Go ahead and make me cry.
Great job, I too felt there was something missing from that episode and I'm glad you expounded on that.

Wow, I love this. Every aspect of it is so well-written, from both Dean and Sam's points of view.

Loved this story. I agree. That episode really bothered me too. Sam devastated, Dean devastated. They were both so believable it was amazing. Which I find in every episode. They play off each other so well you actually believe the brother relationship. Thanks so much for writing. Now that I've discovered you I'm going to go back and read your other stuff! Thanks!

Great fic, you were so in tune with their emotions during that time. Could so imagine Sammy trying to drown his sorrows and wondering if he wanted to live with Dean pushing him away and Dean's reaction was spot on. A really good read, thanks.

Wow, too emotional and too cute story. Boy I love ELAC spoiler. This episode always makes me cry. This story is perfect for Sam and Dean's emotion. Really, you did a great job.

Great tag. I always felt bad for Sam, too, with the fact that John basically shoved him away at the hospital and then said a somewhat good-bye to Dean
Loved Sam feeling like he was the Bad Seed and wondering if his Dad would have made the deal for him, too.
Loved how the dust took both their tears and concealed them.
Liked that you had them both needing to feel physical pain with the knife and the slamming of the head into the car. Then how the two of them felt the same losses.
Loved "what were you thinking, you asshole? And I'm gonna kick your ass..."

OMG what an awesome story have how Sammy went on a downward spiral when he felt he lost everything including Dean because his brother was hollering at him too-not being the pillar that he needed. How sad to think that Sammy wanted to die because his world had crumbled around him!

"A tear rolled down his face and dropped to the ground, quickly disappearing to nothingness in the dust. Evaporated." my favorite line :) nice job.

man, oh man, oh man. this so far is the best! loved the sam angst. I agree that after that ep, there needed to be more, but man, you hit is right on the head. LOved it!

What an incredibly painful fic. I don't know which pains me more: Sam's feelings or Dean finding Sam like that. Both sections-Sam drinking his own guilt/pain away and Dean later finding him-were quite the gutpunch. For being your first time writing a tag, I think you did an excellent job. :)

This episode begged for more. Dean's face at the end, the utter heartbreak in his eyes... it was just too much! Thanks for writing this. Always enjoy the brotherly angst. And you put just the right amount in there.

Oh, Caroline. This is such a deeply moving story. I don't think I've read anything else that directly extends the storyline from one of the TV episodes as well as this does. It is so very much in need. Kripke left a huge gap and you have filled it.
I don't know what you go through when you write, if you pour your own emotion onto the page. I feel nearly exhausted, completely emotionally drained, just having read it.
No, I did not cry. Real men don't. Right? Well there is enough of the realist in me to remind me we're talking about fictional characters here, BUT you brought me as close to real tears as anything I've ever read. You took me down into the deep self-pity and sorrow Sam experienced after walking away from Dean. You had me feeling the torment that Dean was going through after he smashed his car.
I could feel Sam's emptiness, Dean's too, and in the end you had me feeling Dean's resurging strength. Long ago, I was an older brother. You helped me remember what that was like. Phil

Just when I thought I'd done all the crying I could ever do after ELAC, I read this and the sheer devastation that those boys have endured hits me all over again. Without each other, they are lost. And, damn, you captured my exact reaction to Dean's expression as Sam opens his heart to him. That scared me. Really scared me! Sam is strong, but is he strong enough to deal with everything that he has been through. Their mother, Jess, his abilities (whatever they are), the demon admitting it has a plan for him and now JOhn's death. How much can one person take before they crack. Dean is the only thing that keeps Sam sane... and that lack of anything from his brother gave me cold chills.
I want to believe that Dean will be there for Sam because if he's not then this story of yours could become a reality in the most awful, awful of ways.
Going away to cry anew new. Thank God for a new ep tonight. I hope and pray that we get some indication from Dean that he's there for his little brother. That scene in the trailer gives me hope!
Thanks so for this! It's a splendid, if not heart-wrenching, tag for an amazing ep.
