Amazing. This is packed filled with priceless lines and unforgettable gems. I love how you kept them in character and the dialogue was so real but at the same time it was incredibly touching.
I really like how you tell these incredibly emotional stories without the slightest hint of mellodrama. That takes real talent.
Full marks for this one.

I LOVED this.
I want to write every single word down that I just read and send it back to you so you'll know my absolute favorite parts of this story.
Reading "Certainties" first was a VERY good idea, as I was already primed for what's going on in this story.
Poor Sam. It had to be hard for him reliving killing Bobby over and over again.
I loved how he put Dean's shirt on and instantly felt warmer. And then when he went outside and Dean followed with their coats, followed by his defensive 'sudden urge' for air as well... too funny.
Sam snapping at Dean, which sent Dean back into the Motel room was unexpected and appreciated. I LOVE 'real' moments like that. :) And of course the conversation that followed Sams return to the room was heartwarming, and so fantastically well written. You amaze me.
That last phrase of Dean's "That's what I'm here for" was felt by me in pretty much the way Sam felt it... I mean it's one thing if you didn't know what was in store for the two of them, but being as we're on the fourth season now and we now know that Sam was forced to live for months without Dean makes that phrase very sad. :(
Sadness aside, this story has been a terrific read. Thank-you SO much for writing and posting it.

"That's what I'm here for."
How freaking great is that line. This was a wonderful little look at one night in the Winchester's life. So sweet and nicely done.

So, I wanted to watch Mystery Spot before I read this tag, and oh boy, I'm so pleased I read it - tagwise, it's probably one of my favourites. There was a look on Sam's face right at the very end which you've managed to sum up perfectly. You should be very proud of yourself. You do write Sam exceedingly well.
Chocolates for you.

I'm sorry that it has taken me awhile to say thanks for sharing another story with us.
When I saw the author alert, I wanted to write something, but my mind was brain dead after two days of 13 1/2 shifts at work. If the bosses are willing to pay overtime, how can I refuse? Besides I have a goal, well two, first pay some bills, but also attend another Supernatural convention.
I really enjoyed this story. Wonderful job with the brothers and their voices again.
I loved the beginning as Sam put on Dean's shirt. I wondered if Dean would comment on that and he did at the end of your story.
Also I have to smile as Sam thinks he has convinced Dean that he got sick because of the bad food, like he could pull anything over on Dean.
I'm glad that Sam apologized for his comment to Dean to leave him alone when they were both sitting outside.
One of my favorite lines was just the single word, "Sam" - 'The tone was soft, and familiar. It was the voice that said, 'you can tell me anything and I'll still love you.'
I like how you had Sam talk about 'killing' Bobby. That episode had me going for a moment as I wondered if Sam had really just killed Bobby. But I like Dean's reasoning that Sam knew deep down that it was the Trickster and not Bobby, because Sam is a hunter and not evil. "Then trust that I know this is the truth. You are not evil. End of story."
My other favorite spot was when Sam told Dean he would have still saved Dean's life in the episode "Faith", even if he knew about the reaper. I have always believed that too.
Thank you for Dean's words to Sam - I love that big brother.
'Dean was right, that was what he was there for. And if Sam had his way, he'd be there for it many years to come. Whatever it took.'
Thanks for sharing your story with us.
Until next time, take care.

Cool new story!
The whole "Is that my shirt?" was hilarious, lol.
So cute that Sam deliberatly took something of Dean to feel closer to him and safe.
| K Hanna Korossy 4/4/08 . chapter 1
Very sweet conversation. So typical of Dean to go after Sam, and for Sam to realize he needs to talk. And not many people have addressed the whole Bobby thing, so I'm glad to see that. Nice job.

OMG Michaela, pure perfection! Just how can I pick out favourite lines when the whole story can't be faulted! You've been into your wardrobe with the boys again haven't you!
He told himself it was simply the shirt that was making him feel warmer, not the fact it was Dean’s. He wasn’t five years old anymore after all, able to feel safe and secure just from wearing something that belonged to his big brother.
“Dean, what are you doing?”
“Getting some air.”
“What? I can’t get a sudden urge too?”
“So, we gonna sit out here till we catch pneumonia or are you gonna tell me what’s bothering you?”
“You can quit looking so amused, Princess, I just don’t wanna pick your ass up off the floor when you faint.”
“Yes I do! You’re the one who made me who I am, Dean. You’re the one I followed, the one I looked up to. You taught me everything I know, and yeah ok – I was still ‘me’ at Stanford. But that was different. I knew you were still out there, somewhere, at the end of a phone. You weren’t gone, man. Not like you were. Not like you will be.”
Sam closed his eyes briefly then opened them again to meet Dean’s gaze. Before he’d been dragged kicking and screaming into this conversation he’d been afraid of what he’d see there. Of what reaction his confession would prompt. But instead of horror, instead of disgust, all he saw was belief.
“Of course this doesn’t solve everything – I look like I gotta magic wand hidden up my ass?”
“Dude, that was so not a mental image I needed.”
Dean smirked, pleased to see Sam’s mood gradually returning to normal.
Sam glanced down and blushed, having forgotten all about grabbing it in the bathroom at the start of all this.
“Uh, yeah. It was hanging up and I thought it was mine.”
Dean shook his head.
“And here was me thinking you grew out of that when you were fourteen.”
Just a few fantastic lines that just got to me, again you were so inside their heads. Sam having nightmares about stabbing 'Bobby' would be so true to his character and he would have been worrying about it but to scared to voice his fears to Dean scared of his reaction. Loved how you wrote Dean's reaction, giving Sam love and understanding, knowing exactly where he was coming from having been in the same situation.
Awesome finally having Sam answer Dean's question in Faith, that he would have taken Dean to Roy Le Grange even if he had known what was going on. And Dean would have done no less for Sam.
Brilliant all the emotions running through this piece and you leave us with hope, even though we do not know if Dean gets out of the deal yet.
You nailed this hon, saved to favourites and I will print it out so I can read it again and again.
