kinda sad cuz dean is usually emotional involving sam lol, but this chapter's cute. it reminds me of my own therapy, and how when i got strong enough i'd help my friends with theirs.
continue with the dean/sam interaction. i wanna see what happens to them in school.

I wanted to wait until I'd finished the whole story before I reviewed. I cried so much, you ripped my heart out. I hated seeing Sam go through so much, but I enjoyed getting to see Dean have the life and family he deserved. Wonderful story! I plan to read more by you.

well this evening i read this in one go...and dude, i lost count how many hours this took me and how many times i cried! but i dont care, that was one of the best rides in a story ive ever had in my life! gosh...i think i need to go...do something else now, like with real people downstairs...but this felt so real! from start to finish i never skipped a beat! and usually i do (im bad i know) but this had so many ups and down and round and rounds i couldn't skip even a sentence! i love/hate you for killing john, it gave way for Dean to grow up some more and become the man he was destined to be in this AU but i missed him so much because i feel he was such a nice loving father in this! and jim...aw! gosh, i cried several times a chapter on this!
sam had such strength and grace in this! dean did too, and john and jim and julie and lil jonny and cat...aahh, just perfect!
and amazingly, im fine with there being no sequel, it didnt need one. just amazing on its own, all the loose ends tied up perfectly! and im so happy there was minimal demon action, i was crossing my fingers through out the whole thing praying they got to stay normal and happy!
AMAZING, BLISSFULLY AND TRULY INSPIRING!
you should be so proud of this story.
thank you so much for writing this!
lots of love x Beck if i could add this to my fav list in ten fold, i would!

Excellent use of Sam's leather band as a charm to ward off evil and possession. I liked the name you used for Dean's son. It seemed so appropriate. I loved all of Sam's interactions with Caitlin and John. Sam saying goodbye to Jim was heartbreaking. Even though I cried my way through most of this story, I could really relate to this story because my brother has special needs. Unfortunately he is unable to speak. The time jumps were an effective way to move the story along. Great job!

Even though this was a long chapter, I really enjoyed it. In fact, I cried my way through most of it. This chapter was a real nail biter. I liked how you jumped back and forth to each trauma to us readers guessing who was going to die. The hospital scene with Jim, Dean and John was very sad but well done. It is never easy to watch one's parent die. I think you really captured that moment. I loved Sam's interactions with Catlin and I couldn't help to cheer him on when he saved her life. I liked how you introduced his visions into your story. As heart wrenching as this story has been, I have still really enjoyed it so far.

Poor Sammy being called a retard. I hate that word. I liked how you had Sam being persistent about learning the meaning of retarded and handicapped when John refused to tell him. I loved Jim's talk to Sam in that scene. I liked the scene with Sam and Chloe. It was so cute. I was wondering if you were going to have Sam remembering things before his drowning. I am glad that you did have him remember some things. You are killing me with the cliffhangers. Your execution for them is excellent. You have all these happy moments and everything is going okay and then wham the Winchesters are thrown another curve ball. Excellent job as usual.

I liked that you started this chapter with Dust in the Wind, another one of my favorite songs. That worried me once I found out what was happening with Sam. The hospital scenes brought me to tears. I am glad that you didn't have Sam dying. I loved these cute moments/touching scenes: Sam's classmate asking about his dimples, Sam opening presents at Christmas, Sam's fifteenth birthday and the end scene with Dean and Sam.
| supernatfem76 chapter 6 . 7/6/2009
I liked the time jumps. It is actually nice to see how different Dean would be if circumstances were different. It's also nice to see Dean have someone to talk to about his feelings other than family. Tyler is a great confidant. I liked the Rawhide reference. I definitely didn't see the seizure coming. Poor Sammy, John and Jim!
| supernatfem76 chapter 5 . 7/6/2009
I never pictured Dean playing football but you made it very believable. I liked the Tyler character and the way he interacted with Sam. You had me going with the pond scene with Sam. I thought Sam had fallen in as well. What a heartstopper! I liked the dialogue too.
| supernatfem76 chapter 4 . 7/6/2009
You painted an excellent picture of Blue Earth in the winter. I liked every scene in this chapter. They were all very touching and I couldn't help but smile while reading them.
| supernatfem76 chapter 3 . 7/5/2009
I loved John's comforting words to Dean, Dean's words to his father about home and family. There were so many touching scenes in this chapter I lost count. I could really relate to John's concerns about making sure Sam would have a proper caregiver if something happened to him and Dean. I have those same concerns about my own brother. Hoppers was a nice touch. With each chapter I get closer to shedding tears but I can't help but read on since this is such a touching story.
| supernatfem76 chapter 2 . 7/5/2009
Good mix of interesting medical information and emotional scenes. There were so many scenes that pulled at my heartstrings. I felt so bad for John and Dean that they had to drive to the hospital instead being able to be by Sam's side. This was such an emotional chapter. I came close to crying a couple of times for this one. Great job!
| supernatfem76 chapter 1 . 7/4/2009
I loved how you began this chapter with Who Wants To Live Forever. That is one of my favorite Queen songs. Excellent job writing how Sam looked when he was pulled from the lake and Dean's and John's reactions to seeing Sammy like that. Very emotional! An excellent beginning to what I think is going to be a very heart wrenching story.

I know, I am a little too late in reviewing. But I realized that I never wrote a review for this story. Of course you know that I love it a lot.
I read it again today and I have some thoughts on it. Do you ever wonder what would have happened if Sammy died? How would that impact the developement of this story? Would Dean still have went to college and met Julie?
Also, do you ever imagine how things would have been if Sammy lived, but was more damaged and was never able to regain basic functioning?
I loved this story and I can't wait to see what you have planned next :-)
