  1. Summary

    So, brydylcai and I saw the sequels as they came out, (and she lovingly held my hand through the end of The Force Awakens because she knows me), and after each, decided that... there was a better way to do that.

    So, now that the sequels are well and truly over, I, with brydylcai, have decided that I've heard Disney's version, but since it's a stupid-ass version, I'm going to fix it and present to you, well -- what my version of these stories would have been, had I been tapped me to write them without consideration of profit margin or toy tie-in.

    Summary

    "You know, James, anyone who references Forrest Gump and Vergil practically in the same breath --" oh, that sentence should never have been started, it didn't have a single good place to go.

    One of the best Lewis stories I've read--the case fic reads like the show and the characterization is on point.

    Summary

    Appalachian AU! In November 1973, Vietnam vet John Watson returns to his family's old home in Arthel County, West Virginia, deep in coal country. His low expectations include recuperation and boredom. Instead he finds a ruined landscape, a series of grisly murders, and one of the world's weirdest neighbors.

    Warnings/content: Some violence. Explicit sex. Tobacco-chewing. (Not all at the same time.)

    Huge thanks to beta reader bethbethbeth

     Best Original AU Winner of the 2014 Holmsies!

     The Bone Fiddle Fanmix! Music is the heart and the spine of this story, so here is over two hours of it. Traditional Appalachian music, period-appropriate rock, and atmospheric alt-country. All the murder ballads mentioned in the story are here.

    Beautiful cover art by songofthecuckoo.

    Summary

    Written for the following prompt: "Someone write me Crowley the bitter lesbian who only gave Eve the apple because she thought feminism should be there from day one." As such, please be warned that this story contains some fairly radical reinterpretations of Biblical stories and themes; if that sort of thing is not for you, please give this tale a pass.
