The Best Fanfiction I Know

This is a (very) late birthday gift for my best friend Aims: kenzistilinski. This is a list of all my current favorite fanfictions from the Supernatural, mainly Destiel, fandom. All except I Was Afraid When I Met You which is Sam/Castiel and also uniquely includes Castiel as an asexual main.

All of these stories are very unique and brilliantly written. I love them all very much. What I love even more is that they are nice, long, and almost all complete. So go check them out and enjoy! Leave these great authors some kudos!

*RUSHES INTO THE ROOM AND FRANTICALLY BEGINS TO FLAIL MY ARMS* (For the Anon the other day who asked for more long Sastiel fics) I have found yet another beautiful one for you my dear!

I Was Afraid When I Met You by APenToMyHeadandImDead (44,400+, M)

Summary: Sam, a second year pre-Law student at Stanford, meets a strange but interesting guy at ‘Party Man’ Gabriel’s house party, and decides he wants to get to know him more. Castiel is a Media & Film studies major whose passion for movies is nearly overwhelming. They’re an unlikely pair with an unlikely relationship. After revealing something he’s kept hidden from Sam, Castiel has a deep fear of rejection but Sam is determined to make it work.

What is your favorite fic you have ever written?
it’s like making me choose my favorite child. oh god.

okay… so i’m gonna give two answers because i quit writing for about seven years. so one fic from before and one fic from after.

Ministering Angel… a one shot Brokeback Mountain fic.

Photography… an AU sastiel that was a prompt from holydarkhallelujah. It’s not my best work, by far, but I really love it so much. I’m very emotionally attached to it.

How many fic ideas are you nurturing right now?
about four… 

Do you prefer to write canon or AU?
i prefer to write canon or canon based au… it’s just less work.

Is there a trope you haven’t tried that you really want to?
i was thinking of venturing into A/B/O maybe…. it used to really squick me out, but I’ve grown fond of it.

What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever received?
know where the story is going before you ever start writing. i used to just write without a plan, and i have so many unfinished fics in notebooks because i didn’t know where to go.

If you could choose one of your fics to be filmed, which one would it be?
I think The Ballet Dancer series “Danseur” and “Pas de Deux” because I would love to see college age Sam Winchester doing ballet…. gosh, I should really write more of those.

Who is your favorite character to write besides Team Free Will?
Benny! Omg, I’m so in love with my first fic writing him. I’m very proud of Laissez les bon temps rouler.

Do you use notes, outlines, or worksheets?
for prompt fics, all i need is the prompt. they are short stories. i use an outline (and sometimes notes for continuity) if i’m writing a longer fic.

Do you write from start to finish or write the scenes out of order?
start to finish. only a few times have i written out of order just because i had a perfect idea for a scene and wanted to get it down before i lost it.

If you could write a sequel to any fic out there, not written by yourself, what fic would it be?
well, not a sequel… but i did get permission to write a tag to posingasme’s Too Much and Not Enough. i’m really excited about that.

Talk about a comment or review that made your day.
a set of reviews, actually…. posingasme left a string of happy and excited comments on my fic Mister Grace and the School Dance as she was reading. So I got notifications every few minutes or so and it amused me and made me happy.
