Fanfic Request - Reposted: I'm still looking for a story I can love and hug and make-out with:
I would love to have someone grab the idea of a SPN crossover with BTVS, S8. The parameters would be that it takes
place post S8, #39:
I would like to have a fic where post-Seed shattering, Castiel is stranded with Dean & Sam - cut off from Heaven and his reality- warper/teleport powers. With Cas being emotionally devastated by his severing from Heaven, and with him knowing enough that something has occurred in California that is the cause, Sam, Dean & Castiel head out there to find and correct whatever has gone wrong.
They eventually figure out what happened and then hunt down Buffy to confront her about her Slayer Army and what she's done to Castiel.
Emotional freak out by Cas
Road Trip footage of Dean, Sam and Castiel with the Winchesters trying to hold Castiel together. Bonus for Dean being completely freaked out at Castiel's emotional/psychological pain.
Dean's confronting of Buffy over what she's done being filled with pissed-unforgiving!Dean toward her and her not being full of "I'm-such-a-bad-person, look-what-I-did" about it. Dean & Sam weren't there, so they don't know what was going on or why she took the actions she did. She should tell them so. Bonus if Cas recognizes Buffy as the Slayer and ends up defending her choice, despite the effects on himself.
The Winchesters deciding on a plan of action to undo what Buffy did. Bonus for Sam only reluctantly helping his brother, because he's more in tune with Buffy's decision after talking to her. Bonus for the Scooby Gang being involved in trying to do the same thing -- or actively resisting the Winchester's efforts (or a split Scooby Gang). Bonus Points if they ultimately fail and Castiel has to face that Earth is cut off from the Higher Plains indefinitely.
Must Not Include:
Any of the Scooby Gang/Winchesters/Castiel being killed by each other. A bit of Dark is fine, but let's not go ax-crazy with it, please [Though character death is acceptable! I just don't want it to be murder against one another].
Giles not having died [at least not before the story starts]. It is important to Buffy's emotional confrontation against Dean's anger.
Making the Winchesters or Buffy the villain of the piece. Ultimately, this is a situation - not villainy on either of their parts. I'm much more interested in character dynamics and emotional storytelling rather than having a hero vs. bad guy tale where one of our heroes clearly did an awful thing and must suffer.
Any rating, any pairing (or none at all), any ending your Muse tells you is appropriate, Bonus Suggestions above are just that - not requirements to include!
First and foremost, Have Fun With It.
And, obviously please comment with linkage. Also, anyone who has read any stories where this has been approached or addressed from the SPN POV, I would love to know about it!
