Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG, gen
Spoilers/Warnings: Season 5 spoilers. Violent and dark, as befits a horror meme. Unbeta'd.
Challenge: Written for the sharp_teeth Horror Comment-fic challenge for devilsduplicity's prompt: "Castiel was never Castiel. The Devil is a sneaky serpent, and Sam finds out the hard way."
Summary: Sam's not gonna to lose his brother. Not again.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

Sam, legs shattered, drags himself towards Castiel. The angel is pinned to the concrete by his own blade.

“Castiel, you have to save -” Dean’s sudden scream from the next room cuts Sam off. He’s never heard his brother make a noise like that. Never. What the fuck is Zachariah doing to him?

“This vessel – too damaged,” Castiel gasps, coughing up blood.

“What if I … let you in?” Sam asks frantically. “Can you use me to save him?”

Castiel’s head jerks in a tiny nod.

“Yes,” Sam says instantly.

A blinding light explodes through the room, the building, the city. It smashes into Sam, cold and familiar.

Not Castiel, Sam protests, voiceless, stripped down to nothing by the light.

Of course I am, Sam. You know I’d never lie to you. I’ve had many names, and Castiel was one of them. Don’t worry; I’ll save Dean for you. Now I have my true vessel, the angels won’t be able to stop me.

Thanks, sophiap! Lucifer is patient. And truthful. Even kind, in his own twisted way.

Oh, this was great, and so plausible. Lucifer never lies, he just misdirects. Awesome answer to the prompt.

Actually, I find some of Castiel's actions very IMplausible for Lucifer, even a Lucifer playing a role. But it was a fun scene to write! Thanks, tifaching!

Re: Exellent!
Thank you for the prompt reply! I love your short passages so much! I also want to translate The Rare Answer'ed Prayer and The Search for God.Can I?
By the way, can you read Chinese?

Re: Exellent!
I give you permission to translate any of my stories that you're interested in!

Here's my Master List of Supernatural fic - the pieces 300 words and under are listed as Ficlets, Drabbles and Snippets half-way down. It seems you like Castiel fic, so you might be interested in No Longer in Service.

By the way, can you read Chinese?
*laughs* I read Japanese like an 8 year-old, so I won't be able to offer any meaningful feedback on your translations. Sorry! I'd still love links if you post them publically, though.

Re: Exellent!
Thank you so much!
You are good at writing short passages and that's brilliant!

Yeah I love Castiel fic.No Longer in Service is really a sad story,but it has been translated by others.

HaHa it's ok you don't know Chinese. My English is not very good too,sometimes I find it so hard to translate.Would you like to discuss with me about your articles when I can't understand them?

By the way,what character do you love best in Supernatural? I love Castiel. :)

Re: Exellent!
*blushes* Thank you! I'd be happy to chat about my ficlets, if you have a question about any aspects of them.

Oh, I didn't know 'No Longer in Service' had been translated, that's exciting!

I think Dean's my favorite character. Castiel and the other angels are the ones I have the hardest time writing, because they are so inhuman.

Re: Exellent!
Sorry it took so long to reply you.I went to learn swimming.

HaHa I know Dean is attractive .You did a great job in writing the angels.^^

I have one question: I kind of don't understand the title"The Rare Answer'ed Prayer ",especially the word "Answer'ed".Will you explain it for me? Thank you!

Re: Exellent!
Of course! I often read my short pieces out loud to myself, and that title is meant to be read aloud.

Rare means that this is very unusual - most prayers are NOT answered these days.

Answer'ed has the same meaning as answered, a prayer that is responded to, a wish that is granted. The ' mark in the middle just changes the pronunication, makes the ed at the end into its own separate syllable. It's done in poetry sometimes.

Prayer is obvious, I think.

Does that make sense?

Oh, and feel free to PM more or email me at keerawa at yahoo dot com, if you like.
