And on said challenge is this prompt....now I will admit I have a thing about St Sebastian. It’s the whole image of a beautiful man shot full of arrows, seriously just type in St Sebastian and images and watch google go wild! Now I’ve had a story idea or kicking around for a while, embracing the whole artistic styling, first gay pin up anyone?
Anyhoo back to Dean and hurt/comfort and why I shouldn’t finish the fic I started bashing out today. For a start there has been a wonderful fill of the prompt, if you don’t believe me go look! And secondly I wanted to use the St Sebastian motif in a J2 serial killer fic I've been plotting forever..
You know take one famous crime author (Think Castle, only taller and with better hair) add in one tough F.B.I. agent with green eyes, add a deranged fan who is recreating a very early work by said author and stir gently. All while throwing sexual tension between author and agent onto the fire.
Now I want to write a Supernatural story with St Sebastian as the core, take one bat cave; add a hunt brought to Sam’s attention by archives of the Men Of Letters. Then throw in a cursed painting, a rich art collector with an obsession with the attractive saint, a bunch of semi nude men shot full of arrows. Add two very pretty Winchesters and the prospect of one of them ending up at the mercy of the curse. Yes in the traditional nothing but a loin cloth, and strategically placed arrows.
Add a desperate brother trying to find the other, blood loss, carried brother shivering in the arms of said sibling and simmer gently until someone tells me to stop doing horrible things to Dean.
The thing is I like both ideas and I don’t really want to let either one go, and yes I know I have a hundred other bloody fics to write. Why did someone have to mention bloody St Sebastian!
