Never Be by rejeneration -- (Sam/Dean, NC-17, 13,000 words) -- Alternative WIAWSNB in which Dean is shocked to find himself living in domestic bliss with Sam (rather than Carmen.) I love a lot of things about this story but especially how the author weaves the story around existing canon and how the alternative storyline doesn't lose any of the emotion from the original. It's also so sweet and angsty and hot and just BEGGING for a sequel. *cough* Also, Jen fixed one of the few things I consider a major Kripke-error. Can you guess what?
woke up new by light_up -- (Jared/Jensen, NC-17, 1,434 words) -- This is a story about the boys realizing what they mean to each other. It's written in a unique style that's really free-flowing, almost lyrical. I love how it slowly builds from nothing to absolutely everything.
