Silent Night

So this was from a prompt at the spn_hurtcomfort Christmas h/c commentfic meme.

Title: Silent Night
Prompt: From the lovely and talented roque_clasique:Deaf!Dean. Sam steps out for some eggnog and in his absence a bunch of carolers come to the door. They're little kids and Dean doesn't have the heart to tell them he's deaf, so he just lets them sing. Original prompt and my reply is here.
Spoilers: Spoilers up to 3.08. So, y'know, nothing recent.
Word Count: 3,042
Disclaimer: Kripke made me give 'em back because he said I was breaking his toys. Meanie.
Neurotic Authorial Disclaimer: No beta, no nothin'. Probably riddled with typos, malapropisms, and unhappy syntax. Proceed at your own risk.
Extra Neurotic Authorial Disclaimer: I am not deaf, nor Deaf. I know just enough about the culture to get myself in trouble. I also know that ASL has its own grammar and syntax, but I have no idea how to convey that in writing, so please bear with my excessive use of italics, mmkay?

:::ETA:::

riama82 has made some gorgeous, gorgeous fanart! It's included at the end of the fic, along with a link to her LJ. All hail riama82!

:::FURTHER ETA:::

elsewhere_kels has made a podfic of the story! Go here for the downloads. :)

Awwww. I read it again because I love it. I love it so much. The warmth and comeraderie and understanding between the brothers is so perfect. So, anyway-- It's September, there are lots of Jewish holidays going on right about now. How about a Sukkot story? Simchas Torah? No? Not really applicable? I'd take a drabble, or an anything.

Thank you again! :)

I am woefully ignorant about Jewish holidays. I know they exist and the rough dates, but I would be incapable of doing them justice. Maybe yasminke could help you out there.

Awesome! I love how sweet Dean is here, trying to please the kids. And he probably did, too, since no one else they sang for would be likely to pay so much attention to them. They must have thought that he thought they were great. I'm glad he got outed, of course, but it's great that it wasn't in front of the kids. :D

Aww, thank you! Dean is a big ol' marshmallow, no matter how much he pretends otherwise. ;)

I've just finished listening to the podfic recording, and this story is such a joy -- tremendously real, with sweetness entirely free from sappiness. Thank you so much. This is going into my Keepers playlist.

Aw, thank you! I won't leave it abandoned too much longer, I don't think. Have to catch up on some commitments first.
