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 has broken up with his boyfriend and is moping - but doesn't dare tell John or Sam (or both, depending on where in the timeline you want to set the story) the real reason in case they freak. They see him moping, however, and try to cheer him up/comfort him.

Part 1
The small phone slipped in Dean’s sweaty hand, and he almost dropped it again as the deep voice on the other side argued furiously. His cigarettes weighed heavily in his pocket, and if he had an extra hand, he would have snatched out one, anything to ease the shaking in his fingers. That’s why Sam thought he had slipped out of the diner, anyway, blatantly lying about fresh air.

After this he would smoke one. Let Sam think he was smoking the whole pack.

“I’m sorry,” Dean repeated, the words thick and useless. He wondered if they had felt the same way to Sam that night he had left for Stanford so long ago. Did they rip through Sam the same way? Had they hurt this much?

Or had Sam just tossed them out and forgot all about them the moment he stepped onto the bus?

The other voice roared back, and Dean flinched, happy no one could see him huddled beside the Impala. She gracefully supported his weight. Solid and strong at his back, that was his baby. She’d never leave him.

And he would never leave her.

“I had no idea it was going to go this way,” Dean said desperately. “I thought it was just going to be a quick thing.”

He was only supposed to find Dad. Find Dad, find out what was going on, find out anything.

He never expected for Jessica -- and Sam’s dreams -- to go up in flames.

Now the other voice was hoarse, desperate. Dean closed his eyes, felt an unfamiliar burn behind his lids. Clean break, Dad always said. Make it clean.

He also said don’t start what you didn’t plan on finishing.

“Good-bye,” Dean said dully. He clicked the phone shut on the wild shouts. The phone immediately began vibrating to signal an incoming call. After a moment of thought, Dean stuck it in his pocket, felt it vibrating against his upper thigh. As he shakily pulled out his cigarettes and lit one up, the phone stopped vibrating, only to start up again.

It didn’t matter, he told himself, lips too dry over the cigarette. He exhaled and took the time to lick his lips. It wasn’t like it would have worked anyway. He had known from the start that they came from different worlds.

Maybe it was Dean’s turn to be the one to leave.

“Hey, Dean!” Sam called, jogging over to the Impala. In Dean’s pocket, his phone was still vibrating. “Lunch is ready. You done killing yourself yet?”

The cigarette fell from Dean’s suddenly limp fingers.

Re: Part 1
Oh, no!

O.O How awesome are you? Dean had a significant other, too, someone he had to leave so the road trip could begin. I never thought of that! That is absolutely brilliant!

(You have to excuse the overuse of exclamation marks here. Your idea gets me all excited.)

Part 2
Bacon cheeseburger, cheese fries, large coke, and a free slice of pie with ice cream on top. Just looking at it made Sam’s heart hurt, but it rarely failed to put a grin on Dean’s face.

Until now.

Dean ate three fries and two bites of his cheeseburger before excusing himself for another smoke break, or “fresh air,” as Dean liked to say. Sam looked at the still swinging door, then at his salad, then at Dean’s plate before stealing two fries.

Licking the incriminating cheese from his lips, Sam stared at the diner door. Dean hadn’t seemed that hungry when they pulled in the diner in the first place. Maybe he just wanted an excuse for a smoke break. Couldn’t smoke in the Impala, after all.

Was there ever a time when Dean wasn’t hungry, though? Maybe Dean’s addiction had grown since Sam had left…except Sam had thought Dean had quit smoking. When had he started up again? What had Sam missed?

His own appetite fading, Sam poked at his salad and kept staring at the door. He tried to remember the rules of Dean’s smoke breaks. They were Winchesters. Every part of their lives had little, quiet rules, enough to fill a military handbook, complete with annotations and quotations and exceptions. Was he allowed to see Dean when he wasn’t even sure that he was supposed to know Dean was smoking again?

Glancing at his own salad, Sam raised a hand for the waitress. Like he hadn’t been flaunting the rule book for years, anyway. Besides, how was he supposed to make Dean quit if he was looking the other way?

“To go, please.”

Lunch effectively bagged, Sam jogged out to the Impala. It was parked all the way down the lot, far away from the “cheap little tin cans” that might accidentally scratch Dean’s baby and thus lead to them being tried for murder on top of credit card fraud and vandalism. By the time Sam reached Dean, Dean had two crumpled cigarettes at his feet, a third in his mouth. Sam frowned when he saw Dean’s shaking fingers holding the cigarette to his mouth.

“Hey,” he began, and Dean hummed, eyeing the bag in Sam’s hand.

“You ready?” Dean interrupted, dropping his cigarette. He crushed it under his boot and then turned to the door. “Let’s go then.”

Not a comment about rushing or how cold his fries were going to be. Dean was the one missing the steps, not Sam. Concerned, Sam stepped forward. “Dean?”

But Dean was already in the driver’s seat, slamming the door behind him.

Part 3
When Sam fell silent, he wanted everything around him to be quiet to make his silence that much louder, his displeasure that much more clear. When Dean fell silent, he blasted the radio, hiding in someone else’s noise rather than his own. When he spoke, it was to drown out Sam’s questions, raising his voice with the radio as loudly and obnoxiously as he could.

It was amazing the little things one could forget after two years of no contact. Like how you could love someone so much and still want to strangle them.

Practically feeling the blood dripping from his ears, Sam gestured at a flashing “vacancy” sign. “There’s a motel!” he shouted.

Without blinking, Dean drove right past it. “What?” he shouted back after a moment.

Sam gritted his teeth and counted backwards from ten. Then twenty. “We should stop!” he shouted. After a moment’s thought, he added, “I don’t feel good.”

Instantly, Dean turned down the radio and made a quick U-turn. Now Sam really didn’t feel good. Their tires didn’t squeal, but the car’s behind theirs did. “Why didn’t you say so when we passed that motel?” Dean demanded.

Sam really did love his brother. Today was a good day to remind himself of that. Continuously. “Just park,” he said with a sigh, rubbing his forehead.

Dean had Sam pay for the room while he waited by the Impala. More fresh air, Sam supposed. He tried to remember if Dean had smoked this much in California. He didn’t think so, but a lot of things had changed between then and now.

Pushing that thought aside -- maybe he would get his own little bit of fresh air later -- Sam paid for the motel room with an ease that was already disconcerting and walked out to find Dean playing with his phone with one hand, holding his cigarette with the other. Sam winced as Dean inhaled deeply, but instead of commenting, he looked at Dean’s phone, too.

Open, close, open, close. Sam grimaced. Waiting for a call from Dad?

When Dean saw Sam, he snapped it shut and slid it in his pocket. “Which room?”

Another smoke break after unloading the gear, and Sam kept silent and just opened his laptop. One window searched for mysterious fires. The other window searched for ways to help a loved one quit smoking.

He searched for fifteen minutes, all the while expecting Dean to come back inside and announce that he was going to the bar, did Sam want to come. When the motel door didn’t open, Sam closed his laptop and went outside.

Instead of being surprised, Sam only felt tired when he saw Dean leaning against the Impala, a cigarette at his feet and another in his hand. He held the door open. “Come on inside,” he called quietly. “It’s cold.”

And it was, in a way that had nothing to do with the fact that Sam could see his breath.

Dean stared at him for a moment, then dropped his cigarette to the ground. He rubbed his face once, shook his head, and then followed Sam inside.

Part 4
“I’ll wait! No matter what it is, I’ll wait. I promise!”

“I’m sorry.”


Dean awoke with a jerk, eyes wide. He lay still for a moment, feeling his heart pound in his chest hard enough to hurt. He clutched at his knife under his pillow, but it only felt cold against his fingers, so he pulled away.

Shaking, Dean pushed himself up and rubbed his face with both hands. Soft grunts drew his attention to the other bed. Watching his brother toss and turn, Dean scrubbed his face even harder.

What right did he have to bitch and whine? How could he possibly…?

Dean shook his head and stumbled to the bathroom. There was going to be no more sleep for him tonight.

By the time he finished washing his face and brushing his teeth, Sam was awake and sitting up on his bed. Dean almost walked past him, his fingers itching for a cigarette even thought he knew how nasty it would taste after brushing his teeth, but he couldn’t walk past his brother when Sam had that desolate look in his eyes. Silently, he sat beside his brother and reached out an arm. Sam needed no further prompting to curl up beside him and rest his head on his shoulder.

For a moment, it was like they were ten and six again, Dean comforting Sam after a nightmare, Sam comforting Dean against the silence, the Winchester brothers against the world.

Dean turned his head to bury his face in his brother’s hair, breathing in the soothing scent. Sam reeked of sour sweat and lingering nightmares, but he was warm and whole against Dean’s side, and Dean surreptitiously drank in what comfort that could give.

Sam didn’t ask what Dean was doing awake at that hour. He just wrapped one of his Sasquatch arms around Dean’s waist and pulled him closer. His grip bordered on bruising, but Dean didn’t give a damn.

When Sam began to hum Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, the only song he had ever been able to not completely massacre, Dean huffed a laugh in his hair. It really felt like they were ten and six again, Sam humming and determined to keep the silence, the loneliness, away, just for a little bit.

Them against the world. Maybe Dean wouldn’t end this journey alone after all.

He joined in humming, closing his eyes. He wished he could have introduced their pair, positive they would have liked each other. Even if Sam would have been shocked that Dean was dating a guy, Dean was sure Sam would have been happy for him.

Dean just wished he could have given Jared a better good-bye.

Re: Part 4
Oh man, great execution of an interesting concept!
I loved it!
And not just because Dean's a smoker in this -- though that sure didn't hurt ;)

Re: Part 4
I thought Dean fit as a smoker until I saw the jail episode. Then I read your fics, so now I'm stuck on the idea again. ^^;;;

Oooh, I love the idea of Dean having somebody he needed to leave behind, and this is a great look at it.

I'm responding so late because I was asleep. Damn timezones. :D

This is so awesome. Dean's hurt and Sam's comfort and worry, so subtle and quiet. And Winchesters cuddling in bed in a gen way is one of my favorite things, too. XD You hit all the kinks with this one.

Lots of love! ♥
