Summary: Family reunions are a time of fun and good eating, or so Dean thinks. He plans on making this year's reunion the best one yet, and he even got Sam to stop bitching long enough to drive back home and help. Sure, Cas is acting a little weird – donning the old trench coat like a lame ass caped crusader – but there's nothing wrong between the two of the. Ever. So don't even start. Sam, on the other hand, isn't feeling quite so content. He's dealing with a concussion or an out of body experience or something, because everything around him just feels wrong, from the tie around his neck to the shocking presence of Jess in his life. His confusion is only heightened by increasingly cryptic texts from a contact he's saved as 'Loki' – a contact that he doesn't remember making. Loki seems to hold all the answers, including the answer to one disturbing question Sam can't quite let go of—why does he think most of their family and friends should be long dead and buried? Dean's belligerently happy. Sam's genuinely confused. But to everyone else, life is just perfect. Maybe a little too perfect.

Artist: mangacrack
Genre: Slash
Pairings: Sam/Gabriel
Warnings: Bit of angst, mentions of past abuse (in the form of verbal/neglect), heavily implied male/male sexual acts, artistic license used with regards to character traits (:D), complete disrespect for SPN canon?
Rating: R
Word Count: 11,465
Summary: Seven years ago, Sam Winchester ran away from his only family, and was found by one of the very things he had been brought up to hate and hunt. Instead of following instinct and killing (or trying to) the trickster, Sam became its apprentice.

Rating: R
Word Count: 49,000+
Summary: Hello, all you mere mortals! Gabriel here. I'm told you need a summary for this little story. Of course, I don't see why. The title isn't a description enough? If you really need more than that, this is the story of how the completely awesome and practically all-powerful Trickster/pagan god/Archangel saved humanity with some help from the most ragtag bunch of creatures in the universe. No, really. Okay, so maybe they did more than give a little help. But it was all my idea so the credit is mine.

After being molested, Sam and Dean flee to Bobby in hopes that he's not affected and he can help. Gabriel realizes the spell has gone horribly wrong when people are now getting rough when they try to get to Sam to 'love' them and are using more forceful methods; Sam has already been molested and is genuinely scare that someone under the spell will attack, hurt or rape him.

Thirteen years later, Gabriel is a pediatrician at New York General, the same hospital where Sam works as the legal counsel. Neither knows that the other has carried a torch for them for the better portion of those thirteen years, but just about everyone else and their dog is no stranger to the fact. Having had enough, Sam's older brother Dean, and Gabriel's younger brother, Castiel, concoct a plan to force the two to admit their feelings for each other – or move on with moving on – and are joined in their mission by a wide array of characters from across the series.

Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 23,075
Summary: Sam has always believed in angels and nothing anyone said has ever convinced him otherwise. Dean has always wondered how his brother could be so sure, to speak as though he knew beyond a doubt that there are good forces in the world, that angels do exist especially with all the crap that they've dealt with on a daily basis. Maybe it has something to do with that fact that Sam has a guardian angel he never told anyone about?

Artist: xandrium
Genre: AU
Pairing (if applicable): Sam/Gabriel, Dean/Castiel
Rating: R
Warnings: Implications of abuse,
Tier/Word Count: Tier 1 / 5025 words
Summary: In the not-so-far-off future, instead of selling kidneys people sell brains. The more knowledge held, the more expensive the brain. People undergoing the operation after having their brain sold have a small chance of survival. When your brain is sold you live as a vegetable, or you lose everything you've ever known.

This semester, the Host has graciously allowed a few musicians from the public high school to join them; that’s where Sam Winchester comes in.

Tier/Word Count: Higher Tier / 29,578
Summary: Sam is an up-and-coming young man within the legal profession, with a good job and prospects in an international firm. He’s sensible and level-headed, and as such when he shared a drunken moment with the janitor of their office, it throws him. He would have gotten over it, probably, if said janitor hadn’t then told him he was pregnant. Sam’s life quickly descends into chaos as he tries to work out if he really has knocked-up a gold-digger, or if things aren’t really as bad as all that.

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Some graphic descriptions of violence
Tier/Word Count: 2nd Tier/ 21, 522 words
Summary: The sensation that someone or something is following you isn't one that most relish. Even for the seasoned hunters that are the Winchesters and Castiel, it isn't a welcome feeling. It's how people end up like Frank Devereaux. And no one wants to end up like Frank Devereaux; at least, not among the three of them. When Sam takes matters into his own hands to shed light on their otherworldly stalker, however, he finds a bit more than he bargained for. And something else too. They say big blessings come in small packages, and with the lingering fear of something at their backs, this is one big blessing in one small package that may just be able to help.

Artist: wispchild
Genre: AU, fluff, kid!fic

After living with Sam's brother for a year, Sam decides to get a fresh start in his life and start moving on from the terrible loss. He moves into an apartment in the heart of the city that only has one real blessing about it: the bakery across the street. The coffee there is the best Sam's ever tasted and the pastries are absolutely to die for. Best of all, it's owned by two brothers, Gabriel and Castiel Novak, and Leigh is immediately smitten with them. The brothers are equally taken by her and they soon become Sam's closest friends. They help him raise Leigh and, at the same time, get his life back on track. Along the way, Sam finds himself drawn particularly to Gabriel, who's crude, loud, obnoxious, and nothing like what he's usually attracted to.

Artist: viviantanner
Genre: slash (but very mild slash)
Pairing (if applicable): Castiel/Dean, Sam/Gabriel
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: some cursing and dirty jokes.
Author's Notes: This story came out of the season 5 mid-season hiatus, so it breaks off after episode 5.10. Therefore, no Kali, no Chuck=God, and very different characteristics for the Horsemen. Thanks to greenygal for an excellent and very last-minute beta.
Tier/Word Count: 2nd tier, 23710 words
Summary: Castiel finds God. This doesn't solve the Apocalypse, but does bring Dean and Sam new tools to fight with -- to wit, an entire garrison and their soon-to-hatch eggs and a Word of God, which not even archangels can resist for long. Figuring out how to use these new tools and in what ways is Sam's new problem, and Gabriel isn't exactly helpful.


Title: Apraxia Only Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
Author: eneumann
Artist: pipariperho
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, I guess?
Pairing (if applicable): Sam/Gabriel
Rating: R/NC-17 for one graphic sex scene
Warnings: Badly written male male sex, military ptsd stuff that's badly portrayed, brain injuries (probably inaccurately portrayed but I did the best I could).
Tier/Word Count: Tier 2, ~17,200
Summary: What happens when your one night stand that you're sort of in love with comes back from Iraq with a life altering injury?

Pairing (if applicable): Gabriel/Sam, background Castiel/Dean.
Rating: Mature.
Warnings: Slight PTSD. Hints (without details) at intersexual characteristics.
Tier/Word Count: 10500.
Summary: Timestamp to my fantasy AU March-Stalkers Mighty, but should be readable independently. There is a longer summary at the fic for those who haven’t read the larger verse, with a little more information about the world and what’s happened to these characters previously. Out in the wide world beyond the known lands, a very long way from home, Castiel, Gabriel, and Sam have come up with a partial solution to the curse that had been placed on Sam. Now, Sam returns to consciousness, human-shaped again after a month on four feet, with Gabriel at his bedside. Gabriel’s fumbling attempts to soothe the pain of transformation tumble them hard and fast towards emotions and vulnerabilities that neither is ready to deal with.

Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Male/Male sex and profanity.
Tier/Word Count: Tier 2 / 16,711 words
Summary: Gabriel believes that Sam hasn't had enough of him so he is planning on sticking around a little longer. Hell, they might even be the best thing that could ever happen. This is loosely based off of what I consider is the perfect song for this pairing, Haven't Had Enough by Marianas Trench.


Title:So We Might Live Anew
Author:devyn_rose
Artist:chelseawendland
Genre:slash, are faeries a genre?, canon change

Warnings:brief (temporary) major character death of the SPN sort. attempted disembowelment. implied eating of human beings by non-human creatures. really nothing worse than the show can be.
Author's Notes:Most of the faerie info in here is from actual faerie folklore, you can look it up and everything (I recommend this as a jumping off point if you want to look into the subject, they have great articles on lots of things that pertain to mythology/folklore). Anything not in traditional lore was changed for the purposes of the story. Also, a thank you to my lovely beta, Haley, my one-person support team!
Tier/Word Count:Tier 1/~10,500 words

It's the end of the world and, in addition to Lucifer, Sam has to worry about faeries of all things coming after him. But these faeries are a far cry from Tinkerbell, and they have a plan for both him and Gabriel. If they can get them. (I just really needed some faerie fic, ok?)

Summary: How many people were aware angels got sick? Not the Winchesters that's for damned sure, and for one of them in particualr; Sam, it's one hell of a ride. Mind you, it isn't all chicken soup and good times, one has to be careful around a sick angel. One never knows what could happen, from babies to "babies". If you're not careful, you can knock an angel up when they're sick. No one is complaining though, especially not Clint Eastwood. I mean, God.

But by the end, countless hours and candy bars and one purple beanbag chair later, Sam is glad he chose to help the archangel.

With a big-ass ritual and a sprinkle of I do believe in archangels, I do, I do!, he manages to bring Gabriel - and by extension, the Norse god Loki - back to the land of the living. His chance to get his brother back may just lie in accessing a pagan side-door to purgatory - though of course, this is Sam Winchester we’re talking about here, and God forbid the universe make anything simple for him…
