Title: Divine Madness
Characters: Dean, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 22K
Warnings/contains: Violence, suicidal thoughts, mental health issues, ableism (explicit and internalised), angst.
Summary: After the events of 10x09, Dean decides he's too dangerous to be allowed to roam free any longer, let alone to hunt. Sam still seems to think he can be saved, and he knows Cas wants to believe it, too, so rather than trust them to keep him on lockdown, Dean gets himself arrested.
Life on a secure psych ward is... well, not awesome, but Dean can deal. At least, until patients start dying in mysterious ways and he realizes that getting away from hunting is going to be harder than it seemed. It quickly becomes evident that the deaths are supernatural in origin -- but will hunting down the monster mean Dean ends up becoming one himself?
Notes: This is my entry for the 2016/17 [livejournal.com profile] deanwbigbang, and I was lucky enough to score [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams as my artist! You can check out her stunning illustrations here.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight for all her beta help! You’re a star. ♥
I read various personal accounts about life on a psych ward while writing this story, and they varied quite a lot. If I have managed to commit any wild inaccuracies, you have my apologies. Almost everybody in this story, including Dean (especially Dean) has a screwed-up attitude to mental illness. That means there’s both explicit ableism/fetishisation from other characters, and internalised ableism in Dean’s thoughts. If this is likely to be triggering or upsetting for you, please don’t read this story. If you’d like some more information to make up your mind, please feel free to drop me a line here or on Tumblr.

Title: ...And the Deep Blue Sea
Rating: G
Word Count: 1800
Warnings: Spoilers for 12x03.

Title: Pharmakon
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6300
Warnings: Mentions of drug use; suicidal thoughts.
Summary: Sometimes, it’s hard to tell the poison from the antidote. Or, Dean and Amara's relationship from 9x11 through to the end of Season 11.
Author's Notes: Written for the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight, for the 2016 round of [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen. I couldn’t settle on just one prompt, so this fic combines #4 (We often see Dean popping pills on screen - what are they? Where did he get them from? Why does he take them? Just something about Dean and medication, please.) and #6 (Something which explores the connection between Dean and Amara more deeply.) I just hope it does them some kind of justice.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] viviansface and [livejournal.com profile] caranfindel for all their beta help. :)

Rating: PG-13

Notes: Written for the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight, for the [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid Nepal earthquake appeal. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long, and thanks for all your patience – I just hope it’s worth the wait.

Characters: Hannah, Cas
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/contains: Spoilers for 11.01; now Jossed by 11.02
Word count: 1500
Summary: Heaven sends Hannah to deliver its justice.
Notes: I wrote this as a coda to 11.01, with the speculation that the angels who grabbed Cas weren't actually working for Heaven, but didn't get around to posting it before it was Jossed. After 11.02, I want to post it anyway.

Title: A Clean Slice of Life
Author: [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Implied violence against lamps. Excessive cleanliness and fascination with germs.
Word count: ~ 1800
Summary: Sam’s almost thirty when he discovers that his brother is actually a clean freak.

So, I woke up this morning to an awesome birthday present. :D [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight wrote this wonderful, insightful fic in response to one of my prompts on the [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time wishlist meme (which closes to new wishlists at the end of August, so if you have any wishes as yet unposted, better get them down quick!) I'd asked for anything focused on Dean's clean-freak tendencies, because that is my favourite thing, and she used the prompt as a filter for a serious of sharp observations, by turns heartbreaking, hilarious, and hopeful, of Sam and Dean's relationship, its many facets, and their differing relationships to the idea of home. It's absolutely lovely, and you should all go and read it right now! ♥

Title: Take Me To The Bridge
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters: Dean, Sam, Cas, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Animal cruelty.
Word count: 23,000
Summary: It’s supposed to be a routine hunt. A few farm animals mutilated a few towns over. It sounds like the work of some two-bit demon—just another day at the office for two experienced hunters and an angel.
But this case is closer to home than it seems. Before long, Dean is in the clutches of a dangerous spirit, and Sam and Cas must try to end an ancient family feud before the whole town—and Dean—gets caught in the crossfire.
Notes: Written for the 2015 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams and [livejournal.com profile] caranfindel for all their beta help, and to [livejournal.com profile] little_jade for being super-talented and a delight to work with. ♥ The art masterpost can be found here -- please go and shower her with praise!
This story was finished before the later part of S10 aired, so it takes place in what is now a slightly AU future. Dean no longer has the Mark of Cain, but the Darkness isn’t a thing, and Cas regained his ability to fly when he got his grace back.

Summary: “Cas. We are not having a conversation about the moral decisions of Star Wars characters.”
“No,” Castiel agrees, “we’re not.”

Author's Notes: I've never actually been in a Hot Topic, but I picture it as some bastard lovechild of Camden Market and Forbidden Planet. Forgive me if I'm wrong.

Title: The First Casualty
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters: Sam, Cas, Abel
Rating: PG
Warnings: Angst? I feel like warning for that in SPN fic is redundant, really…
Word count: 2900
Summary: AU take on 10.17. Sam takes a walk in the veil, and meets an old ghost.
Author's Notes: I started writing this before 10.17, based on the seance scene in the promo, but didn't get around to finishing it before the episode aired, so I guess now it's an AU.
Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight for her beta help and suggestions. ♥

Title: Make Yourself At Home
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Vague references to self-harm/suicide attempts.
Word count: ~1500
Summary: Dean's chugging green smoothies and Sam's fixing up the bunker. Go figure.
Author's Notes: Fill for a prompt over on the [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time comment meme: Sam is nothing if not prepared. Its not that Sam doesn't trust Dean to fight the MOC, he just knows how strong addiction can be ... And he's not chaining Dean up in the bunker's dungeon again. So he quietly renovates a room in the bunker in case Dean has a relapse and needs to be kept away from others and safe from himself until they find a cure.
Somehow it makes Sam feel a little less helpless...The process of padding walls and finding furniture Dean can't use against himself or others is painful - but it's Sam's turn to take care of Dean, and he's going to do it right.
