so i hear you like writing fic recs... have any good creature!dean or creature!cas fics to recommend? bonus points if they're more unusual creatures.
Hmm…so these’ll mostly be creature!Cas, I think…note that I didn’t include fics with Angel Dean or Cas, or fics with Demon Dean or Cas, since that’s, like, canon-adjacent.
For starters, my universal suggestion for creature fics is always, always Miss_Lv. She writes amazing creature fics, I’ve read nearly all of them, even the ones that’d usually squick me. For this list, I’d particularly recommend:
(HEED THE TAGS ON ALL OF THESE, there’s a lot of underage and non-con in her stories)
Angelum Meum (Explicit, 22,704 words. Rape/Non-con). “Dean is forced to breed by monster Castiel.But it’s not that simple.” (Creature Cas)
Arranged: (Explicit, 19,470 words) A/B/O. Omega Dean is in an arranged marriage with alpha Castiel’s son. The connection between Dean and his new father in law comes as a surprise… (Creature Cas)
Enticement: (Explicit, 10,400 words, Underage, Rape/Non-Con).
“Sixteen-year-old Dean has a monster under his bed. Just as he’s slipping off to dreamland tentacles slither up all around him…” (Creature Cas)
Pretty Boy: (Explicit, 26,049 words, Underage). This one is hard to describe, so I’ll just c&p her blurb: “They left town the day after and Dean never knew how to feel about that librarian.Then or ten years later, Dean didn’t know if it had been a horrible molestation that led him down the path of depravity to self-medicate or if it had been a glorious awakening that let him become who he really was.It depended on the day mostly.” (Creature Cas)
Secret Garden: (Explicit, 6,674 words) Castiel is a gardener. Dean is…well…Dean’s his favorite plant. (Creature Dean)
Splice: (Explicit, 15,546 words, graphic depictions of violence): “Horror movie Splice AU with Dean as the scientist who creates the creature hybrid Castiel.” (Creature Cas)
OKAY! On to works by other authors:
Dreameater by Naoe is probably my favorite creature Cas fic. Cas is a bird demon. (Mature, 64,413 words, graphic depictions of violence). “Dean has always had the Winchester Luck, which was never very good to begin with. But one day, while helping Bobby clear out his attic, he unleashes a Japanese creature called a baku and a curse on himself. With the help of his bird-buddy Castiel and his fox-friend Gabriel, Dean has to either recapture or kill the baku before she strips dreams from humanity and unleashes Japanese chaos.” (Creature Cas)
A Beginners Guide to Communing with the Deadby suspiciousflashlight. (Mature, 77,159 words, iirc no archive warnings apply but it’s not tagged). “Maybe it’s the little girl whose disappearance turned into a murder, and whose murder turned into a cold case, and who has now apparently decided to move in with him. Maybe it’s the unacceptable hole left in his life when his dumb best friend and partner in (the prevention of) crime decided to go and get himself killed. Maybe it’s his brother, whose high-profile career and fantastic girlfriend and first-child-on-the-way are steadily leaving Dean in the dust. Pick one. Pick all of them. The why doesn’t matter so much as the what, and the what is this: Dean is pretty sure he’s going completely, certifiably insane. Sure, he hasn’t started wearing all his clothes inside out, and he still showers on a regular basis (anyways, that’s not crazy, just a little eccentric); but there’s no getting around the fact that he just threw away his life, his career, and his reputation by dragging out his mom’s old necromancy book and summoning a Class A Forbidden Entity to his attic. A cranky one, too. With horrendous bed-head.” (Creature Cas)
Till Human Voices Wake Us by saltandbyrne. (Explicit, 20,634 words). “In a world of hippogriffs, hydras and flying pygmy elephants, intrepid explorer Dean Winchester was sure he had seen it all. When a monster destroys the only home he’s ever known, Dean finds himself falling for his strange rescuer and struggling to face his past.” (Creature Cas)
Skazka - A Woodland Fairytale by Angrysouffle. (Explicit, 17,786 words, graphic depictions of violence). “Satyr Dean’s seemingly idyllic existence of getting drunk and debauching virgins is chanllenged when he meets Dryad Cas. Friction and embarassing leaf munching ensues. Throw in a half-Demonling brother who is keen to look up tree sex in the lore and Cas’ suspiciously sexy sensing root, Dean is about to take phallic worship to a new level. Will this unlikely couple find their happily ever after?” (Creature Cas and Creature Dean)
Naga Dean ‘verse, by sillyblue and others. (multiple stories, the link is to the collection). Dean is a Naga; Cas is the angel to whom he’s arranged to be married. (Creature Dean)
The Siren and the Sea Monster by ltleflrt. (Explicit, 15,230 words). “When Cain moves to Washington State, Dean decides to follow him so that he can keep his job as Cain’s apprentice. The small town near the sea is Cain’s home town, and he has a small beach house that he rents to Dean for dirt cheap, with only a warning to beware of strange neighbors.” (Creature Cas)
Terms of Service by Misachan. (Explicit, 20,941, THERE IS UNTAGGED MCD IN THIS STORY). An AU based on the fairy tale “The Elves and the Shoemaker.” Creature Cas. Again, warning, MCD, I cried, this story is why I won’t read MCD.
Qualia by imogenbynight. (Mature, 26,600 words). “When Sam & Jess move into a smart home, Dean finds an unlikely match in the AI that keeps it running.” (Creature Cas)
…okay I feel like I’m missing a ton, but those are the first ones that spring to mind as being stuff I’d recommend for creature fics.
If other folks want to add recs, you know I’m here for that!! <3
Its because Yixing is the superior power that exists in a parallel universe omg. I just canttttt once i saw tht cute little kitten with the letter L i screamed and almost threw my phone. Honestly reminded of him holding the white puppy saying yo baby ~
At beginning of the Mv, we can see the guy narrating and blah, right? Then he corrects himself and says he’s in the “wrong universe”. Well, it catches my eye that every exo song has a different scenario and a name, for example, LMR has a number which means they’re # planet.
So according to this, we can say Power is the current planet they are in, all of them are fighting against the final enemy.
In the teaser, we see almost every members’ bulb lights up and why Baekhyun’s not? Because the machine couldn’t capture his. Because if you see the machine before spitting fire, it appears Chanyeol’s bulb so the machine is technically using exo members powers to fight against them, that’s why everyone is using nerfs.
First parallel world: Lucky
I think it’s called lucky because all of the members are there.
2nd parallel world: ot8
And here it comes the thing of the cat, 3rd parallel world: unfair/planet #1485:
The cat is only playing with 8 balls which mean Yixing’s could be lost. For me, Yixing isn’t the cat because I believe the cat has a superior role in the whole story. That’s why the cat is able to touch the button, I thought that all those planets are challenges that exo has to pass for them to have their powers back. Also I thought: what if that planet is called unfair because yixing isn’t there? It’s unfair for Baekhyun because their power depends on each other because they’re kinda a couple
4th parallel world: lmr/planet #1563 it calls my attention this is the only world with smoke. Remember in LMR Mv that Minseok was doing some experiment?
Besides smoke, we can see that all the members are out in the nature or running away, they’re running away from something but Yixing is the only one trapped. He was screwed since Exodus era, he wasn’t supposed to be free, he needed to stay. Xiuchen and Sekai are already together in the mv so the only ones that were alone were Junmyun, Baekhyun, Chanyeol and Kyungsoo but both Kyungsoo and Baekhyun were in similar areas.
So the thing is, is LMR the universe where everything went wrong? After LMR, we’ve Monster and Lucky one mvs. In Lucky One, we can appreciate how every member is under examinations, I believe Lucky One comes first and then Monster. In Lucky One mv just Yixing and Kyungsoo are the only in hospital gurney that are moving and when those girlies open the door is all black, it means they’re showing the universe. I noticed they already showed a glimpse of the eclipse in the mv.
To see the supposed eclipse we pass through Yixing’s eye first and then Chanyeo’s fire, it means Yixing was already lost. Baekhyun’s partner was gone already so he tried to balance himself with Chanyeol that’s why he’s next after Yixing also let’s remember Chanyeol lost his partner too, Kris. Then a few seconds later, Baekhyun and Chanyeol are running away together. Everyone is design to complement each other’s power.
Junmyun and Minseok: ice/water
Sehun and Jongdae: wind/thunder
Baekhyun and Chanyeol: light/fire
Baekhyun made the eclipse possible, he being Yixing’s partner he represents the moon and Chanyeol the sun. It forms an eclipse.
In Kaixing’s case, it’s not the same because in this mv, Kyungsoo can’t escape from those witches so Jongin partners up with Yixing when in reality, Kyungsoo is his partner. Also it seems, the pairings change depending on the universe because if we follow this theory, Sekai should be partners even in Lucky one mv.
After all of that, we can see Sechen and Xiuho go back together but not Kaixing so I guess Yixing got separated from Jongin.
Kyungsoo and Yixing were screwed in this world.
And Monster is, the final product of Minseok’s wrong experiment. In the mv, we can see Baekhyun is in the middle of the choreo but why? Because he has always being the main, the leader, the mastermind. Jongdae is walking normally because he knows how to defeat that stage the chanllenges I mentioned earlier, he could be a spy just like Baekhyun.
Baekhyun was alone in the messy table at the beggining because he was the one who infiltrated himself in the system to save his brothers, everyone in the mv has a role. It doesn’t matter if it’s about being a fighter or mastermind. Kyungsoo is sit on top of the camaras, he has always been watching, he was just watching and directing what people should do. He was behind with Baekhyun and that would explain why he is the only one that stayed behind in the maze in Lucky One.
But after that, Kyungsoo and Baekhyun lowkey fight along with their members because their presence is almost visible. Later, we can see all the members been beaten up by the enemy and there is where everything falls, Kyungsoo gets discovered and he’s punished. I don’t know if it’s just me but after the Kaixing high-five, everything seems fine: the members are free, Baekhyun appears and turns off the camaras. The high-five means they succeed, they won the war and Baekhyun’s infiltration was a success.
Now I want to mix Lose Control with this because it all seems to blend well.
Baekhyun saved all his members except his partner, Yixing so that’s why he ends up in the ocean. He’s in Yixing’s parallel world, if you see Lose Control mv you can see there is a lots of water.
In Lose Control, the mv literally starts with a shot of the ocean peacefully moving then we can see Yixing walking through a white room with paintings and then a girl shows up, she’s running away from him or he’s trying to catch her. What if she’s the Red Force? He’s trying to catch her, he’s trying to get his powers back. Yixing tries to escape but he couldn’t do it also in the Mv the moon appears a lot so we the moon is the main point. In the mv, we can see a corridor with multiple door so what if those are the doors for the other universes and that would explain why Yixing can’t open one of them, it’s the Power Universe.
Baekhyun falls into Yixing’s world and he’s there to save Yixing and give him his power back.
These are all assumptions and not really the theory so lol, they’re prob going to be some plot holes so :C sorry for the long as hell answer!
Last night I completed the final day of this 30 day “Abs Chanllenge” I was doing.
Sadly I don’t have a before picture, because honestly I didn’t expect anything to noticeably change, but I’m very happy with my results:
This was just after my workout on around the 25th day or so. Just after I’ve worked out they kind of “pop” and you can actually see them, but just generally unless I’m super super tensing they don’t really notice. I’m gonna keep doing to 30th day’s workout a couple times a week to maintain what I’ve gained, but I’m glad I’m finished now because it was really intense so I haven’t been able to work out my shoulders/arms as much as I’d like.
Here’s the challenge sheet with the exercises I did:
There were only a couple days I had to miss for various reasons, and I caught up both times with rest days / doing two days in one.
Anyway I’m really glad that I can say I managed the whole thing, and each evening doing a set work out as part of a challenge really helped lift my mood, especially with all the exam stress etc.
So yeah I’d really recommend this, just make sure you take a before photo :)
The blue whale game is a russian game that caused 150 deaths of russian teenagers, they contact you by facebook hacking into your phone and threathing you aboutkilling ypur family. It lasts 50 days, everyday a sickening chanllenge, the 25th day they give you the date you're going to kill yourself. IT'S EXTREMLY DANGEROUS. It started to happen in the US and in Colombia.
Okay guys, please pay attention to this!!!! I want all of you to stay safe, so please don’t do this challenge!
