Sam/Gabriel slash pairs the characters Sam Winchester and Gabriel aka the Trickster in a romantic or sexual relationship. Although this pairing wasn't really popular 'till 5:08 "Changing Channels" and may not be as popular as Wincest or Destiel it has slowly risen over the years, and refuses to back down. Even though Gabriel did not appeared on the show for quite some time, Sabriel still rose in popularity.
In the tradition of fandom making "mashup" pairing names, Gabriel/Sam is referred to as Sabriel. The pairing often appears in fanworks featuring combination with Destiel.
