Re: spn_reversebang: [3012] Untitled by alwaysawkward [gen, PG-13]

Dean didn’t care about the particulars, having had enough of troublesome families of his own. His mom had died in a house fire when he was young, his father had then turned into a man hell-bent on taking his revenge on the man who’d killed his wife, while Sam, Dean’s brother, had distanced himself from the whole family and was now working as some kind of a law-man in California. Dean had always thought it ironic that at least one of them had turned out right in the end.

Is the only mention of Sam in this fic. :/

The story's only 4k.

Every D/C fic that doesn't devote at least 4k to Sam's inner thighs and his strong back must needs have been written by an ESH.

So? Other than being styled round Butch & Sundance what's the story about? Is it any good? The writing sample you've provided certainly looks like the author can turn a phrase. Your trollishness is uncalled for and petty.

Nonnie was giving useful information about the lack of Sam in the fic. If that's not useful to you, read the fic yourself and report back.

It might be something to bring up in a canon-based fic, but it's kind of a weird thing to mention (when it's the *only* thing mentioned) in an AU fic.

I don't see it as weird. AU or not, when it comes to D/C fic I personally like knowing how much Sam is in it. If it's only passing mention (like this) I'm probably not going to read it.

Considering the prompt - Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid coming here to whine about the lack of Sam in a short D/C piece is nothing more than pointless, pathetic whining. Critique involves actually judging the piece on its merits and writing style. In something like this 'lack of Sam' is a given.

If you don't like being called out on petty BS don't kick up a stink. It'd be like someone going to a Dean/Lisa or Sam/Gabriel and wondering where the Hell Sam or Dean were?

This, basically. The prompt is basically Dean and Cas, and it you focus too much on Sam, you get TFW gen. For a fic >10k, having Sam skydive is okay.

ayrt

Once again: fic discussion does not have to match your criteria. The anon felt that the absence of Sam in this fic was something to comment on and that's been useful to at least two people in helping them to decide whether or not to read it. If that's not helpful information for you, no-one is stopping you from reading and critiquing however you want.

I'd feel the same about a Dean/Lisa or Sam/Gabriel fic, fwiw. Go on, tell me I'm ~reading it wrong~.

I don't believe for one second that you read either Dean/Lisa or Sam/Gabriel. You're way too rigid for that.

I would! \o\ (though someone is going to have to be a creature in D/L. My tastes demand it.)
