Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Where Shades Of Gray Now Bleed" (Dean, Ruby, PG)  
Title: Where Shades Of Gray Now Bleed
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Dean and Ruby (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (Season 3): Dean knows how demons are, or at least he used to.
Author's Notes: Happy Birthday to sierra_fox, who tried to kill me by asking for Dean's conflicted feelings about himself and Ruby after she saves his life in Malleus Maleficarum. :)
Also for supernatural100, this is "Reversal."

x-x-x-x-x

She actually saved them, but why? Their options were gone. Why not let the demon side win?

Ruby—her name is Ruby. The word burns at the edges of his mind, a name too earthbound for a demon, like Janice or Daniel or Bob.

Or even Dean.

"I remember what it's like," she'd said, "being human," and God, he didn't—couldn't have—why did she have to tell him?

A year ago, all demons were evil and Dean killed them without thinking twice.

Today he learned there are layers and degrees, and worse yet: someday, the demon could be him.

I loved Dead Like Me! Terrific show.

the dog in my icon is named jeffrey.
?!? When I was growing up, pets were named things like "Tigger" (one of our cats has that name now) or "Ginger" (color) or "Fluffy/Spot/Lady/Duke/Rex," or some kind of attribute.

Not so much with the "Martha" or "Jeffrey" or the "Lily the cat" I once knew.

Of course, my husband's father's cat was named "Kitty." :0
