A/N: this is just a random idea I had. The fisr two chapters are different "normal" versoins. By 'normal' I mean Mary didn't die, not necessarily "normal", if you know what I mean.
Normal Version 1: Happy
The Winchester's were just your typical, suburban family living an apple-pie life. John and Mary Winchester had been happily married for years, and had five kids.
There was their oldest, Dean; the protector. He was fiercely protective of his siblings, loved football, baseball, and sports in general. Dean also had a love of music, and learned guitar and piano, but the musical side of him never really went anywhere. Friends came easy to Dean. He had had numerous girlfriends, but finally met Lisa in college. They had fallen madly in love and gotten married. Soon after they were married, the couple had Ben. Now they have another on the way. Lisa is a stay-at-home mom, and Dean is a fireman. Just like he always wanted.
Sam is their second; the brain. He's always been a very academic kid. He's loved to read as long as Mary can remember. His domain was usually the library, but like his older brother Sam enjoyed sports. Sam played soccer and baseball. Friends weren't as easy for Sam as they were for Dean. A lot of the time he fit in better with Dean and his friends, just because Dean made sure he fit in. Of course, then all the girls befriended Sam for his "hot older brother". Sam didn't mind too much, though. Finally Sam found his crowd, and made close friends. He got a full ride to Stanford at eighteen. He met Jessica Moore in college, and now they're engaged.
Rachel is their third; the wild card. She has tried it all. She went from soccer to volleyball to field hockey to lacrosse to piano to writing to drawing and then she finally found out she loved guitar. Unlike Dean, Rachel decided to go somewhere with her love of music. She started a band in high school with a few of her friends, and they really went places. Now she is studying music at Texas University. One thing that John, Dean, and Sam are concerned about is that her rock and roll career may lead to a rock and roll lifestyle.
Then there's Hayden and Hadley, the twins. Unlike their older siblings, they've never had problems showing their feelings. If they were mad, they'd yell, if they were happy they were hyper, and if they were sad they showed it. The twins both want to be actors when they grow up and are working with their acting guild in high school.
Everything for the Winchester's has been perfect. Once a month, they have a big family dinner to get everyone together, which is precisely why Sam and Jessica were standing outside of the Winchester home in Lawrence, Kansas.
"Sam and Jessica are here!" Hadley called as she raced over to the front door to answer it. She ripped open the door. "Sam! Jessica!"
"Hey Hadley," Sam grinned at his youngest sister.
"Jessica, Sam, it is so nice to see you two," Mary greeted her son and his fiancée.
"Hey Mom," Sam hugged his mother. "Are we the first ones here?"
Mary nodded, "You are."
"No surprise there," Jessica giggled. "Sam is annoyingly punctual."
"Yeah, he's always been that way," Mary smiled. She invited her son and daughter-in-law inside. The two headed into the living room. John, Mary, Hayden, and Hadley also gathered in there.
"So, how's the play going?" Sam asked his younger siblings.
"Awesome," they said simultaneously.
"When is it again?" Sam asked.
"Two weeks from Friday," Hadley said.
"Maybe Jess and I could come into town to see it," Sam suggested.
"That'd be nice," Mary agreed. "We could make it a family event; have Dean, Lisa, Ben, and Rachel come too."
Hayden made a face, "Dean and Rachel will mock us mercilessly."
"Yeah," Hadley agreed.
"No they won't," Mary shook her head. "Your brother and sister will be very supportive of you."
"Or they'll make fun of how stupid we look," Hadley retorted. "It's set in the 1800s! I have to wear this stupid dress!"
"Yeah, it's very frilly, and I have to wear tights!" Hayden added. "I don't even want to imagine what Dean and Rachel will say."
Mary sighed. She had to admit her eldest son and her eldest daughter did tend to joke more than their siblings. She can't remember a time when Dean and Rachel didn't have some sarcastic comment to make.
"You wear tights?" John grinned. Sam and Jessica grinned too.
"Oh, John, stop it!" Mary giggled. The doorbell rang and the twins jumped up to get the door.
Hayden ripped the door open to see his brother, Lisa, and nephew.
"Dean's here!" Hadley called.
Dean grinned, "Hey!"
"Ben, give me a high-five," Hayden requested of the six-year-old. Ben smiled and gave him a high-five. The teen then raced Ben into the family room, closely followed by Dean, Lisa, and Hadley.
Dean greeted everyone and then sat next to Sam. Mary knew her two oldest have always been the closest. They usually had the same friends growing up and hung out much more than their younger siblings. While the twins shared a special bond, they had their own friends. You could never split Dean and Sam up, though. In fact, after he turned ten, Dean was the only one allowed to call Sam Sammy. Lisa sat on the other side of Dean, and Ben squirmed in between Hayden and Hadley.
"Dean, would you make fun of Hadley and Hayden if you saw them in a play set in the 1800s?" Sam asked.
"That depends; do you guys have to say eth at the end of every word?" Dean smirked.
Hadley glared at her older brother, but couldn't stifle a laugh, "No."
"Then I think I could manage not to," Dean replied.
"Then you should come to their play two weeks from Friday," Sam said. The twins silently cursed Sam.
"Ben, want to go play a game?" Hadley asked, hoping to escape this conversation.
"Yeah!" Ben agreed. Hayden, Hadley, and Ben raced up to the twins' room. A while later Rachel showed up, and everyone cracked jokes about how she's always late.
"Shut up!" Rachel cried out during dinner when Dean made another joke about how she's always late.
"Oh, am I offending you?" Dean joked, ruffling her hair. Rachel smacked Dean's arm away. Lisa giggled at her husband's antics.
Mary looked around the table, watching dean annoying Rachel, watching Hadley and Hayden talk to Ben and John, watching Jessica and Sam talking about something. She was very pleased with her family. The Winchester's happily ate dinner as a family.
