A/N: First things first; I really need to figure out a new name for myself... I had originally come to to do Harry Potter stories and thought that my name would be perfect, not realizing at the time that my interests would expand to other things. A quick glance at my profile page can show how quickly that changed...
So now, dear readers and reviewers, I am on the search for a new name! Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated and considered, interesting ones will even receive feedback!
Now, on to the inspiration for this collection of dabbles; I have recently become enamored with the TV show Supernatural, I am even saving up to go to the convention being held in Toronto(please, please, please, please...!) and I was browsing the gallery for the show and found some really good stories... Then I stumbled upon FeathersMcStrange's wonderful The Road So Far shorts and just fell in love with them. It was a few reviews later that I just knew I had to write my own!
So, thank you, FeathersMcStrange. I hope that these are as good as your own!
(Really, guys, you should go read them! But don't forget to read mine too!)
Now that this rather long author's note is out of the way, we can get onto the dabble!
Chapter One: Author
Most authors just want to write a good story.
No, scratch that; most authors want to write a really great story, a really fantastic story. Have it touch someone's life, make a difference somehow, make the darkness in the world fade a little... Maybe even give people hope that tomorrow might be a brighter day than the one they're currently living in...
Most authors do not expect the characters that they write to suddenly appear on their doorstep and demand reasons for why their lives had to be such hell.
Sure, some writers base characters on people that they know; the main character's hot girlfriend that loves him so unconditionally that she spurns all others might have traits of that popular chick that you never seem to get because you're always that 'weird nerd' or the psycho, wanna-take-over-the-world villain of the piece has the same sneer the bully that stole your lunch money and somehow managed to duct tape you to the assembly room wall in your underwear had...
Chuck certainly did not expect Sam and Dean Winchester-the actual Sam and Dean, and not another pair of crazy fans-to be standing on his porch, despite the fact that he had just been writing that they were coming there. To him, it had always been a book series, just a pair of characters going through adventures that helped garner him praise, and some times was the only thing that kept the roof over his head... Now here they were, the two people he had put through both torture and horrible writing, demanding to know what the hell was going on.
At first, he thought that it was a joke; who would believe that people you thought you made up in your head would come knocking on your door? Nobody, that's who, and he had become extremely tried of people demanding to know what was happening to the Winchesters when he nearly made him sick to write it half the time. So he did what any sensible person would have done, he attempted to shut the door on them, and get back to what his life amounted to, now that he stopped publishing the story of the two that seemed determined to overtake his entire life.
Dean had other plans and those plans did not include Chuck slamming the door in their faces. Needless to say, it didn't take a lot of convincing after that for Chuck to realize that he was actually dealing with the characters from his books, live and in person.
As he stood there, staring at the pair of them, in the flesh and blood, not merely the product of one massive headache and nightmares, Chuck was certain of two things: One, Dean was probably going to try to kill him before the day was out... and two?
He really needed a drink.
Meh, I'm not sure about this, but it's only the beginning! I swear they will get better as I go!
So, read, review, give me a prompt or two... Have I made a rhyme? :D
