Beta: nightrider101
Artist: quickreaver
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Dean, Sam, Castiel, Bobby
Rating: PG

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.
Note: Written for the spn_gen_bigbang.

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.

I like this story a lot. At first I couldn't figure out why Sam was running from Dean and it was really frustrating. When the answer was revealed it made a lot of sense. Poor Sam was so tired the entire time. When he cried the last time (when he saw the amulet), it broke my heart. I love what you did with the details. How Sam always tried to keep quiet, even when he was crying. He was really fading away, physically, emotionally, and even his voice started to fade. Poor guy! Also love how Dean could comfort Sam in his sleep. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and oddly reassured. And thank you for bringing back the amulet! How Sam held on to the amulet, it is beautiful. In my mind, they still have the best time ahead of them, on earth or in heaven. It is too bad that they wasted three years, but it is nothing comparing to eternity, right?

Thank you for the beautiful story that made me so frustrated at the beginning but gave me a wonderful closure.

Thank you so much for your comment. I'm happy you liked it and stuck with it even though it was frustrating in the beginning.

And you're right: the best is still to come for them.
