    Summary

    Before he was even born, Jack made Castiel a promise. When he doesn’t keep it after becoming God, Castiel knows something is wrong.

    Together, father and son find a way to break free from Chuck’s final illusion and reset the timeline to just before Dean succumbs in the barn. An incensed Castiel heals Dean before flying the two of them back to the bunker, where he intends to lecture Dean on how easily he’d accepted his pointless death and parroted Chuck’s words.

    For his part, Dean just wants to be sure his angel is really back. He wants to feel it.

    In the end, spread out over the map table, both of them get what they want.

    Summary

    And finally, Dean thought about Cas.

    What it would all mean to have Cas in his entirety, in every way imaginable. To have him sleep caressed and sun-kissed beneath early morning sheets, the weight of his fingers tracing Dean’s palm down peaceful corridors, his scent cloaked in Dean’s very bones. To have his warmth as comfort and his hands as a guide that slid over Dean’s skin with familiarity. No more tentativeness, no more skimming the edges and tracing the seams of their story.

    Peace. He wanted peace. But with Cas back from the Empty with his memories shredded, and Jack nowhere to be seen, what would peace even look like? And, after everything, was it something Dean deserved?

    Summary

    Dean to Sam in s15e20, about missing Jack and Cas:

    “You know what? That pain's not gonna go away. Right? But if we don't keep living, then all that sacrifice is gonna be for nothing.”

    Not much later, Dean honors the sacrifice by getting himself killed on a regular hunt.

    A Destiel fix-it fic featuring Castiel’s mixtape, praying Sam, Heaven-rebuilding Jack, three new (or old) archangels, the fabulous Queen of Hell and just for the fun of it, Crowley too. Canon compliant until that damned REBAR.

    Or; the story in which it takes a village to raise Dean above his issues and push into the arms of Cas.

    Summary

    He's staring again, he realizes. He keeps catching himself, old habits screaming at him to look away, stop being obvious. But he doesn't have to stop, not anymore, not ever—so he looks. And when Cas meets his eye, instead of deflecting or snarking out a joke or excuse, he just smiles. It's already getting easier.

     

    Cas smiles back and tilts his head. "What is it?"

    "Nothing, just... can't believe we get to have this, you know? It's—I never thought I’d have… with anyone, definitely not with you. I just—I keep looking up expecting you to be gone. I’m gonna open my eyes and none of it was real. Gonna be like that for a while, probably.”

    Summary

    These are the things you hide, when you’re John Winchester’s oldest son:
    A feather Sammy found and gave you.
    A piece of satin you cut from a nightgown you swiped from the thrift store. You like to keep it in your pocket and rub it between your fingers.
    A romance novel left behind in a motel. You tape the cover of a Stephen King novel on the front.
    A picture of Robert Plant hidden under the fabric on the bottom of your toiletry bag.
    A cassette of Queen, a cassette of The Beatles.
    You like to draw. Knights and dragons and cowboys. A mockingbird. A lily. A boy in your class.
    You rip that one up and burn it.

    We follow Dean through important times in his life as he slowly learns to accept who he is and figures out what a happy ending means for him.
