    Summary

    A man named Cas wakes up in 2003 with no memories, but he's able to piece together a few things:

    1. Supernatural creatures exist, and most of them will hurt innocent civilians if he doesn't stop them;
    2. He has abilities that no human hunter should have, but he knows enough about human hunters to keep that to himself, and finally;
    3. He keeps running into another hunter named Dean Winchester, who seems to be about as lonely as he is if he's willing to put up with those former facts long enough to help Cas unravel the mystery of who (or what) he really is.

    For his part, Dean's still (not) dealing with Sam's departure to Stanford, and figures distracting himself with a bit of mystery and intrigue is as harmless as it gets, right? Right.

    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

    The plan boils down to three basic steps:

    1. Raise demon-slaying spirit (nobody tell Bobby).
    2. Sic it on Yellow Eyes to save their possessed dad.
    3. Cross their fingers and pray that Sam's translation was accurate, and the demon-slaying spirit will leave them alone to go kill more demons.

    (Spoiler alert: Number three doesn't work out so well.)

    Summary

    “Dream summoning?” Sam repeats as Dean floors it. “Cas, most of the stolen stuff works for dreamwalking. What do you mean, summoning?”

    Over the phone, Cas answers, “With the proper enclosed space and spell ingredients, he’ll be able to manifest the contents of his last dream. They won’t last long, an hour at the most, but the manifested ingredients only need to be real for enough time to carry out the second spell. And I’d be very surprised if the contents of that dream didn’t include back-up. He could manifest an entire army. Whatever you do, don't let him bleed on the offering.”

    “Got it,” Dean confirms, taking a turn far more quickly than his baby wants. “I’ll just tackle the guy. He doesn’t bleed, we’re good.”

    -

    Naturally, Dean bleeds instead.

    Summary

    The year is 1996, and Dean’s stuck in Kankakee, Illinois while Dad’s on a long-haul hunt. It’s not too bad. He’s even got a friend, now—even if Cas is a weird, gawky loner kid who gets way too intense about his sci-fi novels and doesn’t know how to stop staring. Just business as usual.

    Until his dad comes back, and it isn’t.

    The year is 2011, and the shadows known as ‘angels’ and ‘demons’ are falling from cracks in the sky, raining death, destruction, and monsters where they pass. When the Joint Task Force asks for their help in stopping the end of the world—John Winchester, his sons, and a ragtag band of hunters—well, that’s just business as usual, too.

    Until Dean meets the cold blue eyes of their team liaison—Dr. Castiel Novak.
