Happy birthday to apreludetoanend! When you asked for Dean, at any point between graduating high school and when Sam went off to Stanford, the first part clicked something in my brain. So, Dean on the night of his high school graduation. I hope you enjoy! (Gen, PG)



"Commencement"


Sammy acted like him graduating high school was flat-out amazing, raising his eyebrows significantly and smiling proudly whenever announcements of "seniors, report for graduation rehearsal" came floating out over the PA as they were about to head home. And Dad had swiped the diploma before Dean could even undo the stupid-ass ribbon and unfurl it. Someone, somewhere might even have a picture of him in his cap and gown; he thought he'd seen a flash out of the corner of his eye.

If they wanted to make this into a bigger deal than it was, Dean was fine with that. He damn sure wasn't going to breathe a word of complaint, not when graduating had netted him a reward like this.

He'd lost the tasseled cap during the ceremony, chucking it like a boomerang at the head of the biggest douchebag jock while everyone else threw theirs straight up, but he was still in the polyester sack they called a gown. He pulled it off, his sweaty t-shirt climbing along with it to expose his back. Dean lay down, hot cheek against the warm black leather, and stroked the seat tenderly. "Hey, sweetheart," he said softly. "You're all mine now."

+++++++++++++++++++++
As always, I'd love to hear what you think.

Aww, Dean. Of course that would be the most important part of the day for him. I love it.

Deeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaan!

Thanks!

Oh, I really love this. The last paragraph, in particular, is just perfect and evocative and Dean. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Awww, thank you so much! I had a good time imagining Dean chucking the cap and settling back for a well-deserved rest in his baby. You know he slept in her that first night she was his!

She's such a pretty baby!

Thanks!

He loves her SO much!

Thank you!

the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

this made me want to purr. is that weird?
awesome dean voice, especially with the cap guerrilla tactics. and proud winchesters are LOVE.

Re: the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

"Cap guerrilla"!!!

John and Sam beaming with pride!

And the purring - I guess you figure if you sound a little like the Impala, Dean will call you "sweetheart" too? Clever girl!

This is so perfect, and so very Dean! I love it tons, especially Dean throwing his cap and the little details about Sam and John. Thanks! ♥

It was my pleasure, sugar, and I hope this helps make your day a little brighter!

OH! so much love for this!

Yay, that's wonderful to hear!

This is so DEAN. Wonderful snapshot of how that day would feel for him.

Awww. He's like a man just released from jail, a man just getting his wings, so of course he flies to the lady he loves best. Perfect. :-)

Aw, I love the image of the two of them flying free together! Thanks!

I loved Dean's voice in this, it was so him especially the car love and the cap attack. How much do you want to bet that diploma John snatched is in his cave of wonders somewhere?

How much do you want to bet that diploma John snatched is in his cave of wonders somewhere? That's exactly what I was picturing!

Thanks so much!

Awwwwwwwwwwww. This is canon in my heart!

<3<3<3<3<3

Dean and the Impala belong together, forever and ever!

Thanks so much, sugar!

Terrific. Dean/Impala really is my OTP in this fandom!

Hands down my favorite part Someone, somewhere might even have a picture of him in his cap and gown; he thought he'd seen a flash out of the corner of his eye. - because I can just imagine that none of those Winchester men would think to capture the day with a portrait. Love, love, loved it!!

Oh, absolutely - the Winchesters never think of preserving a moment with a camera, which is a damn shame. Glad you liked!

And Dad had swiped the diploma before Dean could even undo the stupid-ass ribbon and unfurl it.

Aw. John probably thought Dean was going throw it out or something and wanted to stop him, in addition to just plain wanting it for himself.

I think if Dean had dug a little more in that storage facility, he'd have found the diploma there.

aww. ^_^ i love that he gets the impala as a graduation present, and of course that would be the only thing he actually cares about.

(and john totally stashed the diploma in his storage unit. no doubt he knew it would vanish into the ether if he didn't snatch it.)

Absolutely, John wanted to keep that one bit of proof that he hadn't fucked up his kids irredeemably.

Thanks!

Awwww, that was so sweet! I love the way Dean adores his car :)

Dean is such a faithful lover!

This feels very true to teen!Dean and what his priorities must have been at the time. I particularly like the line about the picture of Dean in cap and gown, and how he'd seen a flash out of the corner of his eye, and the detail of Dean chucking his cap at the douchebag jock.

And the suggestiveness of Dean's sweaty, exposed back and his stroking the warm leather? Plus the pillow talk to the car? *cackle* Dean/Impala = OTP!

Oh, absolutely Dean wanted the car more than anything, and I love that John realized it and made the honeymoon possible. Yay!

Love how with so few words, you were able to paint a picture of everyone clearly. :-)

Hey, where's the rest? Cuz there should be...

Just a wee double drabble is all, I'm afraid.
