Supernatural100 "Candy" Drabble Challenge: Displacement  
Author: HalfshellVenus
Category: Sam & Dean (Genfic, drabble)
Rating: PG

Author’s Notes: Written for the supernatural100 “Candy” challenge. A twisty take on that theme.

x-x-x-x-x

After the messiest of jobs, the air itself has flavor.

Blood, fire, gunpowder, and acid—they reek and climb and cling inside the soul.

Years ago, Sam turned to peppermints to cover up the memories. He keeps them in the car, always ready on the return.

The taste that makes things better is the taste that makes him sick, if it’s casual or isolated from its purpose. It brings horror and destruction, and the taint of darker knowledge.

Every Christmas, Sam forgets this when the Candy Canes appear... but one bite does him in.

He should have chosen cinnamon instead.

That's too bad for him. But the effect is still unfortunate.

You are harsh today!

Also, blond guys aren't really my thing.

Not mine, either. The fact that I make an exception for Jensen... Speaks.Volumes.

I must say I have always seen him more as the funny/snarky guy than the beautiful/hot one. Loved him on Dark Angel, thought he was a huge waste of space on Smallville, found him pretty blah on Days of Our Lives. So he is more like hit and miss for me. Just because he might overshadow his co-star in this particular show...

Not mine, either. The fact that I make an exception for Jensen... Speaks.Volumes.

I do have some exception guys as well. Jude Law is great of course. And I can occasionally take the Heath Ledger type in moderation.

Heath Ledger looks best with long curls (black or blonde). I wish he'd stop shaving his stupid head!!!

Yes to Jude, No to Heath. Heath is really very ordinary-looking to me. I shudder to admit it, but I find Brad Pitt physically attractive (mainly with longer hair. Crewcuts make almost everyone look like doofuses to me. *cough* Oceans-whatever *cough*).

I find Brad's face freakishly unattractive. Especially when they try to pretend that he is traditionally attractive. His body on the other hand? Like is Fight Club/Snatch?

It's all personal taste. Although Brad seems disproportionately hated in LJ, hence I hesitate to mention it. I find him attractive on a totally shallow level. Note I did not say "beautiful" or "handsome." More like "Cute."

I could go on ALL DAY about people I think are attractive but not actually handsome or beautiful, but I find it usually hacks people off. "What! How can you say Daniel Day-Lewis isn't handsome?"

And then there's the UglySexy category, which my husband understands but again... makes other people mad. Let's just say that Scott Glenn and Tommy Lee Jones and Willem Dafoe rule this category, and in another life I would totally bang any of them :-0

Willem Dafoe => Totally understand.

My "so ugly he is sexy again" list is very, very, very long.

Heh, well then--- we could talk! Willem Dafoe is the KING of this category to me. Too many cheek bones and teeth, but the charisma... "To Live And Die In L.A." kind of left its mark on me for good.

Ooh, Ooh-- Jurgen Prochnow is on my list too.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on February 4th, 2006 07:55 am (UTC)
Ooh, Ooh-- Jurgen Prochnow is on my list too.

Yes, yes, yes.

Willem Dafoe has been in that cat. since Platoon. Sanjay Dutt (Indian Actor). Snoop Dogg. Ron Perlam. Billy Bob Thornton on occasion. Peter Stomare on occasion. LOL, I'd even file Rober Knepper under these.

Also seen this one? Lissa_bear is trying to talk her gay roomate into writing fanfic.

And I also pointed Narcissus_Unchained from pbf into the direction of livejournal.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Venushalfshellvenus on February 4th, 2006 08:12 am (UTC)
Yes, I saw her post. But since she's aiming at threesomes... bows out. Hate them.

Nice of you to point Narcissus_Unchained over here. I owe him/her a fic read!
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on February 4th, 2006 08:17 am (UTC)
Actually the guy, tremond, specifically said that he doesn't want to do any threesomes, at least for now (even though that is what lissa is poking him for). He wants to stars with a "normal" one for now.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on February 4th, 2006 08:20 am (UTC)
Also about Narcissus, it's nothing earth shattering yet, but I thought maybe some livejournal prodding could send him/her in the right direction. Hey, never hurts to have a new writer.
