I have enjoyed every moment of this, and I am so glad that you are continuing this 'verse! :D
Oh, I hope you are going to do something with the crash from DT with Dean in a coma... *large, hopeful puppy-dog eyes* I would so love to see how Sam would react then, and how Jess would as well. I'm curious how Jill would respond too, since I think she likes Dean more than she is willing to admit, lol.
Absolutely incredible work! :)

Can't tell you how much I lvoe this 'verse, but I will keep trying, every time you post a new chapter. :)
Oh, Dean! I really think, (and am hoping I'm not wrong) that he's underestimating Sam at this point. Sam and Dad will never see eye-to-eye, it's true, but Sam will go to lengths for Dean that he never would for Dad alone. I know it will take a lot for Dean to believe that, despite everything that's already happened, and I grieve for him...Dean's been through so much. But I hope that - if Dean continues to clam up - Sam figures out enough to find him and help and PROVE that he's there for Dean, all the way. As a family, they've found a Middle Ground that doesn't always work, with Dad so firmly on one side and Sam so firmly on the other. But as brothers, they've come a lot further than that. Dean needs to trust Sam a little...let him in enough to show beyond a doubt that he's there for him. Sam won't let him down. Neither will Jess.
Can't wait for more!

Oh, that was wonderful. I have enjoyed so very much all of the stories in this series - you've written a terrific AU that still remains true to the characters, and I do hope you continue.

What happened to the other chapter?
I must say, I'm a little disappointed. You didn't include the two things I was looking foward to most. Dean meeting Jess' parents and him trying to give the best man speech.

(This is wild wolf free17. It was telling me I'd already reviewed this chapter.)
Aww, poor woobie!Dean. And now we're at canon! *hee*
Yay for this 'verse!

Ok I just read everything you have in "A Beer Verse" and it is absolutely fantastic. I'm totally hooked. I just love this exploration into what might have been. I've never been one for the Sam at Stanford stories, but this one is so beautifully done. I'm anxiously waiting for more. Update soon:-)
| Padfoot n' Moony chapter 10 . 6/30/2007
update soon! i swear, all your stories have the perfect combination of humor and angst in them. i can't wait to see the next chapter!

Ooh that was just fabulous! The Hug! The Make-Up! The freckles!
Loved every word. Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying this story! It's so nice to see a happy Sam and Dean - no matter how much bitching they do at the same time!
| Cheryl W chapter 10 . 6/21/2007
I absolutely loved this! It was such a wonderful feel good story that had me smiling from start to finish! In fact I finished reading the chapter and went right back and reread it!
Thank you so much for inventing this uplifting AU! I’ve enjoyed each addition you’ve tagged on and had to go “ah” time and again throughout each story. And this story was no different! So loved that Sam was fully prepared to cancel the wedding right there at the alter if Dean wasn’t there. That just felt so right…that he couldn’t seal his life with Jess’s without Dean being a part of it.
And then, when I was worried Dean was going to get overlooked at the reception, you had Sam be super aware that his brother wasn’t there. And then the hug…! You know I ate that up! You just know how to throw in the most genuine and touching brotherly moments…just Sam asking if Dean was Ok, knowing he wasn’t, helping him to his chair.
You’re a talented writer, a gifted storyteller and top notch at nailing those “ah” moments I so love. Can’t wait for the next chapter!

I've waited ages for the Wedding to come around! Much thanks, it was all that I hoped for and more!
| mtee1958 chapter 10 . 6/21/2007
That was great!
Sam - calm down honey. How cute is he with Jess!
Dean - doing anything to keep his brother happy on this special day! Such a sweetie
| Rhesa chapter 10 . 6/21/2007
That chapter was pure perfection. The humour was spot on. The hug and sweet brother moments heartwarming. Loved them all pitting make-up on Dean and discussing his looks. Loved the image of Sam meeting the array of relatives at the wedding. Your little touches of description - like the cousin with the perfume were wonderful. I love all your characters. Jess is warm and adorable, Jill is hilariously blunt - a great foil for Dean, and all the friends are nicely fleshed out. I say this every time I review a chapter in this verse, but I totally love this AU.I really hope you continue to add to it. There are so many possibilities - Sam eventually meeting John and John encountering Jess, Jess maybe finding out about the family buisness, Sam continuing to live his relatively normal life while Dean hunts. Jess and Sam having kids, or maybe even Sam getting visions. I just hope you keep going, you have created a fascinating universe with warm and loveable characters, and your writing is powerful, exciting, moving and often hilarious.
Thanks for the entertainment.
