Summary: Three years after he turned in his horse and scattergun for frock coats and textbooks, Sam Winchester is tracked down to upstart Stanford University by his estranged brother Dean, who arrives with the news that their father has gone missing. His disappearance turns out to be only the first of a series of events that takes them all the way across an alternate America circa 1905, from the death of Sam's girlfriend to a haunting in Nebraska, from demonic omens to spiritualists to hijacked airships, and inevitably a long-delayed trip home. John Winchester isn't anxious to be found, but his sons are convinced that the family is stronger together than apart and don't let anything stand in the way of their pursuit. Especially once they realize that pursuing their father means staying on the trail of the demon who killed their mother. A demon who isn't finished with the Winchesters just yet.
Reccer's Comments: I actually read this, and fell in love with it, before having seen a single episode of the show! But I adore it even more now after watching the entire first season and into the second. cjmarlowe has successfully rendered the spirit of the Winchester's and their story to an even more fascinating time period in America. And it isn't merely a rehash of Kripke's show but an alternate adventure!
Reccer's Caveats: Even if you aren't ready to jump into reading a novel length fanfic, click to view tammylee's wonderful artwork. Dean in a fly boy jacket! Sam in a frock coat! Tessa, Dean's version of a Model T..... And listen to the soundtrack while you view the pics. You won't be sorry!

Summary: AU. Veteran FBI agent Victor Henriksen isn't at all happy when a rookie ATF agent horns in on his investigation of a possible serial arsonist. Still, Agent Winchester's forensics expertise does come in useful. But as the clues and the bodies pile up, Victor begins to suspect that his new partner knows more than he's telling about the case.
Reccer's Comments: I browsed your del.icio.us and know this was already recc'd here but so far as I'm concerned, the praises of this cannot be sung often enough! This is absolutely fabulous writing. Totally, best seller cop fic, case file stuff. This could be a pilot for a spin-off TV show.
