Two years after Sam Winchester goes to Hell, with the world once again hanging in balance and Castiel hating himself for the decisions he’s been forced into making, Dean Winchester agrees to loan out his soul to power up one of Heaven’s weapons. It’s an alright plan except for the fact that, with Dean’s soul out of the picture – and with Castiel exhausted from the war, and overwhelmed by the pressure of never once letting himself be anything but the perfect little solider – Dean and Castiel seem to be heading towards something that Castiel’s not sure either of them can come back from.

Also, the title comes from ‘Closer’ by Nine Inch Nails, and awesome artwork for this story can be found here: http://rednarcissism.livejournal.com/1933.html).
