Thank you so much to smalltrolven for writing this awesome story and for being so patient with me! RL made this a hard one for me to pull-off,and I couldn't have asked for more enthusiastic, understanding (and did I mention infinitely patient?) author to have been paired with. I have had a lot of fun and got to experiment with types of insert art that I normally don't have much opportunity, or inclination to work with. It has truly been a joy to be apart of this project!

Relevant Passage:“…He tries to hold back the tears that he can feel building up, that everything Sam ever had is right here in this one bag, which just seems so colossally unfair, and Sam’s not even here to bitch at him about going through it. He’s not ever going to be unless they can find the amulet and find God. He lets himself sink down into the pile of Sam-scented clothes and breathes it in as he cries, missing his brother, grieving the loss more now that he knows what they could have been to each other, desperately mourning the fact that he’d ever given up and thrown the damn amulet away in the first place. Finally the tears stop as he talks himself into trying, they haven’t looked everywhere.”
