This was inspired by a couple of things. One of which was the line in the pilot episode that Dean hadn’t spoken to Sam in two years, which meant that at some stage during Sam’s Stanford years, they had broken contact. Another was the fight between Sam and John which led to Sam leaving for college. I was intrigued as to what it was about, and so I decided to play around with it a bit myself.
Don’t know if I’m entirely happy with the result – I think it probably could have been a bit meatier, given the volatile personalities of the two Winchesters concerned, i.e. John and Sam.
The third thing that inspired me for this one-shot was Sam’s comment in the season two episode Houses Of The Holy, when he told Dean he prayed every day. The little wheels in my freaky brain started turning, wondering where and when he began to pray, since the rest of his family weren’t that way inclined. So I ran with the Stanford years as Sam’s greatest change, and possibly where he started his prayer life. And I’m damned sure Dean would be at or very near the top of the list for Sam’s prayers.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this, my first Christmas fic. Which was inspired by my friend and fellow fanfic writer, Windyfontaine, who put the thought into my head that I should do a Christmas fic....and which kicked off the whole tradition of me doing one every year from then on. Darn plot bunnies....
