This is kinda angsty, and I don't want to harsh anyone's squee or anything (yay hopeful episode, yay season 9), but I have a horrible feeling that Benny's about to get uber-boned in an episode coming soon. So I'm posting this before I get Jossed. Or...Carvered.
This is for alexadean
. A mere two months or so early (I'm so organised!).
Title: Junkie Refrain
Pairing: Sam/Dean, with light Dean/Benny
Word Count: 4,170
Warnings: Blood, biting (vampire), mentions of addiction, angst, dub-con (neither Dean nor Benny really want to be together...which will hopefully make sense in the context of the fic).
A/N: Sort of a sequel to Third Law
although that fic doesn't really have any relevance at all to this and you don't have to read it first (sucky sequel, huh?); they're probably only linked by their flavour of angst. But, in honour of the sooper sekrit bat cave, this ending's sort of fatalistically, tragically hopeful!
Summary: Dean knows plenty about addiction. So when Benny gets dangerously desperate, Dean helps him out. But it's a one-time thing; it has to be - because Dean came to terms with the monkey on his own back long ago. ( Forget drink and drugs or even being a blood junkie; there’s no compulsion in the world as irresistible and deadly as the one that’s ridden him raw since the day that scared, trusting little bundle was shoved into his arms.Collapse )
