Title: Devil's Arcade
Rating: R (violence, language)
Summary: While still dealing with the aftermath of the wishing well, Sam and Dean are taken by a group of hunters who will stop at nothing to find out the truth about Sam's abilities and how Dean managed to come back from the dead.
Spoilers: Takes place after 4.08, "Wishful Thinking," with spoilers up to and including 4.10, "Heaven and Hell."
Disclaimer: Dude, if they were mine, the back seat of the Impala would have been put to use much earlier than the tenth episode of the fourth season. Sheesh.
A/N: This is the product of my successful 2008 NaNoWriMo attempt (which gives you an idea of how long this is...). Despite the eps that aired as I was writing it, I think it's still in canon if the reader cuts me some slack. The title is from Bruce Springsteen's beautiful song of the same name, and a soundtrack is provided throughout the story. Many thanks to DreamBrother for beta reading.
You said heroes are needed, so heroes get made
Somebody made a bet, somebody paid
