    Summary

    Castiel Novak is the lead singer of Dean Winchester's favorite rock and roll band "The Angels"
    Dean is just a nerdy IT guy. Obviously he doesn't stand a chance with Castiel.
    Well at least not until his best friend Charlie enters his name in the "Date With an Angel" contest and he actually wins.
    This is the story of two men who are brought together by fate. In each other they find the strength to overcome their dark past of forced prostitution and rape, and to stand up for what they believe in; to stand up for love.

    Summary

    As usual, an apparently simple hunt goes tits up when the boys wind up on the wrong side of a 'witch'. Since she's just a misguided teenager, Sam and Dean decide to let her live – in spite of the fact that she claimed to have cast a spell to bind Dean to his soulmate and slowly kill them both. Of course, Dean thinks the joke's on her. Really? Soulmates? It's hilarious, until it's not, and he wakes up the next morning with a really pissed off angel perched on the end of his bed.

    They soon find out that the spell really, really sucks. Not only is it physically painful for Dean and Cas to be too far apart, but they can hear eachother's thoughts and feel eachother's emotions. The hardest part, for Dean at least, is having to learn to control Castiel's grace, which apparently is now a part of him and somehow fully restored. It would be awesome, if it didn't feel like he was caught in the middle of a tempest all the time. How did Jimmy describe being possessed by Cas? Like riding a comet? He wasn't wrong.

    Summary

    Dean is a mess. He can barely keep his crap together well enough to hunt, and Sam is definitely starting to suspect that something might be wrong. Cas is perfectly content to pretend everything's fine, while avoiding him like the plague. Meanwhile, what should have been a simple hunt turns into a complete Fiasco. Dean has never been more scared in his life, and he might actually give up on living if he loses his angel - unless they find their way to each other through the nightmares and emotional hangups. Sam just wishes Gabe would pick up his damned candy wrappers.

    Summary

    Dean knew he probably didn't have it in him to actually gank Gabriel for his latest round of torment, but nothing was going to stop him from trying to rip him a new one. ...If he ever managed to escape the ridiculous hallucination he was trapped in this time. He was a homicide detective, apparently, but that didn't explain why Cas was almost naked in his kitchen, sipping coffee and bitching about his secretary. ...And why the actual hell did Cas just call him “Darling”?!

    Summary

    Basically, Dean and Cas are trying to get Sam laid. Typical what-the-fuckery ensues. There will be two versions to each chapter. The first being light, full of quips and typical brother nonsense. The second being more serious and Sam's true thoughts as each question comes to light. Tags will be added as needed.

    Special love and thanks to 48eyesand32teeth1sharptongue for beta-reading and reassuring me this isn't incomprehensible nonsense.

    Summary

    Castiel is thrilled to discover that Gabriel's pulled a few strings in Hell, allowing the demon to go top-side to try and collect as many souls as he can to impress his bosses. With a checklist on Being Human and Beezlebub's Official Obtaining Book for Souls (BOOBS for short) he's ready to go. However, he didn't realize that meeting a certain mute mechanic would present such a challenge. Dean's soul is so bright that it's almost blinding and Castiel makes it his personal mission to corrupt the man. But, what happens when doubts start to confuse him? He'd always been such a good rule follower, but pretending to be human may end up being harder than he thought. Featuring: Mute Dean the Mechanic, Demon Castiel, Star Trek references, Buffy references, ASL, Crossroads Demon Gabriel, and all the confused head tilts you could ever ask for! And smut, obviously.

    Summary

    SPOILERS: If you've watched 8.01, you're good. This is not really Season-8-related though, it’s pretty standalone.

    Summary: A simple hunt leaves Sam in an altered state no one seems able to explain – at first. Pulling him out of it proves harder than expected, especially since Dean is already struggling with the effects of his own trauma.

    This is a semi-AU in which Cas didn't survive Swan Song, Bobby wasn’t there for the cemetery showdown, and both he and Ellen are still around. Sam escaped the Cage with his soul intact, but not without a price.

    Warnings: Language, occasional graphic reference to the torture Sam endured in The Cage; kidnapping (though not central). I may add individual warnings to future chapters.

    Triggers: While this fic has no sexual content, and mainly keeps to show-level violence, it deals in part with loss of power and with severe lack of autonomy, which can still be triggering to some. Also, Sam is extremely dissociated for a lot of this. If you are a trauma survivor – especially if you're dissociative – please take this into consideration.
    ETA: Occasional self-injury in later chapters. There will be warnings.
