This is for my hoe @whywhydoyouwantmetosaymyname Orion’s 1K Follower Writing Challenge. I got the quote ‘Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed. But still, you find reasons to keep living’-Princess Mononoke. Not sure if I asked for a specific gender or even a specific pairing, but I went with Dean x Reader. Hope that’s ok!!
Characters: Y/n, Dean, OC Ellie
Pairing: Dean x Y/n (GENDER NEUTRAL)
TRIGGER WARNINGS: DEPRESSION? BROKEN DEAN.
Warnings: Angst, broken Dean, mentions of character death, neglectful John, sadness. Fluff and hope at the end!! Sorta depressed Dean I guess? Not specified, but you could take it that way.
Word Count: 1423
Summary: Y/n sees the changes in Dean and tries to understand what’s going through his mind.
A/N: Ok, so some angst cos…this quote kinda screamed it. But there’s fluff too, so yayyy!! Also, this is kinda AU I guess. No specific AU, just a non hunting world. Hope u like it!!

You saw what was happening with him.
The way he’d barely speak anymore. His eyes always tired, bags growing as his hair became a mess.
He barely shaved. He’d spend longer than usual in the shower. He wouldn’t look at you or Ellie.
You knew he was a mess.
Why? There was no reason.
This was just Dean.
He’d always been this way.
Take away the bubbly, sweet, slightly cocky mask he wore, he was just a damaged and hurt little boy.
You knew he blamed himself.
He blamed himself for everything.
