    Summary

    It’s hard to get someone back from the empty. It’s even harder to get them back in one piece.

    Dean had expected a lot of things. He’d been prepared to deal with them, of thought he had been. The one thing Dean hadn’t been prepared for, was for Cas’ brain to break.

    Summary

    That finale really pissed a lot of us off. I'm here to try and fix it from where it went wrong, in my opinion, episode 18.

    If these things fired you up: Castiel dying without hearing anyone loved him, not seeing anyone after they were snapped back, Jack leaving, Dean not mentioning Cas's confession to Sam, HIM DYING ON A NAIL, AND HIS HEAVEN BEING A CAR, Eileen being nonexistent, Sam's crappy wig, and the impala left to collect dust in a garage?!?

    I think you'll like this fix-it fic.

    Summary

    It's not like Castiel expected to be sent back to 2001 when the Empty said it would send him back. Sure, 19 years in the past with the man he confessed his love to will end great. Right? They can do this.

     

     

    Tile inspiration (because everyone needs to hear this song I love it so much): Please Excuse This Funk Up by Infectious Grooves

    Edit: 2003 was changed to 2001 for plot and timeline reasons. I am such an idiot and I need sleep.

    Summary

    He is officially back in the saddle, rumbling down the road with a happy Cas riding shotgun. Dean lowers the sun visor, turns up the tunes, and floors it.

    Summary

    Dean stares at Castiel as he speaks, hearing but not listening to his speech, and his chest feels like it's on fire. He loves him. He loves him. And it's a goodbye and that's not good enough.

    So he feels something warm and soft and light around his soul, and he pulls and clings to the angel for which he's willing to give his heart and life.

    Because if they go down, they go down together.
    ----------------
    OR yet another Time-Travel Fix It Fic because the confession scene and the ending of SPN sucked and I'm taking my feelings out on this. Also, my hatred of John Winchester and the shit he put the boys through. This is NOT a John-friendly fic, at all.

    Summary

    To say Dean was not impressed with Castiel's admission and subsequent death was an understatement. He was Very Not Impressed. With his faithful brother at his side, he sets out to return Cas to the realm of the living - and all the trouble that comes right in the wake of that decision sets in motion a plan that had long been laying dormant in the mind of someone that could ultimately be a worse Big Bad than Chuck could ever hoped to have been.

    With old faces popping up to help in a new war and pending apocalypse, Dean and Cas must face three separate fronts in a battle long in the coming. Someone's pissed - and everyone will pay. But the Winchesters have allies - some in places they never thought to look.

    Summary

    It's been who knows how many weeks or months or years since Dean Winchester has gone to Heaven. Who the hell knows, even with the new boss, time is funky. So is the mojo that's making things appear and/or get added.

    Who cares, though. Dean is tired of it. Of all of it.

    He's showed up and yeah, maybe he'll see some people he wants to see, except he's not seein' everyone he wants to see. But that's not the point, he tells himself; it doesn't matter - the point is he's friggin tired of this and he wants OUT.

    But he's always been pretty good at pushing things away, not to mention adept at lying to himself.

    (Or Dean Winchester would not -and does not- accept dying and going to Heaven, so this is him making every attempt at busting out and getting back down to life on Earth.

    He thought he was all right with going out like this, or at least always knew he would. But he isn't.)

    Summary

    It’s sort of hilarious that Dean ever thought that he could not have this. That he was ever dumb enough to think that he could pass this up, with the option out there in the universe.

    (In which they continue to work on that domestic-bliss thing).

    Summary

    It's Thanksgiving and while Dean's never been completely normal about holidays, he thinks he can handle a few speeches.

    But then, Cas stands up.

    And it’s hard to describe the cold wash of fear that overtakes Dean’s body.

    Cas getting up to speak—in the same clothes he wears every damn day—should not be a big deal. But there’s a familiar nervousness and earnestness on his face that Dean has only seen briefly before. (“You know, ever since we met and ever since I pulled you out of Hell, knowing you has changed me. Because you cared, I cared. I cared about you. I cared about Sam. I cared about Jack. I cared about the whole world because of you.”) And suddenly, the last thing that Dean wants to hear is what Cas is happy about.

    Black ink spilled into the corners of the bedroom. Cas wrapped the cotton blanket more tightly around his shoulders and shook. And shook.

    Summary

    He's been hunting for a long time, longer than most, and has seen more than his fair share of apocalypses. Dean's exhausted, and now that he's writing his own story, he finds himself wanting that apple pie life more and more. He wants his own house, outside of the bunker. Maybe a job, one that doesn't involve killing things. Dean wants a life, he's waited forty-five years for it and it scares him more than anything. Dean wants a life and he knows exactly who he wants to share it with.

    Which brings him here, sitting in some seedy bar in Kansas with shitty beer.

    Summary

    What if the sigil Cas had painted against the door had been just a little stronger? What if they'd had just a little bit more time?

    What if Dean had caught on, and he'd refused to watch Cas go?

    With Death battering down the door and Dean becoming evermore anxious about their impending doom, Castiel has a choice to make…

    Summary

    Post-confession, Castiel is enjoying his reinstated powers, but finds that unfortunately, healing Dean’s longstanding trauma is not a simple matter of applying angel mojo, sex, or differential equations.

    --

    Around 10k of Dean/Cas getting together then the rest is them bickering and fumbling their way through a relationship.
