    Summary

    Dean’s life is, for once, less like a roiling ocean and a lot more like a clear glass lake. He’s got a steady job that pays well, two of the funniest roommates in the world, a brother that’s poised to graduate valedictorian, a long-term girlfriend, and the kind of best friend he used to only dream of. It’s exactly what’s he’s always wanted. Until, of course, life turns his clear lake back into choppy waters when he and Lisa call it quits for good and he ends up at Cas’ door at two in the morning, ready to honor the agreement they made when they were too drunk in college. A rebound weekend, hook up with each other after a breakup to numb the pain of loss. An easy, surefire way to not catch feelings. Sounds perfect, until Dean catches the very feelings he’s been avoiding for who knows how long. Which is a problem, because he’s straight, and Cas is just a little too out of his league.

    Summary

    It was over. Chuck lost, Sam and Dean can live their lives how they want them. But their victory wasn't without losses. The biggest upset nearly taking Dean out of the game, happening so close to the final battle. Now he's on the other side, alive against all odds, but Sam knows he isn't happy. Not truly happy since the Empty stole his best friend.

    But there's a chance they can save him. A slim chance. A risk that Dean's willing to take despite every logical nerve in Sam's body screaming at him to look for better options. That threading a needle this small is too dangerous. That they don't have to take on another big bad, not anymore. That they don't have to risk their lives anymore. Dean is far past the point of listening. Dead set on this mission, Sam can only watch.

    And pray his brother proves him wrong.
