❝ Whoops, I fail at reading, I read #20 as a prompt - ie, give me an image and I will write a ficlet about it. Oh well! #6, then. ❞
6. An idea I wanted to make work but never could.
I wrote a SPN fic called ‘A Lifetime of Little Deaths’ in which Castiel is able to travel along the line of his life and experience moments out of order. I was actually trying to write him as having a non-linear existence, and I don’t think I did that. While I’m still quite proud of the fic, I am annoyed that I never managed to pull off my original intention.
I’M FILLING YOUR PROMPT ANYWAY BECAUSE I LIKE YOU.
Word count: ~3,000
Notes: This was going to be a Calthazar AU, in which Balthazar has been in love with Cas for years and Cas is asexual and makes some bad decisions. Also, they are super-villains.
This is not a fic that is ever going to be finished, and what I have written ends abruptly. You have been warned :p
Reblogging here because I haven’t really pimped out my fic tumblr thus far.
In 5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight, Castiel wakes up in a hospital and says ‘The Doctors were fairly surprised, they thought I was brain dead’
So according to their scans, Castiel’s vessel is brain dead.
Which means Jimmy is completely gone.
Which is sad as no one seemed to notice.
On the other hand, Jimmy has no control of his body when Castiel is in it.
Theoretically, Jimmy’s body doesn’t respond to outside stimulus unless Castiel responds to it. So the basic tests to check for brain activity - picking the hand with a needle, shining a light in the eye, water in the ear - would get no reaction.
Did they run an EEG, which is not entirely reliable anyway? How does envesselisation work? Is Jimmy’s heart beating and is his brain still firing around the tight heat of an angel, or is the put put on hold and the innate Jimmy-ness tucked away somewhere safe out of fear that the glory will burn him out?
What if Stiles is doing research & he finds a message board & asks some questions & some dude PMs him & is like ‘hi here is stuff I know’
And they chat and Stiles gets help from him sometimes & they actually become internet bros.
And the guy doesn’t give out his real name of course & neither does Stiles…
But the guy’s name is really Sam Winchester. What if, guys.
canon in my brain.
THIS IS SO TERRIBLE IT WOULD ONLY END POORLY. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
Stiles would finally be like…IM me bro, & give Sam his screenname. & they would talk non supernatural things more & more often.
And one day Sam would like, mention Stiles’s parents or Stiles would mention just his dad & not his mom or SOMETHING & he’d say like “Yeah…My mom died awhile ago.” And its a hard thing for him to type, even now. And Sam would just be like.
WHY WOULD YOU WRITE THAT.
The real question is, WHY IS THERE NOT MORE?
