    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

    Dean was what everyone in the school would classify as your ‘typical nerd’. Straight A’s in everything, homework before dinner, no social life besides online gaming, virgin at the age of seventeen, and a senior no less type of nerd.

    Castiel was dating the hottest girl in school, who also happened to be cheer-leading captain. He has a ride to his favorite university because of his smarts. Why can't anyone get past the jock exterior and look past it into who he really is? Appearances can be deceiving. He might as well play into it right?

    Inspired by the movie "She's All That"

    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

    In the years following his mother's death in a house fire, Dean Winchester begins to develop OCD as a way to cope with the loss. After more than a decade without a diagnosis, his symptoms grow more severe. And after the sudden death of John Winchester, Dean is left to cope by himself and Sam is forced to quit his undergrad in order to care for him. Ashamed of his shut-in life, and guilty that his little brother has become his caretaker at the expense of everything else, Dean seeks out therapy, and five years later, is holding down a full time job, can freely visit his favorite coffee shop to get a daily dose of Castiel, the (hot) hippie owner, and Sam is now free to return to school.

    Sam Winchester would do anything for his brother, but he is more than thrilled to finally be returning to school, even if he is a 23 year-old sophomore. It also helps that a certain smart mouthed TA is helping him get back into the groove. Of course, getting a good read on Gabriel is just about as easy as advanced Chemistry, and he's not so great at that, either. As the semester goes on, he gets the distinct impression that his orderly life is about to get messy.

    Summary

    Castiel Novak is the lead singer of Dean Winchester's favorite rock and roll band "The Angels"
    Dean is just a nerdy IT guy. Obviously he doesn't stand a chance with Castiel.
    Well at least not until his best friend Charlie enters his name in the "Date With an Angel" contest and he actually wins.
    This is the story of two men who are brought together by fate. In each other they find the strength to overcome their dark past of forced prostitution and rape, and to stand up for what they believe in; to stand up for love.

    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

    “I told you not to touch that! Why don’t you ever fucking listen to me?”

    Sam’s booming voice is so painfully loud that Dean actually has to slap his hands over his ears, craning his neck to look up at his brother.

    Way up.

    Way, way up.

    Like…miles up.

    Summary

    Castiel and Dean meet for the first time on a plane ride out of Nowhere, Alaska. Castiel’s headed home after an impulsive solo vacation and Dean, a hardened Alaskan native, is just trying to get out of the impossibly small town he grew up in that’s got nothing left to offer him. They forge an instant connection over Dean’s flying anxiety and whiskey, a meet-cute that has all the makings of a rom-com with a sickeningly sweet happy ending. That is, until their plane explodes in mid-air, crashing headlong into the Alaskan wilderness and killing everyone on board save for Dean and Castiel. When no rescue shows up to save them, the two men are forced to make some tough decisions. To make it home alive they’ll have to trust each other and find faith neither of them has ever really wanted. Will they survive or succumb to the unforgiving mountain wilderness? And will their journey tear them apart... or bring them closer together?

    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

    He woke with a jolt, sitting in the Impala on some backroad with Sammy sleeping shotgun. Like always. Only no, not always. They had a bunker now. They had a home. Maybe Dean had finally lost it. That, or Cas pulled one hell of a Hail Mary, because his little brother looked about ten years younger and his phone was saying it was 2005. TIMELINE AU

    Based on the prompt: "I was ten years old when I witnessed the murder of my entire family.

In a strange way, they saved me - with everyone else gone I might have gone to pieces, but I HAD to find the killer, so I held it together, I got through school, I rose through the ranks of detective, and now finally, finally, I’m on their trail. I have to find them. I have to meet them. I have to tell them that I love them."

    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

    -

    “We've got some lotion that might help your hand,” Castiel offers. “Though I want you to see our doctor as well, Dean.”

    The hunter feels himself stiffen and scowls at the man in front of him. “A doctor? I don't need -”

    “I beg to differ,” Castiel cuts in, totally unapologetic. “You came into contact with unknown substances. We should check it out. Just in case.”

    Dean snorts. “You're not actually my boss, Cas.”

    Castiel's expression turns dangerously stern. “I know that very well, Dean. However, within these walls I have a certain authority and you'd be wise not to defy me.”

    Dean refuses to shiver in a not entirely unpleasant manner and scolds his own traitorous body for enjoying this.

     

    * * * * *

     

    (As a hunter Dean is, quite begrudgingly, forced to work with the Man of Letters Castiel and he does absolutely not feel some very weird things when he's close to the guy with the piercing blue eyes, the messy hair and the tasteless sweater vests.

    He does not!)

    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

    Cas and Dean have been driving Sam crazy for a decade with their pathetic mutual pining, so Sam's slightly manipulative sex party solution seems more than fair. Now it's just a matter of some shopping for supplies, and a bit of reverse psychology.
