Reviews for Choices a 5x18 missing scene
ImpalaLove chapter 1 . 10/29/2016
Oh I loved this. I'm going through some of your stories and I'm so glad that I've found them because each is packed with an incredible amount of emotion and gorgeous wording. I especially loved this line:

"If it were about anyone else, that thought really would be absurd. Except it’s Dean. And maybe he really is tied into the planet itself in some cosmically binding way."

Everything about this story was great, from the comparison of the caged tiger to the way Sam comes to the realization that he has to make a different choice. Well done on all fronts.

I loved how in the end, Dean would not let Sammy down.

I thought this was just a lovely piece. Such a nice look at Sam in the midst of Dean's breakdown. And I loved these lines:

"He cannot ask for his brother's trust any longer.

He can only give it."

Guh. Perfect.

Sandy, this is gorgeous… we know patching up Dean is something Sam has done time and time again but of course this is so much more because it’s not just his brother’s body that is broken – it’s his spirit and his psyche, and no amount of butterfly stitches and bandages are going to fix that.

I really like your insight into Sam – I loved him in the episode, and I haven’t for such a long time. But he seems to have really grown since SI and especially after the events of DSOTM. I love his mind flipping back to happier memories, even though they lost that childhood innocence when they were young, and I especially love that little throw-in to DSOTM, with Sam wondering why he couldn’t have seen that memory…

'Sam will not make the wrong choice again.'

Amen to this! ;-)

Nice tag. I like Sam's thought process in this. I like how he compares to how Dean does have a need for normalcy and how Sam has lost that need... just doesn't want to turn into the Devil.

And Sam is not Lucifer and Dean is not Michael.

I hope it stays that way...

Good job.

Epic! It fits perfectly with what was I think the best episode in a long time. Sam's intellect combined with his sappiness show through in your writing of his thoughts. Great read! :)

I enjoyed reading your missing scene to episode 18.

Loved all of Sam's thoughts and memories of Dean.

Even with the time line off about Adam, works well for the story.

Loved Sam's faith in his big brother and this line, 'Dean is not Michael. And Sam is not Lucifer.'

Thanks for sharing your story with us.

And Sam chooses that moment to grow the fuck up.

Bought damn fucking time too!

What a wonderful little fic, sandymg. I love the straight, almost monologue, tone you kept throughout the story. The small insights given through Sam's musings were equally telling and adorable. I think you kept true to the emotions Sam must have been feeling during this episode. There were some really great moments - and you handled Sam's fear of Lucifer without over doing it. It was restrained yet all the more emotional for it. Didn't you love how Sam composed himself in this episode? Ah, and you captured it! Thank you for this lovely interpretation!
