Conversational Winchester for Trolls by [livejournal.com profile] eloise_bright


Absolutely fucking hilarious riff on Billy Goat's Gruff. Wonderful.

Three Ways the Winchesters Were Never Werewolves by [livejournal.com profile] angstslashhope


Very funny and sweet this is a AU in which each of the Winchester boys gets to be a werewolf. I love the concept of John as a happy loveable werewolf because his human side is such an inveterate hunter. Love little Sammy turning to Aladdin's lamp and turning poor Dean into a were pup in his desire to have a puppy and Sam as a werewolf is very sweet.

Night of the Living Dead by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes


Sam, Dean and Pumpkin the cat stuck in a tree fighting hungry zombies. Utterly hilarious.

Gen but with undertones

Sam and Dean end up caring for an orphaned infant. It shouldn't work at all but it manages to be sweet and silly at the same time. From the baby calling Sam "Smammy" and feeding him rock salt in his sleep to Dean naming the child and his eagerness to keep him this is the very best kind of crack fic. Plus the conversation about the Pepsi truck is laugh out loud funny.

Artificial Exemplar by Maygin


Young Sam and Dean on Halloween with a cast of demons and gummi bears. Teenage Dean lecturing Sam on his decision to "kill" the poor gummi bear who was acting against his will is comic genius.

Special by Lady Ophelia


John Winchester on Parent/Teacher day learning about what his boys have been up to. I love tiny manipulative "But Dean says...!" Sammy and mini hustler Dean. Very cute.

You Get What You Give by [livejournal.com profile] alethialia


The Winchesters tackle the horrors of Halloween. Sweet story in which poor Dean suffers the indignity of dressing up like a gay M&M.

When Siblings E-Attack by [livejournal.com profile] eighth_horizon


Dean harangues Sam (at Stanford) via AIM. Its very funny (Samma- lama - ding-dong stayed with me for a while) but it hefts a hell of an emotional punch.

That's Easy For You To Say by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess


Sam and Dean go hunting werewolves but an old friend of Dean's gets in the way. Very funny with a wonderfully realised OFC.

Bloody Mary

Guessing Games by [livejournal.com profile] lithium_doll


Adorable, very sweet coda in which Dean tries to guess Sam's secret.


Cracked by [livejournal.com profile] whereupon


Brilliant Dean centric coda to Asylum. I'm still annoyed at how weakly that episode ended with Sam half heartedly apologising to Dean for pointing the gun at him and pulling the trigger 4 times! Cracked gives the episode the emotional resolution it should have had. Dean is no push over here - he may recognise that the incident wasn't Sam's fault but he doesn't rush to instantly forgive him either. Brutal, beautiful and very very real. Superb.

To Forgive and Forget by [livejournal.com profile] joyfulgirl41


Very similar to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode Normal Again this is nevertheless an intriguing AU take on the end of Asylum.


At Night by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0


Absolutely heartrending AU tale in which Dean instead of being healed by the handy deus ex machina of a bound reaper, dies of heart failure. Desperately sad without being mushy or sentimental this is one of the very best codas to an episode I have read.


Crossroads: The Unlit Path by [livejournal.com profile] eighth_horizon


Pitch black AU tale in which Dean is sacrificed to the scarecrow and Sam wreaks a bloody revenge on the town.


Cut and Run by [livejournal.com profile] maygra


Heartbreaking look at a deeply traumatised Sam and Dean after the end of Shadow. The section in which a devastated Dean silently breaks down unwilling to let Sam see how terrified he is is agonising to read.

Never Alone by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0


As much a character study of John as a coda to Shadow this is a gentle bitter sweet look at John as he is forced to run and leave his children behind.

The Benders

Side of the Road by [livejournal.com profile] estrella30


Sexy angsty coda with Sam and Dean comforting each other after Sam's kidnapping.

Dead Man's Blood

You will not die, it is not Poison by [livejournal.com profile] cdeacon


AU take on the episode with a fatalistic Dean awaiting the return of his family. Eerie and disquieting.

Last Rites by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess


AU take on the episode with Vamp Sam and Dean.

Devil's Trap

For Devil's Trap recommendations click here

All Episodes

Almost by Faye Dartmouth


Disturbing somewhat blood thirsty tale which retells the ending of every episode up to Shadow detailing the way the Winchesters almost died.

The End is the Beginning is the End by [livejournal.com profile] la_folle_allure


Drabbles relating to every episode up to The Benders. I found the one relating to Bloody Mary to be somewhat cliched but The Journey Home is brutally powerful in its simplicity. Highly original.

Ringing Pavlov's Bell by [livejournal.com profile] whereupon

Series of beautiful character moments from every episode in Season 1. The one for Devil's Trap just kills me dead.
fairyd123: (Jensen sleeping)
A frequent complaint in the Supernatural fandom is that Wincest dominates proceedings and that there are no gen stories for those who prefer the brothers relationship to be strictly platonic. However, there are some amazing gen stories as the stories featured below illustrate:

Crossing the Line by [livejournal.com profile] eighth_horizon

Sam and Dean investigate a malevolent spirit which is drowning children. Brilliantly characterised, atmospheric story with the slightest hint of Groundhog Day flavouring the plot.

A Stand Up Man by [livejournal.com profile] alethialia

Sweet natured story which depicts Sam reluctantly moving on with his life after Jess's death. Lovely character study of Sam and featuring some pitch perfect laugh out loud Sam/Dean banter.

Double Dutch by [livejournal.com profile] traveller

Stylish, highly evocative story which has Sam and Dean searching for the demon in New York. The language used is sheer poetry - the words don't so much flow as dance across the page and the use of an unreliable narrator is an interesting framing device. Vivid.

Law of Diminishing Returns by [livejournal.com profile] witchofthedogs

Absolute gorgeous look at the months of the year and their significance to the Winchesters. Melancholy in tone this is a story which lingers long after you've finished reading. "January" in particular is superb - a beautiful drabble as we see John's grief from Dean's point of view.

Family Comes First by [livejournal.com profile] ethrosdemon

Slight Sam/OFC

Supposedly crackfic this story (which is both moving and funny in turn) features Dean as a father. Dean's son Jack is adorable, Sam and Dean's interactions as they get to grips with the role reversal of Sam hunting and Dean earning an honest wage are funny and believable and it features an original love interest that I can completely get behind. It's incredibly rare to find an OFC who is not a Mary Sue but this story manages it brilliantly.

Morgantown by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes

Lengthy plot based story in which Sam and Dean battle necromancers. The story explores Sam's growing telekinisis and features another well drawn OFC.

Also by the same author is Never Summer an atmospheric haunted house story in which Sam is asked by an old college friend to investigate the mysterious suicide of her sister in a remote Colorado hotel.

The Company You Keep by [livejournal.com profile] maygra

Sam is taken by a ghost when he and Dean investigate a routine haunting. Powerful story with melancholy undertones. The depth of the Sam and Dean relationship as showcased in this story brings a lump to the throat.

City Limit Line by [livejournal.com profile] whereupon

Short,powerful intensely visual story.

Don't Pay the Ferryman by [livejournal.com profile] maygra

Novella length story which looks at the shadowy figures that track Sam and Dean's lives. Fast paced with spot on characterisation and an ending that made me cry this story really can't be recommended highly enough.
fairyd123: (Jensen blue)
Given the nature of the category all recs are Sam/Dean

Rodeo by [livejournal.com profile] kittyfisher

Sam, Dean, a sex club and Sam role playing as a cowboy. What's not to love? Well written and smoking hot.

Beautiful , Broken and Bound by [livejournal.com profile] audrarose

Sam and Dean are on the hunt for vampires who have a particular interest in Dean. Incredibly sensual and the image of Dean in goth makeup lingers.

Control:Lost by [livejournal.com profile] consternatiofic

Part of a series with Sam and Dean stumbling their way through an increasingly kinky relationship. Hot with very strong D/s tones and intriguing character insights.

Owning by [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster and [livejournal.com profile] mona1347

This story is part of a series which started with the endearingly cliched tale of Sam and Dean being turned into sex crazed loons as a result of inhaling pollen from a strange flower. The series is insanely hot (I am a sucker for stories where Dean is the sub) and this particular tale has Sam realising just how much Dean trusts him.

The series continues with That I would be good (first time story) and Of Lovers Finding (written by [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster alone) which is a scorchingly hot story with features a corset clad subservient Dean.

Just Reach Out by [livejournal.com profile] sevenfists

Sexy, sensuous beautifully written car porn.

Untitled by [livejournal.com profile] nilchance

First Sam/Dean I ever read and still one of the best. Sam and Dean are targeted by succubi and must face the consequences.
fairyd123: (Demon Eyes John)
All of the post Devil's Trap stories have been amazing and for the most part have been so desperately sad that they have just ripped my heart out. With a couple of exceptions the majority of the stories are death fics.

All But Risen by [livejournal.com profile] eighth_horizon


Amazing, beatiful story which has Sam speaking his mind to an unconscious John and a comatose Dean. I love Sam trying to get Dean to wake up by threatening to read him chick fic - The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood! Wonderfully written and impressively close to the spoilers that have just been released for the season 2 premiere In My Time of Dying

Don't Look Back by [livejournal.com profile] eloise_bright


Oh dear god this just floored me! Barely 700 words long and packs a brutal emotional punch. Incredibly clever little fic.

Broken Puppets by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0


Set in the immediate aftermath of the crash with a physically and emotionally decimated Dean left screaming for his mother to the soundtrack of a woman weeping. Haunting.

On a Steel Horse by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess


Sam and Dean are gone and John must continue his war against the demon alone. Clever and disquieting - a bleak scenario that works powerfully well.

Crash and Five Days by [livejournal.com profile] maygra


The demon steals Sam from the wreckage of the Impala and Dean must fight to get him back. Beautifullly written and featuring a genuinely scary version of the demon.

The Ice is Thin by [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster and [livejournal.com profile] mona1347


This story breaks my heart into a million, trillion tiny pieces. Sam and Dean are pale imitations of their former selves in this story and it really hurts to imagine them like that. To see the ever cocky effusive Dean reduced to a virtually mute man who panics if his brother is out of his line of sight for more than a few minutes is agonising to behold. Beautiful and desperately sad.

There are also sequels : Underneath My Lucid Skin Until I Can See Again and Where My Heart Lies All by [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster

Prayers to Summon the Destroying Angel and The Sky Will Fall, We Will Rise by [livejournal.com profile] esorlehcar


Desperately sad look at Sam and Dean trying to pick up the shattered pieces of their life after their father's death.

And Feel What Its Like to Be New


Wonderful Dean centric fic as he finds him counting the days until he can feel safe and whole again.
fairyd123: (Jensen sleeping)
First part of my season 1 recs master list.

Horror is a bit of a vague category so the list encompasses darker stories which leave you with a feeling of unease.

Decomposure by Paperbkywriter


After Sam is killed on a hunt Dean turns to an old adversary to bring him back. But reanimating a psychic has unexpected side effects with Sam re-born as a psi-vampire. Disturbing, compelling and very sad with a pitch perfect Dean voice.

More Glory to Their Eyes Than Blood by [livejournal.com profile] fryadvocate


Extraordinary post apocalyptic story which has Sam and Dean menaced by an unseen threat - "the jungle". Economical in its set up, highly atmospheric and dripping with a sense of despair the story effortlessly creates an atmosphere of real unease which lingers long after you've finished reading.

The Thousand Ways To Bleed by [livejournal.com profile] lithiumdoll

Slight Sam/Dean

Shades of Groundhog Day in a brilliantly eerie story featuring a disturbingly insane Dean.

The Fall From Grace in Ten Easy Steps by [livejournal.com profile] maygra


Ten beautifully crafted drabbles which gave me the shivers. Nine and Ten are just plain haunting.

The Sound and the Fury by [livejournal.com profile] follow_midnight


Dean is possessed and violently attacks his family. Dark as hell and almost unbearable to read as a catalogue of absolute horrors is unleashed on the Winchester boys.

The Good Son by [livejournal.com profile] witchofthedogs

Gen with references to Wincest

Dean makes a deal with the devil. Brilliant Dean characterisation and extremely bleak.

Wound So Tight by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess

Gen Dean/OFC

Post Devil's Trap the demon possesses Sam. This story is essentially Dean's worst nightmare bought to life. Affecting.

Pack up the Moon by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess


Future fic in which Sam's powers have become deadly and completely out of his control.
