Great story mate. I really enjoyed how it worked up to the pilot episode, and beyond.
Fantastic job as always.

I definitely enjoyed this. Loved how you worked Dean into it. :D My boy had to be there in some form to take care of his little brother. Very clever. :D
It was awesome that he actually showed up, too! Leaving the skin mag as a teaser was soooo Dean.
And this was set right before the pilot. Jess didn't say how soon Halloween was, but she did mention it so it wouldn't be too far away. :D
Very nicely done. :)

What a thrilling and captivating read - I really don't know where to start! Not only did you stick to the prompt but you added Dean in a believable and clever way, while also tying in an awesome MOTW and weaving the whole thing into canon! You executed this exceptionally – you must be exhausted!
You know me and my Sam and Jess fascination and I loved seeing glimpses into their everyday life and walks in the parks, I really appreciated that and how they made the decision to move in together there. Lovely touch, such a minute detail but they're the ones I love.
I'm addicted to the way you paint Jess, how some of her characteristics are echoed in Dean; the fierce protectiveness, the worry, humour and her sharp and quick remarks. I never tire of reading your interpretation of her and I loved her reaction to the Busty Asian Beauties mag and that Halloween costume comment was both humorous and heart breaking all at the same time!
Weaving Dean into Sam's subconscious worked really well, having him nudge Sam into finding a way to save himself, pointing him in the right direction. It really spoke a lot about their relationship and how Sam relies on his brother to have his back even even though they're separated. And the skin mag was the perfect choice, Sam knowing Dean was there even though he didn't see him, I loved that detail. The different POVS worked really well too, seeing Dean and Pastor Jim work together behind the scenes to kill the skinwalker.
You did a wonderful job weaving together all your research with the skinwalker (which was fascinating and I agree the prayer did meld with Sam's admissions in HOTH) with canon and Azazel's plan. I really enjoyed the meeting between Brady and Azazel and that gut wrenching order being issued. I've never come across that scene before in a fic and I found it quite fascinating, you did a awesome job with it and even though I knew the order was coming, it was still chilling.
I've been looking forward to reading this and it didn't disappoint, you crammed in so much and it was thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. So, what's next on your writing list? Not that I'm pushing you or anything, expect that I guess I am, I'm just selfish like that! Catch you again soon, take care, Abbi

That was great ! I I liked seeing Sam and jess's relationship. Usually would not read something with this description but since You wrote it I knew it had to be great... I always love all your stories!

I liked how you kept with cannon and had Dean in the story but not really having the brothers together.
Also a loose tie was neatly tied up. I rather it had been the demon killing Jess but with them changing cannon...your version works.
Nice story and I liked how Sam figured it out with a little help from a friend.

I thought Witchery Way pertained to witch craft... Nice twist.
Thanks for posting.

Simply amazing story. Never read something like this before. The witch was really tricky but Sam defeated him. Great. The most awesome part was...Sam still needs his brothers presence and Dean can't leave his little brother alone. Love it, simple awesam :)

Enjoyed the story. I'm not usually interested in Sam/Jess stories but the way this one was written was great. Dean was there and it was still about the Supernatural world.

As usual with you, a very good job. Liked going back to first season Sam and Dean and having Dean with Sam in his mind and in person was nicely done. Sad to know what is coming at the end but it was a good way to lead to it.

Another awesome story Sculls! I loved that you had Dean there in Sam's Subconscious, guiding him to the truth and keeping him grounded. Wonderful!

Hi Scullspeare, I was thrilled to see an alert in my mailbox for your new story. Thanks a lot for this lengthy one-shot, I loved the scenes between Sam and Jess, they were a great couple. Great lead up to the pilot, it did made me realise how much I miss the first seasons, not a fan of the whole Apocalypse story.

Excellent story, but I didn't expect anything less from you. The research you put into this story is awesome. I love the Prayer, it is beautiful and you are right, it does fit well into canon. The skin walker was fascinating and I really loved the whole story line. It was awesome to see Jess worried and supportive by Sam's side, at the same time as you showed some very believable glances into their every day life. Walks in the park, kissing, going to class, Jess being a big sister, the upcoming Halloween party - I really loved you implementing that one, it gave a time frame to the story. The supernatural illness, the way it came on so suddenly and symptoms of it were very scary. That one of the symptoms was hallucinations and it was Dean, who Sam saw, it was brilliant and absolutely believable. It showed their closeness but also Sam's need for his brother and was absolutely in line with what Dean would have done, if he would have been there in reality. Loved making Dean really be there and Sam realizing it through the magazine. So Dean to leave that one. I did like Jess' reaction to it a lot. And Dean taking care of the walker, talking to Pastor Jim and having been in contact with the Navajo shaman brought things together. And then the YED stepping in, contacting Brady, it gave a reason, why they killed Jess the way they did, when they did. I also loved the way Sam explained the nightmare he had about Jess, it makes so much sense that he would think that it was a melting of what he knows about his mother's death. Over all you made this very believable, yet kept it so intense and angsty that it was just perfect, at least in my eyes. Oh, and as a last note, the bone powder and it's effect really reminded me of voodoo - paralyzing effects, heart stopping an all that. I know they are not using bone powder and I don't know if I believe all the stories you hear, but it sure sounds a lot like it.
I hope you will get time to write more, I miss your stories, but I enjoy every one of them, when you post. Hugs, Vonnie
