Dean pushed through the blazing light and waited for his eyes to adjust. And waited.
"Not gonna work, you know," the tallest musician muttered as he adjusted his guitar. "Fucking Sands never goes away."
"Fuck off, birdbutt," a skinny pale man snapped. He was flopped down on another musician, who apparently was the Hispanic version of the Terminator, to judge by the size of the guns he was putting down.

"You say that every…" Alec pushed ineffectually at James. "Every…damn it, Bond. I'm trying to make a po-never mind."
