Chapter 1


"Oh, hello there"

"Nice weather today, eh?

"I wouldn't know, not much for weather"

"I'm sure if you looked up, you could form an opinion"

"No, just not one for it"

"Well, alright then"



"I think I might be dead"

"That's quite the conversation starter"

"Well, think about it"

"I did, and you can't be dead"

"Why not?"

"Because I'm not dead"

"Are you sure?"

"Most certainly"

"How would you know?"

"Because I know, or at least I hope so"

"So you don't know?"

"Not really, but if being dead is a feeling, and I don't feel it, it stands to reason that I'm not dead"

"What if you're just a really stubborn dead person?"

"Dead people can't be stubborn"

"Have you met any dead people?"

"I've met people before they were dead"

"Were they quite disagreeable?"

"Not particularly"

"Then there you go"

"I still think I can't be dead"

"Well then, what if you aren't, but I am?"


"Well, say I was dead, and was talking to you, that's possible"

"If I were at the station and you were on the train, would you be able to converse with me?"

"... If I were at the door before the train took off"

"...Well, you got me there"



"If I do turn out to be dead, what is there to do about it?"

"Nothing, you're dead, that's what being dead is"

"... Seems like a waste of time"

"More like punishment for it"

"How do you figure?"

"How did you live your life?"

"To be honest, it still feels like I'm living it"

"Life had to continue for you. Your normal life isn't saturated enough, not enough in there to call it a full bottle, so what's left to do but to never close the cap?"

"You know a lot for a living person"

"who knows, maybe I am dead, like you said before"

"That would be a right shame"

"No, why know more about the dead than the living, if they don't care to listen?"

"... I'm listening"

"But will you remember?"

"I suppose not, if I'm dead"


"I think, if I were alive, we could've been friends"


"Would you have liked that?"

"I don't know. What's there to be friends about?"

"... So what shall we depart as?"

"... Let's depart as just people, neither friend nor foe, just two people"


"I'm sorry, I didn't quite catch that"


"As it should, as it should"

precious_passenger: I've read this story on and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Caitlin E. Jones: Beautifully constructed and verse-like, this novel is as poetic as it is intelligent. The story's world is spellbinding and realistically put in ways, drawing from a "Game of Thrones"-like darkness around the main character's life. His surrounding cast is so dynamic and memorable, all without clu...

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.
