This is a gorgeous piece of work. :)
The fellow soldier emerging from the smoke is still my favorite part in this whole post, but I really liked your take on the ouiji board scene and what's going on between them there.
he'll readily share what is going on, or what happened in the past. He just won't share how that makes him feel. "I remember the fire"  instead of "I would wake up screaming for years,"
I hadn't thought of it like that. Such a good insight into Dean.
Respecting his brother's frame of mind, wanting to reach out but catching himself just on the outside of his brother's comfort zone.
Really like this idea, that Sam would sense this isn't a good moment to actually touch Dean, but he'll make a symbolic gesture that's like a touch. Or maybe he's subconsciously wanting to remind himself of his touch on the Impala, to highlight that now Dean's not broken anymore.
Footnote 9: yay! omg, I've thought of that moment in relation to Sam and Dean a few times. That's how they would be if the apocalypse was at hand. Not that I want an apocalypse on the show, but say they were surrounded and the lava rising...yeah. (Or maybe a moment like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, a movie which makes me think of SPN).
