How very sad. Dean had to grow up really fast. No wonder he hates "chick flick" moments. Great story.
Thanks for reading and reviewing. I especially love getting reviews on older stories.
Dean did have to grow up so fast and John may not have liked it, but in his eyes it was necessary. Something Wicked showed us how tragic it turned out for Dean. Take care, B.J.

This is an awesome tag to Something Wicked. I remember clearly the difference in mood John shows in the after-the-rescue scene, hugging Sammy and glaring dagger eyes at Dean. You've provided an interesting and thought-proviking alternate view of it. Thanks! Sue
Hey, thanks, Sue!
My first ever tag. I simply always loved John and never conceived how some fans didn't. This was my attempt to show he wasn't just a heartless bastard, but rather a comflicted father doing what he thought was best for his sons.
Take care, B.J.

what a beautiful story. I love the way John describes Dean and what he will one day have to become, Sam's protector. Thanks for writing.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading. Yeah, I've always loved John and even tho he was tough on the boys, particularly Dean, it was all because of what he knew was out there waiting to hurt them. What a terrible burden that put on the man and then his son. Later, B.J.

I'm having a bit of a BJ fest and reading your 'back catalogue' and oowee I'm finding gems all over the place!
john is wonderfully complicated, essentially good but damaged man and has always tried to do the best for his boys but life has been tough for him. You description of him here is indisguised and honest and a pleasure to read. Thanks for sharing, BJ.
Yes, this was my very first one-shot and tag! I honestly didn't even know what that all entailed at the time. I just knew that Dean misunderstood Dad's look.
I love all the Winchesters, but I also love examining their warts along with their good points. Their very complexity and trying to do right, while being completely human makes them so very fascinating.
Thanks for letting me know my old stories still have relevance. Take care, B.J.

This is a very touching story. It speaks of John's inner battle---to let his son be achild or protect him by forcing him to become a hunter. The last paragraph is especially powerful.
Thanks. I've always loved John and I found it disturbing when this episode aired that so many thought so badly of John. Thought that he dangled his children as bait for the shtriga.
I simply knew as a child that Dean had misinterpreted John's look because I knew John loved his sons deeply and it was worry and pain at the lives they were forced to live that was on his mind.
Ah, the tragedy of the Winchesters. Thanks for reviewing, B.J.

I ike the way one minute the words are strong and noble and then you get something like...John knew it was a crappy deal. Anchors you back in reality
Thanks. This was my very first one shot and I really didn't know what I was doing except I knew for a fact that Dean misunderstood Dad's look.
How sad for young Dean and how Dean still carries that pain. So glad Dad had the talk with him in IMTOD.

Oh, you finally posted over here, huh, dorkbutt? YOu've been avoiding us, methinks.
Love this story.
Sorry, having a little trouble navigating the new waters. Illiterate comes to mind. LOL
I'll get there eventually.
