Supernatural Gen Drabbles on "Exits": Going, Going, Gone  
Author: HalfshellVenus
Category: Sam and Dean (Gen, Drabbles)
Rating: PG
Summary: 5x100 Gen Drabbles. Three humorous, two dramatic.
Author’s Notes: Written for the supernatural100 “Exits” challenge. I applied the theme broadly…

x-x-x-x-x

Cut And Run
They have almost found the talisman. It is upstairs in this building, bleeding its malevolent power. Sam homes in on it as they move down the hallway in unison.

“There!” he says. They push through the door roughly and stumble in. Sam tears into the closet, tossing things out behind him as Dean checks the window.

“Dude—someone’s here!”

They rocket downstairs, the job unfinished. Dean’s hand is on a door, but a smack on the butt stops him short.

“Ow!” he says. “What?”

“Emergency Exit only!”

“Stupid alarm,” Dean mutters. Leaving by window is a pain in the ass.


Not Here
“Wait—what are you doing, Dean?”

“I’m changing lanes. And what did I say about riding shotgun? Save the driving for when it’s your turn behind the wheel.”

“Okay, all right already. It’s just that—hey! Not here! You’re getting off on the wrong exit!”

“I’ve been here a millions times before, Sam. So don’t get your panties in a bunch.”

“Are you forgetting that I have the actual map? This is not the road that goes to Blue Lake Ridge.”

“No, but it is the road that takes you to Adelheide. Best corndogs this side of a County Fair…”


What, Already?
The music’s pretty good, and not too loud for a change.

Sam does his research while Dean plies his craft at the pool table. A presence at Sam’s side casts a shadow on the laptop screen. Sam looks up.

“Time to go?” he asks brightly. Dean’s eyes hold a thousand pointed words.

Sam packs up the computer, and grabs his jacket from the chair. “That’s a good look for you,” he snickers, dodging the fist Dean aims at his arm.

Dean is a hunter, sometimes a charmer. He’s as loyal as they come…

And he wears beer like nobody’s business.


~~~~~~~~ Levity Above, Drama Below ~~~~~~~~


Unforseen
“I’ll be back,” were the words he said.

He drove off with the brother she’d never met, not finding his father but instead finding his past.

The motel held a lingering trail, with the clippings and the journal left behind. They followed the clues, fell back into the methods they knew. Sam could have been killed by the Woman in White, but he wasn’t and the injuries weren’t bad.

When he returned, his new life was gone and he didn’t even know it.

If he had it to do over, those last words would be worthy of who she was.


Deja Vu
How did they get to an impasse so quickly? It’s only been months since he joined up with Dean again.

Now here they are—divided. Sam wants to track down demon leads with Dad, and Dean’s sticking to Dad’s orders about something clearly unrelated to the larger hunt.

It’s the good soldier vs. the larger picture, and Sam is tired of thinking so damned small.

The taillights dim in the darkness, and this time it’s Sam who’s left behind.

It’s the same fight he had with Dad, but in a different form. And how the hell could that happen again?

Ah. You kill me like no one else. Just in the way you get them, the way you see into them. I am dead.

*prods corpse*

*sighs*

Can anyone call a necromancer?

:D I'm sorry for the killage... and yet strangely proud. :0

This would be the fandom for it. In the X-Files, you'd get someone who wants to assemble new creations from... parts. Ork.

Oh, and you are first once again! Back when you were alive, you were a speedy little devil. ;)

*tests out new body*

Ah, yes, much better.

*goes on murderous rampage*

I mean, um....

:D Not so much speedy as sadly addicted to my flist. :D And you're one of the few who I'll read gen for. :D

You didnt' get an Evil Hand to go with the new body, did you? :0

And you're one of the few who I'll read gen for. :D
Whee! Huge compliment right there! Although I like SN and PB Gen quite a bit. But X-Files or any Star Trek? I usually only read the slash there. ;)

THE EVIL HAND WILL EAT YOU!!!!!!!!!!! Or grope you. Depending.

:) *hugs*

Aww Sam in those last ones :( and lmao Dean in the first ones :D

Aww Sam in those last ones :(
It's funny that those were both Sam-- Dean more often gets the share of my angsty drabbles.

Although in the humorous ones... Dean's more fun to abuse. Very little sense of humor when it involves himself. ;)

Love these. Just the right combos of "Dean you poor Dork" and "Sam you poor fool."
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on May 18th, 2006 07:19 pm (UTC)
:D I love unintentionally dorkyDean. And poor Sam-- once in awhile I have to give in to his pain too...

I am in LOVE with that icon. God. What a fantastic manip.

Unintentionally dorkyDean is almost as good as Intentionally!Dorky!Dean.

And I admit that every time I see this icon I want to lick it. It's all carmendove's fault.

The taillights dim in the darkness, and this time it’s Sam who’s left behind.

I liked the idea of flipping the image and reality of the abandonment around there-- especially because it's just incredible that both of them would get to that point again so quickly, considering the pain that cost them before. They've each made their point, they're both standing on "being right," and neither one of them is the least bit happy about it either.

the third one made me giggle at work. poor dean. and the last two - poor sam. :(

That one's my favorite. Just the approach of the 'punchline,' and how angry Dean is and how sarcastic Sam is. It makes ME want to laugh. :0

It's nice that the dramatic ones came off well too. No Dean angst this time, but finally Sam gets his share.

I love those little-- chabas?-- the Sam and Dean drawings. They are so cute! :)

lets repeat that butt slap some more. maybe on TV form. oh that would be nice =D!!

aww.. Dean and beer. ::hands your drabble a towel:: but does that mean his shirt is all see through and sticking to his body?!!? 0_0!! ::snatches towel away::

We have a winner! I think the show needs more touching even in the "bickery" sense-- shoulder bumping, head-cuffs, cheek-chucking (the face, I mean), not to mention nice touching (as it's known at any house with small, Defcon-level-inter-pestering siblings).

but does that mean his shirt is all see through and sticking to his body?!!? 0_0!! ::snatches towel away::
Heh-heh! I see you have your priorities straight... ;)

See I keep forgetting that drabbles are so SHORT...
and you know I start reading these and I'm figuring oh, that's a great start... and then it just kinda... ends. And I'm like "what?"

Hehe... very nice though :)

And I suppose compared to my silly epic, everything is short.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on May 19th, 2006 04:19 pm (UTC)
and then it just kinda... ends. And I'm like "what?"
Oops, sorry about that. I try to make them complete even though they're short.

BUT... quick to read, since I know your time is pressed right now. You should really read "Beneath The Silence" and "Footprints Swept Away By The Wind" at some point. (Boy, I really have no idea how long hockey season lasts, but since it overlaps with basketball it could go into mid-June if you're lucky and your team does well...)

And I suppose compared to my silly epic, everything is short.
Even your OTHER stuff is short compared to it. But... I'm so enjoying it. :D Always makes me crave the next chapter like NOW.

Each of these is stunning. I think the last is my favorite.

Thank you! The humor ones are such fun, but the drama ones can pack an amazing punch-- even in such a short form. "Scarecrow" still hurts me, even all these episode later...

If he had it to do over, those last words would be worthy of who she was.

Ow. Oh, that hurts good. Lovely job (again! :)).
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 4th, 2006 08:15 pm (UTC)
Ow. Oh, that hurts good.
Ooh, wonderful. I don't write about Sam/Jess all that often, but this prompt sure called out for it. If only...

So nice to have you making your way through some of my older fics! Whee! :D

Sarsargraf on July 11th, 2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
Your fics are beautiful. I'm really enjoying them. :)
