New Orleans, Sunday Afternoon
There was a small part of Sam that had felt guilty as he'd headed out of town today. There were violent creatures in Fandom, and he was just leaving them behind for everyone else to deal with. But it was Dean's birthday, and considering the state he'd put himself into yesterday trying to fight, he probably wouldn't have been out helping to get rid of the gremlins anyway.

Thanks to Alec, Sam knew where Dean had been planning on spending his birthday, and he hoped that Alec hadn't told Dean he was asking so this would still be a surprise. He made his way through the motel where they were staying, and when he found the right room, he listened to make sure he couldn't hear any sex noises, and then knocked on the door and hoped Dean was there. He didn't want to have to break into the room to wait for him, or search all over town.

"What did you forget your key or some-" Dean was saying as he opened the door. He stopped short, eyes widening when he saw his brother instead of Alec standing there. "Sammy."

"Hey Dean," Sam said, smiling. "Surprise!"

"What are you doing here?" Dean asked, reaching out and pulling Sam inside. "Is everything okay?"

"Everything's fine," Sam said quickly. It was almost true, at least. "You didn't really think I'd let your birthday go by without seeing you, did you?"

"Well," Dean began, because truthfully he had. Sam had his own concerns at school that he figured would be taking up all of his attention.

"Dumbass," Sam said affectionately. "Now you know better. It's not like I can't use a good reason to get out of town every once in a while."

"Well, that's been what I've been telling you for years," Dean agreed, then narrowed his eyes at Sam. "I've just had problems making you agree."

"Yeah, but you were always in town with me," Sam said. "And a lot of stuff's happened to change things lately. It's not like I'm moving into the Impala or anything, but I wanted to see you. I didn't think a phone call would cut it on a birthday."

"A phone call would've been fine," Dean protested, but gave him a slow, wide smile. "Still, it's good to see you."

"A phone call also wouldn't have gotten me away from the gremlins all over town," Sam said, feeling one more slight twinge of guilt at not being around.

"Something's got them stirred up?" Dean asked curiously. "You want something to drink?"

"Sure," Sam said, going in and sitting down. "It's different gremlins, actually. I don't know where these ones came from but everyone's been taking them back out."

Dean got out a couple of beers and handed one to Sam. "There's different species of gremlins? What does getting bit by this kind cause?"

"Just annoying scratches, thankfully," Sam said, pulling down the collar of his shirt so Dean could see where he'd gotten swiped. "Which is good because the last thing we need is for everyone to be insane on the same day. Or, you know, that kind of insane."

"Not that that hasn't happened before," Dean said ruefully. He took a closer look at the scratches. "You okay?"

"I'm fine, don't worry," Sam said, smiling again. "Which I know is like telling you not to breathe but seriously, it's okay."

"Suppose it must be, since you felt you could leave town," he said, taking what Sam said at face value. Hey it was his birthday, he could afford to take a day off of worrying. "Hey, how'd you track me down anyway? Do I need to check the impala for a tracking defense?"

"Your...whatever Alec is ratted you out," Sam said. "He told me where you guys were going to be so I could get the arrangements ready. Now I'm tempted to put a tracking device on the impala though, that's not a bad idea."

"Hands off my baby," Dean shot back. "Though, if you want, you can try and put a tracking device on Alec."

"Has he been getting away from you again?" Sam asked.

"Nah, not really. I think he's liking the whole hunting thing as much as I am," Dean said, sitting down on the bed. "I did wonder a little at his insisting on going out for supplies today -- my birthday and all -- but obviously it was because he knew you were coming and wanted to give us some time."

"He might be getting things for you too," Sam said, although he tried very hard not to think of what supplies they might need.

"He already did that," Dean said, grin turning into more of a leer.

"Ugh, I'm glad I got here when I did," Sam said, making a face at Dean. "This chair is safe, isn't it?"

Dean coughed. "Define what you mean by safe."
