Catching up

Anonymous asked:

Oof so it’s been awhile since I’ve checked this blog, mind updating me on what stories are currently running? I need to know how much catching up I need to do

Hey, no worries! Life happens to us all!

I’ve actually made a few useful pages for this, in case anyone needs some updates or falls a little behind!

You can find a directory to all the stories and links to the different websites right over here – The Stories

That link gets updated when we start posting a new story, so it’s always up to date.

If you’re interested in where we are with future stories and how the writing is going, you can look at this page – Current Status of All AUs

It has a list of all our announced future stories, along with a link to a sneak peek of each!

As for what we’re currently posting, Brothers Consulted has its second story going up currently. A Burglary at Baker Street. After it is completed, there will be a brief hiatus, and then we’ll be putting up the next story in the Brothers Lost saga, There’s No Place Like Home!

Further sneak peeks can be found on our Sneak Peeks page, and let me know if you have any more questions! We love to hear back!

Reader messages

Not gonna lie, I’m the person that reads about the one time Sam got shoved into Dean’s pant pocket and my first thought is “I wish I could see that scene” 😂 All I can picture is Dean being flustered and Sam being grouchy…

Lol! That’s gotta be the most awkward position for those two to get caught in!

There’s actually a scene in Deanzilla vs Hydros, towards the later chapters, where this happens with regular sized Sam and his giant brother, so I definitely had inspiration for it!

(Part 1 of 2) So, to preface, this is more of a passing comment than a prompt or ask since I know that life is crazy and inspiration comes and goes. I’m rereading Brothers Together and I had forgotten how many things are mentioned that I wished I could see what happened! I can’t get the thought out of my mind of what it must have been like for smol Sam to stitch Dean up after a hunt or what happened when Sam temporarily lost his hearing after being too close to Dean’s gun firing.

(Part 2 of 2) I especially keep imagining what it must have been like when Dean pretended to be drunk on the hunt while Sam was giving him directions on the phone. I have this theory that Dean was trying to see just how many ridiculous phrases he could say and still get away with his drunk persona… Basically, I love the multiverse you have created and I can’t wait to read more! 😍

Aw thanks soooo much!

Those little story bits are always fun to have hanging around, just a tease to what their lives are like day-to-day! I might not be able to write everything out, but there’s always the chance someone else might get inspiration from them for their own story!

Sam is resigned to his giant, fake-drunk brother at this point, lol. He’s gotta keep an eye on that hunter so he doesn’t go getting himself in trouble!

Thank you so much for these messages! 

Song Inspiration

anonymous asked:

If you could choose a song to represent the BA multiverse (besides the traditional supernatural ‘Carry on my wayward son’) what would it be?

Carry On Wayward Son is naturally, a classic for writing anything with Sam and Dean in it, but I definitely have my music that I use when I need inspiration!

There’s a few different songs I’ve used for scenes or stories, like Glad You Came for the end of Taken, when it’s all calm after everything has happened. Celeste has her own theme song in Painted Black, the version by Ciara (A+ song for getting evil, and highly recommended!). 

Whenever I want to feel Sherlock-y, I did download the soundtrack to the first three seasons. Those songs are great!

I think one of the songs that helped shape the stories as they are is Jump On My Shoulders, by AWOLNATION. It’s a bouncy song, and not inherently g/t oriented, but I get definite g/t feels from the main line, Jump on my shoulders, and is probably what helped form Sam’s favorite place to stick with Dean. He’s not a fan of pockets, it’s shoulders all the way!

Plus, that song has a line about a man at the door, there to steal your soul, so it also has the Supernatural vibe I’m looking for.

One of my more recent songs is House of Memories, by Panic! At the Disco. It’s what inspired me to start writing some of the BA finale story, which will definitely be emotion-heavy if I get to complete it the way it’s planned out in my mind. 

I just, need songs to write. Give me the music and emotions!

A knack for protection

Anonymous asked: 

What about a fragile forcefield?

A shield like that is not only possible, but it’s the eventual ability of one of the characters in the stories. They’re able to make a ‘bubble’ of protection around themselves and sometimes their friends. It’s considered one of the stronger abilities, because of the way it can hold off a human. 

Side effects of Celeste’s curse

anonymous asked:

What happens to people who are on medication when they are cursed?

Well, it depends on what they’re on medication for!

Celeste is, despite her current disguise, an archangel. Her grace has healing powers much stronger than what Castiel shows in Supernatural. The last thing she wants is any of her little experiments to get sick and die. 

The curse sends a victim into a coma for a week because their body has to adjust to its new size. Part of that is any illnesses they had will be cured. This doesn’t extend to any disabilities. Anyone that’s blind or deaf will remain blind or deaf. Mental health issues are not affected by the curse either. Infections can be deadly at that size as well.

However, sicknesses as deadly as cancer and asthma will be healed. Borrowers live naturally long and robust lives (barring any accidents), and they very rarely get sick because of the Grace inside of them. It keeps away illnesses.

Hope this answers your question!

I’m kinda curious, what would happen if Dean met Bowman before he was reunited with Sam? Would he shoot first and ask questions later? Or would he still realize that Bowman is a person and attempt to be gentle?

Dean often does shoot first, ask questions later. In this situation, though, Bowman’s a small enough threat that if Dean finds him, he’ll probably just grab the small and bitchy green leafy thing to find out what it is, and they’d end up sassing back and forth for ten years before getting anywhere useful (without Sam or Jacob, there is no one to break the circle of doom those two can get stuck in).

Dean might be a hunter, but he prefers to think through a case when it doesn’t make sense, and considering the worst this leafy green guy did was bite him, it doesn’t look as though he’s out here, slinging magic and turning wolves against campers. They’d have a very awkward relationship, but they might manage it!

Bowman would definitely make things interesting for him. The little guy hides his fears with yet more snark, so it wouldn’t be immediately obvious that he’s freaked out by this human wandering around with guns and huge blasted knives, grabbing the fastest sprite in Wellwood out of the air. Dean would get quite a tirade of sprite swears shouted at him, in between Bowman trying to kick him and bite him.

As soon as he gets out of the jar, he swears he’s gonna bop that giant into submission.

Would the ability to phase through solid objects work as a knack? It would certainly make getting into the walls easier.

It would for sure!

You’ve stumbled on a knack that a future character in the series will have (though they are not yet in any posted stories). However, it’s not as strong as they’d like.

An ability like phasing is one of the stronger abilities that a borrower could have, and it has severe limitations. The borrower can’t just phase through a solid wall without consequences. Especially starting out, they’re not going to be able to handle more than a thin sheet of paper. 

Training the knack might help them be able to handle a little more, but there’s always a limit. Paper is the easiest, fabric is a little harder (and it depends on how many layers of fabric there are), wood is possible, but they’re starting to reach limits of what they can handle especially with hardwoods. Placing metal around an object is a good way to keep this kind of borrower out, as they can’t just pass through it.

So, it’s a knack that exists, but the borrower would be walking a fine line with their ability and how far they can stretch it to get in and out of places.

Brothers Saved Dynamic

anonymous asked:

How does the dynamic of Big Sam/Smol Dean interact with people like Bowman, Jacob, or Nixie?

Lol, these two will be a fun pair once they grow up!

Sam tends to be a bit more hands-off with smols compared to BA Dean. He’s far less likely to just grab, unless they’re a possible threat (he hasn’t dealt with any winged smols, so they’ll get nabbed).

Meanwhile, smol Dean is hyper and very likely to pounce on a stranger, he wants to know where they came from and why they’re here, and they better not be getting into his stuff!

Dean’s had a few less savory experiences with borrowers by the time he’s grown in that AU. People just keep mistaking him as Sam’s pet and trying to ‘save’ him! He’s quite happy sticking with his little brother. Who else is supposed to take care of the kid?

If Jacob’s human-sized, it all depends on how they meet. Dean is still as stab-happy as ever if he gets grabbed, but he’s also conditioned to interacting with humans more than borrowers, so he’s not going to be put off by the kid’s size. He grew up with a Sasquatch, after all.

Given smols (without flight) are usually level with the ground, one of the first things they see is a big’s feet.

I’m curious. What type of shoewear do the bigs in the BA multiverse prefer? Also, when at home/relaxing do they favor socks or no socks? Lastly, for human-sized bigs, what are their shoe sizes? Who would intimidate a grounded smol more?

Thanks for your time!

Well, the Supernatural verse parallels reality in how people look and dress per area, and BA parallels Supernatural, so we won’t see huge differences between the tols in the verses!

Hunters like Sam and Dean tend to wear boots, which are certainly intimidating for a smol to see! We’ve got a few scenes in Jacob in Wonderland where Jacob has the misfortune to end up on the floor completely unknown to Dean, wearing a hoodie that blends in with the rug.

The Brits in Brothers Consulted mostly stick to dress shoes, and Stan certainly has a good sense of fashion compared to the others!

Are there stories of yours where the main group witnesses a smol being killed by a human, either intentionally or accidentally? 

We don’t have any on-screen death of smols when it comes to being accidentally killed by a tol, no. 

There are stories that do go into the possible dangers of living near humans, so there is a death by crushing that spurs the story in Garlic and Cold Spots, a Brothers Adopted story. 

Another accidental death occurs in Brothers Lost, where Melanie’s friend dies in a bathtub full of water. You can find this in The Water’s Fine.

We rarely write out on-screen deaths, with a few select exceptions.
