This one is for @deansdirtylittlesecretsblog, Mimi’s Rom Com Fluff Challenge. I picked the quote from the movie Ever After, “She came to tell you the truth and you fed her to the wolves!” But I hope you don’t mind I added one or two words in there. Word Count: 3062 Characters: Reader, John, Dean, Sam, mentions of Bobby Warnings: angst, fluff, kissing, mentions of supernatural violence and death, possible triggers for an abusive male figure A/N: This one was beta’d by (you guessed it) @whispersandwhiskerburn, I couldn’t do it without you. You’re the person I’d thank at an award ceremony. This fic is also set when the boys are younger and still hunting under John’s watchful eye. Flashback in Italics, quote in bold.
“Uncle John, I need to talk to you.” “What is it, Y/N?” His voice was weary, as if he already knew what was coming. I noticed the boys were pointedly not looking at me. I swallowed, then continued. “I want to lead this hunt. It’s a werewolf case–I can handle it.” “No.” No reasons, no nothing. That was what Sam and I both hated about John–he was such a drill-sergeant. His way was the only way when you hunted with John Winchester. “But Uncle John, you never let me–” “I said no, Y/N. And if you can’t listen and follow orders, then you can sit out for this case.” He was standing now, squaring off against me. The Winchester patriarch may have passed his prime, but his body was still coiled muscle and his mind was as sharp as a tack. He eyed me up and down, noting my defiant stance. “I’m serious, Y/N. You’re off this case until I say otherwise.” The room was shrinking around me, suddenly the size of a closet; there was nowhere to get away from Uncle John’s angry stare or the pitying looks coming from the Sam and Dean. Well, I’d show them.
But I didn’t. I got my ribs cracked and got a civilian killed instead. And now I had to tell John. Which was going to be way worse than a few ribs going snap.
Hamilton au in which everything is the same, except when John dies his ghost gets attached to Philip and becomes his guardian. Phillip grows up thinking of him as kind of an invisible big brother or cool imaginary uncle, and John is there to protect Phillip during the duel so he doesn’t die and Ham and Eliza work out their problems and eVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT
