Featured Author Sunday
Whoo! First part of the SPN Fanfic Appreciation challenge! I’ve thought long and hard about who I’d put on my list of fave writers, but even then narrowing it down to a top five was nearly impossible. I know a ton of fabulous writers in this fandom, but today I’m gonna focus on my absolute, one hundred percent faves.

What to read first: Your Eyes Look Like Coming Home
Why I love the author: Leesh was one of the first Destiel fic authors I found in this fandom all those years ago. I think the first fic I read was either Your Eyes Look Like Coming Home or Leave You Breathless, an amazing Cockles fic if that’s more your thing. Either way, any fic of Leesh’s is bound to be amazing because she puts a lot of care and thought into her words. I could recommend all of them, but that would take a thousand years because she’s written a boatload for this fandom already. She’s always my go-to when you need a good, fluffy fix on a bad day, especially if you’re a fan of mutual pining and happy endings.
What to read first: The Lonely Sea and Sky
Why I love the author: Emily’s fics are always a treasure to read. Her writing is poetic and her descriptions will transport you to another place, almost like you’re in the fic with the characters. She is a talented writer who also is not as well known as a few other writers, but is to not be overlooked. Her fics are beautiful and are always good to read when you’re looking for a bit of tooth-rotting fluff, but she can also bring out a good punch of angst, too. Really, I read The Lonely Sea and Sky at work and was trying not to cry at some parts because it was so wonderfully written! Check Emily out and discover her gold mine of fics.
What to read first: Flirting With Disaster
Why I love the author: Okay, I will be truthful, I’ve only ever read Flirting With Disaster from this author, but that one fic alone makes them a fave forever. The author’s writing is ugh, out of this world good. Their writing is not only fluffy, but it is funny too. Oftentimes, people try to be funny but aren’t. This writer is actually funny, and you find that in Flirting With Disaster. The comedy is on point and the characters are portrayed wonderfully. I can’t wait to read the rest of their Deancas fics :)

What to read first: Your Call Cannot Be Completed As Dialed
Why I love the author: Michaela is another author who I enjoy greatly. The fic I rec’d above is one of the best, most entertaining things I’ve read in this fandom. I never thought a fic told through a bunch of text messages would ever work, but she worked it out wonderfully and told a fantastic tale through that format. Along with that fic though, there are a ton of others that are just as beautiful. Her writing is unique and fun. Her words are fabulous and will leave you grinning ear to ear. Check out any of her AO3 fics for a good Deancas fix.

What to read first: The Shadows We Draw
Why I love the author: I first read a fic from Michelle last year when I claimed her DCBB fic, The Shadows We Draw. I fell in love with her writing style immediately, and the way she portrayed emotion and thrill in that fic was nothing less than amazing. What’s absurd though is how underappreciated Michelle’s fics are in this fandom. A lot of people don’t know her fics, which is unacceptable, because in my opinion, and not just because we’re good friends, she’s one of the best writers in this fandom. She writes fluff and angst and thrillers that will leave you on the edge of your seat, grasping for the next paragraph. Her fluff is adorable and will have you grinning, and her angst will leave you wanting to read on. Basically, just read everything on her AO3.
Ugh, I want to rec a ton more but alas, I’d be here forever. All of these people are amazing though, and reading their fantastic fics is always a pleasure.
