Just wanted you to know that I saw your little story add-on and I liked it a lot;-) Sam and Dean got to spend a little holiday time at Stanford, and you even managed to work in the mistletoe! So, is Jess one of the cute girls down the hall??
I had thought about that but probably not as Dean only met Jess for the first time in epsode 1 S1. Glad you liked the add on...Jacq

Doing some catch-up reading here. I liked this, a very original idea--and that's hard to do, especially with a Christmas story, nicely executed. The only thing I'm wondering about is, did Dean go and visit Sam at Stanford? If he did go, did he actually talk to Sam or just lurk in the shadows?
Hi Sue...I had this theory that if no reviews were given within 48 hours then none would be forthcoming, how wrong was I! Thank you so much for your comments,so much appreciated and just for you I have an add on....
Sam was alone in his room; an emptiness he couldn't shift was settled at the core of his soul, too many Christmases had passed without Dean. He'd not even had card, but then Dean didn't do cards. A distant familiar rumble jerked him out of his internal misery, he listened intently as the noise grew closer and closer until it came to a stop outside but then a deathly quiet followed and for a moment he believed it was his imagination creating what he wanted to hear. But then the familiar footsteps that he'd grown up with approached his door. The tentative knock came a few moments later. Pausing for only a second Sam hurried to the door opening it so fast he hit himself on the nose.
"Sammy what the hell are you doing? Are you goin to let me in or what? I got beer, oh and err Merry Christmas...oh and a present for you geek boy." He smiled as he handed his tall baby brother a small sprig of Mistletoe, "There's a couple of really cute girls down the end of the hall, so thought I would share this...being Christmas an all."

Enjoyed your story.
I could picture a young Dean with his mistletoe. Of course young girls wouldn't be able to resist him even at that age.
Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Hey, I thought you wrote a lovely story, totally unexpected but happy and that's what we all want for our Winchesters this Christmas.
You nicely tied in the mistletoe to all three memories and showed how Dean matured over the years. It was really nice to see him play matchmaker.
Don't get discouraged from a lack of reviews, there are so many stories out there and just not enough time to read them all. Myself, I hardly read anything now, spend way too much time writing my own stories and it is definitely my loss, missing out on so many terrific stories.
If writing is your passion then keep doing it, your talents will grow and your stories will find an audience. Just enjoy writing for its own sake and the pleasure it brings you.
Have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the holidays. And don't worry about being shy, remember Jensen is known for his shyness and he doesn't let that stop him, he just goes after what he wants and works his way thru it. I know it is hard, but in a way the internet is a huge help, you can express yourself without having to physically face someone. Just remember that everyone has their own priorities and sometimes good stories get lost in the massive offerings.
Take care, B.J.
Many thanks for the rating and the comments. I admit I was only waiting until the winner had been announced then was going to delete this...but your kind words are encouraging and a great Christmas present,
Merry Christmas, Jacq
