For Fanfic Writer Appreciation Day, here are my top 10 fics that are still available on AO3. There are a couple favs that have been since taken down (Lost Souls by lastknownwriter I believe is down for publication? That would have definitely made the list!) so I’m only adding ones you can go read RIGHT NOW! MAKE SURE TO LEAVE COMMENTS on all your favorite fic today!!!!
(In absolutely no order, because narrowing down to 10 was hard enough.) (Well fuck, there’s 11. Oh well!)
Apres (canon) thevioletcaptain - The angels fall. Cas lands in France. Dean comes to get him. The fluffiest fluff to ever have fluffed, WHILE being amazingly in character. Not easy to do. If you held a gun to my head and made me pick top 3, this would be there. (If you made me pick #1 I’d probably die tbh.)
Clean Air (au) anactorya - Holy shit. This is a BOOK. It’s based off a book I haven’t read (but now want to) so don’t let that stop you. It is completely self contained. Post apocalyptic (but not endverse) community lives in an underground silo. They are told they are the only humans left alive on an uninhabitable planet. Until Dean intercepts a radio signal from Cas, who is in another silo. Intrigue, world building, CB radio Destiel - UGH just go read it.
His Fucking Kids Verse (canon) subjecttochange8
- Emma lives, and Claire ends up with Dean & Cas (long before she showed back up in the show!). They retire from hunting to raise the two teens, who are complicated and surly and angsty and wonderful. I really can’t do this verse justice, it’s one of the best things you’ll read in this fandom so get to it.
Pie Without Plot (canon) apocalypse-patisserie & robotmango - Ok, it’s on every rec list ever, but there’s a reason for that. The boys take a break from hunting to run a bakery, for Reasons. AMAZING development for all three of them. Hilarious, heart wrenching, fluffy in-character awesomesauce. While you’re there, read all of Major & Orange’s back catalogs - you won’t be disappointed.
rvr ro11435 (au) @ferritin4
- Dean & Cas work for NASA (but not in space). The story is from Cas’s POV, and he is the SNARKIEST GRUMPIEST POTATO I LOVE HIM.
The Breath of All Things (au) @twentyonelizards - Dean was paralyzed in a car accident, and is full to the brim with self loathing, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Cas starts volunteering at the care home where Dean is living. Mind the tags, but it has a happy ending (without anyone “fixing” Dean’s disability because that would be gross). One of those fics that sticks with you.
The Story of You and Me (canon) the-diggler - Dean wakes up 2 years in the future, a journal in his handwriting telling him that he has frequent amnesia, he lives in Bobby’s renovated house with Sam & Cas, and oh yeah … him and Cas are a thing. Domestic adorableness with a twist. This fic will tear you apart and put you back together. HAPPY ENDING I promise, even through some angst.
What I Need (au)
- Dean is a surgical tech, and he’s just been assigned to the biggest asshole of a surgeon (Cas of course!). Enemies to lovers, hospital!Destiel, amazing banter and characterizations. SO much snark and sexual tension, omg!
Every Living Thing (canon) Askance - Wow. This is. Wow. Talk about sticking with you, you’ll never get this fic out of your head. It’s literally the end of the world. The boys try for a while to stop it, but have to concede that there is nothing more they can do. They hole up in an abandoned firehouse while the last Great Flood destroys the world. Angst, hurt/comfort, finding each other in the darkest times, there is great Sam development as well. AMBIGUOUS ENDING - you can read it as hopeful, or as MCD, so if that bothers you you should steer clear.
Every Man’s Got a Right (canon) MollyC - Endverse-not-really-endverse! I’ve seen a few fic with this premise, but this is my favorite. Instead of dying, Endverse!Cas gets sent back in time to the Wincheseters circa Season 2. We follow them as they go through the cases & plot points leading up to the apocalypse, with the added bonus of Endverse Cas along for the ride. I *devoured* this fic! This should have much more kudos than it does, but it was wrongly tagged MCD for a while.
Just More of the Same Verse (canon) outpastthemoat - This fic will make you ache. Cas falls, and is completely overwhelmed and nonfunctional. This is the long process of Cas & Dean figuring out who they each are now, and who & what they are together. This will pierce your very soul, but definitely in a good way. Hurt/comfort of the absolute best kind.
(Honorable Mention - Hands, From Which All Things Are Built (canon). Of the 5000 fic written between S8 & 9, this is arguably the best. Not making my “official” list because PWP is up there already, but this fic singlehandedly made texting!Destiel EVERYONE’S jam. You better not pass it up because it’s rated T. I will find you and I will end you.)
Mettaton is similar in spelling, cadence, and syllable to
“METATRON”, the Kabbalistic angel that sits at the right hand of god
in Jewish mysticism. This particular entity is often referred to as the
“recording angel”. One of the possible representations of Metatron in
Hebrew, when transliterated from ancient Greek is “MTT” (מטט).

“Come on, we’re finding you someone to…engage with sexually or whatever,” Dean explains, chancing another swig of beer before going on. “Anyone in this bar, no limits, who would you would be your top choice to bang?”
“Well, you, ideally.”
Dean spits out some beer before collapsing in on himself, legitimately choking this time. “Excuse me?!” —-
Or the one where Cas wants to have sex and Dean is there to help.
so if atem is from the 18th dynasty, 3000 years back from s0/duel monsters canon (5000 in the dub but who cares abt 4kids tbh), then uh???
the negative number represents the approximate year BC that the pharaoh lived, which would land him somewhere in the 21st-25th dynasties (they’re all combined), around the time of Psusennes I/Pasebkhanut I (Akheperre-Setepenamun) to Pharaoh Osorkon the Elder (Akheperre-Seteprene), a range of 1047 BC to 986 BC.
the latter of the two ruled for like 46 years so it was prob after him lmao,, ishizu it’s either you, or the archaeologists that found the puzzle (see: yugi’s grandpa) that’re wrong and honestly I trust ishizu more so
this would mean that the millennium items are actually anywhere from 3500-3300 years old,, not that anyone was wondering or anything ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Welcome to a very special edition of Compromised Logic! The series where I post my reactions to the complete and utter bullshit that NH/SS likes to spread around.
By reactions, I mean the random shit I scream at my computer in order to cope with the mental anguish caused by reading this nonsense.
You’re getting a bonus edition of CL this week because next week I’m visiting my boyfriend who lives in Miami, Florida. =)
I will have my laptop with me and I’ll still be responding to messages, (I just won’t have time to do really long posts like what part 6 is most likely going to be) so feel free to drop me a line or send me a suggestion for a future installment. =)
Warning: Under the cut is my own personal reactions which may contain cursing, bitching, ranting, and some real logic. You’ve been warned.
Okay so I'm getting really nervous because people keep talking about the twist possibly being John as the Big Bad and Johnlock not happening and I'm so worried that the show (what we know and love as the show) is going to be ruined and ughhhhhhh. Sorry I keep turning to you for reassurance, you're just really comforting through all this.
It’s fine, Lovely!
This is just my shitty opinion, but the “John as a baddie” just NARRATIVELY does not make a lick of sense in this series to me. This is NOT the story Mofftiss is telling.
Because you know, John grieved for TWO WHOLE YEARS LIKE A WIDOWER because he just really missed his mortal enemy. Like, this is the biggest neon sign to me here. John was GENUINE in his grief. You CANNOT FAKE THAT SHIT BELIEVABLY FOR 2 SOLID YEARS. TRUST ME ON THIS. John is pretending fiercely he is “okay” when he’s around people and MORTALLY DEPRESSED when he’s alone. THIS IS WHAT GRIEVING PEOPLE DO.
And even if he could, what reason would John have for looking like absolute shit in MHR and TEH when he’s alone? If he was faking, the act would drop as soon as he was alone This is one of many flaws in the theory that stands out the most to me.
I’m not trying to be a dick, however aside from the ONE TIME in TGG that Moriarty forced John to make Sherlock believe John was Jim, there is literally no evidence in the series to support it.
I’m not saying that it isn’t a possibility, but the narrative supports canon Johnlock 5000% times more than “Evil John”.
