Just another wonderful chapter Bambers! I'm so happy to see this story getting the respect and attention it deserves here. Just goes to prove that the readers on this site are a more intelligent lot in general... Certainly more open-minded... I continue to love how you are handling this very sensitive subject. I think that you have Sam's reactions just perfect. I'm looking forward to how Dean is going to deal with all this too. From the survivor's guilt to his own super attuned I let my little brother down guilt - it's gonna tear our boy up that he "let" this happen to Sam. Can't wait for the next chapter...

Great start to this story, I honestly can't see why it would've gotten banned on that other site you talked about. There are right ways and wrong ways to handle a subject this sensitive, and I think you're going about it respectfully and very realistically.
Sam's feelings - how he revolts at any touch now, feels this compulsive need to wash himself because he still feels defiled, and is afraid and ashamed to tell his brother, his self-incriminating thoughts that it doesn't happen to men, much less a Winchester man - are heartbreaking but completely make sense for him to be having, even though it's in NO way his fault. Hopefully Dean will make him be able to understand that whenever the truth does come out.
Dean's reactions make perfect sense too; he suspects it because all the signs are there, but of course there's that all-too understandable denial - the 'no, it couldn't be that...THAT couldn't ever happen to MY baby brother' attitude. But it's inevitable that neither boy will be able to keep up their denial, especially as Sam continues to have the nightmares and horrific flashbacks. Definitely looking forward to the next update and seeing how the situation progresses from here, you're handling the subject just fine in my opinion. :-)

Nice start. I like how Dean kinda knows but he's in denial that anything like THAT could happen to his brother. Rape is hard on the victim but male victims have an added self given stigma and you can see Sam is suffering for it already.
The brief glimpses of flashback were chilling but I look forward to both Dean and John's (if he is in the story) reaction and I hope they stand behind Sam. But this is your story and you'll tell it the way you like - which is captivating in a scary kinda way, so far.

Wow. I was so upset when I saw that it was removed from the other board. It seems like a great story of strength, and I was happy that you decided to post it here. I think you did a great job writing this. I can't wait to read the next chapter

You've got my attention! I'm not sure how long Sam will be able to keep this from Dean, especially with Dean's plan to follow Sam. I'm looking forward to more!

good start. can't wait for more
How old are the boys in this story
| sammygirl1963 chapter 1 . 2/26/2008
OMG Bambi, what an awesome new story! I can't believe that Sam was sexually attacked. There is no way he is going to be able to keep that from Dean, I mean he is probably going to have some wicked nightmares from this one. And Dean is bound to notice how Sam is repulsed by being touched!
Can't wait to see what happens next!

Oh, that's awful! Dean's going to kick some serious ass, but I think it might be better if he lets the authorities handle it. Hm.
Poor Sammy! Denial, shame, etc. Poor kid. I'm glad you're posting it here.

I am SO glad to see that you have started posting this fic here where it will get the attention it deserves - from intelligent and open-minded readers! A fabulous start to a subject that you are so brave to tackle. It's great to see this treated in such an intelligent and sensitive way. I'm eagerly awaiting your updates, as always Bambers! Amazons rule (the true ones anyway...)

Don't see why it was banned. Great start.
| Ms Hobgoblin chapter 1 . 2/26/2008
Its a shame it was banned from another site. It is always a touchy subject, but so long as it is written with consideration I see nothing wrong with it.
A great start, Deans concern, but also blaise behaviour was good. Sams reactions were expected and well written.
| Hilz72 chapter 1 . 2/26/2008
It is such a shame you had to take this story down from the other site as you mentioned. I don't really understand why, as I think you've written this chapter beautifully & very sensatively. You've also managed to capture the Sam's feelings here wonderfully. I'm not usually one for stories about Sam & Dean when they were younger, but I'm certainly liking this one! Please continue this story, I think it's great.
