Supernatural Slash Drabble: "Soft As A Wish" (Sam/Dean, PG-13)  
Title: Soft As A Wish
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: (2x01, "IMTOD") Sam looks for answers in his brother's face.
Author's Notes: Written for spn_drabble's "Kiss" challenge, this is a little different than I expected.

x-x-x-x-x

Three days now, and Dean still hasn't moved. Sam watches close enough that he'd see it, his heart hanging on Dean's every breath.

Come back, Sam whispers, as if Dean can hear him—or maybe someone else is listening who can. Part of Sam still hopes that's true.

The doctors offer little comfort, and Dad's given up.

Dean… Sam looks for answers in his brother's face, in those curving lips that so recently found his in the dark. Thank God Dad doesn't know.

Sam leans forward and kisses Dean, soft as a wish. If prayers won't work… maybe fairytales will.

Nice one, honey! (Oh Sam.)

Such an intensely desperate time, and I can so readily see Sam just trying anything in the hope of bringing Dean back.

That he's recently found something more with Dean, only to risk losing everything, would make it even harder.

Awww...that's sweet. Not mushy sweet, but the good kind of sweet. Love it.

Thank you, Brigid! And you should go visit the Valentine's Day Game page, BTW. Just saying. ;) ♥

I was expecting this to be really sad, and maybe in a way it is, but... Maybe it's because I know what follows, or maybe it's just the Sleeping Beauty aspect, but I actually found this rather hot, in a tender, loving manner.

Is that okay?

Mmm... Sleeping Beauty Dean... I love the image of Sam leaning in just as Dad makes his deal, and poof: the magical healing power of brother love. \o/

The setting is sad, and you can feel Sam's desperation, but we know that it eventually turns out all right and that lessens the sting.

but I actually found this rather hot, in a tender, loving manner.
Is that okay?

:D Part of what gets me here (Commence Kink Activation!) is the idea of the boys recently discovering each other in a new way, practically under their father's nose. And there's also the hospital==public place kink too. But I like that you also found it tender, because I think it is.

Thanks for reading, Melanie!

Ohh, some delicious early!SPN fic - now I'm intrigued as to when exactly they first found each other in the dark...

Also, your previous entry - is "Die Hard 4" really that slashy a movie? I've heard great things...
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 15th, 2009 07:13 am (UTC)
It's funny, I'd hoped to tackle something for the "Kiss" prompt (and post it by today, ideally!), but I never expected it to be this setting and with these angsty overtones. I was planning for something purely romantic, but it wouldn't come.

is "Die Hard 4" really that slashy a movie? I've heard great things...
What it has is this great chemistry between McClane and Matt Farrell's character. Initially, they irritate each other, but before long they start to "get" each other in spite of how incredibly different they are. It's a real yin/yang situation, where they bring out each other's best points and appreciate them when they find them. Plus, their humor works in snarky rapport, and on top of that there is all this protective touching that McClane does all through the movie, and this hero-worship you can see behind the looks in Matt's eyes. Guh.

Which is to say... worth it!

Not just the immediate pain of concerned family, but of a *new* lover, and a newly-bereft one, at that. And the "fairy tales" image works for me, both for this and what it implies about what Sam's going to do next, and the lengths he might go to...

Bedside vigils are sad, whoever they're for, and by. :(


But this is gently loving and romantic. :)

It seems worse, once Sam has found out all of the "more" they could have and share together, that he could suddenly lose everything all at once. Ouch.

And he has no idea that what saves Dean is nothing magical or medical, but instead the greatest of sacrifices. But at least we know it's coming.

That... was short but it still broke my heart. It's amazing you can do that in so few words.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 16th, 2009 06:06 am (UTC)
I'm glad it made itself felt, even in so few words. That's the art of the drabble really, that you can tell a whole story from only its most vivid parts.

gorgeous, sweets!

Thank you! And it's nice seeing you around again, too. :D

Fairy Tales always come true. Thanks for making me feel mushy.

There's both innocence and desperation in what Sam hopes for, and who can blame him? :)

Oh, honey! That last line! This is beautiful!

Thank you! It's always such a challenge, finding the romance within the angst that follows these two everywhere.

Aw. *wibbles* So sad!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 16th, 2009 06:13 am (UTC)
It's a desperation we can certainly understand, though, isn't it? *sigh*

Gah! officially my line of the day. xD

Thank you! ♥

It's the Winchester version of "I Want To Believe..." Wouldn't it be nice if magical/Supernatural things helped the boys once in awhile instead of endangering them?

I'm glad you liked this one. Thanks for commenting! :)

Lovely and kinda sad, yet whimsically hopeful.
As always, very nicely done:)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 16th, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
One of the things that Sam brings us is his ability to hope-- he holds out far longer against the adverse than most people would (than Dean does) simply because he still does hope.

And his hope will be justified, eventually. It will come at a terrible price, but he will get Dean back.
Sna, oh the Stressed: supernaturalstrssna on February 16th, 2009 08:08 pm (UTC)
Say what I feel?
I feel touched by this, sad for what they went through, all the fear they've felt - and yet, very happy that they still have each other.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam/Dean kisshalfshellvenus on February 16th, 2009 09:17 pm (UTC)
and yet, very happy that they still have each other.
That's what has always kept me going with this show and all the boys go through. They have each other, and that makes all the difference.
