Jen: DARLING LIL NUGGET

gift for wetsammy

Title: All Your Curves and Your Edges
Giftee: wetsammy
Gifter: dugindeep
Pairing: Jensen/Jared (mentions of past Jared/Matt Cohen)
Words: 9000
Rating/Warnings: NC-17/murder; sociopath!Jensen; top!Jensen/bottom!Jared; descriptions of dead bodies; gaslighting
Summary: Jensen is a professional. He’s been writing about murder for nearly two decades now, crafting all sorts of stories where good guys prevail, but with every book, he’s learned more and more about how the bad guys cover their tracks.
Notes: I tried running with your gaslighting prompt, even read up on the movie the phrase is based on, and went with a sort of AU in that vein. Happy Belated Holidays!
CATSIEL

Gift for deans-jiggly-pudding

Title: Turn of the Year
Exchange: spn_j2_xmas
Giftee: [Bad username: deans-jiggly-pudding]
Gifter: kototyph
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel, Dean Winchester & Sam Winchester
Word Count: 3.5k
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon, Hunter!Dean, Witch!Castiel, Winter Solstice, Yule, Longest Night Rituals, The Author Has Read Terry Pratchett
Notes: So sorry to be a little late with your gift, love, but hoping you like it! Leaning heavily on the creature!fic part of your prompt for this one.
Summary:

Fifteen minutes later, Dean gets back in the car with empty hands and ice in his fucking eyebrows. “Get the map out,” he says through chattering teeth, sticking numb fingers under his arms.

Sam holds up the battered 1995 Rand MacNally they keep in the side pocket turned to a page of uninterrupted green. “We’re going to die,” he announces.

Gift for Cherie_morte

Title: Machine Heart
Gifter: quickreaver
Giftee: cherie_morte
Pairing/Characters: J2
Word count: 6k
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: swearing
Summary: Jensen loves machines. What happens when a machine loves him back?

A/N: My delightful, dear cherie_morte, I don't know why I thought I should write you a fic when I'm so out of practice and you're such a brilliant writer and I'm late and I'm shooting myself in the foot here. I've completely forgotten how to build a story, unaided by the fact I'm writing blurb after a bottle of prosecco. Happy New Year, darling! *throws a pan of water* (And all my thanks to the mods, for all their patience and hard work!)



MACHINE HEART
Vergil

Gift for kisahawklin

Title: Five Dates
Gifter: de_nugis
Giftee: kisahawklin
Pairing: Sam/Castiel (main pairing); Dean/Castiel (background); Sam/Dean (mentioned)
Wordcount: c8000
Rating: E
Warnings: an episode of ghost possession, canon-level disturbing themes, but it's really a romcom in the end
Summary: Four times Sam and Cas went on dates and one time they stayed home.

A/N: apologies to both the mods and the giftee for the lateness, this fic kicked my ass. I hope you find a selection of your likes here, kisahawklin. See notes and additional tags on AO3 for more information.

Five Dates (AO3)

Gift for harplesscastiel

Title: Feeling Adventurous
Gifter: themegalosaurus
Giftee: harplesscastiel
Pairing: Sam/Castiel
Wordcount: 1609
Rating: E
Warnings: None (there are probably dubcon elements if you think about it critically but the spirit is very much one of gung-ho enthusiasm)
Summary: “Partner?” Sam says. “Super! That’s swell!”

Author’s note: Thanks to the mods and apologies to harplesscastiel for the abject lateness of this piece. I have no excuse especially with such a delightful prompt: “Justin Smith!Sam seduces a frazzled!Castiel.” I hope this delivers something along the lines of what you imagined! And happy holidays!

Gift for stanfordsamlj

Title:An Ear for Music
Gifter:tifaching
Giftee: stanfordsamlj
Pairing/Characters:Sam, Dean, John
Word count/Medium:1819
Rating:G
Warnings:None
Summary:Sam's been able to play music by ear since he was little.
Author's Notes: Sorry, this is so late, stanfordsamlj, it's more Happy New Year than MerryChristmas.  I loved the prompt of Sam playing music by ear after just hearing it once and I hope you like the outcome.  I managed a  happy-ish Winchester family.  I have the beginning chapter ready now, with small Sam and his music.  Teen Sam is on his way and will be posted, hopefully by the weekend.  I hope you enjoy, and once again, apologies for it being late.  Thank you mods, also, for your patience.
