I just loved the way this blended the ghost case with their own struggle and their past and very frightening future. It was seemless and worked so well! Nicely done! I've enjoyed all your stories, but this one really had all elements and was one of the best I've read. Enjoyed it very much!Thanks!

It astounds and awes and humbles me how you can go from hilarious ("good end of a badger attack" hee!) to heartbreaking in just a few paragraphs. *sniff*
Another lovely tale.

I loved Sam in the protector mode, he was so sweet! And it was so awesome Dean knew exactly what Sam was thinking without even opening his eyes...man, I love those boys. Thanks.

Hm. Sam has become as protective of Dean as he is of him. I like that, but then again I get why Sam is worried what might happen to him later when Dean isn't there to keep him balanced. They complete each other. So they just have to find a way to fix it right? ;)
This was funny.
Sam cleared his throat of the sudden constriction there. “Yeah?”
“I’m bleeding and you’re thinking. Think we could do something about that?”
That is so Dean. Bleeding, in pain, yet still making a joke. Though he was right. Lol. Good thing Bobby had a contact in England. I loved the crack about being flippant and it was so sweet of Sam to ask Dean if he wanted to go see that girl. He was thinking about it, but as usual the job and the looming messed up future of demons and deals comes first. Sweet, angsty, funny and poignant. Awesome story, can't wait to catch your next one.

Great story, fav quote 'All those years ago, when the nursery was burning, Dean had grabbed Sam and run for safety. This time it was Sam’s turn.
Dean was going to Hell. And Sam was going to have to save him from the fire.'
I have read dozens and doezens of stories dealing with the deal and dean's trip to hell, this quote though just really beats all the long winded, flowery crap by a long shot. Perfect ending - Thanks for the great read - Kel

lots of brother angst here, and lots of blood! Waiting for the wrap-up.

Jess’s death had nearly broken him, but Dean’s definitely would. Dean’s had. And it would again.
loved this line

it's burrowing? yikes...

“I’m sure there would’ve been a runt of the litter in there somewhere. And I’m sure you would’ve been there for him, teaching him how to overcompensate by being an a-”
“Hey!” Dean said indignantly. “Somebody’d have to teach the kid how to live surrounded by long-haired, brainy giants.”

“She’s just worried, Dean. She has every right to be,” Sam said.
Dean sighed and sat down on the edge of his bed. “Yeah.”
Sam’s head came up in response. He hadn’t expected Dean to agree so easily. “What is it?”
“Nothing.” His brother looked almost embarrassed. “Just… hate it when old ladies yell at me.”
Sam smiled. “Comes with the territory. Everyone yells at us.”
“Yeah, but I can’t yell back. Yelling at an old lady is like yelling at a nun. You just don’t do it.”
“Dean, you have yelled at a nun.”
“Dude, she was a novice… or whatever you call it. A pre-nun. And she was evil. That doesn’t count.”

Mort is the french name for dead, so that's ominous...

great to have you back!
| Here's Hoping chapter 7 . 4/9/2008
So, I'm not gonna lie, the "He would lose Hope" line with an uppercase H...kinda cheesy. But given the wonderfully excessive (who am I kidding? There no such THING as excessive.) amount of hurt!dean you have bestowed upon us, I've decided I'm okay with that. Bring on the cheesy, because I will put it on crackers and eat it! No, but seriously, Dean's allowed to be cheesy if he thinks he's dying, which he's totally not. If I were Hope, I'd probably be freaking out a lot more, but I guess at this point, they're all kind of in shock. I have missed Marigold in this story, though. I do hope she shows up in the last chapter. And kinda nagging question, but at the point in time that you are writing this, about how much longer have you been imagining Dean having left until his year is up? Wow, that question was unnecesarily wordy. Actually this entire review has been unnecesarily wordy. It may have something to do with the fact that it's 6:15 a.m. and I'm working on a 10 page paper that's due in less than 3 hours, but I'm not sure. I think I talk (well, type) more when I need sleep. Okay, I'll stop now. Wait! Almost forgot. Loved it! Can't wait for the next chapter! Okay, now I'm done.
