    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a busy guy. He has a lot going on. There’s college to not flunk out of, his friends to take care of, a little brother fresh out of rehab who needs support and parents who can’t take it all on without him. And he’s happy to help. It’s literally his purpose in life. So, if he finds something he wants just for himself, that’s not something that he has the time for. He has to put his family first.

    But if the something he wants is actually a someone, that can be a lot harder to ignore.

    Summary

    When Dean and Cas were in Purgatory the first time, Dean rewrote his memories to take the blame for Cas’s death, because he couldn’t accept that Cas chose to leave him. What if he did the same thing with the Empty deal?

    Summary

    While on a case, Castiel encounters a 'touch healer' who claims that humans need eight hugs a day to be happy and healthy. She also says it's a matter of life and death, which of course makes the angel very concerned for his own touch-starved hunter. Is Dean slowly dying?

    Better not take any chances. Eight hugs a day? Done.

    Operation Hug Dean is in motion.

    Summary

    *SPOILERS FOR SEASON 15!!!!!*
    (Spoilers for some of the previous seasons as well)
    (Spoilers for the ending of episode 13 of season 15 but not anything further than that!!!)

    Dean and Jack Fix-It Fanfic- That's it; that's the fic!

    “Look,” Dean starts but stops when it only seems to make things worse. Words have never really been his strong suit. But he knows actions. He knows how to do the little things. He knows how to protect, how to buy dinner after a crap day, how to fix Cas’ damn tie or clap Sam’s shoulder in passing...He knows how to half ass apologies and how to pretend things are fine and move on...He doesn’t know how to do the big things. He doesn’t know how to fix this, but he knows it takes more than a band-aid or two to fix something that has shattered.
    But this is all he can do now, just try to pick up the pieces and make things right with Jack.

    Summary

    “You saved me,” Cas says.

    Dean wants to crawl inside that low rumble of a voice and curl up there forever. Delirious, he says, “Yes.”

    Then Cas says, “You kissed me.”

    Dean swallows. “And?”

    Cas kisses him. Something burns at the hem of Dean’s shirt and his eyelashes flutter darker and it’s much, much later when he realizes he’d felt a spark from the lightbulbs blowing out.

    *

    Dean barely talks since Cas died. Even once they save him, it's too damn hard. In which fucked up coping styles leave both Cas and Dean convinced the other doesn't really love them. Cas thinks Dean is offering to sleep with him out of the goodness of his heart, or so Cas won't leave. Dean is trying to be less of a dick and ends up crying all the time. Cas just wants Dean to let him be the big spoon. They get to heal and be in love.

    Summary

    At some point, Castiel was subjected to watching the movie Shrek. He distinctly remembers the line about onions and layers, and he remembers reflecting that humans have layers like onions too.

    While Dean is not an ogre by any means—Castiel has met ogres before, and he doesn’t think much of them—it can certainly be said that Dean has layers like an onion. Or perhaps like a tree, an analogy that feels more appropriate.

    Whether Dean is like an ogre, an onion, a tree, or something else entirely, the point is that he has layers. He has different parts of himself, pieces of his beautiful personality that he chooses to show the world at different times. Castiel is blessed to say that he gets the honor of seeing all of them.

    While Dean’s moods change on a daily basis—from sexy and confident, to soft and needy, to angry and rebellious—his baseline never shifts. Dean will always be Castiel’s sweet, cuddly submissive, even if it takes a harsh spanking and some sharp correction to bring him out of hiding. Castiel can tell that Dean’s softer, sweeter side is closer to the surface tonight, though.

    It seems a gentle scene is in order.

    Summary

    This—Dean thinks—this is where he wants to be. 

    It’s a recurring thought. One that he thinks of when he and Cas argue as they climb down the stairs after a hunt, snapping at each other depending on who the man of the day was, reckless enough to almost die, while Sam trails them, chortling like a dying hyena. They would all be aching to the bone, but Sam would bully Cas into ordering a salad along with whatever animal he’s ingesting for the night—because he fought and lost that battle with Dean a long time ago—and Cas would stuff his Romaine in the french fry bag when Sam’s not looking, and Dean would think. He would look at this little unit of theirs, held together by the knowledge that any night could be their last, and Dean would think how every fight is worth it if it means he can come home to this.

    Summary

    “We have a special on our queen bed available if you book more than two nights, or are you two just passing through?"

    A queen.  A-fuckin’-mazing, Dean thought.  Add the smart-aleck at the Motel 6 to the list now too.  He would be the 4th person that day that assumed he and Castiel were…

    Dean’s shoulders tensed, his hackles raised as a defense. Was it him? Some sort of energy or abstract, uncontrollable trait Dean possessed that had everyone around him assuming his sexuality? Was there a post-it stuck to his back that said, “Hey! I’m banging Cas”?

    Summary

    This is where, when, maybe, Castiel should run again, run forever. While he can still beg to be redeemed by Heaven. While he can still pretend he wants to be forgiven. While he can still pretend that he wouldn’t fall from grace, over and over, fall for eternity, for Dean Winchester.

    (Takes place when Castiel comes back from Purgatory, in between 08x07 A Little Slice of Kevin and 08x08 Hunter Heroici)

    Summary

    Set in the winter of 2005, you and Dean are mid-way through an exhausting and messy hunt when you're forced to stop for the night by a snowstorm. A phone call with John and a freezing motel room do nothing to help either of you, but you're able to make it through with a little comfort from each other.

    Summary

    “I miss him,” Dean said. He didn’t mean to say it, but man was it true.
    “Dean,” Eileen said, reaching out again. and Dean curled into himself. He found himself wishing that he was dead, or somewhere far away. But Eileen didn’t tease him. She never teased about the things that mattered. “We miss him too, but he wouldn’t want this.”
    She gestured to his room, and Dean followed the motion of her hands as it swept over the bloody coat, the empty bottles littering the floor, the hole in the wall where he had punched it in a fit of drunken rage. The smell of uneaten food and despair filled the room. Dean rubbed at his face and felt the scratch of his neglected facial hair. How long had it been since he lost Cas?
    Dean looked at Eileen, and he signed the hard truth: He loved me most.
    She knelt across from him, and patted his head: Did you love him most too?

    Summary

    “I can erase your memories of her too,” Castiel’s fingers move along Dean’s spine, up to his neck, into his hair. “So that you won’t regret what you had me do. So that you won’t regret her.”

    “No,” Dean exhales, and the feeling of Castiel’s arm across his back, the feeling of Castiel’s hands, force some kind of calm over his body, a calm he tries to deny, because, maybe Castiel is the villain now, maybe Castiel has been the villain all along.

    (Takes place after 06x21 - Let It Bleed, after Castiel erases Lisa and Ben Braeden's memories of Dean)

    Summary

    Five years ago, a malignant mass removed from John Winchester's temporal lobe left behind a quietly ticking bomb that nobody noticed until it decimated everything. Five years ago, John dragged Dean away from everything he'd ever known, hellbent on rescuing him from an imagined threat that felt more real to him than the blood on his hands. Five years ago, Castiel let Dean's hand slip through his fingers as he rescued Sam from what he'd thought was a more immediate threat.

    For five years, Castiel has wondered if there was some way he could have saved Dean, too.

    Now, with a phone call that he'd all but given up hoping for, Castiel has a chance to try again.

    Summary

    2021 Castiel gets sent back in time and can only return to his time when he convinces Dean that everything will be okay.

    Easy; right? No. Because the Dean Castiel is sent to visit is twenty-two-year-old Dean whose brother just left for college and his father has ditched him a few days before Christmas.
