The blurb for this Supernatural fanfiction doesn't really give much hint of what Pain in the Head is about. So let me tell you.
This is a heartbreaking story about faith.
It's about living in death. And death in living.
It's about believing in eternity, only to be limited by reality.
I'm sure this isn't making much more sense than the blurb. But I've spent 8 hours reading this with red puffy eyes and a box of Kleenex that is almost empty. So let me try again...
Set sometime after the events of The Apocalypse (in which the Leviathans never occurred), Cas and Dean have settled into a life together. It's a (newly) established relationship between hunter and angel. Domestic bliss at its best.
But it all starts with a headache. And the story spirals into something shadowed in grief and heartbreak, all held together with a flimsy piece of tape called faith that things will work out in the end.
The story is well written. Great characterization. Well proofread.
I don't think I can say much more as I'm trying to make myself presentable for work (good luck with that). Luckily, I can just say it's just allergies. I'll probably edit this review to be more coherent later.
