Fic Masterpost: "In the Weeds" [Dean/Cas, AU - NC-17] - written for <lj site="livejournal.com" user=

TITLE: In the Weeds
AUTHOR: [livejournal.com profile] nanoochka
PAIRING(S): Dean/Cas, references to Sam/Ruby
RATING: NC-17
WORDCOUNT: 40,300
WARNINGS: Food porn, misuse of Irish accents
DISCLAIMER: Supernatural and all associated content is the property of Eric Kripke and The CW. No infringement intended.

SUMMARY: “Dean knew, from the minute he laid eyes on Chef Castiel MacCarthy, the day would come that he would have to kidnap the man and dump the body in the darkest, dirtiest crack den in Ireland. Given that this was Dublin city, it wouldn’t be hard to find.”





AUTHOR'S NOTES: There’s a certain sense of pride that comes with being able to say you finished writing a DCBB challenge with food poisoning, and maybe some pithy line about how it came in with a bang and out with sounds of misery from the bathroom floor.

Fortunately, the many days, weeks and indeed months leading up to the completion of this story were much more pleasant, and I’m as happy to say that I finished it as I am to thank the wonderful people who helped me (read: threatened at gunpoint) get there. They are, in some semblance of chronology, The Beatles and Zep for providing me with some semblance of sanity during marathon writing sessions; [livejournal.com profile] fossarian, who not only encouraged me to develop the idea so many months ago but graciously rolled with the unexpected developments along the way; [livejournal.com profile] glorormeien for letting me argue with her about food; [livejournal.com profile] qthelights and [livejournal.com profile] obstinatrix for the invaluable cheerleading, feedback and reassurance; [livejournal.com profile] cautionzombies and [livejournal.com profile] mclachlan for the truly outstanding betas and eleventh-hour workshopping; and finally [livejournal.com profile] daggomus_prime, who I didn’t expect to be partners in crime with again so soon, but was surely a twist of fate, for being endlessly enthusiastic, inspiring and delightful, and for having far more integrity than I thought was possible for one so small. ;)

Last but not least, a huge round of applause to [livejournal.com profile] hils and [livejournal.com profile] oddlyfamiliar for their many hours of hard work and dedication to pulling this challenge off without a hitch for yet another year, as well as being far more gracious, understanding and flexible than I probably deserved. Thanks for making it so that this story could still see the light of day.

To everyone else, I hope you enjoy the story you’re about to read!

Here we go again.

I know, I know. I've been terribly lax about journal updates lately, but I have a good reason - several good reasons, even!

Firstly, until last week I was hard at work on my chapter [livejournal.com profile] spn_redemption which y'all should go check out here, along with [livejournal.com profile] zatnikatel and [livejournal.com profile] dotfic's lovely episodes before and after. It's nice to see so many people responding to the project in such a positive way, since it's pretty much the only thing keeping my fandom-related spirits up these days without any Cas to go around.

Otherwise, my other big project has been for, yes - wait for it - [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, working once again with the talented and amazing [livejournal.com profile] daggomus_prime. Our posting date is next Monday, October 31, and so far I have once again managed to blow out the minimum wordcount, because apparently I don't know when to STFU. I'm excited about the story, however, as it features Dean and Cas in the setting of the modern-day Irish restaurant industry for fun, hijinks and plenty o' sex. So for the sake of tradition, I give you the progress meter:


32000 / 20000 (160.00%)


I can't wait to share it with everyone, so keep an eye out for that in one week's time! I hope no one thinks I've forgotten about LJ...

I need to work on my optimism.

So this is where we are now with [info]spn_j2_bigbang - 325% over the original minimum wordcount and still going full steam ahead. I know it doesn't look like there's been much progress since the last time I whinged, but the last week has mostly been spent cleaning things up and working on [info]deancasbigbang with [info]fossarian; yes, I realize this qualifies me as insane. It's actually coming along quite well, though, and it'll be interesting to see where we're at with it when the draft deadline rolls around in August. We're excited to share it with you.

But instead of talking about how fucked I am, let's pretend that everything is beautiful and nothing hurts and this will be posted in all its 100k+ glory on August 24, yes?

85000 / 20000 (425.00%)


In the meantime, you should really go read
[info]prettify 's own entry to J2BB, All Your Yellow Brick Roads, because it is truly a piece of art and puts mine to shame. Seriously, I cried like a wee babby, so be prepared.

Let the screaming and rending of clothes begin.

mood: excited excited

So today [info]fossarian and I signed up for [info]deancasbigbang under our [info]wipper_snappers alias. Anyone care to place bets on how long it'll be before we start to lose our shit? Me neither.

Anyway, this promises to be a fun challenge this year, with boatloads of super talented artists and writers on board. You should sign up, too! This is a great opportunity to get that long fic you've been thinking about done.
