More Winchester Family Secrets

Since I completely and utterly fail at posting more 'Fox verse, here are a few more Winchester Secrets I found on my harddrive. And I promise when things calm down a little in real life, I'll get back to writing again but at the moment I'm flailing to keep my head above water with my workload. I haven't abandoned this story though!

More Winchester Family Secrets

1. It's harder for Dean to fall asleep now. He's gotten used to Sam and Dad's snores as a lullaby, but Alec's breathing in the dark always freaks him out right when he's about to fall asleep. He'll get to that edge of unawareness, hear foreign breathing, and startle awake in a panic thinking they’re under attack. It takes Dean almost a month to get used to Alec's breathing.

2. John touches Alec more then he means to. He never realized he missed his boys being at a cuddly age until he met this mini-Dean who melts into his side when they sit at diners. It took him awhile to realize that as much as Alec seemed to crave the ruffled hair, the hand on the shoulder, and the piggyback rides, the kid would never initiate contact. If John reached out first, the kid became as cuddly as a kitten, but if John didn’t, the kid never touched anyone, even by accident.

3. Alec knows about the Nomlies John fights, he just pretends he doesn't because John doesn't want him to know. Alec learns Latin, just in case.

4. Sam likes teaching Alec things. At first he'd get annoyed because Alec retained information so easily, then he realized that there was a difference between memorizing facts and understanding new material. Alec does extremely well in Math, but sucks at English.

5. Dean watches Sam and Alec pouring over a book, heads close together, and sometimes he wonders if Manticore picked the wrong Winchester to clone.

*meep*

There were awesome. #5 just made me wanna cuddle Dean - stop thinking so badly about yourself, Dean!

I love these little insights into the Winchesters. What a great idea!

Oh, and what a coincidence, cuz I just recc'd the first Winchester Secrets on Storyfinders yesterday! LOL

Great update, girlie! :D

Did you? Aw, thanks! Now I feel all special! I love Storyfinders but I've had hardly any internet time these past two weeks so I haven't been able to do my usual community stalking there.

And I wanted to see if there was anything I could post in this 'verse since I've abandoned it for so woefully long and I remembered I didn't post all my secrets, so these were the ones that didn't make the first cut. I like them all but I didn't want it to be too Alec-centric. Oh well, this list is definitely Alec-centric. I found some other things that I wrote and meant to polish before posting so maybe I'll find some time to do that soon. I hate leaving things dangling for so long.

Um, apparently I ramble when I'm tired and internet-deprived. I'll stop yapping your ear off now. *g*

It's okay - you're busy! :) It was awesome of you to post something for us at all, especially right before/during finals!

I was in the mood for some Alec, so Alec-centric rocked. :P I think I'm gonna go re-read the 'verse so far, cuz this has put me in the mood.

Oh we're definitely in the "during finals" portion of the semester. One of the downfalls of studying theatre and dance is our finals tend to be performance based. Instead of studying for a test, I'm scrambling to create mini-plays using elements learned in class. Or I'm memorizing lines or learning dances for mock auditions. And then we also have the more traditional "crappy ass long papers" we have to write. All of this combined with rehearsals every night all night, and a billion lines to learn... it makes my brain hurt. The good news is our final pieces are really shaping up and we're doing some awesome things. Our show is also coming together and even though I'm physically sore I'm feeling like it's a good "I got things accomplished" sore as opposed to a "I want to whine about this" soreness. *g*

And I'm glad you're in the mood for Alec because I do tend to be a little Alec focused in these stories. I can't resist the idea of wee!Dean and John getting a second chance plus suddenly changed family dynamics fascinates me... mostly because I'm a huge dork. *g* I do try to focus on other characters too... but Alec's a loud one. He always wants to be the main character. *g*

This is really wonderful, Lori - I loved it. I hope you have time to write more soon, sweetie. Thanks for posting it! :)

I get a break December 12th. That's a week right? So give me a week and then I may be able to have a life again... if only for a couple weeks. It's mostly the finals and the auditions and the rehearsals that are eating up all my free time and all my creative energy. It's really hard to write things when you're spending all your free time memorizing lines. I'm discovering that memorizing lines does wonderful things for learning more about that character... but it completely kills any other creative impulses.

Okay and now I'm rambling again. *g* Sorry it's my first night in awhile I've had more then thirty minutes to be online. Apparently I get randomly chatty when I'm forced away from my beloved internet.

Hi, this was a lovely piece of writing, I'm so glad you haven't forgotten about your 'Fox 'verse'! I think I liked #4 most, where Sam finally seems to accept Alec as a younger brother and finds common language with him. And I liked it that you've made Alec suck at something, it's good to know (especially for the boys, I guess), that he is human after all and not always perfect.

I definitely haven't forgotten about it, life's just been insane and theres been no TIME to write. I'm hoping to get more writing done during Winter Break though.

And I figure Alec sucks at a lot of things. He's got almost a perfect memory but that doesn't mean he UNDERSTANDS things. I actually have a little list of things that Alec sucks at. Sure it's canon that he learned how to play concert level piano in three days... but it's also canon that he fell off his bike while trying to show off. *g*

More scrummy secrets - yum.
I don't have a problem with Alec centric. Bring it on.
So, #2 - is Alec only cuddling up to John because he senses that's what John wants?

Part of it is pleasing John, but this is also a kid who's starved for affection. It's human nature to crave physical contact so when he's given permission by John initiating contact, Alec is quite happy to bask under the attention.

I loved this! I would love to see how John realizes that Alec wants contact but he has to be one to initiate it! A story based on #2 would be awesome! Happy Holidays. Hope you're New Year is very fun!

X-over fan
I loved DA when it first came out and got S1 on DVD, sad to see it go. I just started watching SPN last year (up to S3 now) and got DA S2 for Christmas when i realized the whole Alec/Dean thing. So needless to say, I am sooo enjoying your cross over work! I'd like to add you as a friend to keep up with your postings. Looking forward to more! -az

I'm so glad you enjoy it! I don't have a FF.net account. I need to update this verse more but real life keeps getting in the way. I don't really have finals, but good luck on yours!

aw cute. it's like Alec's got all the qualities of the Winchesters. Straight up soldier from John, smarts from Sam, and fiery personality from Dean. muy interesante.

*g* It's one of the many reasons I couldn't resist a crossover. Alec definitely is a Winchester.
