Hi all this is my first fanfic posted on here so please be nice, and if you can't be nice please be constructive.
Firstly, thanks for reading.
Summary: Sam is staying with Bobby and his two nieces Tyler 28 & Grace 12 whilst he gets over the demon blood. Bobby's eldest Niece doesn't like the Winchester brothers, how will they get on? Will Tyler learn to like or even love them?
Secondly this is only going to be a short story and at the moment my intentions are for this to be a story about Sam staying with Bobby whilst Dean goes off and hunts, while Sam gets over the demon blood!
Oh and you know the drill I dont own Dean or Sam or Bobby.
Sometimes, Hero’s Need Saving.
Tyler was preparing dinner for herself, Bobby, Sam, Dean and Grace. Dean and Sam had arrived over two hours before and were filling Bobby in on their latest adventure of demons, ghosts and ghouls.
Tyler and her 12 year old sister, Grace, had been at their Uncle Bobby’s for 3 months now ever since Bobby had been told he would probably be wheelchair bound for the rest of his life. Bobby had no other family so Tyler had no other choice but to uproot her sister from school and her friends and bring her to Bobby’s to take care of him.
Grace thought it was amazing, the best thing ever! She loved her Uncle Bobby. When Bobby first called Tyler and asked her to come and live with him for a while to help him out Tyler had had no other choice than to explain to Grace that the Supernatural books she loved so much and demons and evil were real, that things that go bump in the night were real.
Grace had surprised her and told her that she had read all of Uncle Bobby’s letters to Tyler keeping her updated on the hunting world and about Dean and Sam, so Grace already knew that demons were real but wanted Tyler to tell her when she was ready.
It was a huge weight off Tyler’s shoulders but she still resented the fact that Grace wasn’t allowed to be an innocent child the way she should be, she couldn’t have the childhood Tyler, Dean and Sam missed out on.
Tyler walked in to the main room where Sam was in the middle of a demonstration of how he had killed the latest evil thing. “I’m gonna go pick up Grace from school” Tyler began putting on her coat
“I’ll go get her, could do with some fresh air” Bobby replied. Although Bobby was in a wheelchair he, Dean and Sam had managed to ‘customise’ a car in order for him not to use his feet.
“No you stay here, catch up with the boys” Tyler insisted
“Its fine they’ll be here for a few days anyway”
Great! Tyler thought but didn’t say. “Grab some beers from the store on your way back” Tyler told him retreating to the kitchen.
Dean and Sam had made the house more accessible for Bobby and his chair, which Tyler was thankful for as she didn’t want to have to do it, although in the three months she had been there she had tidied up a lot, books were now in a book case, tables were used to eat off not horde junk, all mechanical items were to be left outside in the outhouse, she had even had some carpets fitted in the living room (with a devils trap underneath of course) and she had purchased three large sofas and a large screen TV. If her and Grace were going to live there they needed some basic essentials (although cable TV wasn’t essential as Bobby had pointed out). Basically she had made the house a home and not a pit stop/library/research facility/demon prison.
“You need some help fixing dinner?” Dean asked following her in to the kitchen as Bobby left the house.
“Nope” Tyler told him as she pottered around the kitchen wiping surfaces.
“Ok, what is your problem?” Dean snapped at her
“Dean don’t” Sam warned
“No Sammy, I’m sick of this, we’ve been coming here over three months now and every time she’s around she treats us like crap so come on Tyler get it off your chest what’s up?”
Tyler took a deep breath “you know what? I promised myself I wouldn’t do this, I wouldn’t let Bobby down…but screw it, my problem is YOU” Tyler shouted turning to face the brothers who stood in the doorway of the kitchen. “YOU TWO ARE MY PROBLEM!” Sam and Dean starred at her astonished; neither of them expected the fury in her voice “YOU WALTZ IN HERE EVERY COUPLE WEEKS AND FILL BOBBY IN ON YOUR LATEST WAR STORIES THEN ASK FOR HIS HELP. TELL ME SOMETHING WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU JUST CALLED BOBBY TO SEE HOW HE IS?” Neither Sam nor Dean replied “yeah that’s what I thought. Tell me Sam when’s Bobby’s birthday?” Sam looked at his feet “Dean what’s the name of Bobby’s dead wife, my aunt’s name?”
“I…I…don’t…I think” Dean stumbled over his words
“See that’s my problem. Bobby bends over backwards for you two, runs to help you whenever you need it, never forgets your birthday, he’s the father your dad never was and you two can’t even remember his birthday. Don’t get me wrong Bobby worships you two, and I truly believe that you will stop the apocalypse I really do and after Bobby you two would be next on my list to call if I had a demon problem, but that doesn’t mean I like either of you. Just once, just one time why can’t you call Bobby when you don’t need his help?”
“Your right” Dean sighed sitting in the nearest chair at the kitchen table.
“Damn straight I’m right! I know you’re good at what you do and I know you’ve saved thousands, maybe millions of people but answer me this how many innocent people have suffered or died helping you? Pamela, Anna, Henriksen, hell me and Grace!”
“We can’t be perfect” Sam told her
“and I wouldn’t expect you to be, and I’m sure your both really nice people but I just…Bobby sent me letters, sometimes 3 or 4 in a week and told me all about your latest adventures, kept me up to date on everything to do with you but did Bobby ever tell you about me and Grace? I wonder why?”
“Cause he doesn’t want us to use you the way we use him” Dean sighed
“Your not as dumb as you look” Tyler said as she heard Bobby’s car pull up outside “dinner’s ready, help yourselves I’ve lost my appetite” Tyler left the room as Bobby and Grace entered the house.
Sam walked around the scrap yard looking for Tyler, she hadn’t come back in to the house since storming out, that had been three hours ago. Sam, Dean and Bobby had decided it would be best for Sam to stay at Bobby’s until he was 100% sure that the demon blood was out of his system, until then he had no business hunting but Bobby had told Sam that he had to be the one to break the news to Tyler.
Sam saw Tyler a few feet in front of him lying on the bonnet of a car with her headphones in and her eyes closed. Sam took a deep breath preparing himself to approach her. What was he going to say? How was he going to tell her? How would she react?
“Stop starring at me and just say what you gotta say” Tyler told him taking her headphones out of her ears. Sam let out the breath he hadn’t realised he had been holding in and crossed the distance between him and the car. “If you’re looking for an apology you’re not going to get one”
Sam shook his head “no, not at all, your right…I just, I need to tell you something without you blowing up”
“I’m gonna blow up if you don’t spit it out already”
“Can I?” Sam asked pointing to the bonnet of the car, Tyler nodded and moved over so Sam could fit beside her once he was comfortable he began “you know all about the demon blood right?”
“I got the censored version yeah”
“Well me, Bobby and Dean decided I shouldn’t be hunting until we know that it’s…”
“Your staying here aren’t you?” Tyler interrupted him
Sam nodded “Dean’s already left. If it’s a problem I’ll go, I’ll go somewhere else, do this on my own”
“No, Bobby would never forgive me and I guess Hero’s need saving sometimes to”
“Oh you’re not getting off that easily!” Tyler told him turning to face him for the first time “there are conditions!”
“I’m not gonna like this am I?”
“Probably not. Firstly, no moping around the house, no self pity! Secondly you can tutor Grace, your some boy genius right, use it, thirdly you can help out round the house, I’m not a maid, and lastly I want to keep things as normal as possible for Grace, so I’m gonna get a job and you can help Bobby out when I’m at work”
“I think I can live with them conditions” Sam agreed as Tyler slid down the bonnet of the car and stood up.
“Oh and anything bad happens to Grace whilst you’re here I’ll shoot you in your sleep” Tyler smiled sweetly at him before walking away.
Tyler knocked on Grace’s bedroom door “come in” Grace called from inside.
“Hey squirt” Tyler said crossing the room and sitting beside her sister on her bed. “What you reading?”
“I’m reading ‘The Monster At The End Of This Book’, Chuck posted it a couple days ago. Sam and Dean are just finding out Chuck’s a prophet” once Dean and Sam had told Chuck about Grace he decided he was going to send Grace his ‘rough drafts’ and she was to send them all to his publisher upon his death, if that would ever happen.
“So you’re almost up to date on the whole Dean and Sam saga?”
“Yeah” Grace almost squealed with excitement
“Would it not be easier to just go downstairs and ask Sam, get a first hand account?”
“No, I like the way Chuck writes, plus Sam would censor bits, or miss bits out”
Tyler laughed “ok I see your point. You know that Sam’s staying a while?”
Grace’s smile grew and touched her eyes “I know its great isn’t it”
Tyler forced a smile “yeah. It will be good for Bobby to have a guy in the house”
“You don’t want him here?” Tyler never could hide her true feelings from Grace so she never understood why she tried.
“It’s not that, it’s just…”
“He’s not as bad as you think. Give him a chance. For Bobby’s sake!”
“Yes sir” Tyler saluted “few more pages then lights out” she kissed her head.
Chapter 2 to follow soon.....
Oh oh, I like this. Love the title. I like how you are making Tyler act. The Winchester saga. lol Sounds like a great movie or three.
So is this mostly a Sam centric fic?
I like it so far. This is my favorite sentence.
how many innocent people have suffered or died helping you?
It does focus on Sam yes. I have a two other Supernatural fics based on Dean but they are only half finished.

Two months later…
Tyler entered the house coughing and sneezing at the same time, she hated being ill. She could hear the TV at full volume, some action movie by the huge explosion that rattled her bones. No doubt Bobby, Grace and Sam were sat on the sofa eating popcorn, drinking coca-cola and not cleaned up after their dinner. It was gone 8pm and Tyler didn’t want to be cleaning a kitchen after finishing a long shift at work.
Sam, Bobby and Grace looked up at her as she entered the room “you look like hell”
“Thanks Grace, that makes me feel so much better” Tyler crossed the room and entered the Kitchen rolling up her sleeves ready for the mess. Tyler stopped in her tracks and looked around the room; it was clean, very clean.
“You want a coffee?” Sam asked walking passed her
“Sure, yeah. Who cleaned?”
“Me, figured you could do with a night off, plus like you said you’re not a maid”
“Err…thank you Sam, I appreciate it”
“You know I think that’s the first time you’ve actually said my name!”
“you keep cleaning and making me coffee I’ll call you whatever you want me to call you” she told him sitting at the table and running her hands through her hair before having a coughing fit.
“You want some aspirin?” Sam offered
“No I’ve taken some, think I just need a decent night’s sleep” she took the coffee Sam offered to her and took a sip.
“Well don’t worry about Grace tomorrow I’ll take her to the movies or something, you take the day for yourself, well until you have to go to work”
Tyler shook her head “no, I couldn’t ask you to do that”
“It’s not a problem Tyler, I don’t mind, it’s the least I can do. It’s not like she’s any trouble”
“Are you sure?”
“It would be my pleasure”
Tyler smiled “Thanks Sam”
Sam had to admit he had thoroughly enjoyed his day with Grace, he had taken her to an art gallery and museum and she had seemed to enjoy herself to, well if she didn’t she was worthy of an Oscar.
It was almost 5 and Grace had decided she was hungry but insisted that they go to pick Tyler up from work and all go for a pizza and to see a movie together and take Bobby a pizza home. Bobby was embarrassed about his wheelchair and refused to go anywhere public unless it was necessary.
Grace rushed in to the restaurant where Tyler worked ahead of Sam, when Sam entered Grace was already hugging Tyler and as he approached them he heard Grace begging Tyler to go with them. “Please don’t make me sit through a Zac Efron movie alone!” Sam urged, pleading with his eyes.
Tyler laughed “ok, ok, give me five minutes to change”
Grace sat at the table with Sam and Tyler and was gushing over Zac Efron, Sam and Tyler listened “ok Grace, breath” Sam laughed
“Oh come on Sam, like you never had a celebrity crush when you were my age” Grace whined
“Ok, point made”
“Oh did you hear the avoidance there?” Tyler teased
Grace smirked “I did, come on Sam, who was it? It’s gotta be embarrassing”
“Baby from Dirty Dancing” Grace and Tyler burst in to a fit of hysterics and Sam joined them. This was the first time in a long while he had felt normal.
“Oh god” Grace sighed getting her breath “Tyler’s is worse”
Tyler scowled at her sister “you’re so grounded!”
Sam laughed “oh god it must be bad”
“There’s two actually” Grace began, Tyler sat shaking her head at her sister laughing “Harrison Ford and Sean Connery”
“In my defence Harrison was the whole Indiana Jones thing and Sean was the accent!” Tyler concluded. Sam and Grace both laughed more at Tyler trying to justify her crushes.
Sam placed a sleeping Grace in her bed as Tyler threw back the covers. Grace had fallen asleep in the car on the way home and Tyler didn’t want to disturb her so Sam had carried her from the car to her bed.
Tyler closed the door quietly after her and Sam had left the room “Thank you Sam” Tyler said quickly as Sam proceeded across the hall to his room. Sam stopped and turned to face Tyler “Now I’m going to say something that I don’t say very often so you may want to record it because if you tell anyone I’ll deny all knowledge”
Sam laughed “Don’t worry I can keep a secret”
Tyler walked a little closer to Sam and took a deep breath “First of all I owe you an apology, what I said to you and Dean I was out of order, I had no right and I’m sorry” she whispered as to not wake Grace.
“Tyler you don’t…”
“Yes I do. I was angry at you and Dean because of Bobby and it was stupid of me, no one put a gun to Bobby’s head and made him help you. He knew what he was doing and he knew the consequences of what he was doing”
“Tyler please don’t” Sam held his hand up to stop her from talking. “I don’t deserve your apology”
“Yes you do Sam” Tyler said aloud, when she realised she was going to wake Grace by talking at full volume she took Sam’s hand and lead him down the stairs and in to the living room. “Sam I believe in destiny or fate or whatever. We choose our own paths but no matter what the end result is always going to be the same, it’s just the journey that varies”
“What are you saying?”
“The whole raising the devil thing” Sam looked down at his feet, she used her hand to gently raise his head to look at her “what I’m saying is no matter what path you chose, to go with Ruby to believe her or to not believe her and stay on the straight and narrow something else would have happened and you’d still have ended up in the same place. We can’t run away from ourselves. Where we’re meant to be. I know it’s a bit of a sucky destiny but you can’t beat yourself up about it. Think about it your mom made a deal with a demon before you were even born, Dean went to hell to learn the skills he needed to kill Lucifer once and for all”
“I never stood a chance did I?” Sam laughed moving away from Tyler and her intense stare to sit on the couch.
“No I guess you never. But I really am sorry; you’re not as bad as I thought. But I honestly believe your letting the demons win being here. You should be out there fighting evil and doing what you do best, not for redemption which I bet your thinking, but for you!”
“Thank you Tyler”
“Don’t thank me to much I’m only sucking up so you’ll do the washing up more often” Tyler laughed. “And I want to thank you for all that you’ve done for Grace, I think she wouldn’t have coped half as well as she has coming here and I truly believe that’s because of you”
Sam and Tyler were sat on sofa, Tyler had her legs tucked under her and Sam was slouched down on the chair stretching his legs as far out in front of him as he could get.
“So what’s your story?” Sam noticed the grimace that quickly shot across Tyler’s face before she composed herself.
“My life…” she began “your usual story. Dad died when I was 3, don’t really remember him and to this day I don’t know what kind of demon killed him. Mom always gave me different stories. When I was old enough to use a weapon without harming myself my mom took me hunting, well I say hunting she more or less used me as bait, ‘the poor little cute kid needs help and is all alone in a dark alley’ thing. Worked most times to. I know it sounds awful but I never understood her hunting, I mean I know it was because of my dad but I barely remembered the guy and I always kinda resented her for holding on to the past when me and her could have had a future. Regardless, Mom meets some hunter whilst we’re travelling and ends up pregnant. And I finally thought this was it, this was the point when she would realise she couldn’t hunt anymore, and she didn’t for a while. Long enough to give birth to Grace anyway”
“That’s rough” Sam added his thoughts
“That was Mom. I woke up in the night to a 3 month old Grace screaming the place down. Mom had left $100 and a note saying if she wasn’t back in two weeks to go to her brothers, Bobby’s. I was 16 with my 3 month old sister, had no idea where I was or how to get to Bobby’s. Haven’t seen or heard from her since”
“Did you ever look for her?”
“Honestly?” Sam nodded at her “I never wanted to. She hadn’t been much of a mom to me and clearly she didn’t want to be a mother to Grace. And if she had come back to claim us I’d have kicked up a storm and fought for Grace anyway. Bobby looked, he’ll deny all knowledge of it but I know he did, but then I think he realised if she wanted us she’d have come for us. I wanted Grace to have a normal life, so when I was legally old enough to be her guardian we left Bobby’s and started our new life”
“And then you got dragged back in to it because of me and Dean”
“No not at all, you heard Grace, she knew everything anyway I was just being naïve thinking I could hide it from her”
“Has she asked about hunting?”
Tyler laughed and nodded “told her when she was 16 I’d take her on a hunt.”
“What if she wants to carry on?”
“Then I won’t stop her, I’ll advise her as best I can but I won’t make any decisions for her”
“Like your mom did with you?”
“Exactly” Tyler agreed “or I might lock her up in Bobby’s Demon Dungeon, haven’t quite decided yet” Sam laughed.
Grace bounded down the stairs and in to the living room “Uncle Bobby you…” Grace stopped speaking when she almost crashed in to Bobby in his wheelchair staring at Tyler and Sam who were sleeping on the couch.
“Ssshhhhh” Bobby told her “that’s the first time he’s slept without nightmares since he’s been here” Bobby whispered.
Grace looked at Sam and Tyler. Sam was sat on the sofa stretching his legs out on the floor and Tyler was resting her head on his stomach and curled up beside him. “Well let’s leave them to it” Grace suggested.
“When are you going to tell Tyler?” Grace asked Bobby as they strolled slowly by the river. Grace closed her eyes and smiled up at the sun, it felt so nice on her face.
“As soon as I need to” Bobby informed his niece. It felt good to stretch his legs, to be walking again.
“I don’t know why we can’t just tell her you can walk again? Its not like it happened over night, you worked hard and you did it, we should be celebrating” Grace said stopping at the bench they sat on every week.
“I know Gracey, but it’s not just about me” Bobby told her sitting at the bench, he was the only person allowed to call her Gracey. “If we tell Tyler, she’ll stick around for a while, make sure I can cope on my own, but when she realises I’m fine she’ll up and leave again. And I don’t blame her for that but…”
“But Sam needs her” Bobby looked at her in surprise “I’m not a dumb kid Uncle Bobby I notice these things. They need each other, Sam does as much for her as she does for him and she doesn’t even realise it”
Bobby hugged Grace to him and kissed her head gently “Sam does need her; I really don’t think he’d have made it through the past few months if it wasn’t for your sister”
“Maybe if we told her and you just asked her to stick around she would?” Grace suggested
“Maybe, but lets keep it between us for a while”
