Ok, so I was trawling the interwebs looking for some Dean/Impala fics I haven't read yet, and discovered that there's this movement of people who like to imagine the impala coming to life as Ian Somerhalder, basically. I read a couple of fics over at AO3, and they were incredibly HOTT!

My question is, WHERE ARE ALL THESE IAN!PALA FICS???!?!?!!!?!?!?!?? Cos I can only find those two, and a bunch of fans tumblr'ing about how hot it'd be, but I wanna read FICS people! So please, for the love of Metallicar, find me these wonderful ficcies, you wonderful people you!

Also, any other Dean/Impala fics I may not have read yet, would be awesome. Het or Slash are both fine, btw. I've basically read everything at AO3, and am making my way through ff.net, but if you know of any located elsewhere, including here on LJ, I'd be incredibly grateful, my Lovelies!

(I previously posted asking about impala-pov style fics where she's still a car, which I got a couple recs from, and someone wrote me one just for me, yay, but any more of those would be especially welcomed too. Cos I'm obsessed with Dean's baby, of course!)

Okay, thanks!!!

Also, there isn't a 'pairing: dean/impala' tag. Or an 'altered: human!impala' tag. (Or that could be a genre, or a kink, instead. But I think it fits as an 'altered'.) Also, a 'point of view: impala' tag would be nice (pretty pretty please??). I realise the mods have worked very hard on their tagging (which is incredibly organised and awesome now, thanks for all the hard work there lovely moddies!), these are just suggestions. Which would fit this request, if you're looking for a post to add them to...

OK, got a couple of impala requests. These are general requests, insofar as I don't have any specific fics in mind, so please, rec away!

1. Ok, I realise this is a well-used and asked for trope, but, the impala gets turned into a woman. However, what I specifically want to read, is something where, somewhere in the story, the fact that Dean beat on her while he was fixing her after John died gets brought up, dealt with in some way. Maybe in her human form she even has a scar or something... I want it to end happy though, so definitely angsty and Dean!guilt, but reconciling and such too. Maybe, it could be set just after it had happened, so it's all still a fresh issue, so there's dealing with some of Dean's deep grieving issues or something...

2. The impala is still a car, but is aware. There are two kinds of this I'm looking for: 
    a) Dean doesn't know about it, but it's always been there. I just want to hear her side of those special conversations between Dean and his baby. Her thoughts and such about his taking such good care of her, maybe when he's under her hood it turns her on, who knows, I just wanna hear how she responds to stuff, like Dean calling her baby and sweetheart and telling her sweet nothings and such. 
    b) Something happens to make Dean be able to hear her thoughts/talking to him. Maybe it's that she can suddenly speak, so Sam can hear her too, or maybe it's that somehow Dean suddenly has the ability to hear her, so it's only him, but I want to see how the sweetness he shows her develops when he realises she's aware.

(The second request is inspired by a fic I read a long time ago, where Dean was cursed somehow to be able to hear inanimate objects talk. Most of them were rude to him, but there was a bit at the end, where they were about to reverse the curse, and he just wanted to say one last goodbye to the Impala. Sam said something about how he always talks to her, and he replies that yes he does, but she doesn't usually speak back to him. It was really sweet and got me thinking about those special one-sided conversations Dean has with his baby, and all that love he showers on her, and how loved she must feel...)

Ok, thanks guys! :D

ETA: I've also been asked in the comments about the fic I read ages ago I mentioned in the brackets. I cannot find a link and I even googled but couldn't find it. I'm sure I came across it on here, but it was a long time ago. If anyone recognises it and has a link handy, please comment! Actually, I'd like to read it again myself too, so, please?? :D I remember, most of the objects were mean to him. I especially remember a scene in a hotel room where a pen and a lamp both insulted him. But his baby was nice to him, of course. Although, the fic wasn't really about the Impala much. Which is why I'm so interested in the #2 requests so much, I guess! K, thanks!

ETA2: I eventually, a while back, posted here again, asking about the fic I mentioned above in the brackets, about Dean hearing inanimate objects talk. It is The Pen Is Mouthier Than The Sword by [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic. Highly recommend her stuff.
