Hi! Sorry to bother you. I was just thinking, with the AU and Sam never existing there, does the idea of a hunter!Jess from the AU as Sam's happy ending sounds plausible to you?
Hi! Please forgive the late reply! And you could never bother me! (okay, you could, but you sincerely didn’t) :)
This is an interesting idea, especially since they brought Jess back into the text with Dean mentioning her while speaking to Mary. However, I do believe that the reason the writers brought Jess into that context was twofold:
as a callback to the inciting incident that began Sam’s journey towards learning the truth of his demonic heritage and how that’s informed his sense of self ever since
as a beautiful reminder to look at Jess and Sam as a mirror for Cas and Dean, especially at the moment of Cas’ death in 12x23, where Sam dragging Dean from the AU World is more or less, beat by beat, the same visual narrative as that of 1x01, where Dean did the same with Sam as Jess burned on the ceiling
However, I sincerely doubt they planted her as a way of possibly linking to her return. It’s not impossible, but improbable to me, because I believe Sam’s happiness lie in getting to finally stand on his own two feet (12x22 had me screaming and jumping around at the emergence of Leader Sam) and be allowed to grow up. This has started now, as his big brother has finally been able to let go of his core character motivation of protecting Sammy at all costs.
(That’s not to say the brothers won’t still have each other’s backs! They will choose one another not because they’re family, but because they truly love each other and neither would ever leave the other behind.)
I’m posting a longer ask-reply on several asks I’ve gotten regarding the AU World so I won’t go too deep into that here, except to say I do not believe this world will be explored in any actual depth. I believe it will be like Purgatory, where we’ll be allowed a sense of what the world is like through Mary fighting to get back to her boys (possibly fighting Lucifer in the process, or even having to team up with him, which would be awesome) but the AU World will most likely not be adding too much into our known world because, as far as I see it, there’s no real point.
For hunter!Jess to be believable, they would have to build a backstory for her, which means delving deeper into the AU World - its history, its rules and cast of characters - than I think they’ll take the time to do.
So my answer is going to have to be no: I don’t think it’s plausible they’ll bring hunter!Jess back as Sam’s happy ending. Partially because he doesn’t emotionally need her to in order to complete his character arc, and partially because it would just be a hurdle of continuity to introduce her this late in the game.
Thanks for the ask, and your patience, and I hope this answered your question!

things I now think about too much: what happened during Anders' harrowing. How did he deal with it. What demons did he face. These are the questions that keep me up at night.
(Whoops, my fingers slipped. This is based on the headcanon that this codex entry from DA:I pertains to Anders’ Harrowing. Tbh I’ve never actually seen a fic detailing his Harrowing, so now there is one. Dialogue is also borrowed heavily from the magi origin because most of it is probably the same, given how the Chantry likes their speeches and rituals and rites and whatnot)
It was the middle of the night when Anders was harshly woken and all but dragged from his bed. Even in his half-asleep stupor, he knew what was coming. He was of age, and he’d known it would come eventually. The Harrowing. As much as he feared it, the fact that they were taking him meant that, despite all his trouble making, at least he wouldn’t be made Tranquil. Whatever this ritual entailed, even if it meant his death, it must have been preferable than being made a soulless husk. The blonde held on to that thought as the Templars kept him moving, trying to ignore his heart threatening to burst through his ribcage.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a beautiful pair of twins who casted a spell that soon changed the lives of many. It was a fair night in New York, 13th November 2013 when one of the twins, Kariann, casted a spell that these two normal American girls will rule the world. A year later, Kimby, the younger of the twins, wanted to prove that she has greater power. And so, on 3rd December 2014 in London, she casted magic, pure magic. When the two normal American girls started walking down the runway, they held hands and they lived happily ever after. (And may be they married.)
Tranquillity would be horrific if applied to her, but as an abstract practise she doesn’t object to it. In fact, before leaving the Circle to become a Grey Warden, she even urged Keili to talk to her mentor about Tranquillity as an alternative to a life of magic. If this is baffling (or simply downright horrifying) to you, I’ve explained why Bree is this way below.
