Anya final stand, S7

SPN recs #15

Just a handful this time.

Horse Skull by [archiveofourown.org profile] story_monger
Jo+Ellen casefic, 13k. FRIENDS. This is the Jo+Ellen complicated familial relationship casefic I have been wanting FOR YEARS and here it is!! I love how it explores all the ways Jo and Ellen don't fit and yet keep trying anyway, and the case itself is suitably weird and creepy, with that great sense of place that's so integral to SPN. The desert setting is great. HIGHLY recommended.

History/Entertainment/Sports and Leisure by de_nugis
Sam/Castiel, one-shot. Angsty and great. All Sam's dysfunction is on display, sexual and otherwise, and these points of human connection, and then into the angst there are these startling, perfect injections of humor.

Four People Ruby Seduced & One She Actually Fell For (Or: Ruby's Epic Love Affair with Humanity in General and Sam in Specific) by [archiveofourown.org profile] tuesday
Ruby/many, 4k. In which Ruby has a lot of sex, is not any kind of therapist that would be legal, and helps a few people out for her own reasons. This has multiple pairings (Ruby/Castiel! Ruby/Jo!) that I've kept an eye out for for years. The Jo/Ruby in particular was delicious. A fun character study of a complicated character. Delightful.

So how did Sam ingest ALL that demon blood in 5.22? by anon
Sam+Dean, one-shot. Ummm this is a kinky little belly-inflation commentfic someone wrote many moons ago on the SPN anon meme, and I hunted it down again because I still think about it all these years later. *__* If you are into that sort of thing, then you absolutely should read this fic.

Anya final stand, S7

a smattering of things

* I'm having a really great time talking to people about horror, and I have gotten so many great-looking recs. I feel like I could happily spend the next two months doing nothing but hunting down recs from that post and watching them.

* I'm contemplating [community profile] smutswap (multi-fandom porn exchange) and [community profile] unusual_bearings (multi-fandom exchange for non-PIV pregnancies). I definitely should not do both. I've already nominated a bunch of stuff for Smut Swap because I can't help myself, but I do also have a bunch of canons I want mpreg for, so an all-mpreg signfup for Unusual Bearings is extremely appealing. Meanwhile I'm seeing talk for [community profile] fandom5k, which I've always been intrigued by but too busy for. HMM.

* I bought Sunless Sea in the Steam sale, so I guess I will finally give that a shot. However, I gather that it actually requires a certain degree of skill, and one of the things I've always liked about Fallen London is that it requires ZERO skills. So we will see.
