    Summary

    In moments of pain, sometimes all one can do is sing. Maybe Dean Winchester isn't the rocker he imagined himself being, but ...well, nothing. He isn't a rocker but he does, sometimes, sing.

    And sometimes singing helps.

    After it all, Billie, Chuck, the Empty...he deserves that, for something to help, right? Right? Probably not, but

    He could get help from another, better source, if he'd just talk. Or ask. Yeah, right. Since when do either of those actions describe Dean Winchester?

    (Or, Dean opens his heart in a song that Castiel happens to hear)

    Summary

    “Hey Cas.” Dean cleared his throat and smiled up at the sky. He had started speaking to Cas every night, not sure if anyone was listening but finding some comfort in doing it anyway.
    “It’s me again. Still wondering when you’ll find the time to come see my new place. You’d like it. I have a popcorn machine now.” The front door creaked, and Dean turned to see Miracle pop his head out looking for him. With a whistle he let the dog know where he was, and Miracle lied down on the porch with his head on his paws, watching his human on top of the car. Dean chuckled and turned his face to the stars again. Miracle probably thought he had lost it, and if he was honest he did feel a little crazy.
    “I really wish you were here Cas. I miss you.”

    Summary

    **This is a Twist and Shout alternate ending starting after Dean leaves Cas. See notes in the story! If you haven't read Twist and Shout it makes more sense to read that first, although please make sure to heed the tags. If then, you return to this fic know that it is meant to start up after T & S chapter 7 and acts as an alternative to the rest of that artfully written but tragic fic.**

    Dean Winchester hated hospitals, but in June of 1976 he found himself in the waiting room of San Francisco General waiting for Bobby to be discharged when a gurney rolls in and a man Dean has never seen frantically gives the name of the critical patient to the staff at the desk.

    “Castiel, Castiel Novak.”

    Dean spilled his coffee as he stood straight up stopping himself from running to the desk. This couldn’t be real.

    This wasn’t happening. He must have heard wrong.

    And with that Dean found he couldn't escape the pull of his past.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester has just arrived back in the US after attending his brother's destination wedding. But, due to the delta variant, he needs to self isolate for ten days before he can go home. Hoping to save some money, he forgoes the expensive quarantine hotel and opts for a cheaper 'shared apartment' option. The kicker is, as a solo traveler, he gets assigned a roommate. But, Dean's got charm to spare and a tight bank account, so he's happy to share with a stranger for a while.

    It would suck if it wasn't a stranger but an ex though, right? The very ex that he's been trying and failing to forget for the past five years?

    The universe doesn't hate him that much, does it?

    (Spoiler alert: It does).

    -----

    TLDR: Cas and Dean are college exes that get stuck in isolation facility for ten days.

    Summary

    Now, honey, I don't wanna clip your wings
    But a time comes when two people should think of these things
    Having a home and a family
    Facing up to their responsibilities
    They say in the end, true love prevails
    But in the end, true love can't be some fairytale
    To say I'll make your dreams come true would be wrong
    But maybe, darling, I could help them along

    Summary

    When Cas almost died the day Jack was born and Dean was forced to retire, Dean thought his life was over. Being forced to slowly rebuild his life on an unexpected path and trying to be a normal human with his best friend and a newborn has been rough but it may just be the very thing he was looking for.

    Sam thought he knew what was happening in Dean’s life pretty well. They talk regularly but when he visits the house that Dean, Cas, and now toddler Jack have been living in for over two years, Sam wonders if things are what he thought during his week long vacation with Eileen. Sam thought it was just two best friends raising a kid but now...

    Maybe these two brothers can discover what happiness for the older Winchester brother and the fallen angel is through the highs and lows of this new, ordinary life. Hopefully, they all figure it out together through small deeds and acts of kindness and love.

    Summary

    Dean wasn't exactly sure how he'd ended up here.

    Three hours earlier, his evening had been perfectly ordinary. 

    No bars, no walls, no furious angels, certainly no horny douchebags.

    Okay, maybe one horny douchebag. But that had been Dean himself, so that was fine. 

    Yeah, so, it had been one of those evenings. When it was just too much, that feeling inside him, that nagging, longing, craving of something (someone) he didn't dare put a name to. It had been there for a very long time now, only getting stronger over the years the more Dean tried to push it down. And try to push it down, he did.

    Dean needed distraction. And he knew just where to find it.

    ~oOo~oOo~oOo~
    Or our typical Dean drags Cas to a bar for distraction, gets jealous and things happen.

    Summary

    Dean thought his feelings, especially towards Cas, were a secret. He also thought he was straight, too, though, so maybe his judgement isn't exactly the best about matters of the heart.

    Summary

    Everyone seems to know how Dean feels about Castiel. Since Dean figured it out for himself, he always just assumed that Castiel must know. Right?

    -

    “Did you tell him that you love him?”

    Dean shook his head.

    “I…” Dean swallowed and looked up at Sam. “I guess I thought that he knew that I loved him. I mean, he’s an angel, Sam. He can see souls, or read minds, or whatever. And I’ve told him that he’s family, that I need him. I thought he knew.”

    “Maybe,” Sam said, slowly, gently. “Maybe he needs to actually hear you say it.”

    Summary

    This story takes place after the I'm no Angel episode where Cas sleeps with the reaper April. Dean finds himself being tormented over it and has to come to grips with the fact that he's in love with his best friend. And what's even harder, he has to figure out how to tell him. But he's not sure he can.

    Season 9 episode 6 fix it.

    Also, Sam was never possessed by Gadriel in this fix it, so there's that. And April didn't actually kill Cas, she just tried to. But Sam and Dean got there first.
