    Summary

    The media goes into a frenzy when A-list actor Dean Winchester's soulmark is captured in a paparazzi photo—especially since he recently started dating co-star, Lisa Braeden.

    Hundreds of miles away at college, Castiel Novak recognizes Dean's mark as his own. However, he doesn't feel motivated to do anything about it when Dean's quotes to the press make it clear he doesn't believe in destiny and that he's happy with his current relationship.

    And yet, in spite of repeatedly telling his cousin Gabriel that he and Dean live in two different worlds that aren't meant to collide, the book he is publishing behind his mother's back becomes surprisingly successful. He agrees to let it get turned into a movie—a movie that will star none other than Dean Winchester.

    Summary

    Freedom is just one adjustment after the next.

    ~~~

    Cas hums again. "I think you already have. It's been months since everything settled. All that's left to do is...get used to it, and perhaps—" His voice stalls out, uncharacteristically, and his gaze roams Dean's face with intensity. When he speaks next, his tone is a little raw. "Perhaps what one does with peace is...whatever they want."

    "What if I don't even know what that is?" Dean grumbles, arching an eyebrow in challenge. "'Cause I know damn well you don't just mean good food and a good bed and time in Baby, not simple wants like that. You mean—ya know, the big things, the wants we didn't get to have before."

    "Yes," Cas agrees. "If you're not sure, figure it out."

    "Easier said than done."

    Summary

    “How the fuck do you know my name?” Dean hisses.

    The man doesn’t look scared. He is watching Dean like there is nothing else worth watching, lips a little parted, eyes a little soft. And blue. Real blue, like the ocean on a postcard.

    The ice spreading down Dean’s spine makes him shiver.

    “I suppose you could say I’m your guardian angel,” the man murmurs. His breath fogs pale between them. All of him is unnaturally warm, like Dean’s touching somebody with the sun sewn up beneath their skin. “I have known you, Dean Winchester, for a very long time.”

    *

    Dean meets an angel who says he's from the future. It all gets a lot more complicated from there.

    Summary

    Dean keeps going back.

    When he arrives, it's always to blooming flowers and a windmill in the background, not too far from a brook, the sun painting the plains.

    He likes it there. He likes to stand in front of the makeshift urn and check that it's still where he put it, switching out the flowers when they wilt. He likes to listen to the sound of birds chirping, insects singing, the faint sound of water trickling in the distance. He likes to turn his face up and feel the sun on his skin, wondering if Cas would do the same if he were here, somehow knowing that he would.

    He likes to talk.

    There's never a response, but Dean feels the breeze rustle through his hair and watches the flowers bob when bees come to them and stares as the windmill keeps turning, turning, turning. And he imagines that Cas is replying—the windmill is the tilted head, the bobbing flowers are a gentle smile, the breeze is whatever words Dean wants to hear at the time.

    Sometimes, it's almost like he's there.

    Summary

    A/U. No one knows where angels originate from. There’s lots of speculations though. Dean’s dad says that people are scared of the unknown and that’s why some of the angels are made to be pets and others are locked up in labs. Dean wants to help and dad thinks that’s very noble of him but when mom dies, things change. Especially when dad brings home an angel with blue eyes for Sammy’s 13th birthday.
