Hurt/Comfort-Meme  
A while ago, I promised you a comment-fic-meme as soon as we reached 100 members. And here it is!

Teh Rulez
01. Comment to this post with your prompt and desired pairing(s). Be as specific or unspecific as you like.
For example: "Sam, Dean (gen): hypothermia" or "Jared/Jensen: Jared gets hurt on set, Rating: at least R" or "Dean/Castiel: Castiel comforts Dean after a nightmare"
If you are unsure about a certain pairing or prompt, please go to our profile and read the general rules or ask in our FAQs
02. Post as many prompts as you like - but one prompt per comment only, please!
03. If you find a prompt that strikes your fancy, jump in and write some comment fic for the prompt poster
04. More than one comment fic response to a prompt is absolutely acceptable. (There is no such thing as too much hurt/comfort!)
05. Tell your friends to tell their friends to come and join the fun, add a prompt, write a fic and leave some love for the authors! ^___^
06. Play nice - no flames, no bashing is allowed here! If I see a rude comment to a prompt or a fic repsonse, I'll delete it without further warning.
07. Please no spam-comments and please don't ask questions about the meme here - use the FAQs-post. =)

And most important of all: Have lots of fun - make them bleed, make them cry, make them argue and most of all: let them hug and cuddle to make it all better! ;)

Dean, Castiel (gen) - Little!Dean gets hurt somehow and his "guardian angel" Castiel comforts him.
maychorian: Detective Casmaychorian on April 13th, 2009 03:12 am (UTC)
Part 1/2
Dean sat still, his back against the clammy dirt wall, and just tried to breathe. The air down here was stuffy, too warm, despite the coolness of the earth all around him. Harsh light filtered down from the cracked and broken boards twenty feet above his head, but when he looked up all he saw was a patch of sky so bright that it made his eyes water.

The space was too small. Just a shaft sunk into the earth for no purpose Dean could understand, but then, what did he know? He was only eight. Grown-ups did crazy things, sometimes. Like digging holes in empty lots and then covering them up with rotted boards.

He'd been playing with Sammy, that was all. This was going to be the perfect spot to hide, behind a dumpster, around a pile of rusted metal barrels. Sammy had still been calling "Thwee...fo'...five..." when Dean crouched down here, then heard creaking wood just as the ground dropped out from beneath his feet, taking his stomach with it, and then the rest of him.

His leg hurt. He had tried to claw his way out, but the dirt slipped and slid under his fingers, and he just kept falling to the bottom again and again, and his left calf throbbed and burned and hurt. Tears stung Dean's eyes, and he rubbed them away with a grubby fist, sniffing, angry with himself for getting all slobby. He wasn't a baby. He wouldn't cry, he wouldn't.

"Dean? Dean?"

Sam's voice was high and clear, sometimes closer, sometimes farther away. Dean kept trying to yell to him, tell him to go get Dad, but his throat was hot and tight and all that came out was a hoarse rasp like rusty nails scraping on metal. The air was just too hot and bright and stale, and he couldn't get enough of it, and he was scared, even though he shouldn't be, because he wasn't a baby, he wasn't, but he was scared anyway and his leg hurt and it was so hard to breathe....

"Dean? Dean! Where aw you? I gib up! Come out now, Dean!"

"Sammy." Dean gasped again, but even he could barely hear himself. "Sammy."

The four-year-old's voice abruptly turned petulant. His temper was shorter and shorter, lately, but this was the first time Dean had been glad about it. Because now Sam yelled, "Okay den, you big meanie-head! I'm getting Daddy! He'll find you!"

Dean was glad, he was. But as soon as Sam's voice disappeared into the distance, still whining forcefully about how mean Dean was, the air started getting even harder to breathe. It was thick, choking him, and he was so hot, and the space was too small, and the fear was too enormous, suffocating him, drowning him, and he hated being alone, he hated it.

"Dean."

It was an adult's voice, way too close, too strange. Dean gave a strangled gasp and started back, banging his head into the dirt, his leg throbbing with the jolt. He had to blink to clear away the white-red spots in his eyes, and then he gasped again, heart lurching in terror.

A strange man knelt in the narrow space with him, big and strong, wearing a long tan coat despite the cloying heat. He had dark hair and a smooth face, and he stared at Dean with round eyes, pinning him to the wall, intense and focused and strange.

"Dean," he said again, and his voice was calm and soothing, a rope to grab onto with both hands and cling to for dear life.

Dean did.

A stranger. Strangers were dangerous. Dad said to watch out for strangers. It gave Dean something to think about besides how hot and scared and hurt he was, having this threat to focus on. He glared at the man, flicking his eyes derisively over his long coat and business clothes, so unsuitable for crouching in a hole in the height of summer.

"Go away," Dean said, his voice choked, barely audible. "I'm not supposed to talk to strangers."

The guy blinked at him, once, long and slow. "You don't know me now," he said calmly, "but you will someday. I am here to help you, Dean Winchester."

"Don't need your help." Dean shifted against the wall and tried to draw his aching leg closer to his body, away from the stranger. It hurt too much, though, and he gasped and went still, leaning his head back, eyes closing involuntarily.

For what seemed like a very long time, he just sat there, trying to breathe. Then he felt a large, cool palm on his forehead, and forced his eyes open, eyelashes fluttering. The man was kneeling next to him, now, concerned eyes so close and large that Dean tried to flinch back again, but couldn't do more than rock his head slightly to the side. The hand on his forehead followed the movement easily, dry and soft, the hand of a man who had never held a gun or a knife, never slit a throat or burned a monstrous corpse.

"You need to relax," the gentle voice said, still so calm, so soothing. "There is sufficient air here. You can breathe. Slow down and take the air in calmly. Your fear is causing a physical reaction, and you must control it."

It sounded true. It sounded like something Dad would say. Dean tried to obey, tried to slow his breathing, tried to believe that there was plenty of air and he was going to be okay. His breath still rasped in his tight throat, though, no matter how he tried, and still all he felt was the brightness and the heat and the tight space around him.

"Listen to my breath, Dean," the man said. His voice didn't change at all, still the same even tone, the same cool intonation. "Listen to how it moves in and out of my lungs. Follow me in this, if you will follow me in nothing else. Just this."

Dean closed his eyes and listened to the stranger's steady breaths, in and out, in and out. He filled his world with that sound, only that sound, felt the slight shifts of the hand on his forehead moving with the rise and fall of the man's chest. After a time the guy moved his hand down to Dean's chest, pressing gently, the weight of his hand a comfort and not a burden, pulsing steadily up and down in easy rhythm. Before Dean quite knew what was going on, his breath had matched that of his companion.

His throat had opened, too, and the air still felt hot and stuffy and stale, but he could breathe, he could breathe, the dizziness and nausea receding to the back of his mind. He opened his eyes and found the man still kneeling far too close, looking into Dean's face. His eyes were like an ocean.

"Who are you?" Dean murmured, suddenly exhausted, but burning with the need to know.

"A friend," the man said. "You don't know me yet."

"But I will someday?"

"Yes." He sat back, removing his hand from Dean's chest slowly, almost reluctantly. "Twenty-two years from now you will dream about this night, and I will know, and I will not be able to prevent myself from doing something about it. Time is fluid, and sometimes it can be bent. This thing was small enough to allow it, though I am pushing my boundaries by being here."

"Will you stay?"

He tilted his head slightly to the side, eyeing Dean with a gentle regard. "Do you want me to?"

"Yeah." Dean sighed and let his eyes fall shut again, tired and hurting, but no longer afraid. This man didn't feel like a stranger, not anymore. "Please? Until my dad comes."

"Very well. Until then."

Fabric rustled, and Dean opened one eye long enough to see the man fold himself into a cross-legged position next to Dean, leaning against the cold dirt and staring peacefully into nothing. He radiated such calm, such certainty, that there was no room left for fear of any kind.

Later they would tell Dean that he had hallucinated the whole thing, and that was why the kind man vanished the moment he heard voices above, his father's desperate, angry growl and the urgent calls of rescuers. He would forget it completely, never think of it again, and twenty-two years later, he would never have that instigating nightmare. And so no one in the cosmos would ever know.

No one except one quiet, powerful supernatural creature who would never breathe a word of it to anyone, that was. Because yes, time was fluid, but he had overstepped his boundaries, and there was no need to advertise the fact if he could avoid it. Better to leave this one as it was.

C is for Cookie (Part 1/3)
"Sammy!" Dean called in a panic, running from rack to rack in the kids section of Sears. It was funny for the first five minutes - imaging humongous Sam freaking out in the mall, trying to find him. Then he actually lost sight of Sammy. His gut was twisting in a knot, and his eyes were starting to burn. He shut up and hid when the sales lady headed over. They didn't need anybody snooping in their business.

He watched her from inside a rounded carousel of jeans and tried to calm down. Rationally, Sam would find him. Sam was smart, and Sears was the last place he laid eyes on Dean. He'd come back here soon. Unfortunately, rational didn't apply when you were cursed into being your six-year-old self again. He remembered some of being big, but stuff was missing - like what he looked like big or how to drive. Trying to scoot back, Dean sliced his knee on the rack's metal foot.

"Ow!" He whimpered, sitting on the floor and hugging his knee. His hands shook as he squeezed his knee around the cut. It wasn't what he was supposed to do. He should be putting pressure on it, but it hurt. He didn't want to touch it, and these were new pants. Sammy was always kind of mad when he ruined new stuff. It wasn't his fault though.

Dean sucked in little sharp breaths, trying to calm down. He was scared like he hadn't been since he was really a kid. He wanted Sam. Well, he wanted DAD, but that wasn't happening.

Oh crap. Dean put both hands over his mouth to hold in his sobs. He was hurt and scared and he wanted DAD. He wanted DADDY now, but Daddy was dead. Dead and gone like Mommy and he wasn't supposed to be little. He wanted to be big and huge and not crying in a clothing rack at Sears.

"Dean?"

Startled, Dean turned fast and banged his head on the rack's center pole. "Oh!" Tears started pouring in earnest again and Dean didn't really think about anything but how much his head hurt for a second. Then he saw familiar blue, blue eyes.

"CAS!" Dean launched himself into the crouching angel's arms. He buried his face in the dark suit and cried even harder.

Uncertain warm arms closed around him. "Dean, what happened?" Castiel was holding his head against his chest, petting his hair.

"I lost Sammy." Dean sniffled. "And I cut my knee." He showed his bleeding kneecap and felt like such a little baby for it.

"You are a child," Castiel whispered, still holding on tight. The awe in his voice was kind of funny.

"No, shit," Dean muttered, still trying to sniffle up the surge of tears and snot. He wasn't so scared anymore. A large hand closed over his knee to stop the bleeding. "Ow."

"Shh," Cas murmured. After a moment, the stinging subsided a little. It wasn't angel magic - just the comfort of something warm on the cut.

Pushing his head against the warm chest under his temple, Dean curled his hands in the edges of Cas's trench coat. "I don't wanna be lost anymore."

Cas cocked his head in that weird way he always did. "You aren't lost, Dean. I have you."

Dean nodded, feeling pathetic somewhere in what was left of his adult mind, but the kid part was getting stronger, and it wanted to feel safe. "I was so scared. I was gonna scare Sammy, but then he was gone."

Cas didn't answer. He just kept petting Dean's hair, looking confused when Dean looked up at him. "You're supposed to tell me it's okay. That Sammy's coming back."

"You are safe, and I am certain he is looking for you," Castiel answered simply.

A chime over the intercom startled Dean. "Code Adam. Code Adam."

"That's us," Dean wiped his nose on his sleeve and gave Cas an expectant look.

"Your name is not Adam."

"It's a CODE. It's what stores do when there's a missing kid. They lock all the doors and don't let anybody leave till they find it."

Cas's hand moved from his knee and wrapped under his legs, as the angel stood with Dean held close. "It's cause people steal kids sometimes," Dean added, wondering what the angel knew about strangers and other stuff.

"SIR!" the nosy saleslady was bustling over on crazy high heels.

"Those shoes're gonna break," Dean whispered to Cas. He didn't know how they were managing to stay up anyway. She was like a landwhale.

"SIR! I need you stop," she was panting by the time she got to them.

Castiel looked down his nose at the woman - probably about to start in on the 'Angel of the Lord' speech.

"He's my other-daddy." Dean told her helpfully. Sam was his Dad - that was their story for now to keep things simple with strangers, but his adult brain could still have fun. "He found me."

Even at six, he could make a grown woman sigh. She gave him a fond smile. "Well, I need you two to come with me. You're father's looking for you."

Sam was pacing a two-foot square when Dean spotted him. He kicked his feet, but obviously, angels didn't know the international kid-body language for 'put me down. I wanna run.' Cas held him a little tighter. "Papa!"

Sam's head snapped around at his voice, and the relief on his face mirrored Dean's own. "Dean!" He didn't blink at the fact that Cas was holding Dean; it didn't seem to register. Instead, Sam galloped over and scooped Dean up out of Cas's arms.

Dean hugged Sam's neck so tight his arms hurt. Sam gave him a crushing squeeze as the store manager announced that the Code Adam was over. Cas was still staring at Dean.

"Thank you," Sam was gushing at the storelady, shaking her hand.

"Oh your -um partner found him." Dean snickered against Sammy's neck.

"My -uh," Sam gave Dean a little bounce. "Yeah, great. Cas? We should um...get lunch. Dean's probably hungry."

"Yes," Cas was still staring. Dean hid against Sammy's neck, grinning ear to ear.

Sam didn't let Dean go until they were sliding into a booth at the 'Johnny Rockets' in the mall. Dean huffed at not getting to sit on the aisle side, but Sam ordered him a chocolate shake and burger so he'd let it go.

Cas was still staring. "Dude! Take a picture!"

Cas blinked, "What happened?"

Sam sighed. "We took a witch down two towns over. He threw this dust on Dean."

"It stank like burning rubber," Dean put in. He dug in Sam's coat pocket and found a nickel. "Score!"

"We found the spell in his books. Dean'll be well big again in another month."

Dean was loading the coin in the tabletop jukebox and searched the little paper song list. "Dude, this music is crap!

The waitress - all of sixteen - gave him a surprised look as she sat down his milkshake and Sam's soda. Dean didn't notice, crowing, "Hey! Skynard!"

He pushed the buttons noisily as Sam gave the girl an apologetic smile. "Thanks."

"Nothing for you sir?" She asked Castiel with a little frown.

"No," Cas didn't look away from Dean - fascinated. Sam edged a little closer to Dean, suddenly uncomfortable with the scrutiny.

"Cas?"

"He is himself, but...not. It is strange."

"Hey, right here," Dean leaned on the table, waving a hand in Cas's face. Then he noticed the milkshake. "Ooo!"

Sam laughed at that and put a hand in Dean's hair. "Slow or you'll get brain freeze."

"YOU'LL get brain freeze," Dean snickered. He gave Sam a beaming smile around his straw and giggled - honest to God - giggled. It was the most adorable thing Sam had ever heard from his brother.

"You are different."

Dean rolled his little eyes at Cas. "Du-uh. I'm SIX!"

A couple of women in another booth made little cooing noises and smiled adoringly at Sam and Dean. Sam blushed, and was surprised when Dean slinked back down in the booth, half-hiding against his arm.

Cas turned to look at the women. They turned back to their own meals under his intense gaze quickly, like he'd given them a dirty look. When he turned back to Dean, he had the same expression he always had. "They are not a threat."

"I know. I'm not scared." Dean bluffed, still tucked against Sam's side. Sam put his arm down around Dean's back and hugged a little. That's when he saw the dark gash on Dean's knee.

"Hey, what happened?"

"I banged my knee on the jeans rack." Dean pulled his foot up in the seat so Sam could look at his kneecap. "Cas made it better."

Sam glanced over, but the angel was still just staring at Dean like he was the most fascinating thing on the planet. "Yeah?" He dug in his messenger bag and pulled out their basic first aid kit.

"It hurts," Dean told him, tugging on his pants leg a little.

Their food came while he was wiping off the wound and putting tape on it. The waitress saw the bandage as she put the plates down. "Uh-oh. What happened?"

"He cut his knee," Sam answered when it became apparent Dean wouldn't. He kind of expected Dean to be a little attention-whore just to mess with Sam, but Dean was getting increasingly shy, hiding against Sam when anyone looked at him too long. It reminded him of when they were kids, and Dean went out of his way to avoid attention from anyone that wasn't Dad.

"Oh," She smiled at Dean. "Do you need anything else?"

"No, we're good," Sam told her with a small smile. He patted Dean's thigh just above his knee. "Eat, shorty."

"I'm not a shorty!" Dean growled, rubbing his knuckles in his eye. Being a kid again meant Dean got cranky, but now Sam could make him take naps. He ruffled Dean's hair and let his brother lean against his side as he gobbled his fries.

Castiel stared at him with his overly intense eyes. "I must receive Revelation."

"Um... okay," Sam nodded, letting his hand slide down Dean's back.

"But you're gonna come back, right?" Dean sat up, his little face sharp with worry.

"Yes," Cas's head cocked sideways. "As soon as I am allowed."

Dean smiled a little and started on his burger - needing both hands to pick it up. "Okay, See you!"

Sam grinned down at Dean, and felt a rush of air as Cas vanished. He looked around, worried someone might have seen, but no one took any notice. He sighed and turned back to his brother. Dean was chewing heartily on his bite of burger, making familiar humming noises.

Half a shake and less than a quarter of the burger later Dean was nodding off with ketchup on his left cheek. Sam wiped it off and smiled when their waitress stopped by again. "Anything else?"

"Just the check and a box?"

She reached out and took their plates. "I'll box it and be right back."

"Thank you," Sam grinned. She was fast enough that he added another five to the tip. If they could get a waitress like her everywhere, adult Dean would die with a smile on his face.

It was a little complicated to carry tiny Dean and the shopping bags with his new kid-sized clothes, but people kept opening doors or stepping aside to let him through. Other parents gave him knowing smiles that made Sam feel like the best little-big brother ever.
