1. Title: Lullabies for Monsters
Genre: character study, what would be soul-crushing angst if there were souls to be had
Characters: Gwen, Sam, Dean
Word Count: 1400 or so
Notes: Takes place during 6x02, after the hunt but before Dean goes back to Lisa's. For coronasunrise at hoodie_time's Dean-centric H/C comment!fic meme. Original prompt/post. :)
There's angels in Wisconsin and demons everywhere else. There's Jesus on tortillas and Campbells back from Heaven and wendigo in Colorado. And if there's nothing else inside him, there's a brotherhood between him and Dean. Whether Sam can feel that or not, he knows they're in this together.
2. Title: he saw the giant sea above his head
Genre: angst, hurt/comfort (Dean's deal, anxiety, scars)
Characters: Sam, Dean
Word Count: 1100 or so
Notes: Takes place just before 3x16 "No Rest for the Wicked", in the last morning hours before a certain crossroads deal comes due. For maypoles at hoodie_time's Dean-centric H/C comment!fic meme. Original prompt/post. :)
There's a thin scar, running jagged through Dean's hair, that Sam knows too well. You can't see it unless you're close, unless you know it's there. But Sam's close, and he knows, and he sees it. He'll see it forever.
3. Title: Peanuts
Genre: character study, hurt/comfort (hurt!Dean, some hurt!Sam), pre-series/Stanford!era
Characters: Sam, Dean, Jess, OCs (Stanford friends)

Summary: Sam's Stanford pals start trading life stories. Sam's just not sure what his is--at least until he gets a taste of what it's not.
Notes: Stanford!era, just before 1x01, with flashbacks going back through Flagstaff, and Wee!chesters. For coronasunrise at hoodie_time's Dean-centric H/C comment!fic meme. Original prompt/post. :)
"See, this is what happens when you don't speak up for yourself, Sam. People fill in the blanks for you. Trailer trash from the Valley, right?"
SPN 6x12 "Like a Virgin". Honestly I'm still trying to come home to the idea that the Apocalypse happened a year ago, so I have no coherent reaction to this. XP But I loved this:
OKAY. FOR REAL THIS TIME. STUDYING.
