    Summary

    Only a very few people in the world know that the celebrated and reclusive poet Jack Allen is just Kansas mechanic Dean Winchester, a high school dropout with a few bucks to his name. Not that it matters anymore; life has left him so wrung out he never wants to pick up another pen.

    Until, that is, a string of coincidences leads Dean to auditing a poetry course with one Dr. Castiel Novak. The professor is wildly intelligent, devastatingly handsome...and just so happens to be academia's foremost expert on the poetry of Jack Allen.

    Nothing but a breath—a comma—separates life from life everlasting. It is very simple really. With the original punctuation restored, death is no longer something to act out on a stage, with exclamation points. It’s a comma, a pause. This way, the uncompromising way, one learns something from this poem, wouldn’t you say? Life, death. Soul, God. Past, present. Not insuperable barriers, not semicolons, just a comma.
    poetry half way through ch 2 will probably want to reread

     

    Then, to Castiel’s surprise, Dean turned his head slightly and winked so that only Castiel could see, and oh. Oh. Dean had been working them up on purpose. Dean had seen the girls’ edges, especially Claire’s pointed, jagged chips like spikes on her shoulders, and he’d found a way to make them laugh. In one hour Dean had achieved Claire’s grudging approval when it had taken weeks for Castiel to even get her to hold a conversation with him. My god who was this man, lips curling around his glass of wine, nudging his sister-in-law good-naturedly so he could sign her a joke that made her roll her eyes, though a smile lurked in the corner of her mouth, this man who was happy to help Missouri out in the kitchen, who loved his family so much he moved across the country to be closer to them?

    Castiel wished so much in that moment that he had met Dean in other circumstances, and wasn’t bound to the distance absolutely necessary between teacher and student. That it wasn’t just his to have the silent Dean, thoughtful and troubled and made unhappy by Castiel’s remarks, but this Dean, too: the one who laughed with his whole body, and made dinosaur noises with his nephew, and ate Donna’s pie with such gusto that her smile hadn’t fallen away since.

     

    Alone, yes, but not lonely; alone like there's enough room for the self to expand to its full breadth and height, like the thing that makes you you inside is actually monstrous in size, multi-headed and many-eyed, sharp and soft in equal measure, and only during times like this can it stretch its wings. And it feels good. You breathe deep, you expand, and it feels good.

    He closed his eyes and reveled in it.

    Summary

    Transmigrating turns out to not be as fun as she'd thought when she discovers she's in the body of a cannon fodder character destined to either be killed off or made another number in a harem. Determined to get home before she can die or be pushed down by the protagonist, Ren Bai might wind up making this story change more than she expected.

    Summary

    Months after Dean had told Castiel he had to leave the bunker, the angel comes back running on fumes from another angel's grace. Dean goes into action to take care of his best friend and make up for making him leave. But what happens if Cas gets better? Will he leave again or will Dean find the words to get him to stay. Or will it be Castiel who steps up first? Who would have thought the reveal would come after a game of strip poker, a 'platonic' slow dance, and a cocky archangel.

    Or Dean takes care of Cas and the angel spends the rest of his life trying to do that same for his hunter, wanting to give Dean a life and home he should have had all along.
