    Summary

    Maryanne had worked as a nurse in the psychiatric ward for years, which meant that she knew a bad case when she saw one. Sam Smith's certainly matched her description of a terrible and undeserved psychotic break, but he had something most of her patients didn't: an older brother named Dean.

    Summary

    Castiel’s multitude of sins haunt him in ways all too human, but water cannot cleanse him when he is drowning in his own guilt. Over the years, he’s tried to ignore his fear--after all, no one needs a broken angel--but he keeps failing and needing to be saved by those he should be saving. If Castiel is ever to be absolved, he must overcome his fear and walk into the water alone.

    Summary

    The reality is that, as long as Lucifer can find more ways to make Sam’s life a living hell, despite already being bloody and incoherent, at best, he’ll do it.

    Summary

    Remember in S7 when Cas said he couldn’t make Sam’s hallucinations just disappear? And then he did?

    Ha.

    Consider this a series of slightly canon-divergent codas for episodes 7X16 – 7x23. Sam’s problems take time to fix, still with Cas’ help, and with more of an emphasis on psychology and mental health. Cas only goes a little crazy, Sam actually deals with some of his trauma, and Dean still wants to beat Cas’ brains out.

    Summary

    It’s quiet in the dark, except for the sounds of their breathing, and then Dean says, “I could help you again.”

    “You have this… this guilt complex like you’re not allowed to touch me if you admit to yourself that you like it, but you do like it, so you punish yourself for it.”

    “I know.”

    Sam pulls himself free of the pillow and stares. “That has to stop, if we’re gonna do this.”

    “I know,” Dean repeats.

    Summary

    Dean's love language is told not in words, but in songs. In the notes of his favorite rock band and the rhythm of their melodies. His longest unfinished work is composed of Led Zeppelin songs, chosen for the feelings they evoke. It's Dean's life, reflected into one mix and shared carefully in hopes that he would be heard and understood.
