Words: 1394

Notes: This is seriously the first crack fic I ever read about SPN, and now I can't stop. 

FIC REC - "Stroke Me"

This fic goes back quite a ways (August of 2007), but I remember it ohhhhh so well: I remember how it made me laugh until I couldn't breathe, until there were tears rolling down my face.

It only needs two words to describe it (or should that be one word?) -- GOLF!FIC.

From the marvelous kimonkey7's original post:
Title: Stroke Me
Author: kimonkey7
Pairing: none. gen. Sam and Dean
Rating: R - for swears and blatant implied sexual innuendo of the 12-year-old boy ilk
SPOILERS: Nothing specific, but assume through Heart.
WARNINGS: golf!fic. No, seriously.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Damn it.
Summary: Boys will be boys… Dirty, dirty, bad, bad boys.

Need more of a description? Sam and Dean play miniature golf.  And nonsense ensues.

(If you're not already familiar with kimonkey7 -- her work is stunning and gorgeous.  Beautifully drawn OCs, compelling plots, and the occasional wacky crack.  She hasn't written anything for a while, but if you're a lover of angst and massive Dean!whumpage, her library is well worth checking out!)

A quick note from the mods...

First of all ... WELCOME to all the new members!  We are *thrilled* to see the comm growing so fast, in its first few days of existence!

Remember that you can contribute in any number of ways:  by posting your own work (fic, art, vids, etc.), or by reccing someone else's; by commenting on the posts you enjoy; or by spreading the word!  We've got a couple of banners you can use, and we hope to have some icons available in the next few days.

A request:  if you rec someone else's work, please leave a note for them in their original post, so they'll know about the rec -- and hopefully, they'll come over and join the fun!

We've had some questions come up re: what's allowed here at the comm.  Maybe this will help you out:

--  We want the members (and the lurkers!) to come away from an spn_bigpretzel  post with a smile on their faces.  (Or, laughing so hard they can't breathe.)  If there's a little angst involved, that's fine, but the overall tone should be light.  Ideally, we shouldn't have to *warn* for anything.

--  Whump is fine if it's funny.  Keep Bad Day at Black Rock in mind.

--  For R and NC-17 rated sexin' -- make sure the atmosphere is *fun*.  Teasing, laughter.  Ridiculous use of toys.  Something that will make the reader smile and say "Awww."  Or laugh until their nose starts running.

--  Crack!fic is always welcome.

--  Schmoop is always welcome.  Curtain!fic.  Cuddling.  John having a sweet moment with his kids.  Some vintage Sam/Jess.

If you're still unsure whether something will fit, drop one of the mods a PM, and we'll be glad to help you out.

That's it for now, so GO!  Enjoy the comm!

3 funny fics

This comm is such a great idea! Hi everybody!
Here are three fics that might amuse you! Please note -all of them fall on the crack side of the spectrum ; )

First: I couldn't think of anything more fitting for a 'big-pretzel' comm, than the fic I wrote for worldwide_spn set in Bavaria!

Title:Noch Ein Bier, Bitte
Type: Gen
Characters/Pairing: Sam, Dean, OCs
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: ~2500
Warnings: crack based on an awesome piece of folklore
Summary: In the Bavarian alps, an old friend of Bobby's needs help hunting down a heinous beast. (set during season 3)


Second: This was written for ohsam for one of the funniest prompts I've ever seen: Sam lifts a car. Of course, Sam throws his back out doing it. Dean, now stuck helping Sam sit up, lie down, hobble to the bathroom, and drink from a straw, is tickled pink that his little brother can lift cars, and keeps cracking Terminator jokes and maybe forces him to watch Pumping Iron on the laptop while Sam can't move.

Title: Automatic Reflex
Type: Gen
Characters/Pairing: Sam, Dean, Bobby
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: ~1000


and lastly:

Title: Headhunters
a collection of bizarre job-offers Sam has received since he's done being Lucifer's vessel.

and thanks again to the mods/maintainers for making such a cool new community : D

Fanvid Rec: Love Me Some Pie

This video is full of Dean, mostly eating: pie,cake, cheeseburgers, and of course drinking beer. There are some angsty moments from Dean's death and time in Hell from "No Rest for the Wicked" and also some deaths from "Mystery Spot" (but I tend to categorize those under comedic deaths). The overall tone of the video though is Dean's love of food. Enjoy!


Two more fic recs

A couple more of my all-time favorites, of the "bust out laughing so hard you spit food all over your keyboard" variety.

Title:  Night Moves
Author:  researchgrrrl
Rating:  NC-17
Pairing:  Dean/OFC
Author's Summary:  Summary: Porn. For serious. That's it. Porn. Completely gratuitous, completely cracked-out porn. Wincest-free.

This dates way back to 2006, and was one of the first stories I found in SPN fandom.  The boys have been hunting a Springheel Jack.  They won.  They rescued the damsel in distress.  But there's a problem.  With glitter.
SMOKING hot.  And hilarious.


Title:  Socktacular Socktacular
Author:  angstslashhope
Rating:  PG-13
Genre:  Gen
Author's Summary:  Prank wars.  Following 2.15 Tall Tales.

"Dean leaves his dirty socks in the basin."
And things escalate from there.  It's a WAR of socks.  And...fluids.  Another vintage fic I'm *so* glad I kept on file.

A Couple of Funnies

Or at least I hope you all find them amusing. :D

After checking through my tags, I realized I had a couple of fics(one short and one long) that I could share here.

Please beware they are both uber cracktastic!

This was written in March of last year and it's the first thing that popped into my head when I read the prompts given for the month.

Title: So Not Helpful
Rating: PG-13 (for language)
Word Count: 272
Prompt: distort, genderbender
Characters/Pairings: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester
Summary: The moral of this little drabble is: Be careful who you ask for help.
A/N: writtten for fanfic_bakeoff
Disclaimer: Not mine :(

This was written in May of last year after a conversation I had with my daughter. Gnomes were mentioned and I said 'Because you know there's no place like gnome." I couldn't resist writing this.

Yeah, my mind is a scary place :D

Title:There's No Place Like Gnome
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,039
Characters/Pairing: Dean, Sam, Bobby
Summary: Dean and Sam get more than they bargain for when they p*ss off a witch
Warning: Cracktastic. There be fairy and a gnome here.
A/N: written because of a conversation with the talented smut_slut
A/N: There's also implied wincest.

My two Favorite humor fics

These are the two stories I keep coming back to when I need a laugh. (Well, the two that haven't been rec'd already, anyway.)

A Fashionable Profit
Teen Dean is modeling for some extra cash--with John's encouragement and (once Sammy finds out) his brother's disapproving lectures. Even as a teen, Dean had all the moves.

Accidents will Happen
John is resurrected from Hell by some wanna-be goth teenagers (and one little sister). 

Going to let the authors know now...

Fic Rec: Night of the Living Turkeys

Maybe it's because The Walking Dead is on tonight...

No boys, no pie. But there is Gabriel and turkeys- zombie turkeys. My sides hurt from laughing so much the first time I read it.

From the lovely inmh

GENRE: Humor, General, hints of Romance
SPOILERS: Season 5, Hammer of the Gods


Title: Shimmy
Author: Saberivojo
Characters:  John, Wee!Sam and Wee!Dean
Genre:  Gen, PG.  A little language
Summary. I needed some prompts so I asked.  embroiderama was kind enough to send this one my way:  John and the boys when the boys were fairly little and something goes wrong with the Impala while they're driving. Could be minor but annoying and Sammy won't stop remarking on it

SPN FIC - See the USA in Your Chevrolet

You've all been to those restaurants, right -- the ones where they provide placemats and crayons, so the little kids can color, and not make noise?

So have the Winchesters.

"If you're setting me up for something," Sam sighed, sinking a little lower into his side of the booth, as if that would protect him from whatever Dean had planned.  "Please don't."

CHARACTERS:  Sam and Dean
TIMELINE:  Sometime in Season 1
LENGTH:  1148 words

Welcome to the February icon contest!

Got a knack for making icons?  Then you've come to the right place!

Once a month, we'll be hosting a little icon-making challenge.  All you have to do is post 5 icons that fit our spn_bigpretzel theme, in one of these categories:

1)  Pie and Other Noms
2)  LOLz
3)  It's All About Family
4)  You&Me (Couples)
5)  Assorted

At the end of the month (in this case, February 29), we'll gather all the entries together and ask the members to vote for their favorites.  The winner gets a banner to post on their Profile page, and 500 LJ tokens.  At the end of the year, the monthly winners will go head-to-head, and the winner will receive LJ's biggest token package (3,000, worth $25) and a Grand Prize banner.

A little unsure about your artistic skills?  Give it a try anyway -- you never know what will capture your fellow members' fancy!

Have fun, and good luck!

And thank you [info]kalliel for reading this over and finding my missing letters for me. You rock!

Happy Halloween! )

Aaaaaand...welcome to the February fic contest!

You guys have been doing an awesome job of posting fic for your fellow members to enjoy, and we'd like to say "thank you" to all of you talented writers.

So, at the end of each month, we'll gather together the fic that's been posted during that month, and ask the members to vote for their favorites.  (This wouldn't count for recs; just for fic posted by the author, so that all the contestants are members of our little family.)  The winner will receive a banner to post on their Profile page, and 500 LJ tokens.

At the end of the year, we'll collect all the monthly winners, hold another vote, and the big winner will receive LJ's biggest token package, 3000 tokens (worth $25), and another banner.

For the shy folks who haven't yet posted a story: give it a whirl!  You might just have the story that will win your fellow members' hearts!

So...go!  Post.  Have fun!
Happy Dean 3 thumbs up

Not a writer? Not an artist? Be a Cheerio!

We know not all of you are writers or artists -- but you've got a ton of enthusiasm for SPN fandom, and for spn_bigpretzel.  Several of you have gotten right into the swing of things by posting recs and comments and other bits and pieces for your fellow members to enjoy, and we'd like to thank you for that.

Plus, we can use all the publicity we can get. *g*

So:  at the end of each month, the mods will take a look at those folks who've gone the extra mile to make the comm a fun place for everyone, and/or have advertised the comm at other comms and journals, and we'll pick a Chief Cheerio of the Month -- awarding the winner a banner for their Profile page and a package of 500 LJ tokens.

At the end of the year, we'll collect all the monthly winners, and the members will help us select Comm Cheerio of the Year -- winner to receive LJ's largest package of tokens, 3000 (worth $25), plus a banner.

Ready?  Go wave those pom-poms!!

My Silly/Lighthearted Buffy Crossover Fics

My two great fandom loves are SPN and BtVS, so I'm kind of obsessed with crossing them. Here's a list and links to my more lighthearted/sillier ones. All are rated PG-13 for language and/or light sexuality.

Grand Canyon:
My first story, so it holds a special place in my heart. Dean breaks his arm while the guys are in AZ, so Sam decides they should take a few days off and visit the Grand Canyon. They meet up with Buffy and Dawn. Obviously the vacation turns into a hunt. Some Buffy/Dean pre-romance. I wrote this pre-lj, so it's not posted here. Here be links: AO3 or FF.net or Twisting the Hellmouth

And the Winner Is... Bobby and Giles are at a mystical items auction and they are both competing for the same item. Good Times. On My LJ

It Sucks to Be the Grownup: Buffy's little sister Dawn is the 'Key to Purgatory' but she turns out to be more trouble than Cas bargained for. As usual, Dean suffers the consequences. Also, Sam is not quite Sam (in a cracky way) ever since Cas broke his wall. On My LJ

Need a Little Christmas: Buffy/Castiel holiday fluffiness. Dean acts as Cas' inner relationship-Yoda. On My LJ

In the Arms of an Angel -- by SamLicker 81: Becky Rosen (aka SamLicker81) hijacked my journal and wrote possibly the worst piece of fanfiction since My Immortal. Contains non-graphic Wincest and of course Sam/Becky. Technically a crossover, but all you need to know is Dean is with Buffy, Sam is with Faith, Chuck wrote about it, and Becky's not a happy camper. So, she fights back with her very own Mary Sue self-insert fanfic. If you like Wincest, you probably won't like this, because well... it's really unconvincing. On My LJ
