Supernatural Fan Fiction Monthly Awards Review - December
You did an awesome job of showing Bobby's love for Sam and Dean, and how difficult it was for him to show it. Bobby thought a lot of things about John Winchester, some good and some bad, but he thought he loved his sons and wanted to make sure that Dean didn't forget that. I liked how he knew Dean well enough to know that he needed to talk to him without Sam around. Bobby knew just the right things to say to Dean, once he knew where Dean was coming from. Your depiction of the unease the two brothers still felt around each other, even as they were starting to connect again after the Trickster, was spot on. Nicely done!

Supernatural Fan Fiction Monthly Awards-Short Story/Drama-Dec 2015
A keenly observed story told from Bobby's point of view. I feel that John's been demonised (pun intended!) somewhat since you wrote this, but it's a lovely "fix it fic" of its time. Perhaps you'd consider writing in the Supernatural fandom again someday?

Supernatural Fanfiction Monthly Awards Review:
Telling this story in Bobby's voice was an excellent choice, and your voice and characterizations of both Bobby and the boys were consistently good throughout the story. Throughout the first season, John's silence hurt Dean greatly, and that anger, the wearing down of Dean's faith in his father's love, comes across strongly. The idea that John would have called Bobby and that his concern for the boys, and that Bobby sussed out John's reasons for watching from afar but not making contact - all of this backstory is both believable and in keeping with John and Bobby's characterizations.
This story had a nice buildup, between Dean's standard minimizing of his injuries, Sam's concern that was not over-dramatic, and Dean's obvious desire to talk to Bobby but his reluctance and his need for privacy- with the cover story of talking about cars. It was wonderful how Bobby knew just how to get through to Dean, and his realization at the end that the goodness in both boys was, all told, John's legacy, despite his parenting issues. It all came out naturally, which is hard to do in this type of story.
Kudos on a solid and enjoyable read.

This was your first spn story? It's great! Angsty big bro Dean is my crack and you have wonderfully fed my addiction! :) The ending was perfect as was the moment between Dean and Bobby. Thanks for the read!

And all told, one hell of a story. That was incredible. I think you got Bobby and Dean more perfectly in pitch than anyone else I've read. Great story, great writing. Thank you.

Thank you for writing this Supernatural story and for posting it. I enjoyed it when I read it yesterday evening.

I agree that John probably turned up during season 1 a great many times without showing his face. Nicely done. :)

Best fix it fic ever! And so sorely needed too!

Thank you for showing both John and Dean in their true light. It seems quite rare to find stories that actually acknowledge that Dean has depths and needs people - his family of course, but needs to be cared about and needs to care about people. In seasons 1 and 2, I thought the show was unambiguous about that but I find it hard to find stories - writers - that realise it. Very well written and an enjoyable read. Thanks.

This is fantastic. I love how Bobby is able to heal the rift that Dean wasn't even aware was there, while all of them were still able to hold on to their manliness and not be too chick-flicky. Just all around great.

Really lovely story, and the voices are true to the characters. Loved the Dean angst and Bobby's appropriate responses. Thanks for a great story.
