Ladies, sorry I didn't post on the other chapters, but I was in a hurry to read the next one. YOUR fault, not mine, for making it so interesting.

Can't WAIT to hear what Anna is gonna say to John! That'll be one good fight. If she thought the one earlier was rough, just wait until this one! Also, I like her resentment toward Dean (not that I think she's necessarily right to feel it). I think that seems true to life with "step-mothers and stepsons". I know Dean is a grown man, but people are WEIRD about their parents. And I like that John is being respectful of that.

I loved the research stuff Anna had ... thought it was funny that she was doing Sam's job. I always like the "lore" stuff.

Really liked all the detail with the cave drawings. Creepy! And the sense of guilt John felt for not "finishing" 20 years ago was cool, too. I like it when the Winchesters are human and not superhuman.

Please, oh, please can I have someone look at me like John and Dean look at their respective women? Yum. Their glances are so powerful, I can almost FEEL them.

Next chapter? Soon?

No worries on not commenting ... it makes us feel all "squeee" inside that you like it to smuch you only want to get to the next part as soon as you can! :o)

That smoldering Winchester gaze is ... day-um. Is there a word in any language to describe how incredibly *gasp* and *gulp* and *whew* their gazes are? *fans self*

Putting more up today - promise!

*refuses to take the blame*

I should probably admit I'm a stepmother so I'm VERY familiar with the resentful-of-new-wife syndrome...

I think the cave drawings were mostly Heath's idea...I might have added painting them in blood but I totally snaked her idea. Funny, she didn't seem to mind being snaked. *giggle*

As to powerful glances...working on it. *grin*

Aha, so that's the psychology behind writing Anna's frustration!

I'm not a stepmother, but I have one. It's funny. She wasn't my favorite person when I was growing up (I didn't hate her and I didn't live with her, though), but now I'd almost rather have her around than my dad. She's absolutely great! So if you are having issues with the stepkids, perhaps that might give you hope! (well, not immediate hope, I suppose, but eventual).

Just to be clear, I think Dean's reaction to Anna is right on target for his character. I did NOT just put it in so I could explore stepmother issues. Now that it's there though it's great fun! *grin*

My own stepchild is an adult and is still working on reestablishing a relationship with her father after cutting him off years ago. I hold out no hope or expectation for myself...but if she wants to be a positive part of our lives at some point I am more than open to it. It's her choice though and I'm certainly not going to push her.

Sorry, Suk. I'm sure it's very difficult to be a stepmom, but I'm glad she's trying to reestablish a relationship with her father at least.

I've been a stepchild (two different sides) since I was in 5th grade, so it's pretty much a normal way of life for me! Maybe that's why I have little baggage to go with it.

Here's hoping for positive changes in 2008!

I'm a stepchild on both sides too. Big deal, right? My stepdaughter's issues arise mainly from her relationship with her own mom and her wish to be treated like the most important person in the universe. Not.happening.

Honestly her attitude doesn't bother me. It did a long time ago but she's only punishing herself and I come from such a messed up family that I have MUCH experience with people having to grow up before they realize what asses they've been.

So the wait continues... LOL
