Merlin/Arthur: Face Up Here

Louder Than Words [Merlin/Arthur fic]

Title: Louder Than Words
Author: cheerfulcricket 
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,558
Characters/Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Warnings: none
Summary: "Merlin is giggling uncontrollably as they stumble into their apartment and Arthur can't for the life of him remember why. But maybe that's because he's drunk. Come to think of it, maybe that's also why Merlin is laughing."
Disclaimer: I sadly do not own these boys or anything about them. I admit to kidnapping and getting them exceptionally drunk but I promise I'll give them back as soon as I'm done!
A/N: Because Arthur and Merlin make the best modern AUs...

Dean: Hello Kitty

The Family Business [gen Sam, Dean fic]

Title: The Family Business
Author: cheerfulcricket 
Rating: PG
Word Count: 693
Characters: Dean, Sam (gen)
Warnings: Goofiness and unnecessary swearing (but hey, they have to fight monsters, I'd swear a lot too)
Summary: In which Sammy is the more manly Winchester. But only just.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters, I'm just bullying them because I know they'll never be mine (and they're so damn cute!)
A/N: Completely ridiculous short little "what if?" hunt-fic. I was rewatching some Season One and it reminded me why I first fell in love with these babies! For my au_bingo</lj> prompt Alternate History: Personal Life of a Character Changed (hopefully this counts...)

Dean/Cas: He Fell...

Just a Human [Dean/Castiel fic]

Title: Just a Human
Author: cheerfulcricket
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,224
Characters/Pairing: Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel (implied), Dean/Gabriel (referred to)
Warnings: spoilers through season five, I guess (though I don't make many specific references...) mentions of infidelity, intoxication and ill-advised sexual encounters...
Summary: "Maybe talking about it wouldn’t be such a bad thing after all. Sure, chick-flick heart-to-hearts fall right at the top of his things-he’d-rather-be-eaten-by-a-werewolf-than-do list, but it would be sort of nice to have a chance to explain himself. He always crushes the thought down, though. After all, it’s not like there’s actually anything he can explain."
Disclaimer: Not my characters or premise. They've been borrowed so I could make them do some things I'm sure they want to do and other things they probably don't. Apologies for any psychological damage I might have caused them.
A/N: Even though I kind of completely hate the idea of Dean cheating, I had fun imagining the way all the other characters would react so I found myself writing this anyway. This is for my ard for the prompt Alternate History: Someone Never Died because I am a firm believer that Gabriel is out there somewhere (and Cas deserves to have a big bro around to have his back)

Hungry [Merlin fic]

Title: Hungry
Author: cheerfulcricket 
Pairing: Merlin/Gwaine
Rating: PG
Warnings: AU, dark and angst-full
Word Count: 1,304
Summary: "Where he should have some sense of being, of his place in the great swirl of humanity, there is nothing. Emptiness. As if great chunks of his existence were ripped away, leaving him with nothing but a pair of puncture wounds and a clamoring sense of wrongness."
Disclaimer: Not my boys, just temporarily stealing them... I apologize for any damage they might receive.
A/N: Okay, this is for my au_bingo square for the prompt Fantasy & Supernatural: Vampires. It didn't turn out at all the way I intended but I might write some additional parts because I've kind of become intrigued... (and I want Arthur to happen!) Anyway, enjoy!

Dean: Awesome

Weird [Dean/Castiel fic]

Title: Weird
Author: cheerfulcricket 
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Warnings: none
Word Count: 2,769
Summary: “This is probably the stupidest thing you’ve tried to do all…” Dean paused and thought a little, “Week.” After all, Cas was always asking him to do stupid stuff. Stretched out in front of the fireplace like a lazy cat, Cas turned on the pitiful eyes and Dean sighed. “Fine,” he snapped, “But I’m not stopping doing my homework.”
Disclaimer: Not my characters, I'm just borrowing them without permission and using them out of context. All apologies.
A/N: A bit of high school AU fun (probably one of my favorite kinds) Please enjoy and forgive the silliness, freak!Cas just makes me chuckle!

Gabe: Do I look like an angel?

Out of the Storm [Sam/Gabriel fic]

Title: Out of the Storm
Author: cheerfulcricket 
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Gabriel, Dean
Warnings: Season 5 spoilers, I guess. If you know who Gabriel is it's fine :)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,594
Summary: Sam always sort of figured Gabriel would taste like candy. He'd gotten used to the jolly Trickster image Gabriel had adopted, self-confident, self absorbed. Been distracted by the theatrics and the banter, and yes, the ever-present smell of indulgence.
Disclaimer: These babies don't belong to me, I'm just playing in their sandbox for a little while and then Kripke can have them back.
A/N: So, I meant for this to be cute and schmoopy but then it turned sort of angsty... oops :) Basically, I went back and cut some of the past out: the Apocalypse is over and Sam and Dean are back to hunting (occasionally with a little angelic company)

Characters/Pairings: Merlin/Arthur, Morgana, Gwen, Lancelot
Warnings: deliciously excessive angsty highschooler!Arthur, schmoop/fluff/silliness

Summary: The thing is, everyone knows. All of Arthur’s friends and Merlin’s friends know. His parents know. His friends’ parents know. Merlin’s mother knows. The whole wide fucking world knows. Everyone, that is, except for Merlin...
Disclaimer: I TOTALLY don't own these characters, just borrowing them for a little harmless fun. They will be returned with as little damage as possible (I promise...)
A/N: un-beta-ed so all mistakes are my own! This is my first Merlin/Arthur fic and I know the characterization isn't entirely accurate...  Just a little high school AU fun because you can never have too many of them ;) And a little fanart from the delightful iichristinll right here
