Character: Castiel
Rating: G
Author's Notes: Written for the chelseafrew in the supernatural100 drabble exchange.
Length: 100 words
Disclaimer: Castiel belongs to the CW.
Summary: Movie night.

Castiel, exiled from Heaven, found himself at loose ends. Dean, exasperated by his regular presence, suggested that Castiel ‘catch a freaking movie’. Popped corn was a vital component of the ritual, so Castiel procured some and sat in darkened movie houses, watching images sprayed across the screen in stuttering light.

Each movie was a story, he realized. Stories of father and sons, heroes and villains, man’s inhumanity to man and his search for redemption. Castiel’s faith was renewed. God would not be found in Heaven. He would be on Earth, watching these stories unfold.

Uriel would have liked Charlie Chaplin.

I had to cut this down from 209 words down to 100, but that last line survived every trim. Thanks for the comment, dareyoutodream!

And that last line...I cannot decide whether I find it utterly funny or terribly sad.
Color me delighted, because that is EXACTLY what I felt as I wrote it. Thank you, glassyskies!

Ah, yes. Uriel and his wonderful sense of humor. This was wonderful. I really love stories about Castiel learning more about what it means to be human.

Thank you, dixiehellcat! I find it helps to focus in on a single image, and cutting away anything that's extraneous.

Too freakin adorable. I love Cas taking Dean's words so literally. He would. And he would be uber adorable sitting in a movie theater with a tub of popcorn, becoming increasingly enthralled by what's happening on screen.

*sigh Too cute. Thanks for sharing!
