So, since I mostly write fic, this is where you can find it. I usually use the name TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel to publish fic.

AO3.   Most of my fic from the past few years (and all my current fic) is here. 

Livejournal.   There's a few Supernatural fics here I haven't also posted to AO3 yet, which are in the masterlist, and some miscellaneous fics that appears from time to time, although you have to actually look for those. You're better off looking at my AO3 account for fic, though.

Fandoms I have written (including crossovers):

Marvel Cinematic Universe (The Avengers, Thor, Captain America, etc)

Doctor Who



Harry Potter

The Wicked + The Divine

X-Men: First Class

Diana Wynne Jones

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The Secret World of Alex Mack

Good Omens

For a full list, check out my AO3 account.

Or, good fics I've found where Dean turns out to actually be Fallen!Michael, or variations thereupon. Last updated 20 May 2016.

[moved from my defunct LJ account] A number of these are hosted on LJ, so I don't know if they'll be around much longer,

The Sky verse.  I don't think I can even begin to summarize this one. Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel. Hosted on

The Dies Irae series. In this, Dean isn't exactly Michael, no... but Michael's closer than anyone knew. Hosted on livejournal.

The Long Unexpected End. It's the last battle, entirely unexpected, and then... well, Michael and Sammael knew what they were doing, apparently. Which is good, because no one else knew what was going on. Hosted on

And Many Happy Returns of the Day. Beware archangels bearing birthday gifts. This has a sequel, Unwrapping the Gift, which is pretty damn funny by the end. With the apocalypse drawing closer, Mikey might want to get his angelic ass into gear. Both are hosted on

The First Born. I'm not even going to attempt to summarise this one. It's good, though, if a little inscrutable. Although, you'll need to go to each chapter from the link here, as the 'next chapter' links didn't work when I tried them. Hosted on

Stare Decisis. Uriel and Castiel talk about Sam, and Dean, and their Father's Plan. Hosted on livejournal.

Awake, Arise, Or Be forever Fallen. Kinda similar to Star Decisis. Lucifer and Michael. Sam and Dean. They don't remember who they really are.

Shine. Dean is gone, vanished in a flash of light. Castiel is back, with a handprint to match Dean's and a whispered name on his lips: Michael. And Sam faces losing his brother to an archangel who fell three decades ago… Kinda angsty. Hosted on

66 Seals of Doom On The Wall. When Castiel gives Dean 'a weapon to help him in his task,' Dean begins to see that things are more complicated than he thought. Michael is kind of Dean, but also not. Hosted on livejournal.

Fire of Heaven. Dean/Castiel. Five years after her run-in with Azazel, Mary Winchester makes another deal. Hosted on livejournal.

Full Circle. Sam wanted to grab a machete and cut his own head off to stop the headaches. There would be no point in asking Dean to do it he would only say, "No." The selfish bastard. Hosted on

It's Gonna Be A Long Walk Home.  Dean has always gravitated toward Sam, but neither one of them has ever particularly believed in destiny. Now a demon is after them, their world is falling apart, and the voices in Dean's head might just drive him insane. One thing the boys are sure of: they can't afford to lose each other. Sam/Dean, which I don't like, but some people do. Hosted on dreamwidth.

The Halo verse. This is a good, interesting series, although still in progress. Hosted on
Your halo's slippin' down. Suddenly, he wasn't just Dean anymore.
With heaven's help. After Castiel and Dean leave Raphael, Dean returns.
Crowns and thrones. Dean and Sam recieve information on something that Dean is looking for. WIP - abandoned?.

I Got Soul but I'm Not a Soldier. By the same author as the Sky series. Castiel is on the road (saving people, helping things) when he meets Dean and realizes that his soul is different – and not just because he’s the pastor’s son. Absolutely brilliant. Dean/Castiel. Hosted on dreamwidth.

Et In Terra Pax. The end is near. With God missing, most angels being bastards, and the devil closing in on his brother, Dean has to act quickly. Fortunately, Castiel has an idea that might actually give him a chance against the devil. This is one of my favourites, I think. Hosted on

With These Broken Wings (Take Flight). The first indication that he is not alone comes when something wraps him in warmth and love. It is the vaguest sort of familiarity. Dean/Gabriel, Gabriel/Michael. Not a pairing I've encountered before in the Dean!Michael trope, but works well. Hosted on LJ.

The Throne. Dean wakes up with a whole new set of memories as Michael the Archangel. When the heck did he say yes? He keeps it a secret. Eventually, Cas finds out. Hosted on LJ.

Together We Stand Divided We Fall. Dean's fighting his destiny of becoming Michael's Vessel with everything he's got, but Dean has a secret - one he doesn't even know about - that's about to change the war completely. Michael loves his brother too; maybe they're more alike than Dean - or anybody - thinks. I have to say, this one is shaping up to be an awesome fic! It's a work in progress, but I'm really enjoying it. It's Team Free Will + Gabriel fic, by the way. Hosted on Story has been removed.

Of Bastard Saints. Dean is Michael and Sam is Gabriel, but it only gets a mention in the last chapter. Still, thought I'd post it here anyway. Hosted on LJ.

A Side You Never Knew. Dean is de-aged and finds a lot of things that he had once hid from those around him starting to be revealed. This is a little confusing at first, maybe, and the flow is sometimes a little uneven, but it gets better as it goes on. Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel. With bonus Adam! WIP. Has been removed.

Not In His Shape Celestial. Gabriel works out that Dean is Michael. He has to decide what to do next. This one is actually by me, but people seem to like it, judging by the number of comments. It's complete, but there will be sequels. Hosted on LJ Now hosted on AO3, since that's where the rest of the 'verse is being posted.

Untitled Comment Fic. Dean isn't Michael's vessel, he's Michael. Everyone's favourite Trickster discovers this during Changing Channels. Hosted on LJ.

Account Me Sam. Supernatural/Paradise Lost. Gabriel has accumulated a lot of secrets over the years. He shares some with Castiel. It's written as a monologue, which is an interesting approach. Hosted on LJ.

Reaching As I Fall. Dean/Castiel. Service to God was the meaning of existence; service to Michael is nothing but slavery.” Castiel is part of an underground network helping angels fall, in resistance to heaven. At the same time that a fallen angel by the name of Dean Winchester turns up, some of those in the network are murdered by Michael’s forces – there’s a spy. What does Dean have to do with it? Who is Dean? And why are they hunting him so fiercely? Kinda angsty, but... ends okay. Hosted on LJ.

How Becky Totally saved the World Without Becoming a Mary Sue or: PLEASE R&R OR I'LL NEVER WRITE ANOTHER CHAPTER. Becky/Chuck. The upside of living with a prophet was the fanfic. And the forewarning of the apocalypse. But, mostly the fic. Pure, unadulterated, hilarious crack. Dean doesn't have much of a role, but still. Awesome. Hosted on AO3.

I'm yours 'till they come. During a hunt, Dean lost consciousness near Pontiac. Castiel, a skittish townie librarian, saves him and he offers Dean his house and his hospitality. For weeks they share some kind of blissful domesticity, until Castiel is being made the target of weird angels' "attacks". Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of their problems. Hosted on LJ.

The Sammy and Michael Show.  A tale of two brothers on the road in which Sam is Sam, Dean is Michael, it's 2008, and Lucifer is still in the Pit. This is by Lucillia, and is written in their usual light, humorous style. Hosted on

Team WHAT?! Sam and Dean are just Vessels, right? Right? This fic is also by Lucillia, and it's absolutely hilarious. Dean and Sam are not, in fact, Vessels, but Michael and Lucifer themselves... but neither plans to admit their real identity for fear of upsetting their current comfortable family dynamic. Meanwhile, no one else has a clue. At first, anyway. Hosted on Complete. (Also has a Sam focused side story, Pit Stop in Cambria).

with you and I defying gravity, they'll never bring us down. A short ficlet, worth reading. Hosted on LJ.

Some Dance to Remember, Some Dance to Forget. Short, but interesting, Complete. Hosted on

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Sequel to 'The Devil's in the Details.' When Sam opened Lucifer’s Cage, the only thing he found inside was Lucifer’s grace – his grace. With the return of his grace, Sam remembered his past – his war against the Host, his Fall, and his plans to bring about the End. The thing is…he doesn’t want the Apocalypse anymore. He likes things the way they are, and tries everything to keep his identity a secret- especially from Dean. Of course, the four Horsemen, Hell and Heaven have other ideas. Hosted on AO3.

Retrospect. They live, they love, they lose, they learn. But still, he is Michael, he is Dean. And they are one. Gen, hosted on LJ.

there, behind the parapets of stone. Coda to 6.06, Castiel knows exactly when the righteous man breaks for the second time. Gen. Hosted on AO3.

Unlikely Places. So the cage opens and Sam discovers that he is actually Lucifer. Now he has to dodge the other angels, the demons, try not to destroy the world and somehow work out how he's going to explain this all to Dean. Turns out it might be easier that he thinks. AU Season 5. Gen. Hosted on

I Hear The Voices When I'm Dreaming. After spending thirteen years locked up in a psychiatric hospital for hearing voices, Dean is broken out by a mysterious man in a trench-coat who claims to be an angel. According to Castiel, Dean is Heaven's only chance at saving the Earth from the impending apocalypse - an apocalypse that Dean's younger brother, Sam, is caught right in the middle of. But is everything really as it seems? Dean/Castiel preslash/friendship. Hosted on AO3.

Michael!Dean, Lucifer!Sam Verse. Michael takes the opportunity in the past to have a little chat with the Winchesters, and he has no interest in the apocalypse. Gabriel knows exactly how to stop it. Two fics in this series. Hosted on AO3.

 Dear Yuletide Author,

First of all, I want to thank you for agreeing to write a story for me. I love all these fandoms, and would be happy to receive a story for any of them.

 Since we probably don’t know each other, here are some notes which might be helpful. If you already have a story idea in mind, then go for it, but these notes might be useful if you need some ideas.

First of all, I’ll share some of my general likes and dislikes. Some of my likes include: banter, humour, and hopeful endings. Generally speaking, I don’t like darkfic (although I’m willing to make an exception for Ragnarok-centred futurefic for Eight Days of Luke). I also don’t like reading fics where sex is the point of the story, although if a sex-scene is important for plot reasons or blends well with the rest of the story, I don’t mind so much. Generally, I just don’t like reading explicit sex scenes, and prefer that things don't go past kissing.

Here are some specific notes about the fandoms (and characters) I’ve chosen:

The Wicked + The Divine (Lucifer, Laura): 

 I freaking love Luci, okay. She is awesome. I’m interested in seeing Luci and Laura interactions, whether they’re femslash or gen. While I’d happily see other characters as well, if you want (it’s up to you) I absolutely want to see Luci and Laura. I love Luci’s sheer magnificence, her charisma, her tendency to monologue and the sheer force of her personality. In Laura’s case, I appreciate her fascination with Luci and the other pop idols/gods. I like the way that although some of her decisions can be seen as stupid or short-sighted, she has the drive to go for what she wants. Additionally, I like the fact that her actions and attitude ring true for a seventeen year old girl who wants to escape the monotony for something better. Also, I enjoy the musical references.


Archer’s Goon (Howard Sykes, Awful Sykes):

I love Howard and Awful (also Erskine, Hathaway, and Torquil). Their brother/sister dynamic is amusing. Things I like in this fandom include: a)  Howard wanting to make sure that he and Awful don’t grow up to be like Shine, Archer and the others;  b) futurefic with Howard and Awful grown-up (or Awful as a terrible teenager). But I’m happy with anything really, as long as it has Howard and Awful in it.


Eight Days of Luke (Luke, David Allard):

Do not want to see slash of Luke and David. Generally I don’t mind slash, but I just don’t ship those two. Basically anything else goes. This fandom is also the one fandom where I don’t mind seeing Ragnarok-centred darkfic, if you want to go there, although I’m just as pleased to see happy fic. It's up to you.


I hope this letter helps. Good luck!

Your recipient, TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel (on AO3)

Suddenly and violently and all over the place: An Introduction to the Nightside

Since the Nightside series by Simon R Green is a fairly small fandom, and I've recently written several crossovers in this fandom, I've decided to write a brief introduction for those unfamiliar with the series.

Before I do, it's worth noting that the series'  Wikipedia page is rather useful, the TV Tropes page less so, but still worth a quick look.

What is the Nightside, and who is John Taylor?

The first Nightside novel starts off as a kind of supernatural pastiche of the private eye pulp fiction genre, opening with PI John Taylor, apparently normal bloke, being asked to return to the nightmarish world he left behind - the Nightside - for the sake of a case. The Nightside is, we learn throughout the series, a place of unspeakable horrors and terrible wonders, where everything is available for the right price and it's always three o'clock in the morning. Monsters and myths alike walk the Nightside, from eldritch abominations to aliens to people from other time periods or realities. Magic and mad science and amorality rule here, although there are some exceptions. The point is, deep in the hidden heart of London is another realm which no sane person would venture into. This is where John Taylor grew up, and very much where he belongs.

John doesn't actually have much talent as an old-fashioned private eye; he himself says he wouldn't know a clue if he fell over it. What he does have, however, is his 'gift': a supernatural ability to see things out of the normal range of human sight and use this to find things. Finding things sounds like an innocuous talent, until you discover that John can use his gift to interact with the things he finds - so, he can empty bullets from guns, rip the fillings from teeth, trigger the weak point in spells, etcetera. The price of this gift is that when overused, John develops headaches and, if he's gone way too far, occasionally bleeds from the eyes and ears.

At the beginning of the series, John Taylor is in London Proper hiding from a set of Nightside horrors that have stalked him since he was a child, and the big mysteries of the first few books are a) who sent these creatures and why, and b) the true identity of John's long-missing mother, who left when he was a small child. These questions are answered partway through the series (and can be found on the Wikipedia page, although there are brief spoilers there).

John is smart-mouthed and attracts trouble and bucks authority, and acknowledges that he's one of the Nightside's more infamous denizens (mostly later in the books, when he takes a Level in Badassery) but he also has his own moral code, and he hates to see innocents hurt. In his own way, he also believes fervently in the necessity and potential of the Nightside.

So, why read the Nightside series?

For a start, it's funny. While it rapidly becomes a lot more than just a supernatural parody of the detective genre, the series never loses sight of that sense of humour, and never quite stops poking fun. It references pop culture in entertaining ways: for example, a common visitor to the Nightside is the Travelling Doctor (a nod to Doctor Who) and at one point John notes that no one with sense ever tries to track down the Maltese Falcon because it never ends well. Spotting these references is a lot of fun. The series also unabashedly riffs off established tropes in a knowing, nudge-wink way that makes them amusing instead of tiresome. And if you want a badass hero who always comes out on top despite the odds, who outsmarts his enemies and kicks their arses with a flash of smart-alecky wit  -  well, John Taylor is perfect. 

The characters:

Aprt from John Taylor, there's a number of re-occurring memorable characters who play a recurring role. The more important ones are discussed on the Wikipedia page, so I won't discuss them here.

Other resources:

Simon R Green's website has a list of all the books, as well as a short blurb about each one. Fanfiction can be found either on AO3, or at the LJ community, where different types of Nightside fanworks can be posted. You can also find artwork by searching 'Nightside' or 'John Taylor' on Deviantart.
