' It had taken college to teach him that not all siblings were like Dean. '
College? wow, that was so long ! Most people would notice at least in High School. (Huh, I wish there's fic about something like that. About Sam find out not all Siblings are caring or loving or protective like the Winchester brothers.)
Protect and get protected... that was Great !

I enjoyed this story when I read it this morning and hope you keep writing.

I really like how this one played out. Seeing Sam's views on Dean and their life and the time he just left at Stanford put a new spin on things, and the backflash to when they were kids showed how little has changed despite the passing of the years. You were able to fit so much into this one. It's great.

Another great story.

Liked that hunting was really like riding a bicycle.
Loved the graveyard was coming to un-dead life.
The vision of Sam sinking in this 'grave' with all the hands reaching for him is super spooky.
Liked Dean using a demanding voice, like Dad's.
Loved every bit of it. This would be fantastic as a real episode!

I like the introspective feel of this piece, with the zombies only a setting for showing Sam's memories and all the things he's finally starting to realize. It's a very good first season Fic. And to think I still have two more until I'm up to date. :D
P.S. August meant the triple S: sun, sand and sea, but unfortunately also no internet for awhile. But I'm starting my usual work program, so you'll be seeing me more frequently. :)

Aw. For some reason, I like it when a fic starts out with "The sleek black car..." :D
Also love the whole Sammy getting back into hunting and realizing how special his brother is. That makes both brothers special, but it took the separation of college for Sam to realize.
Very scary fic. I shuddered several times. Zombies are yucky! And getting that stuff in your mouth! OMG
Really well done. :)

What a nightmare that must be, to be not only buried alive but being pulled under by dead people! lol, awesome story, mate, a job well done!

Dean cocked his head. "You don't remember? Complained all the way to the car about leavin' your purification stuff behind, then wanted to take a bubble bath instead of a shower." Dean's grin glimmered, momentarily real and undimmed.
Sam glowered back. He had no idea how much of that was true and probably never would; Dean was just as likely to make up a story to hide the fact he'd had to carry Sam back and clean him up. As if he hadn't grown up doing stuff like that for Sam.
It had taken college to teach him that not all siblings were like Dean.
Ces quelques lignes sont un bijou dans une passionnante histoire où, encore une fois, tu crées des parallèles irrésistibles, cette fois-ci entre le présent et le passé. Merci!

This is such a good story. The zombies are really creepy and Dean is still the most over achieving big brother ever. I especially liked how Sam remembers that Dean always helped him first.

I really loved this story!
The part where Sam was being pulled under by the Zombies was so exciting! Great job! I could *see* it happening even though I was reading words. (does that make sense?)
Loved the flashback with the well too. It made the story much more rich!
Thanks for sharing! I read it over like 3 or 4 times now.

Making me all nostalgic for season 1 again!
Loved the section where Sam was 'drowning' in zombies! I was gasping for breath with him! And there are some lovely revelatory moments too, such as Sam suddenly realising that maybe Dean didn't have it that easy while he was away at Stanford.
I like the well story too. Maybe you could write that one too? (Hint.)

For me this fic was perfection and just what I was craving! I loved how you blended an exciting hunt with the warmth of boys relationship.
Neat job with the parallels between drowning in the well and the graveyard, seeing how far the boys have come and how maybe the time apart at Stanford has allowed Sam to really 'see' his brother and appreciate what a rare bond they share. I really appreciated that aspect of the fic.
I think it was refreshing and exciting seeing a glimpse of a weechester moment here at the well, you captured the boys perfectly at this age, Sam's innocence and Dean's heart shining through. It was a short but powerful scene and I'd love to see more of the boys at this age from you, you did an awesome job.
All in all there wasn't a single part that I didn't adore and as usual you've left me wanting more! Catch you again next week, take care, Abbi

What a wonderful story.
I have always believed that Sam did miss Dean, so this thought from Sam was perfect. 'Sam found himself wistful not for the first time over how much he'd missed his brother at school. You didn't grow up that in-sync with someone and then suddenly go it alone for years without feeling seriously handicapped'
What a tense moment when Sam was being buried alive. I love how Dean was there for his little brother. (though where else would he be :) I was surprised when Dean was almost buried after helping Sam out. Nice moment when Sam remembered falling into the well as a child and Dean rescuing him. I love how the brothers were there for each other in this story.
I was glad that Trent was killed by the zombies and Dean didn't have to stop him.
The final scene in the motel and Sam's thoughts about Dean were perfect. I had to smile when I read it. 'Nobody considered their sibling their best friend, knew they'd give their life for them, worried and cared for and loved them like Dean did him. Sam had always felt the same way. But it was important now that Dean knew Sam got it, too.'
Thanks for the smile and for sharing another story with us.
Until next time, take care.

I want to see something like this on the show, a bit more...life threatening kind of thing were they get covered in dirt, mud, water logged - generally dirty.
