Current status of all AUs:

An updated version

Brothers Apart

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 half-done, and the third is in the idea stage, with a three-part special story chain that will end with quite an interesting twist!

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Lost

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 2 finale, which we have not had the chance to excerpt!

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Consulted

The next story will be posting at the start of the new year :3 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!

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Asunder

Several more stories are complete past Dean of Nowhere, but they need to be edited and beta’d. Many plans are in the works for this AU starring neon’s sprites.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Adopted

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.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Found

This story will take the very frazzled group back to the Wellwood in the next edition and will pull in a very familiar hunter for those who have read Bowman of Wellwood! After that, there is one more story under construction, but it’s currently on hold while we write other AUs.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Chosen

The first two stories for this series are finished and waiting to be edited. We also are holding off on posting these until Stan Baker debuts in Brothers Consulted. More stories are planned to follow Stan’s path now that he’s with the Winchesters.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Discovered

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!

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Divided

Two stories are written and need to be edited and beta’d. I know LaEscritora is waiting for her chance to dive at this story after the teasers we’ve put out…

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Grounded

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.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Kept

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.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Remembered

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…

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Saved

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. 

Upcoming stories:

  • Flashlight
  • Pride
  • The Fight

Brothers Together

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!

Upcoming stories:

  • Still in the planning stages

Brothers Unexpected

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.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers United

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.

Upcoming stories:

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!

How is it that Bigfoot’s A Hoax isn’t in the BA universe, but Brothers Kept is??

Simple!

If a story has Celeste and her curse present, it’s a BA universe story.

All other stories, such as Bigfoot’s a Hoax, The Comeback Kid, Reversal of Fate… these are all written in the canon Supernatural universe with only small tweaks to the storyline, mostly in the style of a case!fic.

Dean is cursed to be tiny in Brothers Kept, the lucky duck, so it takes place in an admittedly-twisted version of the BA universe.

Meanwhile, Jacob’s size change was due to chaos spellwork when he was a giant, and the person that is responsible for his current ‘little’ issue the story ended on has yet to be revealed, and will be a big part of the sequel (which we currently only have the description written down for).

There are a few storylines that will be in the Brothers Apart multiverse yet have both brothers be full-sized (Brothers United, Brothers Chosen). We know it’s the same multiverse because there is a curse victim in the story (Oscar, Stan Baker).

Hope this helps!

They’d have a hard time getting their independence, but I feel like John’s friends, such as Bobby and Pastor Jim would help Sam and Dean out here. The brothers can’t be stifled for their entire lives, after all. Bobby especially would be a huge help.

There won’t be any Brothers Apart AU like this written by me because I don’t enjoy writing John Winchester, but by all means if anyone wants to give it a try, they’re welcome to!

Cas will be in the stories for sure, it’s just that he’s twisted up in Main Plot things, and so must wait for his time. But he will appear, and a lot of explanations for what has happened to Sam (both brothers in BL and BC) will be given at long last.

Celeste has a plan, and no one will stop her.

(Try not to send in duplicate asks! We will get to them, but unfortunately with full time jobs it’s difficult to answer things as they come in, which is why we schedule the asks to post. A flood of the same question will not make us post it faster.)

Jacob has actually already appeared in the Brothers Apart series, and he will be showing up again! His premier came in Calling John Bonham, when he didn’t believe Bowman’s story of fighting against the lich with the Winchesters, so he called up the number on the business card to see if it was all true.

(Sam must adopt his lil bro Jacob, right?)

In Brothers Together, we don’t know what Jacob’s up to or where he’s at, so only the future will tell! It’s always possible to have any of our characters (especially our main characters) in any of the AUs.

Let’s see… way too much, and not enough at the same time.

If we just count all the unedited stories we’ve written, there’s about 20ish stories waiting. Much less than that number has been edited, and most are around 10 chapters, give or take a few, but then there’s some (like the horror story) that have far, far more chapters waiting to go up.

We just love writing, and can’t stop (won’t stop).

The hard part is actually having time to edit, and with the way work has been, I might end up having to drop to two updates a week if things don’t slow down because by the time I get to the weekend these days I usually just collapse.

Well, like I said in a previous ask, she does have a backstory and I’ve written out the first time she came into play. As I said before, the only person who will find out what’s going on with her before Sam and Dean do in the storylines will be the Grand Prize winner from the coming contest. Reading that short story will be one of the prizes given out. All the rest, her age, how and why she’s a witch, everything, is a spoiler for the various AUs.

I can’t say too much without giving storyline away, but Sam of Wellwood is its own standalone (ish) AU– as much as any of the BA multiverse is standalone– and Celeste has her own plans for these brothers that she sometimes lets me in on. This is one of the first stories where she started acting out on her own. She’s a little fed up with Sam and Dean.

One of the prizes this year will actually be a special sneak peek at the background of Celeste, and where she came from, so be sure to participate in the contest!
