I'm always late to the game so to speak. When you posted this story- life was insane and I tucked it away for a rainy day so to speak. Life is still hectic and I'm hormonal and needed a pick me up! This weeks episode helped and I adored this story too!
I love how when the show tears the boys apart you find a way to try and fix it and I love you for that. I'm a glass half full kind of gal so this is what I needed.
I also just read the review replies you left me for the last batch of stories I reviewed of yours. I appreciate you and Christine's well wishes over the loss of my father. Time heals and I've been so busy so that helps too but yeah, still miss him lots.
I'm so glad you are still part of the fandom when so many of my favorite authors have bailed. Your stories always bring me joy so thank you so much for sharing!
Hun, my grandmother (who raised me) died in 1988, and I still miss her. You always carry that little hole in your heart that key people in your life leave; you just learn to deal with it a bit better over time. I think that's perhaps the "time heals" bit, because we never forget them. We just somehow work out a way to keep going without them being here.
Yeah, I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Pollyanna - I have to have my happy ending! Even during season 8 when things were messy and I wanted to smack my beloved Dean over the head with a very large lump of wood. So I tried to get inside his head a little - scary place at the best of times...almost as bad as being inside my own head at the moment....and attempt to dig right down into what he was thinking and feeling, and how he would rationalise everything when he was alone - and after he'd been given a wee bit of hope in the form of a little present from Sammy.
And don't worry, my friend - I'm down but not out where writing is concerned. It's been hard to do, but you know, even though I've found the actual writing process difficult, the ideas still keep coming. Weird, isn't it? If I could just get them from my head to the Word document, I'd be a very happy bunny, as my wonderful beta Ziggy would say. (actually she'd be a pretty happy bunny, too, just quietly - lol)
Anyway, Claudia - I'm sending you a little pick-me-up via email. Hope you enjoy, and hang in there. You're in our prayers.

Oh you finally uploaded the banner, its amazing. I read this story on my phone when you posted, now I am leaving my review. You know what, you should have been the writer of the series *sigh* you already know what I think about the show now, about brothers, about Dean.... but after reading this story, I feel sympathetic to them. Poor boys, still love each other to death *sniff* Sammy bought a gift for Dean and Dean can't wait to see his Sammy.. I'm happy!! That's one of the many reasons I love you so much... goddess of the plot twisting :D moremoremore please <3
Hugs you tight <3 Ritu
Hugs you tight back!
Yes, finally got the banner from auntie. She's been busy with a sailing regatta, so I couldn't disturb her, and I hadn't finished putting the final tweaks on the story myself anyway. This was a very late one.
Yes, they still do love each other, even though they want to punch each other out at times. And that's what keeps me hoping that they will get back on the same page and work out their differences, because through it all, the love is always there.
And that other story you've been nagging me about is going to start rolling out tonight! I've almost finished the final chapter. No, you can't have it.

A very nice late Christmas gift, the Impala for Dean and your story for us readers!
I liked Dean bristling at the waitress when she dissed Sam ...Damn they love each other so much so they know exactly how to hurt each other.
How are you, Bev? Long time no hear. Hope you're keeping yourself well. And it's great to see you back on the site, too, I might add.
I'm chuffed that you enjoyed this little pressie. And yep, it's so frustrating, isn't it? They do love each other, and that's what makes us want to belt them over the back of the head sometimes. If they'd just sit down and listen to each other for once!!!
Ah, well, if it was all sunshine and roses, we'd have nothing to write about, would we?
Thanks so much for coming along for the ride, Bev.

Another great story from my favorite author. As always, well written and lovely. Please keep writing.
Thank you very much! I shall keep writing, just as long as my muse holds out. She's been on a rather extended holiday of late, but I think she's ready to start work again - lol.
I'm really glad you enjoyed this little Christmas prsent, even though the boys didn't give me a lot of joy and good tidings before the hiatus!

I guess this will be AU when the episode airs tonight but I sure wish they would do something as good as this, we deserve it after watching their relationship disintegrate this season.
Amazing fic sis, you totally got Dean's mindset here, he feels hard done by and is angry with Sam for not looking for him, though to be fair he has just taken Sam's words and drawn his own conclusions why his little brother didn't look for him, not bothering to find out the real reasons.
Could so imagine him heading to a bar after the hunt, not in that much of a hurry to go to Sam after the stunt he pulled and Sam's reaction to it. Totally Dean though that he would up and leave after the bar owner dissed his little brother, he may do that but nobody else can.
So believable that Sam would get Dean a gift and how appropriate that it's a working miniature of his baby, showing that despite the friction between them, there is still strong love there, however deeply hidden. And great that Dean found it buried in the duffle when the edge of the box dug into his head.
Happy New Year to you sis, and thanks so much for this wonderful fic, keeping my fingers crossed the show gives us something as good in episode 8:10.
Yep, got AU'd within the first few minutes..*sigh*...but things got better towards the end of the eppy.
I think Dean's reacting to what he perceives, and isn't looking beyond that. He spent a year fighting for his life every minute - as far as we know he didn't sleep...?...only to get back topside and find Sam didn't look for him.
But I believe Sam honestly thought Dean had been killed, and fell apart, knowing that he really shouldn't go back down that same road and make some sort of deal to bring Dean back from the dead. I think if Sam had had an inkling that Dean was still alive, he wouldn't have rested until he'd found a way to get Dean out.
Glad you liked the pressie - I've done knives, and M&M's, so I wanted something different this year - lol. And the little miniature car was just perfect. So much so, that I want one for myself...
Thanks for your eagle eye, as always.

Wonderful to have a new story from you, missed your accurate descriptions of how our boys should be, thank you. Please write one of your very good long stories soon, again many thanks.
Aww, thank you so much for that. I'm really thrilled you liked this, especially as I struggled so much with it.
Yes, I really need to get back to casefics, eh? Something I can get my teeth into. Like the one that's going up tonight - lol. It's only six chapters, but hey, at least it's not a one-shot...or a drabble...*pulls disgusted face*...
Hope you enjoy it - chapter one is being posted very soon, once I reply to my reviews.
And thank you again for lettting me know your thoughts.

Dammit all, you got me all choked up. But I loved it. I've been writing a fair amount of these Dean stories lately. I hate that the brothers are so distant. But it has been good for the muse.
Thanks so much, Ness.
Oh, I had a hard time with this one. The boys really didn't give me a lot to work with. I hate them being apart, too, even though the angst is lovely grist for our writers' mill.
Looking forward to their getting back on the same page soon....hopefully....
So glad you loved this one.

I absolutely love this! I love how you just get the boys even if canon doesn't :)
I'm still holding onto hope for the boys getting back together. They've always fought, they've always differed.....it's just that as each season has gone past, the intensity has ramped up, making their arguments a wee bit scary now....
But I firmly believe that even when they're angry at each other, the love is still there, and that's what will keep them repairing their bond.
