Fic: Hedgehog Protection

Hedgehog Protection
Summary/Challenge: Dean went to Hell and was hauled out of Perdition only to be turned into a 4/5-year-old version of himself. This complicates the plans of both Heaven and Hell.
Reminder: Sam. Is. An. Addict.
Disclaimer: So not mine
Rating: teen-ish

“What are our options?” Bobby asked as all the protected ones found space in his house. They were safe, for now and ready for an extended stay.

“I could smite Samuel,” Castiel answered and it said something that Sensei Okada, Joel’s mother and Charli’s uncle and older sister didn’t flinch.

“NO!” Dean protested. “No smiting. Promise me.”

“I will not promise, Dean,” the angel told him. “Your guardianship was assigned to me by the Father. I will not make any promise that would require me to break my word to my Father or to you.”

“But he’s not a danger to me now. You don’t have to smite him now.”

“He is hurting you, here.” Castiel pressed his hand against Dean’s chest. “Your body is healthy and yet you hurt here. I do not understand but I will remove his influence from you.”

Dean held onto the angel’s hand. “If you kill Sammy, I’ll hurt worse here. You don’t want to make it worse, do you?”

“He is leading a demon to you and that demon will spread word of your location. He is endangering you.”

“Smite the demon,” Dean argued. “That won’t hurt me and it’ll protect me. It’ll give Sammy a chance to see the truth and stop the demon gossip.”

Castiel weighed the action against his rules and knowledge. “Samuel will react unexpectedly to the source of his addiction being destroyed. He will no longer remain as he is on the slow descent in the demon’s plans. His descent will either accelerate or stall. Either way, the stand-off will end.”

“I’ll take it.”

Castiel stared down at his charge. “If Samuel accelerates, I will smite him to protect you.”

Dean set his tiny jaw, an echo of the man he used to be and a foreshadowing of the man he would be again. “Sam won’t go evil. I’m going to save him.”

Castiel bowed to the child. “I will do as you ask forthwith.”


“It is done. Now we wait.”

Damn stubborn Winchesters!
Stupid Sam for someone so smart he sure was dumb! At least Dean even little can still turn Castiel to his way of thinking!
