The Incestuous Courtship of the Antichrist's Bride is a Wincest story written by Fleshflutter as part of the 2009 Supernatural Big Bang.

It is a humorous tongue in cheek tale of Sam Winchester accepting his role (reluctantly) as the Anti-Christ. In doing so, he inadvertently signs up his brother Dean to be his consort/bride. Matchmaking angels and demons, ritualistic sex on altars and drunk dialing phone calls to Satan are some of the more popular plot-points from the story.

As part of the Big Bang, artwork for the fic was provided by wanttobeatree & vamptastica.

It is available as an ebook from Amalthia's Ebook Library and as a podfic read by FayJay. As of October 2011, the story is in the process of being translated into Russian by Loki.[1]

Author's summary: Sam is trying to become the Antichrist in order to save the world. He has a small army of angels and demons, he has an adoring cult, he has a work of prophecy by Jack Kerouac, and he has Dean. Things are going pretty well until he accidentally signs Dean up as his Beloved Consort, a role that requires sex with the Antichrist on an altar. And that's when things stop going pretty well. Also, the soundtrack to the Apocalypse sucks.


Reader reactions

  • "But, if you do want some truly spectacular fan-written apocrypha, I highly recommend fleshflutter's fabulous fic 'The Incestuous Courtship of the Antichrist's Bride'. It's hilarious, well-written, and features mock apocrypha written by Jack Kerouac. It's great."[2]
  • "I'd marry this fic in a shotgun Vegas wedding if I could."[3]
  • "It is HILARIOUS and hot and awesome." [4]
  • "Let me just begin by saying that this is one of the most fantastic Wincest fic's out there. It's just...ugh. In fact, when I'm done here, I'm going to go read it again. In my opinion, it's so fantastic because it's got an air of realism (as far as you can have realism in wincesty Supernatural fic). Dean might start out reluctant after Sam's super booboo, but after the help of an entire creative cast of angels and demons, even he comes around to it."[5]
  • "This fic is probably the one that made me fall in love with Wincest. It's hilarious. The boys get themselves into a ridiculous situation, and it is fantastic start to finish."[6]
  • "This is the kind of crackfic that totters around on six-inch heels, clutching a magnum of Champagne whilst on a ledge blindfolded. I think it fell off right before the end, but that's really me and my issues. I'm not sorry I read it, and I think fans of the genre will get a lot out of it. It's smart crackfic, and it has something to say."[7]
