    Summary

    “I don’t like being God.” Jack confesses, “Even with Amara and all the angels, it’s lonely. I want to give my powers over to her, perfect harmony, and come back home. Before I can do that, I think I need to make good on what I said to him.”

    “Are you saying-?” He can’t bring himself to say it, afraid to be wrong. If he’s wrong he knows he’ll continue to do what he does best, figure it the fuck out, but he’s just so tired of things being difficult.

    He hopes for it to be this simple, if only just this once.

    “My last act as God is going to be saving Cas from the Empty.”

    -

    In which Castiel is saved from the Empty and becomes a bartender at a western themed bar, Dean fights his alcohol addiction and his own feelings, and everyone else is confused as to why they’re not together already.

    Summary

    He doesn't know who to blame anymore, who's at fault at the root of everything. It's Dad. It's Mom. It's Mary, and it's John. It's Dean, at the end of the day. What do the roots matter when the tree is on fire? 

    "I don't want to be the Dean you wanted me to be," Dean tells her quietly. 

    Mary swallows. "Don't worry, you're not." 

    "What's he like? That Dean." 

    "Just like you." 

    "Then what's the difference?" 

    "He never lost his mom."

    Summary

    Claire isn't stupid. Show a girl your scars, doesn't make her yours. 

    There was a stained glass in the church her parents took her to when she was small, depicting a pretty woman with wings. An angel, her mother had said. I want to marry her, Claire had replied. They prayed for her that day, the whole damn congregation. 

    ~~~

    "Why'd you follow me?" Kaia asks. 

    "Why'd you jump in front of a spear for me?" Claire retorts, then immediately regrets it when Kaia curls in further around herself, like she's protecting her abdomen. It's a scar Claire hasn't seen.

    Summary

    Claire shows up at the bunker a day before Dean was planning to leave, with her hair cut short and a fresh tattoo on her left arm under a bandage.

    ---

    Chuck is dead, Jack has given up his godlike powers, and Cas is back from the Empty, which doesn't make it any easier for Dean to talk to him. Suddenly finding himself in a world without monsters, supernatural forces, or any need for hunters, Dean's solution is to go on a road trip. Claire tags along.

    Summary

    The year is 1996, and Dean’s stuck in Kankakee, Illinois while Dad’s on a long-haul hunt. It’s not too bad. He’s even got a friend, now—even if Cas is a weird, gawky loner kid who gets way too intense about his sci-fi novels and doesn’t know how to stop staring. Just business as usual.

    Until his dad comes back, and it isn’t.

    The year is 2011, and the shadows known as ‘angels’ and ‘demons’ are falling from cracks in the sky, raining death, destruction, and monsters where they pass. When the Joint Task Force asks for their help in stopping the end of the world—John Winchester, his sons, and a ragtag band of hunters—well, that’s just business as usual, too.

    Until Dean meets the cold blue eyes of their team liaison—Dr. Castiel Novak.

    Summary

    Dean keeps going back.

    When he arrives, it's always to blooming flowers and a windmill in the background, not too far from a brook, the sun painting the plains.

    He likes it there. He likes to stand in front of the makeshift urn and check that it's still where he put it, switching out the flowers when they wilt. He likes to listen to the sound of birds chirping, insects singing, the faint sound of water trickling in the distance. He likes to turn his face up and feel the sun on his skin, wondering if Cas would do the same if he were here, somehow knowing that he would.

    He likes to talk.

    There's never a response, but Dean feels the breeze rustle through his hair and watches the flowers bob when bees come to them and stares as the windmill keeps turning, turning, turning. And he imagines that Cas is replying—the windmill is the tilted head, the bobbing flowers are a gentle smile, the breeze is whatever words Dean wants to hear at the time.

    Sometimes, it's almost like he's there.

    Summary

    Castiel thought about the things he knew were true. First, he was in love with Dean, had loved him for years. Second, Dean didn’t return his feelings. Dean couldn’t return his feelings. Castiel knew that Dean loved him, of course, but Dean loved him like a brother, like family. Third, Dean treated hunting as a calling. He’d told Castiel before that he knew he’d die on a hunt someday as though that was his destiny. Hunting wasn’t something Dean would readily give up.

    Yet it was clear that Dean also loved Jack. He’d stepped up and acted as Jack’s father without anyone asking him to and it was a role he was well-suited to. And Castiel had found his thoughts wandering back to that one afternoon he still wished he could change, to watching Dean rake leaves in the yard of a suburban house as though there was nowhere else in the world he’d rather be.

    It was that memory that had led Castiel to carefully say, “Dean, if you wanted to, you could live with Jack and I.”

    -
    This fic is a baby!Jack au with Cas and Dean coparenting a child while pointedly avoiding admitting their feelings for each other! There's a lot of domestic fluff, a little bit of angst, and even a ghost hunt thrown in for some fun (and plot).

    Summary

    Freedom is just one adjustment after the next.

    ~~~

    Cas hums again. "I think you already have. It's been months since everything settled. All that's left to do is...get used to it, and perhaps—" His voice stalls out, uncharacteristically, and his gaze roams Dean's face with intensity. When he speaks next, his tone is a little raw. "Perhaps what one does with peace is...whatever they want."

    "What if I don't even know what that is?" Dean grumbles, arching an eyebrow in challenge. "'Cause I know damn well you don't just mean good food and a good bed and time in Baby, not simple wants like that. You mean—ya know, the big things, the wants we didn't get to have before."

    "Yes," Cas agrees. "If you're not sure, figure it out."

    "Easier said than done."

    Summary

    The first time Dean and Cas kiss, it's not really even a kiss at all. It is not, however, the last kiss that they share.

    ~~~

    Dean doesn't think about it. Not about what it means, not about what it makes them, not about how it affects him. This life—that's not how things work. It's just this, these "in the moment" moments that always slip right out of his fingers because he lets them. He doesn't try to hold onto them, and neither does Cas, and maybe they shouldn't.

    Cas kisses him like no one else does, like no one else ever has. Dean absolutely does not think about it unless it's happening to him, and then he doesn't have the ability to think at all. What does it say about him that he occasionally kisses his best friend, who's a man? Dean doesn't know, and he doesn't really want to find out, either.

    Summary

    So, the first thing that happens is Castiel comes back.

    ~~~

    "Right," Dean says eventually, gruffly. He looks down at his shoes. "I'm not gonna tell you how to live your life, man. It's—you know, yours. Do your thing, love who you love, whatever. I can't really stop you from loving me, if that's what you've decided to do, but I don't—I can't—"

    "I know," Castiel murmurs, still just smiling a little, not looking heartbroken at all. "Don't worry about it, Dean, that's all I ask."

    "So we're—" Dean risks a glance up, swallowing thickly. "We're good?"

    Castiel hums. "We're good."

    Summary

    “I know how that is. Husbands: can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. Mine’s the same way. Probably would’ve stormed out of here sooner than yours did.”

    Her words send Dean reeling, knocking the air out of him in a way strangers haven’t been able to do in a very long time. He can’t even find the words to correct her until she’s in the middle of another sentence.

    “He’s not my husband.” She blinks at him. “I mean, we aren’t even together. We’re just friends,” Dean clarifies. For the life of him, he can’t figure out why it sounds unbelievable to his own ears.

    ---

    Five times Dean corrects someone about his relationship with Cas, and one time he realizes he doesn't need to.

    Summary

    Cas comes back. It's not exactly the reunion that Dean is expecting.

    ~~~

    Dean stares at him, flummoxed. Cas quite literally poured his heart out to Dean, gave a truly sappy and distressingly romantic speech and everything, then proceeded to give his life so that Dean could live his. And he wants to act like he doesn't want to see Dean, be around him, touch him?

    Actually, Dean's ninety-nine percent sure that Cas probably wants to fuck him, and while he has no clue how he feels about that, he's pretty goddamn sure that means Cas doesn't get to act like this and make it authentic.

    It feels strangely real, though, as if Cas wants nothing more than to get as far away from him as possible. This is a blatant contradiction. Even someone as weird as Cas doesn't want to get away from the person they have the desire to fuck five ways to Sunday, that they're in love with. That's not how these things work, so Dean isn't buying it.

    Summary

    “There you are,” the Empty says, in Dean’s voice. It’s cold, like Dean’s eyes are cold, his expression set in contempt. It’s the expression Cas feared, he realizes, all the times he thought about saying it. Revulsion. It makes him feel sick in the way that goes beyond physical, here where there is nothing physical left.

    The moment before it happened had been so sweet it covered up all the hurt. For years, Cas had been holding back those words, biting down on his tongue to keep from saying them. And now he had said it, and he knew that it was good, knew that it was worth it. But on the other side there is only this.

    --

    In the Empty, Cas dreams of his regrets, until someone comes looking for him.

    Summary

    “Oh yeah, there might have been some small details I forgot to mention about the bond,” Gabriel teased.
    “What kind of details?” Dean growled uneasily.
    “Oh just the Holy Matrimony kind,” Gabriel smirked.
    -
    When Cas's grace is running out for the second time, the Winchester brothers enlist the help of a certain archangel to save his life. Gabriel comes up with the perfect solution: Dean and Cas bond. This seems like a great plan until Dean discovers too late what the bond really means. Gabriel informs him, much to his delight, that he is now Angel Married to Cas with no way of reversal. Little does Dean know, Gabriel is messing with him and the bond isn't a marriage at all. Cue a bunch of embarrassing misunderstandings as Dean struggles with his new "marriage" to Cas.

    Summary

    Sam was pretty sure he could read every single gay friendly guide to coming out or supporting queer family members ever written and literally none of them would even imply that arguing with gay people that they were actually just homophobic constituted as "ally behavior". However, Sam was equally sure that none of those book authors had found themselves accidentally watching their brother get pounded by an Angel of the Lord at 9 am on Tuesday, so Sam was pretty sure he might actually still have the higher ground. Now, if only Jack would stop trying to bond with Dean using gay slurs long enough for Sam to convince everyone of that, he might just be able to cobble together some remnant of sanity or, failing that, dignity.

    Or, the one where Sam desperately wants to invent PFLAG but Dean won't stop teaching Jack gay slurs
