Their inability to get along causes problems for Bobby so he orders them to get help or get gone.

Author’s Notes: I have to thank echo_grace_07 for her tireless beta work. People, you have no idea how much of a mess this was before she got to it. She deserves a medal or something. Thank you so much! Also, I want to thank counteragent  for being wonderful to work with as an artist and her suggestions after reading my story much improved it as well. Thanks! You’re both wonderful people and it’s been an honor to work with you.

Thanks to morganoconner  for being an awesome cheerleader. I couldn’t have done it without your support.

A note about the therapy provided in this story. I’m not saying the therapy provided in this story is ethical, or appropriate. I decided to view it through the window of the show assuming that if the boys were ever willing to go to therapy they would do it with someone in an office behind a liquor store rather than a professional building. It’s meant to be viewed through the shows scope of “doctors” and “therapists.” I certainly don’t mean to offend anyone or make any political statements. Those of you who know me, know that’s not my style. Thank you all for reading.

Intriguing!! I will return when I have read some of the others that have been piling up in my inbox! Some kind person may have done a PDF version by then, you never know...

In the meantime, I love your peacocks!

So, RL was time-consuming and I didn't get to comment on this in an appropriately timely fashion, but I just wanted you to know how much I loved it! The way you write the boys together is just fantastic and so true to them. Congratulations, bb, it's so good! Thank you for sharing this with us!

You made me cry...several times...big fat tears! But, I must say, this was masterfully done.

As someone who's been in therapy for several years, I can say you've really done your homework. These are exactly the revelations that come up when working with a good counselor. The revelations the boys had felt very real and organic to the work and I loved how they were helped to reassess their childhood beliefs and make adult decisions about who they wanted to be. The building trust in family not to betray you when you divulge your feelings was something very true to what I've found in my own life.

The new spn_littlebro community is requesting psychological hurt/comfort right now, and I am so gonna rec this story...that is, if no one's beaten me to it.

I'm sorry about the tears!

I'm so grateful this rang true to you. I wanted to give it a realistic feel even though clearly the circumstances are often out of the realm of possibility. I'm glad it felt like "Good" therapy to you. Having a therapist that's bad at their job is a scary thing indeed.

Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much. I had to stop watching the show. The tension and never ending downward spiral hurts too much. It's making writing hard right now as I have some personal stuff going on. I appreciate the feedback so much.
