Oh my! Well, BJ, you had me in tears on this one!
Your writing is just so evocative! Yes, our mutual pal Swan did tell me that it was---but I had to experience it for myself.
I love how you get across Dean's intense feelings and how he fights so hard to keep them from overwhelming him.
So heartbreaking how he just wanted a normal, nothing day with John---and for his dad to really see and know him!
It's almost uncanny how readily one can picture Jensen's face while reading...and Jared's as well.
It's that descriptive flair again! Well done!
Author's Response: What a nice review! Well, tell Swan thanks for sending you over to my stories. I do think the Js are so brilliant in their performances that it is natural to picture them in a story, but I'm really happy my words and descriptions fit in with what they bring to the show. Thanks again! - B.J.

Thank you for a lovely brotherly moment. I'd missed the brothers this past season and this hit the spot for me. Sam's attempts and need to climb over, break down or simply weasel through the cracks in Dean's emotional wall was such a nice thing to see and had a wonderful imagery to it.

I agree with you completely. This was a GREAT way to get a Winchester fix. Well done. I WISH they had been able to talk like this, and if they did, that it had been caught on camera so all of us could see it too. Sigh.
Author's Response: Thanks! My wish is the CW scuttles the rest of their shows and gives every night over to the Winchesters so we can have all these long talks and such with the guys. That'll work, won't it? Take care, B.J.

In this case, Dean hadn't had time to dig a hole, hadn't yet found an empty box to stuff this bad experience in, hadn't yet performed his own ritualized burial of painful truths. --- I love the comparison here... soooo very true...
The rest of the conversation was tragically painful and true... a conversation that is sadly missing in the real show... but also the end result- with them realizing that despite their lives- they were 'richer' in so many other ways.
Very nice BJ- I really loved it!
Thanks again, Tree! Yeah, I wish the show had the time to let them come together and really discuss their hurts. Maybe come S5?
And through all their pain and the hard knocks of their lives, they do have each other. Take care, B.J.

That was a beautifuly written tag, the brotherly moments were lovely, i really miss them in the show, so thank you for sharing.
Thank you, what a lovely review. I love writing the boys talking, sharing their feelings and exploring the deeper hurts that the show doesn't have time to address.
I'm hoping S5 will bring them back together for more screen-time conversations, I miss seeing the boys talk.

I'll honestly admit that I hated JTS. With a passion. And I detest the idea of a third brother. Therefore, I almost didn't read this tag. But it was good. You did a good job of showing how I think Dean would have been feeling. How could he not. And, admittedly, I found Sam too forgiving in the episode. But that's just me. I still enjoyed this tag.
Thanks, Vanessa! That is quite a compliment considering you didn't enjoy the episode. For me, it is the episodes that are lacking something that drive me to write tags.
Here, I needed that brotherly moment, I needed them to address how they felt about having another brother, a son who got that normal life we all know they desire.
That was huge and a big gamble on Kripke's part, but it did allow them to revisit their feelings about Dad and how they were raised... and what they needed and wanted that he failed to provide them.
Thanks again and take care, B.J.

Honest, in character, caring, open, but not sugary sweet.......I 'm glad to have read this tag to JTS. I do wish there was enough time in an epi to have these brotherly moments, especially after a bomb like a third brother! Great job at giving that story line some much-needed closure.
Thanks, and that is the purpose of most of my tags, to fill in the parts of the story that I needed to see. They only have forty minutes and some episodes just need more brotherly moments.
And I'm always glad to hear that my conversations fit with their characters. Thanks again and take care, B.J.
