    Summary

    “People out there, Dean? They’ll chew you up and spit you out. You gotta learn to exist in the hearing world, or you’re never going to get anywhere. Learn to deal with it,” Dad had said, over and over.

    Dean knows it's bullshit.

    But that doesn’t mean it's easy to do any different, even with his Dad long gone.

    Fighting the world and with something to prove, Dean Winchester goes back to college, years after he initially dropped out. After a lot of persuasion from his found family, Dean agrees to have an interpreter assist him with his classes.

    Enter Castiel Novak, a gorgeous ASL interpreter who might be even more stubborn than Dean.

    Summary

    Only a very few people in the world know that the celebrated and reclusive poet Jack Allen is just Kansas mechanic Dean Winchester, a high school dropout with a few bucks to his name. Not that it matters anymore; life has left him so wrung out he never wants to pick up another pen.

    Until, that is, a string of coincidences leads Dean to auditing a poetry course with one Dr. Castiel Novak. The professor is wildly intelligent, devastatingly handsome...and just so happens to be academia's foremost expert on the poetry of Jack Allen.

    Summary

    The thing is, Dean is okay with being bisexual. He's come to terms with it, ya know? He's got eyes, and he can see that men are hot sometimes; whatever, not a big deal. He's perfectly fine with it. 

    In theory. 

    Not so much in practice. 

    *

    Dudes are a no-no, outside of looking. He's not budging on this one, so it's with confidence that he announces, "There ain't a guy in the world who's going to change my mind, Sam."

    "You're tempting the universe to make fun of you again," Sam sing-songs.

    "The universe doesn't have shit to do with this," Dean argues.

    Sam hums. "Whatever you say, man."

    But, as it turns out, the universe has a lot to do with this, and it never really misses a chance to mock him, drag him down, kick him while he's curled into a fetal position, then take him out back and shoot him while laughing cruelly at his misery.

    Meeting Cas is precisely what that feels like.

    Summary

    "I mean, you’re–” He gestures at Cas, in his neat oxford shirt and nice pants. “–and I’m a high school dropout who tattoos for a living.”

    Wherein Dean makes a hefty living as a tattoo artist who owns the space next to Gabriel's cafe. Sam attends the local university. When Gabe's cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam's university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma's coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That's just logic.
