Six feet under
Summary: Dean escapes from the rack but not from Hell. He wanders and finds Lucifer's Cage and it looks like the ocean at sunrise.
Dean, Lucifer (the Morning Star), gen, 1,000 words, PG-13
Written for hoodie_time's Dean-focused hurt/comfort comment-fic meme, for this prompt by shi_mo. I'm pretty sure it's nowhere near what she imagined; hell, I'm not even sure if it's anywhere near coherent. But the prompt just wouldn't leave my head and it filled it with all these images of Hell based on Salvador Dalí's paintings and it had to be written. So, here it is I guess? I suggest you read the original prompt, it might explain a few things about this fic.
A little bit for the "symbolism" - I imagine Hell in Supernatural would be actually a little like Heaven in Supernatural, except the exact opposite. It would be made out of your biggest fears and regrets rather than happy memories, of course.
As for Lucifer's Cage, I don't see it as a box of sorts but as a universe of its own and I gave it the look of early morning, since Lucifer is the "light-bearer" and the Morning Star.
