This was all kinds of awesome and had me glued! You pulled me in like a fish on a hook! No surprise there, though. Just sayin'!
You wrote: She wanted to see Sam's eyes; wanted to know if they were hazel like John's, blue like hers, or startlingly green like his brother's.
I love how you wrote Mary...so worried about her boy...needing to see his eyes
You wrote: Mary smiled at the memory of how her sweet little four-year old had often dutifully watched Sammy while the baby had slept; had insisted on having a stool beside Sam's crib so he could fully see the baby at all times.
Guh...love that image of little Dean. I can see it! So clear.
You wrote: Dean glanced down at his chest, remembering how he had also cleaned the amulet and then had promptly put it back where it belonged – around his neck – and then had joined his parents as they had waited for news about his brother.
Dean taking back the amulet...dude! So want to see this on the show.
You wrote: Because John could tell that Dean was different; was truly his own man now and would not take orders quite as easily; would be more likely to challenge John and make his own decisions.
I really like how you show us what is going on in everyones minds as they are reunited and it makes totaly sense. John respecting Dean that way especially I liked.
You wrote: Mary sighed; hating herself for what she was about to ask but unable to resist. "Shouldn't he be awake by now?"
"Jesus, woman..." John groaned and shook his head.
Dean chuckled. "Sometimes it takes him a little while," he told his mom. "Sam's a big kid, but anesthesia knocks him on his ass."
That cracked me up totally...and Dean ever watchful of the monitors and of when Sam was about to wake. So sweet and caring...gave me warm fuzzy all over and literally took my breath away.
This would make a cool series the family hunting together...sniff...sniff...I smell a sequel.
Thank you much!

Awww, I can't believe it's over. *sniff sniff* Such a sweet, informative, detailed chapter. Love how you wrote Mary all nervous and agitated but acting like a typical mother. John, laid back yet ready at a moments notice if need be and realizing how the family dynamics will have to change from what he was used to. Dean the uber protective guardian of his little brother. Then of course, baby brother Sam waking up and not having a clue what was going on. Just a nice picture of a family there for each other. And what the Winchesters truly represent. Thank you so much for this story. Love it and you!

WOW! What an epic ending! :D
And a happy ending - something so rarely seen with Supernatural. :P
I just adore Dean (as always :P). No matter what, or who's there, Sam will always be Dean's to look after. :)
I was honestly alternating between going 'Awwww' and laughing in this chapter. It was soooo sweet, but there were parts that just cracked me up. Especially with Mary and John.
lol, I just loved Mary alternating between wanting to kill the alpha and worrying over Sam. And John's reaction was just perfect!
I especially loved the "Mary, You know I love you. But if you don't sit down and shut up..."
Mary - "You shut up."
That was hilarious. :D
And Sammy :) He was so cute in this chapter.
I kinda wondered how he would react to seeing John and Mary, and the whole "I'm dead. It didn't work." And appologizing over and over to Dean fits him perfectly, I could SO see him doing that.
But yeah for Dean convincing him otherwise. :)
Wonderful story! Definitely one I'll come back and read again and again :D

I would really really like the show to end this way somehow. I love it!
| huge sg1 fan chapter 6 . 7/1/2012
that was a good story. i really enjoyed reading it. i liked the ending a lot. great job. i think it would be cool if you did a sequel or a follow up story and we got to read how they rescued everybody else and how they are figuring out how to be a family again. i would really love to read about how sam and mary get to finally know each other. but anyways, great job :)

Aw... that was sweet. Thanks for this story! Loved it.

I am absolutely in love with this history! It will never tire me of reading it (already I it have done three times) and certainly I am going to translate and to stamp it on my language she to be read by all the times that it wants it. IT IS PERFECT! I loved especially the last two chapters and enjoyed every word through. Excellent the composition of characters and exciting up to the last second. I know that already they will have asked for it you often but I want to join with my major respect. PLEASE, continuation! It would be so beautiful that this was happening in the show, you should send your fic to the production that often they have been absent of ideas. Thank you for giving us your talent and I cannot wait that you publish other one or the sequel of this history. Any thing that is will be welcome because I will never stop reading anybody with so much talent. Many fondness from Argentina,kisses

This has been really fun to read. There's so much that you can do with this. I'd love to see how the Winchesters adjust to hunting as a family, how they take down the alpha vamp, what the alpha is ginna do with Sam's blood - is it just for food or is it important for other reasons. If they manage to pull the others out. Thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for writing!

I can't believe I missed Chapter 5 and 6 being posted. Crazy. Now that I'm finally caught up I have to say I loved this so much. It was nice seeing the family back together. I particularly enjoyed you showing the new dynamic and how things have changed greatly since John died and Mary is very clueless about her two boys' bond.
I'm sad to see this wonderful story end, you tied up many loose ends and make me wish this is what will happen come Season 8. I wouldn't mind seeing more from this in the future. Thanks for writing it. Charity

Great story! Thanks for sharing! :-)

Omg that was awesome!
| Indigo2831 chapter 6 . 7/1/2012
I really loved the story and the ideas there. I'm didn't love the way Dean treated his parents. It seemed very, very out of character for him to yell at his the Sainted Mary Winchester. I also think I would have liked to see Sam interact with his parents more, so this chapter felt a little incomplete. I think an epilogue is definitely overdue!
Overall, great job!

Thanks for the awesome! final chapter. I love how you wrapped up your story.
Your description of Dean as the world sees him was perfect, 'that his game face was back in place; that he was the Dean Winchester the rest of the world knew; that he was the confident fearless badass others always expected him to be.'
I really like how you wrote John. He has not been around his boys for the last six years, but he remembered how Dean takes care of his brother. 'his tone dry yet confident as he continued to lean back in his chair; because he knew from experience that if Dean said Sam was okay...then Sam was okay...knew Dean took his job as a big brother seriously – the only thing he took more seriously than hunting – and was thus in charge of Sam and would fiercely challenge anyone who tried to take that role from him.'
I can imagine how worried Mary would be about her boys and frustrated that she can't just jump back into her Mom role. It was nice how you wrote Mary as a hunter and wanting to kill the alpha vamp.
This was a wonderful observation and thought from John. 'Dean was different; was truly his own man now and would not take orders quite as easily; would be more likely to challenge John and make his own decisions.'
I loved the reunion scene between Dean and Sam. I felt sorry for Sam when he believed he had failed to save Dean. Sam wasn't upset about being dead, just that he didn't save his big brother. I'm glad that Sam now knows Dean is back and the brothers are together. I like how Sam mentioned, 'stone number one'.
I'm glad that John, Mary, and Dean are planning on trying to rescue their friends. It was a wonderful surprise that Sam was able to pull John and Mary from Purgatory along with Dean, I just wish Bobby could have come along too.
I enjoyed reading your story and loved the final scene as the brothers reunited.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

More.. More Please hurry up! ;)

Nooooo! You can't end it here! We need to see the boys and their parents' new family dynamic! Do things get awkward when John tries to take charge? How will Sam act around Mary? Please turn this into a verse! I love it!
