Aww, that hug! I loved Sam's "octopus-reach".
And then, you actually made them really /talk/ about everything, and managed to keep both sides relatable. Loved that. I also really liked the part about Dean being relieved that Sam went to Bobby for help instead of trying to deal on his own
The way you described Dean gradually getting more power over his body again was great, and worried!Sammy was cute.
I also liked the humour bits, e.g. re: holding his breath: "Which, in hindsight, had been a bad idea. Dean was ready and willing to admit that." - Poor Sam, but lol!

I really loved that Dean was so embarrassed by his inability to perform the most basic things, like going to the bathroom. It's so Dean-like, you'd think he'd be glad that he's getting better, but no he's embarrassed.
"They were so never going to talk about this, ever. And if Sam ever brought it up again, no matter the situation, that was the moment from which on Dean would start his life as an only child." Just brilliant!

I have to admit - I groaned when Sam said - you don't know what it's like to have demon blood... it worked, but it's my own little pet peeve. Like fans who were getting all upset over Dean and his Hell problems... everytime I read or hear that phrase I want to use Sam's line "boo hoo". Get over it.
whew - what a relief to get that off my chest.
Now... I loved your concept - it was a great idea and I was hooked the entire time.

Man I loved this story!
Brotherly love, angst, tears, it had it all!
If only there would be a moment like this in the show! The boys need to talk it out!
Argh! Kripke! Give the boys a chance to talk!
Anyhoo, thanks for the great story.

You are killing me here...why oh why can't this happen in the show...I don't want them to fight and all that..okay rant over...great great update...loved that they finally confronted each other...my favorite bit was this "No. First we put it all on the table. Everything. No holds barred. Anything you haven't told me yet, you tell me. Anything you want to know, you ask and I'll tell. No more secrets from now on, Sam."
And Sam nodded, without hesitation, and the amount of relief Dean felt at that was ridiculous." great job!

Loved all the brotherly moments, and yay for them talking things out!

Aw, love you for this, I was hoping so much we would see the stages of Dean’s recovery and it had everything I wished for, endearing, precious brother moments (fav one when Dean held his breath and Sam just panicked, this kind of said it all, too adorable for words these two). God, and how wonderful they talked about their issues (“If we can't trust Heaven and Hell anymore, we fall back to the only people we can trust. And that's ourselves. A small smile spread over Sam's face. And each other." OH YES, always I hope!) – miss this dreadfully at the show, they rarely touch each other anymore, it’s killing me, so the hug at the end was the best thing ever for me, “…Dean…clinging to Sam just as much as the other way around”, a golden moment. Truly amazing, that’s what this story is!

I'm hoping to God Bobby has figured out that Dean's knife wound simply wouldn't have been enough to kill him! Unless, of course, Sam thinks that the stab wound was just for the heck of it, and a spell is what killed his brother?
Please Bobby, figure out what's wrong so they don't end up salting and burning Dean!

I loved how Sam continued to help Dean as he regained movement of his body. Also how much Sam was listening to Dean, so when Dean held his breath, it scared Sam.
If only we could have an episode where the brothers laid everything out on the table, actually talked, only a fantasy, but at least possible in fanfiction.
Wonderful job with the brothers and their conversation.
Thanks again for sharing your story with us.
Until next time, take care.

GAH! I KNEW Ruby would know Dean wasn't dead! She's a demon and a witch - she'd recognize it right away!
Holy freakin' crap this story is gripping. I just discovered it and am enjoying every syllable. :)

I love you, do you know that? I am in absolute awe over the way you continously write their emotions! I love it and still you manage to throw in a little humor as well, like the Unmentionable Incident lol.
Can't wait for the *sob* last chapter to be written, Sigh...I promise to write a lot more thourough review then, because now I'm late for work, I just had to read this before going anywhere!
LOVE THIS STORY!
Happy future writing
| Von chapter 7 . 4/29/2009
I think that's very sweet. It's so rare and lovely to find a fic where the brothers issues are actually sorted out.. they lay down all their cards and remember what it was like to be brothers.
Thanks for writing this!
| marchforward chapter 7 . 4/29/2009
Absolutely riveting! And what a great story concept! I could really feel the frustration Dean was going through and the agony Sam experienced. The only thing I would have liked different was more of Dean coming back to life. You wrote that part so well! Good job!
| bhoney chapter 7 . 4/29/2009
Aw...why, OH WHY, can't this happen on the show? LOVED that the boys talked it all out, can't wait to see the "no holds barred" talk, and I'm still hoping Ruby will get her butt kicked.
I loved all the ways Sam took care of and helped Dean as he was getting full function back to his body, and especially loved that Sam went all panicky when Dean held his breath. So sweet!
I'm also really glad Sam addressed the stuff Ruby said, and the stuff from S&V, and even admitted that Dean had been right about not trusting Ruby and using his powers so much, and that it was GOOD that Dean was holding him back. Happy, happy day!
Still loving this story!

Wow! Awesome chapter!
I love to read about both brother's versions of what's going on in their lives right now. I really hate Sam this season but reading his intentions and hopes in stories helps me see his side of the story... So thanks for that. :)
I hope Dean's wound is okay, I'm a little worried there...
