Genre: Hurt/Comfort, kinda emotionally slashy between Sam & Cas but nothing explicit, references to past wincest
Pairings or Characters: Sam, Cas, Gabriel, Jody, Alex, Claire, Dean
Type of beta you'd like: I think I just need somebody to read it through to see if it makes sense. It's for the Sastiel Big Bang but the central relationship is more wincesty than I originally intended with lots of hallucinations and dreams. Does Sam feel in character? Grammar/spelling error help always appreciated, too, although I'm pretty good with that stuff mostly.
Length: 28,510-word stand-alone complete.
Short Summary: Alternate ending for 11.23. Dean carries out the plan to sacrifice himself by destroying Amara, saving the world in the process. Just before he does, he makes Cas promise to stay with Sam, to take care of him and stop him from "doing anything stupid." After Dean's death, Sam goes mad with grief. In a last ditch effort to save him and make good on his promise to Dean, Castiel wipes Sam's memories of his brother, leaving Sam a walking shell of a man who can barely remember what he had for breakfast. Sam's functioning, but existing isn't the same as living, and Sam can't shake the feeling that there's something missing. This story assumes the London Men of Letters storyline doesn't happen, God has died or disappeared, and there is no Mary Winchester returned from the dead.
Timeframe: Draft final deadline is November 26.
