Let's hope LJ behaves. ::crosses fingers::

Once again, much love to geckoholic for making the beautiful, seasonal banner. Thank-youuu for making this whole thing possible. <333 YOU ARE OUR HERO.

A Winter/Holiday themed
Dean-focused h/c comment-fic meme

Banner courtesy of geckoholic @ bl00dredskies


A few ground-rules:

01. Per your request, we’re having a winter/holiday themed meme this time around! That means we’re looking for prompts involving Christmas, New Year’s, hypothermic snuggles, boys getting snowed in the middle of a hunt leading to yet more hypothermic snuggles, de-aged!Dean and Santa!Sam, idek. The list is endless, really; as long as the prompts relate even VAGUELY to winter-time, they’re game. We’re not picky. ;D

This being the comm it is, prompts should of course also include Dean-centric h/c.

02. Comment to this post with your desired characters or pairings, and a prompt. All genres/pairings are welcome, however this is not an RPF meme. Please focus on the fictional characters only.

Example: Gen, Dean, Sam. It’s not the first Christmas Dean’s spent in the hospital.

03. You can leave as many prompts as you like, but one prompt per comment, please. If you've got a few, comment with each separately.

04. Your prompts can be as short or as detailed as you’d like.

05. Scroll through the comments and when/if you find a prompt you like, write a fic in reply to the comment.

06. More than one comment-fic response to a prompt is totally acceptable, and in fact encouraged. The more fic, the better!

07. Art submissions are very much accepted too! Large art should be posted as a thumbnail that links back to the full art, please.

08. When replying to a prompt with your comment-fic or art, put 'FILLED' in your subject line as well as warning for anything that might be triggering, such as non-con, self-harm, etc. You can add anything else you want too, ie: a title if you have one/part numbers. So, your subject line should look something like this:

FILLED: Title, Character(s), genre/pairing(s), Rating, Warning(s) - if any

For further clarification:

Example: FILLED: Untitled, Dean and Sam, gen, PG-13, self-harm

No worries if you don’t do all of this, but using 'FILLED' as well as warnings will make it easier for people to find your fic, and for me when I’m compiling the masterlist.

09. Anonymous posting is enabled in case you’re embarrassed by your schmoopiest of schmoopy hurt/comfort fantasies or something, haha. IP logging will also be off during the weeks the meme is at it’s most active.

10. No spoilers for upcoming episodes, please.

If you're prompting something from a recently aired episode, please be courteous and note that there may be spoilers before you get to the main part of your request. Or you can use the following code. Just put your prompt/text where it says to:


It will look like this:


11. Likewise, no character bashing, or rudeness in general. Be respectful – of the characters, and of each other. The mods reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments.

12. Do feed your authors! They’re awesome.

13. If you want to advertise this, that’s fantastic! It would be really appreciated. Just copy and paste the code provided above into your journal.


When leaving feedback on a fanwork, remember to press 'reply' directly to the comment you're replying to, rather than pressing 'leave a comment' to the post itself, so that your comment goes to where you want it to. ;)


  • Yes, if your fic gets too long for a comment-fic, you can comment with the link to it at your LJ.

  • Yes, you can totally post the fics you write for this meme directly to the comm as well.

  • Because it bears repeating - yes, art is more than welcome as well as fic.

  • As for a timeframe - Themed memes like this one remain open for prompting until we see things starting to slow down. So, awhile! ;) And you’ll know it’s closed for prompting because a mod will tack a big, bolded note that says so at the bottom of this page. In any case, the meme will stay open indefinitely for new comment-fics and comments/feedback.

Any other questions? Feel free to PM us at the hoodietime account, or e-mail hoodietime [at] gmail [dot] com.

Have funnn! And happy holidays! <3


ETA: As of Januray 18th, 2012, this meme is closed for leaving new prompts. It is still OPEN, however, (and will be indefinitely) for new comment-fics and comments/feedback, and we’ll keep updating the masterlist as long as people keep writing. ;)

I’m stealing from my example prompt. Any genre. Whatever this prompt makes you think of, go with it:

It’s not the first Christmas Dean’s spent in the hospital.

I am, I guess, in some way... writing this... gimme a few more days? 2 tops... :)) okay?! :))

Dean, Sam, any genre. In the dead of winter, and probably not helped by all the crappy, cold weather, season 7 era Dean gets pneumonia and doesn't take care of it properly (it's his subconscious or maybe not so subconscious suicide/death wish coming through) and ends up in the hospital, very sick.

Um, SECONDED. I'm so obsessed with s7!Dean.

s7!era, de-aged!Dean, gen.

s7!Dean is terrified of the idea of ‘taking care of himself’ because it’s such a foreign concept to him, and also it means dealing with issues he’s not ready to deal with. Then he gets de-aged and suddenly he’s this KID who literally CAN'T take care of himself, and Sam (and possibly Bobby) are re-searching ways to kill Leviathans and being all productive and Dean can’t hunt, and they won’t let him drink, and he can’t even seem to keep his emotions in check the way he did as an adult, and being so small brings up all these memories up of being so young and helpless and how he still feels that way years later underneath everything, and basically, it’s not a good time. At some point, he has a major meltdown to rival every 4-year old kid meltdown there has ever been. ;_;

In the meantime, Sam tries to give them a real Christmas in an attempt to make Dean feel better. He maybe even gets them a tree! There, it’s a seasonal prompt now!

Warning: prompt contains reference to mental illness.

Dean, Sam, any genre. Christmas and/or New Year's Eve + Dean in the psych ward. The reason for this can by anything – natural or supernatural, any time frame, although I would explode with love if it were set in s7, ft. clinically depressed Dean. /o\

I want to make this happen.
4th-Dec-2011 02:46 pm (UTC)

Let me grab some coffee and I'm gonna be all over this =D

All he/she wanted for Christmas was a Ken-Dean doll. Was that really so much to ask?
4th-Dec-2011 10:54 pm (UTC)
wow, creepy, seconded^^
4th-Dec-2011 02:52 pm (UTC)
Pre-series: They've lived in this crappy little town for almost a whole year, and 14-yr-old Sam is all over making this a Real Christmas(tm). Dean's bought in enough that he's determined to get presents. But it's the 24th, he's just back from a hunt, whatever virus this is, is kicking his ass, and he hasn't got any presents yet.

He might have a cold, flu, or freaking Martian Death Virus, but by God Dean Winchester is Going Shopping.

I am going to go all schmoopy and romance-y as the holidays are :P

Any season, Dean/Sam get-together. I don't care how, what or when, just make it fluffy, schmoopy, holiday-y *grin* (Although I am a sucker for angst, so if you can slip that in? Brownie-points!)
4th-Dec-2011 02:56 pm (UTC)
Just to be clear, I still want some kind of hurt!sick!sneezy!snotty!Dean! :P
4th-Dec-2011 02:55 pm (UTC)
Christmas tree ornaments are really breakable. Hand wounds bleed like a bitch.

I don't even care how Dean got his hands on the shiny ^^

4th-Dec-2011 02:56 pm (UTC) - snowbound!
In the middle of the winter, they’re snowbound in their motel. Dean is SICK with the flu and since they can’t get out to get any cold/flu meds, he has to go without them. It’s aspirin instead of TheraFlu, toilet paper instead of Kleenex. Maybe they are without power/heat if you want to make it really dire. Anyway, Dean is a freezing cold, sneezy, wheezy, pukey, miserable mess, and Sam is awesome.

Gen or S/D is fine.
4th-Dec-2011 02:59 pm (UTC)
So, S7 spoilers:
Shortly after the doubling by the Leviathans. They're off the grid, no power, no heating, cold showers, no way they can just show up in a hospital, and Dean doesn't see a need to mention the (insert sickness of your choice here) to Sam. Nothing to be done about it, anyway, so what's the use? But the constant cold doesn't help things at all, and then the fever hits...

I've been waiting for fic like this since the episode. There has been some, but I want MORE.
4th-Dec-2011 03:01 pm (UTC)
The boys need to take care of this poltergeist/spirit/supernatural entity of the week that's haunting the local shopping mall, but really, all Dean wants to do is take a crowbar to every single loudspeaker in the place. If he has to listen to Jingle Bell Rock one more time...
4th-Dec-2011 09:49 pm (UTC)
I'm sure he'd be doing everyone who works there a favor, haha.
4th-Dec-2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
Gen, any season but 7.
It must be freezing. Dean can tell, because the windows are frosted. Because he can see his breath. Because the blood on his hands (why is there blood on his hands?) feels like dry, red ice.
He knows it must be cold out here in the middle of the dark, quiet street, but he can't feel a thing.
4th-Dec-2011 03:16 pm (UTC)
I meant "LOOKS like dry, red ice", sorry.
4th-Dec-2011 03:05 pm (UTC)
Young!Dean wants to surprise Uncle Bobby and Sammy (who are out Christmas shopping, perhaps?) by putting up Christmas decorations all around Bobby's house. That old ladder is pretty rickety, but Dean knows he can reach if he stretches just a little bit farther...

Instead of coming home to a decorated house, Bobby and Sam come home to a pretty badly hurt Dean.

Dean has always been embarrassingly prone to sunburns. Dad drags them along on a hunt on some snowy mountain, which should be fine, because cold equals no threat to his stupid, sensitive skin, right?

Bonus points for bratty teenage Sam who couldn't be more amused.
