|Reviews for Waking Up Alone|
| KatieElizabethRose chapter 1 . 12/7/2013
This is beautifully written. I could almost feel the aching loneliness Dean felt each time he woke up alone. I'm very happy that you chose to show that Sam misses Dean as much as Dean misses Sam when their apart, and how much they need each other. This is a wonderful story. Great work!

Wow. This one is a heart-breaker. I have always thought through this series that being alone is one of Dean's greatest fears, if not his greatest. He can go through a lot and still persevere as long as he has someone he is fighting for...namely, Sam. This is one of the reasons I always get somewhat upset in the episodes where Sam leaves Dean...for whatever reason and for however long. Still, I love how this story showed a steady progression of Dean being almost completely alone to having the steadfast presence of his brother, and how that changed his attitude...gave him hope. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.

This is beautifully written. I like how each section was a story that could stand alone but together, they built up to create a perfect reasoning for what Dean notices first when he wakes up and how he responds. It's perfect.

I think I've decided you may very well be the best author on this site.
I don't know, that's just the fist thought that popped into my head when I finished reading this. You know, after the fog of 'Oh-My-God-this-is-absolutely-amazing-I-NEED-TISSUES!' swirling around in there cleared.
Anyhow, I hope you don't mind seeing a few more of my rambly reviews as I go through the rest of your stories, because damn... you're good at this writing thing.

Loved these vignettes, you really nailed Dean. Beneath that cocky exterior he is insecure and has a fear of being alone and you showed that brilliantly. Most little scenes were so sad except the last one when he woke up and Sam was there.
Really great writing. I'm loving catching up with your stories I've somehow missed! :)

Well this story just blew my pathetic previous review out of the water. (see Marker). Great job sliding into Dean's brain.

Salut ma chérie,
J'ai beaucoup aimé ces variations sur un même thème. Je suis en admiration devant la façon que tu as de raconter les mêmes émotions, mais toujours de manière différente et toujours avec une grande justesse.

Absolutely beautifully painful. You did an excellent job.

Gosh that's sad. There's a sort of proud soft sadness about your words. Dean's situation oozes loneliness and you have captured it very well.

This may be the most adorable thing I've ever read. It went from sad to heartwarming in a flow so subtle I barely noticed a change until I finished and realized I was smiling. You portray Dean very well - it's hard to stay true to the character when you are putting them in situations where they act in ways that they don't normally act... But Dean was very much Dean here, even when he was holding Sam's hand. I loved the progression from Dean being completely alone with his Dad gone and Sam off at college, to Sam being right there with him.
There were so many sweet moments in this I don't even know where to begin. You have quite a gift.

There is definitely underlying sadness to that selection of stories. The early sections about had me in tears, Dean was just so damned lonely. Got hardened to your style slightly, but all the same I still feel sad.
| LuckyMe1 chapter 1 . 6/16/2009
He musters the strength and saliva to say something because, well, this is important. “Would too. Chicks like…playing nurse.” ...I LOVED THIS!
I always feel like the Winchesters live a very lonely life, and for Dean to live without his Dad and/or Sam he would almost have nobody but a few other hunter friends like Bobby, but its not just the same.
| BlueSea14 chapter 1 . 1/1/2009
Wow, Dean has some inner angst. This was a great look at how Dean's been more or less left behind so many times, and how it still hurts him. I liked the different examples or times when he has waken up by himself, and I like the last one very much. Sam being there when he wakes up in the hospital is a very nice wrap-up to the story that tells how Dean feels left behind and forgotten so much.

Oh Wow! I really liked this. You nailed Dean in this one. He does seem to have a slight fear of being alone, or at least alone without his family. His family is his strenth and who he is.
