    Summary

    Engineer-in-training Dean Winchester just wants to work on cars. Astronomer Castiel Novak spends his time holed up in the school’s observatory looking at the stars and trying to piece together his dissertation. They’ve never had any reason to cross paths.

    Not until they get roped into participating in the college theatre group, anyway.

    When Lisa invites Dean to join her at the mass meeting, he can’t say no to a pretty face. But the joke is on Dean when he accidentally lands the male lead and has to come to terms with memorizing lines and trying not to make a fool of himself on stage. Moreover, despite his best attempts to stay interested in Lisa, there’s no denying the strange gravitational pull he feels around Castiel.

    Castiel is just here to prove to Charlie that he’s capable of doing something besides research; it should be easy, except he finds himself becoming interested in Dean in a way he really did not expect.

    Dean is trying to navigate being way outside his skill set; Castiel just wants to hold onto his scholarship without pissing off the religious organization that gave it to him. It’s going to be a long semester, especially if Dean keeps forgetting his goddamn lines. The show must go on!

    Summary

    Cas hugs his pillow, and he’s mostly asleep when a memory works its way in. His father watching Fox news, a fearmongering piece about ifrits in healthcare. His father’s voice, saying, Blood is how they take your wishes.

    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?

    Summary

    Ever since his wife Lisa died, Dean Winchester has been willing to do anything for his son Ben. When Ben decided he wanted to adopt a halfling, Dean said yes without hesitation - provided they did so the right way, by giving whichever half-human they decided to bring home the respect and dignity it deserved. Half-octopi Castiel isn't exactly what they were looking for in a pet, but, then, they aren't exactly what Castiel was expecting for owners, either.

    Summary

    -

    “Please, Dean!! Please!”

    “Are you kidding me?”

    Jo's eyes are suddenly very big and wide and a serious competition for Sam's puppy dog look. “It's just for a weekend …”

    “You want me to pretend to be your freaking boyfriend?”

     

    * * * * * * * * *

     

    (In which Dean finds himself at a wedding as Jo's fake boyfriend against his will, groaning and complaining the whole time, but still trying to appear all handsome and perfect and utterly in love since he's an awesome friend like that (and since Jo would make his life a living hell otherwise). And just when he begins to think that it won't be so bad to eat tons of free food and let his daughter Emma enjoy the festivity his gaze suddenly meets the two bluest eyes in existence and the world stops to move for a moment.

    Because of course the groom's brother turns out to be his old high school crush Castiel – the only person Dean was never able to forget – and things start to become really complicated all of a sudden.)

    Summary

    Dean Winchester has been alone for a long, long time.

    When he and Castiel happen to find each other - a couple of survivors in a world that’s been all but wiped clean - Dean’s looking for his brother; Castiel is looking for something to look for. They stick together, because neither of them much wants to be alone. They hate each other at first, of course. Dean hates Castiel for being weird and quiet and ironic and antagonistic and proud. Castiel hates Dean for being blunt and reckless and coarse, for drinking, for refusing to talk about how he feels and just pretending everything is fine. Most of all, they hate themselves and each other just for being alive. What right do they have to be alive? No one else seems to be.

    But against his own will, Dean starts to notice things about Castiel that he likes. Starts to hope that Castiel might like him, too. And together, they start to fight for a world where they're both alive - and that's a good thing.

    Summary

    Cas Novak is a successful man who can’t seem to accomplish one specific thing: letting go of the man who broke his heart when he left with no explanation.
    Five years ago he’d met Dean Winchester, a groundskeeper at his parents’ country club, purely by chance. Despite the obvious differences in their backgrounds, a fateful fireworks display on the Fourth of July takes their relationship to a new level. But just before Cas plans to introduce Dean to his family, he disappears with no explanation and only a single text: “Don’t seek me out anymore, Cas.”
    Now, years later, a chance meeting will open the door for a lot of painful truths to be revealed, and another Fourth of July declaration might just be the thing that can bring them back together.

    Summary

    New York, 1895. The rigid customs of the old century are beginning to fall away, allowing access to the professions for more people than just Omega men and Alpha women. Dean Winchester, the city’s first Alpha male Detective, uncovers evidence that a mysterious new illness killing mated couples might have its origins is the criminal rather than the medical.

    Castiel Novak is a respectable Omega doctor who has started to see patients dying cruelly of something he cannot cure or even effectively treat. Approached by the Detective to once again give his medical expertise, he is eager to work towards finding a cause and, he hopes, a cure for the unfortunate sufferers. But both men harbour a secret attraction towards the other, and the quest for the truth will stretch their relationship beyond its limits.

    A historical murder mystery set against a backdrop of a non-traditional Omegaverse.

    Summary

    Seven years after Sam left the family's ranch to attend Stanford, Dean's completely transformed the family's failing cattle business into a growing horse ranch. Sam's only got one condition for coming back home after graduation-- let him have a shot to build something of his own, the same as Dean's done. The catch? Sam and Eileen, along with their architect friend Hannah, want to turn a tiny corner of Dean's slice of heaven into a dude ranch.

    The land itself might be heaven on earth, but Dean's invested his entire life into it. He'd made his peace with being alone, until he meets Hannah's brother. Castiel is a solar astronomer who is reluctantly coerced into helping his sister charm Sam's gruff and stubborn brother into saying yes to what has become her dream project. He doesn't imagine he'd have anything in common with a cowboy, but he finds that Dean's the one who ends up charming him.

    Cas won't do anything to jeopardize Hannah's shot at her dream, and Dean is reluctant to put Sam's homecoming at risk. If only Dean and Cas could keep their distance from one another, maybe they could set aside their attraction for the sake of their siblings’ business plans. The heavens seem to have other plans for them…

    Summary

    Dean likes to think he had it all; a good job, good money, kickass friends, and hell, no shortage of men and women in his bed. He’s an alpha living the dream. The one thing he didn’t have was a mate.

    Castiel prides himself on being a pinnacle of the modern omega. He works hard and he sleeps with whoever he wants, society’s rules be damned. He spent a long time telling himself he didn’t need a mate to take care of him nor did he find himself wanting one anyways. Then Dean Winchester happened. Suddenly, being content with just sex is becoming a harder lie to tell himself, especially as Dean makes it clear he wants more.

    What started as a simple hook-up after the annual Sandover Christmas party last year has turned into a loosely agreed upon friends with benefits arrangement; Minus the friends part. Dean knows they’re compatible enough to be mates, but Cas just can’t seem to be convinced.

    Summary

    On the road, Dean has no responsibilities except to his car and his stomach. Baby’s tires hammer across the pavement--singing their freedom--and it’s as familiar to him as the decades-old Rock and Roll mixed tapes blasting through the speakers, and just as loved. The open road is the only place he has ever belonged.

    Then there’s Castiel. It was never meant to be a permanent thing, this… whatever it is between them. Dean picks him up on impulse--a hitchhiker along the side of the highway. He doesn’t know where he came from, only that like Dean, he doesn’t know where he’s going. So they drive and before long, Castiel becomes Cas, the best friend Dean’s ever had.

    He didn’t anticipate running into Cas’s long-lost kid along the way... Or maybe, that only opens the door to the best part.

Moving forward together turns out to be easier said than done, and Dean’s left wondering if anything’s changed after all.

    Summary

    "Every land has a history, every empire a conquest. Every kingdom also has a border - lines on a map that can easily be drawn out on a scroll with a quill and an ink. But what of the borders of the mind? Of the human heart? What of families separated by the lines of black ink, what of lovers split by mere drawings?"

    A death in the palace sends High Paladin Castiel of Viridia to the Witherlands in search of answers. Populated by the Fallen people who were once banished from his own home, Castiel comes face to face with the Necromancer, Dean Winchester, and his enigmatic brother, Sam, both of whom save his life and join his quest.

    But there’s an ancient secret hiding within the walls of the palace itself. A conspiracy that is as old as Viridia, that dates back to the creation of the Witherlands, is unfolding and Castiel and Dean will have to unravel it or risk losing not only their newfound relationship, but their entire world as they know it.

    Summary

    Dean eases Baby down the frontage road, trying not to look in the rearview mirror as his home gets smaller and smaller behind him.

    He’s done this a hundred times. He’s driven down this road in the soft morning light, heading out to some little town in some distant corner of the country. This is a job like any other.

    “It’s not like we’re never coming back,” Cas says from the passenger seat.

    Dean and Cas and the open road, to the tune of Led Zeppelin.
