Summary: Sam's creates something that has a use for which it was never intended.
Note: Follows after my other stories about Sam picking up a hobby and if you haven't read those this probably won't make a heck of a lot of sense, so here they are: Sam's Addiction , It's Not Gay , It's a Manly Art.
( Multi-Purpose )
Genre: Gen, slight angst, a little humor
Summary: It's way too tight to fit anymore and he hasn’t tried to wear it in over a year, but he just can’t bring himself to throw it out.
A/N: Written to fill strgazr04's prompt at the Anything Goes: SPN Hellatus Comment-fic Meme : Sam's greyhound tshirt post s1. "Dude, why do you even still have that thing? There's no way it'll come close to fitting you now, Sammy." Dean doesn't notice the sentimental look that passes over Sam's face.
( T-shirts and Greyhounds )
Genre: gen/humor, outside POV
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Summary: Written for the Outsider POV Meme at spn_bigpretzel for a prompt by lolaann1 : You see a lot of weird characters when you're a cashier at Wal Mart, but she's never seen this: Two extremely banged up young men with an entire buggy filled with bags of rock salt and table salt. What's the deal with all the salt? And one of them is really cranky!
Sorry y'all -- this is un-beta'd and quickly written, so it more than likely breaks many rules of conventional English.
You also might be able to tell that I have worked as a cashier before and it is not a career I would wish on anyone.

The first one is from a prompt by purplecarpets :They're suffering through a horrible, evil heatwave, the A/C is dead, Dean's leg is in a cast all the way up to his knee (he might have a couple of broken-off pencils stuck in there, too) and seriously Sammy, stop hiding the remote control and for the love of God, no, please don't read stories to Dean, especially not if you found them on your summer reading list.

( Won't See 'em Again Till the 4th of July )
This second one is from lolaann1 's prompt: Some illegal fireworks,Bobby's salvage yard, two bored kids. What could possibly go wrong?

Summary: Dean and Cas are back to reunite with Sam, but they've still been gone for far longer than Sam would have liked.
A/N: This is a sequel to another post 7x23 story I wrote called El Jesús de la Montaña and reading that story first would be essential to understanding this one. I usually don't write sequels, but this one is more like it's just the next chapter I should have wrote with the first one.
*****I also want to give a big shout out and thank-you to ephemerall for beta'ing this and for being so encouraging and a great friend -- thanks, Hon!!!!!

Summary: Unlike many people, Sam's not a big fan of springtime -- not when his immune system is trying to kill him.
A/N: As I sniffle and sneeze my way through May, I couldn't help but be inspired by cowboyguy 's prompt at the ohsam comment fic meme which you can see here: http://ohsam.livejournal.com/456108.
Also, this was quickly written and un-beta'd so I apologize ahead of time for all of the mistakes.

Summary: Dean's expertise at field surgery is put to the test.
A/N: Written for a prompt by madebyme_x who wrote this for the ohsam comment fic meme: Without a hospital nearby, Dean is forced to carry out some emergency surgery on Sam (ie a chest tube or something equally as serious). Maybe Dean calls someone for advice and they guide him through it step by step or maybe he has to do some super fast research and he's all on his own.
Gen with plenty of h/c, freaked out Dean and maybe even some supportive Sam telling Dean everything will be OK and that he trusts his brother.
Warning: this unbeta'd and most likely a crime against the English language. Also, I'm not a medical expert by any stretch of the imagination and most of the medical stuff in this is completely made up, so don't try this at home, kids.

Summary: Can Bobby convince Sam and Dean that they aren't acting like themselves?
This was written for the spn_bigpretzel fic exchange and for jennytork who came up with this prompt: Semi-body swap -- Their skill sets get switched -- Suddenly Sam can do mechanical stuff and Dean is the knife wizard. Their personal likes and dislikes get switched too. And they DON'T REGISTER IT.
Special thanks to ficwriter1966 who beta'd this, gave me some great words of encouragement, and offered some super suggestions. My original first draft, well ... it rather sucked ... and she really gave me some great tips on how to improve it. Thanks!!!!
Also big thanks to quickreaver for her lovely art -- I feel so honored to have her talent added to this story! Check out the her art masterpost for this fic here: http://quickreaver.livejournal.com/

Title: Delayed Reaction
Rating: PG-13 (a few naughty words)
Category: Angst, H/C, hurt!Sam, angsty!Dean
Spoilers: 7x18 and 7x19
Word Count: ~5,000 (I know, it was gonna be a short tag, but I got a little carried away with the angst)
Summary: Sam's hurt, but neither he nor Dean notices -- there's just too many other things for them to think about. (tag to 7x19)
A/N: There's no beta for this, so I apologize ahead of time for all of the grammar mistakes you are about to read.
For khakigrrl who wrote this awesome prompt at ohsam:
Finally got to see 7.19 tonight, and I'm wondering where's the hurt/comfort missing scene fic about the consequences of the evil ghost guy reaching into Sam's chest and squeezing? The filming red shirts only took a second or two of that punishment longer to die.
I'm thinking Sam's admittedly-high pain tolerance comes from his centuries in the cage. Yes, Cas did take Hallucifer onto himself, but he couldn't cure Sam, and I think all those memories are still there bubbling under the surface. Sam tries not to think about it, so he hasn't yet realized that unless he's in all-consuming pain, he doesn't really notice injuries.
Something like slowly bleeding to death in the hours after the attack doesn't really register, what with the thoughts in his head about Bobby still being around and about how Dean's coping. At least, not until he starts coughing up blood.

Word Count: ~1800
Summary:All he can do is stand watch.
A/N: Sorry, this is unbeta'd and most likely a little confusing with my pronoun use.
This was written for the ohsam 7x17 comment fic meme and here is the prompt by brokenangel6662 :
Sam is wasting away, losing his mind, himself, to madness. Dean is barely holding together, spiraling faster with every dead end he finds to helping Sam. Bobby is helpless, only able to watch them deteriorate. Every name crossed off of Dean's list, every hallucination and freak out Sam has only breaks the hunter's heart more. Bonus if Bobby is utterly desperate to help Sam, frustrated at not being able to even touch him or offer comfort. Sam freaks again, yelling at Lucifer. Doctors swarm him and Bobby watches with tears in his eyes. As they pin Sam down, drug him, trap him, Bobby yells at the clearly empty space that had horrified Sam for Lucifer to leave him alone.

Title: I Don't Sleep, I Dream
Category: Angst, a weee bit of H/C
Spoilers: Tag to 7x17
Summary: Dean realizes just how strong his brother really is.
A/N: I know that there are plenty of tags and missing scenes to 'The Born Again Identity', but I had to write this after phx69 gave me some food for thought when she wrote this insightful meta:A wee Sam thought (SPOILERS FOR LAST EPISODE)
Also, this is unbeta'd and hastily written, so don't be surprised if this barely passes for English.
