Notes: I posted this as a oneshot a while back, but it's gained a lot of traction since then and has been updated quite a few times! Feel free to check it out on AO3 and fanfiction.net. Feedback is always welcome, thank you so much! It's a pretty dark universe, so heed any warnings included in the chapters!Summary:
An alternate universe where Sam is taken in 9x23, Dean lives through his ordeal with Metatron, and a lot of horrible things happen. Trapped in a fighting ring where hunters and monsters are pitted against each other, Sam just tries his best to survive and not completely lose himself in the process.Chapter eight added
— things get better. Sam carries on as best he can.Warnings this chapter:
suicidal ideation mentions, mental trauma. Full of juicy Sam angst."Sam takes up hunting, but animals. Not monsters. He likes it, likes to exist in a world people rarely touch. He grows some things. Poorly, but he does. He boils water and catches rabbit and chops up brains and makes a stew for a kitsune. It’s almost kind of funny. He apologizes mentally to whoever it belonged to. He hopes they understand, he doesn’t have time to check for the red dot on their driver’s license."READ ON AO3 | READ ON FANFICTION.NET
