| SeeMeInTheShadows chapter 22 . 1/6
Wow that sure was a ride! An incredibly enjoyable one, I might add! I first opened this story with the idea that I would quickly skim the first chapter and jump a few chapters at a time until I found some Sam!Angst and them leave and I cannot express how glad I am that I instead read the entire thing. For such a high word count I never felt like you were letting this story drag pointlessly or overindulging in either hurt or comfort. It was really such a good amount of action and the amount of research I could tell you put into this was stunning! I love love love the concepts you played with- especially the supernatural world not being black or white. That's one thing I always felt was interesting about Sam- even in seasons two and three- where he was drinking demon blood and starting to possess more supernatural quirks himself, he always was the most sympathetic character and you did a great job at showing that here! The way you used fairy lore was interesting and it never felt like you were drowning us in information or really making the story hard to follow. And finally, to end my long ramble/gushing I just want to say that your minor OCs were really perfect- I loved Eric and Mr/Mrs J and how you used that to give him tips for Stanford because after going through the college application process myself this year (I didn't apply anywhere quite like Stanford, but still...) I found myself calling foul in the idea a kid with lots of schools and no consistent extra-currics could get into a school like that and you really made that explanation much more believable so overall fantastic job and I really enjoyed this read!

This story was amazing. The depth of the characters; the thought you put into them was just breath-taking, and I couldn't help but be completely taken in by the tiniest action.
And your supernatural elements were incredibly real, vivid, believable. The research was impressive as well. I've got no criticism to make..

I don't know if you'll even get this, obviously I hope so, but I wanted to say that I loved this story. I believed all of it, and I will now cement in my mind, as if it happened on the show, that this is exactly how Sam made the decision to go to college and how he made it possible to achieve that goal.
You are a very talented writer and I hope that you are writing somewhere and really, really hope you become inspired to once again write here again! You mentioned in a note that you didn't want to go AU, but since the show's canon has been disappointing in many respects for me since season 4, the AU stories are often the ones I like the best because they fill the void the show has left. So, if Sam and Dean ever re-enter your thoughts, we'd all be happy to read your version of how things should have/could have been!

You made me cry again. I love this chapter. I especially loved Dean's pain at the end. How he FINALLY stood up to John. I kind of feel bad for John, but I can't condone how he treats his sons.

You made me cry. I love this story, it's so amazing and emotional and just perfect.

This was an awesome story!
I love the plot, it felt new and interesting, and the characters were beautifully written. Your supernatural creatures were really interesting and it was easy to follow the story. It was a pleasure yo read, well done!

Are you still writing Supernatural fiction? (Please, please say yes!)
Another amazing story, miss. Your stories both distract me - in the best possible sense - from writing, and inspire me to write anew )

HELLO. I SHALL DROP A QUICK REVIEW BEFORE I GO LOOKING FOR THE SEQUEL. this was a brilliant piece. (: I liked it very much. (although I do think that Dean wouldn't let it show on his face if he were feeling guilty. Especially in front of Sam. He's really good at hiding his emotions behind bravado, and I believe he was able to do that when he was younger too.) but overall I loved reading this. It was lots of fun Sammy matured a lot here. :3 great job. NOW I WILL BE OFF TO HUNT THE SEQUELLLLL.

I have you to blame for not working, barely sleeping and missing my subway stop in the last days. This was a beautiful story. Magnificent narrative, great imagery, the Winchester men and the faeries so alive I was sure I'd meet them in my kitchen soon enough. You certainly have a gift, my dear. I also enjoyed getting to know you through your comments across the chapters. May I say, I am so pleased to meet you?
I know this story dates from 2009, but I hope that you still read the reviews and with them, my thanks for a wonderful time spent in your company and your world.

I'm not a big reviewer, suffice to say I loved all your stories. You are such a good writer, it's sad we haven't been blessed with anything recently. I do hope you start writing again.

I cannot express enough how blown away I am by the work/research you have put into this story. It's a wonderful story and I'm so very glad that you wrote it. It's heart wrenching in some places but it's also fitting that it's that way. This is how it really could have gone pre-series.
Thank you so much for writing this and sharing it with us- it's greatly appreciated.

Hey - it's me, again :-)
First of all: I hope you and your family are well - I'm a bit worried about not getting a reply (and I know that you're taking replies seriously). Hopefully it's "just" another thunderstorm that left your computer unconnected to the world of fanfiction!
Secondly: I apologize! I'll never find the words to describe how much joy I had reading your story. This was such a rich texture of lore and pure Winchester reality, of emotions in and out of control, of psychological finesse and action and poetic pictures - I totally loved it! In my opinion you managed to show the multiple facettes of every Winchester, giving each of them the credit he deserves, so that we were able to develop a better understanding even for John with his sharp edges.
You did the most awesome job with the fairies - the dark ones and the bright ones :-) I'm a fan of Titania anyway, and your fairy Queen reminded me of Tolkiens Galadriel, just that your Queen has so much more warmth and easiness, and she lacks that resignation. You've certainly put magic in this story! I could sense it :-)
The plot was simply perfect to lead to a nearly fatal conflict between the Winchesters and at the same time enable a deeper understanding between the brothers. It was so sad and yet so inevitable to take Dean's memories away. Such a beautiful and wise scene. Because it shows how Sam has grown up, accepting responsitility and realizing the constant pressure that Dean has to endure with John and Sam fighting like mad rams.
Everything matches perfectly, from the beginning to the end, and I'm glad you made John offer this one precious year to his sons. I agree, it's not only logical in the light of the events to come, it's necessary for my loving heart too ;-)
My deepest Kudos! I loved Hozho, but I adore this one. I'd be enchanted to read more of you, should the muse kiss you (and should RL provide you with enough time to do so)
