SPN Gen Drabble: "Dreaming Of Fields" (WeeChesters, G)  
Title: Dreaming of Fields
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Dean, Sam (Gen, Drabble, Weechesters)
Rating: G
Summary: When Dean was six, he and Sammy stayed at Aunt Sally's farm.
Author's Notes: A birthday present for jeza_jezaro, who wanted WeeChesters. I hope this pleases you!

x-x-x-x-x

When Dean was six, Daddy went on a trip, leaving him and Sammy at Aunt Sally's farm for the week. It was amazing.

Cows were just too big, Dean decided, and goats were scary. But chickens—with their beady eyes and sharp, pecking beaks—were the worst. Dean kept Sammy safe from them.

He pretended to drive the tractor, and climbed through the hay maze in the barn. He found kittens there one morning. Their stray hairs clung to Dean's skin along with tears and Aunt Sally's kisses, as Daddy loaded him and Sammy into the car and drove away.

I know what you mean.

Darn canon for interfering with channeling HappyWinchesters!

Oh, weechesters! The details here are great.

Thank you!

I think the boys must have had a greater mix of happy/sad than most kids, if for no other reason than that they were always on their way to being someplace else.

It really is. *sniffle*

And can you blame him? Chickens are evil, especially if you're little. Domestic Terrorists, I say. :0

Oh this must have happened so many times. m :)

So many new and wonderful things that get left behind all too soon. I think every child probably feels that, but for the Winchesters it would be especially often.

Dean kept Sammy safe from them.

*MELTS* He's such a serious little child, but in that last paragraph he gets to be very young for a bit, making it even sadder when he has to go back to reality.

He's such a serious little child
And it's so sad that he HAS to be. But that's what life after Mary did to him. :(

You can see, once he got over the shock of the size/aggression issue with the livestock, how wonderful a place like that would be for a young child. And really, even the scary cows and chickens are kind of an adventure when you're finding all that out for the first time! Chickens look so harmless in cartoons, but when they come up to your little brother's waist... maybe not so much. :0

:D

Yay-- so glad you enjoyed it! And I hope the concert was good, too. :)

Dean is so right! Chickens are scary! Until they're fried. :) Sweet and sad and makes me remember trips to my grandfather's farm when I was a kid. Scary and exciting and *different*.

Haha! My dad used to send me out to gather eggs from them when I was about 4. Believe me, those chickens did NOT want their eggs taken away, and they would let you know it. Eeek.

Scary and exciting and *different*.
Yes-- even if you haven't been living in a big city, farms are so very different even from small towns and suburbs. And there's always an element of adventure there for little kids. :)

Adorable <3 I don't think I've ever read a Weechesters fic where they were this young. Loved it!

Thank you! I've seen various ages of them, but this is such a wonderful and slightly clueless age in so many ways. :)
I do not think it means what you think it means.tcs1121 on November 28th, 2010 01:15 am (UTC)
I think only those of us in this common frame of mind can truly appreciate how moving this is.

Well done.

Thank you.

Seems like over time, the picture just gets more and more bleak. And this is one of those cases where just about any child would feel pulled away too soon.

:( Nicely done.

Thank you! And oh, how vivid the :) and then the :( so often become when weeChesters are involved...
