well to the bad guys who are pagan gods, the humans are just animals. So to them eating the babies meat is like eating say calf's meat. Just figured that since in 'Hammer of the gods' they ate that one guy who was still alive when they started, as well as the guy who got prepared in advance, that live babies might be seen as a special treat for them.
true, I figured it'd be a bit more horrifying if we first get the description of the babies being brought in, giving them some degree of personality and then having them killed, than if the bad guys just brought in platters of baby pattée and so on.
hmm, the problem of the situation is that Dean is in no position to save the babies, whatsoever. He's pretty much forced to either watch them get eaten or run out of the room knowing he'll be punished for doing so. (dozens of pagan gods, Sam's life depending on him being obedient and no weapons...)
I decided to have him run out, and be sick of what he saw.
The idea was to come up with something so horrifying, that he actually questions if his decision to agree to the slavery he found himself in to save his brother, and ensure Sam's happiness for the rest of his life, is worth it. (wanted to make his sacrifice as hard on him as possible.)
