Thanks to the amazing @fujonosamy, we now have artwork for the first chapter of A Burglary at Baker Street!
(Story 3 of the Brothers Lost series)
The newly-minted team of hunters runs into some downtime between cases. Sam and Dean Winchester, cursed to live at a fraction of their original height, agree to a new trip with Jacob; this time on the road home to reassure his mom he’s still alive and kicking.
An uninvited guest throws this family reunion into a mess, and suddenly Jacob’s left alone to piece together what happened…
Characters: Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, Jacob Andris, Mariana Andris, Bobby Loran
Do you think you’d ever be open to introducing Cas and if so do you ship Destiel?
I, personally, am a non-shipper, but I don’t mind anyone who wants to ship the characters in my stories with other characters!
As for Castiel, he actually already is in the stories!
If you check out Brothers Apart, Castiel appears in Brothers Apart 14: Bittersweet Parting. I don’t recommend reading it without catching up with the other stories, as it directly ties into the events that happen throughout the second season.
You can find a full list of the stories here if you needed the link.
Castiel will be seen more in Brothers Apart and a few other BA AUs, but he isn’t a majorly featured character, as these stories are focused more on the Winchesters. His part in the story is very important, but brief.
Do the Littles have any of their own fairytales or lore? I mean, I know that humans are basically their bogeyman (one that they know for a fact exists and they live in fear of), but is there anything else for them? Any myths or legends?
(This one took a little while!)
They generally don’t, but that’s more a part of their origin/upbringing than anything else.
- Each borrower community is formed independent of the others, especially in different countries. Some may have their own beliefs, I will focus on the American and London borrowers that are a focus in the story.
- The first borrowers were from a very religious town in past-England, and though they held onto their beliefs for a long time, their survival depended on a witch who was one of the last surviving bloodlines of the ancient druids. Without her they wouldn’t have survived, so their beliefs were replaced by a belief and trust in nature.
- Many London borrowers are descended from that original borrower town, where they threw out their old beliefs.
- American borrowers are fewer and further between, so they focus on survival above all else. There is no time for prayer between the tasks they carry out to keep on living.
- The fact that they are no longer religious doesn’t mean they don’t believe in the supernatural. Most of them would take a supernatural being’s existence in stride, as they do all things.
They do have local legends and tales at times, depending on where they’re from. Sam and Dean would interview the borrowers much like humans (without Dean taking any part in it, since he would just scare them off).
There are many tales around one area with the borrowers who keep going missing from their homes after visits from a certain company…
Now that summer is here, would BA Sam and Dean ever want to go swimming in a pool (with no one else there, of course)? I can imagine that’d be a bit scary for Sam but with Dean there it could be fun!
The moment Dean finds out that Sam can’t really swim (he hasn’t had a chance to practice since he was 10…), he’ll insist on starting small… like a sink. That way his little brother doesn’t go sinking to the bottom of the pool the second he gets in.
If they go swimming in a pool, they just have to make sure no one else is around to see the surprise borrower guest!
An idea/question Do u ship destiel ? Because what if tiny dean/ or big dean finds a smol cass in the walls with sam ?? Instead of cass being an angel ?
Well, personally I don’t really ship any of the major ships on Supernatural, and I tend to avoid posts on them for the most part. You won’t see any ships featured directly in the Brothers Apart series, but of course feel free to interpret the characters however you choose.
WITH THAT SAID, I do know this amazing little fic where Castiel lives in the walls of a motel with his family and encounters the Winchesters… I highly recommend it! It’s angsty and fluffy, and one of my favorite g/t fics that I discovered on Archive of Our Own.
Six-inch tall Castiel lives his life collecting trinkets from the residents of Paradise Motel, quietly sneaking in and out, never being seen. One morning he’s almost seen by two new residents: Sam and Dean Winchester who are checking out a supposed haunting at the motel. Turns out, they’re not really after a ghost….
Castiel even has his wings!
Will Sam ever meet Mycroft in BC?
It’s not going to be for a long, long time, but yes! We do have plans where Sam will also have the chance to meet Mycroft!
Stan Baker is the agent that they’re going to be in contact with most often, and will be doing the legwork when it comes to any jobs Mycroft has, but we will see Mycroft himself returning in the future. We have quite a bit of the story for BC plotted out, the main task now is actually getting it written down and edited up for posting. Things are getting easier now that @borrowedtimeandspace has graduated college, we’re hoping to hop back into this.
It’s quite fun to put these characters from Supernatural and Sherlock in the same rooms with each other, we’re never quite sure exactly how they’ll react!
Hi I really just love your stories so much. This is just a question but what has been your favourite story writing and can you give us a list of all the OCs? There are some I’m not sure about and want to know if the person I’m thinking of is. And just keep up the good work your stories are the best.
@nightmares06– Oo, this is really hard, because they’re all so fun!
I think the one I had the MOST fun though, would have to be Jacob in Wonderland. We couldn’t wait to start, and once we started writing, it was one solid month (and a few days) before we stopped! That entire, enormous story was finished in that time, and every chapter was more fun than the last!
@neonwrite – I think my brain short circuits and reboots every time I try to think of an answer to this one. I’m really just always so happy when my cowriters are writing with me, so all the AUs and stories are fun for their own reasons. I do love any excuse to have Bowman in the mix, though.
@borrowedtimeandspace – Man, this is a tough question, like choosing between your kids. All the stories are a blast to write! I’m the type of person that has a hard time picking favorites, usually whatever I experienced most recently ends up being my ‘favorite’ for the moment. I seriously feel like whatever story I’m writing with either of my cowriters is my favorite, because we’re making it together and it’s all so exciting and fun.
All three writers have their own separate characters, so I’ll list them below. You can also find this list in our FAQ!
Nixie, Ilyana, Celeste (problematic fave), Walt Watch, Mallory Watch, Briella Watch, Moira Wainscot, Krissy Vent, Sean, Kara Bolt, Christian Bolt, Mikael Foyer, Adriana, Noonia and Elenia.
Zepheera is my main OC, Stan Baker, Simon Baker, Nathan Sullivan, and a bunch of borrower bbys: Kernel, Orrick Shelf, Boston Mantel, Baycliff, Klerida, Marcue Overmantle.
What would happen if a person had glasses to see got shrunk? Would they no longer need them or retain some near sightless?
Eyesight is one of the senses that gets the most from the ‘curse’ Celeste puts on them– Which, when you take out the shrinking, a side-effect she created, is more of a blessing!
Borrowers have sharper vision than humans do, and any human who needs glasses will find that their eyes grow stronger the longer they’re under the curse. Children get the strongest effect from this, which is why she far prefers using youthful humans with plenty of growth ahead of them, but even an adult would notice a difference.
This is how most borrowers have very strong nightvision, and can see very well in the dark!
Hi I was just wondering how many AUs will have the bros as kids? Also your stories are freaking awesome.
Well, so far we have Brothers Together and Brothers Saved that have started posting (more to come soon for Brothers Saved). Brothers Discovered will have the bros as tiny kiddos over in London, and is still being worked on. Brothers United, as well, starts when Sam and Dean are young. In this one, they’re both regular sized, but they encounter Oscar when they’re all kids!
And then… just a few random ideas we’ve had that we may sometime turn into stories 😉 Super secret stuff and all that.
