Pairing(s): Anna/Castiel, Haley Collins/Kat
Warning(s): None for this chapter. The story as a whole contains some stuff which isn't usually warned for, but which squicks me out, so (highlight to reveal) fair warning - this story involves pregnancy and childbirth. And also zombies :)
Summary: Lucifer has his chosen vessel and is stronger than ever. Dean fights on with his small band of allies, but it seems there is little hope. In a desperate attempt to help him, Castiel enlists Anna to raise John Winchester from the dead. Her success has consequences none of them could have predicted. Sequel to When The World Is Burning.
Notes: This is the second story of three. The way the trilogy is structured is not exactly chronological: When The World Is Burning comes first, then stories two and three start in the same place. Story two, Hour of Need follows some minor characters, with the Winchesters in lesser roles. Story three takes place in parallel to this one and will follow the Winchesters more closely.
