    Summary

    Dean should’ve known the Empty wouldn’t let Cas escape unscathed. It's not that he wasn't prepared for something with the rescue going sideways; he had kinda been expecting Cas to tumble through the portal human, weak and tired, maybe traumatized from God knows whatever the Empty used to torture him. Dean didn't care, he'd take whatever he could get of Cas with open arms.

    He had not, however, anticipated returning with a suspiciously Cas-shaped child.

    Introducing Castiel, former Angel of the Lord, currently about three feet tall and a good few decades younger than his vessel’s correct age. Baby in a trench coat, indeed.

    Summary

    For the anniversary of Castiel's introduction. Have a finale fix-it!

    Castiel can’t see. He can’t move. He doesn’t know where he is. All he can do is listen to the radio. It plays music, sometimes. Other times, he can tune in to the prayers from his family.

    And maybe, somehow, the radio waves can help him get out.

    Summary

    Post-Episode 15x18 "Despair"

    After Castiel's confession, Dean carries a spark of hope telling him this can't be the end. This spark is the strongest weapon for Dean, Sam and Jack in this final war. The enemy is God. The battlefield is an Earth devoid of humans, a Hell in rebellion, and a Heaven betrayed by its creator. And the stakes are everything and everyone they have ever cared about.

    With an ear-shattering crash, more ground broke away from the edges of the chasm where the crack-lines had grown outwards. Where Dean was. Jack found himself screaming—not words, but a burst of pure terror manifesting as sound. He no longer struggled against Sam's grip, watched numbly as Dean crouched down and then leaped right as the ground crumbled away beneath his feet. Thick lumps of soil and uprooted plants plunged into the abyss below.

    Summary

    Of course he died. This was the easiest case they'd ever had. Everything was going so well it could only be paving the way for some huge cosmic punchline.

    Dean had thought dying would be the end to his story, not just another bump in the road.

    (A story following the events of Carry On. Rewriting the heaven scene, and following Team Free Will 2.0 in what comes next. Alternate Season 16 I suppose. Dean/Cas & Sam/Eileen)

    Summary

    When Dean and Cas were in Purgatory the first time, Dean rewrote his memories to take the blame for Cas’s death, because he couldn’t accept that Cas chose to leave him. What if he did the same thing with the Empty deal?

    Summary

    He hears a door open behind him, followed by a voice he’s not heard in years. “Dean Winchester,” it says with a note of amusement. “What, may I ask, brings you to my home?”

    Dean turns and looks the skinny, colorfully dressed man in front of him up and down. He means to make some sort of joke about the years not being kind – the irony of which would not be lost on this person, given that he’s immortal and has looked the same for the last 500-something years – but when he opens his mouth, all that comes out is a disbelieving “Magnus Bane?” The man smirks a little and Dean’s suspicion is confirmed. “Dude, I never thought I would see you again.”

    Summary

    “You saved me,” Cas says.

    Dean wants to crawl inside that low rumble of a voice and curl up there forever. Delirious, he says, “Yes.”

    Then Cas says, “You kissed me.”

    Dean swallows. “And?”

    Cas kisses him. Something burns at the hem of Dean’s shirt and his eyelashes flutter darker and it’s much, much later when he realizes he’d felt a spark from the lightbulbs blowing out.

    *

    Dean barely talks since Cas died. Even once they save him, it's too damn hard. In which fucked up coping styles leave both Cas and Dean convinced the other doesn't really love them. Cas thinks Dean is offering to sleep with him out of the goodness of his heart, or so Cas won't leave. Dean is trying to be less of a dick and ends up crying all the time. Cas just wants Dean to let him be the big spoon. They get to heal and be in love.

    Summary

    “I could bring her back,” Jack whispers. “I should bring her back.”

    He lowers his hand, turns a stricken gaze to Dean.

    “Who?” Dean asks. He thinks, Kelly. He thinks, Maggie. He thinks, absurdly, Charlie.

    “Emma,” Jack says.

    Summary

    Whatever rock song was playing, Dean wasn’t paying too much attention, faded out and the soft notes of some stupid feel-good song began.

    “La la la laaa”, Dean mocked, but the cynical smile was soon knocked off his face when the lyrics set in. 

    “I couldn’t utter my love when it counted, ah but I’m singing like a bird ‘bout it now. I couldn’t whisper when you needed it shouted, ah but I’m singing like a bird ‘bout it now”

    Dean frowned and turned off the volume. His own fault, really, for listening to some radio station instead of his trusted mixtapes. Except, it wasn’t like he could listen to those either, they reminded him too much of Cas. Dean spent a lot of time thinking about Cas; but doing so while driving really wasn’t the best of ideas. So, radio stations it was. But now even those weren’t safe anymore. And driving without music, in this instance, entirely defeated the purpose of driving in the first place.

    ---

    After the events of 15x18 Dean mourns Cas. He reflects on their relationship over the years and decides he has to save the angel.

    Summary

    Dean has always thought the idea of soulmates was kinda depressing.

    Yeah, it sounds great to have someone who was meant for you. It sounds great to think that you weren’t going to be alone. But the fact of the matter is, you don’t know who your soulmate is until the last time you hear their voice. That was what showed up tattooed somewhere on your body.

    Dean’s words? The last thing his soulmate would ever say to him?

    Goodbye, Dean.

    Summary

    Summary

    "Dean,” Cas says again, just to say it, to feel the shape of it in his mouth. “Angels experience time a bit differently than humans do. We...sometimes something can happen to us that are so profound we feel it resonate within us even before it happened to us at all. Dean, I have loved you from the moment of my creation, millions of years ago."
