This is about Dean's (and in a smaller way Cas's) time in Purgatory. It's dark, damp and visually stunning along the emotional toll it takes on poor Dean. The author's vision of Purgatory is wonderfully descriptive and I truly hope we get even some hint of this in the beginning of Season 8. Poor Dean suffers a lot (you know how much I love that!), but in the end of the story there's the brightness of hope and lots of brotherly love as well. :)
