Rec And Roll!  
It looks like I might have a chance now to read one, maybe two Big Bang stories, now that my beta-work is done and there's a breather between birthdays.

Here's where you come in!

I'm looking for Sam/Dean and or Jensen/Jared, a standalone story (i.e., not part of a 'verse) that you absolutely loved. Not so much the clever, intellectual kind of thing, but a story that moved you or amused the hell out of you. A happy ending is a must, and I like the characters to sound like themselves.

What do you say? Can you hook a girl up? ♥

Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! You MUST read cormallen's The Silver Ring. It's just so fucking delightful.

(It's AU, but it's written from Jared's POV and despite being AU, it still seems appropriately Jaredish.)

I also really liked runedgirl's and withdiamonds's Big Bangs, too, and though they have happy endings, they're quite majorly angsty along the way.

I might be up for the angsty-becoming-bliss in a bit. It's a story type that I really love, and heaven knows I've used it myself!

Might save those to the hard drive, since I'll be almost Internet-free for the next two weeks. Let's hope I get some writing done, too-- this last week as been total suckage, thanks to lots of RL distraction.

Oh, yes: Here is the header for Cormallen's fic.

Here's her summary:

Summary: Everyone knows that nothing ever happens in quaint, sleepy New Exeter, but to hear Jared Padalecki tell it, the town's rife with adventure, from a fairy princess searching for her true love to neighboring mice redrawing the borders and engaging in mortal combat. Of course, everyone, from his parents to the mayor, also knows that Jared's been making up stories ever since he learned his ABCs, and his friends, the eccentric owners of The Amber Moon Magic Shoppe, only encourage him. So when Sandy and Jeff give Jared a magic ring, it doesn't mean an enchanted prince will be arriving to claim it. Or does it?

Okay, I know I'm really pimping this hard, but this fic made me smile and laugh and feel all kinds of warm inside. And the narrative voice is fantastic, IMO.

I've started that one, and I love the idea of it all. It doesn't sound as much like Jared as I'd like-- there's a British veneer on the storytelling, which is always a problem for me. But I'm planning to stick with it!
