Dullahan The Douchebag
Well, Halloween is fast approaching so how could I let the season go by without some Winchester fun? Just an FYI, this will most likely be a primarily dialogue story.
Thanks for stopping by! I own nothing to do with SPN.
"Hey, find anything?"
"Nah, not much. Articles are pretty sketchy, nothing in here screams out 'Winchester's Needed Here' dude. The only thing that seems to be similar is that the deaths happen after sunset. Wow, that's a newsflash ain't it? Killing people at night? It's that kind of out of the box thinking that…."
"Okay dude, point taken. Anything else?"
"Sheesh, alright man, don't let your panties get bunched up. The only other thing was that the victims, umm, a couple different dudes got it after they left a kegger and another poor sap got in after leaving a charity ball or something. So, looks like the vics all bought it after…"
"…leaving some kind of celebration."
"Okay, so some piece of shit douchebag decides to get his rocks off by killing some unlucky, in the wrong place at the wrong time party goers heading home after a few and sure, that's all kinds of nasty, but I don't know man. Maybe it's just an asshole who never got laid or never got invited to parties or some dumb shit."
"You still think this is our kind of gig?"
"Definitely. In fact, looks like we found ourselves a straight out of Hollywood, Halloween inspired type job bro."
"Oh right, of course, sounds awesome. In English please."
"Yeah, okay. Try Headless Horseman."
"You heard me."
"Okay, uh, and you didn't think to mention this sooner because...?"
"Wanted to see if you actually bothered to look at anything but Busty Asian Chicks while I've been busy out there working."
"It's Busty Asian Beauties bro and they happen to help me relax."
"Really? And how long did that take? Two minutes?"
"Fricken hilarious. Bite me. You know, I'm almost insulted."
"Uh-huh. Still dude, it warms my heart that you tore yourself away for a few."
"Whatever. Anyway, I guess 'headless horseman' should seem weird but hell, what ain't these days? Huh, it's pretty fricked up when weird is normal.
So are we talking the Icabod Crane kind or the apocalyptic style horsemen? Cuz you know, I really hate those guys."
"Totally Crane style."
"And you know this because… "
"Did some canvassing, talked to the local law enforcement and they've never seen anything like it. Coroner couldn't even determine cause of death. They just died. No blood, no guts, no heart attack or anything else. They just dropped dead."
"Yeah, that's more than a little creepy."
"Then I talked to some witnesses. Had a tough time getting them to open up about it you know but…"
"Wait. Hold up a minute. They told you they saw the Headless Horseman? Seriously? Man, don't tell me. Once they looked into those puppy dog eyes and your patented, crinkled brow of concern, they folded like a stack of cards. I'm actually impressed man. Are you sure they weren't actually crazy cuz that's some strange shit to be shovelling out to a complete stranger. Wow, your powers are stronger than I thought."
"Shut up smart ass. They told me what they thought they saw. A figure in black, a cloak covering his face so they couldn't see it, who rode a black horse…"
"...man, that's gotta ruin your party buzz in a hurry…"
"Anyway, headed to the library after that, did some research and there is a shitload of lore on this dude."
"You mean other than the Disney version cuz man, that one still scares the crap out of me."
"Worse. Get this, Dullahan calls out the name of his victim and that is what will draw out their soul."
"Their… well that's fricken peachy."
"So what though, should be easy right? How hard can it be to track down a headless dude, riding a black horse and carrying his own damn jack-o-lantern melon in his hand? Am I right? Sam?"
"Sure, cuz we do easy so well."
TBC.. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to let me know what you think if you wish to do so, it is always a great indicator to see whether enough interest is out there to continue on. Thanks!
