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.

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 ...

Agreed. Seeing anyone other than Dean driving the Impala doesn't feel right...even if it's Sam.
