Because it's Dean's birthday.
I regret nothing.
Last night I was chatting with some lovely people on hoodie_time, and I tried to find this old fic I'd read about like, a poisonous porcupine (or something??). I did not succeed, but I did find my archived Firefox bookmarks from 2009/2010. That is, I found a link to every SPN fic I read when I was first getting into SPN fanodm, including about 30(!!!) fics I listed under "recs." I even descriptively retitled all the links, so I'd remember what the fic was about (somewhat less successfully than I probably intended, XP). A sample:
dean's warm socks by mimblexwimble (sound adorable? yeah, look at the author and THEN decide whether that is actually going to be adorable. do not make my mistake! D:)
ethereal tree!Winchesters by desertport (this is a much more accurate description than the first one)
crabfishing dean by janissa11 (also quite accurate!)
Is there a dedicated nostalgia soundtrack? There should totally be a dedicated nostalgia soundtrack. So if my next batch of recs is titled "old fics, some of which are written by people who haven't even been IN this fandom in half a decade," uh, that's why. XD
In keeping with the vibrato nostalgia pealing through the Internets, tomorrow is this journal's ninth anniversary: Its attention has spanned three main fandoms and several minor ones (the most recent, longest, and most prolific of these being, of course, Supernatural). It's been well worth every single minute. And the friendships have been worth far more than that. I love all of you, from fandoms past and present. ♥
