Summary: As a final FU to Dean, Chuck kills all his friends, then Sam.

Together, these two grief-stricken hunters find comfort in each other and, eventually, learn to find a way to live without their brothers.
Author’s notes: The first 6K of this story was written before the finale. Once the finale happened, this story took a very different turn than what I had planned originally. Many thanks to my wonderful artist, bluefire986, to yohkobennington for the beta, and to the mods of the deanwbigbang for another year of Dean stories.
