It's beautiful. Sam working through his pain and feeling undeserving of Dean's sacrifice. Really powerful one this one but you handled it well.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm really happy that you liked it. It was really something that wrote itself as soon as I let it. Hugs, Vonnie

Just found this little offering - and I'm sorry it's taken me so long.
This story ended much more hopefully that I was expecting given your warning of a character death. Sammay be desperately sad but at least he plans to live an honourable life in memory of Dean. Love that.
Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to send me this review. It really made my day. The warning was for Dean's death and maybe I shouldn't have put it on there. I wanted to convey that it's hardest for the ones that survive and especially for Sam in this chase. In the end we all go through this kind of thing and in living the live our loved ones wanted us to, they will live on. Hugs, Vonnie

I know what you mean about not wanting to touch Dean's deal, but I also know that when a plot bunny is nipping at your heels, you won't get any peace until you sit down and hammer away at the keyboard. It's like a plot bunny exorcism....
This was chokingly sad. Sam's devastation and hopelessness really comes through. The utterly heart-shattering grief and overwhelming guilt crushing the life out of him was very well painted. And I loved his vow to carry on because Dean wanted him to, and holding out a hope that one day it will be enough to pull Dean out of a hell he didnt' deserve. Sad to think that Sam feels he deserves it, though, but we all know how his mind works.
And the words of the song fit really well. I've never heard it - it possibly never made it to our shores - but the lyrics are beautiful.
"There will never be any peace for me." That line really got to me. I hope that one day there will be peace for Sam - he didn't ask for this. Neither did Dean. They just got stuck in the middle of a holy war. But as sad as that line was, it was also a wonderfully accurate peek into Sam's state of mind while he was kneeling on the floor of that house, cradling his brother's mangled body.
Really good work, hon......Jules
Author's Response: You are so kind and wonderful. It means a lot to hear this words from you. The song is actually from a Christian artist by the name of Wayne Watson. I wouldn't think it made it to Australia. Anyway, I'm glad you thought it was fitting. Thanks for the wonderful and lenghty review. Hugs, Vonnie

That was really great, Vonnie. You could really feel Sam's pain and guilt through your words. So sad.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you think so. Sometimes sadness just feels good too. Sounds weird, doesn't it? Hugs, Vonnie

How do you do this, writing something that's so extremely sad and beautiful at the same time? Listened to the song after reading the chapter, it's so special - wonderful how you connect it with Sam's feelings. This one truly shines!
Author's Response: Thanks, I really don't know how I came up with this. Just listening to the song made me think of the sadness the ones left behind feel and how much strength it takes to go on. And I just connected this with Sam, because to me, he shows a lot of the inner strength it would take to go on. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Hugs, Vonnie

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad this came through, because I wanted to show how much inner strength Sam actually has and that there is always hope. Hugs, Vonnie
