2. embroiderama remixed a Lisa/Dean Smith (ish) fic I wrote last December, titled When You Wake Up to This (The Sleepwalking Remix), which, it should go without saying, ALSO BEST.

The rhythmic, understated language of this piece is just to die for. Absolutely read this, guys. <3333333333
3. And I wrote one, too:
Title: Going Once (chicagoland remix)
Genre: horror/dark!fic, outsider!POV, alternate timeline mid/late S5
Characters: AT!Dean, OC
Word Count: ~2700
Warnings: thematic slavery/bondage, implied prostitution, alcoholism
Summary: At the tail end of 2009 Houston, Texas becomes the third most populous city in the United States. Elsewhere, the population of Chicago is 36, and one of them is Death.
Notes: This is a remix of Going Once by tattooeddevil (which you definitely want to read first!), written for kamikazeremix 2012. This is the "D-side," if you'll permit the awful pun. Chicagoland inspired by snickfic and her fic, The Only Cure for Grief. Special thanks to tattooeddevil for offering herself up to my ~machinations. <3!
Three bodies, two lifeboats.

Instead, my (visual) review of SPN 8x01:
