Supernatural Gen Drabble: Bedtime Battles For Adults (PG)  
Title: Bedtime Battles For Adults
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Humor, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Happy birthday to wendy, who wanted the boys and reading in bed.

x-x-x-x-x

"How much longer are you keeping that light on?" Dean grumbled.

"No idea." Sam barely looked up from his book. "Pull the pillow over your head."

"Can't—my knife's under there. And you're using the other one."

"It's the only room they had Dean, and there's only one bed. I've got other books—you could read."

"Too tired," Dean yawned. "My eyes start crossing."

"Start?" Sam muttered.

"Hey!" Dean protested. "Wait, didn't you already read that?"

"I'm re-reading. You can have it in the car tomorrow—I'll drive."

"…I get carsick."

"You're becoming high-maintenance, Dean, you know that?"

"Shut up."

LOL!! Dean's high maintenance ;) Love the bickering. Sounds just like them.

I couldn't resist turning that around on him, because when the world does not match what he wants he's as high-maintenance as anyone! And he's always nagging Sam with that, so the irony is even better. ;)

LOL! I love this! I love Dean being so difficult and Sam basically rolling his eyes the whole way through. *squishes the darling boys*

Thanks for a fun read. :)

I'm glad you can sense the eye-rolling even though it wasn't specifically mentioned. :D

And I'm on both boys' sides here, because I know what it's like to be kept awake when you want to sleep (and Dean does keep his knife there), but on the other hand I also know what it's like to be nagged to death about all the little ways this totally won't work right now (my kids!). :D

Awwww adorable, bickering brothers! Thank you hon!

You're so welcome! Did you want something pornier instead? The prompt went straight to the Gen spot and bickering for me, but if that's not what you wanted then please let me know. :)

Maybe his wanting to drive all the time isn't always about being in charge... Nah. ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed this-- the bickering is such fun to write, too. :)

I'll bet that's been his excuse for years, too, back when there was homework. ;)

No wonder people keep thinking they're gay. They sound like an old, married couple.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 2nd, 2008 06:08 am (UTC)
:D Maybe the real problem is when couples start bickering like siblings!

These two bring so much more into it with their different personalities and the basics of "I'm tired" and "Well, if you weren't keeping your knife under your pillow, we wouldn't be having this conversation." ;)

♥ This TOTALLY happened!!!!!!! Seriously; like in cannon, during a 'commercial break' where we couldn't see it. But somehow you did, and whats better? You shared!!!!! ♥
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 2nd, 2008 07:12 pm (UTC)
This TOTALLY happened!!!!!!!
Hahahaha! I'm so glad you think so!

Now we discover yet another downside to the knife-under-the-pillow obsession. :D

Thank you! I think your icon pretty much personifies this story, too! :D

Then can be so cute together! ^_^ And you've captured it perfectly! <3

Thank you! I've loved the snarky exchanges between them since Season One, and it's still one of my favorite parts of the show. :D

Aw, that's adorable.
Just like them.

Thank you very much! :)

Ha! That is definitely a Sam and Dean moment, loved it!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 3rd, 2008 07:05 am (UTC)
The funny thing is, neither of them is being entirely unreasonable (including Dean). But their current wants and circumstances are definitely in conflict. :0
softbluebuddy: Jensen Rockssoftbluebuddy on November 2nd, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
Nice one, but I see you marked it kind of as Gen.

But they sound just like a married couple. My husband and I for example. LOL

We go through the same crap almost every night. Now I just stay downstairs reading on-line and only go to bed when I'm exhaused and he's already asleep.

Love that whole Eye crossing comment and Sam saying, "Start?" That was just mean. I love Dean/Jensen's wonky eye.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 3rd, 2008 07:24 am (UTC)
It is Gen, definitely. We think of that as "old married couple" dynamic, but what it really means is people who know each other's ins and outs and have taken more than a few passes through the areas where their current 'goals' don't mesh. That fits siblings (and sometimes adult children and parents) as much as it does a married couple! I think part of it might be that both sides know the other isn't much going to change, after a certain point. 23-24 years as siblings ought to do it, and that Winchester stubbornness. :0

Now I just stay downstairs reading on-line and only go to bed when I'm exhaused and he's already asleep.
My husband can sleep through my turning the lamp on to read for awhile, but when we're sharing a motel room with the kids (a nightmare) and everyone else goes to bed by 9pm, I have to use the clip-on booklight. My son's as touchy as sleeper as I am.

Love that whole Eye crossing comment and Sam saying, "Start?" That was just mean. I love Dean/Jensen's wonky eye.
:D I do too, but you just know that after all those "Princess" and "Sasquatch" comments that Sam wouldn't be able to resist his turn to finally make fun of Dean. ;)

Thank you! Oh, it's just too much fun to write these two when they're going at it-- and always over something incredibly trivial. ;)
