Ficlet: Oorah (SPN drabble, John/Castiel)

So, yeah - this is so not my ship, but [personal profile] jaimeykay is on board with it, and she's awesome and needs to get better soon. When it comes to special occasions, I can be a little flexible in my shipping - for a hundred words at least.

Title: Oorah
Author: moragmacpherson
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: John/Castiel
Spoilers: None
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: All characters contained herein are the property of Eric Kripke, the CW, and their associated corporate identities.
Summary: It sounds like a grunt but it's more than a word.

Castiel leaned back. "What does 'oorah' mean?"

John's relaxed smile dropped for a moment. "You heard that, huh?" Then it returned, now tinged with nostalgia and a hint of sadness. "It's something we said in the Corps. It's, uh, a battle cry, it's a reply, it's all kinds of things. Says all the things brothers-in-arms need to say to each other." He laughed once. "Pretty much means whatever you want, other than 'no'."

"I see." Castiel turned onto his side and laid his hand on John's shoulder. "So, were I to ask if you wanted to do that again...?"

I must admit this had me giggling, which might not have been the effect you were going for. Still, a lovely little nugget that says so much with so few.

I think I could read this about a million times and I'd still be grinning like a moron. It's just so, I don't know - bittersweet, but hopeful, and loving - and I need to invent new words to express how much I love this.

Heh - glad you liked it - all of the Marines in my life are big with the bittersweet, hopeful, and loving, so they probably deserve the credit. So go forth and hug a Marine - he'll probably hold the door open for you while you're at it.

Спасибо за информацию
