Title: Where Angels Failed (Coming Down on a Sunny Day)
Author: Maychorian
Characters: Castiel, Dean, Sammy, Jimmy
Category: AU, Hurt/Comfort, Family, Gen
Rating: K+/PG
Spoilers: Previous stories in 'verse. This is set between Book 1 and the first interlude.
Summary: Castiel has an ear infection. It's really bad. Dean is eleven and he doesn't know what to do.
Word Count: 11,000
Author’s Note: So I was trying to write Book 4, but then an ear infection happened and I contracted the dumb. I would try to compose sentences and phrases like "ouch, that really hurts" kept inserting themselves into the text. So I gave up and wrote this. It was a very bad infection, reminding me strongly of a horrible one I had when I was sixteen. Therefore...try to follow my reasoning here...I gave it to Cas. Also because I'm a mean writer and I wanted a Dean. Somewhere toward the end I started feeling better and it got a bit more thinky, though not really any more coherent. It took me this long to edit it up worth sharing.

I hope you enjoy. I intend to post another part of Coming Down on a Sunny Day every Friday.

Dean let the door slam shut behind him and walked into the living room, shrugging his backpack off his shoulder with one casual move. )

Title: Coming Down Second Interlude: I'll Pass as Your Comrade
Author: Maychorian
Characters: Jimmy, Cas, Sammy, Dean, John
Category: Family, Gen
Rating: K+/PG
Spoilers: S4, previous stories in 'verse.
Summary: "What do you want to do with your life?" It had never occurred to Jimmy that he had a choice.
Word Count: ~3000
Author's Note: It's true, I've started writing more Coming Down on a Sunny Day. The rough draft of Book 3 is completed and just needs some editing. It's almost 25k words, which is three quarters as long as the original Coming Down Big Bang was. So yeah, I've been busy, and I have a long way to go. I don't intend to start posting Book 3 until I've finished Book 4, because, like the first two books, they're really just one story.

But this piece here, which I'm calling the second interlude (because I had the first interlude between books one and two), is a stand-alone, so I decided to go ahead and publish it. I hope you like it and will take it as a harbinger for things to come.

The title is from "Cruel War" by Peter, Paul & Mary. Give it a listen—it really is shockingly appropriate.

The front door of the trailer crashed open, and the whirlwind of limbs and school papers that embodied Sammy Winchester rushed inside, roaring from one end of the box-shaped dwelling to the other. )
maychorian: (Castiel serene smile)
I've been writing a lot lately. Mostly original, because I want to re-form my life into the life I want--one where I can live off my writing. But I miss fanfiction, I miss Dean and Sam and Cas. Funny thing about writing is that once you get going, you don't run out--you just find more inside you.

So while I'm editing some original stuff, taking a break from writing that particular project, I'm trying to keep up the writing streak. So here's what's coming out.

It's not ready. At all. I'm thinking I'd actually like to treat it like a Big Bang, finish it, maybe find someone to do a little artwork, make a soundtrack--but yeah. I've missed fanfiction. So here's what just poured out of me, unedited, and maybe it looks like fun.

I could write meta about Castiel and his story and what I'm trying to show in this video. I could write paragraphs and paragraphs. But, well, the video is my meta, for now. Perhaps I'll ramble about it later.

I've been wanting to make this video since I heard the line "Hey man, join our band" in this lovely, sweet, harsh song, and now I have, and I am quite pleased with that. That'll do for now.

Man, I spend a sort of ridiculous time on my fanmixes. I've been working on this one for months. Have to find songs that not only sound right to the subject for me, but also sound kind of okay together. There was one song, called "Angel-Land" where the lyrics started out something about how the singer isn't a Superman, and there was more about how it kind of sucks to be an angel or something (I don't remember the exacts), but anyway. The lyrics were great for a mix like this, but I didn't like the sound of it. So it's not on the list.

I have thirteen tracks now, about fifty minutes. They still need more work--I need to figure out how to equalize the volume, because I got these songs from a half dozen different places and the levels are all over the place. And I want to trim the applause from the end of the one live track. And I'll probably listen to it all the way through two or three more times to make sure I really, REALLY like how it sounds. Not to mention changing all the meta data and bundling the music and everything. I do this for every mix I make, even dinky ficmixes that will be only be downloaded by a dozen people.

But anyway. I wanted to at least share the titles, because I am so, so excited about and pleased by this mix. And even the titles are kind of cool. (No artists here, but rest assured that it is my usual mix of emo folk pop.)

So that Castiel fanmix I was working on? I listened to to it last night, and holy CRAP is it appropriate. I have ten songs right now, and they were picked weeks ago, me just making guesses as to what's been going on with Castiel this season, since we haven't really seen much of it. And after this episode, I see that I was pretty much right on, so good for me. ::sticks thumbs in suspenders, sticks out chest, smiles proudly::

Here's the first song, uploaded to for your listening pleasure, and I think the lyrics apply. Safe to Land by Jars of Clay

Did I mention that it seems like I find application to Supernatural in a TON of Jars songs? It's weird. This sounds so much like exactly what Castiel is trying to say to Dean, to both Winchester boys. Or should be saying, or will be saying in an episode or two (I hope, I hope, I hope).

Safe to Land

Getting tired from all this circling
Not much grace left on a broken wing
I feel the wind trying to push me down
It happens every time I get to town

I search for shelter near the mines we swept
I guess forgiveness hasn't happened yet
There are no words that I can say to you
To turn this careless sky from black to blue
So I'm asking you

Is it safe, is it safe to land?
'Cause I'm not going far on an empty heart
Is it safe, is it safe to land?
'Cause the long fall back to earth is the hardest part

I'm in no weather for apology
I need your runway lights to burn for me
And if you say that I can come around
I'll love you right, I won't let you down
I won't let you down
'Cause I'm coming home, if these wheels touch down

I'm coming home, i'm waking you up
In the middle of the night, I'm not giving up
I'm gonna stay, till we make it work
We're not going down even if it gets worse
We'll work it out, yeah, we'll work it out
I need your light, guide me in

Is it safe?
maychorian: (should've known better)
So, yeah, I haven't been talking about Supernatural lately. I've been letting a few episodes pile up on my hard drive and watching them all at once. The first half of this season was just... Too much for me. Too dull, too gross and dark with all the monster torture and the massive disconnection of everybody from everybody. The show had lost its charm, fallen from my favor. I actually...I actually kind of DREADED watching the next one, sometimes. D:

But these last few episodes have been so good, they brought it back for me. I care about all of them again. I want them to succeed, to reconnect, to be the characters we know and love again. And this last ep, especially, really brought it home for me. THEY ARE THE FAMILY THEY NEED AND RIGHT NOW THEY'RE A LITTLE BROKEN AND IT'S SAD.

Way to turn it around, show. )

I love you all, and yeah, I'm not done with this show yet. I thought maybe I was, I was really close to giving up, but I'm not.
maychorian: (Dean wake up)
I have cold. Here, have some Cas.

Is gorgeous, no?
maychorian: (day the ponies died)
also, caught up, and omg they killed Kenny Misha Charlie Sheen whut.

The most I have been writing lately is RPG stuff. Maybe more on that latter. Mostly I have been annoyed by RL things like medical problems, especially my keratoconus which has been particularly aggravating lately like agh, EYES WHY WON'T YOU WORK. Watching TV and playing Xbox is more fun than reading and writing at the moment. And continuing indefinitely, until, you know, cornea transplants or something. Stupid keratoconus. I hate it.

maychorian: (TEAM FREE WILL)
Well, my first Castiel party was a raging success! We ate cake and drank punch and produced many fantastic works of fiction and art, let me tell you. If I had to pick just one to point to as the most awesome of many awesome works, I would probably say the Calvin & Hobbes fusion comic, or perhaps the fic where 5.04 Cas gets high for the first time. Or maybe the Suave & Supernatural Jane Austen-inspired fic/art. Or maybe the one where they fight possessed zoo animals. Or the poetry ones. Or the crazy-awesome X-Files crossover thread. Or the one where Castiel joins Green Peace. Or the hug or die fic. Or Castiel fighting a dinosaur. Or using a sword. Or Team Free Will fighting a Jabberwock. Or any of the fics where Castiel gets a hug, really. Or...

You know what? Just read 'em.

it's a cornucopia of love! )

I really want to do it again, this time with a crack/humor theme. Maybe after Show finishes ripping out our hearts for the time being. There were plenty of awesome prompts over there that didn't get answered.

If I missed something or made a mistake, please let me know.
