'Champion' [PG] OC, Dean, Sam

Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG
Characters: OC, Dean, Sam
Length: Double drabble - 200 words

Author's Notes: Written for the April Madness Contest: Dean's Amulet at spn_drabble.
Summary: Michael and Lucifer weren't the first to claim the brothers.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

Once I was worshipped by warriors. The bravest hurled themselves into battle with my name upon their lips. Now, men are sheep, and my name is lost in the wind.

My image, cast into an amulet, was a gift from one brother to another. I watched, for even a child’s faith is sweet. The boy battled evil, and I fought beside him. ‘There,’ I whispered when Dean sought the enemy. ‘Down,’ and death missed by inches.

‘Burn,’ I murmured when Dean’s brother lay cold, soul escaped to a hero’s reward. But my Champion would not, could not, let him go.

**********


Dean returns soul-rent from the Underworld, his honorable battle scars replaced by a possessive brand. Sam places my amulet around his brother’s neck, but my Champion does not hear me. My whisper is lost among the screams that echo in his mind.

Dean is hunted by the slaves of another god. They lie. Name him a sword, a weapon, when he is a proud warrior against the dark. They are cowards, bloodless avatars that would steal the bodies of shield-brothers to fight their battle.

When I find their god, I shall indeed burn hot. The brothers are Mine.

I bow down before your brilliance. I loved the first part, but I could highlight the entire second drabble. This is perfection.

Thank you, tifaching! This narrator's POV was an interesting one to explore. He is NOT a fan of the angels.

This is absolutely amazing. What an incredible, very believable take on the amulet. Way, way better than what I did with it in that one challenge. Man, that last line just gets me--that whole second half gives me goosebumps.

The amulet being the icon of a lost pagan god is believable? Hah! That's a pleasant surprise. Thanks, whitereflection!

I have no clue what just happened there, but it was hardcore badass.

Well I'm sorry to be obtuse, but glad the BAMFery still came across.

Dean's amulet is the image of an ancient pagan warrior god. He claims Dean as his Champion, and does not appreciate this other god and the angels horning in on his territory.

Stumbled across this through friendsfriends, and man, I'm glad I did.

I think this is my new personal canon.

Thanks so much, stormcloude, that's one of the finest compliments a writer can receive in fanfiction!
