    Summary

    Ok, so Castiel's in love with his best friend.

    Which is what puts them here, in Dean’s car, eight hours into a nine and a half hour drive up north to bury Castiel’s mother on the grounds that he grew up on. Because it’s been eight years since Castiel cut ties with his family and left, supposedly for college, and there hasn’t been a word of communication since. Because Dean is, at his core, a good person and a better friend, and when he heard that Castiel’s mother had died and that he would need to return to his childhood home over Thanksgiving break, he knew enough to say he’d go with him.

    This is, for sure, not helping Castiel get over his inappropriately persistent feelings.

    Summary

    Dean and Cas had the kind of love romance novels are written about at the tender age of 18, and although they were sure they could make a long-distance relationship work when circumstances temporarily separated them, not everything went as planned.

    Ten years later, Dean is back in their tiny hometown, and although he has his reasons to keep his distance from the only man he’s ever loved, Cas, Sam, and Jess are determined to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    Now it seems both Dean and Cas’s happiness depends on Cas proving to Dean that he’s still worth loving despite his imperfections, and Dean accepting the love Cas has to give him even when he feels like he doesn’t deserve it.

    Can they make a relationship work again now that they’re back in the same town, or are some things better off staying in the past?

    Summary

    Brittle and battle-worn, Cas looks at him over coffee one morning and says, "I need to go," and Dean instantly knows that he's not coming back. 

    He's not really sure how he knows it, but he does. It settles into the pit of his stomach, curling hot and tight like something he instinctively wants to tear out with his bare hands. He takes a breath, and it gets stuck in his throat, hitching there. It hurts, hurts, hurts when he finally exhales. 

    "Yeah," Dean says, "of course you do," and he nods jerkily as he looks down at his phone. He doesn't say goodbye. He doesn't look up from the screen when Cas gets up and leaves the room. He doesn't finish his coffee, or move for a long time. 

    By nightfall, Cas is gone.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester, hardworking medic, has two ways of coping with the demands of the job. One, he chats online with his anonymous best friend and fellow medic, FlyBoy83. Two, he’s a member of Black & Blue, a BDSM club where he subs twice a month. One night, he’s finally paired with a blue-eyed dom he’s been eyeing for months, a man he’s waited to call Master.

    Or, the story of how Dean and Castiel are online best friends who fuck each other senselessly in real life…and never even know it.

    Summary

    The first time she meets him, he's nothing more than an almost-missed appointment. 

    ~~~

    Dean is silent for a long, tense moment, then he gruffly says, "It's not for banishing the angels. It's to summon them. So, it doesn't—it's not to get rid of 'em, but to draw 'em in." 

    Mitzi can't help but glance up at him at that. His voice is so heavy with so much unexplained pain, and she doesn't understand why, or what angels have to do with it. She knows religion can impact people. She's very aware that it can get complicated, and that it can be a huge source of pain for someone, but Dean sounds grievously wronged, somehow, as if it's a truly personal thing. 

    She pushes through, focusing back on her job, clearing her throat before murmuring, "Well, I guess we all want angels to visit us sometimes." 

    "Just the one," Dean mumbles. 

    "Your guardian angel?" Mitzi asks. 

    Dean breathes out, "Something like that. As close to one as an angel will ever get."
