I loved the insight here. I think you nailed the fact that Sam's leaving was not a betrayal, but something that needed to be done in order for him to be an individual. I do think that Sam struggled with leaving Dean moreso than anything else, partly because I don't think he trusted John to give Dean his full attention on a hunt. My heart aches when I think of how torn Sam must have been about leaving, and your fic sums it up nicely. :)

fabulous! I loved the talk, and the chance to get to know pastor jim. i like thinking that someone was at least proud of him and happy for sam, because it's too sad thinking otherwise. i'd love it if you would write more little conversations like this of him growing up, or maybe something at stanford like jim coming to visit or something.

Loved that. I'm sure Sam must have agonized over his decision to go away to school, and I'd love to think that he did get to talk over the situation with somebody impartial and yet who cared about him. Oftentimes, people ask for advice not because they want to know what to do, but because they've already made the decision and they want somebody they trust to validate the decision. And, aw.

Bravo! Very nice and so very true! I am so happy that someone finally wrote about Sam's leaving as what it really was about and that it was, in no way, a betrayal to Dean. AND that Dean is strong - and while he might resent Sam for being able to leave, not all the time but certainly some times - it would not crush him. Dean is strong.
Yes he would miss his brother but no more or less than Sam would miss him. And in the end, Sam was the one who walked alone while Dean and John walked together.
Thank you for writing this. I will admit, when I first saw it was a talk between Jim and Sam, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't between the brothers, but as I started to read it, I saw it really was about Sam and Dean, Sam and John, and Sam and Sam. And I LOVED your Pastor Jim.
Good job, gal!
