Great filler scene between scenes!
That episode was crying out for stories like yours to be written!
I totally agree with your note at the bottom! I have noticed one or two things that give me hope although I'm not sure how the whole drinking demon blood thing is going to go down with Dean! He'll either completely lose it with Sam or go all protective and concerned that his brother is an addict, no matter what it is!

That was nicely done. Personally I too can see the bond is still there - however hard Kripke is trying to bury it - and I also agree that Sam is doing most of what he is doing out of a desire to protect Dean. I just wish they'd get all these secrets out in the open and start facing the apocalypse TOGETHER..

Awesome tag to the episode and I loved the way you feilled in the scenes between Dean resuing Sammy and Then burning Adam's body. Wow, you so had me on edge waiting to see how Sammy would get through this. Thank goodness Dean thought to cll Bobby and got Sammy the help he desperatel needed. A hunter doctor-LOVE IT!

This was perfect! Just what was needed in the ep- just what Kripke screwed us out of!

So lovely to see Dean's care and love for Sam... this is the perfect tag. And this: scary...
'He hated the deception but, for now, it was how it had to be. If it came to it, he could live with Dean hating him; he couldn’t live with losing him again. He’d keep Dean safe, no matter what he had to do.'

Great tag, I've read a few for this missing scene and this ranks up there with the best of them. Loved the use of their location to bring to create a thoughful and believable scenario to bring in an office...yeh Pastor Jim refernece!

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. :)
| AnickaMarie chapter 1 . 4/27/2009
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.
| D Mentis chapter 1 . 4/27/2009
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,
| klutzysunshine chapter 1 . 4/27/2009
Great fic. I really loved this. Poor Hurt!Sammy. At least Dean was there for him.
