    Summary

    Castiel Novak is an inmate at a labour camp. Life is brutal and no one ever gets out. Castiel’s only goal is to go unnoticed by the barbaric guards, and the violent inmates. Dean Winchester is a soldier without a purpose since the civil war ended. Dean accepts an assignment at a labour-camp, under the mentorship of Alistair, the Commander. From the start, Dean and Castiel are drawn to each other, and their relationship develops in a way that changes their lives. But Alistair has his own plans for Dean, and Castiel is a complication. When Alistair fails to separate them through threats and violence, he turns to manipulation; feeding Dean’s confusion about his feelings for Castiel, and goading him into a terrible act in order to break him. As Dean and Castiel try to fight back, they uncover secrets that are more far-reaching than they ever imagined. In such a dangerous world, can they ever be together? Can they even survive?

    A dystopian, alternate-history (diverging after the Great Depression in 1933) AU, set in America in 1950.

    Summary

    With his business manager/constant sidekick/P.A./ginormous little brother finally marrying his pregnant fiancée and whisking her away on a well-deserved honeymoon, Dean is headed to Scotland on his own for a two-month location shoot. Sam, never a man not to micromanage, has arranged for a P.A. to keep Dean organized in his absence and, thanks to a little emotional blackmail, a security consultant to watch Dean’s back.

    Cas, the bodyguard, may be hot, but he’s also grumpy and thinks, probably rightly, that Dean’s a complete idiot. Plus, the poor guy’s got his hands full with Dean’s jealous cast-mates, asshole reporters, over-enthusiastic fangirls, and crazy internet stalkers, so really, it’s a good job Dean’s not Whitney Houston because falling for his bodyguard is too cliched even for him. Right?

    Summary

    Jim Morrison once said, “The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.” That was Castiel Novak’s motto in life, and the reason why he accepted his grandmother's inheritance and took the responsibility it implied.

    Dean Winchester, a remarkable accountant at Sandover Bridge & Iron Inc., however, had other priorities. He lived to serve, hidden in a mask that didn’t allow him to be honest with himself, but lonesome and boring.

    When destiny made their paths cross, in a less than promising way, with Dean as the instigator and Castiel as his victim, Dean’s mind started wandering, in between pies and cakes, coffees and muffins... What if Mr. Morrison was right?

    After all, as the guy used to say, "there can’t be any large-scale revolution, until there’s a personal revolution first."

    Summary

    Dean was tired of dating. It was expensive and fake, and with a landscaping business to keep him busy, he just didn't have time or desire. The mysterious guy at the bar seemed to feel the same way, and when he came up with some outlandish ideas for unconventional dates he called un-dates, Dean couldn't help but be intrigued. Dean found himself volunteering for the tasks, and soon he was wrapped up in a situation he never expected -- while playing bingo, grocery shopping, and eating cheap burgers in a parking lot, he fell completely in love with a beautiful man who kept most people just out of reach of his true self. Would Dean be able to convince him that falling in love was worth facing his deepest fears?
