    Summary

    Sometimes a god looks like a monster looks like a person; sometimes a person is a monster is a god. Good honest salt and silver doesn’t work on everyone. Some things die strange. Some things kill you with them.

    Or: an American Gods AU

    Or: The angel shows up in Dean's motel room on a Thursday. Everything else shows up after.

    Summary

    Melanie takes a deep breath and decides that she is going to be a normal person about this. She’s not a total bloody basket case. She is completely capable of making small talk with a vaguely creepy stranger in a bar without flipping her lid. "What kind of music do you play?"

    He laughs again, like she’s making a joke. "You've heard it."

    Melanie deliberately unclenches her jaw. "...no. I haven't."

    He leans in closer, like he's sharing a secret. He smells like iron. "You're hearing it right now."

    Summary

    He can see-- he can feel-- he is-- colors that Mikey shouldn’t be able to comprehend, doesn’t have the rods and cones for. He can see everything, can feel the great black expanse of the sea behind him and knows every square foot, knows the crack of the earth at the bottom, the hot comfort of the magma, the call of the ocean, the call of the earth, the scream of the stars in the sky. It hurts, which he would’ve expected, if he could’ve expected anything; it breaks his heart, also expected; it doesn’t feel all that different from just-- being alive. Unexpected.
    He’s never belonged, has harbored the secret suspicion that no one does, that ‘belonging’ and ‘family’ were terms made up to sell products to unfulfilled American couples, but this-- he feels it now, in his blood through his bones, how he was grown from the soil, how the sea pulses through him, and the link between him and this-- massive-- thing standing over him, drooling over its claws, head cocked like Mikey is a new scientific discovery.
