    Summary

    Dean Winchester is dead. For decades, he, along with Castiel and Sam, have led a peaceful afterlife in heaven. He has everything he’s ever wanted: a home, his family and friends surrounding him, and a relationship with Cas—and he’s bored as hell. Until, one day, Chuck escapes heaven’s lock up and begins capturing souls to regain power. To stop him, Jack sends Dean, Cas, and Sam back to Earth. After so long away from hunting, will they be able to once again find their place in the family business?

    Summary

    After Castiel is dragged away to the empty, Dean flees the bunker and everything he knows. He takes a job as a live-in ranch worker. For a while, it seems like a peaceful place to be alone with his thoughts and battle his demons, but the horror that has plagued him all his life is never far behind. What seeds that are sown over a smoky summer will soon be reaped.
    "I love him" is obsession, a thought doing flips in his brain. It’s a gargoyle, spewing rainwater; ugly to deflect ugly. That, or maybe keep-your-angels-close-and-your-demons-closer; let’s keep the devils where we can see them. I love him is the curse he tries to keep at bay, shivering in the night, curled in a heap on a camping mattress, covered in army issue wool blankets in Jody’s spare bedroom.

    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

    But they are all wishes, and Dean knows that there are handful of things in this universe that he wants, but just cannot have. But he dare not put a name to them. To admit it would be to face the reality of his desires, and that is just not something that Dean deserves. Not in this world. Not in this lifetime.

    Any time that he has something worth keeping around, he needs to make sure it is not for his sake. Because whenever Dean gets even a taste of what happiness could be like, it is quickly taken away from under him.

    AKA where Cas and Dean have near the exact same problems which is why s15 ended the way it did. Lmao :))))
    Takes place from the end of season 13x23, and skips through Season 14. Currently shaping up to be continuing into season 15.

    Summary

    A finale fix-it where it's up to Kaia and Claire to save Dean and Cas from their horrible canon endings.

    After her death, Kaia's dark double is alone, drifting between the different realms of the afterlives in search of something to ground her. What she finds, instead, in the Empty, is a soul with a strange connection to Claire and Kaia - one she is desperate to understand.

    Meanwhile, Claire and Kaia hear that Dean and Sam have defeated Chuck and saved the world again. But Kaia can't help thinking there's something off about Claire's reaction to Castiel's death - like the fact that she doesn't seem to care. And neither, for some reason, does anyone else - not even Dean. But why is it that Kaia is the only one aware that anything is wrong? And can she get through to Claire before it's too late?

    Summary

    Of course he died. This was the easiest case they'd ever had. Everything was going so well it could only be paving the way for some huge cosmic punchline.

    Dean had thought dying would be the end to his story, not just another bump in the road.

    Summary

    "Dean felt resentment towards whoever first said it was better to have loved and lost than to have not loved at all, because if he had not fallen in love with Castiel, then Dean wouldn’t have felt what it was like to have his heart ripped out of his chest and try to fight on without it."

    What was going through Dean's head during Castiel's confession? How was he feeling?

    Disclaimer: None of the spoken dialogue is written by me, they are all lines from the Supernatural episode 15x18.

    Summary

    The Empty may have taken Cas, and it may have been part of a deal Cas himself made, but no way in Hell is Dean going to let it stay that way. He will do everything in his power to get Cas, his angel, back from there. No matter what.

    And that's exactly what he did.
