  • Gemini: “Love Bites” by Def Leppard - “When you make love, do you look in the mirror, who do you think of? Does he look like me? Do you tell lies and say that it’s forever?

  • Libra: “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” by Poison - “Was it something I said or something I did? Did my words not come out right?

  • Sagittarius: “Thunder Road” by Bruce Springsteen - “Roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair, well the night’s busting open and these two lanes will take us anywhere.” / “And if you’re ready to take that long walk, from your front porch to my front seat, the door’s open but the ride ain’t free and I know you’re lonely for words I ain’t spoken, but tonight we’ll be free, all the promises’ll be broken.”

  • Aquarius: “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses - “When I look into your eyes, I can see a love restrained, and darling when I hold you, don’t you know I feel the same, nothing lasts forever and we both know hearts can change, and it’s hard to hold a candle in the cold November rain.” / “Do you need some time on your own?

I had to make sure to get this up tonight so I edited my favorite piece from this weekend which turned out to be this request that hit me with some great imagery right away and it was the first thing that got me into an excellent flow. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!

REQUEST: Adore the writing! Can I request a Dean x reader where the reader is working as a hunter with the Winchesters and is out drinking with them one night? Dean winds up confessing his feelings after Sammy can’t hold his liquor… Humor. Fluff. Awesomeness all around.

 Bon Jovi – You give love a bad name.

Journey- Any way you want it

Journey- Open Arms.

Lyrics consecutively from the Bon Jovi and Journey-Any way you want it in bold.

It had been a quick and easy salt and burn that lead them to the local pub for a celebratory drink or two. You honestly didn’t remember if it had been Sam or Dean that challenged your hustling skills but you were definitely shoving it their faces like a fucking champion. Just for the entertainment value alone, you had played the last game as the drunken girl trying pool for the first time and Sam had played the baffled boyfriend role perfectly.

“It’s just like mini golf.” You smiled up at one of the two men as they glared at your final shot falling into the corner pocket.

You followed Sam back to the table where Dean was sitting nursing his beer. “I don’t think we’ll be able to get away with anymore tonight.” Sam slurred slightly and you thought he might have said weeble in there somewhere. “Not before guys start talking and I don’t feel like breaking any bones tonight.” Sam sat and you were pretty sure he almost missed his seat.

You sat with a soft chuckle and hailed a passing waitress. “Can I get a couple kamikazi shots please?”

Sam cleared his throat and you glanced at him. He was grinning ear to ear. “Do you want some?”  He nodded and you bit the inside of your cheek, and then shrugged. “You heard the man.” You smiled at the waitress who was smirking at Dean.

You turned to Dean. “Do you want in on this action too?”

He nodded with a look you didn’t quite get. “I’m always in for a party.” He smiled.

“Couple shots each, thank you.” You gave the waitress a bright smile not that she would’ve noticed.

Dean finished his beer and the waitress took it from him with a smile and maybe slightly too much eye contact. You rolled your eyes. Someone is probably getting lucky tonight. You brushed the thought away and turned back to face Sam. “So, mister I know everything Winchester.”

He scoffed, “I didn’t say I knew everything.”

You placed your elbow on the table and rested your chin on your hand. “You also said I was a lightweight.”

“Okay, if we’re being technical. One, I was joking for the guys you wanted to hustle and two, I said you were short so probably a low alcohol tolerance.”

Dean cringed comically. “Ouch. You can’t hold a hustle play against a guy. That’s just wrong. If the hustle worked anyway. Did it work?”

You held up the money and smirked. “It was my play, of course it worked.”

Dean grinned and brushed his hands together, “then there’s no flag on the play. Can’t hold it against him.”

You narrowed your eyes, “he’s your brother. How do I know you’re not just playing favorites?”

He leaned across the table, “if I’m going to play favorites, it’s certainly not going to be my brother.” The corner of his mouth lifted and he winked. “Sweetheart.”

Sam chuckled, “yeah. Definitely not me.” His ‘definitely’ sounded a whole lot like a sneeze.

The waitress placed two shots in front of each of you and you knocked your first one back as she took her time placing Dean’s down. She really kicked in the extra effort to touch him with each glass she placed down then practicality leaned over him to ask, “any of you want anything else?”

And by anything else she means her tits. Right in your face. You thought as you smiled at her. I can’t blame you but damn girl have some respect for yourself. You admonished yourself. If she feels comfortable flashing those bad boys, flaunt it if you got it girl. The man’s not taken so why not?  You knocked back your second shot and heard Dean’s voice interrupt your inner dialogue.
