Meme: Day 2, Something New

Jo's Last Chance Coffee Shop (LJ | AO3) - SPN - Jo/Ruby - 3k, rated R
Summary: Out of all the coffee shops in all the crumbling post-apocalyptic world, Ruby walks into Jo's.

This fic is what happens when I get it into my head to write a post-apocalyptic coffee shop AU. In a world that fell apart somewhere mid-S4 (for reasons that are never explicitly given in the fic but which begin and end with Eve), Jo's alone, surrounded by monsters, and no longer interested in much anything except making coffee for people and maybe, in memory of her mom, serving as something of a resource for hunters, the way the Roadhouse always was. And into this fragile status quo walks Ruby, looking for Sam Winchester.

I love the world I developed for this, I love this muted, shades-of-gray Jo, and I love the relationship I developed between her and Ruby. This is exactly the kind of relationship that post-apocalyptic and other catastrophic scenarios provide some fertile ground for. Everything's so deliciously bleak and prickly!

Great story! I think from the members of my flist doing this that I'm going to have some good stuff to read this weekend.

Yeah, I definitely plan to make the rounds and go read/comment on stuff, if I hadn't read and commented on it before.
