Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Summary: Post-Season 2 drabble on hard choices and final reckonings.
Author's Notes: Written for my Switch_25 table, this is "Dirt."
Too many secrets buried deep— too many to salt and burn, or cement into eternal silence.
Like vengeful ghosts, these thoughts haunt and harrow the waking hours: bargained lives, hollow souls, daggers bloodied for the thrill of the hunt as much as justice or secondhand salvation.
Dirt clings to the corners of grave-muddied shovels and guilty choices. All the hardbound rules for a complex world become twisted when black and white fade into questions within questions.
Does the greater good absolve the lesser wrongs along the way?
In a lifetime, can the sin of loving too much ever be forgiven?
