Oh the feels.
I still am wondering who called Sam and prompted him to leave months ago. It could be Azazel luring him out; or a psychic like Missouri or one of the other demon children, or one of the Winchesters from the future, trying to prevent Jessica's death. Or...an angel. But from the author notes it sounds like you wrote this in season 2, before angels arrived.
I like the mystery.
Come on, big brother Dean, help Sammy and make everyone better. ;)

I thought Dead Sam was a shifter, the story is following Show's timeline. I actually was surprised that Dean just accepted his brother's death outright, but it is a better read this way, seeing the trio muddle through grief and epiphany.
Oh, I desperately hope they get to talk to Sam, maybe reunite in Lawrence.

I am intrigued by this plot, I haven't read anything like it. It's powerful coming from Jessica's POV, not Sam's or Dean's
I like the raw energy, the mess that everyone is. Jessica isn't a simpering damsel but she doesn't slip easily into the family business. Dean and John aren't suave and gallant, and although Dean (even John) is trying to get along with Jess, nobody is comfortable.
I appreciate how Dean and Jess are increasingly enmeshed as the days wear on in pursuit of Sam. Never romantic - thank goodness - and often jealous or resentful or irritated, but no one else can ever join their orbit of Sam, not even John. They are lost together, and both Dean and Jessica are drawing strength from the other's relentlessness.

This story. Was so freaking stressful. I just couldn't wait to get back and read it. I had several heart attack throughout but my goodness was it all worth it. EVERYTHING ENDED UP BEING OKAY AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED HOW JESSICA WAS IN THIS TOO. Sam might still be a little scrambled but my goodness it all worked out

Just read the whole thing!
I really wish this was the cannon, seeing how this is possibly the best happy ending for everyone.
Thanks for the wonderful story! :)

I don't know if you still receive notifications from this site, but I wanted to know just how very impressed I am with this story. You write wonderfully - clearly and imaginatively. I was thoroughly engrossed by the plot and by the characters you gave such compelling voices to. You let the tale play out in its own time and the result was a truly emotionally rewarding experience. Thank you, I will look for you on LiveJournal.

Amazing. No words to describe this. Second time reading it, worth every word.

They found Sam! Yes! Finally!
I love everything about this story so far, but I'm terrified now because there's still 13 chapters left oh god...

Holy Chuck this chapter is amazing!
I can't wait to keep reading!

Dude, I CANNOT believe you ended the story this way. I just-that's not-I can't believe-ugh! You ended the story this way! How could you?! This was-is-AWESOME. And I was beginning to understand what was happening, and you ENDED THE STORY THIS WAY! How could you end the story this way?! Oh my God, I can't believe you ended the story this way. I mean, HOW COULD YOU?! That was just-just-how can you-AH! CRUEL! THERE'S JUST GOT TO BE SOME KIND OF RULE THAT CANNOT ALLOW YOU TO END THE STORY THIS WAY!
Sam's back, he's back, and you END IT THIS WAY. He's back. Oh my God he's back maybe thinking like he time-travelled or something I dunno but he's back he's back he'sbackhe'sbackhe'sback. Oh my God, he's back, and the story's done. The story's done. HE'S NOT GONE ANYMORE! HE'S NOT GONE ANYMORE! He's not gone anymore. I can't believe you ended the story this way. I just-oh my God, I can't.
You have no idea how much I want to reach into the screen and grab you by the collar through the magicky-wormhole-spacey-thing I call the Awesome Internet and demand you to tell me more. *Pulls hair out and paces the room restlessly*
*Later gives in, sits down, leg shaking with agitated energy, and stares at the screen* I can't believe you ended the story this way.

Literally my all time favorite fan fiction.

I've come to the belief after five paragraphs that this is the definitive Jess story. Her characterization is superb and I like that it is written in her voice. Her screen time in the pilot episode was brief but one got the feeling that she would have been the perfect counterpart for Sam had she lived. Of course in the AU she did live and she is reacting in a manner that I find admirable as well as believable. Her fear of John shows that her instincts are good. It is also gratifying that she didn't spend any time at all admiring Dean's looks. That in itself is quite refreshing.

Wow, this story is amazing. Even if the angel-mechanism isn't totally explained, this is just such a beautiful ending. Everyone lives.
| Frakking Toasters chapter 20 . 9/20/2014
Wow. This is just amazing. Never read anything even remotely like it. Congratulations on coming up with something so original and epic and executing it so brilliantly. I really loved it. xo

This was awesome - I got really wrapped up in the mystery. And Jess hunting was really awesome, actually. I never thought of that happening before but it's a great idea. And Sam... oh, Sammy. I really enjoyed this AU. :)
