    Summary

    Everybody knows that true mates are bullshit. They belong to the realm of romantic comedies and the wistful anecdotes about a friend-of-a-friend who met their true mate while shopping for groceries and was mated the next day and lived happily ever after. At least, that’s what Castiel Milton, social activist journalist, thinks, and he hasn’t seen anything to convince him otherwise. Then he meets Dean Winchester in a disastrous attempt at an interview, and his entire worldview, as well as the mythology surrounding ‘true mates’, is called into question.

    Summary

    “Let me get this straight,” Dean says. He’s rubbing at the tense furrow between his brows with his thumb, eyes closed as if he’s in pain. Castiel, watching, wants to pull Dean’s hand away and replace it with his mouth, kiss away the wrinkles. He has the feeling that Dean would not find this an acceptable course of action in public. “You wanted to go all-out on Halloween decorations this year. And you’re broke as shit. So you decided to reanimate a couple dozen corpses rather than shell out twenty bucks at Party City for some plastic bones.”

    “I didn’t mean to,” the girl moans. Her head is in her hands and her short dark hair is a mess, pulled every which way. “I swear to God, I was just trying to raise one—I even picked out an unmarked grave, you know, one of the ones that’s been here for like, two hundred years? So I don’t, like. I dunno, upset the family, I guess? And I was just gonna have it sit by my door and move every once in a while when trick or treaters came by and freak people out, and then the next day, I swear, I was gonna put it back to rest.”

    “Lady,” Dean says, “You raised a whole friggin’ cemetery.”

    --

    In which there is the obligatory Halloween (pseudo) case fic.

    Summary

    “Don’t make it into a big deal,” Dean says. “Okay? Just. Don’t—don’t make a big deal out of it.”

    “What am I not supposed to be making a big deal out of?” Cas asks. They’re in the Impala, the two of them, staking out a nest of vamps, Dean fidgeting in the driver’s seat while Cas slumps against the passenger side door, fighting to keep his eyes open. It’s three in the morning, and he’s running on four cups of coffee and just a few hours of sleep.

    Dean sucks in a deep breath, rubs the back of the neck. “I, uh,” he says, “got you something. Made you something. And it’s not a big deal, so don’t take it that way.”

    Or, in which Dean finally makes it clear to Cas that they belong together.

    Summary

    Dean and Cas have been working together for three years at a fire station in Kansas, and Dean is stupidly, madly, heads-over-heels in love. So is Cas, but he doesn't know that yet. Of all things, Dean doesn't expect that giving a fire safety presentation to a bunch of kindergarteners is what finally gets them together.

    Summary

    Missing scene from 10.20, Angel Heart.

    Cas has heard that it's tradition to give someone a present on their birthday. Only problem is, neither he nor Dean are all that savvy when it comes to buying presents for teenage girls. And even when they follow Charlie's advice and head to Hot Topic, they're way out of their element - especially when Dean sees Supernatural merchandise for sale.

    And Dean is half-sick with his longing for Cas, but when he finds the courage to reach out, Cas reaches back.

    Summary

    post-9.01, in a slight AU wherein Cas comes to live with the Winchesters at the Bunker. Written before 9.03. Crossposting from Tumblr. Written for a prompt from hightopsandsharpies: "Okay, so Cas is a virgin, and has no idea what pleasure is and Dean decides to show him and Cas gets all cuddly and needy afterwards."

    Dean walks in on Cas masturbating. He’s doing it all wrong, but when you’re a bazillion-year-old virgin, that’s to be expected. Dean decides to lend him a hand in a totally platonic, non-romantic way. Things get a little out of control.

    Summary

    Written for a prompt on Tumblr.

    Original Prompt from brokenitaly224: "Do you think maybe you can write a fic where Cas fakes sick just to be cuddled by Dean?"

    Set at some vague point in Season 9 during which human!Cas is living with Sam, Dean, and Kevin in the Bunker. Dean always takes such good care of Cas when he's sick, and Cas finds himself aching for that kind of closeness with him. But he doesn't just want Dean to take care of him; he wants to take care of Dean, too.
