It’s not right! It’s just not right! As the King of Hell, he could order all the Demons to stop their nonsense, but then they’d just hiss about it behind his back and still dress in their silly costumes when he wasn’t looking. As it is, though, he’s seen far too many of the stupid things. He rounds a corner and glowers darkly at the sparkling wings that almost poke him in the face. “Nice costume,” he growls.
“Oh, thank you, Your Majesty!” The young Demon turns to him with a brilliant smile that doesn’t fade even when Crowley snarls.
With but a thought, he leaves Hell behind and appears in a dirty motel room. A woman screams. Two men jump. Popcorn flies. Crowley picks a piece out of the air and pops it in his mouth. “No costumes, boys?” he comments, looking at his two favorite game pieces.
“What? Did you think we’d be dressed up as a squirrel and moose just because you call us that all the time?!”
A sly smile crosses Crowley’s face as he looks down at Dean. “Now that you mention it, that is a rather fetching idea.”
Dean’s hand moves instantly for his gun. “Don’t even think it,” he growls.
“Not tonight,” Crowley admits, waving him away. “I’m sick of bloody costumes tonight!” Without waiting to be invited or, more likely, to be refused, Crowley drops down onto the couch beside Dean and Sam. “What are you watching?” he asks, reaching for more popcorn. Whatever the film, whatever the occasion, his time is always better spent here with these two than it ever has been, or will be, in Hell.
