Ask @SQuatchW:

What are some of your favourite memories with Dean?

Him taking me out for fireworks.
Him teaching me to drive and boost cars, before Dad did.
Dean reading to me when I was little, somehow having the patience to read the same stuff over and over because it wasn't like we had a shelf of different books.
Him helping me be tall enough to play the motel arcades. He'd grab phone books, chairs.. whatever. All to let me play Galaga or Pac-Man or Gauntlet.

If you could ask your mother one thing, what would it be?

Also a hard question.
I think I'd ask her to tell me what it was like before I was born, to tell me stories about her and Dean and Dad. That way I could just listen to her talk, and it wouldn't be anything sad.
I don't know why my answers for her and my dad are so different.
Maybe because... I had years and years with him. So there's questions and things to sort through, trying to understand the man I knew. With her, it's pretty much a blank space. So I'd just want.. any time with her at all.

What cities are your favourite and why?

Minneapolis - Surprising amount of culture for a state no one really expects culture from. There's parts of Minneapolis that remind me of Canada. THAT'S how nice it is.
Boulder, CO - Gorgeous country up there. Doesn't have an oppressive CITY feel.
Kansas City, MO - Because it's how real Kansas should be. (Thanks for nothing Governor Brownback.)
Boston, San Francisco, and DC... would have made this list, but I still feel bad that me letting Lucifer out ended up causing earthquakes and tsunamis to hit both. But five years later, they ARE doing a lot better.
Boston & DC.. because of the history. The cradle of our (rapidly disappearing) democracy. Plus, DC has so many museums. (So does NYC, but NYC... can't get on this list. Even with the Hayden. I'd sooner put Philly on this list.)
San Francisco - Time spent with Jess

What's something you've done or accomplished that you're proud of?

Beating Lucifer is the obvious answer. Less obvious...
There's a hunt that always comes to mind for me. We were at a haunted hotel in Connecticut. I managed to dive into the pool and save a little girl. That's always something my mind goes to, I guess.
That girl.. might be in college right now. Or at the very least, graduating high school now. Wow.

What kind of computer do you have?

A custom built rig. Overclocked i5 for a CPU. 16GB of RAM. 1TB HDD. Fedora for an OS, and have a virtual box on a USB. I've been meaning to upgrade for awhile, though. Other things have been on the agenda.
Guess I know what my Vegas winnings are going towards. I have a laundry list of things I could upgrade about this computer. I think the motherboard might be the only thing to stay the same.

Are you surprised Dean made it through the tasks?

Surprised isn't the word I'd use. Ecstatic, maybe.
This is a dangerous job, even when it is just normal salt & burn. Hunters can't ever forget that. The ones that do die quickly.
So it isn't not having faith to think someone could die doing something. That's a reality.
I never thought Dean could never do it. But I was also aware it was a huge risk, just like me taking on Lucifer. But Lucifer.. I did that to fix my mistakes and save the world, and save my brother. This was Dean taking on something huge, with no back-up... just for me. I didn't want him doing it, because I didn't want him taking that risk for me. Especially after the Hydra, when it became abundantly clear Zeus wasn't playing around. Dean's given enough, over and over again. I don't want him giving up his life or his shot at a peaceful afterlife. Not ever again.
But there's no stopping him, especially where family is concerned.
There's no stopping him. Which is pretty much what every god, angel, and monster needs to learn. If you think you can trip up Dean Freakin' Winchester, there's a big risk that you'll be the one eating crow.

What did it feel like to be healed by Zeus's potion?

Strange. It was like being pulled in all directions, felt like it was burning me... and, as much as it had healed, it hurt a lot towards the end. But I suppose that's what happens when your muscles grow significantly over the space of a few minutes.
I'm not about to complain about that. I have my life back, so long as this sticks. I don't have to spend the next year in hardcore training trying to gain the ground I've lost. I've gotten a large portion of it back. That is more than worth that pain to me.

What's the worst motel you've ever stayed in.

Motel...
I forget the name of it, but it was in Alabama...
Blood on the sheets, what I'm fairly sure was chewing tobacco spit in the garbage and sink AND shower, cinderblocks used to hold up one of the beds, spotty electricity, fleas, crumbling ceiling tiles that actually FELL on me, a TV so old it didn't even have a remote -- yes, you had to turn the VHF or UHF dials. (Most of you probably don't even know what that means.)
But keep in mind, sometimes we squat in old abandoned places, with rotting floors, no electricity and no working toilet. At least those places are free.

What's something you'd love to do with Dean but you'll never get the chance to?

Hunt something in the UK. Some old castle ghost.
Why it will never happen? Air travel and dealing with customs with that many weapons. I'd say we could just go there and buy rock salt, easily enough. But guns aren't as common in the UK, and while we could rob a store... They have CCTV there. Cameras EVERYWHERE. Makes it a LOT harder to do a smash and grab and get away with it. Even if you could knock out the MULTIPLE feeds on the street you're on, they could just look at the surrounding streets.
So if I were going to do this, I'd probably do a smash and grab on some guy who hunts for sport and has a house in the country. A lot easier.
...Can you tell I've thought a lot about this?
Anyway. Still. Getting Dean there is unlikely. And by the time we did and managed to secure weapons, some local hunter probably would have snuffed it out.
Plus, I think Dean would lose his mind with people driving on the left side of the road.

What's the hardest part about the last 6 months?

Watching my brother spin out about me while risking his neck over and over, by himself.. for something that could have been just a god screwing with us. To let him walk into Hell for me, alone, goes against everything in me.
Close second is getting tortured over and over again, seeing things, feeling like I was losing my mind.

hey Sam. I was thinking about it earlier, What is your favorite and least favorite habits/traits you got from Dean and your father? I got my father's playfulliness which is good. but I got dad's sweet tooth which isn't good... and my mom I got my looks. Idk what's bad. anyway... -Cealie

Favorite? Being able to press on no matter what.
Least favorite? That thing we all do where we carry the weight of the world? Not fun. And not something any of us know how to turn off.

Are you and Dean closer now than you were as kids?

I'd say so.
The thing is.. when you're kids, you only have so much awareness and understanding of what's going on. When we were little, it was like... two peas in a pod. And then he hit his teens and Dad leaned on him more as a hunting partner too, and he still had my back, but I started pulling away some, just like he started chasing girls. We were figuring out we were different people, and that wasn't easy. He committed to hunting, I wanted nothing to do with that. But we still supported each other, defended each other, right up until the day I left.
Now we're grown ups. We know each other, we respect each other. We pull some crap we shouldn't sometimes, but it's usually because we care. The differences we have aren't differences that pull us apart. We fight sometimes, but we're able to rise above it. We know what's more important.
Time brings understanding that you don't have as kids. And growing up means you have a choice of who you spend your time with. We both know we're making the choice of where to be. And neither of us regret that.
