|Reviews for In the Blood|

This story was a wonderful gift, so if reviews are your gift how could I not? You really captured the "essence" of the brothers here. Not overly sappy, just honest concern on both their parts. Your OC was fleshed just enough to be believable but not of the best, if not THE best codas I've read. Thank you.

Loved it! I wish they would have included some more of something like this in the episode, but at least I got a little limpsam :) I see what your saying about Sam and Dean maybe not reconciling their differences before the season finale. Though some stuff in recent eps reminds me of how much they do mean to each other (like Dean refusing to leave Sam when he knew Lilith was coming and begging Castiel to interfere). I also liked that you included the "Here you go, buddy". I didnt know if I heard that right, and I was so happy to see he did say that.

Sigh. I believe that you are right. As strained as Sam and Dean's relationship is right now, I think there is hope - but I don't think we'll see it this season. It'll probably be the big kicker that will have us hankering for the show all summer long!
Anyway, great fic. Interesting and thought-provoking. I loved the hole-fill-in. Yes, Sam's recovery was...shocking. I'd think even Dean would raise an eyebrow at the sudden superhero-like healing ability to be standing around chit-chatting after frigging BLEEDING OUT! My favorite parts included Sam's thoughts about his blood tasting different and how "There was no apocalypse, no demon blood, no Lilith – just the two of them, with Dean taking care of him like he’d done so often before".

I so hope they gonna make up... eventually...
I really loved your tag... a really amazing and emotional one... thanks so much for sharing

Thanks for helping fill in that enormous hole the writers left at the end of JtS! You did a great job - Big Brother Dean was done wonderfully, and was a welcome sight after so much angst this season. I also really liked your solution to the whole "Sam is bleeding to death but we can't take him to a hospital" situation. I'm working on a tag to this ep myself, and really struggled with finding a workable solution to that connundrum. I think you did a better job!
Good work overall - keep it up. :)

Yay! Another tag to fill in some of that time that was definitely missed. You did a great job. Nice thinking on pulling out a friend of Jim's to do the patch-up work. Also, the voices in Sam's head from the demon blood was an interesting detail.

Thanks for this. I felt the same way about this episode. Sam's injuries were too grave to just walk away from. There had to be repercussions for losing all that blood.
I really like your epilogue for the episode!
| Darkaina chapter 1 . 4/27/2009
now this is how it should have ended, with Dean taking care of Sam, i miss, the hurt puppy dog eyes, and i catch the guilty eyes, that Sam throws at Dean all the time, i understand he is confused, and knows, and yet doesn't know what he's doing,

Great fic. I really loved this. Poor Hurt!Sammy. At least Dean was there for him.

This is exactly the tie in to JTS that I was looking for - and I was NOT disappointed. You managed to make everything make sense; pulled in Chuck and Ruby and the whole list of OCs in the series that have made it topsy turvy for our boys. You even took the location into account and pulled a plausible card to heal Sam with a doctor. Absolutely brilliant!
I, too, have seen a glimmer of hope over the last few episodes, but I'm still very leery that the boys will make it. I like that Dean is crisper than he was - thanks for the reminder about Dean Smith and Sam Wessen's adventures - so he can read Sam a touch better.
Just, wow. Really great stuff!

Wonderful tag - I really enjoyed it.
I hope you are right - and I believe they will reconcile, but will be different. Sam and Dean have both changed this Season and I think ultimately it will benefit them both.

I was really hoping that someone would do a missing scene for this ep., and you delivered well. Great job...love the Sammy angst!
| darksupernatural chapter 1 . 4/27/2009
This was a wonderful tag and I love your take on the missing scenes. I've read a few but since I didn't see all the ep I'm assuming that there's a lot more to work out between the brothers besides a little blood loss. Your tag did a lot of that for me, hearing Dean say "Buddy" and call Sam Sammy. It went a long way towards normal for them. Thanks for sharing!

Hey, I really liked this short story! Like you I had been wondering about what happened and your idea makes perfect sense. I was glad to see some brotherly moments again during the last episodes, finally!
