summary. Sam and Dean could use a break after banishing God’s sister to the far reaches of oblivion. However, a new case drops into their laps when they receive a message sent to the Men of Letters using a strange old code. The name Campbell makes it impossible for them to refuse. The hunt takes the Winchesters back to Charleston, South Carolina, a city they haven’t been through in almost twenty years. It plunges them into the obscure and bloody history of an old plantation where ghost sightings and a consuming madness mean the clock is ticking.

Using every resource they have, including the help of the last Campbell ancestor in the South, the testimony of a powerless ghost, and the expertise of a handsome young historian, Sam and Dean need to uncover the truth behind the haunting before it claims another innocent victim. Based on the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper.

Be sure and head over to [ profile] stormbrite's art post for all of the graphics that go along with the story!
Written for the 2016 Round of [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang.

notes. This story is set in an imagined Season 12 and thoroughly ignores the majority of Season 11. In my version, Chuck never got involved, they were able to banish Lucifer again, and Sam and Dean were forced to find a way to lock Amara back in her cage. This was my attempt at writing an ‘episode’ of Supernatural.

While technically a sequel to my pre-series story, Don’t Let it Ride You, this can be read as a stand-alone. All you need to know is that Dean and Sam’s relationship ended when Sam left for Stanford and hasn’t resumed.

The Yellow Wallpaper is a short story penned by American author Charlotte Perkins Gilman and it is fabulous. A must read.

thanks. This story sprung from a road trip I took with [ profile] dugindeep and [ profile] cherie_morte after JaxCon, so I need to thank them for encouraging this in the first place! I love writing about Charleston, so this story is yet another homage to my city.

So much gratitude goes to [ profile] lavishsqualor for the time and effort she put in as a beta for this story! Dealing with adjusted posting dates, working hard, and helping make this story so much better! And also to [ profile] dugindeep again for reading very early versions of the draft and assuring me it wasn’t total crap.

To everyone on Team Procrastination who spent long hours sprinting and listening to ideas, and everyone on Twitter who told me not to give up when circumstances in my personal life got really bad, and I almost couldn’t post. Thank you for putting up with me :)

And to [ profile] stormbrite for her art! Spending so much more time than I could have hoped for creating materials and getting the details just right! And of course for also putting up with date changes and frantic emails. Thank you! Check out her stuff, and LEAVE HER LOVE.

Thank you to Wendy, of course, for working around some last-minute scheduling difficulties and for running yet another successful Big Bang challenge!
