    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a teenage boy, who is constantly on the road with his grumbling father John Winchester and his quirky, younger, brother Sam Winchester. They all move to be closer to a family friend by the name of Bobby Singer for a while. Moving into the way, way outskirts of the cities into an old, tar smelling house, in the middle of a broken, old town, in the middle of nowhere. He suddenly bumps into a boy who caught Dean's curiosities and attention as a whole.
    Castiel Novak has a knack for photography and an odd obsession with cameras, currently engulfed in Polaroids and bees. He teaches Dean the fun and the brokenness of small-town life and how things, people and social status form together there. Castiel gives a new meaning to life to Dean, all the while Dean teaches Castiel new ways of expressing his photography by being Castiel's ultimate and irrevocable inspiration.

    Summary

    Again, they move to a new town and Dean is so sick of always moving around and always being the new kid at school. And he wants something better for his little brother Sam. But their father can't manage to keep a job for longer than two months.
    No matter where they are, there is one thing that is always the same though. Dean's reputation as bad boy. It was never a problem that there were other bad boys, because Dean was always the worst. But now, he has keen competition – Castiel Novak. Covered in tattoos, drinking, smoking, doing drugs, breaking other people's noses... Novak's reputation precedes him. But that he's still different than every bad boy Dean's ever met is pretty clear though, from the very first moment they meet.

    Summary

    Castiel moves to a new town after divorcing his ex-husband. The house he'd planned to move right into is more of a fixer upper than he was led to believe. It's a good thing the woman working at the local motel knows a carpenter/mechanic who is more than happy to help him renovate his new home.

    Summary

    After all the angels fell (Supernatural Season 8 finale) and an inconclusive NASA investigation into the global meteor shower, a secret US task force came to the conclusion that angels walk among us. The task force determined they are powerful and therefore dangerous, a threat to the United States. Thus was born the American Council on Angel Affairs. Kept secret for four years, unknown even to the president, the ACAA devoted all their resources to finding out precisely how to control angels. They succeed, though not without casualties.

    In the aftermath of the 2017 U.S. Presidential inauguration, after running on an anti-immigrant, anti-angel platform and winning the presidency, the new president has now made it law that all angels in human vessels must display their wings at all times or risk public execution. The public is rewarded handsomely for turning in suspected angels, and they do so love a bloody execution.

    Although he'd successfully hidden again for years, Gabriel is captured, imprisoned, and sentenced to death. His only hope is Castiel, who would need to risk his own capture, along with two hunters, one of whom would like nothing more than to see Gabriel dead.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester suffers from psychological rope burn, the imaginary ties digging into him with every pull from his resentment, his guilt, and his desire to have a life for himself. His Uncle Bobby’s home care needs lead Dean to Cas Novak, an attractive bastard of a nurse who likes to push—his agenda, his luck, his belief that Dean and Bobby deserve more than what they’ve allowed themselves. As the men allow Cas to transform their lives, Dean feels a pull of a different sort—the pull of connection, of affection, of more. Dean wants to pull Cas closer...but just as Cas is good at pushing people toward their best selves, he’s also good at pushing away his own happiness. Can Dean and Cas push and pull their way to a life together?

    Summary

    Twenty-three years of head-over-heels, devastating devotion and love, love, love for the man with bright eyes and dark hair. Fourteen years of friends, best friends, of always together. One moment of rejection.

    Nine years of apart. Nine years of heartbreak, nine years of continents away, of not speaking, of no acknowledgement, no interaction, no closure, no peace. No happiness. Nine years of Dean’s life entering motions, going through them, constant, cold and mechanic, like clockwork. Nine years of alone.

    God. Nine years. A lot has changed. And yet Dean still loves Cas just the same. Even if his heart hurts all kinds of different.

     

    On the day of Jimmy Novak's funeral, Dean sees Cas for the first time in nine years. He adored Castiel the moment he met him, at only four years old. But after fourteen years of friendship destroyed by one moment of heartbreak, and after nine years of silence, Dean is convinced Cas will want nothing to do with him. And it's killing him.

    Summary

    It all started once Dean gave up his soul for his brother, Sam. Any deal made with the crossroads demons automatically draws attention. Castiel was assigned the first shift, to determine the importance of Dean’s life. He reported back to his superiors that it was a simple soul swap, nothing more. The surveillance ended, and Dean was ignored. In a year, he would die, dragged to hell by the hounds of Lilith.

    This was the first time Castiel lied.

    Summary

    Castiel Novak tries to be perfect. Since his parents died, and his sister became his dictator, it's what's required of him. But with an untreated anxiety disorder, physical/emotional abuse, and her boyfriend forcing himself onto Castiel - it's a little hard to maintain the ruse. It isn't until Dean Winchester takes an interest in him that he realizes he may not be able to fool everyone. At least not Dean.

    Dean Winchester doesn't give two shits about being perfect. Since his dad split, him and Sammy are free. Sure, money is tight, but he makes it work. He has art supplies, cigarettes, meaningless sex, and his grades are just above passing. Life is good. At least, until he catches sight of Castiel Novak. Suddenly, being the bad boy isn't so fun. He's too focused on the cute nerd at his art table, who shows up bruised, hungry, and exhausted much too often. Dean's protective instincts go up and before he knows it, his world is turning upside down.

    Will they be able to save each other, or will everything fall apart?

    Summary

    In 1888, soiled doves are dropping like flies in the Whitechapel district of London at the hands of a killer no one can identify. Castiel, Earl of Rothes, funds the investigation by two men from New York City - Sam and Dean Winchester - who have reputations for tracking down the most violent and difficult murderers. It looks like a normal murder investigation until Dean and Sam begin to realize something isn't right. Perhaps demons are not just biblical stories after all, and it might not be a human killer they’re hunting. Soon Dean and Castiel tumble into an affair of the utmost secrecy right under the Countess' nose, though it appears she has an affair of her own. And then as Dean starts questioning exactly why Castiel wants killer caught so badly, he realizes something’s not quite human about him or his cold wife either. Their marriage was designed to keep the peace between Heaven and Hell, but it’s all falling apart thanks to the demon known as Jack the Ripper. Can Sam and Dean hunt down the demon while keeping Castiel, Jessie, Jo, and their other London friends safe from harm?

    Summary

    "It was worse than the howling fury of the rack, this place. Worse than the shrieking pain, the endless cries of damned souls pleading for mercy they would not receive. It was worse than the blood smeared on his hands, seeping through his skin to stain his bones. Worse than the fire that peeled singed hide from flesh, the blades that cut down to the soul and stripped all that was human away.
    This was so much worse."

    A canon-divergent AU taking place directly after the close of Season 5, this fic finds Dean trying and failing to keep his promise to Sam to live a normal, happy life with Lisa after watching his brother dive into the pit. Drowning in guilt and grief, Dean is struggling to find a way to keep going when one lands on his doorstep. Is Dean finally losing it, or could Sam really be wandering around topside?
