What a wonderful story. I remember it from the zine. I sure hope I remembered to thank you for sharing it with us at the time. If not, here's my thank you now.
I enjoyed reading this story. I alway love to see a worried by brother Dean in action after Sam has been hurt.
I really loved this scene and Dean did it a couple of times. Once when the paramedics were first helping Sam and then again on the helicopter. Dean had to stay out of the way, but still needed Sam to know he was there for him. 'softly squeezing his brother's ankle in response. He didn't remove his hand, leaving it in place to reassure Sam he was there, or maybe it was to reassure himself...' We also know that Sam had to have been badly injured if Dean never hesitated and chose to fly with Sam to the hospital.
I liked the paramedics, because they figured out that Dean was the big brother and also helped him visit with Sam prior to the surgery.
I also liked the doctor in your story. She was nice after finding out that Dean had snuck in to see Sam before his surgery.
You did a great job writing the scenes with Dean worrying and then taking care of Sam, plus what a way to sneak Sam out of the hospital.
I enjoyed Sam's memories of their father. It is always nice when a writer shows that John and Sam did have some good times and not just remember the final fight.
Thanks again for sharing your stories with us.
I'll check back for the next chapter. (I would just go read my book, but I'm dog sitting.)

I always enjoy your stories, and I am trying to do better at reviewing, not to mention I really miss stories from before the whole angel arc started when Sam was still Sam and Dean his protective older brother. Enjoyed the first chapter greatly and can't wait for the rest.

It’s great to re-read stories like this. You go into them knowing there’s good stuff ahead.
This fic makes me yearn all over again for an on-screen hunt that takes place in the snow. The Rockies are in Vancouver’s backyard, for crying out loud. Keep your fingers crossed for Season 7.
Love Dean getting his fairy tales mixed up!
My favourite line: “…'Sides, a guy his size isn't a Sammy unless he wasn't always a guy his size." *g*
Love the concept of the watch as one of the few material possessions Sam cares about. They don't have much, and what they do have goes into hunting, but it makes sense they'd have one or two 'treasures' - valuable or not - that are symbols of what was and/or what might have been.

Great story, love the brotherly love and concern in it. Dean is such an awesome big brother here and I adore that. Poor Sam really got mangled. I sure hope he'll be okay and Dean get's the watch fixed. By the title I would think he will. Hugs, Vonnie

poor sammy i just love when he is all banged up and dean is caring for him the sentiment behind the watch is so sweet and caught me by surprise i expected it to be from jess :) making it from john was a great idea we all know dean got the impala and so many stories mention him receiving it for his 18 but think this is the first story ive read where sam received something special for his 18.
your writing as always is spot on chick looking forward to the next chapter

Love it! I'm a huge fan of season 1 stuff, I can never get enough of the boys being all brotherly, with out all the crap the later seasons dump on their relationship. Plus, hurt Sam and protective Dean for the win!
