Summary:
Set in a world where competitive team stunt biking shows – explosive entertainment performances full of tricks, talent, fireworks and music – dominate the world of freestyle motocross biking, this story follows Sam and Dean Winchester as they deal with their lives, bikes, flips, tricks – and love.
Orphaned as kids when their father crash-lands a double backflip attempt, Sam and Dean grow up as part of his stunt team Winchester's Hunters; adopted by the group as family and rising to be the best two riders on the team, they grow up in this isolated world, where there is nothing more important in the boys' lives than biking and each other.
Two things loom on the horizon to threaten Dean's perfect little world: the new stunt team rising on the scene threatening his team's chances at the ultimate competition; and the strange new crippling tension between him and his brother that threatens to change – or even ruin – everything he holds dear.

Warnings/Spoilers: AU as of Devil's Trap, S2 spoilers abound, plus the Yellow-Eyed Demon's true name. Warnings include plenty of violence, light sexual content (very softcore porn) and some noncon kissing/groping.
Summary: A season two AU; casefic meets Wincest. John died instantly in the car accident, leaving Sam with survivor's guilt and a fear of driving. Several months later, Meg's taunts about Dean's feelings for Sam hit close too home. The boys reach some conclusions of their own about incest, but in Burbank, Oklahoma, Dean vanishes in the dead of night, and Sam's attempts to find him yield only a nest of demons. The next day, Sam finds Dean at the hospital, alive and well, if oddly distant. Whatever's up with Dean will have to wait, though; something in the hospital is nastily killing patients one by one, and that's nothing to Yellow-Eyed Demon's budding plans for Sam.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 38,000
Warnings/Spoilers: Issues of rape, with a heavy emphasis on recovery and a decided lack of easy fixes. Dub-con. Graphic violence/gore. Attempted rape (Well, sort of – demons are evil and like to push people’s buttons). Established relationship. Major Hurt/Comfort and a teensy... tiny... bit of angst. ::cough::
Summary: Months after being stricken with an incubus-like curse, the boys are building an ever-strengthening partnership out of the wreckage of its intense sexual requirements. Now, the ongoing physical relationship the sex demon forced on them has become a comfort to them both, and Sam's even finding ways to use the power they generate to make them better hunters. Of course, Sam can't always control his powers, and he's still having flashbacks to the captivity and torture that started it all. Dean's going out of his mind trying to help, but his brother's not the easiest guy to read, and Sam is definitely not in a talking mood. How far are they willing to go to make things right again?

Warnings/Spoilers: Spoilers through 5x15
Summary: Not long after his run-in with Famine, Dean breaks down and prays for help. It's not God who answers. Michael appears before him and instantly changes everything Dean thought he knew about the Apocalypse.
A few days later, Sam wakes up alone in Bells Pond, Nebraska -- a far cry from the drab motel room in Tennessee where he fell asleep. Without Dean, Sam explores his desolate surroundings and discovers that the town lies in ruins thanks to a demonic event. It becomes clear that Sam's not as alone as he thought, nor can he escape from his strange prison. He fights against the power holding him there, afraid every day that Lucifer will hunt him down and force him to say yes. The Apocalypse continues to rage outside of his isolated world and Sam fears for his brother's life. As time drags on, and as Lucifer takes Sam to ever more seductive places in his dreams, Sam realizes that the people of Bells Pond may provide the key to everything he's been searching for but never thought he'd find. And waiting in the future is an unforeseen miracle, if Sam can last that long.

Summary: Under mysterious circumstances bitterly disputed by the historians, Sam Winchester said yes to Lucifer. Three years later, Lucifer is gone and the familiar landscape that the Winchesters once traversed is a burnt-out ruin of its former self — not to mention the damage done to Lucifer's vessel. Trapped in a grotesque parody of domestic bliss with a brother he no longer recognizes, a shell-shocked Dean has no reason to believe that happy endings exist for men like the Winchesters.

Warnings/Spoilers: Underage sex (17)
Summary: John Winchester never did anything in small measure, and he took the safety of his boys very seriously. A spell is only as good as the man providing it though and when something goes wrong there is no one left to pick up the pieces. No one remembers. Certainly not two young men who wake with no memory of each other or how they ended up in a motel together. The only thing they do know is how to hunt. It's not as simple as that though, as the two men form unbreakable bonds and take the road to a life they never would have considered and a destiny they never wanted.

Summary: Sam and Jess have everything going for them. A beautiful life, a beautiful family-a beautiful tragedy. But Sam has been seeing things, been warned-warned but Sam didn't listen. Sam doesn't listen and that fairy-tale life in Palo Alto, California vanishes like smoke from a blown-out candle. So Sam does the only thing he can think of to do: like the prodigal son, he returns to his older brother, Dean, and slips back into hunting like wearing a comfortable old shoe. But things are not all as they seem, and that man with the yellow-eyes? He's had a plan for Sam Winchester all along.

Author: taelynhawker
Artist: wordplay__
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 50,000
Warnings/Spoilers: S2 AU, spoilers for S1-S5, minor character death
Summary: "The most important thing to know is that Dean doesn’t believe in destiny. He doesn’t believe in paths that are already chosen, or the preordained, or fate. He doesn’t believe that his own choices don't mean something. He doesn’t believe – can’t believe – that from the moment he was born everything in his life has been out of his hands." When John Winchester dies, he burdens his oldest son with a dark truth, and an impossible order to follow- watch out for his little brother and, if need be, kill him to keep him from turning evil. Dean's never disobeyed an order from his father but he won't kill his brother, he'd sooner kill himself. So when Sam's visions get worse and his powers start to grow they have to find another way of stopping them and the Yellow Eyed Demon's plans. A way that won't require one brother to kill another.

Title: The Last Temptation of Sam Winchester
Author: telaryn

Pairing: Sam/Dean (main), Sam/Madison
Rating: NC-17

Warnings/Spoilers: Slash, het, rape (graphic) of a minor canon character, death, death and more death. Offscreen death of a major character, on screen death of several minor characters and short, but graphic representation of suicide of a major character. Specific rape and death-related details here. Assume spoilers for canon up to "My Bloody Valentine".
Summary: The war between heaven and hell is dragging on, and the body count is getting increasingly personal for Sam and Dean. Lucifer is out of patience and out of time. Working with a heavenly turncoat, he ambushes the boys in the Nevada desert, spiriting Sam away to an oubliette with the intent of torturing and tempting him until he consents to embrace his destiny as Lucifer's vessel. Losing Sam is Dean's final straw - he abandons the mission, grows increasingly distant from Castiel, and throws all his energy into finding and saving Sam.
Sam's first temptation is an appeal to his White Knight complex - will he consent in order to save the damsel in distress?
The second temptation is family - he is offered enough power to restore his dead family to life.
The final temptation is Dean, who despite an unexpected assist from a mysterious stranger, is rapidly losing hope of reaching Sam in time.

Besides hunting down a Horseman, Sam and Dean say to hell with the world for one careless night, get smashed, and distort their brotherly relationship, maybe this time for good. The days after become a mix of surfaced, uncomfortable feelings; a vain attempt to capture Pestilence's ring; and another showdown against an angel after them to say yes. Maybe all roads do lead to the same destination, or maybe you can control your own destiny after all.

Word Count: 30,957
Warnings/Spoilers: AU from the end of Sex and Violence. Dark in places. Works canon elements from late season four and season five into the story.

Chuck wakes up that same morning to a pile of fractured rewrites in his head and his day goes rapidly downhill from there. He has to come to terms with the fact that his characters are real, and that he might hold the key to saving the world. All he has to do is piece together the future.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 69,000
Warnings/Spoilers:
major and minor character "death". Occasional gruesome horror and violence, massive angst, dark themes, religious mythology, explicit sex, Winchester love, and a familiar devil. This is the sequel to Santa Fe & Iron. Reading that first is not required, but will enrich this story.
Summary: 1870s. The American Midwest.
THEN: Sam, an inexperienced hunter, and Dean, a successful brothel owner, were raised apart, haunted by the fiery deaths of their parents. Reunited, their relationship as lovers and hunting partners was tested by the entity that shattered their family. Although they narrowly defeated the Fire Demon when it attacked, the shocking truth of their connection was revealed, and their lives are in danger.
NOW: Bound to each other, Sam and Dean are on a dark, demon-haunted road crisscrossing the Midwest from Kansas City to Memphis. While rebuilding their partnership as hunters and brothers, they realize their only common ground is a history of shared tragedy. Their friendship is further strained by apparitions of John and Mary, lost in Hell, and by recurring portents of fratricide. A mysterious hunter and a blind singer take a curious interest in them, revealing a world beyond that of angels and demons, the true source of the curse that marks Sam and Dean. A deal with a demon is their last desperate gamble to save their family – and the road lies through Hell, a place that is not all it seems – but a greater promise was made long ago by these brothers; there are other plans for their souls.

Loosely inspired by The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Warnings/Spoilers: up to 5x14 for spoilers, (very brief) character death, language, sacreilgious elements, and very brief (but tasteful) depictions of gore. Also this fic contains a healthy dose of crackiness.
Summary: The Apocalypse is lost. Dean said yes to Michael. And they still got their asses handed to them on a silver platter. Chaos had been unleashed. Demons are dancing over the dead angels. So it's up to Team Free Will (Sam Winchester-ex demon blood junkie, Castiel-Angel of Thursday and Gabriel Archangel/ex-Trickster/full time pain in the ass) to start Plan B, End Game, the Last Hope We Have For The World To Not End. The Plan is rather simple. Travel back in time to when Sam was on the road to Stanford, have Sam merge with his past self, and rewrite history (in true snarky/kick ass style) As for Dean? Well he remembers nothing of the future and what is (hopefully not) to come. Worse for Sam is that he doesn't remember their relationship. Meaning that ontop of the whole saving the world gig, Sam Winchester has to seduce his brother for the second time.

Summary: Sam and Dean Winchester are two ordinary brothers living ordinary, small-town lives. Okay, so maybe having a mother who was brutally murdered by one of America’s most notorious serial killers and a father who needs 6 different kinds of medication to get out of bed in the morning is not that ordinary, but the rest of their problems: relationship failures and job disappointments, too many bills and too much overtime, not to mention Dean’s two kids, 9 year-old Jonah with his disturbing passion for the music of Lady Gaga and 6-year old Simon with his severe hearing loss, well they’re entirely ordinary... The only thing extraordinary about Sam and Dean is this: the story of how they fell in love and how they learned to live with such an extraordinary love in such an ordinary world.

It's always seemed like a lost cause, until the day a former cult member appears in the hospital and changes everything. Castiel Novak has been beaten half to death, and Dean's positive the Soldiers of God are responsible. He's finally got the witness he needs to bring down the Soldiers of God, but there's just one problem - Castiel can't remember what happened to him.
And once he does remember, Dean's problems are far from over. Castiel's unwilling to testify against his former family, he's hiding secrets of his own... and worst of all, as Dean tries to convince Castiel to put his aggressor behind bars, he begins to realize he's falling for the man. But Castiel is the key witness in the trial of Dean's career, a trial that will pit them against probing reporters, conniving attorneys and a man willing to murder his own son for the sake of his faith, and Dean can't risk losing his testimony - not even if it means losing him.

Warnings/Spoilers: Non-con, scenes of torture, some religious themes. Spoilers up to 5.03, where it branches off to AU.
Summary: Lucifer is best at two things: Manipulation and Deceit. Castiel hasn't been Castiel for a very long time, and with nothing left to hold onto, Dean spirals down into a pit of torture and degradation. When the Devil kicks Castiel out of Jimmy's body, he weaves a world of lies around Dean's life that is so carefully interwoven with reality, no one is the wiser. Dean kills, thrills, and eventually strings himself out on Heaven's equivalent of crack cocaine, and at the end of this long journey of royally screwing himself over, Lucifer, in possession of Castiel's vessel, spirits Dean away for a little "quality time" together. Add in flashbacks of Lucifer's time in Heaven, the slow dissension between two angelic brothers, and The End Of The Apocalypse, and we've got ourselves a mighty fine time.

Lucifer offers Sam an ultimatum: Say yes in Detroit and Dean will live his perfect, apple-pie life -- safe but without knowing he has a brother; say no, and Lucifer will send Dean back to Hell. As Sam deals with the consequences of his decision, he finds it harder to resist his former demons. Without Dean, Sam becomes less human and travels the long road toward oblivion.

Summary: On October 31st, 2005, Sam Winchester wakes up to find someone rummaging through his kitchen. It's his father, with bad news: his brother's dead, and the thing that killed him is coming to Palo Alto. Weeks later, Jo Harvelle follows a lead on her missing boyfriend to a mental health facility and meets a man, dressed in half-scrubs, half-flannel, with bandaged wrists and paranoid tendencies. His name is Dean Winchester, he knows more than he possibly could, and convincing his family he's not really dead would only be half their problem -- if Jo can help him find them. . . .

Warnings/Spoilers: General spoilers for any episode in seasons 1-5. I don't believe in warnings for every little thing, but as for the big triggers -- this story does NOT have those. Highlight following for spoilers/warnings: However. It does have a character death. I thought long and hard about how I wanted to warn for this, and decided to post this particular “warning” behind a cut.
Summary: This isn’t a story about the Apocalypse. It’s not even really a story about demon hunting and the supernatural, though all these things are featured. It’s an AU story about the deep bond that brothers have, and the lengths they’ll go to for each other, beginning when Sam and Dean Winchester are children, and Sam needs a kidney transplant. It’s not about one brother over the other, but the idea that, without one brother there isn’t the other. It’s an exploration of sacrifice and unconditional love, the study of what family can mean -- what it should mean. It’s about love and despair, fear and grief, heroism and ultimately -- hope.

Jared isn't any happier at the thought of yet another interview with someone who's already made up his mind that Jared's nothing but a pretty face, but the network insists, so fine. He'll do the interview, practice his patience, and be done with it.
Funny how things don't quite work out that way.

Summary: Jared is living in Texas with his daughter after he and Genevieve divorce, their marriage of five years having fallen apart. While there trying to regroup, his agent calls with news about two developments in the works for him. To promote both projects, Jared's agent books him on a press junket, including an extended interview on a well known talk show. Part of his reason for doing this particular show is that the host has promised Jared a chance to meet the director of his next film. Surprise, Jensen is there as well, and he's Jared's new director.
Jensen never really left the spotlight. He married Danneel at the end of Supernatural's fifth season. Now a successful director, Jensen owns his own studio. He's prepping his next film and wants Jared for the role, but because of their history, isn't sure Jared will sign on, so he keeps his name off the project and sends the script to Jared. They haven't spoken to each other since the end of Supernatural because of a fight, marriages and the passing of time. It's not what Jensen had intended, but he had meant it when he'd told Jared 'all or nothing.'
Now, with the past beyond them, like water under the bridge, can Jared and Jensen work together, live together, and find their way to happiness?

Summary: Three hundred years ago the people of Zyreta were united. Their diverse, scientifically inclined, space-faring society had already expanded to settle the other planets within the habitable zone of their binary solar system, as they avidly explored the galaxy.
Then disaster struck. An unexpected foe returned after millennia of absence and left the bustling world in discord and ruin.
Today, Zyreta is two worlds: Zyreta above, a medieval, idyllic, but oppressive, merchant and agrarian society where “magic” abounds, and the Scientist Union below, a small, but free and scientifically and technologically advanced society founded by the outcasts of the world above. Now, the old foe has returned and both worlds face annihilation unless they can uncover the secret to turning back the foe once and for all.
But it won’t be easy...
Zyreta is a theocracy where nothing is as it seems. The Scientist Union is desperate, paranoid, and weary after centuries of cold war. And the fate of the star system lies in the hands of two young men, one from each world, who must overcome social and religious taboos to work together, racing against time while fighting enemies at every turn.
This is their story. The story of the Agent and the Lost Son—how they found each other, forged a friendship, fell in love, and saved the world.

Summary: The only luck Jensen seems to be having lately is bad – he's accidentally come out to his family and been disowned (sort of), had his lyrics stolen by his best friend (now ex) who he last saw sipping champagne on an episode of CMT Cribs, and is one late rent payment from being thrown out on his ass because no one wants to buy insurance from a guy with an eyepatch (don't ask).
But things finally start to look up when he meets his hot new neighbor, Jared, and of course that's when Jensen has to go and get himself killed.
Turns out the afterlife? Not all it's cracked up to be. And his death coach is kind of a douche, too.

Warnings/Spoilers: Language, boy-sexin', schmoop
Summary: When Jensen Ackles first met Jared Padalecki, it was most definitely not love at first sight. It wasn’t even like at first sight. In fact, Jensen hated him, and he had a few good reasons as to why. So what if his new co-star was oblivious to his one-sided warfare? Jensen could deal. Apart from when he couldn’t. So when it came down to picking between Padalecki and his peace of mind, the choice seemed clear. Except for the fact that The Network had his balls in a vice, leaving him stuck with Supernatural, stuck with his idiot co-star, and worst of all, stuck with a ‘Play Nice’ Proviso added to his contract. Well, he could play nice. He would play so nice that the world was going to think that he and Jared Padalecki were the bestest friends in the history of best friends. It was unfortunate then that no one had ever told Jensen what happened when an immovable object met an irresistible force; no one had ever thought to mention that there was a thin line between hate and love; and nothing, absolutely nothing, could have possibly prepared him for Playing Nice with Jared Padalecki.

Summary: Jared is the owner of a successful bar in San Antonio. One day, a stranger walks into the bar with no idea who he is. All he knows is that he woke up in the local hospital after a vicious assault, and all he owns are the clothes he has stolen and the scars the attacks left him with. Giving the beautiful stranger a name - Jensen - Jared offers him a job and a place to live and soon enough the pair fall in love and start to build a life together. Until Jensen goes out one morning and doesn't come back. Frantic with worry, Jared discovers that Jensen has been in an "accident" which has robbed him of the memory of the time that he spent with Jared, but given him back the memory of who he was before they met. Will Jensen remember who Jared is before whoever is trying to end Jensen's life succeeds?
A/N: This is based extremely loosely on my favourite film - Random Harvest - one of which most of you will have never heard because it was made in 1942 :) Although the basic premise of amnesia is the same, the story is not a re-telling of the film.

Family was a word that meant the people who kicked you out, religion was nothing more than a free meal, and salvation something that he could buy for ten bucks a hit down on the bad side of town. Scoring had become his full-time job, and finding a safe place to sleep was what he did in his time off. It was only a matter of time until this life caught up with him. Now, strung out and with no where else to go, Jensen finds himself following his feet to a place he never thought he would go--to the home of a stranger who can unfailingly see past Jensen's mistakes, and who can see right through to the good that is still left within him. The challenge is getting Jensen to see it as well.

Coincidentally, Thunderbird Wine's singer goes off the rails, and the label wants him gone. The band needs someone for 12 shows and an album to fulfill their contract. Think shirtless, sweaty, tights, hair extensions, and living on a bus with a Machiavellian manager, a ferociously cheerful bassist, a lead guitarist who’s more than a little rodeo and the prettiest damn drummer in the industry.

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 33,000
Warnings/Spoilers: Things that come with the territory: mentions of pain and illness, a few gory details, character death. Neither of the Js is any deader in the end than he was in the beginning, though. While this fic is based on the premise of "Dead Like Me", it's not a retelling. This universe has its own rules and its own story, sprinkled with occasional references to the source.
Summary: Jared sort of figured that death would mean a change in location. He just didn't think he'd have to move to Los Angeles and start working as a grim reaper. Every day, he and his colleagues (Jensen, Misha, Genevieve and their boss Loretta) meet up at the Bavarian Waffle House to get their assignments. After a rough start, Jared and Jensen just click - and decide that there's really no reason for dead guys to play by the rules. They both have questions, and a road trip to Texas might help them get some answers.

Story Summary: Gabriel fell long before the birth of Christ - although that was his last official mission for the home that he had deserted.

So he slipped from Heaven, and met a Trickster one day in the south of France. Their years together lead to her exhaustion of the world, and once she leaves Gabriel is the most powerful Trickster in existence. Of course, that all goes to Hell when the Apocalypse starts, and Gabriel finds his loyalties torn between the family he still loves and the new life he has forged for himself on Earth.
