    Summary

    This is what Cas gave up Heaven for: greasy diner food, shitty motel rooms with even shittier cable, long car rides spent in complete silence except for the same six tapes playing over and over again, and a burnt-out husk of a man who can barely hold a conversation anymore.

    Summary

    "We might," Cas starts slowly, pausing like he's choosing his words. "We might have to kiss."

    Dean just stares at him.

    Summary

    They are nothing like the men he knew, and yet, from time to time, the light is right or their expressions shift in such a way. They act generously, or out of anger, out of tenderness, out of guilt. They grill or drive to work or rake the yard while Castiel watches, and for a long second he is in front of Lisa Braeden's house again, watching red leaves turn into piles. Watching Dean shake open plastic trash bags and fill them and take them to the curb. Wishing he could speak, and not speaking. Saying nothing. Turning away. Sometimes, Castiel thinks what he is really looking for, is punishment.

     

    (Future fic, assuming an alternate ending to season 8.)

    Summary

    in an unnamed, perpetually rainy city on the east coast, something haunts dean and cas’ apartment. they’d like to pretend they don’t know what’s living in the space between them, but feigned ignorance can only keep them above water for so long.

    something happened nine months ago. something they don’t talk about.

    but the things people don’t talk about often find ways to speak for themselves, whether dean and cas are ready to pay their dues or not. the rain is an unforgiving entity, and as it continues to pervade the city; as it seeps into their already cold bones, they can feel the ocean rising around them, leaving them choking not on just what happened nine months ago, but what they’ve come to mean to each other since then.
