Masterlist: Fanfics, SPN Goodies, and sundry others

My catalog of fanfic is not extensive, but I feel the need to gather it and put it all in one place. I'm also planning to use this as a general index of some of the better bits and pieces that I've posted over the now several years that I've had this journal (hey, I'm a librarian, this is kinda my thing!). So, without further ado:

Riders on the Storm: My 2020 Summergen Fic

I wrote this for canonisrelative, who asked for some Eileen Leahy POV. Summergen is my absolute favorite fandom event, and the participants outdid themselves this year!

Summary: When the bright light broke through, a crack in the ceiling, a lighter flare in the darkness, she didn’t believe it at first. It was a trick, a cruel joke, made to raise hopes and then crush them again. But the light grew stronger, became tinged with purple and red, and she saw some of the prisoners around her grow still. Light spoilers for SPN Season 12 and 15.Collapse )

The End of the Road



I put this together to sort of put Supernatural in the context of my life--looking at it now, it feels a bit self-indulgent, but I'm going to post it, anyway. Forgive me.

The show took over my life and plunged me into the online community. It also sparked my creativity, made me start writing again, well over 20 years since I graduated from college with an English/Writing degree. It even kickstarted our Geek Out programs at my Library, and gave me and my husband some memorable con-going trips.

We are so lucky to have had it for so long. Even more, we are blessed with a cast--Jared, Jensen, Misha, of course, but everyone else, too--who have given us so much of their time and treated us with respect and kindness. In spite of my tears today (yes, actual tears), I can't wait to see what they all do next.

That's all I want to say, really. I'm sure this feeling will come around again with the final chapter--just as I'm sure the Winchesters and Family will kick it in the ass.

10 Day Celebrity Crush Challenge - Day 10

Post 10 celebrities you have been in love with (had a crush on). One per day. No comment, just a picture. Then ask a friend to take up the challenge. I challenge anyone who wants to play.



I'm guessing this is not a surprise!

Don't get me wrong--I love all of SPN's cast and most of their characters. Misha is amazing, kind, intelligent. Jared's very funny & quick, a great actor, and yes, handsome. I could list my admiration for all of the major cast members, one by one, both men and women.

But which one is still surprising me, moving me to tears or laughter even after multiple viewings of an episode, or hell, even a con video? Wins me over with his voice? Can buckle my knees with a new photo?

Who caused this reserved middle aged librarian to lose her cool completely the first time she got to do a photo op with him?

There's only one.

I've met him, in fact. Forgive me if I've told this story before. He was the guest speaker at the grand opening of our library's new building, six years ago. We were told by his people ahead of time to keep our distance, "no picture or autograph requests, please.". I was alone in the Reference office when our Foundation director brought him through on their way back from lunch. (It's sort of the back way to the admin area.). When he saw me, he stopped, and she introduced us. He said it was lovely to meet me. I stood up and said it was nice to meet him too, all the while seeing Leslie shooting me a look like she was afraid I was about to leap the counter between us to get closer. I settled for waving at him with both hands. Jazz hands.

Of course, he happily posed for pictures with staff later.

That evening at the packed reading he gave, every time he mentioned a different book, like Sandman or Americsn Gods, people would scream for it.

He's a true rock star author.

Speaking chronologically, he should have been #5. Oddly, not because of the boombox scene. It was a teen romantic comedy/road trip to meet a "Sure Thing" that did it. Still would follow him anywhere.
