Day Thirty-Seven of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
I really meant to write a light-hearted one today. I did, truly. The muse, however, had other ideas, so here is my contribution to day 37 of the 41 Days of Metallicar countdown ...


********************************
Lucky Charms

Third time's the charm.

People used the phrase to invoke luck. It was just another measure of how screwed up his life was that he thought it about his death. Electrocuted, but restored by a Reaper. Demon-tortured and smashed by a truck, but restored by a demon. Both times, his life exchanged for someone else’s; first a stranger, then Dad.

Third time’s the charm.

He couldn’t think about this near Sam. Sam was already scared and guilty; he couldn’t add to it. Instead, he sat alone in the car, hands sweating on the wheel, but resolute.

Third time’s for Sam.

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

The Kleenex box is right over there.  *points*

Oh Dean... "sniffles"

That is so like Dean to think like that. Of course he would want to protect Sam - from anything bad really.

I love Dean. I can't wait to have him back ... even knowing that there will have to be some kind of price involved.

That is so like Dean.
Damnit. *grabs whole box of Kleenex*

I keep doing that to you ... and I keep being gratified by your response! Oh, well ...

I do love me some Dean.

Who thought a breakfast cereal could lead to this?

You're just evil. Uh..Cristo??? : )

What the heck was that cloud of black smoke that just went streaming up and out my window?

If this is what it's gonna be like everyday till the 18th, I might not have any tissues left for the season premiere! *stocks up on tissues*

*sniff*

Um, hope you enjoyed the break with the sweetness of the John and Dean moment in day 38's drabble, because it does indeed get and stay angsty for the final three days.

Good forethought in stocking up on tissues ... I think we're all going to need them!

Third time was the charm. That's an amazing connection - the third time he did die. I always felt like Dean knew he was going to die, no matter what... Great job! :)

Thanks. Some of my best ideas come in the shower ... that's where third time's the charm ambushed me, when I was wondering what to write this morning. The irony of it applied to Dean just ached ...

Ah, you evil Kleenex-pusher, you!

Yeah, and the irony of my having worked for Kimberly-Clark (the makers of Kleenex) after my second year of law school has not escaped me!! It's been - oh my God - 30 years, but some things never leave! *grin*

*rubbing hands in glee*

I've been studying in the Kripke school of fan torment ...

Thanks for the contribution to the Kleenex fund!

"hands sweating on the wheel, but resolute."

Resolute.

Brings to my mind that final moment just before the clock began to chime. Those clear eyes filled with such love and such resolution for his little brother.

*sniffle*

Yeah, Cindy, that moment was in my mind's eye. Dean Winchester = resolute, and we love him for it.
