Our Guest – PallasPerilous

Pallas’ fics we mention in this episode:
- Boneless Wings (4333 words, M) – For those of you perving along at home, Dean could absolutely provide a list of the hundred or so ways that having a boyfriend with giant fucking actual wings is super hot and/or awesome. This is not that list.
- Fifty Ways to Lose Your Lover (1106 words, T) – Castiel’s love confession scene is proving difficult to nail down. SURELY the characters will settle down in the next draft. SURELY.
- Funny Bone (4933 words, M) – Now a podfic by NerdyNerdenstein as well! – It wasn’t even a particularly creepy skeleton; it was in kind of a “just chillin’” pose on the floor. It was the skeleton’s comment about Dean’s ass that really livened things up.

Hey MalMuses and EllenofOz:
Thanks so much for your podcast – enjoy it immensely. A quick suggestion: If you’re planning on doing an episode on Angst, if you haven’t already found it, I’d like to suggest a look at “How a Righteous Man Raises a Rose.” https://archiveofourown.org/works/5518754 A real tearjerker.
Thanks Diane! I’ll add it to the list 😊
I totally agree with Diane. It’s a beautiful story. How a Righteous Man…is a must-save in my SPN folder.
