this story is amazing.I'm watching the episode of SPN season 2 where Dean tells Sam what their dad whispered to him before he died. the exchange between them is so full and ripe and tense, and so perfect for some contact. I've always felt like something is often missing between them during emotionally charged moments/scenes. reading this story has shed more light on that for me. there are so many times when I think they could have reached each other with physical contact -- and I'm not even talking about Wincest, I promise!but then I also think of how much more strength and skill in expression (or acting, as it were) it must take to express without touch.god i love this story.
