  1. First time trying this here, hope I did it right. It is a 'fanfiction' set in the world of Supernatural. Beginning of Season 4.


    Everyone is a Moon

    Dean woke with a start, and looked around the dingy motel. It took a moment to register that it was real. The lumpy bed, Sam asleep on the other bed, the glowing digital clock. He was alive, again. He took several deep breaths before laying back into the flattened pillows. It was heaven by comparison, though that still would not let him sleep better. There were things he could never share with anyone, but that did not mean his mind would ever let him forget.
    Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.

  2. Night

    Grey wheat turned into a muddy ruin, the mud dragging me down with every step. I fell into black earth, the sack of food stuffs burst and sunk into the mood. I dragged myself up and gathered what tins and packets I could pull free of the black mud. The light was fading, clouds obscuring the orange ball of the setting sun at my back. I ran east across the field to the uncertain sanctuary of an abandoned farmhouse. Night, the mother of fear and mystery, was coming upon me. And with the dark came nightmare made flesh and bone.
