Sam-Centric Very AU Recs  
Title: The Day The World Went Away
Author scribblesinink
Rating: Teen
Length/Word Count: ~14,500
Summary: Sam finds himself in a world where he doesn't exist.
Reccer's Comments: This is a parallel world AU in which Sam discovers what life would be like for the Winchesters if he didn't exist. Sam's relationships with his family in the parallel world -- especially with John -- are wonderfully drawn, and the course of their lives if the yellow-eyed demon hadn't turned up seems very realistic. Of course, even in parallel worlds, the supernatural isn't absent, and Sam discovers he was sent to this world at this particular time for a purpose. On top of that, there's an awesome appearance from Missouri, whom we don't see enough of in stories, who helps Sam get back to his own world.
Reccer's Caveats: There's some brief examination of Sam's relationship with Jess, given in this world Dean and Jess are married, but the story doesn't dwell on it.

Title: Specific Relativity
Author/Artist: gekizetsu
Rating: PG-13
Length/Word Count: 11,800 words
Warnings/Spoilers: Cuddling, mild angst, cuddling, humor, cuddling (author's warnings)
Summary: Something based off the song Unwell by Matchbox 20 (lyrics follow the tale), and an AU Sam who has always had visions and is not quite right as a result. Don’t worry; he’s mostly happy. Casefic; notquiteright!Sam and superprotective!Dean hunt for the ‘special children’ gone bad when they’re not hunting demons with their father.
Reccer's Comments: Of the hundreds of SPN fic I have bookmarked - this one is in my top 10 most beloved!
Reccer's Caveats: none. (Other than - if you're not a fan of cuddling, don't let the author's warnings deter you from reading this!)

Title: And Won the Soul's Rest
Author/Artist: concernedlily
Rating: PG
Length/Word Count: ~31,000
Summary: Sam of Winchester entered the Abbey five years ago. Now, his brother has come to get him out.
Reccer's Comments: This marvelous tale is a re-imagining of the Winchesters story and search for John set in Europe in the Middle Ages.
Reccer's Caveats: This story not only examines the Winchester family relationships but matters of faith, organized religion and excommunication and it's possible effect on the soul.

Title: Can't (But I Can)
Author/Artist: neppie
Rating: PG
Length/Word Count: 1,128 words
Summary: Just because you can’t hear, doesn’t mean you can’t. Sam has always been deaf and Dean has always been a little stupid.
Reccer's Comments: I'm a sucker for sign language use in fic, and this is a solid, real, brotherly moment in a world where Sam is Deaf...and Dean gets a bit of a revelation.
