Oh wow! I was all set to go to the next chapter, heart in my throat, but it was the end! I was so caught up, I forgot it was a one shot. That's how great it was. So so great in lots of different ways. But what really got me was Sam's revelation about not wanting to hunt. Ahhhh, so heartbreaking.
Yeah, more of the awesome. Congrats! xo

I liked this one. Very little has been done with how Sam and Dean were trained. It felt fresh and unique. I did feel it ended a little abruptly but all loose ends were tied so that was okay. Good job.

Love it all. Especially love the possibility that Sam is the one who came up with the idea for rocksalt rifles originally.

Poor Sammy! Ah, that was great. You really have a gift!

It is a good thing that Dean finally did come up with packing up shotgun shells with salt. Those work so well in the series.

..."No," he whispers like he's about to spill his worse sin. "Hunting. I don't want to do this."...
And can you blame the poor boy. Sammy is so damaged here its a miracle he survived further hunts, further pain, further loss of self, before he made his incredibly brave decision to escape and go to Standford. And yikes girl did you put our young but feisty Sammy here through a whole range of pain that his daddy couldn't anticipate or spare him from. Loved your Dean and his willingness to take the hits for his baby brother. Great writing as always.

Good fic. Poor Sammy, yikes! Getting impaled like that would really, really hurt. John and Dean came through though. Keep up the great work!

This is just...so...wow.
I actually had to wait awhile before reviewing, because I wanted to find the best words to leave behind as a token of my gratitude for sharing this story. I haven't managed to find them. But I do love this story.
I can't imagine growing up in a life like that; and I love the subtle details, like how Dean places Sam between him and his dad. So Dean it's scary.
And especially poignant is the final line: But it turns out this hunt must have scared Dad too, because it's a long time before we take Sammy out on any more hunts.
I've never really thought about John's thought process in training his sons (I'm just now getting in to it, and I haven't "met" John on screen yet in my defense). Honestly, I'm just the slightest bit tiffed that he would raise his sons like that. But you do an excellent job of exploring his own brand of love for his sons in so few words. Bravo!
Well...at this point I believe I'm simply babbling; probably a combination of too much caffeine and an unhealthy adoration of this story. Tata for now! :)

Good job with your first attempt at first person! They're tricky - some work and some don't, but you did a great job, and it's a great hunt story!

Nothing like hurt Sam and his protective family so I adored this!

Terrifyingly good story.

AWWWWW Poor Sammy; I don't blame him for not wanting to hunt after that. :(
I really, really loved this story. I always have a spot for young/teen boys, hunting with John stories, but this was especially great.
I loved how you handled the boys and kept them in character, even at that young of an age.
Wonderful story! :)

This was an excellent story and would make a great episode for the show to properly explain how hunting made Sam feel. It was a gruesome hunt for anyone let alone a mere ten year old.
Cheers hon. Thoroughly entertaining.

AHH! This story is excellent. I loved every second of it. Poor Sammy. Poor Dean! I think the complexness of Dean's relationship with John is there as is the love for his brother. You did a beautiful job. Spooky and heartfelt.
Thanks for sharing!
