What's a personal bubble? - BOYS

Here's a question

Why does everyone want Sam and Dean to stop hunting? Seriously, I think... like, the last five Wincest fics I read (because the only Gen I really read is pre-series) have Sam and Dean settling down and quitting hunting.

What is the appeal of that? Am I the only one in fandom who really likes the idea of them moving around constantly and saving people's lives? Sometimes it really does feel like that.

Not everyone needs a stable house and/or 9-5 job to be happy. Otherwise we'd have no flight attendants or cops or FBI agents or anything like that.

I really don't think Dean would be able to do it. Since he was four he's spent his entire life moving around constantly and he's been happy with that. I've moved around like that (but with varying times, a few months, a few days, a few weeks, and once or twice staying for almost/around a year) and I gotta say: I get physically sick when I'm stuck in one place for too long, I get nervous and twitchy. Dean would be fucking miserable in a solitary location. Yeah, he loves Sam but he would hate it there.

And Sam? He's been moving since he was born. Yeah he craves stability and safety but that doesn't mean he can handle it. I crave stability and safety too and as I already mentioned I get restless when I'm in one place for too long. I totally see Sam taking off every few weeks while at Stanford. Just grabbing his bag after class on Friday and going in a different direction each time, coming back just in time for class on Monday and probably in a lot better mood than he was in when he left.

Huh. Hadn't actually planned on writing anything more than that first line up there. I guess my next rant will have to be on permanent!genderswap fic and why I hate it so much (and no, it's not because of the het).

I totally just sat with this in Semagic for like, an extra minute because I didn't want the Current Music to admit what I was just listening to. XD
