Mother's Day )
gwendolyngrace: (Wee! Winchesters)
Fic title: Fifty Percent
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] gwendolyngrace
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] sazzlette
Genre: (rps, wincest, het, gen) Gen / Het
Pairing: John/OFC
Rating: R
Word Count: 46,450, Posted in 5 1/2 parts
Warnings/Spoilers: (if applicable) Told in two eras: 2007 and 1989. The 2007 storyline is set between “Bad Day at Black Rock” and “Sin City”; the flashback sequence references “Something Wicked.”
Summary: While cleaning out John’s storage locker, Sam finds an envelope from his father addressed to someone from their past. Dean objects to delivering it, but Sam happens upon a hunt that takes them practically to her doorstep. Could they be demons released when the Gate opened? In 1989, shortly after the shtriga hunt, the Winchesters settle in small-town Ohio while John figures out whether or not he can keep hunting. Beverly Kirkland, the children’s librarian, meets the boys and their father. After a chance encounter with John, she reluctantly grows closer to him, all the while wondering what it is about the family that doesn’t quite add up….
Author’s Notes: So many things about this, but I don’t want to give stuff away. Right. Well, first off, I had this in my head long before “Supernatural: Rising Son” came out, and before I found out that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mary-Louise Parker were a couple (and then they broke up before I finished drafting this). The idea came up while I was writing Trost und Freude for a holiday exchange - but takes place *before* that in the Wee!chester timeline. I’m very grateful to [livejournal.com profile] sazzlette for her art of awesome (10 sketches, count'em OMG! - AND a music mix!), [livejournal.com profile] etakyma for her unfailing willingness to read what I’ve written and tell me how to fix it, [livejournal.com profile] july_july_july for her incredibly insightful beta-reading, and Wikipedia for lots of helpful information, ranging from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collectibles to the names of Kansas Governors to facts (and missing information) about our MOTW.

Genre: Gen, pre-series, Wee!Chesters, humour
Characters: Sam (age 3), John, Pastor Jim, Kurt (OIC - Original Imaginary Character)
Summary/Prompt: John’s first thought when Dean told him that Sam had an imaginary friend was... that's nice... his next thought was... Christ, I really hope it really is just imaginary. June 1986.
Warnings: Cuteness of the Wee!Sam variety.

Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] celtic_cookie
Request terms: Sam and Dean of course, and I love John: Lots of John! A Pre-series Christmas Story! Familial bonding, maybe a holiday-themed hunt?
Summary: Saginaw, Michigan, 1990: Going holiday shopping may hold more hazards than just the insane crowds and parents hell-bent on the buying the latest toy. John goes undercover to look into a series of accidents at the local mall. Meanwhile, Dean and Sam respond to Christmas-season festivities at school with unexpected results.

Author’s Notes: Done! Done, done, done! I think the only person who’s happier than I am is my beta of awesomesauce. (Seriously, gang, she did a little happy dance in her comments on the last chapter: “la, la, la,” I was told. But she still re-read this chapter about six times to fix all the things that were nagging at her.) So here it is, complete and DONE. Now I can concentrate on my Big Bang fic. Oy!

Oh, and a little warning: there’s an image in this file that may not be friendly to dial-up users. My undying gratitude to etakyma for the use of her digital camera. Please don’t overanalyze the handwriting! It’s not very good.

Author’s Notes: Sorry for the delay on this, but between travel and life…it just took a little longer than I hoped. However, Chapter 17 should be right behind this one to wrap up all the loose ends. This chapter has a little something for everyone, I think: a little angst, a little action, and a few moments you’ve been waiting for. My beta is amazing and patient, because she even re-read this after I'd made all her revisions....

Author’s Notes: So, if there were any doubt about this week’s “Monday Meta” over at wee_chesters, I hope that this chapter settles it: April Fool’s, gang. Not about this chapter—about that meta. No, I don’t really hate John. I try to portray him in a fair and balanced way. He’s far from perfect, but he did love Dean and Sam and he tried to bring them up the best way he could think to do. Which included some decidedly weird decisions. ;^D Also, I’ll be representing the anti-John side of the debate at EyeCon this weekend, so I have been needing to let my “John Hate” come out a little more than usual. But no, I really do generally like John, I just want to smack him occasionally. Luckily, I’m not alone, as Ellen and Bobby will prove during this chapter. Oh, and by the way? If the previous chapter was sparse before the beta got it? This one? Was almost pure dialogue. Yay for the beta, because she reminds me that in fictional narrative, stage directions and line readings are Good Things ™. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] etakyma!

[livejournal.com profile] etakyma keeps reminding me that this is not a dialogue-fic and therefore I do need to include physical descriptions during those long stretches of conversation. I'm not sure about the EyeCon finish line, with so much to do, but I'll try to keep it moving. The next chapter is short, though (well, it is currently, but I haven't got it back from the awesome beta of awesomeness, yet), so I may even be able to post it tomorrow. No promises, sorry!

We had tech week all last week and four shows in three days. So it’s been a little hectic. Thanks to everyone who responded to the poll – it helps to know that overall the fic seems to work and that most of you are pleasantly in the dark about what’s really going on.

Author’s Notes: So, this chapter grew a lot and then, thanks to my trusty and awesome beta [livejournal.com profile] etakyma, shrank back down so that you all didn’t have to slog through 5 pages of John gazing at his navel. Consequently it’s one of the shorter chapters. On the other hand, after so confidently stating in the notes for chapter seven that this would be 16 chapters…um…points up. Yeah. That’s the difference between where I hear the chapter breaks in my head and put them in on the paper and where they actually come out when I type in the long-hand draft. However, the good news is that the whole thing’s done, typed, and being shared with the betas as they have time, so nine and ten shouldn’t been so long a wait.

Summary: 1988; 1992; 1995; 2007; 2008
Wordcount: 8,890
Spoilers: General through all aired episodes, specifically Something Wicked, In My Time of Dying, Croatoan, Born Under a Bad Sign, All Hell Breaks Loose, Pt. 2, Malleus Malleficarum, and Jus in Bello.
Disclaimer: Still not mine. Dammit.
Author’s notes: This started as a little Something Wicked and Croatoan coda, and it sat around for a long time until I could come up with a fifth thing I liked. Last week’s episode shook loose the cobwebs. And thanks to the awesome betas, [livejournal.com profile] etakyma and [livejournal.com profile] relli86, I can post this in honor of Jensen Ackles’s birthday.

Five Times Dean Didn’t Do What Was Asked of Him )


Additional notes: In the episode (Something Wicked), Dean is playing AndoDunos. However, AndroDunos didn’t come out until 1992, three/four years after the incident is supposed to have taken place. (What’s more, it’s highly unlikely that a crappy motel in small-town Wisconsin would have even purchased a brand-new video game even when it did come out, making this continuity error as much as seven years out of date.) For the purposes of this story (and restoring the time continuum), I’ve decided that Dean’s flashback error is due to his own faulty memory, and really he was playing an arcade game that was available in 1988.

Request terms: Sam and Dean of course, and I love John: Lots of John! A Pre-series Christmas Story! Familial bonding, maybe a holiday-themed hunt?
Summary: Saginaw, Michigan, 1990: Going holiday shopping may hold more hazards than just the insane crowds and parents hell-bent on the buying the latest toy. John goes undercover to look into a series of accidents at the local mall. Meanwhile, Dean and Sam respond to Christmas-season festivities at school with unexpected results.
Rating: PG
Genre: Gen
Wordcount (this chapter): about 4,240
Spoilers: All three seasons through 3x08, may or may not be Origins-compliant
Disclaimer: No copyright infringement intended, not mine, just my fantasy.
Author’s Notes: As you may have guessed from the definitive /16 up there, the rough draft is complete and it’s just a matter of typing in the last two chapters, cleaning it up, and getting it to (and back from) the betas. Speaking of which, [livejournal.com profile] etakyma gets the nod for this chapter. Sorry it took so long, but she is the bestest beta anyone could have and I had to wait for her. She won’t let me post anything too embarrassing.

Then

Now: Dean assured him he’d be fine alone, and since he hadn’t lost his breakfast like his last three meals, John acquiesced and rushed to make his Macy’s shift at 9:00. )
