Man, you are such an amazing author, lol. I've been trying to read a Supernatural fic by someone else and... it's taking me so long. I'm so used to your great storytelling and characterizations. I just love your stories. Your insight into their minds are just... awesome. I believe that each and every one of these thoughts you've written would have been going through their minds. But really, though. You've done an excellent job with them. I really love it when you give us an insight into their minds - give us their thoughts on situations. n.n Especially in this situation. HUGE turning point for them - and the show!
I was so excited when Sam held Ruby so Dean could kill her. So excited. What a bitch. xD And I completely agree with the two sentences, showing us the brothers we all know and love. It's so crazy watching the beginning of the show (with Season 1) after watching the very end. So much changes between them it's so sad. And just so many things happen... ...I think I'm going to watch some more before bed. Lol.
Keep up the amazing work! ...I'm running out of stories to read! ;-;

Dude, you have just opened my eyes to something I had never thought of ... the whole 'distraction' theory ... the rogue angels purposely goading his doubts and keeping him back from Sam ...
and it makes such perfect sense. I mean, I knew Ruby was evil from the outset (or at least very much hoped!) and when she declared her scheming, so many story arcs were revealed as being woven neatly together and I was impressed with the ingenuity and complexity of it all ...
Here you have skillfully done the same thing with the other side in this all out war. And the penny has dropped!
Thank you for this tag. It is expertly written and so totally believable. I sincerely hope your premise is confirmed as the new season opens because it explains why the brothers have been acting the way they have. The Angels and the Demons both know what they mean to one another. And so they tore them apart. Awesome.

Really enjoyed all the thoughts behind the thoughts of Dean and Sam.
Where is it going next...now that is the question isn't it?
Hopefully we will see Sam and Dean starting to repair the damage.
Nice job...really enjoyed it.

You did just a great job with this. I thought you punched it with lots of good things - loved the Rogue angels who were busy staging a coup. Loved the 'It was literally going to cost him the world.' Ugh - I LOVED that line!
Sam thinking about Cindy McCellan, RN was written so beautifully. I would think that this is going to be something that Sam is going to carry with him deep down for a long time. I'm interested to see where Kripke and the gang leave off on when we enter season 5. Will it be right after the bright light or will some time have gone by - it will be a great ride, I'm sure. I think they're going to bring it!
Loved the end with the boys having their hands on each other, fist full of each other's jacket - you played it well and I thought it was all terrific!
| Kara Sullivan chapter 1 . 6/10/2009
Excellent interpretation of a heart breaking episode! I loved the episode, even though it was incredibly painful to watch, but the parts that you brought out were what redeemed it. I loved the fact that it ended with the two brothers together, holding onto each other, Sam apologizing and Dean calling him Sammy again. Well done!
| Carolej126 chapter 1 . 6/5/2009
I have to say that I really, really enjoyed this. You nailed the boys' thoughts perfectly, and I agree that, with that look, Dean absolved Sam of everything - and the boys were once again a united front.
| Little Miss Bump chapter 1 . 6/4/2009
Girl, you have no idea how perfectly this fit my interpretation of that season four finale. That look that Dean gave him, the way they both grabbed each other's jackets...and suddenly the apocalypse didn't seem so bad anymore. Sure, Lucifer's rising and hell's about to break loose on earth, but hey! my boys are back to being brothers again. That's all I wanted.
Oh, I LOVED this line:
- "In one look, Dean absolved him everything."
I was like, YES!
Thanks for posting this, it was a great way to treat myself after the end of college exam finals. *sighs happily* And what better reward than a healed bond between two of my favourite fictional brothers?
*knocks ping-pong ball back into your court*

Glad to have you back. This finale was amazing. I love your expansion to it... I can't wait to find out where Kripke is going with this and I am dying to read everybody's tags... If you continued this, where would you go with it?

Haven't yet seen the epi as it won't air here for another 5 weeks but have heard what went down and your tag fit perfectly. Great to have both Dean and Sam's POV. Both of them have been played like a fiddle this season, duped and lied to - Dean unwittingly opening the first seal and Sam lied to so he would kill Lilith, opening the final seal and allowing Lucifer to be set free. Guess they have learned the hard way the only people they can trust are each other and Bobby.
| pandora jazz chapter 1 . 5/25/2009
I really like how you gave us the thoughts from both brothers.
They were both played and lied to this season, so painful to watch. Hopefully, they will now remember who they need to trust and be honest with, each other, brothers.
I'm going to have to read this again. You did a great job with the different points and thanks for capturing the moment when the brothers killed Ruby. Loved Sam's thought, 'This time, this one last time, he would hunt evil with his brother.'
Thanks for sharing your story with us.

"Sam would kill Lilith and he’d die doing it. It was fitting, beautiful almost in its symmetry: Dad for Dean, Dean for Sam, Sam for Dean. Only their family could complete a circle of self-sacrifice."
I love how you pulled that Winchester logic back into all of this. Very true.
A compelling look into each of the boy's thoughts and processes as the beginning of the end nears. Will they finally realize that they only have each other and work together to stop Lucifer? I still see them going out with a bang, but I hope they finally succeed at something, together.

Awesome little story
| vonnie836 chapter 1 . 5/24/2009
I really like how you put this together, starting with Dean's POV and how he sees the truth and accepts it, then going to Sam and show his POV, bringing them both together in the end when Dean rushes in. I loved it because you wrote down what was going in the guys heads during the episode. Hugs, Vonnie

That was a really nice, even-handed look at the culmination of Season 4, the way both boys were duped, both turned their backs on the other for what they believed to be all the rights reasons but in fact were all the wrong ones.
I liked the part where Sam is thinking about making the ultimate sacrifice to save Dean as some kind of Winchester version of the circle of life which is actually the complete opposite. Although I'm not so sure Sam thought Dean was coming to kill him - especially with Dean shouting "Sammy!" through the door instead of "Sam". I think that might have given Sam a clue!
I think Sam's "I'm sorry," was probably the best line of the whole season, and the jacket tugging? Oh yeah. Broke my heart. Seriously.
I wondered too whether Sam's purpose wasn't just to break the final Seal and raise Lucifer - as Lucifer is, presumably, going to need a meatsuit... I hope they don't go in that direction, although I do like me a bit of Evil!Sam, I have to say!
