Oh. My. God. You guys have GOT to read this fic. It made me cry happy/sad tears and I do not tear up over fics. It flawlessly deals with the boys' retirement in a way that rings so true, picking up Season Eight canon (so if you're not caught up, you won't get all the little references but there's still a lot that hits hard in the heart. But it will spoil, just so's you know.)

I miss kettle_o_fish's writing like crazy. Girl, you're gifted. That's just all I can say. This is a such a treat. I'm stupid-flattered. I'm the lucky one.

Wow, with a rec like that, I know what I'll be doing this afternoon! *runs to read*

Oh, babe, you (in particular) will love it, I think. It's as much about Dean as it is about Sam, and SO BITTERSWEET. I just adore it.

Oh, I LOVED it -- it made me tear up and rage at the universe for not ever letting the guys have a legit "there'll be peace when you are done" ending, but I suppose just surviving it all is peace enough. Ah, Self, why so invested in two fictional characters? Why?

I KNOW, RIGHT? I never tear up over fics but this one hit me right in my tender places. Honest to God, I think we get invested because the characters evolved out of their stereotypes and hit on the basic, human things we all experience in ways that felt genuine. Lightning in a bottle, I'll tell ya.

Thank you! Read and left feedback - awesome story!

Wasn't it?? We know Happily Ever After will never happen for our boys, but THIS here? This could happen. Glad you dug it!

That was an awesome read! What a great companion piece to your MoL Sam!

I've received six submissions so far (reading in between working on a book cover) and I'm thrilled by the variety! I'm gonna link them all next week, when I get a chance. THIS ONE, though, hits every damned last one of my buttons. Like, whoa.

Thanks for the rec -- I ran over to read it, and it was MADE OF AWESOME. Now I need to read her other stuff, which is all for the good, because I needed to find a new author to keep me busy. You know, in that 4.5 minutes during the day when I have nothing to do. :)

Oh, man, kettle's writing is AMAZING. Be forewarned, though, it's often grim. She likes to tug at the ol' heartstrings, but it always delivers.
