Supernatural Slash Drabbles: Harnessing The Hunt  
Title: Harnessing The Hunt
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Wincest)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Four connected drabbles on channeling the rush that hunting leaves behind…
Author's Notes: For the lovely girlmostlikely on her birthday—who cherishes both Wincest and drabbles, and so what combination could be better?

x-x-x-x-x

Destroying the Li'kreth demon takes a crossbow.

That's Sam's weapon—smooth wood frame and tautly loaded string, the arrow metal-honed and waiting for its target.

Sam waits in the shadows, biding his time. The demon prowls and sights, beckoned by blood, and then it turns and bares its weakness to Sam's ruthless aim.

The kill is clean and the demon vanishes into dust.

Sam and Dean are back at the car before the last specks settle, shoving up hard against the side of the passenger door, with lips and teeth and pushy hands making the most of the fading rush.

*

Whether called by curse or created by betrayal, banshees cannot hide for long.

Easy to find, often easier to kill, they leave blissful silence in their wake and air that aches for something to fill the void.

Under trees or the shelter of nearby buildings, the brothers grasp each other—strong and sure and ready to sink into each other's skin. They chase kisses along goose-pimpled flesh, fingers over-ready and fumbling as buttons and zippers lose the battle to heated desire.

The night swells with throaty, desperate sounds then. In love's music, the balance of life is once again restored.

*

Laying a ghost to rest is quiet work, but still unsettling. Not the digging-- it's exposing the remains in order to salt and burn what's left.

There's no adrenaline rush from shutting down a ghost, and it leaves them both moody instead.

But it doesn't last—back at the car or motel, the smell is earthy, loam and wood-smoke drowning out gasoline and unwanted memories.

All that's left is the energy of flames, and they give into it without thinking.

They heat and scorch and brand each other with touch, and it's clear they somehow both like fire too much.


*

Vampire kills are messy—nothing like the thrust-and-dust on television, not fast or easy or quickly forgotten.

But the vampires themselves create a certain atmosphere before that ending. Their supernatural sex-appeal coats every word and movement and threat. Where normal people get pulled in, a Hunter stands apart—but can't help being swayed by the mood.

On the bad nights, it's gory or there's a victim to coddle afterward.

But on the good nights, the two of them speed off to safety, where they lick and suck over each other all flesh-fever frenzied-- searching for release, before that feeling fades.

Lemme know how that works out for youprmalscream on May 17th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Fantastic imagery. Very hot to boot.

Thank you! It seemed like a nice theme to tie together-- different hunts, different appetites afterward-- all of it leading to the same irresistible place. :)

Ooh, these were lovely and hot.

That first one got me good. Mmmmm.... there's something about those boys and weapons. Just... mmmm...

Yeah.

Long fingers stroking the wood frame of the crossbow, waiting... waiting...

Definitely puts pictures in my head. :)

I love the frantic need in these drabbles.
Yay! That's exactly the mood I was going for. Even when there's a delay, it eventually turns into that desperate need and desire.

And I'm glad you liked that one line in particular-- fire should be a threat to them, with their history, and yet it seems to be the opposite. It reaches down to some primal level and wakens this burning response.

P.S. Somebody's birthday is coming up soon. Any ideas? :)

Oh wow. That was brilliantly written!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: SN Lovershalfshellvenus on May 18th, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!

Kind of a pre-finale antidote, though the mood feels so much more settled now that we've seen the resolution. *happy sigh*

Beautiful imagery here, and I can just feel their frantic need for each other.

*bounces* That's exactly the phrasing someone else used above, and I'm so happy that came through.

I'm glad you liked it-- I hope it suited both you and the mood.

Many happy returns, and I hope the next year is wonderful. :)

Oh, gorgeous imagery. I love the exploration of the different highs and lows of hunting and the rush left behind.

Thank you so much!

I really enjoyed trying out the different "types" of hunts, and what kinds of moods or effects they might leave behind-- and oh, what that can lead to!

Gorgeous as always:)

Thank you, Leigh! I'm glad you liked this set. :)

Oooh, these are neat. I especially like ghost one, I find it very believable.

Favorite line: There's no adrenaline rush from shutting down a ghost, and it leaves them both moody instead.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on May 18th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
The ghost one... the work is usually simple and less dangerous than most, but also kind of depressing and repellent.

But that smoke-smell has to linger, and then think of all the primal undercurrents it kicks off in the two of them afterward. Rrrrowrrr. :0

Ooo... To summarise, in layman's terms, Hunting Makes Winchester Boys Hot For Eachother! :D
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: SN Lovershalfshellvenus on May 18th, 2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
I think that sums it up perfectly!

Adrenaline transformed into =>0 and aching need. Mmmmmm!

Wow, powerful language here. And one of my fav kinks is the link between the hunting and fucking. wonderful stuff.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: SN Lovershalfshellvenus on May 19th, 2007 07:34 am (UTC)
You're not the only one with that kink, which was part of the inspiration for this story. There are a lot of people who like the hopped-up rush crossing over into a different kind of passion.

It's not even my own kink, but I can definitely see its appeal!
Rachel_sin_attract on May 29th, 2007 04:53 am (UTC)
Yum....so vivid and yummy! :P I LOVE the second one!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on May 30th, 2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
I'm surprise no-one else mentioned that one in particular, because that might be my favorite. There are so many urgent, sexy details in that one. Mmmmmmmm!
