    Summary

    What begins as a transforming love between Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak in the summer of 1965 quickly derails into something far more tumultuous when Dean is drafted in the Vietnam War. Though the two both voice their relationship is one where saying goodbye is never a real truth, their story becomes fraught with the tragedy of circumstance. In an era where homosexuality was especially vulnerable, Twist and Shout is the story of the love transcending time, returning over and over in its many forms, as faithful as the sea.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story needs a warning for AIDS and dying of it.
    It's a retelling of 'Camille' with a flavor of 'West Side Story'.
    This is a bit of an anti-recommendation. I would not recommend, but it's fandom history in Destiel fandom.

    Summary

    The title (and concept of the story) comes from a line from a collection of poems by Haklil Gibran called “The Prophet.” The line is as follows: “And ever has it been that loves knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” From there follows many, many pages of angst, grumpiness, insomnia all set against the stage of a lovely, hot L.A. summer.

    Summary

    There are a lot of discussions in fandom about gender representation in fanworks, and whether fandom is shortchanging female characters. Over the last several years, I’ve seen various debates and wondered about the underlying numbers. So I went and found some… and then got slightly obsessed analyzing them.

    These analyses are not going to be able to address some kinds of questions, many of which can’t be answered with numbers. But I hope to answer some questions, and add more data and new nuances to discussions.

    Summary

    I know how the story goes, Hutch thought, they ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge...

    He fought sleep and was still awake when morning filtered through the blinds and Starsky stirred. He pretended to be asleep, though, as his partner furtively slipped out of his hold and his bed, quickly dressed and stole out of the house.

    ...and they were cast out of heaven.

    Summary

    Hutch put his arm down with a sigh, thrust his hands into pockets, and looked out the window, shoulders hunched. "Dobey doesn't care for it. Going to take a long time. No telling how long. No back-up to speak of. No break. We're going to go under and stay under."

    "I want the case and you damned well know it," Starsky said.

    Hutch looked back at him. Starsky expected more arguments or a small sampling of the Hutchinson temper, but the blond only smiled softly. "I know."
