Supernatural Fanfic Master Post

I don’t write nearly as many stories as other fanfic authors, but I have enough that I thought putting up a master post to provide easy access might help people find them, both the old and the new. So, in mostly reverse chronological order as written, here’s a master list of links to all my Supernatural fanfiction. I've begun to record my stories into MP3 podfic format; as I complete recordings, I'll be adding the podfic links here, under the description of each story.

Just so you know, I am strictly a canon writer (except for the stories set in the past on which I’ve been Kripke’d). There is no slash here. There are relationships that may include non-explicit sex, but all of them were established in show canon. Only one of them went farther in my story than in the show itself; pardon me for giving Bobby and Jody the chance to consummate a relationship before Bobby died. :)

Go to the list ... )

The Impala Chronicles (Forty-Some Years In A Life) : Master Post

This collection of individual stories is a work in progress. My intent is to write one short story for each year of the Impala’s existence, putting the car and its owners into the context of  the absolutely real-world American history I lived through: the civil rights struggle, the space program, Vietnam, and more, complete with an absolutely period-appropriate soundtrack, since classic rock is so much a part of this show. I began this in July 2009, long before Swan Song aired, so my early history doesn’t match canon any longer, but I’m not going to change it. Despite the long breaks in writing this, I do intend to finish it and bring it current; I just haven’t any idea when I’ll accomplish that, given other demands on my time. I’m only ten years in so far. Each story can be read individually, but it would be best to start at the beginning, since early stories in particular include characters you don’t already know who continue in time. They’re each quite short. 

This page links to each individual story.

Wow, it's been a long time since I've written any fiction. The idea for this one just came to me on a walk. With limited writing time and just one simple, crystal idea, I thought it would make an effective drabble, a 100-word story. You judge. I'll warn you, it's depressing.

Title: Paradise
Author: Bardicvoice
Characters: Bobby and Castiel, discussing Sam and Dean
Rating: G
Warnings: Umm, Winchester brothers being Winchester brothers, no matter what.
Word count: 100
Summary: "Each soul makes its own Heaven."

My very early Supernatural season three story Paying The Price is now available in MP3 audio. Three weeks after The Magnificent Seven, Dean has cause to wonder how you know when you're in Hell. It's a combination of casefic and psychological horror in about 4,600 words. You can listen or download here. It's about 34 minutes long, and 30 MB. (Apologies, but if you're using Firefox, the player/links may not work; they work fine in Chrome and IE.)


Feedback would be greatly appreciated.


bardicvoice: (impalamusic by <lj user=crazypandabear>)
I must confess, I'm disappointed that none of my podfic recordings have generated even a single comment. I guess no one's listening. And I don't know how to change that, which is sad.

But I'm continuing anyway, because I need the practice in recording and editing audiobook work. The latest addition to my little collection is my story Civilians, set vaguely in season three, in which Sam and Dean save the lives of a married couple who have to deal with learning about the supernatural. The story runs about 3,400 words.

You can read the story at the link above, or listen to it or download it here. Please note that, if you're using Firefox, you may not be able to see the embedded player or download the MP3 of the story file: for some perverse reason, while the embedded player and coding for the download link work just fine in Chrome and IE, they don't seem to work in Firefox. Apologies, but I don't know how to cure that. The story runs about 24 minutes, and the file is about 21 MB.


 Please, if you do listen - give me some feedback, okay? Thanks.

I recorded another of my Supernatural stories into podfic in MP3 format. This time, by request, it's my most recent one: Thanksgiving, a story written for this season before Bobby's death.  With no further ado, here's the info:

Thanksgiving
"And that's what this is all about:  sharing Thanksgiving, being family, remembering why we hunt. Holidays put the family in the family business." This season 7 story takes place between 7.06 and 7.09. About 6,122 words.

You can now listen to or download the podfic version of this story, read by me. It's 42 minutes long, and 38.56 MB as an MP3 download. (Apologies, but if you're using Firefox, the player/links may not work; they work fine in IE and Chrome. Don't know why Firefox is being balky ...)

If you want to read the story while you listen, the print version appears here.

Hope you enjoy! Please do leave feedback; I want to improve at this! Thanks ...

To get some audiobook voiceover practice and sharpen my recording and editing skills, I've started recording my fan fiction in MP3 format. If I'm doing this right, this post should provide both embedded player and download links for two of my Supernatural stories, the mid-season-three introspective piece Breathing Lessons and the post-season-three 41 Days of Metallicar drabble collection.


This way to the links ... )

If you very briefly noted a post or a tweet from me indicating links to audio versions of a couple of my Supernatural fanfic stories, well ... sorry about that. I posted recordings to YouTube in .WMV format, but YouTube promptly deleted them because they were too long.  :(

I'm now looking for different options where I might be able to post MP3's in both downloadable versions and with an embedded player that would allow you to play them right from my LJ.

Sorry about that ...

After a long, long time, I have once again committed fanfic. I began this just before Thanksgiving; I really felt the need to finish it, especially after the last few episodes. Me, I'm going to think this happened sometime after 7.06 and before 7.09 ...

Title: Thanksgiving
Author: Bardicvoice
Characters: Dean, Sam, Bobby, Lisa, Samuel, Campbell cousins, Jody Mills
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Word Count: 6122
Summary: “And that's what this is all about: sharing Thanksgiving, being family, remembering why we hunt. Holidays put the family in the family business.”

For anyone interested, I've done a sticky post master list of all my Supernatural fanfic. I'm far from prolific, but thought the master post might make it easy for anyone wanting to read my stuff to be certain of finding it all. Also, anybody who wants a handy bookmark to my writing could use the master list for that purpose. I will update it as I do new stuff.

So, if you're in the mood for canon-compliant fic (apart from some pre-series stuff that got Kripke'd in Swan Song!), drop on by my Supernatural Master Fanfic Post, and prowl through my little collection. Hope you enjoy!

Title: June 17, 1976: Stars and Stripes Forever (Chapter 10/4? of The Impala Chronicles (Forty-some Years in a Life))
Characters/Pairings: John/Mary
Words: ~1300
Rating: G
Spoilers: None beyond aired episodes 

Finally, at long last, here is the latest chapter in my chronicle of the Impala’s history, the collection of shorts I began last summer to place the Impala and the Winchester family into the canvas of real-world American history by doing one story for each year of the Impala’s existence. My first six stories – the ones spanning 1967 through 1972 – were turned into an alternate history by Eric Kripke’s script for Swan Song, with its story of her first owner Sal Moriarty and his Bibles, but I’m going to continue writing my version of the Winchester years.
 
It’s just going to take a lot longer than I thought it would back when I started. :)

Happy New Year, folks!

Sorry I've been away so long; I promise to try not to make a habit of that. I finally managed to blow the dust off my writing, something I really wasn't able to do during the prolonged remodeling work on my house. (It's hard to write when you can't sit in your own house, spread out your research materials, and dive in ...) Now that the remodeling is done, I get to work at home at last! Here is my much-delayed ninth entry in the sequence of stories I began this past summer, intending to write one story for each year of the Impala's existence, linking the Impala and her owners with real-world history. I still intend to keep the story going; it's just going to take a lot longer ... *wry grin*

I knew I'd miss days during this year's 42 Days of Metallicar countdown. This is day 8 for me, but it will go in day 10 of the ongoing countdown, since I'm running late. Sorry about that! I do still promise to write all 42 stories, one for each year, but they'll take longer this time around.

[profile] alias_chick is once again hosting an Impala-themed countdown to the start of the new season of Supernatural. In honor of the Impala turning 42 this year, the countdown will progress over 42 days, starting today, with participants contributing Impala-themed art, stories, poetry, music, and what-have-you for as many days of the countdown as they choose. Drop on by and take part, or at least read, look, and enjoy!

The first year she did this, I did a daily haiku. The second year, I did a daily 100-word drabble. This year, it's not the form, but the substance; I'm going to try to do a story set in each year of the Impala's existence, following the Impala through history. Since we know from In The Beginning that John didn't acquire the Impala until April 30, 1973, the first several years won't include any Winchesters, but I hope they still might be interesting and enjoyable.

I may not succeed in doing a story a day and finishing in time for the season five premiere, but I do promise to complete the cycle of 42 stories traveling through 42 years.

And here's where it begins.
