    Summary

    Tony's voice echoed in the cavern, hollow against the walls. “Are you out of your mind? That thing's going to take your head off!”

    The snake, however, did not move- did not even seem to be watching his teammate approach. And almost as though in response to his own voice, the sound from before came again, long and trembling- midway between a moan and a sob. This time, when his eyes darted in search of the source, the darkness did not block his sight: the naked figure of a man lay stretched beneath the snake, bound to an outcropping of rock. He was all ribs and sharp ridges of bone, all too-thin pale limbs, all open sores on top from the places the venom had splattered and on the bottom where the rock had rubbed away the flesh. The man's face, directly below the snake's mouth, had gotten the worst of it; it was raw and red, glistening with blood and exposed muscle and the slick of poison. The man shouldn't have been alive, much less moving, and yet he was- was thrashing weakly in his bonds, turning his head as far as it would go to avoid the white liquid as it dribbled down. It was not far enough.

    Tony thought he was going to be sick again.

    Summary

    There's a tag hanging on his storage pod, instead of the clipboard that documents his progress. On that tag, there's a single word stamped in red: defective. NH-01987's feet stick on the metal of the catwalk. Behind the ever-present metallic mask, his eyes grow huge.

    He knows what that tag means. It means that, in the morning, while the other MT units are collected for training, a guard will come for him. He'll be restrained and escorted down the metal corridors toward the east wing, into the double-doors that house the correctional facility. But he won't be up for re-programming, not this time.

    This time, they'll strap him down to a table for the last time ever. They'll pick him apart, to try and learn what caused his failures – and he has so very many of them, no matter how hard he's tried.

    When they're finished, they'll take what's left to the crematory. That will be the end of him: a pile of ashes and a wisp of smoke.

    Summary

    When Gabriel's misplaced concern for Cas's sex life results in a demon summoning, Cas is frustrated beyond belief. His brother won't accept his sexuality, and now he has an incubus in his house, unable to leave without a "boost." But the incubus is kind, and funny, and Cas finds he doesn't mind so much.

    Dean has spent his entire life making sure his partners were happy with his performance. After all, that's the only thing he's good for, according to his dad. So when he's summoned to someone who doesn't want to get down and dirty, Dean doesn't know how to handle it. He's never been seen as more than a glorified sex toy; what is he supposed to do when he's actually seen as a person?

    The two have a lot to work out, and worse, something isn't quite right with Dean. Can Dean and Cas figure out their differences before everything falls apart?
