    Summary

    In the aftermath of Dean's final showdown with Metatron, Cas goes missing—though it's not so much a matter of "where" but "when." Desperate and on edge, Dean convinces a wary Sam to travel back to 1947 on a rescue mission, only to discover Bartholomew’s scheme to infiltrate the LAPD and the dark secrets of a forgotten society. To make matters worse, Dean has no recollection of recent events and struggles with lingering effects of the Mark. As he attempts to regain his memory, he fears the nightmares lurking at the back of his mind are ticking bombs, and Cas may be his only hope of keeping himself from losing his grip on reality completely.

    Or: In which Dean is an idiot and Cas has the patience of a saint.

    NOTE: Major character death is temporary and open to interpretation.

    Summary

    It is 1948, and Dean has returned from the war with memories that haunt him. He tends to his father’s lands though and does his best to live quietly. Cas Novak, a childhood friend and neighbor, has spent the last 15 years locked away in the Napa State Hospital. His return to his family home unleashes memories of the past for Dean and sends them both toward feelings that they do not understand, feelings that have consequences that they both understand all to well.

    This was written for the Destiel Ficlet Challenge. My prompts were bells and ice. I have incorporated them thematically. The length was limited to 10k and I used every blessed bit of it. I have split it into four chapters for readability. Enjoy.

    Summary

    After Haytham Kenway's partner was killed in action, Haytham invited his son to come join him as his assistant detective. Connor thus arrives in Chicago, the year being 1943. After his father neglects to investigate the killings caused by a gang run by the notorious Charles Lee, Connor, along with a young officer named Aveline de Grandpre, begin to investigate the killings. When he realizes that what the gang is after is a piece of Eden, him and Aveline must seek help from the more supernatural.

     

    This is loosely based off of a white card I saw in Cards Against Humanity which said: "A Native American Detective who travels into the spirit world to the spirit world to solve crimes." So, yeah, Juno, Jupiter, and Minerva will make an appearance. Along with those three, other character from the Assassin's Creed universe will make appearances. *cough* Mafia Charles Lee *cough* This is only with the Assassin's Creed 3 characters, except for Aveline de Grandpre. Possible Aveline/Connor romance.
