My, you're on a roll here ;) I'd say, why not update the other stories I'd so love to read more off...but if you keep producing such gems like this, than who am I to complain :D
Absolutely loving it, though I must say that John wasn't the only one who had to swallow to stop from getting sick himself. Imagine that, you managed to write me sick ;P Well okay, I have to admit, I so know that feeling of not being able to stop throwing up so well, that my body thinks it must provide the feelings going with them ;)
Love that you're bringing John in a the big-Sammy-protecting hero this time. I've always loved him, don't really understand why some people want to write stories that make him abusing his sons, but glad to you write differently ;D
That moment with Sam finally giving in to the comfort coming from John, that was so sweet ;D
Well can't wait to see Dean's reaction to the scene he'll find in the bathroom, so hope the update will be swift ;D

I loved when Dean was drilling his dad about Sammy's health. I love it when John gets to be a loving father. I know he is portrayed as an A$$$ but he loves his boys.
Can't wait for the update.

I agree. There are way too many stories out there depicting John as a bit of an ar*sehole. This is wonderful, and it's nice to see a few of Dean's well known traits coming out in John.
Can't wait for more. Rather glad there's a second chapter to come.

Loved this. I always seen John this way. I feel he did what he had to and kinda got lost in it, yet he always had this love and protectiveness in him and very likely had moments like this with his sons. You really did an incredible job bringing out the tenderness and trust here. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Awesome story. Do I need to get your muse some Ritalin to get her back on track and help you finish your other projects too? Let me know, I might be able to dig some up. Hugs, Vonnie

Awww. Daddy Winchester! I love him! I'm so glad that Dean wasn't there when Sam got sick. Simply to see if John could rise to the occasion and help his son. Which he did. All the old instincts came back in a heartbeat. This was such a revealing and telling chapter about their lives from that time. Very well thought out and described. Wonderful story! Love you!

This is wonderful so far and I can't wait for the next part! I love how you've written John in this fic. It is really how I imagined him being...a good dad at heart who just doesn't always know what he's supposed to do.

Wonderful story, very well done. So nice to see John as a caring father and not just an autocratic dick!

*gasps and flails in fangirl glee* You know you pushed all the right buttons for me on this one! Awesome Dad!John! I physically hurt for him when he thought Sam didn't want him there (although I was pretty sure that wasn't what Sam was saying) but then he just got right in there and looked after his boy, and it made me happy! (His behaviour development from gruff to demonstrative, even while all along he was thinking about how he loved Sam but didn't know how to show it, was very realistic.) I absolutely adored their hug, and John cuddling Sam against him and distracting him so he fell asleep. And I loved Sam being embarrassed about being sick in front of his Dad, and then realising that he didn't really need to be - and feeling comforted that his dad sounded so much like Dean would in similar circumstances. And I just love how you mentioned several times that Sam was small and skinny - our big Sasquatch of a Sam makes me weak at the knees, but I love to think of him when he was small and vulnerable, and could be held by his dad (or Dean!)
And now Dean is there - I just can't wait to see his reaction! I hope John doesn't move - I think it would be lovely for Dean to see his dad being tender with Sammy.
I hope your crappy, angsty weekend hasn't become a crappy, angsty week - thanks for sharing your self-help with us :-D
I'm going to be dogging my inbox waiting for the next part...

What a lovely and awful story at the same time. Awful coz the sickness was a bit too vivid I feel sick now and don't want to go to work. Lovely because how sweet was John, nice to read a story where he was being a father rather than a hunter. Looking forward to the next chapter.

I loved John's thoughts about Dean and how he has always been there for his little brother. It was also nice how John recognized that the bond between the brothers goes both ways.
When John realized that Sam was ill, after lying in bed trying to figure out why the water was running, I loved the part where Dean had realized hours before that Sam was ill after talking to him on the phone. I had to smile as I read how Dean quized his dad about Sam and defied John's order by informing him he would be home by morning.
You did a wonderful job of writing John. So many authors refuse to remember that Dean and Sam must have been loved growing up for them to have turned out as wonderful and caring as they did. I love how John took care of Sam, vomit and all.
Though I enjoyed reading your story about John and Sam, I did miss Dean, so was glad to have him arrive at the end of your story. It will interesting to see his reaction to the scene in the bathroom.
Thanks for sharing another story with us.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

My poor Sammy! I love John taking care of Sam. And Dean knowing Sam was sick just by talking to him on the phone for a few minutes. I can't wait for Dean's reaction to finding a sick Sam and John on the bathroom floor.
I love sick Sammy, the poor boy, and big brother Dean taking care of him. Just makes me all kinds of happy. I'll have to come be with Sam next week since it will be the 1 year of my dad's passing, and will need Sammy hugs to feel better.
Can't wait for more!

I'm glad that John realized that his youngest son needed him, plus Sam needed his dad. I just hope that Dean doesn't jump to the wrong conclusion and yell at his father, who actually was doing something right for a change for his youngest son.
Plus, I have to agree with you- "I've recently developed a pretty hot-and-heavy crush on Papa Winchester." Me too :-)
Can't wait for the next chapter.

Dawwww! I love that John found his inner father! :) His awkwardness and uncertainty around Sam is both sad and endearing. Kinda made my heart clench for John when he thought Sam was telling him to leave. Definitely a heart breaking moment. Now that Dean's arrived, I cant wait to see his reaction to Sam's predicament and John going above and beyond expectations. I'm fairly sure he'll be pleasantly surprised. :)

You're like a crazy woman writing these stories. Isn't summer great. I throughly enjoyed John and his sensitive side. I would hope that somewhere along the line, that John was a father just like that while Dean and Sam were growing up. It was a nice change from the normal John being such a jerk. Looking forward to the end and the rest of the crazy things you have up your sleeve. Take care, and happy writing.
