Benny Lafitte/Dean Winchester, also known as Denny, is the slash pairing of Benny Lafitte and Dean Winchester in Supernatural fandom.

Canon

Dean and Benny meet when Dan and Castiel are accidentally sent to Purgatory at the end of season 7. Dean and Benny develop a mutual partnership and then friendship during their time together in Purgatory. At the beginning of season 8 Dean returns to earth and brings Benny's soul with him, and performs a spell so he can return Benny to his body. They maintain their friendship throughout the season, even though Dean tries to distance himself, because of Sam's mistrust of Benny. Dean kills Benny, with his permission, so that Benny can return to Purgatory and help Sam and Bobby. Benny was supposed to return with Sam, but instead stays behind to fight the leviathans, giving Sam a chance to escape.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Purgatory: because Dean was there for almost a year, but we only saw a small fraction of his time there, many writers will explore what his time there, with Benny, was like
  • Benny Lives: Benny does not die at the end of season 8, or is resurrected
  • All Human AU: where Benny is not a vampire, perhaps he was never a vampire, or somehow cured of vampirism
  • Sex Positions: usually Dean is written as a bottom and Benny as the top
  • Past relationship: sometimes their relationship is characterized in the past tense, often as a stepping stone to the Dean/Cas relationship
  • Threesome or Poly: this is almost always with Castiel, in fanworks they are sometimes referred to as Team Purgatory, because of their collective time there
