    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

    The world is empty. Castiel’s sacrifice has left them reeling. The aftermath of Jack’s detonation creates something in him that he doesn’t understand. Dean cedes all leadership to Sam, lost in the numb haze of guilt and grief. Sam’s renewed determination carries them all, and he refuses to accept any outcome that isn’t the world put to rights and his family, all of them, together again.

    The three of them aren’t all that’s left, however; Michael finds that his personal freedom and refusal to fight come at too high a cost. Suppressed voices fight to be heard, and Death’s absence creates a unique if morbid opportunity.

    Earth is a necropolis, Heaven is collapsing in on itself, and victory over Chuck won’t be enough to repair a crumbling universe, nor will returning to old regimes be enough to prevent a free world from repeating its mistakes. The actions and decisions determining the shape of reality can no longer be restricted to a road that always leads to the Winchesters.

    I love you.

    Goodbye, Dean.

    He collapses on the floor, exhausted and grieving.

    Summary

    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.

    Post-Episode 15x18 "Despair"

    After Castiel's confession, Dean carries a spark of hope that tells him this can't be the end. This spark is Dean, Sam and Jack's strongest weapon in the 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.

    Summary

    Dean figures that if Bert and Ernie can be... "Bert and Ernie" and not share a bed, then he and Cas should be able to figure this out.

    When Cas is brought back from the Empty, Dean and Cas think that, with a little understanding, maybe the confession doesn't have to change much.

    Much changes anyways.

    Or: Dean and Cas try for a queerplatonic relationship but, somewhere along the way, they forget the platonic part.

    Summary

    Castiel wakes up next to the ocean with his pick-up truck, three PB&J's, and a colorful letter from Jack. Apparently, he's been saved from the Empty. He doesn't know how or why, but all he knows is that Dean and Sam are completing a job in Malibu five hours away, and he has to see them immediately. And most importantly, he has to talk to Dean.

    Dean is completing a hunt in California when he receives a call from Cas, of all people. Castiel, who he hasn't seen in six months ever since the Empty took him away. Cas, his best friend (maybe more) who he's been grieving and is now suddenly on the phone with him, talking casually as if that huge love confession didn't happen. Apparently, he's been saved from the Empty. He doesn't know how or why, but all he knows is that Castiel is three hours away and he's going to see him soon. In the flesh. And he's pretty sure he's about to pass out.

    This is a story spanning 1674 miles and five states. Along the way, there are some much needed conversations.

    Summary

    Going home. Home. The word bounces around his skull, warm and welcoming. He looks back up at Dean, at that face he’d memorized long ago.

    “Yeah, home,” Dean says. “Let’s go.” He tugs on Cas’ hand, and Cas steps forward –

    Into empty space.

    Summary

    Dean struggles after Cas is taken by the Empty and Dean wonders how long he can hold out. Cas comes back right before things take a turn for the worse.

    Sneaky peak:

    Cas pulled Dean up to a stand and wrapped his arms around his shoulders, bringing him into a tight embrace. Cas was still unsure what he was allowed to do with Dean, since that  conversation had not been brought up yet, but he thought he was very entitled to a hug right now. Dean hugged him back and Cas couldn't stop the smile from spreading across his face. Though as if reading his mind, Dean spoke softly.

    "You can have me. You have me. Thank you for coming back to me Cas." 

    "Ill always come back to you, Dean"

    Summary

    The world is saved, everyone is back, Chuck is powerless, and their kid, their son, Jack is God. So, why does is feel like the world is ending.

    Based on the theory that Dean didn’t react to Cas’s confession to keep Cas from being happy and getting taken by the Empty. This is the fall out from that.

    Summary

    Being dragged out of the Empty did a number on Castiel’s wings, but Dean is there to help him.

     Castiel can perform ‘parlour tricks’, heal small nicks and cuts, hear prayers and sense emotions in their broadest sense. He is still stronger than a human, but he can no longer lay waste to their foes with the touch of his palm. He still has his wings but they are as useless as they have been for years.

    Summary

    Have you or your loved ones wanted TFW to have therapy? Are you unsatisfied with the ending of Supernatural? Well, this is the fanfic for you. Enjoy.

    We pick up right where we left off. Dean, Sam, and Castiel are in Heaven. It IS heaven, right? Paradise?

    Spoilers, they don't stay there for long. Basically, the fix-it to end all fix-its, an entire season of typical episodes with additional plot and a bunch of fluff. Eventually, we get there, but it takes a while. They take go hunting, they have therapy, they get their happy ending, though it takes a while.

    Episodes may come once a week or once every two weeks but don't count on it :/ ;D

    Written in script format. I highly recommend you imagine it as if it were actually playing, and definitely listen to all the music as the scenes play out.
