    Summary

    Cas remembered the Cold Summer of 1816, after the Tambora volcano had erupted. It had filled the atmosphere with impenetrable ash that clung to the angels’ wings like cement, failures multiplying like feather lice they just could not relieve. He could not help but remember it now, as he watched snowflakes strike the windshield with wet clicks, splashing, and melting before the windshield wipers could toss them to the side.

    Silence had fallen between them, as flimsy and sheltering as a child’s lopsided blanket fort. Dean looked at him curiously, one hand reached over and squeezed Cas’ so Cas pulled it into his lap. He scooted just a little closer to Dean. He wasn’t cold, but he felt it pressing around his shoulders. It felt like when he was human, in Detroit, the world preparing for winter while he sat helplessly on the stoop of an unlucky restaurant, wondering which frost would finally end him.

    He didn’t like it.

    In which there is peace, and Cas and Dean must face the weight of their past to build a kinder future.

    Summary

    richard and emily gilmore have their daughter lorelai and their son richard the second, but he prefers when you call him by his middle name 'sam'. when richard and emily divorce, richard escapes with a pregnant lorelai and her boyfriend while sam is left behind with his alcoholic mother.

    but stars hollow, block island, rhode island isn't that far from hartford, connecticut. all sam has to do is make it until he graduates, that's all. then he can move to stars hollow and finally get his family back.

    even better though? there's this amazing, curvy goddess named deana danes that sam is so madly in love with there. she's goth, or punk - either way, dean has a formal relationship with the colour black. she fixes cars on the island, cracks jokes and isnt all that lady-like because sam has totally seen her burp the alphabet right in front of him to win a bet once.

    deana danes is someone sam should never bring home to his mother, but then again, why would sam want emily to ruin the life he's always wanted?

    written in lowercase on h.e.'s chapters.

    Summary

    Finally, once Sam had ripped enough demons from their earthly hosts and shoved them into the pit of Hell, once he'd downed enough blood to turn his eyes dark and been able to hold his hand in an open flame without burning, Ruby turned to him with a coy smile and appraising eyes.

    "Good boy," she said, and she looked like she really meant it. "You're ready."

    As long as Sam can remember, he's always had this... darkness in him. It showed itself in different ways - anger, self-loathing, hatred. When he goes to Stanford, it gets better. Bit by bit.

    Jess helps, going to an actual doctor helps, having a stable residence and routine helps. Until November 2nd.

    Major TW for suicidal thoughts, idealization, and attempt. Sam is not okay in this fic and he's working through it. Read with caution.
