Summary: Jerking off loudly to mess with Dean had lost its appeal a week and a half ago.

Reccer's notes: This is the AU I never knew I needed! John Winchester is a doomsday prepping survivalist who locks his kids in a bunker and leaves them. The claustrophobic premise was almost a little too much for me to handle at times, but counteragent does a masterful job capturing the brothers' relationship as they try to deal with what might very well be the end for them. I love salt_burn_porn for surprising gems like this one--a fully realized AU produced in only 24 hours!

[Short excerpt]Sam lost it, launched himself at Dean in an uncalculated attack. If he couldn’t hit Dad, he’d hit his brother, his brother who’d always taken up all the light in the room and way too much space in Sam’s mind and always, always done what Dad wanted. Dean had been a prepper since he was born, to hear him tell it, inventing new weapons (it’s a Crovel, Sammy. Five tools in one! Strikes down intruders and opens your beer afterward), experimenting with renewable food sources (Crickets just taste like nuts, I swear, Sammy) and following John Winchester through the hills and dales of crazytown, preparing for an unnamed but always impending apocalypse. Dean did it all with a smile, too. A grin for the daughters of seed merchants, a flash of easy camaraderie with Gordon, their munitions supplier, and a soft curve of pride at rare praise from his father. Sam was gonna wipe that smile off his damn face.
