    Summary

    Competition and racing are nothing new to Castiel and Jimmy Novak. Since leaving behind college athletics and settling down into jobs and everyday life, though, it's gotten harder to scratch that competitive itch. Now Jimmy's swimming skills and Cas's running abilities have earned unexpected attention, and they've been pressured into creating a triathlon relay team. All they need is a cyclist who can keep up.

    Dean is not an "athlete." He's not about to back down from a challenge, though, so he'll do whatever he has to do, as far outside his comfort zone as it may take him. Finding fast new best friends in the Novak twins should make that stretch easier for him, but instead, as he can't help falling in love with not one, but both twins, things just keep getting a whole lot more complicated.

    Tumblr ficlet: “Were you ever going to tell me?”
    “I might have had a few shots.”
    ”Don’t apologize. That’s not the point. Did you mean it?”
    ”The hills are alive, with the sound of bullshit.”

    Summary

    In the early 20th century, coal mines were full of dangers: poisonous gases, potential collapses, explosive materials. Then there were the more subtle threats: crooked dealings, systemic exploitation, lies that protected those with power. Survival meant watching one’s back; a stupid mistake could cost lives.

    All that coal miner Dean and schoolteacher Castiel can hope is that hiding their blossoming relationship won’t end up costing them everything.

    Summary

    In 2008, Dean takes over his late grandfather’s tailor shop in Normal, Illinois, and discovers an old leather flight jacket in the attic. A hand-painted set of wings on the back, the name Novak, and a three-quarters sewn circle of red cotton are the only clues he has to the jacket’s origins, and he enlists his historian brother to help him find the owner.

    It doesn’t take long for Sam to trace the jacket to Lieutenant Castiel Novak–a pilot who lived in Dean’s apartment until his mysterious disappearance a few years after WWII–and what little information they find about him is fascinating. The guy was a stone cold badass. A stone cold fox, too, if the grainy old newspaper photo is anything to go by.

    It’s to be expected that Dean idly wishes he could have known the man as he closes the annoyingly unfinished circle of thread on the jacket.

    Less expected, however, is that wish coming true.
