    Summary

    But they are all wishes, and Dean knows that there are handful of things in this universe that he wants, but just cannot have. But he dare not put a name to them. To admit it would be to face the reality of his desires, and that is just not something that Dean deserves. Not in this world. Not in this lifetime.

    Any time that he has something worth keeping around, he needs to make sure it is not for his sake. Because whenever Dean gets even a taste of what happiness could be like, it is quickly taken away from under him.

    -

    AKA where Cas and Dean have near the exact same problems which is why s15 ended the way it did. Lmao :))))
    Takes place from the end of season 13x23 when Michael possesses Dean and continues on, skipping through Season 14. If I make it to the end of s14, then I may as well continue it into s15.

    Summary

    Breathe, Dean told himself, breathe. Seven in, hold, seven out. Seven in, hold, seven out. Seven in…...

    Dean thought of the sea. He’d met Cas on the Pacific shore once, on a day where the sun was dim, and the gray clouds blotted the sky. Cas had told him it was the only place they wouldn’t be overheard. He’d found the angel beside the sea-rotten wood of a fallen tree, watching a baby sea turtle scramble helplessly towards the sea. He hadn’t helped. Simply observed.
    That was a long time ago. Dean had barely known Cas back then. It’d made him so confused, to watch the angel stand so still and look out towards the sea. It was something so human, but looked so wrong when done by something who didn’t sway and dance with the sea breeze in the way only a human could. It’d made him angry.

    Maybe it’d made Cas angry, too. What Dean had failed to realize back then, and many moments afterwards, was that Castiel was a living tangle of the threads of anger and desire and love, unable and forbidden from lamenting what could and couldn’t be. On that beach, they’d both been the same.

    ------

    Dean can't leave Cas alone. Not for anything.

    Summary

    Gabriel remembers dying, his brother’s blade burying itself into his chest, the fierce pull into nothingness, into the Empty. He hadn’t really known what would happen next. Sure Castiel had yammered away about the Empty and how he had been killed by Lucifer and then resurrected. It’s not that he didn’t believe Castiel, but it was one thing to hear a story and another to live it. Or not live since he was dead.

    Summary

    After Castiel is dragged away to the empty, Dean flees the bunker and everything he knows. He takes a job as a live-in ranch worker. For a while, it seems like a peaceful place to be alone with his thoughts and battle his demons, but the horror that has plagued him all his life is never far behind. What seeds that are sown over a smoky summer will soon be reaped.
    "I love him" is obsession, a thought doing flips in his brain. It’s a gargoyle, spewing rainwater; ugly to deflect ugly. That, or maybe keep-your-angels-close-and-your-demons-closer; let’s keep the devils where we can see them. I love him is the curse he tries to keep at bay, shivering in the night, curled in a heap on a camping mattress, covered in army issue wool blankets in Jody’s spare bedroom.

    Summary

    On a drive out of Chicago, the boys stop at an old familiar barn on the outskirts of Pontiac, Illinois. Ideally, it'd bring back fond memories. But for Cas, he's still struggling with the last memory he had of the place.

    Summary

    “Who is Castiel?” The words burst out of his mouth before he could stop them and Jack froze. There was something decidedly off about him and had been ever since Dean arrived here in Heaven. Dean could tell immediately that the question unnerved the figure wearing Jack's face, in a way that he had never seen before. For a moment, not-Jack looked…uncertain, maybe even afraid. It was then that Dean knew. This was not Jack. There was no way that this was Jack.

    Not-Jack snapped back to in an instant, promptly ignoring the question. “Goodbye Dean,” the figure wearing Jack’s face said. Hands gripped Dean’s arms in vise-like grips, dragging him backwards through the white hallways. Under any other circumstance, Dean would have fought back, but he couldn't, not through the torrent of confusion and thoughts pouring through his mind.

    This wasn’t Heaven at all. Maybe it was meant to be, but if it was a place where he was trapped, where the people he loved weren’t safe, it was no Heaven to Dean Winchester.

    Summary

    This was the moment when their lives were supposed to begin, and instead it was all over before it even started.

    Dean has lost track of time, it could be days, weeks or months since they defeated Chuck. He doesn't know, and he doesn't care.

    Sam was patient at first, sat by his side in bed and talked softly, helped him to the bathroom when Dean was too drunk to stand on his own two feet, and brought him water to dilute the alcohol in his bloodstream.

    When that didn't help, he became desperate, he yelled at him, anything to get some kind of reaction. Now it's the silent treatment, the last thing Sam said was that he won't be around to see Dean slowly kill himself.

    And that's fine, he shouldn't, because everyone Dean loves and cares about gets killed or worse.

    Summary

    He opens his mouth to ask what he wants to know, but falters, terrified of the answer. Instead he tells Death that Dean is not in Heaven or Hell or Purgatory. That’s true, she says, I brought him to the one place he’ll never leave and you can never enter.

    Summary

    “Just let me see him. I never even got to say goodbye, I-I didn’t get to say it back, you have to let me say it back, you have to, I—”

    “Dean.”

    And his heart stops, because the voice isn’t right, the pitch isn’t the same, but the cadence is unmistakable. Reverence, adoration, devotion. Holy, holy, holy. There’s only one being in the whole world, in the entire universe that says his name like that.
