[livejournal.com profile] baylorsr's podfic of my Dean/Castiel fic, In Country is now available for your listening pleasure. Click here to download, and also be sure to view the very apt photos and artwork she chose for each chapter. These include starkly haunting images of the real Detroit, some of which actually served as inspiration for this story.

Speaking of Detroit, you may also enjoy her essay, Detroit's Apocalypse, a succinct and thought-provoking look at the current state of the Motor City, along with some great links and that "Imported from Detroit" Chrysler commercial that affords some intriguing (if glossed-up) glimpses of the city.

And, in case you've been waiting for it, my thoughts on SPN 6:17: My Heart Will Go On )

Today I finally finished In Country. I wrote the last word at exactly 12 noon on this day, March 25th, which as any Tolkien reader can tell you is Ring Day and Gondorian New Year's Day, and as any Catholic can tell you is the Feast of the Annunciation. I consider this a fortuitous day to finish a story that's been dogging me for nearly a year.

It still has several rounds of proofing to go through so it'll be a little while before it's ready to go public but I'm just so glad it's done. It's funny too because I wasn't supposed to be home today and yet circumstances unexpectedly arranged themselves so that I'd be home to finish this story at 12 noon on March 25th. I was so happy when I wrote that last word that...I went and scrubbed the kitchen. I didn't even know what I was doing. It was really sunny in there and I just grabbed a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and scrubbed down the fridge and the stove and the sink and the range hood. Then I made myself a big sloppy egg-and-bacon lunch. Tonight I'm going to scenic New Jersey to have dinner at Ruby Tuesday. I'm so glad it's done.

I feel superstitious about this post. I've been sitting here thinking of deleting it, but I won't. If something terrible happens to me and I never get to post the last chapter, consider this post an impromptu last will and testament and I hereby leave my laptop to [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr so that she can post it for me.

Summary: The world's gone to hell in the Croatoan apocalypse and Dean and Castiel have to put an end to it one way or the other.
The Story So Far: The turncoat demon Asmodeus (a.k.a. Asher) gives Cass a beating, a lecture and some heavenly bling, in that order, and ships him off to hell after Lucifer. Meanwhile Dean starves half to death and gets way too much unexpected attention from Lucifer down in hell. Unbeknownst to Lucifer, Sam makes a brief cameo appearance and offers Dean some much-needed advice and hope.

Author's Note: Inspiration for part of this chapter is owed to John Milton's great Biblical fic, Paradise Lost.

The Story So Far: Dean and Cass make it to Detroit and hook up with a new demon pal, Asher (a.k.a. Asmodeus), who is supposedly working against Lucifer. As part of the plot, Asher ships Dean off to Lucifer and puts Cass in temporary lockup. Unsettled by this turn of events, Cass busts out of Asher's digs and goes after Dean, now holed up at Lucifer's HQ in the abandoned Michigan Central train station. To Cass's horror, Dean chooses to stay with what he's convinced is still Sam, and the Prince of Darkness gives Cass the bum's rush into the frozen wasteland of Detroit.

[livejournal.com profile] breselida has taken on the monumental task of translating my story "Once" into Russian. I can't understand a word of it but I think it looks very cool:

http://www.supernatural.ru/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=6170

Also on her LJ: http://breselida.livejournal.com/3596.html

Very flattering to see one's writing in another language. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] breselida!

Go back to Chapter I, Cairo

Author's Note: This chapter would not have been possible without the assistance of [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr and [livejournal.com profile] liptonrm who spent last Saturday driving me around Detroit, where I saw many of the city's finer establishments, including the real Michigan Central Station, which truly is a thing impossible to describe, and the tunnel of terror which is also very real and very, very scary. I don't know if Satan's living in that place or not, but someone's brand-new silver Cadillac was parked right at the front door of that vacant building, a real-life detail that was literally too strange, even for this story.

Special thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr for her crash course on the neighborhoods and landmarks of Detroit.

[livejournal.com profile] riverbella (who is sporting one of the most gorgeous Dean icons around) had made a wonderful podfic of my John Winchester story, Deguello.

She's done a beautiful job, especially with young Sam and Dean. I was once again struck by the power of a recorded story to sound so wholly new, and even though I wrote the story, it sounded as fresh to me as if I was discovering it for the first time.

You can download it here at her LJ. Please give it a listen and let her know what you think!

Much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] riverbella for this lovely piece of work.

I'm not sure if you're aware of [livejournal.com profile] dc_fireplace, a community dedicated to Dean/Castiel, but [livejournal.com profile] elvisglasses has put together a really beautiful anthology of Dean/Castiel fics, including my own All Saints Trilogy (Once, The Shame of it All, Feast of All Saints). You can download it here: http://community.livejournal.com/dc_fireplace/27445.html.

Please be sure to read the printing instructions at the end of the post. [livejournal.com profile] elvisglasses has done a beautiful job and I'm very flattered to be included in such a great collection. Please let her know what you think!

[livejournal.com profile] baylorsr has just posted an awesome podfic of my Dean/Castiel story, "Feast of All Saints."

Podfic: Feast of All Saints

At the link, you'll also find links to her podfics of the two other stories in All Saints Endverse Trilogy, "Once" and "The Shame of It All" and also "Jonah of Dalhart," an earlier, non-Endverse story that plays a small part in "Feast," but "Feast of All Saints" can also stand on its own.

Enjoy!!

Author's Note:
This story is a sequel to The Shame Of It All and Once, and could be considered the third part of a trilogy with those stories, but this one can probably stand alone. Chapter Two also refers back to an older story, Jonah of Dalhart, but can still stand on its own if you haven't read that one.

I need your help.

I've started spelling the abbreviation of Castiel's name as "Cass" because on the show Dean seems to pronounce it with a much softer "s" than he did last season. Personally I still think any abbreviation sounds weird as long as Castiel's still an angel but it works perfectly for "The End" fic. But which is it? "Cas" looks oddly truncated to me somehow, and I feel like it should be pronounced "Caz" which is not how Dean pronounces it. But no one else spells it "Cass" except me. What do you think? Does it matter?
