Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Next Time, Knock" (G)  
Title: Next Time, Knock
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Dean, Sam, Castiel (Gen, Humor, Drabbles)
Rating: G
Summary: Like a stubborn Mother-in-Law, a certain visitor just keeps on showing up.
Author's Notes: Happy Birthday to jellicle, who asked for these three characters and the movies. I hope this meets with your approval, and many happy returns!
Also for supernatural100, this is "Sanity."

x-x-x-x-x

"Dean Winchester."

"Now what?" Dean said. "And can't you use the door?"

"It is unnecessary," Castiel commented. "Where are you going?"

"The Bond flick. Sammy wanted Angelina Jolie, but I get to choose."

"Why do you do this?"

"Trade turns? Beats me." Dean grabbed his jacket.

"This frivolity."

"Keeps us sane, especially with our lives." Dean squinted thoughtfully. "You probably don't have much experience with sane people. I mean, look who you're wearing."

"I fail to—"

"Dean, we—oh. Hello, Castiel."

"Sam."

"Later," Dean said. "And next time, knock."

"But—"

"Is it urgent?"

"No."

"Okay, then. Bye."

"Goodbye…"

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it! I hadn't written Castiel before, so this was a fun challenge. And it was hard to see him wanting to go with them, aside from in a crack context. Things to do, worlds to save. ;)

Many, many happy returns of your special day! :D

*glee*

Why can't we have this in canon?!

It's awesome how true to characters you can get them to be in a (practically) dialogue-only fic. Besides, Dean treating angels just like any other folks he might run across will never not be funny.
Not to mention anything about Castiel = Stubborn Mother-In-Law... ;)

Thank you. I'm happy jellicle asked for this, and that you decided to share.

*hugs*

Thank you so much-- I'm especially thrilled with the thought that they seem like canon.

The really challenge here, which made this so dialogue-heavy, was exactly getting that feel without running over 100 words. This one easily wanted to be longer, and darn Castiel and his formal speech. Contractions save word count. ;)

Besides, Dean treating angels just like any other folks he might run across will never not be funny.
:D He really shouldn't... and yet he does it anway.

Though if I had someone randomly appearing in my life all the time and making instant-demands on me like that, I might get as "NOW what?" fed-up as Dean. :D
Jas Masson: hug me!jasmasson on November 20th, 2008 07:29 pm (UTC)
Perfect!

Just what I needed :)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 20th, 2008 07:55 pm (UTC)
Hee! Me too-- and can you believe I had to do research to see what else was out in theatres now that Sam might want to see instead? Though "Changeling" (drama, directed by Clint Eastwood) seemed perfect somehow. ;)

Oh, Castiel-- what an excellent straight-man you are. :0

LOOOOL, I love Castiel! Really-really love him! He's so cute when it comes to his failure to understand human logic! XDD (Seriously, even Terminators know more about humans than angels do!))))
Awesome story! XDD
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 20th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
He's so cute when it comes to his failure to understand human logic!
Part of what's cute about it is that he really does have higher concerns, so his befuddlement is both understandable and endearing. It's almost as if you want to say, "That's okay. It's not important anyway."

I'm glad you enjoyed this! And I agree about Terminators-- apparently, Cameron has picked up on the weird furry-boot/summer clothes fashion that's going around, and is actually using it. :0

"look who you're wearing", heee. too bad dean doesn't like castiel enough to invite him along, tho - guy could use some loosening up. and i love how clueless he is about people.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 20th, 2008 10:21 pm (UTC)
"look who you're wearing"
Exactly! "Take me, O Lord-- I offer myself for your bidding." I mean, how many people think to go to THAT place? :0

too bad dean doesn't like castiel enough to invite him along, tho - guy could use some loosening up.
Well, he DOES have more important things on his mind, so he probably can't spend the time. Plus, you just know he'd be talking all through the movie:

"Why does he have a gun? That car is noisy. Also fast. Dean, this woman has no clothes. Why do they copulate now?"

Hee! Glad you liked it!

HEY!! I'm over here reading your short fics. *smooch*

They're all so adorably cute.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 20th, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Hee! *smooches you back*

I have both longer than this, and also more... I dunno... worthy, you might say. ;)

These are fun though-- I never got the point of them until I read a few that were actually complete vignettes, because the drabbles tended to dribble off at the end while the story wasn't finished. :0

"You probably don't have much experience with sane people. I mean, look who you're wearing."

Giggled, thank you, the above had me LOL. Schools been rough and I am looking for all the humor I can get.

Yay! Martyred Accountant just doesn't seem like the kind of person who had all of his marbles, you know? Who even anticipates that your body's going to be taken over for that? :0

I hope school gets better-- after finals, there's a huge sigh of relief. I did always hate having every single class running on the same deadline, though. In RL, your emergencies usually come in sequence, not all at the same pre-arranged time. :(

This?

"The Bond flick. Sammy wanted Angelina Jolie, but I get to choose."

"Why do you do this?"

"Trade turns? Beats me."


Kripke needs to steal this from you. It is soooo perfect and a scene I would love to see Misha and Jensen play out *g*

Awesome drabble. Just adorable :)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 21st, 2008 01:58 am (UTC)
and a scene I would love to see Misha and Jensen play out *g*
Thank you very much!

I love the battle of Castiel's failure to understand anything non-serious and Dean's insistence on being literally-minded at the most annoying times.

Not only is there not respect per se, but Dean kind of enjoys yanking Castiel's chain. But why should the angel get off easy? :0
Duckiepatita_fea on November 20th, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC)
*giggle* Oh, boyz. So very nonchalant about cosmic beings breezing into your lives and interrupting your cinema experience. *ruffles Dean's hair, gets hand smacked away*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 21st, 2008 01:59 am (UTC)
So very nonchalant about cosmic beings breezing into your lives and interrupting your cinema experience.

Poor Sam is probably still in awe, and Dean was at the "What do you want? Get out, we're busy!" point the first time Castiel showed up! :0

Heh! Since we were speaking of them I had to drop in and take a look.

"Keeps us sane, especially with our lives." Dean squinted thoughtfully. "You probably don't have much experience with sane people. I mean, look who you're wearing."

So funny! And very likely true. *G*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 21st, 2008 06:33 am (UTC)
:D I'm glad you peeked. This isn't on the "shock and awe" scale of some of my drabbles, but these three characters were awfully fun to work with in this setting.

So funny! And very likely true. *G*
When Castiel said that his human host had 'volunteered' for the job, I thought, "Who does that? And do they think this is what's going to happen?" It doesn't seem like the kind of place that a well-balanced mind would go, somehow. "O Lord, I pray to you, let angels stomp around in my meatsuit for your greater glory." :0

*ducks away from potential smiting* ;)
brigid_tanner: Dean-like-animatedbrigid_tanner on November 21st, 2008 04:07 am (UTC)
Love the way the boys are so used to Castiel showing up. Especially liked "You probably don't have much experience with sane people. I mean, look who you're wearing."
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 21st, 2008 06:35 am (UTC)
Poor Dean couldn't get rid of Castiel if he tried. And possibly can't teach him any 'manners' either, because that's angel-speak for 'trivialities.'

Castiel's crazed-accountant host will never get old, I swear! \o/
layne: spn castiellayne67 on November 21st, 2008 04:15 am (UTC)
I knew it would be Castiel the minute I saw the title! Hmmm, I wonder what Castiel would make of Bond, I mean, if he followed the boys to the theater. Hee!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 21st, 2008 06:42 am (UTC)

Whoo-hoo! All the better! :D

I can already imagine: "This man looks like an ape. And he is rude. How does his car do that? Who is this naked woman? What— oh. Fornication. That is disturbing. Why does he have a gun?"

Dean's in it for the gadgets and go-go girls (but I had to cut the line, because the drabble got too long), and that's the last thing Castiel would understand. ;)
sahbelsahbel on November 21st, 2008 02:45 pm (UTC)
AWESOME! xD

I can just see Castiel's curious!/befuddled!face. hahaha

Thanks for this! =)

And don't we love it! His innocence/super-srsness combination is just really funny.

I'm so glad this made you laugh-- yay!
devon99 on November 21st, 2008 06:26 pm (UTC)
Hee, thanks for making me smile.

I wish he had gone with them. I can just picture it.

Castiel sitting in between Sam and Dean, holding the giant popcorn container, all sharing.....
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on November 23rd, 2008 07:48 am (UTC)
Castiel sitting in between Sam and Dean, holding the giant popcorn container, all sharing...
All big-eyed and talking constantly throughout the movie, asking the most bizarre and ill-timed questions.

Sam would think it was sweet, and Dean would regret letting him tag along. ;)
