Timelines and Kevin Tran

anonymous  asked:

Will the brothers ever find the bunker? And would Kevin Tran show up in a story?

Well, in Brothers Apart, most likely not.

The stories are based on the first five season of Supernatural, and the majority of it is before the apocalypse ever happened (first three seasons). We are just now venturing into the fourth and fifth season setup, because the angels have made themselves known because of their rogue fallen sister causing #problems.

We have considered a few stories that will have the bunker in them, but they aren’t Brothers Apart based stories, strictly g/t ideas that use the Supernatural themes and stories.

Kevin Tran hasn’t been considered yet, since he’s connected to actions that occur after the apocalypse is long over.

One decision I did make, when Brothers Consulted was in progress, was that the British Men of Letters will not exist in the Sherlock universes. The BMoL take away too much of the Supernatural allure of London, making it a land sterilized of monsters and run by psychopaths a boring crew obsessed with doing things ‘their’ way.

What is it about London and psychopaths

Of course, when Brothers Apart wraps up, I may decide to do single stories from their future, whatever may happen to Sam and the other cursed borrowers in the end. It’s something I won’t decide until this is totally wrapped up and complete. 

I want Brothers Apart to have the ending it deserves, one way or the other.

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!

So random idea. Have u ever read this fanfic called Inverse Operations? Where Sam is the older brother and Dean the younger brother? I was thinking it would be kinda cool to see a version of Brothers Apart based on that

I have not.

I do enjoy fanfiction from time to time, but I tend to stay in the g/t niche a lot of the time (when I can find the stuff, that’s another problem on its own). There’s also not a lot of time in the day anymore where I can sit down and read a good story.

Age swaps are fun, but officially I prefer to keep certain parts of the Supernatural universe intact. Sam and Dean are always brothers, Dean the older and Sammy the younger… However, for a case or two it’s something that would be fun to play around with, just like how the series de-aged Dean for an episode and Sam had to deal with his teenager ‘older’ brother, who was no longer of drinking age but still had all his memories intact.

I do briefly touch on this kind of idea in my canon-style fic Don’t You Cry No More, where Dean ends up younger than Sam through a very unfortunate situation, read at your own risk, and we have… plans… in the Brothers Apart multiverse…

Okay, really random question brought on by my own struggles with hearing loss, but what would happen if, in the BA universe, a witch hit Dean with a curse that temporarily caused him to lose either his hearing or his sight? How would the brothers react to that?

This would take some adjusting for sure!

If Dean lost his hearing, he’d need to be far more aware of Sam to begin with, since now his brother can no longer call out for his attention. They’d start out communicating with writing, since Dean has no current experience with ASL. One bonus is that he does, in Brothers Apart, know Morse Code, so he can tap out a message to Sam in an emergency, and interpret what Sam’s trying to tell him on the fly (they use this on a few separate occasions when Sam’s not in sight). 

If Dean lost his sight, he’d have to rely on Sam’s directions for getting around. Unfortunately, this would mean that Dean can no longer drive the Impala, so they’d better hope this is a reversible spell!

I have seen a few of these issues tackled in stories before. 

In the Deanzilla storyline on fanfiction, Sam briefly loses his vision and Dean directs him Ratattouille style! That’s what Sam gets for growing his hair out. Sam also is pretty much a wrecking ball, it’s a good thing Dean’s not on the floor through all this considering he knocks everything over and sets the place on fire. Dean, your directions need work.

You can find this scene here, but I recommend starting with Deanzilla vs Hydros, as Measure of a Man is the sequel to that story and there are heavy spoilers.

Another story to tackle similar but different issues is The Dean Dilemma. Instead of Dean losing his senses, he ends up invisible, and tiny Sam has to deal with a giant older brother he can’t see.

There will also be a story dealing with Dean’s selective mutism as a child when he goes through a trauma, though that story has not posted yet.

If anyone else knows of any supernatural g/t stories that deal with these issues, let us know!

Hi! (Off note) I fraking love your blog and stories. (On note) I was just wondering what stories are in the works? I’m super pumped for the first and wanted to know what I should be expecting. Thanks for the writings!

We probably answered this before, but now is as good a time as any for an update!

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!

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 1 finale, which we have not had the chance to excerpt! Keep your eyes open for #trtn when it begins to post.

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!

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 @neonthebright ​‘s sprites.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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 @neonthebright ​‘s canon storyline.

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.

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…

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. 

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!

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.

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.

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…

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!

So get this, Sam and Dean are communicating by morse while interviewing a vic, but what they don’t know is that the vic knows morse code. The vic notices the actual fuck?! Who is he even talking to?? Are all FBIs like this? I guess I really am loosing it. Bonus question- are there any other characters who know morse code? Again, your stories are amazing and thank you so much for sharing them with all us :3

Could you imagine seeing someone just tapping out a conversation? With no one? Who’s that guy talking to, is this just a nervous habit? Then realizing that someone else might actually be tapping back… There’s more to this guy than meets the eye.

There actually is one other character who knows Morse (without learning it within the story context, which a few likely will!). John Watson knows it from his time serving, and used it a few times on cases during his time with Sherlock. How he puts this skill to use with the tiny bros remains to be seen!

Can you tell me about your OC Noonia the dragon?

nightmares06:

Sure! I’d love to!

Noonia is an OC that I made a few years back, when I was writing one of my spn g/t stories (The Schism of Fire and Water from the @brothersapart universe ). She’s the life partner of a fire sprite, Ilyana, and lives in the realm of the sprites with her. 

She only shows up a few times in that story, but I do have a follow-up story that will feature her a lot once it gets written. She’ll be making sure Ilyana’s newest incarnation doesn’t get into any trouble, and will be following that sprite (and their borrower buddy) around like a hawk.

For a dragon, she’s actually only a few inches big, so she’s just about big enough to carry a borrower on her back! 

@justanothergiant actually helped redesign her for me, I’m a big fan of how she ended up looking!

Of course, if you have a dragon following you around, be sure not to ignore her too long…

Let me know if you want to hear more about her or anyone else!

If Sam’s curse is bounded to his soul, what would happen to him if is soulless? Will he grow back or stay small? Will the curse just be easier to lift?

Good question! And one that I grappled with a while back.

In essence, removing Sam’s soul from his body won’t cause his body to grow back. If it did, we’d have dead borrowers popping back to normal size all the time!

Essentially, the curse needs to be stripped from the host soul in order for them to return back to their normal size. Otherwise it leaves an imprint on the body it left behind and small they stay. This is something that Celeste, and only Celeste, knows how to do, and she’s certainly not about to just casually go break her own curse. She’s the only one able to tamper with her own archangel Grace that’s been intertwinned with the borrower souls.
