Dean/Cas fanfic WIPs you should all be reading

Just promoting some of the best WIP our fandom authors are updating currently. I know a lot of us won’t read WIP until they finish, because of fear they’ll get into a fic only for the author to abandon it, but please remember to support the authors as they update and encourage them to finish with Kudos and Comments! Remember, even if you don’t have an AO3 account, you can still leave kudos for works!

Out of the Deep by riseofthefallnone

seriosuly, I can’t imagine anyone in the Destiel fandom isn’t reading this baby, but for those of you still on the fence, don’t be. Excellent writting, and AU with canon characterization, and regularly updated once a week. Guys, it has Mer!Cas in it! And he’s badass.

For a Horse With Wings by Kashoku

I really wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I have. The dynamic between Dean, who works for Cas caring for horses, and Cas, who’s a bit of an asshole because of legitimate reasons, is fresh and exciting to read. Its one of those ‘they start out disliking each other, but then everything between them changes’. The author also knows their stuff about horses and as a read who knows nothing about the sport, makes it really interesting to read.Very well-written with less kudos than it deserves. Show this one some love, friends!

Light In the Dark by nurfherder

I have such a love/hate relationship with this one. I love it, but then the author makes me want to hate her for ripping out my soul on a chapter to chapter basis. This is another one where Dean and Cas don’t get off on the best foot, but of course, our lovely idiots starts slowly working things out between them. Again, broken!Cas and broken!Dean, excellent writing and characterization, and updates frequently enough I haven’t yet had to sell my soul. Beware, this one’s a life ender, but there’s a sense it’ll work out for them in the end. oh wait the latest update ripped my soul out nevermind that last part.

Once Upon a Wendigo by Somethingintheperiphery

There are too few (if any) fics where Dean is sole guardian for a really (kindergarden age) Sam, and this fic makes me wonder why we don’t see more AUs like this. Very cute, lovely written. I just love teacher!Cas in this one and Dean’s relationship with Sam is one of the best I’ve read.

Cooking With Gas by WinJennster

You know how some fics give you tingly, happy feelings when you read them? This is one of them. One of my fave Destiel AU types is where Dean and Cas start out on the wrong foot, but then we get to see how Dean/Cas is inevitable as they’re drawn together anyway. Probably my current happy fic that’s updating, but I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. A shoe ladden with angst, no doubt. *shakes fist at WinJennster* But, I get a sense whatever may happen, they boys will get their shit together for the happy fade out. And isn’t that what we all want? Updates very regularly, two or three times a week sometimes!

Carry On by TamrynEradani

Guys, read this. I’m not even shitting with you. You should open the tab, read all the way to the last update, then come back and thank me. Not joking when I say this is currently my fic to end all others. Its a dom/sub relationship done right. It’s not just about pain and dominance, not at all! Its comfort, and caring, and emotionally hurting, and has expanded what I always mistakenly assumed a dom/sub relationship was.Fantastic writing that makes you ache for Dean and Cas both, with very frequent updates. Read what’s available, hit that subscribe button, and bask in a fic that comes along once a season. It’s that damn good.

Kind of a Forever Deal by pop-pop-bananas

A high school AU set during the weeks of summer camp with angst and friendship and first love and angst and first times and love and angst and feel good angst. Yeah, its one of those. But really, its lovely and following the evolution of Dean and Cas’ relationship, is just a wonderfully complex ride. This is the fic I most want to huggle.

Exonerated by couchcarrot

This fic will probably be what’s the eventual cause of my death. Its not all rainbows and fluff is what I’m saying. But as someone who avoids angst fics that have angst for angst’s sake, there’s none of that here. Oh yeah, its gonna kill you. Don’t get me wrong. But the storyline and plot as well as the Dean/Cas relationship is what drives it forward. I really, really want to find out how it ends. And Dean and Cas making it through okay will be the bonus. I fear a fandom riot otherwise. 

And that’s the list so far. I’ve left out fics that haven’t been updated in over a month and ones that are only a couple chapters in but show promise. Read, comment, or just leave kudos. These authors are helping us survive the Hellatus til season 9 so the least we can do is send our love.

A Twist in the Myth: Sereclilpse

“Um, I’m Daniel. Daniel Jackson,” the gunless man said after a few seconds, gesturing to his other teammates as he said their names. “This is Colonel Jack O’Neill,” - the graying-haired man - “Major Samantha Carter,” - the only female - “and Teal’c.” - the huge black male in the back - “Could we… talk for a second? We’re not here to hurt you, or anyone else. We’re just explorers.”

“Not much is known about our history prior to some 1000 years ago,” Kashoku began, “Then our cities were large and heavily influenced by machina; powerful machines. However, machina caused several feuds between our peoples. Our two largest cities, Zanarkand and Bevelle, declared a machina war on one another. It was a humiliating defeat for Zanarkand but worse things came from it than defeat…”

Into the Hollow

by Kashoku

Dean lost everything in the fire. His parents, his home, his horses. He wants nothing to do with horses anymore, but when Bobby approaches him with an opportunity to be a groom for one of the top Eventers in the US, he can’t refuse. Castiel Novak seems like the epitomy of every English-riding douchebag out there at first, but the more Dean sticks around, the more he realizes that Castiel is exactly what he needs.

‘A twist in the myth’ is very dear to my friend Kashoku, much like how Keverynn is very dear to mine. I thought I would draw the lovely ladies of Sereclipse as members of the Sisterhood of Sword and Sorcery.

Kage is a fire element Warrior with Kashoku as an earth element Sorceress. I thought about putting her on the Master path (equal amounts of magic and fighting skills), but Kashy seems to like purple.

Dean knew what Castiel was asking. Ever since they had started being intimate with one another the angel craved touch and closeness.

by Kashoku

It’s Christmas Eve at the Winchester House and everyone but Dean seems to be enjoying themselves. Local Toymaker Chuck Shurley arrives at their home late that night to offer up gifts to Sam and Jo with a special something for Dean; a Nutcracker. Dean is initially insulted to be given a doll, but when Chuck tells him the story of how Castiel used to be one of God’s angels before being cursed by the King of the Crossroads, Dean finds himself entranced.

20. My greatest weakness - the easy option. I take it a lot more than I’m supposed to. My greatest strength… my charisma? I’ve talked my way out of a lot of detentions and tellings-off. I think it’s a good skill to have..

64. My best friend is currently: I have several. Right now most are in Wolverhampton, and one is in the shower in my house because i love her and she writes me lornefic and she is brilliant abby stop be cool okay-

90. I am surrounded by mummies!: I would stand up, politely push my way through them (‘Excuse me, 'scuse, pardon me, sorry, excuse me..’) and get out of the room, then shut them in behind me and hold onto the door until the sun came up and they turned to ash. Wait, perhaps I’m getting my mythology confused. Eh, either way, that’s how it’d go down.

50. I do believe in magic, but I couldn’t logically say how, why, or where. But I live too much in a fictional world to dismiss it entirely.

28. My biggest what-if?: What if I lost the use of my right hand and couldn’t draw? What if I suddenly couldn’t write anymore? I would actually die. I’m deadly serious.

32. Worst place ever: Dudley. *high-fives Beth* Up high, boom!

72. With one month left to live, I would tell everyone because I am a huge drama queen and then they, and I, could get closure. With my remaining days I would write non-stop. Perhaps paint some, but not if I felt I was using up valuable writing time. I wouldn’t be afraid, I think, just angry.

84. A saying I say a lot?: “Guess what?” “…” “Guess what?!” “What, Abby?” “Batman!” “Abby if you say that once more I swear I will punch you.” Basically this conversation happens more times than i would like to admit. “Guess what? Batman!” is my default conversation-filler. It’s terribly annoying to all my friends :D

100. Favourite five blogs on tumblr: Okay, so I enlisted tumblr crushes’ input on this one, because I can’t remember everyone on here…

and there are a bunch others that I love who switch places with these people often in rotation but just know if I talk to you on here or like or reblog you, then I love you, and you’re one of my favorites. 

Sorry, followers, if you never wanted to know this much about me >.>
