We had an intimate soiree this year, but the costumes were spectacular and all the attendees definitely managed to expand their literary horizons. I'm also really impressed with the diversity of fandoms that appeared. Since the stories went up while a lot of people were otherwise occupied, here's another change to read and give love some amazing stories, even those that might otherwise offend, disturb or embarrass either the writers or the readers. Of course some, are just downright hilarious.
Brain Bleach is available on demand, but please try to go and give some love. Please read all warnings at original story locations.
One more time: If you have ever participated in Come As Your Not, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON IT, post your previous fics to the Come As You're Not Collection at A03. If you need an A03 invite code, let me know.
We had a lot of participants over the years and right now only a few are in the collection.
If you are in contact with folks who you know are NOT in contact with me these days, for whatever reasons, and would be willing to reach out, I'd really appreciate it. I'd just like to have all the fics in one place in case our good friends at LJ ever go totally tits up. Posting to the collection doesn't mean they like me, just that they once or twice participated in a challenge.
The Mourinho-Guardiola Collision by flywoman.
Fandom: Football RPF/The Big Bang Theory
Characters or Pairing: José Mourinho/Pep Guardiola, with Xavi Hernández/Lionel Messi bromance
Word Count: ~ 5000
Disclaimer: Tragically, none of these characters are mine.
Summary: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Xavi Hernández are the finalists for this year's prestigious Cruyff Prize... for the best Ph.D. thesis in particle physics. AU crossover with The Big Bang Theory. Written for karaokegal's Come As You're Not 2012 Challenge.

Dude, Where's the Costume Party? by starhawk2005

Characters or Pairing: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Castiel, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Thor, Loki.
Rating: Gen (shocking, I know!)
Word Count: 5158
Summary: Cas warns Dean and Sam that the real Loki is here. And he’s bringing an army. Cue the snark.
Notes for warnings, spoilers, loving on your Beta, etc.
Beta: Many thanks to canyr12 for helping me wrangle all these characters. Sometimes it’s like herding a bag of cats. ;)
Author’s Note: AU set sometime after the end of S7 of Supernatural, after Dean makes it home from Purgatory (and I’m ignoring early S8 canon, as Sam leaving the life and Dean stuck in Purgatory for a year don’t work for me). As for Avengers, this is all based on the movie!verse.
