| Vinelle chapter 3 . 3/27
I've been scouring this fandom for the past week for good Castiel and/or Jimmy fanfiction, not quite sure what I was looking for but never satisfied with anything I found, until I found this. This is it, the closure I wanted for the Novaks and the admission I wanted of what having Castiel has cost. It's more than flawless, it's perfect. This is what I was looking for.
I take my hat off to you, for this might just be the best fic this fandom has to offer.

Wow, I love this story. I found it a while ago and just recently stumbled back on it. Fantastic piece of work, and super sad too. Thanks for writing it!

I love your story.

This...this is simply stunning. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this story, but it's the first piece of Supernatural that has made me cry, canon for fanon alike. I always felt sorry for Amelia and Claire (and, honestly, Jimmy) and how they never really got closure, but then you went and made this wonderful thing that gave me everything I wanted. I'm not sure there are really words to articulate how profound and beautiful this was. Thank you.

Gah, you weren't kidding about the angst; I've been crying my eyes out these last two chapters.
Great and beautiful story, though. Truly beautiful and heartbreaking.

This fic is beautiful. I'm sad to don't understand all the subtility of you're word,english is not my language... Thanks to give Amelia one moment with Castiel. Thanks to give at Jimmy more substance. A past. A dream... And thanks to give a Castiel the chance to "understand".

*is in shock* Oh my goodness, I am crying here. I can't even word my sheer love for this story. I know this is going to sound strange, but I love how your title is completely pertinent to this story. This sounds bad, but I've gotten used to irrelevant and bland story titles that sound like they've come from those fifty-cent romance novels (I am also guilty of this). Your title was not only unique, but led into this romantic imagery of sheer freedom. I would never have imagined Jimmy as a mountain climber, but you had me enthralled with the idea. I can't describe this well, but when you described Castiel's memory of a happy Jimmy, there was an explosion of feeling, as if everything dark had tumbled down those Everest rocks and revealed something brighter, something for both Cas and Amelia to believe in (cheesy, I know). Ugh, I really, really loved this. You have a talent for both subtlety and the details. It takes talent to turn something potentially mundane (such as the neatness of Cas' appearance as he's leaving) and attach it to something meaningful and intimate.
Another favorite scene was the "clean-up" scene (sorry for vulgarizing such a beautiful scene with that label!). It was ritualistic, full of tenderness and the sense of loss. That you made this into the their farewell was more touching than any spoken "goodbyes" could have done.

that was an amazing story. You captured and portrayed the characters amazingly well. The confusion, anger, betrayal hurt and then forgiveness or acceptance.
amazing story. thank you for sharing.

Oh dear, this story. You actually made tears come to my eyes and my heart clench. This just knocked the wind out of me. Beautiful. You have a real gift- thank you for writing this.

Now this is what fan fiction is supposed to exist for, THIS is a thing of beauty. I cried through all three chapters. The potency of Amelia's conflicting emotions seems to physically vibrate off the page.
Like someone else mentioned, there wasn't a lot of closure or backstory about the Novaks in the Jimmy episode - Amelia and Claire came across as very two-dimensional, filler characters. This solved it. I'll never be able to watch an episode of Spn again and see Castiel without thinking of Jimmy and Mount Everest.
You truly have a gift, this was an amazing read.

so beautiful. i'm glad to find this fic, like an offering of closure which wasn't in the series.
| Darkcrows001 chapter 1 . 7/14/2010
This is beautiful and heartbreaking. It's the first time that I read a fic around Jimmy and Amelia and the only reason that I wen't here it was because someone recoment it, but I'm so glad I did )
