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! ;)

I think I'm going to attempt this... it's been bouncing around in my head for a few days. Like everyone else on here, I'm a bit swamped at the moment, but I'm about half finished with the fic (I think).

Sorry this took so long. I hope this comment-fic stuff is still going on and that this is ok.

Part 1

John uncurled from his hunched position at the table when Sammy walked toward him in his pajamas. Already eight years old, almost nine. John couldn't believe he had lived that long without Mary; knew that he wouldn't have if not for his boys.

"Hey, Sammy. Why aren't you sleeping?" John asked softly. Sometimes a sleepy Sammy was easy to lead back to bed if it was quiet.

"When is Dean coming home?" Sammy asked instead.

John sighed. They'd been over this umpteen times already, but he found it difficult to be angry when he was proud of the relationship between his sons. This was the first time little Sammy had been without his brother for more than a day.

"We're picking him up from Pastor Jim's on Saturday, remember? That's only three more days."

Sammy rubbed his eye with the back of his hand and had a pout on his face as he replied, "Yeah." Small, dirty hands falling to the hem of the large t-shirt that Dean would never have let his little brother wear, Sam whispered, "I miss him."

"Come here, buddy," John said past a tight throat and opened his arms. Sam readily accepted the invitation and crawled up on John's lap. John frowned at the warmth he felt, "Are you feeling ok, Sammy?"

Sam shook his head, tucked in close to John's neck.

"What's wrong?"

"Don't feel good," Sam mumbled.

John rolled his eyes at the unhelpful answer and rubbed Sam's back. "What doesn't feel good?"

Sam sniffed and wiped his eyes and nose on John's shirt. "Throat, head, everything. Hurts when I swallow and talk."

"All right. You'll be ok. Let's get you back to bed."

Sam pouted, but didn't seem to have the energy to make much of a fuss as his dad carried him to the room that the boys shared. John arranged the blankets and pillows so they seemed comfortable and turned to leave the room.

"Daddy?" Sam called in a small voice he hadn't used in a few years.

"What is it, kiddo?"

"Dean stays with me until I fall asleep when I'm sick."

John couldn't help but think that Dean stayed with him every night, regardless, but that wasn't the point. He settled on the side of the bed and Sam rolled onto his stomach.

A few minutes later, Sam said, "Dean sometimes rubs my back if I can't fall asleep."

John could take a hint and started rubbing Sam's back and waited for him to finally fall asleep. He thought he heard a faint, "Wish Dean was here," but he pretended not to. It was going to be a long three days. He fell asleep on the edge of the bed, curled protectively around his baby boy.

The next morning, John allowed Sam to sleep as long as his body needed. He had cereal and milk on hand, and planned to go for a few other things if Sammy was feeling a bit better. He also found the thermometer, and called himself a few choice names for not taking Sam's temperature the night before. There wasn't much children's tylenol left, so he added it to the list just ask Sam walked into the kitchen.

"Hey, Sammy!" John said with a smile. "Feeling any better this morning?"

Sam shook his head and kept rubbing his eyes with his closed fists. He seemed to have a permanent pout on his face and looked awfully close to breaking into tears. John knew that feeling. Fevers were a bitch to deal with for grown men, much less a kid missing his brother on top of it.

"Come on, Sammy. Let's take your temp and get some food into you."

John steered Sam over to a chair at the table and made him sit. He was surprisingly compliant with the thermometer but laid his head down on the table at the mention of cereal. His temperature was over a hundred, but not dangerously high. Still, some tylenol would help and would be best with food.

"Is there anything else you feel like eating? You need to have something, kiddo."

"Applesauce?" Sam whispered.

Damn, John thought. He didn't remember seeing applesauce in his check of the cupboards.

"I'm sorry, buddy, I don't think we have any."

"Dean gets it for me. Sometimes he puts cinnamon in it."

Clearly, cinnamon is a prize worthy of special occasions and sick days. John had no idea that either of his boys liked applesauce. It had been one of Mary's favorites, too.

"Here's the plan," John said, and Sam paid a little more attention. "I'm going to call in an order to the store. You get cleaned up and dressed, and we'll go pick up our order. Then we come back here and watch cartoons all day. How does that sound?"

"I have to go outside?"

"Just for a little while."

Sam sighed and nodded. He didn't say it, but it was obvious that Dean would never make him do such a thing.

"Have a piece of toast first and a glass of water. And take your medicine."

When it looked like Sam was going to muster up energy for an argument, John changed tracks.

"Do you want to look over the list and let me know if there is anything else you need?"

Sam nodded and nibbled his way through the toast as he added things to the list. John noticed an expression of pain ever time he swallowed and got him to take his medicine.

Eventually, Sam pushed the list back toward his dad and sipped on his second glass of water.

"Pickles?" John asked, surprised. "I don't know, bud, those are pretty salty."

"I like the little ones. They taste better."

Next to popsicle, which John was pretty proud of himself for remembering, Sam had written not green! He wasn't sure how they came, but he might just have to eat the green ones himself or save them for Dean.

"I don't think you need peanut M&Ms, Sammy."

"They're good for me," Sam argued. "They have protein."

"So do beans," John replied.

Sam just sighed, like he couldn't believe he had to put up with this second rate parent. John swallowed something that tasted like guilt and left the M&M's on the list. The ice cream stayed, too, but he rationalized that it would help Sam's throat.

"Go get washed up and dressed."

"Can't I stay here?" Sammy asked with those huge eyes set on John's face. "I don't feeeeel good," he whined. It was obvious just by looking at him that he was feeling pretty bad.

"I know, Sammy. I don't want to take you out in the cold either, but I can't leave you home by yourself."

"I'm eight," Sam said like it settled things. And if he was Dean, it might be different.

John thought about it for a few minutes and wondered about the odd woman who lived next door. She was always pleasant to John, but the pinwheels covering her lawn made him a little wary. It was the middle of winter for Pete's sake. Granted, there wasn't more than an inch or two of snow at any given time, but still.

"Stay here and I'll go talk to Sharon."

A few hours later, Sam was asleep on the couch with his head in John's lap. He'd somehow wheedled John into leaving the table and sitting with him on the couch. Then he'd fallen asleep before the food arrived. John managed to sneak off and back on the couch without the boy waking, but now he seemed to be coming around.

Sam stretched and yawned before slitting his eyes open. "Dad?"

John smiled at his rumpled son and asked, "Feeling any better?"

Sam shook his head with a frown.

"Feeling worse?"

Sam nodded, still with a frown and his lower lip sticking out.

John felt Sam's forehead and brushed the stray hair back from his face. He felt warmer, so John stuck the thermometer back under Sam's tongue.

"Do you want a popsicle?"

A nod, yes.

"Ok, just sit tight and wait for that to beep. I'll be right back."

John remembered that the red popsicles were Sam's favorite. He also filled a glass of water and brought over a loaf of soft bread.

"Here you go, Sammy." he put the things down and grabbed the thermometer when it beeped. Sam's temp was rising, but it wasn't too high just yet. He could take some more medicine and the popsicle and water would help.

Sam sighed at the popsicle, and John had no idea what he'd done wrong that time. Luckily, the phone rang before he could loose his temper with the sick kid.

"Hello?"

"Hey, dad, just checking in."

"You don't know how glad I am to hear your voice, son."

"What's wrong?" Dean asked, immediately sounding worried.

""Nothing serious. Don't worry, but Sam isn't feeling well."

"Sammy's sick? Do - do you want me to come home? I can ask Pastor Jim to drive me."

"We'll be fine, Dean." John resisted the urge to ask advice from his twelve-year-old on how to take care of his eight-year-old. He was an adult and a father, damn it, he could handle a sore throat.

"Does he have popsicles? And pickles?" Dean asked.

"Yeah, we have those," John sighed. "He didn't seem too happy about the popsicle, though."

Without hesitation, Dean asked, "Did you make it right?" Then a short pause. "I mean the way he likes it when he's sick. It's a sore throat, right?"

John was so confused, and he just wanted to know the best way to deal with his youngest without going crazy first. "Yes, sore throat, and I brought him a red one. That's still his favorite, right?"

"Yeah, he loves the red ones. But when he's sick, he doesn't want the stick."

"No stick? But it's a popsicle."

"I know, but it's Sammy," Dean said as if that explained everything. When John thought about it, it kind of did. "You can use a spoon to slide the stuff off the stick into a bowl. Don't mush it up, though, he'll want to do that himself. And he'll want a red and purple one mixed together."

John's hand twitched toward a pen and notebook to take notes, but he didn't want to treat his kid the same way as something he hunts.

"Did he make you buy M&Ms?" Dean asked.

"He asked, and I bought some. Doesn't mean he made me," and holy shit was he sounding like Sammy.

Dean laughed briefly and tried to cover it with a cough. "Yeah, anyway, you'll want to separate them before he gets his sicky hands all over them."

"Separate them, right," John pretended to understand.

"Dad," Dean said in a tone that clearly meant John should know this like his own ass (a phrase for which John was still trying to plot revenge on Caleb for teaching his son). "It's Sammy, remember? He only eats the yellow M&Ms. They are peanut, right? Because he doesn't like the regular ones much, except the light brown ones."

"So, red and purple popsicles in a bowl with no sticks. And yellow M&Ms separated from the rest. Anything else?"

"Don't let him eat the whole jar of pickles at once."

"Right."

"When he starts feeling better, he'll want chicken nuggets."

That seemed easy enough. "I can do that."

"He'll only eat the ones shaped like a boot."

"..."

"Dad? You still there?"

John sighed. He really wished Dean was there to take care of his sick brother and didn't even care that it made him a horrible father.

"Yeah, I'm here. It'll make Sammy feel better if you talk to him, so hang on while I get him."

John took a break from everything while the boys talked. He could really use a nap. How was it that a sick kid could take more energy out of him than a good three-day hunt?

He decided to get a bowl of popsicles ready for Sam. The kid needed liquids and something for his throat, no matter how ridiculous John thought he was sometimes. Dean and he both coddled Sam, John knew, but it was so damn hard to say no to those big eyes full of love and trust.

As John tucked Sam in later that night, he glanced around for a book to read. The boy hardly ever fell asleep without a story, unless he was sprawled out on the backseat of the Impala on a cross-country trip.

"You don't need to read to me, dad. I'm pretty tired."

"You sure, Sammy? There must be something you want to hear tonight."

"Well," Sam paused and bit his lip. "Dean told me not to ask."

John frowned and wondered what fool thing could be more absurd than the kid's food habits.

"Go ahead and ask."

Sam swallowed painfully and said as fast as possible, "Dean tells me stuff about mom."

When John didn't respond, he added, "Just little things that he remembers. You know... like how she took care of him when he was sick or how she smelled after hanging the laundry. But he told me not to ask you to do that. So, I won't. Even though it's nice to hear about her."

Intense pain in his chest made John wonder for a fraction of a second if he was having a heart attack. But, no, this was so much worse. His eyes burned and throat hurt and he told himself to check for fever, later. The thought of his brave and damaged Dean telling his little brother about their mom would have brought him to his knees if he wasn't sitting on the bed.

"He's really told you those things?" John asked, part of him still not believing it. Dean and John never mentioned Mary to one another. Not since John had snapped at Dean shortly after he started speaking again and asked where his mother was.

Sam nodded and gave a small version of his Sammy Smile that made him look much older than his eight years. "He tells me one or two things like that when I'm sick or scared or late at night when we both can't sleep. It makes him sad, but sometimes I think it makes him happy, too. He said it would make you sad, too, so that's why I'm not asking you to tell me about her. I don't want you to be sad, daddy."

The 'daddy' gave away how vulnerable and nervous Sam was, even though he was speaking as steadily as his sore throat allowed. John decided to take another hint from Dean and settled in to tell Sam about his mother.

"Come here," he said as he leaned against the wall. Sam tucked into his side, and John ran his fingers through the curly hair. It was getting long, again. "Your mom would have liked your hair, Sammy. She always thought I should grow my hair out long, but I guess I had too much military in me. She used to ..."

John spoke about Mary for a full half hour, without any questions from Sam. He seemed only to want to soak in as much information as possible. Eventually, illness and exhaustion pulled Sam into sleep, and John drifted off shortly after with his arms around Sam and dreams of the family they used to be.

Re: Part 4
Thank you :) I'm glad you liked it. Kids are so weird with some things, especially food it seems. And I'm sure Dean would always do whatever he could to make Sam happy/comfortable, but he wouldn't complain (except lots of teasing once Sammy's feeling better).

Re: Part 4
Aw, I loved it! I'm pretty easily won over with a caring daddy!John, and I adore the way you portrayed his insecurity and his total inability to deny his sick boy anything.
The ending was great in its sadness, but I think my favourite part is the phone call from Dean.

"Did he make you buy M&Ms?" Dean asked.
"He asked, and I bought some. Doesn't mean he made me," and holy shit was he sounding like Sammy.

and

"When he starts feeling better, he'll want chicken nuggets."
That seemed easy enough. "I can do that."
"He'll only eat the ones shaped like a boot."
"..."
"Dad? You still there?"


That - just made me happy!

Re: Part 4
Oh, this was wondeful. I love how picky lil Sammy is, and how John was so patient with him. And loved Dean knowing exactly how things were going without John even saying very much. ♥ Oh, Winchesters. You own my heart.

Loved your writing, too. Very smooth and descriptive.

Re: Part 4
Are you trying to shatter me into a million pieces? Because you succeeded!

I have no words for how hysterical, and warm, and adorable, and heart breaking that story was. It was such a well rounded fic, with funny and serious bits all rolled into one fantastic story.

This had to be one of my favorite Wee!chester stories on the net. I'm blown away by how amazing that was. Dean telling John what to do as if he was Sam's father was so cute with just a twinge of sadness because John didn't know how to take care of Sam like he should have.

The chicken nugget line made me laugh out loud.
And John telling Sam about Mary put me on the verge of tears.

That was so wonderful, thank you so much for sharing - absolutely fantastic! ♥
