Opinion ~Unpopular or Not: We lost to Brit/Santana (who are adoracute, by the way) and I was sad about it tbh. I love the few Glee fics Ive read, but -frankly-- I'm a lot more about the SPN than I am about the Glee. Yet, thinking a bit more about the whole situation, we deserved to lose. It's ugly as hell to see mostly heterosexual people fighting it out so that the gay fictional people they fap to can win an online poll. Rly, people, I'm all for confrontation and stating opinions in a straight-forward balls to the wall manner, but when it pertains gay visibility in the mainstream media, why not be a little more respectful? people should just mind manners and wipe their fucking feet. this is not really their house, they're just playing in it.

And they Cry to See Your Face by ~Honeylocusttree
awesome fic is awesome. lot of commenters focused on how bamf the Winchesters are here, but I just felt the bitterness of their portion in life. even while they were risking their lives, shortening their years from the stress alone, they're still feared/hated/misunderstood. I particularly adored the outside pov on Standford!Sam, who died pinned to that apartment ceiling as surely as Jess.

Redemption
It's tricky to rec something like this because the alternate episodes are written by different authors, so-- but overall, I think they are doing pretty well...something I do miss from canon is the lighthearted moments between the dramatic ones. in this re-imagining the poetry overwhelms the usual fucked up Winchester penchant for deflection by way of humor/pop culture references/exuberant vulgarity.

Three foggy mornings and one rainy day (will rot the best birch fence a man can build) by ~Britomart_is
people rly rec me the good shit.

God, Mary thought she knew all the ways in which she'd been catastrophically wrong, but there's one more for the list — she thought that Dean was too young to grieve his brother. Thought he was too young to understand. He would have been the best big brother. She wishes more than anything that she could have seen it. Instead she gets this poisoned, perilous thing, watching Dean's fierce instincts attach to the saddest, smallest creature within reach.

read "Apt Pupil" by King and it fucked me up, ngl. the dude still slays. i love stories about corruption (in fandom the corruption often goes on backwards; Jensen is a cynical bastard and he's "corrupted" by Jared's love for life) but here...tricky-tricky. can you corrupt the willing? idk.
