    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. A few flashbacks will have some uncomfortable/abusive moments between Dean and John. Alcoholism. Symptoms of PTSD and depression, but no one dies or commits acts of self harm.
    -
    This takes place circa season 4 or 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

    Written for Suptober Day 16- Delightful D-Bags

    Dean Winchester is a delight, delightful douchebag, one that somehow gets roped into making the trip to IKEA. Cas is thrilled to finally bring his dreams of making the bunker homey to life. Jack gets what he wants and what he wants is an insane amount of food and maybe a ginormous teddy bear. Sam and Eileen just need them to pick up the crib they ordered. Will Dean and Cas pass the ultimate relationship test of assembling IKEA furniture?

    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

    Just before six o’clock in the morning, as he’s watching the sun rise, Dean comes to the startling realization that there is no more God to condemn him. There’s no John to look at him like he’s too shameful to know. There’s nothing– no one to tell him it’s wrong. And like, he already knew that. For a while, he’s known that. But he’d never sat in it long enough to actually understand what it all meant.

    He’s free.

    For the first time in his life, he’s free.

    And he doesn’t know what to do with that.

    Summary

    A handsome prince. A moonlit lake. A beautiful pr-... another handsome prince, rather (this is an open minded story, after all) cursed to spend each day as a swan until true love will set him free. A tale as old as time. A romance for the ages.

    Or that’s the idea, but when Prince Dean of Lawrence is the would-be rescuer, fairy-tales go off the rails more times than not.

    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

    Castiel made dying for Dean Winchester look easy.

    Dean knows how to die for someone. Dean knows how to lay down his life for those he cares about, to say yes in their place, to sacrifice himself in the moment to save the day. To save someone. To save Sam, Mary, John, Jack.

    Cas.

    And for all his knowledge about how to die, he has. While memories of the Pit remain locked in a distant corner of his mind, he’ll never forget the sacrifice he made for Sam, for the good of the world. Willingly. Happily. Dean remembers every death. How each one he welcomed if it made the difference, saved family, people. Dean Winchester would sacrifice himself ten times over for family, or the world, if it meant they would make it through in his stead. Dying for someone was easy to Dean.

    But Dean Winchester didn’t know how to be saved. Not when Sam offered up his life, not when anyone else did. Dean didn’t know how to keep on living so that sacrifice wasn’t all for nothing. How in the hell is he supposed to do that? To accept that?

    He doesn't.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester was a pretty normal guy until the car accident that changed his life.
    Now, with a voice in his head that he isn't so sure is just a voice, a little brother who is way too smart for his own good, and a new friend whose eyes are just a little too blue, Dean will have to navigate the changes in his life. Oh, and he's in the middle of a gang war.

    Oh joy.

    [Loosely based off of the Ghost Rider character on Marvel's Agents of Shield.]

    Summary

    Surprise surprise, Cas is back from the Empty, and chaos ensues inside of Dean's heart (obviously). The gang is back together, Chuck's gone forever, there's a baby who should be sitting atop Heaven's Throne but prefers to eat cereal sitting on his highchair, Claire and Kaia are an established couple, Jody and Donna as well, Eileen and Sam are going strong, Dean is... Alive. And very trans (this is relevant to the plot I promise). TFW 2.0 hasn't retired yet, so they decide to take on a random case, not expecting too much trouble. Not-spoiler alert: it doth not go as planned.

    “I was singing this refrain
    In nineteen three, not knowing my
    Love and phoenix were the same
    And if they fled the evening sky
    They were reborn when morning came

    One night of London fog and flame
    A ne’er do well resembling my
    Love was passing: up he came
    And showed me such a knowing eye
    It made me lower mine in shame

    With that young tough I had to go
    Who hands in pockets took his ways
    Whistling through the parted row
    Of tenements as Red Sea waves
    He the Hebrews, I Pharaoh […]”

    Summary

    When Dean is driving his impala with the food for Sam and himself, he found a strange boy by himself.

    The boy named David is weirdly optimistic and mostly obedient which freak both brothers out. They already tested holy water, silver and all on him but it didn’t affect the strange boy in any way.

    Dean assumes that David was most likely abandoned and neglected by his own parents since the boy will follow him everywhere and try to keep him in his sight…

    But when Castiel set his eyes on David, he along with other angels immediately recommends that brothers destroy that “manmade abomination”.

    Things get worst when David realizes monsters, witches, ghosts, demons & angels are real...while Dean is feeling conflicted on this childlike robot and is thinking about giving the robo-kid back to the creator...

    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.
