Wow, I was totally freaked out by the fact that Dean's injuries stayed with him when the day reset. Wasn't expecting that. Or that they would try to leave town and just be on an endless road-that was creepy.
I liked that Dean never doubted what had happened, even when Sam didn't believe him at first. And I had a good chuckle over this: "“If it makes you feel any better, I don’t think you’re crazy any more.” “Thanks, man. That means a whole lot,” Dean sighed. “It gets me,” he put a hand over his heart, “right here.”
Loved the funny lines, even in the midst of suspense: "Sam, the psychic ghost magnet." "Great, the Boy Wonder was possessed again. And armed."
TOTALLY didn't see it coming that Sam would get posessed and KILL DEAN. Great twist, to have them step into different characters in the repeating tragedy, each time they go there, and experience things from a different vantage point. Made it much more difficult to figure out what was going on. Originally, I thought the ghost was interacting with them. It was really interesting to find out that they were just stepping into different places in one unchanging scene. Great idea!

Okay, I'm back with more praise. ;)
Loved the banter, especially this: “Dude, it was trying to gnaw me in half and that’s not enough to bring out the psychic smackdown?”
“I shot it,” Sam answered, frowning. “Since when is that not good enough for you?”
And of course: "Less thinking, more smiting.” Totally captured them! LOL
Oh, and I had to laugh at this:
"They were both exhausted and Dean was indulging in his favorite pastime to let off some steam, Sam baiting. Sam was very kindly and patiently allowing it. It was a very useful trait in a younger brother."
And this: "So they’d burnt down a small, useless shed in the process. They’d at least had the decency to pretend like they were trying to put it out. But she’d still called the cops. That was gratitude for you… Sometimes helping people just didn’t have the perks he wished it did." LOL
I liked that it was Dean who felt right away that something was a little off...though I admit, you had me going with that zombie breath thing, I totally thought it was going to have something to do with that.
Love that Dean calls all midle-aged waitresses Flo. LOL
Oh, and an aw moment: "Whenever he had to break down and go to a doctor, Sam started looking at him like Superman had just fallen out of the sky and plunked himself at his feet." So sweet. He's Sam's hero.
And I laughed out loud at this: "Dean knew it was his own fault for ever teaching his brother to drive. It had made the boy uppity." I could totally picture Dean thinking this. LOL
So much more I could say, but this is getting super long. Loved the Lone Ranger discussion, Oklahoma, Dean channeling his dad in the car, and then the totally scary action. I was so thankful for your note at the bottom; I'd completely forgotten this was a "Groundhog Day" fiction, and was really freaked out that they were dead. I wasn't seeing a way around the three bullet holes in the chest. Thanks for the reassurance. Great part!
And yes, once again I'm only commenting after I've finished the whole story. I was going to do it after I read each part, so you'd have a truer first response, but then the boys died, and I couldn't stop reading long enough to post a review. You have only yourself to blame. ;)

You so totally channelled 'Mystery Spot!' and wrote this how long before? (Yes, i am only reading this now).
Great fic - with a pretty nifty plot twist! Poor Dean.
| Lauren chapter 7 . 1/1/2008
Awesome story. It definitely felt like a real episode, or even like an Are You Afraid of the Dark episode, and those were scary.
Loved this part:
"“Do you know why?” Sam followed the man’s line of sight and his heart nearly stopped.
“Because I don’t like people in my business,” the waitress said, leaning in the window beside Harold and bodily yanking him out of the car. In only a few seconds the woman dragged the farmer, who was twice her size, into the corn and they were gone."
It actually made me jump a little, which while that happens when I'm watching something scary, it almost never happens when I'm reading.

Oh I loved it... Very fun, and the whole action/adventure speed on the thing too... Very much like an actual episode because it was mushy without going overboard, there were in-character scenes, Dean's reactions made sense, and the pace was always high... great work, great...
Happy new year bthw! )
| frenchfredo chapter 7 . 12/30/2007
another very good one, thanks for the read, i really enjoyed.
| NathMG chapter 7 . 9/17/2007
Great story. Loved how the loop replayed itself with increasingly hurt Dean... Sigh, why do we love to hurt him so.
Because it leads to a vulnerable, emotional Dean, chick-flick moments and wonderful angst.
Sam leaving for college and leaving Dean has never been dealt with to my satisfaction on the show. You've put a lot of emphasis on that in this story, and I'm hoping that you continue with that thread in your other stories. It's such an integral part of his character. Well, I'm off to read your next story. I'm sure I'll love it!

Okay, at this point I don't read a lot of Supernatural fanfics. But I caught sight of this from the challenges over at NWP. I loved the idea, and just had to read. It was so great!
And the thing that got me, I mean really got me, was when the waitress showed up and yanked the poor guy out of the Impala. I mean seriously, I had an eyes go wide, shiver up my back, have to look behind me to make sure nothing is creeping up on me moment! I haven't had one of those since the first time I watched the Asylum episode. Dude, you rock!

Oh, I do love Dean-whumping! Nice job with this fic! It's so great to find someone with actual writing talent on ;-)

No chance of boring us, great story.
| kwater chapter 3 . 7/12/2007
Loved the Hillbilly reference.. And never fear the talk, it's as much fun to read as the action...gonna go see what's up with that waitress...
| kwater chapter 1 . 7/12/2007
Nice start, always hate to see Dean already battered at the beginning of hunt.. Poor guy.
| Marvin is my Muse chapter 7 . 7/8/2007
Your Dean is so well written, especially when Sam is trying to get him to open up and talk about his emotions. You write the boy's voices so well! Sam's frustration and earnestness and Dean's complete not-wanting-to-talk-about-it-ness.
Another great story!

Great story :)
