Moving on...

After thinking about it for days now, I've finally created a second journal for whatever I might do in the future, fanfic/art - wise.

Everything about this journal here screams SPN at me (well, obviously I wanted it to do that, or I wouldn't have created my theme accordingly) but it seems that the show and me will be going seperate ways from now on. And I need a place where I can be creative and post what's on my mind in the future, be it for the new fandom I seem to be getting quite obsessed with or just rant about stuff that has nothing to do with SPN.

I suppose I could change this journal, you know, change the settings, the pictures, the introductory post... But I don't want to, not really. Supernatural has been an important part of my life for a long time now, it would feel sooo wrong to change everything. I also don't want to give up on my fics completely, I do have some hope to be able to return to John and the boys after I get some distance to all the weird feelings that define the show for me at the moment.

So, no, I'm not purging this journal, my fics will remain online and accessible. But I won't be posting much here anymore.

For anyone interested, the new journal can be found under saltzatore, but, so far, there's nothing on it, yet, that's gonna take a few days.

Well, what can I say? It's been a wild ride, this show has influenced me in a way I wouldn't have thought possible. I've 'met' a very, VERY important person this way and she's become a very close friend of mine, even if we never met in person (though it certainly feels like we did).

I saw the good and the bad that can come out of an online fandom and I will certainly never be able to forget that experience. It's nice to be part of something this big and it can get kind of frustrating as well.

A huge Thank You to everyone involved in the show for creating those awesome characters and giving me a long list of actors to fall in love with, most of all, of course, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Padalecki, I'll definitely be following them outside of the show.

Goodbye, show, may you get all the attention you deserve. And keep all those fans happy!

Welcome to my journal

Welcome to my journal!

Here you will find fanfiction I wrote for the Supernatural fandom. Most of what I write focuses on John (and Sam), be it pre-series or s1-2. I tend to write a lot of AUs lately and I rarely venture into s4-6. 

My personal canon doesn't include anything beyond s3, in my Supernatural world there are no angels, there is no Apocalypse and the Trickster is still a demi-god and one of the best and funniest characters I've ever seen on the show. There is no Adam, no demon-blood-addiction and no Dean crying on the hood of the Impala. If you're interested in any of this, you've come to the wrong place.

However, if you are, like me, interested in giving Sam a chance to get to know his father better via fanfiction, then you are more than welcome to cruise around my journal and read.

A word about friending, I don't necessarily friend people back who never speak a word to me, but I also don't mind that, if you want to keep an eye on my journal, just friend away!

I guess that's it. Have fun reading and leave me a note if you like what you read!

Big Bang: Wrestling Angels, PG 13, masterpost

Title: Wrestling Angels
Author: mikiya2200
Artist: pleasebekidding
Pairing(s)/Characters: John, Sam, Dean
Fandom: Supernatural
Genre: gen, character study, family, what-if-scenario, AU
Warning: none
Word Count: ~ 15k
Rating: PG 13

Beta: ghostfour, pleasebekidding

Summary: (Set after season 2.) John comes back to find his boys… changed, affected by recent events (the opening of the Devil’s Gate, Dean’s deal, Sam’s death). He tries to make sense of what he sees, tries to reconnect, get along—but there are complications, things have changed. The boys have changed. John himself has changed. The Winchesters have to find a way to (literally) breach the gap between them and only time will tell if they can put the past and their differences aside to work on the present.


   Thank You   
ghostfour for always being there for me, through the good times and the bad. She's been there from the very first word I wrote for this until now. I owe her a lot, not only for this, but for everything. I love you, hun, for seeing the way even when I didn't know where to go anymore. I might have dropped out of this if it wasn't for you. This wouldn't have been possible without you.

pleasebekidding for the wonderful art for this. I LOVE the banner, the composition, how she instinctively used two of my ALL TIME FAVORITE pics of my boys. She brought me stubble! When I was freaking out she sent me even more stubble and calmed me down. She helped a lot and I am SO happy I got her to do the art because she's obviously amazing at it! PAELLA, hun, so much you're gonna drown in it! Thank you SO MUCH for everything!

But Sammy just shuts down sometimes. He’s got all th e willpower us Winchesters are known for, but in him it sits quietly. You don’t notice it’s there until he decides he feels strongly enough about something that he won’t compromise. Then you might as  well wrestle angels.

LJ is driving me crazy

For weeks now, I've been having trouble with this stupid LJ. Links in my masterpost (which I have worked on for three hours) suddenly disappear, weeks after I had finished and saved it. And when I try to put them in I have to do it via the HTML-editor since the other won't let me click 'okay' in the little box. Well, thanks to that I now know the html-code for including links, I guess that's something.

But it doesn't stop there, the format of long ago posted entries is all over the place, some passages are in different sizes.

I lost tags to my entries, they suddenly no longer show up when I click on the tag.

I have to reload my front page at least four times before it shows up.

Not to mention that the stupid rich text editor strips the texts I wrote in word of all formats and I have to go through every line for italics or bold writing. I know that's actually a desired effect to reduce the html-word-count (?) of an entry (or something like that), but it's driving me crazy.

I'm paying for this crap. Yes, I did get two extra weeks for my account and, yes, I know the people at LJ are working their asses off to solve the problems, but still... It's SO frustrating...
