Day Twenty-One of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
This one took a while to come out, and isn't quite what I intended, but ... it'll do, I think. Here's my latest 100-word contribution to day 21 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration -- we're more than halfway there!

Chevy Lullaby
Dean had been two months old, tired, cranky, screaming, and unable to sleep. Worried, they’d finally bundled him into the car at two A.M. for a hospital run – and within two miles, he was blissfully asleep. Whether it was the sound, the motion, or something else, the Chevy lullaby worked whenever there was a problem, and Sammy proved as susceptible as Dean. Mary laughed that the car sang better than she did, at least to boys with their father’s engine-tuned ears.
The boys slept bonelessly in the back, soothed by the car’s song.
He wished that magic worked on him.

I love that the Chevy lullaby worked as well on Sam as it did on Dean.

Poor John. You know poor, dear, sweet Metallicar tried her damndest to lull BDW after Mary died...it would've been second nature by that point in time!

Given that Sammy did a lot of growing up in that car, I thought it had better be able to sing to him ... even if he never personified it the way Dean did.

I had to fight this one a lot. I think there's another related piece that I might be able to post on another day ...

I'd never seen that! That is so awesome. The only way it would be cooler is if someone knit it. *nods*

Well, then ... I'll be expecting to see an Impala emerging from your needles!!!

Wow. Need music now. Johnny Cash? That'll work! :D The Man Comes to Town. I must be moody too!
Oh yeah... My nephew would always ask "turn it up, Auntie" from the back seat. Always rock music. The stuff his Dad listens to. Pearl Jam. NIN. Lots of bands I've never heard of. OUT LIKE A LIGHT inside 30 seconds! I never understood it.

Hush, little baby, don't you cry; you know your mama was born to die ... Hard to get moodier than that, even with the Man in Black!

I suppose ... whatever makes you feel like home could be your lullaby.

(Love that icon!)

Ouch! I mean seriously.... That smarts! ;)
Thanks! I enjoy it...

Oh, Mary! You know how I love the BDW ones! The Winchester Girl took care of all her men - each one in their own personal way. *sigh* I love it ... and her.
