Blue pentagram

So close...

I was in a meeting this morning with a woman who had PLAID EYEGLASSES. And Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) is tweeting about Jim Rockford’s car being for sale (which not only makes me daydream about getting my hands on an Impala, but let us not forget the Winchester emergency separation plan - first hotel in the book, register under Jim Rockford).

How am I supposed to think about anything that’s NOT Supernatural under these circumstances?

Fic: But if you try sometimes

This isn't actually a new fic - I was messing with my tags and I realized I had posted this one directly to spnspiration instead of just posting a link, so I decided to repost to my own journal just to make sure it doesn't go away.

But if you try sometimes
Length: About 1100 words
Rating: PG-13 for language
Characters: Dean Winchester, omniscient narrator
Spoilers: Through Bad Day at Black Rock. This is an AU of that episode, where Dean did not save Sam after Cold Oak, but it won't make sense unless you've seen BDaBR.
Synopsis: A different day at Black Rock. But it's still bad.
Notes: This was written to fill the omniscient POV square on my spnspiration bingo card, except I'm a moron because I don't actually have that square. Dammit. I guess it goes in my free space. Or can I pretend I never got slam poetry? Cause I'm never gonna write slam poetry. (ETA... Radical revision! Woot!) Title is from the Rolling Stones song "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

The end of this story is sitting in front of you. All you have to do is pick up that napkin. But to understand what you see beneath the napkin, first I have to take you back to the beginning.

Something completely different

As we enter week one of A Month Without New Episodes, let's talk about something completely unrelated to Supernatural. I've been re-listening to one of my favorite podcasts, The Monster Hunters. Yes, I know you're saying "that actually sounds like it might be completely related to Supernatural," but it's not. They have nothing in common.

It's a charming, nutty British comedy podcast about two men who, yes, do hunt monsters, but they do it in England in the 1970s. And they're not brothers. One is a quiet, kind, scholarly professor. In the second episode, he finds himself attracted to a woman for the first time since a year ago, when his wife was killed by a monster. Sadly, the new woman is bitten by a werewolf and insists on killing herself with his silver-bullet-laden gun. The other is a fighter, a drinker (especially Scotch), and a ladies man. He drives a Jensen, which is an old British sportscar I've never heard of, and has an ex-wife whose maiden name is Winchester.

Oh, wait a minute...
