Can't believe I missed the alert for this story and have only just found it, still better late to the party than not at all!
Great story, awesome monster and Dean just like St George and slaying the dragon. As usual, awesome injured Sam and an added bonus, both boys covered in foul-smelling goop, thank goodness Bobby gave them those protective rings! Never guessed they were hunting in a landfill site, great you springing that on us at the end, thought they were in some revolting swamp! Guess Dean parked his baby a good little way from it!
A really entertaining read Karen, loved it :)

Sorry for the late review, was pretty busy and couldn't read stories for some time. But I'm back and loving every word you write. Great scenery, totally creepy and I was almost hurling as well. Loved the fact that the creature is a dragon. And Dean's just the knight in shining armor coming for the rescue with his sword. :) Lovin this, amazing work as always!

I loved the opening description of the surroundings as Dean searched for Sam. It was very dark and creepy.
You did a great job writing Dean's voice. I could just imagine him taunting the creature while searching for Sam. What a nice surprise as I wasn't expecting a dragon and had to smile at Dean's thought, 'Didn't they only frolic in the autumn mist by the sea or some shit.'
Wonderful fight scene between Dean and the dragon. The dragon may have thought it was smart going after Sam. It didn't know that is should never make big brother mad by injuring Sam.
You were on a roll with tense scenes in your story. Sam tied to the tree, sinking in the goo and Dean jumping in to rescue his brother. I do need to remember to breathe while reading...
I loved the conversation and scenes with Dean and Sam. You know Dean is worried about his little brother if he doesn't complain about the seats getting dirty. I had to smile when Dean locked the car door after Sam was safe in the back. '...he pressed the latch down, locking the door. He didn't need Sam falling out. Losing his brother again so soon wasn't an option. Losing him again ever.'
Thanks for sharing your wonderful story with us.
I really enjoyed reading it.
Until next time, take care.

Poor Sammy having to go through the attack with the Dragon, being tired to a tree, then being thrown into a pool of slime. He's not having a good day at all poor guy, on top of all of that he had to go through the pain of Dean fixing his leg. Dean would never give up on looking and protecting Sammy, that is what he lives for.

Loved the story! Very fun read. :) The brotherly dynamic that you capture so perfectly is always a joy to read. Also, I quite enjoyed the dragon and the fact that you addressed the garbage issue. Nicely done!

That was awesome and really gruesome and creepy! Lol I laughed at the end when it said they were at the landfill! Hahaha! Dean's taunts were hilarious and completely in character. I just loved this. And the Dr. Suess quotes added to the creep factor for some reason. Man, I love your writing. Thank you so much for this. What a joy to read. Write more please! *hugggggs*

This was another wonderful story! So glad to see you'd posted again. This time in order: Though I've read the 'I'm coming' line from Dean many times before,it was so creepy to follow the description of the old fridge. You always set up the situation/visuals soooo well:"What was only twenty minutes ago now felt like a lifetime as Dean followed the drag marks left behind by his brother's boots. "Sammy," Dean breathed as he rounded the haul of an old refrigerator, a mangled, dead animal rotting inside. "Hang on, man, I'm coming for you." (Yes!)
Not only do you add visuals, but you add sounds and smells too. I scrunched up my nose as I read.
"That all you got, Puff?" he sneered. And ... "Let's rock this out," Dean provoked, twirling the sword in his hand as he peered straight into the white of the dragon's eyes. "I spit fire too, bitch." (Oh yeah!)
Actually, looking back over it, if I were to past the rest of my favorite lines, I'd have to past the whole story. But of course, who wouldn't love, "Geez…" He took a few breaths, waiting a second for his legs to adjust to the extra weight. "Spoiled little brothers," Dean huffed, heading to the Impala, "on the next Oprah Winfrey show."
Thanks so much for writing and taking the time to post this story!

Karen, you are a Goddess, I hope you know that. You really truly move me to my very soul with your absolutely beautiful words. I am always in awe of the amazing gift you have, how you make the story so descriptive and moving every time! I feel the emotions that they feel, and was on the edge of my seat in terror and fear waiting with Dean to send what's around the next corner. Your pieces of fiction inspire and delight me and I'm so grateful to you for that.

Oh my gosh, so much fun, Dean, acting every bit as a knight going after the fair damsel tied to the tree as dragon bait. And your descriptions, esp. that dragon, are just awesome. Swords, enchanted rings, foul quicksand swamps, near drowning, all in a landfill.
Karen, you rock.
| Madebyme chapter 1 . 7/25/2012
What an awesome fic!
I loved the detailed descriptions and imagery of the landfill you created and I liked the idea of a dragon making it its home and the message that depicts about waste.
And the boys, oh the boys, they shine so well through your writing!
Thanks so much for sharing. Take care, :)

Fantastic H/C story and what a monster! Love Dean doing his St George routine and slaying the dragon. Wonderful imagery.
