Pairings: Gen
Word Count: 29,534
Warnings: harm of children, self harm, body horror, language, mental health issues, language
Summary: Sometimes, a parent might tuck in their child at night and find an empty bed in the morning. In 1996, Sam Winchester vanished in an empty room. He reappeared two months later with missing hair, bruises and vacant eyes. By 2000, Dean Winchester is a hunter in his own right. He travels to Minnesota where his brother now lives with Pastor Jim, a long-time friend of their father's. The thing is, John Winchester recently went into the house that ruined his youngest son and he never came back out. Thing is, Sam is the only person who knows what's in the house. Thing is, Sam Winchester hasn't spoken in four years.

Word Count: 4K +
Warnings: domestic discipline, blow job of dubious consent, debt slavery, humiliation, spanking, medical procedures, mob mentality, mild gore, drug use, mad scientist AU Summary: Jeff's pretty new admin is a lot more competent that the usual. It's too bad that Jeff isn't interested in his typing.

Rating: T / 15
Word count: ~7K
Warnings: Memories of abuses suffered in Hell. Thoughts of self-harm and torture.

Artist: defiler_wyrm
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Wordcount: 10,193
Summary: After a human Cas spends a week on his own in the cold streets of Colorado, Dean regrets kicking him out and tracks him down. He brings Cas back to the bunker, and with Sam and Ezekiel out of town on research about Heaven, they have a lot of time alone to help Cas come to terms with his humanity. Their friendship slips into something more, and everything would be idyllic if not for Cas's constant nightmares, and the inexplicable, aching pain that keeps spreading further and further across his body.

Pairing(s): Sam/Dean (one-sided or mutual, depending on how you want to read things), Dean/Crowley
Wordcount: 6329
Warnings: Graphic depictions of violence, rape/non-con, and incest/implied incest
Summary: Sam isn't sure what's wrong with him. Nothing makes sense any longer. His world is filled with blackouts, blood, too many Dean's for him to keep track of, and the (usually) disembodied voice of the strange man in the black suit that is he never sure if he is friend or foe.

Flashes of pain and suffering tell her that The Butcher has struck again. She needs to find Dean to tell him what she knows. Will she get to Dean before The Butcher gets to her? Castiel Novak is excellent at what he does. Oh, not the police work he does with Dean. That's his side gig. You see, Detective Castiel Novak is The Butcher, and he can hardly wait to see the look on his partner, and lover's, face when he realizes it.

If the cause of the disappearances were anything as straightforward as ghosts or monsters, it's the sort of thing Ellen and Jo would have cleaned up within a week. But all they have to work with is a sluggish town and rolling, quiet desert. That, and a canyon where everything keeps slipping further and further away from what should be familiar. Case fic.
