jai guru deva om: master post  

Title: Jai Guru Deva Om
Characters: Dean Winchester, John Winchester, and a dash of Bobby Singer.
Genre: Gen-fic: Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Pre-Series
Length: 109k words total (approximate)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language, adult themes, drug use
Spoilers: None
Summary: Feeling abandoned by his family, an emotionally vulnerable Dean investigates a strange commune alone.  With Sam at Stanford and John off the grid, help seems unlikely when the young hunter falls under the influence of the group’s charismatic leader.
Notes: Stanford Years Fic set during the spring/summer between Sam’s first and second year at school.  The story is extremely Dean-centric.

My Betas: My most sincere thanks go out to tifaching, emmessann, and nong_pradu for their superb beta work.  I also want to thank my buddies who kept me company and read the story as I wrote it, giving me feedback and guidance along the way.  Thanks Numpty, jpgr, Ginger, and suepokorny.

Sorry for shouting but I'm so happy to see this, I'm afraid I'll have to wait for the complete fic before I read it, but then again the posting schedule is very regular so maybe I won't :)

Right?! I totally understand. LOL. I'm that way, too. I like to dive in and have the ability to read until I hate myself when I look at the clock. No matter how you choose to consume the story...I sincerely hope you enjoy it! /hugs!!

Wow, I am LOVING this so far! Poor Dean... me gots a bad feelin' about what further trouble that guy's going to get into.... can't wait for next Monday! You've got me hooked... :P

Re: YAY!
Scarlett! Yay! I'm so glad you're here, and I'm super glad you're enjoying the story.

Nawwwww....you know...I wouldn't be worried about Dean getting into trouble. I mean, sure, he's gonna be investigating a freakish cult all on his own, but you know...what could go wrong?


Yeah, on second thought...your gut feeling is probably spot on. Eep!

Thank you so much for the comment. I'm thrilled you're reading. Can't wait to see your next video (you are making one...right? RIGHT?!). I try to tell everyone I know about your talent. Amazing artist, you.

Re: YAY!
Hehe, yeah, no WAY will Dean get into trouble. I mean that man is known for staying out of it... right? RIGHT?

Ahhh! Anxiously looking forward to your next chapter! You've totally got me. Hehe.

Aww, thank you so much! Oh, I'm sure there will be another vid... I've got a few ideas brewing. ;)
