Oh, another interesting twist, Sam not being able to help Dean because, well, vampire blood and open wounds really don't go well together. You could feel the tension of his having to physically restrain himself from helping poor Dean coming off of the page. And then you continued on with that Lady Macbeth sequence in the bathroom where Sam is realizing he isn't up to this yet. Very nicely done.

This is my favorite tag to "Fresh Blood".

This is packed with raw emotion. You sure know how to go down deep into the boys' guts and souls. Thanks.

Aw. Tough time for both of them. Dean was trying to reassure Sam all the time and Sam was trying to figure out how to save Dean AND become more like him so he could survive without him.
Having that blood on his hands and not being able to help his brother when he needed it hit him hard and I'll bet that was as much the problem as anything with the hand washing. He hadn't killed in cold blood, so there wasn't really any need for guilt, not that that would make any difference to him. :D
Great fic, really. :)
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This story was heartbreaking. Ergo, I loved it. ;) Sam's speech following "I want…every day of my year, you hear me? No checking out early, Dean. I want each one of those 365, and every day after that." almost brought me to tears. And Dean finding him in the bathroom scrubbing away was so sad, although I managed to drag up a smile at the guy who was on the receiving end of Dean's death-glare.

This was a very good wrap-up. Of course Gordon's blood would have caused a few minor issues, both because of the fact it was vampire blood and because Sam (despite his toughening exterior) is still Sam. I loved how Dean confronted him-reassuring without acutally coming right out with a chick-flick moment. :)

-Dean’s eye slitted again. “You haven’ changed.”- This line killed me Hanna, you really are such an amazing writter! Sorry I haven't been reviewing lately, I haven't seen any more of season 3 so I had to be patient and wait till I did lol. But yeah this story was amazing!
-who's...got...you- Another fantastic line, dean is adorable even half way unconscious
I love the line about Dean always needing Sam, it's so sweet! And Sam wanting every day of his year! Honestly you're amazing Hanna.
sad sad ending though :(( Sadd, but well done

This was IMHO the perfect tag to "Fresh Blood" in both content and style.
It had everything I could have asked for: repercussions (mentally and physically), some action, angst, brotherly love and great characterizations. And it had a near perfect word-count: long enough to be really thorough, yet short enough to never lack pacing.
Exactly what I wanted to read about how the boys dealt with everything afterwards (e.g. I'm particularly fond of Dean's getting cared for with his blood loss and the final scene in the bathroom with their heart-to-heart about Sam killing off Gordon the way he did).
One word: A.W.E.S.O.M.E.! *applauds*

This is a fabulous tag, as are all of yours. I just re-watched "Fresh Blood" last night, so I sought this tag out specifically. I think my favorite "brother scenes" are in this episode - first when Sam tells Dean he just wants him to be his brother again; and later, when Dean does just that.
I really loved the theme of this story. Sam is so worried about losing Dean, either now or at the end of his year; he's afraid of what he'll do when Dean is gone. All he wants is for Dean to grow old with him. Loved your paragraph expressing Sam's feelings.
I have to admit, I never gave much thought about "vampire" blood being on Sam's hands and not being able to touch Dean's wounds. Good job. Love your descriptions of Dean - hurt and suffering from blood loss, confused - still trying to walk and find his brother. Dean is so lost without Sam, it's no wonder he made the crossroads deal. That's why I find it interesting that Sam thinks he needs to be more "like Dean". Not in that way, he doesn't.
Wonderful tag. I'm skipping around again reading more of your work. I'm very impressed with your consistently excellent writing and creative ideas. Thanks for sharing this with us. Until next time...

Nice. I liked this a lot. My favorite part was this: "I want…every day of my year, you hear me? No checking out early, Dean. I want each one of those 365, and every day after that. I want to see you find somebody and have kids and make fun of my parenting and grow old, and then, maybe, when you’re ninety and have a dozen great-grandkids, maybe then I’ll think about letting you go. But not before then. I want that time—I need it. I need you." So nice to hear him say that to Dean.
And kudos for thinking about the whole vampire blood thing, and Sam not being able to touch Dean to help stop the bleeding or help him to the car. You really do come up with such interesting angles for these.

Again, a wonderful, angsty story- completely in keeping with whatever else I've read of your writing. You're really original. I can't think of anyone else who would actually have thought about the fact that Dean had open wounds and Sam had blood on his hands and build it up like that. And the ending with no resolution? Again, wonderful. The whole story was freaking brilliant. I love your brother moments.

LOVED IT!Sam pulled in a ragged breath above him. “I want…every day of my year, you hear me? No checking out early, Dean. I want each one of those 365, and every day after that. I want to see you find somebody and have kids and make fun of my parenting and grow old, and then, maybe, when you’re ninety and have a dozen great-grandkids, maybe then I’ll think about letting you go. But not before then. I want that time—I need it. I need you. Dean, I killed Gordon with my bare hands. Took his head off just like he did those women’s. I-I need…I don’t want to be a monster, man, and I don’t think I can…”
Hot, wet drops hit Dean’s chin, making him flinch.

I did *wonder* about poor Dean with this episode. I mean, obviously he'd he concerned by Sam's actions, but Gordon was feasting on him for a while...in the *neck*
