Predator becomes prey when something starts eating pedophiles. The thing is, the boys are stuck choosing between two types of evil. Once they find out what’s doing it, how much do the boys care, and which evil is lesser?
The plot bunny came from Red, and the excuse for going further came from Misha’s stranger danger vid. Horror, humor, and moral conundrums. Warnings: passing mention only of molestation and child rape (not involving the boys). PG-13, 4500 words.

“Justice is being served, here, Sam,” Riley said. “And I mean served, with barbecue sauce.”

Dean left. Sam frowned and kept working.
He frowned harder when Dean came back half an hour later with takeout bags of ribs.

I just love these beats of macabre humor that you incorporate as fitting to the characters and their individual responses to the ...err, details. Hee!

“Are you actually using barbecue sauce?” Dean said suddenly. Then he looked shocked that he’d even spoken.
Riley looked at him in a mixture of open shock and approval before he started to laugh. “Dude, have you tried the Jack Daniels brand? Their sauce is the shit. I love that stuff. It makes anything better.”
Dean didn’t want to, he really didn’t want to, but he started to laugh. Riley laughed along with him.
Sam froze in horror.

Yeah, that black comedy that I mentioned above? LMAO!!!

Shades of grey:

Win-win situation, Winchesters. I’m the ghoul of the future...

... They were essentially having lunch with a ghoul.

I love the conundrum presented here: fact of the matter is, the Winchesters HAVE started to make the occasional compromise with something evil/supernatural in the name of the bigger picture. This scenario fits a what-if possibility that SamnDean may run into the future. The Apocalypse has shaken up a lot of viewpoints and priorities. Change is inevitable, really. The fun question to ponder is who can adapt, and how or why.

I like it!

My sick sense of humor and I grinned way too much over this.

*happy sigh* Proof that you can write them doing anything and it'll be good.

Heh. I liked this. Sort of a dark humor, but it totally works. And I can see Sam and Dean really discussing a situation like this.

The BBQ sauce though was genius! Heh.

Oh, this was *too* fun. Just hilarious and perfect. I'm with Dean - let the ghoul hunt! :)

“Out,” Dean said. “Figure it out. You’re less manly and badass than I am, so you can --”


“Got a better plan?” Dean said.

Sam looked horrified and betrayed.


Sam got out of the car and started walking. He kept to the sidewalk that bordered the south side of the street, trying to look like he was just waiting for someone. He tried hands in pockets to look casual, then worried that it might look forced, and in his quest to not look suspicious, he looked incredibly suspicious.

*dies laughing*

Oooh that was all kinds of morally ambiguous! And disturbingly hilarious in places too! I feel like I need to take a shower.
