Supernatural Gen Drabble: Becoming Legend  
Title: Becoming Legend
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: 100-word drabble on "Hero" for supernatural100.

x-x-x-x-x

It began before Sam can remember, when he was still a baby and Dean carried him out of that burning house.

Dean kept him safe from nightmares and shadows under the bed, and these are more like stories now than memories, childhood legends of We were and So you did.

Dying… thank god Sam doesn't remember. He only knows Dean rescued him from that too.

But Dean paid too high a price for it, giving away everything just for him. Dean's always been his hero, but it's Sam's turn now.

He won't rest until he's saved Dean from that fate.

I am SO hoping to see something like this in S3. I want Sam to come into his own. :)

Oh man, I am stupid excited for the new season - yes, I gave into the SPN devil - and this drabble just stoke the fire. Bring it on! :D

yes, I gave into the SPN devil
:D It's just more love-- it doesn't diminish the other love! Only the PB writers can do that...

I want strongSam in S3. Protecting Dean. And Dean letting him. And major bonding. *hopes fervently*

Plus NOT bimbos, and at least as much Bobby as last year. Not asking for much, am I?

Thank you! I really hope he gets to show more strength this year-- be more of an equal and less of the little brother. :)

Nicely done. Their love for and devotion to each other is so clear here.

I sure hope we see more of that in S3 too, and less pushing away/arguing.

That plus the spookiness is why I tune in every week. :)

You always kill me with the spot on way you just capture the emotions of Sam and Dean. Yes, just yes!! This made my toes curl. *grins*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on September 21st, 2007 05:25 am (UTC)
Ooh, what a wonderful thing to say! Funny how much emotion you can get out of a drabble-- these have been such wonderful challenges.

Meanwhile... epic Wincest here. It's been so looong!
B: silly - beat that spn Heroesstrifechaos on September 23rd, 2007 10:00 pm (UTC)
Oooh! Yes, I love epic fic, especially when you're the author! I will totally have to check that out. *grins*

What a perfect drabble to begin the new season with.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on September 21st, 2007 05:26 am (UTC)
Thank you, Layne! Anticipating S3 was exactly what drove this one, too-- I'm hoping to see the show take off along these lines. *cross fingers*

awww, sammy. :( i like the idea of him getting to be the caretaker for a change.

i like the idea of him getting to be the caretaker for a change.
I do too, and I really hope to see some of this in S3. I'd like him to have a more "equal" role in the Sam/Dean relationship and less of a "child" role in it. He's growing up, and it's the natural course of things for relationships to change a little when that happens. So let's see it!

A great drabble, it's lovely to see Sam realise just how much Dean has given him and how it's now his turn to save Dean. A perfect read for the begining of season three!

Just to let you know, I'm doing a AHBL 2 fic rec on spn_epific later today and I'm going to include this there, I hope you don't mind.

Thank you! I really, really want to see Sam develop along these lines in S3 too-- take the initiative to save Dean, and be all fierce about it. I want that shift in their relationship, less parent/child and more one of equals. Hope it happens!

I'd be honored to have you rec this story! I have probably 6-7 AHBL2 stories overall, but this is one of I think only two that are drabbles. The other one is a Dean POV drabble, very angsty.

Oh, Thursday, why are you not here yet?

Oooh, I didn't know that! I may have to go check them out. I only wish I had more time to rec all the great AHBL fics out there, but if you'd like you're more than welcome to post a link to them at the community. :)
