How do they do so much awesome art!

Also, I tried this fic but only made it two paragraphs. I have a cold and do not have the inclination to read stilted fic. It might get better, but I am not sticking around to see.

IT'S NOT A BUNDLE OF NERVES!!!

Okay, there might very well be other things to more constructively critique about this fic, but, seriously--it's a gland.

How sad is it that i know exactly what you're talking about without having read the story.

Amazing artist. Same person did this BB's Precious and the J2 BB's D/C HS AU by scaramouche. Can't win them all, but they did a great job each time out.

As for the fic...retcon city. Start off with the "everyone woke up gay" premise and move on from there. I got the impression that Show had done stuff author didn't like, so author was going to call these things out and overwrite them. Crowley not GO Crowley? Zap! Gabriel dead? Zap! Swords needs to kill more than angels? Zap! Issues with hosts? Zap! General angel death issues? Poof! Our Crowley too likable? Begone! Not enough exclamation points? Double zap!!!!!

I never made it to the fic itself. All I needed to see was "the Winchester's" in the summary and I knew that fic and I weren't made for each other. My search for a decent SPN/GO crossover continues.

GO/SPN crossovers are something that I particularly like, enough that I decided to give this one a try despite the reaction here on meme. I couldn't even make it through the second chapter.

Integrating the two canons takes a deft hand, since they're not actually all that compatible; this story just artlessly sweeps away most of the SPN-specific elements. The rejection of what Dean, Sam and Castiel know about angels and demons comes from the mouth of GO Crowley, a demon (well, fallen angel, as the story is at great pains to establish, but my point is, not a trustworthy figure from their POV) and they just accept it.

Add in Aziraphale consistently being called "Zira" and the hard-coded font and I was done. Even if you think this might be the kind of bad fic you can tolerate for favorite tropes, like I did, I would avoid this fic.
