There’s been a bit of excitement over on the Brothers Apart tumblr, and it’s fine time for me to update everyone over here!
I recently posted an updated version of our Current Story Progress, which you will be able to find at the bottom of this post. It includes the acronyms for recent stories we’ve been writing ever since I stopped posting story excerpts due to time.
We’ve already had the first correct guess for a story name! A Dash of Hope was guessed within an hour of the acronym reveal, and I’ll put up the preview over here shortly after this posts! Three more to go!
Current Status of AUs:
An updated version
Season 3 has the first story written, but it needs editing and some TLC before it’ll be ready to post. The second story is completed, and the third is in the idea stage, with a three-part special story chain that will end with quite an interesting twist! This story actually has a prequel that leads up to it, tying in a certain trio of borrowers with the Brothers Apart crew!
- For Science
- Prequel – #adoh
We’ve found where the conclusion of season 1 will be! This AU will pull in several characters that our readers might recognize both from our other stories, Supernatural episodes, and some unique OCs that will appear for the first time in BL! Two additional stories are ready for posting now, several others need to be edited and beta’d, and we’re currently writing our way through the Season 1 finale, which we have not had the chance to excerpt! Keep your eyes open on the tumblr for #trtn when it begins to post.
- It’s a Tall World After All (Season 1 conclusion)
- Epidemic of the Mannequins
- Wayward Sons
- Shadows on the Wall
- Regarding Jacob
- The Road to Nowhere (Season 2 conclusion)
We have several stories written, most need editing. Planned seasons for this series will be shorter, just like on the Sherlock TV show, but they’ll be full of action!
Many plans are in the works for this AU starring neon’s sprites.
One more story is completed but needs to be edited and beta’d. Other ideas are in the works to continue the storyline and take it in a very unexpected direction.
There is one more story under construction, but it’s currently on hold while we write other AUs.
The first story for this AU is edited and being beta’d. More stories are planned to follow Stan’s path now that he’s with the Winchesters.
The first story is 50% finished and currently on hold, but there are many plans for this young and adorable crew, and Stan Baker will also be joining up as a kiddo!
Two stories are written and need to be edited and beta’d. I know @creatorofuniverses is waiting for her chance to dive at this story after the teasers we’ve put out…
Since this is a bit of an AU for messing around in, we don’t have any completed stories, but there are a few more chapters of fun, and we do plan on jumping back on it once we’ve caught up on some of our other backlogged plans! It’s fun playing around with a Brothers-Lost style Sam and Dean with PL1 ‘s canon storyline.
- The continuation of Motel Sprites
We’re only on the first story, but we’ve also constructed the backbone of the AU, all the way through a storyline crafted for this particularly disturbing version of the BA-verse.
Another AU where we’re working on the first story! We have definite Plans for this one, and a familiar face that some of our giant story readers will remember…
Ah, the AU that began as a prompt and grew from there! Both cowriters are interested in pursuing a storyline within this ‘verse, we just haven’t had time to start on the stories. There is another short that was written, and I’m in progress of writing a second as TorchMLP ‘s contest prize from this year.
- The Fight
- Pride Goeth Before a Fall
- Dad’s Journal
There is nothing written or in-progress for this AU currently, but we do have some ideas floating around, and of course at some point we’re going to need to show how Oscar did when he reached Bobby’s!
- Still in the planning stages
Two stories, two shorts, and a multitude of ideas! This is just waiting to be beta’d, and we fully expect stories from BU to show up in the next poll.
Half a story written, and lots planned for these poor dorks! Unfortunately, this is the story we were working on when writer’s block hit @nightmares06 hard, so we put it on hiatus and tried to switch to other projects. Now that the ideas are beginning to flow again, we hope to return to it.
This AU will have a bunch of young dorks in it! With Dean at only 22, it’s an AU that lies between our usual age range of characters, and the end result is they are all quite excitable!
Only cutes to be found here! 😉 This AU changes up the age range of Stan and Dean. Normally Stan is a year older than Dean, while in this AU Stan will be younger than Sam, and only ten years old when the AU begins!
- We’re thinking about starting off with a short story format for this AU, but so far no definite plans have been made.
Giant Jacob storyline
There are plans in the works for a sequel, though all we have for it so far is a tagline written out…
Chaos Priests work in pairs. One male. One female.
Sam and Dean didn’t know this when they put an end to the one that turned Jacob giant, and his partner is still out there.
And she’s found a far more suitable subject to turn into a giant… One that lives for the chaos of a hunt…
We have several more unannounced AUs under construction, and are constantly coming up with more ideas! Feel free to send us in your ideas/headcanons/asks, you never know what might happen!
