A coda for 12.15 that answers the question of why Dean no longer seems to be afraid of hellhounds.

This is wildly AU but it got stuck in my head and wouldn't go away. Spoilery for 12.03.

Inspired by a post [livejournal.com profile] agelade made on Tumblr. Because really, why would Sam believe any of this is true?


...

Sam crashes before he even makes it to the Impala. Dean sees it coming, of course. He knows his brother is only upright because he's too stubborn to go down in front of those British bastards. He sees him tremble as he shifts his weight back and forth from his bandaged foot to his veterinarian-patched leg, watches him grasp his lacerated hand and then drop it quickly, as if he doesn't want to draw attention to it, and he knows Sam's running on adrenaline and willpower alone. So he's close enough to catch him when he stumbles and collapses halfway to the car. They bundle him into the back seat of the Impala and Cas lays a hand on his forehead, erasing the damage and leaving him in what Cas calls "a deep restful sleep."

When they finally get back to the bunker and Dean opens the car door, Sam jerks awake and stares at him like he's not really convinced he's there. And, well, Dean can't blame him for that. He doesn't look at Mary at all, and Dean's less sure about that part.

When Mary finally finds her boy he's stumbling through the woods, weak and confused, and convinced that she's been dead for years, which just confirms her worst fears, and the knowledge that Dean spent weeks (weeks that must have lasted decades for him, christ) in the grip of a djinn who fed on his nightmares breaks her heart right in two, but when she realizes the djinn gave him a future where Sam survived the fire, suddenly she's not sure if it fed on his greatest fears or granted his deepest wish, and when she has to wrap herself around six feet of bewildered teenager and explain that no, they cannot go find Sammy, she thinks maybe she's the one with nightmares bleeding out of her veins.

Sam is on his knees, hands bound behind his back, coughing up his own blood, knowing the face of the MoL's enforcer is the last thing he'll ever see, vision going dark around the edges, when he sees Dean run into the room, face frozen in horror, and somehow Mom is with him, somehow Mom and Dean are together, somehow his last desperate hope actually came true and Billie relented and let his brother into Heaven with their mother, and maybe they're here to meet Sam as he leaves this world, maybe Sam will be allowed to join them and maybe he won't, but it doesn't matter, this is enough, Dean made it to Heaven and Sam got to see him one last time and this is enough, so he struggles to his feet and it hurts, oh god it hurts, but he will not meet death on his knees, not this time, and he smiles before he spits a mouthful of blood at the bastard who twisted the blade into his gut, because this is a good day to die.

Sam's conversation with Chuck. Because it's criminal that we didn't get this in 11.22. (Banged out in an hour or so, and it shows, but I had to get it off my chest.)

Twenty-seven years later, Jesse and Cesar decide someone needs to keep an eye on the old bisaan burrow, just in case. A tag for 11.19, "The Chitters."

also on AO3

As it turns out, "retirement" is kind of a gray area. Cesar and Jesse don't pursue hunts, but when you're a hunter, when you know what's out there, the hunt finds you sometimes. When you're a hunter, you recognize that it isn't a wolf terrorizing the neighbor's cattle, and you feel compelled to do something about it. And Cesar was more dead-set on retirement than Jesse, but he's the one who figures out planting marigold and sage along the fenceline and painting a few sigils on the fenceposts will keep the bastards out. Which just proves that you can take the man out of the hunt, but you can't take the hunt out of the man.

And when the boys come along, even Cesar readily admits that he doesn't want them out there ignorant and unprotected.

A/N: Just a quick ~2300 word AU tag for episodes 11.18 and 11.17 that I couldn't get out of my head so I had to write it down. I read somewhere that 11.18, "Hell's Angel," was originally supposed to come before 11.17, "Red Meat." For the purposes of this fic I'm pretending things did actually happen in that order.

(The title is from Let's Go Crazy by Prince. For reasons.

Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
)

AO3 version

...


It seemed like a good idea at the time. Sam was still on doctor-ordered, post-werewolf bedrest. Dean had a call for help from a hunter in Tallahassee. Sam had an irrational hatred of the entire state of Florida. Amara was hunkered down somewhere off their radar, and Lucifer was under her control. There really didn't seem to be a good reason for Dean not to go help Buck out. One day down, one day to gank the monster, one day back. Even Sam insisted he'd be fine, that he wouldn't even leave the bunker.

God, it was a stupid idea.

It feels like sacrilege to rewrite any part of 11.17, because it was so good. And yet there are things we didn't get to see, and Sam really needed to be hospitalized after all of that, and if I weren't okay with sacrilege, I wouldn't be watching this show anyway. So here's my 11.17 tag.

All these wounds that I can't get unwound
Length: About 1200 words
Rating: Gen, PG for language
Warnings: None. A wee bit fluffy.
Characters: Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester
Spoilers: Through 11.14



A coda for 11.14.



Dean gets a second, just one second, to think everything's okay. Then he's hurtled from one nightmare into another. Then Cas turns into Lucifer and jesus fuck, that's just too much to process right now - he can't think about the doomed people on the sub and he can't think about Cas and he can't think about Lucifer and Sam's crumpled on the floor, bloodstained and shivering, and here's something he can think about. Here's something he has to think about.

Two drabbles for 11.04. Two different stories from the POV of two completely different versions of Piper.

Another 11.02 tag. You probably shouldn't read it. Because it was written quickly and sloppily and, well. Reasons.

There's some great 11.02 fic and meta out there, and more coming, I hope! I expressed a wish specifically for codas/tags showing the boys getting back together, and so far the universe has given me these. And they are stupendous.

I'm sure there are more out there, so please pimp yourself or somebody else in the comments!


And I also wrote one of my own... spoilers for 11.02, obviously.

I don’t know if I’ll manage to drabble every episode this season, but here's 100 words about 11.01. This was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] galwithglasses's comment, because we agreed that one thing was kind of weird.

This started as a challenge from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] kalliel to write tags for each episode of season 10. I decided to write a 100-word drabble for each episode in season 10 (plus a bonus prologue for the end of season 9.) And then I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] spnspiration bingo challenge, and I ended up with pointillism ("a technique of painting in which small dots are applied in a pattern to form an image") on my bingo card. And I thought that square would forever remain open, given that I'm not actually a visual artist. But then I thought, huh. Drabbles. The small dots of fanfiction. Could a series of dotlike drabbles form an image of an entire season?


Let's find out!
