Updates!

There’s been a bit of excitement over on the Brothers Apart tumblr, and it’s fine time for me to update everyone over here!

I recently posted an updated version of our Current Story Progress, which you will be able to find at the bottom of this post. It includes the acronyms for recent stories we’ve been writing ever since I stopped posting story excerpts due to time.

We’ve already had the first correct guess for a story name! A Dash of Hope was guessed within an hour of the acronym reveal, and I’ll put up the preview over here shortly after this posts! Three more to go!

Current Status of 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 completed, and the third is in the idea stage, with a three-part special story chain that will end with quite an interesting twist! This story actually has a prequel that leads up to it, tying in a certain trio of borrowers with the Brothers Apart crew!

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

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Consulted

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

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

There is one more story under construction, but it’s currently on hold while we write other AUs.

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Chosen

The first story for this AU is edited and being beta’d. 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 @creatorofuniverses 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:

  • #afilp
  • Flashlight
  • Pride
  • The Fight
  • Pride Goeth Before a Fall
  • Dad’s Journal

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:

Brothers Sought

This AU will have a bunch of young dorks in it! With Dean at only 22, it’s an AU that lies between our usual age range of characters, and the end result is they are all quite excitable!

Upcoming stories:

Brothers Befriended

Only cutes to be found here! 😉 This AU changes up the age range of Stan and Dean. Normally Stan is a year older than Dean, while in this AU Stan will be younger than Sam, and only ten years old when the AU begins!

  • We’re thinking about starting off with a short story format for this AU, but so far no definite plans have been made.

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!

Current status of all AUs:

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!

Character Profile: Celeste

brothersapart:

Name: Celeste

Age: Unknown

Species: Witch/Archangel 

Eye Color: Ice blue

Hair Color: Blonde/Brown depending on form

Gender: Currently female

Known Abilities: Hexes, curses. Able to manipulate her form if she needs a disguise. Feared by other witches for her willingness to go through with her threats, and her lack of morals. Telekinesis, as seen when she pins Dean effortlessly to the wall. Demons are often found in her vicinity.

Background: Very little is known of Celeste or her origins. Though John Winchester was able to track her victims over the course of the last few decades, before that there is no sign of her existence. She has plans for Sam and his older brother, and continues to haunt their footsteps, going so far as to summon fire sprites from the realm of Aeternum to bring the cursed brother to her, and working with Mina Chandler to outright buy Sam from the Mangas’ household. 

Celeste is the primary antagonist of Brothers Apart and its respective AUs, but prefers to use puppets to do her dirty work, keeping the Winchesters in the dark. She is feared by the covens after having made examples of several members during her ‘experiments’ (as seen in Witchcraft).

One thing is certain: With her flair for the dramatic and the love of making a scene, she won’t remain in the background forever.

Quote: Do you know how many times this same story has played out? Sometimes John saves you, sometimes he doesn’t. Sometimes that little thorn, Walt, interferes. Sometimes he doesn’t. But you know my favorite part? The fact that you two little dears just never figure me out. Bumbling around, saving people, hunting things. You can’t see past what’s right in front of your faces. You’re mine. And you always will be.
