chewbaccaaah asked: I eagerly await the next chapter in the big bowman and small Jacob story! Bowman walks up to the village and everyones gonna be like wtf?!, and then they notice small Jacob and then theres even MORE wtf???!?! Bowman what did you do???!


Oh my gosh yes. He’s sure they can’t possibly blame him for what happened, because obviously he doesn’t have the magic for this! And yet. Somehow, he must have done something, otherwise they wouldn’t have a giant sprite and a sprite-sized giant on their hands. His aunt will fuss him out for this before he can get a word in.

I’m so glad you’re enjoying that story! ❤  I can’t wait to have enough to post the next part.

I think this one would have to be set in the Brothers Found au, sometime after the events of Jacob in Wonderland.

Maybe it’s a dream, or maybe the trickster couldn’t resist coming back to poke at him, but it would start with Jacob finding himself at his extra-tiny size again, well after he was sure he’d never have to deal with that again. Between the terrifying flashbacks and the absurdity of trying to figure out what to do, it’d be a bit of a ride.

He’d wake up on his bed at home and his eyes would get super wide as he realized what happened. The mouse that he befriended during his misadventures would also be fretting for him as he tried to work out what to do. Can he call Sam and Dean? Can he even get to his phone, let alone open it to make a call?

Lucky his family would be out of the house to start with; he’d have some time to figure something out.

Anonymous: Subtle Overprotective Syndrome

A fisherman heads out on his rickety boat, determined to catch enough to sell at the last market before he has to pack up all the supplies and think about setting up for winter. The waves are choppy and his family insists he doesn’t go, but if he doesn’t make enough money to buy supplies they might not make it through the harsh coastal winter.

He’s skilled out on the water, and does manage to net quite a few fish, but he lingers out there too long. The waves get to be much taller than his little boat, and it’s getting harder and harder to control it, to aim it for the safer shore and not the harsh rocks.

Knowing there will be some I-told-you-so’s, he flashes a desperate signal to anyone that might be waiting at the shore: S O S.

And someone answers, but not exactly who he’d expect. There’s a giant living in the hills near the shore, and that’s who wades out into the choppy water like it’s little more than a diving pool. 

At first the fisherman doesn’t even see what’s happening amidst the high waves and clouded sky, until a rush of water beneath catches his attention.

Then his boat rises on what he thinks is a swell of a wave at first, until it just keeps going up. A hand big enough to cradle the whole fishing boat in its palm lifts him free of the battering waves and cups it close to a huge, hunched chest.

The giant almost never involves himself in the affairs of the small fishing village, but this time he carries the foolish little fisherman back to shore … and all the way up into the hills despite his calls to let him off at home.

It takes a night and a day to convince the giant that he’s not about to go back to the water.

Honestly, the first thing that comes to mind for this one is a borrower getting the hiccups at the Worst. Possible. Time.

This after bragging to another borrower that they’re one of the best out there at sneaking in and out of a huge room without anyone noticing, and getting all the best stuff. Commence the hiccups and the mad dash for cover while the human tries to figure out what that intermittent, tiny squeaking noise is. Meanwhile their buddy is back in the walls going back and forth between worrying they’ll be seen and finding this the funniest thing they’ve seen in ages.

I could see this happening to Chase Lisong and his sister Minnie, if they were borrowers. It shouldn’t take too many guesses to figure out which one is the dork with the hiccups.

How fun. You’re coming up with some great titles to make me think of story ideas!

For this one I’d have to write something for giant!Jacob. I’ve already written about the moment he became giant, but I haven’t done as much yet with the time in between then and when the Winchester brothers found him.

The story would probably be about him adjusting to his life in the wilderness, suddenly a lot bigger than anyone was ever meant to be. He’d have to find shelter, water, and food, and lots of it. All without happening across other people, who tend to scream and freak out when they see him. This, of course, wouldn’t be so easy for him, being over a hundred feet tall.

It would be a lot to get used to, and Growth Pains would be a perfect title for such a misadventure.

Phoenix said: Made-Up title: Beans and Sprouts

This is so cute and it immediately makes me think of the name for baby wood sprites, so of course the story would involve them somehow.

The story would start with Jacob making another visit to the Wellwood forest. He’d bring with him a book he found at the library while he was browsing around: Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, in which the tiny folk call people like him Beans. If nothing else, he’d be thinking it’s an amusing thing to show Bowman and the other sprites his age, who never run out of fascination for the things he brings to the woods.

Before getting close to the village, though, Jacob would hear a tiny little voice. Two tiny nestlings, wandering too far past the stream, got lost with the village out of sight and with no patrolsprites nearby to notice.

Not every sprite in Wellwood is 100% on board with Jacob and how enormous he is, and he’s extra big to these poor lost nestlings. They can’t even fly up to bop him like that Bowman Leafwing does all the time. Jacob wouldn’t want to frighten them even more, but there’s no way he’s going to leave them on their own, even to go and find someone to come carry them; the village isn’t far for him, but it’s enough of a trip that something could befall them before he got back.

Luckily, he has a whole book with him, with fascinating stories of tiny people a lot like the sprites that live near the giant human beans. With no idea what else to do and them huddling away from his hands, Jacob would read to the poor sprouts until someone on patrol heard him and came to investigate to get the kiddos home.

Anonymous Message: Giants?!

I just had a mental image of Jacob and Bowman talking about mythical creatures and Jacob mentioning giants, and then Bowman being both indignant and amazed at the idea of a giant to Jacob of all people😂 I don’t know how much sense that makes, but how do you think that would go down??


Oh my goodness. Bowman would be so offended by the notion that there are even bigger giants out there, or that humans at least used to think so. He’s already dubious of the fact that Jacob isn’t the tallest human there is (hearing that the tallest human on record was nearly 9 feet tall might just send him fluttering into a fit).

Jacob, of course, would have to bring it up at some point if they got to talking about mythical creatures. Of all the ones he’s heard of, giants would get the most amusing reaction, aside from the notion he has of fairies. Sprites think fairies are just little orbs of light, and Bowman is especially resistant to the idea that he looks like one.

Bowman might just have to bop his human for all this nonsense.

A crosspost from BAMultiverse:

myimaginedairybeard asked:

It kinda looks as if BC Dean is even MORE afraid of heights than the one in BL. Is this because of the airplane? I mean, we have bad Oscar had dealt with it in the Sad Oscar au (SAVE HIM °^°) speaking of oz, the Sad Oscar au was the first time/au Oz had used his Pyrokinesis knack (you once said that if he had a knack this would be it. And cooling off a burning hot metal seems to fit that title of fire power), so does that mean we’re going to see it soon enough in other aus as well?

@nightmares06

Oh wow, this ask went in a few unexpected directions on its way to the end! 

I’ll leave the Oscar stuff to neon 

Dean in Brothers Consulted is absolutely more afraid of heights and flying than his Lost or canon SPN counterparts. It went from a basic phobia to a full-fledged PTSD. 

He’s coming to terms with hitching a ride on Sherlock’s shoulder, with the help of the scarf for support and to help hide the surroundings, but he’s not good when it comes to getting picked up and lifted without warning. 

Given time, he’ll get through those reactions, but planes. PLANES. He’s never going to be able to ride an airplane without a full-blown panic reaction, hyperventilating and losing sight of if he’s with friends or enemies. 

That plane ride happened when they were kids, they were trapped in a box, the entire world rattled around them for a full 10 hours before disembarking in a place where Dean had never been. Any fear of heights he ever had amped up several levels higher. 

The saddest part is Dean wouldn’t fully realize this until he’s on a plane and it turns on, because it’s triggered by the sounds more than the sights.

@neonwrite

😉

I am so pleased that you noticed that detail! It wasn’t a very obvious moment, but you are correct that Oscar’s pyrokinesis knack activated in the Sad Oscar AU when he was being branded (which is why even he didn’t realize it – he was far too busy being upset and terrified and in pain). Now that we know Sad Oscar AU is actually Brothers Consulted, we might just see how he eventually further develops that ability!  Dean’s gonna be so jealous.

As for other AUs, I’m always looking for opportunities to give him a reason for his knack to appear. Since he was born a wee borrower, it will only show up if he has a true need for it, and a need for the ability to manipulate fire doesn’t come along often. But don’t think we’re above stressing the little guy out with some fire someday!

Reader Message: Goldfish?

Wolfie180g: I was hoping we might be able to read the nanowrimo you wrote? Bubbles? I reread all the excerpts and I really wanna know more! It’s such a new take on g/t I’m so excited and anxious for Seth and his encounter . What happened with the tiger?? 
Lol there’s an eels song called ‘tiger in the tank’


Of course! The story you’re thinking of is Goldfish, my NaNoWriMo project for November of 2018. I actually came very close to the ending of the story at the time I left off with NaNo! Since then I’ve been taking a little break from writing every day at such a pace, since I’ve been working on stuff all year. Soon, though, I want to come back to poor Seth’s misadventures and wrap them up, edit a little bit, and share with everyone!

(I’ll have to give that song a listen 🙂 )

Thanks for writing in! You’re officially the first person to use the Askbox here on the new blog! ❤

Some news for the Unnamed Sad Oscar AU!

Brothers Apart

myimaginedairybeardasked:

Does the unnamed Sad Oscar AU takes place in Brothers Consulted?

Oh gosh. You’re the first person to guess that!

Theunnamed Sad Oscar AUis indeed secretly a part ofBrothers Consulted. At some point during the writing of it, my cowriters couldn’t stand it any longer, and through nudges and some Upset conversations, it was decided that he needed a rescue inBrothers Consulted. So that“The End?” on the last installment was a red herring! It’s not truly the end of the Sad Oscar AU. Everything after that, well, it involves a Plot fromBrothers Consultedthat you will all have to wait and see (luckily it got voted in as the next story, so you’ll get closer to being able to guess the answer).

Of course, with BC and Oscar that means he willhaveto meet the Baker Street crew someday. One…
