Title: Away from These Shores (11/?)
Summary: A simple hunt leaves Sam in an altered state no one seems able to explain – at first. Pulling him out of it is not nearly as easy as it should be, especially since Dean is dealing with his own trauma(s).
Triggers/warnings for this episode: Another character's past suicidal ideation (and then some) in one paragraph. Severe dissociation, post-trauma, flashbacks. Past violence & torture in hell and the Cage. Quick reference the Winchesters' painful upbringing.
Spoilers: The fic is standalone, but refers to the plot up to and including 8X01 here and there.
Disclaimer: Supernatural, its characters, plot lines etc. belong to their awesome creators. I am merely suggesting fun new ways in which those beloved characters could suffer and/or be comforted.
