Very powerful!!! It took me ages to read this coz my friend told me what it was about. Glad I did finally read it though, you handle it with the upmost care, still keeping the boys as the ones we know and love.
Author's Response: Thanks again, Schelz! Glad it was worth the wait!

This was a very brave piece of writing. I'm especially impressed by your ability to deal with a sensitive and taboo subject in a very real and subtle yet poignant way.
My only comment? I wanted to see vengeance from the boys especially Sam - but your version is far more real! Maybe less satisfying, but definitely more real!
Thanks for the read! Can't give this any less than 10
Author's Response: Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you were able to enjoy this story - despite the subject matter. And thanks for the stars!! All 10!

Gollyee that was traumatic and horrible but very sensitively handled.
Why is it we love so to find ways to terrorise and torture Dean? He's a pain magnet, a touchstone for suffering and hurt.
Gotta sleep now, traumatised!
Clever writing edgy and uncomfortable but worthy Bird x
Author's Response: What do they say? You only hurt the ones you love?? And we LOVE Dean! Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Fabulous story, gut wrenching and very hard to read in places. But brilliantly written. Thank you Lorraine

This was an amazing write,
My heart simply broke for Dean. His anguish was outright palpable. I was actually holding my breath when he went into the restroom and then knew he had to look in the toilet, discovering all the blood.
And Sam's degree of worry mixed with frustration was quite well done. You handled a touchy story with tremendous grace.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review. As I've said before, this was a tough story to write and I'm glad I got things right for Sam and Dean.

Wow, this was extremely confronting, and my heart was pounding for Dean. But you handled it all very sensitively and respectfully, pinpointing exactly the true nature of an assault like that -it's about power, not about anyhting else. Well done.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing my story. I'm glad you enjoyed it and found it to be well written. As a police officer and self defense instructor, this topic is near and dear to me.

Wow. I knew where this was going when he let Todd talk him into the 2nd game of pool but the way you unraveled it, revealed it to Sam, had Dean work through it... the loss of control being his issue, letting his guard down, feeling weak... you just did a fabulous job with this.
Author's Response: No, thank YOU for reading and reviewing. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story and how I handled things (or how Dean handled things?). Thanks.

I always thought you were incredibly brave to do this story. It's such a delicate issue and you handled it with grace, well, at least as much at the boys would let you;). Awesome work!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing here!! I guess for me, considering my line of work and such, the subject comes second nature, to be an advocate for prevention and aftercare... I'm still glad to know that I handled it well. Or, I let Dean handle it his way... Thanks!!
