If the brothers got stuck in a djinn dream, what would their dreams be? Would it be different in the particular AUs?
It would certainly depend on the AU in question.
In Brothers Apart, Sam’s biggest issue is the fact that he blames himself for Mallory getting killed. Meanwhile, Dean wishes that Sam had never been cursed and definitely blames himself for not finding Sam before he was dragged from the room.
Every djinn dream would be different, and none of them would be perfect (djinn are so good at that). Like if Dean wished that he’d saved Sam in time, he might end up living in a different version AU… for instance, where he saves Sam at his own expense, or instead of leaving Sam behind, he’d see him and grab him.
Are stories like Brothers Saved and Brothers Together djinn dreams? Are we all in a djinn dream now?
Oh, hey. So I went back and looked in my old BA ideas, and apparently had a bit scripted out for Sam falling into a djinn dream, so have an old drabble!
It’s a bit short, but I like it.
“Dean!” Sam cries out, desperately running along the banister.
I have to reach him… have to help…
He almost doesn’t see the attack coming. A tattoo covered hand tries to sweep him from the railing and only misses when Sam dodges to the side at the last second. Another hand tries to snatch at him as Sam sees Dean rise up, using the distraction provided by his borrower-sized brother to grab the blood-soaked knife from where it fell during the struggle.
Even as Dean plunges his knife into the creature’s back, the fingers brush against Sam with an almost loving caress.
The world fades before he even realizes he’s falling.
“You haven’t had nightmares like this for years, Sam.” – Mallory in the dream.
