Title: A Touch of Providence
Author / Artist: jennytork and ramblin_rosie / reapertownusa
Summary: Sam, Dean, and their girlfriends decide to get a certain distinctive, protective tattoo to celebrate the boys' graduation from high school.

Title: A Twist of Fate
Author / Artist: zara_zee / coronasunrise
Summary: In late1864 John Winchester left his sons in the boarding house where they were staying and rode out of town, following yet another lead on the men who’d murdered his wife. Six months later he still hadn’t returned and his sons were declared abandoned children and taken into the custody of the Kansas City Poorhouse. Several twists of fate later the boys run away to New York City—and find themselves on a collision course with the Unholy Trinity; Azazel Se'irim, who runs a gang of youthful pick pockets; Gordon Walker, a violent armed robber who selects his apprentices from among Azazel’s boys; and Alastair von Damon who runs the notorious Hellfire Club. Will Dean and Sam’s free will, strength of character and the deep brotherly love they have for one another help them rise above their situation and find their father? Or will they be used, corrupted and destroyed by sinister men of evil?

Title: Better Off Dead
Author / Artist: quickreaver / becc_j
Summary: As much as Sam loathes the idea of returning to California, the boys get a call from Bobby, requesting they make a beeline to San Francisco; a hunter has gone missing. A hunter Dean knew quite well. Intimately, one might say.

The Winchesters discover there are witches, and then there are witches. Some claim to walk the White Path, but do they? Or is this just cover for infernal machinations?

Between a neo-hippie commune and the exotic temptations of Chinatown’s dark secrets, the Winchesters must untangle a spider’s web of magical allegiances, missing women, and eventually…a missing brother.

Title: Brand New Day
Author / Artist: acc812a / chosenfire28
Summary: When two people show up claiming to be John and Mary Winchester, Dean's convinced it's someone's evil trick but Sam thinks it just might be real. But before they can figure out how to deal with their suddenly resurrected 'parents', something starts killing pregnant women in Nevada.

Title: Built To Fall
Author / Artist: emmram / apieceofcake
Summary: An s4 + s5 AU. Dean Winchester is not resurrected four months after hisdeath; he is brought back to life by the angels to fulfil his destiny only after his brother is well on his way to fulfilling his. Ergo, he comes to life after Sam breaks the final seal and releases Lucifer into the world.

A confused Dean comes back to a world that seems drastically changed; to a guilt-ridden and half-crazy brother addicted to demon-blood; to angels; to mysterious beings demanding fantastical things of him in his dreams; to what seems to be his own guardian angel, Castiel, who hates his brother but seems loath to kill him.

Dean is horrified and dismayed at what his brother’s become, is dogged by relentless nightmares about Hell, and the people who populate his dreams and every waking moment, telling him it will all be over with a simple yes.

Sam’s got a secret that could end the war easily either way: in its destruction, or his own destruction. See, Lucifer has only one compatible vessel on Earth. Just one. But he can’t possess Sam without his consent; and so he nestles in the back of Sam’s mind, deep within the darkest crevices of his soul, egging him on, saying, we can end all of this. The world’s suffering, your brother’s suffering. All he had to do as say yes.

Will Dean, having lost faith in his brother and everything he believed was untouchable, be able to work with Sam again and stop the Apocalypse? Will Sam, broken as he is, be able to keep the devil at bay? And just who is that mysterious being, powerful enough to bend time and reality, who seems inexplicably on their side?

Title: Clatter and Keen
Author / Artist: 4422shini / kj_svala
Summary: Dean wakes up badly injured and concussed in a hospital with the last six weeks of his memories gone. Sam is missing, Dean has no recollection of where he is, or if he's even alive. Dean and Bobby must scramble to retrace Sam and Dean's steps through their last hunt in hopes to save Sam- or bury him. Set in the later half of Season 2.

Title: Country of the Heart
Author / Artist: ratherastory / naisica
Summary: After being hospitalized for meningitis, fifteen-year-old Sam finds himself put in a foster home while John is investigated for suspected abuse. Against all of Sam's expectations, his foster family turns out to be a caring couple with the kind of home Sam only ever saw from the outside while he was growing up, making him feel even more conflicted about the kind of life his own family leads. To make matters worse, John leaves town to go on a routine hunt in spite of his upcoming custody hearing, prompting Sam to wonder if his own father and brother might be relieved to have him —and his constant demands for normalcy— out of the picture. When his father goes missing, followed by Dean when he goes after him, Sam quickly discovers that they need him just as much as he needs them, and sets out to bring his family back together again, for good.

Title: Crusaders
Author / Artist: ramblin_rosie / spn_2008
Summary: Five men. Two angels. One demon. One last chance to stop the Apocalypse before it starts. Can one disaster serve as cover to prevent another, or will history repeat itself after all?

Title: Even Angels Fall
Author / Artist: jennylynneh / mizra
Summary: John was always meant to break the First Seal.

Sam was always meant to lead Azazel’s army, start the Apocalypse, and say “yes” in Denver.

Dean was always meant to be the Sword of Michael.

The Hosts of Heaven and the Hordes of Hell had planned the Apocalypse down to the last detail. They were all sure Destiny and Fate could not be altered once set in motion.

Of course, no one took into account, the theory that if a New Orleans butterfly flutters her wings, a man in Jericho might walk out of his hotel room and change everything.

Title: Fill in the Blanks
Author / Artist: annathemis / amberdreams
Summary: They thought it was an average case, hunting a witch, until Sam starts spouting gibberish. Losing coherency and his senses fast, Sam’s reality blurs into waking dreams while Dean frantically searches for any explanation amidst this inexplicable curse.

Title: Follow me Home...
Author / Artist: fate_incomplete / roselani24
Summary: Dean had woken up in a hospital with no idea who he was, just these strange dreams, and a doctor who may be even stranger. As he tries to make sense of his dreams and the memories hidden in them, he wonders if he wants to know the man he used to be. With a little help from a friend, he finds what he needs to get back home.

Title: Full of Sound and Thunder
Author / Artist: chiiyo86 / geckoholic
Summary: AU/futurefic after the end of season four; sequel to Hover Through the Fog and Filthy Air. In Portland, Oregon, Sam and Dean are dealing with the aftermath of a difficult hunt. Dean, who has been in therapy for a few years, finds them another hunt through his therapist: one of her patients is having very intense dreams after a strange encounter in the mountains. But after a conversation with the man, they worry that they're dealing with hellhounds. With the help of a now human Castiel, they have to work against the clock to fight an enemy more powerful than they suspected.

Title: Ghosts of Future Past
Author / Artist: etrix / amberdreams
Summary: Dean already knows that the future isn't looking good. Sam's sneaking out at night and lying about it. Dean's pretty sure the angels are dicks and that they're lying to him, too. It isn't until he gets a visit from his own ghost that he realizes just how bad it's going to get, and the future that was becomes part of Dean's memories of the past. Surely, with all that he knows, he can fix things—if he can stay alive and sane, that is. A season 4 AU that bumps into seasons 5 and 6.

Title: God Gave Rock and Roll to You
Author / Artist: sailorlaalaa / adrenalineshots
Summary: This story takes place between episodes 6.14 (Mannequin 3: The Reckoning) and 6.15 (The French Mistake). I'm going with the theory that it has been a year and a half since the showdown at Stull Cemetery. Sam (with his soul recently returned) and Dean are doing miscellaneous hunts to keep busy. Castiel and Raphael are still fighting over Heaven with no clear victor in sight. But who is looking after the Prophets of the Lord and keeping them safe during this Heavenly Civil War? What of Chuck Shurley, the one Prophet Raphael was assigned to personally protect? Does he still drink regularly? Does he still have sleepovers with one of his lady friends each night? Since Raphael isn't paying attention, has Chuck been given the ability to protect himself from demons and other things which may cause him harm? Do Sam and Dean approve of these new safeguards? This fun and lighthearted story should answer those questions and provide additional revelations about our beloved author and prophet.

Title: Graduation Day
Author / Artist: jennytork and ramblin_rosie / geaugaart
Summary: After years of diversions and interference, John finally makes his way to Cazadore to see Sammy graduate from high school. But what he finds there challenges everything he thought he knew about his sons, his friends, his foes, the hunting life, and the supernatural order itself. And for their part, Sam and Dean receive some long-overdue revelations and come to conclusions that John would never expect—and might never accept.

Title: In Memory
Author / Artist: mcnamcj / caluk
Summary: In the days after Sam’s departure to Stanford, John and Dean battle each other’s broken hearts while hunting a powerful witch, hell bent on avenging her dead son. Can the elder Winchesters put aside their family anguish to save the latest victim and escape the witch’s terrifying clutches? Or will Dean become her ultimate sacrifice, causing John to lose both of his sons forever? Hurt!Angsty!Dean , Angsty!John, hurt/comfort.

Title: In the shuffling madness of the locomotive breath
Author / Artist: the_sammykinz / dollarformyname
Summary: With Dean’s doomsday clock hovering at eleven months to go, the Winchesters decide that a good old-fashioned ghost hunt is in order, in the wilds of White River Junction, Vermont. What begins as an old local legend turns out to be much more, and what they thought was a simple case is anything but. In the end, it all comes down to two brothers—because, really, irony’s a b*tch.

Title: It Leaves a Stain On All Your Clothes (And No Detergent Gets It Out)
Author / Artist: purple_carpets / miki_moo
Summary: Back in 1991 the Winchesters spent a summer with an old hunter in Louisiana. Dean never told anyone about what happened during those nights, when John was out and Sammy was asleep. Now, they need to go back there on a hunt and Sam should really stop asking questions and throwing worried glances Dean's way. Dean's is fine. Not like he was traumatized or anything.

Title: Lankeer
Author / Artist: jennytork / spn_2008
Summary: The Winchester brothers' lives were never easy before. But collision alerts and older-little brothers jumping from bunks are never a pleasant way to wake up. The adventure begins with those twin shocks, and gets decidedly strange when Bobby tracks down the name of the world they are headed for.

Lankeer was once a thriving world, ready to join the fledgling Alliance. But now it has become the Bermuda Triangle of Alliance space—ships go in and are never heard from again. Instead of scaring them away, this information intrigues the Winchesters, and they decide to investigate this strange world.

Going in blind is never fun. Going in enraged after watching your brother quite literally shot from the sky makes things that much harder. Getting out from Lankeer may prove more than the Winchesters can handle.

Title: Look Back in Anger
Author / Artist: vail_kagami / quickreaver
Summary: When John Winchester is possessed by the yellow-eyed demon and asks his son to kill him, Sam does so and disappears, leaving his injured brother behind in a hospital. As a result of the demon's early death deals are never made and a lot of bad things never happen - but Dean doesn't know that. All he knows is that Sam killed his father and abandoned him.

Looking for answers, Dean chases his brother all through the United States while Sam solves cases he couldn't possibly know about and always remains one step ahead. When Dean finally catches up with him, the answers he gets are not the ones he expected and it looks like no matter what he does, he's only going to lose Sam in the end.

Title: Mythos
Author / Artist: zoemathemata / votaku
Summary: Six months after the apocalypse was averted, Dean is living with Lisa and Ben. He has a bed in the spare room. He cooks breakfast. He works with cement. He can’t sleep without waking up in a cold sweat and pretending he doesn’t remember what he was dreaming about. He wouldn’t exactly call it living, but he’s doing what he promised.

Until Death pays him a visit.

The averted apocalypse and subsequent fallout has left a vacuum in the natural order of things. Heaven is at war, Hell is in chaos and supernaturals are running amok. The bodies are piling up faster than Death can reap their souls. Death needs Dean Winchester back in business. And he’s willing to bargain to do it.

Pulling Sam out of the pit was easy. Now Death needs Dean to repay the favor and start doing his job.

A greek goddess is running rampant in a small town. The inhabitants are forced daily to reenact whichever myth tickles her fancy. As they die, she refuses to let their souls be reaped, stuffing them back into their bodies, reanimating them and winding them up to play once more.

Title: No Place to Grow Old
Author / Artist: greeneyes_fan / vail_kagami
Summary: As Dean drove out of Jericho, California, Sam threw back his head and laughed. With all the ugliness that went along with his family's lifestyle, he'd forgotten the thrill of hunting with his brother and the joy of a job well done. Still, there's no way I can keep hunting with you, not now. The long drives and the no sleep, the fights and the beatings, it'll take me a week to recover from this little weekend road trip. And there's no way you'd understand.

Title: Over the Hills and Far Away
Author / Artist: superbadgirl / apieceofcake
Summary: Set in late S3. With only a few months left before Dean’s deal comes to fruition, the boys are back in LA, but the less glamorous part of town where reports of several mysterious, messy deaths all point to the involvement of something supernatural. They encounter a witch more powerful than any they’ve ever seen, and during that encounter are transported thirty-three years into the past. Not only are they stuck in 1975 LA, the jump in time has done something Dean’s mind, leaving him with more unstable moments than lucid ones. Sam desperately tries to hold himself and Dean together and get them back to their own time without their usual methods (no phone, no computers, no Bobby), as Dean’s mind fractures piece by piece.

Author / Artist: bythedamned / kalliel

Author / Artist: pinkphoenix1985 / sailorhathor

Title: Saved To Save
Author / Artist: jennytork / geaugaart
Summary: After Lilith wipes out an entire police station, an unexpectedly honest demon crashes Ruby's reprimand of the Winchesters and reveals some stunning truths. The facts of the matter are: what came back from Cold Oak was not 100% pure Sam, Ruby is not who she seems, and the forces of Heaven and Hell are conspiring to get Dean Winchester's soul into Hell. With conspiracies revealed and very few places to turn, the brothers find themselves dealing with a strangely human angel and a race of alien beings whose reputation as rescuers precedes them. The goal is to save Dean Winchester from the terms of the Deal. The price of this unprecented cooperation might result in the salvation of both Winchesters. But it might just cost the brothers the Earth.

Title: Smokin' Holes Where My Memories Used to Be
Author / Artist: borgmama1of5 / quickreaver
Summary: November 2008. With Ruby's help, Sam and Dean have just manipulated the angels and demons to allow Anna to escape. Now Bobby has sent them to check on another set of omens in Chicago—only this time the trap is for them.

One brother wakes up in a warehouse with mutilated bodies—the other wakes up in a hospital ER—and neither has any memory of being a Winchester. Without any recollection of their own names, much less having a brother, how will they reconnect? And will Ruby help or hinder?

Title: The 24th Pair
Author / Artist: adrenalineshots / liliaeth
Summary: Reality is but a mere point of view, fuelled by the emotions it stirs. For Dean, reality is a life where he has lost everything: his brother, his friends, Lisa... his legs. The only thing Dean has left is Ben, a surrogate son that is about to be taken from his hands as well. For Sam and Bobby, reality is a constant search for someone that they have lost and keeping each other hopeful that their quest will not be in vain. And for some, reality is all that stands between them and their dreams of becoming more than humans. This is a story about the same event, experienced from three different points of view. Trust no one; take nothing for a fact. Assume only that illusion and reality are twin sides of the same mirror.

Title: The Art of Pulling Pie from Thin Air
Author / Artist: poetartist / vail_kagami
Summary: It's been four years since he disappeared from Stanford and Sam is wandering. Oh, he knows who he is, no amnesia involved (anymore), but he's not fully human (he's sure) and with that whole "if you walk out that door, don't you come back" still hanging between him and his family, Sam doesn't think they'll view his new demi-god status any different than college (except there might be more guns involved). With the vague and mostly frustrating guidance of trickster Coyote, his blunt and sarcastic teacher Fred (female, half-god), alcoholic berries, homicidal non-Winchester hunters, and pie, Sam comes to find that insanity brings the best clarity, and maybe you can go home again.

Title: The Importance of an Education
Author / Artist: gerolyn7 / deadflowers5
Summary: John and Mary Winchester died in a fire on November 2, 1982. Bobby Singer adopted their son Dean and raised him to be a brilliant hunter.

Title: Impala's Run
Author / Artist: monicawoe and quickreaver / adrenalineshots

Title: The Art of Re-Fixing Sour Lemonade Masterpost
Author / Artist: poetartist / chomaisky
Summary: Time is not a straight line. It's not even a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff, if you'll forgive the geek-ism. Time is a tangled web with no logical pattern with strands intersecting, occasionally exploding, and always moving. Case in point: every variation of the epic Winchester saga. It makes a great story but a shitty life because Adam dies and comes back and goes to hell in every retelling.

Not this time, though. With knowledge of what happens in every world Adam is alive in, he hops through timelines and tangled story threads to stay ahead of the angels seeking to secure one of the last remaining vessels for Michael. Time is running out, though, and as he fails again and again, Adam's last resort may only succeed in unraveling him out of existence, but not before he fixes what goes wrong in every timeline.

And if his half brothers would just mind their own business everything would work out easy as pie.

The Winchesters join in the hunt for the missing kids and soon find themselves on a case that’s bizarre, even for them; a case that could’ve come straight out of one of the sci-fi movie matinees that Dean used to drag Sam to as a kid.
