Submarine Races

Every town had one. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it was a scenic overlook on Lake Michigan where couples parked to “watch the submarine races.” Yeah: Midwestern humor. With some monster killing local teenagers, though, the submarines were racing unwatched this Valentine’s Day night, except by him. Alone.

Waiting, watching, he wondered idly whether his parents had ever parked somewhere like this. He wondered whether Sammy had found a girl, out there in Palo Alto, and a car. He wondered if his Dad was lonely.

He kissed his fingertips, and then reached out to touch the Impala’s dashboard.

“Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetheart.”

Thanks, Rap! When I heard about the Valentines Kiss contest, I just couldn't resist having Dean give the Impala one!

There's absolutely nothing wrong with "Awwwww!" under the circumstances!

And I LOVE your icon! Now that's the kind of flying that Dean can do!

His solitariness resonates here. So beautiful with a tiny sprinkle of pain to enhance the sweetness.

Thank you! Almost the instant I read about the Valentines Kiss challenge, I knew I had to have Dean give the car a kiss, and the rest just came to fit. I never even consciously thought about when the story would be set.
frenchlady_ca on February 12th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
I LOVE IT .. And so fitting that he'd be there with the Impala.

Thank you, Frenchy! I couldn't imagine Dean at the submarine races with anyone else ... *grin*

aww. i love that dean loves his baby.
bardicvoice: Dean&Kaz by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on February 14th, 2009 12:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! I think Dean loving her so much is part of why we all feel that way about her too ...

I loved this! And we called them the submarine races a way up here in the Great White North... I'm not even sure if there ever were subs in the Great Lakes... Someone pointed out to me recently that the Impala was truly Dean's OTP.... so I concur!
bardicvoice: Dean&Kaz by <lj user=Cakehole_Cat>bardicvoice on February 16th, 2009 04:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

On the submarine races: yes, there actually have been submarines in the Great Lakes. They turned up now and again to visit the Great Lakes Naval Training Station, and I remember them stopping in Milwaukee and letting folk board for tours sometimes back when I was a kid ... which is longer ago than I care to admit! However, I doubt we ever had more than one sub at a time in the Lakes, so the "racing" part was definitely fictional. *grin*

It's been a long time since I left Milwaukee, so I don't know whether the current generation still uses the same term. But as I thought of Dean giving the car a kiss, the submarine races just seemed the natural venue. :)

Submarine Races.
Mary,

You know him so well. Standing there at the lake he can be who he really is in all his strength and vulnarabiliy and in all his love and lonelyness.
I almost feel embarressed for watching him but I'm glad I did anyway.
