The origin of Brothers Apart

Sam was hit with a witch’s curse when he was 10 and Dean was 14. Unable to find him or his attacker anywhere when the dust settled, John and Dean Winchester were eventually forced to give him up for dead. Unbeknownst to them, Sam was saved from the witch and adopted into a new family, and they’ve trained him to take care of himself as best he can in the world, and protected him from the witch’s gaze all these years. And someone very familiar will be staying at the motel he lives in, all unknowing. This sets off a chain of events that changes Sam’s life forever.


Brothers Apart started in 2014, and it was initially only going to be a single story arc, ending with Sam and Dean reunited and Sam’s curse broken. This changed when I made the discovery that Archive of Our Own actually allows writers to post stories as a part of a series, instead of the way Fanfiction and Deviantart make you post by story or by page.

This was the first moment where I realized that Brothers Apart didn’t have to end. It could… keep going, and suddenly I was full of ideas for follow-up stories and sequels, and we all know that it continued to develop from there!

A full list of the Brothers Apart storyline can be found at, and a full breakdown of all AUs can be found at

Stay tuned for more information about the stories during our 5th anniversary, including a few small peeks at the future! If you have any questions or ideas at all, be sure to send them in! We’re open for asks, submissions and prompts!

For anyone not caught up on the series, beware of possible spoilers!
