Supernatural Gen Drabble: A Chance To Stop Running  
Title: A Chance To Stop Running
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Sam (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Post-"Born Under A Bad Sign" drabble on "Fight Or Flight" for 100_ghosts and "Possession" for supernatural100.

x-x-x-x-x

It had him.

For a week-- maybe longer-- it ran the show, using his body to do god knew what. At the end there was blood, a dead stranger, and the memory of being silenced inside his own head.

The demon gloried in destruction and death, but Sam was puzzled. Why overlook the obvious? Why hadn't it killed him when it had the chance?

He remembers that it wanted to.

And he remembers struggling to get out, because he would have helped the demon do that, so long as he could take it right down with him in the end.

Damn Sam
Son you need to lighten up cause Dean would come after you in the afterlife and that would so not be a good thing. Loved it. It was very good.

Re: Damn Sam
Sometimes Sam is very much his father's son, though-- and a glimpse of expediency, that would end the whole battle for Dean... I can see him taking it.

The fact that Dean would be destroyed by Sam's dying would never even occur to him-- he'd think he was liberating Dean, never knowing that he'd released him into an emptiness Dean isn't prepared to survive. :(

Can you imagine, being that close to a chance to finish off all those loose ends that have destroyed your family?

But that he'd destroy Dean by his leaving isn't something Sam's even thought of...

Oh, Sam.

:) I mostly only write the "Oh, Dean" moments, and it's nice to think about the other side as well.

Sam's single, greatest chance to destroy the Demon without killing anyone else he cares about... I can imagine how badly he'd have wanted that.

Oh... *sniffles*

I love this! It's a really interesting, different take on BUABS. So much emotion in just 100 words. Very very good read :) Thanks!

I hadn't thought about that, but you're right. It was one of the first things that occurred to me about that episode, but I think most of us were distracted by "whoo-hotEvilSammy" and "Aw, poor Dean." :)

I can just imagine not only the self-hatred Sam feels for the things the Demon did while in his body, but the anger at not having enough control at the time to get the upper hand long enough to end his family's battle for good. How frustrating!

Thanks so much for reading, and for getting all thinky with me. I appreciate it. :)

Oooh! Nice! I like this drabble very much. *g*

Thank you very much!

So many possibilities with Demon-possessed Sam, and so many of them not even porn-related. There's a lot of dramatic directions to go with that whole idea. :)
One Girl Revolution1grl_revolution on February 22nd, 2007 05:01 am (UTC)
There are tons of possibilities, I totally agree! I am so glad that there are people like you out there that are willing to explore those possibilities and give the rest of us an opportunity to experience them too! *g*

The demons are such intriguing villains, but what destruction they leave behind.

Glad you liked it! Like your "demon" emoticon too. ;)

Oh, Sam.

I suppose the idea would have been tempting to him. Take this demon out, take himself out, and then it's all over, and he doesn't have to worry anymore, not about himself or about Dean having to fulfill that promise, or about anything at all.

Oh, Sam.

Nicely done.

After what happened to Jessica and to his father, I think that idea might be very appealing to Sam. Maybe he'd even tell himself that it would let Dean finally be free to choose his own life-- though he couldn't be more wrong, if he truly thought that. :(
