Loved having this episode continued, Dean caring for Sam. I really liked your take on Sam's thoughts about drinking the demon blood. Thank you.

That part of the episode always bugged me! He lost a LOT of blood, and then just popped up and was fine! This was wonderful! Thanks!

i am relatively new to the Supernatural world on tv and in fanfiction. I wenr on a netflix marathon to watch all eps before this season started. So far, in the fanfiction I have read, you are the only one who has done this missing scene in Jump The Shark. Thank you so much for doing it, and doing a great job on it. I always felt it was too much of a jump in going from Sam having severe life threatening cuts on his arm to standing by Dean when giving Adam a hunter's burial. They never even gave a time passing frame

Wow, really well written. Very nice job capturing the point of view of someone about to pass out for the entire first half of this one!

This was such a moving look at Sam's inner thoughts during the 'hiding the demon blood thing from Dean' period. I, too, can hardly bear it when the brothers are being pulled apart, and so needed to understand more of what was going on in Sam's mind and heart. Thank you for this.

Again you gave us what the show didn't with this fic. I always thought they glossed over Sam's injuries too easily. Loved too that you had Sam concerned that the ghouls noticed his blood was different but it was so in character with Sam at the time that he continued to hide him drinking demon blood from Dean because he felt he was doing the right thing, just so sad that in the end he found out Ruby had duped him for her own ends and killing Lilith broke the final seal.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THIS! While I LOVE the scene with Sam captured by the ghouls and Dean having to fight the one while Sam is laying there bleeding, the ending ALWAYS left me frustrated with its lack of acknowledgement of the life-threatening injuries Sam really had. (And screaming at them to get some first aid lessons before they kill each other with their "helping.") The sudden end always leaves me feeling cheated and you have fixed that problem...with a brilliant solution, I might add!

Very well-written tag. I have to say that this episode was not one of my favourites (and that scene with the ghouls drinking Sam's blood truly grossed me out), but this was a very good between scenes moment. You really got into Season 4 Sam's mentality I think, especially towards the end when he was thinking about whether he should tell Dean or not and then decided not to for the 'greater good' - so sad really. Season 4 is by far my least favourite season and we still haven't really seen the reconciliation between the brothers that we all long for - the 100th episode came close to it yet but we still need a HUG and a true going back to just being brothers. Sigh. Maybe Season 6 will finally meet those needs...

This was an amazing, amazing fic and just in right place - I, too, was more than a bit surprised how quickly Sam was good again after losing so much blood. That wasn't realistic anymore - but luckily you've made it better!
Again I love the relationship between the brothers. Sam's trust in Dean, Dean's worry and the very much over-grown parental instinct (as I call his attitude to Sam). In season four we didn't get too many brotherly moments, but Dean helping Sam off the table was totally one of them. This fic was so great because it was canon. Though I would have loved them making peace, it wouldn't have been real anymore. And Sam's thoughts in the end of this fic made their own, bitter taste to this; it reminded that though everything seemed to be good again, many things really weren't.
I loved the way you had written Sam leaning to Dean's shoulder - I could see that and aww how cute... *melts* Just.. great. I don't have enough words, but I know that they would have needed much more of that during the season.
You solved well the thing that Sam had to be cured in the house, it's amazing how you made up that hunter-doctor. It's very believable and fits to the episode better than any hospital would have.
I loved this one of yours, too.

Such an interesting episode, so many fans didn't like it because of the added brother, but I thought it was GREAT! As well as your tag - simply lovely.
Loved poor Sam, blood everywhere, about to pass out and finding Dean, knowing Adam was their brother, too. You stated everything nicely.

I agree with you, Season 4 was tough on those of us who fell in love with the close relationship between Sam and Dean from the first three Seasons.
Kudos on your explanation of why Sam continues to keep secrets from Dean and thank you for giving this episode a nice big helping of the comfort Season 4 was lacking.
Keep up the good work!
