You write the best brotherly moments.
This had originally been intended for one of the UnGen challenges, but it turned out to be a wee bit too long for the word count limit, and I didn't finish it in time, so I opted out and just posted it as it was.
It was a fun piece to do - I love to keep the readers guessing at times, so it was an interesting mental exercise to keep Dean's identity hidden - even from himself - lol.
And then of course, I just had to throw in the shapeshifter for the heck of it.
So glad you enjoyed it.

Ohhhh....you got me good with this one.
I liked it alot. Love how your mind works...very creative..sneaky...fun!
Hey, there, brave woman! LOL.
Have yet to check out the Just Added page to see if your story's up, but rest assured, I'll be there.
Thanks for this - this was another of those really weird, totally left-field ideas that came to me one day, and I pretty much banged it out in one evening, then spent the next week tweaking it - lol.
And I got you? Stupendous! I love it when a plan comes together!
Take care, my friend.

Hi Jules! I've banned myself from reading season five tags since I'm working on one but I just needed a fix to get me through the work day so I figured I'd read one of yours that I hadn't gotten around to yet. This one was very appropriate. Brought back the whole thing of home at the end of Swan Song. Oh Lord, now watch me tear up while I'm at work! I enjoyed this one and liked how Dean knew something wasn't right about the imposter Sam even though he wasn't even sure of who he was.
There are a lot of them out there, that's for sure. I've read quite a few - some I've agreed with, some I haven't. I think the whole of fandom is just in so much shock over the ending that the emotions screamed for some sort of release.
I'll look forward to what you're cooking up over there.
Thanks for that - this was just one of those little one-shots that came out of nowhere. Inspired, weirdly enough, by the smell of blood from a cut ankle. My mind's a freaky place sometimes. Glad you loved the home thing, and yes, even more poignant now after Swan Song. *sniffles*....note to self - buy more tissues when I go shopping....

I loved this mystery here- and really loved that the shapeshifter didn't really fool Dean!
Well, you're true to your word - LOL! Thanks so much for that. And no, years of growing up with and fighting alongside his brother has given Dean some sort of inbuilt radar as far as Sam is concerned - like in BUABS when he knew it couldn't be Sam doing those things, and he was right.....Jules

Nice. I especially liked this:
"Comfort - home - safety - it crashed over him in endless waves. The doe eyes widened in concern, searching his face, while the huge hands moved over his head with surprising tenderness. 'Sammy.' Something clicked inside, like a piece that had been out of place."
Interesting twist with the shapeshifter, didn't see that coming. Glad Dean was able to tell from the eyes that something was off.
Thank you. The shapeshifter was actually a last-minute twist. Sometimes a story will take on a life of its own, and this bit just evolved literally as I was typing the rescue.
Thanks so much for your review - I'm so glad you enjoyed it....Jules

This was really good. I liked how you kept the identity of the wounded brother obscured in the beginning. I had to force myself not to peek ahead and see which one it was. I also loved how you described them. And I was so focused on the 'vampire' that the shapeshifter totally came out of left field. Great job. Thanks for sharing this. :D
Author's Response: Twisty little me strikes again - lol. Thanks, Diane. I sort of told it a little from the point of view of the muddled brother, so it had his vague thoughts and feelings, and sense of confusion. The shapeshifter actually cme out of left field for me, too. In the first draft he wasn't there, but I felt it needed something, and my mind just wandered off one day, came back and whispered, what if.... So the story evolved. It's a bit of an organic process sometimes. Glad you liked it....Jules

Author's Response: Thanks for that. I'm glad you did. This was just another one that seemed to come out of nowhere. Some stories are like that - inspired by seemingly random things. Thanks for reading....Jules

Dean Winchester - badass demon hunter. Sam Winchester - psychic wonder. He smiled back as the last pieces of the puzzle fell into place. Home. Safety. Sammy. Everything finally fit together. "Let's go, little brother."
LOL i think this sums up the boys perfectly!!!! :p
Dean's concussion has me aspiring to be his nurse.......hahaha.
LOL - me, too! You bring the towels, and I'll grab the hot water and a sponge....*drools*...
Thanks for that - it was intended as a Get Well Angela piece for the challenge, but it ran too long, so I just had to post it normally. Glad you enjoyed it....Jules

Another great story. Wow--you've been on such a wonderful roll. Keep going, pleeeeease. I really, really liked how Dean was looking at "Sam's" face and thinking that something just wasn't quite right.
And having him thinking of Sam as home? Breathtaking. I find that totally, beautifully, believeable.
Author's Response: Thanks Vanessa. Hmm, that's twice I've addled poor Dean's brain - think I'd better leave him alone for a while, what do you reckon? Yes, I've been a busy little bee - when the mood takes me, I just have to keep pounding away at the keyboard....Jules

hehehe, poor Dean, you've just been thumping him over the head a lot lately. Great oneshot - Loved that he could tell which Sammy was his - ;) Kel
Author's Response: I have, haven't I? Better go back to thumping Sam - LOL. Or perhaps not - my auntie might rap me over the knuckles for Sammy-thumping... Thanks for that Kel - I'm pleased you liked it so much...Jules

well, shapeshifter are comfusing enough, so with a concussion in addition... Be careful Jules, we could get used to these mid-weeks treats! and keep your mind on a solid leash, a long one, but anyway, cause you know, it can be useful sometimes...;)
Well, bribes used to work on me, but they somehow don't work on my beta any more *pouts*...and she's snowed under with work this week as I am, so unfortunately no mid-week treat this week. But my usual update will happen.
And I'll bear your advice in mind about that leash - LOL. Glad you liked this one, hon...Jules

Very exciting, had me very confused! I have to go back and re-read to see which Sam was at the door, lol!
Dean's emergence from the fog was very sweet. I love how careful and patient Sam was, and how he stayed connected throughout, looking back as to check on Dean.
Author's Response: And hugs right back to you, Jen. Great to have you along. Aww, thanks for that - I do love brotherly moments, although I'm not the master of them like my dear friend SupernaturalGeek. Wonder if she'd give me lessons..... Jules
