SPN fic for the newbie (no, not me)

It's been more than half a year since I really *read* SPN fic. Sure, here and there I clicked a link and bounced a lot, but I haven't really gone on an SPN reading spree in like, forever.

The thing is, I'm looking through all the fics in my mems and bookmarks so I can get a list of fics/recs for luci0logy (wait, not her but for her friend). I'm not really up to date on the latest and greatest so I decided to ask y'all since there are several peeps on my f-list who:

a) read SPN fic
b) write SPN fic
c) rec SPN fic
d) have friends who do the above

So. I'm looking for fics for the peeps who've watched the show but haven't really explored the fandom. I want the gen, slash, wincest, RPS and yes, even the het. Oh and the rec lists.

And not just the authors. I mean sure, you can say lyra_wing is a fabulous writer in the fandom, but it would be even better if you could mention a fic or two by her that would be great for non-shippers/newbies (as an introduction).

I'll be listing the fics I find as well as those from comments.

WTF

The public beta of the Safari browser has been released - so now you can get Safari for windows.

And we are suppose to find this wonderful? Really? When it comes to browsers I want the extra features - the extra stuff that lets me do stuff besides surfing the net - which is already available in both Opera and Firefox.

And if I want something slim and fast to browse with? Again, Opera and Firefox.

My point is that, they don't really have anything that's making me go "wow".

Right now they're tooting Safari as the fastest browser on earth. Ha. Their numbers in seconds:

  LaunchJavascript  HTML
Safari  1.74 .88 2.14
 IE 2.22 1.72 3.67
 FF 2.34 2.48 4.63
 Opera 1.82 .98 6.22

They tested it on ONE computer and did a total of THREE tests - until they could find something they seemed to be faster in. Umm, guys - you need some pointers. Also, a lot of issues. But it *is* a beta.

Ok, so Mac products are nice and shiny - but man, do they seem overhyped at the moment. I kind of glad I got rid of my iPod.
