Summary: Their first mistake was pointing a gun at Bobby Mercer. Their last mistake was pointing one at his baby brother.

This is actually a four brothers fic that I discovered and fell in love with. You all know I have a weakness for brothers, and four brothers is no exception. The bond between Bobby and Jack mirrors Dean and Sam's in a lot of ways, but Jack is ten times more vulnerable and highly naive due to being sheltered by his three older brothers.

In this fic, it's set before the events of the movie in their younger lives when Jack is a teen. It's one of those cliched 'goes to store gets robbed' scenarios but she does such a great job displaying the emotion, and Bobby's wits and strengths as well as Jack's. It has violence, blood, gore, lots of heady emotions and great, realistic adaptations of a young Jack and Bobby.

If you have never seen the movie four brothers featuring Mark Wahlberg as Bobby and Garrett Hedlund as Jack I HIGHLY encourage you do. It's much more than your typical rated R, guns blazing thugs in Detroit movie. I watch it again and again due to these characters and how much of a family they're despite not being blood which mirrors Supernatural A LOT.
