Genre: Pre-series, Character Study
Pairing/Character: Sam, Dean
Summary: Given a week to define himself, Sam watches Dean.
Squeeing: A really interesting fic on perception, and how Sam grows up to view himself. The English major in me loves this, but I like what it says about Sam even more. Good writing, good plot, good point.
Excerpt: “Relax, people, it’s a short assignment. One word, in fact. You will complete this sentence: ‘I am ____.’ You may of course use an article if you want to use a noun to fill in the blank. As in, ‘I am the bomb.’” He grins as they laugh. “If you choose to use an adjective, that’s also fine. No phrases. One word. Distillation. Quintessence. Strip it all away and see what you’re left with.”
