Title: Truth or Consequences
Word count: ~61,000
Pairings: Sam/Dean, other het and femslash side pairings
Warnings: incest (of the Sam/Dean variety), angst, humor, multiple OCs, kidfic
Rating: R for language, gore, and upsetting themes
Summary: Two decades of Important Parenting Moments, ghosts, demons, birthday parties, real apartments, Truth or Consequences (which is a city, not a game – you’re thinking of Truth or Dare), and goddamn vampires (of the unsparkly variety).
Story notes: If you HAVE NOT read The Family Business: I tried to make this story make sense anyway, but I didn’t go crazy re-explaining everything, so it will help if you read that story first – it’s not long!
If you HAVE read The Family Business: Funny story. TFB ends on Isabel’s first birthday. This story starts on Isabel’s first birthday… two months after the end of TFB. Oops? *uncertain grin* I had a timeline fail. Let’s just all pretend that TFB ends when Isabel is ten months old, ‘kay? And we’ll all be much happier. *facepalm*
Either way: This takes off as an AU from late-season-2, early-season-3 canon, minus Dean’s deal.
THANK YOU Captain T for posting your own birthday story 10 freaking months late, alasse for an awesome beta job and kind encouragement, davincisgirl for your lovely art, and most of all, laulan, for making this story thousands of words longer (D:) and a million times better (:D).
