  • "Okay, I’m not sure where to start with this story. It’s set within the Every Broken Thing/Heart ‘Verse and it’s beautiful, angsty stuff. Sam rescues Dean, but a little too late. Amnesia fic that’s brilliant with its delivery, creating a guilty Sam, who wants his brother back, and a Dean who is trying to put the pieces together. Seriously, good stuff here. "Dean?" The quality, the tone of the voice changes as Dean's visitor notices Dean's eyes are open. He's gotten good at tone; you have to be to try and anticipate the appropriate reactions. This is relief, it's fear and he knows them from his own voice, not the doctors'."[1]
  • "This is part of a huge, huge, huge 'verse that poisontaster is continually adding to. This fic will make perfect sense without having read the rest of the 'verse, but it has a whole different meaning if you have. Either way, this story is just plain incredible. Her Sam and Dean are perfect, just like always, and the complexity of the psyche she built into Dean really blew me away. You can really tell that she put a lot of research into this story because there's a confidence to her writing that makes it easy to read and follow. Plus? There is absolutely nowhere in these entire 42,000+ words that the story drags or you get bored, which is an especially amazing accomplishment since a huge chunk of the fic is internalized. I just--so much love for this fic, even though it ripped me to pieces a bunch of times."[2]
