Superb--- as one has come to expect...always enjoy your sensitive description of Dean...he does so want to believe, doesn't he?
Dare we hope he's not disappointed?
Hey! Yes, the one thing we've discovered about Dean is he is not how he first appears. He does want/need to believe and we so want that four-year-old boy to have something he can believe in.
I can't wait to see where Kripke will take the boys. Hopefully they will find some peace and hope and we can see them happy again.

I think you are really selling yourself short. This was fantastic. It was very well written. I loved your word choice throughout. You really did an excellent job putting into words how Dean's life has been and how his circumstances are now. I agree with you. The Winchesters could use a helping hand.
Author's Response: Thank you, that was really sweet. Oh, Dean, he has always taken on so much and has always had that lack of faith. Even with the knowledge that God and angels do exist, he still lacks any belief in them. And no wonder, with the answers he's gotten so far. I just hope something changes to give him the hope he so desperately needs. Take care, B.J.

That's some pretty deep thinking. I like it alot and I'm with you. I just want Dean to find some peace. Both brothers deserve it.
Author's Response: Thanks, Micaiah! Dean deserves some peace, both brothers do. I think asking for help is a first step. Dean has always been so contained, believing only in himself and his family. He needs to look outside himself and accept help from others too. I just hope someone good is listening and is willing to help. Even a strong man needs assistance when times are this rough. Thanks again, B.J.

That's a lot like what I was thinking too! Poor Dean!
Author's Response: Thanks! Kripke sure is putting both boys through the wringer this season! I think Dean can keep up the brave front until he loses Sam too. Seeing Sam back hooked on the DB and hearing his anguished moans, well, that's just one more nail in Dean's coffin. He can't go on like this. Here's hoping he gets the answer he needs. Thanks for the shiny stars. Later, B.J.

A wonderful tag, the end of this episode broke my heart, Sam screaming and Dean asking for help, i really hope that they get some.
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, Kripke put both boys at their lowest point here...and left us hanging for six weeks! I do believe that when you get so low, you either can't get up or you rebuild stronger. We all know, these Winchesters are made of sturdy stuff, they will be stronger in the end. I just want to see them get there. Take care, B.J.

That felt so like the depths of despair for Dean at the end of that episode, didn't it? I can see why you want this to be true - I just wonder if Kripke is more likely to push Dean into saying yes instead now though.....Being an atheist I'd find a God-like solution a bit of a cop out, but as a humanist, I just want Dean's pain to end!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. I still can't see Dean saying 'yes'. But with Kripke, you never know. And his job is to keep us guessing, and he sure knows his job! Take care, B.J.

Very interesting tag. Dean's famine was not even realized until after the fact....when the void was suddenly realized...... then he yearned to have that void filled. Dean's junkyard pleas were so desperate and pain-filled. It was a great ending to that epi. Thought-provoking tag for me. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, I kept waiting for him to take up drinking in excess, but that would have been too conventional. Dean is anything but! The true void in Dean's life has always been faith, belief in someone beyond his family. I love the journey they have taken him on and I hope he is finally allowed a connection to something larger than himself. He deserves that. Later, B.J.

I agree - they have been through so much, and there is so much pressure riding on them; the weight of not only destiny but of what the Winchesters see as their failures. Not through fault of their own, but through manipulation of both brothers by powers far higher than themselves.
Is it destiny, or the whim of Heaven and Hell?
Surely there will be peace for the brothers at the end, and not the eternal kind. Surely there is something out there apart from one cut-off angel, that would choose to be on their side instead of seeking their destruction as callously as someone would squash a mosquito against their arm.
But then, it is at the darkest hour when things usually begin to turn, so perhaps Dean really needed to hit the absolute rock-bottom for his prayers to pour forth from that broken, tortured but still beating heart, and for those fervent, desperate prayers to be heard by the One who can put an end to all this.
Just as an aside - if God finally does answer, I hope he knocks Michael and Raphael arse over teakettle and smites Zachariah into a little insignificant pile of dust.
Hey, Jules! As usual, you cut to the heart of Dean's issues. Yes, I too believe you must hit rock bottom before you can start climbing back up. I think Dean needed to be pressed down that low for him to ever ask for help. It just isn't in his make-up to believe, he's never had any experience in someone outside his family coming to help.
I agree, God needs to get his children back in line, I'm just not sure I want to lose that combativeness that Zachariah brings out. I just love his snarky way of taunting Dean, but I suppose even the best baddies have to bite it sometime.
Take care, B.J.
