Hello all followers and fans!

From January 10th, 2019 to April 27th, 2019, there is a contest running for Brothers Apart!

All art mediums are welcome, but the art must be based off of one of the stories within the Brothers Apart Multiverse.

Literature is accepted, so feel free to enter in any story entries you want. The stipulation is if it is a multi-part story, all parts must be up by April 27th.

Contest entries can be found here.

There are some big changes this year in both prizes and rules!

Prizes:

Due to recent circumstances, the prizes have changed for this year. 

  • Early access to several chapters of a future story, to be determined at the end of the contest (choices will be offered depending on what has posted already, and what is written)
  • 2 sneak peeks of future Brothers Apart multiverse stories, both angst and cutes.

The Grand Prize winner will also receive a special 2000 word short story, written by nightmares06 in the Brothers Apart universe from a prompt given by the winner!

Brothers Spaced, an abandoned Doctor Who crossover

Betmyfortune asked:

Since you have a Sherlock AU, will the brothers every bump into the Doctor? Because that would be absolutely bonkers. 

@borrowedtimeandspace – Bonkers is definitely a word for what that situation would be.

One of our first attempts at a collab was actually a crossover with BA and Doctor Who, with the Tenth Doctor and my borrower OC Zepheera. It was one of my first tries having her play with others, so her and the Winchesters butted heads a little.

Which isn’t to rule out the idea altogether; far from it. I’m sure if we come up with an idea for it, there’s every possibility that everyone’s favorite Time Lord could show up some day. I know I’ve personally grown as a writer since our very first collab, and I feel like I’d be more up to it than when we gave it our first go.

@nightmares06– Since we’re not sure if we’ll ever get back to it, we can give everyone a little peek at what we had in mind!

There’s every possibility that we’ll revamp Brothers Spaced in the future, so don’t count the doc out!


The Doctor entered the room prepared for action, wielding his sonic screwdriver for all the good it might do. He was ready for anything and anyone that might be on the other side of the door, no matter how big or scary they might be.

His brow rose when his eyes fell on the table and found two people that were the exact opposite.

“Oh,” he whispered, frozen in surprise for a moment. Despite having Zepheera for a companion, they rarely ran into more people her size. And the Doctor was certainly not used to being threatened by such a person, however futile the warning might be given the obvious advantage he had over the smaller man.

The Doctor, of course, would never even think of using this advantage to harm the man with the knife or the other that was making himself scarce. He raised his hands in a peaceful gesture and was about to explain that there had been a mistake, but Zepheera beat him to it.

For her part, Zepheera’s heart sank at the sight of two of her own people, clearly only after the food left on the table. She was all too familiar with the emotions she was picking up from them now, the fear and uncertainty that had been ingrained in her since childhood. She should have recognized the signs immediately, but she’d been apart from that life for too long and simply didn’t take everything into account. Now she was partially responsible for their distress, and she decided it was up to her to rectify her oversight.

“Stop!” she called, jumping to her feet and moving along the Doctor’s shoulder to where she could clearly be seen. The Doctor flinched a little at the shout right next to his ear, but he was otherwise motionless.

“Please, we’re not gonna harm you,” she went on. “This is all just a huge misunderstanding.”

Dean tensed at the sight of the tiny girl on a human’s shoulder. He didn’t relax his stance a bit, knowing that all he could do to control the situation was control his own reactions.

“That’s just what you’d say, bright eyes,” Dean snapped at the girl as he backed towards the wall, “if you wanted us to drop our guards. We’re not gonna be turned into some human’s pets.”

Mark’s tracker

anonymous asked:

how would removing the tracker kill mark?

Removing the tracker wouldn’t kill Mark if it was done RIGHT, the catch is, it’s set up so that if it’s tampered with wrong (like if Mark tries taking it off himself, or goes to other borrowers to get it off), it’ll self-destruct and electrocute him. Euan set this up to ensure that his little pet would always come back to him.

It’ll also kill him if Euan hits the kill switch, so Mark has to be careful that Euan never thinks he’s trying to run away.

Love for Brothers Consulted

anonymous  asked:

I AM LOVING BROTHERS CONSULTED SO MUCH I DO NOT WANT ABABS TO END

Aw, don’t worry! All good things must come to an end, because that means that new things will begin!

#ababs has passed its halfway point, but there’s plenty more coming! After all, we haven’t seen Stan Baker enter the story since his scene in A Briefing, and this story is his debut in the Brothers Consulted universe! Sam and Dean haven’t been reunited with Moira, who’s very worried for her crazy older brothers, and Euan and his lackeys are still out there!

Technically, the next story after Burglary is actually a continuation of this one, because there’s far too much to even wrap up in one go, so you’ll see lots of these characters still around in Aftermath: A Series of Consulted Shorts. It’ll post between things, because it is a series of short stories that follow the characters and shows what happens between Burglary and the next big story.

Brothers United Sneak Peek

anonymous asked:

Can we please have another sneak peek of Brothers United. I read the first few and really loved it.

I can spare a small one for today, but this story is currently paused on writing, so we won’t be able to show much more of it without giving everything away!

Rest assured we have plenty of plans, but work and stress have been getting in the way of writing…


It seemed to be Oscar’s moment. Dean had given up on his homework, a few hastily scrawled answers in place to keep Sam happy, and he’d turned more towards the television than the table, so he missed Oscar’s furtive movements.

Sam, whom Dean considered too open and nice to be in the life they dealt with, continued blithely working on his homework, convinced Oscar wouldn’t want to leave on them, especially not without saying goodbye.

Oscar reached the edge of the table unhindered and breathed a sigh. With every quiet step, he anticipated the shadow of a hand falling over him to scoop him up. His nerves were frayed when he looked over the edge, but not from the heights. After being kept close by humans for almost 24 hours, he had a shot at escape.

He glanced back. Their attention was off him.

The future of Brothers Saved

CatSparr asked:

I saw that you were planning to do some more work on Brothers Saved and you were asking for prompts, so… I’ve been curious to see John and Dean interact. Usually Dean stands up to him, but at his new size , would he? Could he? Would Sam step in? 

@nightmares06– Actually, there’s going to be a lot said on this subject!

The major overriding factor of how Dean grows up at this size is going to be how he deals with his family.

He’s very used to being the older brother, and therefore in charge of Sammy. Never in his life has his dad expected anything but perfection of him, and he’s taken Sam’s care to heart. Sometimes to the point where Dean suffers to make sure that Sam gets what he needs.

The fact is that John Winchester won’t consider Dean able to handle himself anymore, strictly because of his size, will certainly be a sore spot between them, and Sam will find himself stuck in the middle of them, watching his older brother who he still looks up to, suffer under their dad’s disapproval.

You can find a peek of this future here.

So you will see lots of this, I promise! I’m hoping to get through the early years of Brothers Saved soon so that we can see this develop between the three Winchesters!

Small update

So far, instead of writing out the early days of Brothers Saved, I’ve instead added to the Angst that will happen during the big fight.

Yaaay, angst.

Still open to prompts and ideas for BSaved! More asks to be answered later today! Keep an eye open for them, we’ve gotten some good questions in and will even have a few sneak peeks up!

Timelines and Kevin Tran

anonymous  asked:

Will the brothers ever find the bunker? And would Kevin Tran show up in a story?

Well, in Brothers Apart, most likely not.

The stories are based on the first five season of Supernatural, and the majority of it is before the apocalypse ever happened (first three seasons). We are just now venturing into the fourth and fifth season setup, because the angels have made themselves known because of their rogue fallen sister causing #problems.

We have considered a few stories that will have the bunker in them, but they aren’t Brothers Apart based stories, strictly g/t ideas that use the Supernatural themes and stories.

Kevin Tran hasn’t been considered yet, since he’s connected to actions that occur after the apocalypse is long over.

One decision I did make, when Brothers Consulted was in progress, was that the British Men of Letters will not exist in the Sherlock universes. The BMoL take away too much of the Supernatural allure of London, making it a land sterilized of monsters and run by psychopaths a boring crew obsessed with doing things ‘their’ way.

What is it about London and psychopaths

Of course, when Brothers Apart wraps up, I may decide to do single stories from their future, whatever may happen to Sam and the other cursed borrowers in the end. It’s something I won’t decide until this is totally wrapped up and complete. 

I want Brothers Apart to have the ending it deserves, one way or the other.

Hunger Games

anonymous asked:

This is just a stupid question but will anything Hunger Gamey happen. The idea just popped into my mind and I thought why not just ask.

Lol! I have to say, I wasn’t expecting a question along these lines.

The stories will never crossover with The Hunger Games. Though I did enjoy the books quite a lot and have seen the movies a few times, it’s not my style of story.

If you mean along the lines of games or kids going after each other the way the special children did in Supernatural season 2, then most likely not.

Though Gabriel enjoys a game or two, even he would be taken aback by just how vicious the games turned out to be. Games are meant to be lessons! Sure a few people might die here and there, but setting them against each other just so the people in charge can get a laugh??

The trickster prefers to go after the high and mighty, so it’s more likely the people of the Capitol would have problems with him.

As for the special children, in BA they’re replaced by the cursed children and borrowers, each with their own special knacks (Andy must be out there somewhere! The awesome psychic!). Celeste’s goal differs from Azazel, and she’s after making stronger vessels, not just one strong vessel. Killing off the cursed would make no sense to her when instead she can channel their strength instead.

I hope this helps!

Brothers Saved idea

kajensen07 asked:

So would meeting little Oscar turn out fairly similar in the Brothers Saved AU as it did in Brothers Together? It would be interesting to see the dynamic when Oscar and Dean are the “same size” (we all know Oscar would still be smaller, poor guy!), but would their relationship change too much based on their sizes? Frankly, Oscar could be put in every AU and I would be happy. 👍🏼

Aww, lil Oscar and a much-smaller Dean than usual!

As it happens, this is one of the future ideas we have for the AU, and it’s going to be very different from Brothers Together!

For a hint, Dean will actually already know a lot of the survival techniques for living as a borrower by the time he meets the wee kiddo, as someone else will be teaching him that!

Their relationship will probably be a lot less scare on Dean’s part now that he’s not the big huge teenager, and Sam’s nowhere near as intimidating as Dean can be.

I agree! Oscar in all AUs.

If anyone else has any prompt ideas for Brothers Saved, drop us a line and let us know!
