Smoke and Burn
“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, but I’ve yet to reach the calm. I’m starting to think it got lost on the way.” - Castiel Novak
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.
- Part 1 of Smoke and Burn
Almost three years since Cas woke up.
Everything has changed.
Their love remains the same.
