Thanks so much for this story! I know I'm late to the party, but I still wanted to let you know that your story deserves way more reviews than it got. It's the very best Dean-after-Hell story that I've ever read. He's messed up, but still kicking, and you portrayed his relationship with Sam very cleverly. Loved it!

Okay - Sam hadn't left with Ruby. Okay.
But still - this story makes me ache.
Dean's broken by severe PTSD, and Sam is trying so hard to be big brother, trying so hard to be strong. But he's distracted. And it's Gina - a stranger - who end up comforting Dean, not Sam. Don't know if that's how you intended Sam to come across...I know I read reviews that lauded Sam's taking care of his brother in this story...I don't see it. I see Sam trying, but failing miserably because he's so blinded by Ruby and mission and demon blood. And that crap at the end, where he tells Dean Ruby was just a dream when she clearly was there - the lying when Dean is already so vulnerable - it angers me. I love Sam. But not this Sam. Not the Sam from S4.
But I love this fic. Excellent job.

Reading this story for the first time and up until this chapter I didn't know what to think. But my heart and head are chanting "you suck, Sammy...you suck at taking care of your brother. Hell, you suck at BEING a brother." Poor Dean. And yet, he dug out that grave with his bare hands, injured and half out of his head, and his little brother has the nerve to think of him as weak. There's compassion in Sam, but it's all messed up. He's distracted. And that pisses me off. God...I hope it gets better from here.
Beautifully written though. Powerful.

I tumbled across your stories via Zatnikatel's latest complete story on lj and started reading about two days ago (evening and nights, really), but I'm very pleased to have found you here, too! So, since Zat already commented on every chapter, I just keep to the entire story. I LOVED it! So sad and full of misunderstandings, some snapping at each other, yet hopeful at the same time and like Zat already mentioned, they still orbit around each other. Very nicely done!
...but not just this story. I also loved the previous one "Please Exit Hell Quietly by the Rear Doors". The end of this one was fabulous and I just loved this line:
"Dean - fragile, brittle and hollow as a drum. Probably more than a little bit psychotic.
As good a hero as the world was going to get and a damn sight better than some."
I also really, really enjoyed all your other SN-stories. My favourite of those shorter ones is definitely "Care and Feeding", where you managed to make Dean so very Dean without him saying a single word. Very beautifully done!
So, thanks loads for all of them and please keep the SN-fics coming!

Good job. :)

This,dude,this was awesome!I loved the brotherly love,and there was much of it despite some brotherly captured them very well,both of them. My heart hurt for Dean and sometimes I SO felt sorry for cared well for Dean and Dean rescued *lol*
Aw and I really had to swallow reading the last part of the last chap. After the apocalypse...yeah man, I wont give up hope that things will get with the situation now,when it's very hard to watch and my heart hurts so much these days,thinking about our boys and Lucifer and what Dean and Sam might become. So, you really gave the story the needed and fitting sad and teary-making touch, I loved that one! But there was also very winchester-ly humor,I loved that too. I liked Gina and her son!
Thanks for this story!

Oh thank God! He never went with her! You have no idea how happy that makes me… broke my heart to think Sam might have left Dean alone and defenseless like he did that very first night Dean was back even though he knew something might be after him…
So much in this chapter:Dean’s despair over the fact he might be losing Sam to Ruby is really palpable and his hopelessness over it really calls out to that depression he was sunk into tail end of S4.
‘All his emotions, good and bad, were beginning to register in the very flow of blood through his veins. It was an odd, almost exhilarating sensation.’
Uh-oh, and her reaction to this is most disturbing…
‘Not Lilith. Not today.
Because Dean can’t deal with it.’
This: so very chilling, because I really can’t tell whether this sympathy or contempt for his brother.
What a great story, dude. Thoroughly enjoyed it as one of the most realistic portrayals I’ve seen of that whole S4 ‘push me-pull you’ thing that was going on with the brothers. There’s no sappy, sentimental solution, no hugs, no apologies. They just aren’t right – but still they orbit around each other and can’t bring themselves to leave or ever stop being there if the other needs them.
I really look forward to your next fic… ;-)

‘Their easy, well-worn routines were falling apart. Mess everywhere, first-aid kit nearly empty, not a single bag of chips or can of soda to their names. They hadn’t even laid the salt lines.’
Gah. Speaks of such depression in both of them, actually…
The ‘graph where Sam dresses the hand and suddenly realizes his brother maybe isn’t reacting because he has endured far worse in the Pit is very poignant…
Oh, the Ruby scene is very creepy. The thought of her being there with Dean maybe[?] not aware of it, and so defenseless… even worse that she’s there while he is apparently caught up in some sort of Hell flashback/night terror… tho of course I say that with the hindsight of her double cross.
‘He wanted to cling to those satin arms until her breath panted hot against his ear and his blood hummed with life. He could have that, and Dean, too, safely back from wherever he thought he was.’
No… and Dean waking at the end to find Sam gone was really heartbreaking.

‘It was hidden inside Dean’s jacket. Although Sam hadn’t gotten a good look he felt maybe it wasn’t really too bad, given the energy his brother had displayed over the last twenty minutes or so.’
Oops. I sense that might turn out to be a big mistake…
‘He watched Dean shrug his jacket tight around his shoulders as he walked towards the door of the bar and had a horrible feeling that his brother didn’t even really want a drink that bad, that all he really wanted was just to get away.’
That’s just incredibly sad…
Love the bitching in the bar: It’s so reminiscent of the beginning of DtaH. And then you twist it into such pathos, and such insight into the deep hurt caused by those harsh words in S&V. And Dean’s unwilling realization that his brother might be something to be feared is so bleak.
Very powerful flashback[?] at Gina’s house. Scary and brutal…
| Zatnikatel chapter 5 . 9/16/2009
Love the symmetry of both brothers looking for the cellar… suggests a subconscious connection even though they seem very disconnected on a conscious level…
‘Sam had heard Dean called many unpleasant names before. Some of them had even been a perfect fit. Hell, he’d called him some colorful things himself and meant every word of it at the time. But it seemed to Sam that checking yourself into eternal damnation for the sake of your brother was so very far away from being of no account that it was practically funny. If, of course, it hadn’t been so hopelessly fucking tragic.
The rage he felt was sudden and overwhelming.’
Great, just great. Wish we had seen more of this protectiveness on Show… not that Dean would have tolerated it, of course…
‘He was a great hunter, nearly as good as Dad. Better than Dean, apparently. Stronger, smarter, bl-blah blah.
Yeah, and here I am still saving your ass, Sammy-boy. You remember that.*
Oh yeah. I needed that!
Fantastic how Dean’s setting the fire n the living world impinges on this limbo Sam is trapped in. What a great idea…

Jeez, the opening sequence in the house is really creepy. Makes me think of The Others, when the woman can hear the living…
Whole house set-up is so eerie…
God. I literally jumped when she came through the wall. It was like I was watching it.
‘Tragedy and madness ... that was what he could smell. It suddenly tickled his gag reflex. Sam felt the freezing puff of his own breath pass his lips and saw the vapor hanging in the air before him.
“Fuck,” he said with feeling. “I walked right into this, didn’t I?”
Sam cursed everything he could lay claim to then - his one-track mind, his inability to help his brother, the rolling tide of lousy Winchester luck. Damn. Something had told Dean this house shouldn’t be here. Dean, who’d been struggling so badly, had felt it from out there on the mountainside. And Sam, with all his superior Spidey-sense and freaky mojo honed to the nth degree ... Sam had missed it.’
I loves me some smart!Dean…
