Yikes, now I'm thinking about Sam getting caught in flashbacks from the Cage while they're torturing him. By the time Dean shows up Sam is pretty far gone, mumbling incoherently about how he's dead, they're all dead and nobody's coming for him this time. This is all followed, of course, by a large number of scenes involving hurt!Sam and caretaker!Dean where everyone gets the love and care and healing they need... Well, I just made myself sad and I need to go write fic immediately right now.
*whimpers* PLEASE TAG ME IF YOU WRITE IT. ♥ Also what if Mary was there for her huge youngest son and it was awkward and perfect? And maybe Cas too because I’m greedy? And Sam is drowned in love and they live happily ever after?
