Aw... chick flick moment here... so sweet...
Loved it. Dean is an awesome big bro.

AW, this was simply adorable! I loved seeing all the bits and pieces from Sam and Dean's childhood that John had kept in the box, and when I discovered that the book on parenting was DEAN'S, I simply melted - that was simply too precious:-) Good job with this one - it's totally something I could see Dean doing:)

Wow, that was such a great story! Impressively well-written. I loved all the awkwardness mixed in with the special, heartwarming, brother moments. So perfect! Thanks for making me smile!
Oh, and this line made me laugh: "Sam felt a rush of love for his big brother and seriously considered risking life and limb to give him a hug."

I love dean-raised-sam fics. Not that I particularly dislike John Winchester, but he's not about to win Father Of The Year, now is he? Whereas Dean...
Anyways, kudos on a great fic!

I love when people write about Dean being the real dad to Sam. This was so adorable and I think you really nailed Dean's reaction to Sam finding out. Thanks for another great story.

I loved this story. I think, that as fans, we sometimes tend to romanticize John Winchester. He was not a good father. He left his children alone, at a young age, for days at a time. He dragged them all over the country, they never had a permanent home. It was always about his need for revenge and not Dean and Sammy's needs.
“If I am (ever a good father), it’ll only be cuz I learned from the best,” Sam responded quietly.
Total chick flick moment, but a wonderful one. Sam knows his brother has always done for him, but to what extent a young Dean went to, he learns here from the book. A book that Dean had highlighted and made notes in. Games that they played as boys.
It is a heavy burden indeed that Sam carries, that his brother sold his soul for his. Dean always put Sam's needs before his own (as a good parent does). It is nice to see Sam get the chance to tell Dean thank you, even if it does make Dean cringe.

I loved this. Smiled all through it. Lovely brother voices. Great snark. I pulled out some really sweet bits ...
This: “No biggie,” Dean brushed it off as unimportant, leaving Sam unsure as to whether it actually had been or whether his brother just wanted him to think it was.
- Good inner voice for Sam.
This: It was the little things in life that made Dean happy, a quality he found endearing, but knew better than to comment on.
- Ditto to above. Very Sam to realize this. And true for Dean
This: Dean nodded. “Yeah, mom made him get the bubblegum ones, even though Dad said a real man would hand out real cigars. But she said it was my celebration too—you being born—and they should get something I could enjoy too.” He smiled at the memory. “That was the first time I ever had bubblegum—the day you were born. I’d been begging for it for a while, and mom said that since I was a big brother now, I was finally old enough. It was the best thing I’d ever tasted.” Dean’s face had softened. “That was a great day,” he finished quietly.
- Meep! Aw. Loved this passage
This: Dean hadn’t opened his eyes yet, still hoping against hope that a sinkhole would open and swallow him. What? Weirder things had happened. Especially in their line of work.
- Perfect Dean voice
This: But his brother’s belief in him meant a lot. Meant everything.
- Love this line.
Really nice little story. Will check out more as soon as I have a little more time. I can tell I'll like :)

Aw this is too precious! I absolutely love it! It's so true Dean did so much for Sam that I bet he's not even aware of. Really sweet story :)
