Supernatural Gen Drabble: Time Off  
Title: Time Off
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Drabble on "vacation" for supernatural100.

x-x-x-x-x

"So, a few weeks ago…"

"Yeah."

"Seriously, the Grand Canyon? That's your number one choice?"

Dean squints at the windshield. "Well, not first choice. Just, you know—never been there."

"So what, then?"

"The beach, the mountains. Who knows? We've never had a real vacation."

I have, Sam thinks. "So, fishing and hiking then."

Dean frowns. "Sounds like work. Maybe the beach."

"We could stop by Disneyland or Sea World on the way."

Would that be fun, or just stupid? Maybe we're too old. "Let's try relaxing first, see how that goes."

"Margaritas," Sam grins.

"And bikinis." Dean's practically there…

Ah yes, quite a bunch of us, isn't it?unhobbityhobbit on June 29th, 2007 03:36 pm (UTC)
Yes! It's not a real holiday if you don't take a few days off to do nothing/admire the view.

Hiking, Sam? You don't do enough of that when you're working?

I actually prefer the active holidays myself, but that's unusual. :)

Walking around here and there through various podunk towns is not the same as hiking through the mountains! Not by a long shot. :D And I can see Sam enjoying that entirely, and Dean being all "There's too much forest here. I'm done." :0

Other people watch the waves, and Dean watches different scenery. Endlessly. ;)

Perfect last line!

It's irrational I know, but I don't like Sam very much right now...
But he doesn't say it, and doesn't rub it in Dean's face. He just had a different life away from Dean and John, and heavens-- who wouldn't take a real vacation for the first time ever after that?

and you want him to work on his vacation?! Grrrrr.
:0 I actually like hiking very much as part of a vacation, but I can see not everyone feels that way. Dean did say mountains as a possibility-- hiking comes to mind immediately for me, though I hear that some people enjoy fishing. I don't know why, but since my mother is among them, well...

:D Don't blame poor Sam! He's a guy, after all-- those are great guy things to do on vacation (and for some of us girls as well. I miss hiking like blazes, now that we have wimpy children with tiny little legs). ;)

boys. you are never too old for disneyland.

this is very faintly sad (croatoan was just on last night, so i'm thinking about john's secret and how tired dean was of keeping it) but also really sweet, because if anyone deserves a vacation with sun and margaritas and pretty girls in bikinis, it's the winchesters.

Poor Dean doesn't know that, though. Can you imagine how surreal Disneyland would be to someone who has spent his life hunting dark and unbelievable things? Giant mice in clothes, barbershop quartets on bicycles... it would be like a paean to unreality.

Thank goodness I don't live Dean's life. ;)

It's funny, I wrote this before "Croatoan" aired-- but I'm glad it was on last night, as I'm supposed to create things for it over at super_summer next week. Last year, we had to do the ficcing and such before the repeat, which made it more challenging (trying to remember details and such).

Poor Dean-- Sam doesn't understand for a single second why he wants to run away from the awful future that might be coming. :(

Very cute! The boys really do deserve a vacation! Thanks for writing!

And you know, I'd really like to see that-- even if it starts out that way and detours into something unexpected, at least we'd have 1/4 of an episode of fluffy fun. :)

Before the zombies show up...
