8 Days Wincest Challenge

The rest is wincest
It seems I have a little something else for this challenge...

A little story of my rather embarrassing (but totally innocent) first encounter with Wincest.

The first person I friended on LJ was ignipes. I remember discovering this thing called wincest and being a little shocked. Yes shocked I tells ya! So I sent ignipes a PM asking why people are so disrespectful of these characters. I couldn't understand how anyone could have these brothers actually, well, having sex..

She didn't answer me (I'm not surprised as I probably sounded like a troll). I eventually decided to give one story a go to see what it was all about. It was one of her stories (and I thought I had a link but I don't unfortunately) and it had Sam and Dean standing under a street light and it exploding when they kissed. It was a gentle introduction to wincest. I remember it clearly because I loved it and it opened my eyes to how this could actually work. How writers could be respectful AND create beautiful, powerful stories that are inspired by canon.

So there you are. I still feel rather embarrassed by that PM, but I was a wee innocent thing back then. ;)

I too was shocked at first... I resisted it for quite a while but it got me in the end! As far as one of my early SPN buddies is concerned - I fell from grace.

I went from scratching my head, to being mildly curious, to reading the fics where they mostly just kiss to...full on hardcore sex! I keep saying fandom has corrupted me...for which I am forever grateful...;)

(then I resisted RPF for ages. The I realised it was mostly original fiction using their names and now I love it!)

Sometimes I'm amazed at how many wonderful, perfectly sane people there are in this fandom... if you think about it really... gay incest porn. Who would have thought? I think it's a combination of the talent of fandom's writers and the willingness of the show and actors to, at some level at least, encourage it. But what really keeps me coming back is just what you said- powerful, beautiful stories.

SO many amazing, talented people in this fandom. And if someone asked me 10 years ago if I would be consuming gay incest porn today I would have thought them to be a little nuts....

I agree that it's the fantastic writing and the affection that the writers obviously feel towards the characters that keeps me coming back. PWP is nice, but that's not why I read Sam/Dean, it's the unconditional love that exists between them -- alongside the hot sex.

(TBH, if someone had said "Come read this gay incest porn," I no doubt would've run off screaming and never come back. And that would have been a SHAME.) XDDDD

Yeah - the characters give us so much to work with. The fact that the unconditional, sacrificial, co-dependent love actually exists in canon makes the jump to incest so easy. I would never have imagined possible until I discovered what fans can actually do...;)

I had the same slow, reluctant progression. And here I still am. Luckily :)

Oh yeah. I feel incredibly lucky that I'm still here and that I found it (and loved it!) in the first place. :)
