I loved the realisation that Dean’s inability to handle Sam’s powers isn’t Sam’s problem, it’s Dean’s. I still think that if Dean had even attempted to see where Sam was coming from things could have been a lot different. It’s like we share a brain – you’ve just made Dean realise everything I’ve wanted him to for years now, which was satisfying. So thanks for that.

AWSAM chapter...*sniff sniff* but but...will Sam never talk again? OMG...his deep-husky-sexy-southern voice... :'(( That's a lil unnerving but this story was awesome. You sure you aren't writing any sequel of this one? I want to hear my baby! Poor Sam; helluva time to keep his promise... Sam's always been good, a boy with golden heart; but no one cared to see that. *sigh* Love it, waiting to read your next stories.

Oh sweetie, this chapter was so angsty and I absolutely adored it!
I found myself in severe withdrawal of your SPN fics the last few months and this just made me realize how much I missed them!
Great fic hun.
PS I dropped mostly off the grid except for a few small ficlets for the last few months, and yep I do post on my lj... I was going to write this last week but work took over then I go sick... and today was my 21st so I let myself have a day to myself... But hey I have a couple weeks before I start up college again- so give me a prompt or something to work with and I'll see what I can do. :)
Again great fic hun!

Loved the story! Great idea and execution. I really enjoyed reading it. I love a sad Sam sometimes :-) But he has such a great smile it is good to see him smile. Ok, well I think that has only happened on the show 4 or 5 times :-(
Thanks so much for sharing. Now I want to go back and watch Metamorphosis again :-)

Great second and final chapter. Loved the twist that Dean had a mini-possession which explained Sam's fearful reaction to him perfectly. And just adored the hug, the readers needed this as much as the boys did!
A really great read, thanks.

LOL, yeah I know what you mean. They had such a hard time evening up the story lines Season 4 and Season 5. I felt it was extremely Dean heavy, and Season 6 kinda started off the same, but at least there was a reason for that.
Anyway, it's still a fledgling story, but if you want an AU story for Season 5 that actually looks like it's on the road to following up on the "Sammy's suffering from depression" story, check out my bud JakeFL. The chapters actually read like episodes. They're awesome - use the search and check it out!

Oh, I'm certain that if Dean had done some soul-searching like this, Sam wouldn't have gone off the tracks so badly (or away on his own track, anyway). Of course, then there wouldn't have been a season 5 or 6... but still. And I agree, I wish the show would spend more time exploring Sam's angst! Anyway, I loved your take on it - I totally wasn't expecting the mini-possession thing of Dean's! I liked how that was what was keeping him and Sam apart, rather than Sam just not wanting to be with Dean (or Sam being brain-damaged). And of course, I loved the hug. I'm such a sucker for a hug!

I loved this story! Poor broken Sam, but Dean is always there for him. And yes, I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see more of what Sam was going through right from the time Dean's deal came due until after Lucifer was set free. I'm hoping that Sam's current situation isn't glossed over this time around.

I haven't read any Kafka, but I agree that the show seemed to avoid going into Sam's emotional issues in any great depth with season 4.
A shame, really. Would have been interesting to explore, plus it might have garnered more sympathy for Sam from the fandom, instead of all the backstabbing, and the insults that were freely hurled about back then, and not just at the characters but at the actors too - it was an incredibly childish era and not a good memory for any of us. I particularly recall bouts of high blood pressure just from reading some anti-Sam/Jared and anti-Dean/Jensen comments alike at the time, and so I had to give up visiting certain websites for the sake of my temper.
Anyway, I really like the way Dean's thoughts are running in this fic; and loved the twist of him being possessed without him even realising it, coupled with Sam's powers coming into play whilst he's asleep.
And that brotherly hug at the end? Bring it on! Me wants more of the same! Awwwww...

Wow, so I have to get my thoughts together, as they are strewn all over the place right now. I'm really overwhelmed by this. This turned out to be such a surprising chapter. Dean's self reproach and Ruby just walking out in the beginning, the first didn't surprise me and I welcomed it, the second on the other hand came unexpected, yet was also welcome.
Sam slowly improving, yet mostly being asleep(or faking it?), when Dean was around until about a week later was very unusual. That's why I'm convinced he was either faking or taking med to make him sleep on purpose. And then the strange behavior when Dean touched him, it made me wonder, well at least until later. I liked how Dean thought about Ruby and that he liked this one better than the blonde one. So then Ruby tried to heal Sam (looks like she succeeded) and Sam almost sent her back to hell. Something that to me signals that his subconscious really doesn't want her around. And I really believe that he put up with her because he thought he could use his powers for good and later because he needed her blood to help him do what he needed to. I will never believe that his motives were evil or selfish, although like every addict he would have thrived on the feeling of power the blood gave him. I think he honestly wanted to do something good, especially he because he felt he was such a freak.
Anyway, it was very clear that his behavior was off and I thought it was the depression and the unsuccessful attempt to end his life by demon that made him behave that way. Except the flinching away at Dean's touch was weird. I didn't even think to much about Dean's behavior. It was sorta strange that he would already be so worn down, when he didn't really start any physical caring for Sam yet. You really kept me in the dark here. So when Dean took the knife to cut Sam, it really took me by surprise. I thought why would he do that? He couldn't really believe that Sam was a demon? Yet the moment Sam's mind pushed him away and he started choking and something came up his throat and out of his nose and mouth, I knew what was up. Yet it really shocked me and at the same time it explained everything.
And the ending, Dean making his mind up to finally take care of Sam and taking responsibility for his part in Sam's change was great, because I love Dean as the awesome big brother. And the surprising hug he received from Sammy, when the younger brother realized it was only Dean now that was just so, well awe. No other word good enough here.
I just hope you will dig out some of your other stories not yet posted here. I really missed you. Loved this story and I'm glad you posted it. Hugs, Vonnie

Loved it; absolutely loved it, especially Dean's introspection towards the end. It would have served his character well to be possessed - or something similar - at some point in the show; something that would take his hubris down a peg or two. I had high hopes "Live Free or Twi Hard" was going to do that, but, sadly, it was not to be. Anyway, great job with this.

I agree! I loved that episode and I loved where you took this tag. That was the whole problem. Dean wouldn't listen. Thanks so much for this!
