Very good story. Tried to instill this lesson in my own kids. Proud to say it worked.

Very sweet. And a good point I haven't seen others make, of big brother/little brother v. just backing your brother up. I also like your version of John. Just wanted to point out that he goes from Wright to White in the story...and that they probably would have been Winchesters that early on, since Sam would've needed school records for college. But just a thought. Enjoyable piece.

Awesome fic. Perfect characterizations. I love Papa John.
Very well done.

I love this piece. Teen!Winchesters is probably my all time favorite. Dean would struggle with Sam maturing and you potrayed that with grace. And John's interaction with the principal was great.

What a cute and sweet little oneshot. I loved how you did it in John's pov. Sam protecting his brother for the first time and Dean not being sure about it- was fun to see played out here. Great job.

Awesome oneshot and I got to say that you sure surprised me with the revelation that it was Sam who broke Jimmy's nose because he was protecting Dean-I love it! Couldn't have been better!
| friendly chapter 1 . 4/6/2008

| teal-lover chapter 1 . 4/6/2008

| TraSan chapter 1 . 4/5/2008
Oh, most excellent. I think Dean would be feeling equal parts proud (because his Sammy had done well), and uncertain (would his position of big brother be the same after this). You captured that brilliantly.
And Sam wanting to be more like Dean was perfect. I loved this little romp into the Wee!Chester world. Nicely done.

What a sweet and well-written story about the boys and their Daddy when they were younger. Very interesting topic, too.
Your characterization of the Winchester men and John in particular was spot-on. I totally see him taking to that exact situation just the way he did in here. Despite his strict up-bringing of the boys, he would never punish them for defending each other against whatever tried to mess with them, rather fearing the other parent's repercussions.
Even though Dean was surely proud of his younger brother too, I can also understand his hesitating behaviour to the new situation. Yet, I agree with his father, he would have given those three bullies what they deserved eventually, no doubt about that; so, no need to worry. To date he went down several times but he always got back up and turned the tide in his favour.
One of the best scenes however, was the final 'struggle' the two kids had. That was such a typical Sam-and-Dean thing to do (in that age) to show their affection and yet not share a 'chick-flick-moment' per se.
Ms. Blair's tactically well placed/sized chair in front of her desk was a gorgeous idea - something I could really imagine a principal to do on purpose to provoke a certain reaction.
BTW (and no offence), when John offered to consider paying for the doctor's bill, you called him "Mr. White" instead of "Mr. Wright".
