fic challenges!
curled up with a book
Hi, everybody!

I got back from Egypt on Sunday, and will be putting up a post about it soonish (as soon as I can figure out which of the 275 pictures I took - in five days! - you'd want to see most).

In the meantime, I'm pleased to say that I'm participating in this year's round of spn_j2_bigbang! My story is called "(Chances Are This Is) How John Winchester Got His Groove Back" and here's the summary with which I lured the wonderful artist glitter_noire into my web:

This is a hetstravaganza AU! We start off with some Mary/John porn (with bonus Trickster voyeurism!) and then Azazel kills Mary and the Trickster steps in, because he can't let a hot blonde just die. So she's reincarnated as Jess. Sam goes to Stanford with John's okay and Dean's blessing, and with the understanding that he would hunt with them on breaks. He meets Jess and decides he wants to bring her "home" for the summer - and that's when she and John meet and the Mary in her wakes up. John, meanwhile, has found out that it was a demon who killed Mary, and he sends Dean on a quest for more information (the "five states in five days" trip mentioned in "The Kids Are Alright"); Dean hunts and hooks up and finds the truth. And then it all gets messy. (Light on the angst, but not exactly a funny story either - sort of season 1-ish in tone.) (Also, a little experimental in form, but that might not last after my lovely beta is done with it.)

(It's okay if you made a face while reading that. When deirdre_c was in town, I was trying to summarize the story for the lovely fangirls who'd gathered together, and they all made the "oh, honey, no" face at me, which is kind of how I looked when I was writing the damn thing.)

Oh! Also, I urge everyone to sign up for spn_summergen, because it's a really fun and low-key challenge, and you get an awesome fic written just for you!

How are you all doing?

I love this summary - I mentally checked it off as a "to-read" when I saw the summaries, even before I knew who wrote it. Seriously cannot wait to read these stories, but I just love AU early season stories and am so looking forward to yours!

Aw, that's so nice to hear! Thank you!

Whee! I hope you had an excellent time in Egypt! I can't wait to see your pics. I'm in New Orleans for the week and now my new picture-taking benchmark is 275. I probably won't get there, tho. Been here three days and have taken maybe...40. *g*

I did have an excellent time - I hope you do too!

Can't wait for the pics of Egypt!!!

And I think your summary sounds pretty awesome. *g*

Welcome back! Can't wait to hear about your trip.

The face I made upon reading your summary was an "AWESOME!!!!!!!" face. I'm really looking forward to reading this! :)

Was it THIS awesome face?

Thank you so much!

I am! Would you be available to take a look at it? Em has been sick, and I don't want to hound her for the beta. If you can't, no worries - just let me know!
