x-x-x-x-x

At a diner in Waukegan, Sam brought up Dean's recent anger and renewed dedication to hunting, and he talked about sublimation like he'd invented the word. Dean thought of all the waitresses he'd fucked while trying to break free from Sam's stranglehold on his heart.

He told Sam to shut the hell up.

At a motel in Narragansett, Sam veered off onto a diatribe about love and long-term commitment, and how Dean would never know just how amazing that could be. Dean remembered how hard those four years of Stanford had been, remembered the emptiness of losing someone whose breathing he could've picked out from a roomful of people sleeping in the dark.

He grabbed his coat and went out to get drunk and not think about the muscles spanning Sam's chest, or the way Sam had had him pretty much wrapped around his finger since they were kids.

Outside an abandoned house in Saratoga, Sam lectured Dean on self-control. He might have meant food or women, or maybe something else, but Dean just didn't care anymore. He shoved Sam up against the Impala, and pulled him down into a hard, frustrated kiss.

Sam stood there afterward, openmouthed and obviously cycling through a million thoughts at once.

"I've been holding that back for the last six years," Dean said. "So don't fucking talk to me like I've never tried to keep from doing whatever I want. I've fucking lived it."

Inside a heartbeat, a minute, a lifetime, Sam leaned forward and kissed him back until Dean was dizzy, aching and breathless.

"You can stop trying," Sam whispered, his eyes mirroring the truth in Dean's own.

"We've got twelve years of pretending between us. It's time to stop running from what we've both been wanting all along."

Aw, this is so nicely old school Sam/Dean! I miss that.

Outside an abandoned house in Saratoga, Sam lectured Dean on self-control. He might have meant food or women, or maybe something else, but Dean just didn't care anymore. He shoved Sam up against the Impala, and pulled him down into a hard, frustrated kiss.

This was so satisfying. Sometimes I get weary of the old "long-suffering Dean always waits for Sam to make the first move" trope. Nice one.

I miss old-school Sam/Dean too. That's still my favorite era-- so many good basics to work with.

I know what you mean about Dean. He's very protective of Sam, and much of the time I think he'd keep holding back... but he also has a short fuse, and it's nice to let him off the chain once in awhile. :D

Thanks for reading!

Yup, that's it. m :)

"You can stop trying"..... *heart clench*

Lovely little fic :)

Oh, those early seasons. How I miss having only that one enormous thing between the boys be broken, and the hope that it could be fixed!

Very satisfying, that.

"I've been holding that back for the last six years," Dean said. "So don't fucking talk to me like I've never tried to keep from doing whatever I want. I've fucking lived it."

That felt so *true*.

I'm so glad you noticed that line! Dean's frustrations sometimes just explode out of him in a way that makes him do all of the things he's forever tried not to... and hiding that secret would be the biggest one of all.

Yay! I love that they got it right in the end. Lovely work.

We always hope they someday will, don't we? :)

Just lovely!

I found this especially poignant remembered the emptiness of losing someone whose breathing he could've picked out from a roomful of people sleeping in the dark. .

Thanks so much, bb! ♥

You're so welcome, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Happy belated birthday! *hugs*

Wow, I just like this - and totally agree with all those great phrases other people have already pointed out. I love Dean's reactions to Sam's lectures, and this just ends so perfectly.

I think one of the worst things would be to have the object of your affections-- no matter who that is-- lecturing you about being shallow!

Fortunately for both of them, Dean's temper has its limits. :)

Just lovely.

Go, Sammy! That's my boy.
Loved this! :)

There are times when Sam really knows how to cut through the B.S., and what a great opportunity this was!

Mmmmmmmmmmm, I love the boys when they're like this!

Sometimes actions speak louder than words Sam...go Dean!

Their bickering is one of my favorite things about them. Bickering+loyalty+love... what a balance!

Omgomgomg *dies*

THIS is why I love Sam/Dean SO much.

I so miss the way they used to be! Really, they were already broken enough in S1 and S2-- they didn't need Hell or demon blood or anything else to make their lives plenty hard already.

New to this fandom, mere weeks (though a veteran slashaholic).
Once I got over my aversion to RPF, and, um incest, I found this fandom has some brilliant writers. And then seeing the show- Id only seen the odd episode or part, scattered over the ears, the fic has led me to watch the show- and WOW. The Sam/Dean slash is canon- at least on an emotional level. If the show was on HBO I think they'd probably make it canon.
This small piece you've done is beautifully crafted, and discloses so much. Wonderful

Thank you so much!

I used to write tons of fics for this show, and I'm sorry that got so hard after Season 2 ended. I love these boys and their thorny, interconnected perfection to distraction!
