    Summary

    After a sudden tragedy, Castiel Milton and Dean Winchester reflect back on their youth in the beachside town of Sileas, Oregon, and all the lessons they learned on the path that led them to each other. This is a Destiel love story, in seven parts.

    Summer 2008: Castiel Milton is very, very confused. The dream he never dared to entertain has somehow come true: his best friend, Dean Winchester, admitted to having feelings for him last summer, and is interested in pursuing a more romantically-inclined relationship. Problem is, Dean has hurt Castiel in the past, and as much as Castiel likes to think he has forgiven, he hasn't forgotten. It's hard enough to expose and move past old scars without Dean being so distractingly affectionate, and becomes even harder when those scars are prodded by the discovery of what Dean got up to while Castiel was away at school. To top it all off, Castiel's mother has finally retired, and is looking to spend more time with her youngest children than she has in years... The last summer before college was supposed to be a lot easier than this.

    Summary

    Clarke never thought her life would spiral out of control. She listened to her mother and went to school, she left behind the boy she was in love with like she asked. She thought she was doing fine, she had friends and a roommate who made her laugh. But then Lexa took her to a party, and Clarke can't connect the pieces of that night back together.

    She leaves school, not knowing where she's going. She ends up in a small town in Tennessee and crashes, quiet literally, back into the life of her ex-boyfriend. Boy she left behind, the one she was in love with. How can Clarke pick up the pieces of her life, when she's not sure who she is or where she wants to be?

    Summary

    Castiel Novak is used to change. He's used to being the new kid in school. So when he moves with his family to the small town of Rail Pass, he doesn't expect things to be much different than the last three towns.
    But then he meets Dean Winchester, an aggressive fellow student who sees Castiel as the shiny new toy he and his friends get to mess with. Castiel has had his fair share of bullies in the past, but nothing like this. He's never felt this way about a bully, or anyone for that matter, before. Maybe something's wrong with him, that he could feel so attracted to someone who makes his everyday life hell.
    But then again, he sees the way Dean looks at him sometimes. And there's a lot more to Dean Winchester than meets the eye.

    Summary

    The smile she gives James is breathtaking. He's glad he dropped his cigarette a while ago; otherwise he'd probably be choking on smoke right now. “I'm Natasha. Natasha Romanoff.”

    “Nice to meet you,” James says, and holds out his hand for her to shake. “I'm—”

    “Hey, Bucky! There you are!” he hears Steve say from the glass doors of the Greyhound station.

    James,” he says firmly as she shakes his hand. “I'm James.”

    The food service AU that's not, actually, a coffee shop AU.
    (But if you order coffee, they'll give it to you. It's on the menu! Honest!)

    This is it, Natasha thinks, I'll give them a scoop-- a scoop of their own throat. Sugar or wafer cone?

    Summary

    They were murdered, they were attacked and now they're dead. That's all Frank knows about his parents - gone before he'd even had chance to miss them, and it was fucking with his head.

    The police reckoned that moving away, to rural New Jersey with his grandparents would help him cope with the loss, but even Frank knew that they couldn't be more than wrong, because despite the dull sleepy atmosphere of the town, there was something unidentifiable yet impossibly unnerving about the place, and really, perhaps was safer in his parents home than he ever was here.

    And there's something physically wrong too - a figure that lurks in the smoke, fog, and shadows - a silhouette the deepest black he'd ever seen, the kind that brought an unsettling feeling to Frank's stomach, and really Frank's wasn't one to be overly twitchy about things like this, but from the moment he first met him, he could never shake the feeling that the figure was always following him.

    And perhaps, he was.

    Summary

    Cas Novak and Dean Winchester were two very different people, and, as cliche as it's going to sound, from two very different worlds:
    Where one lives in a run-down trailer park on the edge of town with his five other siblings and his heroin addict mother, the other lives your average suburban life, mom and dad and baby brother Sammy all in a nice house with a picket fence- or well, he did before his father up and left them for his pregnant mistress.
    When the two of them are brought together to work on a history project on an American social movement of their choice, Cas and Dean may just find that they aren't so different after all.
    (Mainly focusing on Castiel/Dean, but will have a decent amount of Gabriel/Sam and Charlie/Dorothy)
