Happy Birthday to pheebs1! Here's a little bittersweet something just for you. :)

Title: This Uncertain Dance
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: For the first time, Sam thinks there might be hope after all.
Author's Notes: Happy Birthday, pheebs1! I hope it's been wonderful. :)
This post-3x10, "Dream A Little Dream" coda is also for supernatural100 and the prompt of "Forgiveness."

x-x-x-x-x

If Dean doesn't want to die, then there's hope. Finally.

He's raced toward the end for months, piling through the Deadly Sins, and it's made Sam lonely and desperate and tired. Like the Dean he once knew was already gone.

"I'm sorry I pushed you away."

He'd confronted Dean with it but the disconnection remained, with Dean still walled off and untouchable. It's the first time Dean's admitted it, and God, it matters—more than Sam expected.

"I understand," Sam says, chest aching. "It's okay."

He forgives Dean for panicking... but not for dying.

Does Dean forgive him for living?
