Supernatural/Reaper Gen Fiction: Diabolical Conversations (Crossover, PG)  
Title: Diabolical Conversations (Supernatural/Reaper Crossover)
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Azazel (the Y.E.D.) and The Devil (Gen, Crossover, All-Dialogue, Humor)
Rating: PG
Summary: Azazel and the Reaper-universe Devil get together to talk about their respective Sams.
Author's Notes: Drabble Meme offering for astrothsknot, which became far longer than a drabble and really wanted to be all-dialogue for some reason. Set in S2 for Supernatural and pre-series for Reaper, but has spoilers to the present for both.

x-x-x-x-x

"Azazel, come in, sit! Some wine?"

"Please."

"What's it been, a couple of decades? How's that project coming?"

"My special kids? We're in the final test phase now, Sam Winchester versus Jake Talley. It could go either way, honestly. Sam's a do-gooder, but he's got the background. Jake wants it, though—he just might pull it off. I'm anxious to see which of them comes out on top."

"Excellent!"

"What about you? I remember something about—"

"Ah yes, my own special children. The new crop's almost ready, sort of a mixed bag so far. Sam Oliver comes due soon—one of those earnest slacker-types with a heart so pure it almost makes you bleed. Though he did drop out of college, and that might be a cause for concern. It's a human construct, of course, but it shows a certain lack of follow-through. Pâté and crackers?"

"Yes, thank you."

"Still, he might respond to threats, and he'll be all kinds of fun to manipulate. Morgan, on the other hand, reminds me of myself: suave and charismatic, appreciates the finer things… But the boy has no initiative. He's lazy and dim, a pretty shell just like his mother. The opportunity for power might finally light a fire under him, but it's too soon to tell. I'd hate to have to wait for a new harvest again. I do have a few girls in the mix, of course, but I'm a traditionalist at heart."

"This chianti is a revelation."

"Bite your tongue, Azazel! Good, though, isn't it? I have a vintner here from Tuscany; poor bastard loved his grapes and his gold a little too much."

"Weren't there a few others in the running? A boy in South America and one in the Middle East?"

"Hmmm, yes. One became a priest of all things, very disappointing, and the other… died on the vine, so to speak."

"Ah. Fatal illness?"

"More a Son of Sam situation. Too far gone to reach anymore."

"Pity."

"So when's the showdown between your Sam and Jake?"

"Just a few more hours. I'm going to throw them at each other and see who survives. Sam's brother is still out there trying to throw a wrench into the works, but I doubt he'll make it in time."

"And his father's here, of course."

"Still holding out against Alistair?"

"The man's tough, Azazel. If only he were one of my own—think what I could accomplish with John Winchester to help run the show!"

"He certainly gave me a run for my money."

"Yes, I know. But back to your finale: why that particular spot in Wyoming? Not planning anything subversive there, are we? I like to keep the gates closed, keep the souls inside where they belong."

"No, no—just making it hard for Dean Winchester to find it, and anything else that might interfere."

"I see… Well, I look forward to your report on the whole situation. Send it through Jezebel, she turns things around fairly fast."

"Will do. Thanks for the refreshments."

"Going so soon? I've got music—Beethoven symphonies, Blue Öyster Cult, or the souls of the damned from Level Three."

"That's very gracious of you. Another time, perhaps—I need to prepare Sam and Jake."

"If you're certain. Good luck to you, Azazel."

"Thank you, sir."

"You're going to need it."

LMAO, this is awesome! I can see this happening for some reason! XDD

:D It's tough crossing these universes over, because their versions of Hell are so different. But this situation limits them enough that you can imagine them being the same. And Azazel opening the Hell Gate is the kind of initiative the Reaper Devil is not going to appreciate. ;)
peeps wanna see peeps boink: deathmusesfool on April 28th, 2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
Heh. No, I can't see Reaper's Devil appreciating Azazel's endgame, whatever it is.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 28th, 2009 08:13 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure what his endgame was either, though leading the demon army sounds suspicious (Hell already has a leader in the Reaper-verse!), and then there's letting all those souls escape, which we know vexes the Reaper Devil no end. ;)

Hee! You're probably one of the few people on my f-list who can appreciate it, too. You've got to have a good understanding of the Reaper-universe for this one to make sense, I think.

Azazel is going to get it. Unless Dean's vanquishing him saved him from any form of existence at all. :0

All those escaped souls to be processed! At least she doesn't handle the paperwork-- what a nightmare that'll be!

Hee! I even used your Chianti to good advantage. Thanks for the prompt!

ROTFL, oh man, I can just picture this conversation. So good!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 28th, 2009 11:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm glad there are other people who enjoy both of these shows-- they're so incredibly different, but at the same time two cracktastic schemers like Azazel and the Reaper Devil really should meet. :D

This could not have been more perfect. Awesome job! Your characterization of the Devil and Azazel are spot-on. :D
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 28th, 2009 11:37 pm (UTC)
I'm glad they both felt true to form. They have different vocal styles, despite that relentless cheer they both share, and they're both surprisingly fun to write. I've done the Reaper Devil for a Reaper story before, but never Azazel. He's got such a game-show host feel to him. :D

This was a fantastic crossover! I love the idea of these two characters sitting down over wine to compare their "special children". Also, I thought it worked beautifully as just dialogue -- Azazel and the Devil are the kind of characters that don't really need any narration to complement them.

And, wow, the Devil is going to be furious when he discovers Azazel was lying to his face about his plans to open the Devil's Gate! *lol*

It's funny when you think of them both having those projects going, especially because their two universes don't really overlap at all. But there's a certain kind of evil glee in putting them together and watching what blows up.

In this case, Azazel's plan is NOT going to make the Reaper Devil happy! So many souls to track down and put back in Hell-- he'll have bounty hunters working day and night!

BWAHAHA!

So deliciously evil!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 29th, 2009 12:09 am (UTC)
Poor Azazel, thinking that the Devil doesn't know what he's actually up to. Why does everyone make that mistake? :0
Rosegestaltrose on April 29th, 2009 04:04 am (UTC)
you are completely awesome, this is wonderful...

Heee!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 29th, 2009 05:43 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! The Drabble Meme wins again-- you never know what it'll kick off. \o/

This was great.

...And now I'm imagining a great apocalyptic showdown in Supernatural with Ray Wise. And Sam Oliver, Anti-Christ.
Hopefully I'll manage to get the giggling under control before I suffocate.

(I was happy to see this, 'cause there needs to be more reaper fic in the world. )
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 29th, 2009 05:46 am (UTC)
Ray Wise, who can jerk people around even better than the YED, and Sam Oliver who really just wants to be left alone and is more of the Anti-Anti-Christ. He and Sam Winchester could commiserate over other people trying to decide their destinies, and what's so wrong with just wanting to be good anyway? Why do they both have to keep apologizing for it?!? :D

I loved this and could so see it. And the one time I put John in Satan's domain he wrecked the place LOL.

Thank you!

the one time I put John in Satan's domain he wrecked the place LOL

As he would, of course. He'd feel obligated too! Just because you're in Hell doesn't mean it's time to give up your former calling, especially if you're John Winchester. ;)

*cackles madly* I've wanted to see a crossover of these two shows for a while. Don't know how I missed this the first time through. :p

Your Devil voice is just spot on. Too hilarious. XD
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Random Fandomhalfshellvenus on September 9th, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC)
People always want the SPN/Reaper crossover, and I find them hard because the "Hell" constructs are so very different in them.

Although the request for this specific pairing somehow really lent itself to poking fun at what Azazel was up to and how "higher management" might have felt about it. And god, the Reaper Devil is so cracktastically funny!

If you click the "reaper" tag above, you'll find the other SPN/Reaper fic I wrote, and also the longer Reaper "casefic." That last one has lots of appearances by the Devil, because honestly, he and Sock are the most fun to write!

Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
Mark Hunter: Thumbs Up Spikeozma914 on April 15th, 2011 06:46 pm (UTC)
Excellent! You melded them very well.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Supernaturalhalfshellvenus on April 15th, 2011 06:56 pm (UTC)
:D Thank you!

Back when SPN S2 first aired, there was this sense that nobody was really "running" Hell, and that the YED had some scheme of his own going. (I actually preferred the pre-S4 version of SPN's universe, for many reasons)

But if you add the Reaper Devil into the mix, then the YED's plan looks like revolt, or at the least... letting all of those souls out of Hell that the Devil has Sam and others working to put back in.

Which means that Azazael is in deep, deep trouble. And as we've seen, the Reaper Devil always knows everything. ;)

Thanks for reading!
