Very good story.

So umm.. I can't believe that I never reviewed the final chapter of this amazingly lovely story of yours! Please accept my apologies!
Aching lungs made every breath burn in his chest, denied him oxygen to call his brother’s name.
Dean leapt across the hood and half slid, half fell to the passenger side door. “Sam!”
-A hood slide! Yes!
Moaned and flopped back, misery etched on his face. “Cold. Please, hurts.”
-omg, this is heartbreaking!
“No-one comes out here.”
“Not without an invitation, huh?”
Brad bowed his head. The man beside him looked between them, and looked away.
“Really. You think?” Dean gunned the engine. “You’re a stubborn bastard.”
“Shut up and breathe.”
-Too freaking cute. Seriously.
“Don’t know what you mean. Sam wanted strawberry icecream on chocolate pancakes, there’s this—“
Perfect ending to a perfect story. Again, so sorry that it took me this long to review. I can't wait until your next story!

I just read your whole story in one day... 'cuz a) I'm new to the Supernatural show, and have been playing catch-up with the episodes and all, plus b) you're story's freaking good.
Anyway, why I liked it: you're description through Dean's third POV was detailed and in-character, the plot made sense and kept moving through it all, and I'm a total sadist. I shall add this to my fave's... yeah, definitely a fave...
Season three needs to hurry the hell up, but this huge fanfiction section (ten-thousand stories! I was excited when the section my story's in reached ONE-thousand) is stemming my impatience. A little. Okay, not much, but it still helps.
Once again, great job, and have fun at the convention!

Wow. I don't even know where to start. Your every h/c scene humbles my own because you do it with such beautiful detail and vocabulary and feeling. You could feel Sam's failing body along with him and Dean's utter desperation and fear. Good plot and I like how it didn't end where you expected it to, although after a while the litany of hurt grew rather painful to read. I like my endings a little more cheerful than this one, but man, that's a moving piece.

So totally just found this...okay that's a slight lie. I didn't think it was complete because it wasn't under the complete status and I try my hardest not to start stories until they are complete. (You have NO idea how impatient I can be.) But finally I gave in and read it anyway, only to find out it WAS complete. So that was a special little chocolate-flavored suprise for me.
Anyway I love, just LOVE your style of writing. It's classic, with it's own unique twist. Some people focus on the actions others on the thoughts and feelings you so cleverly integrate both that it feels like I'm watching it on TV instead of reading it.
And your characterizations of Sam and Dean...dead on! Seriously, it just adds to that whole episodic...TV watching feeling I get when I'm reading your stories. They're snarky and funny while serious when they need to be.
Great story, I look forward for another one from you. (But take your time, no pressure.)

I just read the whole story and I loved it! I can't wait to read more of your stories. Hope you post one soon.
| Windyfontaine chapter 7 . 6/1/2007
Ah, so so sorry for the late review, been catching up on stuff. I'm just now getting to read this, sigh. And wow, you really start this with a bang! "The Impala, headlights as dual condemning eyes, ..."-what awesome imagery! Oh and sorry if I'm probably repeating what other reviewers have already said, just that when I see something really cool that's new to me I need to comment :) And cool, Sam managed to defend himself! But his prior injury...ouch! Liked the sea star image though. But oh, I kinda laughed when Sam said he'd have the car fixed...like Dean was going to worry about the Impala when his brother is bleeding? Well yeah, it is his baby, but still. But he's a Winchester, so he has to cover it up with a gruff yeah you're paying, although normally his brother would know he's joking :)
Wow, they haven't been through enough, they still need to go back to the town? Er, okay. Well at least they got the buildings to burn. And man, I really hope it's cathartic for Sam. "“Geek boy logic?”" Lol! I like how in the middle of angst and pain you can still put in a little humor. I do feel a little bad for Brad, being possessed must suck, especially if he has to pay for the aftermath that wasn't his fault. But Dean's right, his priority is Sam.
Ah I love the brotherly banter! You get it so right :) And heh, Nurse Sondra, lol. She knows something hinky went on-she's cool. Hope she figures out that they did indeed get "it" :D Ahh, the end. Sigh. That was an extremely satisfying ending to a really good story. Awesome fantastic wonderful job! *Insert icon of hands clapping* Darn, I really wish I could go to that convention, but will be probably thinking of it that weekend then. Thanks so much for sharing this story, and for finishing it. Will be looking forward to your next one, even one of those cool one shots. Hope you have a great weekend, and take it easy :)

great story! you're my hero. all the limp!sam... it's intense. i was really happy in this last chapter with Sam's "Flamin' Nerd" comment. i was hoping he wouldn't have lost his sense of humor or anything. thanks for writing! keep it up! i look forward to another story!
| Kaewi chapter 7 . 5/26/2007
I can't thank you enough for not abandoning this! I swear, this story has everything I love in it. It's too bad you lost your motivation for it, but I'm so grateful that you in fact finished it.
The ending was definitely not a disappointment. I like that you made this comparison: "His body would heal, his mind may not." At first I would think Dean wouldn't let Sam watch the fire for so long, but that statement is totally true and Dean would know that Sam needed that closure.
I really enjoyed the scene where Sam said he wanted to go to Vegas first, and then relenting. I can't really explain why, but I think it's because of the banter and characterisation. That part is really an indicator of how the brothers are. Despite all his pain, Dean is still joking and comforting and Sam trying to act strong despite the deep pain. I just liked it.
That, and Sondra. She turned out to be a really neat character addition.
I guess it's pointless to ask for an epilogue, but hopefully you'll be coming out with a new one soon anyway :)

I was so excited when I saw that you had posted another story. I love your writing. You were the first person I read on this site which I am grateful for, I've read alot since, that may have turned me away. I'm sorry I didn't stop to review each chapter so your getting it all lumped into one.
Anyway love this story. My poor Sammy, You cruel woman the things you did to that poor boy! I think my heart cringed when Sam started believing that he was really responsible for all the horrible things they accused him of doing.
I was starting to get a bit concerned when it didn't look like Brad was going to snap out of it and help. Poor Dean I think that is the most hopeless I've seen him(except of course in ahbl pt2 )when he was locked up and he could hear the ropes creaking and knew they had hung Sam. You just about killed me there and can I just say what a mean cliffhanger!
Thanks for saving Sam and awesome end to a great story.

No one, but no one, writes imperiled Sam like you. The bar is set so high as to be invisible to the naked eye. :)
Another THRILLING tale and how extra happy was I to see that the nurse paid attention and KNEW something supernatural was in the offing? Excellent detail. :)
I so wish I could go to the con to meet you all, but I will be there in spirit - and can't wait to hear all about it.
(And thank you, once again, for the lasting image of Samm as a gunslinger. True to the fic or not, it has given me many happy moments of daydreams. :D)

Oh man, so many places to begin review...where to begin...
"A blood stain, tennis ball size, fingered outwards from a central point to form a gory scarlet sea-star just above Sam’s right hip."
I'm going to start here because the "gory scarlet sea-star" description just made me die I love it so much!
"Frost coated the windows, obscured a view of the interior of the car. Worse than the night he had gotten lucky with Janine, the red-headed waitress from Oscar’s Diner in Keyhole, Nebraska. They had drawn lurid images on the windows of the car in their post-coital inebriation, and Dean had been too endorphin drunk to realize that they’d show up next time the car’s windows frosted up."
This would be such a cool stand alone fic, but even as a stand alone paragraph it's such an in-character thing for Dean to have done. The boy has such fun with sex. And John finding out is such a hilarious image.
"Expected to find pellet peppered flesh"
You are queen of the awesome descriptions in this chapter. Gold stars all around.
“I’ll pay to have it fixed.”
I wanted to bang my head into the key board at this part! Sam is heading towards unconsciousness, Dean is having an older brother panic attack, and Sam is worried about the leather! Aw Sammy!
Dean nodded, his fingers tingling. “Geek boy logic?”
I always get a kick out of Dean referring to Sam as a geek or a nerd or a college boy. I'm sort of in love with the fact that Sam is a brainy, book loving kind of guy, and you know Dean finds it endearing as well.
"the irregular arch of one eyebrow wasn’t from a misplucked hair, but from a thin scar."
I thought this throw in about the nurse was really interesting just because you know that the people our boys have saved have an idea that there are other things out there in the dark, so who's to say that others who went through similar experiences aren't walking around.
I thought this story was really cool! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Aww! Great job, "Oh yeah, Sam was a Winchester alright – through and through. The pride that swelled threatened to strangle Dean, but he swallowed it down and kept his expression neutral." I loved this line- that so classic Dean! Your use of the english language is amazing, Im currently taking an advanced english class and we're working on using similes, metaphors, etc. in our writing and I see how well they work!
Anyway, terrific job I loved this story!

Great Ending :)
