The gasoline catches with a soft whump. Firelight dances over our faces. I feel Sam go perfectly still beside me. It’s our first salt-and-burn since Stanford. Since I pulled Sam away from the flames, out of the apartment he shared with Jess.

I want to … I don’t know. Elbow him? Say I’m sorry? Tell him he’s safe. But I don’t lie. I wait. Keep an eye on Sam. See what he’ll do. Purifying flame is one of the basic tools of the trade. If the other side uses it, too - Sam just has to learn to deal.

This sounds so perfectly Dean. He doesn't have the tools to deal with Sam's kind of grief, so of course he falls back on what he knows: man up, we've got work to do. Not in a cruel way, just ... because that's how it is.

Dang, my comment is almost as long as your drabble! LOL! Well done.

I want to … I don’t know. Elbow him? Say I’m sorry? Tell him he’s safe. Very nicely done for Dean's train of thought here.

Dean really doesn't know how to help. Thanks, Callisto!
