After seeing this adorable artwork, I absolutely had to make a story to go along with it. This isn’t really canon to Fairy Tales, but it was a lot of fun anyway. The art was made by the amazing @lamthetwickster and commissioned by @nightmares06. Thank you both, and Merry Christmas to all!

After the hustle and bustle leading up to the holiday, nothing suited Jacob more than lounging on the couch.
The living room was kept tidy, with the rug vacuumed and the coffee table free of the usual craft magazines that adorned it. There was a low fire in the fireplace, behind a worn metal grate to keep any errant sparks at bay. The furniture, well worn from years of use, had been pushed aside from its usual arrangement to make room for a tall addition that glittered and glowed.
The Christmas tree was rumpled on one side, so they’d set it up with that part facing the wall. The rest was adorned with sparkling ornaments, and a string light that Jacob had been tasked with adding on. His mother was way too short to reach the top of the tree.
There was white felt wrapped around the base for fake snow, and a tidy little pile of wrapped gifts arranged around it. With the fireplace going and the soft light from the tree reflecting around the room, it made a typical Christmas setting.
The wood sprite fluttering around the room made things less typical.
Ooomg you’re so sweet! ;o; Thank you so much for the kind words!
The prompt is Hands from this list, with Jacob and Bowman. I really enjoyed doing this one. I’ll be working on more prompts that I didn’t get done in the last couple batches (hopefully) as well as any new ones that have come in for the 100 GT themes!
This is Fairy Tales canon, probably the spring after Jacob and Bowman first met.

The sky above Jacob’s clearing had been a murky grey all morning. The springtime brought with it new, vibrant green leaves to form a brand new canopy over the forest of Wellwood, and that green crown formed a ring around the steel grey overhead. Jacob had made the trip hoping for more sun, since it meant his small friend would have more energy to be out and about.
That hadn’t stopped Bowman. They’d met at the clearing as they usually did. Bowman had made it part of his routine to check the clearing every day just in case Jacob popped in for another visit to the forest. He didn’t live nearby, and so it was never certain when he would have the chance.
I’m glad you enjoy my stories and my take on the Winchesters.
If you want to ‘get back to Supernatural,’ on the other hand, and don’t like the way the story is going, I recommend you tune in tonight and watch the new episode. At the end of the day, Brothers Apart is an AU and not actual Supernatural.
I write for enjoyment, and to relax. The fact that other people can enjoy what I write is a bonus. I love to share everything we do. As you can see, I don’t rp unless there are plans to post the rp. I have a high stress, full time job that consumes much of my life and I maintain the blog and write the stories to escape it.
Brothers Apart was derailed last year when I had a falling out with my editor. Because of this, half the stories I had planned for the series, including the one I was currently working on, were scrapped. That’s it. Scrapped. I’m still writing BA, and I still have many plans for it, but they are proceeding slowly.
Since that is going slow (too slow to keep up with a post a week after Lich is done posting), I figured people would enjoy the other stories we write. The other AU’s are exactly that – full fledged AU’s that we worked very hard on, and are excited to share. It’s disappointing to have them reduced to ‘side projects,’ especially since many are designed with supernatural style stories in mind, and are richer in content with the added input than any story I could ever come up with on my own.
I was wondering if something like this would ever come in. Considering the crap that the various canon non-Winchester characters get from the fandom, it’s not surprising at all.
Not precisely sure what about my involvement offends, but I dunno what to tell ya, nonny. I enjoy writing with nightmares and her interpretation of the Winchester bros. has good chemistry with my own characters. As long as she’ll have me, I’m gonna keep writing with her. Like she said, we do this for fun, and we do it for ourselves.
It’s not a job and we certainly aren’t machines. We’re people. With, y’know, feelings and such. ‘,:T
For those of you who are enjoying yourselves, I hope you continue and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting a couple of stressed creators with your interest and kind words!
