Hi, umm. This is just a quick review from someone who really doesn't matter in the scheme of things but I thought I'd let you know.

Your writing is wonderful; characterisation, plotlines, oc's etc are well thought out. You show without telling when it comes to these issues.

With the religious overtones, it's much more blatant. As I said, I am just one person, and I think you are beyond talented with the writing side of things. It's just, I am a bit, make that a lot, surprised that you didn't include a warning for religious content on the series as a whole. With the angels/demons storyline from canon, some religious and religious theology is expected, I was just taken aback at the preachy, 'Christianity is the only way' idea that you have as a back support through your stories.

As a neo pagan of the Earth religions, it was a bit of a slap in the face.

Anyway. My two cents. Feel free to delete this comment from your masterpost, although I am serious about maybe a warning. Or if you don't like the connotations of the term, perhaps an authors note.

Thanks for taking the time to write this anyway. I do enjoy seeing the boys get a home that understands them.

Love and kisses

Thank you for your kind words about our writing. You did have a valid point about the authour notes, which we have added.

No offense was taken, and your comment will stand. (And if I sound grumpy, I do apologise. It is not from anything you said.)

Hey, guys. I just have to put in my atheistic two cents on the religious content in one of the bast fanfic series I've ever had the joy to read, and read again...and again...and again... Like the movie Near Dark, this fiction piece is so good, so enjoyable that one aspect that would normally annoy the heck out of me and possibly ruin the whole thing becomes a very minor, almost unnoticed, blip. (I mean, curing vampirism with just a simple blood transfusion. Come on! Oh, but it's Near Dark...okay. Great double feature with it's year-mate The Lost Boys.)

Seems like every couple of months I find myself coming back to read one little part I remember fondly and end up reading the whole story. And loving it all over again. Thanks so much for all the work and time you've put into this. It's much appreciated. The girls Christianity just seems like part of the story and doesn't seem preachy to me at all. Hope there are more stories in the future. I have strung them all in one file, ready to be printed out at any time and put into a binder in my bookcase. Keeping it in more than one form lessens the chance of losing it.

Thank you so much--both for this comment and for your continued support! As for more, stay tuned....

This story really is awesome!

I loved it. Thank you. It was a lovely change to read some Christian based fanfiction.

I really like this series. I like the Christian perspective and how the boys have a relatively normal life and are still kick-ass hunters. I hope to see more stories in this series. Thank you for making PDF's for those of us with e-readers.

The PDF link to Understanding leads to Living History and the PDF link for Road rushing... leads to Understanding. Please fix the links.

Re: Understanding
Ah, thanks for the heads-up! Both links are now fixed.

I`v seen SPN the last years. In my naitive language are only step 1-5.
I know it is only a fic.,but for me it feels wrong to say God don`t care anymore. Only two angels (Castiel and Gabriel)care and love there.
Thank you for find a other view!
San Antonio Roseramblin_rosie on November 3rd, 2012 04:31 am (UTC)
Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) We agree; it does feel wrong to say God doesn't care.

San Antonio Roseramblin_rosie on August 14th, 2014 01:45 pm (UTC)
Re: Great Stories !
Thank you so much! :)
As far as EPUBs go, I'm not sure--I don't currently have a program like InDesign that will save the files directly as EPUBs. I guess I need to see if Calibre will convert the PDFs. That may take a while, though, since my schedule's about to get very busy for the rest of the year. So you may want to look into Calibre for yourself if you'd rather have the conversions sooner than later.

Re: Like!
Thank you! :) More is in the works, but as busy as we both are, we can't promise how soon anything will get finished.

I have really enjoyed this series. It was really fun to read what could have happened in Supernatural. Hope you write more someday.
San Antonio Roseramblin_rosie on September 10th, 2016 03:51 am (UTC)
Sorry for being so very slow to reply! But thank you for reading, and we hope to get back to it eventually; there are more stories we want to tell. :)

Amazing Story!
Thank you so much for this story. I have read it so many times, and I am sure that I will continue to do so for many years to come.

As a committed Christian, it is just a delight to find an unashamedly Christian fanfiction story. You have both done an amazing job of taking the Supernatural world and engaging with it in a Christian way - bravo!
