They would have sat on the same side, but that would have defeated the purpose.

The church was shaped like a cross if you saw it from above, and they were seated at the crosspoint, looking down towards the altar, the tiny gathering there around it. The priest's voice was hushed, still, and there were giggles and unabashedly happy smiles; a young and very pregnant girl stood beside a tall and stupidly happy boy, the bride's side were practically holding shotguns and the groom's side weren't looked very pleased, either.

The couple didn't care, eyes shining and mouths grinning, too quick on the uptake when it came to and now you may kiss the bride.

Sam looked across the aisle at Dean, shook his head. Dean sighed, nodded, went back to whetting the blade of the biggest knife he could sneak in without drawing attention to himself.

They waited. The priest looked down the aisle, caught Dean's eyes, quirked his head to the side and stood still. Dean shrugged, looked back over across the aisle at Sam; Sam shrugged too. They kept waiting.

"You sure it was today?" Sam whispered softly, not wanting to disturb anybody or anything.

"Yeah. Canadian common law has a loophole - anybody can get married if they post the banns and no one objects. That's how the whole thing got legalized, anyways." Dean shot another sideays glaces at Sam. "But you knew that already, didn't you?"

Sam nodded, smiled.


It took them a while to find a Catholic priest that didn't object, the law stated that anybody who didn't want to preside over a same-marriage didn't have to and a lot of people didn't. Priests, especially.

Took them even longer until banns for somebody were annouced, and they were lucky to catch it because this was especially hush-hushed.


The light barely made it past the curtains, shifting in the draft over the heater. It moved, light slanting across their bare shoulders, bellies, sleepy wetslick skin. Sam woke up, travel clock blinking 12:00, 12:00, moved enough to touch his fingertips to the veins on the inside of Dean's wrist.

"'cha know it's bad luck to see the bride before the wedding?"

Dean's voice was so quiet Sam could barely hear him, but the snort on the tail end of that sentence was unmistakeable.

Sam yawned, replied with an elbow to ribs and Dean doubled over, laughing eyes bright, throwing last night's dirty clothes at Sam's face.


The church was a hundred miles in the rearview mirror, the whole town was back behind them, and Sam was still trying to get used to the feel of it, moving it around in his head. Wasn't legal, couldn't be, but it didn't have to in order for it to count. Three days already and it was still so fresh, he looked over at Dean sleeping in the shotgun side, at the black bracelet around his left wrist, tanmarks on his right ring finger.

Sam poked him in the shoulder and Dean startled, woke up fast and alert.

"What?" His voice was gravelly and well-used, the sound of it skittered across Sam's skin.

"You picked that room on purpose, didn't you?" Sam asked, laugh sly under the edges of his voice. "I bet you asked specifically."

Dean harrumped, closed his eyes, and settled against Sam's shoulder instead of the window. "No way, no way at all."


Sam laid down beside Dean, heat licking at their sides, not touching. "We can't actually, you know."

Dean nodded stiffly, as if the whole thing was about to give him a rash and he'd really rather not talk about it and who's idea was this anyways? "It's a sacrament, that's the important part."

"And you don't think we're going to get utterly smote?"

"Hope not." Dean whispered. He breathed in time with the laptop's light for a while, let everything settle down in his head. Sam rolled closer, wrapped his arm across Dean's chest and breathed in sync, too tired for anything else.


Dean watched what the priest was saying, looked across the aisle at Sam and mouthed the words, lips shaped into 'till death do us part.

Sam watched the two men exchange rings; he slipped off his bracelet and tossed it to Dean, enough time to catch the ring Dean threw at him.

They left somewhere in between i now pronounce you and you may now kiss, just enough time for them to move from their pews and reach out across the aisle, hands and mouths meeting in the middle.


"Shit, you mean this is our wedding night? Fuck, you've got to be joking." Dean rolled his eyes, kept on going. "There is no way that I'm doing any roses-and-flowers-slow-dance-crap, you have got to be kidding me."

Sam frowned, nodded. "I know, I know. I didn't even say anything, Dean, why'd you bring it up?"

Jaw drop, Dean sent Sam a look that meant yeah right, whatever, glanced pointedly at the curly-letter sign on their motel door that read Honeymoon Suite, up at the mirror above the bed, heartshaped hot tub in the seriously over large, serious overpriced bathroom.

"You're the one who got the room!" Sam was more than half-irritated, more than ready to just reposition his brother across the stupid huge bed, lick at his lips and mouth hot air over the cotton of his shirt, his boxers.

"I didn't know! The girl said it was the last one." Dean pushed his way past Sam, threw his bag down at the side closest to the door and started unbuttoning his shirt, throwing clothes towards the bed on his way to the bath. "You coming or what?"


"It's a sacrament of the church, like communion or confession, and it's got power in it - don't you think we can use that?" Dean pointed to the site he was browsing.

Sam threw himself into the chair across the table from Dean. "Yeah, I know, bonded pairs, the inherent trust and stabilty, safety and-" he paused, eyes wide, "-did you just propose?"

Dean flushed, looked away. "Not like that, god no. I mean, like when we were made deacons at that church in Green River, just so we could bless holy water. Remember?"

Sam nodded slowly. "I see."

He looked at Dean for as long as he could before he finally cracked, started laughing. Dean ducked his head in embarrassment; Sam waved the waitress down for a refill of everything and punctuated each sentence with a glance towards Dean and a "...he wants to marry me!"

heee. ♥

Oooh, man, okay.
Normally, i run screaming, but this?
This is perfect. Just...perfect.
29th-Nov-2006 05:54 am (UTC)
I know! Ordinarily I'd be really hesitant, but yeah. :) I'm glad you like it!
29th-Nov-2006 02:24 am (UTC)
I am feeling especially content right now. It was beautiful, adorable, and not sickeningly sweet at all.


29th-Nov-2006 05:55 am (UTC)
I tried hard to keep it not too schmoopy, and I'm glad it worked out - I was nervous about that.

awww. ♥

I have seen many Jensen/Jared marriage fics and they always make me so happy. I never thought of Sam/Dean because, y'know, incest, but oh man! This was so perfect and my heart is melting in the best way possible =3
29th-Nov-2006 05:56 am (UTC)
I never thought I'd try weddingfic, for heaven's sake, but oh gosh. :) thank you!!
29th-Nov-2006 03:15 am (UTC)
Oh wow.
I have to tell you I love schmoop (almost as much as I love total NC-17 sex scenes--both together makes me insanely happy--!) so this made me very very happy.
I'm so glad you unflocked this so we can all read it.
I may have to print this story out and sleep with it under my pillow for a few nights for the warm, lovely glow it gave my heart tonight.
29th-Nov-2006 05:57 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm glad. :) I was a little shy about posting it outside of flock, but I'm glad you like it. :D
29th-Nov-2006 06:27 am (UTC)
Ohhhh I'm so happy now. I love it. ♥
29th-Nov-2006 05:49 pm (UTC)
awwwww. ♥♥ :)
29th-Nov-2006 01:24 pm (UTC)
Sam, he is already married to you. Cute! Thank you, as I am cranky and want to die, this makes me feel a lot better.
29th-Nov-2006 05:50 pm (UTC)
I was aiming for something that would be cheery-up-y, and I'm glad this works. ♥
29th-Nov-2006 03:27 pm (UTC)
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, this is ADORABLE!!!! and I love the idea of them becoming clergy just to bless holy water, too. hee.
29th-Nov-2006 05:52 pm (UTC)
thank you! ♥
29th-Nov-2006 09:06 pm (UTC)
Omg... This is the first Dean/Sam marriage fic I've ever seen, and at first it didn't make much sense to me with the leaping in time, but I have to say you pulled it off. Not too schmoopy, not too cutsie-wutise...

By the end it's perfect. :)
30th-Nov-2006 03:22 am (UTC)
oh, thank you. :) I'm glad it didn't come across too too sweet, and yes. thank you. :D
29th-Nov-2006 10:38 pm (UTC)
so, when I got to the part where it became clear that Sam and Dean were getting married I was like 'wtf?' because normally I'd run screaming from that kind of crack.

But dude! maybe I'm a schmoop whore but this really does work. Its so sweet and understated and them. And just all of the little details really made this and I kind of seriously love it. I'm going to bookmark it to read when next I have a bad day.

Sam and Dean's Wedding!!!1!one!
30th-Nov-2006 03:21 am (UTC)
I'd run screaming from that kind of crack too, hahah. :)

Oh, thank you kindly. :) I tried hard to not make it saccharine-sweet, and I'm glad it worked. :D
29th-Nov-2006 11:19 pm (UTC)

Like everyone else, I'd normally roll my eyes and skip merrily (marrily? *g*) on by, but it's you so I stopped to read.

Sweet and understated and with all of your typical excellence of detail. *cuddles this fic*
30th-Nov-2006 03:18 am (UTC)
hi. ♥

You know, I would more than likely skip right on by, too, and you have no idea how pleased I am that you like it. :D :D :D

aww, thank you. ♥
30th-Nov-2006 12:45 am (UTC)
"Yeah, I know, bonded pairs, the inherent trust and stabilty, safety and-" he paused, eyes wide, "-did you just propose?"

So adorable and sweet that it makes my teeth ACHE. Love it.
30th-Nov-2006 03:18 am (UTC)
Err, a good ache, I hope. ♥

30th-Nov-2006 09:10 am (UTC)
HEEEEEEEEEEEEE. this is so sweet and perfect!

you do realize this now needs mpreg to make the happy family whole, right?
30th-Nov-2006 02:04 pm (UTC)
awwww. ♥ - thank you. :)

I'm a huge sap also, and so this was definitely a self-indulgent little bit. :))

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and omg yay. :)) I don't have anything quite like this under flock, but I'll be sure to post any weddingfic I may come up with in the future. ;))

Thank you so much!
