This is the second brother deathfic I've read of yours today. I cannot help but wonder what you have lost, yourself. The writing is so full of true emotion, such love; and the ultimate fantasy, in which those we love the most somehow come back to us, if only for a while. Halfway through this one, I was sobbing for my brother, who died many years ago, and for whom I have not shed a tear in quite some time. I think of him as I write my own stories (mostly in another fandom), and it is the bottomless agony of his death that fuels the raw emotion in my own work. I recognize that same thing in your stories. If you have managed that without experiencing such a personal loss yourself, I am truly amazed. If, on the other hand, you write to satisfy and expel your own demons, I truly hope that the process helps you as much as it has helped me.

Pixel! Oh my gosh, that was wonderful! I cannot for the life of me understand why this doesn't have forty or more reviews...it's just spectacular. Such an original idea...and so well done. But even if the other Sam stops his death and finds a way back to the future, wouldn't that leave present Dean alone? Or would present Dean and future Dean become one and the same?
Either way, that was really good. I'm glad I made time for this. Thanks.

Man, NO ONE does AU like you do. And I certainly haven't read anything like this! Just simply stunning, as always!
What a totally cool, unique aspect that could have happened. And I love that he wanted to go to Disneyland. THey finally got a touch of the normal they deserve.
Thanks for sharing!

Pixel, this is a wonderful, tender story. You had me crying at the beginning, though. That picture you painted of Dean alone, grieving, drinking himself to death just broke my heart in two: "He wishes for Sam. He wishes for death." I believe that it would be a very accurate picture of Dean sans deal with the CRD. You write Dean's emotions so well.
Just love the premise, the originality of this little tale - Sam coming back to Dean via time travel to bring him out of his despair, to help him live. All of the wonderful things they do together, the things they share so that Dean will have warm memories when it's time for Sam to go away again. Love that it was Sam's question to Dean that prompts him to get back into shape to hunt again - I think he knew that Dean would need that when he left.
The end is so bittersweet. Dean is getting on with his life but when he finds that entry from Sam he treasures his memories instead of fearing them and he begins to hope again. Thanks for sharing this amazing gem with us. Until next time...

God, this was such a joy to read. At first I thought Sam was just a figment of Dean's imagination, but I liked your ending better. :) Thanks for making my day with this story!
