Day Twenty-Eight of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
My mind is really starting to focus on the season premiere, now less than two weeks away; that's how I explain this contribution to day 28 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration.


*****************************
The Keeper of Lost Things

Anything lost almost always turned up under the seats or in the glove box or the trunk. Since they practically lived in the car, that wasn't surprising, but it had become a family joke. He still remembered Dean telling him bedtime stories about lost toys when he was little, calling the Impala the Keeper of Lost Things. When Dad was really late getting back once, Dean reassured him that her magic worked on people too, so he didn't need to worry about Dad being lost.

Now sometimes he dreamed that he opened her door, and found Dean safe inside.

Oh Sammy! Dean's spirit is such a part of Metallicar that it doesn't surprise me Sam would dream this. *cries*

Wouldn't it be awesome if this is how we get Dean back?! He's just suddenly there.

I'm relatively unspoiled for S4, so I have really no idea just how KTMB is going to give us our boy back.

I want to see Dean back with Sam, and back with his baby, however he manages to get there.

I so want it to be September 18, just a couple of minutes shy of 9 PM Eastern ...

*takes several tissues from box*

*sobs*

So short and sweet and like a punch in the gut. This sort of emotion is what Robo!Sam was trying to suppress in Mystery Spot.

Thank you. The killer is knowing how gutted Sam must be ... I want Dean back, and having Dean back start to fix Sam!

Dammit Mary...*takes three tissues from your box*

Um, I'd say "sorry," but I'd be lying ... tears mean that it worked, after all ...

Have another tissue.

I mean this in the nicest possible way:
You utter, utter bastard BV. *steals kleenex*

Re: I mean this in the nicest possible way:
It's just proof that I love you, Cat. After all - we always hurt the ones we love, right?

No need to steal the Kleenex; I'll put out more, I promise.

Thanks for that, though.

Isn't that how it has to happen? I mean, some days a girl has to take things into her own hands... I mean wheels. Her human caretaker doesn't seem to know how to get her man back, and she's getting tired of waiting...

She thinks Sam's okay, but he just doesn't know how to ease in the clutch the way that Dean did.

Impala: Keeper of Lost Souls. (I want to see Dean back with her, and with Sam and Bobby!)

*blindly scrabbles for the kleenex*

Oh, Sam.

*bawls*

I grabbed for the tissues myself when I realized where this story was going to take me ...

Darn you.
*grabs Kleenex*

Hey - at least I do it to myself before I do it to you! (I knew I had to put out the tissues for this one ...)

Oh. :( Poor Sam. The Impala sure is home, but it has a huge load of bad memories doesn't it? Even things that should be happy, like the family joke, end up sad. :( Reading lovely things like these makes me hope to God that Kirpke and the others get the reunion right.

I have confidence that this season will be brilliant, and I can't wait to see the brothers togather again!

Any home carries the mix of emotions of a family; I love that the Impala truly is their home.

I wish I'd read this before I rewatched No Rest for the Wicked, Mary. *is heartbroken* I really like the image of the Imapala as a Keeper of Lost Things.
bardicvoice: Auto shop by <lj user=paradise_birdie>bardicvoice on September 7th, 2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
The first sentence and the "Keeper of Lost Things" name were the first bits that came to me.

Ah, now you can watch No Rest For the Wicked again with this in mind ...
koosh2012 on September 7th, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC)
LOL! Yeah, thanks for that suggestion. I flipped back to Dark Angel S1 for a little emo salve. Unfortunately, El Pollo Loco's coming up. To skip, or not to skip? Sometimes I wish Jensen were just a tad less convincing in his roles....

Oh, Mary! I have spent the last 48 hours with No Rest for the Wicked. I finally watched it for a second time Friday night and then have been watching and writing and watching and writing. And I still seem to cry. I had a brand new box of Kleenex I got Thursday and now it's more than half gone.

This is soooo perfect and so real. I can see Sam's tear streaked face the first time he gets in without his brother. The smells, the bits and pieces of scraps (as you say, The Keeper of Lost Things), the sound of the radio.

Take care of my wheels. *gasp* Yep. Still gets me every time!

Thanks dearie. Perhaps now I'm ready to read your fic. Maybe. I'll let you know. *hugs*

It gets to me, too -- and you can see so much more on the DVDs, too. I love the image quality even as the images and sound make me tear up.

I hope you can take on Last Rites -- if not this weekend, then next weekend, before the new season finally starts. It was my attempt to process how the last season ended.

But you may need to pick up a fresh boc of Kleenex, because I spared nothing when I wrote it.

I do look forward to chatting with you afterward. It's brutal, but I'm proud of it.
