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.

His fears were riveting to watch, and I loved how this little detail from Ruby changes everything for him. I remember watching Jensen's face during Ruby's words and he showed Dean's mind shift perfectly.
That was really one of the most vivid moments of Season Three for me, when Dean found out that 1) it doesn't "end" upon going to Hell (and you can still see how far you've fallen), and 2) he'll become what he hates.

Such exquisite agony, finding those things out!

Well, I'm so glad (and relieved) that you liked it and that it wasn't a disappointment! :D
