sleep gets in your eyes
Inspired by a lovely comment-fic alocine_89 recently wrote me at dante_s_hell's Kissing, Cuddling, Nuzzling, Wrap-You-Up-in-My-Clothes Comment Meme! for the prompt "De-aged!Dean + giant!Sam. SNUGGLES." - here's a rec post full of de-aged!Dean!

I made another massive de-aged!Dean rec post back in September, btw, which can be found here. This is a selection of fics that are new or new to me since then!

If you have any other similarly themed recs, (or self-recs), please leave them in the comments to this post so that others can check them out.


Sugar Shock by embroiderama
Author’s notes/summary: Sam doesn't know how much sugar is too much when it comes to de-aged!Dean. 838 words. PG, gen.

Reccer's notes: This is precious – not in a too cutsey way – just, really damn adorable. Also, I love pukey!Dean way too much. Sorry, Dean.

Tags: age regression (physical and mental), curse/spell, nausea/vomiting

Wee!Winchester snippet by janissa11
Author’s notes/summary: Written for the prompt - "De-aged Dean retains his adult consciousness and is not pleased with this turn of events. This results in Sam looking like the worst "dad" ever in public. Bonus points if wee Dean gets himself drunk." Snippet!fic, gen.

Reccer's notes: This is separate from her Under The Haystack ‘verse (which is one of the best examples of de-aged!Dean out there for me) but completely fabulous also. I love that Sam reacts better to being attacked by monsters on a daily basis than he does to his brother being mini-me’d. Of course, de-aged!Dean IS a little hooligan.

Little by kellifer_fic
Author’s notes/summary: So there's this curse that neither of them ever talk about. 703 words. PG, gen.

Reccer's notes: This is short, but packs so much awesome in. Sam teasing Dean is awesome, wee, cranky!Dean is awesome, and... you get the point. There’s lots of awesome to go around.

Tags: age regression (physical), crying!Dean, curse/spell

Exchange Rate by lori_leaf
Author’s notes/summary: There's something funny going on in those woods. Dean goes in as a 26 year old hunter and comes out as a traumatized 7 year old. What John can't figure out is how a 7 year old learned how to draw a perfect Devils Trap when his Dean has never seen one before. R, gen AU.

Reccer's notes: This isn’t a de-aged!Dean fic in the classic sense – it features a child (wee!Dean) from a post-apocalyptic type universe, switching places with our Dean. The child version of Dean is traumatized and distrustful of all things in a way that feels real and heartbreaking and I’m very drawn to this idea of feral child!Dean. I feel like his actual childhood produced the same thing on a much less extreme level.

Righteous Dollar Bills by mummyluvr314
Author's notes/summary: When Castiel woke on Dean Winchester rack to find a green-eyed boy staring at him, he realized his mission was far from over. 3470 words. R for scenes of torture. Dean, Castiel, Alistair, gen.

Reccer’s notes: In which Castiel comes across Dean’s child self in the pit. This is disturbing in the best possible way, and I found the concept to be really unique and interesting.

Tags: age regression (physical and mental), daddy issues, torture, post-hell issues, psychological trauma/damage, stockholm syndrome

Little, Brothers by paxlux @ huntersarchives
Author’s notes/summary: The quiet makes him restless because he just knows that something is happening somewhere and it ain't good. 10,047 words. PG-13. Sam, Dean, Bobby, brief OFC. Gen.

Reccer's notes: In which both Sam and Dean are physically de-aged, and Bobby is awesome and helps them out. After he finishes laughing at them, that is! I like that them being bite-sized again brings issues from their earlier years to the forefront in a believable way, and that the boys stay very much themselves throughout.

Something Obvious by rainylemons
Author’s notes/summary: Written for the prompt: "De-aged!Dean wants HUGS. Sam is... freaked out? Obliging? It's up to you!" Spoilers: Up to 5x16. 3400 words. PG. Sam, Dean, gen.

Reccer's notes: This was totally written for one of my prompts, and I just adore it. The idea of Sam carrying wee!Dean around on his shoulders is ♥.

Tags: age regression (physical and mental), bed sharing, curse/spell, hugs/cuddling, nightmares

Snot Funny, Sam by roque_clasique
Author’s notes/summary: Physically age-regressed Dean gets sick, and Sam frets. Also, Dean is fucking cute. Gen.

Reccer's notes: This was written for one of my prompts too, (and originally posted at our first Dean-focused h/c meme) so maybe I’m kind of biased when I say it’s the cutest freaking thing ever. Orrrr maybe it’s just the cutest freaking thing ever! ::cuddles fic::

Tags: age regression (physical), cold, cough, curse/spell, fever

Dream a Little Dream by tir_synni
Author’s notes/summary: The last thing Dean remembered was Bobby’s yard. The next thing he knew, his dad and brother were there, and he was screaming. Warning: Dark content, graphic content, spoilers for 5.14. R, gen.

Reccer’s notes: In which Dean is thrown back in time, and back into his 22 year old body, where teen!Sammy hasn’t yet left for Stanford and dad is still alive. Dean’s season 5 era profound desperation come through so well here. It never QUITE hit me until I read this how innocent Sam and Dean were, comparatively, at the beginning of the series. Oh, boys.

Eat Me, Drink Me and missing scene from Eat Me, Drink Me by zoemathemata
Author’s notes/summary: De-aged!Dean at Christmas-time! Set at least before the end of season three. PG, gen.

Reccer's notes: This was written for one of my prompts TOO, I believe at spnhurtcomfort's Christmasy comment-fic meme. I have a THING, okay?

It's really great, anyway. Wee, mute!Dean breaks my heart.

Tags: age regression (physical and mental), curse/spell, mutism


Untitled by mooooong
Artist's notes: Wee!Dean. G, gen.

Reccer's notes: I recced a de-aged!Dean piece by mooooong last time around, but somehow missed this one, which is just as unbearably cute. His stick-uppy haaiiiiir.

Tags: age regression (physical), crying!Dean

ALSO, there are bunches of A+ de-aged!Dean comment-fics at our comment-fic memes, and one was written for our latest challenge, A Dean-focused SCHMOOPFEST, as well.

Brother's Role at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2973209/1/Brothers_Role wherein Dean is de-aged but still remembers who he is. Protective!Sam, hurt Dean, some action, gen.

I really like Herding angels by kasmodia. It's Sam/Dean, and Sam/Dean/Castiel, but only after they're big again. Here's the link:
