fic, SPN: the two faces of vengeance (Dean/Castiel), NC17, for spn_j2_bigbang  
Fic title: the two faces of vengeance
Author name: janie_tangerine
Artist name: hrymfaxe
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: NC17
Word count: 27000 ca
Warnings: violence, violence and then some violence, character death for a premise and happening throughout the fic, mention of a rape happened before the story starts but not graphic, torture (the act itself is not described in a graphic way, but the scene stops just before it), permanent disfugurement (consequences of previous warning), language (that might possibly be historically inaccurate, but otherwise it wouldn't make the point). Also, every possible spaghetti western trope that you can come up with.
Summary: western AU. Dean Winchester is a bounty hunter, set to catch a group of killers in order to get the money and retire from the business. Castiel is another bounty hunter aiming for the rich businessman who pays that same group of killers to do his dirty work, but for personal reasons. They decide to work together. It doesn't go as smoothly as it could.

Momentarily extra A/N: LJ hasn't been able to post part IV properly and whenever I tried to edit it I got server errors, so it's currently hosted on my Dreamwidth until LJ makes me edit any post longer than 1000 words. Links from both the masterlist and part III bring there and then it links back here though, so there should be no problem in getting there.

Wow, I got to part IV and it won't load past half the screen no matter how many times I try. I am so sick of this bs, you wrote an awesome fic and I want to know the ending. :< Guess I'll check back later. Kudos on posting!

Believe me it's not my fault :((( I'm trying to make some sense out of it, but when I posted it LJ was giving me server errors, then I managed and I figured it was okay, then I realized that IV doesn't work but the entire text is there if I click edit entry. :((( I'll give you a shout out when I solved it. Sorry for that but I have no freaking clue what's up with LJ.

Oh, I know it's not your fault! I feel bad for all the BB'rs and BF fillers who got so screwed over. It sucks out loud. I think the general consensus was that it was the Russian gvt fucking with LJ again by way of ddos attacks. I really love your fic, and can't wait till LJ stops being so screwy. ♥

Thanks for the patience. ♥ it's just that after getting server errors all day and then finally managing to post it finding that out didn't make anything to brighten my mood. ;) anyway I put IV on my dreamwidth account as stated in the comment after this one, you can get part IV there - it's linked on the masterpost. ;) and yeah, seriously, the Russian govt. can just go screw itself. I'm not gonna blame LJ over that, frustrating as it gets.

heads up: I put IV on my Dreamwidth account - the link is in this post. It's not exactly ideal but the masterpost is the only entry LJ lets me edit and I figured it was better than nothing.

Just finished reading this - loved it! Now I think both JA and MC should be in more westerns :)

Thanks so much, I'm so glad that you liked it! :D and ha, believe me when I'd say I'd die happily if I saw them starring in westerns. Oh yes. *has lovely mental images*

Just finished the PDF in one go,and DAMN, that was good!

I loved the way you wrote the sexual tension between Dean and Castiel, how it was never something pronounced, but still so very there. I also loved how you didn't shy away from Alistair really messing Dean up, even if it broke my heart.

Definitively meming this!

Ee, thank you! :D

I'm so glad to hear it worked for you, and that the characterizations/building up did. I thought that having the UST very evident wouldn't have been much realistic considering the setting, so it's great to know you thought it was fitting. Also I did debate about how far to go with Dean but I figured that the way I went was the more realistic too. Though I still feel somewhat bad.. ;) thanks so much again!
