"It was Sam's presence that kept Dean sane in the life they led. His little brother was his stone; the one who kept him grounded when the insanity of the hunt threatened to push him over the edge."
"Dean's big brother radar was going off and he knew there was one last thing Sam needed from him before he went off into the real world. "It's okay, Sammy. I get it. You deserve to be happy and I want this for you. Just promise me you'll be careful."
This story was PERFECT. And I've read so many renditions of when Sam left for Stanford, long and descriptive, short and simple, but I really liked this one. I'm still conflicted about it because I feel like it wasn't fair to Dean, but it was Sam's life and his future, and Dean would want him to be happy. SHIT.

"You know what happens when you get in trouble for fighting at school, Dad? You get expelled. Sammy's a smart kid and he actually enjoys school. I swear it's the only time he's happy these days. But me? I know where my future lies and I don't need a diploma for it. So if some asshole wants a fight, it's gonna be with me. End of story."
"When I saw you hit the ground and you didn't get up… I thought for sure you were just gonna take it and that kid wouldn't've walked away. I wasn't gonna let that happen."
Oh, Dean. _ This is written so well!

It took twenty-two years for him to realize that by placing that bundle of blankets into Dean's small arms the night Mary died, he had practically signed Dean's death sentence".
"But Dean, that boy would gladly watch the world burn so long as Sammy was by his side and all three Winchesters knew it."
"John knew deep down that Dean would always be his perfect little soldier, but had he realized then that Sam was going to slip through his fingers, he would have held on a bit tighter."
I really love all these quotes, especially the scene where John discusses how their dependency with each other was a good thing but also ruined them.

That was sooo wonderful. Those are the scenes that I like to see inbetween the Winchesters. Thnks for writing!

I really enjoyed this story! Loved each description of Dean being there for Sam. Now, after reading the last chapter, there are tears running down my face! This is how I would like to imagine things going that night between Sam and Dean.

This is just beautiful and beautifully written, and Dean is so in character in hurts. And so is Sammy, but really, this about Dean, and I just love how you captured his non-existent self-worth in this chapter. I love it. So much. Yeah, it was beautiful.

This chapter is unbelievably well written. The emotion and pain Dean goes through is literally dripping of the page. Well done on another fantastic story.
