The simple fact, however, was that Dean was better at giving than getting. The last donut, the first shower, the you’re safe hug after a last-minute rescue, his life. All of it offered freely to Sam, all so hard for Dean to accept in return. -- K Hanna Korossy, Wealthy
Hi everyone, I'm Jenn. I love tons of things, including all kinds of music, hanging out with my awesome friends, and, you guessed it: SUPERNATURAL!
I'm usually on MSN messenger in the evenings (firstname.lastname@example.org), so feel free to IM me any time you want!
If you need any help with the site, I'll do my best there as well (even if it means running and crying to Jessica for help). But shoot me an email/IM and I'll see what I can do ;D
Tag to "Shadow".
With the ordeal the boys have just been through, physical wounds might be the least of their problems. Or so Sam thinks. If only he knew the whole story.
Spoilers for "Shadow", obviously.

Good grief, Laura, you write inner monologue so freaking fabulously it makes my head explode. There was hardly any dialogue, besides Sam talking to himself (which was funny and sad, all at the same time) and it makes me insanely jealous.
I need to borrow you when I write, kthnx.
Anyway, this first chapter is, duh, amazing. Poor Dean, he really IS a stubborn bastard when it comes to wounds. Him and that pride. *swoons*
Not Dean Winchester, captain of the League of Stubborn Idiots.
I snorted pretty loud here. I know a few people in that league ;D
Had he been awake, him taking off Dean's pants would have been a whole lot more of a struggle. Dean would have probably tried to manage that on his own even if both his hands were broken.
This is so true! Dean, for goodness sake, let your brother help you! And ROFL, that first sentence is all sorts of wrong when taken out of context.
Dean had his face turned towards the door, his movement unconsciously tracking his brother's departure...
Goodness I love that line. Done in true Dean-fashion, looking out for Sammy even when he's unaware of everything else around him.
I realize I owe you like, 938.72 reviews for about 394 other stories. I'm so lazy.
Know that this was fabulous and I loved every word of it. I'll read chapter two, too, just when my stomach isn't growling. *shuffles off to find food*
Yay! A Jenn review!!!
Lol, you have no idea how much this review cheered me up just before going to bed. And don't worry, I got kinda sucky at reviewing lately, I know the feeling that you want to review something but just don't find the time to do it. So don't worry about anything.
I'm just giddy and glad that you liked it so far, and I'm guessing you'll also like the second chapter. Or at least I hope you will :D
And yeah, that one sentence is very wrong when taken out of context. I didn't even realize. Eeek, lol.
Thanks a lot for the review, it really made me smile. And now go off eat something, we wouldn't want you to faint :D

Goodness, the description alone is worthy of a novel of praise, but I'm far too lazy to give it the praise it deserves. Know that I really felt as though I could see everything, like I was there, it was fabulously done.
And speaking of FABULOUS, fabulous beginning with the vision of the girl running, I wasn't expecting a vision and was pleasently surprised.
Her pale face was frozen in eternal terror.
Really really awesome description. Gave me the good chills.
You were very true to the boys' character here. I especially loved the end, how Dean was pretty much out of it yet he still had to comfort Sammy. How adorably Dean-like is that?
“Alright, fine. But if I puke, it’s all on you, man.” He chuckled and nudged Sam with his free hand. “Get it, ‘all on you’?”
I practically choked on my lunch. I'll be picking food off the walls for a week. Oh Dean, you jokester, you!
Wow, thank you! It's really nice to see new people enjoying this and I'm kinda blushing here. I'm really glad you liked it and thank you so much for leaving a review. *huggles review* I'm especially happy you enjoyed the joking...I was really afraid it'd fall flat.
Set immediately after AHBL2, Dean and Sam confront the aftermath of Sam's ressurection and Dean's deal to save him. In the midst of this storm of emotion, however, they encounter another hunter with a fight of his own. A fight that could take Sam. Over Dean's dead body.

When Jessie finally got me to stop being lazy and actually watch Supernatural (how can someone be so lazy about watching television? it doesn't make sense), she sent me a fic and author recommendation list the very next day (she knew I would need it!). You were the very first name under the "authors" section, with a nice little tag of "one of the very best".
I'm finally getting around to sending you a proper review, because being a lazy television watcher (so wrong) includes being a lazy fic reviewer.
In my defense, it's because I can never properly explain what a truly great fic does to me.
Like this one.
I don't even know where to begin. I love fics that start out as a sort of tag and then go into their very own plot. And this had a really great plot. Great demon choice, and working the awesome brother angle. Having a hunter who had lost his little brother was a great way to play this out.
I really enjoyed the characterization. I often find some authors can scrape the surface of the characters, yet they can't find that balance in the boys' personalities. Dean is too badass while Sam is too sensitive. That wasn't the case here, at all. Dean was badass, yes, but in true Dean fashion; badass teddy bear, when it comes to Sam. And Sam was spot on; worried, angry, compassionate, fearful and fearless at the same time. And not to mention you write what is probably the best and most convincing Bobby I've ever read. He's exactly how he should be.
The story as a whole was great. It was long, but it didn't drag. The plot was firm. The description, emotions, and dialogue were extremely well written.
And now for some parts that stuck out for me:
"Oh, for Christ's sake," Bobby muttered. "Get your asses in the car. I'm driving."
LOL I busted out laughing, this is such a Bobby line.
The darkness of Wyoming seemed to swallow them.
The early morning sky was gun metal gray, clouds heavy and low.
Really awesome descriptions.
"Shove over, man," Dean groused good-naturedly, forcing Sam to roll onto his side and no longer mirror the position he'd held in death.
This tore at my heart, especially the "and no longer mirror the position he'd held in death." I could see in my mind the way Sam was lying, see Dean flashing back to the day before. I could see his face, his eyes, in the description. Amazing and gut wrenching.
The scream that hadn't died when Sam breathed again. The scream that only increased in volume as his time slowly ran out.
Oh man, what a way to end a scene. I love a good line, a really good line, and that last one is a REALLY good line. I got all tingly ;D
"If you two are done flirting." Bobby sat forward. "Maybe we can talk about this hunt.
ROFL again, perfect Bobby and awesome! I snorted water through my nose.
And I have to say, the whole little scene in the car, with the hysterically adorable brotherly banter made me all giggly like a true Supernatural fangirl. I was dying. Spot on, there. 10 stars and then some!
"Let's get him home," Bobby said softly.
Sam didn't raise his head. "Where is that?"
"Wherever you are, Sam," Bobby muttered.
MAN, I had goosebumps when I read that. It's so true! Again, way to stick that line of dialogue, just fabulous!
Alright, I'm done for now. I can't wait to see what more you have in store for this site! I'll try to keep up with reviews, but if you keep writing this much awesomeosity, I don't know if my lazy personality, mixed with my need to explain every little bit of what I loved in a fic, will work out well ;D
At any rate, keep writing these amazing stories and it's so awesome to see you over here on DD!
(more lazy: sorry for typos, I've not read over this to see if I've made sense, WHOOPS)
*Is laughing in delight*
This was a fantastic review!! And you're not lazy... just... um... well... you need encouragement! Yeah, that's it. I really appreciate you taking time to read and leave a review.
Thank you for pulling out the sections that spoke to you. That really touches me. I sincerely hope to hear from you again very soon -- well, as soon as I'm able to post again, that is. :)
The snorting water through your nose comment had me in stitches. *grin*

Sam is gushingly apologetic on the way to the hospital, cries more than Dean does when the bone is set, and flits around anxiously for several days, until Dean finally throws a muffin at him with his good arm.
*dies from the excessive adorableness that is this paragraph*
I've already been a complete emotional wreck lately, but this cuteness just did me in. Way to punch me in the gut with quite possibly the most awwwww-worthy sentence I think I've ever read.
Sam and Dean awake to find not everything is as they expected it to be.
Set shortly after 4.01 Lazarus Rising...so spoils up to that one.
Date: September 25, 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Waking Nightmares
Okay Sky, seriously, this was *all* you, hon. ALL. YOU.
I seriously kept thinking about this story long after I finished reading it. It's amazing. It tore at my heart. It was written beautifully, and it touched on all my senses. Now THAT'S something awesome.
Now go write me more hurt!Dean! And only-slightly-ass-ish-but-really-worried-and-concerned John!
You say that, yet you cannot deny your assistance. Mostly cause I wont allow you to, but also because you helped major and you know it.
It makes me happy to know I'm not the only one that this story is secretly stalking...because I can't seem to get it out of my head either. But seriously, I'd say i'm glad that I was able to toy with your emotions like so...but that sounds kind of mean. So i'll just think it really loud.

Rae, this was really incredible. In my experience, first person is a hard task to take on, but you've done it beautifully. This was just heartbreaking.
The description was just fantastic, and it was so creepy, the laughter coming from the bathroom yet nothing being there. And when the door slammed shut behind Dean when he went to investigate, I was on the edge of my seat. Literally, I was nose-to-screen.
The whole conscience, man in the mirror idea, that was truly brilliant. It gave me chills to read about.
I also loved poor helpless Sam. There was still that banter there, but you could tell he was so very concerned for his brother. I loved how he sat on the edge of the bed at the end, and how it didn't bother Dean that he was there. That always makes me feel squishy ;D
I knew what I had done. I didn’t need reminding. I knew exactly how many souls; I remembered every single face, every single tear and every single cry of pain.
This is so very Dean. You know, I could completely believe this. Dean is that kind of person who remembers everything, very observant. The poor thing would remember something like this, and it breaks my heart to think about it.
No matter what I do to try and redeem myself, it’ll never be good enough because the man in the glass will always be there, staring back at me with those cold disappointed eyes.
I love your wording on the last sentence here. It gave me chills, made me ache, broke my heart with every word. What a terrible thing for Dean to have to go through, and you've captured it right here with such beautifully heartbreaking language.
Despite such a sorrowful ending, I want to thank you for such an amazing read. This story definitely deserves its feature.
Hey Jenn!! I know I said thanks on msn for the great review and for the feature but I just wanna thank you again. It means so much! Writing in first person was so much fun and definately something I want to try again.
Mirrors can be so creepy, I always seem to avoid looking into them on a night but then again, I am a little bit weird.
Thank you again so much for your awesome review! It made my day, seriously :D
