Great story! I love that you created a friend from their past. Great suspense and build up of the tension. Loved the humor at the end too. :-)

Great story. I love the way you really capture the early years. You have an amazing ability to take me right back to the first few seasons with the voices of the boys.
thanks,

Well that was an unexpected turn of events. I was excited to see an old friend of theirs, someone with whom they could relate life on the road. But as you got into the story and began describing things, something seemed more and more off. Nothing that made me immediately suspicious of what had actually gone down, but it seemed strange the way he hadn't reasoned with his wife about the ghost situation and had completely put-down his dad's hunting even while asking Sam and Dean to do the same. It was subtle, but definitely there by the time you pulled out the big reveal.

Really, really enjoyed this story :D

This though:

He peered up at Dean with a frown. "Dude, I had him."

"Dude, he had a shovel," Dean called back. Not to mention there was the whole protective big-brother thing. "Deal with it."

Had to be my favorite part of the whole thing; typical Dean. :P :D

Great story!

Awesome, awesome, AWESOME! ...I totally agree with , liked the twist, but also that Dean was able to kick back for a little while and just have a beer with 'an old friend'. Can't understand what Shire cat was talking about, but thankfully, I don't have to :)

Anyway, as always I LOVED the ending with some brotherly banter and competition between them:

Dean blinked, scrambling to cover up the stab of pain at the reminder, and knowing Sam knew anyway. [...]

"But still," Sam pressed, his face all Oprah, "you shouldn't have had to do that."

"Yeah, well." Dean passed it off with the hitch of a shoulder. "He wasn't coming after you to pat you on the back, Sam. It's not like he left me any choice—I've got a lot more old friends than I do little brothers."

Sam gave him a look of pleased surprise—like this was news to him, the big genius?—before switching smoothly to mock innocence. "You do?"

So Dean kicked him—lovingly—in the leg.

Thanks for sharing! Best, Daniela

Good syntax and structure as always, strong character voice. I have a qualm though-you seem to have a common plot device of the ghost just telling them who committed the murder. In Supernatural, ghosts rarely have any kind of true sentience and they can't really communicate well(remember "Ashland"?). I'm also not big on the 'Sam is useless and Dean saves him from his own incompetence' thing but I'm kind of used to seeing it in fanfic by now.

I've mentioned it before, but will again, it is so nice to visit the brothers in the first season.

I had to smile when I read this line about the brothers, 'With that weird telepathy they had, untouched even by years apart.'

Of course any motel scene that includes Dean sharpening his knife as the brothers discuss a case is perfect.

I like how Dean covered Sam while he slept and also made sure his brother had enough to eat. I also like how Dean didn't talk about Jessica with Tad. It was nice how you showed Dean researching the hunt and not just Sam. Not many writers remember that Dean is smart too.

I like this line describing Dean, the worried big brother, '...the attack on Sam had sobered him, bringing out the pure hunter Sam knew he could be.'

Interesting twist in your story, Tad murdered his wife. I wondered what Tad was hiding and if it involved his wife.

I enjoyed reading your story. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I so love the brother thing.

"So Dean kicked him—lovingly—in the leg.

Awesome! :D

Tad apparently was only the tiniest smidge like Sam in his desire for 'normal'; more crazy than he thought his father was. :(

Too bad the guy had to go and kill his wife; but if she hadn't haunted him and made him to call in our boys, he'd have gotten away with it. Very sad. Glad she was satisfied with the way they handled the situation. :)

Really enjoyed it. :)

Loved this and really wished it had been an actual episode. Had to google buttermilk biscuits as a biscuit to us is what you call a cookie - a buttermilk biscuit is what we call a scone so can imagine Sam enjoying them with jam! Good plot, a friend from the past with a little knowledge of what is out there, due to his father being a hunter, contacting the boys for help with an angry spirit. Spot on that Sam would be the one to feel the case was jacked and there was more to it than met the eye due to his uneasy feeling. And believable that Dean would think Tad a friend to them both but realised different when Sam said he had just been the tagalong little brother. Good twist to the tale, at first I thought the spirit was Tad's father as he had died and they were not on good terms but loved the twist that it was Sherry his wife, whom he had murdered and wanted revenge. Perfect that Sam stopped Tad salting and burning his dead wife after he had whacked Dean one over the head and liked too that they let natural justice be dealt with calling the police. I'm guessing Sherry can now rest in peace now that Tad has got his just desserts! Great ending, just so Winchester - "Yeah, well." Dean passed it off with the hitch of a shoulder. "He wasn't coming after you to pat you on the back, Sam. It's not like he left me any choice—I've got a lot more old friends than I do little brothers."

Sam gave him a look of pleased surprise—like this was news to him, the big genius?—before switching smoothly to mock innocence. "You do?"

So Dean kicked him—lovingly—in the leg.

A really great read, thanks.

Sorry I'm a little late with this, but I've been away on a long weekend. But boy, did I enjoy the hell out of this.

Season 1 fics will probably remain my very favourite and you really capture the essence of the season so well. With the boys getting to know each other again, refining their rhythm as partners, Sam's grief over Jess and Dean's unwavering support. And to top it all off, you cram in a case that hits a nerve with both brothers.

I like the idea of a old friend making contact with the boys, seeking help, knowing about hunting but not knowing the finer details. And it was a nice touch that Sam sensed the case was off, that it was somehow linked to Tad. I do miss the days of physic, spider sense Sam.

Nice twist in the tale with Sherry being a friendly ghost. It's not something we often see but I enjoyed the reversal of roles, where it was human that was evil. The shows likes to play with these shades of grey and the crossing of boundaries and you do it so well in your fics.

This was a joy of a read, as always! I really don't think you could ever write something that I don't enjoy! Thanks so much for sharing, take care, Abbi
