Summary: Sam studied more than law at Stanford
Note: Written for slashthedrabble challenge #72 - Train




Once Dean was certain that Sam would not be walking away from him again, the training began in earnest.

"Four years of soft living hasn't done you any favours."

Dean grinned and danced away from an over-sized fist.

"You're telegraphing your swing, Sam; I could see you coming with my eyes closed! I thought for sure we'd cured you of that after Reno. Have you been picking up bad habits?"

This time Dean managed to dodge Sam's one-two combo, but caught a glancing blow from his unexpected sweeping kick.

"Well look at that, you finally made contact. It's only taken, what, an hour? By the time the sun comes up tomorrow you might have managed to actually bruise me a little, if I stand still for a while."

Dean bounced from foot to foot, flames of unholy glee flickering wildly in his eyes.

"What's the matter, Sammy, cat got your tongue?"

Sam stopped his circling and took a calming breath, using the time to shake the tension from his arms and shoulders. The truth was, he didn't know what to say that wouldn't set Dean to teasing him even more than he was right now.

He was right about Sam not keeping up with his hand-to-hand combat, and the same was true for target practice, weapons maintenance and knife throwing.

Stanford tended to focus more on the intellectual side of things, which was why Sam had enrolled in off-campus yoga classes and taken a couple of semesters of T'ai Chi in his first year.

He'd finally learned to feel comfortable in his own skin, no longer trying to make himself smaller to fit the world around him. He'd used the meditative techniques he'd learned from both classes to overcome the stress that came with being so alone.

Sam had finally found a place for himself out in the 'real' world. It both terrified and thrilled him.

And now he'd given it up and returned to the fold. He'd taken back his rightful place at Dean's side, older and wiser and certain now of what he had to do. This was his second chance.

With one last cleansing breath, he turned and bowed to Dean, and then struck.



Dean swore that his ribs weren't broken, just badly bruised, and then brushed Sam's apologies away with a pained grin, demanding only that his brother tell him where he learned to kick like that.

Helping Dean out of his shirt - I'm not an invalid, Sam, it's just bruises! - Sam told him about the T'ai Chi master who'd approached him after class one night and discreetly suggested he look at taking kickboxing on campus. Apparently, he'd been unnerving the rest of the class with his pent-up aggression. He'd signed up the next day.

"I think that did as much for my stress levels as the yoga."

"Yoga?" Dean's grin was unabashedly salacious. "That means you're even more flexible than you used to be, right? 'Cause there's this position I've always wanted to try, but…"

That was a good one! Loved the teasing and all that. The ending was great. ^_^

Thanks! Two of the reasons I love this show so much are the snark and the teasing banter. It helps make fic writing that much more fun. :D

Hehe, that ending is great.

Nice ficlet :-)

Thanks!

Now Dean's imagining all the ways he can tie Sammy into kinky knots, without using any rope. *g*

LOL. "Yoga?" Dean's grin was unabashedly salacious. "That means you're even more flexible than you used to be, right? 'Cause there's this position I've always wanted to try, but…" *snicker*
Perfect.

Thanks! Dean is such a horndog. ;)

I loved it and I definitely loved the ending. Dean in all his glory.
darkhavens: sn brotherlove [literati]darkhavens on April 17th, 2006 02:01 am (UTC)
Thanks!

I'm glad that last line of Dean's rang true. You know he's got whole pages of the Kama Sutra memorised just because he hasn't been able to try the positions out yet and he doesn't want to get caught out should the opportunity present itself. *g*

OOoh, i like that.
:)
In particular:
He'd finally learned to feel comfortable in his own skin, no longer trying to make himself smaller to fit the world around him. He'd used the meditative techniques he'd learned from both classes to overcome the stress that came with being so alone.

Sam had finally found a place for himself out in the 'real' world. It both terrified and thrilled him.


Yeah. I think that was what Jess was all about - being alone and hating it.
Spiff, bay-bee!
darkhavens: sn no hugging [literati]darkhavens on April 17th, 2006 02:06 am (UTC)
Thank you!

yes, I think Jess was possibly the first person who showed an interest in Sam once he hit Stanford and realised what 'alone' really meant. It was a definite *glomp* reaction. *g*

(I once dated a guy who was 6'7" tall. He always tried to minimise himself, by stooping, or sitting on the floor, or folding in on himself. I wanted to shake him and tell him to stop making himself less than what he was. He didn't last a full week. *g*

He was a good friend (before, and even after that), but a lousy boyfriend.)

Hee! Thanks! I tell the people at work that i have fans, and I'm quite sure none of them believe me. *g*

My fanclub is my friends-of list - free membership and all the fic you can handle. ;)

Adorable icon!
Me: Robin quoteslash_solace on April 17th, 2006 12:14 am (UTC)
Cute/sweet/short/funny. Boy never fails to make me laugh. Dean would think that the only advantages of yoga are the positions he could prolly get Sam in.
darkhavens: sn kink [literati]darkhavens on April 17th, 2006 02:10 am (UTC)
Thank you! Dean probably has a list by now - all the 'impossible' positions he memorised from an old copy of the Kama Sutra he stole from the library when he was seventeen. *g*

BTW, love the icon! :D

OMG!! You really need to finish that last line!!!

Do they do it?? (omg, why do I sound like I'm back in high school?)

Hee! I'm sorry, I ran out of words. 500 was the maximum allowed. *evil grin*

You just know Dean has a list in his head of all the positions he's wanted to try if only..., and now he has a super-flexible Sammy to play with! :D

Love the banter!

Thanks!

I think he really would have required a physical outlet for all his tension. He grew up in a very physical environment and is used to regular action - he had to fill that gap somehow. :D

Ok... i've jest been reading all your wincesty posts... I also have watched 6 supernatural episodes in the last 3 days... mmmmmmmmmm.... I love everybodys icons on all the comments... one of them was so me cos I was a dark angel watcher and sammy's towel scene threw me right back to alec's in DA... purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

*hugs and snuggles* so hawt, so fun, so sexy... good for kk's returned libido!

MUAHAHAHAHAHA
darkhavens: sn pretty when bruised [literati]darkhavens on April 17th, 2006 05:30 pm (UTC)
It's good to hear from you again, and in a new fandom too! I'm glad you enjoyed all my wincesty goodness. (I watched the first 8 eps over Xmyth weekend. I was hooked after the pilot.)

I have most of Jensen's DA episodes but haven't yet watched them, though I have of course seen caps of the towel scene. *flails and swoons*

Someone has an icon combining the DA towel scene and the SPN towel scene, so we get to see both boys wet and wonderful in the same icon! *drools*

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wincest! :D
