My aunt died of cancer exactly like this.
Whoa you just
I can't even
You got it nailed, dude.
So touching and true and the peace and quiet of it all was there and I just
Wow. Very beautiful. Thank you.

The first time I read this story, I was simply awed by this chapter. You took something that I fear/dread - watching a loved one die slowly, and made it something not to be feared, something dignified and precious and sacred and peaceful. This was beautiful. Captivating. And so utterly REAL.
Your words are simple, but your succinct, careful descriptions add depths and layers to every scene. Likewise, the emotion the characters experience are straightforward and honest rather than manipulated or overplayed. I cannot adequately explain the amount respect that I have for this story, especially this chapter, and for you as a writer, for putting words to this inescapable aspect of the human experience.
The first time I read this, I made the mistake of not putting it in my favorites. It took me months to find it again. It is now in my favorites forever.

You've broken my heart. Actually made me cry. I actually can't remember the last time a fanfiction made me cry, either.

THIS IS SOOO GOOD I CRIED SOOO HARD!
Hey, you know what song would go PERFECTLY with this story?

Omg! How have I gone so long without reading this? How is that possible? This is bloody freaking amazing! Beautiful writing with a beautiful storyline and ending. I am in love. Seriously. I'm amazed this flew under my radar. Very nicely done. :) and I loved the ending! I'm not sure I could of read all the way threw if this was a death fic. Everybody needs a happy ending every now and then.
And also, I'm terribly sorry about your mom, though I'm sure I'm a bit late on the uptake.
Again, beautiful, stunning job!

I read this story yesterday and was thinking about it so much, that I didn't know what to write for a review! I have never had a story that made me cry like I did - especially with chapter 15. You did a phenomenal job writing this. I could actually put myself within the story. And, it made me think about a loved one that I lost nearly a year ago now. I am so glad you gave the story a happy ending!
I am sorry to hear about you mother, but hope you are doing okay.

This a really well written story! I teared up when Sammy died, wow, really well described.
Great great story! thank you!

I liked how you used a nephilim as the healing mechanism in this story. The half-angels occur in the bible but are rarely used in modern fantasy stories.
You wrote Dean's slow acceptance of his brother's medical directives very well. I can see how Dean would have to accept his brother's wishes where his own decision would be to NEVER give up anything to keep Sam alive.
You must live in a more fortunate state than South Carolina. SC is TERRIBLE for pain medication. Patients are forced to go on hospice care before being allowed extensive pain medications. My brother-in-law, who lived on the same farm, rallied hugely when he was placed on hospice care simply because it tripled the drugs he was allowed.

Wow. This was an amazing story. I had to draw it out over two nights of reading because I needed to read something happier before I went to bed last night. The last half of the story had me reading through my tears but it was so worth it and I'm soooo happy that you gave the boys a happy ending.
I'm off to read something incredibly fluff and schmoopy to dry my tears with (because I might have some happy tears from Sam's recovery ). Just wanted to say that I really loved this.

No matter how many times I read this, I cry like I will never stop. I can't say I enjoy reading all the bits...but I do enjoy the happy ending. Thank you for posting.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. It was so hard when mine passed, but it gets better in time. You will allways miss her but it doesn't hurt so much with time.
As for the story I'm so glad you gave the boys a happy ending.
Awesome writing. I just love the way you have John as the caring father. Can't wait to read more of your stories.

This was the first fic ever where tears were streaming down my face in chapter 15. The story was so sad and I just...no words can describe how beautiful this was. I was happy that Sam got brought back because I couldn't deal with him dying. *tears* Great story.

first fic ever to bring tears to my eyes
| Charlotte chapter 16 . 3/7/2011
I'm speechless right now... the story was amazing and so emotional. I've shed some (read: many) tears while reading it. It's just finished and I am SO glad that you let Sammy live!
You are such a great talent in writing stories, so please, please keep goin'!
I'm so sorry to read about your mom...
Big hugs from Belgium,
