Title: Baba O’Riley and Eleanor Rigby walk into a bar [AU]

When Dean Winchester was eighteen he almost lost his brother a second time to a full bathtub and a pack of sleeping pills, citing some decidedly unbrotherly feelings in his suicide note. At twenty-two he’s about to lose him for a third time to Stanford University.
Comment: This is your typical “what if” kind of story. The story is told in a very good rhythm and the fact that it’s told through Dean’s eyes is very appropriate.
Title: Consider The Hairpin Turn
Summary: AU of 6x22: Sam’s wall has shattered and the memories in his mind have splintered. When the Sam who remembers Hell tells him to go find Jess and be happy, Sam knows he can’t stay while Dean needs him. But when the Sam from Hell says that Dean is already there looking for him, Sam leaves his memories of the pit behind to find him. What he finds is a life he doesn’t remember: a house that he shares with his brother (and has for years), a law career he thought he’d left behind at Stanford, and a relationship with Dean he never dreamed he could have. Life is almost too good to be true, at least until Sam begins to hear his brother’s voice calling to him, begging him to wake up.
Comment: Heavy in some places, but this was very well written and explores parts of Supernatural that the show couldn’t go into. I normally don’t like stories that rewrite what has already happened on the show, but this one was well executed and a very interesting read.

Title: One Going On Eternity And Counting
Summary: Some boundaries were never meant to be crossed. Sam counts the times Dean tells him no.

Summary: Dean get a little freaked out about his relationship with Sam, and a whole lot freaked out when calling it off gets Sam interested in some other guy.
Comment: Good plot, so-so porn.
Title: Pretty Little Thing

Sam snuck out after Dean just because he could, he picked a costume he knew Dean would never recognize him in. After spending the evening being chased by his brother Sam ends up in a semi public place with Dean all over him. Sam’s stupid crush on his own brother is not helping matters either.

Summary: Sam and Dean are stuck in a time loop and try everything to get out of it.
Comment: Nicely written with a bit of over-flowing emotions in both Sam and Dean’s cases.
Title: Sharp Dressed Man
Summary: There are probably any number of totally appropriate responses to walking in on your sixteen-year-old brother in lace panties and fishnet, thigh-high stockings. Getting stupidly hard is not one of them.
Title: Stranger Than Fiction
Summary: Set immediately post-The Monster at the End of This Book. Dean can’t stop wondering why people would write gay porn about him and Sam. Research takes him to interesting places; re-reading novels for subtext, visiting message boards, and a really freaky place called LiveJournal. What he discovers is a sick fascination with fanfiction, more about gay sex than he ever wanted to know, and an even deeper obsession with understanding why people write this stuff. Meanwhile, they’re hunting a mysterious monster that takes the form of a person’s truest love to kill them slowly, the lines between fanfiction and reality are starting to break down, and they still have to stop Lilith and save the world.
Comment: Really kinky but set in a way that is believable. Strong character development and the story is just overly nice written. With a lot of porn.
Title: The Allegory Of The Cave
Summary: Set in the New York subway, The Allegory of the Cave is a reflective account of images real and imagined, remembrance, desire and obsession. Leaching memory, capturing souls, somewhere a hundred and thirty feet below the streets of Manhattan is an evil the Winchester brothers must face. But there’s a fine line between reality and imagination, and neither brother can be sure of their footing in this upside down world.
Comment: This is one of the best wincest out there. Amazingly well-written with so much research and loveable side-characters involved. This story is thrilling and filled with suspense… it could’ve been an un-aired episode for what it’s worth. This is one of the most intelligent fanfic I’ve ever read.
Title: The King Of Imperfection Takes Back The King Of Mistakes
Summary: And they lived happily ever after. No, wait. Back up. Once upon a time, two heroes were born, but they weren’t heroes yet. They journeyed through deep dark woods, slew fearsome beasts, and weathered torrential storms. In this way they grew into men. Much better. The men fought a great and terrible war. Trials of deceit, despair and desolation imperiled them at every turn. Though heartsick and weary, they prevailed. Much, much better. The war. The good parts. But the good parts were still to come. The heroes won the war, and then—they lived happily ever after.

Title: Waiting Games
Summary: The bad news is that Sam’s ability is changing. The worse news is that he’s having visions of him and Dean. Doing that.

Title: Like A Slow Fire Burn

Sam attends the local university. When Gabe’s cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam’s university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma’s coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That’s just logic.
[x] Title: Baggage [AU]
Summary: Dean is a lonely cab driver trying to straighten out his life since his brother left for college, and Castiel is the strange and otherworldly “escort” who snares his heart. Are daddy issues the only thing they have in common? Or is there something more to what is happening between them?

Title: Bring It On Home [AU]
Summary: Dean the Sales Rep just moved into the neighborhood, and his neighbor is a definitely crazy shut-in.
Comment: This is by far the best Destiel fanfic I’ve ever read. The writing style is a bit off at some places, but the sheer genius behind the characters makes you forget about it. It’s your typical Dean The Business Man and Castiel The Weird Hippy. But seriously, this is one amazing fic that I have read more than once.

Their new friendship gets complicated when it becomes clear that Castiel’s brothers aren’t just strange, they’re dangerous, and the secrets they keep and the sins they bury have a lot to do with Dean.

Title: Shootin’ You Straight [AU]
Summary: Dean Winchester is in a rock band and Castiel is a fan. Not of the music, of Dean. An opportunity presents itself one night after a concert and Castiel can’t pass up the chance of a lifetime. It’s not perfect, but this is their story.

Over the course of decades, it has torn him apart to the point of considering suicide on a daily basis. That is until he has a very special vision of a young man being stabbed in the subway and said man turning towards him, begging Jensen to help him even though Jensen isn’t even supposed to be there.

[x] Title: Anywhere And Everywhere People [AU]
Summary: Jared, heir to an intergalactic shipping company, receives a body slave as a sixteenth birthday gift.

Comment: Ok, ok, this one’s a mighty weird one. I think I mostly liked it because the psychology development of the characters (mostly Jensen) is understandable. I don’t think this is something that could happen to a real human being (what with the amnesia and all the trauma), but it’s written in an inventive manner. Oh yeah and the porn is good.
Title: Book Knowledge [AU]

But a fifth of whiskey and one incredibly wasted blog post does give him the chance to rebuild his friendship with Jared, who he hasn’t spoken to in two years.

Comment: Fun read and kinda cute.
Title: Do I Seem Bulletproof To You? [AU]
Summary: When he can’t find any acting work, Jared takes a job as driver and bodyguard to Jensen, who is an extremely expensive prostitute with a bad habit of attracting crazy people.
Comment: This one is super-famous among the hooker AUs out there, so if you’re into that kind of story and haven’t read this one, you’re missing out. I have to say that I found the story long at some points, but it’s worth the read.
Title: Feeling is First [AU]
Summary: Jensen’s a hooker and entertains a “blind” relationship with a particular client.
Comment: Quick good ficlet.

Comment: I had to struggle a lot to read this entirely. Losing my eyes terrifies me to no extent, and this story is heavy on the shoulders. I don’t recommend it for the writing style, but I recommend it for the way the author juggled with very serious and realistic topics. Characters are well developed.
Title: If Things Come Alive [AU]
Summary: Jensen winces and thunks his head back against the wall. “You’re holding me for ransom, aren’t you?” Jensen never really expected his father to pay, and somewhere in the back of his head, he saw this becoming the rest of his life. Nothing but one room and Jared.
Comment: I really have this thing for kidnapped!Jensen so here’s another fic about it.
Title: In A Mirror Distorted And Indistinct
Summary: They keep calling him beautiful. Pretty. “Come on. Look this way. Give us a smile, Jensen.” He smiles and blinks against the flashes, fighting the urge to lower his eyes, to hide the blush burning under layers of makeup. Sweat runs down his back, his hands tremble. He’s not pretty, not beautiful. He’s small and weak and pathetic and one day they’re all gonna figure it out. One day…
Comment: I read this while I was in Japan and my travel buddy was so tired of me poking her and rambling on-and-on about this fic that I think she might be able to retell the story without having read it. It’s incredibly well written, up to the point where I forgot where fiction started and where reality is. I mean, I understand that this fanfic is, well, fiction, but the way she wrote J2 is exactly the way I imagine they act when they are not in the public eye. I can’t recommend you to read this more than I am right now. Just read it and enjoy.
Title: Infidel [AU]
Summary: Lt. Gen. Jared Padalecki finds himself the slave of a mysterious religious figure in an enemy citadel. His life and soul are on the line as he tries to understand what purpose he seems destined for at the hands of his captors.
Comment: This is one hell of an AU. I raise my hat to the author who managed to incorporate religious themes within the story without turning it into an allegory of reality and keeping it enjoyable. Strong story with a lot of smut.
Title: Instinct & Taste [AU]
Summary: As a young chef trying to break into the sizzling hot world of Charleston cuisine, Jensen Ackles spent more time in the kitchen than he did sleeping, eating, or socializing; he was absolutely dedicated to his craft and to the mentor who’d given him a chance.

Now, shouldered with the extra burdens of caring for his brother’s house and keeping his job safe from a brown-nosing new sous chef, Jensen tries everything, up to and including therapy, to keep his life from boiling over. It’s not until he hires college senior Jared Padalecki that things start to turn around, and Jensen learns that if he can stand the heat, fate might cook up something even better.
Comment: Amazing read with an array of very well developed side-characters. Story is amazingly well written and has made me want to know more about cooking and high-class restaurants’ kitchens in general.
[x] Title: Jensen Ackles Doesn’t Exist / Coral [AU]
Summary: It’s your average damaged!Jensen get’s kidnapped by art theif!Jared story…
Comment: This is my personal favorite J2 fanfic ever. I’m usually not a fan of the whole falling in love with your tormentor kink, but this one has really good characters and let’s all face it, this author’s version of Jensen is just priceless. Sequel is not what I expected but concludes the story nicely.
Title: Kaleidoscope / Refraction / Fractal [AU]
Wordcount: ~6700 / ~6200 / ~9000
Summary: Looking for a distraction, rich lawyer!Jared picks up younger hustler!Jensen.
Comment: I can’t recommend this one enough. But it’s probably me and my very very weird kink. But if you’re going to read one hooker fic, it has to be this one. Jared is kind of an asshole but you learn to love him. This is a 3-part fic, links to the next section at the bottom of each page.

But our boy decides that he’s willing to put down a deposit for a one-on-one inspection to test this particular slave’s sensitivity, check him for blemishes, etc. I want the buyer to be kind of clinical about everything, treating this purchase like he would any other.
Comment: Sick kink of mine where I can’t get enough of Jensen in these kinds of situations.
Title: Neckties, Contract, High Voltage [AU]

Things only get more confusing when Jared arrives at his new master’s home and finds that there are no other slaves. He soon learns that Ackles freed all of his father’s slaves when he inherited them and has been a vocal supporter and patron of anti-slavery groups since. Jared doesn’t know how to reconcile this knowledge with his master’s outward coldness, but the more he learns about Ackles, the less he seems to fit into the assumptions that Jared has made about him.
Title: Rules of Engagement [AU]
Summary: Jensen Ackles is a high class hooker, working for one of the most prestigious and discreet escort agencies in the continental US.

Title: The Courtship Of Jensen’s Co-Star
Summary: Somewhere in the time between a handshake and a hug, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki went from being reel-life brothers to real-life best friends, and complete strangers to cosmic soul mates, no rhyme or reason to it that either of them could ever see. Jared was everything Jensen was not: friendly, funny, and full of life; one in six-point-whatever billion the Earth’s population currently stood at. Life was awesome. Work was amazing. Everything was fine until Jared kissed Jensen. Everything was peachy until Jensen fell in love. With desperate times unexpectedly calling for desperate measures, Jensen called Chad Michael Murray for relationship advice – because being in love led to temporary insanity obviously – so it really didn’t surprise him that he couldn’t seem to win when it came to wooing Jared. Still, Pisces must’ve been in a really good place in the night sky or something because suddenly, right smack dab in the middle of the miserable courtship of his co-star, Jensen discovered that maybe loving Jared was all he needed to do to win his heart. And luckily for Jensen, loving Jared was also the one thing he did best.
Comment: Very very long fic, but worth the read if you have the time. I enjoyed the way some facts are very well blended into our reality. In other words, you could look up some things that happen in this fic and realize they really did happen. Good research and nicely laid out.
Title: The Doors Of Time [AU]
Summary: JA/JP AU. About love and Fate and destiny. And Jensen being weird. And piano music. And finding the one person that’s made for you in a world that isn’t. Something like that.
Comment: An amazing read. Feel good vibes written all over. I hesitated before starting it before I felt the first part would drag on, but trust me when I tell you that it is worth reading. I’m not entirely satisfied with the way things turn out, but the concept is sheer pleasure to take in and the story made me want to believe in magic. I just love the whole enchanted!Jensen concept. Very nice.

Summary: Jared’s life is good; his family might call him “loser” but he has everything he dreams of: more money than he can spend, cool friends to hang out with, and chicks to bang whenever he wants to. It could go on like this, but then Jared’s life takes an unexpected turn when his grandma leaves him her old, long abandoned apple farm in Vermont. Because the inheritance is made with the proviso that only Jared can rebuild the farm, he fulfills his grandmother’s wish and moves to the tiny town of River’s End, where everyone but Sam, the owner of the local inn, holds a grudge against Jared’s family. On the night Jared arrives, a homeless man collapses in front of the inn. John, the town vagrant, can’t remember anything of his life prior to when he woke up in a field, only clad with a cloak, and a single, torn and stained page of a mysterious book in its pocket. Even though Jared is repulsed by John’s state and doesn’t want to have anything to do with the tramp, he helps Sam to take care of him. Soon enough, Jared learns that there is a sad, mysterious story and a kind heart beneath all those layers of dirt. Jared and John become friends, and help each other to see the best in themselves. As their friendship strengthens, John begins to fall in love with Jared. Jared also starts to develop confusing feelings for his friend.

Title: Reconciling Hollywood
Summary: Misha has always prided himself on his mastery of the first impression - both giving and receiving. After all, people are easy enough to read if examined through the appropriate lens. For the last two years he’s stuck to his guns and his assumption that Jensen is just a good guy who made a dick mistake back when he thought Misha was disposable. Pushed him up against a trailer door and took because he could. But now, with Jared overseas with his new bride, Jensen around more than ever, and a decision weighing heavy on his conscience, Misha realizes that truly knowing Jensen might be nearly as impossible as knowing himself.
Comment: Cute and you really recognize Jensen and Misha. It’s a bit scary how this author nails their personality down so well.
