SUMMARY: The small, California town of Cardiff-by-the-Sea attracts millions of surfers a year, ranging from amateurs to world-class professionals. Although tourists constantly populate the area, Sam Campbell—née Winchester—renowned author of supernatural suspense novels and surf enthusiast, has called Cardiff home ever since the violent death of his girlfriend, Jessica. When he meets Castiel Novak, an enigmatic newcomer with a mysterious past, the two strike up an easy friendship that revolves around surfing and their mutual need for privacy from the outside world. The arrival of Sam’s brother, Dean, following a messy divorce under hazy circumstances, promises to complete their little circle of misfits and social pariahs. Sam thinks that life for once can’t get any better, surrounded by the people he trusts most in the world. Much to his dismay, it quickly becomes obvious that there is no love lost between Dean and Cas, though Sam can’t begin to guess why. As time progresses, he begins to get the feeling that the two of them know each other from somewhere else, and that their past might have everything to do with why they chose to escape to Cardiff in the first place.

AUTHOR’S NOTES: I literally have a team of people I have to thank for making the completion of this novel—and I use that term deliberately—possible. What started off as a light-hearted fic idea I shared with [info]fossarian in January of this year grew into something bigger than I could have imagined, and for various reasons I think it’s safe to say it has extended past the definition of a mere story. I would have never crossed the finish line without [info]fossarian ’s encouragement and support, so this is happily dedicated to her. I must also give my sincere thanks to [info]nyoka and [info]qthelights for their amazing work as betas, along with [info]gloromeien for, in addition to almost eleven years of friendship, the many late-night phone calls and bouts of insecurity for a fandom in which she doesn’t participate. Mad props also to [info]cautionzombies and [info]mclachlan for being the bestest alphas a girl could ask for. Last but not least—[info]daggomus_prime . I couldn’t have asked for a better artist to partner with on this story, and your enthusiasm and passion for the work made reaching the end possible. I can’t even begin to express my love for the artwork itself, and don’t think I need to; it’s pretty damn clear how phenomenal it is, and I’m proud to have it associated with this project. Finally, thanks so much to the mods for all their hard work, since I know it's not appreciated nearly enough.

Well, it's official. I'm fucking crackers.

Jul. 29th, 2011 | 03:01 pm

... by which I mean I've gone round the bend. I've never actually fucked or attempted to fuck the other kind of cracker.

Anyway. I finished the second-to-last chapter of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang entry last night, which brings the current wordcount into the six figures. Observe:


103000 / 20000 (515.00%)

It would surprise me not at all if this thing caps at 120k, which is a far cry from the 60 or 70k project I anticipated at the start. By comparison, that would have been a walk through the bloody park, as opposed to writing challenge during which I could have brought a pregnancy to term. In better news, I leave for Texas in less than three weeks, which means imminent hangouts with [livejournal.com profile] cautionzombies and [livejournal.com profile] daggomus_prime. That might actually be too much awesomeness for one person to handle. On the other hand, I might be frothing at the mouth with insanity by then.

I wish I could post an excerpt of this thing for y'all, just so there's some context for what the hell I've been nattering on about for months, but sadly that would be against the rules. But there's less than a month left to wait!

Crunch time, chickens.

Barely more than a month left to go. Shit just got real. (Or will it get really real in 3000 more words?)

97,000 / 20,000 (485.00%)

[livejournal.com profile] prettify's "All Your Yellow Brick Roads" EPUB (for <lj site="live

Jul. 14th, 2011 | 10:13 am

Hi all,

Because my response to
[info]prettify's submission to [info]spn_j2_bigbang, All Your Yellow Brick Roads, is still something akin to a chicken running around with its head cut off (in a good way!), I thought I'd share, with her permission, the EPUB version of the story I created for use on my e-reader. Those using an iPad or iPhone to read won't struggle too much with the PDF, but other e-readers either won't allow PDF zoom or, like the Kobo, do it quite poorly, and require a lot of panning back and forth if you prefer to read text larger than a baby ant.

With the EPUB format, which I think is supported by just about every type of e-reader out there, you can make the text bigger or smaller, and navigate the document by page or by chapter, which is handy if you become lost or want to go back to a specific part. The only apology I have to make in advance is that the metadata got a little screwed up in the conversion process, so that some of the paragraphs are broken up weirdly. It won't distract you, I promise; it'll just look like
[info]prettify really likes her some short paragraphs. :P Hopefully this will soon be available to download from the fic masterpost as well.

Download here!
