    Summary

    "Can you teach me?"
    "Hm?"
    "The things you say, when we make love."

     

    Or, honing your dirty talk skills across the centuries because sometimes words of affirmation are also acts of service: the Nicolò di Genova story.

    Summary

    Maybe it’s the cynic in him. The hunter, always under the surface of any quietude he ever found. Or maybe it’s just that he has always had trouble with blind faith. But after a while (a blink? A decade? A century?), Dean raises his eyebrows, looks around, and says—

    “Uh. No.”

    It’s so close. Just so slightly imperfect. And maybe, he analyzes, maybe that’s the final knell of this bell called contentment. Dean’s experience with happiness has always been that last rise in the road, right before it turns. Right before fate comes barreling around the corner head on.

    He turns in his spot on the bridge, and suddenly Sam is like a cellophane film through which he can see the light streaming, and the taste of cheap beer on his tongue is much, much older a memory than it should be.

    “Oh, you’re good,” he says, and means it.

    Summary

    The kicker is, Dean had been trying to live.

    Really live. And not bite out in anger at the fraying of his heart: Cas, gone, Jack, gone—all that was left was him and his brother, and Dean had been trying to live, in spite, in light of that.

    In a world like the unsteady first steps of a child, apprehensive arms and hands cradling the air around them, ready for a slip, excited for a step, Dean had been trying to walk forward, too. Though every step had meant every pain.

    Upon his death, and arrival in heaven, Dean sets out to find the angel. He has to tell him. Cas has to know.

    Summary

    Whatever Leonardo had expected of Primo, of how he might finally come into his own or find his demise, this was not one of them. A kingdom of their own. A true change in fortune. An empire to live on after them.
