    Summary

    (Nanowrimo 2013 Winner)

    It's a simple check on the back of your driver's license - "In Case Of Serious Injury, Please Salvage." It could almost certainly save your life, but with this promise comes a steep price; that of your humanity. If too much of your body is damaged and replaced with robotic prosthetics, then you're no longer considered a human, and can be bought, sold or destroyed with hardly a single thought.

    Jean's not thought about his friend from high school in years - he'd died, end of story, and they'd moved away. Lost contact, too; that is, until he gets an email with a note about a mysterious inheritance. But he doesn't just get part of the Bodt family fortune - he also inherits the Doctor's only son, one of the first Salvages in existence... and his old friend.

    Summary

    Marco Bodt has a problem. He has the biggest hero complex out there, and though it gains him friends he isn’t thought of kindly by the police: they don’t appreciate a scruffy wannabe bohemian trying to do their job. He helps people, and then he vanishes. But when he saves a rather hostile man from being mowed down by an over-enthusiastic bus driver on the streets of Trost, he doesn’t get the reaction he expects. He gets shouted at for helping, for saving, and realises that sometimes people don’t want to be saved, or worse still, don’t think they should be.

    He also begins to find that no matter how hard he tries, he can't pull himself away from the one person who destroyed his universe... and then put it together again.

    One thing's for certain: it's going to be a hard pill to swallow.

    Summary

    Regency Era-esque AU. Dean Winchester has built the life expected of him, marrying Charlotte Bradbury, raising a family, maintaining his estate, spending winters in ton. However, their life together is built on a shared lie - they are best friends, united to protect the secret of their true desires. Charlie has found a companion who shares her preferences, but Dean is lonely for a want of partner. That is, until he learns of Ms. Naomi's exclusive, monthly, male-only parties, and manages to secure himself an invitation...

    ABOUT THE NON-CON: there is sexual assault (non-penetrative, in fact neither party removes a single item of clothing...but it's still definitely a non-consensual sexual encounter), physical assault, emotional abuse and psychological manipulation in this story. The chapter in question is labeled, there are notes within text warning the reader where the assault is, and I provide a synopsis at the end of the chapter (and repeat it at the beginning of the next) if you wish to skip that part.

    Summary

    In 1843 Castiel Milton leaves his life of quiet faith and duty to take up employment as tutor to the young ward of one Mr Dean Winchester, at Blackthorn Hall. Set deep among the Yorkshire moors, Blackthorn is a place of mysteries – a wild place, where pale faces appear at the windows, and mad women laugh in the night. Castiel is drawn to the enigmatic Master of Blackthorn and they form an attachment neither of them expected. But there are secrets hidden behind Blackthorn's stone walls, truths that threaten to destroy their fragile happiness, as they are forced to confront the ghosts of their past. This is a Jane Eyre/SPN fusion AU, written for the Dean/Castiel Big Bang 2012.

    Summary

    In the year 835, a baby boy was born in a wealthy town on the border of the interior, where he lived until he gave up his heart for the good of humanity.
    In the year 1996, a baby boy was born in a wealthy town in the Inner District, from which he was promptly banned and sent to spend the rest of his life in the dark for the good of humanity.

    If you asked, you would get the same answer: the boy of 835 did not exist. He was simply the main character of an allegory, a metaphor for the importance of controlling foolish impulses, of resisting your own selfishness.

    Any resemblance to a real person is purely coincidental.
