3 Works in Renee Van Allen
In an alternate universe where there are two genders (male/female) and three designations (alpha/beta/omega) life could be better for an om. Federal and state laws are restrictive, making life for an unmated omega all but impossible to navigate.
Sam Campbell and Dean Winchester meet when Dean is enrolled with his younger brother, Adam, in a boarding school that trains alphas to be hunters. Adam and Dean's father, John, is a transient hunter while Sam's grandfather is a powerful official with the Federal Department of Hunters, but despite their differences the three young boys become friends. When Dean presents unexpectedly as an omega and is expelled, his friendship with Sam is fundamentally changed. Dean goes on to be a hunter and Sam goes off to college, returning to the life after a few years.
Now all grown up and active hunters themselves, Sam and Dean hate each other. Or do they...? One night, a hotel room, and a Lord of the Rings drinking game are about to change everything.
Please read the tags. This is (mostly) not domestic or fluffy.
tldr: My love letter to Sam and Dean Winchester (who are not related in this fic), complete with the happy ending the show will never give them.
Sam is a kind volunteer at a homeless shelter and soup kitchen, which gets its fair share of drifters. Clarence is an extremely well-educated Russian-born man who needs help. Sam gets to work meeting the man's basic needs, and all the while, they each begin to suspect the other has quite a story to tell. For one thing, Sam becomes convinced that Clarence is not even his real name.
Proving magic works.
