SPN drabble: "Reclaim, Restore, Release"

Fandom: Supernatural
Character: Alastair
Rating: PG
Challenge: Written for the spn_drabble prompt "droplet", and supernatural100 prompt #189, "demon"
Length: 100 words
Summary: Alastair's reaction to the Winchesters in 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

Alastair watched the Winchesters escape. A droplet of Sam’s blood slid down the shattered glass. As if a whelp with a distant echo of Azazel’s power and an astrapi blade could threaten him.

But Dean. Dean had come so far, in the Pit. He’d developed an appetite and instinct for pain that rivaled Alastair’s own. Dean was his masterpiece. His protégé. Glorious.

Then the angels stole him. They bound him in flesh and guilt and shame, until he was just a shadow of his true self. Alastair can’t wait to finish up this seal business, and take his boy home.

I really like this! I love stories that feature Alistair and you've really captured his particular brand of creepy affection. That line about Sam as a whelp with an echo of Azazel's power was also really good. Well done!

'Creepy affection' sums it up nicely. I'm interested in how Alastair dismisses Sam in canon, when other demons seem to think he's significant. Thank you, ginzai!

Thank you, samidha! Dean's such a mess in season 4, I wondered what Alistair might make of it.

THERE CAN NEVER BE ENOUGH ALASTAIR!FIC.

Lovelovelove this, especially the snarky, flippant attitude you got in there at the end with the last line. Very nice.
