So I've just finished what has to be one of the best fics I've ever read. In case any of you haven't (yet) read it, go. Forget food, sleep, work and other silly distractions.
Title: The Fetters of Fenrir
Pairings: Sam/Dean, Dean/Cassie in prequels
Warnings: Violence, dub-con, sex, incest, character death
Word Count: c. 200,000
Summary: Fetters is a novel-length spin-off of the Beserker series of short stories, by leonidasden, and won't make a lot of sense unless you've read them first (LINK). Dean is trapped, in more ways than one, and Sam is about to find out just how far he'll go to save his brother. What elevates this beyond the million or so other 'brother in peril' stories is a rich mythology, an unpredictable, gripping plot that may just take years off your life, and writing so good you'll forget there was a world outside your computer screen. Every single character is spot-on, even when they only get a few paragraphs, and the author parks you right in their heads for the whole crazy rollercoaster ride. You won't always be happy to be there.
I don't have the words to do it justice. All I can say is, I've been reading fanfic for well over half my life, and this one is one of the best I've ever read. Go. And read.
