    Summary

    Destiel AU. Ready for a creepy story? Castiel and his brother inherit an old mansion. The grounds look spectacular, but inside, it’s down right frightening. There’re plumbing problems, broken windows, and years of disuse. They need help. Cas calls a college buddy, Sam. Sam's website- Winchester Family Business. Saving Places, Restoring Things- it's their motto. Sounds like a perfect match. But none of them are prepared for the history within the walls of Kripke Manor. There is more than plumbing wrong with the estate. There’s a ballroom with a stack of old cots in the corner, a tricycle in the hallway that won’t go away, and a man with a devilish grin turning up in Cas’ pictures.

    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

    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

    Dean's a good guy. Sometimes it gets him into trouble. Sometimes it gets him into a lot of trouble.

    When a little mistake sends Dean, Benny and Charlie off course it shouldn't be a big deal. But when Benny pleads for something his friends can't refuse they wind up where they aren't supposed to be. Splashing and playing on the coast of Angel Island without permission. What could possibly go wrong.

    Of course its not enough for Dean to take a risk for a friend. He has to put a stranger's wellbeing in front of his own. What can it hurt? Clearly the stranger is at risk of greater consequences than Dean.

    But Dean underestimates the consequences of such a small act and a trip that should have ended with his two best friends sunning on the beach during the day and drinking far too much at night somehow finds its end with Dean's friends fleeing and Dean finding himself the brand new slave of the mysterious boat owning angel Castiel.

    (Note: Tags are evolving with this fic. There Will be stuff that is Dub Con through situation but it does come at Dean's own choice. At this point I don't intend for there to be any Non Con but keep an eye on the tags in case that changes)

    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

    He’s still not entirely sure how he ended up here, naked and with spread legs, on expensive cushions, in the king’s castle. He remembers waking up to loud voices only a few hours ago, and then two armed guards barged into his room, dragged him out of his bed and towards their horses.

    He remembers his father’s neutral face as he held Dean’s screaming brother Sammy back from running after the guards, not even meeting Dean’s eyes as the men tied his hands behind his back, heaved him onto a horse’s back, and took him with them without any explanation whatsoever.

    Now he's here, and he has no idea what will happen to him.

    Summary

    Castiel doesn’t do one-night stands. Once he hit forty, he figured his time was up, his life had pretty much come to a halt, and there was nobody out there for him. He lives in a cute little village, riding his bicycle between his vet clinic and his cottage; that’s his world, and he’s given up on expanding it. But in one last, desperate attempt to find someone, he contacts Rowena, the local witch, and asks her to summon his soulmate. Rowena brings a storm. The storm washes up a trio of ducklings, huddled for shelter inside the rainboots of the new-to-town kindergarten teacher (and retired motorcycle daredevil), Dean Winchester. Ducklings in hand, Dean seeks out Castiel’s veterinary expertise. Somehow, in a flustered, spontaneous burst of attraction, they spend the night together. And just like that, Castiel’s life starts again. With every passing week they become better friends, sharing deeper intimacies, caring for their duck babies as well as each other. But staying together requires taking risks which neither of them planned for. Dean’s risk puts him in extreme physical jeopardy. And Cas? He has to overcome fifteen years of emotional hurt, just to follow where Dean leads.

    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

    Castiel is a grim reaper – and a very experienced one at that. He has negotiated thousands of deals to keep the balance of souls, acquiring years of life energy from mortals who have too many years in their life span, and has passed it onto those who have less. But even Castiel isn’t prepared when he accidentally convinces a mortal called Dean Winchester to give him his soul, and with it, a complete control of his life.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester doesn’t answer to anybody about anything. Not about his ever changing hair color or tattoos, not his music, and definitely not about all the fucks he definitely doesn’t give. Of course, then he meets pretentious, skinny jean wearing, ugly sweater buying Castiel Edlund who’s hardest lot in life is probably alphabetizing inventory at his uncle’s record store, and suddenly Dean has to answer for everything.

    Castiel, on the other hand, had long since accepted his fate as an anti-social, directionless, and misunderstood soul, with his cat, Meg, and a bottle of whiskey being the only company he needed. But then fate threw him Dean, the abrasive, infuriating punk who wears guyliner, and walks around like the chip on his shoulder is something to be proud of, and Castiel’s carefully constructed life was turned ass over teakettle.

    After a heated exchange upon first meeting, a mutual loathing afterwards, and the glaring opposites in their lives, neither of them sees the point of mixing oil and water. Which would be all good and well, except neither of them seems to be able to stay away from the other.

    Summary

    Castiel thinks he's the last of his kind and doomed to live a life alone. He's hiding in plain sight, as a human soldier in Angels Outfit, fighting alongside other companies - including Lord Winchesters renowned cavalry, the Silver Hooves - when his soul mark unbelievably flares to life.

    Either he's not the only Dragon to survive the war, or he's bonded with a human. Before he can figure out which of his fellow soldiers it could be, he's sent across into enemy territory on a rescue mission.

    Lord Winchester's eldest has been captured and last rumored to be in Alastair's hands. Castiel can't say no, but the clock is ticking and if he doesn't find his soul mate, he will die.

    Summary

    They didn't have much, if anything, in common. It's 1998 and Dean Winchester just started junior year at probably his twentieth school. He'd like to think of himself as the outsider; but, to the nerdy sophomore Castiel Novak, he's just another of the popular kids. That is, until he isn't. What he truly IS, remains unclear to Castiel as the two pave the way to an unlikely friendship. Dean's only hiding one important detail: he's already fallen head over heels for his sweet angel, Cas. Things aren't as easy as they seem, though. Dean has no idea of the not-so-dusty skeletons hiding in his angel's closet. Meanwhile, Castiel is in the dark about the things that go bump in the night and the world that Dean has always been part of. With so much to hide, is there hope of a foundation of love from something that was doomed from the beginning?
