A rewrite of the missing year after Season 5 to explore what might have happened that year had Castiel not tried so hard to keep Dean out of the war in Heaven and, instead, decided to remain by his side.
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR SEASONS 1-6.
Prior to the apocalypse, Sam made Castiel swear an oath on his Grace to leave Sam in Hell and take care of Dean when Sam was gone, if Cas survived. When Castiel returns Dean prays for his help, and Cas joins him on Earth instead of going back to Heaven. Bound together, things begin to unravel around Dean and Cas, as Heaven begins to fall, Hell starts to rise in the wake of Lucifer's defeat, Earth is nearly overrun by the Children of Eve, Dean discovers family he never knew he had, and the world sets its eyes on the Righteous Man once again as their savior.
Begins during the year between Season 5 and 6, canonically; given that Dean takes a year to 'retire' and then gets back into hunting. Inspired in large part by how Castiel's character development was disappointingly retconned in Season 6, and uses the characterization of Castiel from seasons 4 and 5 to explore what could have been done in Season 6 and beyond after the apocalypse.
