"please don't hit me," cuts my heart the most. Such a cry of Disperate Courage from Sam.

All I can say about this is that it's only everything I hoped and dreamed for when watching this season. I always think the boys need more hugs, but at this point it was especially needed.

I am speechless. Oh my gosh, this was terribly heartbreaking and emotional, but utterly gorgeous at the same time. I think you handled the situation of Dean breaking down very well, all while keeping him 'Dean'. I've actually read this a few times before and will definitely be a story I come back to read again :)
Thanks for writing!

This is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! I can't even put into words how magnificent this story is. Wow, wouldn't it have been something if we actually did get to see Dean break? Amazing and wonderful scene that will probably never make its way onto the show. Bravo! A favourite for sure! Thanks so much :)

I agree totally! I really wished that the connection between the two brothers wouldn't be so strained. I have high hopes for season 9 because season 8 was still a bit of that distance.
Now to review this story, I must say that it made me cry! Well written and emotional. I loved this one! Keep it up!

It occurred to me after reading all the flashbacks that Dean was having how much of a emotional roller coaster ride Supernatural has been to the fans. In saying that, this is probably the most heartfelt story I have ever read. The utter despair and longing for death made me just start sobbing about fictional characters that have become such a big part of our lives. My most heartfelt compliment to your talent for attention to detail. Anyone who read this story must have been touched to their very core because out of all our despair in real life sometimes, we find the way to pick ourselves up and drive on. I've read a lot of stories in the year or so that I discovered the fan fiction website and nothing else comes close to the emotions you churn up in this story. Thank you so much for this.

Intense stuff, very emotive and extremely well written.
| SC chapter 1 . 2/26/2013
That was well done. Both the boys need some kind of cathartic release before they actually go insane; especially Dean. I think his emptiness is being addressed more this season but so far the writers haven't really dealt with it. Poor guys. They really need to hug each other more.

OMG...sitting here bawling my eyes out now. That was beautiful!
| bluecharlotte chapter 1 . 1/5/2013
This is just godamn incredible all around. Literally had me in tears. I mean, it's one thing to have a hurt/comfort fic diving into all of their deepest issues (especially Dean's ever-present and never-mentioned death wish), but your characterizations are so fucking perfect. Oh my god. I am dead. I swear. Thank you for writing this beautiful thing. :)

Thank you thank you THANK YOU so much for writing this! FINALLY, things can get back to some sembelance of normal for them, and all those wounds can start to heal! I just hate it when TV show writers drag stuff like this out for ages, it makes the show a bloody chore to watch, and gets really depressing! So thank you for doing this! :) You have a genuine talent as a writer, wish I could write like you! Please keep up the great work! :)

This was awesome!
| Guest chapter 1 . 8/3/2012
Absolutely loved it! This filled all my needs for a "complete Dean breakdown" fic and the way Sam brings it on by him just about blew me away emotionally!
Just about one of the best I have ever read!

"Sam, I want to hope. I wish I could see something good. But there's no light at the end of the tunnel for us anymore, man. Not in this world. Not for me," Dean said, nearly reaching a sobbing point.
-I've never read a fic that put it as bluntly and 'out there' as that. Really. S7 has brought us all to this point. Cut off every possible avenue for happiness for the boys - Dean especially - save for each other and the occasional fulfillment of saving people and hunting things, both of which have proven to be a double-edged sword. We can't hope anymore that Dean will get a chance to have the family he always wanted, because of what happened with Lisa and Ben. And the brothers have gone through such radical changes that they've become both hardened and distant. Almost deadened really, from all the torture they've suffered. And with hunts like the one they had in "Slice Girls" - you have to wonder how much more their spirits can withstand.
"Sammy-" His voice broke, "I just want to die," he cried, sounding absolutely lost. His chest heaved and Dean was actually sobbing, now, completely shaking, wracked with guilt and grief against Sam's frame. Dean's grip was tight around his brother, but Sam was essentially holding them up. Dean had lost strength in everything except his grip on Sam.
Sam lowered Dean down to the ground with him and held tight as Dean's shattered memories tore through him. Intertwined in the most intense bear hug either of them had ever had, Sam felt his brother's sobs and only held him tighter.
"Dean. Dean I'm gonna need you," Sam spoke softly, honestly, his chin resting against his big brother's shoulder, angled towards Dean's head. Dean kept his hold on Sam. "Dean, don't let go of this. Don't let go of this – I'm still your little brother. I still need you, okay?" Sam's voice cracked in the midst of his statement, shaky at his last word.
- I actually started to cry at this part. Because of its raw honesty, and because of Sam's desperation.
- I really liked how Sam acknowledged that both he and Bobby have said unhelpful things to Dean in response to his depression. And I liked how Sam was SAM here. Direct. Blunt. Pushy. (All three things that have frustrated me about the way he talks to Dean, but he wouldn't be Sam without them). Equal parts intimidated and irritated by his brother, but showing both bravery and restraint.
- My only beef is the very end, where the boys go from having an exhaustingly emotional, very rare (because of its honesty) moment, to joking and being essentially fine. I just don't think that was realistic in light of the revelations of the dialogue and seriousness of the rest of the story. I guess it's a 'tone' thing. I want to see Dean 'better', but I don't think it's realistic that he, after so much suffering, could return to how he was in S1-3, and I don't think that any kind of healing, if possible, would happen so quickly after one moment, no matter how cathartic. Perhaps if there had been more build up and just...more, it would have worked better.
