This was a wonderful story. Thank you so much for sharing!

Awesome piece! Impala truly is the 3rd member of this family. I specially liked the part when Dean talked to her :D

Love, love, love! It's funny; everyone I've introduced Supernatural to always comments on the Impala within the first few minutes of watching the show, not realizing just *how* important she is to the story and the boys, so it's great to see her getting some love-and dishing it out, too. From John and Mary to Sam and Dean, all stubborn in their own rights; and all people with immense capacities for love (for each other and for the car).
It's fun to think that she's been in the family longer than the boys were alive (though it might have been fun to see a reference to Dean convincing John in the past to buy her; his love for his baby transcends time!) so can read them as well as they can read each other. There are some particularly wonderful turns of phrase in here, my favorites being about the Impala loving the times they're driving between towns: "Sometimes the boys are bickering, over music, over a case, over what to eat for dinner. Sometimes their silence is companionable, other times it's fueled by tension. Sometimes while one sleeps, huddled against her door, the other's guard drops and she sees clearly the stress they're under, their fears or, if she's lucky, the love that bonds them." 333
The reference to the crash and how both Sam and Dean saved her was great, as well as her helping stubborn Sam get his own medical attention and simply waiting for them to sneak out and be with her again. Really great. Such a unique type of character for a show, but the Impala is definitely a character for sure!

I love this story! I agree, the Impala really is a third member of the family and I love stories in her point of view. Keep up the great work, your writing is awesome :)

Oh, wow. This story just had everything. Every single thing I love and adore about our boys, their lives, and the Impala. Phenomenal job, hun. Very, very lovely.

Oh I loved this. She is their lady, isn't she? She is their mother, their home and their lover (I don't mean that in a sick sense) She comforts them when they are hurt or distressed, she gives them warmth and security and she is willing to listen to their frustrations, even take their abuse, if needed (see Dean smashing her trunk lid). I loved that you wrote this story from her POV, making her a loving, patient and worried participant of their family. Although loved how she appreciated everything good that was done for her and felt the love given to her, which was the reason why even at her age, she was able to give back whenever needed. Truly you described a wonderful relationship here and I can only say it is true to canon, especially after 5.22. No question, she is the third Winchester. Hugs, Vonnie

I had the story alert in my inbox this morning and have been looking forward to reading the story all day while being stuck in the library. It was well worth the wait! Best part of my day so far (your story, and the cup of coffee LOL) ;) It's a very interesting POV, I don't think I've ever read an Impala story. Very well written, I loved "her" thoughts about the past and about the accident. Of course I also loved the whumpage, can't get enough of my poor hurts Winchesters :D Thanks!

Ohhhh - ohh, wow, sweetie! I've always loved 'views' from the Impala's perspective and this was one of the best ones yet! Gorgeous, sweetie - absolutely gorgeous!
*hugs you happily!*

I loved it! Would love to see a sequel too! :)
| Pinkchick chapter 1 . 2/10/2011
This was a lovely piece. At first, I thought it would be something about their mother, but within the first few sentences I got that it was the Impala. She really has always been there for them, through good and bad. I loved this take on her point of view. Thanks so much for sharing! :) Will you be posting anything else soon?
| dreamlitnight chapter 1 . 2/10/2011
"She" is definitely the third member of the Winchester clan. That car has personality, just like her owner. lol Loved this! Wish there was a little more about the boys recovering, but that wasn't the main point was it? So, I will refrain from begging... Nicely written! Great character voicing, especially the Impala's.

It's like you read my mind! You know how I feel about that car and I adored reading this from her very special and unique perspective.
I especially enjoyed her insights on the boys relationship; the good, the bad and the ugly. And how she understands and reads their motives and body language just as well as they read each others, putting hurts aside for the sake of each other.
And I was delighted that we saw a snippet of John and Mary! Because not only is she a family member but a family car and she's seen it all! It was a joy to see a freaked John and an in labour Mary pushing their fears aside for each other and the Impala seeing where it all started.
And there were so many details that I adored; how scared she was when she saw the injured boys, how Dean's words soothed her and how relieved she felt when Sam turned the engine and she could do her part, the boys singing with the windows down and how she relaxed her hinges so that Sam fell and got medical attention – they were all yummy!
This was a treat, wrapped up with a treat with a massive bow! Thanks so much for writing and sharing this, I could read a thousand more (it would be lovely to hear her perspective when the boys were much younger, her role would be more of a babysitter I guess? And what about that toy soldier?) Until next time, take care, Abbi
