I really want to thank Kevin for being with Kris during his birthday every year without fail. I know in a recent interview Kris had acknowledged having only 1 or 2 close friends nowadays. Most of his close friends have married and have kids so he felt that their paths in life were deviating from each other. Although they have different paths, I know they still love Kris and consider him as a brother. It just saddens me to see less of his friends physically be there every year.
I’ve been binge watching SPN after work and as I finished season 9 episode 9, “Holy Terror,” this little piece came to me. Reader is a hunter who had been recruited by Garth and the boys to come back to the Bunker and keep Kevin safe. But then Gadreel happens and you know the rest…
Smut and angst. Smangst?? NSFW.
You watched as Dean sifted through the last of Kevin’s research. The tension in the room was so palpable you felt you needed to back slowly away, but you couldn’t leave your friend alone in this moment. In such a short amount of time, you’d grown so close to the Winchesters and to Kevin Tran. All the wonderful things you’d heard about these men in hunting circles and from Garth and Bobby had been true. You felt you’d found true friendship here and maybe even a home. But that was then. Now you’d just finished helping Dean burn Kevin’s body and Gadreel, in Sam’s body, was in the wind.
Suddenly, as if he’d read your fears, Dean broke. He furiously swept all the paperwork off the table, then tossed the lamp, and finally picked up Kevin’s chair and smashed it against the other table, emitting a growl that only sounded partially human. Staying where you were would’ve been the reasonable action to take. You were close enough to provide support but not too close to get in his way. However, reasonable had never been a word used to describe you.
“The audience have spoken. They want stories. They’re dying for them. They’re rooting for us to give them the right thing. And they will talk about it, binge on it, carry it with them on the bus and to the hairdresser, force it on their friends, tweet, blog, facebook, make fan pages, silly gifs and god knows what else about it. Engage with it with a passion and an intimacy that a blockbuster movie could only dream of. All we have to do is give it to them.”
