Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Office Adventures" (Sam, Dean, PG)  
Title: Office Adventures
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (4x17, It's A Terrible Life): Weird beats predictable any day of the week…
Author's Notes: Happy Birthday, janissa11! I hope this brings you a little happiness on your special day.
Also for supernatural100, this is "Unexpected."

x-x-x-x-x

That putt needs work—though the carpet makes it worse—but lunchtime's over. Back to the phone, the spreadsheets, personnel.

Or not. Elevator guy's here, all hopped-up about something. Dean found Sam overly intense at first, but it's growing on him. The ghost part's kind of weird, but interesting (or the Cleanse is making Dean nuts).

"C'mon," Sam says, and nothing's as boring as Dean's desk. They head upstairs to snoop around an abandoned office.

What the—

Ghosts are real? Not to mention scary. Jesus.

Dean's knees are shaking, but he's more intrigued than ever.

He's never felt so alive.

ghosthunting trumps officework every time. :D (and also, yes, the cleanse WAS making dean nuts. hee.)

Boy, ANYTHING has to be better than spreadsheets and talking corporate policies on the phone. Yark.

And it HAD made him nuts-- from the moment he even considered trying it. Ook.

Great job! As usual. &hearts

:D Thank you! There was so much fun to be had with that episode, SO much to mock and rejoice in all at once. :)

Oh, this is just ... it's delicious! Weirdly and unexpectedly so! Me likes very muchly, and that final line is so defining, so Dean! Well done. :-)

It's fun writing from this AU Dean's POV, where everything is new and weird to him, and he has no idea how weird this version of HIMSELF would seem to the real Dean.

The whole Dean-as-corporate-drone (but crackerjack at it!) just amuses me no end. :D

Ooh yes!

The fun's only beginning for Dean! And it won't be complete until he dumps the idea of The Cleanse. Gads, that was frightening. :0

Yeah, that must have been some rush for Dean. Thanks for writing this.

I loved that he was actually competent at his office job (it emphasizes smart!Dean, among other things). But those sidetrips with Sam to poke around haunted offices and such had to be a lot more fun. ;)

This is kinda choppy -it's awesome. :D

'or the cleanse is making Dean nuts'.

Probably. xD

The "plotty" drabbles do wind up kind of choppy, though I think that's also Dean's attention flitting around in an attempt to stave off boredon. ;)

And darned if Sam doesn't have a solution for that! "Hey, c'mon, let's bother a homicidal ghost." \o/
Mello "Mars" McQueenmello_mcqueen on August 13th, 2009 10:26 pm (UTC)
That's a good thing, since I love choppy -it's why I used to write so many poems. Back then, I didn't think you could BE choppy with prose - this makes me wanna write my own little choppy drabble.

...although mine'll probably be distinctly plot-less. xD

Oh, Sammy, there you go again, complicating Dean's little mundane existence... If it were me, though, I'd take hunting homicidal old ghosts, over boring desk jobs any day. xD

It actually sometimes fits the narrative POV. I think Dean's inherently more "choppy" than Sam, John moreso than Dean, and Bobby trumps them all. ;)

Boring desk jobs that clearly have worn the boy down to where he thinks trying out the Cleanse could possibly be a good or even sane idea. :0
