Awww, warm fuzzies over that last sentence.
I love how you didn't make everything all magically better for the Bros. Dean is still carrying that horrible weight of the secret their Dad put on him. He's survived through this latest hunt but his dilemma still remains.
That's right. Keep that angst and tension level elevated. Makes the story better. Gives it more flavor.
Thank you for the roadtrip.:)

This is the most honest and open I've ever seen the bros with each other. Their pain and grief over losing their Dad is almost palpable. They remind me of two little lost black lambs bleating for rescue or guidance
I wish I was more like him."Sam heard Dean snicker.
Hell, even I snickered at this one. :) Sammy set himself up for that one.
Loved this chappy, thank you for it.

Great chapter. I love love love the angst level of both Bros.
I love how they care about and look out for each other. And how they always know when something's not right with the other one.

Great story! Very interesting twists and good depth to the hunt - I usually read for the brotherly moments, but this had some substance to it as well :)

Good, original, creative idea. You really did a good job with thr conversation & rapport between the two brothers. The story had a natural flow to the whole story. Good backstory that helped progress the story. Nice, quiet ending. Overall it was a good piece, and I liked the "monster." Maybe it was a little anticlimactic, but maybe I was just expecting too much.

Nice twist with it being someone missing instead of a death. Too bad John's not with Mary...but we won't tell the boys yet. They deserve some peace of mind! Well written, good job with the boys.

I was going to wait to the end to comment, but I couldn't. This is great. You've done a wonderful job with the boys. The dialogue and angst is so them. Really liked this line:
“But I don’t want you to be scared. I’m not going to do anything stupid. Well, not any more stupid than normal.”
That's perfectly Dean.I like the vetala as the killer, especially since it involves someone not being buried as he/she wanted by the kids...resonates with our boys loosing their dad.

Great wrap up. I loved the way you wrote of Dean's affirming for Sam that John DID love him, that his funeral was appropriate and that going away to univerity was the right move for him - all from his understanding of Sam's hidden agenda, his REAL heart, when discussing the hunt. Very need in the SPN scheme of things. An intuitive reaction from Dean and a clever piece of writing from you. I just loved "You wanna talk about it?” “Nope.” “I do.” “I know,”" beautiful simple in writing such a complex relationship.

I really enjoyed this story and I love the super quick updates... kept me entertained this week since the clock has decided to slow down to a crawl! LOL! Again great job on this story and have a great time tomorrow night!

Great Story so far i am really going to enjoy seeing what will happen between Sam and Dean!

I love how grounded your fics are. I can always see them happening-the interactions, the emotions. It's what makes them fun to read.
I'm a Sam girl, so I especially loved the beginning of this chapter. Sam needed to hear Dean say that their dad knew he didn't hate him. I still feel like screaming at Dean to assure Sam of that at the end of ELAC (I know he had his own issues too at that time, so I don't really want to scream AT him). It was such a subdued scene, which is how it'd be. And bless Dean for telling Sam that he needed to go because he probably would have self destructed if he stayed.
| Jennygeee chapter 2 . 10/3/2007
Another great chapter, poor Dean - apologising all the time to Sam for him being there and not John and it's lovely to hear Sam say he would rather it be Dean alive as he has always been there for him. Love it.
| KatieLB chapter 2 . 10/2/2007
Another great chapter... love the badie... love that the boys are stumped... great job on the 'moment' LOL... just the right amount not to mushy but everyone had their say. 2 MORE DAYS!

And you're back with another amazing story!
I actually saw this at work this morning but I couldn't find the time to sneak away to read it :( Now that I have, I'm so very happy. This is another unique one. And of course I just love the angst. I'm curious about the guy you have coming to help them.
Can't wait for the next chapter. As always, I've found myself hooked to another one of you're stories. You always manage to snag me! :)
