Canon era roller coasters

(or how I keep getting my mind blown by things that existed in canon era)

This was totally my own ignorance but I really didn’t know that in French roller coasters are called “Russian mountains”.

Fix You

Dean x Reader

Summary: Dean’s carrying the weight of the whole world on his shoulders, his guilt the heaviest of them all. He doesn’t know how to alleviate it, doesn’t know if he can. Skip the car, he has to get out of there. So out of the warmth of your house he goes, into the dark of the cold winter night. Good luck finding a man who’s not sure he wants to be found. (Takes place post Season 5 Finale)

Words:  3.3k (It kind of got away from me)

Warnings: ANGST, emotional roller coaster, canon divergence, swearing, guilt, self-loathing, dark thoughts, fluff? 

A/n: I haven’t written in a while, so I’m a little rusty.This one does goes a little dark. I’m in a weird place right now. Forgive me. It does end well though, or at least I think it does, all things considered. Inspiration drawn from a song by Coldplay. Flashbacks are in italics. Dean’s POV for the most part, yours in the flashback. Also, this is my first time really writing in Dean’s pov, so I’d love some feedback :)
