Day Eleven of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
Okay -- I'm sneaking in at lunch to post today's entry into the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration. As lighthearted as yesterday's was ... well, that's how morose today's 100 word contribution is. Sorry about that ...

**************************
Rebuild
 
She looked like he felt:  warped where she wasn’t outright smashed, sagging on broken axles, bristling with unexpected sharp edges of shattered glass and steel, bled out of water, oil, and transmission fluid. He rested a hesitant hand on her caved-in roof and felt the wrongness of it, the echoes of the crash still shivering in the twisted metal or in his trembling hand, he wasn’t sure which. Nothing was left of her surety and grace, her strength and power. She was lost and empty and alone, nothing left to give.
 
Watch out for Sammy.
 
He picked up a wrench.

Beautiful! Your 41 days of Metallicar is so great that it has inspired me to make a video about her connection with Dean. I still haven't found a good song for it though.... I do know that the scene at the end of ELAC have to be included... (If anybody have an idea for a song I'd love to hear your ideas. Thanks :))

*waves* I have a couple that might work, but they're kind of emo-ish...

Alter Bridge: Watch Over You or Before Tomorrow Comes

3 Doors Down: It's Not My Time

Sixx:A.M.: Life is Beautiful or Pray for Me or Tomorrow

Ooops...my typy-fingers are messed up.

I'm glad you're enjoying these - I'm having fun writing them! And I'll look forward to seeing your video, too!

Have to think about music, though ... and I'm so tired that there's nothing creative in my brain at present!

Poor Metallicar. *cries*

Honestly, seeing her mangled body after the crash ranks up there at 11 on the Heartbreak Meter, right along with losing Big Daddy & our boys.

I know what you mean, Rap - I grieved for her alone, even apart from seeing her as an avatar of Dean.

That icon is made of WIN!!!!!!

I can hardly even watch the end of Devil's Trap now. Or hear Bad Moon Rising for that matter!

*shakes fist at KTMB*

fuesch did the icon during last year's Metallicar celebration; it's free to owners who credit!

That image was so ... so ... oh, fudge!

It is truly interesting that your words chose to bring out this particular moment after I watched IMTOD for the first time in a very long time just Sunday night.

I still cry. The whole Winchester family ... three men and their girl ... so battered, so bruised, so broken.

*sigh*

Were you sending vibes my way, Cindy? I never know where my little kernel ideas are coming from ...

All the family stories lay me in the aisle. Oh - guess that means all of the episodes, hmm?
originalcindyr: B&W Deanoriginalcindyr on August 20th, 2008 12:19 am (UTC)
I have to admit that I have been adoring your little drabbles - each day bringing me joy, even amidst the angst and heartache.

So, yes, I suppose I could indeed be trying to send you subconcious thoughts.

Oh ... btw ... family stories ... aisle ... all episodes? Yepperoo! I'll bring the tissues, will you bring the pillows?
bardicvoice: Unconquered by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 20th, 2008 12:31 am (UTC)
Done! (It's a good thing the Sanitarium is so well supplied ... you do a good job!)

And thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying the drabbles; they've been a real joy to write!

This just gave me a single emo tear.
Awesome. :)
bardicvoice: DeanImpala by <lj user=fuesch>bardicvoice on August 19th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Are you and Dean related, in that one-tear-only fashion? *grin*

Not quite as traumatic. I know how it all ends.
bardicvoice: DeanImpala by <lj user=fuesch>bardicvoice on August 19th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
No you don't! It's not over yet ... *grin*

Well, I know how that chapter ends.

Poor little Metallicar!
*sniffle*
bardicvoice: notthecar by <lj user=fuesch>bardicvoice on August 21st, 2008 01:49 am (UTC)
I always feel for her!

Aw.. such a sad little piece.
bardicvoice: notthecar by <lj user=fuesch>bardicvoice on August 21st, 2008 01:49 am (UTC)
But at least the rebuild worked -- on both of them!
