    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

    Surviving the war had been one of the hardest things Dean had ever done. Coming home from the war is proving to be even harder. Lost and adrift, he feels like he's drowning. When he happens upon a horse farm looking for help it might just be the lifeline he's been looking for.

    When Cas meets the new farm hand he sees the same injured look in those eyes he's seen time and again in the horses he's rescued. Can he break through to Dean the way he has with his horses? Teach him to trust, to surrender, to connect. Can he break down Dean's defenses without destroying his own? Maybe with a little hope and a little rope they can find a way through together.

    Summary

    AU -
    Dean is a Veteran of the Vietnam war and after years of being imprisoned he finally comes back home to Castiel right before Christmas, whom he lived together with before he got drafted four years ago.

    What at first doesn't seem too difficult soon turns into something close to a nightmare for Cas, one that Dean just escaped

    Summary

    People say it all the time, memories last forever.

    Little moments, lost in years, resurface without a warning, they just need something to trigger them. Something stupid, a song, how the light shines in that particularly way, a specific order of words , the smell of that special day, glimpses of past faces , ghosts.
    People use to say that bad memories stay with us forever, lurking in the darkest corners of our heart, but they are wrong. You can always escape bad memories , you don’t want them, your mind protects you from them, but, good memories…..the good memories are the ones that your heart wants to indulge in, a way to hold on to the things you love, the things that made you happy…and the things you never thought you’d lose .

    Good memories are the ones that drive you insane.

    Summary

    Anna looks at him sympathetically from her spot beside him. “You guys were just kids,” she murmurs, and the pity in her voice irks Castiel.

    “Yes, we were. And look how that turned out. I’m 28 years old and already divorced.” He wishes he didn’t sound so bitter. It would help, maybe, if he felt less like a giant cliché, a walking billboard that said Don’t Marry Your High School Sweetheart!

    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!
