Geek that I am I googled it to make sure 2 November 2008 was a Sunday though 100% sure you were right!
A really great little fic, so in tune with the boys in Season 4. Yeah, 2nd November is not a good day in the Winchester calendar.

That date has to be so overwhelming for the guys in so many ways.

I've always said Sam is not evil. He's the one that always wanted to do the right thing, prayed every night and then all this happens. This was so Sam and I appreciate it. The poor kid can't catch a break. He does make stupid decisions but it's for the right reasons. Loved this.

I know I am late here in my review but the joy of reading this after the end of S4 just gave me a blanket buzz of brotherly OD of hope and love. It was a perfect pick-me up moment that had been missing all season with your beautifuly use of words.
Thank you so much for giving me such an inspiring reflective moment that brought both boys back together. Loved it totally.

Okay, I totally missed this! I was just on your profile, scrolling my way down to Faux Pas- you thought I was just saying that I was going to read it now, didn't you? See, I wasn't just saying it. I meant it. In anycase, I was scrolling my way down and low and behold there was a SN story by you that I'd never seen!
So I decided to read this before Faux Pas. And can I just say that SERIOUSLY, you need to write for the show. I mean really. How long would it take to film this scene? And yet, including it, I'd feel so much better about where the show's headed.
Your tie-in to Nightmare (which was my favorite eppy of all time) was fabulous. I remember that relationship between the boys too. Gosh, that was so long ago. Back in the day where Sam wasn't fighting alone and Dean was 100 percent on Sam's side- no matter anything. Uh. And the way you tied it in, with the Las Vegas/craps tables line. Absolutely fabulous! Really well-written (as always).
Sorry I missed this one, but glad that I stumbled onto it today.

Very touching. After all that's happened they can still joke with each other on one of their worst days

That was brilliant, really enjoyed it : - )

Very well written and in-character. I think you've managed to restore some of the season one relationship.

It's amazing how such a small story (drabble?) can be so powerful. Something was definitely needed after the last episode but I wasn't exactly sure what. But now I know...this is it.
Sam's woes get larger with every season (along with his lovely arms, but I digress). The God that he has prayed to everyday since that tragic day has seemingly turned his back on him. His own brother looks upon him as a freak, something that he would hunt if he didn't know Sam, which just cuts him to the core. It's really a wonder the poor boy just hasn't completely snapped.
Sam's angst was very painful and real, as was Dean's when he rode up to get Sam. Not over the top, just the right amount of quiet and tears.
“We will figure this out.” He caught Sam’s eyes, “Together, okay? Brothers…” Simple, heartfelt and to the point. Spot on, my friend.
And great call back to Nightmare with the line As long as I’m around nothing bad is going to happen to you… That drew an "Aw" from me. )
Great job, Phx! Loved it.

You say you do't know where this came from but I'm glad you listened to that little voice and shared the story with the rest of us. Good job!

I really really loved this. Since the show doesn't seem willing to provide much exploration of Sam's feelings, I am grateful that there are writers like you who do. Thank you!

THanks for writing this. I enjoyed it! Nice treat for someone who woke up at 4 am and can't get back to sleep! (even earlier than Sam) :-)

You do such an awesome job of writing the Winchester brothers.
I felt so sorry for Sam. Love that Dean came in search of his little brother. Dean's line about not knowing how to fix this, but his reassurance that "We will figure this out...Together, okay? Brothers…” was perfect.
I could picture Dean trying to ease the tension and joke about Vegas at the end. Nice touch.
Always love to see a new SN story from you.
Thanks for sharing this one with us.

It's good, Phoenix. There's a lot coming hard and fast at the guys. It'd make anybody want to turn and run from it. Especially on a day like this one. At least Sam has a big brother to come find him and be with him through it.

"Brothers." Oh, that's nice to hear. I think we keep writing these fics because we miss these affirmations in the ep, and reading it in another's work is comforting. This was a lovely warm fuzzy fic. I love Dean coming to get Sam, his determination to once again face stuff together, and even an inspired callback to "Nightmare." Nice work!
