Oh, how I liked this hun! Awesome. Love me some poetry!
The way it can be both of the boys. Either Dean remembering his deeds in hell and how they would have eventually turned him into a black-eyed demon.
Or Sam slowly connecting and succumbing to his demonic heritage.
LOVE it! It's all in the eyes with both of them, isn't it? Their eyes speak volumes. And both of them are haunted by their actions and finally by themselves, guilt-ridden and driven. Thus, they seem to be on the run most of them time. Their roadtrip echoing the endless chase. Prey rather than hunters. Fair game for their own darker halves. *sighs*
How their mistakes are a stain on their souls, never to get rid off, how they ultimatly fear nothing but fear itself! And they can't escape. Fear and their bad conscience will catch up with them and they will have to face the consequences.
God, how I fear that moment of truth myself. Their own special judgement day. It'll rip them apart and from each other. *shivers with images of a possible cliffie slowly wafting to the surface*
Though one thing extremely surprised me: Macbeth? MACBETH???? You quoting THAT -to paraphrase your own words- EVIL play? The muse must have been very seductive if she made you write this! How'd she bribe you? Offered you some downtime with Dean? And how can I make my muse, firstly, come back to me and, secondly, get into contact with Dean?
Seriously hun, terrific work.
Absolutely awed and deeply impressed by your poetic talent! I could write an essay on this one, I swear!
Hugs ya, Ilka
Hey, I like evil! And it's a scene I've used before with the boys - the subconscious guilt manifesting as a 'physical' stain in their heads, is something that always seems to fit. And, ya know, the image of eitherof them in a nightdress...
But yeah, this one really could be either of the boys. I kind of had both in my head when I was writing it, guess it really depends when you - the reader - decide to set it. It's more early Sam, after finding out what John said to Dean than S4 Sam, but then it's very much S4 Dean too. You takes your pick!
