Slow Romance Sam/Dean  
I came across Fumbling in the Dark and read it surprised to find it changed my mind on the Sam/Dean pairing I had vehemently opposed before.

So, I'm tentatively reaching out to ask if anyone has any good Sam/Dean fics that are more of a slow romance- or that are not just smut, as I'm willing to give it a try. 

Anything you think might be a good introduction to this pairing. My OTP is already claimed but Fumbling in the Dark made me wonder if I was missing out on some good fics. Thank you.

As a side note- I was eased into the pairing by reading some Sam/Gabriel/Dean/Castiel- so if anyone knows any good polyamorous fics including those characters (three/four) I'm open to recommendations.

I cannot recommend Last Outpost of All That Is (http://gekizetsu.net/sn/lastoutpost.htm) enough. It was my gateway fic from no slash to gay incest. :P

*points at comment above*

BEST SAM/DEAN EVER. It's what I make suggest any newbie to S/D read. There aren't enough effusive adjectives in the world for Last Outpost.

Ayup, was just clicking to add that one. That was also my gateway fic. <3 Love it so very much... the way their relationship twists and gradually changes is just breathtaking and makes 100% PERFECT sense. I doubt I would have Sam/Dean as my OTP if I hadn't read this as my first Wincest fic.

I was like you and used to be opposed to Sam/Dean pairing and I second Last Post of All That Is. It is a great fic! And was my gateway into the pairing.
I would also reccomend The Truth In the Lie. it's a pretend couple fic. Very in character and well written. http://flawedamythyst.livejournal.com/291869.html

Dictionary for a Dead Language ~ http://britomart-is.livejournal.com/154955.html was my introduction. (Very angsty.) There's nothing explicit but the slow build of the relationship is gentle and gorgeous. It's still a favorite.

Hey there! :)

I will try to give you some polyamorous fics. Started searching for them a few weeks back, maybe there's stuff in my collection you like to read. ;)

The Not-A-Verse Verse (http://gedry.livejournal.com/151969.html) by gedry: Dean/Castiel/Gabriel - A bonding ritual between Dean, Cas and Gabriel gives Dean wings. Sam is left outside and lonely. He can't be happy without his soulmate Dean. Turns into Dean/Castiel/Gabriel/Sam in the end.

The Trinity Verse (http://scyllaya.livejournal.com/15093.html) by Scyllaya: Dean/Castiel/Gabriel, Human AU - Dean and Castiel were neighbors since they were five years old. They went to the same schools and even spent much of their free time together. And if anyone asked who their best friend was, they both answered immediately that it’s Gabriel. (Epic story from Childhood through high school and uni to adulthood with hurt!Gabriel. ♥)

Safest Place To Hide (http://bree-black.livejournal.com/81000.html) by bree_black: Dean/Sam/Castiel - Sam gets his soul back, but it’s working on overdrive to make up for lost time, and both his own emotions and those of people around him cause him physical pain. With Castiel’s help, Dean takes Sam to an abandoned farmhouse in the-middle-of-nowhere Maine to recuperate. But is lying low a long-term solution? (Domestic!fic plus Dean having trouble with the incest topic.)

Kick Of You Shoes And Lay Down (http://users.livejournal.com/_mournthewicked/349346.html) by _mournethewicked: Dean/Sam/Castiel - The only people allowed to touch Sam after he gets his soul back are his brother and an angel, and when they are touching him is the only time that he really feels whole. (drunk!boys porn... yeah very well written smut. ^^)

In Four Dimensions (http://libraryofsol.livejournal.com/141134.html) by entangled_now: Dean/Sam/Gabriel/Castiel - It was easy to gloss over what they were doing when it was the end of the world. Where exactly do they go from here. (Funny, smutty Team Free Love Awesomeness :D )

That's it for the moment. I have more moresome fics with other pairings, if you're interested in them let me know... Otherwise I made a request for fics really diving into and dealing with the incest or polyamory topic. Got some amazing recs... here (http://spnstoryfinders.livejournal.com/7561416.html)! If you're just starting with wincest, maybe these fics are a bit too heavy. On the other hand fics not just ignoring this taboo might be exactely what you're looking for... ;)

Have fun reading!

My 'gateway' fics were The Blow me Verse by RockStarPeach: http://rockstarpeach.livejournal.com/80400.html

They start out really porny (is that a word?) but there is a slow build to romance throughout the series. I liked this one because I could see it really happening this way. :)

Also, the audio fic for this is really good, read by meansprite. Links are on the authors page above.
