Wow. I really loved this story. It has been a long time since I read a fanfic where I not only appreciated the plot and characters but the writing as well. You did an excellent job. You gave it a stream of consciousness feel, while still keeping it organized enough for readers to easily follow. Like everybody else, I liked the song choice. I am going to have to look it up. But my favorite part was the interactions between John and Sam. You gave a glimpse of the rarely seen good aspect of their relationship, of a father and son who love each other despite differences. Five stars!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you SO much! You know, to be really honest, I'm kind of sad that people are always so surprised about Sam and John actually getting along in (my) stories, there are not enough stories out there that show that, despite everything, they are still father and son who love each other. But, well, more for me to write about, huh? ;) Again, thank you so much, reviews like this one really keep me going these days, you made my day! :)

I enjoyed this... nice use of Sam's pov. :)
Author's Response: Well, considering that the point of view was the one thing I wasn't sure about, this really means a lot! :) Thank you!

Loved this, really well written.
And you totally got across the struggle it was for Sam to stay conscious, and also the struggle it was for John to keep holding him up whilst Dean found the bones and salted and burned them.
Loved too how Sam remembered the lyric game they played in the car, and that their dad played along with him, knowing how important it was to try and keep his youngest conscious.
And what a stubborn ghost, even iron not repelling it. It certainly had its sights set on Sam and wasn't going to go easily.
Loved the lyrics you chose, not only because of Sam's fear of clowns and the fact that he was stuck in the middle with his dad but because I love the Stealers Wheel song Stuck In The Middle With You.
A really entertaining read, thanks
I'm glad I got the struggle across, I can't imagine having to hold up a guy like Sam for such a long time, it was one of the things I liked about that setting. I'm so happy everybody loves the lyrics so much, the moment I read "clowns" I knew it was the right song for this story! ;)
Thank you so much, I'm happy you liked it! Miki

I enjoyed your story, and I remember the song. Sadly, I am that old. :p

Really loved that whole stream of consciousness thing of Sam's throughout the story. Put me right there in the barn with them, helping to hold Sammy up.
And what a freaky ghost - even iron didn't repel it. That was so creepy, the way it just kept staring at Sam and leaning on that pitchfork, keeping him pinned to the wall in excruciating pain.
Loved the little moment between Sam and his father, playing the game, and John realising that he really needed to play along. And I loved the song you picked - I've always loved that Stealer's Wheel song ever since it first came out. Yep, I'm that old....*sigh*.....
Thanks so much for sharing this - I thoroughly enjoyed it.
You know, when I was googling for that song I only had the "stuck in the middle with you" line in my head, but the moment I read the clowns line I knew this is THE song for that snippet, I love it! :D
To be honest, steram of consciosness stories are not my favourite to write, so I'm really glad this one came out okay.
Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

wow, it is soooo good! I really LOVE this story. You are doing such a good job with John´s character.
P.S. I hope, this is not unpolite: please, If you could only see....?
Thank you so much, I'm having so much fun with John's character and it means very much to me that people can enjoy him like this! :)
About If you could only see... The next chapter is done (looong story about that, should have been done weeks ago but my computer died and almost everything was gone and so on...), I'm waiting for my beta to get better and I think I'll be posting this week, or the weekend at the latest. But it IS done! :)
