"Not this again," Crowley mutters grumpily. He glowers over at Dean. "What are you grinning about, Pollyanna? These apocalypses are so screwed up it's going to take my Hell and your Angel's Heaven working together to make sure anybody survives!"
Dean shrugs. "It could be worse."
"Dean . . . "
Dean's smile actually widens. "I'm just saying, it could be worse."
"Every soul, both living and dead, is at stake this time, Dean. Thousands have already died."
"It could still be worse."
"Dean," Sam cries, "just because you get to use the grenade launcher does not make this situation any less horrible!"
Dean caresses his favorite weapon. "Oh, yeah, Sammy, it does. It really does." The other three groan.
"Ignore them, baby. They're just jealous." The Impala honks. Dean looks up and shrugs one shoulder, then hugs the launcher closer. "She's jealous too."
"Here it comes."
"I'd ask if he's ready, but it looks like he already needs to get a room. What is it with him and inanimate objects?"
"Sh!" Dean orders as the Impala's headlights flash. "You'll hurt their feelings!"
Dean hefts the launcher high, braces himself, and pulls its trigger at last. "Oh, yeah," he croons afterward. "That was good!"
