Word count: ~ 24,000
Summary: When John Winchester is possessed by the yellow-eyed demon and asks his son to kill him, Sam does so and disappears, leaving his injured brother behind in a hospital. As a result of the demon's early death deals are never made and a lot of bad things never happen - but Dean doesn't know that. All he knows is that Sam killed his father and abandoned him.
Looking for answers, Dean chases his brother all through the United States while Sam solves cases he couldn't possibly know about and always remains one step ahead. When Dean finally catches up with him, the answers he gets are not the ones he expected and it looks like no matter what he does, he's only going to lose Sam in the end.

As always, I have to thank my fantastic beta nightrider101 who made this story a lot better than I could have done on my own. The remaining mistakes are my own and most likely to be found in sequences I added after she had done her magic. Also, there are points where I simply ignored her advice, but that doesn't happen often because I know she knows better than me!
And of course, a lot of thanks goes to quickreaver, my more-than-awesome artist. When I saw she had picked my story I spend half an hour flailing. And I was even more happy after getting in contact with her and finding out what a wonderful person she is. Not only did she do a lot more than the challenge demanded, she also gave me precious advice for my own art. And all that aside: just look at the pictures she created! Aren't they among the best pieces of art you have ever seen?
Last but not least I want to thank reapertownusa without whom this big bang wouldn't have come to be.
