Every time I read this-and I've read it at least half a dozen times now-I get choked up with tears. Powerful, powerful stuff written so well; you have a beautiful talent. Really. The build-up and the imagery is so intense and lyrical.

That was amazing. Wow, just wow - I'm just speachless and wow - you wrote this before the big reveal too of the fact that Sam was Lucifer's vessel. This story was just amazing. Thank you for sharing.

i have no words but HOLY CRAP! that was a really good story. That was intense. but one question. are they dead? at the end of the story which i loved by the way are they dead? usually id kill the author for killing the characters but i didnt mind the possibly dead characters. I was sucked into the story i could practically feel the stars falling from the sky as you described this. Thanks~

Hm. This time I just kinda' 'Mah'ed and make googily eyes at the computer. Which also translates to love.

...DAMN I shouldn't have read that this late at night. It's really really good, but now I'm terrified to move.

This is amazing! Its just brilliant! The way you've written it, the way you've described Dean's emotions throughout it all, and then the ending...Kind of reminds me of a poem about Jesus and footprints in the sand.

That was INTENSE
A really interesting look at the apocalypse
I really like how, in the end Dean only stabbed him to end Sam's suffering
But... What happens next? Have all the signs stopped? Since Sams demon powers are gone, will they have to get another baby, start the process al over again? O M G
Anyways, awesome story

oh, wow. That was truly brilliant. It made me worry, fear, and cry along with the boys, which is something only a talented writer can do.
I am a big fan of Supernatural so I follow the storyline well. I know I am only one person but I thought that you captured Dean's obvious internal battle, pain and love for his brother magnificently.

Wait, so is Dean in some kind of visionworld?

I finally got the time to give this story the attention it deserves, and wow was I not disappointed! I love the idea of Sam himself being the final Seal - and I think it's a plausible one, even if Kripke doesn't have the budget it do the Apocalypse as grandly or as impressively as you did in this story!
I really loved how this started out quite slow and built up into a frenzy of angst and movement and devastation, and the little inserts of the effects of Sam's condition on the rest of the world were really vivid and incredibly well chosen.
I do think it would take the end of the world for Dean to kill Sam, and I think you were right that neither Castiel nor Uriel nor God Himself would ever be able to persuade him.
Fantastic stuff! Well done!

Wow! I absolutely adore apocalyptic stories and this one is so well done. Brava!
You've written Dean in this story so brilliantly. He literally has been to hell and back for Sam. Love how he swallows his fear and does anything possible to keep Sam safe and as comfortable as possible. Tries to keep Bobby safe too. He'll do anything except kill his brother and live on. In true Dean fashion, he will only kill his brother to save him from a more painful death, with every intention of killing himself next before the world crashes down around them. :(
You have such a wonderful and creative mind. All of the scenes describing the deterioration of the world and how people reacted to it were inspired. Loved the tolling of the bells around the world - in my mind that has always been a symbol of impending death.
Just loved the last three sections. The brotherly love and bond cannot be broken - no matter what. *Let's hope Kripke remembers this :(*
Thanks for sharing this amazing story with us. Your writing tugs at my heartstrings in a very special way. Until next time...

Where have you been? I SO miss your writing! No one does awesome AU like you do! What an absolutely fabulous theory on the end of the world. Depressing, but amazing!
You start out with a bang:
"The day Sam loses his sight, the sun turns black."
And then just keep building the tension:
"One day, Sam wakes up in the early morning hours coughing blood...On the screen, a newsman, wearing a beige suit, is illuminated from behind with a large spotlight. “…perhaps a prank,” he is saying in his deep and professional voice as Dean comes into the kitchen. “Others believe it is blood.”"
Man we know we're in some shit now.
It keeps going and going and I know, I KNOW, that's it's going to end with an amazing revelation, because that's what you do. And I was not disappointed.
Please write some more! Tags? One shots? Multi-chapter fics? Just SOMEthing!

I've said it once and I'll say it again: you really need to publish something. Honestly, I've never read anyone's writing that was so... so... amazing.
I loved the little snippets of people's lives around the world being affected by Sam's disease. They made the whole story seem that much more... real. (My mind is blanking on descriptive words, and if I keep using amazing I'm going to sound really repetitive)
You write Dean's character so well... I've seen episodes of the show where they do a worse job. You really manage to get inside his psyche and are able to put that emotion down on paper. (Well... not paper per say)
Your writing is always breathtakingly sad (In a good way) and I hope you continue to write more. Fanfic or published, I don't really care, as long as I have the ability to read your stunning writing style in the future. Thank you for posting.
