Rabbit Hole - Master Post

Artwork that shows Sam Beckett leaping into Dean Winchester's life.


Title: Rabbit Hole
Author: elementalv
Crossover: Quantum Leap/Supernatural
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 15,679
Characters: Sam Beckett, Sam Winchester, Bobby Singer, Castiel, (Dean Winchester)
Spoilers: This takes place after Quantum Leap ended and during the second half of Season 6 for Supernatural. There aren't many spoilers for SPN, but there may be a few.
Notes: Anyone who has watched Quantum Leap will recognize some of the text that appears in this story. Also, thanks to malnpudl, who kept going with the beta, even when I added another 5,000 words to it after I sent it off the first time.
Summary: Sam Beckett has been leaping through time for longer than even he knows, but he’s pretty sure he’s never leapt into a life quite like this one.

Posted! Yayz! \o/

Question: Are you not specifying pairing for a reason? You're likely to lose a lot of readers over that in this fandom. Just a thought.

I debated that for a while, but ultimately decided against it, partly because that statement ends up revealing more about the story than I want it to and partly because, in the end, this story is more about Sam Beckett than it is about a pairing.

So, to answer your question, this is a gen Quantum Leap story more than it is a slash SPN story, and I didn't want to mislead my readers. If it means I don't get readers or comments, too bad for me, eh?

Meh. A lack of comments will be disappointing, considering how much effort you and I both put into this, but I'm happy with the story I told, and that's what's more important to me.

I hear you. Makes sense.

It's just the whole incest thing that made me ask in the first place. Many of us avoid all SPN fic unless it's clearly incest-free.

Huh. I'm not really a Wincest writer, so that interpretation didn't even occur to me. I'll remove the reference to pre-slash.

Don't know if this is any help, but I read this on the back of the QL side of things (haven't go around to watching SN yet) and the story to Sam B has moved me to tears. Thank you!

Good grief -- I thought I already responded to you -- sorry about the delay.

And to answer your comment, You read it on the correct end of things. It really is more of a Quantum Leap story than anything else. Also, I don't quite know whether to cheer or apologize over the tears. So, sorryay?

Ohmygoohmygodohmygodohmygod! I am super excited about this if you couldn't tell :D (I actually haven't had a chance to read it yet but I'm uber-excited about the idea so I figured I would comment both now and after!) I love QL and Sam Beckett is one of my fav. characters ever and my fav. part is that it can be crossovered with any show and still be canon :D Off to read now... brb...
