Ideas?

For the life of me I can't come up with anything for today's prompt.

Prompt: "on the avenue"

Here's "avenue" from the online etymological dictionary, in case that helps:

c.1600, "a way of approach" (originally a military word), from Middle French avenue "way of access," from Old French avenue "act of approaching, arrival," noun use of fem. of avenu, past participle of avenir "to come to, arrive," from Latin advenire "to come to," from ad- "to" (see ad-) + venire "to come" (see venue). Meaning shifted to "a way of approach to a country-house," usually bordered by trees, hence, "a broad, tree-lined roadway" (1650s), then to "wide, main street" (by 1846, especially in U.S.).

Any ideas?

So far the strongest idea I had was another variation of Arthur's return... but, I also briefly thought of Sherlock's future house in Sussex... and then there's always more original fic I could write.

Or I could pull from yalumesse's prompt list at random... and using a random number generator, I get #13:

13. is about a minor character from the POV of a major character

But, I have no ideas for that either... blah... maybe I just need a day off?

A Winchester's thoughts on watching one of the supporting characters drive away (down an avenue.)

What, you want me to do all the work for you? :)

Dean watching Garth drive away or
Sam watching Charlie drive away or
Bobby watching Rufus drive away or
Any of the above watching Sheriff Mills drive away.

Enough options? :P

Sorry, I'm a canon-writer - there has to have actually been an occasion where they could have believably watched the person drive away! :P

So, Charlie is out.

Bobby and Rufus... don't know enough about them to write anything good.

Dean and Garth is a possibility, I suppose.

Don't think they've ever watched Jody drive away, which is unfortunate, considering I love me some Sam+Jody bromance.

Blah, I'll think about it. I think I'm just wholly uninspired at the moment.

Bobby watched Jody drive away in Weekend at Bobbie's when he asked her to extradite Rufus and she said she couldn't.

And he could have watched her drive away with the Leviathan head in Slash Fiction.

Either of the boys could have watched Jody drive away after she helped get Dean back from Chronos.

Both boys watched Garth drive away from the ep with the creature you could only see when drunk.

And they both watched Charlie being driven away in a taxi at the end of the ep when she hacked into Dick Roman's company--remember, she said she never wanted to see them again?

For some reason I just really don't want to write Bobby.

And I'm pretty sure they said goodbye to Jody at the door in the Chronos episode and then talked... unless I'm confusing it with a deleted scene. I'll go back and check, because if Sam did watcher drive away that might be a possibility.

Pretty sure Sam and Dean had a conversation after Garth drove away in the drunk episode, which doesn't give me much time for thoughts.

Charlie got on a bus, and again, Dean and Sam had a conversation and didn't actually watch her leave.

Sorry, I'm really grouchy about writing today for some reason. But I'll check the transcript of the Chronos episode and see if that's a possibility.

Okay, Ms. Grouchy-Pants here was thinking of the deleted scene, which means that in the actual canon-aired version, Sam could have watch Jody drive away.

So, I DO have an idea for what to write. That being said, I'm going to wait until after dinner - because 1)I don't have time to write anything before dinner, and 2)my mood might improve with food. :P

So, thanks for ideas! I'll be back later.

Honestly, the first thing that popped into my mind was the song "42nd Street," but I have no idea if that helps!

Sorry this is late, but you can write from your Demented 'verse about the boys crossing different avenues to reach a place using the Portkey.

Vague, I know. LOL

Too late! It's been written.

Thanks for trying anyway though!
