Summary: It's not the end of the world, but when your world has a population of three, it sure as hell feels like it.Notes: Set pre-series, when the kids are in high school, through Stanford-era with alternating POVs. I'm very interested in the Winchester code of right and wrong, especially when the kids are younger--how John figures into it, and what they have to decide for themselves. I like organic kid-developed codes of conduct and I think Sam and Dean definitely had one for themselves.
Also, very much inspired by "I Believe" by Owen. The title and quoted lyrics come from this tune. I highly recommend opening it in another tab and listening while you read (if I may be so pushy)!
