Really enjoyed reading this, you did a great job showing the boys interaction, and I love that John wasn't an asshole. :) Loved the blackjack terms and analogies. Great job. :)

This story made me cry. Serious, halfway-to-sobbing, bunch-of-kleenex-beside-me, crying. You're an amazing writer! I've never had to take breaks while reading a story before.
Your 'essay' really cleared up some of the references for me. I knew pretty much nothing about blackjack, but I'll definitely be going back to re-read. After a bit. Okay, a while. And restocking on tissues.

Thank you, for putting into words something I've felt for a long time now, about being well adjusted adults and how families are "supposed" to be "normal". Overall, there was a little too much crying in the story but everything else was so very overwhelmingly well done I would give the story 5 out of 5 stars! Thank you for your hard work in putting a story like this together! I have to go check out the rest of your list now LOL

Nice! One of the best fics about their childhood I've read! (and I've read! a lot!) I really liked your twist with the reveal that Dean had been hit, not Sam. The blackjack references were really neat too!

Gah! That twist at the end of the chapter! I was so sure she had hit Sam and then I was like "wait minute, Sam IS conscious. What is she talking about?...ohhhh no, no no no no."
Great stuff! :)

Okay, I just read this whole story in one go, and let me just say, bravo.
I usually don't cry when reading fic (H/C is my favorite genre, so I'd die of dehydration if I cried at every one I read.)
But this? As soon as Dean started crying in his hospital room, I lost it. The fics that always make me cry (and the episodes, for that matter) are the ones where Dean finally can't keep up his tough facade and just breaks under everyone else's abuse. I'm a Dean-girl at heart, what can I say? And this really tugs at my "Poor Dean" heartstrings.
I hate that my eyes hurt and my nose is stuffy now, but I love your story too much to really care. Great job!

This was a brilliant story, and a really clever way of writing it. Awesome!

I really enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to reading what you come up with next. I did like the blackjack metaphor, but since I only minimally understand how to play the game, I am not sure I got everything you were trying to say. Great Job !

I love, love how Dean coaxes Sam up onto the bed with him and holds him. At this point that's what Sam needs more than any words. And Sam's brokenness is totally believable if he really thought he'd not only deeply hurt the person he loved the most, but also permanently damaged that most important relationship. I also like John's unexpected understanding and gentleness. I felt comforted by this chapter, too!

Very interesting - it's neat to see the underlying premise to the story: the iceberg beneath the tip. The whole fic was very well written. Keep up the good work!
