    Summary

    In the kitchen, Dean doesn’t notice the glowing syringe on the counter until he finishes filling a plastic cup with water, a sippy lid stretched over its top. He blinks at the syringe, eyeing the frighteningly-thick gauge of its needle, the bold glass barrel swirling with a silver-blue hue, its glow muted by the folded piece of paper draped over it.

    Blood’s in the fridge, the note says. Kaia thinks maybe this’ll work? Beneath it, cramped and scribbled, as if in an afterthought, Good luck. Don’t get yourself killed. — Claire

    Grace, extracted from a human once possessed by an angel. The last traces left when an angel moves on for good.

    This is it. One last ditch chance to save Cas. And when it doesn’t work out, Dean will…

    Dean will have to give up and finally move on. No point keeping this chapter of his life open, making himself heartsick over impossible dreams.

    Summary

    Dean can't remember a time when his life didn't revolve around taking care of people. He took care of Sammy when he was in and out of rehab, took care of his Dad when he was drinking, took care of his Mom when she was too dragged down by everything to take care of herself.

    He knows what his life is going to be. He's going to finish college, join the marines and keep taking care of his family, until he marries a woman and gets a family of his own to take care of.

    And it's not that hard to toe the party line, at least until he meets Cas. Someone who is fiercely independent and overwhelmingly compassionate, Dean can't help but be intrigued. It's not like he's swimming in friends, after all, what's a little time spent cultivating a relationship with someone real? Even if his parents and ROTC buddies and everyone else would disapprove.

    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

    In which Amara doesn't bring back Mary, she brings back John Winchester.

    Dean is uncertain what Amara's meaning is when she brings John back, and struggles with coming to terms with the new family dynamic. Sam tries harder to keep the peace than he used to, and Cas does not get along with John at all- though he tries. Testosterone is at an all-time high as these four men struggle to coexist in the hunting world with very different ideologies.

    We explore just how much the brothers have changed in the ten years without their father's guidance, the trauma they still haven't resolved, and the feelings that Dean and Cas hold for one another despite the very real and new barrier that is John.

    Summary

    It’s been six months since Sam left to go to Stanford, and two months since John died on a random, nameless vamp hunt. Dean is all by himself, barely hanging onto his sanity, throwing himself into hunts so the emptiness around and inside him seems a little more bearable.

    One such hunt leads the Omega to Silver Peak, a small Washington town where someone is targeting Alphas and killing them gruesomely. Dean’s plan is to get in and get out, but that changes when he walks into the Honeybee Bakery and meets Castiel Novak.

    Suddenly, Dean finds all of his buried desires for a family, an Alpha, and a normal life coming roaring to the surface, and they aren’t backing down. It doesn’t help that every time he thinks he finds a solid reason why a life of happiness and love can’t be for him, Castiel somehow manages to find a counterargument without even trying.

     

    Or, a loosely-canon A/B/O story where Castiel is just a sweet, gentle Alpha civilian and Dean is a lonely Omega hunter starving for any scraps of affection and love he can get.

    Summary

    Dean knows that demons aren’t real. He’s spent almost his entire life traipsing around the country after his Dad, watching him scam people out of their money, all in the name of “faith”. He knows exactly how hollow and fake it all is. But he loves his Dad, in spite of all the crap he’s put Dean through, all the hatred he’s let fester inside his own son. And Dad hasn’t been home in a few days. Sammy already left him, now Dad’s gone, and the only crumb to follow is the name of a faith healer called Emmanuel.

    He doesn’t have a choice. Even when the world starts turning into a creepy, haunted house around him. Even when he’s convinced he’s going insane. And even when this “Emmanuel” turns out to be entirely different from what he seemed.

    He has to find Dad.

    Summary

    At the tender age of 16, Omega Dean Winchester was kidnapped by Beta Alastair Diamone and the Aryan Brotherhood after his father got too close for comfort to their organization. Forced to quickly come to terms with his place in the world, Dean becomes little more than a fuck toy for the Brotherhood, kept for convenience and little more. For over five years, Dean endures malnourishment, mistreatment, and even a miscarriage at the hands of the Brotherhood.

    On one of the rare occasions where Alastair takes him to a business meeting to show him off, he catches the eye of Pakhan Castiel Krushnic, the cold and calculating Alpha leader of the Russian Mafia who's not called "The Angel of Death" for nothing. Inexplicably, Castiel goes to great lengths to remove Dean from Alastair's possession, ending the terrible cycle of abuse Dean has faced, but not erasing the trauma of the last four years.

    When misunderstandings and miscommunication get in the way, will these two be able to pull through it together, or will Dean be broken down further?

This place that, Dean told him once, drunk enough that his eyes got soft and his cheeks got dark and his mouth trembled, he picked out especially for Cas.

    *

    Castiel comes back, and he goes home.

    Summary

    Cas finds an artifact in the Bunker and touches it before Dean can. He's transported to an alternate timeline, set half a year after Dean returns from Hell. While there, he's surprised to find that this Dean and this Castiel have established the same disciplinary dynamic as himself and his Dean back home.

    When Dean puts himself in danger on a hunt, it's clear he's going to need to pay for it. Only Cas isn't so sure about everything. The Castiel of this timeline is just as cold and unfeeling as he was as a soldier of Heaven. How will he know how to take care of Dean properly?

    It seems, in this case, Cas will just have to teach him.
