So apparently Supernatural is all that's pushing my LJ post button these days. Well, it beats a month of silence, right?

Spoilers! )

Maybe next I'll post about something relevant to my life! Or, you know, ANYTHING. My posting fluctuates at the best of times, which the last few months have not been. But things are starting to look up and feel more stable again, and I don't think the relief of that has quite finished sinking in yet. When it does, maybe it will bring with it the energy to start posting more often than twice a month.

Wow, Supernatural! That was really impressive!

Spoilers! And sarcasm. )

Ugh. I can't believe this is what I decided to make one of my increasingly-sporadic posts about. I'm going to bed.

Supernatural. For, I think, the last time.

('Course, that's what I said about Torchwood after "Exit Wounds.")

finale spoilers. um, don't click if you don't want your squee harshed. )
catslash: (wtf is this shit?)

Aaaand then I didn't post for a week and a half, oops.

In honor of tonight's Supernatural finale, I'm going to make an effort to pull together some of the thoughts I've been having this season - for the last season and a half, really - and finish by trying to justify why I still watch this show.

cut for: your friends list, spoilers for seasons four and five, and negativity. If you don't want to read negative thoughts on the show hours before the season finale, I recommend not clicking. )

(And if you disagree with every single thing I have just said, I think we can still find common ground with this question: What the fuck are they going to do for season six?!)

Brief thoughts on tonight's Supernatural. )

Aw, look at my icon. Remember when the show was about a couple guys hunting things and saving people, and their biggest problem was the Yellow-Eyed Demon? Good times.

I feel like I should make a great big Supernatural post, but I just - it made me tired. All the stuff I could say - I don't wanna. However, tiny spoiler. )

Doctor Who, Supernatural - the SJA finale story better be more upbeat or I will scour myself with rocks.

V. short look at Supernatural; I expended all my critical power for the day on SJA.

one vague spoiler and one tiny more specific spoiler for 5x06, I Believe the Children are Our Future )

Overall, this was a genuinely good ep that has me feeling more interested in the show again. I hope it stays that way.
The final, polished version for linking to communities.

TITLE: "Old Road" (crossover with the Watchmen movieverse)
AUTHOR: Cathryn ([ profile] catslash)
WORD COUNT: Approximately 2600.
RATING: PG-13; genfic
CHARACTERS: John Winchester, the Comedian
SUMMARY: Two of the defining moments of John Winchester's life come to him courtesy of the same man.
NOTES: This started as a commentfic response to a prompt issued by [ profile] apiphile, but quickly took on a life of its own. Thanks to her for the initial idea, and to everyone on my flist who offered comments, suggestions, and canon fact-checks.
DISCLAIMER: Supernatural was created by Eric Kripke; Watchmen was created by Alan Moore; and the song I borrowed my title from, "The Times They Are A-Changing," was written by Bob Dylan. I take no credit and make no money from any of these works.

SPOILERS for the Watchmen movie and Supernatural's pilot episode.

John Winchester lied about his age to enlist in 1970. )

So [ profile] apiphile is hosting a kissing fic meme, which you should all go post in, and she asked, um - someone else entirely for John Winchester/Comedian.

I poached it and immediately fucked it up, because it failed to be slash. Yeah. that's right. I wrote something that isn't slash. Quick, get your smelling salts!

So here it is, a hastily written Watchmen/Supernatural crossover ficlet in which canons mesh almost too well and also I make no promises about the Comedian's characterization, since I'm not as familiar with WM as I usually like to be before I try my hand at fic. But for commentfic, that's allowed.

John Winchester is surprised as hell to open his eyes and discover that he's not dead. )
catslash: (yes! wait . . . - credit I have no idea)

So! Way the hell back in July, when I was innocently seeking distraction from the agonizing wait for the Doctor Who finale and blissfully unaware that said agonizing wait would be the best part of the entire episode (oh yeah, I'm still mad), I asked for crossover challenge requests to keep myself occupied.

. . . no, this is not a second round. Not right now. Maybe some other time. I was going to put the results all up in one post, but, uh, I forgot. Until now. I got almost all of them done, excepting the ones that were requests for something I was already trying to write at the time, and also I never want to write a Dogma crossover again, GAIL. ;) But there are still twelve random snippets right here, presented in no particular order. Spoiler warnings or whathaveyou in the cuts, though the spoilers that were new then are kinda old now.

House/Dead and Breakfast - See, this is why Thirteen never talks about herself. The simplest questions are landmines. )


House/Torchwood - Chase looked up, and it was only then that he became aware of the stymied silence. No one was throwing out diagnoses, or even arguing. They were just looking at him. )


Iron Man/Dogma - It was in Illinois, somewhere, doing . . . oh, something about PR, or something. Hell if Tony knows, it was a decade ago and he was drunk the whole time anyway. But he'd snuck out to some little dive strip joint. )


Dexter/Doctor Who - The first clue that this situation isn't quite right is the sedative failing to take effect. )


House/Supernatural, spoilers for House season four finale - Jo's been working in bars since she was sixteen, and of course she spent time in Harvelle's even before that, and she knows all the signs of a man who wants a drink. )


Dogma/Pirates of the Carribean, AU on account of me kind of forgetting about Dead Man's Chest, oops - Jack Sparrow has met God. )


Red Dwarf/Torchwood - Owen couldn't wait until Jack moved on from this overprotective crap. )


Iron Man/Torchwood/Jeeves and Wooster - The Junior Ganymede is, as I have told Mr Wooster and previous employers, a club for gentlemens' personal gentlemen. I have never mentioned, however, that it extends further than one might think, and that said personal gentlemen are not always gentlemen. )


Boondock Saints/Torchwood, part one of a duplicate request - He sent cards and gifts for Christmas and Owen's birthdays. He never heard back, but it didn't surprise him. He highly doubted that Marianne had ever taught Owen about writing thank you notes. )


Boondock Saints/Torchwood part the second, which is actually an AU of the first, just for fun - Smecker is not shocked by this. There isn't a cop in the city who wouldn't buy the Saints a round of beer if given half a chance; after this, they'll probably settle for buying drinks for whoever helped.  )


House/Dogma - But this kid - there was just something about her that drew the eye. Cuddy couldn't even begin to explain what; she just kept glancing back up to watch the girl play. )


Iron Man/Dead and Breakfast - Tony Stark blinked several times, dazed and vaguely aware that he was probably concussed. He'd have to do something about the helmet's design. It was supposed to prevent concussions, not cause them. )


Dogma/Supernatural - Plus it gets Bartleby out of his face for an evening, seriously, the two of them are more closely and irrevocably entwined than any other beings on the planet, but that doesn't mean they don't wanna just find a way to kill each other sometimes. )

I may have to do another round of this, I think, with a new list. I had a lot of fun with it before, and a couple of these might even have enough weight to turn them into proper fics.

And the other meme, as promised. This one ganked from [ profile] fiareynne, and probably the last one that will catch my interest for like the next five years.

Name a series and I'll tell you the character(s) I would:

1. Bake cupcakes for:
2. Trust with the keys to my car:
3. Put thumbtacks on the chair thereof:
4. Have a crush on:
5. Pack up and leave if they moved next door:
6. Vote for President:
7. Pick as my partner in a buddy movie:
8. Pair up:
9. Vote off the island and into the volcano:
10. Wheedle into fixing my MP3 player:

ETA: Fictitious fandoms, please. Characters with actual personalities instead of fan-projected ones are a lot easier to deal with.

[ profile] americanleaguer and [ profile] offspeed both did "'If I write it down and stare at it, maybe I will be forced to actually finish these fics" posts while I was sleeping, so i figured I'd join the party. I've been so unproductive ficwise the last couple of weeks.

Cut because I decided to throw in snippets for fun. In which I write a lot of damn crossovers, and Torchwood and Supernatural feature heavily. And are NOT crossed over. )

Way too many fics going on there. It beats the zero I had before, though, and I still heart SPN for being the fandom that jumpstarted my fic muse after like two years of silence. And Torchwood for keeping it going. Also, what's up with me being the freakin' crossover queen over here?

Also, I'm probably gonna pull together all my non-recent-past 'verse drabbles to post to communities at some point today, so if you see a "new" fic post from me, don't get excited, because there's nothing new in it. Well, unless you missed my drabble spamming phase.
