Masterpost - (Chances Are This Is) How John Winchester Got His Groove Back [Het; NC-17]
the arch of the eyebrows gives it away

Hi, everybody!

Here's my contribution for 2010's spn_j2_bigbang challenge (thank you, mods, for again making this so stress-free on the administrative side of things!). It's called "(Chances Are This Is) How John Winchester Got His Groove Back," and it's got a multiplicity of het ships: John/Mary, Dean/OFCs, Sam/Jess, John/Jess, Dean/Pamela, Dean/Jamie, Dean/Carmen, and Dean/Nancy. It's rated NC-17, and clocks in at just over 27,000 words.

There's a lot going on in this story - lots of ideas that didn't seem big enough for separate fics of their own, but that came together for this one narrative. If you click on the story, you'll find the following:

  • Trickster voyeurism - and lots of porn

  • hunters we've met or heard of only briefly, like Caleb, Jefferson, and Rufus

  • an AU in which Kate and Adam don't exist ("Jump the Shark")

  • an AU in which the Trickster stays the Trickster and isn't revealed to be Gabriel ("Changing Channels")

  • an AU in which Sam goes to Stanford with John's okay and Dean's blessing

  • one take on Dean's "five states in five days" trip ("The Kids Are Alright")

  • an AU in which Deanna and Samuel died on a hunt unrelated to Azazel ("In the Beginning")

  • corrections for (hopefully) all the mistakes I made in Sunshine State regarding Stanford's academic calendar

  • an SPN spin on the cheesetastic movie Chances Are starring the inimitable RDJ (hence the John/Jess mentioned above)

  • a story in thirteen parts with six different narrators in a sort of mirrored format

  • a story sweated over by not one, not two, but three lovely betas - janissa11, girl_wonder, and musesfool. Ladies, take a bow, because your efforts were heroic. (Though, of course, I kept tinkering even after their clever editorial fingers had finished, so all mistakes are mine and should not reflect on them.)

  • a story with awesome illustrations by glitter_noire!


  • Happy reading!

    That is just lovely of you to say - thank you so much!

    Oh man, this looks awesome. I wonder how much I can get read before work.

    Hee, it'll still be here when you get back!

    The masses have spoken. Your work and art suck! Enjoy. (http://spnpermanon.livejournal.com/5327.html?thread=19847887#t19847887)

    Wow, you're a massive asshole. CONGRATS!

    Okay, 'the masses'?? That meme is like a circle jerk between four sad nerds. Come on. And you are a complete tool bag for leaving that comment here. Even if you didn't like it, when was the last time you (any of you) got off your fucking ass and wrote a twenty seven thousand word, thirteen chapter story? Jesus.

    You made me choke on my tea. Love this comment.

    Hahahaha, thank you for confirming my gut feeling, which was to ignore the whole sad mess entirely.

    Wow you're a total bitch. I hope karma bites you in the ass.

    Things like that just make me very mad. There's no reason for someone to act that way. Hope you ignored their stupidity.

    Wow- i wasn't going to read this fic because i don't think it would be my cup of tea (no offense to the lovely author but i'm just more of a slash fan) But seeing as how the cowardly idiots who post at spnperanon have had so much to say about it- i think the story is bound to be awesome so i think i'm going to read it now. I looked at that meme once and was disgusted to see all my favourtie stories and authors bashed. It seems that the more rude people are about a piece of work- the more jealous they are, so the more amazing your work probabaly is!

    I'm looking forward to reading this fic- and i think the art work is really beautiful and haunting.

    I am so grateful to all the wonderful writers and artists who contribute to making the summer so much brighter. Thank you so much for all your wonderful hard work and please ignor the few sad idiots at that meme, and keep sharing your beautiful talent with the rest of us <3

    Hugs xx

    when was the last time you (any of you) got off your fucking ass and wrote a twenty seven thousand word, thirteen chapter story? Jesus.< THIS!!

    I tend to stay away from HET but I am planning on sitting down to read this tonight.

    No offense taken - I knew going into this that this story would not be likely to have many readers.

    This experience has been unpleasant, but it certainly hasn't affected my plans to stay in this fandom and produce work that I like and am proud of - I hope no one else was scared off, because that would be a loss for all of us.

    Thank you!

    Woo!!! First out of the gate! Go YOU! Just from reading the description, it sounds like you had a ball with this. YAY! ♥

    Hee, I did, I did! Thank you, honey!

    Hey, there! Would you mind if I make an electronic copy of your story? Since getting sick, it's easier for me to read longer stories that way.

    It won't be anything fancy - most likely just a .pdf. But you'd certainly get a copy to use however you see fit. ;)

    Please, feel free - if you'd like me to make a pdf of the text only, I could do that for you, most likely tonight.

    No worries. I'm almost done. ;)

    Behold the powers of not being able to write but sitting in front of a computer anyway... *face palms*

    I'm not reading anything until I've finished my sememster coursework (probably!) but I just wanted to say THANKS upfront - this fic looks *fantastic* and I'm already squirming to read it! Well done you for finishing.

    Good luck with the rest of your semester! And thank you for the kind words!

    Yay! You posted! CONGRATS! <3

    Only thanks to you, honey!

    I'm totally looking forward to reading this!

    That is so nice to hear - thank you!

    So much win! I love alternating POV when it's done well like this. Am full of glee we got Mary/Jess and I love what you did with it.

    Awesome read. Thank you!

    Aw, you're wonderful to say so! Thank you so much!

    *snags the PDF*

    Thank you for sharing. Will read later when I have time to breathe. Anything by you is definitely worth savouring.

    That is so lovely of you to say - I do hope it lives up to your expectations!

    (And breathe!)

    I'd love a copy of the pdf. Can it be uploaded again?

    Yup! Just need to boot up the computer it's on - I should have it for you soon.

    thank you (morgan dawn not logged in)

    would you have a pdf you could email me too please? (the link seems to be dead again) I know I'm late to the game but my old laptop ate the folder I had with all of 2010's bigbang fics in it.

    thanks

    winnie

    Sure - I just need to find it again, and then I can upload it for you!
