Really amazing story. My favorites are the ones that I can close my eyes and see it as a episode, and this was one of those. Your a great writer, keep it up :)

Dear god this was so good. There was a lot of angst from Dean's side but it was well-balanced with him meeting John and Mary, figuring out what he was fighting for. And thank you for fixing the whole dark side of the moon issue because that episode made me so mad.

Great story and - as are all your stories - beautifully written as well. I loved every minute of reading it and it truly kept me on the edge of the seat. I also watched the teaser and trailer from loki and since I visited you lj page to check out the soundtrack/fanmix I also read your comment from Jun. 12th, 2013 at 9:45 AM, which led me to the article posted to Spoiler TV ("Supernatural - Season 9 - Speculation on Dean") and yes I fully agree with it in that Dean needs to overcome his childhood trauma and his low self esteem, but I also agree with you that we really don't need the other brother to go dark side or bad boy now.
Best wishes and thanks for another fantastic story - it totally made my Sunday.
Oh, and also thanks for your rambles, even though I'm not reading all of them, but if I do I find myself nearly always agreeing with what you're saying.
Please keep writing and sharing because I honestly need a steady influx of good SPN stories. :-)

Perfection. Excellent story, terror in spades, suspense, all that wonderful characterization you excel at, and I loved every moment of it. This is amongst your best pieces. Keep it up.

Terrific, riveting story. Very suspenseful. Especially liked Dean and Bobby and the way they related to each other.

This was most awesome. Have been away for a time - in the old con days I would say I was gafiating (getting away from it all) but I've also been faiating ( forced). Still - loved loved loved maintaining Dean'sPOV throughout; loved the equal opportunity whump; and loved the S5 angsty goodness of it all. Pacing check, dialogue check, great Bobby - this made me very happy. Especially the extra Dean whump naturally, since after all it is me. I hope MD loved it.

This is very exciting! My heart is pounding for Sam over here! Hurry Dean!

Wow! That was amazing. I'm a relative newcomer to the world of fan fic, but I've quickly learned what's good and what's REALLY good and what is amazing, and this is one of the amazing ones! It came highly recommended by a couple of different people and I see why. The scene with Dean and John and Mary had me in tears, as did the last scene with Sam and Dean talking. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff!

Liked the picture of Dean seeing notes. That is how I see music – in notes, most often. And when I watch a movie, quite a lot of the times I see the words, the direction. Nice of you to pull this out of your hat.
When I was about 13, I was in a car accident with my friends. We were hit on my side by a semi truck and part of the truck actually struck me. I didn’t realize it at the time, of course, but as the car was spinning, my thoughts and head was spinning and I remember feeling this desire to let go – let my mind rest and just as I felt that happening, this little voice jumped out and held on – as I got older and reflected on it, I realized it was my moment of panic that if I let myself fade away (I’m sure I was just going to pass out) that I might not wake back up. I like they way you put this with Dean. Your words worked well. Totally brought me back to that moment in time.
This scene with Sam holding Dean and Dean fighting against Sam as Bobby takes care of Dean’s leg reminds me a bit of ‘Boondock Saints’ when the trio has to each take a turn at cauterizing each other’s wounds.
Okay, now - Was Sam sick? Someone was sick. Reminds me of ‘the Outsiders’ when Ponyboy wakes up at his house and Darry is there, talking sweetly to him and Pony starts to wonder – wait… am I sick? And Darry - “Shut up now, will ya, honey?”
Really like the image of Dean knowing the monsters were still on the edge of his dream and that they would wait to attack when he turned his back.
I have a husband and three kids. One day one of my girls asked me which kid did I love the most. Before I could answer, my oldest replied, “She loves Dad the most. How do you think you and I got here?” It’s true. More than anything, I love my husband most. He is my partner, he is the person I need to keep my balance and when our balance is off, everything is…wrong. I have had friends in my life who have had marital problems that have progressed until they have divorced. I can always tell when things are going okay and when things are going poorly by how their talk about their own balance is. When things are good, their talk focuses on their spouse. When things are going south, their words are more ‘kid’ focused until their balance shifts and their number one person in their life is now their child. We all need that balance, though, with somebody. Or we’ll fall down.
You did a nice job with the easiness of something that happened and not happening. The pain that is in those words, the loss of control but the knowing that one day things will be better.
I remember my mom, when she was dying, told me that she was confident that Mr Blair and I would be okay, that we would make it because he needed me to push him to be better. That without me pushing him, he’d just be working some small job, dreaming of bigger things. I don’t know if that is true or not… but she thought it was.
Super Duper job, G! Loved it from start to end! Sorry it took so long for me to review, it has been awaiting you for about a month now. Cheers on a fantastic story! Thanks for the ride!

Wow!That was captivating and riveting .Sam fought hard to stay alive and Dean gave everything he had in him to save Sam's life. So an intense story, I was out of breath at the end. Terrific work Gaelic.
