DC Dystopia was a challenge in Supernatural fandom focusing on dark story tropes. All stories had to focus on the pairing of Dean/Castiel or the RPF pairing of Jensen/Misha. It ran for three rounds between 2011 - 2013, the first and the third challenge were run like a big bang challenge, although authors could choose whether they wanted to write a smaller fic of 5000 words or a full fic of 15,000 words, authors who chose 15,000 words got two pieces of art made for their fic. The second challenge was a reverse bang.

Round 1

Title: Where Such Roads Always Lead
Author: agirlnamedtruth
Artist: usarechan
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural; Slash.
Pairings: Dean/Castiel
Rating: NC17
Word Count: ~18,000
Warnings: Explicit sexual content, violence, torture (both main and non-main characters), background alcoholism, explicit language, AR/canon deviation. Author's Note: I'd like to thank my beta verucasalt123 for being so much more than a beta. I'd also like to thank my artist, usarechan who not only has created such beautiful artwork but has put in an astonishing amount of work and effort, she really went above and beyond.
Summary: Set directly after Castiel's death, Dean is struggling to cope (that is where canon ends). What Dean doesn’t know, to begin with, is that Castiel’s punishment is to have to watch Dean, unable to be seen or heard. Dean’s denial of his death, prompted by a series of dreams, turns into an unshakeable faith that he’s still alive. A fellow Angel takes pity on their situation and ramps up Cas’ powers, allowing Castiel and Dean to have a more physical relationship. However that short recompense becomes their downfall. Meanwhile Crowley and The Leviathan have their own plans to claim the world. With Dean driven half mad by Cas’ sudden disappearance and the price for Cas’ crimes being his Grace, they can’t even see the world ending around them. A rather angst, desperation fuelled fic, focusing on emotional outbursts and a unhealthy astral relationship.

They live in what used to be Kansas, in what used to be the United States. Now known as Republica, physical aliments are a thing of the past, mental illness is highly monitored and fixed, and everyone lives as a caricature of America in the 1950s, where men are men, women are women, and anything out of the norm is considered deviant. Dean struggles with the guilt of wife's death, and the feelings that he's always had towards his best friend.

Word Count: 17, 010

Summary: As Castiel goes around the world wrecking havoc under his new title of 'God', the Winchesters find themselves forced to contain him before things get too out of hand. It is from there where the beginning of the end starts, as they find a certain ritual that will bind anything to their control and use it on Castiel. The result: Dean holding the leash that controls the most dangerous being on Earth, and he'll soon learn that keeping a God in your control isn't anything that its cracked up to be, especially when the world finally discovers about the existence of the supernatural. A post Season 6 AU/future fic featuring angst, drama and a tiny bit of action.

Summary: Two years after Sam Winchester goes to Hell, with the world once again hanging in balance and Castiel hating himself for the decisions he’s been forced into making, Dean Winchester agrees to loan out his soul to power up one of Heaven’s weapons. It’s an alright plan except for the fact that, with Dean’s soul out of the picture – and with Castiel exhausted from the war, and overwhelmed by the pressure of never once letting himself be anything but the perfect little solider – Dean and Castiel seem to be heading towards something that Castiel’s not sure either of them can come back from.

Summary: Filled with the souls and grace and demonic presences from Purgatory, Castiel proclaims himself the new god and demands Dean, of all humans, kneel before him. Sam is broken and Dean gets Castiel to agree to fix him by rashly promising to do anything. Anything means becoming an unwilling consort to the new god as he destroys the wicked and blesses the few good and begins his not so benevolent conquering of Earth. Meanwhile, Sam, Bobby and Crowley scramble to find a way to depower Castiel...with a little help from one of the beings trapped within him. A/U Season 7 with no mention of the leviathans and my own take on the church and political office scenes in 7.1.

A/N: All my thanks to asteraoth for being a wonderful (and truly patient!) partner. The chance to get stories claimed by artists like you is why I keep signing up for these things.:) And of course thank you to aerilex, who continues to be made of beta reading magic. Written for round 3 of dc_dystopia.
Summary: Winchester Auto Body has seen better days. With their father gone and Sam away at school it's all on Dean to keep the place afloat – so it's hard for him to admit he's failing. Bills are piling up and creditors are calling but Dean knows that if he could just push a little bit harder, find a few more hours in the day he could turn it around. In fact, there's a restoration job in the shop right now that would go a long way toward solving his problems. Unfortunately, the due date is the next morning and Dean knows there's not a chance in hell of him finishing on time. But when he wakes up the next morning the car is perfect. This becomes a pattern, Dean waking up in the morning to find work he'd left undone finished overnight until his curiosity gets the better of him; he stakes out the shop one night and finally discovers the identity of his mysterious assistant: a beautiful, winged – and naked – elf calling himself Castiel. As the two of them start working together the curiosity turns to fascination and finally to something more but there are words Castiel can't say and choices he can't make – not without consequences Dean can't understand. An AU based on the fairy tale "The Elves And The Shoemaker."

Summary: When Dean is left a grand manor in an unknown man's will, all of his troubles seem to be solved. Yet when he arrives there's a monster waiting for him, a nightmarish amalgam of different creatures. Dean soon realises that he is trapped in the middle of nowhere with no hope for escape or rescue. To complicate matters further every night a 'man' named Castiel appears in his bedroom in complete darkness, never allowing his face to be seen. Castiel's touch brings both pain and pleasure and though Dean tries to resist it at first, he feels himself falling for the man he knows he should despise. Castiel feeds off of Dean's energy, gathering more power to break the curse upon him. Many have come before Dean, but this one, Castiel knows, is special and may just be his undoing.
