Summary: John Winchester breaks into Sam’s Stanford apartment in the middle of the night with bad news. Dean is missing—hasn’t been in touch for days. Furious with his father for endangering Dean, Sam agrees to come along, but only to find his brother.

Once on the road, John and Sam’s rocky relationship gets even rockier, especially when Sam learns that John has been withholding information. But Sam has his own secrets, ones that include visions of Dean’s brutal death at the hands of a demon. Finding Dean will only be the beginning, as the Winchesters face up to the tension and heartache that broke them apart in the first place.

Author’s notes: This story originated as a prompt on [ profile] roque_clasique's birthday commentfic meme. Thanks to her for the idea and her encouragement to “go for it” when I told her I thought I could get a Big Bang out of it.

Enormous thanks for my beta readers, [ profile] callistosh65, [ profile] geminigrl11, and [ profile] ancastar. I would never have started this story, let alone finished it, without their encouragement and support. Any errors still remaining are mine alone.

An enormous thank you to my talented artist and new friend, [ profile] odysseaia who made this whole thing so much fun.

I'm loving it so far! It's taking me a while due to reading in bits and pieces through the work day, but I love what you're doing with Sam and John.

I kind of want this as a bumper sticker... it's such an all-purpose reason why anything and everything isn't done yet! :)

Thanks so much for the encouragement! I truly hope you enjoy the story!

Thank you again for the prompt! This was one of those rare writing experiences where writing the thing was a complete pleasure.

(Formatting it was something else, altogether!)

I hope you enjoy the story!

Just so you know, hon--you've lost comments on this post. S and I both posted here when it first went up this morning (I was the third poster after S and Embroiderama.). This isn't a big deal, but I think there may have been others after me (I've been keeping an eye on you and your post--no reason... ;-)).

All I wanted to say was a big fat CONGRATULATIONS! I'm so happy you got this puppy done. I know it's been stressful. But I'm thrilled for you and all the love you're going to get because of your amazing story.

I enjoyed this take on the story! It was nicely in character given the shifts and everyone's reactions were really natural to the changes you made. Thanks for the enjoyable read.

Thank you so much - I'm so glad you felt it stayed in character. I'm just so glad you enjoyed the story. :)

Love the story

I really liked this story. I like the fact that it shows how important Dean is to Sam, and how it explored Sam's relationship with his father. It's really well written.

On a somewhat related note, would you mind if I friended you?

And yes, please friend away! I hope you enjoy my stories. :)

is there any chance you would have a pdf of your fic?

my old laptop ate my folder with all the 2010 bigbang fics and I'd love to get yours again...

Unfortunately, I don't have a pdf (have no idea how to do one) but I do plan to put all my fics at A03 this summer. I will try to do this one sooner, rather than later. :)
