    Summary

    A series of short one shots based off of my ridiculous headcanons. Most are destiel, and all are completely ridiculous.

     

    This will be updated at random and most will come from my ramblings on tiktok @priestly67

    Summary

    Dean had died when Cas had, of course, despite the way his heart kept beating. Cas was dead and Dean was dead but there was work to be done. And so, he had moved his legs from place to place because he had to. And he had defeated one God, then beheld the (brief) birth and death of the new one from some hollowed-out portion of his self. It had been awe-inspiring, but the part of him that felt awe had died so he had merely watched, exhausted and thinking that maybe it would end.
    And then it hadn’t ended. Nothing had ended; they’d finished the story god wrote but nothing had ended.

    Cas was dead and then he wasn't. Dean's not sure how to deal with that.

    Summary

    A day and a half after Cas has been rescued from the Empty, he realizes he needs sleep. But the Empty permeates his dreams until he feels like he’s falling into a never-ending nightmare. So instead, he forces himself to wander around the Bunker until the exhaustion is unbearable; until he collapses and falls asleep leaning against the jukebox in Dean’s cave or curled up in the hallway outside of Dean’s room or in the garage with his head against the drivers door of the Impala. He wasn't aware of it at the time, but he finds spaces that are etched by Dean’s presence or his energy. And sometimes, there’s a mirage of Dean, there to take care of him and help him drift off to sleep. But it’s only a mirage… at least that’s what Cas thinks.

    Summary

    He can’t do this, maybe he was meant to do this, but he can’t and he knows he should try to, that someone needs to take this on, but maybe at least he shouldn’t have to be alone. This power isn’t about him, none of this is about him, but he can’t help selfishly thinking what’s the point of having anything like this if he can’t have Cas back?
    Do you ever think about how Jack deciding that maybe Godhood is one burden he shouldn't have to take on – for once – would actually be quite a good ending for him?

    Summary

    "You changed me Dean... because you cared, I cared. [...] I love you"
    Storia post series finale, dove finalmente Dean fa i conti con i suoi sentimenti e con l'angelo che ha cambiato, e l'ha cambiato, per sempre.
    Tutti noi vorremmo che l'ultimo episodio non fosse mai stato girato, almeno non in quel modo. Dean in paradiso, in attesa di Sam, una distanza imbarazzata tra tutti i personaggi e un grande, sofferente, insostenibile vuoto. Non bastano un sorriso e un sospiro alla menzione di Castiel a colmare la lacuna lasciata dalla sua assenza, a dare pace a un tormento che si protraeva da fin troppi anni, e che troppo a lungo ha accompagnato Dean e Castiel nella scoperta di sé stessi, e del loro vero essere. Ma se tra il momento in cui Dean ha salutato Bobby in Paradiso per mettersi in viaggio, e quello in cui Sam l'ha finalmente raggiunto, non fosse passato così poco come l'episodio lascia intuire? Il tempo passa diversamente in Paradiso, ma Dean non può scappare da sé stesso, e non può scappare da colui che, per undici anni, l'ha amato e protetto sacrificandosi per lui senza remore.

    Summary

    Dean was, not for the first time, struck stupid by the sight of his best friend’s eyes glowing with happiness in the light of the rosy sunrise light. Even after everything Castiel had gone through, all the glorious moments of divine purity he had the good fortune of witnessing and having a hand in, the one thing that makes him honestly happy is…this? Cheap coffee and a bag of lollies that have probably been sitting there since Eisenhour was president? He still couldn't believe it.

    It had been a year since Dean had been thrown onto that ridiculous rebar. It had been a year since Sam held his lifeless frame and cried over his brother's skewered, bleeding heart. It had been a year since the drive home to find Castiel sitting in The Bunker with a letter proclaiming Jack had done the unthinkable. It had been a year since Dean found himself somehow breathing again.

    Summary

    Sam put his hands up slightly, trying to diffuse some of the tension. "It's him. I've run him through every test we know how to do."

    "No, Sam. It's just Lucifer." Dean closed his eyes. "It's just a dream."

    Sam's face scrunched. "No Dean, it's not."

    "It always is." Dean waited. Every night he has the nightmare. He gets the call and goes running. He's on a case and he sees him. A hundred variations on getting Cas back, and it's always Lucifer.

    "Not this time."

    (A finale fix-it.)

    Summary

    The Empty had been asleep a long time, or it would have known and laid different conditions-- any different conditions-- for Castiel's return to its domain.

    A being such as an angel does not experience a "moment of true happiness," especially one born out of love, without consequences.

    Summary

    Post series fic (15X20 excluded) where Castiel has been saved and brought back to the bunker. Only thing is, Cas came back with a renewed sense of self and a need to be more open and honest about the things he wants. Dean isn't sure he's ready for this new, emboldened Castiel. Add a trip to Sioux Falls to the mix, and our boys might just get the push they've been needing to hash out some feelings.

    Summary

    Long ago, an angel with celestial blue eyes looked at him and said, “Good things do happen Dean.” For which, with the pain and the hatred and the loneliness he answered back, “Not in my experience.”

    And those words he said, those words he uttered, even all these years were true. Because the same angel those years ago looked at him now with softened kinder eyes and said I love you and was about to be wrenched away before Dean could say—

    Summary

    What makes a tragedy?

    This Castiel does not know, but he does know that his own life holds many similarities to tragedies like that of Orpheus. So surely, his own life is a tragedy. After all, just like Orpheus he has loved and lost and doomed his lover time and time again. But, for all his mistakes, he should not be called Orpheus - He does not look back with doubting eyes or shaky hands, and does not let his despair blind him. Rather, in this tragedy, Castiel is borne the name Eurydice. The lover lost.

    or: a look on tragedies, and hope.

    Summary

    The Bunker feels like home to Castiel, something especially soothing to him after his incarceration by Asmodeous and attempted murder at Lucifers' hands. There was a small chill to it now though as Cas realised the brothers had not known of his kidnap, had not been able to tell the difference between him and the Prince of Hell impersonating him these past weeks.

    Rocked by unpleasant emotions and the need to recharge his vessel Castiel slips into a fitful slumber, being woke abruptedly a few short hours later by Dean.

    What follows is a harrowing series of events for them both and the Seraph begins to fall deeper into despair.
