Fic: Sam Is... (PG, Gen)

I had the day off work, and, instead of working on my crossover epic, I wrote this *sheepish smile*. Don't worry though, I still have a chapter of the crossover to post on Wednesday.

Title: Sam Is...
Author:
Rating: PG
Genre: Gen
Words: 5,993
Disclaimer: Transformative work of fiction, not for profit.
Warnings: Spoilers for 6x08
A/N: This is not how it's going to happen, but I felt like writing it anyway...AU for the end of S6? It's basically H/C porn (without actual porn).

Summary: Dean gets Sam back

Sam was catatonic. He just lay there staring at nothing. When Dean waved a hand in front of his face, his eyes tracked, but they didn’t seem to focus.Collapse )

Satan and the car totally made my day!

Awesome fic!

It was a pretty long walk to that punchline, but I think it paid off ;)

I'm very glad you liked it. Thanks for reading and thanks for commenting!

Thank goodness you gave it a happy ending or I would have had to kill myself...

Absolutely loved Sam's first words :)

Haha, no worries...I don't really like tragic endings either ;)

Thank you! Believe it or not, I had no idea what Sam's first words were going to be until I wrote them... :P

Thank you! We'll all keep our fingers crossed for what will happen on the show, but I'm glad I got my own little wishful version out there ;)

That was awesome - I'm a sucker for 'Sam gets his soul back' fics these days and this was one of the best I've read so far.

Thanks! I haven't read too many myself, so it's nice to know that I measure up to the others! :)

This is wonderful - sad, and yet, heartwarming. :) I like that you had the recovery slow and gradual, with every little bit of progress celebrated as a miracle... and that you emphasised the confusion Sam was bound to feel, given the conflict between what his soul and body experienced when separate.

I'm not sure if it is intentional, but the tense changes abruptly from past to present toward the end. Other than that, this is a wonderfully-written story. Kudos! :)

That was intentional...I was trying something out. I take it from your wording that you found it quite jarring and didn't particularly like the tense change. I've been waiting for someone to give me feedback on it, actually, so thanks! I decided to do that right before I posted it in some sort of fit of artistic inspiration...or stupidity. I can't decide whether I like it or not...so let me know if you vote that I should change it back to the past tense.

I'm glad you liked the story! I had a really nice day writing it. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they handle it on the show, because I'm sure it'll be absolutely nothing like this :)

Perfect! I declare THIS cannon! I love it so frickin much, the way you tackled the idea of Sam having two sets of memories and his soul being damaged and Cas fixing Sam's soul the way he did Dean's. and Sam ACTUALLY CARING THAT HE LET DEAN GET TURNED OMG!

Nov. 18th, 2010 12:28 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! :)

I'm sure once Sam gets his soul back - and IF he remembers - he'll be appalled at how he acted when he didn't have his soul. So, while painfully slow recovery from comas don't make for good TV, I'm sure we'll get some good Sammy angst when the show does tackle this event. :)

This? Is awesome. And nope, we'll never see it on the show, but thank goodness we can read it here. Thank you so much!!! (The nose-touching was my favorite part...I re-read it about six times. MEEP).

Thank you! :)

I'm so glad you mentioned the nose touching! Haha, that was one of my favorite bits too...it's my own little form of "In veno veritas" tribute to Sam, Interrupted ;)

I really loved this. Glorious h/c and we all need it, just as badly as Sam. Thank you! &hearts

I came over from a rec by elsewhere_kels, and this is just fantastic. I'm a sucker for little domestic stories like this in which one of the boys gets glued back together (and the other one gets glued back together as a direct result of that too).

It's too much to hope that we'll get anything remotely like this on the show, so I am so very glad you chose to write this, and in such a beautiful fashion, too.

I loved Dean's quiet optimism here, that stubborn Winchester streak that always seems to come through in a pinch. You handled what is essentially very difficult subject matter (having a family member completely incapacitated and dependent on another) with sensitivity and a touch of very sweet humour.

In short, this was lovely. :)

Would you be amenable to having this podficced, by any chance?

Nov. 18th, 2010 06:48 am (UTC)
I'd be very amenable to having this podficced! I love podfics because I have a very boring job and constantly need podcasts and audiobooks in order to keep myself awake :)

The only problem is that I'm thinking of retitling the story. I'm not sure I like "Sam Is..." anymore. Actually, if you feel like voting on a new title, I've got a poll up on my journal. :P Anyway, so I'd want to make a decision on the title before anything was recorded permanently.

But back to you complimenting me...thank you so much! You are too kind. I'm really happy you enjoyed it, and you felt that I treated the subject matter well.

And yes, even though I had the idea, I wasn't actually planning to write it - but then I realized that we were never going to get it on the show, and if I wanted it to exist in some capacity, it was up to me to do it ;)

This was so wonderful. I loved this:

“It wasn’t until he was rinsing Sam’s favourite fancy conditioner out of Sam’s hair that he realized that if Sam could walk around, use the can, and eat on his own, he could probably shower on his own now too.

“You’re totally taking advantage right now, aren’t you?” Dean said.

Sam opened his eyes and looked at Dean.

“Bitch” Dean muttered.

Sam closed his eyes again"

Right then, we knew that things were on the mend. SO perfect!

I love the slow heal, the patience Dean has with him, his ability to control himself as Sam takes the baby steps forward. Just beautiful!

I'd love to see this on the show, but no way. I'm sure they'll brush it off like they do everything else. In the meantime, we have fics like this to get us through. Thank you!

:D

Thank you! I liked that bit too. :)

There would be no way this would make good episodic television, but it makes great fic, and that's good enough for me! ;)

Thanks for reading and commenting!

This was sad, and I hope it never happens in the show! LOL
Well written and very appropriate ending ;) I can't wait for that moment when the boys do the "bitch/jerk" routine. You know things will be okay when Dean calls Sam a bitch and Sam calls Dean a jerk ♥
hells_half_acre
Nov. 18th, 2010 07:54 pm (UTC)

Well, I'm glad you liked it even though it was sad ;)

I hope we eventually get another bitch/jerk exchange too...it's been WAY too long.

Very well done! I loved caring Dean and I hope the show doesn't just gloss over the whole "my soul has been missing for a year" thing and make Sam completely alright once he gets it back.

Thank you!

I doubt they'll gloss over it. It's too rife for angsty angst to just ignore.

I pretty much love this! I really like how Dean prays to Cas and not God, it really fits! Also, the h/c was just beautiful. LOVE the end. "Satan hates your car." *giggles happily* :D This is awesome and thanks so much for sharing! :)
hells_half_acre
Nov. 19th, 2010 02:40 am (UTC)
Thanks!

I imagine that when Dean prays, it's also more like leaving a message on his friend's answering machine than any sort of formal prayer ;)

My friend thinks "Satan hates your car" should be a t-shirt, lol.

Thanks for reading, I'm glad you liked it!
