“What's your road, man? Holyboy road, madman road, rainbow road, guppy road, any road. It's an anywhere road for anybody anyhow.” “On the Road” – Jack Kerouac
This is a community for the Anywhere Road Verse by zeitheist and kat_lair. It is an alternative fanfic universe documenting the adventures of Andrew “Andy” Gallagher and Ash (surname unknown) from the TV-show Supernatural.
The story starts with the premise that after the events of episode 2x05 “Simon Says” Andy was no longer welcome in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Things didn’t quite get to the “torch and pitchfork” stage but for all intents and purposes he was nevertheless driven out by the good townsfolk. With no one else to turn to, he called the Winchesters for help. After a moment’s consideration (Sam considered taking Andy with them, Dean considered selling him to a circus) they dropped Andy, a bagful of clothes, five crates of books, and his psychedelic van at the Roadhouse doorstep and ran before Ellen managed to draw enough breath to shout.
Andy and Ash have a lot in common (unique dress code, illegal drugs, above average intelligence, illegal drugs, specialist skills, illeg– you get the picture), and so it makes perfect sense that even though in canon the two have never met, if they did, they would get along like house on fire (um, bad metaphor). And so in the Anywhere Road Verse they do. One thing leads to another, and soon the boys hit the road on Andy’s magical mystery van, Ash’s mobile computer system riding on the back.
Oh, and in case you didn’t work it out yet, when we say Andy and Ash get along, we mean they really get along. Yes. Like that. Anywhere Road is most definitely Andy/Ash slash, so if that’s not your cup of tea, we suggest you look elsewhere.
Hunters are not born, they are made. If the Winchesters can do it, why not Andy and Ash? After all, it's an anywhere road for anybody anyhow. Ash has superior techno-fu, Andy those freaky mind-control abilities, and together they are, if not invincible, then at least highly skilled to fool everyone into believing so.
Their style of hunting may be unusual, their car more colorful than you’re used to, their eyes occasionally glazed, and the road they’re on sure has a lot of detours and pit stops.
But, most importantly, their story is worth telling.
