So I said to my brain: “Brain! What would we like to write today?” And then I gave it a list.
1. Deanna fic—lavinialavender
and I have a comm—deewinchester
—devoted to our interpretation of girl!Dean, and how societal pressures could shape “Deanna” to basically become “Dean.” We rely heavily on the fact that women die a lot in SPN, and Dean(na) would do ANYTHING to protect their little brother.
2. S5 fic—
because S6 starts tomorrow, and I’m not sure I want those influences cluttering up what I think now.
3. ORIGINAL fic—
because Mirai needs to give her brother some hurt/comfort, Kev has to deal with a dragon, and Haylan has to survive his mother one more day.
4. Apo-verse works-in-progress
So what do I end up doing?
I end up writing a completely new Apo-verse fic. Because (my brain promised me) “It will be short!”
Thousand+ words later, I think we have to have a talk about our differing definitions of short (and while I’m at it, maybe I should talk to someone about this habit I have of talking to myself).
Hope you enjoy. I think this is just a sign that the Apo-verse is alive and well and breeding plot bunnies in my skullTitle:
One More for the RoadDisclaimer:
If anyone owns anything in this relationship, Supernatural owns my
heart. And won't give it back. And won't pay me for it. (i.e. Don't own, don't profit) Though the AU twist is mine. If you want to jump in this crazy place with me, please do! There's plenty of room, the water's fine, and I enjoy company.
Sam, John, Dean, deer!Impala
This AU is a strange place, built on a joke and spiraling out of control. If you can't handle a post-Apocalyptic world with mutant African deer, and a gleeful disregard for the stodgy rules of logic, turn back now!
Just another town. Just another fight. Until it’s not.
Author notes #1:
This AU (I call it the Apo-verse) started
as a joke, but somehow it got out of hand. The Impala is currently an African deer and the world in general is post-Apocalyptic (nukes, biological weapons, the end of broadcast television). Other stories in this world, posted and in the works include: “Live by the Sword
”, "Two Men and an Impala" (currently a WIP), and "Dean vs. the Sex Traders" (also currently a WIP). Honestly, I’ve always wanted to write a “Sam leaves for Standford” fic, but never really thought I had anything valid to add. I’m still
not sure I have anything to add, but it’s the Apo-verse, so anything goes.Author note #2:
has excellently beta’d this fic. ( Sam knows the rhythm of their fights like he knows shotgun recoil and the sway of the Impala... )
