The reason I still love the show so much is because of the brotherly love- it’s no wonder that the two of them ending up immortal is one of my fave tropes. Add to that their continuing badassery and legendary-ness, and I have a bunch of recs that I hope y’all would like.
Title: The Book of Daniel
Word Count: 5039
Summary: When there's nothing left to believe in, believe in Winchesters. Future-fic, Legendary-Winchesters, post-Apocalyptic.
Comment: Very well-written with a sympathetic OMC from whom we see how much crazier the world has turned into. Sam and Dean are electric in this.
Title: The Legend Grows
Fandom: Supernatural (American TV show)
Rating: soft T
Pairing(s): Sam & Dean if you want there to be
Warnings: Those who enter too many legends become legends themselves in time. Future!fic.
Comments: The narrative reminds me of some fairytales I loved as a kid.
Title: Gather All Hunters, the Trumpet Calls
Rating: PG (bad language)
Characters: Sam, Dean and John
Word Count: 8384
Summary: Sam and Dean find out what eternity means for a Hunter.
Comment: I’m reccing two of Zannes stories here and this is the first. I loved the mix of the fae in the Supernatural world here.
Word Count: 3837
Summary: After the Lilian war. Part 16 of the Berserker series (click on the link to go the Masterpost)
Comment: The whole series is incredibly long so there’s actually a lot to read here. But I took two chapters in the story that perfectly fit in this selection of recs. They can standalone though without reading the whole verse. The verse can get dark at times but it’s an incredible journey - well worth the occasional stumbling in the dark.

Summary: Countless years after the first Demon War. Part 16 of the Berserker series (click on the link to go the Masterpost)
Comment: The second rec I have from the Berserker series. Loved the outside!pov in this chapter and how even many many years into the future, the boys still sound like themselves.
Title: All the Stars I've Loved
Word Count: 340
Summary: Legends all have to start somewhere. Future-fic, drabble. Title from 'Green Grass and High Tides', by The Outlaws.
Comments: Short and sweet but still very good.
Title: Old Gods Die in Autumn, Pagan Gods ‘Verse Part 1
Pairing: Sam/Dean (eventually)
Word Count: 1176
Summary: Tremendously long 'verse in which Sam and Dean become the gods of Spring after killing the gods of Winter in A Very Supernatural Christmas. Eventual crossover with Firefly in second story arc. For more specific chapter summaries, click on link.
Comment: This is the second story from Zannes on this list and one of my absolute favorites ever. Book 1 starts out as an AU of the show after Season 3. Book 2 is a crossover with Firefly. Book 3 is an interlude with 2 original characters (and Bobby/Ellen). Book 4 is a crossover with Dark Angel and Book 5 is a crossover with Star Gate (currently ongoing, almost finished). If you have a weekend or three to curl up with an AWESOME verse, you will not regret shacking up with this one.
Title: First Recollection
Pairing: Sam and Dean
Word Count: 5,946 words.
Summary: On learning to live forever.
Comments: This is slightly different from the other selections but I think it’s a good one to add so that we can see that sometimes immortality takes some getting used to.
Title: Dust in the Wind
Pairing: none, it's gen (Sam and Dean)
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Word Count: 3798
Summary: Future fic. Erm. Hard to explain. This is a crossover with American Gods, but you don't need to read that to understand what's going on.
Comment: Supernatural and American Gods - best combination ever. I think this could be the only ending I could accept for the show.
