(It’s not home now, not anymore. It can’t be when the person that made it home is gone.)
Somewhere, out in the Empty, Castiel is shedding his grace, is finding his way home.
Dean is certain there isn’t any room left in his body for more pain, he already aches so completely he’s certain that there’s nothing left of him but grief.

They’ve done the not talking thing before and it almost ruined them, almost drove both of them to edges that they wouldn’t have been able to come back from. But this - it isn’t too late to talk about this.
“Buck, I-“ Eddie tries, but then Buck is sitting up and rolling out of bed - searching through the pile of clothes on the floor to find his own.
“Don’t worry,” he says, an easy grin on his face. “This doesn’t change anything with us.”
(Or, the friends with benefits fic that no one asked for.)
Buck tells Eddie he’s in love with him. Eddie pines.
or, five times eddie watches buck leave, and the one time he goes after him
He puts the truck in park in front of Eddie’s childhood home. Christopher shifts in the back, already unbuckling his seatbelt. Eddie is frozen with his jaw set, eyes hard and unblinking as they bore holes through the windshield. Buck was here once before, after that relief trip to Texas, but he is under no illusions that this time will be similar. For one, he doesn’t have the buffer of other firefighters to hide behind. This isn’t a visit that will last a couple hours, and so the sugary, superficial niceties will eventually crumble when it’s mid-way through the week and he’s still hanging around. There is also the shadow of everything that has happened since the wildfires skulking behind them, waiting to be found out.
But, this is Eddie and Christopher, needing him to have it together, so he paints on a smile and squeezes Eddie's knee and slides out of the truck.
Eddie's dad gets sick. Buck goes with him and Christopher to El Paso.
