Today is notthequiettype's birthday. On the off-chance you don't know her, Ash is amazing. She is funny, smart, supportive, enthusiastic, never complains about anything, always listens and just, in general, makes my life better every single day simply by being part of it.
Legend has it that anasuede and I met notthequiettype for the first time when we convinced her to spontaneously drive from LA to Las Vegas in the middle of the night to see us.
Keeping the Blade -- (Sam/Dean, R, 700 words) -- Dean's life boils down to three things: his knives, his guns, and his Sam. I LOVE this fic. The repeating theme about why each items is significant to Dean works so well and of course, Ash executes the idea perfectly.
Let It Begin, Heaven Cannot Wait -- (Sam/Dean, R, 500 words) -- A series of firsts for Sam and Dean. This is Ashley's emotional, heartbreaking, heart-clutching writing at its very BEST.
