"Sleep When It's Over" (SPN bday ficlet for meredevachon!) (PG, gen)
the arch of the eyebrows gives it away
Hi, everybody!

Tiny birthday ficlet for meredevachon, who prompted me with "sleep." It's wee, but spoilery for 3x12, "Jus in Bello," so it's behind a cut. Happy birthday, sugar!

Sometime between shaking Henriksen's hand and lying down on the cushy-soft bed at the Wagon Trail Motel, it hits Sam. So much is over.

Not just having to evade the FBI, though that's no small relief. He's finally free of those horrible doubts, those nasty little thoughts that creep in when he's hip-deep in books, wondering if there's any way to keep Dean from dying, trying to quash the feeling that he's going to have to unleash his Antichrist powers and pull Dean out in his own harrowing of hell, after Dean's suffered too much.

Ruby would never have proposed her plan if he had any demon in him at all. He breathes a sigh of relief. He's ready to sleep for a week.

But then there's a knock on the door and Ruby comes waltzing in, the little devil on his shoulder and always the bearer of bad news.

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

Hee, that icon!

It just never stops for Sam. Poor kid.

Oh my god. I didn't even think of that.

Now I want to write a fic where Ruby was suicide missioning for the other side, because he does

Oh, you totally could! Oooooooooh!

Ahhh, Sam.
Ignore Ruby. Most of the people that died were already *dead*. Dean's plan worked very, very well, actually.
*pets him*

And that's a little angle i didn't even think of, so - yay!

Yes, shut up, Ruby. Now.

Yay, thanks!

I'm so glad! And I hope you had a wonderful day!

Ooh, excellent point there! Lovely little piece.

You are such a clever girl! Of course she wouldn't have gone there if it would've hurt Sam. Fantastic! :)

Thank you kindly! I really do hope this occurred to Sam, and that Ruby wasn't just being an idiot.

O_O I had not thought of that! Wow. *brain a-tilt* And this drabble was exquisite!

Thank you so much! It just popped into my head.

Oh, Sam! There's no resting for our boy.
I love this.

No rest at all, poor boy.


It may be a wee ficlet, but it sure throws an interesting point out there. Ruby definitely has her own agenda, and keeping Sam (and Dean) off balance certainly moves that along. Great last line.:)

Ruby is playing some game, certainly. I'm glad this worked for you!

Poor Sam. He's destined never to get that sleep he wants -- this made me think of him in "Shadow" about how he'll sleep for a month when it's all over. Oh, Sam, it's never over.

Yup, that's what I was thinking of too! Poor weary boy.

Excellent catch, that hadn't even occurred to me *g*. Still with the thinking that as long as he doesn't have demon in him he's automatically one of the good guys, though... this a wonderful piece, very powerful despite being short.

Still with the thinking that as long as he doesn't have demon in him he's automatically one of the good guys, though... Absolutely. Sam's a black-and-white kind of guy, I think.

Aw, poor Sam. Never any peace at all, either from the world or from his own doubts and fears. Lovely.

There are so many pressures on him, and this deadline he's working against isn't helping anything. Poor kid.


story of his life - he gets like a minute's respite before everything goes to hell in a handcart again. poor sammy. :(

Oh, absolutely. It just never ends for him.
