    Summary

    When Ray had joined the Avengers, he’d been promised good pay, good vacation hours, and the best security in the entire world (which is funny, because HE'S the best security in the entire world. No one gets past the Brown Recluse, bitch). No one had said a goddamn word about babysitting the irradiated toddler who could smash helicopters, or warned him about said irradiated toddler’s more personable form. Ray was gonna sue.

    He really likes Ryan, he decides, once he's spent a few months as designated RR (It's funny, because Ryan Retriever and Ray and Ryan. Alliteration’s a riot). Not that he didn't like Ryan before, but it bears stating after the realization that Ryan’s the best friend he's had since he was six. He doesn't say that, because ew, emotions, and also because he's pretty sure Ryan knows, but it's a nice feeling.

    So this is how it goes. This is how they go. Ray brings Ryan back and throws him a pair of pants. They make their way back to everyone else, and, depending on what kind of day it's been, they talk about nothing, or they listen to their feet hit the ground. This is how Ray learns a score of amusing anecdotes, some fun facts about Ryan, some fun facts about shit he has no idea why Ryan knows, and some not so fun facts about Ryan. This is when Ray suggests they get BFF necklaces that read BE FRIE and ST ENDS. This is how Ray learns that Ryan’s probably responsible for .002 percent of the entire Diet Coke consumption in the United States. This is when they air their admittedly petty grievances about how damn social every single one of their friends are. This is when Ray eventually realizes he's in love with Ryan.

    Kuroo is amazing at a lot of things. Skilled and respected captain of a top volleyball team, straight A student, model son and upstanding teen citizen. There's just one gift he wasn't born with: The ability to woo Tsukishima with his words. Doesn't mean he won't try.

    “- and as my heart beats in tandem with your footsteps, I realize I will only ever follow after you, only watch you, for you are the one whom fate has dealt the lover’s hand. The hand that is my own.

    Kuroo looks up, beaming, “What’d you guys think? Good, right? I’m getting way better.”

    A chorus of groans and boos and ‘let us out, I have to go home’ resound and Tsukishima can’t quell the loud peel of laughter that erupts from him. Kuroo is fucking insane.

    A short, brown-haired kid who Tsukishima recognizes as the team’s libero, folds his arms. “Do you want the truth? Or should we lie to you?”

    Kuroo frowns. “Lie to me.”

    The kid flashes a thumbs up. “Excellent. Brilliant worded magic that will transcend time.”

    “Okay, truth.”

    A voice, who Tsukishima recognizes as Kenma’s, cuts in. “It sounds like something a serial killer would leave at a crime scene for the police to find.”

    It takes a really, really long time to figure out that—why didn’t he see it before—there must be something between Zoro and Sanji. There had to be; two men don’t go at each other like that, so insistently, so consistently, without some sort of explanation beyond “he pisses me off” and Usopp can believe that they are both just the right degree of emotionally messed-up to think that trying to kill each other on a daily basis constituted an acceptable display of—of what? Usopp blanches, can’t seem to, or won’t, find the word. He watches them slice and kick at each other, and tries to figure out how something like that could seem so natural.

    They argue, all the time, growling in each other’s faces, standing toe to toe. They face each other a lot, Zoro and Sanji, and not just when they fight, Usopp suspects with a feeling that he can describe as sinking, but doesn’t know why. And when Usopp wakes up in the middle of the night and looks around the room, he finds Zoro’s hammock empty too even though it’s Sanji’s watch.

    Summary

    Dear Castiel, 

    Hello – it’s Castiel. This must all seem very confusing, and I’m sorry for that. Dean says to tell you that this isn’t some kind of ‘time-travel stunt’, although I’m sure that won’t be your first thought. I know it wasn’t mine. I’ve told Dean to leave now, as this is my notebook and I want everything in it to come from me – or rather, from you. I know you think it's the fifteenth of January, 2010, but it isn't. At the time of my writing this, the date is the fourth of October, 2013. Dean Winchester is your boyfriend of a year and a half, and you no longer work at the library, and in early 2010 you were hit by a car and hospitalised. I’m sorry.

    a.k.a the 50 First Dates Dean/Cas AU where Castiel wakes up on a day just like any other, except that three years have passed without his knowing, and Dean Winchester is in the kitchen wanting to marry him.

    “I recognise you,” Castiel says, and he plucks at Dean's collar with finger and thumb.

    Dean exhales, long and slow. “We met before the accident.”

    “No.” Castiel knows that Dean is technically correct, but that isn't what he's saying. He repeats himself: “No.” He skims his hand down along the line of white buttons, tucks the tip of his finger under the crease between button and button-hole. He smoothes the front of Dean's shirt. “Not your appearance, or the simple fact of who you were before I was hit. I recognise you. You made me pancakes, and you smiled at me, and I--”

    Castiel can't finish the sentence. He doesn't know how to say what he means – that his stomach felt as though it were doing things that were reserved for works of fiction, that he found himself smiling at Dean and couldn't stop for anything, that Dean touched the corner of Castiel's mouth with his thumb and Castiel forgot to keep breathing. He doesn't say anything. He runs his hands down Dean's sides, his fingers light over the cotton. His hands are shaky.

    “You what?” Dean asks, and his voice is a little hoarse.

    “When I woke up this morning and I saw you making breakfast, I knew you,” Castiel says quietly. His hands come to stop on Dean's hips. “I didn't know your middle name, or what food you don't like, or whether you snore, but I saw you in your bare feet cooking breakfast and I knew you. Bodily, I knew you.”

    No matter how many times Chopper told Sanji that smoking was not only bad for him, it was bad for the patient, Sanji would only nod and continue smoking anyway. Thick, gray smog hung in the air, in spite of the galley portholes and door being open. Chopper would have transformed to Heavy Point and toss Sanji out if he hadn't felt sorry for him. It had nothing to do with Sanji telling him that he was a good doctor, because Chopper hated that kind of complimenting, that asshole (wiggle-clap-clap).

    Michael is not keeping track of things he learns about Gavin Free over the next few days, because that is not his job. If he were to make such a list, however, it would read something like this:

    1. regularly falls asleep in patches of sun

    2. refuses to keep track of the names of television characters

    3. constantly starts to make tea but then forgets, letting the kettle boil dry

    4. bad at any movement more complicated than walking, and also walking

    5. weird balls

    6. useless cook, but useful cooking assistant

    7. surprisingly good at Peggle

    8. actually pretty smart about camera stuff, despite being dumb about everything else

    9. makes up ridiculous words and claims they are British slang, clearly lying

    10. terrified of any and all women, including Barbara

    Summary

    This is the day that marked the Holy and Blessed Union of Dean Winchester and Jo Harvelle.

    The merging of prominent bloodlines is always a grand occurrence, but breeding pedigree hunter families like Winchester and Harvelle is something to be rejoiced. It is also something to be meticulously planned, which thankfully the Host is very good at.

    Or, the romantic comedy where Dean Winchester and Jo Harvelle are destined to get married, Castiel is given the task of playing matchmaker and fails terribly, the entire Heavenly Host becomes a sitcom audience, God warns against male pregnancy, and Jimmy Novak is incredibly unimpressed with angels in general.

    Finally, Dean breaks the silence. “Look, Cas, about last time… I shouldn’t have laid it on you like that.”

    TELL HIM TO LAY SOMETHING ELSE ON YOU, Hester says in amusement. Castiel inwardly balks.

    SISTER!

    WELL I’M SORRY BUT IF HE WERE ANYMORE OBVIOUSLY IN LOVE WITH YOU IT WOULD BE NAUSEATING.

    HESTER, THIS IS COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE TO THE INTENT OF CASTIEL’S MISSION, Zachariah snaps. ALSO IT IS DISGUSTING.

    YOU’RE DISGUSTING, Inias grumbles. He and Hester mesh their Grace together in a way that reminds Castiel of a high five. Zachariah trembles with rage.

    “I'm sorry.” Jeremy says with sincerity, clipping on the wiring with as much precision as he could, “It must be hard.”

    “You know your anatomy and physiology, correct?” Castiel Novak smiles. “Do you know how many things must happen in order for the human body to thrive?”

    Jeremy looks at him questioningly as he boots up the electrocardiogram.

    “Millions. One cell splits into two, and then into three, and then they split a thousand different times, and then a thousand more, on and on and on. All these minuscule things, somehow, know within themselves that they have to coalesce and differentiate at the same time. They form billions of tissues and organs and systems of different kinds and then,” Castiel Novak motions towards Jeremy, “There's you.”

    The electrocardiogram is left untouched.

    “You don't feel it now, but everything in your entire being has to function in a perfect routine made up of billions and billions of little ticking parts—from the surface of your skin, down to the little protein structures of your minuscule cells—in order for you to be breathing oxygen into our lungs, right here, right now. Millions of motions that must be perfectly executed beneath your skin, and you're not even aware it's happening.”

    “So, some one-half of my heart made a little mistake.” Castiel Novak says lightly, “One measly wrong out of a million rights.”

    Castiel Novak reaches out for the start button and starts the machine up himself.

    “I don't think that is something worth being sorry for.”

    Castiel stares at him for a long, long time.

    “I’m sorry,” Dean says.

    “What’s the godfather?” Castiel asks, and Dean can’t deal with this, at all, let alone on such a tiny amount of sleep, so he grabs Castiel by the arm and drags him towards the door.

    Summary

    Sam and Dean are working a case in Wyoming, but are distracted by news of a dangerous angel called "Castiel" who they can't remember ever having heard of before. The name seems a little bit familiar, but neither of the boys is sure why.

    Based off of mid-season 9 (before mark of Cain, before the angel army); takes place several months later, in September 2014. Case fic wrapped in a big ol' amnesia mystery. NO SLASH; the idea is that this is something they could do on the actual show, like a 3-4 episode arc with some mini cases and a cool story running through it all. GETS VERY EMOTIONAL with super strong friendship/family themes, lotsa hurt/comfort, about three metric tons of Cas angst, feels galore, plus monsters and M&M's.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Castiel appeared to be a human male of slightly above average height and thoroughly above average good looks. Appeared is a key word in that sentence, because in actuality Castiel Novak (which is a brutal Humanization of an otherwise mechanically unpronounceable surname) was an alien from a non-corporeal race of beings known as Seraphs (no-relation to the seraphs of Earth’s Judeo-Christian mythologies. Even with all the diversity of language in the Universe, there are bound to be a few homonyms.) Outside the boundaries of his chosen bodily form, Castiel resembled what a particularly close friend of his once called “the most kick-ass laser light show I have ever witnessed.”

    Castiel’s humanoid manifestation was an exact carbon copy of one Jimmy Novak (no relation), an AM radio ad salesmen from Illinois. Castiel had replicated his genetic code during his first visit to Earth, selecting him based upon his generally well-groomed appearance, which promised him general anonymity with the slightly eased passage through life enjoyed by those just on the right side of good-looking. Jimmy had no idea that Castiel was borrowing his face, so to speak, and Castiel in his more secret moments had to admit that perhaps one good thing that had come of the Earth being destroyed was that Castiel no longer had to suffer the minor anxiety that accompanied the idea running into the man.

    Clint doesn't seem to understand the importance of having raisin-free pie, though. "Wait," he repeats, "You're making apple pie? In addition to all the cookies?"

    Darcy taps the back of his head lightly. "Geez, Clint, keep up. I've never known you to be slow on the uptake."

    Dad cocks his head and narrows his eyes. "You like my cookies?"

    "I do indeed, sir," Clint says fervently. Darcy rolls her eyes at him.

    "Be straight with me, Clint. Are you dating my daughter for the cookies?"

    "Sir, if it were legal in the state of Maryland, I would marry you for the cookies."

    "That could be arranged," Mom says, laughing.

    "But seriously, I like your daughter a lot. Life is a lot more fun with her around."

    Dad smiles. "Good. I have to say, when Darcy said she was dating you--" He pauses and looks like he's trying to find the right words. "You're a little older than the boys she's dated in the past, and the whole SHIELD thing is kind of difficult to wrap my head around. But I like you, Clint. If you come back next Christmas, maybe I'll share some of the recipes with you."

    Clint looks honestly pleased by that, and as Darcy smiles happily at him, she realizes that she is completely and utterly fucked.
