I like how you interweaved the case with Dean's Hell flashbacks. And I love how you portrayed Castiel as the angel of the Lord that he was at the beginning of season 4.
I enjoyed this casefic a lot. Thank you!

This affected me in a way not much fanfiction has done. I wanted to cry. I wanted more.
Thank you and ... keep writing! Please!

I LOVE your portrayal of Cas. A lot of people forget that he's a SOLDIER and not exactly cuddly (especially in season four). Also, the alternative handprint idea was pretty cool. Well done!

I always love your SPN stories and was so excited to find one that I haven't read. I love your intertwining of Dean's horrific experience in Hell with the current bout of his flu, all without compromising your 'hunt' concept. It was gripping as well as emotionally rich. Thank you for such a wonderful read. I really hope you have another story in the pipeline/your brain to bring out the angst in those Winchester brothers!

You captured a story which made me laugh and made me cry. Great job! I look forward to reading more from you!

Your story was good. I had hard time trying to figure out how much time had passed between certain events. When Dean came home from the bar...was this the same day he woke up on the couch? You should indicate passage of time by dividing your story into little sections:
Dean shouted in horror. Bobby was dead.
Dean strode into the house hours later, drunk.
Something like that. It's easier to see that some time has passed. :)
Otherwise, good story! I would also make bobby say "idjits," instead if "eejits."

This was a beautiful story, bluenettle - wonderful characterizations! You hurt Dean so good, with just the right amount of comfort from Sam. Castiel was downright scary, but I agree with your assessment of his detachment from Dean's discomfort at that stage of the series. Since I'm reading it so late in the game (fairly recently got turned on to SN the series and am making up for lost time with the fanfic), the story has some pretty strong AU elements, but that doesn't weaken the impact. I loved the storyline - you did such a great job! I don't know if you'll ever get this review, but this is a strong vote of confidence for your writing, and a plea for more, more, more! Thanks for such a great fic . . .

YES...this was a beautiful fic! Thank you for sharing it with us...poor Dean.

I really enjoyed this story. I like how Sam and Dean can't save everyone and that both choices were bad ones really.
I particularly like the bit in the epilogue when Castiel is explaining why it was better that they didn't burn the school and Dean's reaction. You write Castiel very well.

Pretty good DD
I think Dean is more affected because of hell than he shows in the series... xD And your fanfic kinda looks like you agree with me, right? ~
Well, see ya next, then o/

Oh, I like this! I had just been thinking about how I'd really love a story set before Yellow Fever that dealt with Dean and his time in Hell and this hit the spot. Nice writing, good case, and a strong determined Dean - no matter how battered he may be. I like your Sam and Castiel also. Well done!

Did I already comment on your story? I don't know honestly...but who cares...
I really love this story so freaking much! Seriously, I LOVE it! It's perfekt, really, it is. There is so much angst and hurt!dean (huh, and I love panicking!dean...*sighs*)...and this dean-has-changed-from-season1!dean-into-season4afterhell!dean - aspect (what a sentence..-.-').Hope you get what I mean *sighs*. Uh, and that Tim kid - that was one creepy and spookey kid *whoa*. Honestly, there was sth like a film before my eyes, your style of writing is so amazing and fantastic...dunno what to say now :)
Keep writing like that, really. And again: Love this story (and I SO laughed about the ending...hardass!Cas is great and this ending with him laughing about Deans answer full of deanism is so hilarious!)
Greetings from germany,

I loved how you entangled the fever with the fire so it was hard to tell sometimes where the flu ended and the memories of hell began. Great job!
| PADavis chapter 11 . 2/3/2009
Very glad to see a wrap up- well not to have the story over, but an update, even if it was the last chapter ... heck. Liked this, very much. Nice indeterminate ending with Castiel too. Great job on this fic - enjoyed it start to finish.
