Summary: "The building blocks for Sam and Dean’s insane, twisted, and erotic codependency are two people very much in love and the lengths they would go to for each other. Their atoms are made up by the road, by shiny bright diners and smoky bars, by holding their breath when they pass by cemeteries in an attempt not to breathe in an evil spirit, unaware that they already have demons hiding in the recesses of their souls, planted there before they were even born." : A love story told in road maps, bars, and graveyard dirt.

Author’s Notes: So, this was my first time participating in the spn_j2_bigbang, and this is also my first published wincest fic! \o/ It’s been fabulous, and I’m kind of shell shocked that I’m finally posting.
Thanks go out to, firstly, my artist, marciaelena. She went above and beyond the call of duty and is also literally perfect. Make sure to check out her art, because it’s beautiful and captures the nature of Crushing Grip with amazing accuracy.
Next, my beta, tigertaoiseach, for being the greatest ever at what she does.
Also hengilas, as well as Glenda, for being awesome cheerleaders and putting up with me being all “READ THIS is it good??? what do you think??” every five minutes.
Lastly, to Calley, for pre-reading and dumping so many feelings in my tumblr ask box that tumblr wouldn’t let her leave asks anymore.
This story is an expansion on the canon universe, and therefore assumes you have (and relies upon you having) basic canon knowledge from seasons 1 - 5 by referencing the occurrence of canon events but essentially not elaborating on the details of their resolution. Everything that happens in canon also happens in this fic universe.
The title is a play on the title of Richard Siken's Crush, which all of the poetry quotes you see in the story are from, and it's meant to be representative of the hold that Sam and Dean have on each other, physically and metaphorically, which is basically the whole theme of the fic.
If you want to ask a question about my writing process, the story or the soundtrack, or to just flail about your Dean/Sam feelings with me, please leave a comment or drop me an ask! I like talking to people.
