Still, when he went home for his dad’s funeral with Sam, Dean had no idea who would be waiting there to turn his entire world upside down. Cas had spent so many of his teenage years in love with his best friend Sam’s big brother that he was half-convinced he’d embellished Dean’s attributes in his memory. Too bad for his heart that when Dean came back, he’d only gotten more attractive with age. He was still the best looking omega Cas’d ever known. Even worse was that Dean was attracted to him too because no matter how much Cas wanted him, Dean was only there until he fixed up John’s house, then he was headed back to California. So the question was, could they keep their hearts from breaking when he did?

Summary: “Sometimes the path that has been laid out before you, doesn’t always mean that it’s the path you are destined to choose.” Dean gets a call from a couple of hunters who need some extra backup on a case. When he meets up with them, Dean learns that these guys have enslaved an angel who helps them out on hunts. Dean is aware that hunters sometimes force vamps and werewolves and the like to help them on hunts, but this is the first time he’s encountered an angel. Dean is pretty indifferent about it, he’s got other things to worry about. Except, he sees first hand the way these hunters treat the angel, Castiel, and the longer the hunt goes on, the more time he spends with the angel. Bottom line: Castiel doesn’t deserve the abuse he’s receiving. As time goes on, Dean discovers he has to come to terms with the feelings he has for Castiel and go against the ideologies of the whole hunter community; which demand that all monsters are evil and should either be enslaved or put down. He has to come to terms with the fact that maybe it’s not just monsters who are evil. Sometimes humans are too.

Summary: Dean’s doing a really shitty job of dealing with Castiel’s death. He can’t eat, he can’t sleep, and he can’t stop drinking. But worst of all, he can’t stop kicking himself for thinking he had more time. He should’ve known better. Every day’s a gamble living the way they do, and Cas had lost in the worst possible way. Now Dean’s stuck drowning in the aftermath, telling himself over and over that he’d do things differently if he just had one more chance. The Winchesters wouldn’t have any luck if it weren’t for bad luck, though, so he really shouldn’t be surprised when the angel he’s been pining for shows up with a familiar face but absolutely no memories. How’s he supposed to make things right and keep his promise to himself when Cas doesn’t even know who he is? And how’s he supposed to keep his distance when Cas keeps looking at him like that?

But when he reaches the last cell in the barn, the largest and most secure, and glimpses for the second time the creature crouching just beyond the bars, Dean knows that he won’t be able to distance himself from this one the way he does with the others. This one is different. The angel looks up.

Summary: There is a distance between memory and reality and it doesn’t always look as you’d expect it to. Sometimes it’s a tangible thing, a long stretch of deserted back roads. Pavement, patched and faded from years of weather and wear. Sometimes, it doesn’t have a look at all, but a sound. The whirr and buzz of an old Polaroid camera printing a photo. There is a distance between then and now. Sometimes the distance is small, just the space of an exhale. Sometimes it’s fathomless, like the fall from heaven to earth. Castiel is a man making his way across the chasm between divinity and humanity. A distance between who he was, and who he is now. Along the way he learns about himself, the family he finds, the memories he makes, and all of the moments he manages to capture in-between.

Dean holds his hands up and shakes his head. “Shit, man, I swear I’m not trying to—”

Castiel has had enough, though, so he flicks his wrist and pushes Dean over one of the tombstones and down to the ground. Dean falls with a grunt and tries to stand up quickly, but Castiel keeps him pinned to the ground with a raise of his eyebrow.

Dean Winchester, however, has his own choice words about them and that is that they’re friggin’ creepy. Now his brother might say that his “cyborgphobia” is a mixed result of some adolescent trauma bullshit and the circumstances around their father’s death, but Dean’s pretty sure his squeamishness is more to due with the fact that they are human corpses that are running on computer software. They’re a B rated horror movie just waiting to happen! The last thing Dean expects is to end up harboring a renegade Cyborg–which besides being crazy and reckless is also very much illegal. Even though Dean should be turning C45-T-L over to the proper authorities, he just can’t seem to go through with it. Cas is different than his robot brethern, and it’s not just because he can talk, has horrible posture, and a strange obsession with origami. It’s because when Dean looks into his eyes he doesn’t see a cold machine looking back, but instead he sees something familiar in those eyes; curiosity, excitement and loneliness. He sees… Well something human. And to him that’s worth protecting.

Summary: Part of Dean/Cas Reverse Bang 2019 - Fic in Response to Anyrei’s wonderful art (shown in chapter’s 1 & 4) The story begins during Ep. 9x9, and it will span past the end of S11. Cas doesn’t take Theo’s grace in 9x9, thus leaving him human. Sam expelled Gadreel at the end of 9x8. So Sam and Dean are on outs after all that craziness, Cas is still human and not handling it well, Dean Winchester is just himself and we all know how well that usually plays out. Given all of that, prepare for angst, happiness, tears, and outright screaming for characters to just get over their stupid fears. What will happen when Dean and Cas are both human and in bad places in their lives? Dean tries to take care of Cas when he’s injured, but Cas does just as much healing for Dean when they both give in to their desires. Follow them through their stupid pining, a cute mini-case where Cas becomes a rock god, and so much pain. Trust me, the journey will be worth the tears. No matter what happens, this fic ends happy. Keep that in mind and enjoy!!

Summary: Dean Winchester was not your typical omega. This was obvious to anyone who saw him, as he was taller and broader than most male omegas. In fact, most people naturally assumed he was an alpha. Not that Dean minded being different. Dean’s dating attitude was unusual. Dean tended to date around. Alphas, betas, omegas, it didn’t matter. If Dean liked their personality and enjoyed looking at them, he would usually ask them out. He wasn’t looking for a mate. He didn’t want to settle down, and all the people who were close to him just accepted that, and didn’t push, unlike the families of most omegas in their society. Enter Nick Monroe, a federal agent with a love of classic cars. An alpha, as most law enforcement personnel were. It turned out to be Dean’s longest running relationship. Nick was great. He didn’t care that Dean wasn’t the typical “stay at home” omega. Nick was great, he was Dean’s ideal alpha. Until he wasn’t. Hospitalized, he was placed in the care of one Dr. Castiel Novak, an alpha who specialized in omega recovery. He switched majors in med school when his own mate was attacked, violated, and brutalized, taking their own life when they suffered a miscarriage.

Dean thinks that maybe the prince doesn’t have any intention of doing it at all, and if that’s the case, it’ll be Dean who’ll face the consequences.

“Are you doubting yourself, my lord?”

When the demonic noble captures an angel, the son of God himself, Lord Alastair’s latest ploy threatens to obliterate the already precarious peace of the entire realm.

Dean put his game face on and smirked. “Sorry, lady. I don’t have my little black book anymore. But I’m guessing it must not have been that memorable, because I am drawing a blank.”

The slap was hard, nails making stinging cuts in his cheek.

“So, not a former one night stand?” Dean asked, keeping his voice monotone. “Witch then?” Dean cocked his head, ignoring the head rush had his stomach lurching, and smiled widely, “ Did I drop a house on your sister?” Dean knew goading her could be a mistake, but any information she let slip in her temper was information he hoped he could pass to his angel.

Dean’s been kidnapped. Despite the circumstances, he remains confident that Sam and Castiel will find him. While in and out of consciousness, Dean keeps himself occupied with thoughts of his blossoming romantic relationship with his angel best friend.

Summary: Castiel was an Alpha, despite what everyone always guessed upon meeting him. He was tall, and he had the stern and imposing profile, but, to most people, those Alpha traits were where it ended. He had a lithe, runner’s frame, with trim waist and thick thighs. “Child-bearing hips” he’d been told. Though, obviously, no children would be born of him. This scuffling man, though. He was… round. Potentially child-bearing. And Castiel was sure his true mate wasn’t either of the other two men. Or Castiel is an Alpha that doesn’t believe in true mates but sniffs one out anyway.
