Awww! So touching! Great drabble :D It's so heartbreaking - especially the "his youngest had tearfully packed up everything, including childish sentiment".
Thank you very much, Rae. I tried to convey a sense of urgency in their leaving and a sense of remorse on John's part for what had to be done to protect his boys, even if they didn't understand.
ps My email addy ends in 666.

Perfect. I'm glad John isn't immune to realizing that time passes far far too quickly. I know that I am constantly aware of time passing and my girls growing up too fast. Thank you!
Author's Response: Thank you Primrose. As mothers I think we can guess how John really felt deep down inside.

Awww, just heartbreaking. But wonderful job of creating the mood. Great details.
Author's Response: Thank you. My father died when I was ten so father's day was kind of sad for me for a long time...and the turtle...it was what I made for him when I was six, out of sawdust and glue and painted brown and green.

i love seeing john's pov. seeing his feelings on everything gives me a chance to like him for a change.
Author's Response: Thanks! It's said that a child has his values in place by the time he's ten years old and although their life was about the farthest thing from perfect, John Winchester raised two righteous sons, each a victim of circumstance.

So heart breaking, as a father to have to deal with thoughts like that about his boys. So sad.
Thanks for sharing
Thanks, Schelz. I think he knew that he would loose them both eventually but that he could live with the consequences if he could keep them both safe.

Sad and touching one, so much the real John I learned to like thanks to you, I owe you!!!
Author's Response: Thank you, my friend. I've always thought that after Mary's death, John's main purpose in life was to save his youngest son and to accomplish this he had to be tough and single minded to a fault. And he was, right up until the end when he gladly gave up his life for that of his eldest son.

Oh, powerful and and sad. I have a feeling Sam's handmade turtle is going to make it to the storage container in Black Rock.
Author's Response: Thanks Sue. I think that's exactly where the old softy would put it.
