Summary: In a society where mechanical augmentation has become commonplace, Sam and Dean Winchester are resistance fighters waging a war against biotech magnate Dick Roman, of Roman Innovations. Forced to ally themselves with the very people responsible for the world they live in, the Winchesters must take desperate action to prevent a global power grab that could mean the end of everything, while battling their own demons and trying to hold onto the bond that’s always kept them together.

Reccer's notes: This is a fantastic retelling of season 7 with Dick Roman trying to rule the world through his company's cyborg upgrades. Those who've been given DEMON tech (like Meg) or LEVI enhancements are almost unstoppable, much like the supernatural characters on the show. It's gritty and dirty, faithful to where Sam and Dean were in season 7, and written in a wonderful noir style.

[Short excerpt]The bar takes up the width of a long, blunt, dead-ended street; a corridor of potholed dark and garbage-strewn sidewalk, overhung with girders and other detritus. It glows, like an oasis in the grey haze, and Dean doesn’t wanna dwell on the feeling that they’re returning someplace welcoming, the way the Roadhouse or Bobby’s place had been.
