Very enjoyable casefic! Liked the twist that Phil saved Sam, not Dean...like the underlying brother connection, you wrote it nicely for being in season one.

Absolutely loved this story. Poor Phil, though. Sammy got rescued by a groundhog. Now I've seen it all. :D Great story. Loved, loved, loved it. They boys were so in character and I loved Kris.

Terri - fic!
Funny, scary, and poignant. Loved it!

I'm a sucker for Hurt!Dean...so obviously I love this story! And I have to say I "aw"-ed out loud when Phil rested his head on Dean while Dean was driving. Actually, Phil made me "aw" a lot this chapter. Poor thing.
Loved it! Can't wait to read more of your work!

Another fabulous story. Who could guess that poor ol' Punxsutawney Phil could turn out to be a creature connected to evil? Glad you turned Phil into the hero, the one who could break the curse, and did so willingly.
You have woven an interesting tale here. Loved the history behind the original settlers and the beginning of the curse. You are quite the masterful storyteller. I really liked Kris - she was a strong, intelligent girl - and yes, reminded me a bit of Dean, with her curt "take no prisoners" style. Speaking of whom, hard to believe that what hurt Dean in this story was not some evil creature, but a group of angry football players. And then Dean hitting his "baby" with the truck - priceless. He must be losing his touch ;). Seriously, my heart went out to him trying so hard to help his brother, but his injuries prevented him from doing that. And now apparently, he has an affection for rodents as well as for kids :).
I love how you write the boys' easy banter - great one shots back and forth. But you don't forget the angst - you know we couldn't live without that! But I like your style of angst - it's not overdone or too dramatic. Lots of that out there.
Thank you for sharing this gem with us. I'm off to read more of your work. Have a Happy New Year filled with happiness and even more creative ideas ;). Until next time...

Gratuitous Dean Bashing? Check
Winchester Banter? Check
Off-beat unpronouncable and unspelled small town? Ya huh!
Amusement? Most definitely.
Delight? Oh yeah, baby.
Total very cool story, with a weird-ass rodent. _

Ok so the rest - not quite so funny, but still great. I loved the interaction between poor lil'Dean and Phil in the ride out in the snow. You really know how to write Dean angst - I love it!
| HAP chapter 2 . 4/28/2007
Man, why haven't I read this one before! Dean kills me in this - hilarious. And irritating. But mostly hilarious.
The next year, at a different school in a different state – Texas, of course – it was obvious that Dean just wasn’t big enough for the first string, and if it wasn’t first string for Dean, it was nothing. The baseball mitt had come out again.
-I loved that line - I can just imagine that Dean wouldn't do anything other than first string...
*Off to read more chapters*

How did I miss this one! Those neanderthals hurt Dean! gotta love 'em ;-)
THis was an interesting read. Always wondered why they kept that groundhog
| Fireman Phil chapter 7 . 2/14/2007
This was a thoroughly entertaining story! I elected to dispense with the chapter by chapter
reviews. My fingers were too, cold to type. As it happens, I read it on one of the more
miserable winter days in years here in western Pennsylvania. Your description of the frigid
conditions at Gobbler's Knob matched perfectly what has been happening right outside our
house: yet another cold air mass from our Canadian "friends."
You were pretty rough on Dean. I know...only because you know he can take it. You
were REALLY rough on Phil. (I pay special attention to things that happen to characters
who share my name.) Oh well, it was a heroic climax ...sort of like a Viking funeral in a way! You were a little rough on Punxsutawney, too. GRIN
I enjoyed your notes immensely. You are, unquestionably, a First Class smart-ass. That's a compliment.
However, you did hurt my feelings with the suggestion that Kris' future at University of Toronto would surpass the experience of going to Penn State. Come on. Toronto is...well, Toronto (ugh), but Penn State is "Happy Valley."
Thanks again for an enjoyable read.
Now, to complete your metaphor - it's 9:59, time to change the channel.

I'm with Dean. Excellent fic. You really made me care about all the OCs, especially Phil.
| Rebel Goddess chapter 6 . 1/14/2007
Part of me was cheering the heroic hot water bottle hog on and the other part was like "But you can't kill the groundhog!" Excellent chapter. Ouch, poor Dean!
| Rebel Goddess chapter 4 . 1/14/2007
I can just imagine a younger Dean begging for a dog and never getting one because, let's face it, there's no way their Dad would ever agree to it. Poor Dean. Great chapters.
| Rebel Goddess chapter 2 . 1/12/2007
So many things about this are so perfect, horrifying and so very funny. Superb chapter. I especially like the escapee Phyllis.
