    Summary

    After S15e03, while on the run from his grief, Castiel drained the last of his grace to save a stranger's life. He became human and settled down in Boise ID, and adapted relatively well to human life. One of Castiel's new human experience was a symbolic ritual, which worked as intended to bring him some peace of mind. When he encountered Lilith and was killed by her, the supernatural layer of the ritual was activated, and it restored him to a fully powered Seraph. However this newly restored power only made Dean more hostile and suspicious of him. What will Castiel have to overcome to continue his fight for the universe and to defeat Chuck?

    Alternate Season 15 after "the Rupture", runs parallel to cannon until the end of "Gimme Shelter" (when Jack revealed to Cas he was to become a suicide bomber), then completely divergent. Half of the fic is after that divergence.
    I do not own anything.

    Summary

    He sat there in silence, the last moments of Dean swirling in his mind. Time seemed to warp and fold. He did not know if it had been minutes, hours, or days. The flat blackness around him wobbled somewhere to his right. A thin, waspy voice crawled into his ears.

    "Why are you so… bright?" it said.

    Castiel turned his head slightly, but it seemed futile to try and pinpoint the source of the voice. He knew what it was, and that it was both everywhere and nowhere. He did not, however, know what it meant. A faint shape formed inches from his eyes. It looked vaguely like a featureless face, and it tilted its head like a strange, slow bird. He blinked at it. He did not have the energy to respond. He was exhausted by the despair in his bones, resting heavy in his limbs.

    "There are not supposed to be souls here," the Empty said.

    (The Empty rejects Castiel. He is a wreck. So is Dean.)

    Summary

    Picking up right after 15x18 “Despair” and ignoring everything after (obviously), the Winchester brothers have a crisis to fix, unfortunately, Dean would rather crawl into a bottle than deal with Chuck’s punishment or, even worse, the last words of his best friend and what they strongly implied. Dean is faced with one undeniable truth: how does he want to live his life from here on out? More importantly, who does he want to live it with?

    One full of longing love, another full of hateful threats.

    Summary

    “Is it you?”

    Cas doesn’t look like how he looked when he died. Dean remembers the leviathan, the sludgy crawl of black up his veins before he started to dissolve. He looks kind of like that, and the edges of the whites of his eyes are starting to grow dull and dark and sick with it. “I don’t know,” Cas says.


    The Empty has found its worst nightmare yet. When this is over, these memories will engrave themselves along the hollow, waning remains of his grace, and it will be as if these moments exist in perpetuity, wrenched from time’s linearity. They will haunt him as everything haunts him.

    Summary

    Post-Defeat of Chuck in Inherit the Earth, Jack is off to become the new God, and the Winchesters are left to pick up the pieces. Only Jack's unannounced changes to the universe have Sam and Dean apparently unemployed and still stumped as to how to rescue Cas
    ...
    Sam doesn’t put up much of a fight, he flips the laptop back open and Dean sees himself sitting on the floor, in the dungeon and-oh God the Dean on the floor is openly sobbing. Which means Sam already saw-
    Dean slams the laptop closed, “Why are you watching that?”
    “I just thought-” Sam doesn’t finish his sentence, starts a different one. “I’m so sorry, Dean.”
    “Don’t,” Dean pleads, “Don’t be sorry. We’re going to fix this. You and me and Jack, we are going to get him back.”
    Sam nods, wiping at his face, “Yeah. Of course we are. We will.”
    Dean hates how much his voice shakes when he asks, “You really watched-?”
    “Sorry,” Sam says, and this time he finishes the sentence, “I thought if I just saw The Empty again I might see something I was missing.”
    “Did you?”
    “Yes.” Sam doesn’t sound like he’s talking about a solution to the Cas problem. And sure enough, “I saw Cas. And for the first time in a long time, I saw you.”
