In the past of Brothers Kept…

anonymous  asked:

Given that you said borrowers had been made into pets since the 1950s in Brothers Kept, something tells me that it would all be Arrietty Clock’s fault for all the borrowers’ sucky situation in either needing to hide better or getting put into cages.

Oh, I’m absolutely certain Arriety had something to do with the state of this AU! She’s got just as much bad luck as any of the boys we have in it now, and hated what became of her people after the incident.

Perhaps one day someone can right the wrongs of this universe, but for now they struggle to even understand each other’s point of view. 

Trickster shenanigans

From: Anon

Comment: What kind of shenanigans do you think would rain down on our boys if they had a run in with the trickster? Hopefully nothing as morbid as the mystery spot!a

But I have fun imagining Dean being made into something smaller than normal – like getting turned into a child again, the age he was when Sam was cursed to get like “a second chance” that’s all fucked up because Dean as a child won’t be able to drive or pay for the motel rooms or anything. Or maybe turning into like a raccoon or something (those tiny hands!) where he has to struggle to convince sam that he’s not a feral animal while being severely hindered in the communication department. Anyway, if he was smaller than normal but still big to Sam so we could see like a different size dynamic idk.

Love you and all that you do! 

Aww, thank you so much! It means everything for us to hear that you love our stories!

The trickster is certainly getting up to shenanigans in the BA multiverses, and though I can’t guarantee he’ll ever appear in the original BA, he’s already shown his face in Brothers Found, in the epic tale of Jacob in Wonderland, and he’s also planned to show up in other stories, with various plans in mind. 

There have been a few fanfictions written that have the trickster in them, so they’re always worth checking out- Not a Game by @arc852, and The Dragon at Knights Inn by @wolfie180g. (For a full list of the fanfictions written for BA, check out here, and if you know one that isn’t on the list, message @nightmares06!)

Age fics are always cute, and it would be interesting to see Sam with a scrawny teenaged Dean! Dean would be pretty upset (if he still has his memories) that he’s now too young to buy any beer.

As for animals, I generally don’t do animal transformations, but I recommend checking out @wolfie180g​‘s stuff! They have a lot of this, and they also do a lot of g/t oriented stories with Sam and Dean. 

Briella Watch in Brothers Consulted

From: Anon

Comment: I feel REALLY bad for poor Bree in Brothers Consulted. In a way, aside from Mark and Anita who had to deal with being under Euan’s control for years, Bree had to undergo being taken away from her family (at least Mallory most likely survived this au), being forced to become a pet to a family of criminals with all sans one treating her like a doll, THEN getting shipped away to London and away from the only stability in her life (aka Beth) to get marked with a brand, and had she not gotten rescued, who knows what would’ve happened to her. And, unlike the others, she’s kind of alone in the whole situation. Mikael, Kara and Christian have each other. Anita and Mark got reunited. Even Dean and Sam were lucky enough to stick together through their whole ordeal on making it to London. Bree’s got nobody and since her family is back in the US, she’ll have to make the biggest adjustment of all since she has to probably learn how to borrow all over again.

Yes, Bree absolutely has the roughest path of the Americans they saved! Luckily for her, the British borrower population is very welcoming. Anyone that Sam and Dean are in contact with would take her in with open arms, and of course at the moment she can stay with the Winchesters during her initial recovery. 

Her most important issue will be keeping her separate from humans, since right now she’s the most conditioned out of the crew they rescued. They can’t have her going back to humans and end up where she started at. 

Story love

From: Briana

Comment: I love the ba multiverse so much! I just devoured the stories when I found them and I feel like the characters and world are tangible, after so many people have shared so enthusiastically in it together!

Anyway, I’m also a huge fan of Schitt’s Creek, and I have so much fun imagining a bizarre crossover. Moira meeting Dean, expounding on the simple pleasures in life (elitist things that totally go over his head), and Dean inexplicably waxing poetic about pie (trying to impress Moira, I’d imagine). Alexis saying “ew, David! I think I saw a mouse!”
“Ohmygod what?! Where?” As Sam makes a run through the motel…

Anyway just wanted to say I love what you do thank you for sharing with the world you humble me.

It’s great to hear! We’ve put a lot of love into these characters and stories, and hope to continue doing so for a long time!

I haven’t personally seen Schitt’s Creek, so I can’t say much about it, but I do love me a good crossover! It’s fun to see these guys in all the different situations we can throw them into!

Thanks for coming on this journey with us!

Height references

From: Anonymous

Comment: Okay, so we know how small the borrowers are to a normal-sized human, but being the weirdo I am, I had wandered how BIG humans must appear to borrowers just for fun! So I was doing some calculations (although I kinda figured you probably already did them) of how big regular humans would look to the borrowers.

So, on a 1/19 scale that you have them, for an adult borrower equivalent to be ranged between 5 foot to 6 foot (or 152.4 cm to 182.8 cm), they would be between 3.2-3.8 inches (or for the metrically inclined, 8.1-9.6 cm). Of course, Sam (and likewise Jacob) being 4 inches (10 centimeters), would be considered taller than most, meaning most borrowers wouldn’t even make the double digits in centimeter height.

This would mean that an adult human ranging between 5 ft-6ft/152cm-183cm, would appear to them as 95 to 114 feet (29 to 34.7 meters)!

So, with human (or formerly human-sized) characters that actually have a confirmed canonical height, they would probably appear to the canonical littles as followed (WARNING: some might be off):

Dean Winchester (6’0): 114 feet/(183cm)34.7 meters
Sam Winchester (6’4): 120.2 feet/(193cm)36.6 meters
Bobby Singer (5’11): 112.2 feet/(180cm)34.2 meters
John Winchester (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
Jacob Andris (6’5): 122 feet/(195.5cm)/37.2 meters
Sherlock Holmes (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
John Watson (5’6): 104.5 feet/(167.6cm)31.7 meters
Stan Baker (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
Mycroft Holmes (6’1):115.5 feet/(185.4cm)35.2 meters

There’s a strong chance I got some of the characters’ height wrong (ex. I don’t know if Dean’s 6’0 or 6’1), but the main gist they’re around that height give or take.

Now, to compare borrowers to humans without going into the specifics of the 2d4d or and height factors, the average length of a male middle finger would range around 3.7-4 inches for men between 5 and 6 feet. Of course, this isn’t exactly accurate due to genetic variables and the like, but it’s roughly there. Meaning most borrowers would be shorter than an middle finger or even the index finger. Heck, some of the REALLY shorter borrowers (like Oscar, Moira, and ESPECIALLY Kiddo Sam and Kara for example) wouldn’t even make it to classify as ankle-height to some of the taller humans!

To put this in perspective, if the Statue of Liberty walked off her base and put her arm down, she’d be 111’6 feet (34 meters) tall, making her shorter than most of the main human characters (who are already on the tall side). All of them would be taller than the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro since it is 98 feet/30 meters tall without the base. And an elephant (which can range from 9-13 feet/3-4 meters to the shoulder) would be like a chihuahua or any toy breed dog AT MOST. Or going off of fictional examples, a Gundam (usually around or 59.5-65 feet/18-20 meters) suited to a borrower scale would be the size of a young child at 3.57 feet or 1.06 meters.


Needless, to say, the borrowers/littles have my sympathies. They’re even smaller than the Mary Norton’s borrowers (who, at 1/12 scale, would mean a six inch borrower would be freakishly tall to your borrowers). Personally, I prefer your scale since it’d give them the ability for them to hide more easily and get away with more stuff lol. But boy do they have their work cut out for them just trying to survive!

Also, love your stories! Was just nerding our on scale differences!

This is amazing! Thank you so much for this!

We definitely have a few select heights worked out for the giant along with the borrower scale (Dean, Sam, Jacob, ect…), but not everyone, so I’m going to store this in our reference section! There can never be enough nerding out on the scale differences, tbh.

I feel bad for the borrowers, too, lol! Growing up I always like the 4 inches or smaller scale, but when I originally designed this story I wanted the borrowers to both be v v smol, but also able to be independent and able to survive without any assistance. 6 inches was always too big for me to really enjoy, and 4 inches seemed like a good compromise. Now it’s my official favorite scale! I tend to avoid writing stories that go larger, though occasionally I like adding in a third mini-giant scale (like in Jacob in Wonderland). 

As for Dean, we have him set at 6′1″, which gives him just enough height on Stan and Sherlock that he gets to strut.

Sam’s hands are pretty huge, so his fingers would be longer than all the borrowers. Dean’s aren’t small, either, so it’s hard to be tall enough to outsize his finger. Borrowers might be able to beat the length of regular-sized people’s fingers, at least. Those Winchesters (and Jacob!) run tall. 

Borrowers As Villains

anonymous asked:

Don’t really know if you’re doing asks right now so I’m sorry if I’m being a little annoying but humans are often cause for conflict in these stories but has Sam and Dean ever encountered a borrower villain before or will in the future? I just thought it’d be kind’ve interesting.

We’re always open for asks, so don’t worry about it!

Truthfully, I keep wanting to do more on the blog, but the exhaustion levels from RL things right now are high, so I mostly end up just staring at a blank screen for a while before giving up. Getting an ask in always cheers me up, so feel free to message us anytime!

Borrower villains are definitely a thought that has occurred to us in the past, and I hope to be able to do more about them!

Originally, when I was following closer to the original Supernatural plot we were going to have Max (one of the original ‘special children’ from the series) show up as a borrower, much like Sam, with his same telekinetic abilities, which are killer for a borrower to have. I even had another OC planned for him, an empath that can influence how others feel. 

This storyline got scrapped when I got rid of the original The Eye of the Beholder story, but I still have it in the back of my head a lot, always wondering if I’ll be able to pull elements from it into a future story.

There are also a lot of options in the London side of things, where the borrower population is higher in density. More people means more chances for the bad to show up, and we certainly have plans one day!

Just because they’re smol doesn’t automatically make them innocent, and this is a theme I’m very much interested in exploring further with our crews!

I just hope to get my energy up higher soon so I can jump back to the editing and writing without feeling down. 

The Bowman of Wellwood side

enby-phoenix asked:

Technicality Question: I know all the BAAU is Supernatural fanfic, but the ones with Jacob and Bowman… are they Bowman of Wellwood fanfic, or AUs? Considering that the original BoW author is cowriting the BAAU stories.

So I tried to do a little searching to figure this out. Most of what I found referred to published authors doing fanfiction of something other than their own work, so it’s tough to draw any conclusions.

With that in mind, the intent is that they’re all basically Supernatural/BoW crossover fanfiction AUs. I do have ideas for “official” AUs of BoW, but they’re not written at all.

The AU of the Halloween story

kajensen07  asked:

Is the ‘Just Another Halloween’ story from this new AU (Brothers Unexpected) that you just started posting? Obviously, it is after they have grown up a bit and met, but it seems like Jacob knows Sam really well in it… maybe more than he would in Brothers Found? And Dean with Oscar also seems that way. Just curious. 😀 Also, I am loving the new story. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into all your stories!

Oh my, we weren’t expecting anyone to piece this together just yet!

Congrats, you are the first person to realize that Just Another Halloween actually takes place in the far distant future of Brothers Unexpected, long after many shenanigans that these four will be going through while they grow up!

Winning story!

And the winning story, with 40 out of the possible 100 votes, is…

A Time To Heal!

Sam’s arm might be broken, but this Winchester won’t let it hold him back! That is, if Dean ever stops fussing over him long enough to sneak out of the walls for some fresh air. 

We return to Brothers Lost, to check in on Sam and to see how the brothers are doing with their new place in the walls at Jacob’s!

Due to a brief hiatus, this story will begin posting on October 6th!

Sneak peek:

Before he even made it up the steps, the door was opened by Mrs. Andris (she’d married and was technically Mrs. Ellison now, but had been Andris for so long that Chase hadn’t yet gotten used to the change; she didn’t mind).

“Chase! So glad to see you. Jacob just got back a little bit ago, he headed up to his room,” she said, drawing him into a hug as he walked in.

“Really? I didn’t see his car, I figured I might have to wait…” Chase replied, glancing out to the street again.

“Oh, he’s driving that big black car now,” Mariana said, her eyebrows shooting up conspiratorially.

Chase’s followed suit when he spotted the shining black car, a metal behemoth with a classic shape and what looked like a lot of power in it. It certainly suited Jacob well enough, but Chase had to wonder. Jacob wasn’t rolling in money; it wasn’t in his nature. “Where did he get that?! ”

Mariana rolled her eyes. “Oh, he got work restoring cars last month. I even called the guy to confirm, he’s letting him drive it around. Didn’t want it to just sit, I guess.”

“Holy shi– crap. Holy crap,” Chase said, a sheepish look coming onto his face while Mariana raised an eyebrow pointedly at him. “Well, I guess I better go give him a hard time about that,” he said, nodding towards the stairs.

She forgave his near-slip and nodded. “I bet he’ll be glad to see you,” she told him with a smile before softly padding back into the front living room where she’d been at work at a desk in the corner.

Chase had his hand on the banister and one foot on the bottom step when he happened to glance at the archway leading into the kitchen. Nothing seemed out of place, so the barest movement caught his eye, so slight he almost thought he imagined it. Chase’s eyes zeroed in on the appliances all the same, or rather, what he thought he saw moving behind them.

Was that … a leather jacket?
