Honestly, I have no idea either. Any of the followers have any help for our lovely friend?
The only one I can think of off the top of my head (I have hiatus brain) is Hard Road by Aleisha Potter, but I’ll start looking for some additional ones for you!
Alright, so this question is from an embarrassingly long time ago, but I’m just now trying to get through the backlog that’s built up over the hiatus (still on hiatus, maybe).
Yes. I did read Twist and Shout. Once.
It starts with headaches, and it ends in a clusterfuck. So, business as usual, Apocalypse-wise.
An AU-canon divergent Season 5 re-telling slash mild Good Omens crossover. The fact that I was able to write that sentence tickles me in a way that is probably illegal in some parts of the world. The writing style in this is brilliant - a little bit stream of consciousness, a whole lot of clever freeform, and just enough of the Pratchett/Gaiman-esque prose to keep you smiling, even through the heavy parts. The story itself is brilliant - it’s obviously enough of an AU that it doesn’t feel like it could be an episode, but that’s okay, because what happens instead is pretty fantastic (the final battle sequence had me on the edge of my seat, enthralled). And the characters, especially the Dean and Michael dynamics, are well-written, especially considering the ensemble cast being worked with. Overall, a great read. If you’re into AUs, vague crossovers, or Michael as a main character, you need this fic in your life.
Genre: Adventure, Humour, Romance
Warnings: AU(ish), crossover

Crossovers, as always, are a matter of opinion - maybe you love Supernatural but haaaate the ‘verse it crosses with. That being said, my personal favourites are as follows:
Dies Irae, or Something: An AU-canon divergent Season 5 re-telling slash mild Good Omens crossover. If that alone doesn’t have you scrambling to read it, well… I hate to be the one to tell you this, good reader, but you got more problems than even the Winchester family on a bad day. ;) You can read it here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/245097/chapters/377968
Apocalypse, Please: An Avengers/Supernatural crossover - I know what you’re thinking, because I was right there with you. But give it a chance, because it’s actually delightful (it’s actually one of my faves, I’ve had it bookmarked on AO3 forever and I sing its praises whenever I can).

If I find anymore good ones, I’ll be sure to post them for you to find, lovely Anonny :)
“Hey Sammy? You didn’t happen to start an apocalypse while I was in Purgatory, did you?”
Or: After the disappearance of the One, pagan gods are fighting over who gets the world. Alliances are forged and broken, Zeus and Enlil form a bromance, Odin teams up with Isis, Loki probably has an evil plan, Artemis ponders second-wave feminism, Crowley is amused, the angels are not, Inanna has opinions, Don is a Carver Edland fan.
And Dean and Cas aren’t fooling anybody.
Well, what better way to come out of a hiatus than with an exceptionally-written, truly amazing, intelligent and hilarious novel-length canon divergence of Season 8? (Spoiler: there is no better way.) This fic is a true work of art: the research alone that must have gone into writing it is mind-boggling, the characterisation is spot-on, the plot is epic on a scale that most only dream of, and, despite the overall angst of the story, the sarcastic narration and the tender moments between the (vast and wonderfully developed) cast of characters brought me to laughter and happy tears on more than one occasion. If you’ve got a few free hours, definitely check this one out - the greatest tragedy of the story is that it seems to be barely discovered yet, and that ends now.
Genre: Adventure, Angst, Romance
Warnings: Mature, explicit sexual content
