Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG, gen
Length: 100 words
Series: devon99 suggested a series of AU drabbles. I'm calling them Neverweres.
Spoilers: Vague season 1 and 2 spoilers.
Summary: A little more tequila, a little less demon-hunting ... things could’ve gone a whole other way.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

What, the hot guy working the register? Uh-uh. That’s Dean Winchester. And the Winchesters are damaged goods. The dad’s been banned from every bar in Lawrence.

Dean’s a high school drop-out. He never works the night shift. Told the manager it’s because his brother Sam has nightmares.

I know, right?

Sam’s the quiet one. The smart one. But there’s something creepy about that kid. He draws awful things – blood and fire and yellow eyes. Last year Johnny Marshall, who’d been pushing Sam around, walked off the soccer field and stepped in front of a bus.

Exactly. Better keep your distance.

Damn, k, how much back story can you get into 100 words? (Quite a lot, apparently.)

*shivers*

Every time I see one of these, I'm reminded you're seriously amazing at drabble type fiction. That one gave me goosebumps.

Thanks, whitereflection! I worked through 4 full re-writes to get the narrator's inflections just right.

Wow, you packed so much story into 100 words here. And having it all related by a third party made it instantly unsettling and worrying.

I first tried setting this entirely in Sam's head, and then when that didn't fly, I pushed it as far outside as I could get. By your reaction, I think it worked!

OMG OMG OMG.

This is like one of the best teasers of a 'verse that I have ever read. Really, really lovely. Would you mind posting this at this community? I think it will be a wonderful thing to share.

Why thank you, labseaph! This series of drabbles is about trying to create the AU in people's minds, strike some sparks, so I proably won't create a full on 'verse. But I encourage you to take a swing at it!

I didn't even know that comm existed ... posted, thanks!
