DoubleDrabble (Failed Supernatural100 "Pets" Challenge): Making Friends  
Author: HalfshellVenus
Category: Sam (Gen)
Rating: G

Author’s Notes: This was written for the supernatural100 Drabble challenge of “Pets,” but I just couldn’t bear to axe it down to 100 words. After refinement, this double-drabble resulted.

x-x-x-x-x

No matter the house or motel they stayed in, cats would come to Sam. He spoke to them gently, welcoming and stroking them, and left food for cats as homeless as he was. When he was little he gave them names, and they came to him—not for the sound of those unknown words, but for his coaxing tone and quiet ways, the reassurance of his touch. Cats loved him, trusted him, and in some deeper way they knew him.

Friends with dogs were the ones Sam liked to visit. He took his time, throwing sticks and Frisbees in the yard, talking to the dogs like an old friend. Dogs understood, no matter what you told them, and Sam had lots to say that his family never wanted to hear.

In Kankakee, there are murmurs outside the motel room door before Sam slips in and grabs his wallet.

“I need to run to the store,” he says, reaching for the car keys.

“Find someone outside?” Dean asks lightly. Sam’s blush is his answer, and they’ve been through this before.

“I think there’s some cat food in the car from last time,” Dean says softly.

Sam’s smile could blind the sun.

Thank you! I think it's my first SN fluffy!Fic.

Darn those 100-word-limit rules. Can't post this at supernatural100.

But I think this fic was worth it. ;-)

That is nice and just the kind of "slice of life" thing I've been thinking about. Sam totally would latch on to animals, particularly strays since he sees himself as a stray, too.

Nice

I see you caught that part. It was a little more obvious before I trimmed down to get to a flat 200 words, but I hoped it was still there.

Glad you liked it!

Awww...how cute! I'd do the same thing.

Dean is secretly sweet. At least, when it comes to what he'll do for Sam.

Or did you mean Sam? 'Cuz I'd do that too. Cannot resist the kitties! :-D

Sam = catperson and especially Dean = dogperson makes so much sense in my mind.

And the ending is very sweet :)

Glad you liked it! Actually, Sam likes both, but the cats really like him. They know whom to trust. I think Dean is probably a dog-person too, although he has some catlike aspects to his personality too (more kittenlike when he's getting all goofy and immature).

Worth sacrificing the 100-word ideal, I think, although it hurt me not to be able to use this fic for it.

Fine. I wrote a different one. So there >:-P

Such sweetness from Dean. I like.
It reminds me of the ep where he got the little boy to open up.
Just another layer of the man we know as Dean.
Not to leave Sam out in the cold. I can see him being that sensitive to the lost animals.

Yes, it seems to really cover them both, doesn't it?

All Dean's kindness is in what he does, usually not in what he says.

And Sam's kindness is because it's just who he is-- except that major taking his brother for granted and being insensitive to his feelings part. And the similar problem with their Dad.

Oh Sam. I do love Sam. He's so sweet and I just want to pinch his little cheeks and take him home and feed him soup.

His personality complements Dean's so well. I love this show!

Oh my god, he's turned you into a Bubbe! (nickname for a jewish grandmother)

Well, I'm guessing you want to take Dean home and pinch his OTHER cheeks then and to hell with the food, eh?
