Awesome tag, Jules. I enjoyed your take on the moments following the end of "The End". (Ha--that sure sounds weird.) It's funny--I rarely write tags myself and yet I too was inspired to do one for this episode. Guess the writers just left us all wanting more...
The end of The End, lol. That reminds me of an email I got at work the other day - "Can you send me whatever it is you need to send me?" That gave me the giggles, and a lot of scope for a really smart-arsed reply - lol.
That was a great closing scene, though, wasn't it? I'm surprised there aren't more tags for this one. There was so much meat in that scene, and so much left unsaid. Fitting, too, that they used the bridge where the boys said goodbye to John in Salvation. Sort of came full circle, didn't it?
Thanks so much for reading, hun.

that's a lovely tag. I think it captures the worn down yet still hopeful emotions of the boys so well without being indulgent or overblown.
Thank you very much. I think that deep down, they both still want to be by each other's side - it would be hard to walk away from a lifetime of being that close, just because of a year of hell. Their bond has to snap them back eventually. Or is that just me being a Pollyanna?
Thanks so much for reading.

The nice thing about tags is they actually say what you'd wished they'd had time to show on screen. I liked this one.
I'll be sorry to see you go, but I know exactly how you're feeling. I was in the middle of a story myself, and life hit hard. Now, I'm having trouble even keeping up with the stories I'm wanting to read. It's how it is sometimes. I'll look forward to your return.
Thanks, Julie. I usually stay right away from tags, because so many others do them so much better than I do, and I really have issues with writing the same thing others are. But this one just wouldn't leave me alone.
Oh, thanks for that. I hate how real life gets in the way of writing. Damn, if I was independently wealthy, I'd stay home and write full-time. But sometimes the muse doesn't play nice, and you have to walk away to refresh.

Jules- This is what was missing in the end of 5x04! this is wonderful and exactly how I pictured both boys reacting to the whole thing!!
take care of yourself!
Thanks, Pink, I will.
I really wanted to see what happened next - that end scene was just so great, I watched it a few times - don't think I'll ever get tired of it. There was just so much behind Dean's words, and that little flinch Sam gave when Dean pulled the knife just broke my heart. That and Sam's inability to look Dean in the eyes for long.
So stoked that you loved this one, hun.
