deancastiel is a livejournal community for fans of Dean/Castiel on Supernatural. It was founded within hours of the first episode with Castiel airing, and fans were posting fanfic by the weekend.
According to the profile page, almost any content related to the ship is allowed: "A home for Dean & Castiel EVERYTHING - fics, pics, icons, vids, discussion - you name it!" RPF is not allowed, though a list of where to post RPF is provided. The profile page also describes a detailed spoiler policy before listing any other community rules. Posting is "semi-moderated"; "Members may be put on unmoderated posting for consistently following rules and guidelines, though members must keep in mind that unmoderated posting is a privilege and not a right."
The community was backed up to Dreamwidth in April 2017, following LiveJournal's TOS change and server migration to Russia. As of October 2018, the community has 15,354 posts; 85,999 comments; and 6,792 members.
