Scattered thoughts and promises
20 Hours in America "> by [Bad username: musesfool"]
Sam/Dean. An hour at a time, for each hour Dean has left.
This is Dean's last day before the deal comes due, and I can't praise it highly enough. It's overflowing with Sam and Dean love, all these absolutely lovely, brotherly moments, and it's so incredibly sad, and yet peaceful, too. I've read it three or four times now, and it's still making me sniffly. Without a doubt, one of the best stories dealing with this period of time I've read.
He's got an electronic copy of the owner's manual (found during some late night Googling he's pretty sure Sam knows about, but probably thinks was for porn) on a flash drive he'll attach to the key ring when he's finally ready to hand the keys over to Sam for good. Bobby will do what he can to keep her running, since Sam's always been indifferent at best to the ins and outs of engines, and Dean knows he's leaving her in the safest possible hands that aren't his. It still stings, though.
"Sam'll take care of you, baby," he whispers, wiping moisture off the mirror with his shirt. "He knows I'll haunt his ass if he doesn't."
And I was always going to rec this, but now it's even more important. When you're done with the last story, you should move right ahead to read Flesh for Stone, also by musesfool, which is a really excellent take on the tamlane story for SPN. It's not a sequel to 20 Hours in America at all; it stands completely on its own, but it makes me feel better now. The ending is a thing of awesomeness. Seriously. And as everyone knows, determined, would do anything for Dean!Sam, is my happy place.
