Oh shit! Yeah, I said shit! I don't even know where to begin to tell you how much I adored that chapter.
First of all, the dream cracked me up! I totally knew he was dreaming about the car, but it was hilarious anyway.
The bulls locking horns and the pissing contest, so totally alpha male and totally Winchester! Loved that to death.
But damn it, why does Dean need to be so stubborn? And why the hell didn't Mark come and see him. Someone needs to see that something is wrong with him, but I'm suspecting that's not happening, is it?
Next chapter soon, please!! Don't make me beg!
You should know me well enough by now to know that by the time anyone figures out that there's something wrong with Dean, it will be well beyond too late.
And yes, start begging...you know how damn slow I have been lately. Maybe it'll get me motivated.

Loved this, can't wait for the next chapter. I'm also waiting on the next chapter of No Vacany. It sounded like there was going to be more? This is the first time I've done a review. I love your stories. You have a mind like mine only I don't have the words. Any story about Dean I'm dying for. Keep it up!!
I am thrilled you love this and thank you for dropping your first review here. Sorry for the No Vacancy delay but I was trying to get a couple other things finished up first. Since that didn't really happen, I'm gonna get on that update sometime this weekend (I hope)
I also love to hear that you are a fellow DeanFanatic! Can't have too many of those around, can you?

Aaa!!! Shit!!! why is Dean so stubborn about not showing Sam and Bobby that he's hurting, and why is Trish bothering Dean who is sick when you know that Dean is going to get his ass to the house and try to kick Trent Waterson's butt??????? you are going to let Dean kick his butt right?? cuz i think that even though Dean can't really do much right now it's kinda justice that Dean get his revenge and smack that evil doc for messing up his life!!!
Will Julia be ok? and Mark too?? i hope they are.....Dean needs them to recover!
Can't wait for the next chapter...and no worries about the whining...i think we are all entitled to whining every so often if only for therapy! and hey, you get to torture Dean! i think that's good therapy in itself.. :)
Hey now, make up your mind. Do you want Trish to leave Dean alone to convalesce or do you want him to kick Trent's ass? Don't ever count Dean out either, considering he's the one with the guns scattered around his trunk!
Anyway, on a serious note, I am really glad you're enjoying how much I'm torturing poor Dean. It truly does make me feel better to pile the crap on him and I am thankful you guys all like it so much!!
Oh, as for Julia...well...not answering that one just yet.

Thanks for the update even if you aren't 100%. You may use writing for therapy, but I use reading!
Can't wait to see what happens next. Good thing Sam left the cell phone eh? Poor Dean, I might have him re-coup for the summer with me if that's ok with you?
Glad I can be of service in the therapy department.
Hey, about that re-coup thing...not sure I'm too willing to share. I'm kinda stingy and believe me when I say that I don't play fair either. Maybe you can have Mon thru Thurs and I'll take the weekends. What do you say?

This is one of the chapters that really gives me the creeps, you can feel disaster just under the surface all the time! GREAT! Glad Dean had the chance to see his beloved car before everything starts (again) to spin out of control completely. It's obvious Trent is a powerful enemy now, poor Dean and poor Julia. But Sam will stand by his brother's side when things get desperate, so go on!!
Author's Response: Do you have any idea how happy it makes me to hear that this chapter was creepy? I love being creepy! You are so right, things are going to spin way out of control, and let me just say that it's a good thing Dean saw his car, he may need it later. (Oops, gave that away, didn't I?)

However I am very concerned about Julia here. Hope that Bobby and Sam better come to the rescue soon! Aw, and what's up with our boy? Knowing you, he will be in for another round of ... well, nothing fun I guess.
Roll on next update :)
You have hit the nail right on the head! Dean's next round of what I'm planning on isn't going to be anything even remotely close to what I'd call 'fun'.
I honestly wouldn't want to have Julia's tortures forced upon me either, but it sure would be fun to see poor Dean suffer at her hands...ahh, dare to dream!!

Hiya Helen, wasn't sure if I should start on # 25 already. I am not a very patient person if I wanna have something I really like. So, brace yourself to be pestered for an update via email... if it takes too long to be posted!!! Just kidding. But I soooo liked it.
....’Fine now that the fire that evil nurse with the face of an angel lit when she did what she did has finally burnt itself out’..... Haha. Snark is back. Though still not spoken out loud. He is gonna regret that he didn't say anything about the burning sensation. Ouch! So don't wanna be him....
....He’s out house hunting.... Hey! Another hilarious Dean-humour line. Great.
....Jotting down an order or two of his own.... sneaky tone .... Hey, Mark sure knows how to be mean as does Julia. Those two are made for each other. And I am not sure it'll help to page Mark if something's up in Dean's room. For one:Dean won't complain. Secondly, Trent will show up (that's a guess) before anything else will happen. And Dean will do everything to keep that blonde but stupid nurse from collecting his urine. Can't wait to read about that.
....devious little upturn in the corners of her mouth..... Hahahahahah. Love Julia. Dean clearly found his match.
....unusual humming ...... Like Dean, huh? Striking resemblance.
....Be gentle with me, I’m a virgin... Fits of laughter hahahahaahhahaaaa.
.....She’s worse than sadistic…she’s downright demonic.... Yeah, now he is really scared. You show him Julia. Wipe that smart mouth right out of that gorgeous face. Haha.
....There you are baby…god, I’ve missed you ....
Cut this review short. We got an important soccer championship game over here in Europe. And Germany has to win.... So, please update soon. Or beware of my vicious, poking via email! LOVE THIS STORY!!!!!
I know I'm late in responding, but I have to say that I really hope your team won! I know that excitement all too well (Baseball, Football, Basketball...year round sports in my house!)

HELEN!!!! Gotta say. AWESOME update. Like the idea about Roosevelt Asylum...
....feeling like the chastised child Bobby had meant him to be. ‘Yep, Bobby is worse than Sam ... Cool. Bobby does know his way around Dean. That man has to be stopped for his own sake sometimes.
....You’d have to have a brain up there in your head for it to be traumatized.... ROFL. Hilarious. Likin that and the slap on the head. Classic.
....Trent. Fucking Trent.... Damn. I didn't know if I wanted to read on. I did and love it.
...chains and shackles ... In any other situation including Dean and shackles and chains, I would have yelled out in pleasure (yeah, I KNOW. I am a perv, so what?) But that man is just too scary. Gawd I fear for Julia ... and Dean.
...Roosevelt Asylum.... What a stroke of genius. Excellent. Connecting Asylum to this. Both docs are insane. Tho I have to admit, Trent is way freakier that psychiatrist. And he is a real person. OMG. Love it. Literally jumped in my chair.
....black electrical cord that ran to the wooden box resting on the small table he had positioned next to the bed... Crap. That is gonna be some excruciating torture. Can't wait to read about it happening.
Sorry for the short review. You just have me on the edge. I wanna know how it plays out. So quickly, rushing to No. 25... See ya there, Ilka

Getting there, approaching your latest update ever so slowly, like Dean walking alongside his bed, carefully and apprehensive. OK Helen. This review has some rather large quotes in it. Didn't want to cut something as beautiful as that. Here we go:
....an old, black car that had been nothing more than another hand-me-down and a massive weapons collection that most people would never see in an entire lifetime or even have good reason to, but little else of any meaning to their name, a name that they could rarely share with anyone ... Awh, Sammy. You break my heart. Being a Winchester sucks out loud sometimes, now doesn't it? Like the way you string together all the weirdness in their life, Helen.
...I didn’t spend five weeks in a coma then another week in and out of a drug induced stupor before having surgery on my most private, most delicate parts and nearly dying after being OD’d by some crazy doctor with an even crazier vendetta against me for no good reason while some dead woman keeps whispering sweet nothings in my ear so just give him a break, will ya? Hell, I‘d be sleeping too if it were me, probably with a half empty bottle of Jack in my hand.... Hilarious and so true. You tell him, Bobby. Sam should take a break worrying over Dean. Guess that isn't gonna happen anyway. Neither could Dean if the situation were reversed. The boys just worry, all the time. Brought up worrying as they were so close to each other, comforting each other when need arose and they have to count on each other while hunting still. So they take care that the other is in good shape and if not it feels like a limb is missing for the healthy bro.
...stop staring at me you flaming pervert.... HAAAAAAHAHAAAAAAAAA. Have to admit, I was kinda staring too. Got my bucket right beside me. The thought of his muscular butt, the pallid skin and muscles spanning his scarred shoulders....... yummy.
...the nurses that have been parading in and out of here all day while you played sleeping beauty got an interesting eyeful... Exactly how I'd have done it. He is a sexy beast, especially when he is suffering and all pale...
...shower felt even better than sex... Ha, coming from Dean that sure means a lot. However, a shower WITH Dean would have been HOTTEST.
....all that hardware you got going on there.... Nice way of putting it. Very like the Winchesters. Can clearly hear him say it.
....A real shower and real clothes...today must be my lucky day. .... Well, you're bound to get lucky sometimes, once or twice in your life, Dean. But don't count on it to go on like this. Helen is a mean person and she is surely planning something devious. So enjoy it as much as you can, won't last forever.
...shit days ahead.... Bobby showing some kind of psychic ability here. But well, I think he refers to the rehab and all.
OK, nice chap again, Helen. On with the next one. Ilka

Helen. I liked this quieter approach and the level-headed break in Dean's behaviour. Gave me time to rest and just remember the past chapters. Felt like him in the end. Jeez, what a day/story. Exhausting but exciting.
...Bobby had been just as effected by it as Sam had....This man is a part of this small family just as the brothers. And he truly was affected by Dean's injuries and troubles. My heart bleeds for the three of them.
....Dean that had been buried deep inside that bruised, broken and battered body ....Owh. At a loss for words. Clear and poignant.
...actually hungry for the first time in days.... YAY. Boy is finally finding his way back. As soon as he starts eating again he will be better soon. But knowing you by now, I am damned sure you got more hurt and agony in store for him. Glad you gave him a break here... even if it is a short one.
....she really had been rendered speechless.... For once in her life I bet. And Dean really is in a terrific mood. Almost eerie. Maybe some other side effect?
....no way he was stopping, not until he was done.... Fighting till the end. Go down swinging. So like Dean. Prefer this facet of his character way more to the depressive Dean from the last chapter.
....gave him a cold chill when he saw how strikingly familiar it looked.... Don't just put that impression aside Dean! Guess he forgot to trust his instincts. God. I am really scared to think about Trent's intentions and plans for Julia and Dean. Guess they'll end up together being painfully tortured and Dean trying to protect her from that SOB struggling with his own weakness. That'd be awesome to read... Feeling chills creeping up my spine in anticipation.
....Stripping naked.... kinda sexy. In a pervy way... catheter still attached and all. But at least he is naked. Yummy. Where is my drool bucket? Crap, it's full to the brim. Have just read “Take my breath away” and there is some nice drool inducing stuff. 'Kay have to empty bucket and then get back to you and the next chapter...
Take care. Ilka

Hahahahaha...Dean being tortured by Julia!! I like that girl, cuz she's able to put up with Dean and all his crap......and i honestly hope to God that Julia won't be harmed in the making of this story......although it's a bit of wishful thinking, no??
As far as he was concerned, his private parts were remaining just that...private.
LOL i was laughing out loud when i read this line, it was totally Dean..i can really see him snarking that sentence to some doc or nurse!
Oh, and the thought of him just in boxers and sleeping.......*sigh* i feel like just tucking him in a blanket!!...among other things... LOL
Wishful thinking it is! Just keep wishing, that's all I can say.
Poor Dean and his privates, I sure have made them very public, haven't I? (But that's what's so much fin, isn't it?)
I'm totally with you on the boxers, but I'm thinking I'd rather see him w/out the blanket to hide under, I mean, why deprive us of the eye candy?

Getting closer to the new chapter bit by bit... This one was sweet. I liked that you had Bobby have a parental conversation with insubordinate Dean. Made me feel for Bobby as much as for Sam earlier. Those two men really love Dean, don't they?
...I think you better push me Sammy. I don‘t think I can do it myself.... How weak and to admit it... poor, shaking, lost Dean.
....like a guilt-ridden child that knew he’d been caught red handed with not just one but both hands in the cookie jar after being specifically told ‘NO‘....love this. Nice description. Dean sometimes really reacts like a child, doesn't he? Maybe because he was barred from a normal childhood... Hasn't grown up like normal men. But then again, men stay boys inside for their whole life. So ...
.....quickly concealed it back under the blanket in his lap in an effort to hide his unsteadiness .... He is scared and embarrassed at the same time. Has to freak him out big time.
....something akin to parental fury.... Bobby having his surrogate father moment. Love this. He so is a father figure to the boys. Maybe even a more normal one than John has ever managed. I am so glad they have Bobby for times likes this.
....He needs you more than the air he breathes.... Bobby and Trish know the brothers better than they do themselves. Likin that. Wondering now though, what'll happen to Sam on the show now that Dean is dead and in hell... Very troubling. Shit, thought I had gotten rid of the haunting emotions about that epi... guess have to write another one-shot 'bout it, this time from Sam's POV.
...trap you in a ring of salt and make you watch ‘Pretty Woman’ over and over again as punishment... LOLOLOLOLOL. Great idea. That'll make eternity in hell look like a piece of cake to Dean. Ain't no bigger punishment than to make him watch that drippy movie. Tho' back in the days I had my fair share of watching it, too.
....hopefully final round of injuries ...Kinda makes me wish for all this pain and hurt to end. WAIT! No not being serious. Some demon must have possessed me while typing that sentence. CHRISTO. Nope gone already, must be floating around somewhere still though. Maybe should check on my guinea pigs if one of them starts plotting to take over the world! NEVER consider to stop writing about hurt!Dean, PLEASE.
...something else was wrong, he just didn‘t know what yet.... yeah, Mark. Check his stitches near his downstairs brain! Good instincts , way to go Doc.
OK, one more at least. Maybe I'll make it to the last one 2nite. I'll definitely try. Cheers, Ilka

Helen! Took some time to finish. Finally got there. So here goes my second review tonite. I loved this chapter, Dean opening up, Sam spilling his secrets and this evil doc relishing in Dean's anguish to come.
....physically still in one piece.... Oh god. What about his soul? He is such a broken man in many aspects.
.....Yeah, I think I may have slipped while I was trying to shave.....What were you trying to shave, your armpits.... HILARIOUS. In the middle of a chick-flick, nearly life-threatening situation they start cracking. Though only on the surface. The irony seeps through... Still I laughed at that.
....He’d hurt Sam, and hurt him bad.... Well, there he goes again. Always torturing himself, searching the blame for everything within himself. Dean is so great with his self-loathing. Makes me wanna stand up and shake him, to make him see reason. And the thought that it is Sam he hurt so bad must be nearly intolerable for big bro.
....he couldn’t stop the tremors that had been plaguing him ..... Shit. Withdrawal. Can't imagine Dean's fingers actually shaking. He always seems so sure and in control. This must be terrifying for him.
....the barrage of questions fuelled by his own raw emotions...... Such a wonderful, brilliant way to describe his opening up. Very poetic, Helen. Read that line several times just to feel and experience them in my heart and soul.
.....protect you somehow like you‘re always protecting me.... Sweet Sam here. Trying to live up to big bro's example. Gotta love him. Struggling to show his affection for Dean.
.....Dude, you send Christmas cards.... Ha. Yeah, Sam seems the type, doesn't he? Very authentic exchange between Dean and Sam. Like that.
.....how much damage he‘d actually done to himself..... Knew you'd be getting there. You are really evil, you know that? Just the thought of Dean's private parts being mangled. Unthinkable and painful...
....his Trish for few days.... God. Now he really has something hellish in store for poor Julia. Can't wait to read 'bout that.
Helen, thank you for this chapter. Will move on quickly to the next bit. Hugs, Ilka
Ok, don't know how I missed this one and the ones that followed. Sorry!!
That review totally sums up both boys in a nutshell. Thank you for it! I've read it twice now and will probably read it again and again!!
