Day Seventeen of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  

Once again, I managed to come up with a 100-word drabble for day 17 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration! This one falls in the category of "bestest big brother ever!"  ...

Family Mechanic

“Okay, Dad. Try her now.”
John turned the key; the irritating whine was gone. He smiled.
“Good job, son. You’ll ace auto shop.”
Good moods were made to be used. Dean glanced at Sam, sprawled sullenly nearby with a book, and lowered his voice.
“Dad, about Sam – soccer builds endurance. And it’s gotta help his coordination! His legs’ve gotten so long so fast he can’t figure out where to put his feet without help.”
“You did okay without it.”
“Hey – I’m grace, personified!”
John knew he’d been played, but grinned anyway.
“Okay, Grace. But – bowhunting after soccer practice.”
“Deal. Sammy!”

 Awwwww ...

Current Mood: busy
Current Music: "Watch Over You" by Alter Bridge

That seems to be the common comment on this one!

Love that guy!

So do I, obviously! I could just see him catching John in a good mood and putting it to good use ...

*smishes Dean*

*pets Sammy*

Oh BOYS!!!!!!!!!! *sniff*

Also? I freakin' LOVE that Alter Bridge song, Mary. It's perfect for our boys.

Okay, let's see what happens when I try to show you another pretty that cakehole_cat made for me a while back, by request:

Watch Over You

raputathebuta: Dean: Ooh!raputathebuta on August 25th, 2008 11:38 pm (UTC)

That's GORGEOUS!!!!!

That song just breaks my heart. Alter Bridge is a really great band (Mark Tremonti is from Michigan, W00T!). Have you heard 3 Doors Down's It's Not My Time? Or Sixx A.M.'s Life is Beautiful? Very Dean...at least to me.
bardicvoicebardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 12:23 am (UTC)
Isn't it, though? Cat just does the most gorgeous things. We have this funny relationship going where I throw her ideas (most often built around a song lyric, a mood, and one core image or concept) and she gives back art (sometimes with more music, if I didn't come up with any). I think I'm getting the better of the deal! Some of my requests have rather ... gone on. (One was famously known as "BV's Request List of Doom.")

I've got a few Alter Bridge on my Supernatural playlist ("Rise Today" being another one). That 3 Doors Down one is there too, but not the Sixx A.M. - I'll have to check that out.

Have you heard Johnny Cash's "I See A Darkness?" There's a Winchester song if I ever heard one! Hmm, Cat vidded it once ... let me go looky ...

raputathebuta: Emo!Deanraputathebuta on August 26th, 2008 11:20 pm (UTC)
Oh man. I just...that...sheesh.

*weeps* I had never heard that song before, but now it's going on my list. Thanks, Mary!!!

Also? Cat is now on my list of Idols.
bardicvoice: AlreadyDead by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
Go visit her LJ - she'd love it! (Just be aware that some of her art is, ummm, brotherly love?)

And when she's in Jukebox!Cat mode, you never know what music is going to emerge ... *grin*

*manages to stagger in, under the weight of her own massively-inflated head*
Gah! BV! My ears are burning [and, also? My face]. I- you- damnit, I'm all flummoxed now, don't know what to say.

D'argh! But when you mentioned ISAD I was flailing all over the shop - still my bestest-Spn-song-ever!! ^^' [It's by JC, who you just *know* John listens to, talks about Darkness, inside, saving each other, Brothers, actually contains the 3 magic *never to be heard on Spn* words!! Dude! *must stop now*]

I cannot listen to that one in public, because I always end up misty-eyed. In fact, every time I hear it my heart starts beating faster, honestly! (So thank you for reminding me :P)

But mostly - thanks, hun, for massaging my already-sizeable ego *lol* and Raputa, you're an absolute sweetheart for sayin' so. *_~ *hugs for you both*


Hmm. But now, see, you've called me Jukebox!Cat, and calling me that is like flashing a red flag to a person who reccs music whenever they see a red flag. ^_^

*actually has a 'Songs Including The Word 'Brother' Playlist*

So, ahem, what to recc, what to recc.... *cogitates*

If you're after a 'Dean being woobie/badass out of grief' song: Call The Police, by James Morrison.

If you're after a 'when is Dean ever going to settle down w/ a woman, if not/why not' song: Damn, Sam, I love a Woman That Rains, by Ryan Adams [no, I'm not making this up].

If you're after a badass 'all the family mentioned' song: Brother, by Dark New Day. Or Brother by Racoon. Or Brother by Toad The Wet Sprocket. Or Thanks Bro by Filter. Or Rocket Brothers by Kashmir. Or Sad Eyes by Stillwater. Or Brothers In Arms by Dire Straits [used in Due South!]. Or Blood Brothers by Papa Roach! Or-

*smothers self*

A-nd I'm shutting up now. *blush*

Ahh, the Request List of Doom - good times, BV. Good times.

Re: *manages to stagger in, under the weight of her own massively-inflated head*
Well, if you didn't make such lovely things, you wouldn't have this problem! *Hugs*

Now I must go seek out music ... well, better wait until tomorrow night. There's this thing called work, before which I need this other thing called sleep ... (And I'll listen to "For My Brother," by Blue October ...)

Awwwww! Bestest Big Brother Ever without a doubt!!!
bardicvoice: SU weebros by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 12:25 am (UTC)
I think that's my favorite title for Dean, truly ...

Good moods were made to be used.

I loved this!

And and.. that banner thingy you posted in the above comment.. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
bardicvoice: Feels Like Home by <lj user=Cakehole_Catbardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 12:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed! And I could so see Dean making good use of having caught Dad in a good mood ...

And I agree with you. cakehole_cat does the most gorgeous stuff. Every request she's done for me has exceeded expectations! Most of her work isn't reflected here on LJ; she has an amazing and voluminous thread over on supernatural.tv here: http://z14.invisionfree.com/Supernatural/index.php?showtopic=6226

Check it out sometime, but don't be surprised when your eyes just fill up and overflow with the beauty!
Cat: metallicarcakehole_cat on August 27th, 2008 02:06 am (UTC)
Damnit! It's happening down here as well!
BV!! If you do this any more my head will actually combust %^_^% *lol* Rieyll, thank you for saying so.

*iz feeling emotional*

P.S. - You missed the animated header love in comments on the latest Supernatural University post ... *evil grin*

Loved this one!!

Thank you! I could just see Dean taking advantage of the moment ...
orehime: oatmeal_queenorehime on August 26th, 2008 12:50 pm (UTC)
you know I jus noticed now on second readin that you called it 'Family Mechanic'. That is just PERFECT.
bardicvoice: Family by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you, and congratulations - I wondered if anyone would spot that!! You win!!!
