Day Two of 41 Days of Metallicar  
Here's my contribution to Day Two of 41 Days of Metallicar: a 100-word drabble coda to 3.16, No Rest For The Wicked. Don't miss all the great stuff that other folks are contributing over there - there's some particularly tasty Impala art for the viewing!

****************************************

Day Two 

He’d never been fanciful, despite Dad and Dean always teasing him about his imagination. Oh, he’d always been quick to visualize just exactly how things could go wrong on the hunt, right from the first night he realized what his family did. Apart from those very specific worries and the disturbingly vivid images of pain, fear, and loss they could evoke, however, he’d never indulged in imagining things. He’d never invested machines with souls or animals with human personalities.
 
And yet, forever alone now in the Impala, he heard her engine moan in lonely grief when he turned the key.

Aww Mary... So, so good.

Thanks! Sorry about that burning hole; I'm afraid I'm going to pur more fuel on it soon, when psychoactivtoad grants me leave to post the Sweet Charity fic I wrote for her ... And there's always whatever is going to come to mind for each of the Metallicar days between now and the season premiere!

Oh Yay! What can I say, I’m a complete masochist, I can’t wait to read your stuff! :-D

Hi Mary! I read this without seeing who posted it and knew immediately that it was you. This is wonderful as always and looking forward to reading your Sweet Charity fic.

See you around.....

Thank you! Fun to know that my "voice" is so instantly recognizable ... *grin*

Something tells me I'll be around a lot, what with the 41 Days of Metallicar underway. I managed a haiku every day last year; we'll see if I can manage a daily something again this year!

Oh my, that hurt. In a beautiful sort of way. You write drabbles like you write haiku. It's all poetry.

Thank you! Praise makes me all warm and pink ... and the Impala deserves poetry, truly!

(Love that icon, BTW!)

*sob* I hate thinking of Sam and the Impala alone.

So do I! And yet, it's an image I keep revisiting ... like poking a sore tooth, you can't resist doing it.

I really can't wait for season four to start! *extends hanky*

Poor Sammy all alone with the Impala.
bardicvoice: Lonely Impala by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 11th, 2008 01:39 am (UTC)
Somehow, that image makes Sam all the more alone; as if the presence of Dean is so much a part of the car that seeing Sam alone in it just further points up the absence of Dean. Ouch. That image kills me every time ...
zofia27zofia27 on August 11th, 2008 02:42 am (UTC)
Agreed. Seeing anyone other than Dean driving the Impala doesn't feel right...even if it's Sam.
