Supernatural Gen Drabble: In The Bone  
Title: In The Bone
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Dean (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: "Achilles Heel" drabble for 100_ghosts.

x-x-x-x-x

Dean's true weakness isn't women or the Impala. It isn't booze or bloodlust either.

He has killed more things than the context of any single mythology can hold. That doesn't help when his brother's holding a gun on their father, ready to follow through on Dad's urging to end the whole mess now.

It doesn't help when Sam begs Dean to do the same, like Dean's going to cross that line on a "maybe" that isn't guaranteed.

Dean's weakness is his family, period. It might cost him one day— even everything—but it runs to the bone.

He's only human.

Thank you! Funny, but in a Gen sense this was the first thing that came to me. It's so very Dean.

It runs to the bone. Yes it does. There 'aint nothin' he can do about the way he's built.

Perfect, love :)

Oh, god-- absolutely.

The only definition of his heart right now is Sam, now that John's gone. Everything else is just empty noise swirling around through the air...

I love that Dean knows that it'll probably cost him, but there's nothing he can do about it. This is so Dean. Really lovely.

Yes-- it's not fatalism so much as acceptance. Sam is what matters now, and Dean doesn't question that.

Thanks for reading!

in the end, the only thing that's going to matter to dean is sam. so, yeah, this is about right.

Yes, exactly. That's the only worthwhile thing, really-- whatever the fallout becomes.

Oh, Dean.

Nicely done.

Oh, Dean.
Those two words summarize an entire meta-concept, I swear, once you know who Dean really is, down under the skin. *Sigh*
iamstealthyoneiamstealthyone on May 10th, 2007 01:32 am (UTC)
Agreed. *sighs with you*
