It's November 2, an auspicious (if ominous) day for our darling Sam, so to herald his introduction to The Red Stuff, let's revisit an annual tradition. Welcome to the OhSam Triple Play 2016!
This year, we're offering a focus on a reoccurring theme in Sam's life: blood
"Blood" could be interpreted in many ways. Family don't end with blood. The demon blood addiction. Injury. Familial woes. Blood magicks. Simply the color red. If it can be related to blood, even vaguely? IT'S ON POINT.

Hey, OhSammers! We've been experiencing a rash of spambot posts lately. Until LJ gets them under wraps, we're moderating all posts to the comm. I suspect it'll end soon, but we'll approve your recs ASAP! And hopefully, we can change the moderation status sooner rather than later.
Title: Heart's DesireGenre/Spoilers: Sam and Dean Gen. None.
Summary: Sam and Dean are trying to adjust to life in retirement, something they never thought they'd live to see. Future/curtain fic with plenty of h/c.
Warnings: Minor language, permanent injury, and a Harry Potter reference that required some Google research and a little artistic license.
Word Count: 4100+
Disclaimer: I don't own Supernatural that privilege belongs to CW, Kripke and Co, I'm simply borrowing them for a while. I'm not making a profit, this is just for fun and all the standard disclaimers apply.Heart's Desire
Title: Thief In The Night
Characters: Sam, Dean, John (in flashbacks)
Word count: ~1000
Summary: So I'm working on a new verse, and I don't know where it's going yet, but the first fic is up and you can read it here. Set right after Bad Day At Black Rock, Dean is patching up Sam's gunshot wound and worrying, but not about Sam's arm...
And I want you to help me design this verse! Go here and leave a prompt involving your favorite point on the SPN timeline. My only requirement is that it more or less recognizes established canon (shipping is fine) and that I get to write some cool sam centric h/c. And I'm going to do my best to make the whole thing internally consistent. But challenge me
Hey, it's been a while. I've been working on one fic for about a year now (health issues are kicking my ass). Posted the first 3 chapters today.
It's basically a lot of altered, dissociative, vulnerable Sam being cared for by Dean, Ellen and (somewhat) Bobby. Here it is *cracking a super-nervous smile* Please note the warnings, though. Thanks!
Title: Away from These Shores
Characters: Sam, Dean (main), Ellen, Bobby
Word count: Three chapters = 9202 words
Spoilers: up to 8.01. This is not really Season 8-related though, it’s pretty standalone.
Summary: A simple hunt leaves Sam in an altered state no one seems able to explain – at first. Pulling him out of it is not nearly as easy as it should be.
This is a semi-AU in which Cas didn't survive Swan Song, Bobby wasn’t there for the cemetery showdown, and both he and Ellen are still around. Sam escaped the Cage with his soul intact, but not without a price.
Warnings: Language, general reference to trauma in The Cage; kidnapping (though not central). While this fic has no sexual content, and violence is only occasionally referenced, it deals with loss of power and with severe lack of autonomy, which can still be triggering to some. If you are a trauma survivor – especially if you're dissociative – consider skipping this one.
Disclaimer: Supernatural, its characters, plot lines etc. belong to their awesome creators. I am merely suggesting fun new ways in which those beloved characters could suffer even more.
Sam's gaze seems to linger on something across the room, up by the ceiling. Dean can't see anything there but cobwebs. He gently slides a hand under the back of Sam's neck to support his head as he dips his chin, moving Sam’s face down a bit to get in his brother’s direct line of vision. Glassy hazel eyes stare right through him, pupils dilated. No no no no no.
