2 Works in Supernatural and J2 Big Bang 2012
The Shadows appeared a year ago. They're dark, silent, blurry masses that don't seem to do much, and most people have gotten used to them. Dean's just an alcoholic, washed-up crook whose own brother wants him dead, but he doesn't trust them–especially now that he's got one hot on his trail, and it won't quit talking in Sam's voice.
And that's before an angel and a demon join the chase and Dean starts to turn into a Shadow...and why does everyone keep talking about an apocalypse?
Written for spn_j2_bigbang. Season 6 AU. With no end in sight on their quest to restore Sam's soul or to figure out just what Crowley is up to in his search for Purgatory, Sam and Dean break off in order to investigate a string of mysterious deaths in which the victims exhibited all the signs of radiation poisoning with no apparent cause before their deaths. The case takes a darker turn, however, when soon after they begin investigating Sam begins to exhibit the same symptoms as the victims. Suddenly Dean finds himself facing the disturbing dilemma of whether it might not be easier to let go of this empty-shell version of his brother and simply let the illness take its course...
