Supernatural Gen Drabble: Someone Else's War  
Title: Someone Else's War
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Sam doesn't love it like they do…
Author's notes: Drabble for the "Third Wheel" challenge at 100_ghosts.


Sam doesn't love it like they do.

He's good at it— skilled and diligent—but sitting around diners or motel rooms with Dad and Dean, listening to them get all worked up about "this angle" or "that time when I was cornered"… he knows it's not the same.

He does it because he's here, with them— because this is his life as dictated by one John Winchester.

They don't bother to include him anymore in the conversation— his attitude spoils the comraderie that keeps them going.

He's an outsider to the Winchester army.

They'll hardly miss him when he's gone.

oh Sam, they need you, Dean bloody needs you.
One of the biggest (and most compelling) tragedies on this show is the way the main characters hurt each other by failing to say what they really, actually think, instead letting their actions mislead the person who most needs to know the truth.

How could Sam know that they felt otherwise (though Dean needing him might not outweigh how very much Sam needed to get out from under John's thumb)? And on the flip side, how can Dean ever know how much both John and Sam loved him when both of them left him so easily, so casually. Augh!
