1) The lovely ladies behind winchestmidwest have a Kickstarter campaign going for an exciting 200th Episode Thank You Flyover, which really, just screams us and SPN to me. I think it's a lovely idea and it makes me happy to be part of this fandom. :'D Check it out, and help back it if you're so inclined. We're almost 1/3 of the way to the minimum and it's only been a few hours! All extra proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society in Kim Manners's name.
2) This is a short, lovely fic by quadrant_of_sky that's quiet and understated and just beautifully controlled. And its ending is perfect. It reads like it was written for me, which I hope means you will like it too. (Of course, I realized after I'd read it twice that LOL IT ACTUALLY WAS WRITTEN FOR ME. XD) It's under 1000 words of excellent Dean POV S9 fic--which isn't underhanded, crazy, dramatic, morally suspect, mindfucky, hysterical, or grotesquely tragic or fucked up in any way. Which is impressive for S9 fic imho but so, so fitting here.
OKAY I'M GONE.
