anactoria: (Benny BOMF)
Here's my contribution to this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, written to accompany [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair's gorgeous art piece, The Raven Path. Please take a look at the art -- it's lovely and atmospheric! This is a creepy-fairies AU that starts out during the Stanford era and picks up again in S7, so we'll just have to assume that 6x09 never happened in this universe. ;)
Thanks to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight for all her beta help. :)

Art Title: The Raven Path
Prompt Number: S2013
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair

Fic Title: Born of Mortal Flesh
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Fandom/Genre: SPN, canon divergence
Pairing(s): Dean/Benny
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 27,745
Warnings: None
Summary: Canon-divergent AU, (very) loosely inspired by the Ballad of Tam Lin. While on a hunt with John, Dean discovers a mysterious mirror in a witch's attic, and finds himself transported to the world of Faerie. On the other side, he meets somebody who's been stuck there much longer than him. Somebody who makes him reconsider everything he's been taught about trusting monsters, and a few things about himself that he’s been denying. But Benny's a favourite pet of the King of Fairyland, and their budding relationship seems doomed. Years later, Dean finds himself back on the other side of the mirror—and a second chance to save Benny may just be a chance to save the world.

Title: The Gift
Characters/pairing: Dean/Benny, Dean/Amara
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 2500
Warnings/contains: None, assuming you've seen the end of S11.
Summary: Canon-divergent at the end of 11x23. Being imprisoned is lonely, and Amara spends more than a little time wandering through Dean's memories. Among them, she finds somebody who surprises her.
Notes: A little birthday fic for the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight. ♥ A while back we were talking about the possibility of an AU where Amara brings back Benny, and I ended up writing... not so much that as the lead-up to it.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] majestic_duxk for the super-efficient beta!

anactoria: (dean chosen)
Title: A Path of Cinders
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 6000
Warnings/contains: Angst, violence.
Summary: AU version of 10x03 "Soul Survivor". Dean lost the Mark of Cain when the demon cure took effect -- but he lost himself, too. He lies unconscious in the bunker, lost in his guilt. Castiel walks in dreams to find him.
Notes: This is for [livejournal.com profile] tkodami, for the Nepal [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid auction. I know I've owed it to you for well over a year now, and I can only apologise. I got very attached to this fic idea and I guess I built it up into something Very Important in my head. Being a terrible perfectionist procrastinator, I ended up putting it off because I knew it couldn't live up to the fic that existed in my head. I suck. So, I'm very sorry, but I still hope that there's something here for you to enjoy. <33
The prompt was this quote, which couldn't help make me think of MoC Dean and his post-demon angst: Absolution is a religious idea that is not compatible with liberation. Whatever we have done, we have done. Nothing and no-one can stop us from being the person who has done the worst actions we have taken. I structured this vaguely after the story of Tam Lin, since I know you like a bit of mythology. And I think I might have made demon Dean a little more demonic than he was in canon, but I hope you won't mind. ;)
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] viviansface for all the beta help!

anactoria: (devil on shoulder)
Phew! I've been living with this fic for what feels like forever, and it's kind of a relief to finally have it done and posted. It's probably the darkest thing I've written in fandom, and definitely the thing I feel most unsure about (though I feel a lot less horrible about it than I did, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight's sterling beta work and sensible words. *hugs*)

If you're going to read it, please do read the warnings/notes! Sam doesn't behave very sensibly or very well in this fic, and I know that sort of thing isn't everybody's cup of tea. Just... be aware, I guess. XD Anyway, here is The Thing, with wonderful, wonderful art by [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams. Even if you don't fancy reading the story, I heartily encourage you to go and check it out, because it's beautiful. ♥

Title: Via Negationis
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams
Genre: SPN, slash, canon-divergent AU
Pairing: Sam/Lucifer
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 60,000
Warnings: Major character death, very dubious consent, vague allusions to Cage torture and non-con, canon-typical violence, choking, manipulation, angst, unhealthy attitudes to just about everything.
Summary: AU from partway through 11.14. Lucifer's dead. Sam knows that. He was there; he saw it happen. But now Amara's gone and the Devil is on his doorstep, bedraggled, mortal, and apparently willing to throw himself on the mercy of the Winchesters.
There has to be more to this than meets the eye. Sam can't help feeling that he's playing right into Lucifer's hands, whether he runs and hides or expresses his long-suppressed anger. As events unfold around them, though, he starts to wonder if either of them is really in control of this thing...

Read it on AO3. | Check out the art!

[livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas reveals are up, so I can post the fic I wrote for Serie11!

Title: The Cuckoo Father
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas, Claire, Amelia (Novak)
Rating: R
Warnings: None
Word count: 8300
Summary: Season 7 AU. When Daphne Allen found a half-drowned amnesiac in the river, she did what any sensible person would and called the police. They identified him as Jimmy Novak, missing since 2008, and reunited him with his wife and daughter. But his memories refuse to return, and he can't shake the feeling that he belongs elsewhere. Maybe it has something to do with the voice he hears in his dreams...
Notes: Written for the prompt: 7x17 from 'Emmanuel's' pov bc he can hearing dean praying to him (even though he doesn't know its praying) but instead of being with some random (like ?? how did that even happen) he ends back with Amelia and Claire. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] viviansface for the beta!

Title: Zenith
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] kuwlshadow
Fandom/Genre: SPN, canon-divergent AU, hurt/comfort
Pairing(s): Dean/Cas
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 33,000
Warnings: Nothing you wouldn’t find in canon.
Summary: AU from 9.06 (“Heaven Can’t Wait”). Still relatively new to humanity, Castiel struggles with both Dean’s confusing behaviour and the loss of his angelic faculties. When a pissed-off witch restores his ability to see the supernatural, the curse seems like a blessing. He can help his friends again – and when Dean’s lies blow up in his face and Sam is once again left hovering between life and death, Cas is happy to be useful. But his abilities keep getting stronger, and they might just be more than a human brain can handle.
Notes: My entry for the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang 2015. Phew!
Many thanks to my betas, [livejournal.com profile] aerynsun5, [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams, and [livejournal.com profile] rons_pigwidgeon for all their help. And many, many thanks to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] kuwlshadow, who stepped in to pinch-hit when my original artist was forced to drop out, like a DCBB fairy godmother. Please go check out the art masterpost here!

Title: Graveyard Shift
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: NC-17
Warnings/contains: Smut, futurefic, fallen!Cas. Possibly the fluffiest thing I've ever written.
Word count: 4100
Summary: “Dean.”
He finds Cas looking right in his eyes and swallows hard. Tries to take his hand back, but Cas catches it and holds on tight. He pulls Dean in closer, and something kindles in his eyes, then. Not a reprimand, and not just the waning adrenaline kick of a hunt. Heat and want and the offer of reassurance all mixed up together.
Okay, so maybe this is a different kind of reminder. A reminder that Cas is here, with him, right now; that they’re both alive and kicking, give or take a bum knee. They haven’t lost each other yet.

Or: Dean is injured and has to sit out a hunt; sulks about it; eventually there is sex.
Notes: Written for the Destiel Smut Brigade Fall Challenge. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] buffenator for the super-efficient beta!

Title: Touched
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: NC-17
Warnings/contains: Angst
Word count: 4800
Summary: After the fight of 10.14, Cas goes to Dean's room and tends to his wounds.
Notes: My other fill for [livejournal.com profile] spn_masquerade (prompt here). Not beta-read; apologies for any mistakes.

Title: Love Burns Its Casualties
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: NC-17
Warnings/contains: Drug use
Word count: 5000
Summary: “So, you and Douche Me really had a bad breakup, huh?”
Dean regrets the words the second they’re out of his mouth, but Cas doesn’t give him an answer. Doesn’t correct him on the ‘douche’ thing, either.
There’s just the sound of his footsteps, and then a slice of light opening up in the black as he cracks the cabin door, catching the edges of his profile.
He turns to Dean and jerks his head. “Coming?”

Missing scene from 5.04 "The End". Dean and Cas share a joint; try to avoid thinking; fail.
Author's Notes: Written for a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] spn_masquerade: Endverse Cas smoking a joint and shotgunning with any version of Dean (although 2009!Dean would be especially delightful).
Unbetaed; apologies for any mistakes.
anactoria: (the fog)
So, I'm looking for betas again, this time for my [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang fic, which is due to be posted on the 28th October. As usual, I'm mostly looking for Ameri-picking and someone to keep an eye out for character voice, though obviously pointing out any glaring plotholes would also be appreciated. ;) It's about 25k at the moment, and will probably get a bit longer in edits. Summary below the cut, in case anybody's interested. Eternal gratitude will be yours!

Word count: 4000
Summary: It's the Fourth of July, and the sky is dark.
Author's Notes: A month too late to be seasonal, but hey.

Title: I Can Tell You How It Ends
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Benny, Sam, Cas, Andrea, OCs.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Period-typical racism.
Word count: 64,000
Summary: Sent back in time to 1959 to retrieve a magical key, Dean runs into a pre-Andrea Benny, and narrowly avoids killing him. Now he’s stuck playing nurse to an injured vampire and trying to unfuck a timeline he shouldn’t even be in yet. How much more complicated could things get?

Read it: here on AO3.

This is the Dean/Benny Big Bang story I've been working on for the past six months or so, and which a few people here kindly expressed interest in. The amazing art is by hisroyalhellishness over on Tumblr, and the full-size versions can be found here. [livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight and [livejournal.com profile] viviansface kindly betaed this for me, and I couldn't have done it without all their help. Thanks so much. ♥ ♥

Title: Give Me That Old-Fashioned Morphine
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas
Rating: R
Warnings: Mentions of Dean’s drinking problem; violent thoughts; spoilers through 10.13.
Word count: 5500
Summary: Cas tries to help Dean deal with the Mark of Cain. Problem is, Dean's doing the opposite of dealing.
Author's Notes: Squeaking in under the wire, and will no doubt be thoroughly Jossed by the end of the evening.
This started life as a response to a prompt on the [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time comment meme, but devolved into a mess of feelings about the last few episodes somewhere along the way.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jj1564 for the super-efficient beta. :)

Title: Unfurl, Like A Wing In A Thermal
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas, Sam, Crowley, OCs.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Word count: 20,000
Summary: After a run-in with a rogue Woman of Letters, Castiel finds himself with visible wings.
Being injured in the aftermath of the encounter and stuck on lockdown in the bunker is bad enough, but between attacking zombies, cultlike followers, and his tentative relationship with Dean, he soon finds that his injuries are the least of his worries.
Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, for [livejournal.com profile] jennilah's adorable art piece, Need. Unfortunately I made a bit of a cock-up which I didn't figure out until it was too late to alter, so that in the scene based on the art, Cas isn't actually wearing his coat. But I hope I've managed to be faithful to the spirit of the piece, if not the detail.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jj1564 and [livejournal.com profile] dljensengirl88 for being superhero last-minute betas -- and to [livejournal.com profile] jennilah for being so encouraging, and just generally a delight to work with. ♥
This takes place sometime after 10.05, but isn't 10.09-compliant -- so no Claire, and no killing spree!Dean.
