Summary: You decide you need Sam, now. So you and him drive off in the Impala and park somewhere to have some fun A/N: I wrote this in about an hour and a half so that means… you should grab some clean panties. <3 Pairing: Sam x Reader Warnings: language, smut, oral (male receiving), I think that’s all?

Dean would not stop talking. You all had finished a hunt early in the day, and there wasn’t another one lined up - so in this motel room you sat. You, Sam, and Dean had migrated over to the table in the room; and as midnight approached, the more alcohol you all drank. Well, the more alcohol that Dean drank; and the more alcohol Dean drank, the more he talked.
You and Sam were all for a night off, but neither of you were in the partying mood this evening. You sat next to Sam, and Dean sat across from you. You’d finally gotten him to be quiet, even if it was just for a minute as you had him watching YouTube videos on your tablet. You and Sam enjoyed the silence for a moment.
I’m late to the party due to Vancon, but oh, lookie –
13x03 Dean is wearing the exact same outfit from 9x06 - solid blue and black shirt/layers. Black = grief, sadness, depression; Blue = (in relation to Dean) Cas.
The one significant difference: Dean’s jacket. It’s trenchcoat Cas-coded (Dean channeling Cas via clothes - a recurring pattern on the show i.e. his 12x18 suit, Cas-coded tie, collared plaid after sleeping with a Cas-replacement waitress for the very last time).
Berens penned both 9x06 and 13x03.
Jody and Missouri are present in 13x03
possible psychic readings (Dean as querent - exposition of his feelings/bargaining-depression-acceptance stages via tarot cards)
A Dean and Jody scene was filmed at a Gas n Sip.
What am I trying to say here?
They’re using the past narrative to reinforce the present (bring subtext to text) aka building blocks!
9x06 was Destiel-infused – Pine tree air fresheners, “Big O”, Sun logo = Cas, the romantic dating tropes, the Buffy and Tony Manero/Annette parallels, the fanfiction gap, Misha acting like a jilted lover = Dean overall pining and taking Cas on a date because he missed him post-Bunker kick out.
Well, I hope the audience gets some sort of explicit visual/vocal acknowledgement from Dean or an EXPOSITION regarding Dean’s feelings (remember the number 3? “Big reveal” pattern) where a comparison between 9x06 and 13x03 is made.
9x06: Cas wasn’t dead but human vs. 13x03: Cas is perma-dead. In both episodes, Cas’ absence (profoundly) affects Dean.
@thetwistedwillow and I suggested – what if the Gas n Sip cashier reminds Dean of Cas? Perhaps Dean actually buys something, then his grief induces overlapping 9x06 flashbacks of Cas behind the counter. What if we observe him sifting through his 9x06 memories? What if Dean and Jody have an expositional talk?
Ah, the possibilities!
I’m not saying they WILL do these things, but considering the matching outfits, environment, and circumstances, there’s a chance we’ll see a 9x06 reference when 13x03 airs.
Summary: Dean is up and talking, but doesn’t remember much of what happened, and struggles with the consequences of his injuries.

It had been a horrible day. One of those types of days you
wanted to crawl back into bed, and wait to try again the next day. Nothing little,
like losing your keys, or spilling your coffee. No, when you had a bad day, it
went really bad.
It had all started as soon as you had woken up. Rolling over
in bed, you realized that Jensen wasn’t there with you. Of course, he had left
early, planning on spending the day at the brewery. Sighing, you had gone into
the bathroom, only to realize your period had started during the night. That
brought tears to your eyes, as you sank down to the side of the bath tub. You
had so been hopeful that it was this time. That you would finally be pregnant.
You had been trying so hard, and it hadn’t happened yet.
