Supernatural Gen Drabble: Modern-Day Alchemy (PG)

Title: Modern-Day Alchemy
Author: HalfshellVenus

Disclaimer: 1) Neither Supernatural nor its characters belong to me. 2) Method not guaranteed in actual use.
Author's Notes: Happy belated birthday to kronette! You asked for a Dean drabble on an accomplishment that was for Dean alone, and I hope this is to your liking. :)
Also for the supernatural100 challenge on "Exhilaration."


It cost two bucks at Goodwill, a total bargain. It didn't need to actually work—Dean didn't want it for music anyway.

Battery-operated, portable, basic circuitry—just needed the "record" function for input, plus rewiring and a display.

And time with a soldering iron and spare parts…

Three months he hauled it around, until they visited Dad's electrician friend in Richmond. Dean tinkered in the garage for days—nothing, uh-oh, almost—before braving a trial run at the cemetery.

Paydirt on the Latham and Montgomery tombs, silence on the gravestones and the rest.

Yes— finally!

If only Sam could see…
