Loved it, really intense atmosphere and very gripping interaction. Was that Gabriel, though?
Anyway, thank you for sharing this.

Aaaaaaaaahhhhh I was thinking it could be an angel somehow bit I didn't know how and now I'm completely convinced it is Gabriel from the future possessing Dean or making himself look like Dean comimg back to the beginning to save his own skin (and stop the apocalypse bit that one is not as important).

This makes me so, so, SO happy. The ending is absolutely perfect; watching that blasted semi go by in my mind's eye is about the best ever. I'm SO glad that this story has a happy ending. I was worried for a long time that it was going to be tragic, that Sam wouldn't be able to stop what started it all, that Jess was still going to burn. I wish we got to know more about what happens afterwards- if Sam ever manages to slip fully back into this reality and shut out the other, if Jess stays with the Winchesters or if she and Sam try to have a "normal" life, but at the same time, the ending really is perfect.
These are some of my favorite bits from the last few chapters:
"They can't figure out what the thing was (demon, John says, like he doesn't hear any of their counter-arguments), and they can't figure out if it did anything to Sam. When she asks him about that night (because Dean refuses and John is never the best person to ask anyone anything), his answers are vague and contradictory." I love your characterization of John, and his never being the best person to ask anyone anything makes me chuckle. Very true.
"And OK, yeah, all he had to go on was Sam's freakish ramblings, and Sam was crazy, but Dean figured they were all pretty damn crazy by now, and he was totally planning on coming up with a way of justifying hugging Dad, except he didn't need to, because then Dad was hugging him, and Dean took a second to just feel how solid Dad was (he'll be OK he knows what he's doing he's Dad) and then it was gone, and Dad was hugging Jessica, who looked kinda like she'd been jumped by a bear and didn't know whether to fight or play dead for a second, and then hugged back. And yeah, OK, this was kind of surreal. "Take care," said Dad, letting go of Jessica and turning away. "I'll see you soon." He stopped halfway back to the truck, looked back, and Dean knew what was going to come out of his mouth before he even opened, could have freakin mouthed the words along with him. "Look out for Sammy," said Dad. "I will," said Dean." I was not at all expecting John to hug Jess, but she really is as close as anyone's ever gotten to being a Winchester without being one, and this scene is just one giant Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. (And looking like she'd been jumped by a bear, ha! Your skill with these comparisons is Rowling-esque.)
"And then Dean's moving, they're all moving, it's all a blur of heat and shadows and the baby crying against her shoulder and concentrating on not falling down the stairs and not breathing too deep, and there's a man now, too, Dean's growling something, but she ignores him, ignores them all, she's focussed on getting the baby out the door, because there's a life in her arms and twenty-three years ago this was Sam." You're writing's so poignant, the way you just say things, and this is one of those times where the reader just sort of gets smacked with it. "And twenty-three years ago this was Sam." *smack* :O
"But what if isn't her territory, she doesn't see the what if, not the way Sam does, and she takes a moment to close her eyes and be grateful, because if second-guessing is this terrifying then how much worse must second-knowing be?" Second-knowing. Your words! They are awesome!
And now I continue the hunt for more of your incredible stories! :D

Wow! Just amazing! I love that Jess found out the truth, and Sam saved them all and everything. Just wonderful!
Liked your portrayal of John as well... disconnected but not. Never connecting with Jess and how Dean came to understand why Sam fell for her.
Will be re-reading many times. Thank you!
