Something evil is afoot in a small rural town in Midwestern America, and it’s up to Sam and Dean to find out what. With the help of a small woman named Zepheera, they’ll do their best to save the town and Zepheera’s time-travelling alien friend from the greatest evil the Winchesters have ever faced.

This is a contest entry for @nightmares06. It features characters from my Doctor Who/Borrowers crossover series ‘Borrowed Time (and Space)’ with a little tweak in Zepheera’s size to put her to Sam’s scale. This is not canon for BTAS and takes place sometime before Taken in Brothers Apart.

The
silence between them was broken by Zepheera, who peeked around the console at
the brooding men. “Sorry,” she piped up, “But I think I have something that’ll
help.”

Without
waiting for permission to share, she approached Dean and thrust a pair of
glasses onto his face. Dean blinked in surprise. The square lenses were fake,
but it was certainly the last thing Dean expected Zepheera to do.

“How
do you know it’s the Star?” asked Dean, voice rough from sleep. Sam sat on
his shoulder, looking just as disheveled as his brother and slightly more
alert. But not by much. Zepheera had just shown them as much footage from the
scene as she could find on the local news sites.

“The
guy spontaneously combusted.”
Zepheera emphasized. “Blew up, out of nowhere. No other damage to the
apartment, so it couldn’t have been a bomb. And the poor kid was on the phone
with his sister when it happened.”

“So
we have a possible witness,” Sam chimed in.

Zepheera
had recently been plagued by nightmares so hellish they’d wake her up several
times in the night. Sometimes she dreamt of the terrible things the Wage Star
was making the townspeople do to each other; she had a childhood encounter with
an alien to thank for psychic dreams such as these. But often, she dreamt about
the Doctor…about waking up to find him not breathing. Dreams like this were
much too similar to the other kind, and they either kept her awake or brought
her sleep to a screeching halt.

But
for the first time in days, the borrower woke up the next morning feeling
well-rested. Ordinarily, she would be so groggy that she could barely function
without a cup of tea. Last night’s events must have alleviated more stress than
she thought, because as she sat up and stretched herself fully alert she
couldn’t recall one time her sleep had been interrupted.

Zepheera
combed her fingers through her tousled bob, and her gaze dropped down and over
to find the Doctor. “Morning, old man,” she mumbled as usual.

This story is for the contest going on over at @brothersapart​. Fans of gt and/or supernatural should give that blog a look, because there’s some quality writing of both over there. The contest has already attracted some really awesome entries, too! I’m adding mine into the fray.

The story is a slight AU of the Brothers Apart series. It takes place the night before Sam is cursed and shrunk by the witch.


Walt stared up at Sam, and then at the digit extended towards him. He had no idea what he was supposed to do, but Sam’s enthusiasm for the gesture made him feel like he was supposed to do something. So, tentatively, wishing he wasn’t so monumentally stupid for staying when he could be running for cover, Walt reached out a hand. It was shaking, with a fear in the back of his mind that Sam would change his mind and snatch him up again. Humans could be fickle like that.

Sam waited patiently as Walt reached out. Eventually, his hand brushed against the tip of the boy’s finger. Before he could draw it away again, Sam curled the finger towards himself a little, and Walt nearly stumbled as his hand was pulled gently along.

Then, without grabbing or even looking like he planned to, Sam drew his hand away again. Walt stepped back and kept the boy’s face in his sight, still wearing a cautious, stern expression.

There was a pause that nearly became awkward before Walt spoke up again. “I need to go home now,” he said, watching the human’s face carefully. If Sam looked upset or like he might not want Walt to leave, he was ready to bolt.

Sam was full of more surprises. He didn’t even protest Walt’s assertion. Instead, he nodded. “Okay, Walt,” he replied. Then, he bit his lip, thinking hard about something. “If you want,” he spoke up again, “you could come and visit me again maybe. I think we’re staying here for a little bit while my dad … works. Since we’re friends now I’ll remember not to grab or anything!”

Walt pursed his lips, seeing the hopefulness in every inch of Sam’s bearing. “I’ll think about it,” he replied, taking several steps backwards and towards the bed. Sam watched him go, that hopeful look remaining.

When Walt finally turned to dart away under the bed, he thought to himself that he just might come and at least check on the kid the following night. He didn’t plan to reveal himself again, not to a human. Even one who had let him go once could always change his mind later.

But he might at least come to see.
