This was a beautiful description: "They're on a lonely stretch of highway, dark and fathomless as the ocean, nothing to illuminate the night except for the pale yellow glow of the Impala's headlights, obstinately pushing back against the void."
And I loved this: "The only thing I know that I do get to choose - is you. I get to choose you." Sam's voice fades to a sleepy murmur. "To stick around and worry about you and be a pain in your ass. You can't ask me not to worry. It doesn't work that way."
Great fic, very well-written. I loved the end.

Sam conjugating Latin cracked me up far more than it had a right to. Double awesome. :)
Loved the brothers in this - their relationship was spot on.
Great job with the medical stuff too; completely believable without ever sounding like a textbook.
This is one of those moments I wish we could have seen played out on screen.

Nice job. I think you did an amazing job tapping into their fragile psyche's after that episode. Both on edge, both trying to deal with their own pain without putting an extra burden on the other. Both needing some kind of relief and not knowing how to get it. My heart is still thumping hard in my chest. I felt panic for Dean when he realized that Sam was in surgery and he hadn't been there to cajole and support him through it. I loved the end too. Just in that quiet conversation in the dark, it seems that they are starting to breathe again. Sam letting himself worry about Dean and feeling relief that Dean is still there taking care of him, and Dean realizing that Sam needs the protection and love that he needs to give. Time. Time and each other will get them through it. Very well done.

Awesome oneshot. I can just picture the look on Dean's face when that nurse told him that Sam was in surgery since Dean thought it was just a simple sprain!

I just came across this story- I love searching back through months of all the fics posted here and finding one that grabs at something within me. I really love this fic. I love the imagery and the way you've painted both brothers. I normally don't find many Dean-centric fics I like, but this was perfect. You've got a great writing style and it flows along nicely. Great work here :)

So well written. Both Dean and Sam - but I loved the sharp little Dean observations. I liked it when Sam recited the Latin, and of course, Dean's response. The ending was a real killer. And maybe that would be enough . . .

I have read different tags for this episode. Yours was well written.
I loved your descriptions of the brothers, the details, Dean just driving and the ending of your story at the motel. Not many conversations between the brothers, it was like we were just watching the different scenes that appeared before us.
I can understand Dean not wanting to enter the ER. Though by dropping Sam off, it did show he knew his brother and him would be OK apart.
Though Dean hustling pool and than losing the fight afterwards was not part of the plan.
Sam would be trying not to worry or stress Dean, thinking he was having fun, not knocked out in an alley, so it is possible he wouldn't tell Dean about the surgery until it was over. Wonder if he would of told Dean if they had met back at the motel. I'm not sure Sam would of been able to hide it from Dean face to face, the brothers seem to know if one is lying or not. Dean would of been worried about any surgery.
I really enjoyed the ending when the brothers were back at the motel.
My favorite lines of Sam's were "The only thing I know that I do get to choose - is you. I get to choose you."
Than Dean thinking - "he has Sam. And Sam needs him. And he needs Sam."
Thank you for sharing your story with us.
