Supernatural Slash Drabble: Eyes Of Green (PG)  
Title: Eyes of Green
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Wincest)
Rating: PG
Summary: Drabble on "Green" for 100_ghosts.

x-x-x-x-x

It's Dean's eyes that Sam recalls most clearly—better than his own, back as far as he can remember. Those eyes have watched over him, seen him for who he was, since Sam's earliest days.

When Dean is quiet, intimate or laid bare by the pain within, his eyes are beautiful. Sam falls into them repeatedly from across tables, car seats, beds. He knows them in all their moods.

But when Dean's gaze goes astray, Sam sees that too. Look at me, he wants to beg, C'mon Dean— please.

By then it's hopeless. Dean's got his eye on someone else.

Love it! ^__^ So profound and emotional and in such short form... Amazing)))

They have such power to complete each other and destroy each other, and it's a never-ending dance from one side to the next. *big angsty sigh*

Aww, Sammy.

I felt so for Dean because Sam left him, but when I think of trying to build your everything on someone who's fickle... ouch. It's just impossible.

When writing the angst tempts you, these two give you so many ways to run with it.

Oh! I'm wibbling here! Poor Sammy.

Hiya honey, wonderful as always.

The sting of loving someone too much is a terrible thing, and you could so easily argue that from either of the boys' sides. *sniffle*

*sends love*

Ouch, poor Sam. I love your drabbles.

Thank you so much! Oh, there's so much opportunity with these two-- angst, snark, schmoop, heat. It's all there, with so many flavors to choose from.

"Sam falls into them repeatedly from..." In such a small drabble, such an exquisite line! This one tugs at my heartstrings. Oh, boys....

Given that the viewer knows what Dean's eyes look like at those moments too, we also know how terribly easy it would be to succumb to them-- even with the chance of getting hurt. Poor Sam.

Oh, ouch. So beautiful. Such a punch to it.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 1st, 2008 02:12 am (UTC)
I was hoping to lay out all the reasons why Sam is addicted to Dean's love, to the point that the reader feels the same pain as Sam when that love drifts someplace else. *wibbles*

That's beautiful. Eyes really are windows to the soul. Wonder what they'd be like if / when his soul belonged to the demon.

We've seen evil Shapeshifter Dean, but he was more nuts and less charming than the potential Demon!Dean a possession might offer.

Which I now utterly want to see!

Oh, Sammy...

It's always some kind of heartache, either the choosing not to love or the giving into it when the other person betrays you. *sniffle*

Lovely. The last 2 lines hurt. Poor Sam!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 1st, 2008 02:15 am (UTC)
Half the time I think Sam will never love Dean the way Dean loves him. And the other half of the time I think Dean could easily betray him if he did. Oh, boys...

The Season 3 canon just creates this stuff on its own, I swear it. *sniffle*

Wow! Just gorgeous.

Thank you for the wonderfully appropriate icon to go with the story! The color is really true-to-life in it, too. :)

Beautiful & heart-breaking. Especially painful, I think, is the implication that Dean *sees* Sam "for who he is"...and he's not enough.

Yes! *is so happy you caught that*

It's as if Dean binds Sam to him by loving him so completely... but walks away easily when he's bored with the status quo. *ouch*
Deadbeat Nymph: dean beseechingdeadbeat_nymph on January 30th, 2008 04:52 am (UTC)
Oh, wow, that just hit me right there.

There's not much else to say - you've illustrated the beauty and evoked the power of Dean's eyes (and, um, yes, them's some eyes), then moved right in for the kill.

I'm always awed by not only how much you can convey, but how much you can move in one hundred words.

(and, um, yes, them's some eyes),
God, yes. I'd intended to contrast Dean's beautiful green eyes with the notion of the green-eyed monster, jealousy. But the tone took a more angsty than angry turn, and I decided to leave well enough alone!

Gah!

Your drabbles are amazing. Just wonderful.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 1st, 2008 07:39 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I love that people read them-- really read them, and all that's in them, right down to the emotion waiting underneath. :)

Another gem. Oh, Sam. So much love, so much pain.
Thanks,

Half of me thinks that Dean runs around in part because he's missing the love he wants from Sam and once he had it would stop looking in all the wrong places. And the other half... wonders if its in his nature to be faithless, and if he'd destroy Sam nearly as soon as he had him.
