FIC: The Cape May Haunted Trolley Tour (SPN, PG, 4,300 words)

In honor of having sent our really hilariously long Big Bang off to the betas (SORRY BETAS) last night, I bring you fic that's been chillin' on my hard drive for a very long time. It's SPN, even! WILD.

Title: The Cape May Haunted Trolley Tour
Author: causeways
Fandom: SPN
Rating: PG
Pairings: gen (you have no idea how much it pains me to say that!)
Word Count: 4,300
Disclaimer: SPN belongs to Eric Kripke, not me. I would have done some reeeeally different things with it if it were mine!
Summary: After a family disappears on the southern Jersey Shore, Sam and Dean investigate.
Author's Notes: This was originally going to be the beginning of something much, much longer, but that wasn't happening. This is set in some vague nebulous period of canon between the end of S2 and the start of anything particularly plotty in S3.

let's talk about you for a minute

I've been reading a lot of Merlin fic, as one does, a good bit of which has been modern day AU. I really love modern day Merlin AUs. (There are four fics in particular that I love like burning; two of them are still WIPs, though, so I think I'll save that rec post till they're done.) And I've been thinking about other Merlin AUs I would want, and there is one that I have not seen and am pretty much dying for.

I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how much I would love to have a Merlin footballer AU. Normally if I were dying for something I would at least consider writing it myself, but since in this case I know shit nothing about football, I am not even close to the person who should be writing this. Clearly someone who knows football should make this happen. Arthur the international man of mystery football star! Merlin the . . . sort of incompetent keeper who manages to make these saves out of NOWHERE and it just doesn't make a damned bit of sense and maybe he is slightly magic! (This is another thing I love -- when Merlin's still got magic in modern day AUs.)

I don't have a fully fleshed-out plot or anything, and just in terms of not knowing British/football culture I do NOT feel like I should be writing this -- I think it would be a much better and richer story written by someone who does -- but anyway, the idea was inspired by this blind item on Dlisted a while back*:

Which star athlete is having an affair with one of his teammates? In the macho world of sports, homosexuality is rarely discussed. However, these two teammates - one much more high profile than the other - have been practically joined at the hip for the past several months. Both are married, and both of their wives are in for a nasty shock if they find out. Team managment does know, and is seriously considering trading the lesser player to prevent a full-blown public scandal that might diminish their star’s reputation and ticket sales.

*How much do I LOVE Michael K, btw? SO MUCH. Never has anyone managed to gross me out so consistently in so many new and hilarious ways.

I would cut the line re: the marriage and the wives, and just leave it as "Arthur is the huge star and Merlin is the teammate," but anyway. If this kind of AU already exists and I just missed it, clearly you need to link me now. Otherwise, fly free, little footballer AU idea! Fly free!

Oh and here, have another couple of ideas for stories in other fandoms! Two first lines for stories I am never going to write:

Sam/Dean: In Stone Creek, Alabama, on a night when it's too hot to sleep under the covers, Dean pulls Sam's boxers down and licks up the length of his cock.

John/Rodney: Not that Rodney was opposed to being bathed in milk and honey, exactly, even when the milk came from cacti and the honey was the secretion of a creature that looked a lot like a yak. The women doing the bathing were all kinds of hot, and in the next tub over Sheppard definitely looked like he was enjoying himself.

I don't care if you credit me for anything above, but do shoot me a link if you do anything with them, so that I can see these stories actually existing in the world. ESPECIALLY THE FOOTBALLER AU.

And okay, hopefully this won't be confusing: now for some stories I AM writing!

Post a single sentence or two extract from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

Some original fic, some fanfic. A couple of these are rather less in progress than more, but they're all in some state of partial completion. And again, these are the stories I'm currently writing myself, so these ideas belong to me (and in one case, also to walkawayslowly). They are not up for grabs! (Although personally, I think the stuff above sounds way more exciting. FOOTBALLER AU.)

1. The rental house sprawls over its beachfront lot. It's a Cape Cod, two gables, cedar shakes and a widow's walk; it's not a beach house, it's a mansion.

2. Charlie's proximity brought me great comfort. And there were other benefits, too, to this arrangement, beyond the warmth.

3. An army is only as strong as its weakest man. Uther had drilled this into Arthur's head repeatedly, until it stuck; until it was the only thing Arthur could think about when he was on the training pitch until supper each night—that he would not be that man.

4. So Jared tells him about the dining hall, and then he remembers that he never got to tell Jensen about last night either, so he backtracks to tell Jensen about that, and then goes back to the dining hall, and ends with knocking over the trays and having the dining hall lady glowering at him as he knelt in the middle of orange juice and left over eggs.

5. The taxi dropped Jared off on Jensen's street before, but the West Village is a rabbit warren of streets.

Oh, little Merlin story, be done already.

Author: causeways
Fandom: SPN
Rating: R

Disclaimer: All characters, situations, etc. belong to Eric Kripke and others. Except for the demon poodle. The demon poodle is mine.
Summary: You can never tell when a conversation with a really smokin' woman is going to come back and bite you in the ass. Dean gets cursed into dating Sam.

what the icon says.

I'm really smart, yo. I uploaded five Cake albums for regala_electra this morning, and then I never posted the links.

Here! Have awesome music! All .zip files, all on MegaUpload.

Comfort Eagle

Fashion Nugget

Motorcade of Generosity

Pressure Chief

Prolonging the Magic

I can do tracklistings too if anyone wants them!

Anyway, I'm in San Diego, and it's lovely if a little bit cool and overcast. Today I learned that trying to play ultimate frisbee on the beach while hung-over is a poor choice. Surprising, isn't it? Also, that walkawayslowly kid, I really like her or something. I talked to her for an extraordinarily long time while drunk last night, which I figure is just repayment for that one time she drunk-dialed me and talked to me in Whale. ("Helloooooooooo, I aaaaaaaaaam druuuuuuuunk.")

Oh yeah, and spn_j2_bigbang summaries got revealed! theoret and I are behind this guy:
Title: Hey, It Could Happen

Summary: This is the story of how unicorns saved Sam and Dean. It's a little embarrassing. Dean would like to make very clear that he has absolutely not befriended the unicorns. Also, he totally doesn't have a thing for his brother.

YUP.

Dude, today's the one year anniversary of when I first posted SPN fic! How crazy! The Placement of Water and Lead was the fic (Sam/Dean, NC-17, 10,969 words) -- post-Heart Evil!Sam yay!

Ahaha, I just tallied it up: I've written over two hundred thousand words of SPN and CW RPS in the past year. 206,660 words, to be exact. MADNESS. But really fun madness. :D

Also? I, uh, seem to be doing spn_j2_bigbang after all. Heh. There's this fic theoret and I wrote a billion years ago and then never posted because it was in bad need of a rewrite, soooo yeah. That's happening! First time Wincest with a hearty dose of craaaack.

aljslkjdfa, this is ALL walkawayslowly's FAULT. And maybe a little bit ignited's. VILE ENABLERS.

ETA: fourfreedoms thinks I don't love her, BUT I DO.

a pair of recs (both Sam/Dean)

I really don't want to say a lot about these two fics because I don't want to give anything away, but first you should read:

Me and the Devil Blues by britomart_is
Sam/Dean | R | 2,200 words
It’s been nine months since the hellhounds dragged Dean into the Pit, and Sam drives along the coast highway with an empty passenger seat beside him. He hums along to Black Sabbath in the tape deck—Dean’s music, not his, but Sam learned to make concessions a long time ago.

And then you should REALLY REALLY REALLY read:

Burn My Body Down By the Highway Side by britomart_is
Sam/Dean | NC-17 | 3,500 words

That second one won't make a bit of sense without the first, and the first one is totally awesome, but the SECOND, omg, I can't even deal. Seriously, I don't want to say anything else at all. Just. SO GOOD.

SPN art rec!

OMFG. Okay so, reallycorking has been one of my favorite fanartists for approximately a gazillion years. She's been drawing pretty much exclusively (if not exclusively!) for HP for quite a while, but dudes, it's so damned awesome. And literally two nights ago I randomly spent a couple hours making walkawayslowly look at a bunch of RC's art (Merrin was all, "I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE MAKING ME LOOK AT HP HET. And yet I cannot STOP.") like this, and this, and this, and OMFG THIS.

And then TONIGHT reallycorking posted SAM/DEAN FANART. Seriously, I DON'T THINK I COULD BE MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS IF I TRIED. SO MUCH AWESOME. GO. LOOK.

Drunk!Sam and Dean

EEEEE.

FIC: In the Telling (Sam/Dean, NC-17, 1,391 words) and some shortfic recs

The authors just got revealed over at the spn_gleeweek [guess the author competition], so I get to claim my story!

Title: In the Telling
Author: causeways
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Word Count: 1,391
Disclaimer: Belongs to Kripke, not to me!
Summary: After Sam gets him out of the deal, Dean fucks a lot of girls.
Author's Notes: Thanks to memphis86 for looking this over!

( In the Telling )

I sort of want to insert a long paragraph of blah about warnings and how I hate them (this is related because in spite of the fact that Dean sleeps with like a dozen girls in my spn_gleeweek fic I would never, ever warn for het in it), but I think I'll save that for another day.

Right now, I want to point you over to girlmostlikely's [accidental schmoop meme] where I got coerced into writing ~400 words of Sam/Dean, gruffness, the giver being more surprised than the receiver. Coerced, yup. Writing that was REALLY PAINFUL, let me just tell you. *g*

And speaking of the accidental schmoop meme and of the GtA competition, have some shortfic recs!

Jared/Jensen, off-season, missing each other by dontyouwaitup
PG | 565 words | from the accidental schmoop meme
I love the matter-of-fact-ness and also their banter SO MUCH.

Sam/Dean, taking a bath together by memphis86
R-ish | 556 words | from the accidental schmoop meme
My comment on this was something along the lines of, "I just made a happy noise so high-pitched that ONLY THE DOGS HEARD IT." First time Sam/Dean in a BATHTUB.

The lady of the right hand by fleshflutter
pre-series Dean-centric gen | PG-13 | 1,789 words | from spn_gleeweek
Dean's last night in New Orleans with that voodoo gig.
This is one of those fics that makes me wonder why I don't read more gen than I do. Or maybe it's just that fleshflutter's really awesome. Dean and a TOTALLY FANTASTIC original character.

Joie de Vivre by memphis86
Sam/Dean | PG-13 | 1,906 words | from spn_gleeweek
This is just a really cool short fic that TOTALLY MESSES WITH YOUR MIND. I'm a big fan of that. Sam in the South of France!

The Eyes Have It by __tiana__
Jared/Jensen | PG-13 | 1,200ish words
This isn't actually from either the accidental schmoop meme OR from the GtA entries, but it's short and also all about Jared realizing that there are 28374 pictures of Jensen staring at him like he is COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH HIM, so I really don't see how this could not get included.

*

I haven't actually read all of the spn_gleeweek fics yet, so there may be a part two to this after I get my act together. And now back to doing . . . whatever it is you do at your internship after you are already finished researching replacement refrigerator parts. Writing fic?? We shall see.
spn: get in it your ass already

FIC: A Rose by Any Other Name (Would Be Just As Gay) (SPN, Sam/Dean, NC-17)

What with everyone frantically writing their Big Bangs, LJ seems to be sadly devoid of porn lately! Clearly this called for some Sam/Dean rimming.

Title: A Rose by Any Other Name (Would Be Just As Gay)
Author: causeways
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Word Count: 673
Disclaimer: All characters, situations, etc. belong to Eric Kripke and others.
Summary: Sam and Dean spend the night at a bed-and-breakfast. With rimming.
Author's Notes: girlmostlikely wanted rimming! So did Dean, even if he won't admit it. girlmostlikely is also behind the title.
Edit as of Feb. 12, 2010: There's also a Russian translation now, thanks to lmonombrel! It's here (on LJ) or here (off-LJ).
