Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Summary: For kronette, who wanted Dean happy for a change. Also for supernatural100's challenge #34, “Joy.”
Shapeshifter slime last week and burnt bacon this morning-- Dean was tired of his lousy luck already.
He grumbled, squinted his eyes... and was done. Dean was no complainer.
Crossing from Arizona to California, something inside him changed. “Ventura Highway” came on the radio and the sun appeared. Dean decided to drive up the coast instead.
Two hours later, he was there. Climbing up 101, watching the waves sparkle under the sun, he glided through a gorgeous day, his brother finally back beside him. And he realized that what with chasing monsters and evil… sometimes, he was just chasing this.
