bluespirit: (Supernatural ~ Dean anim good morning)
Just a quickie (ooh, err! *g*)

+ I'm love, love, loving Spn!  Not that that's news really - but it's a new season & there's always that worry that it might not be as good. But. It totally is! \o/  Also, how can Jensen look even better than normal?  I mean, he has a newborn in the house & he's looking younger & more gorgeous than ever?

+  I had an Spn dream last night.  It was a proper plot with Dean & Sam.  Unfortunately, I can't remember any of it now - except that there was a part where Dean had to go & do something & Sam leaned in & kissed him goodbye.  Just a quick peck on the lips (though he also cupped Dean's cheek with his hand *melt*) - like it was something they do all the time! ♥

+ Other things I'm watching & really enjoying: Great British Bake-off, Agents of Shield, Person of Interest, The Blacklist, Castle, Perception, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, By Any Means, Amazing Race, Sleepy Hollow.

+ Things I'm waiting to start airing here again: Bones, Criminal Minds, Elementary.

+ I've been soaking the fruit for our Christmas cake overnight (in brandy) & am ready to bake today.  In the immortal words of Mel & Sue - 'On your marks, get set - bake!'. :)

+ I'm running the SGA Art Santa again this year.  We've had a good number of folk sign up, & the assignments have been sent out.  Now it's just a matter of waiting for the lovely art to roll in.  Hopefully, we won't have the need for any pinch hitters & so far, there's only been one thing that's made me think 'why do I bother giving my time & energy to this, if people are going to act like that?'.  ;)

+ Depression-wise, things are okayish.  I'm attending CBT, which is hard, but I think is helping.

+ I've managed to pick up another cold, just as my previous one was clearing up.  Mind you, being soaked to the skin on the carrot walk with Bud yesterday probably didn't help.  Never mind - there's actually some sunshine today.  It's cold but the sun makes everything seem better. \o/

+  Bud is as gorgeous & adorable as ever.  Here he is cooling his paws in the River Teme last month, after we'd been walking on Offa's Dyke. ♥

Bud in the River teme

+  Happy Thursday, all!

[personal profile] stir_of_echoes  has posted the most amazing, perfect, Sam&Dean vid ever, & I really needed this bit of sunshine this morning.

I just had to share it with my flist.


Do remember to go to her lj & heap praise!

bluespirit: (Supernatural ~ Dean/Sam hug D smile)
Oh, wow - I've just watched the most amazing Spn vid.
It's so brilliantly executed & tells such an emotional story.  I love it.

Loving Him Was Red - Sam + Dean by [personal profile] ashdoode Sam/Dean

If you're not into Wincest, I really think this can be viewed as brotherly love.

I've also been meaning to rec a couple of stories.  They're J2 AUs with the crime boss theme.  Sometimes I just love reading about the darker side of the boys. (Although I also love all the schmoopy stuff, too, of course. *g*)

Okay, so this first verse is actually more light-hearted (though still with violence so do read the author's notes.)

Killer Romance verse by saone77

It's ex-assassin!Jensen & crimeboss!Jared (who's also rather goofy & adorable when he's not killing people.)
Bonus cast: all of The Losers as Jared's security team! \o/

This next verse is much darker (& also has an underaged Jensen so please read the warnings.)  Jared is a crime boss & Jensen is a pawn in his game plan - until he isn't & it becomes something so much more. 

Crime Boss verse by alezig

I'm going to warn again to read the author's notes & this won't be for everyone.  Frankly, it surprised me how much I like it - but I like the intensity & insanity of the bond they form.  I also have a bit of a possessive!Jared and/or Sam thing, which this feeds soooo well.  (Hmm, I also have a possesive!Jensen and/or Dean thing, actually - so, yeah, I just have a possessive! thing. *g*)

Honestly, there's so much stuff in Spn fandom that I've not really come across before & wouldn't have thought of reading.  I'm loving all the A/B/O & knotting stuff, too.  Hmmm - back to my possessive! hot button, it seems. *g* 

Chibis!

I used a fabulous chibi maker over at deviantart & made myself chibi!Winchesters! \o/





I then adapted them a little to suit my own more 'specific' tastes... *g*

chibi!Wincest! ♥


Thanks to [personal profile] nakeisha for finding the chibi maker. :)

<-- This icon has nothing to do with the post - it's just so cute & I wanted to use it. *g*

Thank you so much for the advice on my 'help-my-muffins-have-gone-soggy' problem. Heh - that sounds way too dirty. ;)
I've had a couple of good tips & am investigating.

However, the muffins I made yesterday didn't get chance to be a part of the experiment as they were practically all eaten in one go! I tried my first savoury muffin recipe - cheddar & leek - & we ate them freshly baked with a fresh tomato & basil soup. I have to say that they were rather yummy (though I think next time I'll use extra mature cheddar rather than just mature as I do love cheese.)
Mr B enjoyed them so much that he's taken the last remaining ones to work with some soup for lunch!

It was a nice, simple recipe that I got out of The Times. If anyone's interested, do say & I'll type it up.

ETA:  here it is! :)

Leek & Cheddar muffins
(makes 12)

275g self-raising flour
125g cheddar, grated
2 small leeks, thinly sliced
2 eggs
80g melted butter
175ml milk
2 tbsp plain yoghurt (I used low fat natural)

1.  Combine flour, most of cheese & most of leeks.  Season.  Beat together eggs, butter, milk & yoghurt, & stir into dry ingredients until just combined.
2.  Line muffin tin with paper cases & fill with mixture.  Scatter with remaining cheese & leeks.
3.  Bake at 190C/Gas 5 for 25-30 minutes until golden.

4.  Scoff & enjoy! *g*

And yes, Jared, too of course, but ZOMG! Jensen was just achingly beautiful in every frame.

bluespirit: (Supernatural ~ Dean reads)
I treated myself to 'The Essential Supernatural: On the Road with Sam and Dean Winchester' coffee table book & oh my goodness - it's fabulous!
It's a lovely large size hardback & is filled with gorgeous glossy pics (as well as fun little add-in stuff like postcards & stickers - & even an air freshner for the Impala! *g*)
I'm still working my way through it, but I can really rec it.  It's just a lovely thing to have - a real kind of 'event' book, if you know what I mean.

If you do fancy getting it & are in the UK, then I got mine from WH Smith online - it was only £19.19 (with free delivery) as opposed to £25 at Amazon.  The rrp is £29.99 so that's a pretty epic saving.

Speaking of lovely books to indulge in... [personal profile] xanthe  has just released 'Ricochet' in paperback form!  So, if (like me) you love to hold a real book in your hands - then why not treat yourself.  Or a friend?  It's nearly that time of year... :)


We're off to see The Hobbit this evening.
Can. Not. Wait!!!!
*dances*

So, David Hewlett is over here in good old Blighty! *g*

Ah England, land of Pickled Onion flavored Monster Munch...is all this cold, grey rain just for us? How sweet of you!

And Joe is wishing a certain someone a happy birthday!

Happy Bday! And get well soon!

How sweet is that?! (And how sweet is [livejournal.com profile] melodysparks to ask him?)

And then there's this:

Joe Flanigan @JoeFlanigan

Alone with my 3 boys this week. Deciding whether to ride motorcycles, clean out shotguns, have a knife throwing contest, or do homework. Hmm

LOL Oh, Joe! *g*

At Fedon 2010


In other news, I've just started a rewatch of Supernatural. I've gone right back to s1 & am going to work my way up to date.
I have rewatched each season (as the DVDs were released) but this is the first time I've done a complete show rewatch.
*glee*
So, I've just watched the pilot & absolutely loved it (all over again!)  But I can't believe how young the boys look! LOL

I started watching Spn when it first aired back in whenever it was (2005?) & have always absolutely loved the show.  I did read a little bit of fic back in the day but then I got overwhelmed by my McSheppy love & all my insane creative writing/arting-constantly-for-years-on-end madness & so, didn't really do the fandom side of Spn at all.  I've always said that it's a show that I'm completely in love with, but not one I'm in a fandom place with. 
Yeah, well.  It looks like that's changed. *g*  I don't know at this point if I'll actually write/make art^ but I am reading fic like it's going out of fashion. *g*  I'm a Dean&hisSammy girl - hey, I'm an old school Lotripper, so I'm hardly going to baulk at a little Wincest *g* - but I may dip my toe in the J-squared waters, too.

Of course, the good thing is that I have years (& years) of fic & art & vids to catch up on! Yay!

And in conclusion!  Happy Tuesday, folks!

Boys!
*hearts in my eyes*

^Just to clarify.  I haven't left SGA fandom or abandoned the boys, & I do still have stories I plan to write (plus I'm modding & taking part in [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa as usual.)  I probably won't be writing any more H5-0 (for the foreseeable future anyway) although I am watching & really enjoying the current season. (Speaking of which - new ep to watch tonight!)  If anyone is unhappy with this, then I'm sorry, but I'd really prefer not to have a repeat of the passive-aggressive stuff that happened when I started branching out from SGA to 5-0.  It was pretty upsetting.

So...

I do love me some Dean&Sam, but, if pressed, I'd say that I'm more of a Dean girl. (But I still love Sam dearly!)
Anyway - there's something about Dean that is just so very, very, very pretty.


Supernatural_8x01_samples__45_

Honestly, I watch an ep & it's like every frame is just one gorgeous screen cap after another.

But, I don't know, this season Sam has really caught my eye. I mean, yes, I knew that he was gorgeous but oh my goodness, now he's even more so!

Sooo...  I'm obviously not making any deep, philosophical statements here (& this is really just an excuse for a gratuitous pic spam) but...hot damn these boys are pretty! (And even prettier together. *g*)

I'm finding myself in need of a little Dean/Sam lovin'. (You know how it is. *g*)

Can anyone rec me any well written (plotty if possible) Dean/Sam stories please?  The longer the better.
Or any well regarded authors of the same?
Or any 'must read' J2?

Boys!
Ta muchly, my lovelies!
bluespirit: (Supernatural ~ smiling Dean)
After watching Spn's season premiere last night & loving having our boys back, a rec on [livejournal.com profile] crack_impala caught my eye. It's a lovely little story - kind of bittersweet but with touches of humour & a perfectly Winchester ending. ♥

Me, My Dad, and Dean by [livejournal.com profile] weekend_exile

Dean/Sam, PG

Author's summary‚ÄčAU where Jess doesn't die while Sam's at Stanford, and they get married and have a kid. Jess dies soon after, though, and after that, it's just Sam. And that's where Dean comes in, guns blazing.

It's written from the POV of Sam's son.

Happy Friday, folks!
*hugs*

This is relatively short - just under a 1000 words - but it's lovely.
The author weaves a sweet tale of Dean & Sam as old men, the routines & minutiae of their life showing how much they love each other.

once I build my rocket to the stars by [livejournal.com profile] unperfectwolf

Author's summary: After seventy-six years, they don't really need to tell each other things, but they do.
bluespirit: (Supernatural)
Oh, how happy am I that SN fandom ran the Big Bang challenge?
*happy sigh*
I'm such a size queen. *g*

I must rec this wonderful AU (only sort of not an AU) with Dean as a firefighter.
*cue fangirl meltdown at that pretty mental picture*

Spark by [livejournal.com profile] pandoraiam
Author's summary: Dean Collins is a regular Chicago firefighter. Then he meets Sam, a mysterious guy who introduces him to a world he never knew existed. You can't run from the past, even if you've forgotten what it is.

EDIT:
Omg - there's a song vid to go with this fic! It's perfect!!!
But do read the fic first as the vid has spoilers for the storyline.

I don't want to say too much about this fic because I don't want to give anything away.
Suffice to say, it's an amazing read. It gave me chills - it's so perfect.

If you love Dean/Sam then do read Tales of the Wild Country by [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing.
bluespirit: (Supernatural ~ religion)
Okay, this weekend is insanely busy already & that's not even counting the half-marathon tomorrow!
However, just had to find the time to rec this great Supernatural song vid 'I've Got You, Babe' by [livejournal.com profile] hay1ock.
It's Wincest, it's Sonny!Sam & Cher!Dean & it's so damn cute! ♥

Heh, now I want to add this song to my running playlist for tomorrow! *g*
bluespirit: (Supernatural)
Just a quickie song vid rec.

You'll Be In My Heart by [livejournal.com profile] wolfpup2000

The vidder says this has no pairing & I'm sure you can see it just as a big brother's love but I watched it through Wincest!Vision & loved every moment.

Okay gotta run - quite literally. Training!
bluespirit: (Supernatural)
Just read a really cool fic that has a different slant on the Supernatural premise.
It's dark & edgy & the boys are almost feral. The slash is mild in terms of content but the raw emotion running through it is sizzling.
I really hope the author writes more in this 'verse.
