You know I completely agree with you, there aren't that many awesome John fics around, that's why when I find one I always know I'm going to enjoy it.
I think you did a great job with John as he recognises his failures, making sure that he's there for Sam now when he's sick. It was so nice to see the softer fatherly side of his character shine through.
I love the line about Mary knowing that Sam was different to Dean and John needed to be gentle, it was such a small snippet but it really stood out for me.
I'm looking forward to more now that Dean's back. Take care, Abbi

Awwwww, THIS. I love it! Poor miserable sick Sammy. I love that John is the one there to take care of him, and I also love that there's gonna be more because I didn't want it to end:) Lovely job!

What a totally awesome story. I loved how Dean knew before he even left that Sam was getting sick. I couldn't help but grin when he actually gave John the third degree over the phone.
But you know what my favorite part of the stroy was...John taking care of Sammy. He was so tender with the kid for a change. How wonderful to see him telling Sam that he shouldn't be embarrassed, that a stomach virus could even kick his ass. And just the thought of John leaning against those pillows with Sam tucked to his side and Sam's head resting on his chest...I must say I absolutely loved that. I kinda hated to see Dean get back because I want more of John and Sammy!

AAWWWWW That was sweet. I'm really curious to see what Dean's going to do when he finds out that his precious little brother was sick just like he said he was. I hope he's not too hard on John cause John was really good with a very sick Sammy. I cannot believe I'm sticking up for John since John was never my favorite character. However he was really awesome in this. Poor little Sammy is so sick. Those stomach bugs are like the worst things ever. I loved how at forst Sammy was trying to hide the sounds of his sickness by running the water in both the sink and the shower. Bless the babie's heart. Anyway I'm pretty excited to see what Dean does so I'm waiting for the update. One little question and please don't take this the wrong way. I'm dying to know what happens in another one of your stories. Are you going to update "Zepp" pretty soon too? I love that one!

Really girl, that's totally awesome! I also adore John and seeing him so caring and emotional is just perfect. I think you got him just right, hesitant at first, not knowing what to do and if Sam would really want his help. But in the end I think he did a great job as a dad here. :)
And this one: "...and thinking Bobby Singer was full of shit when he had predicted that Sam would one day be bigger than John and Dean." that was just hilarious.
I certainly enjoyed it, made me smile! Can't wait to see what Deans reaction will be with finding them curled around each other on the bathroom floor.
And don't worry, even though I'm dying to read more on your other stories, I agree with you that you have to listen to your muse. :)

Perfect start to this story. You have John and Sam's relationship spot on. Could see how John wasn't comfortable when he first realised Sam was sick as the role of carer was alien to him as Dean was always there to tend to his youngest. Loved though how John relaxed into the parent role, comforting Sam as he continued to throw up, and Sam, thoroughly miserable, overcame his embarrassment at being sick in front of his father and leaned into his comfort. Both of them needed this so much. Sam must be sick to not have woken at the sound of the Impala but not surprised John did. It will be interesting to see if Dean takes over or if John will want to stay where he is, but think both will be guided by Sam's reactions. Just hope it is only a stomach bug Sam has and not something worse.
Loving this story and looking forward to the final part.

Loved it! So few caring John stories out there, this was a gem to read! Can't wait for the second part!
| Lilithakaducky chapter 1 . 7/12/2011
Like you I adore awesome John. Besides, so much was unresolved between Sam and him in the series. Sam doesn't get many bonding moments outside of those with Dean. Great to find stories like yours. Thanks for this:-)

Omgosh! I thought this was a one-shot, so when I got to the end I was like... o.o Then I read the note and everything was all better... well, almost all better. I think I just wore out the F5 button. Ah well, it should be use to me abusing it.
This was great. There's not enough fics out there that show off John's paternal side. It's tucked away under all those gruff hunter instincts, but still there.
And about the first author note, the part about writing a new 'one-shot' while you still have other stories to update. Well, while I do look forward to those updates, I have to say, as long as you're writing, I'm happy! 3

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.
| skag trendy chapter 1 . 7/12/2011
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
