So, here it is. The conclusion. It's a monster, and I still would have liked to have done more. It's been a joy to write. It's been a joy to illustrate. It's been a joy to hear your lovely thoughts. Thanks for sticking through my chapters with me.

Thoughts I had / Headcanons that I didn't fit in:
- I am a bad person
- Misha Collins really does have nice hands
- I wish I had more time to write Sam's missing months, his struggle to learn to shut out Lucifer (he still hasn't mastered it, but he's getting better), his failure to discover that Crowley's deal wasn't exactly what it seemed (I'm sorry but that guy is really good at what he does) and how much it was good for him to find some control for his life that was using 'good guy' methods, for once.
- A Rick-Roll joke related to the fact that Gabriel's Lightborn name is Rickon.
- Holy crap I am a bad person
- Shit, this is nearly twenty pages, I hope it's readable
- I really like that Castiel's key to strength is determination, and it's determination that comes from championing others
- I really wish I had the time and confidence to draw Shadow!Sam holding off the angel.
- Oh my God, that should be the last line.
- Holy crap, that can NOT be allowed to be the last line.

Thoughts, comments and critiques welcome and appreciated :)

Okay, first off, I wanted to say: congrats for finishing this.

Overall, this story was amazing. You managed to create one hellofa plot and left the story off with just enough for the readers to be able to come up with their own endings. I do, however, wish that some things could have been explored and expanded on.

Anyway, great job!

Thanks! Yeah, I would really have liked to explore some things more too, and written a lot more purgatory adventures for Cas and Dean as well as Sam's struggle to make it as far as he has by the end of the story. I just ran out of time to dally around much, so it all had to keep moving along pretty quickly. I kind of wanted to go into what Crowley's actual plan was too, but I just couldn't find a place to fit it in.

I'm glad you like the open ending. I decided it was much more interesting than the original outcome where Sam brings a spirit-Impala and they drive home it along a road between worlds that Ezra lays out for them. That one seemed a bit too tidy when I thought about it more, plus it'd mean abandoning the angels!

Were there any things in particular you thought needed expansion (for future reference?)

I'm sorry! I kind of wanted it to end with some ambiguity, partially because the show is totally not above that, and because I am sometimes too much of a douchebag to feel content with happy endings :P I think Gabriel at the very least will make it, though, he has kind of a knack for survival. :)
