I have to respectfully disagree with one of your previous reviewers who said that "The Outsiders" reference didn't feel quite right for Dean.
Though even the show overlooks it at times (ridiculously) it's been established that Dean reads! Even for pleasure. And that he is actually intelligent (Sam even calls him a genius at research and all the hunting stuff at one point, though, yes, Sam also has the tendency on occasion to treat him like he's completely stupid - my least favorite version of Sam).
Point is: "The Outsiders" is totally a book Dean would connect with. (How could he not?) Plus, you're not the only author that's made that connection. There are so many parallels Dean would connect with. I love the way you used the reference in this story, and the deeper characterization of Dean that you always go for. Too often he's painted like a caricature (even in some episodes on the show) and I love that you don't do that.
This was a lovely story. A lovely, fully characterized Dean, and a really beautiful, albeit painful, look at this time in his life. Excellent work all around.

I've read this before and greatly enjoyed it but I guess I didn't review. Shame on me! This is awesome...hits just the right chord, with perfect little details. Loved that Bobby came to the rescue :)

That was such a vivid picture of Dean's loneliness, so glad Bobby called.

Good job! Only bit that didn't quiet feel like Dean was The Outsiders reference, the rest was perfect.

Great S1 and pre- Dean!

That was amazing. I've always wanted to have flashback of what happened when Sammy was gone :)

I like this, short and sweet.
I always feel so bad for Dean, his family is so messed up and it seems like he's the one always left to deal with it. This shows that well, and it's well written.

I thought this was well done. It felt so lonely, which is probably accurate for this time in Dean's life. No wonder he eventually goes after Sammy when his dad disappears. Good job.
