Supernatural Gen Drabble: But The Crowd Is Silent

Title: But The Crowd Is Silent
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Sam (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Drabble on "Pride" for 100_ghosts.

x-x-x-x-x

It was different with his family, though Sam's not sure if they still think of themselves as family anymore.

They noticed his good grades, and their praise was genuine— both Dad's and Dean's alike. They didn't understand his obsession with academics, but they accepted it as part of who he was.

Until it went too far.

The scholarship that brought him to Stanford was both salvation and condemnation at once. He proves himself worthy of it over and over, with essays and tests.

Sam's damn proud of himself, as he should be— has to be.

There's no-one else who cares.
