Nobody writes hurt Sam and nurturing Dean better than you, Faye. Nobody.

Another brilliant job! I love how you seem to capture Dean so effortlessly. :)

God how I hate that deal. It's really wearing me out... and after last episode... seeing Sam like that just broke my heart. *sniff*
You captured the mood perfectly in this I think.
Maybe I could coerce Kripke into employing you. You think he'd respond well to threats? Should be worth a try :o)

Very interesting. I always did wonder how Sam got over the shoulder wound so quickly.

adpgoahd;lgha I loved this. So much. The episode was just waiting to be tagged - what, with Sam's apparent crazy demon blood healing abilities (must be it, given that he had no wound in the next episode [/sarcasm])
You said that you wrote this quickly, and honestly, I think it actually made it better. Having your brother bleeding to death on a hotel bed wouldn't make for a steady stream of cognitive thought, I don't think, and there's a panicked sort of feeling as you read. :3
One thing I would like to mention, though - and this is just the nitpicker in me, it didn't impede the story's quality at all - is that arterial bleeds are a bit more complicated to stitch. I'm not sure if I read correctly, but it looked like Dean stitched the outside layer of skin in attempt to stop the blood flow. However, all that would do is either allow the blood to continue flowing internally, or it would eventually pop the stitches.
Anyway, standard procedure for a bleed like that would call for a tourniquet to stem the blood flow. Next, the removal of blood clots. In most cases, if no more than two inches of the artery have been lost, a hairsbreadth-thin thread is used to sew together the outer, tougher coat of the artery without entering the inner lining.
I'm not sure if this link is going to show up, but Time magazine has a good, brief article on basic arterial bleed procedures...

D: I hate link-hating... thing.
Like I said, though, this is just me being a nitpick and offering creative criticism. Having Dean actually go through that whole process would probably take away from the that urgent feeling I liked so much about this story. I figured that this might be some good knowledge to have for future fics, though, given the love of Sam!whump (I swear to God I'm not a sadist, I don't understand why hurt/comfort is so appealing T_T).

Brilliant-but then, you always are, Faye, and spot on when it comes to the Winchester brothers. You're one of my very favorite SPN writers, and I will always follow your work! Love, Robin

Well even though I had a to skip a couple of paragraphs - I'm mega-squeamish when it comes to realistic gore! - this was a great little story. I don't think Dean really did think through what he was doing, the effect his sacrifice would have on Sam. Even after he'd experienced the same thing with John. I love the idea that maybe Sam won't be able to survive without Dean, because I think we always think of Sam as the independent capable member of the family, the one who CAN survive on his own. But with Dad AND Dean gone, I think you're right - no way he'd be able to just pick up the pieces of his old life and move on.
Great story (apart from the trickly red stuff!)

Gosh, that was just...awesome. The emotion and passion you threw in there was unvelievable, well really believable cos I felt like I was standing next to Dean, it seemed so real! That was truly amazing. Please write more :) Hurt sammy more, make him have an infection, or get really sick- I LOVE seeing Dean take care of his baby bro! It is so sweet.
| NC Girl chapter 1 . 10/24/2007
Well written... great dialogue... flowed seamlessly...touching... fantastic. These are the words that have come to mind after finishing nearly every one of your stories and this one is no different. They are always a pleasure to read and seldom (if ever) disappoint. Thanks for writing this and thanks for sharing this. (and thanks for posting yet another so quickly! I just saw a new one so I'm off to read!)

I was very excited to see a fic by you turn up in my inbox. As soon as I saw your name i knew it would be quality. Once again, you live up to your reputation. Yes, this tag was begging to be written and you are the perfect person for the job.
Classic line, loved it to bits: "The look Sam gave him was both pathetic and disparaging-a true Sam original." -had a vivid picture in my head. Dean knows his bro so well. Thanks for that Winchester moment.
Sam's level of pain and risk escalating as the spike that the eppy missed when the "oh well Sam got shot" ending happened was dramatic and exciting in your fic. I loved the drama of Dean having to do it all himself thanks to the feds, the hitmen and the supernaturals, the boys were cornered. Your contrast of Dean in training mode tending to the wounded soldier and switching to distressed panicy big brother was brilliantly written. Scared big brother won over and your description was so intense that Dean's emotions were leaping out the page at me. I cringed and cried with and for Sammy, I felt it all, graphic imagery.
Your words here "Dean could handle a lot of crap... He could handle Sam keeping secrets, he could handle Sam lying to him. He could handle Sam being emo, and he could even handle breaking Sam's heart. He could handle scraped knees, black eyes, and a flesh wound. But Dean couldn't handle Sam dying." were just magic in showing the heart of Dean, exposed as the memory of that last bedside vigil smashed his protective wall. Fantastic work Faye.
And finally, your conclusion of Dean's big 'ah ha' moments: that Sam loved him not as a hero worshipping child, but with the love that comes with maturity and that he realised Sam does not take him for granted. Awesome.
The tie in to the bad luck and the humour of "reading people" was a cool bit of fun too.
Epic job. Enjoyed the read very much.
