I wanted to write this scene way back when I was working on the first Coming Down in the spring of 2010, but it would have interrupted the flow of the story and slowed down the pace, which already felt glacial. So you get it now, and I hope it’s better for the wait.

Yeah, it’s yet more hurt!Jimmy and comfort!John. I seem to be a bit addicted.

Another snippet, this from what I wrote just the other day, so it's in Book 4. I like the way it turned out.

Book 3 Chapter 2 will come out later this evening.

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: (stories with SamnDean)
Book 3 is done. It's 25,000 words. (The first Coming Down on a Sunny Day big bang was 34k words total.) I have outlines for two interludes. Book 4 is building itself in my head.

And, as I usually do when about halfway through a project, I made a soundtrack to listen to while I work.



I'm so excited, y'all. I can see that the SPN fandom has died down a bit on Livejournal, but I love this story and I'm very excited about sharing it with you.

Sorry I haven't been responding to comments. I do appreciate all your support and kind wishes regarding my eyes. I'm still recovering, and I seem to get tired easily. Expending a lot of energy on writing, which is very fun.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the playlist. There's a lot of music from the 90s, because Book 3 happens in 1997, when Jimmy is 23, Dean is 18, and Sammy is 14.
maychorian: (sleepy mice)
I am twelve thousand words into Coming Down on a Sunny Day: Book 3, and I'm loving it so far.

Snippet:

“We were friends, weren’t we?” Dean asked. “In the future that isn’t gonna happen.”

“In a way.” Cas turned his head to stare at Dean, and his eyes were blue and bleak and distant. He was as relaxed as he ever got, tousled head leaning back on the frayed fabric bands of the chair. “I don’t know that you would have called us by that word. But I would have.”

“Was I a jerk to you? I bet I was a jerk.”

Cas shrugged. “You were yourself. You were Dean Winchester, the righteous man, a hunter of mad beasts, a brother and a son. I was an angel, an outside force, an intruder. A monster. I did more harm than good to you and your brother, especially in the first year we knew each other. I thought I was doing right. But you thought differently, and you told me so. Frequently. At the top of your lungs.”

Dean smiled. It almost felt nostalgic, a warm feeling that spread through his body not only from his beer. Nostalgia for a time he had never known, himself, but the tone of Cas’s voice, deep and rich and smooth, made it feel close enough to touch. He’d never seen Cas so loose, so comfortable. It was pretty cool.
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.

Coming Down again )
maychorian: (Cas - Old Jimmy with cocoa)
Walk Off the Earth had a recent video go viral, five people on one guitar, maybe you've seen it. It couldn't have happened to a nicer, cooler band--I've liked them since I saw their cover of Backin' Up. :D But this, this is wonderful. It's the main guy from WotE and his little nephew, singing Blackbird by The Beatles. I used Blackbird in my soundtrack for Rain Falling Down, and goodness but I want to use this cover in future projects. Whiskey-rough adult voice with the sweet harmony of a young boy. Almost like Bobby and lil Jimmy-Cas. Nothing says Rain 'verse better than that to me.

Only thing that doesn't really fit is the beat boxing.

Have written first sentence of Coming Down on a Sunny Day Book 3.

John Winchester had four sons, but when people asked, he said he had three.
maychorian: (LEG GUITAR!!! (squee))
Yeah, so the two mixes Jill gave me last night are utterly perfect. Listening to "We All Shine On" is like a continual hug for me right now. (Chiquitita by ABBA? YEAH. Though thanks for reminding me of Senora Barker, Padfoot.)

And I think "All These Things that I Have Done" by The Killer might ACTUALLY be about Castiel in the Rain 'Verse.

Lookit:
And when there's nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
These changes ain't changing me
The cold-hearted boy I used to be

Yeah.

♥ you x a million.

maychorian: (seasonally appropriate!)
[livejournal.com profile] chibifrieza alerted me to the fact that Casting Crowns had done a version of this song, so I had to go look it up. It's lovely and dramatic, but very different than the hymn I know, the one I meant for Jimmy to sing in the last Rain Falling Down story.



So go I searching and by yiminy, you guys, Johnny Cash did a version too! And he said it's one of his favorite Christmas songs. ♥



I also discovered that Longfellow wrote this poem when his wife died. Which just kind of makes me all wibbly now, thinking about John and Bobby listening to this.

So here's a nice smooth classic version just to round out the collection. This is the tune I've sung in church.

Santa Maychorian was up just about all night, laboring on this Christmas present for you. I hope you find it to be a pleasant surprise under your tree.

I'll be gone till next Sunday night, so be good, huh? I see you when you're sleeping and know when you're awake, after all.
