Supernatural and fic plus bunnies
How was I to know that taking a nice long walk helped against a headcold?

Feeling somewhat better now, still sniffing, and in need of a handkerchief, but my throat is feeling slightly better and my head isn't hurting as much, even without the use of yet another perdolan (aka the that would have been the third today)

So good to know.

Also loving Supernatural this season, can't think of a single of the three eps so far that I didn't like.And yeah, I want to see Sam and Dean kiss and make up (well not so much the kiss, but at least a nice hug would be of the good), but I love Dean making a connection with Castiel. (in fact I like Cas more this season than I did in season four, can't explain why, I just do)

I think I'm also starting to like Dean/Cas fics more. As long as they aren't just fluff or pwp at least. I just really like plotty fics, if I wanted to just read a story about two guys having sex, I could get those in just about any fandom out there. I want to read about Dean, the hunter and Castiel, the rebellious angel. I want to read about them becoming friends. Not just about Dean who is already totally in love with Cas (cause that isn't canon, don't mind him falling for Cas, but if he does, I just really want to see it happen... you know?)

And I want to see fics that deal with Cas coming to understand what he did to Jimmy and how this affects Dean's reactions to him. Especially now that Dean is starting to realize what awaits him if he lets Micheal use him for his vessel.

I mean, I've seen several people posting on how it would have been rape for Sam to sleep with Ruby, because of the girl Ruby was possessing. Yet with Cas, people just seem to write it of as 'Jimmy is dead'

So far I've seen few or no fics dealing with Jimmy's consent or lack of it, if Cas were to sleep with Dean. With Jimmy being married and all that.

I also really would like to see fics dealing with Jimmy's friends and family, how do they react to this 'being' for lack of a better word, that is possessing their loved ones body?

Aren't there any fics that deal with that?
(if I weren't already stuck with a few fics that I really have to finish first, (like say a certain Crossover Big Bang fic) I'd think of writing a fic about Zachariah's vessel. In my mind the poor guy was some kind or gentle pastor, possibly a family man who though the was doing the right thing by allowing an angel to work through him. And then finds out that angelic bureaucracy is as evil as the human kind.And yeah, I know the guy doesn't have to be a christian, but I don't know...

Either that or a fic about the man that was Uriel's vessel, and his thoughts as the angel he let in, murdered several other angels and his feelings on humans... Or you know, just one of Zachariah's underlings. Isn't anyone else kinda interested in these things? Or is that just me?)

Another thing I really would like to see in fics, and this is the hurt/comfort fan in me talking, is fics where Dean for some reason or another has to give in to Micheal, allow the angel to use him as a vessel, and then the aftermath of that as Sam and/or Cas take care of what's left behind of Dean once Micheal leaves.

Or you know, Sam realizing that he can't hold off Lucifer forever, so he decides to summon Zachariah, in the hope that the angels will at least make sure that Lucifer can't get to him. And Dean then having to save Sam from the angels and Lucifer.

(and is it a bad thing that I really really prefer SPN genfic, you know, fics that explore Dean and Sam's brotherly bond, without seeing something romantic in it? I just love family fics.)

Ah well, once I feel better I really need to start writing that post about how SPN is superior to Brand New Day, for many many reasons, but the one coming foremost to my thoughts would be that Kripke manages to let the Winchesters lose battles (and possibly even entire wars) without ever even once, making them look like losers. Even when Sam and Dean lost their dad, allowed the gates of hell to be opened, lost Dean to the Hellhounds and accidentally started the apocalypse, they still never ever looked like losers. When they lose fights, it's because the bad guys are just that smart, that good at looking ahead and manipulating the brothers that it becomes worth it, seeing the Winchesters fight them, because you know, that the Winchesters losses will only make them try harder to do the right thing.

Whereas with BND, they've turned Peter Parker into such a total utter loser that by now, all I want to see him do, is to be shot in the head and then left behind in an alley where his rotten corpse can turn into a Skrull. But I guess that's too much to ask for?

I agree with everything you just said! Haha...I also don't mind Dean/Cas when it's more about the friendship and stuff. Most of the time though, I don't bother clicking on Dean/Cas fics, just because I find that no one really does it how I want to see it done.

And, much like you, I really just like SPN gen fics. I like explorations of character - it's really what kept me reading fanfiction in the first place when I discovered it's existence as a kid - and it's still why I read it today. It's also why I love SPN so much: it's one giant exploration of character.

As for Jimmy, I actually do think he's dead now and that Castiel was brought back from the dead alone in that body...but I guess I have nothing to base that on.

And you are right about the losing thing...I think Supernatural is the only show where the heroes constantly lose, yet you still think of them as kick-ass warriors.

I agree with the first poster in that I believe Jimmy is dead and Cas was given his body back or one just like it so that Dean would be familiar with him.

That said, I have read several Cas/Dean fics that deal with Jimmy's consent. (And the issue with Ruby was dealt with when we found out the body she was in was empty--the soul gone to its reward--at least for me).

I too prefer the developing of the Cas/Dean relationship over fics that have them in a relationship already or are just PWP. I really prefer it when Dean is hesitant--the character is so blatantly heterosexual that you know he has to be a bit freaked.

I'm addicted to deancastiel. Tons of great fics on it.

And you gave me a tiny baby bunny with the Dean after Michael possessed him idea....

Glad you're feeling better. :)

I really want Sam and Dean to make up, and I think they will.. eventually. At least I hope so. :/ But yes, I have sooo much love for Cas this season. XD I love him!

i really see where you're coming from with the fic aspect -- i wish the show would explore castiel/jimmy as a character more. i know we had 'the rapture' but that felt more like a hunt than anything else, with jimmy completely unaffected by castiel's use of his body. after seeing raphael's vessel i think it would be really interesting to see how dean reacts to that and kind of, the progression of him and castiel's friendship because of it? i'm not sure if i'm articulating myself very well, but basically i lovelovelove misha collins but i wish they did more with castiel's character than have him for smiting people and comic relief every now and then. i know the show is primarily about sam and dean, but now misha's a regular it would be really nice to see some actual character development in castiel, not just the times he's with dean. blehh. i love te show so much no matter what it does, to be honest :D

I love Dean/Cas fics, although I lean more towards friendship/developing relationship with plot. But then, I imagine that eventually I'll get a little more picky; I did that with Spike/Buffy, too. I'd read about anything as long as it was generally well written, and then I got picky.
