Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Slowly Drifting Toward Solid" (Sam, Dean, PG)  
Title: Slowly Drifting Toward Solid
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (Post-4x22): Dean has never been so lost…
Author's Notes: Happy Birthday to velvetine01! I hope this helps add to a wonderful celebration for you. Sorry this wound up Gen- I was aiming for something else, but it didn't quite get there.
Also for supernatural100, this is "Lost."

x-x-x-x-x

It was never this bad before, not day in and day out. Dean used to know what he should be doing, knew his purpose. It all changed after Hell, too much demanded without a foundation of trust, and now…

Now he and Sam are running, because Dean wasn't there in time to stop what Sam began. All they can do is run.

"Where—" Sam asks.

"As far away as possible."

It's not an answer or a solution, but it's all Dean's got besides Sam here with him.

After the past two years, Dean thinks it just might be enough.

Oh.

Oh, oh.

*is flail-y*

It's always enough as long as the two of them are together.

It sure is for me-- that's the core of this whole show, underneath the wings and the demons and the mytharc. It's what I need from this show!

So glad you liked it, and I hope it added a little something to the birthday celebration for you. :)

Thank you so much!

Oh, that icon. It's the whole Sam&Dean foundation, even without the car- shoulder-to-shoulder, walking the road together. :)

Makes me happy when they're together. Cause then they can do anything :)

Do anything or choose to leave anything they don't want or need. So long as they make the decision together, and it leads to them continuing on as a unit, I'll be happy.

It's enough, Dean! *sniff* Beautiful, honey.

It IS enough! *thunks him over the head* What took you so long to see that?!?

That's very nice. Yes: together. *nods*

Thanks for sharing this. :)

Even if the world burns down around them, together is what matters. They can gripe at each other about their mistakes, roll their eyes, regret a little, even be a little mad. So long as they stay together and commit to facing or leaving the battle as one.

Season 4 just about killed me, for the lack of this.

I just love that they're running together. :-) Do not like when they're opposed. Thanks for taking up this challenge!

Together is what counts, regardless of the grief and disconnection along the way.

They might not come out of this (the WORLD might not survive it), but they need to meet their future as a family again.

Awww! Just lovely.

Oof. Loved that.

I sure hope we get some of this in S5, after the prolonged torture that was S4. Let them bury their old arguments and move forward together. Before it kills us all. :0

this is very dean. in some ways his needs are very simple - he needs a direction and he needs his brother. we can only hope they actually stay together this time.

I'm just not up to them splitting apart and being at odds with one another again (or even just disconnected). When the love isn't there, it doesn't feel like my show (and it isn't the reason I watch).

And after their warzone childhood and all the things and people they've lost along the way, they still have each other and that still matters. Anything else is just too bleak to bother surviving.

Awesome.

That is all.

Hee! Thank you, Erin!

I whimpered through the 89 words, but the final eleven pushed me over the edge. *wipes eyes*

That's kind of how I felt about all of S3 and S4, leading to that tiniest of moments in the S4 finale when they were reunited and on the same side for a change.

The love between them is the only part of the show that doesn't feel utterly hopeless right now (and for two years previous). I need it as much as they do!
