I thought my SPN fic probably needed to go in its own post, so here we go. Organised vaguely by category below, chaptered fic at the top, newest to oldest otherwise.

** Right now, these links mostly go to my (friendslocked) LJ. I'll be fixing that when I get the time, but in the meantime, you can also find my fic on AO3. If you'd prefer to read on LJ, just drop me a comment here with your username and I'll friend you over there.**

Title: Burning Bright
Pairings: Crowley/Lilith, with ambiguous bits of Crowley/Dean and Crowley/Lucifer, but not really shippy for any of those things.
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~3100
Warnings/contains: Animal cruelty; minor character death; spoilers through 12x21.
Summary: “Can some people really talk to animals?” Fergus pipes up.
Mother looks up at him at last, and for a moment he can’t read the expression on her thin face. (
She’d be a bonny one, wi’ enough food.) Finally it resolves: unkind smile, sharp eyes.
“There’s only one thing you need to learn from
them,” she tells him, and nods down at the dead mouse. Its tiny guts have made a dark stain on the floor. “People like me and you? In situations like this, we’re never the cat. So don’t get caught, little mouse.”
Me: Hey, I finally have time to write! I should probably finish my rareshipcreationschallenge fic, or the next part of that fantasy AU!
My brain: LOL here's 3k of Crowley's thoughts on wildlife. You're welcome.
This is pretty rough, and unbetaed, but I wanted to put it out there before it gets Jossed.

[personal profile] spnspringfling is over for another year, so I can post my entry! This was for [personal profile] kribban, and the prompt I chose was 'mercy killing'.

Title: Salve Regina
Pairing: Dean/Nancy
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~2500
Warnings/contains: Canon-typical violence, canonical minor character death.
Summary: Post 3x12 AU. Nancy escaped the massacre in Monument, but there's no getting away from the things she's seen. When a supernatural murder reunites her with the Winchesters, she realizes she isn't the only one who's haunted.
Notes: Writing this was great fun, and gave me a new pairing to love. ♥ Thanks, as always, to [personal profile] frozen_delight for her wonderful beta help!

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 [ profile] deanwbigbang, and I was lucky enough to score [ profile] amberdreams as my artist! You can check out her stunning illustrations here.
Many thanks to [ 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.

Here's my contribution to this year's [ profile] spn_reversebang, written to accompany [ 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 [ profile] frozen_delight for all her beta help. :)

Born of Mortal Flesh banner

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

Fic Title: Born of Mortal Flesh
Author: [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] majestic_duxk for the super-efficient beta!

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 [ profile] tkodami, for the Nepal [ 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. ;)

Title: Soul Kitchen
Characters/pairing: Dean/Cas if you squint, in a not-much-more-than-canon way. Brief mentions of Jimmy/Amelia and Dean/Lisa
Rating: PG
Word count: 3100
Warnings/contains: Angst
Summary: Coda to 12x05. Humans say the kitchen is the heart of the home; and since home is Dean Winchester, Castiel figures they must be right.
Notes: I originally started writing this after watching 11x18 but it kind of dropped by the wayside. Then I watched last week's episode, and probably read far too much into Dean letting Sam do the cooking. ;)

Warnings: Spoilers for 12x03.
Summary: Coda to 12x03. Mary drives as far from Lebanon as she can get. On the seashore, she meets a friendly stranger.
Author's Notes: Squeaking in under the wire before this gets Jossed! Anyway, here's some wild speculation.

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 [ profile] frozen_delight, for the 2016 round of [ 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.

I know I'm a little behind the curve with this, but just in case anyone out there hasn't seen it. :)
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 [ 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 [ 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: [ profile] anactoria
Artist name: [ 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...

First of all, thank you so much for creating for me, and I hope you've found something to inspire you among my prompts! Please feel free to combine, interpret, or play with them as much as you like. :) I think I included a mixture of Sam & Dean and minor character prompts, and I'd be equally thrilled with either.

I love all four of the regulars, and don't want to read character bashing. (Crowley can be an antagonist or general pain in the arse, of course, but I'd rather not read a fic where it comes across that the author's attitude is 'Ugh, why are you still on the show?') That doesn't mean they can't be their complicated canon selves, and make mistakes and bad decisions and be racked with guilt over them, of course. ;)

Likes: In case the above didn't make it obvious, I love angst, happy ending or not. I also love casefics, especially with unusual monsters or backstories, hurt!Dean (comfort or no comfort), folklore and fairytales, found family, slice of life type things, canon divergences, and science fiction or fantasy AUs. For art, I like both comic book/manga and more realistic styles, and anything that plays with light in pretty ways. Pretty much any character not on the DNW list would be a welcome addition, and there are things I like about all seasons of the show, so any canon era is fine by me. :)

Dislikes: I'm not keen on mundane (i.e. coffee shop, high school, etc.) AUs, or anything with a heavy focus on pregnancy, babies, or small children, including de-ageing and fic that's all about Sam and Dean as kids. Photomanips that involve the actors' faces being photoshopped onto other bodies squick me hugely. I'm not a fan of Becky, Gordon, or the Campbells; I love Lucifer in his quietly-creepy S5 incarnation, but strongly dislike the later versions; and if you're going to include John, Mary, or Chuck, please don't make them parents of the year.

Thanks again for writing/arting for me, and I hope this helps -- and more importantly, I hope you have fun!

Title: in Troubled Regions
Author: [ profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Sam/Jody
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None
Word count: 2200
Summary: There's no such thing as normal when the world's busy ending again. But then, Sam and Jody both have head-starts when it comes to accepting that.
Notes: Written for [ profile] spnspringfling, for [ profile] killabeez' prompt, 'tornado warning'. Thanks to [ profile] caranfindel for the speedy beta!

Title: Back to the Garden
Author: [ profile] anactoria
Characters/pairing: Anna/Sam
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/contains: Major character death
Word count: 1400
Summary: Canon-divergent part-way though 5.13. Prompt: They both want the same thing: Sam taken apart, cancelled, for the sake of averting the apocalypse. When Sam approaches Anna to see if she can really do what she says she can, there's a real connection. But they both know what has to be done.
Notes: Fill for [ profile] spn_masquerade (original prompt here.)
