Tag to Dean’s death scene
Sam’s big enough to admit his mistakes; Sam’s POV
Cradling Dean's broken, lifeless body against mine, I remember those furious words I'd spoken so long ago; words that prompted this miserable silo mentality we've both descended into.
I'd told Dean that I wouldn't help him if he died. He'd looked hurt; I'd felt justified.
But now I get it; I understand, and I desperately wish I could unsay those words.
A lifetime without Dean stretches before me and I can't face it. I want to die right now, right alongside him.
Gathering him closer, I want to occupy the same space; physics be damned.
I'll get him back.
Whatever it takes.
