Would not put it past Michael to send Sam home beaten and bloody an unconscious. Geez. But a good conversation here. It was nice that they got some good memories out in the open there.

I know that you wrote this a long time ago, but I just discovered your work, and I can't believe that it has taken me this long. You are a fantastic writer, and you add to the boys' story in so many great ways. I loved this piece. It was a good blend of angst and brotherly bonding, and I really liked the glimpse into the Winchester family's past before the demon attack. Amazing job!

At this point I guess it's obvious I'm rampaging through your stories, gobbling them up as though they were Pringles... It's because they are so darn good, and this one was particularly so. I was dying for more info about what transpired post-Michael in this episode, and you delivered it with mega-angst and shirt humor. Bravo!

Great story! I always noticed that pink shirt and wondered why it didn't button down all the way. Also figured that Dean would have something to say about that.

Just awesome! Loved your theory on how Sam came by some of his more 'colourful' to put it nicely, shirts, it would make total sense he bought them at a thrift shop and with his size didn't have as much choice as Dean! Loved the brotherly concern and Dean sharing memories of Mary, I always thought Dean and John should have shared more about her with Sam but know how painful it was for both of them. And loved the idea of an Impala birthday cake with black frosting that coloured Dean's tongue for days and could so imagine him poking his tongue out at people to show them - adorable!

Great story. I loved the why Dean open up to Sam about there Mom. And your right some of there shit are colorful.

Oh, that was just plain FUN! So much warmth and caring and sharing. (And it was nice to get a hint at just what it had done to Dean seeing Sam die in front of him...again.) And the stuff with the shirts was awesome. One of my friends has been doing "Sammy shirt watch" for years now...she's gonna LOVE this story, LOL!

This was such a sweet story! I'm gonna share it on Facebook. :D I loved how you looked at their clothing that represented so much of their lives without dwelling on it-I especially loved the khaki that sharply reminded Dean of his little trip through Not-so-Wonder-Land. :( Such a good point! The conversation between them was scrumptious! I wish they could take more time to do that in the series, but time is so short on TV! You made this moment so personal, so private between them I felt like that proverbial fly on the wall, privileged to have been there.
Memories of family before Mary's death were cool, but sweeter because Dean shared them with his brother. And then, wow, Michael used that one last memory of John to torture Dean-nicely done!

I have to agree with the middle aged lasy about the shirt. Sammy's so hot I don't even remember his shirt in that episode. I'm guessing by your story it was yellow? When I watch my boys it's rare that I notice their clothes! Anyway you did a really fantastic job. Anna...GGGRRRRRRRRR I hated her after this episode!

I thought the 'pink' shirt looked totally gay and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Sam wearing it. :P I don't remember the 'banana' shirt, so I'll have to pay attention when I watch that ep again. It makes logical sense they would pick up odds and ends at thrift stores, but I never entertained the idea, so great job of coming up with that explanation for some of the 'interesting' shirts.
I liked that you had Dean make a comment about John looking like he wanted to deck Sam for saying their Mom was beautiful because, yeah, where was Sam's brain-to-mouth filter? LOL I also loved hearing Dean share some of his Mom memories with Sam. It was sweet.

Another great one. Your stories add so much to the canon we know, and it all makes perfect sense. I loved how you mixed things we know with things you imagined when Dean told Sam about his childhood. The way you had the dirty clothes cue a memory run for Dean was a stroke of genius. The way the boys were teasing each other was spot on, and I always love to see an extension on any whump that may have happened in an episode. You rock, girl, and I'm a fan.

This made me laugh aloud and I again enjoyed your text very much. I seem to keep repeating the same things, but I have to say again that you've caught the boys very well. Dean's protective attitude is just in its place in this. And the discussion between the brothers, all the little jokes and everything, just great.
The shirts of Sam, oh, I've noticed them too. You really made me laugh with those flashbacks (the sales clerk)! And the amulet-thing, aww (and I also felt bad in there because I watched yesterday "Dark Side of the Moon"), and Sam keeping Dean's clothes...
And I liked the part where Dean told about his childhood with his mom, those memories were alive and I can see the little Dean running to catch a ball... Cute.
Great work, I liked this. Thank you again.

At last! I'm finally catching up on some fics that I set aside and this was such a gem of a read! I really enjoyed this episode and you highlighted many of the moments that stood out for me, there was something so powerful in seeing all four Winchesters together and fighting for each other.
The close examination of Sam's vast array of weird and wonderful shirts made me smile! And I really liked how each one brought reminders to Dean about the past and the ever changing state of his relationship with his brother. It was a neat way of showing how much they've been through.
Great insight with the the demon healing verses Angel healing. I love it when authors pick up on things that I haven't thought about before because you're right, it really does fit canon that Sam wouldn't be completely healed and healthy that fast especially considering time travel was also involved!
Sam's face when he saw his mother for the first time was such a touching moment and I really liked how you used this to spark him into asking Dean questions about her. The moments you chose were everyday life memories and I guess that's what makes Dean treasure them. The fact that they represent a simpler and innocent time in his life. Dean swearing when he was kid reminded my of the story my Mum loves to tell about how when I was little she came back from work and asked me how my day was and I said “Daddy lost the blo*dy can-opener!”
But I guess what I enjoyed the most was the tone of this fic. You managed to keep it in canon, true to the boys and their struggles with the apocalypse and vessels but with a hopeful and positive outlook. Plus it was so nice to just see them joking around and talking about their childhood.
This was such a treat to read and I'm just sad that it's over! Take care and I hope you're still writing! Abbi
