Author's Notes: Winchester brotherly banter. Written for the win_non_con Movie Prompts Challenge. My prompt was "Killer Klowns from Outer Space."
It's a competition and it's one that Sam doesn't appreciate. Because Dean knows every single movie that has terrifying clowns in it and Sam can only keep on bringing up plane movies with famous Hollywood stars fighting terrorists. And really, they're not all that scary, although Gary Oldman was pretty psycho in that one movie.
After Sam mentions the Twilight Zone movie, Dean just shakes his head, tips his beer back and says, way too casually, "Killer Klowns from Outer Space."
A pause and then Sam manages, "You jerk."
Dean's smile is like the grin of Satan. Or some other really evil person who had promised to never bring up that movie.
"C'mon, Sammy, you were only ten when we watched that. It's not still haunting your dreams? Making you check that no one's tryin' to shove their hand up your back?"
Sam flinches and tries, desperately, not to turn around, expecting to see one of those horrible clowns grinning at him. "They shoved their arms up people's backs and treated them like puppets, Dean. You were freaked out, too. You've never eaten circus peanuts since."
"That's because," Dean says, issuing his Elder Brother voice even though there's a twitch in his jaw giving away that he's now remembering that part, "circus peanuts are gross. I'm not the one that thinks they're people shrunk down to a more edible size, Sammy."
Sam just glowers at Dean. He now has the image of those clowns in his head, their twisted, demented faces stretched too wide and really, clowns are far more terrifying than planes. Which is why they should never be mentioned and they should not be allowed to hang around circuses, waiting for their chance at a murder spree.
So he tries for something new. "Snakes on a Plane."
Dean purses his lips for just a moment, a light flickering in his eyes, "Clowns on a Plane."
"Dean, that's not a real movie!"
"Well, don't get pissy there, Wilhemina, I'm sure Hollywood can turn out a crappy movie like that. I'd give it a month."
"You're going to hell, you know."
"Got my condo rented out and I'll see you there. I'll make sure to invite the clowns over for a real party."
