|This journal is for seasons 1 & 2, possibly 3. It will not deal with current canon at all.
Sam Winchester wasn't raised in a normal family dynamic. Six months into the world and he lost his mother to a demon with yellow eyes. The bastard killed her right when she was in Sam's nursery, her body burning on the ceiling above his crib while Yellow Eyes dripped demon blood into Sam's mouth.
It was only because of his father, John, and his big brother, Dean, that he even survived. Dean carried him out to safety while his nursery bursy into flames.
After that, their father became a Hunter, and the boys never had a real home. They grew up in motel rooms and on the road, the nomadic lifestyle taking its toll on Sam when all he wanted was to be normal and away from demons and things that went bump in the night.
Of course, even when he managed to get in law at Stanford, he should have known the normalcy wouldn't last long. His girlfriend, Jess, died the same way as his mother, and his father went missing just around the same time. When Dean shows up looking for some help, Sam has to reluctantly agree. After all, it's personal now.
The effects of the demon blood he'd ingested as a child weren't known until later. Until they'd already lost their father to save Dean's life, and Sam started to get headaches. He's still not sure what it means for him, but apparently he can move objects with the power of his mind.
Normal might be the watchword, but it's never something he and Dean will ever have. At least they have each other.
Disclaimer: Sam Winchester belongs to Kripke, CW and Dean Winchester. He used to belong to Mary & John Winchester but they kinda died. If you haven't figured it out, this is an RP journal and shouldn't be taken seriously. No harm intended, just for fun and games. Jared Padalecki is his own person.
