If Sam was to do the entire motel, it could easily take a month or more if he wanted to cover every possible place that littles could be. For his purposes, he will stick close to Dean’s room and look at the closest hallways. He’s checking for signs that anyone lives at the motel; small bootprints, signs that the inner wall has been modified to be more accessible, stuff like that.

He won’t ask to stay in a motel after their hunt is done unless he finds trace of his people.

April 4th excerpt:

Jacob offered a warm smile to the closest of the nestlings, still a few feet away from him. They perked up in surprise, as if they didn’t expect him to be able to see them wandering closer to him. Tiny wings, some of them still slightly curled at the edges, fluttered at their backs.

“Hi,” he greeted them, and the nestlings stumbled forward even more. Some that were on the opposite side of the stream set to work carefully hopping from stone to stone, avoiding the water. “Be careful over there,” Jacob warned them. He got a few sheepish grins in return and some approving nods from the parents who hung back to continue the washing.

“We’re always careful,” someone answered, and Jacob looked down to find that a nestling had reached him. He tensed up slightly, staring at the absolutely tiny child standing in the grass, well within reach of the arms he rested on his knees. “If someone fell in the stream, their wings would get so heavy!”

These excerpts are from #don, which is a future story in one of the AUs. No one has guessed the name yet, so it remains #don.

The reason we love this AU so much is it’ll be following both brothers as they grow up– completely separate! So Sam and Jacob will be growing up together, and Jacob’s parents will (of course) be involved in the storyline, since Jake’s only a wee 5 year old, not to mention Sam’s interaction with any friends that come around, if he’s allowed to see them. Then, Dean will run into Oscar on his own, and John Winchester will certainly be involved in their end. For the rest, we’ll have to wait and see!
