Valentine’s Day Sneak Peek

As a gift to my followers, have a sneak peek from a future Brothers Apart story!


Curled into a ball, Sam listened impatiently to the voices that echoed above him.

They had stumbled onto a case up by the Great Lakes one morning that had both of their spidey senses tingling. A man was found dead in his home while his wife was out. All doors locked, the alarm system armed and fully functional. The oddest part was his heart had stopped without warning (he was only 40). In the subsequent autopsy that had been run on the body, the doctors had found, of all things, a cupid’s arrow pin in his heart.

Like it had simply materialized there by magic.

Needless to say, the authorities were baffled. Dean was betting on a witch, and Sam wasn’t about to bet against him.

Which was why he was curled up into a ball, safely tucked in Dean’s hand and waiting for an opportunity to get out and search for the hexbag while Dean smooth-talked his way into the house.

He couldn’t help but squirm a little in place, trying to find a comfortable position as Dean walked into the house at last. The huge fingers cupped around his body flexed open a little at his struggles, giving him space.

Even as he gratefully shifted to a more comfortable position in the increasingly hot and enclosed area, one of the fingers he was leaning against twitched in what he recognized as Morse Code.

Bitch.

Smirking, Sam pounded out his own shorthand into the fingers with sharp punches, telling Dean off.

Jerk.

So get this, Sam and Dean are communicating by morse while interviewing a vic, but what they don’t know is that the vic knows morse code. The vic notices the actual fuck?! Who is he even talking to?? Are all FBIs like this? I guess I really am loosing it. Bonus question- are there any other characters who know morse code? Again, your stories are amazing and thank you so much for sharing them with all us :3

Could you imagine seeing someone just tapping out a conversation? With no one? Who’s that guy talking to, is this just a nervous habit? Then realizing that someone else might actually be tapping back… There’s more to this guy than meets the eye.

There actually is one other character who knows Morse (without learning it within the story context, which a few likely will!). John Watson knows it from his time serving, and used it a few times on cases during his time with Sherlock. How he puts this skill to use with the tiny bros remains to be seen!

It’s certainly the type of thing that’s right up Dean’s alley! He is the craftier of the brothers, and will put his mind to work on various problems that he runs across during his tiny tenure in Brothers Lost. In fact, long distance Morse Code is used in one of the various stories, but tiny Dean is not the one to do it!

One of the curse victims in our stories will come up with a solution to being able to see in the dark, because he’s had much less time to adapt to such black surroundings compared to Sam or Dean.
