Maybe not what Bobby was thinking but definately what I was thinking. Because God did give us all free will and when people do act to help others that's God acting. Not that I want to get all Jesus Camp on you its just this season, in three episodes, has given me more to think about in terms of where I stand on my own religious beliefs than confirmation classes.
Thar said, I loved this line : "Bobby was watching two dead men talk." and the comparison of John and Sam and Dean, and the examination of how exactly Bobby ended up in his role of Dad (though I'd like to think Dean's just reverting to his days when Bobby was Uncle Bobby).

I loved that explanation! Falls in line exactly with my own believes for evil-and I love how you have God putting his pieces back in play. Yep, it would scare Dean half to death to realize he's been "watched" all these years, and even more so to find out that he had actually been working for God, too :D
Thanks so much for sharing that one! Though now I'm going to have to go watch the episode...and after I'd written the whole season and the whole show off after last season...rats...

Hm! I don't know. It might have passed through huis head, although Bobby does not seem the type. I really enjoyed reading your take on it though. Always a pleasure.

I trule liked this fic! I'm not much on God and Angels myself - but this seemed so...BOBBY! and yeah, I can see him thinking along these lines too! This was awesome - thank you so much for sharing this lovely!
*hugs you tight*

Undoubtedly *exactly* what he was thinking! *g*
| DixieHellcat chapter 1 . 10/3/2008
"Undoubtedly not what Bobby was thinking"? Oh, I dunno. It sounds just like something he'd think, to me. He was definitely thinking they were idjits. LOL. Nice job catching his voice!
I do love me some Bobby. Dean's right, he is indeed awesome. :-)
| PADavis chapter 1 . 10/3/2008
Oh very nice take on the talk and what Bobby was thinking. Great 'voice' for him. And a wonderfully ironic and affectional way of looking at the situation and the boys that's perfectly Bobby. Wonderful.

Bobby Love. That is all.
| NShadows chapter 1 . 10/2/2008
That was amazing! I don't know what Bobby might have been thinking, but this fit VERY well! And it's true, too!
| Alec's Angel chapter 1 . 10/1/2008
Excellant! I could definitely see Bobby thinking all that. I mean Dean is a walking, talking miracle (in more ways than one) and I was totally thrilled that an Angel, with orders from God, had pulled Dean out. Afterall, Dean was always helping people just to help them. He never hesitated to risk his life for any of them and he never expected anything in return. Sam, even now, has a tendency to be a little selfish. But, let's face it, only Dean could be pulled out of the pit, and put back in his completely in tact and gorgeous body after being dead for four months and still need proof that God exists and miracles do happen. In my opinion Lazarus Rising had to be the best and most intriguing episode so far and My favorite scene was Dean and Bobby's reunion. It was touching and funny. Are You There God, It's Me, Dean Winchester was just as good. (Though, I'll admit I didn't recognize Meg at first, she looked so different.) This seems to be turning out to be the best season of Supernatural yet. Anyway, like I said before, this was an excellant story as always.

Well done! As far as I'm concerned this is exactly what Bobby was thinking. It makes me giggle everytime he calls the boys idjits. hehe
I particularly liked this part:
*These two, who have spent their lives, dedicated themselves to serving others, fighting evil - not just bad guys, but genuine, full on capital E, evil - and they still can’t figure it out.
Why didn’t He do something about people getting torn to shreds?
He had. The Man Upstairs had a whole lot of weapons in his arsenal and two of them were sitting there filling rock salt rounds. They’d been working for Him for years, whether they realized it or not.*
| frenchfredo chapter 1 . 9/30/2008
Absolutely what Bobby was thinking. Works perfectly for me. Good to read something from you...
| bhoney chapter 1 . 9/30/2008
Wow! I am really impressed at your willingness to tackle this topic, and how deftly you handled it. Love Bobby, as always. You did a great job capturing his voice.
Great injection of humor in little spots. This made me chuckle: "Was it any wonder a man took to the bottle?" LOL
Okay, this part really hit me: "Why didn’t He do something about people getting torn to shreds? He had. The Man Upstairs had a whole lot of weapons in his arsenal and two of them were sitting there filling rock salt rounds. They’d been working for Him for years, whether they realized it or not." This gave me chills-you are SO right, they have been doing the work all along, just not realizing who they were doing it for. :)
And another part that stood out for me: "God would save the obedient, reward them. He would give them peace, more than the inner kind anyway. Just not necessarily here." Wow. Really powerful. Great insight.
And then loved this insight from Bobby: "God might take His time sorting things out, but when He did, He took care of it good and proper." Well said!
I cannot even express how much I loved this story. It is one of the best fanfics I've read in a long time. And SO dead on-the irony of the situation, them sitting there talking-both alive, one actually still bearing the marks of being plucked from Hell-about God's seeming relunctance to help out, is just incredible.
So much of what you had Bobby thinking here is what I was thinking watching the ep, but you/he expressed it so much better than I ever could. Loved seeing his memories of childhood, his thoughts and feelings about the boys, his insight on Dean being so skittish about the Man Upstairs having an interest in him, him calling the boys "his boys", and I always get a giggle out of Bobby calling the boys "idjits". Cracks me up, every time!
So, after much depression over the summer re: the finale, I am loving how the season has started out, and loving this fic. I hope we see more from you soon! I'm favoriting this!

Very nice Bobby story. just shows how much he loves the two idjits
| luvjase chapter 1 . 9/30/2008
Oh, I love this! Especially Bobby viewing the boys as warriors and weapons of God. Makes perfect sense to me and it fits so well with the episode. Thanks so much!
