Hello there! [Intro & Master List]

Welcome to my journal. Let's see...a little about me. I am currently in college for photography. I also have lots of somewhat pointless little skills. I can juggle three balls and am work on a four ball pattern. I bake the best snickers cake you'll ever taste. Just be quick about getting a piece, the stampeding horde of hungry sugar addicts is sure to be close on your heels. Seriously. Those folks are like rabid wolves when there is cake in the vicinity. Oh! And I can fold exactly three origami figures from memory. Maybe four if you gave me a minute to think.

I am also so talented that I can fall over while stand still on a flat, level surface. That's right. I trip without actually moving. Beat that.

As far as writing goes, I've been making up stories since I was little. I remember writing one for class about a family of mushrooms who got rained on and grew so big they touched the sky. What can I say? Even in elementary school I was a fount of literary genius. Or something. Since then I've done a little work as an editor on a couple of school journals and took a few creative writing courses. I like to attempt NaNoWriMo every year, although November is really the worst month in the world for writing a novel. I did win once, and let me tell you, victory was sweet.

If you'd like to see a few other things I've done, there might be some stuff I've not cross posted from ff.net. I'm Crystal Sampson over there. Read at your own risk. 

Art/Fic: Blind!Sam verse Lebanon Scene (Supernatural)

So I was in the mood for some mindlesss photoshop again last night. I stumbled across this image and I could help but think it would fit in well with my blind!Sam verse. It has not official title yet and I haven't posted it yet because I was working on it for NaNo this year and I kind of picked and chose which scenes I was writing, but I couldn't pass this guy up. So I'm posting it below. As before, it's just some fancy filters and the smudge tool. It's not anything spectacular, but since this blog seems to be all things fandom that I've done, I figure why not. If you don't mind something that's pretty much unedited, stick around at the bottom for an excerpt from this verse that includes this scene.

Bingo Card for Round

So somehow my eternally optimistic behind decided I should grab a bingo card. Nevermind the fact that I didn't complete the one last year and it had the most perfectest prompts ever. Sigh. And given that I'm just now posting it, I guess we'll see how this goes. Anyway. Here's my bingo card for H/C Bingo Round 10.

Fic(?): This is Halloween (Supernatural)

So here's a thing I found while rooting around on my computer. I was working my way into an actual ficlet by process of brain dumping, but apparently never got around to actually writing the other pieces of it. See my writing process basically is spewing words on the page, sometimes five or six times in a row until something sticks like an actual story. There is no plot involved in this, but I'm posting it because I don't remember exactly where I was going with it for the actual action and figured I should move it out of my pending folder. I may come back to it, I may not. This has been minimally edited.

Title: This is Halloween
Fandom: Supernatural
Character(s): Sam, Jess
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1,000
Warnings: None

Summary: Sam muses about what Halloween actually means to him.

Fic: Heaven Is (for Tammyrenh) (Supernatural)

This was my entry for the 2019  Supernatural Summergen for the lovely Tammyrenh. This one was so interesting because we don't see things from Sam's perspective in the same way we get Dean's in the show. Sam tends to be so much more jaded than his older brother and I just see him being extremely careful of veering into wishful thinking territory. When it came right down to it, I couldn't help but wonder what had broken Sam's heart the most, and I think it was really his dissilusionment with Heaven and the angels. So on that sad note, I present to you: Heaven Is. You can read it in the original posting here, and browse some of the other great submissions while you're at it.

And if you haven't already, you should definitely go read Thyrsus that dizzojay wrote for me as part of the same event. It is absolutely brilliant and sure to brighten your day! Seriously, it was perfection! It will go down as one of my favorites ever.

Title: Heaven Is
Creator: broken_cinders
Recipient: tammyrenh
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~2700
Warnings: None, aside from the usual butchery of biblical source material
Prompt: Sam is granted his secret, unspoken wish
Author’s Notes: I was hopelessly intrigued by this prompt. Sam’s always shown as the one chasing normal, but I think that’s a bit simplistic especially now. In the end, I think it’s not really about being normal at all. It’s something more like being at peace.

Summary: He doesn’t do anything so formal as pray. In fact, he’s trying not to think about anything but the book in his hand. Gabriel hears him loud and clear anyway.

Fic: Those Who Can't (Supernatural)

This was written for excoyote as part of the Supernatural Summergen challenge. It originally appeared here. I have made some minor grammar corrections, but otherwise it is untouched.

Title: Those Who Can’t
Creator: broken_cinders
Recipient: Excoyote
Rating: PG-13
Word Count or Media: 8500 words
Warnings: None.

Summary: Sam takes a job as a college counselor for a hunt. He might actually like doing this gig.

Short version: Not dead.

Not really alive yet. Still working on that. But I'm crawling out of my hole to post a couple of old fics that somehow never made it to my journal. So hi! Enjoy the blasts from the past.

Considering posting some more personal updates soon too.

New Bingo Card

One of these years, I'm going to have enough time to dedicate to finishing 5 measley fics. I mean you'd think six months would be enough, right. That's okay. I'm an eternal optimist, so I present to you this years h/c bingo card!

Fic: Mmm Mmm Good (Supernatural)

At some point this was intented to be a fill for my h/c bing card. If I manage to get more writing done, I might still count it towards the homesick prompt.

Title: Mmm Mmm Good
Fandom: Supernatural
Character(s): Sam, Jess
Word Count: 1305
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: None

Summary: Sam never imagined himself to be the sort to get homesick at least until he caught whatever back to school bug was circulating at Stanford and he was laid up in his dorm for days.
