    Summary

    Sam doesn't bother explaining, just tips his chin to let Dean see the livid bruising where the witch's doll strangled him.

    Dean hisses. "Jesus, Sam." Callused fingertips run down his neck, lingering over the mottled marks and exerting just the tiniest, fluttering bit of pressure before returning to the wheel. When Sam glances over, his brother is staring at the road again, too intent to be casual. "I guess I know why you didn't mention it, but... man, you gotta let me know if you're really hurting. There's a line when it comes to this kind of thing. A little sore throat is on the sure, okay side of the line, and my-throat-is-swelling-closed-'cause-I-got-freakin'-strangled-nearly-to-death is on the tell me right the hell away side."

    In other words... Placed after the end of 12.20, when Sam doesn't wake up to Dean frantically calling his name. Sam isn't okay, Dean isn't okay, and there's a laundry list a mile long of reasons why. Sam talks. Dean listens. Actual meaningful conversation happens. Sam might sleep in Dean's bed. There was too much pain and too little casual affection and care this episode, honestly. Needless to say, spoilers abound. Proceed with caution.

    Summary

    It had been three full weeks since they had rescued Castiel from the clutches of the worst parts of humanity. Dean had known Castiel was vulnerable and human yet he had STILL kicked his best friend out of the bunker anyway. The regret had set in instantly. After 6 weeks of Sam and Dean desperately searching up and down, they had finally found their former angel. He had clearly seen some shit and was no longer the rock of an angel they knew him to be. He was jumpy and skittish and quieter than usual.
    Homeless life had not been kind to Castiel and he was clearly still feeling the effects of humanity's cruelty.
    Sam and Dean had to fix Castiel.

    Summary

    Sequel to "The Air Moves In to Fill the Spaces Where My Body's Been."
    --

    So, now that Dean knows what Sam’s been up to, they’re fucking like bunnies. They play footsie under the Formica table in the diner while Dean eats waffles, they make out in the backseat when they’re tired of driving, and Dean wants to know if they can have deep-fried Twinkies at the reception when they get gay married in Massachusetts.

    Or, well. That's how Sam had imagined it.

    It actually goes like this:

    Sam, in his twenty years of living, had never known what it meant to have a home...

    Summary

    “Sam?” Dean reaches out toward him without thinking.

    Sam reacts to his touch like it burns, eyes wide and unfocused as his hands lash out; under his breath, barely audible, Dean hears Sam whispering no; no, please. Something cold twists in his gut as he retreats, pressing himself against the other side of the stairwell and raising his hands in surrender. “Sam, it's me,” he says. “It's Dean.”

    But Sam doesn't hear him. He's muttering and still holding his hands up, and Dean sees a trickle of blood slide down from his hairline before following the contours of his face into the dip under his eye and then down his nose. Sam knocks himself off the step and fumbles down two more before Dean finally hears him breathe.

    “Dean?” he whispers.

    In other words... After the events of 11x14, Sam's feeling the effects of what Lucifer did to him but figures Dean has enough on his plate. Things don't work out as he planned, and Dean figures out anyway. Needless to say, spoilers abound. Proceed with caution.

    Summary

    Everybody needs a safe place.
    Dean Winchester seems to have found his safe place at a coffee shop that stays open till two am.
    Oh and his opinion of the place has nothing to do with the very attractive, annoying as all hell, college student that he always seems to run in to.

    Summary

    Dean does it—as he does everything—with a bang. Later, Sam won't be able to remember quite how it went down (he thinks Rowena in chains was involved, remembers sigils and spellwork and maybe even the actual door of the temporary cage being blown off), but he does remember, with perfect clarity, the very first moment he heard Dean's voice, raw and desperate.

    “Damn it, Sam, answer me if you can hear me!”

    He remembers staring, semi-conscious and trembling, through the bars of the temporary cage, remembers leaning toward the voice.

    In other words After what happened to his brother in 11x09, O Brother Where Art Thou, Dean will do anything to get Sam out and get him home. The rest they can figure out as they go. Needless to say, please don't read this if you don't want spoilers for the events of the episode.

    Summary

    It takes until Sam is unconscious in a pool of his own blood for Dean to realize that maybe something's gotta give. So maybe Dean's angry. Maybe he gets a little reckless, slow to respond when he hears the sounds of a scuffle. He has a good excuse, though, airtight: he'll protect his brother to the end, no questions, but this? This isn't his brother.

    In other words... It takes near death for Dean to warm up to his soulless brother, but some things are just muscle memory. Sam refuses pain meds, Dean thinks the soulless guy is kinky, and in the end, maybe he understands the fathomless robo-Sam a little better than he did before.

    Summary

    Every part of Sam burns. There's blood on his lips that's not his own (not that kind; it doesn't taste right), and even the smallest rustle or crunch of leaves crashes against his eardrums and sends pain splintering through his skull. He's so thirsty.

    Frantic attempts to remember how he got here leave him with a soup of images and impressions—color, tension, blood, pain, desperation. He starts from what he knows. He was on a hunt...

    In other words... Still reeling from what happened when Sam was soulless, Bobby gets careless and a vampire turns Sam before they can put it down. Badly wounded, Sam's body uses all its remaining resources in an attempt to slowly heal him, and it's a long way back home. The cravings and even the agony of the cure aren't the worst things Sam has to face.

    Summary

    Heaven is closed, and after Sam's sacrifice, so is Hell. Crowley is missing, Abaddon is raising Hell on Earth, and Sam and Dean are lost, trapped in a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, where Sam can’t wake up but also can’t die, and nothing Dean does can help. To find them, Castiel will do whatever it takes, including agreeing to become the vessel to the only angel willing to answer. And that's only the beginning...

    Summary

    Sam's always thought it's this fiction-thing, biting your lip until it bleeds. It seems dramatic and all, but short of tearing off too much dry skin or having really dry lips to start with, it takes more pressure than most people are willing to exert, really, to break the skin of the lip and make it actually bleed.

    The pain of broken skin is absolutely nothing, though, to the feeling of Lucifer's hands rooting around in his innards (with that sort of gleeful detachment that the fallen archangel must have spent millennia cultivating) and tearing out whatever displeases him.

    In other words... Sam wakes up from a Cage trauma-fueled nightmare and can't shake the dream. Dean helps by turning on the heater in high summer and sweating through it. In the end, there's nothing like a bit of blasphemy to shake the cold in his bones.

    Summary

    “Shh,” Dean's voice, when he speaks, is scraped raw and bitten-back, his breaths broken, but Sam knows his eyes will be dry. This is a happy moment, and neither of them is allowed to cry right now.

    “Sammy,” Dean whispers, hands busy stroking through Sam's hair and down his back (gentle, feather-light so as not to disturb the broken ribs). “You hear that? The ambulance is coming. You're gonna be all right, huh? You're gonna be all right.”

    In other words: John responds a little too enthusiastically to Sam's snark when he uncovers his son's acceptance letter, and Sam leaves, injured and betrayed. Thankfully, it doesn't end there. For the prompt: What happened during the Stanford fight and how Dean felt about his brother leaving (and not wanting him to go). Anything about this would be great.

    Summary

    Sam thinks something's wrong when Dean won't meet his eyes and leaves to buy pie by himself. He knows something's wrong when Dean returns with pies and a salad, for God's sake. He's absolutely beside himself when Dean offers to share the pie. Dean never shares pie. It's somewhere in the Book of Things that Are, right beside gravity and sunrises.

     

    In other words: Dean has a secret. Sam may or may not figure it out. Angsty, awkward brotherliness placed in the fourth season, somewhere between Jump The Shark and The Rapture.

    Summary

    On the way up the stairs, leaning almost all his weight on Dean while trying to force his legs to manage the next step (and the next, and the next) without falling, Sam asks Dean where he gets all the handkerchiefs.

    “You use it?” he mutters when Dean doesn't answer.

    “Hmm?” Dean grunts as Sam fumbles the second-to-last step, dipping to catch his not-so-little brother before he face-plants.

    “You, uh...” Words. Sam forces them out through the fog in his brain and the laziness of his tongue. “You like, blow your nose on it?”

    Dean doesn't respond, and just barely manages to put off the conversation they should be having until they get home.

    Episode tag for 10x19 The Werther Project.

    I was kind of shocked by Sam's readiness to die in this episode, and even more shocked by the fact that neither Dean nor the show itself chose to really address it. As you can see, I took things into my own hands.

    Summary

    After the fever breaks, Sam lies pliant and trusting as Dean presses a kiss to one cheek and then helps his brother out of sweat-damp superhero pajamas and into clean clothes with all the focus and patience of a saint.

    John watches, and wonders, from the outside, if either of the boys realizes how deep that bond goes. He wonders if anyone else will see it, will try to break it.
     

    In other words: John watches young Dean care for a sick, fevered Sam, and regrets the choices that have led them here.
