Summary: Season 3 AU: Sam continues to use the dream root after they finish the dreamwalking hunt in order to make his ability to control dreams stronger. He tells himself it's just to hone a skill he can use while hunting. As Dean's deal gets closer to coming due and Sam's nightmares become more and more vivid, however, it becomes an escape—until Sam walks into Dean's dream and everything changes. What started as a way to avoid bad dreams becomes a new connection between Sam and Dean, one so strong that even the distance between Earth and Hell can't keep them apart.
