Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke, and so do a few lines of dialog I lifted straight from the transcripts.

****


Sam arrived at Madison’s apartment just before sunset, stomach tight. Dean was sitting on the steps outside, smoking a cigarette.

“Job’s done,” Dean announced, pushing to his feet, dropping his cigarette, and looking down carefully as he ground the butt into the sidewalk with his heel. “Let’s get going.”

****


“Shh. It’s okay. I’m not gonna hurt you,” the man says to Missy Bender.

She reaches for her knife. He lunges; gets a hand over her jaw and another tight on her shoulder, pulling her against him. She tries to bite, to kick, feels her neck twist too far.

****


Ava peered out the motel window just in time to see the sniper’s body fall, loose-limbed, from the roof to splatter on the pavement below.

“Gordon went over the edge in the struggle,” Dean explained, voice regretful for Sam, eyes hard for Ava, so she can’t miss the warning.

****


The night was lit by the flames of three burning police cars. Agent Henricksen looked up from the concrete, Winchester’s boot on his chest. Saw a Colt .45 and an ironic smile.

“What, you thought we were gonna come quietly?” and a gunshot were the last sounds he ever heard.

****


“Sammy! It’s still alive. It’s inside me. I can feel it. You shoot me,” John pleaded. “You shoot me! You shoot me in the heart, son! Do it, now!” Sam hesitated.

“Do it,” Dean said, voice thick and pain-filled. The last thing John Winchester felt on this Earth was pride.

****


Dean pulls the Crossroads Demon in for a kiss. He opens his mouth and she shoves her tongue in. Knives slash over, into, every inch of his skin. Dean locks his knees against the pain and feels Sammy take his first breath.

Whatever happens, it’s worth it.

****

The 50-word limit per scene was difficult, but I wanted to see if I could pull it off. Thank you for the comment!

I still really love this, and I meant it when I said holy shit - the Papa John section dropped my jaw.

Also, dark!Dean ftmfw. :D

Great job!

There's so much evil!Sam fic around, hardly seems fair if Dean doesn't get to be bad sometimes, too. Thanks for the help!

The kill demon-possesed-John, I actually liked... I wasn't a big fan, and also, it would of saved both of their lives, in the long run.

It really would have. Of course, the Dean who could make that choice is a different man than the one in canon.

Although, if Dean passed out, and Sam did it all on his own... Dean's charactor wouldn't change.

I guess their relationship would be in jeapordy though.

MAYBE he could get away with it if he had a vision of what would happen if he didn't do it...

Oh, these are all very nice - and chilling. Especially the last two. Oh, Dean.

Thank you, smilla02. The one with John gets me every time I re-read it.

OH... hmmm... that was interesting. And not entirely canon, did I get that right? But not entirely not either... hmmm. I kinda like it.

The first five are AUs - Dean never killed any of those people in canon. The sixth? Completely canon. Dean killed himself with that Deal.

Thank you for reading and commenting, cat!

Oh, that's a terrifying Dean. So cold, so hard. The tight word limit makes every single line count. Nice.

Thank you! This one was a real challenge, technically, with a 50 word limit. I can see this Dean. He's just one step away from canon. I'm not quite sure what hinge-event pushed him there, but I can feel it. Something happened while Sam was away at Stanford. Don't think he's told anyone about it.
