Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG, gen
Length: 100 words
Series: devon99 suggested a series of AU drabbles. I'm calling them Neverweres.
Spoilers: 'Salvation', gone AU.
Summary: What if John stopped protecting his boys from the truth?
Author's Notes: Inspired by amonitrate's essay, The stuff heroes are made of: family dysfunction & the Winchester cycle of self-sacrifice.
Disclaimer: These characters, and some of the dialogue, belong to Kripke.

“Your brother starts getting visions,” John said, “you pick up the phone, and you call me.”

“Call you?” Dean said incredulously. “Are you kidding me? Dad, I called you from Lawrence. Sam called you when I was dying. Getting you on the phone—I’ve got a better chance of winning the lottery.”

“You’re right. I’m not crazy about the tone, but … you need to know. Both of you. The night Mary was murdered; the demon was there for Sam.”

“My fault,” Sam whispered.

“No,” John contradicted. “Demon’s got plans, though.” John looked up. ”And we’re gonna save you. Together.”

Another one that makes me wish that's how it would have happened. ♥

Oh, looking for details, are you? OK!
First of all, its very possible that, if they were working together as partners, watching each other's backs, that John would not be possessed. Even if events at the end of season 1 unfolded exactly the same way, he wouldn't be sharing that toxic secret and directive with Dean. Save Sam. If you can't, kill him. 'Cause that's pretty much when things start going to Hell. In a literal, as well as figurative way.

With the struggle against the demon bringing them together, instead of Dean's fear pushing them apart, season 2 and 3 would go very, very differently indeed.

Awwwwwwww, thanks.

Fanfiction's not a spectator sport - there's a standing to jump onto the court and play! Not saying you HAVE to write, but it's my job to encourage you to! How else will the world experience your unique voice? And you can't get better without practice! (Drabbles are great practice.)

I know, right?

Aww, John. If only....

Yeah, we can only wish...

I think that bit of honesty, of trust, would have made more difference to canon than, say, Azazel getting killed in Salvation.

(Added you because I like your fic.)
Why thank you, that's really nice to hear!

I read your drabbles and I think about how the series could have gone so much differently. I applaud your awesome talent.

Re: Woah.
Thanks so much, anony-mouse! I had a lot of fun with this series of drabbles.
