Oh so you're dipping your toe into the darkside! Well the show isn't afraid to do it so why not give it a go!
I thought to myself, well it's just a story and if it gets too much you can always stop reading. For me it's always what you don't see that's scary, as your imagination takes over. As soon as you see the 'monster' it always loses the scare factor for me so this fic is right up my alley. The darkness and creepy presence of invisible ghosts, unwanted touches that you can’t physically escape from and being treated as a 'pet' - disturbing and most definitely nightmare material.
I liked how you did the whole cat thing - again not saying it but the insinuation was clear and the impact certainly hit harder. Dean's Ghost Whisperer comment made me giggle and I really needed to giggle so that was a great placement for a little comic relief.
And then you hit hard with a emotional punch at the end with the ghosts admission that Dean is dead and that maybe Sam’s next meal will be Dean! Yikes - but I trust you when you say you don’t break if can’t mend!
Now I'm in a dilemma because can I say that I enjoyed reading this and that I'm looking forward to more? It just sounds so wrong. Catch you next time, take care, Abbi

Well, you certainly nailed creepy in this one!
In the same way that movie monsters are always scarier when you DON'T see them, I loved how you used sensory deprivation to illustrate Sam's fear and helplessness. Then the invasive touches, not being able to see what he's eating (thank you for turning my stomach with that, BTW *g*), the threats...classic psychological torture, all designed to break him.
Dark, yes, but also great writing.

You had me hooked from the first sentence. Loving this story already! You are right, unwanted, intimate touches are really creepy and on top of the beatings both physical and emotional Sam is getting it's amazing he hasn't broken already. You got Dean's desperation spot on but thank goodness Bobby was on the end of the phone line telling him to check again but from Sam's perspective. What a stoke of luck he came across the little girl and that she said Sam had also looked for her cat but not come back. Dean would have done well to phone Bobby before he entered that house, just in case, as then he would know where Dean was should something happen. Hope Sam doesn't believe the Schmidts about Dean and that the elder Winchester is on uber high alert and fully prepared for what he might find.
Looking forward to more!

Welcome to the dark side! :D
Poor Sammy! Sounds like he's been put through the wringer the past 10 days. Glad Dean saw the girl and found out about Sam going into the house. Now he can rescue Sam cause I don't believe for a minute that they killed him. :)
| Wallflowergirl chapter 1 . 12/1/2009
Yes, you're totally right - those creepy little touches are freaking me out as well as Sam! And the part about the cat was gag-inducing - poor guy! You're describing the sensory deprivation thing really convincingly. I REALLY hope Dean finds him soon :-0

No, I definitely agree. Being touched by something you can't see or touch yourself is creepy as hell. Nightmare and angst fodder galore. And the creepers you wrote here definitely fit the bill. They freak me the hell out!
Great start here. I hope Dean gets there soon to rescue his poor little brother!
Looking forward to the next chapter! Thanks for writing!

Ouch, that was cruel. I'll trust your "not breaking beyond fixing" though :D
| ephiny63 chapter 1 . 11/30/2009
I am totally gobsmacked! This is OMG so chilling and yet had me glued to each and every word.
I agree with the not wanted intimate touches and you rock! You have it perfect, the Schmidts are so creepy, though the line that got me chuckling and a perfect Dean line was
Damn Jennifer Love Hewitt and her touchy-feely ghost show. “No, scarier, meaner ones. Now go!” hehehe loved it, plus I am not a fan of the show so...
Honey btw you should venture to the darkside more often...
hugs and love

I feel so bad for Sam, but hoping that it won't take Dean to long to find Sam, now that it sounds like he is on the right trail.
Even with everything happening to Sam, I like how he is still trying to hold on, have some control, like not talk to them, while he waits for Dean to find him.
I have one cat laying on my feet and another on my arm while I'm trying to type this, but I'll forgive you for feeding Sam a dead cat.
I'm looking forward to the brother scenes while Sam heals, but first we need big brother to rescue Sam.
Thanks for sharing your story with us.

so I totally love this story, although, I have 7 cat's (5 indoor and 2 ourdoor) so Sam's dinner I did not find very pleasent. Nobody ever pick's on dogs... I have been begging everybody for a blind Sam fic, I don't suppose you will do that with him in this one? Please oh please and I really hope that Dean isn't dead, that he called Bobby and let him know where he was before going in. It's creepy but it's creepy good. It reminds me a little of the x-files episode with the peacocks. I'm assuming the people who have Sam trapped are dead so it's like dead peacocks under ground, oh so much worse. There hasn't been a lot of slave/pet Sam stories and although I don't like him being sexually abused, the torment of captivity is great so this story is right up my alley. I know Sam's not a weakling so I imagine he's been through quite a lot to get where he is now. Thanks for the great story hope there's lots and lots to come. Thanks, Nicole.

Creepy indeed! But I loved Dean coaxing information out of the little girl. And I trust that the comfort will be big enough to balance out the hurt in the end.
| TammiTam chapter 1 . 11/30/2009
AWESOME start ... don't stop there, keep going. Sheesh, this is better than envy!
| carocali chapter 1 . 11/30/2009
Dark, indeed! You and Phx - man, you're bad! But fic from you is like a cool drink in the desert, so I'll take what I can get!
So deliciously creepy and horrible. You make me cringe as you describe what's going on around Sam:
Its amazing how you can pull us right to the story with your first words.

I love this. Love, love, love. It is scary and creepy and a little oogie. I am already in love with this story. I can't wait to read more. Dark and wonderful, and if you're worried, you can write it just for me!
Five Impalas all shiny and wonderful full of happy, laughing boys in search of fluffy coffee and pie.
