This was such a cool story. The vamp...tracking the boys for a year...like a female bloodhound in heat!
My favorite part was when she came upon 'possessed' Sam. I thought that was very brilliant on your part! Poor Sam turned dog-bone...being fought over like that. Very clever indeed!
And of course, handsome Dean to the rescue. Our hero! These are the stories I like to dream about.
Thank you for that!
PS: You did get me...I figured it was Kate. Ha ha! Good job!
Thanks Karen. Oh, and glad I got you. It actually started out being Kate, then another writer on sn.tv used Kate in a story, so I went back and had a re-think, because I hate doing something similar to what another author has written. Probably why I usually don't like doing tags. Or challenges.
It was actually quite a fun exercise looking at episode locations and working out which ones I could use to weave Jenny's journey through. And her running across Meg while the demon was riding our poor Sammy - well, I just had to have some fun with that. I figured Meg would be quite - pardon the pun - possessive about her rights to have Sam all to herself, and give our bloodhound vampire a hard time. Which neatly took her out for a while so she strayed even further behind the elusive Winchesters.
Thanks so much for reading.

i do feel that their should be an appluse for this story. Thank you for appling the images of the situation.
Thank you for that. This one was a little sleeper story - but it was an experience to write - researching all the places the vampire followed them to throughout season 2 and half of season 3. I had fun doing it. I'm pleased that you had fun reading it.

This was really good! Totally surprised me. I really thought it was Kate. Loved the moments between the brothers. You did a great job with the brothers 'voices'. Love the 'Daphne'd' line! :D
Author's Response: Thanks for that, Diane. That Daphne reference actually came from my good friend and fellow author Catchme21. She's a good mate - she lets me use it quite frequently. Actually, I had originally intended for it to be Kate, till I read a multi-chapter story involving Kate coming after the boys, so in good conscience I went back and changed my protagonist to Jenny, the girl they couldn't save. It seemed to work in well with my love of plot twists - lol!....Jules

I really liked this story too! THis is so cool. I have not read your stories before, but now I have bunches to read :-) That will totall get me through to Thursday night!
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. It was interesting, weaving the trail of the vampire through the various places the boys had been, always a few steps behind them. Lol - hope that it does get you through.....Jules

Interesting tie-ins to several shows. Good job.
Author's Response: Thank you - and thanks again for looking up my old stuff. Some of it is a bit rough - lol. Think I've learned a bit since I started. Glad you enjoyed this one.

Wow, Jules, that was a tummy clenching read! The tension was a killer! The vamps desperation and lust just leapt out the page - I'm with Dean, that's maxed out OCD.
Loved the way you tied the eppies in with your twist, sensational stuff.
And gotta say, the vamp sleeping on the bed where Dean laid Sam's body was downright creepy. Your words here made my blood run cold through a heart still fragile from AHBL (especially after your "What Am I Supposed To Do")- "She had stayed in the same house that they had occupied; sleeping on the mattress stained with the younger one's blood. Lulled to sleep by his rich scent, she had dreamed of the brothers bleeding on the ground at her feet." You profiled her evilness in such a way that is was almost callous in its coldness. Brilliant, very original and beautifully written, you incite such strong emotions from us readers.
Another rivetting oneshot, great job. Thanks heaps.
Wow.... I don't know what to say. Thank you seems a bit weak after that awesome review.
Thanks so much. I did a lot of research for this one - it's good to know that it paid off. Sorry I chilled you - but I suppose if I have affected you in that manner, then I've done my job as a storyteller, and that's an ample reward for this humble bookkeeper.

Excellent story as with all of yours, keep going as it gives me inspiration to do one of my own.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad I have inspired you to have a crack at it. Writing can give many hours of pleasure, and the boys are such fun to play with.

Awesome story hon. Just loved how you tied it in with the actual episodes in a realistic timeline. Fantastic twist at the end when the vampire stalker was found out to be Jenny, all the way through you had me believing it was Kate! And regarding what another reviewer said about spellings, keep on with the Brit/Aussie ones, not all readers are from the USA and it's so refreshing to read a story with 'our' spellings for a change!
Author's Response: Thanks Sarah. And thank you for the spelling thing. I will take great pains to make sure I use American terminology for stuff - fender instead of mudguard, hood instead of bonnet, flashlight instead of torch, asphalt instead of bitumen. But I won't change the way I have been spelling for the last 40 years.

That was a nice story.Really clever the way you tied in the vampire hunting them with the episodes, giving just enough info to actually make us think about which one it was. I enjoyed the typical Winchester banter when she finally caught up with them and this bit was so Dean it made me smile;
The elder hunter shook his head as he steered his brother away from the dead girl. "Man, that's taking OCD to a whole new level. Come on, let's get you back to the car and get the hell out of here before someone decides to check out that gunshot."
Very enjoyable :)
Author's Response: Thank you Michaela - much appreciated. Glad you liked the banter. It did originally start out as being Kate, but then I read an old story with her featured so I couldn't in good conscience use her - and then I thought of the girl Sam tried to rescue, and used her instead.

Read about half your fics and this one is my favorite so far. Regarding your stories: your writing and thought process is very good, however, a little too much hurt/injured/agonized Sam for me. I like to see him in hunter mode, full of virgor and stamia more often and not sickly, etc. I also have to get use to seeing kerb (curb) and recognise (recognize). Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: I spell the Aussie way, and I make no apologies for that. Those who know me are used to that little idiosyncracy. Thank you for your review.

"Dude - only you could get Daphne'd from a freakin' truck stop."
LOL only our beloved Sam would be able to do that.....and i think that's why we all love him so much. :)
Author's Response: Lol - I agree - that's why we (including us Dean girls) love Sam - he's just so good at getting Daphne'd. Although I think if he could, he'd remove that nice big target from his back. Glad you enjoyed this little piece - it was fun to do, and it was the first ever challenge I entered. I didn't win, but I didn't expect to - I just wanted to have a go and see if I could write on demand, as it were. It's all about having fun, and I did....Jules

I really enjoyed this. It's well thought out.
Author's Response: Thanks for that. It actually took me a few days to put together, as I had all the research of the locations from the various episodes, then working out where to weave Jenny and her hunt so that her path could cross - or just miss - the boys...Jules

I absolutely love this, Mum!
You had me going from the very beginning of it because I just knew it had to be Kate. Way to pull the rug from under my feet! I never even suspected the other chick! But I guess that's what makes you brilliant...you take the obscure characters and you make them real.
I really enjoyed this and it was a nice little surprise to see a little treat from you!
Author's Response: Oh, daughter - you honour me, you really do. Ah, well, it started out being Kate, but I read a story by Raven524 on sn.tv - one of her old ones - and it had Kate in it, so I changed mine to Jenny, the girl that poor Sam thought he was rescuing from the nest. Glad you loved it so much...Jules

nice oneshot Jules! The beginning really gave me the chills. Your skill to describe her stalk the boys is creepy, i hope you're not talking from experience... Lol. Anyway, if you could threw us little oneshots like this one here and there, you'd do your fans a big pleasure... See you
Thank you my friend - I do actually have another little story that is with my beta at the moment, just getting a final check before posting. It's one that our own Danrac1066 (Angela) helped me with, too. So hopefully that might be ready next week. And after that - well, the muse hasn't gotten back from her holiday yet, so we'll see.
Lol- no, no stalking skills, unfortunately. I have had a prowler outside the house, though - does that count? Don't worry, that was a few months ago, and he hasn't been back since the security grilles got installed on the house....Jules
