What a perfect scene between the brothers.
I could picture Dean's expression as he looked at his brother lying on the bed, flashing back to "AHBL" and Sam's death.
You did an excellent job capturing the brothers voices and giving us some brother moments. So nice to see Dean and Sam communicating again.
Dean sharing childhood memories with Sam was perfect.
I enjoyed reading your story, thanks for sharing it with us.

I do so love brotherly interaction and coming from your pen just made it extra delicious!
So many little moments and great details. Starting with the similarities between how Sam's physical condition was after being touched by an angel and healed by a demon.
Loved Dean's inner musings about Sam's shirts and the different feelings or memories each evoked.
Dean sharing a childhood memory with Sam and Sam's easy acceptance of it rather than a feeling of loss or having been left out shows so much the true growth of their relationship. It's not big things - those pieces were always great. The willingness to die for for the other, looking out for the other, etc is what makes them brothers. This new ability to leave things behind when necessary, honesty and no secrets, these things are the stronger building blocks of their relationship. Perfectly demonstrated in your fic!
And I really like how you don't forget that Uriel beat the crap out of Dean and his aches and pains make it into this story without detracting from the larger story you are telling.
Thanks for the excellent bro-mo, Sculls! I, for one, think it was perfect.

Sam does own some intesting long sleeved shirts. Great story, wish they would have included something like this on the show.

I liked this and I share your opinion of some of Sam's clothing. Frankly, the one area where the show has some continuity issues is in reusing clothing that was damaged beyond repair in previous eps. At least they're always careful not to damage Dean/John's leather coat.

Yay, awesome story!
Very very sweet. I've always wanted to read a story where Sam and Dean were back in time but it's super rare.
I have a new fondness for banana shirts.

Awesome story! Great treat for me on my birthday :-). I was super excited when I saw the email that *you* had posted a new story. I always love your work! No exception this time. Great missing scene.
Thanks so so much! :-)

Fantastic story, I have to say I totally love the fact that Dean finally shared some of his childhood with Sammy about their mom. I can just imagine how much that would have made Sam's day!

Terrific story. I loved the description of Sams shirts, and I guess you are right finding shirts that would fit him at second-hand or good-will would be really tough, so he would wind up with really odd clothes.
I really liked the line about Dean not having any strong feelings about Sams clothes, that sounds exactly like Dean.
Its nice that Dean finally shared some of his memories of Mary with Sam. I can understand why he wouldn't before, besides the pain involved, Dean didn't have much that was his, that he didn't have to share, but his memories were his alone.

great job with this one. I really enjoyed the bromance without it being too soppy. You always capture the characters so well - especially when Dean's outwardly snarking but inwardly panicking. I liked the little insights into Sam's shirts too. They really do dress him in some random colours! I mean... are the shirts REALLY necessary anyway? Clothes are overrated! And an Impala cake! Gotta love that :) Nice touch with creating mom memories! As always, you make the boys feel real when you write them.

That was just so amazing and I ask one simple, question...
Why the hell can't we see something like this on the show?
Super good writing!
I bow to you!

That was great! My husband calls some of the shirts the character Sam wears blouses ... until I pointed out that he had one just like one he wore in season one from Old Navy. It's a guy shirt but it has this ... sort of crinkle in the soft tee shirt material right where the buttons are that sort of make it a little like a blouse. Anyway, I enjoyed the story and the brotherly moments very much. Jared Padalecki wore a shirt at the
Vancouver convention for photo ops that is very much like the one he wears in the show. It was a long sleeve checked one. My son and I got to get a pic with JA and JP and it was so much fun! We got a really fun shot of them 'strangling' us. People at the convention really talked about the shirts so the story was really interesting. Thanks as always!

One of my least favourite Sam shirts bites the dust - ha! Nice one! You captured both boys voices beautifully, and this was a really interesting and convincing missing scene before poor old Cas arrives back.

I thought you did a great job with the brothers having a serious discussion about the events from the episode and the natural topic of their past and especially Dean's memories of family life before the fire and YED.
Very nice tag!
