    Summary

    “Dean turns seventeen today. We went shooting. Then I sent him out on his first hunt.“

    •••

    What first appears to be a gift in the form of being trusted on a solo hunt turns out to be another one of John’s lessons. Dean, being the obedient son, learns this lesson that is forced upon him despite never wanting to.

    •••

    Dean is questioning if he’s bi and John somehow finds out and sends him on a solo hunt to teach him a lesson. This is based on an entry from John Winchester’s journal and takes place prior to season one when Dean is 17.

    Summary

    “Are you sure you’re ready for this”
    “Oh, I don't have a choice. This is my destiny. It's just so beautiful”.
    “Are you crying?”
    “What? No. You’re crying. I’m not crying… I’m gonna go get some… uh”
    “Pie?”
    “I’m gonna get some damn pie!”

    Dean had almost revealed too much again. His anxiety had yo-yoed all day. He had elated moments of contentment, even bliss as the hours ticked down, feeling more at peace with his decision, enjoying simple moments with Sam. The lighthearted wisecracks they shared between them gave Dean a window into Sam’s future; a long and happy life that, according to what Adam had relayed from Jack, he would now certainly get to live.

    “Is this the place?” Sam asked, completely unaware of any of the thoughts that plagued his brother’s mind. Ha!

    “Dark, creepy, something out of Wes Cravins erotic fantasy? Yeah, it's one hundred percent the place”. Dean confirmed, both with himself and to his brother. This is the place I'm gonna die.

    Summary

    When Castiel unexpectedly falls and becomes human, he looks to Dean for help. Dean shows him what it means to be human while discovering it for himself post-Hell. Dean takes time to heal from his trauma, struggling to find a way to be happy again, while Cas has to learn that he is loved even without his powers. They help each other on the journey of healing while falling for each other and working cases.
    -
    Tw// PTSD from Dean’s trauma in Hell and childhood. Flashbacks will have some uncomfortable and/or abusive moments between Dean and John. Self harm. Alcoholism. Symptoms of PTSD and depression, but no one dies. Please take care of yourself, and don't read if you think this will hurt you.
    -
    This takes place circa season 5, but I won't be referencing much of the Michael and Lucifer stuff. Mainly just about the timeline where Dean recently got out of Hell and Cas is a traitor to Heaven.

    Summary

    It’s been six months since Sam left to go to Stanford, and two months since John died on a random, nameless vamp hunt. Dean is all by himself, barely hanging onto his sanity, throwing himself into hunts so the emptiness around and inside him seems a little more bearable.

    One such hunt leads the Omega to Silver Peak, a small Washington town where someone is targeting Alphas and killing them gruesomely. Dean’s plan is to get in and get out, but that changes when he walks into the Honeybee Bakery and meets Castiel Novak.

    Suddenly, Dean finds all of his buried desires for a family, an Alpha, and a normal life coming roaring to the surface, and they aren’t backing down. It doesn’t help that every time he thinks he finds a solid reason why a life of happiness and love can’t be for him, Castiel somehow manages to find a counterargument without even trying.

     

    Or, a loosely-canon A/B/O story where Castiel is just a sweet, gentle Alpha civilian and Dean is a lonely Omega hunter starving for any scraps of affection and love he can get.

    Summary

    Sam has just left for law school and Dean is down in the dumps. After finding a book series on his life he is drawn to an unassuming house with questions but gains more as the encounter happens.
    What's this about God being as depressed as him?
    He already knows angels are dicks.
    I'm going to cause the apoco-what?
    There is no way he is going to be an angel's meat suit. Shooting first and asking questions later is not a good coping mechanism when he accepts to be merged with God. Life may have been God's story but now it's Deans video game and he is going to do whatever selfish thing he wants for the first time in his life.

    Summary

    The Empty may have taken Cas, and it may have been part of a deal Cas himself made, but no way in Hell is Dean going to let it stay that way. He will do everything in his power to get Cas, his angel, back from there. No matter what.

    And that's exactly what he did.

    Summary

    Dean’s life is defined by emptiness. It seems to be divided into sections, really. Before the Fire, and After. Before Hell, and After.

    Before Castiel, and After.

    It's that last After that might just give him the love and fulfillment he needs to get rid of his emptiness forever.

    Or: A fix-it fic featuring Dean being sad, and Castiel making it better, Castiel making it worse, and the two boys finally pulling their heads out of their asses, even if it takes death and Heaven and One Very Tired Moose to get there.

    Summary

    So, answering the question "Why didn't Cas welcome Dean the minute he appeared in heaven?" The answer is: Dean from the 15x13 episode arrived before him and they got distracted together...It's not as dirty as it sounds, but it could??...

    Summary

    Dean didn't think that Cas could ever love him back. He fell in love with an angel that got him out of Hell, raised him up from perdition. The looks, the touches, the body language; there wasn't any hidden meaning on Cas' end, right?

    He was wrong.

    Cas confessed his love for him, alright, but he wasn't his Cas. No... he was something deadly, something corrupt, wrong. He can gank any monster; any time, any day, and yet, he doesn't have it in him to kill the monster he fell in love with. He, as painful as it is to admit, craves his touch. He wants Cas to be inside of him. He wants... all of him.

    Summary

    The story ended stupidly. I was one of the greatest hunters ever, why did I die of a rusty nail? Sam could have turned and cured me of vampirism if he truly wanted me to live. Not call an ambulance. I was just getting my life together after Cas. Cas. Cas! Now I got this crazy person talking about an injustice to ships and the universe collapsing without a Light, Darkness and Death. Should have known that killing beings that pre-date existence was a bad idea. Cas is there getting berated too. Now as I always do I`m going to fix a problem with a bigger one by changing the timeline. The trinity won't just come back to life because they exist outside of it but we can gain higher powers to fill the gaps. So many to save so many things to hunt.

    (...)

    I'm kind of discouraged to continue writing something after this freak show that was this con in Denver..and an asshole comment, all in the same week. Nobody deserves this, damn! But I didn't leave the story incomplete at least. 😬
