Supernatural Slash Drabble: All These Truths (PG-13)  
Title: All These Truths
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: (pre-series to S3) Some things are true, always and forever.
Author's Notes: Happy birthday to angelnetgirl! This is something different, in both style and form. I hope it helps make your celebration complete. :)
Also for 100_ghosts ("Acid Test") and supernatural100 ( "Together.")

x-x-x-x-x

You want me, Sam says.

All the lies about being mistaken, or You wish (or even the ones Dean tells himself) can't hide the evidence: when Sam kisses him, Dean kisses back.


You left me, Dean says.

Though it wasn't for nothing— a future, himself— Sam can't deny it. He did. He knows it hurt.


You love me, Sam says.

Not meaning the lifetime of forgotten sacrifices, but Dean trading their fates without question. That one sinks in. Finally.


You saved me, Dean says.

It's impossible, but somehow Sam shifted the universe. Dean's here.

They both are— safe at last.

That's definitely the ending I want to see, come Season 4. *sniffles too*

*wipes away a tear* Beautiful, just beautiful, and so true to how it could/should be.

and so true to how it could/should be.

And how I wish it would be, especially for Season Four. *hopes mightily*

Thank you. :)

The comments you post are already useful just as they are. It's wonderful to know when you enjoy a story.

Thank you!

Oh, so pretty.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on July 27th, 2008 11:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! Suprising that it's only 100 words, even to me.

I slept really late, woke up to this, and I can't quote the parts that stand out, cause that would mean quoting the whole thing back to you. I bow to you, and ifyou didn't get it before, I bestow upon you the title of "Queen of the Most Excellent Drabbles". (With full apologies to Bill and Ted LOL) (And I think the FB is longer than yor fic).
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on July 27th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)
Hee! I appreciate your title very much (you've done extra work behind the scenes to back it up too, which is even better!).

The story's only 100 words, and with the first half done and knowing the format of the two sections I wanted left, I suddenly felt extremely lucky to stay within that word count!

Yesterday was my waking-up-late day (11 am-- yark), thanks to that late-night Sentinel fic binge. :0

Oh my. Step by step. Wonderful.

This covered all the important points in their relationship, including something close to the happy-ending I hope we'll see in S4. After all they've been through, I'd really like that for them.

Thanks for reading!

Man, that was lovely. You conveyed a lot without being heavy-handed with narrative. Well done.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on July 27th, 2008 11:21 pm (UTC)
It's really sparse, isn't it? Even for a drabble, because there are four discrete sections in it.

I'm used to being concise with the drabbles, but this one was even moreso!

I'm glad you liked it. Thank you!

Oh I DO love me a happy ending. *joy*

Interesting style, hon. I liked it!

Oh I DO love me a happy ending. *joy*

Me too! *has fingers crossed until the joints creak*

Interesting style, hon. I liked it!
It's very different for me, isn't it? I was really thrilled that all four sections made it under the word limit. The first one is surprisingly detailed, too.

Between the wanting and the leaving and the saving and the loving, yes, their love for each other knows no bounds.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on July 28th, 2008 04:27 pm (UTC)
This is probably the briefest microstory to tell it all, isn't it, but these are all the parts that matter. I could read and write about them forever. :)
