    Summary

    Sometimes Dean’s just gotta laugh when he thinks about how ridiculous his life is. It was easy when it came to death — with Sam looking terrified and angry in the passenger seat, Dean had laughed his goddamn ass off at the thought of Billie sending him back because he’s important. Somehow the incessant cycle of resurrection had become hilarious in that single moment. “Dead, not dead, who gives a crap, right, Sam?” he’d asked on the way home, and Sam had shook his head mutely, looking out the window.

    Now, though, it’s hard to laugh when he’s still going through it. A one-time injection is an easy thing to shake off; the daily grind of constant adrenaline-intense survival instinct that brings back the muscle memory of Purgatory, less so.

    Also, Dean’s in withdrawal.

    Summary

    But he couldnt do it, he was weak even when it came to give up. Cas did look like he was sleeping then, like he did 7 years ago in the same backseat, just a new tie and a new coat, Dean misses when Cas dying grace was his biggest problem, he took another look at him, he started to feel sick. He drove for another 8 hours.

    In the end he brings Cas to the bunker. He brings him home.

    Dean doesnt take death for an answer. Not when he still has so much left to say.

    Summary

    Cas calls it his checklist. After a bad breakup, he decided to draw up a list of things he wanted from a guy.

    If it were up to him, that list would’ve just been a list. He would've given up on love after Inias.

    But Dean wouldn't let him.

    Summary

    Twelve years ago, Dean Winchester underwent a life-changing surgery that completely turned his life around. He's stuck to the lifestyle changes, and he honestly never thought he'd get this far. He's got a job and lives on his own, he's healthy, and he looks pretty damn good, if he does say so himself. When he meets Castiel Novak, a chubby stoner in his mid-twenties, everything is perfect. But when Cas' lifestyle choices threaten everything Dean's worked so hard to achieve, he's faced with a difficult decision when he realizes that he still doesn't have as much control over himself as he thought he did.

    Summary

    Dean knew some lines shouldn't be crossed.
    There really shouldn't have been a reason why Dean was so angry over Castiel's sexual activities - yet he was.
    Dean shook with rage as he sulked on the floor of his cabin, imagining all the things that were going on in Castiel's cabin at the very moment. It was no secret that today was one of Castiel's scheduled orgies. Hell, the whole camp knew and any woman not currently in any sort of emotional attachment was probably there (and a few of the males in the camp as well).

    A shiver of rage ran down Dean's spine as he mulled that over for a bit. After Castiel's grace had left him, he had declared his interest in experimenting with sex. Shortly after, Castiel had announced that he had no preference when it came to gender. That revelation wasn't exactly a shocker, but it HAD made Dean quake in his boots. It was no doubt that he pined for the angel constantly. Even now, with his grace gone and being a burnout stoner, Castiel was hands down the most beautiful creature Dean had ever seen.

    Summary

    A sort of coda to 12x13, inspired by 12x14 and this post, and set between the two episodes. Dean’s pissed about Mary lying to them and putting lives in danger—for putting Cas’ life in danger. He’s angry and he needs some comfort and distraction. He also needs another bottle of scotch. Castiel provides.

    Summary

    "If it bleeds, you can kill it." That's what his brother had said. That's what he'd repeated over and over in his mind when a hunt had gone south and they were in over their heads. It was what he'd whispered to himself when the whole world turned on its head and he thought maybe this time it would be too much for them. It was the phrase he lived by.
