I agree. After the last thing Dean said to Sam, after seeing him dead, and seeing all of the torture Sam went through, I think your take on Dean's actions is justified. It would have been out of character for him not to do this. I distinctly recall him threatening to rip someone's lungs out for much less done to Sammy. I also agree with the need for him to leave Bobby out of it. Hopefully you didn't get too many complaints from other readers.

God the number of times I've had to chuck a chapter because I wanted Dean to make a logical decision! Boy is more irrational than my mother sometimes!
Awesome. Well done.

I think Dean would totally lose it after finding Sam dead in the warehouse, then seeing what really happened. I think his protective 'big brother' instincts would be crying for revenge, and his guilt that he drove Sam away and refused to listen to him when he pleaded to get back together, those feelings would drive him to do this. Out of character for Dean? Usually, but then, Sam dying again would be enough to force Dean out of the normal, I think.

So now Dean has found Sam's room, and realized how little Sam kept with him. How much he disassociated himself from hunting. It looks like Dean is realizing just how much of a b**tard Tim is, and how much he planned taking Sam. I think Dean is seeing how much it hurt Sam to be separated from Dean. It's sad that two weapons are all that are left of Sam. :(

That was so hard for Dean to watch! He blames himself for not coming to rescue Sam, but he blames Tim for his death, which he should. Tim was unnecessarily rough with Sam, and he took enjoyment in the hurting. What made him feel that he was any better than Sam, that he was in the right to hurt, then kill Sam? I guess it was a self-righteous attitude.

Oh that sucks! Dean told Sam they were better off apart, that they should just pick a hemisphere and stay there, then he gets sent to the future and decides he was wrong and he wants to be with Sam again, then finds out he's too late. :( Whoever tortured, then killed Sam had better watch out, cause Dean is going to find them and make them pay!

I have just noticed another 2 chapters updated onto this story, I only had up to Absolution Pt 1. But I see you haven't added to it for over a year. Have you stopped updating it, I really liked it when Dean went all psycho killer on the hunters that killed Sammy. Things have gotten more complicated now, with the two of them having nightmares and Sam thinking Dean hates him, but it would be great to read more. Thanks

totally love this story! i think the characters in this are totally intune with the T.V version. I could see Dean reacting this way if this happened to Sam (What sibling wouldn't? lol) and i like the fact that you never allowed Dean to lose his anger over what Sam did (even thou i've never liked that Dean blamed Sam for it all, but i've always seen Sam's POV on everything more clearly then Dean's lol) Anyway, just wanted 2 say what a great job u did on this story. Thanks for writing it :D xxxx

Awesome story. And I believe Dean would kill anyone human, demon, or anything else that would come after Sam and kill them.

OK, you know all those scenes with the beatings and fighting had me wanting to hide under the bed. I tell you this, you can make your reader squirm!
This was completely gripping - even if it was harrowing in parts - it really was a proverbial "page turner".
You kept the boys totally in character as well. I love your interactions between them and how you managed to stay true to their on screen characters even as the story got highly dramatic. Also, the dramatic nature of the story really did lend itself to some great scenes laced with brotherly angst. Great job on that.
I'm really looking forwarding to reading more from you.

I'm kinda literally speechless.
This is one of the best multichapters I have read in a long time.
No, seriously, you should have your story filmed or something!
And by the way, I was bored so I calculated it, and if 4 months on Earth mean 40 years in Hell, then 13 hours mean 2 months and 5 days.

Glad you were able to finish this! Very cool concept in your little AU world. Liked the deleted scene as well!
