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! ;)

Terminal Burrowing (1/2)
John had never raised a hand to his boys in anger. Sparring, sure, he'd clipped both of them. But always, always only hard enough to make his point. He'd put Dean over his knee once, when he was maybe six, after finding him playing with a box of powder. If he scared Dean half as much as Dean scared him, they were square. But now, right now, John thought maybe he was just angry enough to hit Dean in earnest, give him something to think about.

Just as soon as he could find him.

John had already killed the damn thing, a local spirit with a taste for dogs. The dead Ponderosa pine was salted, burned, and spat on. Disgusted, but satisfied, he'd driven back to the motel, where his son was supposed to be waiting. Lying low. Taking it easy. Putting his feet up. Trying not to hack up a lung.

But no, no apparently that was too much to ask from Dean. John clenched and unclenched his fists, pushed on the gas. He just didn't get what the problem was. They went to Palo Alto, pretty regular now. So he didn't call them, wouldn't call them. That was what it was. Dean just needed to make his peace with it. John thought he had.

He almost passed the Impala, parked on the side of of the I-90 access road. The truck fishtailed for a few exciting seconds before John got control back. He parked, pulled the hand brake, and checked his phone: no service. The wind was kicking up, and it smelled like snow. On second thought, he grabbed his toque before he got out of the truck. The are had seen a lot of snow this winter, but none in the last week.

Dean couldn't be far. That was all John allowed himself to think about, as the promised snow arrived, disguising his son's tracks. But Dean couldn't be far. John checked his watch. He didn't know when Dean left the motel, but he was looking at up to three hours of exposure here. But Dean couldn't be that far. And he wasn't really that sick. Just needed to put his feet up for a while.

John growled and dug his hands deeper into his pockets. The snow was falling faster now, and the wind was pushing along behind it. The clock was ticking. The tracks were getting more confused now. At one point, they turned back on themselves in a circle, before continuing on. John filed away that information, made it useful before he could really think about it. And then the tracks stopped.

There was nobody here.

"Dean!" John screamed, turning in a circle. This was sparsely wooded area, trees but not enough to hide a man. He kept yelling, though, until he decided it wasn't working. Time to get smarter, Winchester. Inside his gloves, he cracked his knuckles. They popped slower in the colder weather, but louder.

Reminded of something one of the field docs had told him one time, while they sewed his leg back together. Guy was an old, crusty chain smoker, had seen a lot of duty. Guy said in Korea, in the winter, it got so cold that the ground froze to depth of the land mines, contracting, and setting them off. Guy said you had to keep an eye on your buddies in that kind of cold. A GI could wander off, and get cold enough that...

The tracks stopped here. John straightened up, looking not at the trees, but at the ground. He lunged towards the nearest tree well, pulling away snow and frosted brush. Nothing. The next three wells went the same way. John found his son in the fifth. He had him out in a minute, on the outside.

"Dean." He brushed the snow off Dean's face. Kid's lips were just faintly blue. Could be worse. "Hey. I'm talking to you, here."

"The hell?" Dean swiped at him clumsily, coughed. "Go 'way."

"Rise and shine." John reached down and roughly cleared Dean's clothes of snow. They were pretty dry, just frosted, which was another mark in their column. John tousled his son's hair, removed his own toque, and pulled it down over Dean's ears.

"Fuck. Off." Dean squirmed under his hands, the ineffectual movements of the hypothermic. He turned his head away, coughed again, wet and rough.

"Not likely," John said grimly. "Look at me. Dean. Look at me."

Dean looked at him and, John hoped to God, some part of him was listening.

"Pull it. Together."

"Dad?" Dean croaked.

"Get up. We're going now. Get up, Dean."

He got Dean vertical, supporting most of his weight, but Dean was moving under at least some of his own power. They'd made it maybe ten yards before Dean's legs buckled. He caught him, on the way down, but Dean was clearly not walking out of here. His son was kneeling, one hand over his chest, and coughing with the kind of deep, crackling noise that could mean only one thing.

"Okay. Okay, then."

It had been a long time since John practiced his fireman's carry, but it did the trick. He got them to the truck, got Dean into the passenger's side, and reassessed. Dean was awake, breathing, and shivering now. All very good signs.

John started up the truck, closed the vents, turned up the heat and waited for the engine to catch up. "You with me?"

Dean nodded, breathing shallowly. John fished around, found a cup of cold coffee, and offered it to him. Even with both hands, Dean spilled on himself. Lips were still blue.

"I'm gonna wait until we get back to Wright. Then I'm gonna make the call."

His son nodded, turned towards the window, and hunched over on himself, coughing like it was going to break him in two. John opened the air vents and put the truck in gear, settling on hand on the wheel and the other on Dean's back. It was instinct, nothing else, but he kept his hand on Dean's back.

Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
Wright came up fast, but Dean was shivering harder, the blue was leaving his lips. John didn't like the cough. Didn't like it at all. But it wasn't bad enough. Yet. He made the turnoff for the motel and saw Dean visibly relax when he realized they weren't headed to the hospital.

"Don't get too excited," John said. "You don't look better in an hour, I will put your ass in that ER so fast it'll make your head spin. Understood?"

Dean nodded. He tried to get out the cab by himself, and almost went face first into the snowy parking lot. John cussed, slammed his door, and walked around the hood to haul Dean to his feet.

"Sorry," Dean muttered.

"Don't. Don't even start."

John slammed the motel door behind them with enough force to knock the room number off. He all but threw Dean onto the bed. For a moment, all he could do was stand there and dig his nails into the palms of his hand. Then he locked the door behind them, cranked up the heat, and stalked into the bathroom to turn the shower on as hot as it would go.

Dean was still curled up, knees to chest, shivering and fighting for breath. John pulled out some clean clothes from his duffel: sweats, t-shirt, and wool socks. He put them on the bathroom cabinet. He tried to meet Dean's eyes again, but it only made it worse.

"Go. Change. Sit. Breathe."

Dean did.

John walked around the room, ostensibly straightening things, but really just trying to cool off. He broke one of the plastic chairs and felt a lot better for it. Good. Dean was still coughing, and it was still bad, but it wasn't getting any worse. Another mark in their column.

There were some space blankets in the truck, the insulated foil kind. John opened the door to go get some, and Dean appeared in the bathroom doorway.

"Wherygoin'?" he rasped, leaning heavily on the frame.

"Just getting the blankets."

"Oh. 'Kay."

"Sit. Breathe."

By the time the hot water ran out, John had turned the bed by the heater into a cocoon. Space blanket, motel sheets, army surplus blanket, Indian blanket, spare bedspread from the closet. Dean lifted an eyebrow, but didn't say a word. His lips were back to almost pink-ish now. John pointed at the bed.

"In."

Dean got in, shivering hard enough that John felt himself relax. Just a fraction. John put the toque back on him. Dean didn't say anything. Just turned and coughed into the pillow so hard it seemed like he might snap in half.

"You gonna tell me what this was all about?" John asked quietly, when Dean could talk again.

"Y-you forg-got the silver."

"What?"

"The b-bullets, Dad. The ammo."

John stared at him, like he'd just told him one plus one was a brass band.

"T-thought it was old s-school. Needs bullets"

"You followed me. Into bumblefuck, Montana. In the snow. With what I think we both now know is pneumonia. Because you thought I brought the wrong ammo."

Dean froze. He already knew there wasn't a right answer. John wasn't sure there was any kind of answer at all. He wasn't even sure..

"Dean. You are a fucking piece of work."

Dean nodded.

"And tomorrow morning, we're gonna go get your car. And then I'm gonna follow your sorry ass all the way to Bobby's."

Dean frowned, opened his mouth to protest, but all the came out was a nasty, wet hacking noise. He caught his breath, clearly annoyed, and looked at John again.

"Because you look like shit, that's why. Because I'm still not sure you don't need a hospital and we're between cards and we can't afford to lay up here--and I swear to God, if you tell me you can sleep in the Impala, I will knock you into the middle of next month so help me."

"'Kay."

"Good. Shut up. Sleep. I'll wake you up in a few hours to get your temp."

"I didn't--"

"Dean. Sleep."

Dean nodded.

Awwww - loved it!
Dean being soooo Dean-ish and following John because of AMMO!
John rocked being all gruffy but really worried and undecided if he wants to kick Dean's ass or maybe hug him (he totally wanted to!).
Veeery neat. Love this prompt so incredibly much. ;)

Re: Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
Any story that includes a fireman carry is a \0/WIN for me! And any story that includes concerned!(notbastard)John is \0/\0/

I loved John's thought process all throughout and the descriptions of Dean's illness. Every time he coughed my chest ached in sympathy. I love that Dean went out there in the first place because he thought Dad needed silver bullets. Oh Dean!!

Re: Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
Oh, excellent! You captured John's frustrated love for his son perfectly. The whole my-boy-has-done-a-stupid-risky-thing-again-but-my-god-I-love-him-for-it thing. No schmoop, just gruff care John Winchester style, to the point of taking Dean to Bobby's for a breather. :)

Re: Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
Aaaaawwwww. It makes me laugh how John's way of expressing affectionate worry is to threaten to knock his wee sick boy into t he middle of next month! Very cute.

Re: Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
I love the way that John loves Dean. It is so evident and so very John-like. And Dean loves Dad enough to chase him down with ammo. Great, great job. I also love John's conversations. "Sleep. Breathe. Shut up." God, that cracks me up!! Can't say he is a wordy bastard eh?

Re: Terminal Burrowing (3/3)
John shouldn't be pissed at Dean, cause he'd have done the same thing if he was the sick one and thought Dean didn't take the right ammo. Great reason for Dean to wander off into the woods. Very Winchester. Love pissed off cause he loves his boys so much John.
