Supernatural Gen Drabble: The Road Of Least Resistance (PG)  
Title: The Road Of Least Resistance
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Choosing the next hunt or town might be more entropy than inspiration…
Author's Notes: This is a birthday drabble for layne67, who passed up porn in favor of prompts combining parts of a bunch of usernames (she blames credits montmorency for this idea). Are you in this list? I know I am: half, shell, lane, wench, tabaqui, sad, no, writer, grace, minimum, calibre, juliana, knot, arliss, erin, may, moniker, cass, winter, live, and ian. I got them all in—mwah-ha-ha!


x-x-x-x-x

"Vampires in Tabaqui?"

"Not Canada," Dean answers. "They want passports now. Plus, it's winter."

"It's almost May!"

"Yeah. Here."

Sam thinks. "Ian Cass sent pictures of a haunted house in Arliss. Creepy bats, deserted lane…"

"No. Guy doesn't even have the grace to hide how much he wants you. It's sad."

"Like you're that picky—that Juliana or Erin, or—"

"Jerilyn," Dean says. "She was a writer."

"More of a half-wit. Zero-caliber talent. Geez, what a wench."

"World-class ass, though."

"Wait, look— live band, one-drink minimum. The Knotted Shells."

"Helluva moniker."

"Punk maybe?"

"Crap," Dean sighs. "Fine. You're buying."

Because you are a freaking genius! ;-P

Hee! That's a very kind interpretation of it, I must say. There were a LOT of actual names in the list, which made it a real challenge. Thank goodness for the regular words like "no" and "half." And for layne67 respelling her name as "lane." ;)

\m/ YAY.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on March 26th, 2008 05:03 am (UTC)
I tell you, 100 words and 21 of them are the prompts!

Although... thank goodness for hyphens. ;)

OMG that was absolutely brilliant!! You got them all in, go you!!

The Knotted Shells - that's my favourite, totally.

Thank you so much. Hee, now I wonder whether your readers would see themselves there :DD



ps Me and Monty did the same thing with these word prompts a little while back. Wanna see? They're not SPN though :)

I passed on several other uses for both words, because the story went someplace else. Quite the challenge with 100 words! As a band name, The Knotted Shells totally sounds more like punk music to me than most other genres. ;)

Wanna see? They're not SPN though :)
Sure, point me to them!

*snickers* Dean knows what's important.

Great job working in all those prompts!

Sometimes it hurts that he's focused almost entirely on that one aspect, though, I have to say!

Great job working in all those prompts!
:D It was tricky-- and lots of them were clearly proper nouns, which makes it harder. :0

Ha!

Well done...

:D Found yourself in there, did you? You were one of the tricky "name" ones, too. :D

Hee! Thank you! I think "pixie" might have been easier to work with in an SPN context than "wench." That was tricky!

Heeeeee!

I see you found yourself there! I liked the meaning behind your username, but I couldn't find a way to work it into a 100-word drabble. Fake-French-Canadian was a lot easier. ;)

"it's almost may!" "yeah. here." heee. also, wow, impressive use of unrelated user name parts! cool. :D

"it's almost may!" "yeah. here."

:D The fear of the Frozen North knows no bounds!

Plus, I wonder if you weren't the "no" in the listing. THAT one was easy compared to some of them. :)

I am so incredibly delighted by this =D I love the way you managed it!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on March 26th, 2008 05:47 pm (UTC)
It was quite the challenge!

Now, YOUR username I could easily have used both halves of for SPN. It aligns well with the fandom, let us say. Moreso than "shell" or things that look like proper nouns! Though I did have "half-knot" as a potential phrase for two names at once, but it didn't work out. ;)

This was funny, and a brilliant way to use ALL of those prompts! But I think that we have to have passports to get into the US, but we don't really ask for them. Oh well! Good work!

But I think that we have to have passports to get into the US, but we don't really ask for them.

There's always a chance that somebody might insist on the passport, and given that Sam and Dean have no real ID they can actually use, that's kind of problematic now! Plus, fugitives. :0

Glad you liked it-- and think if "clucker" came up in the prompts. That would have been tough!
arlissarliss on March 31st, 2008 08:02 am (UTC)
Wow, well done!

The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on April 1st, 2008 06:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm not sure how you wound up in the list, but at least I didn't slander your name. Though you should probably do something about that haunted house. Sell tickets, maybe! ;)

There you go, showing off your mad genius skillz, lol!

Damn, does this mean I have to play along, too? Since there is and "Erin" in there, sure enough. *G*

Well, when I get to EyeCon, maybe I'll find out where my muses went for the winter and I can bring them back. LOL, this would be a fun and creative way to tempt them! *Bookmarks for later*

Heh. You made me chuckle and grin really stupid, with this. :-D

You don't, actually, unless you want to! I offered layne67 a birthday drabble, and she picked this format (part of an ongoing joke she and some of her friends have been up to over the last few years). But since she passed up porn in favor of it, she definitely wanted it.

Some of the user-names seem to be from my f-list and some from hers, so I definitely noticed the "Erin" in there. :)

EyeCon-- you lucky person you! I'm in envy of all those people who've met Jensen and Jared, or seen their presentations, or had photos with them. I feel like I'm never going anywhere again. :0 Hope you have fun!

Your icon cracks me up-- I don't think I've seen that one before. :)
