Our Father, who art in Heaven
                                  Lucifer is risen.
Hallowed be thy name
                                           Sam. Sammy. We gotta go.
                                   Light. So much light. Death. So much death.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will-
                                            Dean- he’s coming.
Be done on earth
                                            Sam!
                                   Doors creaking, footsteps breaking, hearts hammering. Soundtrack of staccato rhythms. 
                                   Ba-da-bing, ba-da-bing-bang-fucking-boom.
As it is in Heaven
                                     Run.
Give us this day our daily bread
                                            Please Sam, run.
                                    Run, run, run, as fast as you can.
And forgive us our sins
                                    You can’t catch me I’m the King of the Damned.
                                            I’m so sorry Dean.
Oh God, forgive us our sins
                                    Tyres jolting, engine screaming, road short and unending.
Please…
                                    Christ, with bullet holes in his hands and a bleeding mouth on his side:
                                    Ripped asunder and scattered across a thousand stillborn skies.
I believe he screamed.
                                   One thousand, four hundred and fifty one miles from Maryland to South Dakota.
                                   Count them.
I believe in the Father, and in the Son
                                            You’re still my brother.
and in the broken, foul-mouthed Spirit.
                                            Wasn’t your fault, Sammy.
So forgive us our sins
                                    As He breaks, so shall It break.
And deliver us from evil.                    
                                    It wasn’t your fault.
Yes Dean- it was.
                                    No… it was mine.

Wow, very powerful! I particularly liked this line: Doors creaking, footsteps breaking, hearts hammering. Soundtrack of staccato rhythms. And this turn of phrase: a thousand stillborn skies.

I've been waiting for him to say that. ALL FRICKING 80-something minutes of screen time they had up to now. I've BEEN waiting and I HOPE for him he'll do it soon... or else.

I know! I haven't seen episode two yet (i'm planning on it tonight or tomorrow) but from what I know about episode three, I'm freaking out that Dean is NEVER, going to say it!
If he doesn't by mid season- I will find some way to punch him.
*crosses fingers and stokes the good luck statue*

And thanks for reading!

Oh you will just LOVE it, it's so cool, but I won't spoiler. Just that the title is a VERY very good hint. And I'm kinda mad at him right now... because it's all right and reason with the trust issues and such (notwithstanding that Dean kinda trusted Castiel over Sam as well...) And I can see why there would be a rift between them. But going there and letting Sam wallow in all the weight of the world on his shoulders without telling so much as a lick of 'oh btw Sammy you suck for setting Lucifer free, but you couldn't have really, if I hadn't broken the first seal you know...' THAT irks me. Makes Dean a self-righteous little wuss right now... and Sam reached out to him again and again. I think he's in denial... someone should club him over the head. HA.

I'll be first in line with a baseball bat. :)
But I agree about the denial. I noticed (cause I saw the episode- and you were right, I loved it)that in some places it was like Dean was saying what he thought he should say rather than what he wanted to- like when Sam was talking about leaving, there was that pause and then Dean says "yeah, i think that's best" or whatever and I thought hang on... look at you and your face all conflicted... you don't really mean that!
But Dean is Dean. And yes, he's a little self-righteous, and he's totally transferring his feelings rather than owning up to them- but that's Dean. And something's going to happen that will jolt that boy back to intelligence and back to Sam and we can have our brother's back.

I've actually read this a couple of times - you know, one that draws and repels at the same time? It's SO HARD to be reminded of and recognise the pain and anguish of both Sam and Dean. The prayer itself is an inherent part of me, so connecting the two hurts. It feels like hope is crushed by reality, or something......

Beautifully crafted, thank you!
