Well,shit. This has to be the best fanfic I've ever read.
The characters are perfect: I can see this happening in the series word for word.
Masuka would really be speechless, Doakes would be respectful, Rita would be heartbroken, hesitant, but ultimately strong in making him explain to the kids. Astor would be hostile and hard headed, Cody would be blindly accepted and thus eroded, Laguerta would get "bad cop" out of the way and then thank Dexter for turning himself in, and grant his final request to her, Angel would prize their friendship and accept him. Deb would avoid coping by losing herself in a drunken haze,and shoot Dex when he came to say goodbye.
With the mask lifted, he would be able to give the humans in his life closure, and say goodbye, rather than leave them angry, confused, grieving after he smashes into a storm. Also, Rita would live, maybe find a good man for the first time in her life, or just give up and waste away. Trinity would escape and continue killing, Travis would complete his tableus, and maybe actually commit suicide. Zach would keep killing and eventually get caught. Vogel may have died anyway. LaGuerta and Doakes may get back together. Matthews would't get his full pension. LaGuerta would actually live. And so,so many killers would be free and would keep piling on the bodies.
This may actually be the best-written possible ending to Dexter.
What those around him would have most difficulty coping with is that he is a sociopath and a serial killer, but he loves Deb, cares for Rita, Astor and Cody, his collegues, and he cannot be as bad as his victims,as he (in the series, where he did not turn himself in) saved Trinity's intended victim rather than pursue his next kill.
Now that is a surprise, motherfucker.

This is so incredibly sad.
Wonderfully written. Brilliantly even. Probably the best Dexter-fan-fic I have read. No, certainly the best.
But I still hate it. Dexter is dead. I hate it.

Definitely one way it could have ended. I'm not sure Deb would've necessarily killed him but it certainly brought in some poetic justice. Thank you for posting.

I really liked your story :-)
| HolyShit chapter 9 . 3/8/2015
That was fucking depressing. Good job!
| TigerInTheMoonlight chapter 9 . 2/16/2015
I managed to hold it together until the Angel chapter, and now I'm just covered in tears. Brilliant story!
| Shapes chapter 9 . 2/15/2015
I think you just shitted all over my heart with that end...Deb is going to take it even harder than ever now. Great fic, thank you!

Jesus my heart was pounding in my chest. Such a good chapter, can't wait to read more.
| Rumo123 chapter 9 . 10/6/2014
A very fitting end I think
| iharasu chapter 9 . 5/4/2014
Somehow, that hit the spot.
| moosejuice5 chapter 9 . 3/28/2014
liked it, only complaint would be that i would of liked a longer chapter for the kids
| Magus1108 chapter 9 . 1/19/2014
Damn, this was...something. Really depressing read, especially at the end here, but that's not too surprising, all things considered.

I loved all of these chapters. The ending was shocking and a well-written conclusion, but I wish Deb and Dexter had a chance to talk a little bit more. Overall, this entire story was beautiful. Kudos.
