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter  (Alec/Logan, unrated) DAMN. Angry and needy and YUM. Coda to Fuhgeddaboutit.

Blame it on the Scotch, or How Logan Cale Learned to Stop Worrying and Just Go For It by Lucy Gillam (Alec/Logan, unrated) Tightly plotted and well written piece. Love that Alec could rub off on Logan a little. Pun intended.

Nine Lives, Cat's Eyes by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay (Sam/Alec, R) Summary: Futurefic. It's 2020; Sam's passing through Seattle when he meets someone he didn't expect. Clever and hot.

Well, it's been ten years and maybe more
by [livejournal.com profile] almostinstinct . I love the beautiful language and vivid details in this character study.

(If I had a mom she'd say) Never Go Home With Strangers by [livejournal.com profile] dollydolittle (NC-17, Sam/Alec) Smooth writing, a great Alec voice, and all around cleverness make this a great read.


Vids

I don't want to be just an other echo by aruna7 - Poignant Alec-centric vid.

I Like the Way You Move by [livejournal.com profile] thandie - Kick ass in the BEST possible way. I've watched this vid time and time again and it never gets old! ETA - it looks like this vid is still available in .avi, but not on youtube.

One Jump Ahead by [info]backinblack made this funny, awesome Alec vid.

20th Century Boy by [livejournal.com profile] crazywritinfool Summary: Transgenic Action Alec--he's your toy, your 20th century boy. Well, 21st century, but who's counting? All Alec, practically every frame. Beware! Your ovaries may explode from his gorgeousness.

Girlfriend by [livejournal.com profile] bunniqula Summary: Alec thinks Logan needs a new girlfriend... as long as that 'girlfriend' is him. (Logan/Alec and Logan/Max) Gratuitous use of balls, sticks, Jensen Ackles' mouth and other phallic and sexual innuendo. A clever, upbeat slashy vid that made me smile.

Podfic

Sound is Deep In the Dark by [livejournal.com profile] bloodnfire ; read by [livejournal.com profile] twasadark

today's tom sawyer (part one, part two) by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjanelly ; read by [livejournal.com profile] tsuki_no_bara

twasadark: (OMG)
Here are a couple of recs for creations that made me go:

WOW!!!!



Supernatural

[livejournal.com profile] counteragent made this amazing vid about the show and fandom and women and it must have taken her a gojillion hours. Go and watch and flail - here.

Dark Angel

[livejournal.com profile] ciaan wrote a SCORCHING HOT, GUHLICIOUS threesome fic with Max/Alec/Logan called Triangulation. Quite NC-17. Summary: Max and Logan can't touch each other, so Alec steps in. 4,400 words.
twasadark: (Dean - Crushed but Beautiful)
I really need to be working on my Dark Angel fic, but instead I'm reccing stuff. Somebody threaten me into writing, okay?

Jumping at Shadows by [livejournal.com profile] tbrook (PG-13, Gen) - Excellent piece of Hurt!Sam.

All the Powers of the Thrones by [livejournal.com profile] diamondback (Teen, Gen or pre-slash per interpretation) - Description: Dean is injured; Castiel regrets.  Beautiful and touching. Excellent Hurt!Dean.

36 Versions of Hallelujah -- lines 4 and 5 by [livejournal.com profile] seraphwings (Unrated, Gen) - Tender, vivid, and well written; includes Castiel.

To Him Ascribe All Sin by [livejournal.com profile] liath (NC-17; Dean/Castiel, implied Sam/Dean) - Summary: Sam's gone in more ways than one, and Dean tries to deal with Hell catching up with him. Dean's suffering memories from hell, Sam's distant, and Castiel takes care of Dean.

i get a feeling by [livejournal.com profile] happywriter06 (R; Dean/Cassie) - A brief piece that really sings with emotion. Oh, Dean
twasadark: (Default)
So, finding really good DA fic is a bitch. But it's been my mission from God, or something. Anyhow, I'm a big time Max/Alec shipper and these are the ficcies that I really enjoyed, separated by level of explicitness, but otherwise in no particular order. Anyhow, I will update this list as I continue to make recs. Also, I have a Slash/Gen/Other recs post as well.


Adult Rated ... )Non-Explicit ... )
twasadark: (Castiel - Why Does Dean Always Bring Me)
More Castiel, anyone? Since we didn't see him this past week on our beloved show (sobs). All of the below, except the crossover, feature Castiel in one form or another. BTW, I apparently have a thing for fics in the 2nd person, because there are three of them recc'd here.

Sclerenchyma by [livejournal.com profile] tigriswolf (PG, Gen). 2nd person. Notes: the title equals "A supportive tissue of vascular plants, consisting of thick-walled, usually lignified cells. Sclerenchyma cells normally die upon reaching maturity but continue to fulfill their structural purpose in the plant." This is short and intimate, like a whispered confession.

teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above by [livejournal.com profile] i_speak_tongue  (Unrated, Gen) 2nd person. SUMMARY: What Dean sees that night nearly destroys him. Simply marvelous. Dean's pain just leaks out of every line; the distance between he and Sam is palpable. If you only read one of these recs, make it this one.

and here we go, a dancing in circles by [livejournal.com profile] opheliahyde (PG-13, Castiel/Ruby) Summary: An angel and a demon walk into an empty motel room... Clever little story.

They Say It's All About To End by [livejournal.com profile] bloodnfire (R, Sam/Dean) 2nd person. Summary: God wants you to save the world. A striking piece, both beautiful and painful.

Paradise by [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb (PG-13, Dean/Castiel) 1st person. Summary: Years after the apocalypse, Dean gets saved again. Outsider POV about Dean's broken life without Sam. It's touching and heartbreaking, but ultimately satisfying.

Laying of Hands
by [livejournal.com profile] seraphwings (Unrated, Dean/Castiel) A great Dean voice combined with Hurt!Dean and Angel sex? Yummy!

Supernatural/Dark Angel Crossover

(If I had a mom she'd say) Never Go Home With Strangers by [livejournal.com profile] dollydolittle (NC-17, Sam/Alec) Smooth writing, a great Alec voice, and all around cleverness make this a great read.

twasadark: (Alec 3)
More recs!  There are a lot of folks (including ME) over at the Fall Fandom Free for All that have requested Dark Angel ficcies. Maybe this post will inspire someone to fulfill a request or two? Please?

Supernatural/Dark Angel Crossover Verse Fic Recs

Dark Angel Vid Recs

20th Century Boy by [livejournal.com profile] crazywritinfool Summary: Transgenic Action Alec--he's your toy, your 20th century boy. Well, 21st century, but who's counting? All Alec, practically every frame. Beware! Your ovaries may explode from his gorgeousness.

Girlfriend by [livejournal.com profile] bunniqula Summary: Alec thinks Logan needs a new girlfriend... as long as that 'girlfriend' is him. (Logan/Alec and Logan/Max) Gratuitous use of balls, sticks, Jensen Ackles' mouth and other phallic and sexual innuendo. A clever, upbeat slashy vid that made me smile.
twasadark: (Castiel w/ blue tie)
So, I sorta LOVE THE STUFFIN' out of Castiel. And the thought of Dean/Castiel is PURE YUM!!! That said, most of these recs are slash, but there is a great gen fic in here, too.

Blink by [livejournal.com profile] untrue_accounts  (Dean/Castiel; PG-13) - A short, lovely, penetrating story that is sensual, but not explicit.   

Bad Things With You by [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb (Dean/Castiel; NC-17) - Summary: I don't know who you think you are, but I know this much is true. Dean is pissed off, suspicious, lonely, and horny. Castiel takes care of him the best that he can. I've read a lot of Dean/Castiel sex fics that don't seem to really work. This one does. YUM.

Lessons by [livejournal.com profile] annella (Dean/Castiel; NC-17) - Summary: Castiel has never been to Earth before, and it shows. Very vague spoilers for 4x02. The author calls this shameless PWP, but it's so much more - it's funny, hot and a little sweet, too. I have SO MUCH love for this story. If you're having a bad day, read it. It will definitely cheer you up. And possibly make you horny.

Heaven is For Thee Too High by [livejournal.com profile] fools_game  (Gen; PG) - Dean is hurt, Sam is concerned, and Castiel is by turns tender and menacing. A well written, totally enjoyable little story.


twasadark: (Kitten of cuteness)
Thanks to all for your kind words over at my last post. *smishes everybody* I'm back to my crackalicious self, for good or ill ... recs, anyone?

Hurt/Comfort

I love love love h/c! Most of these recs are very short gen stories, but they are wonderfully well written. There are 71 (!!!) h/c fics over at [livejournal.com profile] tvm 's hurt/comfort meme here.

White Noise by [livejournal.com profile] smilla02 (PG; Gen) - - Short, beautiful, vivid, and touching.

H/C meme ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] aynslee - Just perfect. Sam comforts his brother. Prompt: Dean curled up in a shivering traumatised ball of flashback and Sam curled around him

H/C meme ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] ifyouweremine I love how broken Dean is, and how much he needs Sam. And how gentle and kind Sam is!!! Prompt: Sam cleans Dean's wounds and washes his hair.

H/C meme ficlet
by [livejournal.com profile] i_speak_tongue So much pain, but more love. And Sam is so gentle and sweet. Prompt: Sam takes Dean to a cabin to nurse him back to health.

Humor & a Coda

Leech!Ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] katriel1987 (who is probably going to kill me for reccing this to the world) I have been harassing pleading for [livejournal.com profile] katriel1987 to write a horror fic about her recent encounters with leeches. She wrote this funny snippet that deserves worldwide acclaim. Oh, and while you're on this page, scroll up and read her short, impactful AU of 4.01.

General Awesomeness

Whitewash (R; Gen) by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0 Summary: "People with schizophrenia sometimes hear voices others don't hear, believe that others are broadcasting their thoughts to the world, or become convinced that others are plotting to harm them. These experiences can make them fearful and withdrawn and cause difficulties when they try to have relationships with others" (NIMH, 2008). This is what I have to say about this fic: DAYUM!!! It is kick ass in the best possible way. Just go read it. You won't be disappointed!


twasadark: (Tree with light)
If you haven't seen Supernatural 4.01 yet then stop reading now.  Otherwise, have at it ...
