It's the Little Things that Count

Title: It’s the little things that count.

Author: YurikoSPN

Original Imagine Link: Imagine seeing Bobby as a father-figure, so when Father’s Day comes around, you send him a little card and a gift, nothing big, but he is still incredibly touched.”

Warnings: Reader has no specified gender. Other than that, nothing in particular.

Word Count: 858.

Summary: Reader is Bobby’s surrogate child ever since their parents died during a case he was working on with Rufus Turner. Although they can’t visit Bobby to celebrate Father’s Day because they’re studying overseas, they choose to make it clear how much they appreciate the grumpy, old hunter’s efforts to take care of them for so long.

Fic:

The day at Bobby’s starts at 3:26 a.m. to an old wall phone with a sharpie-written ‘FBI’ label ringing away into the night.

It is dark and freezing outside. Thin droplets of rain pitapat cyclically on the rooftop, and regardless of the rustiness of his joints and the beginnings of lumbar rheumatism twinging at his lower back, Bobby is quick to pick up the call before the Winchester brothers – especially Sam, who’s knocked out cold on the couch thanks to the power of painkillers – so much as flutter their eyelids and fall into deep slumber again.

1D as dolls

Liam: Extra tall classic Victorian porcelain doll with tight ringlet curls. You can never take it out of its box or else it will lose its value. No one knows you have already done this twice.

Harry: Realistic ball-jointed doll. Very popular within the doll collecting and bjd community. One picture from a photoshoot you did with it went viral. No one ever credits it on Pinterest. 

But also Harry: This 17th century wooden doll.

Niall: 1970′s baby doll. Eyes that are unnaturally blue, pink skin and hair that is difficult to brush and unnaturally yellow. Always wearing questionable attire. However, very popular and your favorite.

Louis: Antique German sailor boy porcelain doll. Rare, classic and very collectible. It is your proudest find. You keep it up on display in the living room so children can ask if they can play with it and you can say no.

But also Louis: A murderous ventriloquist dummy possessed by a demonic entity.
