Characters & Pairing(s):Sam, Cas, Gabriel, Jody, Claire, Alex, Dean
Rating: R
Word Count: 28K
Warnings: Warnings: Spoilers for 11.23: Alpha and Omega, past wincest.
Summary: Alternate ending for 11.23. Dean carries out the plan to suicide-bomb Amara, saving the world in the process. Just before he does, he makes Cas promise to stay with Sam, to "look after him and make sure he doesn't do anything stupid." After Dean's sacrifice, Sam is consumed with grief, going mad with desperation to get Dean back or die trying. In a last ditch effort to save Sam and make good on his promise to Dean, Castiel wipes Sam's memories of his brother, leaving Sam a broken shell of a man who can barely remember what he had for breakfast. This story assumes the London Men of Letters storyline doesn't happen, God has died or disappeared, and there is no Mary Winchester returned from the dead.
