SPN Drabble: Desperate Times
Title: Desperate Times
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG (GEN)
Summary: Drabble. Snow, a remote cabin and small arms fire.
Notes: My first actual 100-word drabble! I feel like I've passed a fannish milestone. This is the remnant of an expired plot-bunny, written for supernatural100 Challenges #62-Cabin Fever and #58-Snow Day

Desperate Times


Sam stumbled out of bed, gun in hand before he fully awakened. Gunshots. Gunshots and no Dean.

Staying low, Sam peered out the window. Dean on the cabin porch loaded another set of shells and aimed at a snowdrift. Sam cracked the door open.

"Hey, Sam, did I wake you?"

"Gunfire. Tends to do that. What's up?"

"Road's still closed." *BLAM*

"Which makes the snow evil?"

"Yup. We can't get out," *BLAM* "Busted both shovels yesterday digging." *clack-clatter* "So, rocksalt. Melts snow, right?" *Ch-Chack*

"But the road'll be cleared tomorrow-"

"We're out of coffee, Sam." *BLAM*

"...Where's the other shotgun?"

Hee! That's so cute, and that:

"Yup. We can't get out," *BLAM* "Busted both shovels yesterday digging." *clack-clatter* "So, rocksalt. Melts snow, right?" *Ch-Chack*

is so Dean. Also, it's a really effective way of getting quite a bit of action/movement across in a drabble. Well done!

Heh, I wasn't sure if using sound effects in a drabble was considered cheating or not :-)

Cute. And you got the twist/punch/change at the end!

The drabble form is a little like a haiku that way, isn't it.

Great piece - it's SO Dean ;)

Dean seems to me to be the kind of guy that would use weapons to get to coffee...

Hee!! I liked this a lot. Thanks so much for rising to the challenge--and two at once, no less!

*waves to the community mod* Glad it turned out okay! I've done other not-so short things, but I've never tried to make anything exactly 100 words before. It was an interesting challenge!

*grin* I figure the boys go through as much coffee as the Impala goes through gas.

"Road's still closed." *BLAM*
"Which makes the snow evil?"

Well yes, it absolutely does. ;)

Cute!

Yep! Snow's insidious like that. Looks all pretty and sparkly and fun to play in until you have to shovel it, or drive in it. Then it gets eeevil.

Hee, that's adorable! *loves* And snow is definitely eeeeevil.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: February 24th, 2007 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! We had eeevil snow in late November this year that shut the town down for a week, which never happens, ever.

Out of coffee, eep! Yeah, Sam, I think you'd better get that shotgun. *g*

Nifty combining of the prompts.

Thanks! Yeah, coffee-less Dean with a shotgun is a bit scary. :-)

LOL!

Very funny and cute and crazy and snarky:

"Hey, Sam, did I wake you?"
"Gunfire. Tends to do that. What's up?"
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 3rd, 2007 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
*grin* Well, if there's no coffee, something has to get Sam out of bed. :-)
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: November 15th, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! how true it is :D

so is Sam shooting because he's as addicted as Dean or because he's afraid of what Dean will do after a day without coffee....?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 15th, 2009 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
I suspect more of the latter than the former, or a healthy dose of both.

LOL!
