Aww. Great job!

It's heartbreaking to think something might be trying to get Dean to hurt his little brother. That would be devastating for both of them.
I loved this line: "there was nowhere else it was more important for him to be than with his very own Dean." Aw...so sweet.
Glad Mary seems to be watching over them.

Loved your story... lots of research... very interesting and oh so love my baby Sammy... he is such a sweetie... and big brother Dean ... loved when he said... I know he is "ours" but he's really "Mine"..

I-I-I don't even know what to say! I really need to stop reading heartbreaking, aww/ahh inducing Wee!Winchester stories!
*sigh* Just perfect, really loved and loved the play of Dean's amulet into it. And of course, the boys' unfailing love towards each other!

A great way to end your story sifi! I like your version of the bestowing of the pendant. And it's interesting that although it's ostensibly FOR protection, Dean instantly wanted it to mean that he could BE a protector - which of course he is. Loved the character of the professor too. Sorry about the delay in getting to this, you know it's not for lack of trying! Oh, and the love you mention in your Author's Notes really shines through in your stories - it's why I like to read them so much! Thanks again!

Oh, I did so love lil Sammy in this one - 3 is such a cute age :) And another amulet story...it's such a wonderful mystery right now, you can see a million stories in it! Kudos, I loved it :)

Well Sifi, its not often that I read something and sit there with a big fat grin of wonder on my face. Wonder that in the brief short, bittersweet and totally delightful WeeWinchester story, you have managed to weave into the core of it the foundation of your mythology for the world to come for the boys. And you know just how much I love that unique world you have let the older boys inhabit.
Anyways WeeWinchesters. The agony a too old 7 year old goes through, the pain and distress of the injuries done to his still so innocent little brother is perfectly expressed here on a talk (rare moment) with his dad:
He’s all you have left of your mother...” John finished for him.
“Yeah...” he choked, “...and he still... he still trusts me dad... he still loves me... even after everything... and I know it’s crazy but you know... you were right... you always said he was mine... and well he’s ours, but he’s MINE dad... my little brother... and I coulda...” he couldn’t continue.
That sums it up perfectly for their lives to come. Sammy is his. His, and only his to wrap up and protect. And even as young as he is the littlest Winchester has always known this. Never frightened of 'his' brother:
I’n not scared of MY Dean...”
So another beautifully crafted piece of work, totally stunningly in just 3 chapters and leaving me so much happier that the threatened drought from your pen instead turned into a WeeWinchester flood of delight to slate my thirst!
P.s. Big C comes a visiting at the end too - No? adding even more to the deep mythological ark you have invented here - sheer joy girl, sheer joy. Roz
P.p.s. And so endeth the sucking of the wee thumb!

Oh wow, wonderful ending. And your possessive Dean always warms my heart.
Wee - I'm still smiling.

First, I'd like to say, sorry for not getting to this sooner. Had a non-stop day today (that and ffn wasn't playing nice earlier). So I apologize.
Meep! Poor possessed Dean... Poor John and Jim.
"they’d have to know they could rely on each other through everything, that there wasn’t anything they couldn’t say to each other or to him. " Boy... what happened to our boys? Well, not the relying part. I think they still rely on each other, but they certainly do get tight-lipped, don't they?
raisinets - ha ha ha. :)
Love the tickle-fight.
CERNUNNOS! I love that dude - well, your version of him, anyway. - interesting place Babylon, one of the first Horned Gods came out of there... Enki was his name...Yeah... he has an interesting history y’know... quite a busy guy. - ha ha... Love Cernunnos' energy, style, playfulness. And, by the way... nice tie-in mentioning Enki by name. Very nice. Ha ha... his focus is firtility and rebirth hee hee... Ah, so good.
Love it. And love the part with Sammy having to give up thumb-sucking. :)
And, by the way... I didn't comment through most of the middle because it was still too intense to take breaks from and it was just so darn good, there wouldn't be anything but praise to say about it.
The whole story really was beautifuly done - intense, touching, and nice tie-in with both canon and your 'verse (you know... you're going to have to give your 'verse a name...). Nice set-up for future fic ... um... that have already been written, and more to come, I'm sure. Right? Right? Right.
Okay then. Awesome job!

Oh Sifi, this chapter was so beautiful! I just loved it. Dean's (at 7!) FIGHT with the entity within to save his brother, trying to make his body useless to it! Just broke my heart.
Absolutely fantastic! Thanks for this terrific ride and I won't ever doubt you again, I promise!
| Loopynlovinit chapter 3 . 7/8/2007
Sifi, You gave me chills. And then you made me go 'aw'. I was so engrossed in reading this on the board and reviewing that I didn't even realize my cd had finished! Awesome job!
| carocali chapter 3 . 7/8/2007
Well that's a pretty cool way for Dean to get the amulet! But WHO gave it to him? Hm. Poor little 7 year old, having to deal with all that. He is the protector though!
Nice work! I'm glad I stumbled onto your piece! Very well thought out and well written!
| MadMidgetTwins chapter 3 . 7/8/2007

| Fafa Fai chapter 3 . 7/8/2007
gret and good and well done. John was so perfect here.
| sammygirl1963 chapter 3 . 7/8/2007
Awesome ending to a wonderful story!
I like the way you brought Dean's amulet into the story! I always wondered what kind of backstory might go with the amulet and who knows, it might be something like you just wrote!
