Dean, Sam and Castiel have just finished a hunt, when a door to the future opens and another Dean falls out of it. Dean is not entirely happy about this “Other-Dean” and it gets even weirder when he sees how the guy flirts with his…uh the angel.
For a long time, Castiel thought that every earthly possession other than the immediately necessary was excess to requirement. But Dean – Dean who named his car, who keeps a photograph of his mother in his wallet, some thirty-plus years after her death, who still has the crumpled ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign with a sleeping pelican emblazoned on it from the Microtel outside of Roanoke where he first kissed Castiel, clumsy and unsure, under the unsteady fluorescence of an exhausted bathroom bulb – is sentimental.
It puzzles Castiel, where Dean draws the line between what is meaningful and what it is worthless.
“You… got me a dog?” Ryan looks more confused than displeased, which Shane counts as a win in his favor.
“Yep,” he answers, popping the ‘p’ and grinning as Ryan’s face scrunches up in annoyance. “You’ve been saying that you wanted one and she kind of… fell into my lap, so. Felt like a sign.”
Ryan laughs. “A sign, huh?” He’s playing at nonchalance but Shane can tell he’s curious now. “What does she look like?”
Shane bites his lip, recalling the red-eyes he’d had to magic away and the mouthful of teeth that would only grow sharper as she grew older. “She’s a little angel, Ry,” he fibs.

The first time it happened, it was innocent. The next few times, not so much.
Cas was resurrected. Dean told Cas that he loves him, that he can have everything he wanted, but Cas has to stay with him. Cas promised that he would. The thing is, he didn’t realize how literal Dean was being.
Now, Cas works on rebuilding Heaven with the angels, while he builds a new life with Dean. Neither of those things are as easy as Cas would have liked.
“Angels have been interfering for too long,” Jack insists. “Humanity deserves some peace, and I intend to give it to them.”
“Then why did Cas go back?” Anna demands.
“That doesn’t matter,” Cas says, willing Anna to just let it go.
“Yes it does!” she argues instead.
“And Heaven deserves some peace too!” Jack continues, raising his voice. “That won’t happen if we’re getting into conflicts on Earth.”
“Then why does Cas get to go back and I don’t?”
“That’s different,” Jack says. Cas cringes.
“Why, because it’s the Winchesters?” Anna asks. “The old God is dead, why are they still the centre of the universe?”
“Because it’s Dean,” Cas says.
“And I love him!”
"It's still not fair. You can't set up rules and exceptions and call Heaven free."
