Here via a rec at spnstoryfinders on LJ. Very original and your execution is marvelous. I really enjoyed this, especially this:
Dean allowed his eyes to close, a soft smile spreading across his face as he listened to Sam get his geek on with Cas. This was the pain-in-the-ass little brother he knew and loved – scary smart, insatiably curious, the strange mix of scholar and soldier he'd raised.
It was also the little brother his drug-addled subconscious had conjured up to keep him company in that cell, to keep him grounded so he didn't lose it under the effects of chemicals and his captors' psychological machinations.

It's been a while since I read a good story and I'm really pleased I found yours. I found the concept of the shrinking cell really interesting, and I've totally learnt something :) Good job!

great story I really liked it
| CeCe Away chapter 1 . 7/28/2010
Excellent. I enjoyed this very much. Loved how the darts always missed Sam, seeing as how he wasn't really even there. Good one.

Wow, excellent! )

Another brilliant and fascinating story from you!;-) It kept me guessing all the way (although I must admit I suspected that Sam was a hallucination after a while), and I loved the information about the Vikings - that's fascinating! I also loved the sense of hope you infused in this story - I long for the brothers to heal their relationship and I sincerely hope that we will see that in Season 6 - one thing is for certain - we'd better get the mother of all hugs when Sam and Dean are reunited!

I absolutely love your stories! I have read two so far and have to say i'm hooked to your writing and I look forward to filling my summer of waiting for season six with your fic's. I also share your thinking about the brothers and I hope and feel they can get back that trust and relationship I fell in love with in season one, though I have two episodes of season 5 left to watch so who knows what they hold anyway sorry about the ramble and again I really love your fics.

Holy...Dude, that was GREAT!You got me SO surprised at the end! Everytime Dean got shot I was like "Huh?WTH?Sam could have jumped in front of Dean!" (yeah, which is an evil thing to say but I expected it and Sam tried and it seemed to be stupid that he wasn't able to do so).But I kept reading and man the cameras confused the hell out of me *lol*. But I liked the hurt!Dean and the general idea of the boys (Anyway, i THOUGHT it was the boys, not just Dean) captured in that hole. And then the whole Lucifer-thingy you threw into the story and I was really thrilled and a bit skeptic too I must confess. Because like Sam (or...hallucination!Sam...) I thought that that couldn't be Lucy's M.O ... BUT I kept reading and then it all turned out to Dean being the only captured one and no Lucifer and no saying-yes-to-him and jeez, I was SO surprised!
You did a GREAT job with this one!

I loved it *-* I want to hope they can get back to what they were in first season, and your fanfic is really fullfiled with hope and that's... You know, cute! DD

Great idea. Well written. Loved it how Sam turned out to be just a hallucination, how Deans drugged mind chose his brother to help him get through this. An interesting angle to look at his hopes and fears. And confused Cas is just precious ;)
| PADavis chapter 1 . 3/22/2010
That was briliant. I guessed Sam wasn't there when he reached through the bars and the guy just side stepped him but beautifully done. Loved the conversation and the hope and the firm believe they will regain the same level of trust. I'm right with you. And extra special thanks for the ketamine and drugs, and Dean's head hitting his chest, and Dean being confused and woozy ... sighs in happiness. Cas in a customs outfit. Snorts. SOUL PLANE? Now that cracked me up.

Great job on this! I started guessing that Sam wasn't there but not until he didnt stop the second dart. Love the cover too LOL

Hey Sculls! I have been saving this, and boy it was worth it for you are the Queen of Equal-Opportunity Whump to be sure. Cahined!Dean: just, *yowzah*. In fact I'm telling myself you wrote this just for me.
Total love for you grabbing that bit of canon - the hunters chasing Sam - and having them go for Dean instead, and you crafty devil you really had me mystified as to what the sitch was with Sam: ghost, Hell memory?
Love love how you juxtapose Dean's fears and anxieties with the fact he conjures up this hallucination of his brother to comfort him through it and assure him all will be well. What I love too is how hallucination!Sam is *honest* with Dean... for example he doesn't lie and say the fuglies drugged him too. Very clever, because it goes to the fact Dean so desperately wants to believe the lies have stopped. And protective too, because Dean wants things how they used to be and wants to know his brother still cares... *meep*.
But this: “I promise you they’ll get what’s coming to them – if it’s the last thing I do.” It's buried, but that's angry, vengeful Sam and maybe a tiny little suggestion that Dean still fears his brother getting lost like he did before.
The Viking cell is way cool! And I love how you have Cas copying the boys' terminology!
Nice treat in the middle of the slog, hon: thanks!

Wow. That was really good. I was faster than Dean, figured it out pretty much the minute the captor came in first. But hey, I wasn't shot full of drugs at that time, so...
I like the hope you invoked. Subtle and ... well, hopeful. Very, very lovely. And of course Dean would summon his own Sam. Whom else?
Yeah, I liked that pretty much. And it was set very nicely in s5, s4 is too depressing in my opinion and s3... well. I stay away from that as much as I can. It...depresses me, even more than s4.
Lovely, my dear.
