Fanfic Wednesday: Some Destiel and Some Sabriel

Hello shippers. Over the Collective’s Supernatural week we’ve shipped Destiel. Lots of it. Now, on our last day of our celebration of all things Winchester, I’m going to leave you with just a couple more SPN fanfics. Next week, I promise some variety. In fact, I may be going aboard a new ship…but more on that later.

Rec #1: Are You There Dean Winchester? It’s Me…God

Author: BunnyMaCool

Word Count: 33,000

Pairing: Dean/Castiel

Warnings: Bit angsty, lot awesome

The Premise

Author’s Summary: Dean Winchester has grown used to God dicking around in his life the last couple years. But this crap? This takes the CAKE … or pie, rather. Now he’s been thrown a whole new curve-ball. The kind that has ended the Civil War in Heaven … but resulted in Raphael taking over, and hunting for Dean’s ass on a silver platter. Not to mention dealing with Balthazar acting like a self-righteous prick, Sam having some big damn epiphany on his big brother’s sexuality, and Cas eying him up like he’s the world’s juiciest cheeseburger. All that mixed with the chance to fix it all and set everything to rights … but only if Dean is willing to sacrifice himself. Again. Seriously, if he ever meets that bastard God he’s gonna- … oh hey, Chuck! What are you doing here?

My Thoughts

It’s not often that the Collectiva Diva hits up a fic before I do, but when she told me about this one, I promised to make it this week’s rec. Now, I’ve read so much Destiel over the years that it’s hard for a fic to stick in my head. This one did. Bunnymacool takes a familiar trope (you’ll know what it is as soon as  you read it) and makes it her own. The inclusion of Chuck was a stroke of genius, and I was squeeing and crying and swooning by the end. This one is definitely worth the read, and be sure to hit up the sequel too.

My Rating

Solid A. The writing was well done, the pacing was excellent, and the author made me laugh and cry in all the right ways.

Rec #2: Be My Savior

Don’t own this, but it’s adorable.

Author: Jessebee

Word Count: 12,000

Pairing: Sam/Gabriel with hints of Dean/Castiel

Warnings: There are schmexy times. NSFW

The Premise

While protecting the Winchesters, archangel Gabriel stakes a stake to the chest. Sam saves Gabriel’s life, but the consequences are little more bizarre than anything he could have predicted. It’s a binding fic with a little bit of wing!kink thrown in (the Collectiva Diva will love that).

My Thoughts

This is my first time aboard the Sabriel ship, and I have to admit that I get why the two are paired together quite often. I might…dare I say it…have a new ship. Just a little one. But it’s cute, and Gabriel has always been a favorite character (BRING HIM BACK, KRIPKE). Anyway, what I really appreciate about this fic is the portrayal of Gabriel. Gabriel is a trickster, an archangel of fury and justice, and overall not a very nice person. He makes no apologies for who he is, and I love that the author didn’t try to soften him up.

My Rating

B+. I loved Gabriel, I loved Sam, but I really think it could have been longer. Or is that just me being selfish?

So here you go. Some more fanfiction to suck away your time. You’re welcome.
