Great use of the song that was used in the scene that ripped my heart into tiny little pieces. Very good. :)

Hoooeee way to give Bon Jovi an even deeper meaning. Poor Sammy. I can see him saying, "I'm fine," all the way to his grave.

Wow! Holy Crap, I loved this! Really, wonderful job! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at Sammy's denial, so I alternated, depending. I loved how Bobby and Ellen acted with Sam, and this whole thing was just amazingly well done. I'm slightly ashamed to admit that Denial is my favorite MO when it comes to things I don't want to deal with, and I thought Sam's thoughts and reactions were spot on when it came to denial. :) Awesome job!

I thought Dean flashback about hell were wrenching, but I was wrong.
This hurt to read, it was so real and so sad. You write heartbreakingly true.

Very good story, thanks!

oh my gosh! *gives slow clap while getting up from her seat for a standing ovation* this is the best story I've read for how Sam dealt after Dean was gone...I LOVE the song put in there too! Absolutely amazing, really! Very nice job!

I'm more of a Dean girl but this story gave a wonderful insight into Sam's head post 316. It was so heartbreaking and realistic. And the lyrics really helped to make a point, especially the last line -'cause I might not make it back'. Perfect.

Wow. I really enjoyed this!
It's all just so realistic.

Alrighty you. I go on fanfiction every single day, and I look up the exact same thing. Supernatural. Completed Stories. Over one thousand words. And I read a TON. Not all very good, accurate I should say, but still...some do grab my attention. However, I'm never excited ENOUGH to leave a review.
But your story grabbed me. What I found to be amazing was the way to integrated that last song, Bon Jovi, into the plot. What just struck my heart though was that last part.
Sam closes his eyes, debating on his answer, he hears the verse in his head...and when he opens his eyes he knows the answer he's giving isn't right. But his only choice. And then you just send it off with the reason why "-'cause I might not make it back." And my heart broke.
I mean, that was just too strong for words. The point was played across remarkably. Amazing, AMAZING, job.

awesome mcawesomer! Lol, I love how you casually slipped Ellen in there, thank you! Nice reasoning behind new Ruby, she acts all timid and useless cause she's heistant as to what the hell is up with Sam, waiting for him to crack.
Love how Bon Jovi is woven in there...basically I love it all in general!

Sam my middle name is Denial Winchester. Great fic and loved how you showed Bobby's grief in there amongst Sam's musings. Perfect.

Swet! A nice look into Sam's head, a grown up, screwed up Sam but real. Great job.

Gawd, that was so perfect! I CAN'T BELIEVE you doubt your talent. That was one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful, and insightful looks into Sam that I have ever read. You know him from the soul out. This was an absolutely amazing piece of work!
