Wonderful, heartbreaking take on that nursery rhyme, brilliant!

Words that bludgeoned his spirit into docile submission;-:-( This made me want to cry.

Yeah, that goodbye when Sammy actually did leave for Stanford is probably still one of the worst days of Dean Winchester's life.
Foreverwolf chapter 1 . 10/27/2010
Oh yes! He needs a hug after this complete exposure of his soul! This was very powerful, and very believable as something that is likely to be going inside Dean's head.

Very creative use of the WOW! Nicely done!

Awww. *sniff* My poor boy! I definitely want to give him a hug, especially after this past episode!

Very nicely done, tho. :)

Hey Dizzo, seems like there has been a strong psychic connection between some of us last week - about mental wounds :-) Loved your version of the constant wounds loved ones inflicted on Dean, and really: each one I had to watch did hurt me too - and do I have to speak about the sick feeling I got from watching the last episode, with Sam standing in the alley smiling about Dean being turned? Certainly not...

Lovely drabble - and so true! We have seen it so often, how the words used by his loved ones cut deeper than any of the physical hurts for Dean - my drabble this week was along these lines too, so was one of Edina's - great minds thinking alike methinks!

Oh, wow, talk about hitting me over the head with angst. Poor Dean, I do want to give him a nice, long hug after that.

*grabs Dean and hugs him - hard - twice* You're the biggest, baddest mo-fo hunter that ever lived, Dean Winchester, and don't you let anybody tell you different, ya hear?

This was lovely.
Edina Clouds chapter 1 . 10/24/2010
"Dean would gladly take the sticks and stones any day" - oh that's so, so sad! And says it all!

great job sweetie!

Oh. My. Gods. You just stuck a shiv in my heart. Poor Dean - gruff, strong, always-okay Dean with his broken heart and shattered soul. Just want to hold him tight and soothe his hurts. Very insightful, powerful piece. Nice work.

OH DEAN! *holds him*

I empathize with this fic on some deep, raw level. Poor guy... The part that killed was that they were spoken by those he loves more than anything else in the world - the people he'd wreck the Impala and die for.
