Wow, excellent. )

This is a great version of what could have happened with the start of season four. Though I think the show has done a pretty decent job so far, I like a few of the elements in your story better than the canon. You were actually very close in some ways, such as Sam's extreme secrets and Dean finding things out the hard way.

Wow. This was fantastic. You actually did manage to wrap it up in just one more chapter. I really had my doubts that it was possible, but you did it. So glad that Sam's wound is now better. So glad that Dean read the journal and found out about the secrets Sam was keeping, and saw for himself how his brother really feels about him.
LOVED Dean writing an entry in there to Sam, that was just brilliant. And again, amazing job keeping him in character when writing. This cracked me up: "First off… I told you this was a diary. Freak. I’m surprised you didn’t write down what clothes I was wearing each day or something equally girly." LOL You really have their voices down. Loved how you likened the journal recording Dean's progress to a parent recording their kid's first steps. Very sweet.
I do wish there'd been another chapter or something though. I really, really wanted to see Sam wake up and them have the talk. Maybe you'll do a sequal for us? Please? *uses puppy eyes*
I'm putting this on my favorites list. Very well done!

Oh crap. The end of that journal entry almost sounds like a goodbye note. I TOLD you that wound was bad news. *whimpers* Dean, get back to your brother!
| bhoney chapter 7 . 12/3/2008
Oh crap. Wound's not healing.
And the exorcism affected Dean? Double crap.
Must keep reading.

Wow, great job writing the hunt. It was very natural, smooth, seemed very episode-like. And I loved the line about the diary vs. journal. LOL
I do hope Dean finds out soon about the spine injury. Hope it wasn't re-opened after the board to the back.
| bhoney chapter 5 . 12/3/2008
Aw...loved Sam comforting Dean after his nightmare, and Dean's “Love you, too, Sammy.” So sweet. The cuddling conversation made me laugh.
Very cool that Sam still hunted while at Stanford, and that it's how he met Jess. Sam's journal entry broke my heart a little for him, though. So sad.

I really like the idea of the boys sight-seeing. This made me giggle: "The largest ball of twine – not just the second-largest." LOL
Loved this: “Don’t you ever think that, Dean. You’re my brother. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to save you. Just like there’s nothing you wouldn’t do to save me.”
| bhoney chapter 3 . 12/3/2008
Loved this: Sam smiled sadly. “Yeah, but you’re Batman – not Superman, Dean. Batman’s only human, too.” Great analogy and tie-in with BDABR.

Liked that the hellhounds couldn't touch the area of Dean's chest with the tattoo. I'd wondered about that.
Love that Sam's keeping track of the minutes since he's last seen his brother.
Really hope Dean's soul's not tainted.
| bhoney chapter 1 . 12/3/2008
Wow. I am LOVING this so far. Dean having nightmares and getting comforted by Sam, Sam journaling and talking about his feelings about his brother. *does a happy dance*
LOVED this: "He figured I’d be able to make it without him – to survive as the last Winchester. He was wrong."
Great job keeping in character when Sam was journaling, too.

Somehow I missed that this story ended. I really enjoyed it; it was a nice full circle, Dean once more stepping up to the big brother plate. And I love the communicating through journal. You really tied everything up sweetly. Congratulations!
| heraldtaliar chapter 9 . 8/12/2008
That was totally awesome, and I'm so glad you finished it! It was really a great way to end it, with Dean reading Sam's writing and deciding to set the record straight. I'm sorry it's over but I think you ended it well. Please keep on writing!
| TuckerCat chapter 9 . 8/12/2008
I really enjoyed this. I haven't any idea of how Dean will get back but I sure like the idea of it being Sam. I hope you do write more, more to this story and just more. I understand the time problems, just wanted to let you know I like your work.
