SPN Slash Drabble: "Fresh Canvas" (Sam/Dean, PG-13)  
Title: Fresh Canvas
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Rating: PG-13
Summary (Early S4): Dean's body is new and perfect all the way through.
Author's Notes: A drabble-meme offering for scoopchick, who wanted Sam/Dean and "Tattoo."
Also for spn_drabble and "Tattoo."

x-x-x-x-x

"It's all perfect now," Sam said, fingers tracing over Dean's skin. "Every scar is gone."

"Except the handprint on my arm."

Sam covered the marks with his lips. "Worth it, though."

Dean stretched. "Even fixed up my rotator cuff."

Healed injuries were a bonus, but some of those marks were important. "What about the tattoo?" Sam asked quietly. "Are you getting a new one?"

"Soon as we find a place that's clean enough..."

Dean rummaged through his duffel bag and found a permanent marker. "But until then, let's see how well you draw."

"Badly."

Dean laughed. "That's probably good enough."

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it!

Oh, wow. This. Just wow. It turned out so, so good, OMG. Sweet and kinda heart clenchy and just. UNF. God, I've just lost the ability to talk, because I keep going back to read it again.

Thank you so much for this! Again, wow.

Oh, I'm so happy to hear that. Tattoos aren't my thing at all, so I went to the canon tattoo that would have been removed in that S4 "rebirthing," but what a nice setup for Sam to acquaint himself with the new Dean. Not to mention that Castiel removed one "imperfection" too many.

So glad you liked how it turned out!

I do love the tattoo and it's a great drabble idea...but Cas didn't remove the protection tattoo :( You can see that Dean still has it when he lifts up his shirt in the ep.

Ack! Killed by an unnoticed detail. *dies of mortification* :(

S'ok ;) I had a big discussion about it when it aired trying to figure out why (since tattoos are scars) Cas didn't remove it, too. But since it's a protection symbol, it would seem likely that the angels would want Dean protected from any evil influence.

I was probably distracted by naked!Dean!stomach, and assumed Dean was just boggling over his amazingly not-dead body. I didn't see the tattoo.

It's definitely an important thing for both boys to have! Now, why didn't Castiel clean up that glaring handprint afterwards? Talk about scars...

Probably wanted to leave it as a reminder for Dean to be more grateful. Or as it turns out, grateful at all, which was probably kind of frustrating. ;)

This is very sweet, and I love the title.

Thank you! These little ficlets are taking me longer than I expected (haven't forgotten yours), but I'm slowly working my way through them. :)

Yes! Dean is Sammy's fresh canvas. Loved this, hon. Thanks. :)

:D Thank you!

Now that Dean's given him the marker, I'd be willing to bet Sam finds time for a little extra random doodling just to prolong the nakedness. Who wouldn't? :)

That just might be the first drabble I'm meming 'cause...it's so awww-inducing and cute...and I'm not even a Sam/Dean shipper, so you win :).
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: SN Lovershalfshellvenus on January 21st, 2010 12:21 am (UTC)
Hee!

I have to break out the happy-dance for this comment, on all counts!

Thank you. :)

I'm glad that came across so well, because I was afraid this was too dry! That's very reassuring. :)

Very sweet and emotion filled, and with a touch of humor to boot. Love it.

Thank you so much! It was nice to finally get to use that prompt, too. I save them all, just in case. :)
