Summer is a great time to catch up on good television. Last summer, I binge watched Supernatural and found myself in a fandom (for better or worse). A few years ago, I did the same with Dexter and True Blood, then Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy. My normal schedule demands I chose my weekly shows carefully, as I don’t have enough hours in my day to watch everything I want to. So each summer, I…
First of all, we can certainly relate. I don’t know if you were following season 9 but it was a bit ho-hum on the destiel front. Wanting more out of canon or being disappointed in it is one of the big reasons fanfic exists in the first place - from fixit fic to slice of life to missing scenes/coda to character studies. And even if canon isn’t the reason for falling out of liking a pairing, shipper fatigue happens (especially if you hit a series of “not what I’m looking for” fics and can’t find something new that seems up your alley).
With all this in mind, we’ve brought together something us mods have unofficially dubbed our “Destiel Love” post. :P We’ve included links to shippy meta, author recs, and fic recs by category (with blurbs on each fic). We focused on fics we love - where we’re rooting for them to get together or rooting for them to team up and take down the big bad (or both); that remind us of how gone we are for this pairing and of how well these two come together. But in no way is this a definitive post. There’s a wealth of great fic and fanwork creators and there’s no way we could list them all (and we definitely can’t read them all). I actually had to force myself to stop looking through more tags because this post was getting ridiculous and me adding yet another fic wasn’t helping.

Time for a nerd-fession: I spend much of my hard-earned money on grammar and writing books. Ultra nerd-fession: I’ve been known to special order them.
Having participated in two simultaneous BB Fanfic extravaganzas this year, I’ve written more in a shorter amount of time than I ever have in my life. With no time to leisurely amble through the writing process, I’ve had to be at the top of my…
