Castiel tells himself it was a one time thing, even if his night with a hooker named Dean changed his whole world, but he can’t keep away from the man fate keeps throwing in his path. Castiel is married and he knows his sexuality is an affront to God and everything he’s ever been told is right.
Dean tells himself he doesn’t care about the weirdo with blue eyes, but every time they meet he gets a bit closer to something like hope. Dean’s nothing but a homeless waste of space with a brother in foster care a world away and a father in the wind.
As the connection between these two lost men deepens, it threatens the carefully maintained lies their lives are built on in a story of faith, mistakes, and the journey of love.
- Part 2 of The Walk
Dean Winchester’s entire life has been dictated by his father. He had no choice but to simply submit and follow like a good soldier. However, when John dies in a car crash, he leaves his eldest son with the one thing he’s never had: free will. Allowed to finally find his own path, and no longer having to conform to his father's ideals of what his sexuality should be, he meets a dancer named Castiel. The young man has survived a severe trauma leaving him terror stricken from any form of physical contact. The story follows these two men from the noisy streets of New York City to the breathtaking open lands of Africa. Can the hunter afraid to love, and the angel unable to touch, mend their broken wings?
“I’m going to kiss you now.”
Cas pauses, giving Dean a chance to back out, but Dean just licks his lips and waits.
Cas’s mouth is up against Dean’s for a couple seconds before Dean responds, and then it’s Cas that’s being kissed senseless, because kissing is definitely not something Dean does tentatively. Dean reaches up to cup Cas’s jaw in his hand, tilting his head for a better angle, mouth plush, tasting like whiskey.
Cas tries to remember what it was like the first time he kissed a man. All-encompassing, the world jerking off its axis, the feel of stubble under his fingers intense in a way it never really is with women, as much as he loves them.
AU. Dean had a lot of shit to deal with. There was all sorts of fall-out from the death of his father. A mortgage, bills, adult shit, and being more of a dad and less of a brother for Sam.
When Sam answers the door and lets in a guy he doesn’t know, Dean thinks he might lose his mind. He can’t possibly be responsible for another thing. But Castiel looks so lost. And his eyes are so blue. And...damnit.
Letting him in the door just might lead to letting him into a lot more.

Eleven years after the war, Draco Malfoy leads a quiet, boring, and perfectly respectable life, thanks very much. Or, at least he does, until a sudden and very unexpected veela awakening causes him to throw soup all over Harry Potter in the middle of the Ministry cafeteria.
