Supernatural Slash Fiction: "A Weapon Against The Darkness" (Sam/Dean, PG-13)  
Title: A Weapon Against The Darkness
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Rating: PG-13
Summary (S4): This love still fuels the fight, when all else is lost.
Author's Notes: Happy late birthday to realpestilence! I hope you like this little gift.
Also for 100_ghosts, this is "On A Wing And A Prayer."

x-x-x-x-x

More often they choose darkness now, as if it can hide them from the eyes of angels and whatever else is watching.

They've tried stopping over the years, but it never takes. In a life grown lonelier, grown bleaker, love is the only real comfort they have left.

Fierce touches and heated kisses build toward sweet agony, toward release becoming brightness. Then soft kisses follow, soothing flames down to embers.

"What if—" Sam says suddenly, his worries always stronger at night.

"No guarantees," Dean answers, smoothing Sam's skin.

"But if it ends tomorrow, then at least we had this."

Honey, this is beautiful and I LOVE it.

Thank you so much! *twirls you* I really wanted a romantic touch, in spite of everything about their S4 lives, for this one.

It *is* romantic...sometimes, that's much more satisfying than porn. It hits the emotional spot. :)

I really like this - You tell a whole story in just a few words. Beautifully done.

You tell a whole story in just a few words.
That's always what you hope for with a drabble-- a whole story or a vivid mood-- and this one seems like this could be any one of a number of times it goes just like this. That's what life has become for the two of them now. *sniffles*

Thanks so much for commenting!

This was amazing! So dark and beautiful and yet you still have hope that they will make it through it all together. Thank you for sharing!

yet you still have hope that they will make it through it all together.
I'm so glad the underlying feeling of "hope" came through-- it wasn't in the summary and I couldn't make it work in the title, but hope is what this love they have together gives them, and at the least they appreciate it for what it is.

Thanks so much for commenting!

Oh, thank you! I just saw this...very sweet-sad. They are each other's one true constant. *hugs*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on January 31st, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
You're very welcome-- happy birthday and I'm sorry it wasn't ready yesterday!

And I'm glad you too thought it was romantic, because I thought that would really suit you. :)

In a life grown lonelier, grown bleaker, love is the only real comfort they have left.

Oh. Ow. You've caught the truth, right there...
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on January 31st, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)
That truth is why the Wincest, to me, is the best choice for both of them. It seems impossible, in the normal sense, but for the two of them that's where the slim happiness they have lies.

True every season even moreso than the one before. *sniffles*

I love that so very much. So full of love and them.

The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on January 31st, 2009 03:46 am (UTC)
Thank you so much, Layne! It's always a challenge to get the love/passion/tenderness in without it seeming too 'soft' for who the two of them are.

I love your drabbles, and the final sentence in this one packed a real punch!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on January 31st, 2009 06:03 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! It's a struggle sometimes to get them down to size, but the beginning and end of this one were written first, and the middle last. The ending seemed already finished, and I'm glad you thought so too. :)

So romantic, and so true, all of it. They only have each other and it makes their love that much stronger.

Beautiful.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on January 31st, 2009 08:25 am (UTC)
They only have each other and it makes their love that much stronger.
And that much more important-- it's what binds their sanity together against all that they face, and offers what little happiness there is to be found.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. :)

Awesome. Loved the first line the most, followed closely by the last line. And everything in between ;)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: SN Lovershalfshellvenus on February 4th, 2009 01:40 am (UTC)
S4 is darn hard to work in, no matter whether it's Gen or Slash, but this seemed like a nice angsty/romantic take on where the boys could be right now. :)
fiery_fox2fiery_fox2 on February 5th, 2009 05:30 pm (UTC)
This is pure beauty. I'm speechless. That is all.
*saves*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 6th, 2009 06:27 pm (UTC)
*is thrilled*

I was so pleased with how this one turned out, especially with the tone, and it was a shock to have hardly anyone read it! I'm glad you found it, and liked it so much!

Thanks, as always, for your lovely comments. ♥

I'm glad readers are finding it romantic too, because it's such a hard balance with who the Winchesters are, creating a romantic tone that's believable in their setting. This one really worked for me as romantic, and I'd hoped other people would agree!

Thanks so much for commenting! This drabble in particular has been sorely neglected, and yet I think it's actually one of my best Sam/Dean drabbles ever.

Ohmygod, this was gorgeous. <3
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on May 12th, 2009 04:15 pm (UTC)
So glad you enjoyed this! It was one of my more romantic ones (especially in deadly S4), and not many people saw it.

If only this were how things had gone for the boys, instead of the terrible disconnection they drifted into instead. *sigh*

Cute icon! I love the snuggly ones. :)

Oh yes, this is PERFECT!

In a life grown lonelier, grown bleaker, love is the only real comfort they have left.

It's very much a S4 story, even though there's always been the feeling over the years that it might end badly, at any given time.

But in S4 they're living that feeling daily, which is very hard to write about. This drabble seemed to sum it up for me, though I wish they actually HAD this hint of happiness in canon.
Fledge: needshugsfledge on May 22nd, 2009 11:07 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, indeed *smishes them both*

... It's coming to something when it takes the incest fic writers to make the characters happy over canon!
