The song Lucifer sings is Didn't Leave Nobody But the Baby.

Sam's laid flat, pinned to the rack, arms and legs spread wide, iron spikes thrust through his wrists and ankles, and they're unnecessary, Lucifer can hold him motionless with his mind alone, they're simply decorative, the same way Sam is decorative.

Because I'm a very visual creature, Lucifer explains, over the sound of Sam's bones splintering as the spikes are hammered into his flesh, I like beautiful things, and you're so beautiful like this.

Lucifer runs a hand through Sam's hair, familiar caress that makes his blood run cold, picks up a knife and starts the cut on Sam's right wrist, just above the bloody wound gouged by the spike, pretty bracelet of blood curling around his wrist, isn't that nice, Sam, don't you like that.

He makes his way up Sam's arm, along his shoulder, and across his throat, carving a warm line of pain all along the way, down Sam's left arm, slicing a matching circle around that wrist, so beautiful.

Sings as he cuts, go to sleep little baby, go to sleep little baby, your mama's gone away and your daddy's gone to stay, didn't leave nobody but the baby.

Glides the blade further, cutting a trail down Sam's torso, splitting into a Y just above his navel, continues the cut down each leg, ending with circles of blood around both ankles.

Hold still, Lucifer murmurs, I think I can get it all off in one piece this time, shoves his fingers into the cuts, forcing his hand inside, and Sam doesn't want to scream, doesn't want to give Lucifer the pleasure of hearing him scream, but it's ripped from his throat as the skin is ripped from his body, and Sam's shrieks don't quite drown out the horrible wet tearing sound of skin separating from muscle.

As he lies gasping and whimpering, bloody flaps of skin folded on top of bare muscle and bone, he feels the knife again, this time tracing along his forehead, down the side of his face, around his chin and back up again, and Lucifer grasps the edge of the laceration and pulls and peels as Sam screams -

Sam wakes with a shout and sits up, gasping for air.

Characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester

Rating: R for language and show-level violence

A season 2 casefic that takes place immediately after "Playthings." Still reeling from John's revelation that Dean might have to kill his brother, the Winchesters find themselves in Nashville. They're investigating a case in which people are being brutally murdered by their loved ones, which cuts just a little too close to home, considering that Sam is trying to get Dean to accept that he might have to kill his own loved one.

My first casefic! \o/ Huge shoutout to my lovely artist, [livejournal.com profile] stargazingchola. Please visit her art post and show her some love (note that the art is spoilery, so please read the fic before you visit her art post.)

Many, many thanks to my wonderful betas, [livejournal.com profile] celtic_forest and [livejournal.com profile] gingersnap1224.

Also available on AO3

The title and chapter titles are from the One Republic song Stop and Stare.

Signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, is what I did (begins biting fingernails).

Summary: After Sam jumps into the cage with Lucifer, Dean would do anything to undo it. What happens when he is given that opportunity? Written for the 2014 [livejournal.com profile] spn_gen_bigbang, and also fills the "dark" square on my bingo card for [livejournal.com profile] spnspiration

Notes: Massive thanks to two writers who are much better than me - [livejournal.com profile] indiachick, who gave some much-needed advice very early on in the writing process (Look! I'm finally posting it!), and [livejournal.com profile] balder12, my wonderful beta, who was also full of good advice, and if you don't find yourself saying "that makes no sense," thank them. Getting help on Supernatural fic from these two is like asking Jane Austen for advice on your Regency romance.

[livejournal.com profile] matchboximpala created the gorgeous graphics, which can also be found on her art masterpost, and I loved both of the styles she came up with so much that I couldn't choose, so you get both.

The title is from the song "Counting Stars" by One Republic.

The road stretches out in front of the Impala, dark and empty, and Dean thinks it's a pretty good metaphor for the rest of his life. )

First, I didn't manage to post yesterday, so I missed the chance to wish [livejournal.com profile] dreamsofspike a happy birthday in a timely manner. Hope it was a good one!

Second, I'm signing up for my first Big Bang, except mine will probably be a mini bang, so I guess I should say my first bang of any kind. But I'm kind of excited and kind of nervous. Best case scenario: an amazing artist falls in love with my story and feels compelled to illustrate every scene. Worst case scenario: no one picks my story at all. Join me at [livejournal.com profile] spn_gen_bigbang and see which one comes true! (Spoiler alert: it will not be #1.)

Third, the movie Bedazzled is on right now. It's the 2000 remake, not the 1967 original, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the Deal With the Devil trope in which the Devil always gives you, technically, exactly what you asked for, but it's never what you actually wanted.

And now I really want Supernatural to examine this. They've kind of skirted around the edges of it, but I want them to jump in head first. Like, what if the crossroads demon brought Sam back to life in AHBL2, but he was brain dead from oxygen deprivation, because Dean forgot to specify that he wanted him not only alive, but healthy?

Fourth, you know what makes me happy? When Carry On Wayward Son comes on the radio. You know what makes me really happy? When we're in my husband's car, and it comes on because he has it on his iPhone, and my teenager in the back takes out her earbuds and drops whatever she was listening to so she can sing along with us. That's a good feeling. :-)
