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.

You're the closest thing to innocence either of them will ever have again!
Oh, isn't that the truth. I think that's one of the many things Dean missed about having Sam gone-- his own last traces of innocence were laid to rest in Sam's absence.

I just have to go watch John and Sam hug, is all.
Oh, your icon makes ME feel better too.

What a huge gap between what Sam thought Dean and John felt (rightly so), and what was actually going on. He needed to listen beneath the words, and he didn't. :(
