Meg and Castiel are antagonists, on opposite sides of the build up to the Apocalypse, but later they become reluctant allies. They kiss in season 6. In Season 7 Meg looks after Castiel who has been committed to an asylum. In season 8 Meg admits to Sam, in around about way, that she has feelings for Castiel, but later in the same episode dies at the hands of Crowley.
The pairing was originally referred to as Holy Hell. It was the first Angel/Demon pairing in the fandom. More recently, Holy Hell refers to the pairing of any angel with any demon, and the Cas/Meg pairing is more commonly referred to as Megstiel.

In some cases, Meg is returned to Earth without her memories. Sometimes she is no longer a demon, while in other works she is in a new body. Castiel often helps her deal with the trauma of her death.
- All Human AUs: place Meg and Castiel in a universe where there are no angels or demons, and these two aren't enemies.
