ADVENT 12-02 -- Gifts, Supernatural fanfic

(Apologies-- it's been a hard day and I truly forgot about this!)

If it was anyone else, two grown men giving each other presents like this would have seemed like a joke.

Chapstick. Dental floss. Moisturiser. Boxes of matches.

But for the Winchester brothers, each of these had meaning.

Chapstick came in so very handy after a salt and burn, especially on cold and windy nights.

Dental floss worked better than string at keeping buttons on shirts, especially in their hard-scrabble life.

As often as they were hurt, moisturiser was necessary to keep the skin supple and cut down on scars.

Matches were often needed for ritual fires, lighting the Bunker's arcane pilot lights, or any other matter of small things.

There were other gifts as well, that seemed like jokes to the outside world.

But for the Winchester brothers, they said "I love you".

A to Z Challenge

Here’s the rules:
1) 100 words or 1 graphic for each letter of the alphabet.
2) Get all 26 by January 15th and win a banner!

It’s that easy.
And perk – It’s the alphabet you know what’s coming if you want to get ahead of it. There is no need for your work to all connect. There is no need for them to be in order.

Like the Numbers challenge, if you are stuck or would like a random word to use, poke me and I will provide.

Now everyone give me an

Weekend Challenge: Weird Gifts

Happy December all!

In preparation for that rush of last-minute 'OMG I forgot them'-gift ideas, I bring you 101 weird and random gifts*, good for almost anyone in your life! Maybe it's something your character of choice gives; maybe they've received it? Maybe it's a gift they've had for years and it holds a special place in their hearts?

Maybe it's been found in the back of a creepy attic and is just plain cursed!

Now, before you start looking at your calendars... YES, this post is a day early. I'll be traveling tomorrow ((impromptu birthday weekend getaway was impromptu -- Figured best bet was to have this posted when I'm in front of a computer, opposed to making y'all wait until I get to the hotel, tomorrow night ♥))

Usual rules apply: Request as many as you want ; use as you are inspired!

Daily Count Challenge to candream

So this is my first time doing this challenge and it helped me to get some much needed work done for a big bang due on Saturday. While I didn't finish it I got over 3k done as well as started my Christmas gift fics I need to write this month. I was on a roll but then a migraine hit so this it for me tonight.

Passing this along to candream may your muses gudie you in your creative adventures. 

Advent - for 12/03

Well, with SPN having wrapped (for now?) it seems fitting our first three advent offerings are from the show!

Mine is a graphic with my favorite lines from Castiel's confession in 15x18, alongside images of first-meeting Dean/Cas, and a much more recent scene full of heart eyes...

Fandom: SPN
Characters: Dean Winchester, Castiel
