Title: Time to Let Go
Author: zubeneschamali
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: mention of suicide
Word count: 3,110
Spoilers: through S9 mid-season hiatus
Summary: Sam's only been himself again for a few months when an old enemy threatens to end his life for good. Can he trust Dean to save him, or is it better to just let go?


A/N: Written for the ohsam prompt (full version here) of post-Gadreel Sam not trusting Dean even though his life is at stake. Also filling the "twenty-four hours to live" square on my trope_bingo card, which makes it a blackout bingo! \o/

NICE! Makes you hope Show understands a fraction of how important agency is...

Thank you!

I'm keeping my expectations low for the rest of the season...

Seriously awesome. This is how Sam deserves to be mad at Dean and I like how he pointed out that it was about Dean not Sam. It always is. Great Job.

Great story. Very true, what Sam said, about Dean and his choices/actions.

Oh man, you had me in tears...Totally understand Sam's POV...and Dean's acceptance that he has to let Sam decide is exactly what he needs to do but you broke my heart with his loyalty...Wish we'd get something like this for real...

ETA:

I just reread it because I figured I missed some of the nuances reading through my tears...and then I got here and starting tearing up again:

"I'm going to walk away, and I'm not coming back. So when I don't hear from you again, I can pretend that you're still out there somewhere, being pissed at me and never wanting to see me again. I won't know, and that's fine."

Followed by full-out bawling here:

"It can't be the best of anything if you're not there."

Thank god that Sam realized Dean really needs him!

*hands you a tissue* I wish we'd get something like this, too, but we'll have to wait and see...

Writers of the show should read this so that they would be able to get Sam and Dean right! You're so spot on!

I'm crying my eyes out ow... thanks


:-)

This was very cathartic to read..

my feels are all twisty now because of how things are REALLY going on in Season 9 right now..

*pouty face*

I wish that Dean would actually get why what he did was wrong and I wish he would actually apologize for pretty much taking away Sam's Free Will for weeks just so 'Ezekiel' (Gadreel) could fully "heal" him...

Ugh... Season 9 has been the most emotionally frustrating Season EVER.. I want the Sam and Dean that WE all know and love back!!

*cries*

Thanks, I think!

I figure we're not going to get what we want out of this season, but that's what fanfic is for, right?

Wow, this was powerful. If only Dean would understand the need to give Sam the choice. Very well done.

I wish that so hard but I doubt we'll ever get it. :( Still, that's why we have fic, right?
