    Summary

    Bravery, in Dean’s world, has always been about grappling with monsters and guts, not feelings and hearts. No time for that shit when you’re trying to save the world and your own hide.

    Now, though, there aren’t any bloody barriers to Dean’s desires, only psychological ones—far messier, in his opinion. But if he fought God himself to have the life he wants, then he sure as hell is gonna get it. Or try, anyway. All he has to do is be brave.

    Except, well, he has no idea how.

    So he talks to Cas about everything he is and wants in a way ANYONE can understand.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a man who used to believe in foolish things: Wishes. Signs. True mates. He’s over all that now. Personal pain and messed-up biology cured him of those.

    And then in walks Castiel Novak, alpha extraordinaire, who smells like heaven and throws him into hell.

    Cas has always believed in true mates. He knows they exist—his family is full of them. He had his doubts about whether he’d have one himself, due to his biological “gift,” but when he meets Dean Winchester, his omega, it seems that destiny has finally smiled down on him.

    Too bad his true mate hates him.

    Forced by Dean’s medical complications to be together, Dean and Castiel must learn how to reconcile the past and the present, fate and choice, protection and sacrifice…before it’s too late.

    Summary

    The blizzard was supposed to be the worst of the already terrible winter so far—a deadly one, if the press was to be believed. But for Chicago firefighter Dean Winchester, used to putting his ass on the line day after day, it would be just another routine shift.

    Or it would have been, until "routine" turns into rescuing the man he loves, the man he didn’t dare make his, despite all his chances.

    Will Dean have one more chance? Or will Dean’s love remain trapped under the rubble forever?

    Summary

    Castiel Novak missed his best friend. They used to spend so much time together…and in that time, Cas fell in love with him. But though they lived together, Cas barely saw him anymore, because Dean hadn’t taken a day off in the two years he’d been employed at Sandover.

    A surprise weekend away seemed like the perfect way to give Dean a break…and to confess his feelings. He had it all planned out. Nothing could go wrong. Right?

    Summary

    One morning after a night shift in the ER, Dr. Dean Winchester notices a Prius (gross) waiting for his parking space. Not unusual, given the number of employees and the scarcity of spaces in the morning, but what is unusual is the same car waiting for his space day after day. It becomes a game, and soon, Dean becomes curious.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is unemployed, living with his brother, and taking care of three kids, all during quarantine. Life has gotten small and a little lonely, so why not have some fun when he can? That fun comes while his daughter, Bea, is making one of her many videos. He has no problem hamming it up to “Uptown Funk” in the privacy of their home—he loves making her and his niece and nephew laugh.

    Or, he doesn’t have a problem until he finds out she sent the video to her very hot teacher, Mr. Novak.

    Then he has a BIG problem.

    Castiel Novak’s life is small, too. He lives alone, and outside of his class time with his students, he doesn’t smile much. That changes when he gets a video from one of his students. Watching her silly dad in the background, he not only smiles, but laughs. He’d love to have someone like him in his life. He doesn’t have any hope of that, but he does hope that maybe Dean would be willing to share the video to spread the cheer around.

    Could bringing joy to a weary world bring joy to two lonely souls, too?

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is bored with sex. His best friend Castiel Novak is, too. And since they’re both bored and neither of them are in a relationship (because they don't do relationships), why not try to get out of their ruts by having roleplay sex with each other? Sure it’s a little different, a little wild, but that’s the point. They both need something completely out of their comfort zones to break them out of the humdrum of hookups and the bar scene, and they trust each other enough to commit wholly to the process. When they’ve scratched the itch, they’ll go back to their usual ways.

    But the more they take on new roles, the more they shed old ones, leading them to evaluate who they really are, who they want to be, and who they want to be with.

    This is a story about the roles we play, the friends we play them with, and becoming real.

    Summary

    Happy ending, my ass, Dean thought. He ended up in Heaven, but it wasn’t any better than his crappy life on Earth. Cas, who apparently was pulled out of the Empty and remade Heaven just for him, didn’t even greet him when he arrived.
     

    But all roads, it seemed, led to Cas, and when they met again, they both had some things to say and wrongs to right.


    And when they did, Dean found that maybe a truly happy ending was possible for him after all.

    By the time they've done just that, though, Castiel is gone and Dean is hopeless. Why can't they ever get what they deserve? What good is freedom and peace if Cas isn't there with him? Why does the world get to win and Dean doesn't?

    Summary

    Castiel Novak is convinced he’s the last unwillingly single person in Lupine Cove. Even Gabriel, his perpetual bachelor brother, has found love. It’s probably because Cas leads the most boring life in existence. He’s a gay man living in a rented, one-room cottage in the same small coastal town he grew up in, just getting by as the owner of the same convenience store he was practically raised in. The most excitement he gets is chatting with the locals or maybe, if he’s unlucky, oversleeping and rushing to work. So when a baby is left at the Safe Haven drop-off at the local fire station, he takes the opportunity to step in for the child temporarily, at least until suitable parents, plural, can be found.

    Life certainly gets more interesting.

    And it gets even more interesting when a handsome man comes crashing—literally—into his life.

    Summary

    "Dean has had a stomachache for days. Taking in the news reports, the constant chirp of social media, opinions that make him want to retch... It’s a lot. It’s so much.
    He feels helpless. Drained. Terrified of a world that still doesn’t treat people as it should. And he doesn’t even face the daily horrors and indignities of discrimination.
    He doesn’t know what to do. What to say. How to make sense of something that’s senseless and wrong. Or how to explain it to his Kindergarten students, kids he hasn’t even seen in person in months."

    Dean and Castiel strive to make the world a better place for all by addressing racism.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak thought that their senior year of college would be the best year of their lives—until they find out the apartment they’re renting has also been rented to someone else. Given three options, they choose option C—live together for the year and make it work.

    When roommate Vaughn turns out to be a conceited jerk with very different political views and values, best friends Dean and Cas scheme to push him out...by any means necessary. Those means become an elaborate game of fake-relationship antics, which would be fine if Dean wasn’t secretly in love with Cas and Cas hadn’t sworn off dating friends.

    As the games escalate, will Dean be able to cope with the feelings that just won’t go away? And will Cas stick with his vow, or will his feelings force him to find another option?

And give he does, both to a new mom at the hospital and to his own little family at home.
