You know, stories like this kinda make you wonder if the bad things out there really do know just how much these guys need each other. Clearly, this thing was only interested in its own need, but Azazel was banking on it, as we found out. He can't have been the only one. Yes, most of the creatures they come across only want one or both of them for their own purposes, but there have got to be some nasty things out there with enough intelligence to see that one without the other leaves the remaining one desperate and frantic and determined to find and save the one taken. Things that either feed on or delight in how much anguish the guys go through when one of them is hurt or missing. I bet they exist, although they're probably a particularly bad breed of nasty.
I had to chuckle when Sam questioned Dean's choice of words after the psychic vampire was dead. Somehow I wound up reading into that a very exhausted Sam saying, "Dude, melodramatic much?" Yes, there was absolute trust there, but come on! We can't have Sam and Dean saying that in so many words! Although that had to be one freaking nasty chomp for Sam's tongue to bleed like that. Even an ordinary tongue bite hurts! Anyway, well done.

I love season 2 boys!
(Heck - I admit it - I love them anytime. But I can *wallow* in season 2 stories. And this was wallow-worthy!)

Good story! Sam really does rather attract occult attention, doesn't he? And this psychic vampire was a doozy. It's a good thing that Dean has no intention of losing another member of his family to anything. Loved the blueberry picking scene. of course Sam picks and Dean eats! How else can it be?
| Nerene chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
What a fabulous story! I loved the psychic vampire idea. Such wonderful interaction between the boys. Just proves there is more than the physical connection of being brothers, but a strong emotional bond as well. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I do love this! Your summary was pretty awesome, too!
Psychic vampire...interesting creature and NOT something I'd want to meet anyplace. *shudder* He really did enjoy munching on Sam, didn't he?
Dean threatening to kill Sam rather than let him suffer at the hands of the bad guy was pretty inspired. :D Liked that a LOT...and the fact that Sam just leaned back and trusted his brother to not hurt him. Priceless.
Great fic, hon. It's helping with the hellatus. :)

Ooh Dean's worst nightmare. Or one of them. Loved him bluffing the vamp that he'd kill Sam himself if he had to. Wonder what he'd have done if the vamp had called his bluff...?

Awesome oneshot. How lucky for Sam that Dean noticed the lack of his breatrhing sounds in the room and it woke DEan up enough to know that something was right.
Wow, a crature that fed off of Sam's psychic energy. Now that's scary to think about!
| AuthoressCrest chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
Awesome story as always hon! And poor Sam and his psychic target he apparently has tattooed onto his back. XD
| supernaturalsammy67 chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
not only was the summary INCREDIBLE! beaut use of words hun!
but oh wow! so much genius here
the description of Sam's pain- like he was having a vision! MAN!
whether the hastily scrawled "Shut up" that had signaled his slipping out to meet Sarah one evening in New York,

I really enjoyed this little oneshot. The psychic vampire thing was really interesting, and I liked it. I also enjoyed the brotherly interaction, as always.

Great story. Love Dean going into full-on big-brother mode. I especially liked the blueberry picking part. It reminds me of when I was young and we used to pick blueberries, earning a whopping .25 a basket. I think we ate more than we picked, but it's one of those childhood memories that I cherish and I thank you for bringing it back to me. Wonderful job! I look forward to reading more from you. :D
| Ash8 chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
Oh that was awesome! Of course it satisfied the limp!Sam need in me - but you always manage to weave in their relationship issues as well, which is equally satisfying, :)
Great story. Thanks. :D
| SimplyOut chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
I liked it. Those brothers' relationship is sooo dysfunctional and yet so heart warming and sweet and you captured it perfectly.
I love your weekly new stories and I don't mind getting them more often *hint hint*
Thanks SO MUCH for writing in this fandom :)
| micehell chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
Ah, that was another excellent one... and not just 'cause I liked abused!Sam. ;) But, really, second season was great for the angst, and yet had that core relationship between the guys still intact. Plus there's an almost innocence in their ignorance about what Sam's abilities mean at that point, so it's kind of like a happy interlude, as it were. *snicker* Add in the well-paced narrative and good characterization on top of it being an interesting story and you get a happy reader, so much thanks. :)

Ahhh, nice. Everything good about our boys is right here. :)
