I really enjoyed this. Great twist to the story. I was enjoying the cute high school romance but looking back it was just a little too good to be true. Great misdirection with the security guard.

Poor Sam. He never was going to get away from the hunting.

*beams* I'm so glad. And that "looking back" realization was exactly what I was going for, so it's lovely to know it worked.

Poor Sam, indeed. I felt quite mean, putting him through all this.

Wow, this story was fantastic. I was really enjoying the niceness of this Sam - he's young, not yet sure of his power - and thinking Clare was just right for him, and then you threw me for a loop. Beautiful job.

p.s. I need more Sam at the prom stories! 'Tis the season!

Thank you ever so much. And I quite like that description of this Sam. :)

Thank you!

And that is a fabulous icon.

Actually, thank you for sharing. I'm currently "working" my way through your other SPN-stories. I just love the brotherly banter.

Re: the icon. Thanks. I like it, too. Love at first sight :)

And thank you for taking the time to comment and tell me -- it's always lovely to know that someone is reading and enjoying.

Sam and Dean are too much fun to write. :)

I really enjoyed this! Your Sam voice is right on the mark, and I enjoyed this glimpse into his earlier life.

Thank you, dear. It was my first attempt at keeping up a sustained Sam voice (Dean will keep taking over), so I'm very glad it worked! *HUGS*

But... if tricksters are impolite enough to go and erase memories, then Dean wouldn't know if he'd encountered one before - would he? Of course, if he had, and still didn't know, then that's equivalent to not having - other than surviving, of course - so all's well. Yeah, that sentence made sense when I wrote it. Good thing I don't write all that often. ;)

Absolutely LOVED this. As Julie Andrews sings, I must've done Something Good. Listened to Kansas on my drive this evening after reading. Wanted Sam to get the security guard to help him tidy books by assuring him no one would assume the same of him helping Sam out... but that sorta violated Rule#2, which means you kept the Sam voice! Go, you! Also was terribly gleeful with the relative scream analysis and the relative unhelpfulness of Dean's lack of screaming.

Ahem. In case my sleepy-time ramblings is hard to parse: nicely done.

I was kind of deliberately vague on how much Clare erased -- it clearly wasn't everything. And I intended it to be something they had to choose to do, not an automatic memory wipe. So Sam does not remember anything about tricksters, or having encountered one, at the end of this story. And Dean didn't encounter her, so neither does he.

Thank you. I'm very proud of this one.

Also, I sent you an e-mail this evening. Let me know if it got lost in the internet ether. :)

I have just found a new great author to read! Happiness!

This bit:
“And don’t do anything in the backseat I wouldn’t do.”
“What does that leave, exactly? A full-scale production of a Broadway musical?”

You write brother snark just perfectly!

Going to see if you have more stories!

Thank you so much!

As I suspect you have seen, yes, I do have more stories. :) I am not terribly prolific, but everything turns up in this journal when it's done.

“Yeah? And what lesson was that? Check and make sure the girl who’s flirting with me isn’t some kind of monster before I go out with her?”

Yess! please Sammy, learn that lesson. along with, If a girl offers you her blood to drink, please say no. :)


I love this story its amazing :D

Thank you; I'm very glad you liked it.

And, yes, poor Sam needs to learn that one. He possibly even needs the remedial lessons in that. *pats him*

Very nice! I liked Claire...and never figured out that she was too good to be true until she WAS too good to be true. :)

Dust in the Wind though. *shiver* I've always hated that song.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! And that's just how I wanted people to react to Claire, so I'm glad to hear that.

I've never liked "Dust in the Wind," either. :)

Thank you for reading!
