This story was absolutely AMAZING! It had everything, EVERYTHING I love and could ask for in a story!
Such incredible writing that is so satisfying to read! Kripke & Co. could use you right now, lol!
I hung on to every tension-filled word of the crash aftermath. The concern oozing from Dean was nearly tangible - then his almost superhuman effort to reach the top of the slope, only to be thrown back down by Barnes...gaahh! That was GREAT!
I totally loved their argument about the phone. As ticked off as Sam was and he still thought to take care of Dean! LOVE that he can hustle as well as Dean:
"I should piss you off more often. It improves your game." "Bite me." Oh, that's a sheer delight!
Sam's delirium and his flashbacks to Jess and John were just brilliant - no other word to describe it! On top of all the nerve-wracking drama, you weave in the most wonderful comments from Dean that showcase his dry humour to perfection!
"...she's a goddess, he's a spirit, different unions..."
"Still good? No Pink Floyd light show? No twin big brothers?"
"Awesome. Except for the splinters in my ass from that slide across the floor."
"All the ugly-ass demons and puke-inducing creatures we go up against on a daily basis, we finally run into a hot babe - a naked, hot babe - who's good with cars, no less - and I'm too freakin' out of it to notice. It's just not fair." ROFL!
"Touche? See, that's why you need more Jaws, less Mockingbird - you'd never catch Robert Shaw saying 'Touche'."
"The world can kick our asses tomorrow."
Really, could it get any better? Just awesome stuff!
I also hung on to every tension-filled word of the banishment scene. That was so well done! I feel like a bug on the wall watching your stories unfold; picturing what is happening is effortless because of the detail.
I was SO happy that the Impala was as good as new! I could not imagine Dean having to rebuild her again - YAY!
The 'restaurant scene' was hilarious! I loved the return to the "people think we're gay" sideline, and for Sam to play along made it that much better. You have Sam and Dean's characters down perfectly; one more thing that makes your stories such a treat!
The intervention of the pagan goddess was highly unexpected but exceptionally clever, and the lore was fascinating. WELL DONE!
Ha,ha! Needless to say, I simply savoured this wonderful fic and it deserves a place of honour in my favourites! Can't wait to see what you cull next from your brilliant imagination!
Thanks for sharing your extraordinary talent!
'Til next time,

I know I've thanked you before, but still, thanks for such long chapters.
The love the way you describe a scene, the broken glass, injuried Sam and the surrounding woods, I love that I can picture your story as I read the words.
Nice tense moment as Dean tried to find out if Sam was alive when he couldn't use his hands to check for a pulse.
I had to smile, though not because the brothers fought about the new phone, but when Sam came back to the motel, the simple way all was forgiven and right between the brothers in a matter of minutes.
The pagen goddess was a nice surprise. I'm glad that she was there to help the brothers and heal them. Plus she fixed the Impala, perfect. :)
I loved how Dean worried and tried to reassure Sam as he suffered through his nightmares.
So Sam was conscious at times too after the crash and saw his injuried brother.
What perfect ideas, glue the salt to the floor and then the way the brothers rigged the pot of herbs to dump.
Nice moment when Dean thanked Sam for taking care of him when he couldn't use his hands.
Had to smile when Sam broke the news to Dean that the goddess was naked under her cape.
Wonderful ending. I could just picture the ring incident in the resturant and than the brothers just relaxing together, because as Dean said there will always be another hunt.
Thanks again for sharing your story with us.
Until next time, take care.

So cool that the woman spirit was able to heal both brothers!
What a nice touch. :)

Awesomeness, lovely awesomeness. It was well worth the wait! I really enjoyed the blending of lore, you handled it perfectly!
Five Impalas full of happy Winchesters looking for you to give you a hug.

Yay for a happy ending!:D I very much enjoyed your story. Loopy!Dean saying that Sam's heart sounded like the Jaws theme was hilarious and downright adorable and the whole pagan goddess storyline was interesting. And YAY again for lots of cute bro moments! I will never get enough of those:)

Loved it. Just the right amount of hurt Dean, and for good measure hurt Sammy too. Short and sweet, and a goddess to boot. Loved it.

That was thoroughly enjoyable. Very clever, both the glued salt-I seriously don't know why they can't do something like that more often-and the rig for the potion at the end of the ritual. It's nice to have something on their side for once, too. Good stuff.

Wonderful chapter! I am so glad that you finished the story. As always it was excellent!
| AnickaMarie chapter 2 . 1/28/2009
Great fic! Limp Sam & Dean with each taking care of the other and believable job worked in. Also loved the bit about the ring at the restaurant, lol. And the Impala getting a happy ending was good too. There's only so much time Dean can spend fixing that car.
| JennK528 chapter 2 . 1/28/2009
Aw, that was great! Lovely Dean whumping! *g*
And no, the goddess wasn't a twist I was expecting...But if ever the boys needed some high-powered mojo on their side - it was a good time for her to show up. Thanks for fixing the Impala - I had a feeling she might take care of it, but you never know...
Too funny about Sam giving Dean's ring back in the restaurant! HEE! Oh, boys.
Another fun read - I enjoyed it very much!

good ending..loved the line "“All the ugly-ass demons and puke-inducing creatures we go up against on a daily basis, we finally run into a hot babe – a naked, hot babe - who's good with cars, no less – and I’m too freakin’ out of it to notice. It’s just not fair.” LOL!

Well what can I say, that was well worth the edge of seat bruise on my behind! It was a wonderful read and I couldn't tear myself away from the world you created here!
As always the banter between the boys was excellent and so well written! I loved Sam's fever induced dreams and how you echoed this crash with the one from season 1/2 and aslo tied in the spa-mitt, it worked really well!
The action scenes where they offed Barnes were very gripping and you kept up the tension, great stuff! I loved the lore about Berthe, it fit really well.
As you can probably tell by now I really enjoyed the fic and I hope you are planning on writing again soon. Also, I tried really hard not to read this yet as I'm supposed to be editing my next chapter so that I can post, guess I can't resist a treat either!
Take care and best wishes, Madebyme.x
