This Burden
It was bad enough when he thought they were only nightmares. The things he sees—all so dangerous and disturbing, so horrifying and hopeless—these should not be part of anyone’s actual world.

Except that they’re too much like what he already knows, like that secret evil that drives his family into pursuit.

Reality is slower, cleaner. Less jumbled in action and sequence. But even so, that doesn’t mean it’s always easier to control.

So many things destined, possible, and past all converge in his head. So where is the part where he finally gets to have the upper hand?


Crossing Over
There is no peace when the dead return again. Their presence breaks a pact with the living world.

They haunt. They consume. Some seek to destroy. To become.

They rarely go unnoticed. They make bones tingle, and can freeze a heart— a thought—without the slightest little touch.

Dean sees them. And John can smell them or hear them in a blue-moon while.

But for Sam, it can be all of that or something even more.

Every so often, it’s more than simply seeing. At the worst times, the evil falls into a place Sam’s been carrying in his head.
