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!

    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)

    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.

    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

    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.

    Re: PDF? (Anonymous) Expand
    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.



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