Sam could drown in the cornfields, he thinks sometimes. Just walk in and never come out and no one would ever notice. Some days Dean’s the only tether keeping him from drifting away out into the endless sea of green.Read more "Ship In Harbor [SPN]"
“I’m pretty sure the only food in the fridge is that leftover Thai that we both decided was too spicy to finish.”
Which was probably true, but Dean had at least one cracked rib and a headache like an ice pick and really just wanted to go home and lie down for about a day and a half. He didn’t admit any of this out loud, but Sam must have read it in his look because he pulled out a piece of paper and waved it at Dean like some sort of magic ticket.Read more "Something Sweet [SPN]"
What did you do, Sam doesn’t ask after the graveyard, after the bullet and their father’s approving ghost, after Dean stops spending his nights in rundown bars and his mornings washing off the smell of someone else’s sheets.
What did you do, he doesn’t ask. What was done to you, what was taken?Read more "Jumping the Rails [SPN]"
You know what I want? I want the s10 AU where Sam and Dean actually go and watch that French art house movie about the mime or whatever who’s secretly a cockroach.Read more "Tit for Tat [SPN]"
There is (was, will be) a boy running through the grass. Blue sky overhead, green grass underfoot; the boy runs. A rabbit runs also, aware of nothing but the open space before and the boy behind. A dog barks from inside the forest that stretches out along the green grass; barks twice, and bursts out of the underbrush, a brown and white arrow aimed at the rabbit.
And (the boy runs; the boy stumbles; the boy falls; the boy drops to his knees and clutches at his eyes; the boy sees blood; the boy sees an empty field and a panting dog) the boy stops, watches dog and rabbit disappear back into the forest, wonders what just (didn’t happen) happened.Read more "Falls the Night [SGA]"
One of Dean’s favorite jokes in the whole world is, “You know how this shitty coffee is like sex in a canoe?”Read more "One of These Days [SPN]"
The thing is, Jess’s sense of humor is pretty much the worst Sam’s ever met (even worse than–well. No need to go there), which is why Sam can’t understand how she makes him laugh. Because there’s ‘dad jokes’ and then there’s, well…Read more "Don’t You Know, Everyone Wants to Laugh [SPN]"
Linda follows Dr. Strummer’s advice and begins with a deep facial scrub, because her face does feel a little stiff, and it’s a small and simple action that doesn’t require thought.Read more "The Family That Showers Together [SPN]"
John stumbled across the not-Tetris game buried in the ‘jumper programming completely by accident, in the middle of a crisis that had him madly scrolling through menus and options in the hope of locating something to take care of giant, impossible metal-eating alien spiders. It later took him the majority of a 10-hour flight, isolated in the cockpit while everyone else played strip poker in the cargo bay, to rediscover it deliberately.Read more "If / And / Or [SGA]"
What words, what words? How could he ever say
the aching, endless hollow he had felt
at sight of seeming death’s too-soon decay,
the slackened neck, stilled hand, and blood-soaked belt–
