Title: Old World Shadows
Characters: Sam, Dean
Word Count: ~8,950
Summary: Twenty-five years ago, Sam met a strange boy and followed him into the woods. But before Sam could find out what the boy wanted, Dean and his dad came back from a hunt and Sam had to leave. He never told anyone about the boy, but for months afterward he wondered what would have happened if he hadn't turned back. Eventually, the memory faded, though for years Sam still dreamed of the boy in the woods. Now, Sam has found reports from that same town of children going missing, so he and Dean are headed back to find answers once and for all.

After a couple years of missing out in art claims, I was finally able to come back to the SPN Reverse Bang. I knew as soon as I saw patchworksam's art that I wanted to write something for it - it was wonderfully spooky looking, and it was styled after one of my favorite video games. It's been awesome to collaborate with an artist again; I feel like that adds something special to the creative process.
I also need to thank my wonderful beta, Abbie, who caught my spelling and grammar mistakes and made sure that my sentences actually made sense to someone besides me. Her help has been invaluable.
