Artist: ses mercurial
Word Count: 8,700
Pairing: Sam/Dean but not at all explicit
Warnings: Canon minor character death
Author’s Notes: Not my characters, only my words. Written for the 2015 Kevin Big Bang. Title from “Estimated Prophet” by The Grateful Dead. Thank you so much for the timely and very useful as usual beta, amypond45.
Summary: A post season 7 AU where Kevin turns into a genuine prophecy-receiving Prophet while surviving his confinement with Crowley, all because he reads a certain set of paperbacks to get a break from translating the demon tablet. Once he’s reunited with the Winchester brothers, it’s hard to balance what he’s learned about their back-story with how they are now. He does his best to help them with insights of what’s coming for them, and what they’ve neglected to tell each other from their recent past.
