    Summary

    Dean Winchester is perfectly happy with his loner lifestyle, drifting from town to town, hustling and picking up odd jobs. At least that’s what he tells himself. Keeping careful tabs on his successful and settled younger brother Sammy from a safe distance. Far enough away that he can do him and his growing family unit no harm.

    Fate, of course, throws a gorgeous dark-haired man running from his own family into his path and Dean, no stranger to his own troubles, finds himself sucked into a high powered game of cat and mouse, with the deadliest stakes.

    Summary

    After a long and tense separation, Dean and Cas must work a case together, where married couples are dying mysterious deaths. But, there’s a catch - the only way to infiltrate the gated community and earn the neighbors’ trust in their investigation is by pretending to be married. Sam naturally puts Dean and newly-human-Cas up to the task; but with their recent falling-out, a fake relationship seems impossible.

    Dean slowly finds that he loves being in a relationship with Cas, fake or not, and Cas finds his loneliness retreating, even though the harsh reality is right around the corner. As Dean and Cas navigate this fake, but all too real, relationship, can they find the monster that is on a mysteriously motivated killing spree before it’s too late?

    Summary

    “Do you remember when we said goodbye?” Castiel asks suddenly, pulled from the memory, and Dean’s eyebrows raise in surprise.
    Even in the dark, the alpha can spot a flush of red creeping along Dean’s neck. This was not the sort of thing people discussed so openly, but Castiel had been waiting twelve years to hear this. To finally know.
    “Jesus, Cas,” Dean says, then adds sarcastically, “I forgot how subtle you were.”
    Castiel exhales, the windy chill making him feel solemn. “Dean—”
    “Of course I remember,” the omega interrupts quietly, longingly, with reverence. “Kinda hard to forget a kiss like that, Cas.”

    The Winchesters belong to an ancient wolf pack nestled in the woods, still recovering from the carnage of war. When Dean’s childhood best friend returns after twelve years away, the omega begins to wonder if there’s more than friendship between them.

    Castiel is an alpha and last living heir of the packmaster. After spending his entire adult life away from the pack, he‘s unprepared for the chain of events propelled forward when he returns home to No Man’s Land.

    Summary

    Twenty-three years of head-over-heels, devastating devotion and love, love, love for the man with bright eyes and dark hair. Fourteen years of friends, best friends, of always together. One moment of rejection.

    Nine years of apart. Nine years of heartbreak, nine years of continents away, of not speaking, of no acknowledgement, no interaction, no closure, no peace. No happiness. Nine years of Dean’s life entering motions, going through them, constant, cold and mechanic, like clockwork. Nine years of alone.

    God. Nine years. A lot has changed. And yet Dean still loves Cas just the same. Even if his heart hurts all kinds of different.

     

    On the day of Jimmy Novak's funeral, Dean sees Cas for the first time in nine years. He adored Castiel the moment he met him, at only four years old. But after fourteen years of friendship destroyed by one moment of heartbreak, and after nine years of silence, Dean is convinced Cas will want nothing to do with him. And it's killing him.

    Summary

    300 years after the Apocalypse, North America is a horrific parody of a bygone era; regressed technologically and near-constantly at war. The survivors are terrorized by their oppressors: Sam and Dean Winchester. Trapped as Lucifer's Generals on Earth since the final seal broke, they remember nothing of who they were or what brought them here.

    Before the Light Bringer returns to lead his final charge, the long-forgotten prophet Chuck Shurley starts a ripple effect that he hopes will change everything—by throwing one particular angel behind enemy lines.

    Summary

    Dean’s favourite coffee shop, The Graveyard Shift, is only open after the sun goes down. Which is perfect for him, because that’s exactly when he craves coffee the most while doing the overnight at the fire hall. The coffee shop’s owner is pretty perfect too, but it’s kind of a bummer that Dean never gets to see Cas during the day. In a world where the supernatural live more or less in peace with the rest of humanity, it’s a little impolite to ask Cas just what he really is - or what his dark past entails.

    Summary

    From Heaven to Hell, it's assumed that Castiel is in a relationship with the Winchesters. Everybody knows but Sam and Dean. That doesn't stop the other angels from making an example of Cas for them to find.

    Summary

    Funny how you can live in a neighborhood and not know your neighbors, the people who share the same roads, airspace, and hornet problems, the people you see every day. Castiel’s neighbors don’t really know him and haven’t tried to, which is just how he needs it to be to stay safe and alive. His new neighbor, though, throws a wrench into his foolproof plan — Dean Winchester, eternally cheerful, trusting, and handsome, wants to know him, wants to be close to him, wants to be more with him. Castiel is afraid… but when he’s with him, he feels safe and alive in a whole new way that seems more important and worthy than simply existing. But for Dean to really know him, he has to know Castiel’s past. Can Castiel open himself up? Will Dean stay once he knows?

    Summary

    “They say you’re lucky if you find a love that lasts a lifetime. I’ll be lucky if I find it at all. True love doesn’t exist. Not in my experience.” - Dean Winchester

    “They say bad times never last. There’s always a calm after the storm. I’ve yet to reach the calm. I’m starting to think it got lost on the way.” - Castiel Novak

    Then...

    Everything you thought you knew for certain...changes.

    Cas is back in Lawrence after years of absence, stirring up memories in Dean that had been long ago stolen by a disastrous accident. Dean doesn’t remember anything about Cas. But Cas will never forget what happened. What Dean did to him, and he hates him for it.

    But when Dean starts to remember, he starts falling apart, and Cas can’t help but see the man through his perception of him. The man he forced himself to forget. The man he loved.

    Can their love break through the boundaries of time and tragedy? Or will their demons swallow them alive?

    Will the friction light a spark? Or will it smoke out?

    Maybe it’ll all go up in flames.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, the Northern Continent was at peace, angels and humans living side by side until the human King Winchester of Torrin waged war against the angels in an attempt to wipe them out - an attempt that almost succeeded. However, to this day some angels still remain in hiding and with an unpredictable turn of events one of them finds himself as the personal guard to King Winchester’s firstborn son, Prince Dean. With a strange ability no angel has had before - to hide his own wings - no one knows that they have just let their greatest enemy into the heart of their kingdom.

    Alone and struggling to deal with being surrounded by the ones who slaughtered his people, Castiel comes head to head with the Crown Prince. But what he finds within the man is not what he expected and they soon become each other’s only comfort.

    Will Dean be the strength Castiel needs to pull through or will he be the weakness that will tear everything to pieces?

    Summary

    The first thing you needed to know was that Dean was a fire elemental, which basically meant he was able to call, you know, fire. Sounded pretty cool on the surface, except his powers’d manifested earlier than most. Problem with that was, preschoolers weren’t really able to control their feelings, and unfortunately elements were linked to emotions. To say that Dean was forced to learn control would’ve been an understatement. He structured his whole world to maintain it.

    The second factor of importance was that on your 18th birthday you woke up with your soulmate’s name lit up behind your closed eyelids. A flash of brilliant red cursive and then it was gone. The why didn’t really matter much, the results spoke for themselves: The morning of Dean's eighteenth birthday he came to with startling clarity as the name Castiel Novak blazed in handwritten script inside his eyelids. Everyone in school knew Cas Novak. Typical bad boy incubus. Way more than Dean could handle, not that it mattered. Because even if Cas wanted him, which he doubted, Dean was too dangerous to let himself get close to anyone.

    Heaven's great leader of armies prides himself on his self-control, his steadfast courage under pressure. But when the djinni's dream is everything he's ever hoped for...

    Summary

    One morning, Castiel wakes up suddenly very lady-shaped, and Team Free Will discover that a nephilim grows inside him. Sam has no idea how this could have happened considering Cas was supposed to be human, and Dean seems uninterested in finding out how or why their friend is pregnant and female - but he seems goddamn excited. Castiel retreats into himself, seemingly more depressed than usual.

    Sam is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, though the others seem reluctant to discover the origin of the nephilim. Could the answer be right under his nose?

    Summary

    It's been months since Michael unexpectedly let Dean go, but he's still dealing with the mental and physical repercussions, some of which have turned out to be permanent. He’s had to adjust how to deal with hunts and that he likely won’t ever be at 100% again. On the upside, he and Cas are close now in a way that he’d never dared hope for, have made it clear how they feel for each other. Dean's greedy for every bit of affection they share, helplessly wanting more but unsure if Cas wants the same. Dean’s family got him back and he's got them, but they’re all dealing with their own respective issues and hang-ups, and when they - Cas, Dean, Sam, Eileen, and Jack - embark on a case of missing homeless people in San Diego, it all comes bubbling to the surface.

    This case fic follows Dean and Cas as they develop their relationship and establish intimacy, and while there's angst, the story is focused on healing and closeness, and there's a happy ending.

    Summary

    Sam and Dean Winchester grew up in Paradise 342, some two hundred years after the Apocalypse ripped the world apart. Now that was a messy business, humans dying left, right and center - but then Evil was defeated, and earth became a promised land, as was foretold in Revelations.

    Now humans dwell peaceably in the eternal sunshine of a world unchanged since 1836. God lives among them in the form of a Machine managing all their needs, from their marriages to their daily meals, while their angel overseers keep the humans safe and content. The system is perfect. The angels all say so.

    Dean and his friends in the human resistance beg to differ. The angels, particularly that new Seraph who just blew into town, can take their ‘perfect’ Paradise and suck it.

    Summary

    Normally Dean wouldn't get out of bed for a run-of-the-mill kidnapping, even without the hangover, but when Sam can't even write out the missing kid's name, he has to admit something's up.

    Helping Sam, Patience, and Claire figure out who (or what) erased all traces of the kid is as good a distraction as any to get over Cas bailing from an abortive love confession. But when finding answers comes at a terrible physical price, the team is left with no choice but to call in any help they can get.

    Like it or not, Dean and Cas have some uncomfortable truths to confront, and when worst comes to worst they'll discover what truly matters in the end.
