SPN Dean and Sam Pretty

[Week 14] - Supernatural

Flying Weight (Supernatural | Sam/Dean | NC-17 | 48,000)
Author: fleshflutter
Summary: Sam wakes after being soulless for three years to discover that Dean and his relationship with him have undergone some serious changes. Through traveling and hunting with Dean, Sam struggles to put his life back together after events he has only limited memory of. A season six wincest AU.
Reasons for Reccing: I'm pretty sure if you spend any time in the SPN fandom, you know exactly who fleshflutter is. She's an absolutely brilliant author. I wasn't thrilled with the sixth season of Supernatural, but stories like this make me change my opinion. She takes one small thread of canon - Dean being a vampire - and runs with it. This story is brilliant, dark and enthralling. It's raw, vulnerable and absolutely amazing. I'm pretty sure most Sam/Dean fans have read this, but if for some reason you haven't, do yourself a favor and read it immediately.
Star Trek The Captain

[Week 14] - Star Trek (2009)

I'm Part of All the Things You Are (Star Trek | Kirk/Spock & Spock/Nyota Uhura | Teen | 6,012)
Author: bigmamag
Summary: Uhura hates James T. Kirk because he never seems to do what is expected. Things get messy when Jim makes Spock do unexpected things in return.
Reasons for Reccing: Lately I've been on a complicated story kick. As with real life, not everything fits into organized labeled boxes and relationships are the same way. This story is messy, complicated, and Uhura definitely becomes the bigger person in the end. I'm not a fan of character bashing nor do I see realism in stories where Uhura immediately moves aside the second Kirk steps onscreen, and this story shows the inevitability of Spock and Kirk's relationship and the price that's paid for that. Normally I prefer to rec longer stories, but I stumbled across this one the other day and wanted to share.
