| Nuwie chapter 4 . 1/18/2009
Just discovered Supernatural a few weeks ago, thanks to the persistence of a good friend of mine. All my reluctance to watch a show "about two brothers fighting supernatural creatures and so popular in the slash community" was blown away after four episodes.
Hate to admit it, but my friend was right : how could I resist a character like Dean ? ;-) As I'm completely and stupidly fascinated by him, and can't get enough of him on screen, my next step was to hit Fanfic. Found you doing a search on John and Dean characters. Just read this story for now, but you'll certainly hear from me again as I make my way through your other fics. You've got a great insight in those characters, honestly. :-)

I loved this story. I can't really explain but the description of Dean as a geode was heart-breaking and the healing from John was well done. So fragile yet so strong that is the essence of Dean really. Glad to see the brothers unite at the end. Well Done. I look forward to your next work!

Arh Bjxmas, I knew there was a reason why I put you on my author alert list and not just story alert. You have no idea how many times the tears welled up in my eyes (and I had to roll them away lest some family members pop in and think I'm having a breakdown) or the number of times I felt my heart twisting like a wringing cloth.
Thanks for this story. I loved it.

A very sastifying and wonderful ending to this little story. John's true legacy is what he taught the boys, how he instilled the desire to help others in them. Sam's guilt for needing/wanting Dean with him more than his father is just so heart breaking. I can't imagine how that would feel. But Sam does need Dean more; even John recognized that.
Great ending - the boys sharing a true commitment to one another with a renewed resolve to fight the good fight and win. Thanks for sharing this with us. I really enjoyed it.

God this was awesome so very well written and the damn emotions just about swamped me. I so wish Dean could get some relief from the burdens he carries. This was an amazing story.

You had John come back sorta and talk to Dean that was just so sad and so very needed. I loved this chapter and I'm off to read the fourth.

Oh yeah like I said breaking my heart and I feel you aren't finished torturing me. I'm off to read the next one and try not to short out my computer bawling.

Okay thank you, your already ripping my heart out and I know you haven't even gotten started yet. On to read two.

Shew! Lots of stuff to deal with in there...I think you pretty well covered everything we know about the Winchesters. It would be nice if they could get a last moment with their father...but maybe we just might before the season ends.

*sniff sniff*...great chapter. Ffluff and chick flickiness but in just the perfect amount! Again wish dad would have talked to sam but I think sam is satisfied with dad being there for dean. As far as dean breaking down...hello he is human and he is under so much pressure that i think you wrote it perfectly... I agree with you I would love to see jensen act out something like that...course next weeks episode we just might get that *winks* bring the tissues! Great story bj..till next time ~ m

Aww, that was beautiful darlin'. Finally a hug, and I love that Sam was all grown up and just let Dean deal without forcing the issue, and then Dean initiated the hug. That was perfect. Now, if he'd just said something about having his own son to pass it onto someday, I think it would've been perfect.
Thanks so much for sharing.

So much to compliment you on in this chapter - I especially liked Sam's growing sense of panic when he couldn't get to Dean and protect him from whatever he thought was after him, and then the twist of Sam's being able to witness everything that happened to Dean with John was really unexpected, and created a fantastic emotional bond between the brothers.
But for my own selfish reasons, the best bit? They hugged! Thank goodness for that!
I think you made a great job of portraying what would happen to Dean should he ever get to this point psychologically - he's been pretty much dancing on the edge of it all season (possibly most of his life!) and as you say, it would be really interesting to see how they'd handle something like this on the series...

You did an excellent job with your story. Once again you have let us see past the outer layer that Dean presents to the world and his brother.
I like how in this chapter Dean and Sam were reunited. That Sam got to see his father too and hear what had been said between father and son.
The fear Sam faced at the thought of losing his brother was well written. I know that Sam on the show feels this way, but sometime it would be nice to hear him say it, 'that he has always needed Dean more than his dad' and "I've known all along he didn't just make the deal for you... He made it for me too."
I liked that Sam reminded Dean of what he said during "Wendigo" and what a great ending as the brothers were now united to stand against evil.
I just got your response to my review on chapter one, I'll be sending a PM soon.
Also, in case I forget again, like I already forgot to say, late congratuations on posting for one year.
Until later, take care.

Good story! Dean really needed that catharsis.

Okay, I'm not leaving a formal review yet, as I'm too pooped to pop and must go to bed...but I've read the first and can't wait to finish the rest tomorrow.
Nice little Dean/John moments,though.
