I came over to visit and read your story again because I wanted to see it with the banner. It looks awesome!
You did a great job with your story. I enjoyed all three sections, but my favorites were when you described John right after the fire and of course the adult Dean in the third section.
Until next time, take care.
Doesn't that banner make it special? I wish I could have it on Fanfiction. ilaria did a fabulous job, perfectly illustrating the meaning of the story. She did a banner for my next story too. I love my pretties!

This is very well-written and very, very hard to read. John hardening practically overnight into the relentless hunter of evil. Missouri's take on the Winchester family dynamics was very interesting reading. And you did an awesome job capturing Dean's thoughts as he and Sam drive back Home.
Their lives are so tragic and to see how their family was, and how quickly everything good died...yeah, totally heartbreaking.
And I've always theorized on how Dean felt after the fire, how he held on to Sammy, the one good thing he had left.
Take care, B.J.

"The scream from that night lasted the rest of my life." This line was really powerful to me, so heartbreaking and so true.
"Whatever voice remained was reserved for tiny ears, whispering so low that no one beyond their tight embrace could hear." I loved this, the image of Dean only speaking for Sam.
The whole story was really poetic and lyrical, and also so poignant, heartbreaking and bittersweet. Great job on this! Very well written.
Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. I love imagining little Dean caring for baby Sammy. Dean lost everything and Dad was distant and different, and for a four-year-old, I just see him holding on so tight to Sammy, comforting him and in his own way getting comfort back from the warmth of his little brother, from the certainty that he still had him. Take care, B.J.

I'm always drawn to stories about Dean as that innocent 4 year old whose future, whose life-purpose and essentially his entire world were catastrophically changed that night. I really enjoyed reading about that 4 year old Dean in your story. Good job.
Oh, me too! We only got a glimpse of 'normal' for the Winchesters, but it told the story. A loving Mom and Dad, a baby brother he adored and such a beautiful, happy child. And then we know how he turned out, still sensitive and caring, but changed...that little boy somehow buried within the broken man.
Seeing how that four-year-old boy lost everything is so tragic and yet we know the good man he still became. But it is impossible not to mourn the lost innocence. Thanks for the review, much appreciated. - B.J.

GOOD story. I love how you tied everything back to family in each segment. John needing to fight back against what destroyed his family, Missouri needing to help the battered family, and Dean holding on to the family he's got as hard as he can. It's interesting that Dean is telling the story told to Sam specifically, when the other two really aren't talking to anyone in particular. Great Job!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. It always comes back to family with the Winchesters, doesn't it? And I loved how Dean talked to Sam about the fire in Home. Really the only time he has talked about it. Take care, B.J.

Three very emotional points of view, one point in time that had such consequences...nice one
Author's Response: Thank you, Jacq! Yes, it is so tragic how one night changed so many lives. I always have a soft spot in my heart for little Dean, how loving his family was and how much he lost that night. They all lost so much, and yet the world gained from their sacrifice as they saved so many others who could then have the lives they never could. Thanks again, B.J.

Unbeievable BJ - your story was yet another of my 'finalists' - thats the problem with having such great talent around here- it makes having to pick out one- VERY difficult.
Loved your POV's - very well done and insightful- which is NEVER surprising in anything you write.
Author's Response: Oh, Tree! Thank you, that is super nice to hear. I think you made the right choice in the challenge, Rae and Jenny did a great job. I was glad you offered the challenge and got me revisiting that night. Later, B.J.
