TIP: ‘The Future as B-Movie’ and ‘Bring Out Your Dead’
‘The Future as B-Movie' and 'Bring Out Your Dead' by twoskeletons
words: 2100 + 16886
tags: canon AU AU (altered endverse), cas!whump, dean!whump, apocalyptic scenario, angst, Worst road trip ever
pairings/characters: Dean Winchester, Castiel (a hint of preslash), Sam Winchester
authors summary: prompt: “There are still a few vampires out there, despite the rampant Apocalypse, and they’re still doing their thing. And yeah, angel blood—or former angel blood? Turns out it’s way tastier than regular ol’ human blood, especially with so many humans jacked up by this weird new virus. (The End ‘verse, maybe not all the way to 2014 yet, maybe Sam’s still around.)”
This future isn’t much better than that other one
'warning': no sex or anything; no major on screen character death, but definitely no happy ending…..
My note: OK, I just read that fiction(s - I count it as one). It’s great. The pacing’s just right, the downward spiral so subtle, the writing style’s awesome and it’s so fucking angsty. I love it. It hurts. It’s perfect!
Closer by clotpoleofthelord (plantainleaf)
tags: purgatory, canon violence, threesome, bottom!Dean, top!Dean, bottom!Cas, top!Benny,
pairings/characters: Benny Lafitte/Dean Winchester, Castiel/Benny Lafitte/Dean Winchester
authors summary: In Purgatory, it’s hard to hold on to your humanity. Dean isn’t sure how a vampire and an angel manage to keep him sane, but he’s not complaining.
My note: Everybody who follows this blog for a while longer probably knows by now I’m a sucker for dirty, animalistic, manly interpretations of our beloved characters. Especially in purgatory fics.
This is such a one.
The first part is a wonderful display of Dean’s search for Cas in purgatory and his dynamic with Benny, later on you can practically feel the weariness between Benny and Cas and everything ends in a well written, heated scene between the companions. It’s authentic, the pace is great, the writing is wonderful and you should read it.
pornTIP: Porn (A Blessing or) A Curse
(A Blessing or) A Curse by lovegonestale
tags: emotional manipulation, dubious consent, marathon sex, underage, first time, explicit, size kink, reborn human!Cas,
pairings/characters: Dean/Cas, Sam/Cas
authors summary: Prompt: “Dean and Sam find a fallen Castiel, about 10-15, and take him on the road with them. Dean and Sam can’t resist molesting him though and convince Castiel that he’s been cursed and it makes them need to fuck him constantly. Still naive to humans and a child Castiel believes them utterly and feels guilty for making the Winchesters needing to have sex with him all the time.”
warning: VERY dubious & underage
My note: Ok, this made me feel very dirty……. It’s definitely great smut, it’s awesome porn, but the circumstances…. you can’t call it non-con (no forcing, no violence), but the manipulation part makes it very, very dubious con. Well written though!
Three Minutes to Midnight
Three Minutes to Midnight by RackOnInNC
tags: missing scene 5.21, hurt!cas, hospital scenery
authors summary: In 5-21 “Two Minutes to Midnight” Castiel called Dean from the hospital. What happened before that?
My note: Pretty nice missing scene filler!
Love Is by vikki
tags: Cas!whump, violence, language, hurt/comfort, bamf!Cas, Cas POV
pairings/characters: Zachariah, Castiel, Dean
authors summary: Missing scene/coda for 5.04. Castiel retrieves the Impala; Zachariah is waiting for him.
My note: Short, but she’s got lovely metaphors and a good writing style.
Bratishka: Little Brother
Bratishka: Little Brother by Valyria
tags: Law Enforcement AU, Russian Mafia, Tattooed!Castiel, Cas!Whump, Implied/Referenced Torture, Hurt/Comfort, Kidnapping, Temporary Character Death, Blow Jobs, Michael Lucifer and Anna have russian names, world’s most unsexy shower, Happy Ending
pairings/characters: Detective!Dean/Lawyer!Castiel, lawyer student!Sam, Luzifer, Gabriel, detective!Bobby, detective!Charlie, Lieutenant!Gordon Walker, Captain!Ellen, Lawyer!Kevin, Lawyer!Bela, Raphael, Alastair
authors summary: Dean thinks he knows pretty much everything there is to know about his best friend Castiel Novak - he’s a smart, gorgeous DA who probably lets Dean get away with more than he should to see the bad guy locked up - but it turns out Cas is hiding some dark family secrets.
My note: The story’s pretty typical, the usual kidnapping-rescue-thing, but it was just so lovely written and the way the characters are portrayed just really got me.
Some Guys Have All The Luck
Some Guys Have All The Luck by strangeandcharm
tags: Hurt/Comfort, Cas!whump, grumpy!Cas, Season 5, pre-slash
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam, a wendigo
authors summary: A cave, a wendigo, an angel with no powers. What could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot, actually…
My note: It’s vaguely based on the dr. house finale episode in which a building collapsed and a women was stuck underneath.
Cas!whump in well-known strangeandcharm-style, light slash ensues.
Needle and Thread
Needle and Thread by Misachan
tags: Hurt/Comfort, Wingfic, Slash, Season 5, Cas!whump
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam (mentioned)
authors summary: The plan didn’t go exactly how Castiel thought it would. Hurt/Comfort wing!fic.
prompt: Castiel is injured in a fight and can’t heal himself right away, so Dean tries to patch him up the best he can. He’s never had to do first aid on wings, though…
My note: Well written, nice whump wing!fic.
Salvation ‘verse (‘In Darkness’ and ‘Blood And Fire’) by Darksilvercat
tags: Torture, Cas!whump, Early Season 4 fic, Aftermath of Torture
pairings/characters: Castiel, Dean, Sam (Dean/Cas preslash hints)
authors summary: In Darkness: Castiel has been captured by demons. Salvation comes in an unexpected form.
Blood And Fire: Castiel is safe, but he needs help.
My note: Short, but a pretty nice whump!fic.
Burn the Heart Out of You
Burn the Heart Out of You by Persephoneshadow
tags: Possessed Dean, Human!Cas, Cas!Whump, Dean!Whump, Canon-Typical Violence, Torture, non-con elements, bamf!cas, bamf!dean, bamf!sam, fluff elements
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam, Abaddon, Ezekiel, Alistair (freeform)
authors summary: A knight of hell can do a lot of terrifying things. Possessing Dean the day he’s reunited with Castiel is just the start.
My note: this possession!fic was SO not like the others - and that’s a damn good thing! Persephoneshadow brought in aspects and plot devices that the others just don’t, which I can’t reveal to you…. BUT it’s definitely worth a read!
