Title: Scratching at the Wall
Character: Sam
Rating: PG, gen
Length: 100 words
Disclaimer: Supernatural belong to the CW.
Thanks to: My beta, tifaching, who helped me piece together two very different versions of this drabble.
Author's Notes: The last 30 seconds of 'Unforgiven' was so unfortunate, I decided that I needed to write my own version.
Summary: Don't look for what you don't want to find.

Sam dreams.

Sam dreams of a cavern, walls and ceiling lost to distant shadows. He is drawn to the edge of a still, dark pool. A single glistening drop of liquid falls from far above. It hits the surface with a quiet plink that echoes off of rock and other, hidden things.

Driven by thirst, Sam kneels and reaches into the pool. He flinches away from the flames reflected in the depths, cups the liquid in trembling hands and brings it to his lips.

It burns.

Sam wakes to a blinding headache and his brother’s voice, frantically calling him back.

Oh! The part where Dumbledore brings Harry with him to get the mystical whatsit? I hadn't thought of it, but you're right!

Yup, that's the one! Beautiful.

Poor Sam, so much like that just waiting. And you know it's not going to be locked up forever.

I forgot to mention how much I liked the "other hidden things." Just so ominous.

Thanks! Ominous was definitely what I was going for. Subtlety is the watchword when it comes to horror.

*laughs* I know, right? I realize the budget may be getting a bit tight, but they should have given John Marcynuk a couple hundred bucks to come up with an appropriate few feet of floor/wall in the studio, done a close-up Jared, and let him really show off his acting chops. Hinting at Hell would have been FAR more effective that the cheesy special effects.

Very nice and creepy. The "other hidden things" really fires the imagination. Pun fully intended.lol

"It burns"
ok, yeah, that's scary- it would certainly make me wish not to tear down that wall.
But Sam is a stubborn bitch- you can tell him anything, but you can't tell him much:(
