A/N: And hereby ends this little tale. It took far too long to get this one out, mainly because I scrapped several pages of it and wrangled it quite a bit before getting it to come out the way I wanted. I do have material on the cutting room floor from some of these chapters I might end up posting as an extra at some point just for the heck of it, but for now here's the finis.

Thank you very much to all you lovely people who take and have taken the time to comment; it really makes my day. Much love to you all.

On the weekend, I learned how to make Granny Squares! I tried figuring it out from a book, but kept making mistakes. Once a month on Saturdays, one of the stores in my area has free drop-in crochet instruction, and I spent some time on it last August, but didn't quite get it. But now, it's finally clicked, and I can do it!

Instead of making more small squares, I'll keep making this one larger until I run out of yarn.

Reuben's Writing Challenge

To celebrate the anniversary of his adoption, Reuben is issuing a challenge.

... write a story of any length using these words
adoption
anniversary
lap
meeting
first
brother




Mama’s milk is warm, and every sip of it leaves me content. Her purrs rock me to sleep, and her gentle nudges tell me when to wake. A pile of small soft gingers cling to her fur. I follow her everywhere, in this place she calls home.

My dreams take me far away, to a cat who wants to play, and another who longs for comfort. Mama tells me that dreams are real, and so are goodbyes. She meows that I'm her little ball of light, the goodness in her heart. Strong hands lift me away, as I take one last look at her sweet amber eyes, tears dripping from my own.

This place is new, and doesn’t smell like home. But a kind lady lifts me up, and places me in her lap. I search her face, and mama is staring back at me. She gently places me down, and waits as I go to a meeting that’s already happened in my dreams.

A first sniff, a simple nose nudge, a comforting meow. New brothers greet me, tell me their stories. I will be here a long time, always ready to listen.

New mama says I’m adopted, that a year has passed. Anniversary tuna sits on my plate, surrounded by a circle of treats, and a circle of friends.

Author's Notes: My first attempt at Summergen! When I saw that my recipient was [profile] crowroad3, I was both overjoyed (because I'm such a huge fan) and horrified (because what could I write that would be worthy?) Thank you, my friend, for the fabulous prompts, and for being such an inspiration in general. Thanks also to the [community profile] spn_summergen mods for running this challenge, which I know takes much time and dedication and blood and sweat and tears, and to every other participant, for providing so much awesome gen fic and Art that I still haven't quite worked my way completely through, and thanks also to my darling speedy beta, [profile] manzanita_crow.
Synopsis: Something bad happens when you break a blood oath with a reaper. Sam and Dean have to fix it.


~~~

They leave the Impala at the Timber Lake Trailhead. Dean slams the trunk closed, shoulders his pack, and raises his eyebrows at Sam, as if to ask you sure about this? Sam shrugs. He's as sure as he'll ever be. It's not like there's anyone they can ask. Not like he has one of the most powerful witches in existence on speed dial any more. Not like there's any real way of knowing if this is going to work, if the weeks of sweat and blood prepping for this are actually going to pay off.

He unfolds the map and lays it across the trunk. "If we head straight east, we'll pick up Route 34 at Farview Curve, and we'll miss all this." Sam runs a finger along the switchback twists and hairpin turns of a section of Route 34. "Or we can go northeast, between these two creeks. It will take a little longer, since we'll have to backtrack some once we get to the road, but we won't have to cross a creek without a bridge."

Dean squints up at the cold morning sky, down at the frozen ground. Scuffs at the hard crust of snow with his boot. "Creek's probably frozen, don't you think?"

"Yeah. Okay. East it is." Sam folds the map and keeps his face neutral. Doesn't want to reveal how relieved he is that Dean actually... spoke. Contributed. Acted like he gives a shit, about this job or literally anything else. He threads his arms through the straps of his own pack, checks his compass, and starts down the slope away from the trailhead.

And now, let me put in a plug for the story that was written for my own prompt. After S10 ended with Dean killing Death, I got a plot bunny where Dean actually killed Sam, and Death put him away in the promised mysterious safe place, and then stuff happened. But I didn't know what to do with it, so I put it away and eventually submitted it as a Summergen prompt. [personal profile] tifaching ran with it and took it to some unexpected places and I don't want to give away any details, because I want you to experience the lovely way it unfolds. But I do want you to read it, because it's awesome! Please check out Message in a Bottle and show some love!
