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!

Dean of Nowhere

(Story 2 of the Brothers Asunder series)

Cowritten by @nightmares06 and @neonthewrite

A man without a home. A hunter without a family.

Dean Winchester comes from nothing and lives for no one, but dedicated his life to saving people in need. Now, an unexpected attack on two campers by one of their best friends draws Dean to Wellwood forest, towards an unexpected reunion.

I’m so excited for Dean of Nowhere!!! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this reunion for such a long time!! So, since I’m rereading Sam of Wellwood, I have to ask…what exactly is the process to become a knight of Wellwood? Or a patrol sprite, too?

Ooo, good questions! Fun questions!

Patrol is definitely the easier job to get in Wellwood. Pretty much all they need to do is show they can fly a patrol route and report anything out of the ordinary they might see while they’re out. This includes odd behavior from animals (including non-predators), bad weather approaching, damage to the forest, and potential dangers moving closer. This way a proper course of action can be planned out before something is right at the village. If the area needs extra help from the sprites, they can figure out who needs to go on an expedition (for example, setting up a group to go and help some sick trees).

Becoming a knight is a bit more involved. They have to be training all the time, and ready at the drop of a leaf to rush out in defense of the village. It’s not a job for the lax. In a pacifist society, the knights also have to accept that they will likely end up hurting something to defend the village. Not everyone has the mental fortitude to do that, especially when there’s not really an option to hold back.

If they have the right drive for it, though, the knight(s) in charge will take them onto the team, and oversee their training. They get practice weapons until they’re proficient with the movements they need, and if they impress the bosses then they can earn a sword of their own out of the armory. Then, they’re a knight dedicated to protecting the village, no matter what it takes.

And the winner is…

Dean of Nowhere!

A man without a home. A hunter without a family.

Dean Winchester comes from nothing and lives for no one, but dedicated his life to saving people in need. Now, an unexpected attack on two campers by one of their best friends draws Dean to Wellwood forest, towards an unexpected reunion.


Reaching 51 votes on the tiebreaker, Dean of Nowhere officially won the tiebreaker poll! For anyone who hasn’t read the first story of Brothers Asunder, feel free to check out Sam of Wellwood during the next few weeks before Dean of Nowhere begins posting on October 31st! Happy Halloween!

And now, enjoy a sneak peek of the fun to be had…

Fresh air wafts through, and it freezes.

Such a crisp, clean breath of air. The smoke is displaced by the movement, and it triples its efforts.

For a second, a lifetime, a thousand agonies, the crack is wide enough to slip through. It surges upwards, thinning itself to a trickle to make it. The opening doesn’t last long, sealing up and closing off from earth like a healing wound. None can follow, and it can’t turn back.

None of that matters to it. It is free.

After an eternity in the dark where it has forgotten its very name, the world is open to it. It could do as it wanted. Be whatever it wanted.

There are no more barriers.

Across a sparkling night sky, a black cloud drifts.

What would happen if Dean of Nowhere comes to the lounge… since he has no knowledge of sprites or littles?

The poor guy!

Part of the Lounge, to keep it safe for the little guys, especially Oscar or Bowman, who might not have any relation to a Sam or Dean that never encountered them, is an understanding with the others there. Dean, even from that AU and completely unaware of the borrowers or sprites, would know that they’re not dangerous.

He would immediately be beset by his Sam, who’s been waiting so long to see him!

Sam of Wellwood

(Story 1 of the Brothers Asunder series)

Cowritten by @nightmares06 and @neonthewrite

After having her plans thwarted so often by Dean Winchester, Celeste decides to up the stakes in her newest attempt, this time not even trying to curse the older Winchester. Instead, she removes him from the equation completely and sends Sam far, far away.

Into a forest where a certain familiar village resides, out of sight and out of mind.

Out of curiosity, will you be adding chapters to some of your other series like Brothers Adopted or Brothers Asunder? If so, do you have any idea if that will be in the near future? (Honestly, I’m absolutely feeling starved to know more about these stories.) Also, I know you have something similar in Prompts, but would you be willing to have more story with Sam finding Dean as the borrower? Would a Brother Found situation even be possible with Jacob helping Dean find Sam? Thanks for the stories!

You betcha! 

There’s plenty more planned in these stories. Brothers Adopted we still need to write out, but Brothers Asunder already has several stories composed and waiting to post. Asunder will continue as soon as it wins the poll with Dean of Nowhere, the follow-up to Sam of Wellwood. And what an adventure it will be!

( @bittykimmy is still mad at us for that story, btw )

As for the rest, we already have this planned out 😉

Sam winced, but didn’t have time to mull it over before the second, newer person whirled around and focused on him.

“And you!

The tone of voice was forceful enough to make Sam wince. It almost reminded him of getting scolded in class, or maybe–

He pushed the second image out of his mind. This guy was nothing like his father when he harped on a subject. John Winchester had a strong presence about him, so Sam couldn’t figure out why this person who stood barely a fingerlength tall might remind him of him.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing, catching a kid? ” Dean practically spat out. “He’s not bothering anyone!”
