Review of chapter "Brother's Keeper" from anonyMouse

I read this fic a while back, but because of one thing or another (can't remember) I didn't review it. I've been looking for this for a few days now, so I'm glad I found it again!

I have to say, its still a good read the second time around. I love the interaction between Buffy and Dean, and the fact they still check up on their siblings. Its a little heartbreaking in a way, with the way they're hiding and staying out of the way.

I love this fic! :D

Review of chapter "Brother's Keeper" from (Moderator)Ava
Poor Dean having to let Sammy go but not wanting to at the same time. He's a bigger person than me 'cause if I had my hands on Sam I'd never let him go. Probably for entirely different reason from Dean's (unless Jinni is in a dark dirty mood). I like the idea of Dawn and Sam, they fit for me but now I'm all curious to see where this could go. What happens in four months?

I know that I'm a Buffy/Dean shipper but there I times when I like animosity between then better than the warm fluffy or the hot lusty and this was one of those times. The fact that they annoyed/sized one another felt right and fit in with the tone of this peice.

Plus I want to see if Buffy really would do violence to their persons if something happened to Dawnie. For some reason I'm thinking she'd be able but hopefully Xander or Willow's along to pull her back and focus her on the demon. (That was my tiny/huge hint that I want more from this 'verse)
Comments from author:
I'm kind of a sucker for Dawn and Sam too. I still can't see Buffy and Dean together in a relationship. I see them as working together for a common goal and fighting while doing it. I have more thoughts on this verse, but I'm torn on what to do at a pivitol point. I can't decide whether I want Dawn to survive the fire attack or not. I have two ways I can go with this and I haven't completely determined which would be better. But I do plan to keep it solely from Dean's POV. Getting in his head is hard.

I agree on the holding on to Sam part. ;-) ...and Jinni's dark, dirty moods.

As for Buffy attacking them if something happened... I can't see her going all the way, but, maybe she could... It's worth exploring.

I am almost afraid to ask for a sequel, cause as much as Dawn annoyed me in the series, I don't want her to doe like Jess did.
Love the idea of Buffy abd Dean's informal date thing though, both of them skulking around after their respective siblings. Love it.

I'm glad you enjoyed this and took the time to review.

I actually rushed my ending a bit and marked it as complete to meet the fic-a-thon deadline. I have the actual ending worked out in my head, and not to spoil you or anything, but things work out okay in the end. ;-) Keep an eye out and I'll add the "real" ending hopefully this week.

I've never really seen Dean and Buffy getting together romantically, but I can see them as comrades in arms or something like that. I think they can bond over their respective non-spoken love for their younger (yet taller) siblings.

It's kinda sad. I feel so sorry for Dean. Dean always look out for Sam. Who's look out for Dean then. Beautiful fic.

Maybe I better finish it with what I originally intended to do cause I don't want it to be completely sad. I rushed my ending a bit to meet the fic-a-thon deadline.

Thanks again and keep an eye out for more even though I marked it as complete.
