Two Self Recs: Supernatural & Happy Endings

(Okay, took me forever, but I think I've decided. This was hard - hard to pick any at all, and then I managed to pick 4, and had to narrow it to two. XD)

Fandom Category: Happy Endings
Pairing: Penny Hartz/Dave Rose
Fic Title: Blame It On The Red
Author: red_b_rackham

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Word Count/WIP?: 2388 (complete/oneshot)
Recced By: red_b_rackham

Why This Must Be Read: This one came out of nowhere for me - I found Happy Endings, started binge-watching it, and suddenly a oneshot came out (with a half-finished half-sequel and plans for a third one waiting patiently on my harddrive). I loved writing Penny, and I loved the sort of "real talk" style this came out in, with Penny's internal dialogue and her struggle to realize (or work hard not to realize) she likes Dave. And it was just fun to do the ol' stuck-in-a-change-room-and-I-need-your-help trope. (Also if you haven't seen Happy Endings, you should, because it's fantastic.)


Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Bela Talbot
Fic Title: Now And Then There's A Fool Such As I
Author: red_b_rackham
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1224259/chapters/2585869
Rating/Warning(s): T  (fandom typical violence, moderate language)
Word Count/WIP?:10,098 (complete)

Why This Must Be Read: I have a minor obsession with the messy dynamic between Dean and Bela, and I think with this fic I captured it (even better than this fic's precursor, Trust Issues). More than a couple lines I wrote make me laugh still, and it's basically eveything I would want to read in a Dean/Bela fic. I kind of overall love the plot/idea of it, and how it turned out in the end - I think fondly about this fic a lot, which I don't often do. I had to share it for this challenge!

(Beautiful Mods: could I get tags for Happy Endings, and Penny Hartz/Dave Rose? Thanks!!)
