Dimples ahoy!

It's May, and you know what that means...

Time to celebrate Sam's birthday and all the glorious ways to hurt and comfort him!

We got a bit of a late start (due to the COVID-19 kerfuffle), but here we are and we're going to try something a little different this year. AO3 has developed a way to host prompt memes that seems like it might practically run itself! You do need to have an AO3 account to leave prompts (and officially claim them); if you don't have an account but would like to start one, please drop us a DM and we'll hunt down an AO3 invitation for you. If you'd rather not use AO3, you can still visit there to pick a prompt and fill it on whatever platform you prefer. Eventually, we'll host a masterlist here for non-AO3 fills (as long as you let us know where they are)!

As with all our events, prompts can receive multiple fills. The more the merrier, no matter what! So with no further ado...

Fic: But my dreams, they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be


Title: But my dreams, they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be
Genre: Gen, hurt Sam
Length: About 3000 words
Rating: PG-13 for language
Characters: Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, Charlie Bradbury, Castiel
Synopsis: This takes place immediately after 10.18, "Book of the Damned," where the Styne family attacks the Winchesters and Charlie, and Sam stashes the Book of the Damned instead of burning it. Let's pretend that Sam was more seriously injured in the fight with the Stynes than anyone realized.
Notes: The theme of the 2018 ohsam birthday meme was Hurt vs. Comfort, in which we were invited to respond to a prompt and write either about the hurt, or the comfort. An anonymous poster made this request: "Gen. Dean hugs Sam hard to hold him in place while someone cauterizes the wound in Sam's back." I started to write it, realized I'd gone with stitches instead of cauterizing, got frustrated, and gave up. But now I'm back. (Oh, and since we were supposed to choose between angst or schmoop, guess which one I chose. Go on, guess.) And yes, the title is from "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who, which was featured in 10.18.
