We decided to leave it as a blind poll to avoid one of the AUs being chosen over the others. We know a lot of you are excited out there for Brothers Adopted or Brothers Found, and we don’t want anyone to feel left out by only one of those AUs being voted in! During the next poll we’ll also add in two more stories we’ve finished editing, to toss things up a little.
And remember, just because you think a story is a part of a certain AU doesn’t mean it’s going to be the story you were hoping for! Careful in your guesses!
However, Brothers Apart isn’t going to come back any faster. Unfortunately, I can’t put out a chapter a week for the story. I do hold a special place in my heart for BA, and I’m not going to stop writing it, but it’s become much harder for me to write.
I recommend you reread the other BA stories that are on my pages, or relax and enjoy the stories we’re putting out each week while you wait for the next story to premier. We have a lot of plans for everyone to enjoy, and Brothers Apart will be in the poll for everyone to vote in along with the other AUs, whenever a story is completed.
There has been talk of involving law enforcement in a future story in the AUs, so it’s perfectly possible you will see this happening down the line! It’s which AU it happens in that’s the hard part to decide, there’s so many different possibilities to bandy about.
Also, Jacob’s stepdad is a cop. So… have fun introducing Dean to the fam. Just sayin’, Jake.
As much as I love Archive for its ability to group stories by series, it also mashes everything together if you search by works. On my deviantart page, I’ve actually crafted a listing in order, so you know where each story goes. Found here.
Also, if you go to the Brothers Apart tumblr on an actual web browser, not the app, my lovely cowriter @neonthewrite took the time to put a place for all the stories.
The Stories link will take you to a page that has all the stories listed, and you can toggle between AUs and prompts, and there’s a section with all the upcoming sneak peeks as well. Currently, only Brothers Apart and Brothers Together are listed because the other AUs haven’t been released. This isn’t because we don’t want to! I just can’t physically manage more than three weekly updates. Soon, the other AUs will appear there as they are posted. We honestly can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks.
Daily excerpts are not meant to be confusing, and they aren’t meant to go with any of the stories that are posted. Those are simply a way for everyone to see what we’re working on currently. It’s little snippets from our daily writing, geared to avoid spoilers but letting people know we’re hard at work. So far, we’ve had excerpts from Brothers Lost and Brothers Asunder, both series that have not yet been released.
neonthewrite: You relish it, don’t lie.
nightmares06: XD of all things to be good at and enjoy.
nightmares06: It’s creating an emotional attachment to characters and then using it to systematically destroy my followers.
John Winchester may appear in any of the AU’s, at any time. BT is no exception, and since he’s left his two boys in the motel it can be assumed that he will eventually return to them when his case is complete.
Cursed Dean was just a prompt. It was very fun to write, but since there’s no inspiration for the story, there’s nothing in the works for it. I even have the ideas for the AU’s name (Brothers Reversed, Brothers Flipped), but again, no inspiration means no story. Currently we have five separate AU’s that we are working on with multiple ideas each, and there hasn’t been as much time to flesh out any other ideas.
For anyone who wants to check out Cursed Dean, check out the links below. Of course, prompts are open for that story, so feel free to send in ideas, or if you want to write a story based on them, go for it!
