LF Spander Camp AU

I'm looking for this fic I read a long while back. In it Xan and Jess go to (bible?) camp. Spike is a gardener(?) there. Angel and a few other people from the show work there(I think) as well. Anyway Spike brings out the gay in Xan and a lot of hot man lovin follows and all is well and good until somehow the camp leaders(?) find out and Spike is fired and has to leave. Thats all I remember. Sound familiar to anyone. If so please point me in the direction which I can find this fic. I've been looking for it so long I'm beginning to think I imagined it.

Thanks in advance.

Foody food

Setting: Present day

Searched: Yahoo/google for food critics/critiques, read "How to be a Foodie" on slashfood.com,currently reading through the dining&wine section of the NYTimes.

My character is really into food, you could call her a foodie.
I do not know th difference between virgin and extra virgin olive oil let let alone between high/low grade olive oil.

I am not a foodie, so I don't know how to feed her.

My question is how can you tell the difference between high quality olive oil and low quality olive oil? How about high/low quality cheese? What about high/low quality anything else? 

Are there standards for the kind of sugar a foodie would buy? Or eggs?  Or butter? or anything?

I don't know where to buy real butter.

I guessing a foodie wouldn't buy kraft cheddar.

I don't even know what saffron tastes like. I am lost.

Where could I go to find in depth descriptions of food?

Besides freshness, what kind of things do foodies look for in the food they buy?

I'm considering setting my story in NY. Would there be places to go there to buy the kinds of food foodies look for? wholes foods? A farmers market?

Anything you can tell me about foodies, the kind of food they might eat or buy or just anything would be greatly appreciated.

LF stories feat.John and Sam

Hi, someone posted earlier today looking for fics where Sam gets treated unfairly.I was reading through the replies and needless to say most of the fics recced were of John mistreating Sam. I'm sure I've ranted a few times on here about my major dislike of how John treated Sam on the show and how he treats him in many fics(meanly,in some fics with disdain and obviously favoring Dean). This dislike is also the main cause of my dislike for the character of John Winchester.

The problem is I think JDM is HOT so I often find myself really wanting to like the characters he plays and that includes John Winchester. 

So now I'm looking for any fics in which Sam and John work out their problems or even actually get along. Fics in which John is a good father, and John and Sam show some familial affection towards each other. Any fics where Sam or John are not being all ass-holey(yes I know it's not a real word, moving on) to each other, at least not for the entire fic.

No daddy!cest please.

Everything else is welcome including self-pimps.

In short, I want you to make me like John so on your mark, get set, GO
