Congratulations to all the wonderful authors and artists who participated in this year's DCBB!

Stay tuned for a master posting of all of the stories and artwork released during the 2015 challenge period. If you have any feedback you'd like to leave with suggestions for next year's challenge please do so constructively as a response to this post! We look forward to incoming ideas** and will do our best to respond to them!

(**Please bear in mind that the DCBB is and will continue to be a Livejournal-based challenge. We've adapted with the growing shift of fandom towards other websites by allowing artists and authors to post on AO3, Tumblr, etc, but find that Livejournal continues to be the most conducive platform for actively running the challenge as it currently exists.)

Also a huge, HUGE thanks to made-of-sun-flowers for stepping up to the plate and doing our beta work for us when our other beta got sick and was unable. You really saved our butts. Of course, also big, big, big thanks to the mods here at deancasbigbang for giving us an extension when we were unable to make our posting date! We really appreciate it. The whole world was fighting us on this fic, it seems, but somehow we did manage to get it done.

Title: Ex Nihilo
Author: destielruinedme
Artist: xlostloonax
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural Alternate Universe
Pairing(s): Dean/Castiel
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 50k
Warnings: depictions of mental illness (ptsd), discussions of trauma from war, Cas smokes, Cas-centric, a long road of angst, but there's fluff at the end

Summary: Castiel is a disillusioned war veteran who thought he was too broken to ever have anything resembling a normal life, and has settled himself with the bare minimum. His life changes when he finds himself with custody of his young niece after his twin brother and his wife are killed. To prevent Claire from being taken away and sent to live in foster care or with distant relatives, Castiel attempts to get his life together enough to raise her. But problems arise when his ability to take proper care of Claire comes into question. He finds help in the form of a quirky social worker and his brother—a lawyer—who help him fight to keep full custody of his niece. And maybe, along the way, these broken people can create a new family together.

Title: Held in Your Tender Hands
Author: almaasi | AO3 | tumblr
Artist: chargetransfer | tumblr
Fandom/Genre: Human AU, Fluff, Smut, Romance
Pairing(s): Dean/Castiel
Word count: 59,800 words
Rating: NC-17

Summary: Human AU. Castiel is Dean’s new masseur. Their relationship is meant to be all business, but somehow their first session ends with a cuddle, and their second session leads Castiel to confess he enjoys watching Dean nap a little too much. Their third... well, their third session is especially intimate. After more than a year apart, Dean and Castiel meet on a train, having been invited to the same Independence Day gathering. Just like before, Castiel goes everywhere with his pet cat. But outside of work, he dresses and acts very differently to the polo-shirted smooth-talker of the massage room. Dean can only guess at how this snarky, tattooed, gender-bending sweetheart can render him such a wreck, all over again.

Warnings: Somnophilia/Castiel’s sleep fetish (fully consensual); grey-asexual Cas, tattooed punk!Cas (bonus: Cas rocking some androgynous genderfuckery), Dean in panties, explicit sex with bottom!Dean, fingering using massage oil as lube; past Dean/people of various genders; brief mentions of past suicidal feelings, self-tattooing, and John Winchester’s abusive parenting. Also contains Castiel’s pet disabled/deaf/declawed cat, a somewhat brutal paintball battle in Bobby’s scrapyard, swearing, fireworks... and British spelling.

Summary: { TFW Nutcracker AU with Destiel }
Now Christmas is loved in the Winchester house
But something is stirring, and it isn't a mouse
Descriptions aren't my strong suit, so I won't keep you on the fence;
I'll tell you a tale of magic, adventure, and suspense
There's victory, battle, and traveling far
Occasionally Dean drives around in his car
So, read on, if you will, and believe what you may
Of the week leading up to their Christmas day.
