This was really quite brilliant actually. The way you've defined both the characters, Dean with his family values and sense of purpose that hark an older age, and Sam with his individualism and ideas are that are more modern, are both so clearly felt. You'd also captured that growing-up angst of a youth perfectly, when they say what they dont really mean and emotions rule most thoughts, and they consider themselves to be in the right. It's bratty, for sure, but that's just Sam growing up.
I love this, and I'm glad you wrote it with such realism and harshness. Great job.

I like this one
You know what's worst? Those could have been his last words to Dean... I mean, Sam is a little selfish, you know? I love the kid, he's amazing, but when he went to stanford and decided to not talk to Dean he was completely selfish, because his fight was with John and not with his brother.
I love this stanford era stories It's a great subject to talk about
Kisses and take care

::sob:: Regret just spills off this page. I like how you've balanced Sam learning to define himself away from his family members, and being a little angry but still missing them. The scene at the bus station, where Sam just shoots Dean down was heartbreaking, and ties in excellently with the phone call at the end.
"...wondering why everyone in his life wanted to protect him so much." I love this comment, because it shows he can tell what's going on, and even coming from Jess he's a little resentful. (Unless I read that wrong?)
I also thought it was sweet, that he could recognize something like Dean's breathing, and how well this conveys the closeness between the two while he was growing up. It gives his detached voice even more weight.
I enjoyed reading this-thanks for posting.

This made me want to cry. I've had similar conversations with siblings. Well, not about spirits and electocution, but with the same need and the same walls and both wanting to reach out and neither knowing with direction to go. I can picture this with the boys. Nicely done.

nonnononononono you can't leave them there. Sammy would never reject dean like that...never!
no need to find a feel good one now, ...

Given what we saw in the pilot, I get the feeling Sam did behave in such a spoilt, brattish manner to Dean. I love Sam but there are times I wished Dean would tell him to get a grip and realise the world doesn't revolve around him.

SAM! WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN TO DEAN? XD

Okay my heart is still aching. I think I may go sit in a corner and cry now.
| heartfallen 9/20/06 . chapter 1
that was so heart wrenching
| JuDei 9/20/06 . chapter 1
That was completely and utterly depressing (and I mean that as a compliment).
I would love to read more on this; however, I can also see merit in letting it stand alone if you so choose.

Oh No! Great chap Poor Dean and Sam, I feel sorry for both of them, please write another chap or sequal as that's an upsetting place to leave it though we know they will talk to each other again, you can see them worrying about each other for years.
