    Summary

    When their Father cast them from Heaven, his Angels lost themselves in their grief. In 1424, they haunted the skies of citadels, as winged mercenaries turned animal, seeking bloodshed for a slight they no longer remembered. From Ardus, the central city of the kingdom, groups of soldiers took to the Roads to provide crucial supplies and transport amongst citadels. When Castiel, the last remaining Angel equipped with any sense of humanity, happened upon an attack to a Slayer's party on the Road, he rescued the only survivor - Dean Winchester - and spared him from certain death. Under starry skies and the shadowy treetops of Ardus' forest, the pair breached the boundaries of their relative humanity and divinity, discerning first friendship and then more, until, driven by love, Castiel was imprisoned by the Empress Lilith for the crime of animalism.

    When the door to the tomb is opened, Dean is returned to him. Only Dean no longer knows him, and the year is 2013.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester and Castiel Milton met on a rainy summer day over a broken down car. Even though Castiel is nosy and seems to have no filter, Dean still finds himself drawn to the man. Over time they become friends, and over time, Dean falls for Cas, certain that Cas is uninterested. What Dean doesn't know is that his friend hasn't always been quite so tame, and Cas is careful to keep it that way. Who would've thought that a fortune cookie and a childish game would be responsible for bringing out the truth?

    Summary

    A few months shy of the fledgling nest turning two, life is nothing Castiel expected. The angels have assimilated into human life despite still having their powers. Demiel owns a 1930s-style diner, named after Mary Winchester, along with the nest. Lonely Sam seems to have found love with her as well, and has embraced raising her fledglings. Even Bobby seems to adore playing Hael's father while she attends art school. Everything seems too good to be true, yet Dean and Castiel still feel something's missing from their family. They want a human baby to give James a sibling bond like Sam and Dean had. Struggling with surrogacy stretches their patience thin, especially toward Gabriel, now sitting on Heaven's throne, as he promised them another child. Meanwhile, Hael announces that she's found another fallen angel, Jeremy, and they're in love, but something's not quite right about him. Before long, the nest must band together once more as Jeremy threatens to expose their identities to Sioux Falls. Will they lose their homes and livelihood? Will Dean and Castiel have another baby? (This story is the sequel to Cas, You Had A Baby? - http://archiveofourown.org/works/981908)

    Summary

    How he ended up driving a decade-old Honda Accord down the dusty highway to San Francisco, with his absentee--not to mention very dead--older brother doing an air guitar solo beside him to the fuzzy sounds of some obscure grunge band on the radio, Cas wasn't sure. Somewhere along the way, he'd taken a wrong turn in his life.

    It could have been when he confessed to Dean, and the hunter outright rejected not just his romantic feelings, but his worth as a person. It also could have been stumbling into that hotel in Los Angeles and coincidentally running into the nightmare now obnoxiously singing in the passenger seat.

    Either way, Cas was feeling the regret. And oh boy, was it strong.

    --

    In which: Dean can't get his act together, Gabriel lives up to being a big bro, Sam has the common sense everyone else lacks, and John Winchester is responsible for a myriad of angst, even from beyond the grave.

    Summary

    When Dean’s engagement breaks off three days before Christmas, he’s left with nobody to accompany him on a road trip to his family’s mountain log cabin. His best friend Castiel happens to be available, and is willing to help him through a tough time. But when Dean's mother and brother arrive, expecting to meet the person Dean plans to marry, they understandably assume Castiel is Dean's fiancé. After a weekend of comfortable domesticity, sharing clothes, intimate conversations, and definitely-one-time-only therapy sex, it feels almost too easy for Dean and Cas to fake a loving, romantic relationship. The hard part is going back to being friends afterwards. They can’t keep their hands off each other, and they’ve discovered some fun things to do together which they’d never tell another soul about. And, oh boy, feelings. Now being ‘just friends’ is so impossible, it seems as if fate had another plan for them all along...
