Yikes! Poor Dean, as if the venom wasn't wreaking enough hell on his body, it literally played hell on his mind. Love how Sam is still in a geek mindset even when he's worried about Dean and on the verge of a full on mother hen routine that rivals his big brother's. The picture of the snake was a brilliant idea.
Loved it, Sculls!

Very good story, I love the idea of a snake bite somewhere in a dessert and the visitors Dean gets while on the brink of death.
Also, Sam's very well portrayed – not too much worry and schmoop, some banter in between.
Good job! Thanks for sharing!

Well, heck, this was another story I found unread in my Inbox. So very sorry I missed it because it was darn good. No, not just darn good; it was fantastic! I'm glad I finally caught up with it.

You are a gifted writer. You love both boys and understand them, and that's clear through your writing. I loved that Dean was hallucinating (or was he?) his worst fears. Alastair, Ruby, and Lucifer fit perfectly into this, especially since you placed the setting of the story in season 5. I loved that the scenes were short, portraying what both brothers were seeing. Thank you so much for this great piece. Great brother stuff and hurt/comfort.
One small nitpick: there was a word here and there that was missing from a couple of sentences.
Besides that, great job! Thanks so much for sharing!

This was just awesome. I loved every single word, every moment. It was a perfect treat tonight! (Yes, I am a little behind on everything, chock it up to the missing year of 2010) It was lovely to return to Arizona (lived there for years) and nice to have the brothers together as well.

Your one-shots are the only ones I read! The way you portray Sam and Dean is very true to character! Can't wait to read more!

I'm not exactly reviewing this particular story-I just wanted to let you know that I've read all of your stories, and have thoroughly enjoyed them! I hope that you continue writing; you definitely have talent.

Not usually my cup of tea (the Dean h/c) but because it was you, I had to read it! Loved that Sam was smart enough to take a picture of the snake. That's the boy we know and love!
I like the battle in Dean's head with Luci and the gang trying to bait Dean into thinking that Sam would say yes. And I love that Dean stuck up for Sam. I miss that.
Thanks, as always, for sharing with the class! Feel free to keep posting stories!

Oooh, snake bite! I love that (big surprise) and loved this fic - not a big surprise because, hon, you just rock. Love Sam's determined drive, and the revelations of each scenes with R, A, and Luci. Beautifully done.

good story. Thanks for whumping Dean.

Finally...finally got to play catch up and I have to say I REALLY enjoyed this. It was so good. Nice touch with the beasties in Dean's head. Real or imaginary, it was very creepy. Awesome!

I'm going with imaginary because Ruby stays dead in my world. How I loathed that character and, I'm sorry Jared, bad actress.
You know though, I've always thought something like this should be posted in maternity war nurseries, just to prepare ya-

Man, snake-bit hallucinations really did a trick on Dean. I really enjoyed the spin you put on this, bringing in all the baddies to torment him. Funny Lucifer was the snake bit as well. Nice writing.
| Madebyme chapter 1 . 9/28/2010
What a thrilling read! You really know how to keep your readers entertained and on the edge of their seats.
I loved Dean's nonchalance here, trying to convince Sam and maybe himself that first it's a dry bite and then later that everything will be fine - like it's not a big deal to bitten by a rattle snake! His humour and 'game face' evident throughout his conversations with Sam was so very Dean.
Sam was spot on here and I really enjoyed seeing his geekiness and book smarts come to light. Knowing to take a picture of the snake, of the different bites and poisons released. And it nice to see his caring side too, giving Dean a blanket and eventually a sippy cup! Lovely touches.
Neat twist with Dean being visited by Ruby, Alistair and Lucifer. At first seemingly appearing as hallucinations caused by the venom but then you twisted it into becoming something more sinister. Were some elements real? We know that Lucifer certainly has that kind of power and I really liked that open ended quality to the story, the possibilities of what if? Very creative and befitting of the show.
I just ate this up! Now that you guys have season 6 I'm back on spoiler watch again and they're really aren't a lot of fics around that I can read so thank you for this! Have you and Harrigan discussed a joint project? I really think you should open up some negotiations, you could really do some serious fic writing together! Take care, Abbi
