NOTE: sweet charity fic. may7fic
awesome and bought me. She wanted a story about John’s fallout with Elkins (that affects the boys up to the present) and she wanted some shiny sent John’s way and she wanted the Dean-John father-son thing in all its Winchester glory. I tried to stay close to that, but I tweaked it. A lot. Because I wanted Castiel, too. Amongst others. And wanted season 4 involved as well. Ahem.
BETA: All the pretty polishing I couldn’t have done without the shiny beta of the sparkly chemm80
and the amazing erinrua
. Much love to e313
for the handholding as well. Thank you, shiny ladies.
Bobby’s lifting stacks and stacks of books. The dust still flutters in the air, caught unaware in the draughts of Bobby’s whirlwind moves. It’s disconcerting, really, the whole whirlwind thing. If Bobby was a force of nature, he’d be something steady and unyielding, like a mountain, or a glacier. Something with deep roots, close to the ground, bearing weight. Living with it. Something with fewer moves, but heavier momentum.
He’s moving stacks around, freeing long lost surfaces of furniture, all the while grumbling “I’m sure it’s here somewhere”. One book is balancing on the edge, forming the top of a paper tower. Dean shoves his hands deeper in his pockets and watches it lose the fight with gravity.
Sam’s hand shoots out, grabs it midair, places it on top again, using his thigh to keep another book tower steady.
“Are you sure, Bobby?” Sam, the human book prop, says. “You sure it’s not somewhere else?”
“No.” It comes through gritted teeth. “If you say you ain’t got it, it’s here alright. It’s got to be here.”( What was silent )
