|Reviews for What's in a Name|
| Benigma chapter 1 . 8/30/2008
Hey! Had to check out some of your other stuff, and again, I'm sitting here shaking my head in disbelief that something this good is available for free on the internet!
It's just awesome. You have the boys more in character than the show sometimes does.
Those place names are just hilarious; what a fantastic notion to build a story around! I'm not going to even try picking out my favourite parts, the whole story from start to finish is my favourite part!
You are a seriously gifted writer. I plan to read all your stories eventually, so if review alerts start popping up for them, it could just well be me!
THANK YOU for sharing your talent. You picked the best TV series ever to showcase it!

Very cute. Great banter, boys seemed very in character. I also loved reading about the funny place names. Is the website Sam got them all from real?
Loved this description of Dean: "He was a walking, talking contradiction; cocky yet insecure, a hardass and a teddy bear, wise beyond his years and yet, in some ways, incredibly naïve." Too true. I think that is why we all love him so much. He's such an interesting mix of toughness and vulnerability.
Nicely done! This is the first story of yours I've read, but I'll definitely check out others.

Punkeydoodle? Really? really really?
There are words to describe this fic: Poignant. Touching. Funny. Damn Hilarious (two words I know but hey) Depressing.
You had me 'Oh Sam'-ing and usually I am all 'Oh Dean'-ing all over the place (and there were a few) but really this was an 'Oh Sam' fic and a 'i just wanna smish him' fic.
Most poignant, touching, depressing town name: Hell-for-Certain.

Great story. Characters were spot on and the dialogue was fantastic. :D
Ah America, home of the weird name places. I remember driving through Gnaw Bone, Indiana (pronounced Ger-Ner-Ber-Nee or something insane like that) and Bland, Virginia which totally lived up to its name XD Ooh, and I went to Kill Devil Hills when I was still living in North Carolina and totally thought of SPN.
Keep on writing!

Cool fic! damn they are some weird names the strangest place name in New Zealand is , it's 2nd longest in the world, it translates (from Maori) to ‘The hilltop where Tamatea with big knees, conqueror of mountains, eater of land, traveller over land and sea, played his koauau (flute) to his beloved.’ Beloved being his brother who died in battle. there, some random info for ya, and again, great fic!

OmG You gotta be kidding me! Those names can't be real! Okay then, I believe you - but hell that cracked me up! If I don't review your next chapter in "Bridging..." it might very well be due to my trying to find such awesome city names on German maps!
However, this story didn't only make me laugh (although I laughed a lot!), it also had some of those great Winchester-brother-moments that catch your breath because there's so much in what they say. It's like that in the show, and so it is in your stories. You're really great at showing the different characters how they really are, both in how they act and in what they say, and my favorite part was Dean's characterization in the end: "He was a walking, talking contradiction; cocky yet insecure, a hardass and a teddy bear, wise beyond his years and yet, in some ways, incredibly naïve." What's to add?
Gonna head off to your other story after I've tidied up that mess that's supposed to be my room *lol* (And here's the hidden honour: I haven't watched "Dream a little dream of me" yet, but I'll do that in the evening and read your story first! :) )
Have a nice day!

As a Pennsylvania girl, I feel I must add the towns of Blue Balls and Virginville to the list! I laughed aloud at Dean's "Paradise via Intercourse", hilarious.
Very nice little story here, I'm a big Hurt!Dean fan, and I loved the humor of it all, it felt very natural, not at all forced.

| Nana56 chapter 1 . 1/24/2008
This was hilarious! I loved it!
| heather03nmg chapter 1 . 1/13/2008
Aw I loved this. It had puns and angst and Dean pain and sleepy Dean and concussed Dean and um Dean. (really it's a sickness)
What more could I ask for?
Amazing job writing the boys and keeping them true to character, perfect brotherly banter, brilliant Dean snark...Kripke would be proud!

Gosh, and I thought we had some weird town names here in Australia! If I lived in half of those towns... well ok, most of those towns, I would so emmigrate! It was a really ingenious story line.. really funny and yet sad too. Thanks

Saw your post at SCOLARS and decided to check out your story. It was great! Thanks for sharing and will look forward to more of yours.
| Supernoodle chapter 1 . 10/17/2007
Ah, that was really good. You managed to blend in the H/C, Sam's angst over THE DEAL and an amusing little story about the strangely named towns of America perfectly.
Gold Stars for you!
