Ficname: Self-Induced Psychosis
Genre: Angst, Gen
Spoilers: End of S3 and flashback seen in S4
Characters: Sam, Dean, imaginary!Dean, brief appearance by Ruby
Notes/Triggers: Suicidal ideation, near suicide attempt, discussions of mental illness, alcohol and drug use
Micro-Summary: A look at Sam after the end of S3.
Summary: Sam doesn't go crazy after Dean dies. At least not in the way he wants to. He wishes he was crazy: maybe if he was hallucinating, he could pretend that Dean was still here. Instead, he imagines up fake-hallucinations, a desperate attempt to hold on to the memory of his brother. Maybe if he pretends hard enough, he'll actually lose it: after all, he'd prefer life in a mental hospital with an imagined Dean to life without him.
Need Beta For: Clarity/Voice/Flow
