Day Eight of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
 Inspired by an event during the Ride Home (see my motorcycle diaries elsewhere in my LJ), here is yet another 100-word drabble for today's 41 Days of Metallicar post.

And I don't care WHAT idiotic MS Word says:  an ellipsis (that's the "..." thingie) does NOT count as a word in my book!

“What could it hurt, John?”
“No offense, Padre, but I’m not much of a believer. Not any more.”
Jim just smiled. They’d stayed with him for a week while John learned more about the evils that hid beneath the surface of the world. The peace Jim exuded affected them all; Sammy was sleeping better, and while Dean was still silent, his eyes had regained a little sparkle. For the first time since Mary died, John felt less … stretched. He sighed.
“Go ahead.”
Jim sprinkled the hood with holy water.
“Oh Lord, bless this car and those who ride in her …”

You know that I agree with you on the Impala as home, Rap!

And I miss Pastor Jim too. We never got much of him, but he definitely left an impression behind! (And I haven't read those AU stories, so I can't attribute my sense of loss to anything more than the show itself ...)

Even though they're AU, they follow the timeline of the show & she manages to tie together her stories with what we see happen each episode...they're like the missing puzzle pieces between episodes.

She's got some that take place "pre-show" when SamnDean are young & stay with Pastor Jim & they really flesh out the character.

Ooooh! Wouldn't it be great to see Pastor Jim in a flashback?! Then they'd have an excuse to bring Ridge Canipe & Colin Ford back!
