    Summary

    After Dean and Castiel are blasted into Purgatory, Sam is left alone and with no idea where his brother or his brother's angel are, or if they're even alive. After exhausting all angles, Sam does the only thing he can do - he calls his other brother. And, just like always, Tony rushes right in, ready to help Sam try and pick up the pieces and find a way to put his life back together.

    It's going to take more than just Tony this time, though. After dealing with the crazy that came from his broken wall, and the memories that never went away, and now losing his brother, Sam was broken in more ways than ever before. Will Tony and the other Avengers be able to help him put all the pieces back together? Or had he finally been broken one too many times?

    Summary

    Twelve years ago, Dean Winchester underwent a life-changing surgery that completely turned his life around. He's stuck to the lifestyle changes, and he honestly never thought he'd get this far. He's got a job and lives on his own, he's healthy, and he looks pretty damn good, if he does say so himself. When he meets Castiel Novak, a chubby stoner in his mid-twenties, everything is perfect. But when Cas' lifestyle choices threaten everything Dean's worked so hard to achieve, he's faced with a difficult decision when he realizes that he still doesn't have as much control over himself as he thought he did.

    Summary

    Sometimes Dean’s just gotta laugh when he thinks about how ridiculous his life is. It was easy when it came to death — with Sam looking terrified and angry in the passenger seat, Dean had laughed his goddamn ass off at the thought of Billie sending him back because he’s important. Somehow the incessant cycle of resurrection had become hilarious in that single moment. “Dead, not dead, who gives a crap, right, Sam?” he’d asked on the way home, and Sam had shook his head mutely, looking out the window.

    Now, though, it’s hard to laugh when he’s still going through it. A one-time injection is an easy thing to shake off; the daily grind of constant adrenaline-intense survival instinct that brings back the muscle memory of Purgatory, less so.

    Also, Dean’s in withdrawal.

    Summary

    But he couldnt do it, he was weak even when it came to give up. Cas did look like he was sleeping then, like he did 7 years ago in the same backseat, just a new tie and a new coat, Dean misses when Cas dying grace was his biggest problem, he took another look at him, he started to feel sick. He drove for another 8 hours.

    In the end he brings Cas to the bunker. He brings him home.

    -------
    Dean doesnt take death for an answer. Not when he still has so much left to say.

    If it were up to him, that list would’ve just been a list. He would've given up on love after Inias.

    But Dean wouldn't let him.
