    Summary

    It's 1959, the war has been over for fourteen years and Dean Winchester survived it; he is now the owner of The Winchester Tavern, which is his pride and joy.
    Life is going along as normal, when Dean suddenly notices a new employee at the bakery across the street from his bar. He is a handsome man with striking blue eyes and black tousled hair, and Dean Winchester thinks that the stranger might just be his undoing.
    Castiel's life has been pretty rough, from being drafted to serve during the war to just generally trying to keep himself clothed and fed. When Cas moves to Lawrence Kansas to work in a bakery, he doesn't expect to have eyes for the man who works at the bar across the street; and Cas knows that his chances of the other man liking him too are slim to zero.

    Summary

    During the summer of 1975, a string of young men keep turning up dead in the city of Lawrence, Kansas. All within walking distance from one another. All frequenters of the same local nightclub. All appearing peacefully asleep in their beds save for the brutal marks of strangulation encircling their throats. It seems to be the work of a man the local news stations are calling the ‘Sleepytime Strangler’ – a nickname Castiel loathes – but the body count is up to eight with no signs of being caught.

    Castiel begins to feel like it’s all just a little too easy.

    Out one night at his usual hunting ground, he finds the challenge he’s been searching for in a attractive stranger named Dean, but before he can make his move, Dean’s gone and someone else has to take his place. Over the coming weeks, he can’t stop thinking about him: about the one that got away. And as it happens, the man from across the bar is relatively easy to hunt down, but what he doesn’t account for are the feelings he begins to develop for him or the fact that Dean Winchester has secrets of his own.

    Summary

    “Dean didn’t look like your average classical pianist. No, with his beefy shoulders, plaid shirt, and ripped jeans, he looked more like the typical college guitar guy who played music no one wanted to hear. In truth, Dean could play guitar, but that was mostly a hobby. His true passion was the piano. You could say it ran in the family.”

    Summary

    This is a month long challenge wherein I will endeavor to write something every day for a month. The prompt is to write a ficlet based on or inspired by the first song that comes on shuffle. So in all probability each chapter will be a stand-alone, unless a storyline really grabs me.
    Heed the tags, because I have literally no idea where this is going. I will try to be diligent in updating them with every new story.
    This is the first thing I've ever posted on AO3 so comments and constructive criticism are much appreciated!

    Summary

    So sometimes Dean will come home and Castiel will be dressed in heels and silk, with his arms folded and one eyebrow raised. It doesn't make him any less of a man, in fact, Dean would say it makes him more of one.

    Summary

    Dean sees a lot of people come and go. He and Charlie are running a soup kitchen / shelter after all. He always feels compassion but he also always respects the boundaries he and Charlie have set for their private lives. Always, that is, until one winter night, a quiet man with dark hair and blue eyes comes in, wearing nothing warmer than a hoodie and obviously intent on going back out into the cold.

    Summary

    "You either wait in line like the rest of us or you book an appointment with the Queen.”

    Then the guy turns around, making it increasingly harder for Dean to hold his argument. He’s a few inches shorter than Goliath, but like hell if he isn’t downright gorgeous. Like Gadreel, he has a jaw as square as most the people in the room, only his is crawling with little brown gummy worms and his body is equally as fit. His eyes are a deeper blue than Gadreel’s, though, like the sky when a storm’s brewing.

    His white, gummy smile is a booby trap Dean nearly falls in as he says, “What’re you gonna do about it?”

    Summary

    It was as he held the last note that he heard a scritching sound coming from his doorway. Dean scraped back his piano bench to investigate, and his heart dropped at the sight of a piece of paper on the ground.

    A noise complaint, most likely.

    He sighed and picked it up, but his eyes widened at the neat, careful cursive that read: A humble request to the pianist: Lieberstraum no. 3 in A flat.

    Summary

    Cas is a writer, not a builder.

    Sure, he builds the foundation on which his characters grow on, the stories they tell, the adventures they embark on, but that required months of mental labor, not physical.

    No, physical labor required left-brain thinking—or any side of the brain, for that matter. Not someone who’s going to dredge up the long-forgotten pathway to China on the side of the road with a big silver spoon and leave it there for weeks on end.

    Or the one where Cas is peeved and a hot construction worker with a short temper does him no favours.

    Summary

    This place is unlike any he's been before. The people are rude, the city is loud, and if it weren't for Sam getting his Law degree, he would've left ages ago. That is until he hears a tune being whistled that takes him back to a warmer, happier place. But why does this guy keep whistling? Who is the strange "Whistler"? And why can't Dean get enough of him?

    Summary

    Dean was still unsure about dating.

    It wasn’t that he was ashamed - it was just that, he knew, realistically, if he put it out there that he was in a chair, he wouldn’t get any bites. Most people were looking for something easier, and in their minds, wheelchairs just didn’t equate to ‘easy.'
