    Summary

    Castiel’s father is dying.

    As a registered nurse, he’s the obvious choice out of the four Novak boys to uproot his entire life to care for him, despite the fact that Castiel hasn’t spoken to his father in nearly 20 years. So he’s stuck living in rural Kansas with a cranky former pastor and a car that won’t run. Luckily the best mechanic in town takes interest in the broken-down classic, even convinces the old man to restore it. And that’s not the only thing Dean Winchester takes interest in.

    Except in Lebanon there are things you just don’t do and Dean knows the rules. You wave at your neighbor, your butt is in the pew on Sunday and boys DO NOT kiss other boys. Castiel can’t be with a guy who’s still in the closet and Dean can’t convince Castiel that it’s safer that way.

    That’s just how it is in Lebanon.

    Summary

    Summary

    Cas is now human and adjusting to that in the bunker with Dean (and Sam's) help. Things are going well, smooth even, with Cas mostly being the proverbial duck to water when it comes to humanity. But a major misunderstanding comes along to mess with what's become the Winchester version of domesticity, and suddenly all of that easiness and simplicity is shattered; what will it take to fix that?

    Summary

    Castiel likes to think that he knows Dean Winchester better than anyone else.

    But Cas has never seen this side of him.

    All morning he's been marching around the kitchen like someone half-crazed--eyes wild and a smear of flour on his temple. He's been feverishly whipping mashed potatoes and barking things like "Sam, dice the celery. Dice it. How many times do I have to say it?"

    Thanksgiving at the Bunker.

    Summary

    “Why come back?”

    He looks at her.

    He could lie and shrug it off with a cruel quip or an insult and so she’d stop asking.

    Or he could tell her that he woke up on a weirwood after dreaming of giving her a sword that glowed while his own stopped and after dreaming that he handed her his flower, too, because that is what happened —

     

    (Cersei threw it back in his face just before his father gave him a sword and both disappeared into the darkness, and when Brienne’s chains around her wrists parted like silk and he conjured that sword for her, he also couldn’t keep it in his hands anymore and so he told her to keep it safe and she had nodded and cradled it against her chest with her free hand, the golden petals looking so fragile against her large, rough palm)

     

    — but he’s not so sure he can.

    He shrugs.

    “I dreamed of you,” he tells her, and he leaves it at that, and if her eyes widen a bit and her mouth parts as he walks ahead, well, it’s a better look on her than either scorn or disdain.
