Supernatural Gen Drabble: "No Saviors But Ourselves" (PG)

Title: No Saviors But Ourselves
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drama, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: (Post S2) The "real" drabble on Once Upon A Time for win_non_con.
Author's Notes: Part of the drac_suite booty for the Treasure Hunt, and it also suits the 100_ghosts "Once Upon A Time" challenge. The 'crack' drabble, by comparison, is here.

x-x-x-x-x

Once upon a time, they were unburdened and free. Their dreams were simple—just the four of them together—but their end was simple too.

Fire burned away their past (their future), leaving only grief and impossible questions. The three survivors fled.

They wandered, chasing answers and the solace of vengeance for two decades. Fractured at the end, they found each other briefly before tragedy struck again.

Trading himself for Dean (who later did the same for Sam), John repeated a family legacy he'd never known.

Two are left. If the world burns down, they'll die fighting the flames together.
