Summary: They’d tried running; always moving, chasing one hunt after another, but it didn’t help so they decided to stand still for a while. Even standing still doesn’t help them run from their past.
Characters: Dean, Sam, Bobby, Castiel
Disclaimer: Based on characters created by Eric Kripke, I play with them for fun not profit.

AN: There were two major inspirations for this story. One, Sam's revelation at the end of Sam, Interrupted. It was the first time he'd acknowledged that most of his anger was pointless and that it helped no one, especially not himself. I thought it was a big turning point for him and I'm sorry the writer's didn't (get a chance to) explore this futher. The second inspiration was hearing Everlast's cover of Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues and having this instant picture in my head of how Dean would react. This is my attempt to blend these two, completely disparate ideas, into one entity. I hope you enjoy it. [25 Oct 2010]
The brutality of the attack was stunning.
