Day Forty-One of 41 Days of Metallicar!!!  
Okay, folks -- here's my official last entry in the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration countdown! Tonight, we finally get our boys back with the premiere of season four of Supernatural! That's ample reason to celebrate, and believe me, I will.

But before the joy begins, this final 100-word drabble takes us back to the end of last season, to set the stage for this one.

Dean’s grave was concealed in an empty, weed-choked field in the middle of nowhere, marked only by a featureless white wooden cross identical to those that adorned ten thousand other anonymous roadside shrines to the victims of drunk drivers, ice storms, stupidity, or bad luck. The coordinates were recorded in Sam’s GPS, the only way that anyone could find it, even Sam.
He’d never gone back.
He knew better than anyone that Dean wasn’t there, and that no solace would be found at his grave.
Instead, Sam lived inside his memorial, hunting recklessly with her for his vengeance and salvation.


The image in this drabble intentionally echoes my short story, Last Rites.  I'm still processing last season, I think.

And so ends this year's 41 Days of Metallicar countdown. Welcome, Season Four!

Current Mood: accomplished
Current Music: "Sole Survivor" by Blue Oyster Cult

If I weren't so happy for tonight's premiere, I'd be sobbing right now.

Mary, thank you for these. They were a wonderful way to anticipate the season. *hugs*

You're most welcome, and your tears are wonderful applause. I've had a great time writing them.
