Love this, still loving Sam's friends the way they are always there and the way they are in awe of Dean. Loved the argument between Sam and Jess they way Sam lost his temper and the way Jess apologised. Now Sam has to find Dean and make sure he is okay - I bet he is feeling really guilty though. I absolutely adore this 'verse.

Mwaahaahahahhaha! It's up! And it's lovely! *huggles fic* Oh, I want more. :) More more more more more. *hearts to 'Beerverse*!
I like the way you ended it, very nice! Cracks about the GPS, *snickering* Can't wait to see what the next chapter turns out like, and will be salivating to beta 4 anytime. :) Except tomorrow, when I have an exam. :)
Unconsciousness beckons, but hot damn this made me happy.

Brilliant job, as usual. Sam's regroup of emotions and the realization that not everyone was as emotionally repressed as the Winchesters was a great moment in the story.
Can't wait for the nex installment,

Yes, Sammy, go find Dean!
This was a wonderful chapter. Really liked that so much of what was winding Sam up wasn't about himself (in a sense) - most of it was Dean's pain and his Dad's, not being able to share it, wanting to understand. I mean, obviously, he has his own pain about his mother's death, and that feeds into it, but just so sweet that he continues to just really want to help Dean.
I also liked the parallel with Jess wanting to understand, wanting to help. He fights against it, but in the end, lets her help in the way she can right then - just being there, not pushing. Just. Sniff.
Anyway. Very rambly. :) One of the great things about this story is that it made me go back and read the other Beer stories and start adding them to my Favorite! Looking forward to what's next.

Angsty and hurty, but oh so well done. I wanted to slap Sam's friends, though! But I guess it's not their fault, not knowing Our Boys as they really are...
Good job. As always!

Well I'm an exhausted puddle after that - maybe as exhausted as Sam and Jess! That was just incredible, everything I wish Sam would have gotten the chance to say to Jess in the show, everything I think he would have wished he could have said. Just amazing. We always tend to think how awful it must have been for Dean to remember just what he'd lost with Mary, but it must have been just as awful for Sam not to be able to remember, to be an outsider who could never feel what John and Dean were feeling. You articulated that isolation so well, and then, just as that was still raw and painful for Sam, there was Jess, and suddenly Sam wasn't alone any more... I wish he (and Dean!) could find a girl like that in the show! (Although she'd probably be boycotted by the fangirlies...!)
Amazing chapter. Have a virtual standing ovation on me!

No, he can't let it end like that. Poor Jess.
Great writing! I completely felt Sam's anger towards his friends when they wouldn't stop talking. Very realistic.
| NathMG 10/16/07 . chapter 2
This just gets better and better. Sam's wave of emotion was so intense and so him. The argument with his friends rang so true. The shock they relayed in seeing a side of him that they did not understand was perfect.
Telling Jess about their mother and walking that fine line making sure to keep the supernatural out of it made it that much more riveting. How much longer will he be able to keep this secret. I wonder. I've never been a fan of Stanford Sam stories, but I absolutely adore this AU, where Dean has to walk that fine line between Sam and John. And I've also just realized how Sam has to walk that fine line as well, between Dean and Jess. Excellent chapter! I can't wait for the next one.

Wonderful another emotionally packed and powerful chapter. I love your Jess and her relationship with Sam ( which is amazing coz i don't usually read romance stuff). I'd actually love to see Sam tell her the full story.
Loved Sam's anger and pain here - you vividly portrayed his boiling over. Can't wait to see him and Dean talk.
| Carthage 10/15/07 . chapter 2
Another great chapter. I love that Sam finally admitted something to Jess; that kind of secrecy would have been difficult to maintain, and it's nice that she knows something of the truth. Plus, I thought her insistence that he tell her was in character with how you've been writing her so far. I cannot wait for Sam to find Dean, that should be very fun to read.

You just ripped out my heart. Poor Sammy.
| SilverKitsune1 10/15/07 . chapter 2
This AU gets better with every installment. You write Jess in a way that makes us completly understand why Sam grieved for her all through season one and makes me wish that they'd figured out a way to keep her alive and cool in cannon. And Sam and Dean, sheesh. I'm starting to think you figured out a way to crawl inside their heads because they have the perfect blend of raw, tragic, hurt and strength.

I didn't notice you had posted a new 'Beer verse story. I completely missed that the first time.
Wow. This was a great chapter. Really got into Dean's feelings about November 2 and John. Poor guy.
| Caitie 10/15/07 . chapter 2
Perfect. That was another amazing chapter. I'm glad that it finally got out, that Jess can finally understand a little bit more about the darkness that hovers around Sam and his family. To be honest, I loved that it came out in a fight like that. It was so real. After all the tension and grief and the guilt and the anger, it was just more realistic for Sam to explode like that.
I definitely can't wait to see how things go with Dean, though.

There is more, right? I was hoping I had found the story when it was further along. Now that I have messed up my contacts with tears, I can't wait for the next part.
