Too cute! Sammy always needs his brother there to take care of him...even if he's too stubborn to admit it! Awesome job!

Great story. Thank you.

One of the reasons I really enjoy this fic is the real likely picture no one ever shows of Sam going to Stanford and having money trouble. Plus big brother Dean is awesome.

I actually read this back when you posted it and then bookmarked it to review later, but it got buried in my bookmarks, sorry :P Clearly I have WAY too many Supernatural stories bookmarked. :P
But anyway, I really loved this one-shot :)
"Dean laughed. "Such crude gestures..." he playfully admonished as he once again reached for his mug of soup. "Who raised you anyway?"
"A poker player," Sam answered hoarsely and then swallowed against his sore throat before smiling proudly.
Dean quirked a smile of his own; always feeling amused and uncharacteristically sappy when Sam said such simple things that made him want to cry like a freakin' girl."
Especially just made it for me; it was such a wonderful combination of humor and brotherly sweetness. I got caught between laughing and going "AWWW" and ended up making an some odd noise in between :P
Loved this one! :D

Loved the descriptions of the other players around the table ;)
And loved the Dean/Sammy interaction, the last part nearly brought tears to my eyes...

This story is simply amazing! Amazing, amazing, amazing! I am in love with it! It's so well written in every aspect. The plot is great as always, the dynamic between the brothers and their talks, and their actions are perfectly described. I was so anxious while reading it and I wish something like this really happened in the series, the story fits perfectly in the time chronology. Thank you so, so much for writing it and for sharing it with us. It's really amazing story. You should become a writer

I love stories about Sam and Dean during Sam's time at Stanford.
| sandycub chapter 1 . 8/1/2012
This was just so good! Loved Sam finding out that sometimes things just aren't what they seem but most of all love Dean jumping right in and taking care of Sam! And the parts where Dean pretty much was "screw Dad - your home is with me" were absolutely perfect!

More of awesome big brother from Dean. I always thought that it was extreme for John to tell Sam that if he walked out the door that he was to never come back. Of course it seems when it comes to concern for welfare for his boys, that fear comes in and I get really uncomfortable at some John bashing stories. This was done really well and I like the fact that you have Dean saying that he would never say those words to his little brother when we know his does at that showdown in the room and Sammy's pumped up on demon blood. Nice work.

Aw, that was cute! I could see Sam falling back on old habits to make ends meet. Great job!
