Fanfic: "Amethyst"

Hi everyone!

Chinese (one of my hardest exams!) is over and done with, and I'm quite relieved about that. There were some tech issues, which was slightly scary because it looked like we might not get them resolved, but it all worked out in the end and our teacher managed to figure out what was going wrong! So now the majority of my exams are over, which is AWESOME. All I have left are Molecular Biology + Algebra II Trig, but those are both on Thursday. I still have tomorrow to chill + study + get some much-needed sleep, since no exams means I get to stay home. :D

Today I'm sharing a fanfic I wrote over the weekend in between studying - it was a lovely stress reliever, since, as you guys know, I love writing fanfiction. Certainly not as writerly intensive as original work, but a lot more fun! This one's a Supernatural fic (any fans around here? Come hither and fangirl with me!), and I quite enjoyed writing it.

Those of you who watch the show will know that it's slightly depressing at times, but this is pretty much just an exercise in fluffiness, because that's how I roll. ;) Here's the description:

Sam's getting married to the love of his life, which is great and all, except the happy couple is absolutely hopeless at wedding planning. Which, of course, leaves it up to the long-suffering best man/future brother-in-law/best big brother in the world to play damage control and pull together a kickass wedding in six months... with the help of a pretentious, blue-eyed, Taylor Swift-listening asshole who Dean may or may not be falling in love with. Purple arguments, stolen cakes, and hijinks ensue.

Also, have an excerpt!

“She said lilac, Dean.”

“Hell no. She said mauve.”

Castiel sighs gustily. “You barely know the difference between navy and black. I am telling you, she said lilac.”

Dean bristles. “Just ‘cause I own a leather jacket and drive a badass car does not mean I don’t know what my soon-to-be-sister-in-law wants for her bridesmaids’ dresses. She said mauve.”

“You are simply afraid of being wrong.”

“No, you’re too stubborn to admit that you are.”

“Your memory is affected.”

“Shut up! You don’t know me!” Dean says. It’s pathetic even to his ears.

“She said lilac,” Castiel repeats.

They end up going with amethyst, which, in Dean’s opinion, is a prettier colour than lilac or mauve anyway. When the bridesmaids’ dresses are delivered, the girls love them and Jess is delighted.

“Thank you so much for arranging this, you guys,” she says. “The colour is gorgeous.”

Castiel and Dean shoot each other dirty looks.

“I maintain that she said lilac,” Castiel hisses, and before Dean can retort, he’s being pulled away by Jess to coo over how beautiful the bridesmaids look in their amethyst dresses.

As always, skip over this one if you're not comfortable with the language - the main character does swear a lot canonically, so I had to include it! ;) But if you're looking for a bit of a stress reliever from exams/life in general, please do give it a read - it's around 6k words, I believe. I'd love to hear your thoughts! x

love, Topaz
