A/Ns: Set season six, between The French Mistake and …And then there were none.
Story is mostly canon compliant, although Sam and Dean find out about pureblood werewolves earlier than in canon.
This story owes a debt of gratitude to the Angel episode The Ring…in case anyone thought it seemed a bit familiar!
Summary: When Dean disappears after a hunt in Montana, Sam will stop at nothing to find him. As he tears up the Mid-west looking for answers, Sam learns that it’s not only hunters who are disappearing; monsters are being kidnapped too.
Meanwhile, Dean awakes to find himself locked in a cell. Being held captive sucks, but he knows his brother will come for him soon. Until that happens, all he has to do is kill monsters in an arena. In front of an audience. Wearing sandals and a leather skirt.
It’s not as much fun as it sounds.
