Beautiful writing and story!

Good fanfic. Felt so bad for Sammy! Couldn't believe he nearly drowned! Can't wait to read your next story!

Ahhhh! Good story! You really had me worried for a moment that the shifter might really have been John-and wouldn't that have made someone change their underwear?
This: "...because Dean is the master of all things Sam." Was a wonderful clause! And I really loved how you used epilepsy in this story. I can sorta relate to the disorientation; my dad has epilepy (pedimall) So this was just very, very cool :)

I love this verse.
| BranchSuper chapter 1 . 9/14/2012
Oh, oh, sounds like the shifter made an impression on Sam, and not a good one.

Poor Sam is so sad in this one. With Sam's brains they should have apprenticed him to Bobby Singer and sent him to college to study information management and folklore as a treasury for the hunting community.

Oh my gosh. This was INCREDIBLE. It had everything I love in a fic...epileptic Sam, Shapeshifter!John, freaked out and protective Dean, hurt Sam, and good grammar and spelling to boot! Thank you! This was sooo well written. The way the shapeshifter was taunting Sam was gold. I love the way Sam started to doubt himself. I also found it interesting how Sam actually *wanted* to be a hunter before this encounter, and even more interesting how he's never been on a hunt due to his epilepsy. Did John still train him to be a hunter even though he never participated? Anyway...I really wanted to see John's reaction to all of this. Is there any chance of a follow up? *blinks eyes like an imploring puppy* pweeeeaaassseeee? For your fans? Hehe.
But seriously. I can't stress I how much I ADORE this verse! Especially preseries, with John. For some reason I find this verse more interesting with John included rather than the other seizure!Sam stories I've read that are in, like, season 6 or 7.
You have a gift though. The way you write so seamlessly, the way you make everything flow. I've only just started my first story yesterday and I constantly look at your writing as inspiration and example. Your description of the beach took my breath away: Waves crash against the beach, spitting foam and dragging back out into the black eternity beyond the sand. The moon is a faint glow behind the clouds.
By the way...There is this girl in my Chorus who had to stand up in front of everyone on the first week of school...she had epilepsy and was required to let us know in case she has a seizure in class. It made me think of your story and I think because of reading your verse I was more educated on epilepsy when meeting someone who actually had it. I wasn't as ignorant or even freaked out as I would have been without your stories. Later we talked and she said it's good for people to know about conditions like this, so thank you for giving us a glimpse of what it's like to have this condition.
Anyways, I am waiting (im)patiently for your next installment. (I was getting a bit tired of reading all your stories over and over ;) )

Wow. Wow wow wow. The whole thing was brilliant, especially how you got so perfectly inside Sam's head, and knew exactly what buttons to make the shapeshifter push. I loved every line and the impact you gave the ideas behind every word.
But none of it could have prepared me for the last few lines. I'm speechless.
"Sam curls up in the bed and listens to Dean's agitated pacing, thinking that one day, one day soon, he won't be here. One day he won't drag Dean and Dad down or get in the way, and he won't have to face another monster ever.
He'll miss them, miss them so much because even just thinking about missing them makes his chest hurt, but he'd be selfish to stay.
And anyway, they'll be better off without him."
...I honestly don't know what to say...This is so incredibly Sammy...But what I love most about it is that it's not JUST Sam. It's a lot of people. Coming from someone who will be facing college in just under a year, you nailed these thoughts, particularly how they tie in with Sam;s future at Stanford.
"He'll miss them, miss them so much because even just thinking about missing them makes his chest hurt, but he'd be selfish to stay. And anyway, they'll be better off without him."
...Wow. Thank you for this story. :)

Oh my gosh I just love your epileptic Sam sotries! This one made me feel so bad for Sam. I can't imagine how it would feel to lose pieces of time because of epileptic fits. It must be so depressing to feel like nothing but a burden to the people you love... I hope John isn't dead...
| wandamarie chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
wow good one thanks
| Emmers224 chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
Oh, Sam. *rubs chest* Poor guy always makes my chest hurt.
I loved this story! You jumped into it feet first and kept on running and I loved it! The shifter was intimidating. I'm not sure who I would want to face least. Shifter Dean or Shifter John...
Nicely done! A lovely little story I was more than happy to sink into. :)

That was so good, always love your writing, especially anything in this 'verse. Great job, and it was nice to see something from Sam's POV, because it seems like not too many people are able to write it and do it well. You did an awesome job, thank you for the wonderful fic!
| sarah chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
owww! great shot
poor Sam , loved Dean shooting shape shifter John to save Sam
| skag trendy chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
That was truly frightening, the idea of being dragged down to the ocean, unable to fight back or defend yourself, and being held under the water. For some reason, it seems even more scary with it happening at night.
And poor Sam, now convinced more than ever that he's nothing but a burden. I hope that Sam's family gets to address that issue in your next installment in the 'verse...?
Cheers hon. Great little story.

This was brilliant, heartbreaking but brilliant. Aah, poor Sammy, all his insecurities and fears come to the fore with shifter John's words, and how cruel the shifter planning on drowning him, knowing his desire to swim but unable to go into the water. You really had me holding my breath there with Sammy but great Dean arrived in the nick of time and shot the shifter, not waiting to find out if it was a shifter or something possessing his dad. Heartbreaking ending but it leads well into what we know happened in canon.
Great job as always. :)
