    Summary

    When Cas almost died the day Jack was born and Dean was forced to retire, Dean thought his life was over. Being forced to slowly rebuild his life on an unexpected path and trying to be a normal human with his best friend and a newborn has been rough but it may just be the very thing he was looking for.

    Sam thought he knew what was happening in Dean’s life pretty well. They talk regularly but when he visits the house that Dean, Cas, and now toddler Jack have been living in for over two years, Sam wonders if things are what he thought during his week long vacation with Eileen. Sam thought it was just two best friends raising a kid but now...

    Maybe these two brothers can discover what happiness for the older Winchester brother and the fallen angel is through the highs and lows of this new, ordinary life. Hopefully, they all figure it out together through small deeds and acts of kindness and love.

    Summary

    Dean wasn't able to divulge much of anything to Sam, or Jack. He isn't sure what has him in the dark, in the Impala, driving to Sioux Falls. Somethin' in the back of his mind is telling him that he needs to talk to somebody, but of course the home that was Bobby isn't. Isn't a home, anymore. He could go, still; to the guy's resting place, but knows he won't.

    There's too much guilt. He can't.

    Still doesn't think he's gotten over that. He probably won't, there are some things that just...stick.

    But he recalls being told who makes a mean plate of chowder and who'd be happy to talk. And ...well another one of the things that sticks, he knows he's got to see Claire and be the one to tell her, tell her what happened. Whether or not she'll care and how much.

    Dean has to do that. And maybe, hell. Maybe he can talk. Everything's different, right? Maybe he can explain about ...Cas. That he was good. Or at least, he tried. He wasn't a monster, not - not the way Dean is, he knows.

    (Or, Dean talks to Jody and more importantly, Claire and finds out not just about how she really feels but that, surprisingly, he deserves a chance to be happy too.

    But can he? Really and truly?)

    Summary

    **This is a Twist and Shout alternate ending (see below for where it starts - spoiler for T & S if you haven't read it). If you haven't read Twist and Shout it makes more sense to read that first, although please make sure to heed the tags. If then, you return to this fic know that it is meant to start up after T & S chapter 7 and acts as an alternative to the rest of that artfully written but tragic fic.**

    Dean Winchester hated hospitals, but in June of 1976 he found himself in the waiting room of San Francisco General waiting for Bobby to be discharged when a gurney rolls in and a man Dean has never seen frantically gives the name of the critical patient to the staff at the desk.

    “Castiel, Castiel Novak.”

    Dean spilled his coffee as he stood straight up stopping himself from running to the desk. This couldn’t be real.

    This wasn’t happening. He must have heard wrong.

    And with that Dean found he couldn't escape the pull of his past.

    Summary

    Dean wasn't exactly sure how he'd ended up here.

    Three hours earlier, his evening had been perfectly ordinary. 

    No bars, no walls, no furious angels, certainly no horny douchebags.

    Okay, maybe one horny douchebag. But that had been Dean himself, so that was fine. 

    Yeah, so, it had been one of those evenings. When it was just too much, that feeling inside him, that nagging, longing, craving of something (someone) he didn't dare put a name to. It had been there for a very long time now, only getting stronger over the years the more Dean tried to push it down. And try to push it down, he did.

    Dean needed distraction. And he knew just where to find it.

    ~oOo~oOo~oOo~
    Or our typical Dean drags Cas to a bar for distraction, gets jealous and things happen.

    Summary

    That night, his dreams are fuzzy, half-formed sensations of rocking a baby back and forth, humming quietly, with a warm and familiar presence hovering over his shoulder.
    It feels like a happy dream, but he jerks awake in the early morning sun as if it were a nightmare.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester has just arrived back in the US after attending his brother's destination wedding. But, due to the delta variant, he needs to self isolate for ten days before he can go home. Hoping to save some money, he forgoes the expensive quarantine hotel and opts for a cheaper 'shared apartment' option. The kicker is, as a solo traveler, he gets assigned a roommate. But, Dean's got charm to spare and a tight bank account, so he's happy to share with a stranger for a while.

    It would suck if it wasn't a stranger but an ex though, right? The very ex that he's been trying and failing to forget for the past five years?

    The universe doesn't hate him that much, does it?

    (Spoiler alert: It does).

    -----

    TLDR: Cas and Dean are college exes that get stuck in isolation facility for ten days.

    Summary

    For a person who always knew he was going to die young, Dean Winchester sure had a lot
    of regrets while taking his final breaths. Or what he assumed would be his final breaths.

    This is it, Dean thinks, On a fucking witch hunt, I’m dying on a witch hunt.
    Dean stares at the ceiling of a half destroyed cabin while tears well up in his eyes, unable to
    fight or call for help, or do pretty much anything else.
    This isn’t fair, Dean thinks.
    I’m too young, Dean thinks.
    I don’t wanna die, he thinks.

     

    OR
    A witch hunt gone truly, truly wrong

    Summary

    Three words. Eight letters. Dean couldn’t remember ever saying them aloud. Maybe he had. Maybe as a child. Sometimes he had been close. In the crypt. In Purgatory. Wrapping Cas’ body in the shroud and staring at the funeral pyre.

    Summary

    In moments of pain, sometimes all one can do is sing. Maybe Dean Winchester isn't the rocker he imagined himself being, but ...well, nothing. He isn't a rocker but he does, sometimes, sing.

    And sometimes singing helps.

    After it all, Billie, Chuck, the Empty...he deserves that, for something to help, right? Right? Probably not, but

    He could get help from another, better source, if he'd just talk. Or ask. Yeah, right. Since when do either of those actions describe Dean Winchester?

    (Or, Dean opens his heart in a song that Castiel happens to hear)

    Summary

    “Hey Cas.” Dean cleared his throat and smiled up at the sky. He had started speaking to Cas every night, not sure if anyone was listening but finding some comfort in doing it anyway.
    “It’s me again. Still wondering when you’ll find the time to come see my new place. You’d like it. I have a popcorn machine now.” The front door creaked, and Dean turned to see Miracle pop his head out looking for him. With a whistle he let the dog know where he was, and Miracle lied down on the porch with his head on his paws, watching his human on top of the car. Dean chuckled and turned his face to the stars again. Miracle probably thought he had lost it, and if he was honest he did feel a little crazy.
    “I really wish you were here Cas. I miss you.”
