I'd say it was still entertaining! What a doozy! A lot has been done about that time, but this is the first one of it's type I've read. I loved it! The haunting they had to deal with, the things Dean said and showed to indicate his true feelings without realizing it...all awesome stuff.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

Amazing, as usual! I didn't want it to end. I got so giddy when I saw that gaelicspirit had a new story waiting for me!
Thank-you for making my saturday much more interesting than it would've been.

Really enjoyed it. Dean and kids really do seem to go together so well!
| smokeyhorse 11/28/08 . chapter 1
This was GREAT! I really, really enjoyed it. And you beat up Dean nicely. *grin* This could've come right from the writers' room, it was so in character and believable! I love your stuff, dude. :)

Oh, never have I been soo happy to see a fic posted by you! *Does the Snoopy dance* Ugh! I needed this. Oh and by the way. Thank you so much for beta-ing my short little drabble. ;)
The angst in this fic. Oh, the angst... ;) Let's begin. :D
Okay first off, I love both boys equally but God help me, Sam annoyed me a bit in the beginning. There I said it! I know he loves and cares about Dean but I guess the reason that he annoyed me is that I'm sort of like Dean when it comes to dealing with stuff especially with the loss of a parent. I had a small fight similar to the beginning of this fic with my sister so I can semi relate to Dean's feelings and mood in this fic. Although Dean's burden is more about "The Secret" that John told him and... yeah. Moving on...
The song ended, and the first chords of CCR's “Bad Moon Rising” followed.
-Oh. That's not good...
Like something from a nightmarish memory, the SUV approaching from the side road toward Highway 56 slammed into the front right quarter panel of the old truck, shoving the side mirror into the interior of the cab, propelling the truck sideways across the road and tipping it onto the driver's side into a ditch.
-Oh, I knew it. Like once wasn't enough? :P
"On three, then, okay? One, two—" Sam pulled once, hard. Dean's shoulder popped smoothly back into place.
The scream of pain that erupted from Dean through the cloth gag echoed between the vehicles and caused the baby to start crying again. Wick released his grip, and Dean slumped to the side, sweating and trembling, air sounding like it was skipping across his lungs, not filling them.
-*Cringes* Holy Hell, woman! You know they showed Sam popping Dean's shoulder into place in episode 9 but its no where near painful looking as the ones in your fic. :P
Kate is so adorable. :D Got a question, is it hard to write in baby mood? Like how do you know what a toddler says or a 4 year old, 6 yr old, etc. :P
Sam found it harder to focus on Wick; he could hear his brother softly asking the baby, "What's that one? Yep, and that one?" while she pointed to different pictures in the book, Kate's tiny voice answering.
-*flails around* Oh my gosh, that is so cute! All the parts where Dean and Sam interact with Kate are too precious for words... and kinda sexy. LOL. :P And of course Dean would be ease with a kid. He raised Sam, he would make a great dad. And its weird that they sense that. I held a baby , it started to squirm and cry. Gave it to my sister or my mom, they were quiet! lol. And yeah those Baby Gates are a pain in the ass to put back in.
The little girl was red-faced, tears creating trails down her chubby cheeks and snot collecting at the base of her nose. She was not happy. Wick held her against him, pacing and bouncing as he'd obviously seen his sister do in the past.
-Hahaha! Oh yeah, I recognized those cries. My niece and nephew cried like that when I was growing up. My mom or my sister knew what to do to make them stop. :D They didn't try the water thing, tho I'm gonna save that the next time I come across a toddler crying. :P
"I'll be damned."
"Damn," Kate repeated, staring at the water.
"Shit," Wick whispered. "I gotta watch that."
-LMAO! They're like little sponges, dude!
"So it wasn't your kid! So the hell what?"
Dean stood, backing away from the spirit, thinking desperately.
"You think you deserve a kid? You think you deserve to be a father? You think you can just control us because of who you are? Never mind what we want, what we think, what we might be fighting for!"
The spirit stuttered, stumbling. Dean held his bandaged left arm stiffly at his side, the remaining bottle of rock salt gripped in his right hand. He had to time this just right.
"You can't wait until the end to care, man, you have to mean it all the time—you have to let them know all the time."
-... He isn't talking about the spirit anymore isn't he? Yep. I totally love this part. Reminds me of the small rant he did in Dream A Little Dream of Me. :D
Kate frowned, her lower lip trembling. Sam felt a lump gather at the base of his throat in reaction to the tears swimming in her eyes. Kate reached out toward Dean, who lifted his right hand, letting her curl her fingers around his.
"Mama?" Kate asked, her voice small.
Dean pressed his lips together, shaking his head. "Sorry, baby," he whispered. "Mama's gone."
Kate sniffed, and Sam tucked her small head under his chin, completely enveloping her with his long arm. They sat in a pile, Dean slumped against the wall, Sam on his knees next to him with their legs touching, Kate in Sam's lap, her little fingers gripping Dean's hand.
-Oh my... that. That broke my heart. Seriously, I was near tears. They all know what it feels like it, huh? :(
Oh this was a great fic! As always your descriptions in this were amazing. Made it so clear in my head and I'm glad to hear that you'll have the next fic posted soon. I eagerly await for it. ;)
p.s. You should write a book. :D

As always you have written a fantastic story. I can hear Sam and Dean speaking your words so clearly because of the skilled way you pick up the characters and run with them. Keep writing. Please. Wendy

I just loved this. You have Dean's taciturn "not talking about it" coping-mechanism perfectly.
And of course Dean would be great with kids, and I laughed out loud at the line "The fact it had been done with cunning and not simply luck was just beginning to dawn on Sam."
I really felt for Sam who was so desperate to talk to Dean and was just making it worse, and I was really pleased when he finally realised that the best way to show he cared was to go and get the spare part for the Impala. Love all your stuff and this is no exception. Thank you!

That was great! I love going back to different times in the series so this trip to season 2 was awesome. Your mixture of emotion and brotherly angst vs the action of a ghost salt & burn story was great. Thanks it was greatly entertaining.
| Wilkwo 11/28/08 . chapter 1
Heya again :)
I loved the Dean with Kate scenes - Dean really is a natural with kids on the show, and it was awesome to see that so well captured in this fic :D Beautiful.
And this made me all teary!
"Dean didn't release it. Sam didn't pull it toward him. They simply stood there a moment, each holding the opposite end of the wrench, eyes on each other's hands."
Simple, incredibly poignant. Again, must comment on the lovely lightweight quality of your writing. Not mired down in excessive prose, it's very rich yet very clear, swiftly moving and full of vivid imagery.
Thanks for posting the story :D

Man. It's 2am. Forgot to read this the other night, 'cause it was late, I was tired, and I'm sick.
I'm better, not as congested but can't talk much, and I was bored... and your fic was so inviting... lol
Twas good. I was very happy that there was Hurt!Dean in there. My fav. _
How was your Turkey Day? Mine was good. Worked a bit. Still have people at my house at 2am... singing, eating, drinking... oh vey.
Talked to that cutie from the convention, Dakota, for a good three hours... that kid is adorable.
I'm so flipping tired... I'm sorry for this lame "review". I'm just so tired...
The baby was adorable... I think Dean is great with kids... _
Until next time!

Still very very entertaining! Loved it - Dean and little ones - you can't go wrong.
| reading 11/27/08 . chapter 1
Definitely still entertaining. Marvelously so. I loved Wick and Kate. Great ghost story, too. And, of course, Dean with a baby? Always a win!
| amyblair 11/27/08 . chapter 1
I've already reviewed this via email from prior - if I remember correctly (and I do), I made you cry. That's not monumental, as we both know as you cry during episodes of Dora the Explorer.
I skimmed through this again. It is in my top three of Gaelic's Masterpieces. I love Wick - we've hit that one as well - and the "Don go 'way." And the last portion. It says so much in those last few paragraphs. "Are we going to be okay?" Mabye not, I'm scared we're not, but... "Evenutally."

Lovely story, jsut what I need to help me through the hiatus.
I like how the hunt find them unexpectedly. It's a change from the usual. And I like how you used the OCs'story to echo what has just happened to the boys, without being too obvious.
Wick and his niece Kate were very endearing characters. A good OC is precious in fanfic.
Thank you for the story!
