SPN Drabbles: Differences of Opinion (Conversations)
Title: Differences of Opinion
Characters: Sam, Dean
Rating: PG (GEN)
Summary: Two conversation drabbles. Two differences of the same opinion about the same movie.
Notes: Written for supernatural100 Challenge #71 - Serenity. Contains spoilers for the movie "Serenity"


A/N: Couldn't decide which Winchester would be defending "Serenity/Firefly" to the other, so, here's both, in turn. The two drabbles are mutually exclusive. Also, apologies to Firefly fans, probably. I've seen the movie and maybe two episodes, something I intend to remedy when work lets me have my life back.



Explaining Serenity


"Well, that was lame."

"What!? It was an awesome movie!"

"It made no sense, Dean."

"See, if you'd been watching the series when it was on-"

"Law school didn't leave much time for watching TV."

"Yeah, well, chalk up another reason law school sucks."

"Okay, fine. Explain to me what's so awesome about it?"

"Well for one, there's River."

"Dean-"

"And Kaylee, and Inara, and-"

"Dean!"

"What?"

"Besides the women, what's so awesome about the movie? Like for instance, when that pilot guy-"

"Wash."

"Yeah, Wash. Why'd you get all choked up when Wash died?"

"I did not get choked up."

"Did too, you kept clearing your throat."

"Popcorn. Those little husks are nasty."

"You sniffled."

"Hayfever."

"..."

"A cold!"

"Whatever, Dean."

The Naming of Things


"They named their spaceship after a bug?"

"The ship is called Serenity, the ship design is called Firefly."

"So... someone else named a whole bunch of spaceships after a bug."

"Dean-"

"Unless they named them after the hatchback? Maybe the spaceship was made by Pontiac. Only in the future, you know, when cowboys roam outer space."

"You know, Dean, your car is named after an antelope."

"... Don't go there, Sam."

"A cute, furry, small, cud-chewing antelope."

"I mean it."

"Preyed upon by everything in the African savannah."

"Do you want to walk to Florida, Sam? 'Coz in a minute I'm gonna kick your spaceship bug-loving ass out of my antelope."

I love them both, but I think fanboy!Dean would be the one who knows the series, you know?

Most likely, but who knows, maybe Jess and her friends were extreme Browncoats and converted Sam at Stanford...

So I really liked the first one, but the second? Is _awesome_.

Hee! Thanks! :-D

First, I love that these are both all-dialogue. Very well done. :D

And I love Dean's defending his "moment" with 'popcorn husks' and 'hayfever.'

But his,
A cute, furry, small, cud-chewing antelope."
"I mean it."
"Preyed upon by everything in the African savannah."

Was just so wonderfully cruel. :D

I've done some larger all-dialog things too, if you're interested. They're under the "Conversations" tag and vary from schmoopy to cracky.

And I love Dean's defending his "moment" with 'popcorn husks' and 'hayfever.'

Popcorn husks will get ya every time.

But his,
A cute, furry, small, cud-chewing antelope."

Was just so wonderfully cruel. :D


Heh, yeah, Browncoat!Sam gets a little viperous when his show's insulted I guess :-D

I have no idea what Serenity or Firefly's all about, but your two drabbles just kill me. Especially the last one:

"You know, Dean, your car is named after an antelope."
"... Don't go there, Sam."
"A cute, furry, small, cud-chewing antelope."
"I mean it."
"Preyed upon by everything in the African savannah."


LOLZ.

I'm gonna kick your spaceship bug-loving ass out of my antelope.

Oh man, that's a good line. Thanks for writing this.

Thank you for reading it! I'm glad you liked it!

*g*

Cute drabbles! Dean would sooo love Inara. I can totally see him echoing Jayne’s “I’ll be in my bunk” quite a lot.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2007 05:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! Someone pointed out in a review over at ff.net that the actress who plays Inara was supposed to play a love interest for a character played by Jensen Ackles on "Still Life". The show never made it to air, but there is definitely a Pilot and I think a couple episodes filmed out there somewhere. Kind of a neat point of trivia.

Wandered here on a rec. That was fun! And let's the boys each find a little of their inner pop culture geek too.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2007 07:11 am (UTC) (Link)
*blink* Somebody rec'd it? Cool! Thanks for stopping in, and I'm glad you liked it!

Hee! Aw, I love that Dean got all choked up about Wash.

The last line is actually my favorite.

That was fun. (And I think Dean would be the more likely Browncoat).
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 30th, 2007 05:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! Yeah, Dean definitely has stronger fannish tendencies. :-)
girlfan1979 From: girlfan1979 Date: August 2nd, 2007 02:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think they'd both like it, if for different reasons.

Sam's snark here beats Dean's, though, no contest.

Your voices were good in the first piece, and perfect in the second.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: August 3rd, 2007 09:17 am (UTC) (Link)
Aw, thanks!

Dean getting teary over Wash dying - it's a wonderful thing. (Still haven't forgiven Whedon for that.)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: May 24th, 2008 09:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Dude, I hadn't seen a single episode of Firefly when a bunch of friends dragged me off to see Serenity in the theatre and I got teary over Wash dying. Dean, if he followed the series? Totally would.

"Do you want to walk to Florida, Sam? 'Coz in a minute I'm gonna kick your spaceship bug-loving ass out of my antelope."

I'm gonna have that running through my head for weeks! It's a fantabulously perfect bit of Dean!snark.

As far as who would be more likely to be a fanboy of Firefly... I'd have to say that Sam's more likely on that front. As much as Dean seems to be more in-tune with pop culture in general, Sam just fits the off-the-wall sci-fi freak mold a little better than Dean. (I can also see Sam at an anime convention. Damnit. Now I've got another plotbunny. Damn things breed faster than fruit-flies at a dump.)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: December 10th, 2008 07:58 am (UTC) (Link)
Interesting observation. So, Dean's more pop culture and Sam's more geek culture? Yeah, I can see that.

Speaking of Sam and Dean at a con BTW... ;-)
samalander_dawn From: samalander_dawn Date: November 15th, 2009 10:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! love how it works in both directions :D
and y'know, I can actually see these being non-mutually-exclusive....there'd just need to be some time between them....hmmmm
maybe have Dean not have seen the show & movie when Sam's rhapsodizing about it, then catch it while he's in college and have them both catch the movie on tv *nods* yep, that works :D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 15th, 2009 11:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
I still haven't watched the TV series. I own it, it's in the box next to the Dresden Files and everything and has been for about three years now. One of these days when I've got fandom brain-space to spare.

Thanks! If you don't mind me asking, how did you find this one?
