Sam/Lucifer - An Annotated List 
4th-Mar-2010 08:49 pm
[Zelda] Master Sword

I've been making my own fiction and book lists for as long as I can remember and I've really started to enjoy it again now that I'm back in school and studying cataloguing. That said, I doubt this list will ever be as comprehensive as I would like. Nevertheless, if you love this pairing like I do, it should still provide you with a nice starting point.

This pairing can get dark, and that's fine, but there are certain things I won't read.

To be eligible for this list (as this is more my reading list than an attempt at a master list), fics must conform to the following:
  • Contain Sam/Lucifer as the focus or one of the main pairings.
  • Contain no Sam/Lucifer/others - these two only, please.
  • Contain no straight-out physical noncon, BDSM, humiliation, and the like.

A Note About Ratings and Genres...

Because different authors and archives all seem to use a different rating system and personal opinion can differ enormously, I'm going to spell out what the ratings - for this list, anyway - really mean. It's still subjective, but at least this way you can find the sort of fic you're looking for a little more easily.


G - suitable for your four year-old cousin. The bare bones of a story with the often dark motivations stripped away. "Rated E for Everyone" kind of thing.
PG - mild language, violence.
PG-13 - dark themes, strong violence/language, and/or light romance (sexual allusions permitted).
R - sexual situations, graphic violence, and/or disturbing subject matter.
NC-17 - explicit sexual situations.

Of course, any higher rating can, and often does, include elements of the ratings below it.


For the most part, I've replaced this section with any warnings, other pairings, or other notable things about the fic instead of true genres.

Also, PWP has gotten a bad reputation. I don't mean it disparagingly at all, just as an indicator that the primary subject of the fic is, well, the porn part. Many of these have excellent characterisations.

By all means, please rec me some new or missed fanfiction.

Thank you so much! I love this pairing and there apparently are a lot of fics I missed.
7th-Mar-2010 10:17 pm (UTC)
It's too lovely a dynamic to leave alone. I had to find them all. :)
7th-Mar-2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
Wow. This is fantastic!

Thank you so much for putting this together!

I'm glad you think so! I'm happy to bring these all together for us all.
7th-Mar-2010 11:33 pm (UTC)
I have the worst weakness for Samifer (yes, I've given it a name). I'm collecting OTPs in this fandom. *headdesk*

Anyways, I actually have a series (called Apples & Oranges) that I've started which is based on entangled_now's The Nature of Apples (I actually gave the prompt for that fic, and she delivered so much awesome, it's kind of taken over my brain :D). It's currently located at my journal, which is f-locked, but I'm actually going to be starting up a fic comm/journal later today and I can give you the links there. It's both Sam/Lucifer and Dean/Castiel, just as a heads up. :)
8th-Mar-2010 12:08 am (UTC)
I would love that. Not going to lie, that is one of my very favourite characterisations of these two - more of it can only be a good thing.
8th-Mar-2010 01:54 am (UTC)
Her Samifer is the good shit. Not even kidding. :)

I only hope my homage does her characterizations justice. I've got two parts up so far, and I have no idea how much further it's going to go. We'll see. \o/
8th-Mar-2010 09:41 am (UTC)
Ok ... the comm is up and running ... and here are the fics (they are a series, so they are in that order for a reason)! \o/

8th-Mar-2010 12:24 am (UTC)
I'm thrilled you liked my fics enough to include them, however silver_scrawls is my fic journal, so could you change the author's name?
8th-Mar-2010 12:34 am (UTC)
Done and done. Thanks for the correction.

2nd-May-2015 11:19 am (UTC) - fic MIA
Thank You so much for this!

However, "Dusting Down the Stars" appears to be MIA due to deleted/purged account.
And doesn't seem to be around on AO3 either, but perhaps elsewhere? :(

When trying archive.org, there are two captures, but either they are off or the adult content notice has ruined things. 'cause that's all one gets when trying it here with a slightly different username/url, that was referenced here.
