Realization

AUTHOR:scullspeare
SUMMARY: 11.01 Drabble. The moment when Sam knew.
RATING: PG-13
SPOILERS: For 11.01 - Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire
WARNINGS: None.
WORD COUNT: 100
AUTHOR'S NOTE: For Madebyme, who led me to a new corner of LJ for SPN fans.


When they backed away, Sam knew.

It wasn’t when the nurse’s blood spilled on him; then, there was still hope. He felt no different.

He’d been immune to the Croatoan virus – why not this too?

When they pinned him to the wall, still he held on to hope. It was three against one, but he’d beaten worse odds. Way worse.

But when they let go and backed away, he knew. In that instant, hope vanished.

His legs gave way and he crumpled to the floor, sick at the realization.

He was infected. He was rabid.

He was one of them.

Welcome to SPN_X! :D Hope you have fun here!

It will be interesting to see where they go with this storyline. Will Sam find a cure? Will his demonblood or the traces of angel-grace left over from Lucifer and Gadreel eventually overcome the infection? Or will somebody cure him? Cas? The Darkness? I really hope he doesn't just get 'magicked' better!

I think you nailed Sam's thoughts there... Poor Sam.

Poor Sam, indeed. I think he needs a hug. Any volunteers? :-)

Welcome!!! *grabs you into a huge big hug* I'm so excited to see you here, thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come and play with us throughout the season ♥

I loved this, you perfectly captured Sam's thought process; the hope, doubt, and fear.

It's fascinating to think about what the 'ragers' were sniffing on Sam; the Darkness infection? demon blood? residual angel grace? something else? So many possibilities, and I sure hope we get a satisfying solution to this. If not, that's what we're all here for, right? ;)

Thanks for your note, and you're very welcome. It was also a bit selfish on my part because I love your writing, and was hoping to tempt into some drabbles/coda etc. *hugs again*

*Hugs you right back* I like the positive vibe around here - something not always easy to find. Seems like a fun place to hang out so thanks again for the heads up.

And I haven't written a drabble in eons, so that was fun too. Sometimes you just need the right person giving you a friendly kick in the behind. :-)

Exactly! I like to fill my friends list with positivity, and this comm is perfect for that!

Drabbles are fun! A lot of people here last year wrote something for every episode, and while I'm not going to aim quite that high, I'm going to try to write a drabble when I can. They're low pressure and can be a blast to write! I'm really happy that you dropped by :)

OMG, poor Sam. You have got me even more stoked for tonight's second ep than before. :) I'm practically singing "Tonight, Tonight" from West Side Story.
