    Summary

    “We did good, Dean,” Sam says. “We got him back.”

    Dean huffs a hollow laugh, because yeah, that’s always what it’s about, isn’t it? Cas or Sam or Dean getting themselves lost or dead, and then taking turns dragging each other back from the brink. He shrugs, shoving his hands into his pockets.

    “We got him back, yeah,” he says. Sam nods, watching him. “So now what?”

    Summary

    “Y’all are sweet,” she says, and nods to indicate him and Cas. “Is he your—are you all together?”

    Dean’s still contemplating how to answer this without saying something offensive—he never has figured out a polite way to say “no homo”—when Cas answers for him. Cas doesn’t even look up from his plate, his mouth full of baklava and some stray flakes of phyllo dough sticking to his lips when he says, “Yes.”

    Dean feels more than sees Sam go very still across the table, forkful of salad and grilled chicken poised in midair.

    In which Cas is human and doesn't understand basic concepts like: clothing, Mythbusters, moisturizer, and Greek food. Dean is...Dean and doesn't understand basic concepts like: boyfriends, language, how to tell your friend that he's a walking miracle, and when not to quip.

    “What else was I supposed to say, Sam?” Dean asks him. “I’m not...look, Cas is my best friend, and I care about him. That’s it.”

    “And you renovated a house for him,” Sam continues. “And live with him.”

    Summary

    There is a young god in the sky, and he needed the Winchesters to die in order to bring his father back to life.

    For the Winchesters, death is a currency, and while Dean and Sam are intent on pretending that they are unaffected by the trauma of their most recent passing, and Castiel’s as well, Cas knows it isn’t true.

    Now, he is human, and has to live with the consequences of his death, and the confession he’d uttered just prior to it. No matter the discomfort he, and others given another chance at life, feel about it.
