Has anyone read this yet? I like the art a lot. It makes me want to read the fic, but I want to know if it's worth spending time on since it's 16k...

Kinda? I skimmed most of the last chapter, anyway. I hardly ever do that but when I saw the warnings I wanted to be careful and was glad I did. The author has a very dreamy tone and it seems pretty subjective as to what actually happened. My understanding though is it's a take on the djinns from 6x01 only in this story, Dean had to kill a fake Sam to wake up. He does and then goes off to find the real Sam.

But keep in mind that I only read the final part. It felt uncomfortably like Dean might also just have gone crazy and killed S6!Sam, thinking S6!Sam wasn't his Sam. Not sure what's actually the case. But if you like dark fic that's twisty and mindbendy, you might give it a try.

That's exactly how you're supposed to take it, according to the author's notes: up to you as to whether or not it was the real Sam.

That's what I'd thought. DNW crazy!Dean murdering Sam personally, even if that's the read that felt the most realistic to me. That's not on the author or a sign that she isn't talented, that's just my personal preference. I can see a lot of people loving that story.

The art was fantastic, though.

ayrt

Thanks so much for your response! I finished this fic earlier today and I'm really glad I decided to read it. It's very atmospheric and suspenseful, and I think the author did a great job writing a dark casefic.

I'm also very satisfied with the ending. I think I'm leaning more towards the idea of Dean having gone nutso and killed Sam, but I also like how you can easily make an argument for the alternative.
