This really is a truely great story and I'm not surprised to read that it won awards. This is the second time I've read it and I'm finally remembering to put you on permanent author alert and leave a comment.
This is such a great picture of how Dean and Sam might have lost contact for 2 years after Dean went against JOhn's disowning of Sammy when he first left for Stanford.

Another fine myth from PADavis. Good use of setting and explanation of how and why a skunk ape would be dangerous, plus her well-done hurt/comfort. The descriptions of the Uktena and Dean's claustrophobia in the cave are good spots.

Just found this via a rec the other day, and it is awesome!
I hurt so bad for Dean...I felt you did a great job with all the family dynamics, Dean aware of his Dad's nature, trying to behave so his dad would want to have Dean with him...John being tough and harsh, but there was still an element that indicated he loved his sons.
And Sam was amazingly written, the awareness of the distance between him and Dean now, his realization that he hurt Dean while at Stanford and yet also acknowledging that he didn't think he could have handled it differently...Such realistic ambivalence among all of them.
And the doctor, Jill, was a fabulous character.
I really enjoyed this story!

Sorry it took me so long to get back to review this chapter. Life's been crazy.
This made me laugh: "Dean was positive that not even Florida could outmojo Jill." I liked Jill, a lot, and for someone who normally avoids OFCs like the plague, that's saying a lot.
This made me sad: "But I was calling you maybe two or three times a month for two years – and no matter when I called, you never picked up, not once, until I called from the hospital phone and you didn’t recognize the number...But he’d been relieved that Dean hadn’t called back, God forgive him, relieved." And it made me sad that Sam thought John was probably right, about making a clean break. I'm glad he felt bad, but I wanted more, somehow. And I was still mad at John, especially when we find out he did punish Dean by making him dig the Panama Canal. I'd like to have seen Sam holler at John for leaving Dean in the hospital, for erasing his messages. I want some resolution for that. I love John, but I want his butt kicked for how he acted in this story.
I'm glad you ended this on a brotherly note, the boys bickering and bantering. That's always a pleasure to read.
All in all, a very well-done story. Suspenseful, emotionally compelling, lots of great action and some nice OCs. I liked the part where Sam and Dean spent time with Jill and her family, it's nice for them to have allies they don't have to lie to about what they do. Nice job on this!

(They eventually stayed through Saturday morning, not so much because Dean couldn’t walk for five minutes on Friday, he did, just not as well as the doctor wanted him to. ... Jill had pulled some strings and had a cot placed in the room for him.)
Seriously. That girl is an angel!
(Dean and Adam retired to the family room for a private ‘man to man’ discussion, where Sam found them a few hours later, Dean snoring on a recliner, and Adam on the floor in front of the TV. He wasn’t sure who had fallen asleep first.)
I'm sure it's an adorable sight.
(An hour after breakfast, Dean was practically pulling Sam to the car he was so anxious to leave.)
Hahaha! I can just imagine.
(I’m glad I made that call now – if you hadn’t have been so pissed off, I probably would have died right there in my car. You saved my life that night in Canaveral, and I’ll never forget that.”)
Naah. I don't believe in that man save man stuff. It's the god all mighty that do the saving. Even if Sam didn't call, if Dean's destined to survive, he will be saved by other means, I'm sure.
(But he’d been relieved that Dean hadn’t called back, God forgive him, relieved.)
Yeah. Back to hating Sam again.
(“Stronger than me? You think you’re stronger than me? And that a little concussion will slow me down? Do you really want to find out if I can’t force you out of this car, bitch?” He opened the door and stepped out.)
Don't worry, Sam he's just bluffing. I'm sure you are stronger than him too. After all he's surely still in recovery process. Hehe.

First, just one additional review for Ch.15:
(“All I can figure is that it was trying to track Caleb and me. But Dean, you should have killed it when you had the chance. I’ll have to hunt it down myself now.”)
(“Did you miss it – or just piss it off?”
Dad scowled and lowered his voice. “Enough of the attitude. We didn’t know there was more than one of them, Dean. We didn’t know there were any at all until an ecology class student was killed out in the swamp. Maybe this was its mate, I don’t know.”)
What a nerve. He criticized Dean but threw some lame excuses when asked a simple question? Did he even realize it?
NOW to Ch.16:
(Dean raised his eyebrows. “Man, I'm good. Can’t remember them, but I can still line them up. Um”, he made a circling gesture with his hands. “Why do I remember some kind of no-fly zone?”
“Because I was an ass. )
Hehehe. I'm glad Sam's better now.
("Later or never on that part." He shook his head, slowly. “Physics, kites, matches … did you take on Kit?”
“Winchester honor, man, had to be done. I showed no mercy.”
“And I bet he thought the wind treated you better and wants a rematch.”
“With you naturally. I never knew he was such a prick.”)
Hah. Like you more and more, Sam.
(“As long as I live long enough for it to take effect.” His eyes were streaming. He cursed between sneezes, “Crap. Damn. Fuck.”
Jill burst out laughing. “I’ll make sure you live, Dean. I don’t want to have to use an epi-pen on you again.”)
I like this Jill. She and Dean seems really comfortable with each other, like they've been friend for years.
SPECIAL Note to Author: I finished reading, I just forgot commenting I guess. So I re-read and gave my comment.

I really enjoyed your story. I felt really bad for Dean cause everything shitty seemed to happen to him, but I'm glad that he and Sam were able to sort it all out.
| HAMUCHA 11/22/09 . chapter 15
Oh, now I know how what a bast* you think John is. And in this fic, I can't agree more.
| HAMUCHA 11/22/09 . chapter 13
(“OK, Dean, I’m going to let you lie down in the truck. You and I have a date at the hospital.”
“No, Dad, be fine. Just need to sleep.”
Dad picked him up, one arm under his knees, the other behind his shoulders. He winced but it felt so good to finally just let go. “You’re really strong, Dad.”)
At last, hospital. I was surprised he's not bleeding to death already.
