For everyone who might have missed it, we have a survey open to everyone about the future of Brothers Apart. Feel free to weigh in if you’re a fan of the series!
Here are all our current replies, and more will be added if we get more in:
I’m looking forward to seeing more Sam and Dean interact as the different sizes. I love learning about the curse and seeing how the brothers cope no matter what is thrown their way! (So nothing specific, but more of what you do best!!)
@nightmares06– I love you, never leave.
@nightmares06– Castiel will certainly be showing up more in the Brothers Apart AU, and he’s also slated to appear in at least one other (that I remember!)
And if you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out @neonwrite‘s Quiet as a Mouse, which has Castiel and Oscar meet in the canon SPN format! Its sequel, Beggars Can’t Be Choosers also features the Winchesters showing up to bother the tiny lil borrower of the motel. If we get lucky and give the story some love, maybe @neonwrite will continue this lil spin-off AU!
More Brothers Together! Please!
@nightmares06– We definitely have ideas for this AU! Let us know what you might want to see out of the BT verse!
Anything you can give me honestly.
@nightmares06– Stuff is on the way ASAP.
Some more awesomeness with awesome people
@nightmares06– You’re a hero to me
I want to see more of the original characters, like the Borrowers, Jacob, the Sprites…
@nightmares06– :3 Yes to all of this
@neonwrite– And I want to let you know that you warmed up my poor lil heart with this one, as the cowriter on the blog with exclusively OCs to offer. Thank you so much! I’m excited to get as many of my characters involved as will be allowed ❤
More compelling AUs with our fav characters 🙂
@nightmares06– Plenty more on the way on all fronts 😉
Season three of brothers apart
@nightmares06– For Science is getting edited while we post Burglary and the next story, and the story afterwards is under construction!
Also did I mention that I’ve been fiddling around with the themes that’ll be in the final Brothers Apart story? Yep, some of that has been written out and will be helping to tie the stories all together.
Season 3 will be the third and final Brothers Apart season, but don’t fear! The other AUs will not end with it.
Jack? Castiel? 🤷🏼♀️
@nightmares06– Cas yes, Jack’s existence is just so contrived and complicated from where BA stands on the Supernatural timeline that he probably won’t ever show up in the series, but maybe in a random short story sometime! I need some inspiration for it, haven’t gotten any just yet.
Anything that is as awesome as what you already do.
@nightmares06– You’re all making me feel so fluffy inside!
Just keep doing what you’re doing! All your stuff is awesome and I will enjoy anything and everything that’s made
@nightmares06– We will for sure! So many plans and stories, so little time.
I really loved Jacob in Wonderland as well as the brief scene where Celeste was making Dean grow. I think there’s a lot of cool potential with more size shifting or more extreme size differences and would love to see that explored more 🙂
@nightmares06– We have a few different style AU ideas on the way, either in the planning stages, or just starting out with writing! Size shifting and size swaps, you’ll be seeing a bunch of this! (Extreme size differences will show up again, but we try and handle this one carefully, like in the extra smol Jacob AU).
@neonwrite– Extreme size difference is definitely a different challenge! It’s fun to figure out how interactions would change, especially when in some cases they’re impossible or extremely unsafe.
Hm, I’m not sure exactly.. I absolutely love your stories of brothers apart and all of it’s amazing AUs! I have to say I really loved your sort of take on an Alice in wonderland theme with Jacob! Maybe some other sort of stories like that could come into play as well?? Like.. maybe various other fairy tales into some aus??
@nightmares06– I had a lot of fun with the Alice in Wonderland/Super Mario Bros spin that was on that story! What kind of fairy tales are you thinking about for us to touch on with these stories?
@neonwrite– Jacob is wary of this suggestion, haha. We definitely enjoyed figuring out how to apply a classic tale to an AU, and it probably won’t be the last time. Definitely interested in hearing which stories people would want to see!
Danger for the smalls!
@nightmares06– Oh dear, someone tell Oscar to hide, quick.
jacob, Sprite, body/mind Swapping
@nightmares06– Jacob won’t know what hit him if he suddenly sprouts wings. What would Bowman do if he suddenly had none
@neonwrite– Oh lord. Bowman would be so miffed about a situation like this, and it’s already been established that he’s not very good at being the tol one. He’d miss his wings so badly, and poor Jacob wouldn’t have any of the coordination he’d need to properly use them. They’d be such a mess and would HAVE to call the brothers in for help.
Smol Oscar with the 221B gang
@nightmares06– Ah! He’s so wee!
@neonwrite– Oh gosh! Such a timid little guy up against one of the oddest pairs of humans around. On one hand you have Sherlock, who would intimidate the HECK out of someone like Oscar, and then there’s John, who would probably endear himself to the little guy very quickly. I think they could all get along, somehow. So long as they don’t take his stammering personally.
Definitely more of the brothers together Series. IT Would Also Be Cool To See SOME MORE Of Giant Dean. And maybe even Sammy getting a day off from his curse lol
@nightmares06– We’ll have to get working on our Brothers Together ideas again! Maybe if I have time this summer, when things calm down, I can do some more prompts for that AU and flesh out Sam and Dean’s time together growing up.
Giant Dean 😉
The future certainly holds a lot for smol Sam, whether his curse is cured at the end or not!
Honestly I’m great with whatever you guys roll out, you’re amazing and you should know it. Maybe go get yourself some food, anyway I’d maybe like more AUs, like in your sneak peaks there’s a downsized jacob who was found by his family and a dean breaking into his house.
@nightmares06– How’d you know @neonwrite had trouble remembering to feed herself? Neon, show them the sign you have now!
(also we are pretty pumped for that cute/stress story of Dean and Jacob for sure, I’ll have to go make sure it’s on the top of the ‘need editing’ list!)
@neonwrite– >.> I’ve been called out. It’s true that I have a sign over my computer to remind me to go eat every day.
(You’ve also reminded me that I have some work to do on that particular AU to make sure it’s ready. Thanks!)
More Bowman and Jacob interacting with the Winchesters!
@nightmares06– You bet! There’s plenty more on the way!
In fact, For Science is the first time that Dean and Jacob will meet face-to-face in Brothers Apart! How badly can that first meeting go when they’re both at the same size?!
@neonwrite– It can’t be worse than their first meeting in Brothers Found, in which Dean punched Jacob right to the ground. The kid was wondering how beat up he might be by the end of it. Now they’re best buds!
(That poor kid)
TBH I’m very behind on reading all your stories, and probably won’t make any headway on catching up til school lets out. But one thing I always love is a good snark-off between a tol and a smol, such as when Dean and Bowman newly met in Bothering Bowman. Also Bowman in general. He’s great.
@nightmares06– No worries about being behind! They’ll be there waiting for you when school ends, and we hope to hear what you thought of them when you get the chance!
Dean and Bowman will snark to the moon and back if they’re left to their own devices, that’s for sure.
@neonwrite– Bowman does his best to be as contrary as he can. Especially to humans like Dean. Without a doubt, Bothering Bowman is NOT the last we will see of those two bickering. Thanks so much for this!
More appearances from sean
@nightmares06– Aww, the shy little sweetie! He’d be so flustered to know he has fans out here!
I still am huge trash for big bro Dean and lil lil bro Sam!! Anything with them, hanging with Jacob and bowman will always be a favourite! C:
@nightmares06– The original pair, and always such a fun size combination! You bet we’ll be seeing lots more of them and Jacob/Bowman!
more of the og duo- just sam and dean
@nightmares06– Well, these two will be featured in every story, and there are certainly a few left in BA with just them, but we’ll always have other characters appearing with them, either as main characters or guest appearances, because it’s fun to have some variety!
@nightmares06– Maybe one day! I know there’s the size-shifter Sam AU that I scribbled out for @torchmlp, but I haven’t had any ideas for Giant!Sam specifically.
If you’re interested, @smolstiel has some giant!Sam stories and drabbles, I recommend checking them out (I’m Not Laughing and The Time Sammy Was the Statue of Liberty ). This blog is mostly tiny!AUs, very few visits to giant!storylines.
