    Summary

    When Dean and his partner Castiel receive an invitation from his estranged father’s girlfriend to spend Christmas with them, Dean reluctantly agrees, seeing an opportunity for closure, or maybe even rekindling a relationship. But will the trip do more harm than good? At what point will Castiel decide that all of Dean's baggage is just too much?

    Is it possible to start over with your father when he wasn’t much of a father to you in the first place?

    Summary

    From under the rolled up sleeves of Castiel's sweater Dean could just see the wings that tattooed his skin, the tips of feathers done in a dark ink. He didn't need to see the rest to know each line, each feather and detail. To know the way the dark ink made Cas's tanned skin seem to glow, to know how the feathers had been engraved along his shoulder blades and down his arms to just below his elbows, or the way Jack's name had been done cursivly in one of the feathers.

    Dean knew every inch of that tattoo, and part of him wondered how long he'd know every inch of that tattoo.

    How long he'd know every inch of the other's body.

    How long he'd know every shade of blue that danced through his irises.

    How long he'd know the gravely tone of the other's voice

    How long it would take before he could look to Castiel, and not feel the heartache of everything he'd lost.

    -

    Or, where it's been almost a year since Dean and Castiel have broken up and struggle with joint custody, lingering feelings, and the Christmas season

    Summary

    It has been four years. Four years since Sam left. Since Sam had been able to see his brother in person. Since he had seen his father. Since he had first taken a breath of freedom, feeling safe for the first time ever.

    Sam never thought he would see his father again. And he sure as hell never thought there would be any reason to give him the time of day if he did. But well, life loves to bite him in the ass when it comes to expectations.

    John sighed, “Dean is on a hunting trip.” He sat down at the counter, hunching over himself in exhaustion.

    “Dean is always on a hunting trip.” Sam reminded him.

    John glared Sam down. “Dean is on a hunting trip, and he hasn’t been home in a while.”

    An alternate universe where the Men of Letters was never killed.

    Summary

    ”Look, I said I’m sorry. I don’t really know what else you want from me” Dean is getting increasingly pissed at this guy. Okay, so maybe the accident was totally his fault but there really isn’t any reason to be this unpleasant about it.

    The guy smiles condescendingly which makes Dean want to punch his handsome face ”Do you have any idea how much this car costs?”

    Dean has mainly been focused on making sure he hasn’t killed anyone but as he turns his attention to the car for the first time the terrible realization dawns upon him.

    [In which Dean should definitely have spent money on car insurance, Castiel is very rude and the only way to avoid crippling debt is to have sex]

    Summary

    "You have given me what I needed most. I want to do the same for you," Amara had told him.

    What if what Dean Winchester had needed most wasn't Mary back, but was for his long coveted Angel to finally be HIS Angel.
    Of course getting what you wish for is never as simple as it first appears and it isn't long before Dean discovers being with Castiel means getting a hell of a lot more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    There are suds clinging up to his elbows and an oversized dog napping by the foot of his leg, lulled by the soft chords of yet another chill evening playlist humming quietly from Alexa. Out the back window, his four-month pregnant wife laughs beneath the languid glow of a particularly warm late summer, kicking a soccer ball around with their two and a half kids in the picket fenced yard. Oh, he thinks fondly, of the places you'll go.

    Somewhere lost to time, two grizzled, mostly-retired warriors gently attempt to sculpt something that’s beginning to resemble a home.

    A story about how life went on long after they thought it had stopped; a tale of two parts.

    Summary

    “I won’t run away. I don’t want to escape,” Castiel insisted stubbornly. His tone, however, after hours of discussing, started to sound hesitant.

    “Why don’t you think it as a second wind in your life? That you will feel more relaxed for once, that you might find your place in the world?” Gabriel replied. The rest of their friends nodded.

    Castiel remained quiet, thinking about a good counter-attack. He found none, though, probably because deep down he knew he was being obtuse.

    He had lived all his life under the wings of his controlling mother and her numerous demands. He felt anxious, overwhelmed, tormented. He was certain he couldn't live like that anymore.

    And, after all, what would he lose if he tried?

    When Castiel took the risk, and met the mysteriously charming Dean Winchester, he finally understood a thing or two about second chances, freedom, and love.

    Summary

    "Hell was a long time 
    But this felt like longer 
    And somehow it hurt more than Hell
    So he must be in Hell
    Yeah he's in Hell
    And he's being punished
    For wanting to be happy"

    It has been 8 months since Sam, Dean, and Jack defeated God
    8 months since Jack became the New God and set Heaven and Hell right
    8 months since the world ended and began anew
    8 months since The Empty took Castiel
    And 8 months since Dean Winchester has gone missing

    WARNING: Lots of violence and torture and Dean Whump. Poor guy. But do not fret-good things do happen.

    Summary

    When Sam left for Stanford, Dean and John didn’t stay together for long. Without Sam there to provoke John or call him on his shit, John turned his frustrations onto Dean. When a hunt took a turn for the worst and left Dean with permanent nerve damage in his leg, John convinced Dean into an early “retirement” and set him up in Sioux Falls with Bobby. He may not be any good at hunting now, but he can still work his way around a car, and it’s kind of nice to make a living on something other than credit card fraud and pool hustling. Things go this way for a couple of years until one day, Sam shows up on Bobby’s doorstep. Covered in cuts and bruises, he delivers the news that John and the Yellow-Eyed Demon are dead. A husk of his former self, Sam learns how to live again, and maybe teaches Dean how to live again, as well.

    Summary

    Although the story takes place in the Fallout universe, you don't have to know the games.

    Castiel Novak was born before the Great War. He got into Vault 111 by mistake. Coincidentally, that’s the Vault designed to observe the effects of long-term cryogenic suspended animation on unsuspecting test subjects. Suddenly, Castiel wakes up, finding the other cryo-capsules empty. Confused, he leaves the vault and sees himself standing in front of a whole different world.

    Dean Winchester was born a long time after the Great War. He was raised in a hopeless world and learned how to deal with raiders, mirelurks and deathclaws at an early age. He lives in the small village called Sanctuary. He just thinks that maybe, life is getting a little less bad after the past events but then a confused, helpless, and odd-looking guy crashes into his life.

    Summary

    “Dad, I can’t believe it!” Sam said as he grabbed John in a hug. John hugged him back but over Sam’s shoulder was watching with narrowed eyes as Dean faltered in his shock and wobbled but found himself caught by Cas who wrapped an arm around Dean’s waist from behind to steady him and give him comfort.

    Sam pulled away and Dean stepped forward unsure what to do. Did he hug his dad? Play it cool?

    Run for his life?

    John comes back to life just as Dean and Cas admit their feelings and agree to try a relationship. Forces try to drive them apart as new and old enemies come after Dean. Will Dean finally be able to stand up to his father and stop the abuse? Will he and Cas be able to salvage their relationship with others trying to tear them apart?

    Timeline for this is a sort of mashup between season 8 and season 9 (purgatory, Abaddon, MOC). The angels did not fall, the trials and Gadreel never happened but Crowley and Abaddon are still in competition for hell.

    Tags and characters to be added. Like most of my stories, this is a dark fic with a very dark John and Dean suffers. Underage is for references to past abuse.

    Summary

    After fifteen years, Sam and Dean finally have free will. But without Castiel, Dean feels nothing. The Winchesters go on one last hunt to free their friend from the Empty and resolve some feelings that have been unresolved for far too long.

    Note: I haven’t regularly watched Supernatural since season 11, but I watched the finale and hated it, so here I am. This is what I’d do to get the ending we got, but less irritating.

    Summary

    Castiel Novak is a respectable, if not a little boring professor at his university. He lives a comfortable, financially stable life with his cat in his modestly-sized apartment. It would appear he has everything he needs, including an over-eager friend and colleague, but when fate tempts him with a seemingly familiar new student by the name of Dean Winchester, Castiel's comfortable life threatens to get turned on its head and things start to get a little juicy.

    Summary

    Missing credits to graduate High School, Dean Winchester is forced to join the Drama Club. After only arriving at the school a year ago, he is scared to have his newly appointed status as one of the football guys tarnished. He plans to have as little to do with the Club and its members, as he can. It seems to be almost impossible though, as he finds himself developing a crush on the dark haired, blue eyed Castiel, who along with his friends Charlie, Garth and Bess, teaches Dean some valuable lessons about love and friendship.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester was a pretty normal guy until the car accident that changed his life.
    Now, with a voice in his head that he isn't so sure is just a voice, a little brother who is way too smart for his own good, and a new friend whose eyes are just a little too blue, Dean will have to navigate the changes in his life. Oh, and he's in the middle of a gang war.

    Oh joy.

    [Loosely based off of the Ghost Rider character on Marvel's Agents of Shield.]

    Summary

    Dean doesn't remember the day Samantha became Samuel, because as far as he knew, there was only ever a Sam (or Sammy to annoy him) Winchester.

    Title is named after Scrawny, a lovely song by Wallows.
