Red - Chapter Three/New Best Friend

Oct 15, 2006 12:58

Summary: Something evil is killing treeplanters in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, possibly the same predator that Dean narrowly escaped years before. How Grimm will things get before the brothers figure it out?

Obligatory Blahblah: One day, Kripke will realize that I’ve been feeding him the best story ideas that money can buy…like, for no ( Read more... )

Oh. My. God.

I am so creeped out, and so incredibly impressed with this. Your visuals are so stunning, so descriptive. Damn near perfect. I'm right there in the truck with Dean on the way up the mountain. Right there on the mountain with Sam and his poor, abused fingers and feet. And, damn, right there in that cafe, when the wolf comes in. And later, in the camp with Lori, and trying not to remember, and oh, hell, Dean, REMEMBER!! Damn, Damn, Damn...I've got goosebumps, and not the shitty kind. *g*

Kripke!! Pay attention!! There's GOLD here! GOLD!!

( I also love your description of what Dean could do with a chainsaw, cause...uh, Bloodlust. Yikes, you are clairvoyant.)

You're making me blush.

I squealed like a little pink pig when Dean used the chainsaw in Bloodlust. I'm surprised you didn't hear me -- cause I'd already written it and now I'm checking all my closets and under my bed for Kripke. Goddamn man's making me paranoid.

Yesssssssssss.
I love the absolute overwhelming and utterly creeped-out reaction that certain people have to this...person. People. Heh.

And Sam didn't quite hit 1000 trees...and Dean saying 'it's all true' and the insane driving and the flashbacks, dear gods, that *both* of them make me want to cuddle the boys and tell Dean it's *okay* he doesn't have to do this by himself and...Sam's a book-thief now! and...and....

I luff this story.
:)
Muchly.

Oh, the insane driving. I haven't been out with loggers, but I've been out with fishermen and it's all the same, just one swerve away from a lifetime (er, 'deathtime'?) being known as 'that girl who died in the Cobra with those smelly boys.'

And, yeah. Sammy the Book-Thief. Fate worse than death for the little guy.

The research! That's what really sets you apart from the other brilliant SPN fanfic writers - I love it! And specific to Red, lovin' the back story here ... and the other back story ... oh Dean! (Not that I'm not a Sam fan too, but apparently it's Dean's turn to make my heart ache.)

And a special thanks to you and all writers who take the time to proof and beta (bless you!) and give us nice long chunks! I'd rather be patient and wait for something like this, than the too-short error-prone installments you sometimes see from others. So thanks again to you AND your betas!

Jeez, thanks. And I'll thank the betas, because really, really, really, it's so much better because of them.

This did take some time, next one faster, I hope. I don't have a vacation in the middle of it, anyway.

Well, Jesus two-stepping Christ, this is getting even tenser, if such a thing is possible. So the shark back in 92 was Ludovic in 97, and I'm betting Lukas in the here-and-now. ::shudders:: I don't even know what he IS and he scares the flipping shit out of me. And Oh, Dean, remembering in 97 what happened in 92, whatever that was, and Dean today not knowing that Sam's WITH THIS GUY.

I have a feeling that I'm going to need a trip along the Whiskey Trail myself before this is over. I'm sending you my bar tab.

Uh, what did you say? I'm getting a little distracted by your fucking icon of Dean on his tummy ON A BED looking over his shoulder with a 'come hither' blance. And...is he wearing pants?

I'm not too sure WHO deserves the bar tab on this one, my dear: Kripke, Jensen, or Lemmypie, for egging me on.

I did of course, mean 'glance', not 'blance'. I'm not too sure what that means. It's the whisky talking, Em.

I'm really enjoying reading this. I love the way you've started to merge the 3 separate time lines and I can't wait to read more!

Yep, they're starting to come together, god help me. Next few chapters will likely make or break this fic. It could all just end up a big steaming pile of bear poo.
