Really good story, really well written. Great to see a fellow Aussie writing too, although now I've read so many American authors that 'torch' just really stood out, ha ha. Thank you for writing!

Recommended to me and I'm so glad it was. A wonderful story, perfectly in character and expertly written.

Love, love, love, love it! And the ending? Absolutely, perfectly Dean. _

Great story, great Dean and Sam, that balance beam between love and love :)

Loved it - especially how you write younger Dean with younger Sam. Because siblings in real life get frustrated with each other like that. You know? You just wrote it very realistically. Loved the interposed flashbacks and Sam being lovably-awesome. Most of all - loved Dean's angst.
Nicely done. :)

That story was ridiculously adorable. Great job.
| Enkidu07 chapter 1 . 4/23/2008
that was sweet. I especially like the post it that Sam left. Of course I remember, you jackass. Ah pure love right there. Awesomeness.

"Dean had almost forgotten, had to duck back down the hallway at the last minute. He dropped down onto his knuckles and flattened against the floorboards, looked up underneath the bed. He didn’t know why it was so important that he see it, and now he was frowning because there was something stuck to the wall over the carved letters. He shuffled his shoulder further in, reached up under the bed frame and pulled the square of paper free from the tape holding it to the wall.
Of course I remember, you jackass.
Sam’s writing. He shook his head. Twisted his lips around a surprised smile. He glanced back at the wall.
Dear God help my brother from monsters."
I had to gasp and laugh when I read this - I so wasn't expecting it. Your stories are just made of awesome - I can't get over how true the tone is to the characters and the series itself. You always seem to get it just right. I read a LOT and always have and when I read something really good, it makes me wonder about the person who wrote it and what they're like - I think I'm in love with you. (But don't worry - I'm only a virtual stalker - hope that's okay.

Fabulous! Understated and touching. Love the contrast between how much Dean cared for his brother and how gruff he was with him in the Weechester timeline. The boys felt like BOYS here in a way that they don't in some fics.
Loved their approaches toward faith, in both timelines. How it ends up faith in each other more than anything.
This line section particularly stuck with me, long after I'd finished the story:
But if I say everyone, then I know.’
‘That I said ‘em.’
Dean didn’t really have an answer for that. He looked at Sam’s pale moonlit face and thought maybe he understood. Swinging the bat when you knew the ball had gone wide over the plate? Sometimes you couldn’t help it.

Aw, Sam did remember *glee* that was really good. I liked the end, it was funny haha.
| Pedellea chapter 1 . 10/21/2007
This story is one of the best I've read in recent times. I loved the interchange between the then-and-now Dean and Sam. It also hit a chord since I believe in prayer and God and all that jazz. Carving a prayer under my bed - I'll have to try that one. Anyway, excellent insight into the characters. You handled them really well. Thanks!

I seem to be rapidly approaching a bittersweet moment, in which I have read all of your fics and I have to WAIT for the next one!
Thanks for the WIaWSNB tag...it's one of my favorite episodes, and this was nicely done. I see some people take objection to Dean's roughness with Sam as a kid, but it's a protective roughness and as the younger sister to an older brother...that's pretty much how it is until you get to a certain point. So it's ringing true for me :)

This is just so adorable. It's not schmoopy in any way, but it conveys such an intensity of feeling it took my breath away. Awesome work, thank you.
| gatorpez chapter 1 . 8/12/2007
What a wonderful fic, and a great tag to "What Is..." The boys, and especially Dean, definitely needed some downtime after the events with the Djinn. Thanks for posting this fic.

Except for the fact that my beloved Dean would never have been such a bully to his little brother, there's SO much GREAT stuff in this piece! From the get-go!
"I fell asleep. Battery ran out. Forgot you were overdue and maybe dead." Already he's so jaded about their life-broke my heart.
"When you said you wanted to lay low for a few days, I just figured there’d be more…‘ Sam gave the heavily wooded national park a sweeping gaze and slowly shook his head ‘…neon? At the very least I thought there’d be a bar.’" Wonderful! In fact, now-Sam is pretty dang funny through the entire story, and I loved that you colored him in that way.
"And when Dean Winchester touched the brake, you paid attention. Looked around for other signs of the apocalypse. Frogs falling from the sky, water circling the wrong way down drains…that sort of thing." So true-great observation.
"‘But if I say everyone, then I know.’
‘That I said ‘em.’"
Again with the heart-breaking.
From the bathroom sink to the sandwich-awesome. You really put us right there with him. The black eye-torture, through and through (in a good way!), all the way to the end.
Aww. God bless Sam. God bless Dean (whose behavior can be so incredibly inappropriate). God bless pdragon! You rock, you!
