Supernatural Gen Drabble: "Detonation" (G)  
Title: Detonation
Author: HalfshellVenus

Summary (Pre-Series): Dean knew about the letter…
Author's Notes: A writerverse entry for the prompt of "Just Before The Battle."


Dean knew about the letter from Stanford, but it was an offer, not a decision. For a while, he could cling to a thin sliver of hope.

But then Sam said it, the words aimed like an attack at eighteen years of Winchester tradition: "I'm going away to college."

The air nearly crackled with static as their father's face darkened with anger. Then shouting exploded through the kitchen, the inevitable lead-up to bitter words too damaging to take back.

Dean stood frozen and silent, lost to the buzzing in his head that signaled the utter destruction of everything he loved.

Yes. And like Dean had been kind of idealizing what having all three of them together again would be like--and the ideal fell apart.

That's it-- the icon right there! God, what a powerful moment in the family dynamic that was-- it showed so much history in just those few seconds.
