Summary: Not long after his run-in with Famine, Dean breaks down and prays for help. It's not God who answers. Michael appears before him and instantly changes everything Dean thought he knew about the Apocalypse.

A few days later, Sam wakes up alone in Bells Pond, Nebraska -- a far cry from the drab motel room in Tennessee where he fell asleep. Without Dean, Sam explores his desolate surroundings and discovers that the town lies in ruins thanks to a demonic event. It becomes clear that Sam's not as alone as he thought, nor can he escape from his strange prison. He fights against the power holding him there, afraid every day that Lucifer will hunt him down and force him to say yes. The Apocalypse continues to rage outside of his isolated world and Sam fears for his brother's life. As time drags on, and as Lucifer takes Sam to ever more seductive places in his dreams, Sam realizes that the people of Bells Pond may provide the key to everything he's been searching for but never thought he'd find. And waiting in the future is an unforeseen miracle, if Sam can last that long.

notes.



I'd like to extend my deepest apologies to the residents of Nebraska. I'm sure y'all are lovely people. To make this fic, I procured a very large glass and added the following ingredients: one part Supernatural, one part Castaway, one part Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, two parts refined insanity, and enough tequila to give it some bite. Shake and pour over psychotically, irrationally, and erotically co-dependent brothers. Serve with ice.

thanks.

This story would not have been possible without [livejournal.com profile] joans23. Her help, support, rationality, and friendship kept me going when I thought time was against me. We have a very special [and dysfunctional] relationship with Big Bangs. I am totally on board with writing RPS next year, m'dear. ♥

Of course, to [livejournal.com profile] alteredloc who rocked as an artist, producing a portfolio's worth of art for my little story and bringing so much enthusiasm to the process even though she had mono! I had so much fun acting as your art beta throughout this whole month, and I can honestly say some of your pieces inspired bits of this story. The snow-globe, finding the perfect picture of Sam, sneaking the Wanderer into your collages, and your DINER SIGN -- I could not be more thrilled with all the work you put into this, I'm freakin' giddy that we prevailed!

To my betas who stepped in nearly at the last minute and never shirked away. [livejournal.com profile] andreth47, who let nothing get through her net and remained calm even after I told her that yes, the story was due in two days. And [livejournal.com profile] auroraprimavera who helped so much with her enthusiasm up to the eleventh hour. Both caught some of the craziest foibles that would have made this story sound ridiculous if they hadn't been seen. Thank you both SO much.

To the Big Bang mods who made this challenge possible, thanks for all your hard work!

no thanks.

To the World Cup, which dragged me away from this story and woke me up really early in the morning. In the future, I will remember to factor in International sporting events before asking for my posting date. VIVA NETHERLANDS! VIVA GERMANY!
