Great descriptions of Dean trying to get out to Sam in that mud. I could picture it exactly. We used to get mud like that out in the cow pens in the spring when the frost is coming out of the ground. Not as deep thankfully but deep enough to lose your gumboots in. It’s the most frustrating stuff to try to get out of ever and of course being in the cow pens you can imagine how it smells…lol.
“A little sugarcoating wouldn’t hurt,” Dean muttered. -lol Ah Dean. I love Dean muttering.
Sam never had trouble making himself heard. – love that
Oh I like that part you added where we kinda get a bit of how the stress of Dean’s having to just sit back while others rescued Sam and poor Percy.
Well you know how much I love the radio chatter and the shouting ready back and forth..it just adds so much excitement to the story. This is still one of the most interesting rescue type stories I’ve read in this fandom. I think cos you have enough information to get a real good clear picture of what’s going on without it getting too technical. Very exciting.
Awe only one more chapter.

I’m such a bad friend …this has been posted forever and I’m just now reviewing. I’m so sorry I had intended to do write one as soon as you were done posting and then with going away and stuff when I got back I forgot all about it…I’m sorry.
So Wow did you ever flesh this out. From five thousand words to eighteen…that’s a lot of flesh…lol.
You know I couldn’t help think when Sam was telling that little boy that he should be proud of trying to help his family that maybe he should try to keep that in mind as he mulls over his anger at Dean for doing the same thing. And I’m not knocking Sam here cos you know he’s my favourite and I’m not knocking Dean either for that deal and you know how much I hate that thing but I thought Sam’s words to the little boy kind of put Dean’s actions in a bit of perspective too. Not sure if that even makes sense but I know you are one of the few people that can make sense out of my even more rambly thoughts.
Tantrums at twenty two…lol? I know exactly how Dean feels!
I’m sure I told you when this was “mud” how much I loved that description of the impala coming to that roaring stop and that screeching reverse. Loved that part and also when the hills starts to slide was just so cool, I can almost hear it.

I really liked your story. It is about time that Dean realized how much he means to his brother... heck how much he means to Bobby and all the people he still has to save. These boys can't just throw their lives away. They are too valuable to the people in need. Loved this...

great story, really liked it, thanks!

I remember reading this story on SFTCOL(AR)S. It was fantastic there and simply amazing here. Re-styled and new. I love the thought you put into it and details of why Sam didn't want to be left alone. It brought everything more into focus. Season 3 was a bit of a disappointment to me. Not because Dean made the deal...and he would go to Hell..But because they focused so much on that part it, it felt like they forgot to tell the story and put color into it. That doesn't make sense as I read it...but I, at least, know what I mean. Even if I can't express it. In any case...Great job!
| AnickaMarie chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
Fabulous! I love how you gave Dean some understanding of how Sam is feeling with the deal. As always, great job.
Hope you have fun in Shenandoah and keep an eye out for Sam & Dean. After Hozho I totally believe they could show up there too! :D

Great story, loved it from beginning to end. It seemed to real, that Sam crashed, right after Dean kinda told him off about trying to get out of the deal. Loved your firemen, they were really awesome. I can tell, you know their business in and out. The compromise in the end, this was just to funny, basically "don't ask don't tell". Hope you have a great time and bring back many ideas for new stories. Wouldn't mind seeing the boys back where you put them before. Hugs, Vonnie

The mud actually helped keep Sam alive. I like it!
And the story rings true for me, for where the guys were mentally at the beginning of Season 3.
Have fun on your trip.
| Harrigan chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
I love revisiting this! Setting it in early season 3 worked beautifully. What better way to show Dean beginning to understand Sam's helpless frustration!
Hope your vacation is just what you need to replenish your creative energies for new fic!
| Liz Bach chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
Oh, ouch. That last line is especially heartbreaking now that we know there really was no hope for poor Dean at all. Really enjoyed the story. I laughed out loud at the Dean Norris reference. He went to my high school! A long time before I did, but still... ;o)
| apieceofcake chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
Enjoyed it, thank you :-)
Hope you have a good break!
| Thorny Hedge chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
Like all your work, it was wonderful. This one was especially heartbreaking, with all the references to Dean's deal, the lines around Sam's mouth, etc. Loved it!
| kokoda2007 chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
Loved this the first time I read it - and now its even better. Great job!
| Left Hook chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
After all the season 1 stories you write it's interesting to see your take on season 3. A nice little story (and kudos on the insight on how things played out in season 3) so have fun on your trip and thanks for writing!
| Trish62 chapter 3 . 8/1/2008
I enjoyed this story. I like a good limpSam story, one that seems realistic. I really liked that Dean has to call the rescuers in, that he isn't by Sam's side continually as they rescue him, that the hospital kicks him out, that he goes to a diner. I get tired of stories where they plant him next to Sam, demanding that he won't leave and that rescuers/staff cave even if he's in the way.
I also liked that the boys start off helping rescue others in a more normal situation and that a few OC's are in the story. All in all a nice well rounded story. Well done!
