I know that I'm seriously late in getting to read this- but all I can say is WOW!! this is brilliant! I absolutely love the Yellow eyes banter and your John is so heartwenching...
I started crying reading the little tidbits from S2 which are perfectly threaded throughout the story!
Hey, there you are! Never too late, thanks so much for looking my fic up.
Thanks heaps for your lovely words. "wow" and "brilliant" just make my day.
In all serioiusness, this fic was a really draining write. Being in Hell with a grieving and devastated John was pretty hard (as you found out!)I've always been a john!girl - from the beginning I always believed he might be a ba$tard, but he was a ba$tard who loved his sons.
This was a plot bunny that wouldn't leave me alone. John's death in IMTOD was such a shock, and the boys were so spun out - it wouldn't leave me alone that such a dymanic man, who had had such a huge impact on his boys and on the Show would just...disappear...And I also thought there was no way YE and Hell would not make him pay.
Thank you very much for your tears and your stars, I treasure them both.

Okay, I'm back.
John's anguish over Dean's emotional bomb was palpable, screaming off the page. And his anger, not at Dean thank God, but at the manipulation of himself and his sons in the YED's grand plan, was achingly real. Everything had slammed into him with such force, it was a wonder that the emotional storm didn't rip John's soul to shreds more thoroughly than the fires of Hell had tried to do.
I could feel my heart sinking along with John's as he watched the deal being played out to its inevitable conclusion, could feel his frustration and panic in his need to get back topside any way he could, to save his sons from a fate literally worse than death.
And I think that I recoiled along with him when he used his hunter's and soldier's eyes to scope out his surroundings and saw the demonic horde for what they really were. I did appreciate his insights on the minor demons, though, when he realised that it was Azazel who kept them stirred up, and without his presence, they just became mindless, wandering vessels of evil.
But....I did get rather grossed out when they were sniffing and licking at the blood on his palms when he dug his fingernails into his flesh....ewwww! That gave me the shivers.
The fight was excruciating. And so intense. The battle in the flame-lit dark, the demons rending and tearing each other as well as John in a desperate, almost mindless, effort to break free of the Pit as the door slowly unlocked. The way that they were drawn to the blood and destruction like a pack of wild dogs - sent shivers down my spine.
And then the final confrontation, with John trying desperately to get his incorporeal body to move while Azazel taunted Dean and Sam, Bobby and Ellen tried to close the gate. I loved John realising that Sam would sense Dean in trouble. And it screams out at full volume how much love those two boys have for each other - not only Dean throwing away his life to get his brother back, but Sam leaving the gate, not caring that all of Hell could escape, to rush to his big brother's aid. And John drinking it all in during those final moments was the icing on the cake.
At last they connected as a family, without the threat hanging over them - well, with the new threat temporarily forgotten. At last John could show that he was a father as well as a hunter and a drill sergeant. At last he could reveal his pride in and love for his boys.
I've cringed, I've cried, I've shuddered, I've raged helplessly, and I've gasped in horror and anguish, all through this stunning epic. And I am left in awe.
This is truly a magnificent story.
*gasp, blinking eyes in the dazzling light* Stars! Jules! I am honoured.
Ok, we've drained our cups, let's get started...
Thank you so much for slogging your way through my fic. I know it was draining for you and I know that feeling for John is new for you and in many instances, goes against your grain. So first, a huge thanks for sticking with me.
I love how you pick specific parts to comment on. You always seem to find the parts that are significant to me. I'm loving your analysis, you just get it every time.
I found the fight hard to write. I had it in my head - loud and wild and vicious. Getting it into words was the part I was worried I couldn't pull off, so your reaction and comments are extremely satisfying.
Thank you so much for your faith in me to stick out the ride, I appreciate it more than you know.. Your thoughtful and honest comments per chapter made my day.

I really don't know quite what to say after reading this.
All the emotion was just so skilfully wrought, and unashamedly laid bare, that I've had to read each chapter and then go away to let it all sink in before coming back to comment.
I'm fighting off tears at the moment, actually, after reading the final few lines of the last chapter. And I'm not quite sure I can put the reason into words. Perhaps it's because of the revelation of John the father at the very end, and the naked pride and love he had for his sons that he couldn't show while he was alive. Perhaps it's the thought that he was finally going to be with his beloved Mary after all the years alone. I don't know. I just know that the computer screen is actually starting to blur, so I might just take a moment, have a cup of tea, and come back to this in a little while....
Oh Jules, the fact that you need a cup of tea and some breathing space to gather your thoughts after reading my work has floored me. Move over, pour another cup while you're there...

Could see John walling himself up so that nothing got in or out, despite being shattered into a million pieces by Sam's death and Dean's devastation. And the horde of hungry demons prowling around, incited more and more into a feeding frenzy like a pack of ephemeral sharks was positively creepy.
The self-examination that John was undergoing was an interesting insight into this very complex man. The analysis that he did on the YED's taunts about his failings as a father, and the knowledge that he had instilled in his sons a lot more than just how to be a weapon, was inspiring and touching at the same time. For all his faults, and I'm sorry but they were many, he did shape the boys into the men that they became, and in training them together, he helped to cement that brotherly bond that not even death could break. Not all of his choices were good ones, and some were downright ludicrous, but he instilled a set of uncompromising values in his sons in the matter of good versus evil, and not only how to fight but when to fight.
The devastation visited upon John all over again when Hell showed him the vision of Sam's body lying on the bed, and the subsequent crack in his defences was heart-rending. As were the demonic taunts and catcalls while Dean was pouring out his heart to his dead brother, with John having the front row seat.
And always, Yellow-eyes, ready to twist that sharp blade of defeat deeper and deeper into John's heart - into his soul, turning every thought to despair in an effort to break the man over and over again.
If I didn't know that there was a bullet topside with Azazel's name on it, I think I would be almost as despairing as John right now, after the relentless tearing and battering that he has been subjected to.
This is truly a masterpiece.
Wow, you felt everything I was wanting to project in this chapter, so I am thrilled beyond words. Yes, John made many mistakes (no need to apologise - my john!girl factor is not via rose coloured glasses) but that does not lessen the trauma I felt Hell cruelly would have showed him.
It was heart rending rewatching Dean's vigil at his brother's death bed over and over (to get the dialogue exact) knowing what I was going to do with it, inject into it. That it affected you so meant it worked, so thanks for that.
Hearing my chapter called a masterpiece from an author of your calibre is an honour indeed. Thank you so much for such a deeply thought out review.

Okay, Petra...*shakes fist towards the west/southwest*...I have a bone to pick with you, mate. Thanks to you and this epic story, I now have a plot bunny - a JOHN plot bunny - biting me on the arse. And I'm not happy. Do you know how many plot bunnies I have running madly around in the WIP folder????? I don't need another one!!!! Much less a JOHN one!!!! ....*starts tugging my shaggy Sammy hair out by the roots*....
Okay, now that that's out of my system....*takes a deep breath*...on with the review.
The YED's revelation about needing only one of the special children must have been the ultimate betrayal to John. The overwhelming, crushing knowledge that he had actually - albeit completely unwittingly - furthered the demonic plan by training his sons to be warriors must have hurt like nothing the black horde could have done to him in the physical realm. He had stripped them of their innocence - of their childhood, in the hope that he was protecting them from evil, teaching them to be ready - to be soldiers. Only to find out too late that he was playing right into Azazel's sulphurous hands.
What a soul-shattering blow to the father who had given up his very life in a last-ditch effort to see his sons safe.
And what a cringe-worthy moment - that kaleidoscope of images of Dean, the demons picking out the worst of his self-destructive behaviour during the six months between John's death and Sam's, and playing it for John in all its sordid glory. Twisting the reality and leaving out the parts that didn't suit their plan for the senior hunter's torture.
And then comes the nightmare of being forced to watch Sam fight, and finally seeing that his baby son was doomed no matter what the outcome. I could feel John's swing back and forth from rage to panic to anguish as the fight raged back and forth between Sam and Jake. And Azazel's barbs just rocketed the tension through the roof. The final, mind-numbing defeat came with the slowing of Sam's heart and the triumphant cries of the demon horde, followed by the appearance of red eyes amongst the sea of black - the crossroads demon, and the allusion to the pending deal for Dean's soul.
But I must say, that the moment that John went wild and began to tear into the demons - my soul cheered. And it cheered again when he began to pull himself back from the brink of sheer despair and into a physical sense of himself - as if his body was re-forming around his battered and tortured soul. The hunter had returned.
Oh - one more thing before I go rescue the old girl - she's managed to get the linen cupboard door open and now she's stuck in there with her claws caught in a blanket ..... That thought of Azazel's about John's frenzied attack on his minions, and what a leader Sam would have made if he'd taken after John - that was bloody chilling.....Jules
Well knock me down with a feather! A JOHN plot bunny hopping madly inside Mizpah's head. I am so excited! Yes, yes, I know your WIP folder tends to get a life of it's own, but this is thrilling news for us john!girls. You will do him justice, I just know it cos I know you, and I know your work.
This is such a well thought out review Jules, you have understood everything I wanted to convey. You just 'get it.' I just love that I have stirred you up so much, it feels like I have a wine in my hand and you sitting beside me! How I love the phrase "sulphurous hands". And yes, I wanted readers to feel John's anger and grief strenthen him, this was always the motivator I felt in John. This is what gave him that cold edge. I am very grateful for your last comment because it felt like that writing it, and in light of season four, 'bloody chilling' is a worry. I remember our conversation in which you discussed how like his father Sam is. Sera Gamble recently spoke of Sam internalising and withdrawing more and more like his dad...
And Mousche, haven't your caused your mum enough worries to last a lifetime!!

The tension just keeps stretching, like a rubber band pulled past its tolerance, but too tough to break.
I felt for John in this chapter - and you know what a big admission that is for me, since I'll tell anyone who will listen that I think John's a pr*ck. But I could feel each hit as he experienced it - each horrible, devastating revelation, each demonic blow to his metaphorical body, to his mind, to his sanity - and to his heart, as the show in Cold Oak began to play out.
John's pain and horror for his youngest just smacks the reader between the eyes, and keeps on smacking. I wanted to scream at the screen for the demonic hoarde to shut the flock up as they taunted him endlessly. The manoeuvring in the dark for the front row seats, the shifting of the flames, the fact that John wants so much to lash out but can't hit a target.....it alternately sends shivers down the spine and screams from the soul.
Hell of a read, hon. Hell of a read.
Oh wow, that IS a big admission from you. I'm really glad that I may have had a hand in turning you, just a little...
You know I agree that John could be a pr*ck, but I can never be convinced he wasn't a pr*ck who didn't love his boys. You also know that I believe that such a dynamic character as John, who had (has) such a huge impact on the boys, could never just disappear, so I just HAD to write him. I knew that what we felt watching, John would feel ten fold, especially with that added demonic twist.
And Jules, you review like you write - with eloquence and flair, and I am grateful for your thoughtful review. To know that I had such an impact that you wanted to scream out and shivers raced down your spine is a huge compliment.
Thank you very much, you made my day.

I had to read this, and then go away and absorb it before I came back to review.
Season 4 has been hitting me rather deeply, and I finally figured out why over the weekend. I'm where Sam has been - I believe in God, and angels, and the concept of Heaven and Hell. And I have questioned when bad things have happened. But I've also had prayer answered, and proof that God does exist, and that He hasn't abandoned us to our fate. Season 4 is challenging me on so many levels, faith being the main one, in his depiction of angels and the whole holy war, just as it's challenging poor, tormented Sammy.
And this story is doing the same - hitting me on a faith level. As I said, I believe in Heaven and Hell - the Pit exists, and it is torture. And your first chapter brought it to life in vibrant colour and surround sound. The sound/silence, dark/light, sensation/deprivation - it all sprang to life before my eyes as I read through the first chapter. I could hear the voices, feel the flames, sense John's utter helplessness as the six months of season 2 unfolded.
The demons, the taunts, the torture - it's so beautifully depicted. You are tortured. You do have a ringside seat to the events unfolding in the world above. You are assaulted by every imaginable failure and wrongdoing, playing over and over in an endless loop. Because that is hell. That is the fate of a damned soul.
Petra, this story is so deserving of the awards it has won so far. And I hope that it continues to garner the recognition it so richly deserves.
Wow, Jules, thank you so much for such a well thought out review. I know you are a person of deep faith and deep thinking, so I am not surprised that you needed time away from my fic to mull it all over in that non-stop brain of yours. The fact that you reflected on it in terms of your own faith and feelings, and how S4 is situating you is a great compliment and I am humbled that my work had this affect on you. Truth be told, this was an emotionally draining fic to write.
Your comments about my writing and your compliment about my awards put a huge smile on my face, thanks so much for your kind words, from a writer of your caliber, they are words to be treasured.

My absolute favorite SN story! I love John, and what he did for his family is beyond heroic. But when he died for Dean, realizing that this would also save Sam...I cried. My heart was broken for all of them. One of the best understandings of John's heart and soul. Mary must have been one hell of a woman! Thank You, thank you, thank you.
From one die hard John girl to another, thank you for such a lovely review. I too, believe that John's final act was the epitomy of his love for his boys and his faith and belief that Dean would save Sam.

I had always hoped that somebody would write a story about John and how he fought his way out of Hell, and this is exactly what I'd been dying to read -- and so much more!
From start to finish, you had me crying, sighing, sobbing, cheering and everything in between! The imagery was intense and every emotion played out like a symphony.
Thanks for the wonderful ride!
I couldn't ask for a nicer review Cricket!
For you to say that my story was 'exactly what you'd been dying to read" in a plot bunny you had been wondering about is the highest compliment you can pay me.
For me, there was no way a character as dynamic and signifcant as John would just fade out of the Winchester story, not to mention that John in Hell was a story begging to be told.

As both elder Winchester men watched, the boy who was their light, the one ray of good, of purity left in their tormented existences, arched his back and threw back his head.
and then you had me cheering at the end, when John was sucking it up and making plans!

This: “He’s doing what you trained him to do. Sam first, despite the fact that you always knew it would be his downfall.”
Catches me when I think about the upcoming episodes. The cycle of sacrifice can only bring tears. I don't know what you've seen and haven't, but I'll just say that exact sentiment coarsed through me watching previews for next week.
Oh, and I agree with you. Wolfpup's work is truly fantastic. :)

I'll keep your comment re sentiment on your mind when I see the previews shortly ("Ghostfacers" here next week) I agree that all this Winchester sacrifice is so not gunna end well - I hope Kripke looks after our boys as he approaches the season finale.

Wel hell hunny, here is the end of the LHR and gee it has so been worth the effort. This is a strange (good strange!) and wonderful work of dark, edgy torment and I know it has been a labour of love. This shows in the careful and skilled crafting of the words and the great emotion it has brought out in your readers.
"John was overwhelmed with how fragile his son looked" these words got to me Petra. Fragile is so anti-Dean and for john to see it would be devastating. I can see Dean's broken face, the vulnerability, fear, guilt, torment that Jensen (fine acting) put into that script,and its your words that are bringing that image back so vividly for me.
"Hellfire roared like a fireworks display and demons shrieked their ecstasy in unison. John was paralyzed by the sheer force of Hell’s exultation" well they have waited so long I suppose they were always going to have their moment but is it just the battle and not the war that they have won? Oh yeah I think it is a here is John back in hnter mode and seeking his escape.
So here are the boys opening the gate and John riding the daemonic wave outta the pit, this is poetic because ina way the boys are freeing John so that he can go free them. Wow its sorta cyclic cosmic kharma! Owwh, gotta sit down - I went all Zen for a minute! Lou's baby bhuddie lessons are paying off!
Gee hunny this whole last section is a killer. It's wonderful to have the last focus of such a emotionally charged story be one of peace for a tired and damaged man as John. And his love for his boys and theirs for him is a great gift to leave us with.
I have a feling you may well be worn out Petra, but its a great piece and I salute you and offer my thanks for sharing it with us.
Boy, does this review get to me. You are so intuitive Bev, you get me, you get my work. You articulate things so I go "yes, that IS what I meant!"
Your swing on Winchesters working together on each side of the gate was phenomenal. 'Love 'cyclic cosmic kharma'!
And yes, it was a draining and emotion write. Mu poor ole muse was strung out for a while there - pretty heavy going this dark stuff... I needed that ending as much as you readers did, as much as our three boys did. We all KNEW it was coming of course, yet our relief is still immense, go figure...
Thanks for showing me the parts that impacted on you. This means alot coz I know your love affair with words matches your love affair with Winchester, so I take this praise seriously.
And finally, 'careful and skilled crafting' has put a serious smile on my face!! Almost a smirk...
