    Summary

    Time travel. That actually makes sense. It would also explain why his grace feels so weak, why his body aches so much. But Castiel can’t remember traveling through time. He wouldn’t do that without a reason, right? 

    The Winchesters are still looking at him, waiting for an answer. 

    “2008.”, Castiel answers and his eyes wander to Dean again, “September 2008.”

    Dean draws in a sharp breath.

    “Son of a bitch”, he hisses.

    ---

    Dean is still mourning the loss of his best friend, when something decides to drop the Castiel from 2008 right into the bunker. Now Dean is not only confronted with a pissed off angel he can barely look at, they also have to find out what brought Castiel into their timeline. And especially, what's the reason behind this?

    Summary

    Dean's always loved books.

    (OR: You know how Dean Winchester is an autodidact who built an EMF machine out of a Walkman, got his GED just because, knows the difference and nuances in Vonnegut's works, is good at strategy and LARPs, easily references Tolstoy and ancient Greek fables, and has a huge pop culture knowledge base because he soaks up everything like a sponge? Me too. And you know how Supernatural usually wants us to pretend that's not true? Yeah ... how about fuck that?

    A #DeanStudies fic that proposes Dean has an interior life, a brain in his head, and the urge to do better. Oh and, of course, it fixes the finale!)

    Summary

    All Dean Winchester wants is to open his own tattoo shop, which is why he signs up for Tattoo Gods, a tattooing reality show with a $100,000 grand prize. He also wants to avoid making an ass of himself on national TV, and he definitely wants to avoid falling for Cas Novak, another artist who’s not only his direct competitor, but someone he’s had an unspoken rivalry with since before he started apprenticing, and is just as ridiculously talented as he is stunning (and, as Dean comes to find out, kind and funny and passionate and sincere). Is that too much to ask?

    Apparently, yes. Yes, it is.

    Summary

    Having a soulmate isn't always a good thing. Castiel Novak knew, from the age of four, that he had a soulmate. He could feel every bit of pain that his soulmate experienced--every injury, every hurt, every disappointment his soulmate suffered, he felt. By the time he's eighteen, Castiel has felt the pain beyond his imagining, and he's left with the simple question: why does his soulmate hate him so?

    Dean Winchester never wanted a soulmate. He grew up watching how the loss of his soulmate destroyed his father. Unfortunately, when he's four years old, he finds himself saddled with one. He spends his teenage years desperate to deny even the smallest comfort from his soulmate.

    When tragedy strikes, Castiel sets off on a mission of revenge that will send his life crashing into Dean's. Determined to defy fate, the two separate, only to come back together, only to separate again. But when a demon deal threatens not only Dean's life but Castiel's, the two have to connect in order to save each other, themselves, and maybe, while they're at it, the world.

    Summary

    Claire just flashes him a tired smirk and says, “This what you killed God for? To be used as a desk?” She jerks her head towards where Cas is scrolling away on the laptop one-handed, absently tracing a thumb around Dean’s ankle because that kind of thing is normal for them now and, honestly? Yeah. This is exactly what he killed God for.

    “Technically, that was Billie,” is what he says instead.

    “Semantics.”

    Summary

    “I don’t like being God.” Jack confesses, “Even with Amara and all the angels, it’s lonely. I want to give my powers over to her, perfect harmony, and come back home. Before I can do that, I think I need to make good on what I said to him.”

    “Are you saying-?” He can’t bring himself to say it, afraid to be wrong. If he’s wrong he knows he’ll continue to do what he does best, figure it the fuck out, but he’s just so tired of things being difficult.

    He hopes for it to be this simple, if only just this once.

    “My last act as God is going to be saving Cas from the Empty.”

    -

    In which Castiel is saved from the Empty and becomes a bartender at a western themed bar, Dean fights his alcohol addiction and his own feelings, and everyone else is confused as to why they’re not together already.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is looking for his father. Castiel Harvelle is looking for revenge. Sam Winchester and Jessica Moore are the perfect couple… unless you count the secrets they’re keeping from each other. One night, these four lives collide, and nothing will ever be the same.

    Summary

    Two months after Team Free Will beats Chuck, Jack brings Cas back and Dean wants so badly to respond to Cas's confession in the dungeon, but to do that he needs to shed a lifetime of trauma, self hatred, and internalized homophobia. After moving in to a farmhouse with Cas, Dean secretly starts going to therapy every Thursday afternoon. He also starts working on getting the tattoos he always wanted in an effort to reclaim a body that he's only ever seen as a tool.

    or

     

    Cas stole Dean's favorite Zeppelin shirt, Dean steals it back, Cas steals it again. A shirt-theft war like nothing you've ever seen ensues. The entire family takes sides. Is it foreplay? Yes. Is it good clean family fun? Sometimes. Are Jack's god powers used unwisely in the name of the Zepp shirt battle? Yeah, probably. Is Dean messier than a sloppy joe? Nooooo, not at all.

     

    This fic starts out like it's going to be Serious Business (and parts of it are), but it's mostly ridiculous fluff and Dean finally allowing himself to be soft.

    Summary

    Six months after Cas was swallowed by the Empty, Dean, Sam and Jack find a spell to pull an angel from the Empty, but the last ingredient is missing. Determined to save Cas, Dean travels back to 2009 to get the missing ingredient from the only person who can give it to him: Castiel, fresh from having pulled Dean from hell.

    (Inspired by the tumblr post about what would be the most insane combination of Dean and Cas to meet. My answer was post-confession Dean and season 4 Cas)

    Summary

    He doesn't know who to blame anymore, who's at fault at the root of everything. It's Dad. It's Mom. It's Mary, and it's John. It's Dean, at the end of the day. What do the roots matter when the tree is on fire? 

    "I don't want to be the Dean you wanted me to be," Dean tells her quietly. 

    Mary swallows. "Don't worry, you're not." 

    "What's he like? That Dean." 

    "Just like you." 

    "Then what's the difference?" 

    "He never lost his mom."

    Summary

    Claire isn't stupid. Show a girl your scars, doesn't make her yours. 

    There was a stained glass in the church her parents took her to when she was small, depicting a pretty woman with wings. An angel, her mother had said. I want to marry her, Claire had replied. They prayed for her that day, the whole damn congregation. 

    ~~~

    "Why'd you follow me?" Kaia asks. 

    "Why'd you jump in front of a spear for me?" Claire retorts, then immediately regrets it when Kaia curls in further around herself, like she's protecting her abdomen. It's a scar Claire hasn't seen.

    Summary

    Castiel slips from his chair to kneel at Dean’s feet. He takes Dean’s hands in his, and there on the floor holding something with devotion, he understands Communion. He understands Eucharist. He understands believing in someone so deeply that to shelter a piece of them within yourself is an act of untempered faith, love and prayer and deep-wide trust.

    Cas comes back. Dean can’t stop touching him.

    Summary

    The year is 1996, and Dean’s stuck in Kankakee, Illinois while Dad’s on a long-haul hunt. It’s not too bad. He’s even got a friend, now—even if Cas is a weird, gawky loner kid who gets way too intense about his sci-fi novels and doesn’t know how to stop staring. Just business as usual.

    Until his dad comes back, and it isn’t.

    The year is 2011, and the shadows known as ‘angels’ and ‘demons’ are falling from cracks in the sky, raining death, destruction, and monsters where they pass. When the Joint Task Force asks for their help in stopping the end of the world—John Winchester, his sons, and a ragtag band of hunters—well, that’s just business as usual, too.

    Until Dean meets the cold blue eyes of their team liaison—Dr. Castiel Novak.

    Summary

    Dean keeps going back.

    When he arrives, it's always to blooming flowers and a windmill in the background, not too far from a brook, the sun painting the plains.

    He likes it there. He likes to stand in front of the makeshift urn and check that it's still where he put it, switching out the flowers when they wilt. He likes to listen to the sound of birds chirping, insects singing, the faint sound of water trickling in the distance. He likes to turn his face up and feel the sun on his skin, wondering if Cas would do the same if he were here, somehow knowing that he would.

    He likes to talk.

    There's never a response, but Dean feels the breeze rustle through his hair and watches the flowers bob when bees come to them and stares as the windmill keeps turning, turning, turning. And he imagines that Cas is replying—the windmill is the tilted head, the bobbing flowers are a gentle smile, the breeze is whatever words Dean wants to hear at the time.

    Sometimes, it's almost like he's there.

    Summary

    Castiel thought about the things he knew were true. First, he was in love with Dean, had loved him for years. Second, Dean didn’t return his feelings. Dean couldn’t return his feelings. Castiel knew that Dean loved him, of course, but Dean loved him like a brother, like family. Third, Dean treated hunting as a calling. He’d told Castiel before that he knew he’d die on a hunt someday as though that was his destiny. Hunting wasn’t something Dean would readily give up.

    Yet it was clear that Dean also loved Jack. He’d stepped up and acted as Jack’s father without anyone asking him to and it was a role he was well-suited to. And Castiel had found his thoughts wandering back to that one afternoon he still wished he could change, to watching Dean rake leaves in the yard of a suburban house as though there was nowhere else in the world he’d rather be.

    It was that memory that had led Castiel to carefully say, “Dean, if you wanted to, you could live with Jack and I.”

    -
    This fic is a baby!Jack au with Cas and Dean coparenting a child while pointedly avoiding admitting their feelings for each other! There's a lot of domestic fluff, a little bit of angst, and even a ghost hunt thrown in for some fun (and plot).
