Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Lunchtime Larceny" (G)  
Title: Lunchtime Larceny
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Humor, Drabble)
Rating: G
Summary: Flexibility and creativity, and a credit card. That's all you need.
Author's Notes: A belated offering for dotfic's birthday! Dot wanted the boys doing something cooperative together, with a side of snark.
Also for supernatural100, this is "Hunger."

x-x-x-x-x

"We've been driving for hours, and there's no place to eat," Dean complained.

The back highways of the Southwest offered little but cactus and lizards, neither of which added up to hamburger.

"There's a store ahead," Sam pointed.

"Okay!" Dean parked and exited the car in a single motion.

His arms were already full of food when Sam came in. "There's no microwave…" Dean's tone said there was no Santa Claus, either.

"That's okay."

Sam's solution was economical and expedient.

"You stole from a motel," Dean said gleefully.

"They're hangers, Dean, not chandeliers."

"Damn good weenie-roasters too."

"Exactly. Ketchup?"

"Please."

Clever

I like Sam's practical thinking-- especially in a place with not a lot in the way of sticks!

Not exactly the crime of the century, though. ;)

Nah, petty theft is more the brothers' speed. The only reason they'd be involved in a 'crime of the century' is if it was to retrieve an artifact that was a). cursed b). need to beat some badass demon

Sam stole? Gasps!! Is nothing sacred anymore? Oh, and thanks for the before-bed giggle.

Don't you love how ridiculously big a deal that would be to Dean? For no good reason?

Hey, if they had a house like other people they'd have their own hangers. ;)

Larceny and snark and food and the boys working together? This is fabulous. Thank you so much! \o/

I was hoping for something more "meaningful," but the main thing was avoiding the angst/doom/discord, and I hope it hit the spot in that regard!

Hope you had a lovely birthday, with many more to come. :)

Dean's tone said there was no Santa Claus, either. awww, pets Dean.

"You stole from a motel," Dean said gleefully. LOL!! You know he'd be thrilled by this. I love your drabbles.

LOL!! You know he'd be thrilled by this.

It's so wrong, but so true. At some point, I'm sure Sam has lectured him time and again about doing exactly that, and the chance to throw it all back has to be pure *glee*. :D

Much more practical than little soaps and lotions! :D
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on February 23rd, 2009 07:13 am (UTC)
And surprisingly hard to come by if you never dry-clean anything, or especially if you never live in your own place. :0

i love that dean is thrilled by sam's theft. (even tho hangers aren't in the same league as, like, those fluffy bathrobes that fancy hotels charge $300 for....) i also love that they use them for a good old fashioned weenie roast. so practical and cute.

And you can see that being Sam's thought in stealing them-- it isn't really that big a deal, and the motel won't be that inconvenienced. As opposed to all the other things he's lectured Dean about over the years, I'm sure. ;)

My mother actually used to save our "roasting hangers" from year-to-year, and I find myself doing it now! Because "mystery wood" sometimes isn't really what you want when roasting marshmallows, especially if it gives off a mesquite flavor or something like that. :0

Perfect! Love that the hangers came in useful, that hotels I've used are not so good. Little bit of metal, but mostly plastic!

Great drabble!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on February 26th, 2009 09:31 pm (UTC)
Plastic is useless when it comes to... non-hanger uses of hangers. Why must people be mucking up the good randomly-available tools? ;)

Sam's practically a delinquent now! :0

*hee*

What makes this even funnier is that I just skimmed through a craft-book which, amongst other projects, featured one for turning wire hangers into weenie-roasters... :)

*going through the tabs*

Weenie/marshmallow roasters is the second-best use for hangers that I know of, after their intended use!

Though they also make excellent reinforcing pieces too. We used one on the Xmas-light-train this year, which stands up on the lawn. It stood up a lot better with the hanger rod, since part of the original stand is broken. :0

loved it.. I could just imagine Dean's glee at motel theft..
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on March 1st, 2009 07:01 am (UTC)
Hee-- me too. It's so wrong, but so Dean, that he'd be thrilled by that tiny bit of lawlessness on Sam's part.

He must have gotten awfully tired over the years of all Sam's lectures about right and wrong. ;)

This is very humorous -- just hope the hangers aren't coated.

Ever notice when the brothers steal or scam, they don't take more than bare-bones immediate needs? With their talents for it, they could live very well, but it's simply to fund their hunting and keep body and soul together, like when Dean was in the liquor store in WISHFUL THINKING, and he takes *one pint* to keep himself functioning? He had the chance to grab it all but didn't.

It's part of their worldview, cockeyed as that may be from what they live with being Hunters. Funding is one thing. Raking it in would be evil to them.

doesn't excuse 'em but puts a radically-different slant on things

I think that's one of those things you bury your head in the sand over. I know I do. :0

Actually yes-- and I like that about them. I imagine it's how John always rationalized things: they're helping to save the world, and sometimes they need help of their own... but don't abuse the situation.

I imagine that for years, Sam insisted that ALL the stealing was wrong, which is the impetus for Dean's glee over him crossing the line. ;)

"which is the impetus for Dean's glee over him crossing the line."

..he should so be crossing the line on a daily basis ;)

Hee, I liked it! *hugs*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on March 3rd, 2009 06:47 pm (UTC)

I imagine somehow that he's doing it more, and that every little step over it is like giving up a piece of his soul. Because that's just how Sam is. :)

Glad you liked this! :D
