QUOTE:
"What the hell is this?" Sam burst into John's motel room, brandishing a newspaper.

John looked up, confused by the anger in Sam's voice. "What's wrong? Where's Dean?"

"He's getting gas." Sam threw the newspaper at John. "I bought that from the general store. It says there was a fire last night in Palo Alto. How could you not tell me, Dad? These were my friends!"

John opened the newspaper. The fire was headline news. Building destroyed, no survivors. Damn. He looked up at Sam, whose expression still demanded answers.

"Son, all I knew was that there was a fire. I didn't know anyone died."

"You're lying!"

Sam looked at him, just looked, and John was suddenly airborne. He slammed into the wall, cracking the glass of a picture hung there, and slid to the floor. John tried to push himself away from the wall, but couldn't move. John's mouth was dry with fear. Fear of his own son. He met Sam's eyes, fully expecting to see them coal-black, but they were human eyes. No demonic black, nor any sign of the yellow-gold glow Dean thought he'd seen before.


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
The final part! After the previous events Dean and John find now out what happened to Sam.

Once again Morgan's take on all the characters is very IC. I love everyone here, especially the relationship between the three Winchesters. But even Jo and Dean's interaction or Bobby and Ellen are described with great care.

The plot gets more complicated in the end and answers a lot of questions, but some are left for the reader to answer. I usually don't like fics that leave you with unanswered questions, but it seems very fitting here.

The sex is very hot! I like how Morgan writes these scenes! There's just the right amount of details to make these scenes so -uhm- special. ;)

All in all is STB a great read with great characterizations and an interesting plot.
