SPN Gen Drabble: "The Bumps Along The Way" (WeeChesters, G)  
Title: The Bumps Along The Way
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen Drabble, WeeChesters)
Rating: G
Summary: Big brothers can't protect you from everything.
Author's Notes: A birthday drabble for weesta—hope you like it!
Also for supernatural100, this is "sting."

x-x-x-x-x

"It hurts, Dean!"

Sammy was almost in tears, clutching his toy rabbit so hard Dean was afraid it would spring a leak. There'd definitely be crying then.

He cleaned Sam's knee with a warm washcloth and brushed the gravel free as gently as he could. "How do you get yourself into these things?"

"Tommy Brewer said there were kittens behind the store, but I fell in the parking lot."

"Oh."

Not from fighting, like Dean had (even then), but from something innocent, like any other six-year-old. That was Sam, through and through

Dean wondered how much longer that would last.

Awww, wee boys! This is lovely.

I haven't written the WeeChesters for a couple of months, I think, but this has that double-edged pang to it that I so like about this timeframe. :)

aw, sammy. such a normal little kid.... (also? adorable!)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 17th, 2010 03:21 am (UTC)
And where it's a battle to keep kids innocent, it's even moreso when they're growing up in the Winchester household. *wibble*

Oh, wee sweet boys! ::heart::

Thank you! :)

Awww, Dean just a bit astonished by Sammy's innocence.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 17th, 2010 03:22 am (UTC)
And you know how badly he wishes he could keep him that way, at least at this age. *sniffle*

Sweet, innocent Sammy and big brother Dean. Wonderful fic!

Thank you!

Aww, so cute! And the stuffed bunny was adorable! If I could draw I'd totally draw that...
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 18th, 2010 06:09 pm (UTC)
It would be wonderful in chibi form... but I can't draw either! :)

Love you, love your words. *hugs* :-)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 18th, 2010 06:10 pm (UTC)
*wibble* is exactly how I feel about it too, with that ending. *sniffle*

Excellent. Well-drabbled. Love how you ended it.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 18th, 2010 06:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you! That ending really completes the prompt for me-- adding in a little bit of Dean's pain on top of Sam's.

Ohhhhh.

Just a perfect weechester minute!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 18th, 2010 06:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!
Specialagentldy: Deanbigbrotherspecialagentldy on June 17th, 2010 04:18 am (UTC)
Oh, this is sweet in the beginning and then so painful at the end. Poor boys and their sucky childhood. :-(
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 23rd, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
That bittersweet pang is one of the things that makes WeeChester fic so irresistible to me. Dean puts on a brave front, but he has to miss the life he had before his mother died. And Sam never wanted anything different. *sniffle*

So gorgeous and poignant.

Thank you so much! I'm thrilled that readers are seeing all the layers of the prompt here. :)

too sweet and sam cause dean really grew up too fast
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 23rd, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
He did, and we already know Sam doesn't want that kind of "growing up" at all, so that makes it doubly sad!

Thank you, violet!

This is beautiful. Innocent Sammy is supercute and I always love big brother Dean taking care of Sam.

Dean wondered how much longer that would last.

Ouch. The poor boys ...
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 23rd, 2010 10:53 pm (UTC)
And it won't be the simple heartache of growing up either, not with them. :(
gardnerhill: SPN: Sam hairgardnerhill on June 17th, 2010 06:45 am (UTC)
...

Ten bucks says Dean gives in to the Puppy Eyes and winds up taking Sammy back so they can look for the kittens. Even though there aren't any there, as Dean will say with an exasperated eye-roll even as he holds Sammy's hand while re-negotiating the gravel.

Also, the stuffed bunny? Dean totally swiped that from a church charity barrel for Sammy's birthday.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on June 23rd, 2010 10:54 pm (UTC)
I think Dean might even volunteer to take Sam back to look at the kittens, because he did a lot in the name of trying to give Sam the kind of childhood he'd had torn away from them.

And who can resist kittens? I think even grown-up Dean could fall prey to those. :)
