Day Eighteen of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
 Here's today's 100-word contribution to the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration! I knew that I wanted to write this one eventually ...

He knew where he was.
 
He swam up out of the dark groggy and aching, not remembering why or when. But the steady, rumbling vibration beneath him was soothing and right, and the soft voices of his brother and his Dad were calm and reassuring, blending into the undertone of rock music playing at a background low. He smelled leather and sweat and gun oil and wool, felt smooth coolness beneath his cheek and scratchy softness tucked under his chin. He curled back into the firm support that cradled him.
 
He knew where he was.
 
Safe at home.
 
He slept.

That was nice. I can't wait for Dean to be reunited with his baby!

What a tearfully lovely way to enjoy my morning break at the office ... a hot mug of Earl Greyer, a shortbread biscuit, and a cozy, comfy, homefilled wonderful drabble from a friend!

I believe I'm now fortified to renew my journey of this work day. Bless you, dearie!

P.S. I second our Whims ... I can't wait for Dean and his girl to get back together!

Thank you, my dear! (I wonder what Dean will say, when he sees his best girl again?)

I'm going for a simple, soft pat of her trunk ... a rub across the top ... and a quiet, "there's my girl". *sigh*

It's either that, or else we're going to hear Dean go through the roof:

Sam? Where's her tape deck? What's this MP3 shit?

Lol!! Noooo!

I've been entertaining fond daydreams of Sam taking, like, an hour out before he resurrects Dean [which I've decided he's doing, btw. Just fyi. ^_^'] To clean her out, tune-up, wash her down, wax, fill up her tank, warm up the engine and tyres, and have a hamburger and cold beers waiting, inside, so that when Big Brother comes to...?

*happy sigh*

That's how your drabble makes me feel BV, you see what you've done? ^_^

Oh noes! I've made a mushy Cat!

Aw, that's nice. My first thought was Dean and I felt all warm and fuzzy. But then I realized that the drabble would work almost equally as well for Sam... I've been rewatching S3 and Mystery Spot last night was more than a little gut wrenching. Poor Sammy! *sniffles*

Thank you, Koosh! I deliberately kept it vague to fit either of the brothers, and any number of possible situations - hurt? Sick? Just exhausted? In any case - safe at home.

I like vague. Confers greater depth! :):):)

So true how that car is the only home they ever really knew... *sigh*
bardicvoice: Gimme Shelter by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on August 26th, 2008 11:45 pm (UTC)
The car as home has always resonated with me; I knew I'd have to write her that way soon!

Damn.

Oops. I did it again, didn't I?

At least this one was in a good way, not a depressing one!
zofia27zofia27 on August 27th, 2008 01:59 am (UTC)
Yep...you did.

This was just really really sweet!

I promise laughter for tomorrow, truly! Just finished writing it ... *rubbing gleeful hands*
rieyllrieyll on August 27th, 2008 09:45 am (UTC)
Eep! I missed this!

*pounces on fic*

This is so sweet, I love it! *cuddles fic*
