Summary: Dean is a hunter and Sam is sort of a werewolf, but they are determined to stick together and overcome the challenges of the path they have chosen. Their latest problem is the recovery of a cursed mirror from the estate of a deceased hunter. The mirror’s curse doesn't bother Sam, but it stirs up old doubts for Dean as he is reminded that the only thing harder than facing the monsters, is facing yourself.
My plotting buddy and permanent cheerleader,elusive_life_77, has had the usual influence *grins* my stories shift directions based on the lengths of her silences when I float ideas. As slow as I write now, I would write a lot slower without her willingness to review text and constant support. And the zombies. We shoot a whole lot of zombies together too...
caz2y5 - despite battling her way through her SPN J2 BB entry, Caz has been been there to let me bounce (inflict) all sort of rambling fic-related things. It’s a big help to have someone to talk with at 3 a.m. when I’ve been too lazy to go to bed, and I’m always grateful for her company!
I’m also very grateful to rikyu, biteme82, and dimensionallyt. I haven’t posted/written a sequel before and I was concerned about the story’s readability as a stand alone. These guys did me the vastly appreciated favor of combing through the fic and not only making suggestions to fix the stand-alone issues, but also a wide variety of useful suggestions to improve the overall flow and content. Really, so grateful. Thank you!
And last, but never least, my thanks to the mods of spnslash Big Bang, and most especially to smut-slut, who did the fantastic art you see throughout the story! She was wonderful to work with and I’m so happy she claimed this fic! Go check out her page where you can see all of the art in one place! (and all the other great things she has while you are at it!)
