Warnings: Spoilers for Season 9, First Born

Summary: Crowley is smug, Dean is probably doomed. Things are working out better than Crowley expected.


Crowley's feeling something akin to contentment. Finding that the First Blade was inextricably linked to Cain was both terrifying and unexpected, but as it turned out, it handed him a weapon even more deadly than he'd ever hoped for.

Dean Winchester carrying the Mark.

Crowley smiles. No more need for flannel, no more kowtowing to lesser demons. Dean Winchester is going to be the blade in Crowley's hand when Abaddon bows her pretty red head to the true King of Hell.

"What are you grinning about?" Dean grumbles, but Crowley's smile doesn't falter.

"I'm the dog's bollocks, squirrel," he says.
