so apparently i cut people better than i cut vegetables
DONE. Been procrastinating on this for weeks, but here it is at last.
Apparently I ship Sam/Castiel now. Huh. Who knew?
Summary: Sam and Castiel find each other, and it isn’t profound, or tragic, or beautiful. They prefer it that way. Sam/Castiel.
Warnings: SPOILERS for s9 uptil 9.05: Dog Dean Afternoon, because that is when I started writing this thing. A bit AU-ish, set some indefinite time in the future. Very minimal swearing, a lot of awkwardness, metapho-abuse, present tense.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Supernatural or any of its characters.
One of Castiel’s most prized possessions is a calendar he picked up from where he works. It holds pride of place on the rickety old refrigerator he managed to purchase second-hand, the edges a little frayed, a little water-marked. He finds the practice of marking days and weeks and years reassuring when once he found it baffling; the false idea of forward movement that it lends is sometimes the only thing that keeps him going. (He once spent hours staring at a clock, counting down second after second until his eyes burned and his shoulders stiffened and grated like chunks of stone. It was hypnotising. It was humbling.)
Okay. Here’s my effort at writing something that is not completely a love song to this episode, because, in case you haven’t guessed it already, I loved this episode to bits.I’m not sure if I’ll be successful; I’ve been thinking and flailing about it a LOT over the last couple of days. (I was reading up on the post-mortem changes in arsenic poisoning yesterday, read “fatty infiltration of the liver”, went, “liver… Vesta… Gadreel!” Six degrees of separation, and all that.) ANYWAY.
Anonymous asked: how is work going? x
Really well, thank you! I’m on my social/preventive medicine rotation right now, travelling to primary health centres everyday, and my schedule has eased up quite a bit. Preparing for my post-graduate entrance exams, though, so there’s that daunting task still. :)
Anonymous asked: You're writing a fic? :O I actually followed this blog because I stumbled upon your lj a few weeks ago! I didn't know you were still writing!
Yes, I am still writing SPN fic! I’d thought I was done with it, but s9 sucked me riiiight back in. I’ve written a couple of s9 fics of late—they’re on my alternate lj—and I’m almost done with a third, which, hopefully, I’ll be posting in a few hours. :)
