Reviews for Never Be The Same
klu chapter 25 . 5/16/2014
It's a Friday and today at 5am, I finished reading this SERIES (not just this story), which I started on Monday of this same week. I am sorry that I didn't stop to leave more reviews - because I really should have. But, I was just too wrapped up in everything to slow down long enough to stop and type.

First off, your character of Addy is complex and one that I found genuinely compelling. Her backstory and similarities to Dean - as well as the differences - in her personality and upbringing - made her a unique love interest for him. I think that the way she has managed to stay in her son's life and has regrets that she didn't allow Dean that same opportunity (yet still told him stories about Dean) shows a lot about her values and morals. She is multi-dimensional and while in many aspects is very mature, her quick-temper and lack of ever being an any kind of 'real' long-term relationship, makes her very immature for her age, and that is evidenced throughout the entire series. Again, this is perfect for Dean, because he is the same, they only ever had each other and don't really now how to properly communicate... I so many times wanted to yell at them "you need a damn relationship counselor! because you're both so quick-tempered and irrational!"

The way Addy interacted with Toby (who started to become more than a 'cute kid' and a solid character in his own right as the series progressed) showed that she has patience and grace befitting a woman who was destined to manage a Winchester. I loved how that was increasingly apparent when dealing with him after he learned the truth of his parentage and again as he got to be a 'terrible teen' (you even showed her using those skills from a young age herself in several flashback-dealings with John), but she couldn't seem to tap and master those same internal resources when dealing with Dean... :)

This story had a lot of fun Hunt-specific fun in it. I really liked how you first used the vamps to reconnect Dean and Addy, then the potential breaking Apocalyptic Seals to bring the brothers to Kidder. The vamp Hunt was well done. Addy's beating like all the fighting/beatings/torture in your writing) was brutal and the actions was easy to follow, visually 'available' to the reader, but not grotesquely graphic, if that makes sense.

Toby's abduction and the opportunity it gave Addy to tell Dean that he was the boy's father, as well as the need to bring Bobby into the storyline was very well placed in the over-all arc for the series. I did like the demon-vamp 'bad-guy combo' and the fact that Addy met Meg in the local market was a very cool twist. I'm not sure that her needing a car at all, let alone a repair was very realistic, since she can just 'pop in' (with vamp-boy in tow) wherever she wants, plus as a demon, she'd just steal one if hers broke down... but the idea that she used it to blend in and maybe in a small town everyone's cars are more recognized... So I didn't look too terribly hard at that plot-point.
The only thing that stood out as a glaring concern for me was even if Cas did the rib-sigil writing on Toby, he still lived at the same house, went to the same school and didn't alter his lifestyle (other than not taking the bus) after them getting him back. So even if Meg did 'disappear', Lucifer could have sent another minion after him rather easily to complete the ritual... And since there didn't seem to be a need for any specific day, just 'dawn' at the place of his birth, it seemed really sloppy that even though Toby's captors weren't keeping him at the convent, that while everyone was looking for him, they didn't keep at least one of them watching the convent, thinking that eventually the demons would show up there with the boy, just before dawn to do their ceremony... It was never made clear if the whole 'ritual' was just a farce in the first place, and the terrible twosome just took him to mess with Addy (because Rene hated her) and/or the Winchesters (because Meg hated them).

So its Meg who's got him huh? Interesting! I think this is the first s5 fic i've read. First spn fic in a long time apart from one I read the other day. I'm not really into romance fics either because the ones that aren't AU just end up being cheesy but this works. I just can't see Dean being so hands on with someone he loves so freely in front of Sam and co. But that may just be me.


Apart from all that, its pretty good so far. I'm trying to pace myself lol but I should be done soon.
