WOW! That. was. just. AMAZING!
I can't believe I just read the whole story in one rush. I was just looking for a longer FF which I can read everyday little by little...so I gave this one a shot an...wooosh, the end, lol. Now I have to search for a fanfic with more chapters all over again.
And I have to say...you confused me in every single chapter a little bit more. Everytime when I thought I had figured out what the h... is going on, it became a dead end and everything changed again. That's brilliant. I guess that's wha I couldn't stop reading.
At first I thought one of the Scooby gang has to be some kind of supernatural thing and I tryed(?) to find some hints in what they were doing or saying but that was a dead end, too. It seemed so surreal that that bird watcher AND HIS CAT(xD) would tumble over the brothers in the middle of nowhere because he followed them. And then there was Gracie and her crew and everything became much mor surreal. I couldn't believe that there was nothing more strange going on. But well...I guess strange things don't have to be automaticly(?) suspicious.
That's a point why I like your story so much.
At some point I really started to like that gang. Arnold and Gus! I'm totally on Arnold's side about caring over the cat. Would it be my own cat I would have followed it to the darkest placest in that house!
(Of course at some point I was SURE that Gus has to be the main villain, too. xD)
Beth and Gracie were great, too.
You've done such a great job in describing all of them in every situation. I can't say that I would have the nerve or the skills to focus everytime on each character(especially when they all are so different) and think about "what would xxx say/think/do". Like that every character became alive and after a few chapters I really thought "Aw, typical Arnold" or something like that, haha. That was great :D
AND the swear jar! xD It made this already so special story much more special! What a nice idea! And a nice running gag. I loved how Dean put money aside although Sam wasn't around to witness his swearing.
And how Sam still went on with collecting money after all the action. Poor Dean, he really swears a lot. They should make a episode of the show with a swearing-counter or something, hahaa!
I liked the background story with Charlie, too. (Yeah, there's nothing I didn't like.) What a psycho, but there must always be a bad guy. He'd hurt Sam pretty bad, ugh...nice one. Uhm...well.
When Sam recognized him as the guy hitting on him back at the motel I nearly fell from my chair. I totally forgot that one- No wonder with all that weird stuff and wondering WHO the heck is the villain there!? But afterwards I thought how could I? Why would you mention something like that when there's nothing going on with it. But on the other hand...there was Gus.
You're writing style is really nice! The switching between the characters- and not only Sam and Dean- wasn't annoying at all. I liked the short passages about the other characters and then switching back to Dean or Sam.
And your describing Sam and Deans thoughts was hilarious. Watching Sam getting annoyed by the group of idiots following him while searching for Dean. There were moments were I really laughed out loud. xD I remember him describing them and then adding "sneezing(?)" when someone actually sneezed to the list.
Did I mentioned that Sam and Dean as well were awesome? I can't complain about a thing! For my taste they were perfectly in-chara and I really enjoyed them in this story. Their jokes, their teasing, their caring. Hah...lovely.
When you mentioned Dean's 'fear' for cats I had to think about that scene in with the locker in Yellow Fever and it made everything just more funny.
Oh well...I could go on like this forever! Thank you very much for this amazing story! I love it :)
And I hope there aren't too many mistakes in my review. I'm trying my best not to let my English get too creepy D:
Thanks again :)

Ah, this was great, and unusual, for fanfiction anyway. That Myers dude really did deserve to die. Hopefully he doesn't find some way to get out of jail, and that he actually got put there to begin with. I could definitely see him going after Dean and Sam again non-stop if he found a way out...
Arnold and Gracie... Oh man. That's just... I dunno. Lol. Gracie was pretty annoying, but I loved the characters you made up. They each had their own personality and gave the story their own touch. n.n They really were idiots, though, not staying put. Ever. George, the one that jumped through the window... was a complete moron. I mean, seriously. Lol. But I guess that probably would happen in real life... People just aren't that smart, and don't pay attention to scary movies. xD
The loved the swear jar, even in this 'haunted' house Sam still collects his money. I could definitely see the boys doing this in the show; no matter how hurt or in danger they are. xD The bet didn't last very long, though, when they got back. First thing Dean wakes up to is Bobby with his hat... Lol. Didn't even know Bobby was around and he already won. xDD
Immediately hearing the 'first' Sammy tell Dean to let go, I knew that he was the right one. Sam will always be more concerned about his brother than himself or getting the bad guy. It was a very nice touch how you went about that scene like that - how Dean knew by him letting go. Dean and Sam sure got beat up a lot in this one! Normally it's one or the other, but I liked how you had it be both. In something like this it was only appropriate. It was pretty twisted of Dean to carve that W into Myer but we all know he has that side to him, especially when it comes to Sammy.
And Gus...! Love. Helpful kitty, leading the way to Dean. :D Good thing that Arnold was pretty strong, lol. That helped out on a couple of occasions... And to think, everything could have been prevented if Dean had checked them into that motel...

Really awesome story.
Your writing is incredible.
Love the way you write Sam and Dean and the close relationship the Brothers have.
You are a wonderful writer and i can't wait to read more of your stories.

"Sam watched his brother watching the cat."
Is it weird that I have a perfect mental image of their exact expressions?

Thank you !

A really great and entertaining story with the bonus of two injured Winchesters! And loved your various OC's too; had to laugh at the thought of Gracie and Arnold dating! Perfect how Sam gave Dean the money from the swear jar, apart from a couple of dollars they took from Charlie it was all Dean's money anyway and he decided to take them off to Vegas!
Loved it :)

I really enjoyed this story. I loved the use of the cat and bringing in an enemy from when the boys were younger. Great story!

Best Use of Swear Jars Ever.

You did a great job with the story! I was on the edge of my seat, but still laughing at the whole swear jar thing. And the dang cat! You did an awesome job incorporating humor and suspense. Great job!

"Sam," he gasped and pushed himself up to his knees, "check Sam." Great characterization-this is SO like Dean to do.
I'm really sorry to see this end, it was an amazing story!
I kinda hated that we didn't get to see Beth one last time. I was hoping she'd come by to see the boys or something before the end. It was really cool, though, to find out that Arnold and Gracie got together-I never would've expected that, but it was fun!
I am a little nervous that Charlie is still out there somewhere-any chance we might see a sequel one day? *looks hopeful* I am kinda glad Dean "marked" him, like he did to Sam, but I worry that it will only feed the fire of his anger against the Winchesters. I'd like to see him taken out for good.
You did a terrific job on the story, all the way around. Thanks for taking my challenge and running with it, and for coming up with such a fantastic piece of fiction. You really did a beautiful and really impressive job fitting in everything I asked for-THANK YOU! It's one of my favorite auction fics EVER! I hope you'll consider a sequel one day. I'm favoriting this one!

I LOVED the scene where both Sams are hanging from Dean's grip to keep from falling, and how he determines which is the real one:
""How'd you know which one was the right one."
Dean just shrugged. "You let go," was all he gave but it was the truth.
Sam snorted softly. "Well someone had to. We'd have all dropped if I had to wait for you to."" Awww...true. And I love that Sam cared enough to let go.
Sam's despondency over losing the swear jar made me laugh: ""You mean this old thing?"
For one long moment Sam just stared at it. Then took it from Dean with a reverence that had the older hunter starting to smile with fondness –
Until the kid deftly twisted off the lid, held it out and dead-panned, "That'll cost you a dollar."" *snickers* So cute!
Loved this too: "He decided right there and then that once they got the snap out of this house, he was burying his brother and that jar." LOL Love the tie-in to the title.

Ah, finally the flashback. I wanted to kick Kim. Stupid girl. I loved Dean busting in and kicking butt when those guys had Sammy. Sam should've known better than to ditch Dean like that when he was just trying to protect him. I can't believe that guy carved his initial into Sam's back. He's extremely lucky Dean didn't kill him.
I can't wait to see Dean take Charlie out now. Very curious as to how he ties in with the golem idea. Glad the boys will be back together soon.
| bhoney chapter 9 . 6/7/2010
I realized I'd never left an "official" review for this chapter, so here it goes:
Uh oh, the swear jar and Sam have been separated? That can't be a good sign! And another player down, huh? Very intriguing. Love the Clue reference. Hope Sam's okay!

Great story, thanks. x
