I'm sorry, but I can't read this story fully without stopping for 5 minutes laughing at the Lord Voldemort part.
*needs to get giggles in check*

Oh jeez, fix him! Fix him, fix him, fix him! Poor Sammy! This is amazing and awful at the same time. Everything is so well described I can actually see it all. Its great, but still..poor Sammy!
I had a hazy image of what I thought Sam would look like like this, but I couldn't quite place it. Then Dean started thinking about Lord Voldemort and right in the middle of being horrified, I laughed, because that was it! So to sum all of this up...Please continue! This is so great!

Creepy! Poor Sam, but good for Dean. I would like him in my corner if things ever went haywire!

Wow. You are coming up with the most creative body parts to lose... I had no idea where this was going. HIS DIMPLES? Priceless. Definitely the best one to begin on. The irises too - very cool. I am kind of creeped out by the missing mouth... but eager to read more!

AH OMG, how horrible. *shivers* You have GOT to update this, man.

This is written so good and the story is amazing yet scary at the same time! I really hope you will continue with this story! I'll keep checking in!

Yikes! Messing up Sammy's looks? That is the ULTIMATE horror. Well, actually I suppose that messing up DEAN'S looks would have been worse. Anyhow, good job. I'm looking forward to what happens next ...

I cannot say how much I am loving this. First, this is genuinely creepy. I'm not often freaked out by things I read... but this curse (which is issued in a way that is way more disturbing than the usual chanting/exploding into dust by the way) is freaking me out. It starts small but as soon as it does you just know that it is going to get really, really bad. And the ominous feeling is bang on because the progression of the curse is a hideous curve of horror. It's surprisingly visceral and also repulsive, which makes me feel guilty because it's *Sam* (and apparently I'm very shallow) but... I shuddered at the end of this chapter. I couldn't help it. The image and the sound and the *idea* of Sam in that state just hit me so hard. My heart hurt for Sam and Dean, but I also just wanted to look away. It was seriously powerful. And the anticipation is heightening everything because I know it gets worse. If skin and bone and muscle start vanishing on Sam I don't know if me or Dean will be able to take it (but I also kind of want it... does that make me a bad person?).
That's not ever all this fic has going for it! The writing is good, there's humour in the right doses and just lots of little throw away ideas I love. The unimaginativeness of witches' curses for one made me laugh (although, oy! Women can too be as imaginative as men in inflicting pain and suffering! Er, that came out wrong...). And I just generally love the brotherly banter. Cosmo, and lame comebacks ("you're... kinky") and everything.
Dean's POV is fabulous. I can hear his voice! I love the characterisation of both brothers in this. Dean is protective in all the big ways that you see in fic all the time, but you can also see how much he loves Sam in the way he notices something as small as his brothers dimples being missing. I love Sam too. He's not whiny or clingy, but he's not stoic and distant. He's an adult, and he tries to soothe Dean's fears when he can, because Sam loves Dean just like Dean loves him and this curse is tearing him apart too, but he also can't help but turn to his big brother when it's bad and look up to him and believe him when he reassures him and oh. I just love Sam and Dean so much! And I'm so scared! I have seriously never been drawn in and emotionally effected so quickly before! And now I'm in love with a WIP when I normally avoid them! But you got me with your title and now I'm stuck.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this story! Very original story and ranks high on the "creep-o-meter" (I mean that in good way!) I am really really looking forward to reading more of this story!
| sendintheclowns 2/24/08 . chapter 1
How extremely original! Although you almost made me cry when Sam's dimples were stolen. And his hair. Sigh.
I'm looking forward to seeing where you take this story with the very cool title.

wow. Fantastic story and what an original idea! Cant wait for chapter 2. Really like this. Kind regards, ST.x.

Oh, man! Poor Sammy! First the dimples, then his gorgeous hair, then his mom's eyes (loved that Dean noticed every detail missing and that he mourned over losing a piece of his mom with his brother's eyes changed) and then his mouth. Love the franticness of Dean waking up knowing something is wrong and Sam's absolute panic and seeking out Dean. Oh, this pulls at the heart strings in a way they have never been pulled before. Very original and creepy and entertaining at the same time. Can't wait for more!

This is so incredibly creepy! And I love it!
| Kaewi 2/23/08 . chapter 1
Haha, this line is awesome: "According to Cosmo, I only think about it every six minutes". So great.
Love this so far! Kind of icky, but so good. It's hard to really gross me out. At first I thought his teeth would be missing, but no! The dimples! *gasp* That's even worse ;)
I really like that Sam has been mostly calm about all this so far. I see a lot of fic where Sam just freaks right out and Dean has to calm him down, which is fine, but it usually comes across as a weakness in Sam. Sam is a really strong character, and that is portrayed well through this chapter.

OMG! that ending stole my breath. crazy crazy crazy. Please write more!
