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 spn_gen_bigbang, and also fills the "dark" square on my bingo card for spnspiration
Notes: Massive thanks to two writers who are much better than me - indiachick, who gave some much-needed advice very early on in the writing process (Look! I'm finally posting it!), and 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.
The title is from the song "Counting Stars" by One Republic.
