    Summary

    “I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed, but there are some people that just seem to suck the joy out of the world around them.” Dean chuckles darkly in understanding. “My parents were like that.”

    Dean Winchester doesn’t suspect his new friend Castiel’s sincerity. Castiel Novak is a Pranat. One wrong touch, and anyone from his species can digest the joy from the world around them. Unwilling to doom any one town to that fate, Castiel overcomes his ‘disability’ by driving an eighteen wheeler between the hubs of a large shipping company and living on the joy from the packages in his care. A few smiles here, a hearty laugh there, but at least he can believe no one is too deeply affected.

    When a terrible snowstorm forces him to pull into an empty parking lot, a kindhearted cook brings him inside the empty diner for some coffee and company. Over several visits together, they begin to share friendship, and maybe something more. But as much as he craves it, Castiel can never allow himself to touch Dean Winchester. Not if he wants his new friend to lead a happy life.

    Summary

    For two weeks, Dean’s wrists have itched, along with various other parts of his body. Namely, two eerily similar spots behind his ears and just behind his ankles, and a particularly strange spot along his spine. What he finds with Sam and Castiel's assistance, though, defies every belief he ever had about himself, and about Angels—by some miracle, he has Grace, and with Grace comes wings in all forms.

    And with wings, comes the realization he wasn't ready to ever admit—that he's in love with Castiel, and has been for longer than he can remember.

    Summary

    [Update: 1 Mar 2016: Rewritten/Remastered! Please reread if you've already read it because this is the final version I've been dying to turn this into. This is how I wanted this story to be, and how I imagined it, and I changed enough for it to be a new experience. Thanks!]

    Dean and Castiel's relationship has evolved over time- from strangers to roommates, roommates to friends, friends to best friends. The most troublesome evolution came to pass when they went from being best friends to "We're just friends."

    Summary

    Long haul trucking can be a lonely business. Sure, Dean can chat up other drivers on the CB, and when Sam’s not in class or drowning in homework he’ll let Dean talk his ear off on the phone. But it’s still hours and hours of staring at the road and scanning the radio dial for local stations because he’s too lazy to upgrade the truck to satellite radio. And then a flirty waiter in a 24 hour truck stop restaurant sits down with him to chat while he eats his dinner, and suddenly his life no longer feels quite so empty.

    Photography doesn’t pay much, and insomnia is a bastard. Which is why Castiel accepts his cousin's offer of employment at the truck stop restaurant. The graveyard shift is perfect for his fucked up sleep schedule, and Gabriel doesn’t mind if he sneaks a free meal now and then. Besides, all the most interesting people come into the restaurant in the middle of the night. Including the gorgeous man with the sad green eyes that makes Castiel want to pull out all the stops to make him smile.
