|Reviews for Drag Her From Heaven, Drag Him From Hell|
| BlackIceWitch chapter 5 . 12/29/2011
Okay, this review might a bit more controversial. It's purely how I felt as the reader.
At the beginning of the chapter, Dean is making love to Jo. It's gentle, intimate, the imagery is strong and the feeling one of being suspended in their own little world. When Castiel interrupts them, the mood is shattered by the humour of Dean falling out of bed and the subsequent conversation.
Not sure if this is what you were aiming for, but it felt too much for me as the reader. In addition, Castiel's warning is urgent but both Jo and Dean virtually ignore the seriousness of the situation by bantering which I found to be difficult as it was unclear if the situation really was urgent, or not. One character insisting that is, but the other two behaving as if it wasn't, if you see what I mean.
If this is the intention, then that's fine; but if not, then a re-read of the chapter would probably help. The tensions that have built up beautifully with the beginning of the scene are lost by the end.
My usual disclamer here: just my opinion ;)

"Okay, so he wouldn't have done either of those things. But he'd have made damn sure she made it out of Carthage alive.
"We don't have much time," his voice is rushed, almost breathless. "We must go now."
Dean sets his beer on the edge of the table and eyes the angel suspiciously. "Go where exactly?"
"I thought you wanted Joanna back?" he inquires, confusion crossing his features."
Might want to put in a line here that Castiel has returned. Took a couple of read throughs to realise that Dean wasn't talking to himself?

Gorgeous story and beautifully written. The dialogue was very believable for the characters, and their voices sounded in my head as I was reading.
One point ... and it's really a matter of preference, so don't take it the wrong way please. I found myself skipping over the love scenes as there were a lot and they didn't seem to add anything new. Fan fiction differs enormously, I know, and I'm not yet used to reading a lot of it, so it may be it that. But thought I should raise it anyhow. Feel free to kick if you don't like the comment :)
Otherwise, looking forward to reading your other work, and thanks for providing *some* great adult reading that doesn't involve slash or wincest!

oh you ARE evil...I really want to know what she says! I am so excited!

Nice move, bringing God in...you wrote it beautifully. I could see Chuck and hear his voice as the two talked.

ACK! Wait! What! How could you stop there! lol, *tries to be patient for sequel*
aww, thankies for the shoutout at the beginning :)
Loved the chapter (I know I say that a lot, but it's always true).

Who is the person speaking in first person? I kinda figured out who the guy with the red sucker is :)
| FallenAngel218 chapter 9 . 12/22/2011
It was interesting to throw Jo into the mix at the end of Wicked. Good chapter!
Oh, and I like that your chapters are named after songs :)

uh-oh. It's never good when Cas gets separated, especially when his powers are broken.
| FallenAngel218 chapter 5 . 12/22/2011
Cas is such a buzzkill...nice chapter! Can't wait to see Sam's reaction to Jo.. after the blowout he and Dean had.
| FallenAngel218 chapter 3 . 12/22/2011
Hmmm...wonder what Cas is up to...I'm intrigued. And I love Dean's raw emotions, especially his anger.

Yes, yes, indeed you are totally evil to leave us hanging like that! :)
Anyway, I think it was so lovely how he wakes here with a kiss. Also, love how this chain of events ended up making Dean the believer and he's got to convince Jo that everything is as it should be. Fantastic that even though things are really chaotic right now and she's being asked to deal with a lot of stuff all at once, she knows she loves him. Period. End of story. Her surety there makes the rest of her doubts something we can deal with.
Wonderful wonderful wonderful story you've got here, sweets! Just as epic as I knew it would be when we first hashed it out! You've really done the whole thing justice and you should be exceptionally proud of what you've accomplished. I'm honored to have been a part of the journey. *hugs*

*sigh* This one was another great one! I loved Chuck's appearance here to explain what the heck is going on. Getting Dean to believe that it's over...that he's done...that they can be happy...that they're in a world where they have been happy...wonderful!
Favorite line: "In this case, the prayers of a man from Kansas searching for forgiveness and relief were answered by a young woman from Nebraska who wanted nothing more than to love him."
Really really well done here!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! HOW COULD YOU DO THAT! It's one of the worst feelings in the world when you go to click the "Next" button, BUT IT'S NOT THERE.
Also, YOU SHIP SAM/SARAH TOO? COULD YOU BE ANY MORE AWESOME? Have you thought of writing a Sam/Sarah story? I think if you did, it would be amazing (like all of your stories).
Anyways, I loved this chapter & I can't wait for the next one!

You are indeed evil! What a great ending though, and I am so glad there will be a sequel. I have loved every minute of this fic journey, and how you put your own stamp on the Dean/Jo relationship.
Definitely looking forwards to reading more from you, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and the happiest, Dean/Jo filled New Year.
