Must. Read. This. Based on summary, I must read. Now. Will do so and report back.

First, the art:

It's really pretty! (Also: watercolor artists are f--king brave, man.) To me, cat!Dean looks more Deanish than teen!Sam looks Sammish (either JP or CF-flavor, and I must say that in my weecest I prefer to visualize, if I must, mysteriously deaged JP than CF because yes I am weird like that). But Dean-cat is wearing the Samulet! And has bright green eyes! And IS A NOT-SO-SECRET GINGER! <333

Anyhow, the art is all very sweet, even if -- beware the evol nitpicking reviewer -- what looks like it's supposed to be mid-teens Sam so presumably around 1997 or 1998 is using a cellphone that does not look large or black enough to be a Nokia brick in one of the pieces.

The fic:

It's written kinda clunkily (lotsa telling, some schmoop, etc.) but also has some real sweetness.

The plot: for reasons not to be explored at this juncture Dean alone is apparently a werecat who likes to spend most of his free time in cat form. And doesn't like Sam petting him while he's feline, for reasons that do get explored at this juncture. (Hint: he likes it.)

I'd have liked the story more if it were, well, tauter and more adeptly written; possibly at about half the length it is now or maybe with the potentially more interesting option of being gen instead of Sam/Dean.

But hey, it's short and features Dean as a cat getting dubcon scritched and reluctantly purring, what more do we want, really? (Besides canon FIREMAN'S CARRY ALREADY, obviously.)

The art and the story are matched perfectly in this one. Lovely dreamy watercolors for the art that were beautiful to look at, and a comfortable relaxing weekend of a story to go with it. I can't overstate how much I enjoyed this fic. It was a nice and low-key pick-me-up of a read.

Dean in this fic has always been capable of turning into a cat, but he's got all of these rules about no petting or touching when he's in his cat form. Teen!Sam finds the rules hard to abide by. He wants to pet Dean the way you do when there's a gamboling cat around and you're not allergic. One day he pets Dean absent-mindedly, and Dean starts to purr.

It is a Sam/Dean fic, but in a PG, slow and sweet way.
