OMG...this was an amazing story with an awesome balance of hurt, heroic Sam and possessed/damaged/heroic Dean fight back from the edge to save Sam. Nice twist with him being the one with the psychic link stuff going on, too! The story just flowed wonderfully and kept me totally engrossed from start to finish.

Just have to say that this is an awesome story. It was recommended by a friend. Don't know if you are still writing, but this is really gripping!

I love how Dean's trying to come around when he thinks Sam is in Big Brother.
Awwwww, grape gum, his favorite. LOL
Like he'd tell her anything different.
But he would always and forever be Sam's hero.
Warm fuzzies for everyone.

Then he smiled coyly, bringing the knife he'd used to slice Sam's cheek to his lips. Sam resisted the urge to shiver as he ran his tongue along the blade.
Gross, Dean tasting Sammy's blood via Genie the khnow Dean had to be ill on the inside from that. And I'm sure it would gross Sammy out too.
Come on Sammy, kick his ass. Make him get out of Dean.
This fight reminds me of what was supposed to happen if Dean had been Michael's vessel in 5.22.
as he watched his brother, with Genie inside of him, raise a knife up above his head and get ready to bring it down on Sam's chest.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Fight it, Dean. Don't let freakazoid use your body to kill Sammy.
"I need you to take care of Sammy. No matter what. Always look after your brother."
"Even when I'm sleeping?"
"Even when you're sleeping."
Yes Dean, especially when you're sleeping.
Sam closed his eyes. He didn't want to see his brother's face when he felt that knife plunge into his chest. Don't blame you a bit, Sammy. That would be a horrible last memory before dying to have.
Dean's knife, his precious knife with the eight inch silver blade, was buried hilt deep in Dean's side. That had to have cost Dean dearly, to inflict that blade upon himself. Way to go, Dean. What an awesome effort in your fight against Genie/Freak.
The room was too quiet when Dean didn't author knows how to twist the knife with the last sentence in every chapter.

I love the whole Freak's in Dean's head thing, even though it worries me greatly.
Dean's hands clenched into fists. No, he had to stop this. yes Dean, stop it now. Don't let Psych/Psycho/Freakboy do this to you and Cecily and Sam.
Genie made his voice sound just like Sam's. "And you're not going to hesitate to slit his throat and stare into his eyes so the last thing he sees is your face telling him he's weak, he's not good enough, that you don't really love him." Holy shades of S&V, Batman!
OMG, this chapter is so great! I love the tension and angst you're inflicting on me. Turn the screws a little more, make them tighter. Bring it!
Yes, it is reminiscent of the shapeshifter in some ways, only worse in so many others.
"Do you think your brother will enjoy being a pedophile?"
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! not our Dean that always looks out for the kids.
Come on Dean, fight this freak in your head.
Oh good, I see you wrote that he is.
And if souls could bleed, then they could cry. And Dean had never felt such tears.
Hot bitter tears.
I'm thinking you're almost as evil as Kripke. That's one bad mofo evil sumbytchh.
lol love the tension, keep it comin' :)

I can't believe that Sam would have any doubts about Dean. Even if he killed an actual person. I think he would understand that Dean must've had a damn good reason to gank a human instead of a spooky freak. I can see him being totally shocked and dismayed by the fact though.
There were no masks holding behind the raw emotion there and Sam knew that Dean only took down those masks, only let people in, when he needed reassurance, when he needed to be told that he did the right thing. Beautiful sentence.
Sam was going to have to make some exceptions. And he was willing to do so. For Dean. Because his brother needed it. Because they both needed beauty.
*sniff* *wipes away a small tear*
Wow, Dean put his necklace on Cecily.
Dean ran a hand over her hair
Why do we always do that to kids? The ones we want to protect? It must drive them crazy sometimes.
Your story is so good. I'm enjoying it so much.:) Thank you
all Dean wanted to do was put the handgun he'd thrown to the ground into his mouth and pull the trigger as many times as he could.
Dean knew that everyone he cared about would die. And it wouldn't be at the hands of Genie. It would be Dean with the knife in his hand. It would be Dean with the malice in his eyes. It would be Dean with the blood on his clothes, on his skin, on his soul and when it was all over, Genie would leave and Dean would be surrounded by the corpses of his loved ones and know that he was the one who killed them. And then no gun in the world would be able to take away his pain.
"Can Sammy come out and play?"
Oh Hell no, you are not doing this to me. We are SO NOT playing this game.
| Heartless BytchhakaHelenBach1 chapter 6 . 9/22/2010
Go Sammy! Gank that freak!
I get too caught up in these stories. But it's so much fun.
Uh oh, I wonder how Sammy's going to like hearing about Dean ganking that psychic years earlier. Now I understand that foreshadowing jibe you had in a previous chapter.
| Heartless BytchhakaHelenBach1 chapter 5 . 9/22/2010
It was always the hardest part to come home and find their stuff laying around, to find everything that was a reminder that they weren't coming back.
I can tell you some stories about how rough that is.
Thanks for this chapter. The tension is rising and i'm so into this story.

"Dude, you better not be contagious." Sam tilted his head. He wasn't following. "Because if this means I'm getting the shining, we are so sleeping in separate rooms."
"Are you afraid of what happened to your brother?" Cecily just stared down at the table, her lips quivering. All right, he was getting somewhere. "I'm afraid of things happening to my brother too." Dean said after a moment. "I'm afraid of losing him." She still didn't say anything. "But you know, I just promise myself that I won't let anything happen to him. But if anything ever did, I'd want someone to come and save me too." i If someone still cared. If someone would actually come when his sons needed him. /i "I'd do anything to make sure that whatever hurt my brother pays for it. Even if it meant it would be scary."
I love how good Dean is with Kids. But then he's been doing it all of his life hasn't he.:( This was a beautiful little paragraph.
Ok, that last sentence of this chapter has me totally creeped out.
