You know the drill, right? Allow me to post a refresher:

Example A: “Sam, Dean, gen, set in season 2. Sam has a vision and passes out. Cue caring!Dean and limp!Sam.”

Scratch, written by lazy_daze: (gen, with background Sam/Dean) Sam has become nervous and jumpy about being touched, but he is also touch-deprived and craving contact. Dean gets that sex, or perhaps even a brotherly clap on the shoulder, isn't something Sam can do right now. So Dean gets Sam a cat. Sam gradually relaxes and moves back into human contact.
Charades, written by tattooeddevil: Sam gets sick and loses his voice.
Comfortably Numb, written by cherry916: AU after the boys' separation in season five. Sam and Dean run into each other at the grocery store, and it's robbed. Sam is shot.
Sam's Secret Desire, written by thoughtyouknewr: Sam & Dean rescue a kitten out of the rain. (Prompt paraphrased for the sake of brevity)
Guess What Day It Is?", written by tarotgal: Sam has a really really really bad cold. Dean makes him soup.
From the Outside, written by lissa_ann: 7.17 Outsider!POV for Sam in the psych ward.
Time Served, written by rainylemons: (gen, with background Sam/Cas) Okay, so having his little brother involved with an angel of the Lord is more than a bit weird, but whatever. Sam is a giant dork and Cas has always been on the nerdy side, and if Sam likes guys too, well, okay then. It's not like Dean is some asshat homophobe, and, well, Cas obviously makes him happy. Sammy deserves a little bit of peace after everything, and Sam doesn't get much of that, except when Cas is around, and Dean is definitely not going to begrudge him that.
Hero, written by nblaque_impala: Stanford era, Jess POV - kids are getting jumped on campus. Jess is dragged into the shadows and she's sure that she's about to become a campus rape statistic. Cue young Sam on crutches right about now. For a guy gimping and maybe with a broken rib or two? Utterly bad ass.
Erised, written by purplehrdwonder: It has become my unshakeable headcanon that Sam is a sekrit Harry Potter fan, and that Jess was the one who got him into it. So - anything, really. Jess gives Sam the first volume as a birthday present, or Sam & Jess go to one of the movies as a date, or Sam never wanted to see the final movie because it would mean that part of his life was truly over.
Boys Cry Tough, written by ephemerall: (WARNING: non-con, violence) When Sam was in Stanford He tried to join a fraternity to get ahead. The hazing got out of control and Sam was sexually assaulted/hurt/injured/traumatized. He can't call Dean or John so he turns to the only family he can. Bobby. Bobby heads straight out to look after him and opens up a GIGANTIC can of whupass on whoever hurt Sam.
Swing Shift, written by downjune: (Sam/Dean, PG-13) Post-7.17. Sam isn't dying of sleep-deprivation any more, but it seems like between the robo!time and his recent experience he's never going to get back to an ordinary relationship with sleep. His circadian rhythms are all off, he'll be insomniac for days and then crash, he's tired all the time.
Managing, written by shangrilada: Sam really does need all those meds the psych ward gave him after all...
The Care and Feeding of Sam Winchester, written by sleepykraken: Sam is really, seriously sick. Dean helps him through it with day-to-day stuff.
Brother Like You, written by leah_elisabeth: Sam and Dean are trapped in a cave. There's only so much food and water supply for one person, Dean's out of it most of the time. He has a severe concussion so he doesn't know the lengths Sam goes to to keep him alive. Sam himself is battling a busted leg that gets infected. When Dean awakens in the hospital, he now learns that Sam's fighting for his life all because he was trying to save Dean's. Cue really sick, weak Sam and guilty/protective Dean.
Lilac, written by tattooeddevil: Sam always gets down in the dumps in June, and one night Dean wants to know why and won't take no for an answer. Maybe he has to get Sam drunk to get him to talk. Turns out, Jess was pregnant when she was killed and their baby would have been born in June. Even though she was only a few weeks along, Sam had really been excited about fatherhood and every year he mourns for the child he never got to have. Dean comforts Sam while he grieves.
Of Little Brothers and Pointy Things, written by mamapranayama: Without a hospital nearby, Dean is forced to carry out some emergency surgery on Sam.
True Colors, written by annie46: After Hell, Sam is pretty screwed up. Drawing calms him down. Dean secretly saves the pictures. Or maybe it's a curtainfic and he puts them on the fridge proud-parent-style.
Never Over, written by familybizness: (Warning: descriptions of past non-con, torture) After he gets out of the hospital, Sam still has issues over Hell. He and Dean have a long overdue conversation about the sexual assault and torture that Sam went through in Hell.
Oasis, by nblaque_impala: Future fic, Gen - Sam's been wanting to hang it up for a while now. He doesn't know how to bring the subject up to Dean who's always got the next hunt ready, so he just soldiers on. They're recovering from a particularly nasty hunt as a guest of the elderly farmer's widow they've just saved when Dean summons him to the barn. Inside, Dean leads him to a mama cat trying in vain to reign in her three kittens. Dean says "pick one." Which is of course impractical, they can't have an animal cooped up in the car for days at a time. It takes Sam a little while to get what Dean's really saying.
Taller Means Smaller, Sometimes, by vanaynay67: Sam gets shrunk down to about six inches tall... then he gets sick.
I Am Happy When You Are, by maaldas: Mentally handicapped Sam sticks around with Bobby (or similar) while Dean goes off on a hunt. Sam misses him soooo much and is soooooo happy to see him when he gets back.
Blind Luck, by quickreaver: Sam is slowly going blind and it's not from something supernatural which means Dean can't fix it and oh crap!
F***ing Spring, by mamapranayama: Sam stops taking his allergy medicine on purpose. But Sam is also allergic to basically everything ever.
Splish, Splash, by cherry916: Sam hits his head and is bleeding. It's nothing serious, he doesn't need a hospital, but he does want the blood washed from his hair. Dean helps.
System, by ceedeeandco: Sam's powers come back. Then they go away. Then they come back again. Then they go away again. Back and forth, at odd intervals, rarely in exactly the same ways, forever -- like lupus flare-ups. Unless there's demon blood involved, they're painful, useless, and an all around massive pain in the tookus. Sam is frustrated that he keeps getting bouts of migraines for weeks at a time while he gets orbed out of digital photographs or commands cockroaches or involuntarily burns the socks off his feet, and Dean reassures him that it's okay, by bringing him ice packs and making fun of him.
Nothing But the Truth, by anonymous: Warning for non-con. Sam said he was ok after Plucky's but seeing clowns again dredges up old memories of a certain clown at Plucky's raping him in the bathroom. causes Sam to have nightmares, which makes him have to confess what happened all those years ago.
Sam Winchester and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Birthday, by la_lou_bear: It's meant to be a day to celebrate. Instead Sam's had the worse day EVER (cue any sort of hurt - bullies, baddies, broken bones). It's all made better by the best big brother ever...
First Step, by faege: Sam has a burn scar from some fire somewhere (take a pick, he's had a lot) on his arm/throat/face/chest/back somewhere that might be visible at some point without getting x-rated, and he's really, really self-conscious about it.
Crimson, by tattooeddevil: Season 2, attempted suicide: Sam is terrified he will turn evil. Dean has made it clear beyond a doubt that he's not going to kill him even if he does go darkside. They fight over it again and again [...] In the end Dean storms out, unable to bear seeing his brother any longer since what Sam asks of him makes him so incredibly angry. So with no chance that Dean will save the world from his brother, Sam decides to take care of that himself. Dean finds him in time.
Off-white, by tattooeddevil: Through some miscommunication between Dean and John, Sam is forgotten at school (middle or high school) and no one comes to pick him up. Normally, Sam wouldn't be too mad -- shit like that happens -- he just wishes it could have happened on a day where he didn't have to walk five miles back to their motel during a blinding snow storm -- he also wishes he had thought to bring a cell phone, a thicker coat, warmer boots, a pair of gloves and a clue as to how to find his way back because now that the snow is falling so heavily, he can't see where he is going -- getting more and more lost by the minute...
Run Your Fingers Through My Soul, by queerly_it_is: Sam/Cas, NC-17. Soul-fisting, round two. Or three. IDK Sam could be freaking out about Lucifer maybe not being really gone from him or he could require a routine check up. I don't care what the reason is; It won't take much to sell me on logistics. But soul-fisting, this time with Sam awake and aware and souled. And Cas soothing him through it and there can be awkward comfort-touches and/or Feel Better Sex.
Twenty-nine, by purplehrdwonder: It's Sam's birthday and Dean wants to celebrate. I mean, between the job, going to Hell and Castiel taking down The Wall, Sam should've been dead so many times and Dean wants to celebrate his brother still being alive for 29 years. But Sam's depressed because of all those things and the fact that he always thought that he and Jess would have married and had a couple of kids by now, don't forget that their mom was twenty-nine when she died and so was Dean. Cue awesome!BigBrother!Dean cheering Sam up with a day away from the hunt and the Leviathans. Maybe they hole up at Rufus' and they spend a day together as brothers and Dean tells Sam stories about their mom and life before YED killed her.
Lines, by thoughtyouknewr: So for some reason Dean is worried/angry/depressed and hits Sam... Again. For like, the tenth time on the show. But instead of sucking it up and keeping calm like he has before, Sam snaps and bursts into tears like a normal person would. After everything he's been through over the last 2 years he just can't handle it. Cue mega guilty and apologetic big bro.
Sad Little Boys and Puppy Dog Tails, by cherry916: Pre-teen Sam is staying with Bobby while John and Dean are on a hunt. They're longer than expected. Sam literally worries himself sick. He won't eat, or sleep, won't play outside, just hangs out by the gate in the cold waiting for the Impala, breaking Bobby's heart. But, of course keeps his feelings to himself. Unable to admit to Bobby that he's afraid his father and brother are dead.
Disappeared Among the Shady Blades by sylvia_locust: I want to see a 1st season character interact with season 7 Sam. Like, maybe Sarah Blake used her love of art to become an art therapist and runs into Sam in the mental hospital. And is shocked/horrified/grieved by what he's become.
Hope, by nblaque_impala: Curtain!fic. Sam volunteers at an animals shelter to help keep himself sane, and he always comes home to go on and on to Dean about this stupid dog he's apparently fallen in love with, making him smile more often than he has in years, so yeah, maybe Dean decided to adopt the goddamn dog already for the boy's birthday, sue him.
Conditioned Response, by killabeez: Sam trusted Cas. A lot. With his life and soul. With his brother's life and soul. So when Cas knocked the Wall down it was so completely unexpected, and now he's come to associate Cas touching him with that kind of pain. Cue Cas coming back (however AU way you do this, without him ending up incoherent in a psych ward) and seeing Sam flinch every time Cas comes near or focuses on him or anything, even during hunts when Cas is trying to heal a wound or something. And Sam forgives Cas, totally understands probably in ways no one else could, but he can't help how he reacts to him.
Solo Saxophone, by tarotgal: Dean is holed up in the motel room with a sprained ankle (or similar) while Sam has to do a salt and burn on his own. All night. In the rain. Sam comes down with one hell of a cold because of it. Dean (somewhat guiltily) frets and coddles and takes care of him.
