Summary: Sam and Dean Winchester are two ordinary brothers living ordinary, small-town lives. Okay, so maybe having a mother who was brutally murdered by one of America’s most notorious serial killers and a father who needs 6 different kinds of medication to get out of bed in the morning is not that ordinary, but the rest of their problems: relationship failures and job disappointments, too many bills and too much overtime, and Dean’s two kids, 9 year-old Jonah with his disturbing passion for the music of Lady Gaga and 6-year old Simon with his severe hearing loss, well they’re entirely ordinary... The only thing extraordinary about Sam and Dean is this: the story of how they fell in love and how they learned to cope in such an ordinary world with such an extraordinary love.

Author's Note: Written for spn_j2_bigbang for 2010. A lot of the dialogue in this fic takes place in American Sign Language, I have used italics when the characters are signing to differentiate it from spoken speech.
Acknowledgements: So many thanks and so much gratitude must go to the fantastic andreth47 who helped me out to a ridiculous degree with this fic, not just with the grammar and ameri-picking, but with structure and pacing and characteristion and motivations, I can't thank her enough for all her time and suggestions, they were truly invaluable and really made this thing what it is :DD
Also thanks to the lovely spn_j2_bigbang mods without whom this fabulous challenge can't take place. You ladies rock so hard!!!
Finally... What can I say??? I have to give so many thanks to the lovely and fantastically talented shades_of_hades who stepped in at the (very!!) last minute after my original artist dropped out, and with only four days to go managed to produce some gorgeous artwork which you can find: HERE at her art post. I've also inserted pics throughout the fics and of course used her fabulous icons!!!
