    Well-done "what if?" series that explores what would happen if Dean were a shapeshifter. Plenty of fluff and smut, but good casefics stuck in there too.

    Summary

    Agent Dean Winchester of the FBI, one of the most respected and feared men in the classified Supernatural Defence Agency (SDA), is secretly but happily married to fellow agent Castiel Novak. With their romantic relationship and marriage concealed from other agents, Dean and Cas will face the greatest threat yet to their love for each other. A mission in Purgatory leads to Cas losing all his good memories of Dean and reverting back to who he was before they really got to know one another: a gay man with severe internalized homophobia and deep hatred for Dean.
    While the team learns to function with Cas' amnesia and the challenges it brings, Dean is also desperate to save his marriage and bring back his beloved best friend, lover, and husband.

    One of the sweetest, most believable amnesia fics I’ve read, and it’s set in a wonderful FBI-AU, to boot. Great combination of personal drama and casefic action. Bookmarking because I already know I’ll want to read it again sometime.

    Summary

    AU for the S10 finale. Sam strikes a bargain with Death. Death goes back in time and reaps Sam permanently at Cold Oak. In exchange, there are no world-ending crises, and a lot of their friends are saved from dying. But for Dean, it doesn't matter how many other people are alive. The world's still empty without Sam in it, and the knowledge that Sam's waiting for him on the other side is all that keeps him going. Or: the epic love story of Sam and Dean, told in letters.

    Beautiful alternate universe - canon divergence story, where Sam makes a deal with Death to die permanently, the first time, at Cold Oak. The twist is that both Dean and Sam remember the original timeline, and Death allows Sam to write Dean a letter every year on his birthday. The story is told almost entirely through letter excerpts. I give it five out of five sopping-wet ugly-crying handkerchiefs.

    Summary

    What begins as a transforming love between Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak in the summer of 1965 quickly derails into something far more tumultuous when Dean is drafted in the Vietnam War. Though the two both voice their relationship is one where saying goodbye is never a real truth, their story becomes fraught with the tragedy of circumstance. In an era where homosexuality was especially vulnerable, Twist and Shout is the story of the love transcending time, returning over and over in its many forms, as faithful as the sea.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story *destroyed* me. Do not read unless you are prepared for a long bout of ugly crying. I hope it's not giving away too much of the plot to say that it really brings home the horrors of both veterans' PTSD and the AIDS epidemic. Young'uns, here's a great fic if you want to get a feel for some major social issues of the 70s and 80s, and how they impacted real people.
    With all that said, I'm bookmarking because I occasionally have the masochistic desire to read it all again. 'Cause despite everything, it's beautiful.

But with a tragic accident, he's back and dealing with the death of his father, the social stigma and objectification of being an out Omega, and the lingering aftermath of a long-ago crime.

    Wonderful, in-character A/B/O 'verse fic with great balance of smut & action & courtroom drama.
