Summary: Dean and Sam are born Donaciano and Samuel to Juan and Mary Winchester.

Reccer's notes: What if Sam and Dean were Mexican? This story really captures the essence of what it is to be the children of immigrants, caught between worlds. This is exacerbated in Sam and Dean’s case by being caught, not just between cultures, but between the world of the natural and the supernatural.

[Short excerpt]
Dean walks him to school his first day. Papá promised he’d be there, swore and swore as he played lotería with them at the table, using dried pinto beans to cover the pictures on the cards. Sam holds his brother’s hand and isn’t sure if he wants to go to school anymore, not without Dean. He’s had Dean with him his entire life, his whole vida, all of his años. The words spin around in his head, English and Spanish, mixing together and he can’t tell which is which half the time. Dean or Papá will look at him funny because he gets confused. It’s not his fault there’s only Dean and the English he learns from other people and the TV… He is Samuel Esteban Contrera Winchester, born from the proud and the bloodthirsty and the elegant, but he’s only five years old and those words go over his head like the clouds pass through the sky. “Am I speaking English or Spanish?”

Dean rolls his eyes.

“Eso es español.” Dean pauses, waits for it to sink in. “And this is English. Got it?”
“I was just checking.”
