SPN Fic: Living the Lie

Characters: Dean, Sam, Impala
Spoilers: Lazarus Rising
Summary: It's much easier to live the lie.

Dean popped the hood to the Impala and gave the engine a long, intense look. While he'd entrusted his baby to Sam for only four months, it seemed like a lifetime. At least for him. He knew he didn't have to check – hell, he shouldn't check – but he had to be sure.

As he leaned in deeper, Dean stroked the frame and let out a contented sigh. He knew she had missed him as much as he had missed her.

"Are you…petting the car?"

Dean bolted upright and pulled his best poker face, hoping Sam wouldn't see through him. "No," he said. "Just admiring your work."

"My work?" Sam glanced at the Impala as he took a swig from his open bottle. "Right."

"She's perfect."

"You're such a liar."

Dean glanced back at the Impala. The windshield wiper fluid was low and the oil needed changing a month ago. Still, he knew Sam had done the best he could, considering.

"You done good, Sammy."


Dean nodded. "Yeah."

There was a hint of a smile on Sam's face, one the few genuine smiles he could be sure of since he'd returned from the Pit. Dean figured he'd take what he could.

"Well, now that you're back, she'll get the treatment she deserves." Sam handled him an unopened bottle of beer. "Just like it should be."

"Yeah. Everything's normal again."

They both took a swig and leaned against the Impala. And even though they knew it wasn't true, they decided to keep living the lie.

Hey :) How've you been? How are things?

And thanks! I'm glad you liked it! :)

I'm good. *grin* It's been so long! How about you? I'm thrilled to see you love SPN too!

I'm not bad. Some rough patches here and there, but otherwise not too bad.

And yes. I adore SPN. It's my fave show. *grins* It's like...my obsessive fandom at the moment LOL

*hugs* Hope things look up for you.

OMG me too. *huggles SPN* I tried to ignore it, but one day late in season one, I didn't get off the couch quick enough and I've been hooked since the teaser. lol

I haven't been able to get to a con yet, though. I'd like to some day. I read briefly about you watching the con videos and getting upset about the way people act--I don't know exactly what incident, if there is one, that you were referring to, but I know I get so upset when people are stupid and mean. Like fangirls jumping on Jensen. WTF? And the RUDE, ignorant and completely uncalled for comments people make to Jared on the stage. OMG what the h*ll is wrong with people?

Aside from someone pinching MS's butt in the early years, I don't think we ever had fan behavior like this. So disrepectful. It really gives us a bad name. It really makes me sick. *end of rant* lol

I haven't been to a con yet either. I'd love to so so bad, but I don't have the money for it. Then again, after how I hear some fans behave...LOL

And yeah. The con vids were same old, same old. Rude stuff to Jensen and Jared which is a shame. Not all fans are this way, but man. The crazy ones make SG-1 fandom look tame!

I'm not really into SPN fandom even if I'd like to be. Parts of it are just too crazy for me - actor bashing, brother wars, silly petty stuff. I have not time for that. So I mainly stick to my flist to chat and squee and a few comms to post fic and stuff. That way I can stay sane *pets show*

I didn't discover the show as early as you did. I always wanted to watch it, but when the net exploded with SPN squee, I was like whoa. *backs away* My first exposure was the the last 20 minutes of IMTOD. That prompted me to buy the S1 DVDs. I jumped into S2 in the later half of the season and watched on and off. I watched S3 live and finished off S2 during the S3 mid-season mucked up by strile hiatus. I had been fighting my love for the show for a long time, but I offically "came out" last January LOL

But I am loving this season. It's breaking my heart!

It does get VERY crazy, I must say. I usually stick to my corner. lol Like Dean says, "Demons I get. Please are just plain crazy."

I'm glad it's FINALLY starting to get the recognition it deserves. It truly is an AMAZING show. I hope they go on for more than 5 seasons. At least 6. I trust in the Kripke.

And congrats on your "coming out"! LOL

This season has been one jaw-dropping scene after the other...and then the way they left us hanging? Kripke is evil. lol

Damn, can that boy cry, or what? lol

Thank you!

Oh, boys.
This is so them. Lying liars that lie :)

Thanks! I know. They are such liars *cries* half their problems would be over if they were honest with each other.

But it makes them human. And angsty. I like the angsty :)

oh yeah, avoid talking about any real issues and focus on what you *can* talk about, namely the car. :)

LOL Poor Impala. Always getting dragged into the boys' messes ;)

*sighs* Awesome :) Definitely in character...

And I completely agree with you and dragonfly_sg1, what the hell is with the fans at the conventions?? There is no way they'd get a decent one in England, but it seems like a few people are letting us fans down! I haven't watched all of the ones on youtube yet, but from the ones I have seen, there was one question someone asked and you could see Jared get pissed off. What the hell? *breathes*
