    In the days following the opening night of Supernatural: The Musical, Cas finds Dean, Dean finds himself, and Sam... Well, Sam finds fanfiction.

    "To those behind the curtain, please, no attention pay.
    You cannot know who pulls the strings or how they get their way.
    For there's a Game of Fic afoot, and canon's on the line.
    One can either ship to live or, by writing, die."

    ...But when has a Winchester ever left well-enough alone?

    Summary

    Cast out of Syrup Village and abandoned by his crew, the former Black Cats pirate captain finds himself living the life of a nomad, wandering from place to place in an attempt to make ends meat. Thus, he promised himself to record his endeavors in an attempt to better plot against others, though he may quickly come to regret that decision.

    Captain Kuro is a brilliant man, and has taken to recording his travels in a rather plain-looking journal. While dull on the outside, the inside is far more colorful than he'd ever intended it to be.
