Summary: What finally brought Dean off the rack
Symbols: _italics_

********

"Honestly," said Alastair as he looked at the naked human soul strapped to the rack. "You're beginning to bore me, Dean and it's only been thirty years."

"Oh, well, I'm so sorry." His sarcasm was still amusing. He could even manage it after his tongue had been torn out – a feat that had actually impressed Hell's Chief Torturer.

"I thought I'd try something new today." Alastair continued, lightly but painfully tweaking one of Dean's nipples between his nails.

"Fuck you!"

"Tsk! We've already done that. You've forgotten already? I'm hurt." Alastair smirked at the way Dean gulped and the muscles in his jaw twitched. "No, no – I have a gift for you."

"I don't want it."

"Tsk! You haven't seen it yet." Alastair gestured and the wall of the room opened to reveal another rack and another soul. "There you are. All yours."

The muscles in Dean's jaw jumped again. Alastair smirked. He knew Dean recognized the soul he was being offered. He saw the hatred flair in his face.

"Jake Talley." He whispered, leaning close to Dean's ear. "The man who brought you to where you are today. He stabbed your precious little brother in the back. This is all his fault. Just say yes and he's all yours. You can do anything to him you wish."

"Anything?" Dean whispered hoarsely.

"Anything and everything," Alastair purred.

He saw the green eyes darken to black and exalted. He had won.

"Yes," growled his newest apprentice.

Oh, holy crap. Oh, this.

You know, I'd been contemplating the fact that the souls Dean helped torment were baby killers and child rapers and people who left someone's daughter in burnt pieces scattered in some farmer's ditch ... but the point is, that Dean became worse than them.

But this? Shows just how Alastair could have made that final offer, giving Dean a target he could truly want to hurt. Oh, this just *hurts*. Oh, Dean. Oh, Dean.

Beautiful and terrible, m'lady.

Thank you. It was metas and Amnesty International and thinking about physical vs. psycological torture and demonic temptations. My imagination became a scary place.

I need to write about puppies now.

Dean really could use a puppy right now ... Writing about puppies might be theraputic for both of you. ;-)

Thank you.

Oh DAMN. I can so see this. Just as Dean went to Hell for Sam, it's sorta because of him that he turned and accepted Alistair's offer. So perfect, have mem'd.

Thank you. I'm glad it worked for you.

Oh, Ruth, this is so perfect. It's angsty and sad and so painful but also so fitting to the character. Wow, really. I'm really glad you went there. *needs to make a SPN icon

Love This Fic!!

Most excellent!!! I love this fic, because it is the first one to have Jake Talley in it. *loves on you* Everyone else has run the gambit between Bela and Gordon, while Dean doesn't like them I think Dean's soul would just burn for the chance to get at Jake. I also love the way you show the change in Dean....He saw the green eyes darken to black and exalted. He had won.....best line ever!

Re: Love This Fic!!

Thank you; I've seen a couple of the Bela fics and while I will agree that he despises her, it's more fangirl misogyne that would have him hating her.

But Jake? He saw him kill Sam - of course he would hate him!

I'm glad it worked for you.

Nice this is the first time I have seen this character be used to convince Dean to get of the rack. Very good choice.
just_ruth From: just_ruth Date: November 30th, 2008 05:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! To me, it was the only logical choice.
