Summary: (Set after season 2.) John comes back to find his boys… changed, affected by recent events (the opening of the Devil’s Gate, Dean’s deal, Sam’s death). He tries to make sense of what he sees, tries to reconnect, get along—but there are complications, things have changed. The boys have changed. John himself has changed. The Winchesters have to find a way to (literally) breach the gap between them and only time will tell if they can put the past and their differences aside to work on the present.
pleasebekidding for the wonderful art for this. I LOVE the banner, the composition, how she instinctively used two of my ALL TIME FAVORITE pics of my boys. She brought me stubble! When I was freaking out she sent me even more stubble and calmed me down. She helped a lot and I am SO happy I got her to do the art because she's obviously amazing at it! PAELLA, hun, so much you're gonna drown in it! Thank you SO MUCH for everything!
