Supernatural Fic: Faithful  
Posted to supernaturalfic

Title: Faithful
Pairing/Characters: Dean, Sam
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Faith, Pilot, Home
Summary: Sam watches Dean sleep (Missing Scene from Faith)
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Sam sneaks back into the hospital room, once he's sure Dean's asleep.

He knows for all Dean's bravado, his laugh in the face of danger act is just a charade.

Sam knows Dean is scared, knows his brother doesn't want to die.

The same will to live and to help others live that got them out of a burning house as kids lives on in Dean and Sam can not will not let that die.

Dean's face is ashen, the pallor of death already present even though the doctor said he has weeks left. Weeks... It's all just minutes, seconds to Sam - the space of a heartbeat - when he considers the idea of spending the rest of his life without his brother by his side.

One hand finds Dean's by itself, the other tentatively threads gently through his hair, caresses his face... actions Dean would never permit if he were awake.

"Mom left me. Dad left me. Jess left me. You can't leave... You can't..."

Words fail him and he rests his head on Dean's shoulder for a moment, listening to the quiet rhythm of his brother's breaths, trying not to think of them as being numbered.

"I'll find a way," Sam whispers. He places a kiss on his brother's forehead before he reluctantly tears himself away from his bedside.

He has people to call. He has research to do.

He has faith.

This piece was written as a bonus birthday ficlet for asemic, even though I'd already written her The Winter Tales series.

I promised her I'd watch every new SN episode in January and I was good to my word. Faith was really good (hello Darla!), but sorely lacking in Hurt/Comfort goodness. I thought I'd write in a tiny bit of my own.

Oh the irony! After I started writing SN fic I went looking for comms to post it on. Ends up one of them had a current challenge to write a missing scene fic! I was all excited until I found out it was for drabbles only. I had originally intended to write just a drabble to get my feet wet in the fandom, but Pitch Black and Faithful came out instead.

Now I guess I have to come up with a drabble as well. ;-) That's okay. I think Asylum has given me enough ideas for 100 words... /evil grin/
