Fic It: yet another comment fic meme

For some reason, summer always puts me in the mood for comment fic memes. Usually I do these on my own, but I figured it might be fun to invite everyone to join in for a change.

a) One prompt per comment, please
b) Let's keep this PG-13, since my mum visits here on occasion ;)
c) Fandoms currently on offer: SPN, SGA, Greco-Roman mythology, Peter Pan, Shakespeare (feel free to add to the list) ETA: Game of Thrones (thanks, wetsammy)
d) Don't have an LJ account? No problem: anonymous commenting is turned on!

- Technicolor Pachycerms (SPN) - 900 Amelia Richardsons. 12,000 Amelia Richardsons!
- At Very Long Last (SGA) - Rodney waits--25 years, 48 millenia, 12 days.
- Lost and Found (Mythology) - Hera has a secret soft spot for one of Zeus's children.
- Moveables (SPN) - Sam's not entirely sure how or why Dean managed to fill his laptop full of recipes

...I probably had entirely too much fun making those. :D

Prompt - SPN
Here's a demo prompt :)

Sam and Dean go shoe-shopping (or clothing-shopping), especially for fed threads. Because I've always wondered about the provenance of this outfit:
(To all: Feel free to interpret that however you may desire to, as I have NO idea what it's supposed to mean. But please no character bashing!)
I think I laughed for at least 3 minutes after getting your initial prompt. If no one else comes up with something for it, I will make it a project to do so myself. :D
Filled - Technicolor Pachyderms
The summer Sam was seven, they lived close enough to a Blockbuster--and John gave them enough cash for groceries--to rent one video every week. Mostly Dean let Sam pick, though when Sam wanted The Princess Bride they almost had a fight in the middle of the store before Dean capitulated, on the grounds that they get The Karate Kid next. (They wound up watching it twice-daily for the entire week, debating every time whether Westley or Inigo was braver.)

Years later, those are the only two movies Sam can remember, aside from the last one before they moved: Dumbo, which Dean really should've vetoed--but Sam had been upset about having to leave and so Dean (as always) had acquiesced.

Sam still has nightmares about that one scene sometimes--well, okay, not so much since his stint down in the Cage; he's had other things to darken his dreams in recent years. But even in college he used to wake up panicked, expecting to still see endless streams of ever-changing pink elephants, melding and splitting and morphing into one grotesquery after another.

"Sam, you all right?" He half expects to see pink elephants now, but instead it's all human faces that blur and blend into each other. "Hey--you're starting to worry me a little." But the faces are narrow and pointy where they should be square, and the hair's too dark and the voice too high and he wants Dean, Dean who can assure him that drinking beer doesn't actually do that and Timothy the mouse is a chump and the elephants weren't even there in the first place, so what's there to be scared of?--but there's no Dean, just this woman he doesn't know, and there's too many of her and why can't everything just go away so he can wake up and be in bed where he should be with Dean in the bed next to his and the familiar dingy walls of their motel room waiting for dad to come home so they can move to the next motel and the next one after that--

"SAM!" the women all say and then the world conveniently goes dark.

When he wakes up he's cold and wet and shivering, and Amelia is wiping him with a damp cloth. "No, don't," she says when he tries to sit up. "We still need to bring your temperature down more." Her mouth quirks in that way that could be either a frown or a smile. "Maybe next time you'll listen to me when I tell you to go get a flu shot."

So he's stuck there on the floor, mostly naked, feeling miserable and strangely bereft and trying not to think of how the whole situation would've had Dean making jokes about nurses and sponge baths.

"At least you fell down in front of the TV," Amelia tells him. "Now that you're awake again, you want me to put something on?"

"Sure," Sam manages despite stiff lips and a dry mouth. "Doesn't matter what."

"And love, twu wuv, will fowwow you fowevver--" says the TV.

"Just not that," Sam says in reply, and doesn't complain when they wind up watching CSI for the next day and a half.

Re: Filled - Technicolor Pachyderms
Awww, I love this. <3333 That sequence in Dumbo is definitely iconic, that's for sure. Really, the whole film is a testament to what can be done in ~50 minutes. Also, I'll have you know that I now have the technicolor pachyderm song stuck in my head. XD Thank you so much for filling my dumb prompt with something so actually good and not dumb at all! <3333333
Re: Filled - Technicolor Pachyderms
It's my favorite kind of prompt, I must admit: slightly wacky and very open to being spun in whatever direction. So I'm glad you enjoyed the outcome! :)

And I watched that song probably close to a dozen times during the process of writing this, which was quite a trip. :P
Mildred calls Dean, as she does now and then, and finds out about Eileen. Dean and Sam go over to her place, stopping first for groceries, and Dean cooks a meal. They talk about life. And sunrises.
SGA John/Rodney After all these years. It's been 10 years since since I started in this fandom.
on the pic. Call me the Debbie Harry song. Young Richard Gere.
Prompt ;)
Sam's not entirely sure how or why Dean managed to fill his laptop full of recipes ;)
GoT: Hide and seek at Winterfell, and young Jon finds a trunk of Lyanna's things in the castle.
Mythology: Hera has a secret soft spot for one of Zeus's children.
