Oh gosh. This is the most beautiful, most heart-wrenching fic for S4 that I have read. Wow. I'm speechless.

I'm glad you found your way here! Writing this story was how I finally processed the end of season three and prepared for the start of season four ...

Bardic- I can't believe that I missed this the first time around! it was probably in my dark time of studying and my LJ haitus ;)

This is brilliant! I just felt Sam's pain the whole time and you really made me sob!

Thank you! This was my attempt to process what happened at the end of season three, in order to prepare for season four. I'm just glad I finished it and got it up before the season started ... :)

Couldn't resist linking Keep Fighting to the very end of this one ...

I know! I was reading Keep Fighting again and came across a comment which mentioned Last Rites and I just had to go and read it...

I just discovered this today. The devastation Sam feels is so tangible in your writing, I am sobbing helplessly.

If I had encountered this at the end of season three I would have been a basket case. Your description of preparing the body was so real, I could see every movement you described.

I'm glad you found this! I couldn't have written it at the end of season three; I had to wait until just before the beginning of season four. Writing this - processing my own grief over Dean's death and Sam's ultimate loss - was how I prepared for Lazarus Rising.

The details I wound up getting right were the things that flabbergasted me! Seeing Dean dig himself out of his grave ran shivers down my spine ...

Thank you for the praise. *glows*
