Supernatural Drabble: "All Absolution" (4x22 Coda, Sam, Dean, PG)  
Title: All Absolution
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam, Dean (Drabble, Gen or Slash)
Rating: PG
Summary (4x22, "Lucifer Rising" Coda): Choosing each other was what remained.
Author's Notes: A belated birthday gift for gekizetsu, which I hope she likes!
Also for spn_drabble, this is "Forgiveness."

x-x-x-x-x

With Ruby there below them, a shell as empty as the bitter dispute that divided them, the impasse faded into the shadows. All the harsh words and bitter reasons fell silent.

This—choosing each other—was what remained.

Dean's eyes held apologies for all he'd done (the things he'd thought), while Sam gave voice to soul-deep regret. Their mistakes were far bigger than just two men.

Inside those seconds, forgiveness flowed faster than the blood ominously circling the floor.

I— and Let's— were buried in a spiral of light.

The thought they shared instead was primal, desperate and immediate:

Run.

This is beautiful, and exactly what I would love season five to look like - love and forgiveness.

Thank you! And that's my wish for S5 too-- forgiveness, love, and being on the same side no matter what.

This makes my throat hurt and my eyes burn.

I've never bookmarked a drabble before now.

Thank you so much! Even with danger waiting there in front of them, the sense of relief that the boys are back together again in spite of everything is just so overwhelming.

Amazing. This is what I hope to see gong on in next season. forgiveness, patching up the pain and staying together to the end. Whatever it may be.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on May 18th, 2009 02:11 am (UTC)
Me too-- regardless of how unwelcome the end might be (and I hope it isn't), so long as they're together and the love is there, THAT's what will really matter.

forgiveness flowed faster than the blood ominously circling the floor. Lovely.

Thank you! Such a contrast, that sudden peace between them and the danger rising in the same breath.

It`s beautiful. As simple as that. Nothing else I can say.

(But I obviously will >.<) I love how the moment that they share feels eternal. For some reason I also love how this one word "Run" manages to shatter it and pick up the pace.

I'm glad you added more comments-- they were fabulously descriptive!

i love that they essentially kiss and make up (without, you know, actually kissing) and then get down to business (ie, running like hell).

and then get down to business (ie, running like hell).
I'm glad we got that moment, however brief, because I think pandemonium is what's next.

But so long as they're in it together, they and we can survive it. :)

Thank you!

I hope running is the first step. With something that massive coming your way, you need a little time to regroup and consider your approach!

Such a lovely comment! I hope it helps roundout your day a little, and gives you some cozy thoughts about the boys and the fact that they've reunited (finally in spirit as well) at long last. :)

all good, as usual

Thank you, Missty!

Oh, my gosh, YES. So much YES! One hundred words of absolute, perfect, unoquivocal YES.

Also exactly what I image the opening scene to be for S5 - Stare, grab, run like freakin' hell!

Love you, love your perfect words. *SMISH!*

Also exactly what I image the opening scene to be for S5
I sure hope so-- take a moment to regroup! Don't just stand there and be attacked!

So glad you liked this, especially the feeling of them coming together at last and acknowledging that unity. :)

As always, quite lovely.

Full of forgiveness and a glimmer of hope for their future relationship.

Lovely drabble:)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on May 19th, 2009 06:59 pm (UTC)
I hope we see more of this understanding between them in S5-- especially after all we've been through in S4, because it was painful.

Thanks for your lovely comments, Devon!

Please-- and through the roof in S5! We all need it.

BOYS. I love it. Thank you doll!!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on May 19th, 2009 07:00 pm (UTC)
You're so welcome! I'm sorry it took so long, but I hope it brought that feeling of your specialness around all over again!

Wow, you definitely have a way with drabbles! You patch things up in a beautifully minimalist way.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on June 2nd, 2009 07:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I love the wordplay of drabbles, where the most important lines stand out so much more clearly and the skeletal structure sometimes is all you need to convey a story.
