Summary: As a final FU to Dean, Chuck kills all his friends, then Sam. The next moment, Dean (with Sam’s dead body) gets sucked through a rift into an alternate universe where an alternate Sam has just lost his brother. Together, these two grief-stricken hunters find comfort in each other and, eventually, learn to find a way to live without their brothers, if only temporarily. Set sometime in the latter half of Season 15.
Warning: This is a deathfic. Sam stays dead and Dean has to find a way to go on without him. The ending is hopeful, if not happy. It’s my response to the finale, although most of it was written before that event.
