Summary: Castiel had know about the Winchester family line for centuries. They were an archangel bloodline, everyone knew about them. He just didn’t care. There were better things to do than worry about Winchesters, such as fighting demons. It wasn’t until all of the Earthly Garrison were called back to Heaven to prepare for the Apocalypse that Castiel took notice of the brothers, watching from above as he waited for orders. Unexpectedly, he found himself growing quite fond of Dean. Enough so that other angels begin to notice and comment. After rescuing Dean from Hell, Castiel continued to grow closer to him, despite the warnings. Of course, these things never run smoothly. Particularly when love is involved.

Summary: Castiel Novak was 16 years old, and he’d never been kissed. Or, for that matter, had he been the one doing the kissing. Point was…well. That kind of was the point. And normally, it wasn’t a state of affairs he would have been much concerned with. Except that everyone else was. Castiel spends years of his life believing something is wrong with him, that something fundamental inside of him is broken beyond repair. As he gets older and goes away to college with his best friend Hannah - who struggles with her own identity right alongside of him - he discovers there’s so much more out there he’d never dreamed of…so much that makes everything make a hell of a lot more sense to him now. He dares to hope that he can finally feel comfortable with himself…
