Is it Strangeways to Holcombe Hill? Having seen eppie 4x22 and the beginning of season 5, I think I prefer your outcome, lol. Keep up the great writing!
Author's Response: A-haa! Sadly no, it was a poke at '42' the number and it being the Answer, LOL. Thanks for reading - and the stars! What a fab review to find first thing on a Monday morning! :) Cheers!

I don't quite know whether to laugh or not. I'm certainly left feeling as though I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
As for the significance of 4 minutes and twenty seconds: I know I'm wrong but the best I can come up with is it is a play on the numbers 4 and 2 ie 42 - the meaning of everything from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe.
Nope, you were absolutely right - a lame 42 poke it was. :)
Thanks for the review. And the stars :) Always good to get feedback!

Ah ha ha, fantastic!
I loved the way you built it up and let it rip with that hilarious ending. And, ha, I got the 4:20 reference!
Nice to see when there's quite this much angst going around the fandom. Writing "Staggering" left me completely exhausted and with a strong urge to down half a dozen fizzy drinks and play Twenty20 till I passed out.
Flattered beyond belief that "Staggering" inspired you. Thank you!
Your piece was just excellent - I loved the style of it. And I try to do angst, I really do... But there's this streak in me that constantly tries to de-rail owt angsty I write into parody territory.
Your story inspired me to write down the germ of an idea I had while rewatching the ep, and go with the silliness.
Ta for writing! :)

Oh you devilish creature. I never doubted you for one second, but still the way you built it up, it was so adrenaline packed, so tense, and then "Yeah'ello?". absofrigginlutely priceless. And the answering machine was killer.
Thanks! Looks like this one went over well! Lovin' those stars, luv, ta very much!

OMG! I know this is probably exaggerating, but you did the same for me once so I figured I'd be safe. I'm just leaving this because I just saw your response to the 4 minutes and 20 seconds and TOTALLY LOVE the referance. Ahh the towel....
The answer to life = 42. You can never understand the answer if you don't know the question. ;) Ahh thank you VERY much for that one! Just brought a whole nother level to the story :D :D Seriously can't stop giggling.
I exaggerated in one my reviews to you? No, I don't think so... You don't need exaggeration, you're already ace. :)
And I always try my best to write hysterical I LOVE YOU reviews - which means I have to go away and come back later, LOL. We are English, we are restraaaaiined.
I always thought Sam and Dean were definitely from the 'what do you get if you multiply 6 by 9?' universe. There's no way they're from the one where that makes 42, LOL, not with their crappy lives so far, ROFL!
I also used a tiny weeny Star Trek reference ('resistance is futile') and even a sly Matrix nod ('stiff drinks. lots of stiff drinks'), but they were just for my own personal amusement - and I really don't think anyone's going to get those, obscure as they are, LOL!
Ta for coming back and ta for even more stars! You are large celestial body, my friend. (In a star kinda way, not a fat-ass kinda way. Oh. I'll go now...)
Author's Response: ** I MEANT 'NOT' write hysterical reviews, LOL!

She built the momentum to blinding heights. Pulse rising! Heart pounding! Lungs heaving for air that seems to elude them! Our eyes open wide, waiting, praying, LIVING for the next words... and she frames the moment of expense so agressively perfect with one just word: "Yeah'ello?"
I second lostatc: Only you m' dear :D Wonderful and I think it's just what we need in this time of angst. Keep it up!
Ok, now I'm laughing like a maniac cos I couldn't read a much more glowing review... Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now I'm going to get a good strong cup of builder's tea and think about how I'm going to go work after all these kind words!

You had me so going for an emotional upheaval! Reminds me of Department H! LMFAO
OMG, Dept H? I LOVE YOU for mentioning them, LOL!
Glad you liked it - just couldn't let them finish s4 like that without a slight poking with a stick. :)
I take your reading as a kindness. It's not all folk in the 'verse that can spare the time. :)

Only you. That is fabulous. I wanted so badly for it to be scary and terrible (in a freightened way, not a terribly written way) but all I did was grin. Thank you so very much!
Ai gotta know. 4 minutes and 20 seconds?
Aw, thanks! And ta for the stars!
4 min 20 secs = the magic '42'. Always know where your towel is! ROFL
