A-Z Dictionary Challenge
Okay, the way this goes is I grabbed a dictionary and, starting with ‘a’, opened it up at a random page and without looking pointed to a word on the page. Once a word was picked I wasn’t allowed to change it, hence some of the weird words. After choosing a word I read the different definitions for it, and then either the word itself or the definitions would prompt me into writing something. Some of the words got incorporated into these pieces, and some didn’t. The pieces vary from relatively short (like three sentences) to a bit longer (few hundred words). The words that prompted the responses are shown, as is the definition, if any, that the writing relates to.
Disclaimer: I, unfortunately for me, do not own the mentioned characters or the show Supernatural. Both belong to their creator Eric Kripke. Which sucks, 'caus if I did own then Ruby would die a slow and painful death, the awesomeness that is Bobby would be in the show a hell of a lot more, Sam would not be the mega-emo-jerk he is at the moment and there would be a large portion of the show dedicated to Dean and Cas...preferably 'together' if youcatch my drift. XD
This installment is words A-G, part two soon to follow. You can find the fic after the cut.
Amok: if a person or animal runs amok, they behave in a violent and uncontrollable way.
Few things cause Dean Winchester to lose control. A woman being abused, a child in danger, his precious ‘baby’ harmed. These things bring rage and, more often than not, violence but he still manages to keep the rational part of himself in control. The sight of his brother’s blood however…
Boa: a boa, or a boa constrictor is a large snake that kills its prey by coiling around it and crushing it.
Dean’s never liked snakes. But that doesn’t mean he’s scared of them. Nup, no way whatsoever is the Dean Winchester afraid of snakes. Nope. The only reason he was trembling (not in fear dammit!) when that huge, slithering mass made it’s way down the length of his body was because of the ghost sickness. That’s all. He wasn’t actually scared, all right? The stupid ghost mojo just made him slightly…anxious.
Cork: a piece of cork pushed into the end of a bottle to close it.
Some people drink champagne in celebration, Winchesters drink beer. Some pop corks, they twist a cap. Sometimes though, Dean wishes that Sam was one of the ones drinking champagne, was one of the men who popped the cork at their own wedding.
Drum: if something is drumming on a surface, it is hitting it regularly, making a continuous beating sound.
Dean’s a drummer. And it shows his mood. Using the entire dashboard of the Impala as a stage while he drums along to the classic rock blaring through the speakers; that signifies a good mood. Not just an ‘I got laid 10 minutes ago’ mood but a genuine ‘I’m good with life at the moment’ mood.
Sam notices that those types of drummings are occurring less and less.
The other type of drumming happens when Dean’s upset or nervous. He’ll drum his fingers, pinky to pointer, one after the other repeatedly. On the steering wheel, on his leg, on whatever hard surface is in front of him at the time.
Those kinds of drummings are becoming more and more frequent.
Sam likes it better when Dean’s drumming is the one that accompanies the ear-bleeding volume of mullet-rock.
Sam loves Dean, would do anything for him. Dean is the most important person is the world to him, he always was. And that’s why Sam doesn’t tell him everything. It’s why Sam doesn’t tell his brother about everything the demon showed him. It’s because he loves him. Because Sam doesn’t think he could, knows he couldn’t, take it if he told Dean about the demon blood, his demon blood, and Dean hated him. He couldn’t take it if Dean looked at him in disgust, in fear, looked at him like he looks at the things they hunt. Sam couldn’t survive that, so he doesn’t tell him everything.
Forward: if you forward a letter that you have received, you send it on to the person to whom it is addressed at their new address.
Dean was always the one who checked the mail. His father was usually hunting and Sammy was always doing work, the geek. Dean was the one who checked the mail, so it was he who found the letter. Flicking through various junk, credit card applications, hunting correspondence and time-share offers (how did they always find them?), Dean’s heart almost stopped when he saw it. A plain, unassuming envelope, what made it stand out was the crest for Stanford University in the corner and the fact that it was addressed to his brother. To Sammy.
And suddenly Dean knew. Knew what was in the envelope, knew what the letter said, now knew why Sam had been looking so nervous yet excited lately. Dean knew that the contents of what he held in his hand would take his little brother away from him.
Three days before Sam broke the news to John and was subsequently kicked out of Dean’s life, Dean knew. He gave him the letter anyway and gave a small, sad smile when Sam stared at him in shock.
Dean knew what would happen if he gave his brother the acceptance letter, but he gave it to him anyway; because Dean had never in his life been able to deny his Sammy anything he really wanted, even if it ripped his heart out to give it to him.
German: German is the main language spoken in Germany and Austria and is also spoken by many people in Switzerland.
Sam wasn’t amused when, in high school, he was told by his teachers to learn a language. Sure, he had just grinned smugly when Dean had come home a few years ago cursing up a storm about the very same thing…but, come on! He was already taking advanced classes, why did he need to learn a second language? He could speak fluent Latin for God’s sake! Was Latin suddenly not a language? Besides, it was the only language he needed to know. Pfft. Dean was right for once. When were they ever going to need to know German?
Voila, there you have it, part one. Was it good, bad, should I never inflict my writing on people again? I'd love to know what you think. However, I will use flames to torture Ruby 'caus she's a lying bitch and possibly Sam if I'm hating on him at the time (which is about 75% of the time).
