Status of work: Complete
Characters and/or pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Author's warnings, kinks & contents:[Click to read]Some gore, UST, powers!Sam, in-denial!Dean, angst (are we warning for angst now?), LOTS of minor character deaths (some of them off-screen, some of them on, most of them involving the aforementioned gore), inappropriate humor during stressful times, brief mentions of past Sam/Jess, past Dean/Cassie, past Dean/Lisa, alternating Sam and Dean POVs, and during the sexytimes: mild painplay, frottage, barebacking, aaaaand my super obvious rimming kink.
Length: 93,000
Summary: “When the infamous Winchester bad luck strikes twice in quick succession, Sam and Dean are forced to compete in the most brutal reality TV show ever created. After ten days of glamorous interviews and flammable costumes, they will be among twenty-four Tributes or ‘hunters’ forced to fight to the death. It’s impossible to escape the battlefield, hiding can only be temporary, and alliances within those dark, bloodstained woods last about as long as it takes for the other hunter to figure out how to use your weapons. And then kill you with them. All in all, rather terrible timing to realize you're developing inappropriate feelings for your brother.” A Sam/Dean AU based on the Hunger Games.

Reccer's notes: This fic is lively and exciting, funny in places while still managing to convey the horror of the Games. The two different source materials come together beautifully in this fusion, and it's perfectly cast. I particularly liked how Supernatural's angels and demons play the Gamesmakers, orchestrating the cruel events on the ground from their protected sphere.

[Short excerpt]So it was settled, then. He would die defending Sam, one way or another.

Even if, at the very end, the person he had to kill was himself.
