Written for the supernatural100 "Moving" challenge (#25). Thanks to kalyw for suggesting I try this and to geminigrl11 just for being her.

Transitory

His life can fit into the Impala’s backseat. He sees himself stretched out on the highway they’re always driving. He lives out of a duffel bag from slummy rest stops to cheap motels. One transition to the next, denoted by monsters and mile markers.

Jess makes him become stationary. There, with her, it's so peaceful that, when it crumbles, he leaves the remnants with her memory and runs again. The road has always lingered before him, whether he was moving or not.

Dean finds freedom in the road; his father finds purpose. Sam doesn’t know what he finds except escape.

Awww, very cool take on the subject. Poor Sam, always moving in the end even if he wishes he weren't.

And see, that wasn't so hard. *bg* Now, are you going to post it at supernatural100...?

Yeah, that wasn't so hard. Just another little thing to chip away at the sanity I hold onto so tenuously as it is....

And I'll probably post it over there tomorrow. It's like posting on a new community just freaks me out for some reason--all these things I'm worried about doing wrong. And I know it's the internet and it's all anonymous and that if it all goes really bad I can just delete the post--but apparently social anxiety even affects me online. Pathetic, I know. But I will post tomorrow. It's at the top of my to do list, right after watering the plants. My day sounds strenuous, huh? :)

*adjusts halo*

*eyes halo suspiciously* I'm beginning not to trust those things. Too much like a noose, I think....

*lol* I'm the same way with email lists. Which is sad, cause I was all about those back in the pre-LJ days. But now LJ doesn't phase me so much where as the email groups intimidate the crap out of me.

My day sounds strenuous, huh? :)

Yeah, sounds like it must be completely terrible. *g*

Funny how our comfort zones change. LJ still scares me on every level--mostly because it's so hard to post things correctly, for me anyway. lj-cuts give me headaches and all the weird formatting issues--ARGH!!!

And you're a terrible influence on me, especially since I seem so freakin' impressionable right now. In other words, my to do list just got shorter as I posted to SN100 about two minutes ago.

Stupid glare-resistant halos....

I saw that you'd posted it last night and was gonna mention how, um, short the night was - apparently I'd blinked and it was suddenly tomorrow! *bg*

Heh. Yeah. Very short night :)

I have absolutely NO self control. None. If you suggest something, I'm bound to do it whether I want to or not.

I don't usually add drabbles to my memories...but this was so right on. I love it, thank you.

I don't usually write drabbles so I'm glad you liked it!

SO love this line. Kind of defines everything pre- and post-Stanford, for the whole W clan.

YAY for drabbles!!! :)

And I so love you!

And honestly I think that line is sad--that's how they define their lives--how far they've gone and what they've killed.

Definitely YAY for drabbles...speaking of which, didn't you write one? :)
