Fic thoughts and random things

Hello, I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. Yesterday, after having quite a pleasant day and eating quite a lot of turkey, I was a little bored and bursting with good cheer, so I wrote a story...oddly enough, it is the most depressing story I have written.

I'm not quite sure I like it though. It's from Bobby's point of view, but it's not really Bobby's voice...which I can't get a handle on, so it comes out being far too quiet and philosophical. Also, did I mention that it's horribly depressing? 

I like the idea behind it though...

Basically it comes from what we don't see on the show. John dies, and the boys burn him in the woods; Sam dies in Dean's arms, and then we see him  lying in a cabin; Dean dies, and then  we see him in a pine box. The thing these three events have in common is the fact that Bobby was there for all of them. He had the Impala and we know they were close to his place when John died, we know they stayed there for a few weeks afterwards. Bobby had run after the other guy at the end of S2, but we know he had to come back to find Dean holding the dead Sam. Bobby was outside when Dean was mauled by hell hounds, but eventually he would have gone in to find the wreckage there, to help Sam with the body...basically, I thought it would be an excellent way to explore the different deaths of the Winchesters...so yeah, I really like the idea behind the fic, the problem is that it's just not shaping up the way I want it to. But anyway, that's what I'm working on now...in case people were wondering...or have any thoughts on it.

I'm going away for a few days tomorrow, and then again on the 31st, so I'm not sure when I'll get to working on it again, but I think it'd be cool if I was able to get it right.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention that rewatching S2 isn't the only thing I've been up to SPN-wise. I've got things churning in my head. I just wish I had a better handle on Bobby voice.

PS: Why does spellcheck always tell me that "afterwards" is spelt wrong? It's not, is it? I've been saying afterwards my whole life, maybe it's just archaic...
